... "Another problem with this status is that, even if the U.S. were to treat all suspected terrorists as lawful combatants, they would still be treated as combatants. All 'enemy' personnel – the supply clerk, the mechanic, the cook, the secretary at headquarters, – are fair targets since they are part of the military machine. Transferring these practices of war to the current struggle against terrorism would mean that anyone, from any country –including the U.S. – can be an 'enemy,' whether the U.S. has declared war on their nation or not; that the entire planet, including all the U.S. is the battlefield; and any human being in the world, including any U.S. citizen, can not only be detained, but can be targeted by the military and killed outright if the President thinks they might be a terrorist ..." ...

"Bill Dietrick, observing from a long career serving his country and the public interest, has this to say about gun industry companies being driven from their home states by insane feel-good laws being promoted at the state house level:"
"Something to keep in mind in regards to firearms manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors, etc. moving their operations: the economic loss to the state is far greater than those jobs would indicate."

"For instance, Remington is seriously negotiating to move out of New York, with five other states, as a result of Cuomo’s ill-considered ramming through of his new idiot bills." ...

"... They were in a gun shop and found the exact gun his dad had been wanting for a number of years. The price was right, but the problem was that they were all the way across the state of Texas from their hometown ... His dad was going to pass on the gun because his 'instant' background checks seemed to always get delayed, and he wasn’t willing to make the [nine-hour] drive again. As a solution, my friend pulled out his Texas concealed carry permit and bought the gun on the spot. ... After the sale, he handed the gun to his father and his father handed him a check for the price of the gun. In doing that, they both committed a federal felony, as did the dealer who sold it to them and witnessed their private transaction." ...

The No CPR policy may be legitimate and conventional, but the statement from the institution was that it was misunderstood. The no guns on campus policy might as well say No CPR on Campus. It's the same thing; response in the absence of first responders. Gun owners say that a No Guns policy is misguided, but we really know better." ...

"I don’t know how many times we’ve said it but it bears repeating: the NRA has to reach out beyond it’s OFWG base to survive. Actually, never mind them. Our Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms depends (in part) on the NRA reaching out to minority gun owners. And . . . wait for it . . . Democrats! Or, at the least, undecideds. By literally aligning himself with Fox News commentator and Blaze bombast Glenn Beck, NRA jefe Wayne LaPierre is sending a clear message that gun rights do NOT transcend party politics. Which they don’t, really. But perception is reality. The more the NRA can do to appear inclusively mainstream [sic] the more popular its message of firearms freedom. ..." ...

But since I’m not much of a basketball fan, I’m going to focus on another type of madness that is currently gripping our country. I would like to focus on the madness surrounding gun control. You see, politicians and organizations that are vehemently anti-gun have been trying for years to implement significantly stronger gun control laws. The problem was that the majority of Americans were not in favor of increased gun control, according to multiple surveys. There was no political will to enact further gun control measures. ..."

"'Shares of gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson plunged this week,' investorguide.com reports, 'despite reporting third quarter earnings that surprisingly more than tripled from the prior year quarter.' The Great Gun Surge has pumped-up the volume on the gunmaker’s bottom line. Revenues rose 38.8% ($136.2m). Profits soared by 26 cents per share ($14.6 million). That’s a 228% increase from the prior year quarter. To say Smith & Wesson Security Solutions has been a drag on profits would be like saying Rosie Huntington-Whitely would look good holding a double barreled shotgun. Which Smith doesn’t make. Anyway, S&W tried dumping the division. ... So that’s good too. What’s not so good . . ." ...

"It is no secret that a gunshot can create an immensely loud noise. In fact, a single gunshot creates the same volume of noise as that of a firework display listened to only three feet away. One shot can be measured at 150dB, 65 decibels louder than what is considered to be a safe volume of noise. This can seriously affect your hearing and cause a variety of problems including tinnitus and temporary hearing loss." ...

"Tiger McKee at tacticalwire.com writes:"

"When it comes to long guns, one of the most common issues we see is shooters not getting the stock of the weapon in the actual pocket of the shoulder. This creates several problems. If you’re firing something with serious recoil, especially shotguns, the stock will slam into the shoulder with enough force to bruise. The stock needs to be in the pocket for accuracy, creating a consistent platform and efficient recovery from recoil for follow-up shots. Getting the stock located in the pocket is also crucial for efficiency. When you bring the muzzle up and obtain a cheek weld against the stock the sights should fall into alignment with your eyes, without having to reposition your head . . ." ...
