What’s Wrong With This Picture: Low Information Voters Edition

The majority of U.S. voters don’t have a basic understanding of our three-part system of government or the Constitution. Good news! Arizona high school students now have to pass a U.S. citizenship test to graduate. It’s a trend! The voters of tomorrow will make better informed choices. You may not share that confidence. Equally, the term “low information voter” raises the limbo (not Limbaugh) question: how low can you go? Meanwhile, the Bloomberg-financed anti-gun agitprop targeting AB 148 above is short on facts and long on fear-mongering. Will voters wonder what’s wrong with this picture? God I hope so.

Gun Hero of the Day: Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler

Idaho is currently considering constitutional carry. theepochtimes.com reports that Bannock County Sheriff Lorin Nielsen and Pocatello Police Chief Scott Marchand have come out against gun rights restoration. They claim constitutional carry would make their jobs tougher. Au contraire, says Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler. “If you’re a criminal you’re not going to go and follow through and get a concealed weapons permit. If you’re going to commit a crime then you’re just going to commit a crime.” Sheriff Wheeler rejects the idea that Constitutional Carry would make policing more difficult or dangerous with the following piercing (yet welcome) glimpse into the obvious . ….

OMG! A Vending Machine! That Sells Ammo! OMG!

By Brandon via concealednation.com There isn’t anything in the world you can do that isn’t going to upset someone else. Some people just need all the attention, don’t they? A gun range in Pennsylvania, Beaver Valley Rifle & Pistol Club, recently had a vending machine installed that houses all sorts of ammunition calibers that can be used at the range. It’s a service to the members, since non-jacketed ammunition is what the range likes its members to use. Even though it’s installed inside a gun range that requires access with an electronic key, people are still complaining about it . . . The club’s vending machine is…

Cutaway FALs Galore!

Chuck at GunLab recently posted on a cutaway L1A1 British FAL; since I have been studying the FAL recently, I was naturally drawn to the post. Unfortunately, Chuck’s coverage is somewhat spartan, and the images fairly low resolution, so I went hunting for more. I found quite a few great images of cutaway FALs, which […] Read More … The post Cutaway FALs Galore! appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Question of the Day: Guns in Schools?

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player “Six-year-old Elijah goes to Stratton Meadows Elementary School,” krdo.com reports. “On Monday, he pointed at a classmate in the shape of a gun and said, ‘You’re dead.’ . . . He received a one-day suspension for threats against peers.” Coming hard on the heels of my daughter’s 2A mischaracterizing history test, this incident makes me wonder why The People of the Gun aren’t familiarizing school kids with guns and gun rights. Just as businessmen go into schools to talk about capitalism, and police go in to talk about stranger danger and other threats, we should be…

Finding an Affordable Double Rifle: The Hunt Continues

While roaming the aisles of the Safari Club International convention, One of my goals was to find affordable classic double rifles. It’s not an easy task and I was trying to find something under $10,000. The Blaser was nice. But the hooded barrels were a turn off and looked to be an impediment to reloading.  After all, one of the purposes of a double is the follow up shot in a that-critter-charging-me-has-to-be-stopped-now moment. It’s also handy for when that trophy doesn’t go down with one shot, you can hit it again without manipulating a bolt or lever . . . The…
