... "It would be instructive to look at the partners in this venture, and to assess the likelihood it will attain the stated goals, or perhaps some unstated ones, and if it does, what that will mean in terms of measurable reductions in violent crime. That they’re patterning themselves on the 'successful model…in…New Jersey' ought to raise a red flag or two right off the bat." ...

"Few things in American public life are as predictable as gun control advocates taking to the airwaves and editorial pages in the immediate aftermath of a shooting spree to call for more stringent gun control measures. The summer of 2012 was a banner season for anti-gun rhetoric since it featured not one but two horrific incidents: the July 20th massacre of patrons at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, and the August 5th massacre of worshippers at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin." ...

"mediamatters.org is no friend to gun rights. Neither is Ted Nugent. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: the Motor City Madman and NRA Board Member does more harm to the RKBA cause than good. His endless, infantile desire to earn populist approval by shocking media gatekeepers with “outspoken” conservative views leads him to make comments so offensive they’re bizarre. And vice versa. And now, on October 10, the Discovery Channel will give Uncle Ted his own prime-time freak show . . ." ...

your article on training not to shoot. I understand where you are coming from on this one because the recent scenario seems like a no win scenario when you look at it in terms of firearms training. I don’t think this is a good solution to the problem however. If the Kobayashi Maru taught us anything it is that when a scenario looks to be no win you need to consider a reformulation of the problem. A solution in this sad scenario lies not with firearms training, but the distinction between 'firearms training' and 'self defense training.' What failed in this case was not the firearms training, but the lack of an overall self/family defense strategy the father should have instilled in himself and those he was responsible for . . ." ...

"Most people looking to buy their first gun tend to have the same question: What’s the best gun for home defense? I know I have a tendency for long winded introductions, so I’m going to skip right to the point: Let’s answer that question, shall we?"

"Note: The original opening I had in mind was 6 paragraphs. You’re welcome."

"So what does 'home defense' entail? Close quarters combat in relatively tight spaces. There are obstacles and hallways. Defensive situations are fast, and violent. As such, maneuverability is of utmost importance."

"So what are the options? You have the choice of a rifle, a shotgun and a handgun." ...

I lamented the 'godawful' M&P trigger in my M&P 45C review, and every stock one I’ve picked up since has given me fits. The Shield was the first M&P that didn’t seem to have a trigger filled with sand. I actually kind of liked it. Our man Ralph agreed, though he felt it was a bit too stiff by a pound and a half. The guys and gals over at Apex seemed to think the same. And when it comes to M&P trigger improvements, there’s one name that gets thrown around the most, Apex Tactical." ...
