Review: Taurus PT1911 Commander Pistol
Submitted by: David Williamson

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
I used to be a 1911 guy, until I took an arrow to the knee. No, wait, I’m mixing my memes. I did used to be a die-hard 1911 fan, back in the days of diminished-capacity magazines when it made sense to carry eight rounds instead of 10, rather than 15, 17 or 20. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the 1911; in fact, there’s plenty right. It’s just that once standard-capacity magazines were back in circulation, it made more sense to carry a pistol with 15 or more rounds on tap than seven or eight. No, I don’t plan on missing much, but I also don’t know how badly my aim will degrade when the target is moving, not made out of paper and shooting back at me. I want every advantage I can get.
 

Caucus Chaos: Not the Best Display of Democrat Capability

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas probably put it best in a remark to Fox & Friends Tuesday morning about the chaos with the Iowa Caucus Monday evening: “Dems, right now, they can’t stand in a gymnasium and count who stands under which sign and they’re the ones that want to be in charge of our healthcare and everything else in our life.”

That would include convincing Americans they can set and guide national gun policy. There are a lot of gun owners in Iowa. Chances are, they were not impressed Monday night.

VA: Armed Crowd Expected for Lovettsville Council’s Second Amendment Vote
Submitted by: David Williamson

The Lovettsville Town Council on Thursday is scheduled to vote on a proclamation in support of the Second Amendment, but not before a crowd of armed supporters fills the town office. The proposed proclamation reads that the Town Council would support and defend the United States and Virginia constitutions through opposition to legislation that “infringes upon the right to keep and bear arms.” The council “strongly disagrees” with Gov. Ralph Northam and General Assembly members who they say threatening to withhold funds from localities that support residents’ rights to bear arms, and with any actions that would place the National Guard in opposition to law enforcement agencies and residents.

 

#1 Buck Rubber Ammo: #1 Buck Rubber Explained
Submitted by: David Williamson

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
Used by police, military and security personnel for years with great effect, rubber shot pellets offer a less lethal option without sacrificing a strong response. The 1.5-inch rubber bullets were designed as an indirect fire projectile, initially used in Europe to quell riots in the 1970s. Unfortunately, during The Troubles of the early 1970s in Northern Ireland, the bullets were used as direct fire munitions, causing many serious wounds and some deaths. This lead to the development of rubber bullets and buckshot to be used in direct fire mode, without the likelihood of causing injury as older rubber bullets. However, it must be noted that any firearm projectile has the potential to be lethal – even when loaded with rubber buckshot.

Using a shorthand term for the Constitutional Amendment at the heart of the struggle over guns, what was 2AWNY is now 2ANYS, as the group moves into Rockland County for a new chapter and pushes hard on its membership campaign. It is a big issue for the group because Albany is expected to pass more stringent gun control laws this year, as the federal court system pushes back against gun controls generally.

A bill to toughen Virginia’s law against letting minors access loaded guns failed in a Senate committee Monday morning as two Democrats joined Republicans in blocking it.
Under current law, it’s a misdemeanor offense to “recklessly” leave a loaded, unsecured gun accessible to a child under 14. As drafted, Senate Bill 581, introduced by Sen. Janet Howell, D-Fairfax, would have raised the age to 18 and made violations a felony offense.

As a prosecutor, Sen. Jason Pizzo watched helplessly as 20 mothers of murdered children would meet every Tuesday at Miami-Dade County’s Northside police station to discuss their kids’ cases and provide each other support. “If you asked by show of hands, how many arrests or closures have been made and clearance rate for those murders, maybe one or two hands go up,’’ he said, and many of them knew or suspected their child’s killers but prosecutors didn’t have the evidence to prove it.

Less than a year after the the passage of the “red flag” law — Colorado’s first gun reform since 2013 — Democrats say they’re going to introduce two more gun-related bills in the next few weeks. The first would require gun owners to securely store their firearms. The aim is to prevent children from accessing guns and either intentionally or accidentally causing harm, said Rep. Kyle Mullica, a Northglenn Democrat who’s sponsoring the bill. He added that the bill will mainly concern how guns are stored inside homes, as opposed to businesses.

It’s hard to beat a little double-action revolver chambered in .22 Long Rifle for all-around plinking, small game hunting and carrying in the woods, and the new 942 offering from Taurus fits the bill without breaking the bank. It’s available in matte black alloy steel or stainless steel, and with 2- or 3-inch barrels. The little wheel-guns sport soft rubber grips, 8-round cylinders and spurred hammers. The front sight is a serrated ramp; the rear sight is drift-adjustable for windage.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gun control? It's the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I'm a bad guy, I'm always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I'll pull the trigger. We'll see who wins. — Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, whose testimony convicted John Gotti.
