"Politicians are a persistent lot, and the longer I live, the more I notice that if they cannot get what they want going in the front door, they are more than happy to use the backdoor (or a window for that matter). For example, after the landmark Heller case from the Supreme Court, legislation on banning firearms took a backseat to going after high capacity magazines, hollow point ammunition and also the lead content of bullets ..."

"But standing one's ground is an American concept much older than that. And perhaps the man to blame was a tuberculosis-infected war veteran named John Parker. On April 19, 1775, he was the captain in command of approximately 80 members of the Lexington militia when, according to history, he issued the famous order:"

"This would be like demanding more funding for the [GSA] after seeing how its employees blew taxpayer money on a party weekend in Las Vegas."

"We don't know the facts yet, but let's assume the conclusion MSNBC is leaping to is accurate: George Zimmerman stalked a small black child and murdered him in cold blood, just because he was black."

The 300 BLK Handi-Rifle: Possibly the Most Inexpensive 300 AAC Blackout

"The Advanced Armament Corp. (AAC) has been showing off one of their latest and cheapest with a design they've been working on with their partner company Harrington & Richardson (H&R). H&R has developed a single-shot break-action Handi-Rifle chambered in AAC's increasingly popular 300 AAC Blackout (7.62x35mm or 300 BLK)."

"The Handi Rifle in 300 BLK follows the same pattern set forth by many other recent H&R single-shot guns. It's compact with a 16-inch barrel with a tight 1:7 twist. A heavy barrel and stout receiver bring the weight of the one-shot rifle up to just a hair below 7 pounds. The furniture is black polymer and comes with a medium-thickness rubber buttpad." ...

"At the annual NRA Meeting and Exhibit Guns.com ran into a small company called Snagg, which sells tiny microchips that could assist in the recovery of lost or stolen goods, or help keep track of an inventory. It caught our eye because the booth was rather busy and there were signs touting 'Not GPS tracked.' And why might that be important? you may ask. Because it means there's no chance of big brother seeing if your guns are on the move."

"The concept is no different from planting an identification chip in a dog or cat, in fact, that's where the creator Ron Wolff got the idea, a Snagg spokesman said. Wolff figured if he could do this with his dog, why can't he do it with the rest of his stuff?" ...

"Turkey hunting season is just around the corner (or already started depending on where you're at), so if you’re new to it or a novice don’t bother with the antique Browning and Remington that you got from Grandpa. Sure they’re great guns, but I would hate for you to mess one up on a rainy spring morning during a turkey hunt, so Guns.com will show you three hunting shotguns that are a little more up-to-date."

"Before we start, we have to establish a few standards. First, the shotgun needs to have a 26-inch barrel, a 3.5-inch chamber and a removable choke. Second, it has to have a synthetic camouflaged stock. Third, semi autos are great, but it’s hard to beat a pump gun ... Lastly, lets make a price point—$500." ...

"Yes, you read that headline correctly. The polarizing Governor of Arizona made a prudent legislative decision this week pertaining to a state gun bill that would have allowed people to openly carry firearms into state government buildings."

"This is the second time that Gov. Jan Brewer rejected the NRA-backed measure. As the law stands today in the state of Arizona, any government building (e.g. senior centers, libraries, city offices) can ban guns from its premises by posting a sign at the entrance. A new state house-approved bill would have taken away that power, but Governor Brewer prevented that from happening with a few swift strokes of the veto pen." ...
