What Makes The Glock 30SF Special (Or Why You Might Hate It)

Glock clearly makes some of the most popular handguns on the planet, thanks to the popular Glock 19 and Glock 17 firearms. But what about other models that fire bigger rounds than 9mm? Here comes the Glock 30SF: .45 is a fun caliber. It’s big, bulky, and above all an absolute classic. That’s not even mentioning that sweet stopping power. Now, I’m not the type to carry .45 but that doesn’t mean I don’t have an appreciation for this old-timer caliber. It seems like Glock does too. They have a decent lineup of pistols chambered in 45 ACP.
 

UT: Theft of firearms out of vehicles is on the rise, study shows

A new study shows the theft of firearms from vehicles is on the rise.

The study comes from a non-profit organization called Everytown for Gun Safety. The organization says the number of reported cases is up from a few years ago. From 2019 to 2020, the study found that 180 cities around the country saw an increase in gun thefts from vehicles. That now makes up for the largest source of stolen firearms, according to the study.

And this is of great concern to Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill.

I would like to share why we’re supporting Ed Humphreys for the governor of Idaho. We escaped a liberal state and relocated to live as free people as our United States Constitution guarantees. Keep Idaho free and cut out the corruption that has leaked in.

He is not a paid politician, accepts no funding from special interests groups. He is for the people and will fight federal overreach into our constitutional freedoms and begin the process of divorcing Idaho from federal grant money.
 

NC: Judge Orders North Carolina Sheriff to Stop Delaying CCW Permits

A North Carolina sheriff has been ordered by the court to stop delaying the issuance of North Carolina Concealed Handgun Permits. Using the excuse that the department was backed up due to covid and the increase in new gun owners, delayed concealed carry permits for up to a year. To take that in perspective, state law says that sheriffs have up to 45 days to either approve or deny applications.
 

CA: California's under-21 gun sales ban is unconstitutional, court says

A U.S. appeals court ruled Wednesday that California's ban on the sale of semiautomatic weapons to adults under 21 is unconstitutional.

In a 2-1 ruling, a panel of the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Wednesday the law violates the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms and a San Diego judge should have blocked what it called "an almost total ban on semiautomatic centerfire rifles" for young adults. "America would not exist without the heroism of the young adults who fought and died in our revolutionary army," Judge Ryan Nelson wrote. "Today we reaffirm that our Constitution still protects the right that enabled their sacrifice: the right of young adults to keep and bear arms."
 

AZ: Further details emerge following teenager's shooting in Pinal County

The 17-year-old underwent surgery following transportation to an unidentified hospital, and before Wednesday, the PCSO did not release further information beyond an expectation that the teenager would survive his injuries.

In an email on Wednesday, PCSO Public Information Officer Lauren Reimer told NewsBreak that detectives have determined a 10-year-old child shot the 17-year-old with a high-velocity pellet gun. Reimer said that detectives believe the 10-year-old was acting in self-defense, and whether the teenager is criminally-charged remains an open question, as the investigation is ongoing.
 

Media Rip Gun Owner Privacy for ‘Hampering Gun Violence Studies’

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that lawsuits filed by the National Rifle Association, Second Amendment Foundation and “other gun rights groups” challenging California’s sharing of admittedly “detailed information on gun owners” with researchers is hampering so-called “gun violence studies.”

Or is it the L.A. Times?

The story, authored by Will Van Sant, is actually a piece published simultaneously by The Trace—the non-profit journal “devoted to gun-related news in the United States” that was “established in 2015 with seed money from the largest gun control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety.”
 

Gun Control Threatens Court Packing Again

The unauthorized leak of a draft abortion opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court has Democrats up in arms (again) about packing the U.S. Supreme Court. This isn’t a new argument and one gun control advocates publicly pitched before.

Senators are openly calling for court-packing again and that’s before the Supreme Court has rendered a final opinion on New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen or finalized the opinion of the leaked abortion draft decision. Even before the nine justices heard arguments on the New York case challenging the state’s arbitrary and restrictive “may issue” concealed carry permit criteria, there were calls for court-packing.

Money lets you buy what you want. Now that many of our Deep Blue cities have defunded the police and crime has exploded, people with money are buying off-duty police officers to stop crime in their neighborhoods. Though recently covered in the news, the use of private security is an expansion of a long-term trend. What should make news are the billionaires trying to disarm the rest of us.

Rich people live in gated communities and walled compounds. They have their own security force. Some wealthy families have their own private security detail that lives with the owners inside their walled compound. It may have fancy flower beds on the outside, but it remains a castle in disguise.

California’s 2019 law prohibiting people under 21 from buying semiautomatic rifles violates the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Wednesday.

“America would not exist without the heroism of the young adults who fought and died in our revolutionary army. Today we reaffirm that our Constitution still protects the right that enabled their sacrifice: the right of young adults to keep and bear arms,” wrote Judge Ryan Nelson, who was named to the court by President Donald J. Trump.

The Louisiana House passed legislation to ban government agencies from contracting with companies that limit business with firearm manufacturers, despite a veto by Gov. John Bel Edwards of a similar bill last session.

The lower chamber voted 71-26 on Tuesday to approve House Bill 978, sponsored by Rep. Blake Miguez, R-Erath, to prohibit government business with large companies that have policies that target the firearm industry. The bill requires contracting companies to provide written verification they do not have policies that discriminate against a firearm entity or trade association and will not discriminate against the same.

Springfield Armory has announced the newest addition to its line of popular Emissary 1911s—the Emissary 4.25-inch in 9mm. Bridging the gap between duty and custom handguns, the Emissary delivers a bold and capable 1911 pistol with defense-minded features intended for serious use as well as convenient carry.

The new 4.25-inch Emissary blends form and function seamlessly in a firearm built for defense and loaded with custom-grade features. It’s constructed with a forged stainless steel frame and forged carbon steel slide, with a beautiful two-tone finish. The blued carbon steel slide pairs with a stainless steel frame featuring a distinctive squared trigger guard with additional room for ease of operation with a gloved hand.
 

The New York Times Uses a CDC Report on Homicides As an Excuse To Attack Private Gun Ownership

In 2017, according to the Small Arms Survey, American civilians owned more than 393 million firearms. Purchases in 2018 and 2019 added an estimated 27 million guns to that stock of weapons. If sales in 2020 had been similar to sales in the two previous years, they would have added another 13 million or so. Assuming Wintemute's estimate is in the right ballpark, the "gun-buying spree" that worries the Times amounted to a further increase of about 3.5 percent. Although Times reporters Roni Caryn Rabin and Tim Arango seem to think that's a plausible explanation for a 33 percent increase in the gun homicide rate, it's not clear why.

It is demonstrably not true that more guns in circulation automatically results in more homicides.

A critical responsibility of our nation’s Commander in Chief is to uphold the constitutional rights of all citizens, regardless of age, race, socioeconomic status or background. This includes protecting our natural born right to self-defense guaranteed under the Second Amendment. Unfortunately for Americans today, President Biden is proposing more failed policies at the expense of Americans’ right to protect themselves and their families.

The term "I am the NRA" speaks truth and strength to those special NRA members that choose to be strong advocates in their communities. Michael Omatsu was a passionate NRA-ILA FrontLines Activist Leader (FAL) who went above and beyond the call to support and advance freedom in Kansas.

Michael Omatsu, of Olathe, Kansas, passed away late last year. Prior to his passing, Michael was a dedicated FAL, and was greatly appreciated; not only by NRA-ILA, but by all of those that were fortunate enough to work with him.

“Mooney’s victory is an important reminder that Republican Primary voters want to support pro-Trump, pro-Second Amendment conservatives, and they will not be fooled by Swamp-funded RINOs who voted for the January 6th Commission like Rodney Davis,” Miller said in a news release released late Tuesday.

RINO, or Republican in name only, is part of Miller’s campaign rhetoric as she fights for votes against the more experienced, and more moderate Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.). It’s the only remaining primary between Republican incumbents.

These deadly statistics prove an uptick in serious crime, committed by dangerous individuals and usually committed with illegal or stolen weapons. Unfortunately, President Joe Biden isn’t going after them. He’s turned his attention yet again to law-abiding citizens who wish to exercise their Second Amendment rights. Biden wants the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to ban privately made firearms, so-called “ghost guns.” These are predominantly a hobbyist option and require extensive time, special tooling, and dedication to craftsmanship to make them operate correctly — far more effort than criminals are willing to invest.
 

Tueller Drill: What Is It?

The Tueller Drill is one of those shooting drills that you probably thought about a million times, but you never really knew what it was called. It’s pretty common to hear people inside the self-defense training community say something like, “Most defensive encounters happen within 21 feet, so practice shooting close.” In a nutshell, that’s the Tueller Drill.

Not all deadly encounters involve a bad guy with a gun. It could be a hammer, knife, tire iron, or axe. Frankly, it could be anything that someone picks to use as a weapon to harm you. The Tueller Drill was designed to illustrate just how fast a situation can turn deadly even if there isn’t a gun involved.
 

NRA Fratricidal Fire Hits Second Amendment Hard

That brings us to this week — Allen West is back with a bid to replace LaPierre at the NRA’s annual meeting and convention later this month. He has been nominated by a few current and former NRA board members.

Personally, I think LaPierre should have retired in humility back in 2018. Whether West can rally enough board support to replace LaPierre is doubtful, especially given West’s charge three years ago: “There is a cabal of cronyism operating within the NRA and that exists within the Board of Directors.”

But, on behalf of grassroots 2A advocates nationwide, what I am certain of is this: The NRA’s fratricidal fire hits the Second Amendment hard.

As Governor Phil Murphy continues to threaten New Jersey residents with further gun control and second amendment violations, Senator Ed Durr introduced a bundle of five gun rights bills this week, the first installment of his 15-bill package to advance safe, responsible firearm ownership for law abiding citizens.

“With some of the most rigid gun laws in the nation, New Jersey aggressively preventing innocent residents from protecting themselves, but fails miserably when it comes to controlling illegal arms and locking up predators who commit crimes with firearms,” said Durr (R-3).
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of the people to keep and bear arms has been recognized by the General Government; but the best security of that right after all is, the military spirit, that taste for martial exercises, which has always distinguished the free citizens of these States....Such men form the best barrier to the liberties of America — Gazette of the United States, October 14, 1789.
