WHEN COPS ARRIVED, THE 48-YEAR-OLD MAN WAS OUTSIDE, WAVING THE KNIFE, CLEARLY A POTENTIAL THREAT. REPEATEDLY, HE REFUSED POLICE ORDERS TO DROP HIS WEAPON.

INSTEAD, POLICE OFFICERS RECOGNIZED THE MAN WAS IN THE THROES OF A MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS AND BACKED OFF.ON THANKSGIVING DAY, DANIEL SPEARS OPENED THE DOOR TO HIS BADIN HOME AND IMMEDIATELY FELT SICK TO HIS STOMACH.

Even in gun-lovin’ Florida — where you can fish with an AR-15 — we have our limits

THE LEDGER.COM December 1, 2020 – I frequently write about what Florida does wrong. But today I’m writing about what Florida has done right. And remarkably, it’s on the topic of guns.

Don’t get me wrong: Florida is gun-crazy in many ways.

We hand out concealed-weapons permits like Tic Tacs, leading the nation. And we’ve pioneered the homicide-inducing stand your ground gun law —…

NAT’L – OPINION – “V” Is For Victory: The Smith & Wesson Victory Model Revolver

THE SMITH & WESSON “VICTORY MODEL“ WAS CHAMBERED IN .38 SPL. AND HAD A 4" BARREL AS MADE UNDER A WORLD WAR II U.S. NAVY CONTRACT. IN MID-1940, WHEN IT WAS BECOMING INCREASINGLY LIKELY THAT THE UNITED STATES WOULD BE DRAWN INTO THE WAR RAGING IN EUROPE, THE U.S. NAVY, ALONG WITH ALL BRANCHES OF OUR ARMED FORCES, WAS EVALUATING THE PROJECTED DEMAND FOR ARMS. THE STANDARD HANDGUN FOR THE NAVY AT THE TIME WAS THE M1911A1 .45 ACP PISTOL. SEE STORY.

NAT’L – OPINION – Biden’s Proposed Gun Tax Unconstitutional, Expert Says

DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE JOE BIDEN WANTS TO PUT IN PLACE A TAX ON CERTAIN GUNS THAT PEOPLE ALREADY OWN. ACCORDING TO ONE ANALYSIS, THE PLAN COULD COST CURRENT GUN OWNERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY A TOTAL OF UP TO $34 BILLION. BIDEN WANTS TO ENACT LEGISLATION TO BAN THE MANUFACTURE AND SALE OF “ASSAULT” WEAPONS AND HIGH-CAPACITY MAGAZINES. HE ALSO PLANS TO INCLUDE THOSE WEAPONS INTO THE NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT IN ORDER TO IMPOSE A $200 TAX FOR EACH GUN THAT SOMEONE POSSESSES ALREADY.

AR – OPINION – Practice makes perfect: Successful hunters know how their weapons perform

SOME HUNTERS INVEST A LOT OF TIME AND EFFORT IN SCOUTING FOR GAME, BUT THEY NEGLECT SIGHTING IN THEIR WEAPONS. YOUR WEAPON IS THE ONE ELEMENT OF THE HUNT THAT REALLY MATTERS, AND SUCCESS DEPENDS ENTIRELY ON YOUR PROFICIENCY WITH YOUR RIFLE, SHOTGUN OR BOW. MANY HUNTERS ASSUME THEIR RIFLES WILL BE ON TARGET WHEN THEY PULL THE TRIGGER ON SATURDAY, WHICH IS OPENING DAY OF THE MODERN GUN DEER SEASON. MOST OF THE TIME THEY ARE RIGHT. HOWEVER, MANY HUNTERS HAVEN'T FIRED THEIR RIFLES SINCE NOVEMBER 2019. A LOT CAN CHANGE IN A YEAR, ESPECIALLY IF YOU FINALLY USED UP THAT BOX OF CORE-LOKTS THAT YOU BOUGHT IN 2012.

WY – OPINION – The Second Amendment In A World Of President Biden, VP Harris, And Justice Barrett

IN THE PUBLIC POLICY DEBATE IN AMERICA TODAY, PROBABLY NO ISSUES ARE MORE CONTROVERSIAL THAN ABORTION AND GUN CONTROL. GENERALLY, VIEWS ON THE GUN ISSUE FOLLOW RED/BLUE LINES, WITH THE RED SIDE BELIEVING THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO DEFEND THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES AND BUSINESSES, WHILE BLUE FOLKS SEEM TO HATE AND FEAR GUNS MORE THAN THEY DO THE PEOPLE WHO PULLED THE TRIGGER.

CT – OPINION – Americans Vote Yes In A Landslide For Gun Sales

October’s firearm sales figures are in and if this is an indicator of how American feels about guns – folks, it’s a landslide.

NSSF released the adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figures for October. They aren’t record-breaking. They’re a record-shattering 1.76 million background checks completed for the sale of a firearm across the nation. That brings the annual total to 17.2 million, leaving the previous record in the rear-view mirror….

NAT’L – OPINION – Vote, Then Buy A Gun

THIS YEAR HAS BROUGHT AMERICA 200,000 DEATHS, THE LARGEST CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT WE’VE SEEN SINCE THE 1960S AND AN INESCAPABLE PARANOIA THAT POLITICAL VIOLENCE WAITS ON THE HORIZON. IT’S ALSO REMINDED A LOT OF LEFT-LEANING VOTERS — LIKE MYSELF — THAT THERE IS VALIDITY IN GUN OWNERSHIP. RIGHT NOW, THE WORST CASE SCENARIO WE FACE IS SOMETHING CLOSE TO A CIVIL-WAR. THIS IS NOT SIMPLY AN ALARMIST VIEWPOINT. SEE STORY.

CA – OPINION – The Beginning of the End for Gun Control

A WAVE OF VIOLENCE HAS SWEPT ACROSS AMERICA IN RECENT MONTHS. IN PORTLAND, A MOB DRAGGED A MAN TO THE GROUND AND BEAT HIM UNCONSCIOUS. IN KENOSHA, ANOTHER ONE SET A DUMPSTER ON FIRE AND ROLLED IT TOWARDS A GAS STATION. IN ST. LOUIS, YET ANOTHER BROKE INTO A GATED COMMUNITY AND ALLEGEDLY THREATENED TWO RESIDENTS WITH DEATH. INDEED, FOR THE NEARLY 10,000 PROTESTS THAT HAVE SPRUNG UP ACROSS AMERICA IN RECENT MONTHS, AROUND 570 OF THEM—OVER ONE IN TWENTY—HAVE DEVOLVED INTO VIOLENCE.

NAT’L – OPINION – The Myths Fueling Today’s Armed Right

THE 13 MEN CHARGED IN A PLOT TO KIDNAP MICHIGAN GOVERNOR GRETCHEN WHITMER CALLED THEMSELVES THE WOLVERINE WATCHMEN, A POSSIBLE REFERENCE TO THE WHITE SUPREMACIST VIGILANTE MILITIA IN THE HBO SERIES WATCHMEN. THE SUSPECTS BEGAN PLANNING THEIR KIDNAPPING THIS SUMMER, WITH LIVE FIRE EXERCISES AND EXPLOSIVES, ACCORDING TO THE CHARGES. NOT LONG BEFORE, GANGS OF ARMED MEN, MANY OF THEM CARRYING AR-15S, AND DEFIANTLY NOT WEARING FACEMASKS, PROTESTED INSIDE THE STATE CAPITOL IN LANSING AGAINST STRICT HEALTH MEASURES IMPOSED BY WHITMER. SIMILAR ARMED RIGHT-WING GROUPS ACROSS THE NATION ARE PLANNING TO PRIVATELY POLICE POLLING SITES ON NOVEMBER 3, AS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP CALLED FOR IN THE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE IN LATE SEPTEMBER.

NY – OPINION – U.S. Voters Agree On One Thing: They’d Feel Better Owning A Gun

NEW YORK TIMES October 27, 2020 – Like many Americans, two women a thousand miles apart are each anxious about the uncertain state of the nation. Their reasons are altogether different. But they have found common ground, and a sense of certainty, in a recent purchase: a gun.

Ann-Marie Saccurato traced her purchase to the night she was eating dinner…

NAT’L – OPINION  – Was Bloomberg Group Shamed Into Being (Sort of) Honest?

THE GUN-BAN PROPONENTS AT EVERYTOWN, NEW YORK BILLIONAIRE MICHAEL BLOOMBERG’S PERSONAL ANTI-GUN ADVOCACY APPARATUS, HAVE FINALLY BEGUN TALKING ABOUT GUNS IN THEIR POLITICAL ADS. IN AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER, WE POINTED OUT THAT EVERYTOWN SEEMED RATHER FOCUSED IN ITS POLITICAL MESSAGING ON THINGS LIKE HEALTH CARE, PHARMACEUTICALS, AND SCHOOL FUNDING. AN ODD COLLECTION OF TOPICS FOR AN ORGANIZATION THAT CLAIMS AS ITS PRIMARY SALES PITCH THAT IT “(HAS) A PLAN TO END GUN VIOLENCE.” AS WE POINTED OUT PREVIOUSLY, IT SEEMED LIKE BLOOMBERG’S GROUP CONCLUDED THAT GUN CONTROL ISN’T ACTUALLY POPULAR IN CRUCIAL SWING STATES AND DISTRICTS.

NAT’L – OPINION – Advice for Self-Defense Training During the Ammo Shortage

NO ONE HAS SEEN A RUN ON AMMUNITION LIKE THE ONE AT THE TIME OF THIS WRITING IN MY LIFETIME. THOSE OF US WHO HAVE BEEN IN THIS GAME REMEMBER 2013, THE LAST NOTABLE AMMO SHORTAGE. EVEN THAT PALED IN COMPARISON TO WHAT WE ARE CURRENTLY SEEING. AMMO IN THE MAIN CALIBERS IS SIMPLY SCARCE AND WHEN YOU FIND IT YOU WILL PAY VERY INFLATED PRICES FOR IT. THEREFORE, MOST OF US WILL BE DOING FAR LESS SHOOTING THAN USUAL. HOWEVER, THE REDUCTION IN LIVE-FIRE TRAINING SHOULD NOT PUT A DAMPER ON YOUR OVERALL PROGRESS IN SELF-DEFENSE TRAINING, BUT YOU MAY NEED TO CHANGE YOUR PRIORITIES.

OK – OPINION – TAKING AIM: The big handgun

“Being that this is a .44 magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well do ya, punk?”

With that quote, Clint Eastwood, aka Dirty Harry Callahan, almost single-handedly began the big handgun craze in America. That was in 1971, and the firearm was about the largest caliber around at the time….

NAT’L – OPINION – Amy Coney Barrett Nomination is Mitch McConnell’s Deadly Gift to an Ailing NRA

The National Rifle Association and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell both got serious about politics in 1977. That May, a coup at the NRA led to the installation of a new president who was determined to turn the organization from a sportsmen’s association into a political kingmaker. Five months later, McConnell won his first political contest, becoming the county executive of Louisville, Kentucky. Over the next 43 years, McConnell and the…

NAT’L – OPINION – The Complicated Truth About the Boogaloo Movement

Is America headed for a civil war? According to the followers of one fast-growing online subculture, increasing political polarization and instability will inevitably lead to a domestic armed conflict, which they refer to as Civil War 2: Electric Boogaloo. That’s a play on the title of a 1984 breakdancing film, from which the movement—known as “the Boogaloo,” “Big Igloo” or, sometimes, “Big Luau”—also derived its name. The Hawaiian shirt-wearing, gun-toting activists known…

CA – GUN OPINION – Guns and Control

"WE ARE NEITHER PRO-GUN NOR ANTI-GUN," PROCLAIMS THE GUN FACTS PROJECT, AN ORGANIZATION LAUNCHED BY SAN FRANCISCO WRITER GUY SMITH TWO DECADES AGO. "WE ARE PRO-MATH AND ANTI-BS." SMITH, A MARKETING CONSULTANT WITH A BACKGROUND IN QUANTITATIVE MANAGEMENT, STAYS TRUE TO THAT ETHOS IN GUNS AND CONTROL, WHICH SUMMARIZES REAMS OF RELEVANT DATA WHILE EVENHANDEDLY FAULTING ADVOCATES ON BOTH SIDES OF THE DEBATE FOR MANIPULATING NUMBERS TO FIT THEIR AGENDAS. THE BOOK NEVERTHELESS IS APT TO LEAVE OPEN-MINDED READERS MORE SKEPTICAL OF CONVENTIONAL RESPONSES TO GUN-RELATED DEATHS.

DC – OPINION – These 12 Incidents of Defensive Gun Use Underscore Importance of a Justice Barrett (VIDEO)

THE SUPREME COURT HAS SPENT OVER A DECADE QUIETLY ACQUIESCING TO GUN CONTROL ADVOCATES AT THE EXPENSE OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT. COMMENTATORS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE, HOWEVER, BELIEVE THAT MAY CHANGE SOON. IF JUDGE AMY CONEY BARRETT—PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S NOMINEE TO FILL THE SEAT OF THE LATE JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG—IS CONFIRMED TO THE SUPREME COURT, SHE IS LIKELY TO PROVIDE A VITAL FIFTH SURE VOTE IN DEFENSE OF THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS.

NAT’L – COURTS – Riots of 2020 have given the Second Amendment a boost

USATODAY.COM October 8, 2020 – Riots over George Floyd predictably resulted in billions in property damage, but it might be a surprise that they have strengthened the argument for gun rights.

This year’s riots, sparked by the death of George Floyd and continued in the names of several others, have destroyed billions of dollars in property, cost numerous people their lives and businesses and jobs, and…
