... "Riehl, seen talking to Cefalu through his Jeep window and reportedly telling him he couldn’t leave because he had to sign papers, had been criticized on the CUATF forum, and Gun Rights Examiner is attempting to track down audit reports to determine what an independent assessment reveals about the allegations there. But the bottom line is, an employee with over 25 years of service who has been a leading spokesman for whistleblowers was unceremoniously canned in a public parking lot by senior division management." ...

"In the summer of 2008 ... I watched from a computer screen and AFN Television the nation going crazy over a young senator whose bid for president was sweeping not only our nation but the world. But not everyone rallied to this Chicagoan’s side. Those of us that cling to our guns decided one of the first actions he would do when elected would be to institute another firearms ban, place a luxury tax on the ammunition and a host of other things to make it harder for legal citizens of this great nation to obtain, possess and use these mechanical devices that we hold so dear."

"Every year Gallup surveys the American public for their opinion on things like gun issues."

"In 2011 Americans voiced an all-time high approval rating in support of the Second Amendment. The amount of Americans that favor a ban on handguns sits at a paltry 26 percent. A majority of Americans are also against banning so called 'assault weapons,' a bogeyman frequently trotted out by anti-gunners ..."

"The strong majority (60 percent) do not support new gun laws; however, they do support active enforcement of the laws we already have on the books. The amount of women that favor stricter restrictions on guns or firearm purchases now rests at exactly 50 percent or less, depending on which specific question is asked." ...

"With the first frost, the leaves turn and begin to fall, the air is filled with the rich aroma of the crop drying down in the fields, and the hunting season is upon us. This time of year, more than any other, gives us the opportunity to reflect on the right to keep and bear arms ... In order to understand the importance of this Constitutionally guaranteed individual right to keep and bear arms, we need to understand its origins. Some of the ways we exercise our 2nd amendment rights are target shooting, self defense, gun collecting, and hunting."

"... it is important to remember that the purpose of the 2nd amendment, as intended by the Framers of the Constitution, is to provide a deterrent to injustice and tyranny. ..." ...

"Most women at my local gun store are reverse size queens; they operate under the assumption that smaller guns are easier to shoot. I’ve encountered the same anti-big gun bias at the gun range. Many a new shooter (both male and female) have waved off the opportunity to fire my Smith & Wesson 686, their faces displaying an odd combination of humility and condemnation (i.e., I am not worthy nor as crazy as you). And yet larger, heavier guns are, in the main, more comfortable to shoot than lighter pieces. So it’s time to put down the 'toys' and stick up for the heavyweights . . ." ...

Gun Review: SIG SAUER 716 Patrol Rifle

"There’s a debate raging in the AR15 community. The point of contention: operating systems. Traditionalists favor direct impingement. Designed by Eugene Stoner, DI harnesses the power of the gasses trapped in the barrel to cycle the rifle’s action. It’s a remarkably simple system with one critical flaw: the gasses blow directly into the rifle’s upper receiver and bolt carrier. Over time, this leads to a dirty rifle. In a gas piston system the propellant gases push a solid rod that pushes the carrier to the rear. That makes for a cleaner running gun. While the controversy continues, SIG SAUER has covered its bets with their piston-driven 516 and, now, the 716 . . ." ...

"Back when I was a graduate student, I lived in a sketchy part of downtown Atlanta. The neighborhood was bad enough by day, but the character changed much more after the sun went down. I often left school in a hurry to make it home before the sun went down, only so I could throw on running shoes and do a couple of laps around the block."

VPC finds high rate of 'gun deaths' in jurisdictions with very strict gun laws

"The Violence Policy Center (VPC) is perhaps the only 'gun control' group still willing to openly advocate an outright ban on handguns, and is also the group that openly recommends exploiting public confusion about the differences between machine guns and so-called 'assault weapons.' When the VPC disagrees with the Brady Campaign, the complaint is always that the Brady Campaign's forcible citizen disarmament agenda does not go far enough. Actually, the more one reads the VPC's positions, the more difficult it becomes to find any gun that would meet the group's approval for private ownership." ...

"A while ago, Mythbusters discovered that shooting a bullet into solid ice can create spinning bullets. But what happens if you leave your gun or your ammo out in the middle of a blizzard before pulling the trigger? Will a frozen gun perform the way it’s supposed to? Will it even shoot?"

"Dark Arts set out to answer those questions. They doused dry ice in pure grain alcohol to bring the liquid down to a frigid -110° F. Just to put that into perspective, the lowest natural temperature ever recorded on Earth was -128.6 degrees Fahrenheit in Antarctica. So theoretically, you could actually have a firearm get this cold. " ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As I have stood in the crosshairs of those who target Second Amendment freedoms, I've realized that firearms are not the only issue. No, it's much, much bigger than that. I've come to understand that a cultural war is raging across our land, in which, with Orwellian fervor, certain acceptable thoughts and speech are mandated. — Charlton Heston
