NRA, Newsletters, Tactics

You don't need 30 rounds to hunt correct, but the 2nd amendment was not turned against us, according to NRA newsletters.


Don’t forget to vote for the four – and ONLY the four – Board candidates recommended:

  • Jeff Knox
  • Phil Journey
  • Rocky Marshall
  • Dennis Fusaro

Also vote “yes” on the bylaw amendment.

The New York State Rifle and Pistol Association has made its recommendations for other candidates for the 2024 NRA Board election. DO NOT follow them.

How much does it cost to fly two people from Phoenix to Savannah? Well if they’re friends of Wayne LaPierre, it cost you $33,000.

“All told, the bogus spending and lost income amount to something north of a billion dollars!It sure sounds like felony embezzlement to me.

NRA Interim EVP Andrew Arulanadam announced that a Hunting Division would be established within General Operations. It would join the existing Community Engagement, Competitions, Education and Training, and Law Enforcement divisions. Heading the new division will be Peter Churchbourne as Managing Director. He has been the director of the NRA’s Hunter’s Leadership Forum for the past five years and has been with the NRA since 2015. Prior to that, he had spent 17 years with Ducks Unlimited. This is probably just an effort to get some Fudd money.


Don’t forget to vote in Mississippi’s primary election on Tuesday.

What people think I mean when they say gun; what I actually mean: NRA Tactics Newsletters.


A federal judge in the Northern District of Illinois ruled in favor of Cook County’s gun ban last week, while the challenge to the statewide ban in the Southern District continues. In the ruling Friday in the case Viramontes v. Cook County, US District Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer issued a summary judgment against the plaintiffs and in favor of the county, saying that the plaintiffs’ case “falls far short of meaningfully distinguishing AR-15s from M16s… This is truly a distinction without a difference.” No. Anyone, ANYONE who cannot understand the difference between an AR-15 and an M16 has no business being in any sort of thought-requiring position, let alone a federal judge. Further, a ban on M16s is facially unconstitutional.

The New Mexico jury for the trial of “Rust” armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed has found her guilty of involuntary manslaughter and not guilty of tampering with evidence, in the killing of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounding of a director when actor Alec Baldwin pointed a loaded revolver at them and fired it while rehearsing on the set. The jury deemed her to have been reckless in her duties. She allegedly loaded a functional .45 revolver with dummy rounds and at least one live round, which Baldwin used to shoot and kill Hutchins. Gutierrez-Reed faces a sentence of up to 18 months in prison, along with a $5,000 fine. An appeal is expected.

During the trial, Frank Louis Blair Koucky III, a firearms “expert” appearing for Reed’s defense, pointed a revolver toward the judge, and a law enforcement deputy intervened to lower the weapon. Too bad the deputy wasn’t on the movie set. Baldwin is awaiting his own manslaughter trial for the killing.


Nebraska Attorney General: “Municipalities lack authority to regulate the possession of firearms and certain weapons in quintessential public spaces, such as parks, trails, and sidewalks.”

The South Carolina General Assembly passed Constitutional Carry and the bill is now headed to Governor McMaster for his signature, which may happen before you read this. South Carolina will be the 29th state to “allow” constitutional/permitless carry. Louisiana’s similar bill was just signed into law by the governor.


The ACLDN and Rangemaster March newsletters are out.


  • Poop Francis – who has apparently never believed in armed defense of anyone but himself – said Sunday that military disarmament is not optional but constitutes a “moral obligation” for all nations.

Well you first, buddy. Have your feather-plume-wearing, machine-gun-toting personal Swiss Guard army lay down their weapons and disband.


The Only Ones

Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Special Agent Larry Edward Brown, Jr., 42, of Peoria, was indicted in Tucson, Arizona, last week by a federal grand jury on one count of Involuntary Manslaughter of an Officer of the United States after he allegedly fatally shot another agent last August at a federal training facility when recklessly handling his pistol. We first published a vague report of this incident at the time.

Sometimes you get what you ask for, like in an election.


Police won't protect you if you're murdered; they'll investigate after the murder, employing various tactics.

Not a DGU

  • New York Gov. Hochul has called in the National Guard and state police to help curb crime in NYC subways. You know, those “sensitive” gun-free zones where you can’t defend yourself.

Tactics & Stuff

Contrary to initial reports, the response was a Chinese fire drill with terrible tactics, crossfire, “security” all in each others’ and the cops’ way and repeatedly pointing guns at each other, poor cornering, nervous fiddling with a gun, one cop hiding in a doorway unsure what to do, lots of doing nothing, and officers approaching a downed suspect who said she had a bomb. The uniformed cop at the beginning of the Security Camera 2 footage had his nose in his phone and wasn’t watching the people. Had he simply been watchful, things might have been much better.
