Charlotte, NC Gun Show Shooting.

There are several reports coming out regarding a shooting at the Charlotte, NC gun show today. I was not in attendance, however I can only imagine that there was some horrible negligence on behalf of the shooter. Early reports yielded several different stories regarding exactly what happened, but it now appears that a vendor entered the show with a round in the pipe, and in the process of clearing the weapon at a later time, …

New York Senate Bill 7828

The wonderful, gun-unfriendly peoples republic of New York has introduced a senate bill that would limit law abiding citizens from purchasing more than 500 rounds of ammunition in a 30 day period. This legislation has been introduced by NY senators after the mass shooting in Colorado. What these legislators fail to recognize is that the shooting in CO would NOT have been prevented by this legislation. All this bill would do if passed is restrict …

Travis Haley’s facebook status after the Aurora, CO tragedy.

Below is an excerpt from Travis Haley’s facebook status after the Aurora, CO mass shooting: Fact: The majority of concealed carry and open carry armed citizens are a liability. Just because you go through a 1 day course doesn’t not mean that you can problem solve an armored active shooter in a never expected, dark, tear gassed disruptive environment with screaming people while stepping over dead bodies. You must understand advanced applications under stress. Just …

The Colorado tragedy, and the drumbeat for gun control.

First things first, I feel awful for those affected by this shooting. I cannot imagine how terrible it must feel to lose a loved one to a crazy person. The newest news reports are reporting that this subject was dressed as the Joker character from Batman, and told authorities that he was in fact the Joker. Obviously this person has some sort of mental issue going on, and that in my opinion must be what …

“Gunshow Loophole” Rant.

Anybody ever heard the media talk about the “gunshow loophole” when pushing a gun control agenda? I’m here to tell you that there is no such thing as a gunshow loophole. When one goes to a gunshow, and buys a firearm from a federally licensed dealer, he must pass the same instant background check that he would have to pass if he walked into a regular gun store. This is the case in all 50 …

North Carolina and the “State of Emergency” gun ban.

A few months ago, a federal court tossed out an NC state law that gave the Governor the right to restrict the transportation of firearms during a state of emergency. This was a particularly large thorn in the side of gun owners in the state, as many feel like I do, that during an emergency is probably the time that I will need my firearm the most. As we rolled through hurricane season the the …

Brian Aitken Conviction Overturned!

Brian Aitken was arrested in New Jersey a few years back for being in possession of legally owned firearms, and hollow point ammo. Brian ended up being sentenced to seven years in prison under New Jersey’s ludicrous gun laws for being in possession of his own, legally owned firearms. Yes, I typed that correctly. Here it is again : Brian was sentenced to seven years in prison under New Jersey’s ludicrous gun laws for being …

Victory for Gun Owners in NC Emergency Powers Gun Ban!

In NC, we have been unable to carry our legal firearms when a State of Emergency has been declared by the Governor. This was ridiculous, as most of the time, the SOE is declared for a very small part of the state, and the rest of us were left to suffer. It looks like this will change! Check out the link below. I haven’t read the entire press release yet, so I’ll keep this short, …

Is every elected official from New York a complete idiot?

The NRA news team interviewed Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel from NY, who is leading the way on the NY microstamping bill. “…sometimes the responsible people, the law abiding people, have to give up some of their liberty to make sure for the public safety of all.” Microstamping is the rediculous idea of having a firearm stamp a code onto the brass when it is fired, to somehow try to link the fired brass to the firearm …
