NRA Statement on Bump Fire Stock Rule

Last week, the Department of Justice announced that it would soon be releasing a final rule classifying “bump-stock-type-devices” as “machineguns” under the National Firearms Act. These devices came to national attention in October 2017 after the horrific attack in Las Vegas. As multiple media accounts correctly pointed to at the time, there was overwhelming legislative support for proposals that went far beyond these specific devices and some that could have potentially jeopardized all semiautomatic firearms. Rather than sit back and watch a legislative over-reaction, the NRA asked Congress to let ATF review its prior determinations on bump fire stocks.

It’s the only one of its kind in a 15-mile radius, and RTSP co-owner and chief executive officer Rick Friedman recognizes the challenges that come with operating his shooting range in a state with some of the strictest gun laws in the nation. “I would love to have the freedoms that everyone else enjoys, but I’ll always be a Jersey boy” Friedman, who co-owns the RTSP gun range, told LocalSource on Dec. 13. “I want to change my home and I want my home to recognize the rights of other states instead of running away. If I leave, they win.”

UPDATED: This week’s “reign of terror” initiated by a man identified as twice-deported ex-felon Gustavo Garcia-Ruiz demonstrated once again that California’s adopted “sanctuary” status and restrictive gun control laws have failed, and some will add “miserably.”

Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux ripped the state’s sanctuary policies that made it possible for Garcia to be released from custody when he could not be held for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

In the modern age, Seneca is considered one of the stalwarts of Negative Visualization. Most of us would recognize the concept more readily as the “What If?” mindset; “what if this happens? Then I will respond in this manner.” It is the leading concept for being prepared both mentally and physically and, at its core, the centralized philosophical concept of personal defense. Without question, it also relies on the mind to be balanced and to be able to reflect on personal experience to temper experience against over-preparedness.
 

Venezuela and the Paradox of Plenty: A Cautionary Tale About Oil, Envy, and Demagogues

As Venezuela falls into the abyss of economic collapse – the economy has halved in five years, a contraction worse than the Great Depression or the Spanish Civil War – a simplistic narrative in the American press has formed, which starts with the Chavez regime seizing control of the country in 1998. (The charismatic populist Hugo Chavez is, after all, the leader most Americans are familiar with when talking about Venezuela, as he made worldwide headlines with his 2006 UN speech where he called U.S. President Bush "a devil" while celebrities like Sean Penn and Michael Moore cheered him on.)

MO: Missouri Lawmakers are Pre-Filing Gun Control Legislation for 2019 Legislative Session

Missouri gun owners are concerned about a pre-filed bill... that allows police to take away guns.. based solely on accusations by a family member. For example if someone at your household or a family member like your mom, dad, sister, brother, or spouse thought that you were in a bad place and shouldn't be in possession of a gun... they could call the police and law enforcement would come take your guns away from you.

Background checks should stop violent felons from buying guns. State Rep. Margaret Good just filed legislation to make all sellers actually use them. “I don’t know if people understand that if you buy off the internet in Florida, if you buy off of Craiglist or you do it person to person, a background check is not required,” Good said. “That’s easy access for violent criminals to buy guns.”

A dancing FBI agent who accidentally fired his gun, striking a man in the leg after doing a backflip at a Denver bar in June will avoid jail time after pleading guilty Friday to third-degree assault.

Chase Bishop, 30, struck a plea deal with prosecutors and was sentenced to two years of probation, the Denver Post reported. He also must pay more than $1,600 in fines and court costs.

FBI spokeswoman Kelsey Pietranton declined to say if he would continue to work at the agency.

When one considers the history of U.S. machine guns or automatic rifles, the first thought might not be that one was designed in France. But it happened. Years ago, the United States military once put its stock in the French-designed Hotchkiss et Cie Benét-Mercié, made in 1909. The Benét was used by the French after the invasion by the German army in 1914 and was later adopted for use by the U.S. military. The design was manufactured in the United States by Springfield Armory and Colt Manufacturing.

That’s what Rob Southwick, president of market research firm Southwick Associates, said after analyzing statistical data from the American Sportfishing Association, National Shooting Sports Foundation and the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation.

Chronic Wasting Disease, which is fatal for any deer that contracts it, has been found in three neighboring states. In two of them, Michigan and Illinois, deer with CWD have been found within 30 miles of the Indiana border.

A man called the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office to report men shooting shotguns at decoys. He thought they were on his side of the river. A dispatcher said it could be a hunting violation. An officer warned the owner of a greyhound that was running loose with a yellow Lab named Romeo. The caller who reported the free-roaming canines said the greyhound was biting other dogs through fences. The owner said the dog had been missing for a few days.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
