Instead, the gathering was an embarrassingly lame example of either extremely poor planning or rank disinterest in anything the individual had to say. With sun breaking through the clouds, accompanied by typical Northern Virginia heat and humidity, the crowd topped out at 18 individuals during the height of the event. This does not include the individual himself or a small contingent of reporters, but it does include his own staff and others who actually accompanied him to the site.

People continued to react Friday to the home invasion Thursday afternoon in Botetourt County in which a resident shot an intruder.

Police said the suspect, Edward Barbour, held a homeowner at gunpoint and asked for keys to a truck before another person inside the house got a gun and shot him once in the neck.

Tod Burke, a criminal justice expert and former police officer, has published work on home invasions and said that, based on the evidence he’s seen, the homeowners were well within their rights.

The Daily Signal has the story of Ronald Stolarczyk, who lives in the Utica, New York region. He found himself forced into a position where he had to use lethal force to save his life in his own home when armed intruders broke in. He thankfully survived (the intruders did not) but that turned out to only be the beginning of his problems.
 

PA: The AR-15: America’s rifle or weapon of choice for mass shooters?

Schlossberg and state Rep. Peter Schweyer, both Democrats from Allentown, support two bills that target certain assault and semi-automatic weapons, including the AR-15.

The legislation would effectively ban the possession, purchase, transfer, use or manufacture of those weapons in Pennsylvania, with exceptions for military and law enforcement. But it would allow people who owned the weapons prior to the date of enforcement to continue doing so.

No one can say how many shootings were not even attempted because an intended victim or someone in the crowd might be armed. We could take a significant step toward stopping gun violence by allowing citizens with clean records, who take the proper training (as with a driver’s license) and demonstrate their ability to carry a weapon.
 

Three Great Choices for a Survival .22

The reasons to have a bug out/survival .22 rimfire (or two) are endless and unique to you and your environment. In general, hunting probably tops the list but self-defense could also enter into the equation. Since we are talking about an out-of-the-norm event, I would want to keep my selections simple and would consider the track record of reliability with my chosen gun, whether by reputation, personal experience, or better yet, both. Confidence in the firearm’s system—including accessories and ammunition–as well as my ability to use them well, is critical. Efficiency of operation, basic field maintenance, and ease of transport are also points to consider.
 

Biden ‘Smart Gun’ Comment Shows How Dumb He is on Guns

Unsurprisingly, Biden either doesn’t know what he’s talking about or he does and doesn’t care that he’s spreading lies. While we’ve seen numerous abortive attempts over the years to bring the technology to market, recent ones involve technologies relying on fingerprint recognition, bracelets and rings, and embedded RFID chips. If DNA is to be added into the mix, it would be interesting to see that idea fleshed out, including how the sample will be extracted and then analyzed to allow for immediate firing by “authorized” users under all conceivable real-world conditions.

The word plinking implies rimfire shooting. While rimfire means affordable ammunition, accessible guns, and one of the most purely enjoyable times on the range. With just a little preparation, it’s easy to elevate just another day on the range to one nobody will soon forget. In this article, we’re going to look at how to create your own plinker’s paradise.
 

A Case at the Intersection of the Taxing Power and the Second Amendment

Several years ago, Nick Bronsozian was charged with possession of an unregistered machinegun under a tax law statute. The provision in question, 26 U.S.C. § 5861(d), says that in order to have a machinegun registered, a tax must be paid on it. Simple enough, right? Bronsozian didn’t pay his tax. Case closed. That’s what the government argued anyway, but the situation is more complicated than that.

A subsequently enacted law, 18 U.S.C. § 922(o), prevents the government from registering and accepting tax payments on new machineguns. So Bronsozian was charged and convicted of a felony for not paying a tax that the government would not allow him to pay. If that strikes you as odd, it’s probably because you’ve read the Constitution.
 

TX: Guns vs. Marijuana: Will Texas Give Cannabis Users Their Second Amendment Rights?

Raines’s predicament is nothing new in the marijuana-policy debate in America. What is relatively new is the venue and the players involved: a conservative state, and conservative-championed military veterans.

“To tell Texans you can’t purchase a firearm if you have a compassionate use card is unconscionable,” Rachel Malone, the Texas director of firearms advocacy group Gun Owners for America, told the Dallas Morning News. “We should not force people to choose between gun ownership and taking care of themselves.”

Large, powerful, political organizations such as the National Rifle Association (NRA) are seldom transparent or without internal struggles.

The internal struggles at the NRA have been enlarged to engulf Christopher W. Cox, head of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA). Christopher Cox has been suspended from his position at the head of the NRAILA.

A Louisiana resident is suing the state Bond Commission over the panel’s controversial decision last spring to exclude two large banks from underwriting contracts because of the banks’ corporate gun policies.

The lawsuit challenges the legality of the move -- arguing it was arbitrary, politically driven and costly for taxpayers -- and seeks an order barring the Bond Commission from doing anything similar in the future.

Colonel Jeff Cooper, founder of Gunsite Academy, often told the story of an acquaintance in South America who stepped out of his front door to see three armed men running towards him at close range. Cooper’s friend quickly drew his pistol and took down all three attackers. As I recall the story, he did this before any of the three men could get a shot off.

New York City announced Friday it has amended rules restricting where licensed guns can be taken outside the home, a move intended to prompt the Supreme Court to dismiss a challenge from gun rights groups.

The change, posted on a city website without fanfare, allows gun owners to take their firearms to a home, business or shooting range outside city limits. Until now, the city had limited those with possession licenses to seven shooting ranges inside city limits.
 

ME: Legislature Adjourns Sine Die, Gun Control Measures Defeated

On June 20th, the Maine Legislature adjourned from the first session of the 129th Legislature. During this session, several egregious pieces of anti-gun legislation were defeated, including bills to criminalize private transfers of firearms and ban many commonly-owned standard capacity magazines. Thwarting efforts to threaten shooting ranges, the Legislature instead took steps to protect ranges, passing a bill that Governor Janet Mills signed into law. Unfortunately, the Legislature missed an opportunity to pass a Stand Your Ground measure, LD 533, that would have strengthened Mainers’ fundamental right to self-defense anywhere they are legally allowed to be.

Pasted below is a list of many of (not all) of Montana Shooting Sports Association's political successes, done on behalf of Montana gun owners. No other pro-gun political entity in the US, heck in the World, has the exemplary string of successes that Montana Shooting Sports Association can claim.

So, when you exhort your friends to join MSSA and they ask why, offer them this list. Tell them that the MSSA is the primary gun rights advocacy group in the State working on behalf of all Montana gun owners.

The government of the United Kingdom just garnered its first conviction in an “exciting” new field of oppression.

It nailed a man for making a 3-D printed gun.

As AFP reports, in October of 2017, London police invaded the apartment of Tendai Muswere, a 26 year-old student from Zimbabwe studying in England. Searching for marijuana, the police claim they found the components for an evil inanimate object, a 3-D printed gun capable of firing one shot.

When Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb took the stage at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in his home state, he had a little surprise in store for the audience. During his speech, the governor signed House Bill 1284, a concealed-carry reform bill, into law.

HB 1284 will make it easier for law-abiding Hoosiers to defend themselves by expanding self-defense options in two ways.

The Virginian-Pilot reports Yancey wants to bring a federal procedure to the state level that would crack down on illegal firearms trading. The national procedure, called Rule 35, encourages prisoners to tell police if they know who's selling stockpiles of stolen guns. According to the federal policy, if those offenders then give police information that could bring the criminals to justice, a judge could slash the inmates' sentences.
