NRA election

US Senator David Clarke?

Apparently there is a move afoot to have pro-gun Milwaukee County, Wisconsin Sheriff David Clarke run against leftist Democrat Tammy Baldwin for Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate race.

Follow-up on former president Barack Obama’s big lie

From Alan Korwin, et al

To believe Mr. Hussein-Obama had no scandals you must avoid using his full name and believe:

  • If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.
  • IRS didn’t target conservative groups, and no one claimed 5th Amendment protection when asked.
  • The murderous Benghazi jihad attack was the result of a funny video tape, or didn’t even happen.
  • Solar energy company Solyndra didn’t get a half billion dollars of your money and then close.
  • Operation Fast and Furious didn’t ship thousands of guns to Mexican drug lords.
  • An unmarked plane didn’t ship $400 million dollars in unmarked cash at night to Iran, the leading state sponsor of terrorism.
  • The cash was not ransom for four Americans released immediately afterward.
  • The $1.7 billion total in cash Obama had flown into Iran, in unmarked foreign bills, bought food.
  • Nearly a trillion dollars in stimulus money created shovel-ready jobs, which people got.
  • His Attorney General Eric Holder wasn’t held in Contempt of Congress, even though he was.
  • Obama’s Secretary of State didn’t, well, that list is too long for here. She is the first woman in history to lose the presidency, twice.
  • 22 million detailed government personnel records weren’t hacked (“stolen”) by the communist Chinese, so we did nothing about it.
  • Lethal jihadi attacks on unarmed military personnel on U.S. soil were workplace violence, and had nothing to do with the global muslim jihad on western civilization.
  • Cash for clunkers was a financial windfall for the country.
  • The Iran nuclear deal was great for America.
  • ObamaPhones you subsidize, coal energy, oil pipelines, border control, Operation ChokePoint…


President Trump to continue “Fast and Furious” probe?


“If you would do this to me, in your country, why would I let you in my country?”

Apparently this American is risking his job and his life for speaking the truth. But I’ll do it with no risk, because of people like him.

Meanwhile we have a report from dailystar.co.uk that Al-Khansa, a female-only jihadi group in Iraq which serves as the religious police for other women, has now been armed with a monstrous new “metal jaw” weapon with poison on the teeth used to torture other women to death. Evil female jihadis punish other women committing crimes such as breastfeeding outside, not wearing black socks, or wearing high heels.

Progressive takeover

Meanwhile, a US college is planning to hire new professors based on the color of their skin because of the “demonstrated benefits” of avoiding particular races. Not kidding.

The Only Ones

  • Mohammad Zaki Abdu, the “third secretary” at the Afghanistan consulate in the Pakistani port city of Karachi, was shot and killed by his consulate-employed personal security guard, identified only as an Afghan national named Rahatullah or Hayatullah, inside the consulate this week.
  • Christopher Warden, 31, an active duty US Army Ranger at Fort Benning, was mistaken in identifying an apartment was where he thought his wife, who he apparently was mad at, had gone to pick up her daughter. An unidentified friend of Warden’s and a neighbor in the apartments tried to tell Warden he was at the wrong address. But Warden beat and kicked the door, then broke out a window and climbed through, where he was fatally shot by the resident.

“Leaked” ATF White Paper on Options to Reduce or Modify Firearms Regulations

The author is the second-highest ranking official at ATF, apparently angling to keep his job or get promoted (it’s dated inauguration day). Don’t for a minute believe that the ATF establishment actually subscribes to the Constitution.

The “leaked” document proposes:

1. FFL license issued for sales at gun shows only, no sales required at physical address. (This removes much of local “veto power” of FFL license issue)
2. Rational review of “armor piercing” ammo for rifles.
3. Re-importation of Certain DOD Surplus Firearms from Foreign Countries. (Garands and MI Carbines, anyone?)
4. Variances on “transfers” of Machine guns for people in DOD industry and Theater industry.
5. Finding the “use” of a firearms arm “Brace” for non-design purposes does put the firearm in the category of SBS or SBR.
6. New Study on Sporting Purposes because of increased sporting use of AK and AR style rifles.
7. Creation of a database of Agency rulings (mostly open to the public).
8. Moving of Silencers from the NFA to the GCA. (Essentially the Hearing Protection Act.)
9. FFLs to be able to sell interstate at gun shows.
10. Destructive device reform for the industry to benefit the DOD.
11. Change in the number of “crime guns” used in Demand Letter (2) from the BATFE.
12. Eliminate Demand Letter (3) (Southwest Assault Rifle Multiple sales).
13. Reconsider pending request to change from 20 year retention of records to indefinite.
14. Expanding NICS check availability for background checks by FFLs for Employees.
15. Need for an ATF Confirmed Director.
16. A list of old regulations to be considered for removal or amendment. (some significant)

ARs as relics?

We have a report that civilian production of the SP-1 model by Colt began in 1964, which means that early SP-1 rifles started becoming Curio & Relic qualified back in 2014, and that now more than 10,000 C&R AR15s exist.

(my favorite)


  • Ruger claims its new GP100 5-shot .44 Special revolver features a “triple-locking cylinder is locked into the frame at the front, rear and bottom…” Yeah, that “bottom cylinder lock” appears to be the bolt stop and it doesn’t count. See S&W’s old “Triple Lock” for the real deal.
  • Kimber recently introduced the Super Jägare, a 6″ barreled 1911 style pistol chambered in 10mm with no iron sights but factory equipped with a Leupold DeltaPoint Pro red dot sight. $2688.
  • Legacy Sports International is offering two new calibers in the Howa MiniAction line, the 7.62×39 and the 6.5 Grendel. These join the .204 Ruger, .222 Remington and .223 Remington that are already available in this rifle series.
  • Streamlight’s new 73200 KeyMate USB is an ultra-compact, hands-free area LED light that is shaped and sized like a key so that it can be hung on a key ring or zipper pull, but uses a spring gate instead of a hole or solid loop for easy hookup. The USB rechargeable light has three modes: High (35 lumens); Low (16 lumens); and Flash (35 lumens). Run time of one hour on High and two hours in both the Low and Flash modes. Charge time is approximately two to three hours. The KeyMate USB features a metal body and offers durable, reinforced construction. It measures 2.9″ long, 1.08″ wide, and weighs 0.5 oz. $24 at Amazon.
