The GOP And Gun Rights

Charles C.W. Cooke is asking why the GOP isn’t focusing on gun rights during the midterm elections?  Oh, I don’t know.  Queue up the reasons.  They have no spine – they are owned and operated by the chamber of commerce and large corporations like Monsanto and Archer-Daniels-Midland – awful people like Karl Rove are too […]

Tampa Police Department $5.4 Million Range

WTSP: Tampa Police broke ground Wednesday on a new $5.4 million gun training range. TPD says it will keep us all safer. But will it be worth that big price tag? The new firearms training facility is set to be built inside a City of Tampa complex near Port Tampa Bay. There’s little doubt it […]

God, Guns And I-594

It had to happen.  Some misguided clerics think they need to tell folks that God like I-594. Charles Stephens, the show’s director, was deeply affected by the tragic shooting at SPU. “We rehearsed there, and everything was going great, and then there was the shooting that happened,” Stephens said. He decided to reschedule the concert, […]

Notes From HPS

David Codrea: Noting that the Obama administration will “open the door to as many as 100,000 Haitians, who will now move into the United States without a visa,” The Washington Times warned Monday of a new dimension in that fundamental transformation of America President Barack Obama promised supporters. The revelation was in addition to news […]

Equipped For Survival

First, a wonderful example of being equipped and prepared for survival: A young teenager lost on a hunting trip is safe with his family Sunday night after he was missing for more than 24 hours in the Southern Colorado wilderness outside Custer County. Clayton Jones, 13, was found by family friends Sunday morning just after […]

Collectivist Inadvertently Admits No Trust In Background Checks

Salon: It’s one thing to accept and understand that plenty of reasonable and responsible people own guns and that is their constitutional right. It is another to be so outrageously afraid of legitimate and sane restrictions that you have a situation in which it is entirely permissible to carry a loaded weapon into an event […]

Notes From HPS

David Codrea: That’s a different contention than the one reporter Hartocollis began the report with, having used the specific word “carry.” Purchasing a gun, as opposed to obtaining a carry permit, are quite different things in New York, which follows the “may issue” discretion of authorities. The process is even more exclusive in New York […]

Jerry Miculek On AR-15 Grip And Stance

Via John Richardson, here is Jerry Miculek on AR-15 grip and stance. I always watch and listen carefully to Jerry explain anything.  He is an extremely successful competitive shooter.  However, I have never seen him use (or advocate use of) what I’ve called the “aggressive plates forward” stance.  Jerry puts his left leg forward (almost […]

Guns.com: A college student who was arrested after being found with two handguns on campus and a rifle in his SUV pled guilty to weapons charges Friday in what supporters call a big misunderstanding. William Dong, 23, the now-former University of New Haven student said he carried the handguns for protection against mass shootings but ran […]

Hispanics And Latinos Favor Gun Control

David Codrea has warned you: Why the “gun control” groups keep quiet about illegal immigration is understandable. Those in it for the long haul, who hope and believe Americans can be disarmed within a generation, recognize that this can give them an unbeatable political majority within a decade or two, to remake the legislatures and […]

Notes From HPS

David Codrea: Those are fine words. They ring true, like something gun owners can believe in. Or at least they would were NRA not helping Reid, Schumer and Durbin hold on to power by declining to endorse AQ-rated Republican Dan Sullivan in one of the key races needed to flip the Senate. They would were […]
