    Assault Weapons Ban Debate Rekindled -5

    by

    Is there momentum in Congress for a new automatic weapons ban? Certainly, in the wake of the Tucson shootings, some anti-gun legislators vowed to restore the 10-year ban on select semiautomatic firearms and "high-ammo clips" that expired in 2004.

    The first knee-jerk reactions surfaced immediately in the aftermath of the Jan. 8 shootings. Since then, the impetus appears to have waned.

    Perhaps Sen. Richard Lugar's experience is the most illustrative. On Jan. 14, Lugar told Bloomberg Television’s Al Hunt that the AWB ban should be restored. The next day, the Indiana Republican said that's not what he said. Or, at least, he might have said what he said, but what he said was not what he meant.

    Hot from SHOT: Remington 700-1

    by

    Tyler Freel talks about his favorite rifle: The Remington Model 700 dressed in .25-06. This year Freel will take the rifle into the mountains of Alaska on a sheep hunt.

    The stainless steel and synthetic stock make for a tough rifle that can survive the elements on even Freel's toughest hunts.

    Tactical Shotgun: Is a 20 ga. Enough?-8

    by

    A couple weeks back I flew down to Colorado to get a look at Weatherby’s lineup of new products for 2011. Included in the mix is the SA-459 in 20 ga. This shotgun is in Weatherby’s “Threat Response” family of guns — apparently if they use the word “tactical” in California Nancy Pelosi will emerge from her crypt and eat the soul of a child — and is geared toward the personal defense crowd.

    I’m a big fan of personal defense shotguns. I have an 870 that I’ve modified with an extended mag tube, collapsible buttstock, 18-inch barrel and a Surefire weapon light forend for my home.

    Anti-tax, pro-gun? Then you are a 'terrorist'-1

    by

    Don't like being taxed to pay for wasteful government programs? Want to ensure your Second Amendment rights aren't infringed upon? Willing to attend rallies to peacefully and legally demonstrate how important these issues are to you?

    Then you -- yes, you! -- just might be a "terrorist."

    According to bulletins issued to the Pennsylvania Office of Homeland Security in April and June by the Institute of Terrorism Research and Response, anti-tax and Second Amendment rallies staged in Harrisburg this year warranted "terrorism-alert" warnings.

    Fight Our Wars, But You Can't Own a Handgun-10

    by

    The National Rifle Association has filed a lawsuit challenging laws that prohibit 18-20 year olds from legally purchasing a firearm from a federally licensed dealer.

    The suit was filed on Sept. 7 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas in Lubbock against the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms. Some legal pundits say it could eliminate yet another unconstitutional prohibition from federal gun laws.

    The plaintiff is James A. DíCruz, 18, of Lubbock, a well-trained, lawful owner of both long guns and handguns, and a decorated competitive Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps marksman. According to the suit, when DíCruz visited Sharp Shooters, Inc., and asked if he was legally able to buy a handgun, he was told he couldn't.

    A-Team Rides Again-13

    by

    I pity the fool who isn’t excited for this summer’s release of the A-Team. For gun nuts of a certain age, the four men who were wrongly convicted by a military court of “a crime they didn’t commit” can’t help but evoke a mixture of nostalgia combined with a satchel charge of guilt-free napalm-fueled adrenaline.

    What's Hot, What's Not-6

    by

    After spending a couple days here in Vegas looking at new products it is clear that this is not going to be a huge year for new guns. No, instead the story is going to be ammunition. The themes? Value and performance. 

    For value there is a new line of ammunition that Weatherby is introducing that will cost significantly less than what we currently pay to shoot rifles in Weatherby chamberings. Shooters who own either a .257 Wby. or a .300 Wby. will soon be able to purchase a box of ammunition that doesn’t require a second mortgage.

    Swiss Bliss-14

    by

    If you think that Americans are obsessed with preserving their gun rights, you haven't seen anything until you've been to Switzerland.

    Rich Wehr, in a column published earlier in the month in the Evansville, Ind. Courier & Press, offers some interesting observations about Switzerland that may stun Nanny-Fascists and anti-gun whackoes.

    The Enemy Within-10

    by

    Alan Scholl warns in The New American that state and federal elected officials share a “widespread ignorance and fear of guns” that could dismantle the Second Amendment piecemeal. But a more subtle danger lurks in the form of “a neon fox in the henhouse”—businesses that profit by gun control.
