Bring it! Bloomberg Attempts to Fight Fire with Fire

Planning to use the same grassroots tactics as the NRA by encouraging voters and funding political campaigns, New York’s former mayor, Michael Bloomberg recently rebranded his anti-gun group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, as Everytown for Gun Safety after bringing aboard paranoid Shannon Watt’s group, Mom’s Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

Concealed Carry and Practical Defense

Decide for yourself if you are content to learn from journalists or hobbyists who have been to a lot of schools or from a well-schooled expert of the trade. R. K. Campbell graduated at the top of his class with a degree in criminal justice and has studied the human situation for more than 40 years. He has published more than 2,500 articles, columns and reviews plus eight books on the subject of personal defense and concealed-carrying handguns. He is a former peace officer, serving as a patrol Sergeant and patrol Lieutenant, and  the National Institute of Justice published his abstracts.

NJ, VA, NY Voters Want National Gun Registry

We often run stories in The Shooter’s Log that point out what anti-gun politicians are doing in some states, and those politicians richly deserve the opprobrium Cheaper Than Dirt! commenters heap on them. But more worrisome is: What if anti-gun pols are merely doing what their constituencies want?

Getting the Lead Out — of the Entire U.S.?

Doe Run Company’s primary lead smelter based in Herculaneum, Missouri — the last such facility in the United States — is scheduled to close in December. The Herculaneum smelter is currently the only smelter in the United States which can produce lead bullion from raw lead ore that is mined nearby in Missouri’s extensive lead deposits, giving the smelter its “primary” designation, according to NRA-ILA. So, will consumers eventually feel this shutdown at the retail level — for example, reduced supplies of bullet components, higher prices, or more alternative bullet alloys?
