"Is this where all the ammo’s been going? MTM Case-Gard says sometimes the safest place to store things is right under foot. Toward that end, they’ve just come out with the Survivor ammo can that’s perfect for subterranean implantation. They don’t give the dimensions, but say it will hold six hundred rounds of .45 ACP. That’s gotta be what…almost 1400 rounds of .22lr? Just make sure you don’t forget where you dig that hole. Press release after the jump . . ." ...

"In my time as a writer for TTAG, I’ve toured my share of manufacturing facilities. From the small-time operations like the scrappy pre-Freedom Group AAC (when it was still under Kevin Brittingham) which looked only a little larger than my parent’s garage, to the sprawling operation that is Leupold & Stevens’ operation in Beaverton, Oregon. After you see a couple, they all start to look the same. The same machines, the same floor layout, the same processes…it gets hard to distinguish what makes one manufacturer any better than the others. But for FN Manufacturing (FNM), the plant that makes FN guns in the U.S., the difference is something they shout from the rooftops: their people . . ." ...

"Beretta U.S.A. Corp. probably won’t expand its Crossroads Parkway property in Spotsylvania County because of changes coming to the nearby area, a company executive said this week."

"Beretta ... runs a 70,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution center on nine acres at 9500 Crossroads Parkway ..."

"The company has long considered the possibility of expanding that site, said Jeff Reh, Beretta USA’s general counsel and vice-general manager. The company believed that area would remain industrial-focused."

"Those plans likely changed when an adjacent site off U.S. 17 was chosen as the new home for Spotsylvania’s Virginia Railway Express station, and plans were submitted for a mixed-use development next to the station." ...

"Forty years ago, my father, Neal Knox, was one of the first to shoot and write about an innovative new concept in precision rifle technology: fiberglass stocks. Among the first manufacturers in the new field was ... McMillan Fiberglass Stocks. It didn’t take long for fiberglass stocks to become the standard for serious precision rifle competitors and then gain acceptance in military and hunting applications. From fiberglass stocks, the McMillans moved into making complete rifles, ammunition and other firearm-related accessories and services. Now Gale McMillan’s son Kelly, who has been involved in the family businesses from the beginning, has introduced a new firearm-related service from the McMillan family: credit card processing." ...

"Back at the beginning of the month, Seattle Gun Rights Examiner Dave Workman revealed a 'gun control playbook,' written by three Democrat political operatives last year, to be used as a propaganda manual for furtherance of the forcible citizen disarmament agenda. Titled 'Preventing Gun Violence Through Effective Messaging,' it is remarkable in that it is very clearly a tacit acknowledgement that facts and logic are doing the gun prohibitionists no favors, and so they should rely instead on raw, ill-informed (the more ill-informed, the better) emotion." ...

... "Be honest: How many times have you sat there in the dark at the movies and glanced at the exit doors near the screen, waiting for a shadowy figure to slip in? How many times have you thought, 'If it happens, I'll drop to the floor and play dead' or 'I'll charge him, I'm not going to be a victim'?" ...

Submitter's Note: Um, zero? Of course I check the exits when I take my seat and mentally walk through what I'll do if there is a fire, but I'm not paranoid and I don't constantly scan for "shadowy figures". This doesn't mean I am in condition White, just that I don't live my life in trembling terror.

Oh, and "charging" an active shooter is a great way to become a victim; if you have a clear line of fire just shoot the S.O.B.

"This brings to mind one common-sense answer to this problem. The city needs to provide shooting ranges and maybe even training for gang members. Then in the future when a gang member wears the wrong color shirt on the wrong block, he can be cleanly killed by the other gang member, who is enjoying his Second Amendment rights. ..." ...

"'We could possibly effect change through education,' Gershenson said."

"The commissioners, who together represent Farmington and Farmington Hills, said their report, 'Gun Violence in Oakland County,' takes a broad approach to aid in stemming the rise of gun-related tragedies." ...

"Weaponry and war has been a concern for humanity from its very earliest days. Empires from Greece, Rome and Persia to Napoleonic France and Colonial England have all been built on a backbone of superior firepower. From Roman’s peasants fearing Hannibal’s elephants to Irish farmers dreading the site[sic] of Viking warships on the horizon, from Paul Revere’s 'The British are coming!' to the 1950’s 'Duck and Cover' drills, weaponry has haunted our nightmares for as long as it’s fueled the dreams of boys and conquerors." ...

Large public units are beyond passe, with most self-defense formations being local, made up of friends, family and neighbors. They've learned the lessons of the 90s when large public units were routinely infiltrated, riddled with informers and provocateurs and subject to set-ups such as the ATF carried out on Bob Starr over in Georgia. The overwhelming majority of armed citizenry formations these days are, at best, squad-sized. ..." ...

Also they seem to misquote, to suit their own agenda, House Bill 937, where it states carriers are permitted to carry in restaurants that serve alcohol. I did not read anywhere that it states they were allowed in just bars. The owners of any establishment may post a no weapons permitted sign and that would take care of that perception." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
By calling attention to a well-regulated militia for the security of the Nation, and the right of each citizen to keep and bear arms, our Founding Fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny, which gave rise to the second amendment, will ever be a major danger to our Nation, the amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic military-civilian relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of the country. For that reason I believe the second amendment will always be important. --JOHN F. KENNEDY
