Bloomberg—Mayors Against Illegal Guns

Blame the Criminals, Not Law Abiding Gun Owners

Every time the mainstream media covers an unlawful shooting, why is it that the lawful gun owners get the blame? Of course, the mainstream media is not the only one to blame.

NRA Sues New York Governor Cuomo & New York

Love it or hate it—The Shooter’s Log has certainly received comments on both sides—the NRA is fighting hard for the Second Amendment and our rights.

Come and Take It!, Molon Labe!, From My Cold Dead Hands! We have all heard the phrases and likely repeated many of them at one time or another, in or out of context to the Second Amendment and our rights.

Quickly, it became apparent just how easy it is (or was) to get yourself put on a watchlist.

ALERT! FREE “I Stand with the NRA Foundation Sticker” for YETI Coolers

Last week, The Shooter’s Log, covered the reaction from firearm owners and supporters of the Second Amendment to YETI’s decision to no longer support the NRA. Disgruntled patrons expressed their ire in a number of ways including blowing up YETI products with Tannerite, burning them, placing toilet seats and on them (and doing what naturally comes next), and destroying and defiling them in several other creative ways. However, Marion Hammer, USF Executive Director and NRA Past President, wants you to keep and express your opinion in a completely different way. After all, you have already spent the money and YETI and has already reaped the profits.

Top Cops Opposing Concealed Carry — Did yours make the list?

Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, Constable, or Commissioner — It really does not matter what you call them, they are still the top cop within the department and answerable to the citizenry.
