GW: This bogus question reminds me of a time in the 1980s when Michiganders had to answer this question posed by gun boards making decisions relative to requests to carry concealed pistols. We had to prove need. Just being prepared to defend yourself was not a good-enough answer. If you didn’t know “someone” (in power), you didn’t get a permit to carry. Period. Now that all states are “shall issue”- based on the clear intent of the Second Amendment – we no longer have to explain why we want “insurance”. But the power mongers are still out there and always will be.
Watch this video from a Navy Seal and see what points he makes in answer to the lameness of the left.
Black Creek, GA –– Daniel Defense, engineer and manufacturer of the world’s finest firearms and accessories, has released a new .308 rifle designed specifically for North American hunters. The Daniel Defense Ambush .308 in Kryptek Highlander is an accurate, hard-hitting platform engineered from the ground up to take down any North American big-game animal. And it’s quickly setting a new benchmark for what a hunting rifle should be.At the rifle’s core is a free-floating, 18″ Cold Hammer Forged barrel, which comes standard with Daniel Defense’s Superior Suppression Device Extended, for reduced muzzle-flash. This high-quality barrel connects directly to the upper receiver and free-floating KeyMod handguard with a robust 4-Bolt Connection System with patent pending barrel extension, resulting in increased stability, better accuracy, and reduced weight. The Ambush .308 is fed via an optimized bolt carrier group featuring a redesigned geometry and a new extremely slick, low-friction coating that ensure smooth, reliable feeding under most any circumstances.
Ambidextrous controls make operating the rifle—including dropping the magazine, releasing the bolt, and switching the safety selector—intuitive and comfortable for right- and left-handed shooters. The charging handle is also ambidextrous, as well as user-configurable, and can be set up on either side with a larger or smaller handle in order to accommodate magnified optics or iron sights for a snag-free setup. Finally, to help hunters deliver on-target shots to bring down their prey, the Ambush .308 has a crisp 2-Stage Geissele Super Semi-Automatic (SSA®) Trigger that provides a smooth, precise trigger pull every time.

BELLEVUE, WA – While Capitol Hill Democrats staged a symbolic “sit-in” today in the House chambers to demand action on new gun restrictions, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said these lawmakers clearly define by their actions how far the party has strayed from the ideals of liberty their predecessors stood for.
“Democrats in the 1960s used sit-ins to expand Constitutional rights,” CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb recalled. “But today, they are using a sit-in to restrict those same civil rights.”
While Democrats professed to be interested in curbing gun-related violence, he said, their true motives are aimed more at eroding not only firearms rights, but the right of due process. Clearly, Gottlieb asserted, the sit-in is a carefully-choreographed attempt to fool the public into believing that it is right to pass legislation to strip someone of their rights without any criminal charge, much less a conviction, by placing them on a secret “watch list” without benefit of due process.

Fountain Valley, CA — Recently, a suppressor manufacturer released a video showing what they claimed to be a “government agency test,” in which their suppressor outperformed the SureFire SOCOM556-RC suppressor. In response to this so-called “government agency test” video, SureFire would like to make clear to the public that the test in this competitor’s video was not a test conducted by SOCOM or any other government agency. The test was conducted in-house by the manufacturer of the competing suppressor, with a few members of the Military and Government in attendance. Additionally, the exact opposite results were obtained in actual SOCOM testing in which the competitor’s suppressor was evaluated alongside a SureFire SOCOM556-RC. In this test, the competitor’s suppressor failed, whereas the SureFire suppressor completed the test without incident or causing malfunctions of the MK18. Read more

A sling frees up the hands while keeping the equipped long gun within reach at all times, helping the user retain their firearm when climbing, navigating through various obstacles, and while interacting with others. There are a variety of ways to attach and wear a sling so why not extend that versatility to your sling swivel adaptor. UTG PRO has just released two excellent QD sling swivel adaptors, specifically, one for the M-LOK™ and Keymod attachment systems.Made right here in the USA, they are extremely lightweight, low profile in size, and are milled out of 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum with a matte black hard coat anodize or Cerakote™ ceramic firearms finish.

Black Creek, GA – Daniel Defense—engineer and manufacture of the world’s finest firearms, precision rail systems, and accessories— Has announced it will no longer sell firearms to Academy Sports due to their decision to remove MSR’s from their website and in-store displays.
Letter to all Daniel Defense Distributors:
“As you know we take our partnership with our stocking retailers very seriously. We are committed to serving and supplying them at the highest level and expect our retailers to have that same level of commitment to our brand and our industry. Unfortunately, Academy Sports has made a corporate decision, in the wake of the recent terrorist attack, to remove all MSRs from their website and in-store displays. Academy Sports has communicated that they intend to continue to sell the MSR category of firearms without displaying or advertising them publicly. As a prominent MSR brand, Daniel Defense cannot support decisions that are completely contrary to the values of our company and industry. Therefore, as of today, June 16th, I request that you place Academy Sports on a Do Not Sell list for all Daniel Defense products and terminate any shipments to their stores or distribution centers. It is unfortunate that we have to make this decision, but it is clearly the right thing to do for our brand, our industry and our constitutional right. Thank you for your support.”
