Trump Admin Seeks To Strip BATF of Alcohol & Tobacco Enforcement

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ days look numbered.  Once more, under its 2020 budget proposal, the Trump administration seeks to transfer the 'alcohol' and 'tobacco' duties from the BATF.  The U.S. Treasury Department would take those duties if the administration gets its way. Today's BATF would also get a new name: Bureau of Arson, Explosives and Firearms....

After Nationwide Power Cuts and Looting, Venezuelans Regret Giving Up Their Guns Even More

Before Hugo Chavez took a dirt nap, he enacted the Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law.  It banned everyday Venezuelans from owning guns or ammunition, and confiscated those that were privately owned. More recently, as the inevitable effects of Bolivarian socialism have wrecked their once-prosperous country, Venezuelans have wished they had those firearms back to resist government tyranny....

Nye County NV Sheriff Tells Governor to Pound Sand Over Latest Gun Control Edict

Nye County, Nevada Sheriff Sharon Wehrly doesn't believe that the state can ban the sale of firearms between residents. In recent days, she announced she will not enforce Nevada's new "universal background check" law, which really means a ban on the selling of guns between citizens. That, of course, has sent Nevada's Democrats into a bottom-lip quivering, foot-stamping, pearl-clutching...

Gun Review:  GLOCK G48 Single-Stack 9mm

GLOCK introduced the new Slimline model G48 earlier this year and showed it off at the SHOT Show. It's actually a longer-slide version of their new G43X pistol. Since it's the same size, some describe the G48 as a hybrid between the GLOCK G43X and the GLOCK 19. I would describe it as a two-tone, single-stack G19 pistol. The...
