One of the biggest hits of 2014 in the gun world has undoubtedly been GLOCK’s Model 42. It’s not much of a surprise

Every so often, I am able to take the time to tell our readers about a worthwhile charity or organization we can all get behind with our support. This Memorial Day is no different. Although the Veterans Administration is embroiled in scandal right now, let’s not forget about the good things it does. While we may all be disappointed with the V.A.’s recent actions, let’s remember it is not about the organization. Rather, it’s what the people, and this post, is about—the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) and the children of fallen heroes.
Memorial Day – a day set aside to commemorate the brave hearts that laid down their lives for our nation. A day to remember that freedom isn’t really free and the rights we enjoy were paid—and continue to be paid for—with American blood. It is a day to remember those who hover as a cloud of witnesses above.
Rock Island Auction Company’s May 2nd, 3rd & 4th, 2014 Premiere Firearms Auction is this weekend and it is not shy about stating that this auction has the finest selection in its entire 20 year history. After looking at its catalog, that claim appears to be spot on.
We have all felt the pinch of the ammo crunch and there has not been any shortage of stories about the government gobbling up supply. Suddenly it seems the government has too much ammo! In fact, the Pentagon estimates it has about $1.2 billion worth of ammo that it has slated for destruction.
When deciding which Governors are pro Second Amendment Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal gets a solid check mark beside his name. On Wednesday, Gov. Deal signed a wide-ranging gun bill into law that left critics howling in protest and the rest of us applauding.
President Obama wants to protect you from gun violence.
Just reading that, you know this cannot be good. In his latest budget request, Obama requested $1.1 billion for gun control and “to protect Americans from gun violence.” But the assault on our Second Amendment rights will not stop there. Adding fuel to the gun control fire, the Department of Justice (DOJ) asked for an additional 382.1 million for gun control.
It took until July of 2013, but my home state of Illinois became the last state in the Union to enact a concealed carry law. Illinois was last for a reason, and both sides offered plenty of rhetoric. The Antis claimed the law would paramount to the Wild West; the streets would lawless and gun fights rampant. A friendly punch to the snot locker would instead lead to murder conviction because everyone would be packing heat.
Stop me if you have heard this one before, “A leading Democrat makes a career from crusading against guns and the Second Amendment only to be accused of moral turpitude and gun crimes.” They preach against you and me owning guns, claim they have the moral high ground to legislate and restrict our Second Amendment rights and all the while are wearing hypocrisy on their sleeves. California State Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) was recently arrested for gun running among a laundry list of other major crimes.
We get plenty of bad news when it comes to legal battles and regulations regarding our Second Amendment rights. Fortunately, there are several organizations fighting to retain our rights and reverse the efforts of over-zealous anti-gun lawmakers. This is the first installment and recaps pro Second Amendment wins and challenges from the previous month.
A few months ago, I was chatting with my boss when, out of the blue, he asked if I ever had considered getting my amateur radio (ham) operator’s license. It never really had crossed my mind. My parents were into CB (Citizen’s Band radio) when I was a kid, and I certainly had spent time on radios in the Navy, but it really did not seem like a hobby I needed. The truth be told, I am busy enough without another hobby.
