Most of You Hate Gun Control, and the Media Didn’t Tell You

Hillary Clinton says guns should be outlawed. We disagree. When I say “we”, I mean all of us. Gallop took a poll this month. They asked if we should ban handguns. We said no, and we said it in a big way.

The poll also asked about modern rifles. Again, the number of people asking for such a ban is the lowest, and the number against such a ban is the highest, since the poll has been run.

That is another record setting shift in public opinion. We set a record but didn’t hear about it. Ask yourself how the media would behave if the poll results were reversed. Of course they would cover the story.. if gun control were popular.
 

Moms Demand Action Founder Has a Warped Definition of ‘Freedom”

Shannon Watts, Founder of Moms Demand Action and inspiration for the #ImBlockedByShannonWatts club, is burning up her keyboard for Hillary Clinton and continuing to respond to the NRA, despite the fact she herself has admitted they’ve blocked her. (which is against Twitter’s community standards)

Watts is lighting up Twitter with her praise for how a Hillary presidency will push gun control and take down the NRA:
 

Behind the Bullet: 10mm Auto

In spite of being forced to take a serious back seat to the .40 Smith & Wesson (which many 10mm devotees refer as the .40 Short & Weak), and the fact that very few modern pistols are being chambered for the 10mm Auto, it has made a bit of a comeback as a hunting round. Guys like Ted Nugent and Razor Dobbs have championed the 10, taking game up to the size of elk with it, and singing the praises of the cartridge in the hunting fields. It approaches the power of the .41 Rem. Mag., but in an autoloader. Federal, Remington, Winchester, Hornady and other boutique companies make 10mm Auto ammunition, loaded with good bullets that are suitable for both hunting and for self-defense as well.
 

Johns Hopkins Report on Campus Carry Is Seriously Flawed

An October 15 report by Daniel W. Webster, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, and nine coauthors has resulted in several bold headlines but little critical analysis.

Articles with titles such as “Report: Allowing Guns On Campus Results In More, Not Less, Gun Violence” and “Guns on campus unlikely to increase safety, study finds” belie both the fact that the report is theoretical and doesn’t cite any resulting gun violence on college campuses and the fact that the report, which involved no data analysis and was neither published nor peer-reviewed, is not actually a “study” in the academic sense of the word.

GA: Forget Baked Goods, This Christian School Knows How to Raise Funds!

Bake sales, car washes, magazine sales and wrapping paper are the norm, but how’s this for a school fundraiser? Central Fellowship Christian Academy in Macon, GA is raffling off 30 guns in 30 days in November.

“You’d have to wash a lot of cars or bake a lot of cookies to sell a lot of doughnuts to make that kind of money,” Athletic Director Josh McClendon said.

McClendon says the raffle, which raised over $20,000 for the athletic department last year, is successful because people in the school’s district and surrounding area respect guns and the Second Amendment.
 

DoubleTap Ammunition's Ted Nugent Line

This first time I saw Ted Nugent, I didn’t know what to think. I’d gone to a concert sometime in high school and the opening act was some crazy guitar player running around shooting flaming arrows and riding on a life-size bucking bison in between earsplitting guitar solos. I do know that I was, at the least, a bit intrigued. A few minutes into the show, he tore into an R-rated song that was, shall we say, “critical” of gun control advocates. I was sold. Twenty years later, I met him backstage at the NRA Annual Meetings, where he was about to greet the crowd with a Gibson guitar in one hand and an AR in the other; his energy and enthusiasm was just as forceful on that Sunday afternoon as it had been for decades.
 

.380 Auto + The Right Bullet = Conceal Carry Confidence

The debate over which calibers are suitable for personal protection will go on for eternity. Certainly, no one questions the ability of a .45 ACP in the hands of a trained shooter, and most would agree that a 9mm is big enough, too. However, when someone says “I’m thinking about buying a .380,” the gloves come off and everyone has an opinion.

Because opinions are like “you know what,” we decided to ask someone who should know, Federal Premium Product Director Mike Holm.
 

Clinton's greatest enemy

Clinton gave a speech where she called the members of the National Rifle Association, her greatest enemy and you have NO individual right to own a gun, even to defend yourself in your own home--then the Second Amendment means nothing at all to her.

She said the 1996 Australian Gun-Ban is worth looking at..The Australian government forcefully confiscated nearly 650,000 firearms of all kinds and destroyed them. The government threatened harsh prison sentences for those not turning in their guns, and it specifically stated that owning a gun for self-defence was not a valid reason to keep it. From handguns, pump-action shotguns to semi-automatic .22 rim fire rifles, were banned,confiscated from lawful people like you, and destroyed.

Gun ownership is not a human right

It’s a creative new argument, and also one that’s very wrong. I can see why people are doing it: there’s a growing sensitivity to human rights, and suggesting that something is an inalienable entitlement makes it seem ironclad. It’s an example of how the right attempts to use the language and tools of the left against it, often highly effectively. After all, the logic goes, if marrying anyone you want is a human right and we frown upon any attempts to abridge or interfere with that right, then surely if gun ownership is declared a human right, then the left will be forced to defend that “right”.

Senate candidate from the Empire State earns accolades for openly opposing the gun-hating, 17-year- incumbent liberal Democrat, Sen. Charles “Chuckie” E. Schumer.

“Schumer is basically a premier enemy of the people and probably the whole congress,” said Wendy Long, who is the U.S. Senate nominee for the Republican, Conservative and Reform Parties. “He has consistently been rated ‘F’ by the NRA, his answer to everything is gun control, and he never wastes the chance to undermine Americans’ rights under the Second Amendment.”

It's autumn and more than leaves will be falling soon in a cornfield near Bridgeville. Once again it's time for the annual World Championship Punkin Chunkin, Friday, November 4, Saturday, Nov. 5 and Sunday, Nov. 6., at the Wheatley Farm after a two-year hiatus.

Punkin Chunkin started in 1986 in Lewes when a few close friends gathered in a field to chunk leftover Halloween pumpkins.
 

WA: VOTE NO on Ballot Initiative 1491 to Selectively Target Gun Owners

On the 2016 General Election ballot, Washingtonians will find Ballot Initiative 1491, an initiative purported to prevent violent acts by creating so-called “Extreme Risk Protection Orders” (ERPO). This legislation was introduced in the Washington Legislature during the 2015 Legislative Session as House Bill 1857. HB 1857 died in committee without ever seeing a floor vote. Your NRA-ILA has seen similar legislation pop up in multiple states in recent years and the proponents are always the same, anti-gun legislators and gun control groups who are intent on targeting gun owners instead of preventing crime.
 

GQ: Banning ‘Assault Weapons’ Would Have Nearly Zero Effect on Crime

On October 28, GQ magazine published an article which highlighted the fact that banning “assault weapons” would have nearly zero effect on crime.
GQ’s exact words: “Banning assault weapons would do almost nothing.”

According to GQ, the push to ban “assault weapons” is misplaced and misses the fact that very few homicides are committed with any type of rifle, much less an “assault” rifle (i.e., “assault weapon”).
 

MN: DFLers embrace wrong answers on guns

If House District 14A candidate Aric Putnam supports the Second Amendment and genuinely cares about keeping all communities safe, he will disconnect himself from the DFL Party.

Why? Because its ideology and failed policies are more important to it than actually ending the extreme violence gripping cities where Democrats hold a majority of elected offices, including Minneapolis.

Instead of examining violent behavior, DFLers blame guns and seek to add more laws that cannot or will not be enforced.

But despite being a favorite boogeyman of California liberals, the NRA is actually a relatively minor political player in the Golden State, where the voice of gun rights has traditionally been represented by state groups like Gun Owners of California. The NRA has contributed just $95,000 to the campaign against Proposition 63, a mere fraction of the nearly $5 million it has poured into neighboring Nevada to fight a background check proposal.

William L. Shinkle is accused of entering a Rigby home Thursday morning. He was confronted by the homeowner and the homeowner's son. Shinkle shot at them. The son then grabbed a shotgun and fired back, hitting Shinkle in the stomach.

Bobby Packard and his son, Brian, are doing fine Friday. They are grateful to be alive after having so many shots fired at them inside their own house.

"He really stepped up and saved us. You know, I couldn't be prouder of him," said Bobby. "I really thought me and my dad were gonna die," said Brian.

The homeowner went outside to confront the man, who then charged at him. That prompted the resident to go back inside, retrieve a firearm and call 911. The suspect, armed with a handgun and a knife, then attempted to break into the home.

The homeowner reacted to that by firing two rounds through the door. At least one bullet struck the would-be intruder. The suspect returned fire through the door but the resident was not hit.
 

Clinton threatens the 2nd Amendment - and the 1st

Donald Trump is a clear menace to our democratic form of government, the rule of law and my James Madison bobblehead. The teenage Ted Cruz could recite the entire Constitution from memory. Trump wouldn't know it from Two Corinthians.

But it's not exactly safe to entrust your copy of the Constitution to Hillary Clinton, either. You might get it back with some parts missing or mutilated -- like the First Amendment and the Second.

When it comes to gun rights, Clinton has taken a position appreciably to the left of Barack Obama's. From his first presidential campaign, he has assured gun owners he respects their cherished prerogatives and would never take away their weapons.

Advocates for gun safety want to give families a new tool to deal with armed relatives who are mentally ill, violent or acting erratically.

Initiative 1491 would let superior court judges issue “extreme risk orders” to temporarily take away firearms from those whose behavior indicates they may harm themselves or others.

Currently a protection order — often part of a divorce proceeding or after domestic violence is alleged — is required before a court may take away someone’s weapons.

We Finally Get a Look at Freddie Gray’s Knife

We post about this not to re-hash the Freddie Gray case, per se, but because the arrest was illustrative of the problems that can occur without knife law preemption. Baltimore not only outlaws knives that the state of Maryland does not, but its restriction is oddly worded in a way that some might argue makes an assisted-opening knife into an illegal switchblade. We would argue it plainly does not.

In any case, now that we have the knife photo, a bit of online research shows the knife to, indeed, be an assisted-opening knife as originally described and written up by the arresting officer. It is clearly not a knife “… commonly known as a switchblade knife.” However, the charging document described it as an illegal switchblade.
