DAY 11: WEAR YOUR N95 MASKS.

3

Political reasons probably account for why the Journal of the American Medical Association loves to print junk science when it comes to guns.  But when it comes to real medicine, they have some relevant and scientifically sound content. So, reading their very recent (as in last Thursday, March 26th) story about Turbulent Gas Clouds and Respiratory Pathogen Emissions should...

If you can’t Drink and Drive – you probably shouldn’t Drink and Carry a gun, either

If you can’t Drink and Drive – you probably shouldn’t Drink and Carry a gun, either

by Danica Navarro Drinking and driving don’t mix up well – just as good liquor and wine, for example. Moreover, the same applies to drinking and gun carrying as well! While DUI lawyers will always tell you not to drive with an open container in almost all states, they may not alert you that you shouldn’t be carrying a...

My trip to Chi-com Virus test station; Chinese flu causes sterility?

2

So this morning I visited the Bloomington Wuhan flu testing facility set up on the grounds of the Interstate Center on the west side of Bloomington.  If you’ve been to a McLean County Sportsmen’s dinner or the Bloomington Gun Show in recent years, you’ve been to this building. I arrived early in the day and found the place a...

DAY 10: Social Distancing Extended. Presumed positive ER patients sent home. NO Martial Law… yet. But roadblocks are popping up.

3

Greetings and salutations.  Heard from a nurse working the ER at OSF St. Francis in Bloomington Sunday. She says they are seeing one to three dozen people each shift that they strongly believe are CV positive.  But because those people don’t answer all of the screening questions “just right,” the medical staff doesn’t summon someone from the health department...

Day 8: Martial Law Coming to IL?

9

It’s Day 8ish of Illinois Governor JB Pritzker’s “Shelter in Place” order – or whatever you want to call it.  The number of cases is going up each day in Illinois (duh!).  Most of the new confirmed Chinese virus patients are in Cook County. The good news is that while the anti-gunners would love to advance their cause (like...

APRIL 2020 GUNNEWS:  Read this month’s issue of GunNews ONLINE here!

So, our volunteers who distribute GunNews each month are reporting that some locations are closed for the Chinese virus “shelter in place” that Illinois has implemented. With that in mind, and given how our members have received their copies in their mailboxes already (for the most part), the GSL Board has decided to release the April 2020 issue online....

DAY 7: Transformative Times

5

  ‘Rona update.   The chyron says it all. It’s looking more and more like the Chi-com flu isn’t as deadly as earlier predictions claimed.  This is good news for America.  And bad news for the sensationalist media, the opportunist Democrats and the Chi Com government. In other words, while Hillary Clinton is calling for a two month quarantine....

DAY 6:  Ammo approaching ‘Unobtanium’ in Chicagoland (except at MegaSports); More city PDs not responding to burglary, theft, assault calls

It’s been a busy time considering the much of the nation, including Illinois, has shut down. Here’s the latest from my world: Ammo becoming unobtainium. Illinois gun retailers are considered “essential” by the Illinois State Police and the governor.  And business has been brisk.  Very brisk. Especially ammo sales. I’m getting word that ammunition is becoming quite scarce, especially...

How Far Will Would-Be Tyrants Get Before America’s Gun Owners Say “Enough”

4

Politicians left and right both love to talk about how they support civil rights.  But when some get their hands on power, and an opportunity presents itself, they become heavy-handed, paternalistic little tyrants.  Yes, actions speak louder than words and some pols find that jackboots fit them quite well. Even before this new Chi-Com virus has spread in their...

REMINDER: Illinois State Police begin enforcement of handgun sales registry by dealers

A few months ago, we detailed how the Illinois State Police revealed in at least one “webinar” with licensed gun dealers that they intended to enforce the 2012 law “Section 24-4. Register of sales by dealer” under the Illinois Deadly Weapons statute. The law requires gun dealers to record the date of the sale along with the name, address,...

Empty Holsters: Don’t be one.

0

by Dominic Visione If you hang around cops enough (in a social setting, not while in custody) you may hear them refer to a colleague as an “empty holster.” Empty holsters are typically officers who are assigned to an administrative job, i.e, driving a desk instead of working patrol or investigations. Sometimes people drive a desk while they recover...
