Re: CA AB962 is now dead

This appears to be a major victory. Still, we should remain ever vigilant against those who would trample our rights.

Re: Firearms Freedom Acts

User 42: The real question is how many states have to pass the same legislation before the fed can't argue with it anymore. I think if we had every state aside from California and New York and such, could they really try to tell everyone else no? This is a really interesting point. We've certainly s...

Re: Firearms Freedom Acts

This is a really cool concept that emphasizes the reserved powers (Tenth Amendment) over the Commerce Clause. The problem is that there is significant judicial precedent that broadly interprets the Commerce Clause in ways that would scare most Americans.

Yeah...I thought about picking up more fun sticks for the G19, but instead ordered some of the 30 rounders for the FsN...something to do on a snow day in the ATL.

Not surprisingly, the usual MSM fallacies at play here--perhaps if we outlaw umbrellas, we won't have to worry about rain any more. Some of the most obvious fallacies that we've recently seen include: An automatic weapon was involved (they apparently don't know what this means) The accused is a righ...

Re: Congresswoman, 6 Others, Killed By Gunman

What did he use for the shooting? 19 injured in short order? An eyewitness on Fox News said it was a "black gun". I can only think of one black gun (handgun) with at least 19 rounds in one clip Admittedly, I'm speculating somewhat here.

Re: Bought some true blue powder, looking for load info

Since one of the most common loads with true blue is the 40gr Hornady Vmax, it bears reminding (it's been said here before) that the OAL values for this load in the Lyman Reloading Guide (49th edition) are incorrect.
