  1. https://freebeacon.com/issues/gun-confiscation-plan-backed-by-va-gov-defeated-in-house-awaits-vote-in-senate/ "A plan to ban the sale and possession of certain kinds of firearms and ammunition magazines backed by Virginia governor Ralph Northam (D) failed a vote in a house subcommittee on Thursday but awaits action in the state senate. By a vote of 4 to 1, Delegate Kathy Tran's (D) HB 2492 failed to pass out of the committee. That effectively kills the proposal within the House of Delegates. However, an identical Senate bill, Senator Adam Ebbin's SB 1748, is awaiting a vote in the Committee for Courts of Justice."
  2. http://concealednation.org/2018/11/firearm-review-springfield-armory-range-officer-elite-operator-10mm/ "The Springfield Armory RO & reg; Elite series ups the ante in power with the introduction of its newest model in 10mm. The RO Elite features premium upgrades in the popular 10mm caliber for shooters interested in competition, hunting or personal defense. It features a 5-inch forged match grade stainless steel barrel with a fully supported chamber and a forged steel frame and slide that are precision-fit for fluid-smooth function. Coated in Black-T®, this highly corrosion resistant self-lubricating treatment is built to withstand the most punishing conditions, and is the same treatment specified on Springfield Armory 1911s built for the FBI’s SWAT and Hostage Rescue Teams. Equipped with an 18.5 lb. recoil spring, the RO Elite 10mm is well-balanced and soft shooting, taming the power of the hottest 10mm loads. A Picatinny rail allows operators to attach accessories, and slanted serrations on the front and the rear of the slide encourage easy manipulation of the slide."
  3. https://freebeacon.com/issues/va-governors-gun-confiscation-proposal-could-affect-millions-of-residents/ "The legislative proposals being discussed would put most firearms beyond the reach of law-abiding Virginians who choose the firearms of their choice to protect themselves, hunt, and practice recreational target shooting," said Lawrence G. Keane, the group's general counsel. "That could potentially impact the availability of tens of millions of firearms." "The governor's office did not respond to multiple requests for more details on his proposed ban and confiscation plan or answer questions on how such a plan would be enforced. Republican leadership of Virginia's legislature indicated they would oppose Northam's gun-control push. "The @vahousegop will steadfastly fight to defend the Second Amendment rights of law abiding citizens from far-left gun control proposals this session," Kirk Cox, the Republican speaker of Virginia's House of Delegates, said on Twitter last week. Republicans currently control both the Virginia Senate and House of Delegates but only by the slimmest of margins: one vote in the house and two in the senate." They basically, did-it to themselves by voting: Donk!

When I heard that there were two new GLOCK pistols coming my way, my first thought was “must be a new texturing pattern on the frame” or “maybe there’s another pistol with forward cocking serrations on the slide.” So, when I opened up and found these two skinny pistols in there, I was intrigued to say the least."

We've made it very clear that the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) has failed time and time again because states fail to report 100 percent of their criminal convictions to the FBI. Expanding a failed system isn't going to suddenly make it work better. If anything, it's just going to expand its failure. In a rather shocking turn of events, the super leftist news outlet Vox admitted universal background checks are a failure...and Democrats need to move on."

    New Benchmade Adamas On The Way!

    Basically, I had some Xmas cash. Then opportunity, and price came together. I've been wanting one of these for over a year now. This one is really a 'fistful of steel', meant for heavy-duty use. Thanks, for looking.
  7. https://dailycaller.com/2019/01/11/firearms-industry-opposes-feinstein-assault-weapons-ban/ “It is disappointing to see politicians continue to pursue a failed policy agenda that has proven ineffective in improving public safety and will deny law-abiding citizens their Constitutional right,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President of Government and Public Affairs and General Counsel. “Despite what proponents may say, the record shows that Sen. Feinstein’s original 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban had no demonstrable impact on reducing crime and this one would be equally ineffective.” Since the original ban, firearms ownership has increased while the criminal misuse of firearms has steadily dropped. FBI crime statistics demonstrate there is no justification for banning modern sporting rifles."

    New Benchmade Adamas On The Way!

    It landed today. After initial inspection, I formated it for my mode of carry. Then added a lanyard. All the superlatives about this knife are true! Really solid build, and a blade, that really kicks-out with authority. Sorry about the image SNAFU. I wanted to take some better snaps of the new blade. Check these out.
  9. https://freebeacon.com/issues/republicans-gun-rights-groups-vow-to-fight-va-govs-gun-control-proposals/ 'None of the gun bills that Governor Northam is pushing will make Virginians any safer' "The NRA, whose headquarters is based in Virginia, said Northam's proposals were the result of his political ambitions rather than a desire to deal with violent crime. "Virginians want elected officials to address the root causes of violent crime and find solutions that will save lives instead of pursuing gun-control policies that criminals will not follow and will make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves," Catherine Mortensen, spokesperson for the NRA's Institute of Legislative Action, told the Free Beacon. "This latest gun-control agenda is being pushed by politicians who would rather score political points than tackle the tough issues related to violent crime."

He’s preparing to leave his post, faced with a likely removal from office by newly sworn-in Gov. Ron DeSantis. He also faces possible suspension for his response to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting last February." Stupid, dunce! Should have been gone a year ago.

    New Benchmade Adamas On The Way!

    This will be my first Benchmade knife, imagine that! So I opted for a heavy-duty full-auto blade like the Adamas. Benchmade has recently raised the price by at least twenty-dollars on their entire stable of knives. I searched around, and found one at Cowboy Safes in Texas, for the old-price, plus a 5% site discount. If any of you are interested; they have one left for $222 USD, which is what I paid. These are now $242.00 everywhere else. I can't wait to EDC this bad-daddy! Awww yeah!!! https://www.cowboysafes.com/collections/knives-collection/products/benchmade-sibert-auto-bm-2750bksn
  13. https://townhall.com/columnists/karenkataline/2019/01/07/danger-dyslexia-toy-guns-are-dangerous-open-borders-are-not-n2538597 "For the third year in a row, Hempstead, New York sponsored a "Toy Gun Buyback” that encouraged kids to give up their toy guns in exchange for toys which Leftists deem to be “safer.” In the spirit of equality some children were given a toy gun so they could trade it in for a “safe” toy. Hempstead Village Trustee LaMont Johnson said, “The purpose is to offer a safe alternative to toy guns. We don't want the kids playing with guns. Guns are dangerous.” Mayor Don Ryan of Hempstead Village agreed, “Saying no to guns is important, even toy guns.”

And she's at it again. This time though, she's attempting to make the argument that gun control groups are responsible for the drop in accidental shooting deaths. There's just one problem though: the firearms industry has invested heavily in gun safety initiatives."
