Got ammo? That’s a question you may be asking yourself at your local Wally World or neighborhood gun store here soon. GSL president John Boch told members that ammunition supplies were expected to begin to dry up this fall because of a powder shortage. Now we have President Obama adding his two Kenyan shillings to the mix.  He imposed...

BLOOMBERG FAILS AGAIN:  Bloomberg’s latest ad fail; portrays women as weak and helpless

A woman profiled in Glock’s ad (above) versus a woman profiled in Bloomberg’s ad (below). Which do you want to be, ladies?  Helpless, dependent upon others and pleading for your life in Bloomberg’s world, or confident and in control as a gun owner? It’s your choice, Mr. and Mrs. America.   So, Michael Bloomberg has spent $50 million plus...

A carry permit holder told police he observed an armed robbery in progress inside an AT&T location (pictured above) and remained outside to prevent any other innocents from entering the store.

GOOD NEWS, WE THINK:  Rauner up 14-points over “Clueless” Quinn in IL Governor’s race

Bruce Rauner, the billionaire who is a big question mark on guns, is up 14-points over Illinois’ bumbling Governor Patrick Quinn in a poll taken July 28th. We say “good news, we think” because Bruce Rauner hasn’t reached out to any of the major gun groups in Illinois, nor has he completed and returned the NRA questionnaire sent to...

EPIC FAIL:  Thugs storm house, failing to notice sticker on car out front

  A home invasion trio became a duo Sunday shortly after lunchtime in Indianapolis after storming a near northside home. Outside the home was an SUV with a subtle “Molon Labe” sticker. Inside the home were a couple of guys.  With guns.  And the knowledge, skills and attitudes to employ them to repel violent attack. The trio stormed the...

THANKS, RAHM:  Kids learn to shoot at NRA camp with ammo Chicago bought

Pity the do-gooders in Chicago who dislike guns so viscerally. They hold gun buy-backs, trading perfectly good taxpayer money for mostly non-functioning junk at Chicago’s (in)famous gun buybacks. In 2012, Guns Save Life took up 65 clunkers to trade for perfectly good cash.  Some of our guns were fire-damaged, others were just pre-1898 rust-ruined barreled-actions and some were literally...

LEWD, NOT LASCIVIOUS:  Moms Demand Action TOPLESS counter-demonstration to Texas open carry walk

HISTORIC:  Federal District Court strikes DC’s handgun ban

D.C. STUNNER:  Police chief orders officers to allow carry

Emily Miller, an editor with the Washington Times and award-winning journalist, tweets a stunning development in D.C. following the appellate court ruling invalidating the District’s ban on carrying firearms outside the home. If this had happened on an April 1st in the past, we would all agree it was a joke. It’s amazing how times are change for gun...

PA hospital killer triggered by ‘NO GUNS” signage, intended to keep killing; Doc to keep his job

One reason “NO GUNS” signage is a bad idea that we hadn’t considered…  We knew that they attract bad people, but had not considered they might *trigger* a spree attack. Well, bet you haven’t seen much of this in the mainstream media outside of Philadelphia: (Philadelphia Daily News) – NOTHING WAS GOING to stop Richard Plotts from carrying a...

Good guys with guns save lives and deter criminal activity.  We all know it to be true. It was out for all to see in Indianapolis a few weeks ago as 75,000 National Rifle Association members descended on that city for the NRA’s convention and annual meetings.  Many, if not most of those folks were legally armed.  Not surprisingly,...
