If Sen. Bernie Sanders wins the Washington State primary March 10, it will come as no surprise that it will have been made possible by the Seattle vote, if one reads a report appearing in National Review detailing what it suggests is the city’s “hostile takeover” by Democratic socialists.

The story, authored by Christopher F. Rufo, is headlined “Seattle is Socialism’s Laboratory, and It’s Not Pretty,” is a grim look at the Jet City’s continued slide leftward.

The most I could ask of gun-control activists is simply for them to tell the truth about who they are, what they believe and what they want. Not only does this make for an honest debate, it makes it easy to build a case for the Second Amendment.

Everyone knows that years are 365 days long, and we base our lives around that fact, even though it's not exactly true. In fact, it takes Earth 365 days and 6 hours to fully orbit the Sun, which leads to a calendar irregularity that must be rectified from time to time. Hence, we have an article now published on Feb. 29, a date we see only once every four years. Why not take the opportunity for a little look back to see where we were in the firearm industry the last time Feb. 29 rolled around? Here's a look back at the new guns and gear items we were discussing on Feb. 29, 2016.
 

Gun Control Activist David Hogg Targets Semi-Automatic Rifles

A survivor of the 2018 massacre on Valentine’s Day at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, and now enrolled at Harvard, student gun control activist David Hogg has become a sought-after speaker at colleges and universities, and the odds are off the chart that he’ll be given a prime-time slot at the Democratic National Convention in August. While I fully support his right to protest things he thinks are wrong, I respectfully disagree with his belief that school carnage will end if semi-automatic rifles are banned.

A former St. Louis police officer pleaded guilty Friday in the shooting death of a fellow cop during a game of Russian roulette, according to a report.

The pair had been playing a Russian Roulette-style game with a handgun in his apartment in Carondelet, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Behind a row of display cases housing dozens of handguns, Del. Wendell Walker, R-Lynchburg, haggled with a Campbell County resident over the price of a Smith & Wesson AR-15 style semi-automatic rifle. Having already hoisted the rifle off the pyramid-shaped gun rack, they volleyed a few prices back and forth and landed on an even $600. Putting down the full amount in cash, the resident flashed his driver’s license and other paperwork, slid the gun into a box and walked away.

A bill targeting a new Salt Lake County rule to require vendors at gun shows in county facilities to run background checks sailed through the Utah House of Representatives on Friday after no debate. The bill, HB271, seeks to declare with more clarity the state has total control over gun laws in Utah — and no city or county can work around that power.

Like many liberals, Lara Smith considers herself a feminist, favors abortion rights and believes the nation’s immigration policies under the Trump administration have just been “vile.” But when it comes to guns, Smith sounds more like a conservative: She opposes reviving the nation’s assault weapons ban, enacting red-flag laws or creating a registry of firearms. The 48-year-old California lawyer owns a cache of firearms, from pistols to rifles such as the AR-15.

The siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, is an important event in American history because it directly led to one of the biggest terrorist attacks on American soil – the bombing of the Oklahoma City Federal Building. It’s not necessary to defend this act of terrorism to understand why the entire freedom movement of the time was so incensed by it. Indeed, it stood as a symbol of federal overreach and the corruption of the Clinton Administration.

The Massachusetts fall deer season is history and it was a very good year for many. Not a record season, but oh so close. Bay State hunters scored heavily with the shot guns as one would think, but it was not the gun that did the damage to our whitetail herd, but the bow and arrow. Shotgun hunters took home 5,500 deer, while archers took home 7,000.

One of the most highly-debated topics in the United States today is the appropriate role of firearms in society. Presently, the University of Pennsylvania bans the use and possession of firearms on campus, thereby making Concealed Carry Weapon Permits moot. However, this hinders the rights of students who wish to protect themselves through self-defense.

Many lawmakers around the country welcomed in the new year by pursuing legislation that would severely curtail the right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. Meanwhile, law-abiding citizens began 2020 just as they ended 2019—by showing repeatedly just how instrumental that right is to the security of a free state.

I’ve heard several friends in the shooting and personal-protection communities refer to the latest wave of slim 9 mm pistols as “Twenty-First century J-frames.” Looking at the market niches that have been occupied by these little guns, it’s really hard to disagree. Ankle and pocket holsters were long the rightful home of the Smith & Wesson Airweight Chiefs Special, its offspring and clones, but now you’re as likely to find something like a Kahr PM9, Springfield Armory XDs or Smith & Wesson Shield pulling that duty as any wheelgun.

Gunsite Academy founder Col. Jeff Cooper would have turned 100 years old in May 2020, along with his wife, Janelle, who passed away last year at the age of 99. To honor and celebrate the memory of the couple, Gunsite will host a one-day match called the Jeff Cooper Memorial Shoot. The match will be held on May 24, 2020. In keeping with the event's title character, the shoot will be a retro-style match that incorporates several of Col. Cooper's old courses of fire. The match will not exceed 100 shooters, and the final 16 shooters will participate in a shoot-off in the famous "J Ladder" course of fire.
