    The Philadelphia City Council voted 14-3 on Thursday to pass a bill allowing the city's Department of Licenses and Inspections to ban shop owners from protecting themselves and their employees with bulletproof plexiglass. Philadelphia 8th District Councilwoman Cindy Bass, who sponsored the bill, said previously that having to see plexiglass represents an "indignity" to her constituents.

    Some politicians in the past have recommended deploying the National Guard to help Chicago quell gun violence, but Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin went even further on Thursday, suggesting the United Nations perhaps send in peacekeepers in the face of what he called a "quiet genocide." Boykin was traveling to New York to meet with Oscar Fernandez-Taranco of Argentina, the U.N. Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Support, to seek international help with "horrific levels of shootings" and other violent crime in West Side and South Side communities. "I'm hoping to appeal to the U.N. to actually come to Chicago and meet...

    When President Trump took office 10 months ago, the bottom was supposed to drop out of the firearms market. It did not happen. We have the numbers for the National Instant Background Check System (NICS) for the first eleven months of 2017. They are on track to be the second highest year on record. It is hard to see how they can miss that mark.December has been the highest month of the year for eight out of nine years. In two anomalous years, 2013, and 2014, it was the fourth highest and second highest month, respectively. November of 2017...

    In future battles, U.S. soldiers will have a new sidearm for personal protection. The Army’s new pistol may see more action than the last thanks to a design that has great potential for offensive purposes like close quarter combat. The Army has begun fielding the first Sig Sauer XM17 Modular Handgun System (MHS) sidearms. The Sig Sauer 9mm XM17, and the more compact version XM18, are replacing the M9 as the Army’s service pistol. This is the first change in about three decades since Beretta’s M9 was first introduced as the Army’s sidearm in the Cold War era back in...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi missed the mark in her interpretation of the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, voted into law by Republicans last week. That legislation, Pelosi declared on Twitter, comes with some unwanted invitations. Inviting violent criminals to carry concealed weapons doesn’t save livesInviting domestic abusers to carry concealed weapons doesn’t save livesInviting convicted stalkers to carry concealed weapons doesn’t save lives Yet the @HouseGOP just voted to do exactly that #StopCCR— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) December 6, 2017 The Washington Post Fact Checker gave Pelosi three Pinocchios for the misleading tweet. Contrary to the picture Pelosi tried to paint,...
  • Inmates to Turn Guns from Buyback Program Into Gardening Tools

    The New Haven Police Department will be buying back guns Saturday and those guns will be transformed into gardening tools, with help from inmates, and provided to schools to harvest vegetables. Once people turn guns in for gift cards, officers will destroy those guns “under the tutelage of a local and renowned sculptor,” Gar Waterman, police said. Volunteer members of Connecticut’s prison inmate population will receive the destroyed weapons and Warden Jose Feliciano and staff from the Connecticut Department of Corrections will oversee them as inmates forge the pieces into gardening tools. Some of the tools will then be donated...

    A judge on Dec. 8 released graphic video showing Daniel Shaver crawling on his hands and knees and begging for his life before he was shot and killed. The shooting, by Philip “Mitch” Brailsford, then an officer with the Mesa Police Department, occurred after officers responded to a call about a man allegedly pointing a rifle out of a fifth-floor window at a La Quinta Inn. The graphic video, which was released after a jury on Thursday acquitted the officer of murder and manslaughter charges, stoked outrage on social media and renewed calls for reforms in law enforcement. See the...
  • The PPsH-41 Submachine Gun Makes Me Want to Shout ‘Uraah!’

    War is Boring ^ | December 12, 2017 | Sebastien Roblin
    The PPsH-41 submachine gun undoubtedly reigns as an icon of the Soviet war machine in World War II, immortalized in combat photographs and in films such as Cross of Iron and The Tin Drum. Like the T-34 tank and the Il-2 Shturmovik attack plane, the “Pepsha” or “Papasha” (“Daddy”) was not only a rugged marvel of mass production, but performed well compared to more expensive contemporaries. Both the Red Army and later the Chinese and North Korean armies would employ the “burp gun” on an unprecedented scale.

    Many gun enthusiasts likes to show off their weaponry and sometimes they’re doing it without the thought of safety. For example Youtuber FPS Russia, he has some serious videos of action/explosive mayhem shots. Such as shooting at an object with tannerite that explodes on impact. Its very fun to watch but you should check out the debris flying around him. Did you see that debris from the truck? I admit it really is fun to watch and probably fun for FPS to be the one shooting it. Good thing he has 9 lives. However, we don’t recommend you do try...

    As information was still coming in regarding Monday’s attempted terror attack in the New York City subway, an MSNBC panel discussing the news ridiculously shifted the topic to outrage over guns and gun crime in the U.S. And on top of that, they bemoaned how President Trump would try to make the attack an immigration issue to support his temporary travel ban.The person responsible for kicking off the gun discussion was former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton. After commenting on how few terror attacks have hit the U.S. since 9/11 (missing a few as he rattled them off), he opined: We will continue to...

    An 84-year-old Korean War veteran is crediting the Lord Jesus Christ with his shot to the chest of a home intruder on Friday morning that left the intruder dead.

Lutz recounted that he woke up Friday morning at about 1:15 a.m.However, no sooner had they entered the house than they were met by Lutz and a handgun that he normally keeps under his pillow. Lutz says that he fired a shot in the dark and he and one of the men got into a...

While the choice of ceremony might seem odd to most couples, gun-themed weddings appear to be becoming increasingly popular.

    Our national tug-of-war over the right to keep and bear arms has been going badly for those of us who believe that the Second Amendment protects the right of each individual to protect himself as he thinks best. Back in 2008, Heller laid the foundation for a robust approach to the Second Amendment and in 2010, McDonald told local governments that they couldn’t disregard Heller and limit ownership of firearms however they pleased. And early last year, the Fourth Circuit’s Kolbe decision held that judges must employ strict scrutiny when they consider restrictions that state legislatures place on gun ownership....

    Years ago, my daughter Samantha and I were home in the afternoon (she was off school, and I was home with her) when there was a loud knock on the front door. When I answered, I discovered that there were about a hundred cops, including SWAT (tactical truck and all) at my door and in my front yard. They did not look happy. "Yes? Can I help you?" I asked, as I got about a hundred hard stares from our guests. "Daddy, how many cops are out there?" Sam asked. "All of them, I think..." "Sir, there was a bank...
  • The House concealed-carry bill is arrogant and foolish

    With New York City on track for fewer than 300 homicides in 2017, the House just passed a bill to let people with concealed-carry permits issued in any state to legally pack hidden heat in every other state, no matter what the local gun laws say. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, which would also strengthen the background-check system, passed 231-198, with six Democratic “ayes” and 14 Republican “nays.” Happily, it should die in the Senate, where it would need 60 votes but is unlikely to even get all 52 Republicans. But that doesn’t make the move any less...

    So, this has been said over and over again, but the Left is going to continue to play this tune. We’re not going the way of Germany circa 1939. We’re not. We have constitutional mechanisms that would prevent such a takeover, namely we don’t have an actual official act that would allow the president to assume emergency decree powers after a catastrophic event, such as the Capitol Building being set ablaze by someone. Yet, former President Obama decided to make a warning that the U.S. could be charting down that path at the Economic Club of Chicago this week. It...

    During the December 4 airing of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Carlson asked gun control proponent Mark Glaze if he was ready for the civil war that would follow any real attempt to confiscate firearms in the U.S. Glaze is the former head of Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety. Carlson’s comments came after Glaze bounced from one gun control idea to another, grasping to find one he could justify. His ideas ranged from background checks–which we already have–to all-out bans on certain categories of firearms. Carlson seized on the push to ban certain firearms and said, “You’re saying ban a class...

    House Republicans on Wednesday voted in favor of making concealed-carry permits valid across state lines, scoring a major victory for gun-rights supporters. But similar Senate legislation still faces an uncertain future, with top Democrats and other gun-control advocates rallying in opposition on Capitol Hill. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act passed 231-198 in the GOP-controlled House, with six Democrats voting in support. “For the millions of law-abiding citizens who lawfully carry concealed to protect themselves, for conservatives who want to strengthen our Second Amendment rights, and for the overwhelming majority of Americans who support concealed carry reciprocity, Christmas came early,” Rep....
