Unarmed Good Samaritan Becomes Another Victim

They say that no good deed goes unpunished, a lesson that 25 year old Tulane medical student and Good Samaritan, Peter Gold, recently found out when he stopped 21 year old Euric Cain from abducting a drunk woman from the streets of New Orleans.

14 Steps To Help Your Survival On the Upcoming Disaster

We all like to think we can “rough” it when the $h!+ hits the fan and that we are conditioned to be Mountain Men and Women if the times call for it.  But I have to question, have you made any plans or contingencies beyond a bug out bag and a few weeks of food? See, there is more to surviving a disaster than being a badass.  It takes some thought and preparation to not only survive but thrive in face of a life changing disaster. For instance, Iran will soon have a working nuclear bomb thanks to President Obama.  For a quick moment Iran was all nicey nice with the US and before the spittle was dry on the Ayatollah’s boots from all the licking Obama was doing, the Iranians once again started the “death to America” rhetoric. Our good friend and radio host Tamara Jackson, recently did a show...

Oregon Gun Grabbers Love a Bill that Only Infringes on Law-Abiding Oregonians

I love living in Pennsylvania. Even when my fellow Keystone Staters crap the bed and elect us a corrupt gun grabbing AG and a self professed anti gun Governor, for the most part PA comes through it on the right side of sings. The same cannot be said for my friend Tami Jackson and her home state of Oregon.  Not only are the politicians out there foaming at the mouth to infringe upon the peoples right to keep and bear arms but the people themselves are complicit in the injustice. From Tami’s latest article on the matter at Savingourfuture.com: Friends across the nation often ask me “How can you, a social and fiscal conservative, live in that dark blue state?” Simple: I was born in Salem, raised, for the most part, in Bend, Oregon, and this beautiful state is my home. By county and acres, Oregon remains mostly a...

Follow the Rules or You’ll Get Your Finger Shot Off…or Worse (Video)

How difficult is it…REALLY…to follow Colonel Jeff Coopers 4 simple rules to firearm safety? They’ve been around for DECADES so they should be ingrained in every gun owner and should be instilled in new gun owners before they ever pick up their first firearm. The rules that go like this: All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is unloaded, see Rule 1.) Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target. This is the Golden Rule. Its violation is directly responsible for about 60 percent of inadvertent discharges. Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you have not positively identified. Nearly every negligent discharge that I have ever heard of is...

Pro Abortion Radical Wants To Ensure Children Aren’t Protected Even After Birth

As if anyone really needed more evidence that gun control zealots don’t give a damn about safety or preventing violence but really just want to CONTROL people, I give you Anna Eskamani.  Eskamani is a your general all around liberal true believer. A self proclaimed, “Organizer, Writer and Feminist”, Eskamani has a extensive history of fighting for abortions being the Regional Manager for Florida Planned Parenthood PAC, the Director of External Affairs for Greater Orlando Planned Parenthood and the former Young Leaders Advisory Council Leadership Chair for Planned Parenthood Federation of America.  Suffice it to say that Anna Eskamani believes in abortion. Coincidentally enough, since Ms Eskamani doesn’t believe in protecting the life of unborn children viewpoint has recently evolved to ensuring that children who are born also are denied protection. I’m referring to a recent article that Eskamani penned for the Central Florida Future. In it Eskamani vehemently comes out...

PA Sheriff Offers FREE Optional Firearm Training Class

When it comes to training I find that the majority of gun owners believe in it.  I also find that, like myself, they don’t believe that it should be mandatory.  The First Amendment doesn’t require you to do research into what you are spouting off about, you don’t have to actually KNOW the issues in order to vote etc.  That doesn’t mean you SHOULDN’T, just that the government doesn’t and shouldn’t dictate the terms of which you can exercise your rights. In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania we have no requirements of training in order to purchase or to carry a firearm.  Outside of a background check we have unfettered access to purchasing firearms and for $20 and another background check we can carry concealed.  And we can save the $20 and hassle if we carry openly as that is free so long as we aren’t otherwise prohibited. Training on...

Ferguson Cop tells citizens: Arm up, we can’t protect you

As we wait for the grand jury’s decision in the case of the shooting of convenience store strong arm robber, Mike Brown, local police are doling out some common sense to the residents for  the potential fallout of the decision.  In the Cop Talk forum of voactiv.com, an officer from Ferguson had some sobering and frank advice to give to the residents of Ferguson. From Liberty Unyielding: According to Vocativ’s latest update, the “cop talk” forum, where a user who posts as a local policeman gave the warning, was taken offline on Monday evening. But before the site was taken down, Vocativ copied this from it: Under the name “A Concerned Cop,” one person shared a warning: “If you do not have a gun, get one and get one soon. We will not be able to protect you or your family. It will be your responsibility to protect them. Our gutless...

Ferguson Residents Turn To The 2nd Amendment To Protect Themselves

As was the intent of the Founding Fathers, the people and shop owners of Ferguson Missouri are exercising their God given rights to defend themselves which is causing a spike in gun sales. The law abiding people of the city have little faith that the police will be able to contain the crowd of rabid rioters who will explode onto the streets when they don’t hear what they want to with regards to the Grand Jury decision concerning Officer Darren Wilson’s fate.  Officer Wilson, as you may recall, shot dead convienince store robber Michael Brown when Brown attacked him through the window of his police cruiser. But, since Brown is black and Wilson is white, the race  baiters and Obama administration (redundant, I know) have poured fuel on the fire to make sure this is a matter of a black man being shot by a white man, not a...

Suicide Guns For Sale: Bad Kharma or Just Discounted Firearm?

In honor of the Halloween season, I bring you a story touches on the macabre.  In Greensburg, PA, a place a little to the east of Pittsburgh, the county coroner is auctioning off 97 guns used in suicides and accidental shooting deaths. The sale is to take place on November 8th and will be the first governmental gun sell back in Westmoreland County since the 1980’s. Corner Ken Bacha says state law requires local governments sell off unclaimed property. While they have often have sales auctioning off property and vehicles this will be the first gun auction since Bacha’s fater Leo, was coroner back in the 80’s.  Proceeds will help fund county government.  The coroners office takes possession of weapons during death investigations.  Family members have a year to claim these weapons before they become county property, but under the nature of which they were last used, it is understandable that...

Backwards Bullet…what happens when you load a bullet backwards in a casing? [Video]

I have to admit, I never thought of this, but if you load your ammunition and choose to load the bullet in reverse it has some surprising results. The theory is that by putting the concave portion of the bullet at the top, the shooter will have effectively created a projectile that will work as a hollow point round. In the following video from the Ammo Channel, the host puts this theory to the test using .308 Winchester rounds that he loaded himself. He uses both the traditional loading and the reverse loading then shoots into both ballistic jelly as well as steel plate. I found the results to be rather interesting but not unsurprising. Now, while the reverse bullet causes more damage I do have to wonder on the limitations of accuracy and distance that such a bullet might suffer.  Think of throwing an asymmetrical football with a...

FBI Claims Stopping Power A “Myth”

On the heels of the Army looking to replace the 9mm Beretta pistol as its standard sidearm, the FBI’s Training Division released a “new study” in May that was recently leaked to the public.  The Study claims that the 9mm Luger pistol is the best option for law enforcement.  Suggesting that departments shouldn’t switch their sidearms to larger rounds. The FBI Study shows there are a number of reasons for their conclusion.  But their rationale is laughable. Looking over a copy of the FBI study I found their conclusions and assumptions to be rather simplistic.   Among their justifications for the 9mm being a superior round are: Law Enforcement Officers aren’t skilled enough to shoot a larger round nothing that they missed 80% of the time with a 9mm so to increase the caliber means increasing the miss rate FBI Shooters shoot better with the 9mm Luger You can hold more rounds with a 9mm...

Episcopal Bishop Claims Jesus Is an Ignorant Coward

During a panel of the Religious Newswriter Association’s annual meeting in Atlanta this past week, gun hating Episcopal bloward and anti gun zealot Bishop Robert Wright went on a tear, speaking for Jesus, tearing into and insulting the NRA, English speakers and Georgians in general. The panel was entitled “God and Guns.” Highlights of what Bishop  Wright had to say: “Jesus is not from Georgia. Jesus does not speak English. And Jesus is not a member of the NRA.” “There is no Biblical Scripture supporting gun ownership.” “You can say a lot about your opinions on guns, but you can’t put those words in Jesus’ mouth” The rest of the panel was as equally “balanced” in their viewpoint.  Odd that the RNA couldn’t find a SINGLE person of faith who might have objected to the blatant one sided viewpoint offered by the panel.  The RNA actually had the gall...

Why you should ALWAYS carry a sidearm when you go hunting

You never know when a black bear is going to chase you up a tree and chew on your leg. Washington State bow hunter Jerry Hause found himself in the unenviable position of being on a black bear’s dinner menu when he was out hunting on Labor Day.  House, 60, was out with his 26 year old son in a remote section of forest near Abernathy Creek, about 8 miles west of Longview WA. After a hike of about 3 miles into the wood, Jerry took a rest against a tree before starting to flush game towards his son.  He set his pack and bow beside him as he leaned against the tree and that is when he saw it.  A black head about 80-100 yards away that he figured was a bear.  At that point, Hause decided it was time to move on.  “I stood up and in...

Missouri School Districts Taking Security Seriously

…by giving their teachers guns in order to protect their students. Unlike the ludicrous notion that a “gun free zone” sign produces some mystical force field that keeps gun toting maniacs off school grounds, four school districts in West Plains Missouri are taking PRACTICAL steps in order to ensure the safety of both students and faculty. These school districts recently sent staffers to the hilltop range of West Plains for five days of firearms training. The instructors, all current law enforcement officers, train teachers to deal with their most likely scenario; essentially close-quarters combat while youngsters scream and run about. On the instructors command the teachers take action, they make an evasive sidestep “stepping off the X,” it’s called. They pull the Glock 19s from their holsters and fire at metal targets 50 inches tall with painted faces at the tops, careful not to hit the innocents in front and...

Carrying guns and drinking booze

I know there are a wide range of opinions on the matter. And in truth I think guns and alcohol go together as well as driving and alcohol.  Yet, with that being said, who among us hasn’t had a drink with dinner at a restaurant and then drove home?  Just because a drop of alcohol passes our lips does not immediately make us drunken blathering idiots. It comes down to personal responsibility.  I know, in today’s America that is a radical concept. In Pennsylvania it is legal to carry a loaded firearm into a bar and have a drink.  I know in other states in the union they like to micromanage through legislation every facet of a person’s life in order to control them as much as possible “for their own good”. It always baffles me when government treats its citizens like helpless children and then are surprised when...

How not to be a jackass with a gun

Not knowing a gun is loaded is not an accident. It’s negligence. Engaging in a shouting match with some mouth breathing gun control zealot does not help anyone EXCEPT the gun control zealot.  The press will spin their drooling vitriol laced rage as being “passionate about protecting children” while spinning you, the gun owner, as a person on the brink of murder. The following video discusses a few things to keep in mind to avoid being a jackass with a gun. Enjoy.   It’s pretty simple folks.  Be safe and don’t lower yourself to the rambling idiocy of the opposition. Don’t provide ammo for them make caricatures of gun owners.   Related articles Hilarious: Pro-Gun Bill Named After Rabid Anti-Gun Fanatic Piers Morgan And He’s Not Too Happy About It Guns. Simple as that. Mayors Against Illegal Guns Shows That Liberals’ Goals Are Worse Than They...

Non-Gun Real World Example Of “Better To Have and Not Need Than Need and Not Have”

Gun control zealots are all about bemoaning the point that the chances of a person needing a gun are remote.  It may suprise many of my readers but I agree with them.  Fortunately the vast majority of gun owners will never have to use their firearm to protect themselves. But so too will a vast majority of homeowners not have their house burn down yet no one is suggesting that fire insurance is somehow only purchased by pyromaniacs. Do seat belts make people worse and more reckless of drivers? I can go on and on with this track of logic, logic of course being the bane of gun control.  And I could highlight gun owners who were raped or robbed or murdered because they were in a “gun free” zone (or non gun owners who never had a chance), then show comparative footage of gun owners who stopped such...

Iconic AK-47 Inventor Passes Away

I love America. I think we are pretty much the bees knees when it comes a lot of things But sometimes you’ve got to give a commie his due. The world lost a pioneer today, Mikhail Kalashnikov passed away today at the ripe old age of 94. His lasting legacy will be the firearm that bears his name, the  Avtomat Kalashnikova that he created in November of 1947; thereafter known colloquially as the AK-47. Despite being the poster child gun for gun controllers who wish to stamp out so called “assault rifles” the AK-47 is one of the most impressive rifles of the modern era. Compared it a M-16, which can be fickle in both weather and cleaning, the AK can be tossed in a mud pit, covered in sand, run over by a truck, left there over the winter and still be ready to fire when you pull the trigger. It...
