Hillary’s emails on gun control:

  • Other leaked emails reveal that Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta privately wished after last year’s terrorist attack in San Bernardino, CA, that the shooter was a white man rather than a Muslim, in order to avoid linking terrorism to Islam. Because apparently Islamic terrorists are OK. Podesta also received lists of exclusively Muslims and Asians to be considered for jobs in the Obama administration. The email chain revealed that in this process, Middle Eastern Christians were purposefully excluded, because they were Christian, a blatantly illegal act.

We have a new report this week that Hillary wants VP “Shotgun” Joe Biden for Secretary of State if she’s elected.

Hillary’s connection to the Waco massacre is also in the news.

Hillary herself on cyber security:

Mississippi’s ultra-liberal congressman Bennie Thompson (D-2), the ranking minority party member of the US House Homeland Security Committee, says that if Donald Trump loses the election, he (Thompson) is concerned that Trump supporters will start a race war. Well, nobody started a race war over Rep. Thompson’s bigoted antics throughout his tenure…

Meanwhile, a top DNC official who was fired after video surfaced of his role in masterminding staged and paid violence at Trump rallies has been to the White House 342 times over the past several years, with at least 42 of those visits being directly with President Obama.

If you don’t vote, or vote for anyone other than Trump, for any reason (even a good one), that will not change the reality that if Trump doesn’t win, Hillary will.


The National Park Service says you can’t use a firearm to get an attacking bear off of you. We beg to differ, and suggest a repeating firearm with ammo left over.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis says that he believes carrying an illegal gun should be viewed as a “pre-murder” crime.

The Animal Legal Defense Fund, based in San Francisco, filed a lawsuit against the organizers of the WaKeeney coyote hunt in western Kansas, claiming the hunt constituted illegal gambling in a game of chance. Entrants paid $80 to participate in the one-day event. The grand prize of $500 went to whoever killed the most coyotes that day. The suit was settled by agreeing to not hold it again and paying the plaintiffs $2,000 in legal fees.

Although opinions vary concerning whether it is ethical or sportsmanlike to compete in hunting, fishing, or trapping activities, even when legal, the fact remains that killing a lot of coyotes is hardly based on chance rather than skill, and I doubt the plaintiffs would have prevailed in court.


“One of the main complaints that I’m hearing is, ‘You’re a police department. Your job is to get guns off the street.’ At the Campbell Police Department, we believe in the Second Amendment. We believe in people’s right to bear arms. We believe in law-abiding citizens’ right to own guns. We also believe in Ohio’s concealed carry laws.” — K-9 Officer Eric Manning, about Campbell PD raffling guns for new K-9 dog




DA: Fatal Shooting Of Man In Stabbing Rampage Was Justified

Well, duh.

CCW Travel

It came to my attention last weekend to remind everyone to learn the laws about carrying while traveling away from your home state. I use handgunlaw.us as my primary resource, followed by each state’s official website info (usually linked at handgunlaw). Remember that laws frequently change, and that what you learned last year may not be good this year. Books may be much farther behind. Also, just because your CCW permit is recognized in various other states doesn’t mean that you can carry the same way and places that you can in your home state. Don’t forget the states you’re just passing through — in some states you may need a qualified permit to carry in your car, or even just to possess a gun. I print out the needed information just a week or two ahead of time, highlight the important parts, and take it with me.

Mississippi’s open carry law, HB2, went into effect three years ago, amidst much wailing, gnashing of teeth, and lawsuits by the leftists, including some government officials* (some of whom have since been charged with crimes), because, they said, there would be blood in the streets due to the law.


Have they since admitted their error?


*Hinds County DA Robert Shuler Smith, former Hinds County Sheriff Tyrone Lewis, Hinds County Constables Jerry Moore, John Brown, Lawrence Funches and Bennie Buckner, MS State Senators Willie Simmons, Sollie Norwood, Hillman Frazier and John Horhn (also a candidate for Jackson mayor). All believed to be Democrats.

Lock your doors. And keep your head on a swivel.

About those psychopaths. Don’t know any? Oh yes you do.


If you read nothing else, read this.

The Only Ones

Jeremy Batson, identified as a former US Army Infantry team leader who served in Afghanistan with the 1st Battalion, 2nd Infantry Regiment and more recently as a private military contractor, was fatally shot during a struggle with a Goldsboro, NC, homeowner for control of the gun that Batson pulled during a home invasion early Saturday morning.

Most experts would probably advise that you avoid gun retention struggles if possible, and instead just shoot the armed perp who broke into your house and threatened you with deadly force.

USMC Lance Corporal Katherine Glennon is facing charges of felony assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, after allegedly cutting another woman’s hand and finger during an argument in North Carolina.

An unidentified off-duty police officer in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, fired his gun into a nearby day care center while unloading it at his home. The bullet went through a home wall and a fence before lodging in a wall at the day care. No one was injured. The officer works for East Cleveland and is a volunteer reserve for Cuyahoga Falls. I don’t think that’s the way to unload it.

Former Rocky Ford, CO, police officer James Ashby, 33, was sentenced this week to 16 years in prison and 5 years of parole in a second-degree murder conviction for fatally shooting a man in the back after he followed the man into his mother’s home in October, 2014. Prosecutors said Ashby, who was on duty at the time, followed the victim inside his mother’s home before shooting him and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation found the officer had no reason to believe the victim was committing a crime before he was killed.

Shooting of “children” justified? Yep.

GAO report on ATF

“The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has 25 firearms-related data systems, 16 of which contain retail firearms purchaser information from a federal firearms licensee (FFL)…” (source)


More on ATF

North Carolina Republicans affected by the firebombing of their campaign office earlier this month are accusing the Obama administration’s BATF of covering up the political motivations behind the attack, destroying evidence, and compromising the crime scene.

John Lott correctly predicts CDC accidental shooting data error


The leftists keep yelling some nonsense about more guns = more gun-related deaths. Suppose we look at the countries with the most guns per capita, and the most shooting deaths per capita. According to these folks, they should be the same list. Not even close. Only one country, Uruguay, makes both lists. In fact, the nine European nations with the lowest gun ownership rate have a combined murder rate three times that of the nine European nations with the highest gun ownership rate. From the Small Arms Survey (Switzerland).


  1. United States — 112.6 guns per 100 residents
  2. Serbia — 75.6
  3. Yemen — 54.8
  4. Switzerland — 45.7
  5. Cyprus — 36.4
  6. Saudi Arabia — 35
  7. Iraq — 34.2
  8. Uruguay — 31.8
  9. Sweden 31.6
  10. Norway — 31.3


  1. Honduras — 67.18 per 100,000 residents per year
  2. Venezuela — 59.13
  3. Swaziland — 37.16
  4. Guatemala — 34.1
  5. Jamaica — 30.72
  6. El Salvador — 26.77
  7. Colombia — 25.94
  8. Brazil — 21.2
  9. Panama — 15.11
  10. Uruguay — 11.52

The “spine whack” test.


  • Arby’s has a deer sandwich, available for a very limited time, in very few locations.
  • Remington has introduced two full-sized striker-fired polymer-framed pistols, the RP9 and RP45, in 9mm (18+1) and .45ACP (15+1), respectively. 4.5″ barrel, 26.4 oz. Picatinny under rail, interchangeable backstraps, reversible mag. release. About $500.
  • Walther's new Creed 9mm polymer pistolWalther’s new Creed 9mm polymer pistol features a pre-cocked double-action trigger system, bobbed hammer, ambidextrous magazine release, low profile steel 3-dot sights, and front and rear cocking serrations on the slide. 4″ barrel. 16+1. 26.6 oz. $399.
  • Winchester Repeating Arms has its new SX4 autoloading shotgun, basically a slightly lighter and more ergonomic SX3, which apparently is still in the lineup.
  • The Cobray Pocket Pal is a break open revolver with interchangeable cylinders — one chambered in .380ACP and the other in .22LR. The top barrel is bored for .380 while the bottom barrel is sized for .22LR. The .22LR cylinder holds five rounds while the .380 cylinder only holds three rounds. I bet they sell at least three of these guns.
  • The American Tactical Cavalry Road Agent side-by-side 12 gauge shotgun has external hammers and 18 ½” barrels; the hammers are cocked automatically on closing. A lever on the left side of the receiver acts as a safety — hammers up or down — and will also “decock” the hammers without striking the firing pins.
  • The new .375 Raptor cartridge is essentially the .308 Winchester necked up, and should work in most .308 rifles with only a barrel change. 250-270 grain bullets at 2300-2400 fps.
  • The new SAAMI-standard .33 Nosler utilizes the .404 Jeffery parent case and pushes a .338″ 225 gr. AccuBond at 3025 fps and the new 265 gr. AccuBond Long Range at 2775 fps. That’s 275 fps faster and 20% more energy than the .338 Win. Mag. and about the same as the .338 Lapua Magnum, while burning 18% less powder. A 300 gr. HPBT match load at 2550 fps will also be offered. Nosler will also have M48 rifles in 26″ barrel configurations in .33 Nosler caliber during early 2017.
  • Otis Technology is bringing out a new drop-in Picatinny rail for AK rifles, which slides on the AK rear sight base without any need to remove the rear sight. Just slide the rail over the AK rear sight and tighten the screws in an alternating sequence. About $70.
