New Springfield XDE: Stupid in all the wrong places.

So news of the new  Springfield XDE broke today. Now, I will preface this by saying that I have not shot the Springfield  XDE yet, I have not even held this pistol, but here are my thoughts… Why in the world would they make the new Springfield XDE with an exposed external hammer? Bad, bad […]

Pro Tip: You better put the Velcro back on your pistol brace.

Why ‘national reciprocity’ for guns is immaterial

Over the weekend, I was perusing the online NRA-ILA newsletter. If you are gun enthusiast, own and/or carry a weapon, or merely a supporter of the Second Amendment and gun rights, I would suggest you sign up for the newsletter. Most articles interest me, but one in particular seemed intriguing. It is entitled, “5 reasons […]

“Weapons of war” are now no longer protected by the constitution…

As pointed out by The Gun Feed, a very good illustration of how out of touch with basic law our courts have now become. According to the 4th Circuit ruling, we are now no longer allowed to own these most basic of firearms… ‘Put simply, we have no power to extend Second Amendment protection to […]

Paul Harvey: So God picked Donald Trump…

Because of this…   We now have Donald Trump… We honestly don’t know what we will get with him yet… but hopefully he will live up to what he is selling us. There is no doubt in my mind that he will certainly be better than the death blow that would have been Hillary.

The National PTA is still Anti-gun, Anti-hunting, Anti-shooting sports…

This was my write up from a while back. Well, it looks like The national PTA is still openly hostile to the 2nd Amendment. They are also openly advocating for gun bans.
