    IWB ^ | Daniel Carter
    Whenever a horrific mass shooting occurs like the one in Las Vegas a few weeks ago, many on the left become verbose in their insistence on tougher gun laws. Even though the gunman violated the gun laws already in place, the left still wants to add more laws. Even though violent acts are committed every day without guns, the left still wants more gun laws. Even though they despise the police force, they still want the police to be the only ones with firearms. This article will go over 5 examples of why you must never be fooled by the...
  • Twitter Stunned By Dana Loesch’s New NRA Ad: ‘This Is Just Straight Fascism Now’

    “We are witnesses to the most ruthless attack on a president…” exclaims Conservative political commentator and generally terrifying person Dana Loesch in a new Twitter video ad by the National Rifle Association. The unflinching, nearly unblinking delivery of Dana’s hyperbole in the video is introduced by an ominous sub-frequency and intercut with clips of the various ‘enemies’ and ‘saboteurs’ of the President and by Dana’s/the NRA’s logic, America. The thing that’s seemingly implied in the video is that gun-owners and NRA members are the last line of defense for America’s most sacred institutions and more importantly—of course—the Trump presidency.

    The Hill newspaper and Political have articles about how Democrats want to avoid discussing their views on gun control until after the 2018 mid-term elections.  From The Hill: Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) is urging his colleagues to stay away from gun control in the budget debate despite pressure from activist groups that argue the party needs to take a stand given the string of mass shootings across the country. Schumer, focused on next year’s midterm elections, thinks it is smarter to focus on economics — specifically President Trump’s tax plan, which Democrats say is a giveaway to corporations...

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 10/20/2017 | J McAdams
    There are several important characteristics to look for when choosing a self-defense handgun. First, the handgun must be in chambered in a cartridge powerful enough to reliably stop an assailant when the shot is placed properly. Second, the handgun must comfortably fit the hands of an average woman. This is a very important characteristic to consider because a properly fitting handgun will have less perceived recoil and be more enjoyable to shoot. Finally, the handgun must be reliable and easy to operate. When trusting your life to a handgun, it must work every time without fail. If it constantly malfunctions...
  • WATCH: Trayvon Martin’s Mom Blasts NRA For ‘Murder Insurance’ [VIDEO]

    The mother of Trayvon Martin criticized the National Rifle Association’s decision to offer people insurance if they fatally shoot someone in a new ad. Sybrina Fulton, Martin’s mother, starred in a nearly two-minute clip from gun control group Guns Down, calling on people to take a stand against two companies backing the NRA’s “carry guard” insurance. “They spend millions lobbying for laws that allow them to ‘shoot first’ and ‘stand their ground.’’But that just makes it easier to get away with murder,” Fulton says in the clip. “Now they’re selling insurance that covers the cost when a gun owner kills...

    After the horrific shooting in Las Vegas, many people ask why is gun ownership so high in the U.S.? That's an honest question. Maybe you've asked that of yourself or have had it pose to you by a liberal friend as I have. There are many reasons, and I'd like to touch of a few of the less mentioned ones. And no, they have nothing to do with hunting and target shooting.

    Actor Alec Baldwin and California lieutenant governor Gavin Newsom have helped launch a crusade to win an Oscar for the documentary Making A Killing: Guns, Greed And the NRA. Their reasons in this case may go beyond the predictable liberal virtue-signaling. When a sex scandal erupted against producer Harvey Weinstein, his first response was to pledge that he would "channel anger" in a campaign against the National Rifle Association, one of the most reliable devil-dolls liberals stick pins in to prove their bona fides. Weinstein must have been shocked when this gesture did not gain him instant forgiveness for his...
  • Australian gun advocates raise $21K to help farmer in self-defense fight

    Australian gun rights advocates have raised $21,000 to help a farmer get back his firearms and gun license, which were taken after after he used an unloaded gun to protect his family against a knife-wielding trespasser. David Dunstan encountered the trespasser, who was armed with a knife and wooden club, at the back door of his Riverine property in the eastern state of New South Wales last month, according to a GoFundMe page set up to raise money for the farmer. Dunstan then grabbed his unloaded .22-caliber rifle and was able to ward off the man and convince him to...

    Head-to-toe camouflage proved an inadequate disguise for two pig hunters attempting to cross a crocodile infested creek in Australia's Northern Territory. Alarming helmet camera footage shows the armed duo trudging through shallow water before a monster croc comes charging towards them from just metres away. As the giant animal bounds closer to the men, one can be heard yelling 'croc, croc, croc' while the other makes a swift dash away from the water. The hunter filming the event then unleashes fire on the huge reptile, aiming his shots directly towards the crocodile's head.

    The state Supreme Court will hear arguments on Nov. 14 in the closely watched case involving the families of victims of the Sandy Hook massacre who are suing the gun manufacturer that makes the weapon used in the shootings. The families of 10 victims filed the lawsuit in January 2015, seeking to hold the Remington Outdoor Co. liable for the massacre because it marketed a gun to the public it knew was made for military use. Adam Lanza shot his way into the Newtown school on Dec. 14, 2012, and fired 154 bullets in about five minutes from a Bushmaster...

    After the Massachusetts Legislature sped restrictions on bump stocks, a tool to increase the firing rate of guns, through the legislative process, senators opened the issue up to a public hearing. No members of the public showed up. "I was not going to ask most of our people to take a day off and come to the Statehouse to talk about something that already happened," said Jim Wallace, executive director of Gun Owners' Action League of Massachusetts.

When you head into bear country, you must accept that you are no longer at the top of the food chain.

    Federal agents caught the last suspect in Terry’s murder this week. Earlier this week, federal agents from both the United States and Mexico apprehended another suspect in the murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Jesus Rosario Favela Astorga was arrested in Mexico Monday and charged with first-degree murder, the Department of Justice announced Tuesday. Astorga is believed to be the final suspect linked to the death of Terry. However, the past administration played a major role in facilitating his tragic demise. Without the dangerous “Fast and Furious” gun-running scheme initiated by Barack Obama’s Justice Department, Agent Terry may...

    There is a stray bullet investigation ongoing in the south of Michigan, in Northville Township. A window was shattered on about the 10th or 11th of October, 2017. I am skeptical of these type of incidents. They are quite rare. The image of an Iraqi woman showing investigators two complete rifle cartridges, that supposedly hit her residence, is memorable.This incident appears to be real, not a hoax like the famous Iraqi incident. The window was shattered. It was broken in a believable way. The bullet was found with the shattered glass. The bullet looks fresh and has rifling marks....

    Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, and Sheryl Crow are among a number of celebrities urging Americans to “reject the NRA” and concealed carry of firearms in the wake of the shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert this month. Laura Dern, Bill Hader, and Adam Scott are also taking part in the anti-gun campaign, as is noted gun control advocate Julianne Moore. The celebrities are part of the Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety PSA against the NRA specifically, and against gun rights generally. In typical Everytown fashion, the PSA does not present real solutions to the attack in Vegas–after...

    Thomas Massie, the Kentucky Republican who leads the Congressional Second Amendment Caucus, and Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat who is one of the Senate's most persistent gun controllers, do not agree on much. But the congressman and the senator both see the folly of the National Rifle Association's position on bump stocks, the firearm accessories that Stephen Paddock used in his deadly October 1 attack on country music fans in Las Vegas. The NRA opposes a legislative ban on bump stocks but wants the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to reconsider the question of whether they are legal....
