When testing a gun, I like to shoot it under pressure. This is where you really pick up the subtleties of how it handles and performs. The schedule doesn’t always allow it but when I can, I shoot a match with it.

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told an African American talk show host last week: "If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black." It was not a one-off remark. After strong condemnation, including from some fellow Democrats, Biden attempted to walk back his statement, suggesting he was trying to be funny. Biden has made other demeaning comments about minorities for many years. They are part of a pattern.
 

Perpetual Lockdown Batters Remnants of New York City’s Long-Lived Gun Culture

Some of America’s most pro-gun people ironically inhabit some of its most anti-gun locales. Like plants that can survive the harshest desert climates, they are among the hardiest of their kind. And for those in the know, they are as much a part of the Second Amendment landscape as cacti are to the desert. In New York City, epicenter both to America’s COVID-19 outbreak and to anti-Second Amendment fervor, one of the city’s gritty gun culture icons has already succumbed to the economic pressures of the Big Apples interminable lockdown and another is fighting for its life. Your help can ensure the latter survives.

The Oklahoma legislature passed SB 1081 on 15 May, the last day of the legislative session. It was one of the last bills passed in 2020 before the legislature adjourned. It appears to be the first anti-red flag law passed by any legislature. The legislature passed the bill, had it signed, enrolled, returned to the House, signed, returned to the Senate, and sent to the Governor, all on the same day.
 

Understanding the Origins of American Gun Culture Can Help Reframe Today’s Gun Debate

On the warm afternoon of June 8, 1844, an armed patrol of 15 Texas Rangers was traveling through the Hill Country of south central Texas when it came under attack by 75 Comanche warriors. Until this day, encounters between the Rangers and Comanche—fierce and able fighters who’d been raiding Texan settlements for years, as the Spanish and then Anglo presence intruded on their homeland—had generally gone badly for the Rangers. Not only were they often outnumbered, they were also effectively out-weaponized. The Rangers had better guns, but even the best guns at the time needed to be reloaded after every shot.

Gun-related crimes and fatalities are on the rise in New Zealand, despite the country’s recent attempts to ban and confiscate many commonly owned firearms over the past year, according to Radio New Zealand (RNZ). “New figures obtained by RNZ show that [2019] had the highest rates of gun crime and deaths involving firearms for nearly 10 years,” says the article.
 

Glimpse of Toy Gun in School-Related Zoom Call Results in Police Response to Family Home

Of all the recent developments in American life arising from state lockdown orders, perhaps none is so sinister as public officials encouraging people to inform on their neighbors and community members for perceived violations of supposed safety protocols. This trend is made all the worse by the fact that people are getting an unprecedented glimpse into each others’ homes through pervasive online video conferences now being used to facilitate activities like work, school, and religious worship. For one family in Pennsylvania, the “discomfort” a schoolmate’s parent felt about seeing a toy gun in a Zoom call even resulted in police showing up at their home.

Numbers don’t lie: Chicago just posted its deadliest Memorial Day holiday weekend since 2015, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, which keeps a running count of the dead.

According to the newspaper, 10 people were murdered over the weekend and 39 more were wounded; not the best supporting evidence for the controversial gun and ammunition tax adopted in Cook County early in the last decade. During the Memorial Day weekend of 2015, a dozen people were slain, the newspaper recalled. However, overall, murders have declined in the city since bloody 2016 when more than 770 people were killed.

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) claimed, without evidence, on Tuesday that she has seen shutdown protesters carrying “automatic rifles” outside her house. Whitmer held a press conference to address allegations that her husband had asked for preferential treatment to get his boat in the water before the holiday weekend. She said he “joked” with the business, asking if his wife’s position could get this bumped up the line for service.

The truncated cone hollow point (TCHP) is a truncated cone bullet with a hole in the tip to promote expansion on impact and to boost the stopping power. The standard truncated cone is a smooth-feeding bullet with more penetration than your average round nose or soft point, due to the shape.

For those who love big bore revolvers, the .454 Casull (pronounced like KA-sool) is often a favorite. Longer than the .45 Long Colt and much more powerful, this ammunition spent more than half of its life as a popular wildcat, not becoming a standard, factory round until it’d been in the handloader arena for over 40 years.
 

How careless rhetoric will doom the second amendment.

The rhetoric we use to discuss and debate a given subject is powerful, perhaps more so than any other aspect of a political battle. In the fight to win back our liberties from over a century of legislation, written to strip us of our right to keep and bear arms, we are losing. The question that must be asked is why? Most Americans do not even support stricter gun control, yet we are quickly losing in the context of legislation and in the culture war. The real engine behind the attack on our rights is the language used, not only by anti-gun activists and politicians but also by those of us who support gun rights.

 

California Exploits Ammunition Background Checks to Confiscate Guns

Since last July 1, California has required background checks for those purchasing firearm ammunition. As we noted, by December 2019 the state had run 345,000 background checks and rejected 62,000 Californians legally entitled to purchase ammunition, including off-duty sheriff’s deputies purchasing shotgun shells to hunt ducks. Officials blamed glitches in the system, but for Ari Freilich of the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, the system was working as intended, as a “red flag” law allowing seizure of weapons from those who have committed no crime. As it turns out, Freilich was on to something.

In business in one form or another for over a century, New York’s famous John Jovino Gun Shop has closed its doors for the last time. Run since 1995 by Charles “Gun King Charlie” Hu, who retained the branding, the business will not reopen after being shuttered due to Gov. Cuomo’s strict COVID-19 response which made no exception for the firearms industry.

I recently returned from SHOT Show, where hanging in plain sight behind scores of semi-automatic pistols and ARs of every imaginable make were myriad new tactical shotguns. Indeed, with the advancements of bird’s-head-gripped guns that are not legally defined as shotguns and therefore can be made with shorter barrels, bullpup configurations and also removable-box-magazine-fed and AR-inspired shotguns, tactical shotgun gurus are experiencing more innovation in the last few years than we’ve seen in the last 50. That’s right, the golden age of tactical shotguns is upon us.

Introduced in 2001, the SUB-2000 has proven itself a popular firearm for plinking, backpacking, and bug-out bags. One of its signature traits is the unique ability to fold in half. When folded, the overall is reduced from 30.5-inches to 16.25-inches, making it extremely compact and lightweight. Unloaded, it weighs in at just 4.25-pounds.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Let us contemplate our forefathers, and posterity, and resolve to maintain the rights bequeathed to us from the former, for the sake of the latter. The necessity of the times, more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude, and perseverance. Let us remember that `if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom.' It is a very serious consideration...that millions yet unborn may be the miserable sharers of the event." --Samuel Adams, speech in Boston, 1771
