The Legend of the Gold Star   

Weekend, May 27-29, 2017 — As we approach another Memorial Day it is fitting that we not only remember those who gave themselves in defense of our country and all Americans but in honor of the many mothers whose sons left home never to return.

From the Los Angeles Times: During World War I, a practice developed across the country: Families displayed flags featuring a blue star, a sign that a family…

You Could Call It Target Practice

Friday, May 26, 2017 — What police did on December 2, 2015, in San Bernardino could be called target practice. They riddled two terrorist bodies with 40 rounds.  40!  Out  of 440!  It’s obvious that some range time should be considered for California’s Blue Squad. Okay, so we’re being sarcastic. But they showed no mercy to the Christmas party killers of 14 company employees with another 22 wounded. They didn’t…

Concealed Carry Reciprocity May Be Gun Control’s Undoing

Thursday, May 25, 2017 — There is hope that the gun rights earthquake known as the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 (CCRA), currently rumbling underneath the floors of the United States Capitol building, will eventually spurt enough political lava to chase away all the gun control bugaboos that have annoyed legally compliant California gun owners for years. The Golden State has in recent times become the masterful playmaker of…

The Continuing Cascade of Blaming Guns For Everything Including Drugs

Wednesday, May 24, 2017 — The manifesto of Everytown For Gun Safety In America, Mike Bloomberg’s anchor for his gun control campaigns and editorial vitriol, as seen here, dances around the objective that to pursue management of guns as the solution to violent crime focuses on just one thing:  removing guns from everyone.  Problem is that to do so emphasizes actions that affect not just criminals but honest…

More Gun Laws Are Killing More People

Tuesday, May 23, 2017 — Killers always have incentives to kill. Gun owners always have incentives to live. Where, then, do lawmakers get the incentives to let killers continue to kill and keep gun owners from defending themselves and others?  What seems obvious to constituents and oblivious to legislators is that lawmakers continue to show their ignorance with tons of apathy because there’s no money to be made in legislative…

When Guns and Ammo Don’t Mix, Maybe It’s The Ammo

Monday, May 22, 2017 — In a story that’s anywhere from nearly four days to four years old SIG Sauer has responded to a $2.5 million lawsuit from the New Jersey State Police who say they want their money back. It all began around the turn of the century when the NJSP wanted to switch from their duty-issued HK P7M8 pistols after years of use to the newer Smith &…

Guns:  An Industry in Transition

Weekend, May 20-21, 2017 — Amid the clatter of The Great Gun Debate, if there ever was one, the nation’s establishment screams with headlines: With Obama Gone The Gun Industry SuffersGuns Now Found At Fire Sale Prices.  Big Name Gun Makers Like Colt and Remington Lay Off Hundreds.  Gun Control Advocates Finally Get Their Victories However Small. It’s not like we haven’t heard it before:…

The Smoke and Mirrors Fraud of Gun Control

Friday, May 19, 2017 — The gun grabbers are getting restless. Feeling that the chips are stacked against them and they’ve run out of ideas to keep Illinois citizens defenseless from criminals and Chicago gangbangers, they’ve now turned towards fines and fees for Prairie State gun dealers that are sure to put many of those dealers out of business. In a game of Reverse, a popular board game for digital devices…

The Spray Can is the Growing Symbol of Factless-based Journalism

Thursday, May 18, 2017  — Wanna get your message out quickly to a mindless majority? Try spray can journalism. It’s the new tool of America’s Misinformation Streaming Media (MSM, for short). So, please pardon the intrusion, but I ran across a letter from a reader of the Los Angeles Times yesterday that makes the only point necessary about self-protection and home defense. I wanted to share it with our GunProPlus…

330 Million Guns In America and National Reciprocity, Suppressors Endanger Police Officers??!!

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 — “You gotta be kiddin’ me” comes immediately to mind. And cops the nation over are giggling in their Sam Browne’s. Gabby, bless her Giffords soul, has enlisted mostly appointed – not elected – police officials in liberal cities and states as gun control co-conspirators using the National Reciprocity bill, which has yet to see serious Congressional discussion , as the cornerstone of her latest campaign…

Leaks: The Anti-gun Media Balloon Is Slowly But Surely Running Out Of Air

Tuesday, May 16, 2017 — An email we received late Sunday expressed concern over an article in the blog, Counterpunch, written by anti-gun professor Jacob Dorman that begins like this: In light of the state of Kansas’ apparent determination to allow the concealed carry of firearms in the classrooms of the University of Kansas, I am writing to tender my resignation effective two weeks from today as an associate professor…

Deadly Force: The Vascular Neck Restraint or a Stun Gun?

Monday, May 15, 2017 — It is always unfortunate when an arrest is attempted on a subject with obvious mental impairments that could be the effects of brain dysfunction, excessive alcohol consumption or opiate overdose. Cops aren’t psychiatrists and in a moment of extreme and unknown threat, their training kicks in and conjecture turns to immediate action, i.e., incapacitate the threat. Unless the situation requires gun use, other options are available. One…

Talkin’ Spring Turkey One More Time

Weekend, May 13-14, 2017 — A dilemma: What to do when you run out of cranberry sauce? If that’s all you have to worry about, you’re an incorrigible gobbler addict. And that’s where we come in  We know you’ve seen turkey hunting many times before. And maybe you learned something from the gobbler hunters in previous video features. But once many early season hunters have turned their thoughts to predators…

If It Looks Like a Duck…: Silencers Are Making a Noisy Entry Into the Gun Culture

Friday, May 12, 2017 — When something goes BANG! — a gun, for instance — it usually gets everyone’s attention. To that end, suppressors are often thought of as decibel-level sound containment.  In such definition, technology has entered the world of noise cancelling (NC). For instance, we take pleasure in our pair of NC headphones, an invaluable instrument for suppressing irritating noise from airliner engines while listening to some great jazz during a flight…

Replacing Jim Comey With The FBI’s String Quartet + One

Thursday, May 11, 2017 — Much can be said about former FBI head, James Comey, but that’s now old news. What’s new are four candidates being considered as Comey’s replacement. Of the quartet of string-‘em-up candidates only one, in our opinion (which counts for nothing, of course), rates highest on the charts. First, Ray Kelly, NYC Police Commissioner, is the author of the Big Apple’s Stop-and-Frisk operation which enabled the city…

Gramophone, Telegram, Instagram: Going Nowhere Fast

Wednesday, May 10, 2017 — It is the communication instrument of our time. It’s also a plague on yesteryear’s population.  Merriam-Webster’s defines “plague” as “a disastrous evil or affliction.” Nothing could be closer to the truth. We’re pondering, of course, about social media. It is the governmental mandate that goes back to the future. It is by definition shared information and where it takes us is nowhere in a hurry. If…

Guns. They’re Why Democrats Keep Losing

Tuesday, May 09, 2017 — What we’ve long suspected the Washington Post has finally confirmed. Gun owners are significantly and politically overpowering.  Just ask Hillary. From the WaPo August 15, 2016: “On her campaign website, Clinton calls for more comprehensive background checks, repealing the gun industry’s immunity from lawsuits for negligence, revoking the licenses of gun dealers who knowingly supply weapons to straw purchasers and gun traffickers, and toughening laws and regulations to…

Toys Are Giving Guns – and Gun Owners – a Bad Name

Monday, May 08, 2017 — It’s no longer the ‘40s, 50s, the 60s, or even the 70s and 80s when guns could be stored exposed in a pickup truck gun rack or carried openly into a grocery store without alarm. In the contemporary 21st Century, toy guns – some of them, at least –  have become a death wish. The string of child deaths that continue to plague the nation’s…
