Proven Handgun Bullets For Whitetails

When it come to best, that terminology is subjective and open to endless debate on social media. Simply tagging something as “the best” opens up a can of worms with damn near everyone chiming in and disagreeing to disagree.

With over four decades of whitetail hunting in the North East under my belt and having had great success hunting with a handgun for whitetail deer there are a number of bullets (factory and hand loads) that I have tried and all have worked; but some have performed extremely well.
 

Knife-Wielding Clown Terrorizes Bowhunter

This “clown epidemic” just took a serious turn after a knife-wielding clown terrorized a bowhunter.

Draven Riffe posted a video to his Facebook recently, showing a knife-carrying clown walk right to his treestand while he was hunting one afternoon.

He shouts at the clown to make him aware he’s trespassing on private property, but the clown isn’t fazed. Instead, the clown reveals a large butcher knife, and that’s when Draven goes into a panic.

Some people are calling this video a hoax, and we’re with them. Although Draven says he was so shaken afterward, he waited nearly 2 hours in his treestand for law enforcement to come and escort him out of the woods.

A longtime Oak Park resident and college professor is hoping to start a conversation about gun control by seeking support to abolish the Second Amendment.

A non-binding referendum appearing on Oak Park Township ballots in November will ask voters if the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution should be repealed, with future gun licensing and regulation to be taken up by Congress.

The referendum question will read: "Shall the Constitution of the United States be amended as follows? The second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is repealed. The United States Congress shall regulate the licensing and use of arms."
 

Ruger Answers the Call for Freedom

When Bill Ruger, Sr. founded Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. in 1949, his newly minted company faced an uphill battle. Experts cast doubt that a new firearms company could stand up to the established name-brand gunmakers in an industry that was already viewed to be in a state of decline.

More than 60 years later, the Ruger name is respected around the world. In the spirit of Bill Ruger, Ruger CEO Mike Fifer and President/COO Chris Killoy have taken a stand to not only provide customers with a great firearm, but to ensure their customers have the right to use them for years to come.

The amount of guns on the street have increased these days – and it’s so much easier to get them.

St Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCullough tells KMOX’s Charlie Brennan that his problem is not with weapons.

“People certainly have the Second Amendment right to own weapons,” McCullough says. “It’s just that there has to be some sensible legislation out there and that’s pretty much what we are lacking in Missouri.”

On September 28, the Office of the Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Justice released a report titled, “Audit of the Handling of Firearms Purchase Denials Through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.” The report details the operations of the FBI’s NICS system with a focus on how the DOJ handles instances where a firearms transfer has been delayed or denied.

The National Rifle Association’s been the target of complaints following its tweets questioning the concept of gun control in the wake of Kim Kardashian’s gunpoint robbery in a Paris hotel room. NRA’s tweets about criminals not submitting to background checks in a nation like France, with some of the world’s most strict gun ownership laws, were called ‘classless’ by some publications, like ‘Mother Jones’. Other pro-Second Amendment pundits like Dana Loesch offered to teach Kim-K how to shoot back.
 

CA: Why You Should Vote No On California’s Proposition 63

California’s Proposition 63, if passed by voters in November, will fundamentally change how law-abiding citizens can purchase and transport ammunition in the state. In my opinion, based on 27 years of shooting nearly every day, this measure will only serve to make California residents less safe. And if you think this sort of effort will end with California, think again.

For its second televised roundtable discussion of questions on the Nevada ballot this November, Vegas PBS focused on No. 1, pertaining to background checks for gun purchses:

Shall Chapter 202 of the Nevada Revised Statues be amended to prohibit, except in certain circumstances, a person from selling or transferring a firearm to another person unless a federally-licensed dealer first conducts a federal background check on the potential buyer or transferee?

West Virginians with concealed carry permits are now able to travel further, with the addition of 16 different states agreeing to honor the permits this week.

Yesterday, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced the expansion, saying, “Protecting the Second Amendment rights of West Virginians continues to be a priority. Our office worked very hard not only to maintain the existing agreements, but also to expand that freedom for younger West Virginians who lawfully wish to exercise their constitutional rights.”

Ann Braden, the leader of Gun Sense Vermont, said she started her grassroots advocacy group to try.

“As a society we have a responsibility to look at what laws are on the books and how they are being enforced,” Braden said. “It’s important to recognize how many gun owners are responsible and take safety seriously. My organization is focused on the small fraction of people that most agree should not have access to guns.”

Gun Sense Vermont is seeking universal background checks in hopes of keeping violent felons from buying firearms.

The batch of emails released by Wikileaks on October 7 includes one in which Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon explained that Clinton “would support…closing the gun show loophole by executive order.”

Fallon also highlighted Clinton’s support of universal background checks–which have already failed in California, Colorado, Washington state, and Paris–and her support for a scenario wherein victims of crime would be able to sue gun manufacturers.
 

Fake news reports of a fake hollow point ammunition ban in 23 states are fake. Fakey fake.

The 23-state ammo ban hoax designed to make waves among gun rights enthusiasts was in keeping with prior Associated Media Coverage falsehoods, including claims of an impending motorcycle curfew in March 2016, a motorcycle speed ban in August 2016, a FDA e-juice ban in mid-2016, a codified "two pet maximum" ordinance in multiple jurisdictions (causing many households to believe they would be forced to abandon beloved pets), a 50-state ban on open carry, and the elimination of Wisconsin's food assistance programs.

In Warner Robins, Georgia a woman shot a man trying to break into her home at 1 a.m. Friday morning. She says she heard noises outside her window, got her gun and went to figure out what it was.

As she cracked open the door, she saw a man standing at the bottom of her front steps. The female resident knew this 27 year old as a casual acquaintance. He walked toward her and tried to push the door open. That’s when she shot him in the stomach.

The homeowner says she was trying to protect her three children.

But on Friday, officials from the sheriff’s office and district attorney’s office said the two agencies had reviewed the facts of the case and determined that Armendariz was defending himself when he shot Lauster.

“After further investigation, both agencies agree that Rocky Armendariz was acting in self-defense. Authorities are no longer looking at this as a murder case,” the district attorney’s spokesman, Patrick Hayes, said in a statement. “However, the suspect will be charged with felon in possession of a firearm."

At the end of September, Chief Judge Ramona V. Manglona of the United States District Court for the Northern Mariana Islands invalidated the majority of firearm restrictions challenged in a lawsuit in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI). This is the same Chief Judge Manglona who earlier this year struck down the last handgun ban in the United States, in Radich v. Guerrero.

Later, the judge discussed the Second Amendment and focused on state militias. He lectured, “That is what I thought they [the Founding Fathers] were talking about, which is not the right of an individual to keep a gun next to his bed.” Stripping the Second Amendment right of millions of Americans is moderation and pragmatism? (Breyer dissented in the landmark 2008 Heller decision that the Second Amendment does protect the individual's right to own a gun.)
 

FL: Hurricane Matthew Allows Floridians to Concealed Carry Without Permit

Recently coming to light is the fact that in 2015, Florida passed a bill allowing for the carrying of firearms during a state of emergency. This includes those who do not have a concealed carry permit. Governor Rick Scott officially declared a state of emergency on Monday due to Hurricane Matthew. This exemption applies for 48 hours after an evacuation is ordered. It can also be extended as needed by the governor.

For most libertarians, the idea of needing a “permit” to concealed carry is ludicrous. After all, the Second Amendment was designed for the precise reason of allowing private citizens to arm themselves without government encumbrances.

I have had a lot of questions about the new CCW (Concealed Carry Weapon) laws that are soon to take effect. This has been covered several times in the paper and radio, but I wanted to take the time and cover it again for those who may have missed any of the information before. There are two dates of importance within the new law (Senate Bill 656), but there are some things I would like to point out before going into the dates and what changes they bring.

There has been a lot of confusion regarding the permit itself because if you will be able to carry without a permit then why get one?
