For a city longing to be in the national spotlight for days on end, the past few weeks in Seattle is not likely what the left-leaning city government and mayor had in mind, but many believe was as predictable as November rain in this Northwest liberal enclave.

Embattled Mayor Jenny Durkan said Monday the “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest” zone—known by the acronym “CHOP”—will be taken back and police will be moving back into the abandoned East Precinct building “soon,” as reported by KING, without saying exactly when, leaving critics skeptical.

New York City shootings have surged to the point they are now 358 percent higher than they were at this time last year.

Over 70 people were injured in the shootings, with victims “[varying] in age from 16 to 47.”

Wherein a number of governors across the United States have been successfully sued recently by various parties for overstepping their gubernatorial and Constitutional powers during the coronavirus crisis, totalitarian NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo has found a simple solution to that annoying problem – merely don’t allow yourself to be served. On June 11, 2020, 2ANYS, a New York-based Second Amendment advocacy group, attempted to serve Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York State Police Superintendent Keith Corlett with notification that they are subjects of a federal lawsuit. NYS Capital Building security personnel refused to accept lawsuit papers on Cuomo’s behalf, or attempt to contact members of his staff who could properly accept the documents.
 

Why The 10mm is The Ultimate Handgun Cartridge for Hunting and Personal Defense (Plus 8 of Best Pistols You Can Buy)

If you want a pistol that can take down a mountain lion but is also easier to carry than a .357 hand cannon for self-defense, the 10mm is the perfect option. Now, this handgun will likely never be an everyday carry gun in an urban setting (it’s not exactly a dainty pistol). But when you’re headed into the backcountry (or live there), the 10mm is ideal for a variety of hunting pursuits and to defend yourself from both animal and human predators.

Despite pressing issues the state is facing surrounding the COVID-19 crisis, lawmakers are continuing the assault on our Second Amendment Freedoms, scheduling additional anti-gun bills for a hearing this week.

I recently received an invitation from my local public school district to attend a “safety forum.” It wasn’t going to cover the variety of health-and-safety issues relevant to kids today—opioid abuse, underage drinking, reckless driving, online bullying, physical violence and sexual assault or harassment. Instead, the entire safety forum would focus on one issue: guns.

Next Wednesday, sections of House Bill 1284 (2019) will go into effect. A five-year License to Carry a Handgun will now be free to obtain. In addition, applicants will have the option to register to vote while applying. ​Removing barriers for lawful carry in Indiana, including taxes and fees, is significant for many Hoosier gun owners that desire to carry for the defense of themselves and others.

Despite enacting a sweeping firearms ban last year, officials in New Zealand have successfully pushed a new set of regulations designed to inform gun owners of their precarious “privilege.” The latest Arms Legislation Bill passed through the New Zealand Parliament last week despite a modicum of resistance from members who thought it went too far and only scapegoats law-abiding gun owners in the country. With that, the measure is expected to achieve Royal Assent this week with some restrictions taking place immediately.

The Mount Pleasant ISD board has approved a plan to allow some employees to wear concealed handguns. A spokeswoman for the school said the board approved using the Guardian Plan, which is a state-approved plan which solely provides hand-picked armed employees the ability to defend themselves in the event of an active shooter. Some schools opt for the Marshal Plan, which gives employees armed law enforcement capabilities.
 

SCOTUS Delivered a Blow to the Gun Rights Community Last Week But There's Still Hope

The Supreme Court of the United States disappointed gun rights advocated last week when they turned down 10 Second Amendment-related cases. The last time the Court heard a gun-related case was in 2010 with the landmark McDonald v. Chicago decision. Although the decision felt like a blow, Second Amendment Foundation founder and Executive Vice President, Alan Gottlieb, said there is still hope.

“The Second Amendment Foundation still has one case pending Cert before the Supreme Court. I think there is a very good chance that they will hear this one," Gottlieb told Townhall.
 

XPB Hollow Point Ammo: XPB Hollow Point Bullets Explained

The XPB series is a line of ammo created and distributed by Barnes Bullets (well known among reloaders), an ammunition manufacturer based in Utah. These bullets are only used in large caliber handgun ammo, from the .357 up to .500 S&W and everything in between. The Barnes XPB features various nose shapes, but one thing is standard across every bullet type – the hollow point. This allows for maximum expansion on impact and phenomenal stopping power, no matter what you’re shooting. This particular style of ammunition is great for home defense, and is also fairly popular among handgun hunters who go after game like hogs and other handgun-friendly targets.

The Ruger Redhawk 44 Magnum Double Action Revolver

I seem to be on a bit of a 44 magnum kick lately, so I might as well talk about the Ruger Redhawk, that double action revolver which was introduced in 1979. By then, Sturm, Ruger, and Co. had been making double action centerfire revolvers for several years and had found success with its line of medium-frame guns based on the Security Six. The Redhawk, which was necessarily larger to handle the 44 Remington Magnum cartridge, was not just a scaled-up version of the Security Six; one reason being that Bill Ruger was a tinkerer who often changed his designs, even on the same model. And of course, he needed the new revolver to be very strong.

Tomorrow, June 24, the Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Committee will be hearing several budget trailer bills including Assembly Bill 88 relating to the public safety budget.

Additionally the bill was amended to expedite the effective date on precursor parts restrictions from 2024 to 2022. ​Email the Budget Committee to urge their opposition to the firearm policy changes contained in AB 88.

Why Build A Palma Rifle?

What compels a Service Rifle shooter like me to build and shoot a Palma gun? My current focus is to complete earning my Distinguished Rifleman badge, a goal that has eluded me for many years as career and family have taken priorities in my time. The price of it has been living at a performance plateau. I’m one of those shooters with moments of marksmanship brilliance juxtaposed with lingering inconsistencies. I finally started going to Camp Perry in 2016 and that exposure to some of the finest rifle shooters on this planet has begun to have a training effect. I’m cleaning rapid strings more regularly. My offhand technique is improving. And, I have moments of having everything come together at 600.

A bill authored by state Senator Anthony J. Portantino (D–Pasadena) SB 914 to address the gun purchase loophole related to the tragic synagogue shooting in Poway passed the State Senate yesterday along party lines.

Additionally, the bill defines what constitutes a valid and unexpired hunting license. The bill also updates several outdated code sections pertaining to fees associated with firearm purchaser information and includes code section cross references.

Sightmark announced the arrival of a new red dot that runs off a single CR2032 battery with an option for solar power should the battery die during use.

With solar cells sitting on top of the optic, the red dot is said to work in almost any environment on “everything from MSR platforms to tactical shotguns,” according to Sightmark.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so. Indeed I would go so far as to say that the underdog is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let's not have any native militia or police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order. — Adolf Hitler, April 11, 1942. (Source: "Hitler's Table-Talk at the Fuehrer's Headquarters 1941-1942", Dr. Henry Picker, ed. (Athenaeum Verlag, Bonn, 1951).)
