Jameson Parker: Are legislatures in Nevada and other states caving into outside influence?

Nevada, you’re too stupid to vote for yourself

The way some people see it, if you’re not a billionaire, you’re stupid and you need someone to make your decisions for you, to do things that are in your best interest whether you know it or not or like it or not.

Don't Think It Can't Happen

Don't Think It Can't Happen

By Don Bekeleski

We see moves all across our nation to ban guns. If it’s not one type of gun, it’s another. Maybe it’s registration they push for, saying that way we know where the guns are and if they are in good hands. What I would like to know is how they are going to stop criminals, when all they have is a list of law-abiding people who behave and a ban on law-abiding people buying guns for their protection.

I thought their point was to stop people from shooting up schools etc.
The only thing that will stop that is to arm the teachers!

Federal Judge Denies Stay Request In Gun Transfer Case

3/3/2015

BELLEVUE, WA – A federal court in Texas has denied a government motion for a 60-day stay in a case involving interstate handgun transfers in which the judge applied strict scrutiny to determine whether a ban on such transfers meets constitutional muster.
The case, known as Mance v. Holder, was filed by the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and is financially supported by the Second Amendment Foundation. It involves plaintiffs residing in Texas and the District of Columbia, and the ruling last month by U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor of the Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth Division, found that “the federal interstate handgun transfer ban is unconstitutional on its face.”
The government had asked for a 60-day stay in order to decide whether to file an appeal. But Judge O’Connor ruled today that a stay is not warranted because the government could offer no other reasons for its request other than the court’s “inherent authority to manage its docket.”
“We’re delighted that Judge O’Connor is not going to simply allow the government to stall this ruling,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “This case could have significant ramifications nationwide, and allowing a two-month stay while the government essentially claims it will be thinking about whether to appeal obviously was not warranted.”
CCRKBA and the individual plaintiffs are represented by Virginia attorney Alan Gura and Texas attorney William B. “Bill” Mateja of Fish & Richardson in Dallas.

Blind Man Shoots his Daughter in Ohio

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 18:12:17 +0000

TOLEDO, OH — Some sad news recently was released that a 3-year-old girl was recently shot and seriously injured by her own father. At about 1:45 p.m. last Saturday, Toledo police responded to a call about a little girl being shot at the 500 block of Prouty Avenue. Once officials had arrived at the location of the toddler identified as Kaylee Reyes, she was rushed to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center where she was treated for a gun shot wound to her stomach. The girl’s father/shooter, Michael C. Reyes, was booked into the Lucas County jail at roughly 7:30 p.m....

James Madison Tactical 80% Lower Receiver Review – Part 1

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 16:15:41 +0000

Whether you are an amateur gunsmith or you take comfort in the idea of having a firearm that is completely off the radar of socialist gun-grabbers at all levels of government, you have probably felt what I call the 80 percent itch: The craving to finish your own 80 percent lower. Now that the Great Obama Gun Scare is just about over, we have some time to take a look at how some of these 80 percent AR-15 lowers compare, rather than just buying whatever AR-15 lowers we can find.  In this article, we’re going to take a look at a...

Are Police Body Cameras Really the Answer?

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 20:49:37 +0000

Editor’s Note: We at GunNews.com would like to thank the Provo Police Department for their invaluable contribution to the writing of this article. Body cameras are a natural progression of technology and law enforcement. GoPros have been hugely popular in the civilian community to capture stunts, pranks and point of view (POV) action. This technology has come a long way since its introduction. Now, it is easy to hold or wear a small video camera capable of capturing images in stunning 1080p High Definition (HD). We as consumers have come to expect this high quality of imagery when watching movies, television,...

West Virginia and Kansas Vote on Permit­less Concealed Carry

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 19:10:16 +0000

Since the height of violent crime in this country (1991), 25 states have enacted “Right to Carry laws,” and the number of concealed carry permit holders skyrocketed to over 12 million. As a result, the violent crime rate has dropped 51%. Currently, the Federal Government is trying to enact a defacto firearms ban on the AR-­15 by outlawing the ammunition it takes, with the full knowledge (and FBI statistics in hand) that rifles were used in only 2.5% of gun related crimes, the AR-­15 being a small fraction of that. One can only guess their true motives. However, amidst secession chatter, two states in this...

Tactical Meets Practical – The Magpul MBUS Backup Iron Sight

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 20:01:42 +0000

In this modern world of picatinny rails, flashlights, lasers, bipods, faux bayonets, coffee makers, marital aids, and anything and everything else that has been designed to hang off the front of an AR, it is often tough to decide what will ACTUALLY be used and what will just make you look like a tool at the range. Here on Long Island, our ranges supply benches, and consequently, most shooters get married to them. I have always had a chuckle talking with the mall ninjas that show up — full camo, boots from the army navy store, 16″ AR, shooting a...
