In the wake of the latest firearms control laws implemented in California this past month, you’ll see a large number of pro-firearms proponents bailing out of the state within the final months of the year. Some are fighting “Gunmageddon” by petition and by conceptual design, I should add. However, there are other problems with the state of California, and it’s not just California, but most of the rest of our favorite anti-firearms states. The economies in the states of California, New York and New Jersey are horrendous, to say the least. This is driving many of the anti-firearms proponents out of those states as well. And, with them comes their unconstitutional mindsets and votes.
This weekend has been an absolute rollercoaster ride through Hell for many people. Two law enforcement engagements with civilians in Louisiana (July 5th) and Minnesota (July 6th) lead to many protests around the United States. This included the protest that occurred in Dallas on the night of the 7th of July where one armed man committed to killing as many white police officers as he could while the Dallas officers kept an eye on a Black Lives Matter protest. Furthermore, Dallas Police Chief David Brown reported that the gunman “had larger plans”.
Back in early February, I went to Lafayette to scout the firearms dealers for a new sidearm. At that point, I was dead set on a SIG-Sauer or an H&K. The goal was to find a DA/SA handgun in 9mm Parabellum for concealed carry; to semi-replace the Glock-19 that I own. This brings us to an admission. Why replace a Glock? I have an insatiable desire for safety. I run an Edge Works INCOG IWB with my Glock, which is of full Kydex construction. I will not run anything other than a Kydex holster and I will never carry without a round in the chamber. Even though there’s no way an unmodified Glock can go off within a Kydex holster, it bothers me to carry the Glock in such a fashion. It’s totally irrational, but it’s something that sits in the back of my mind. So, I decided that something with a hammer and a decocker was the way to go.
What a rollercoaster it’s been, on behalf of 2015. Firearms rights advocates have been hitting back against hostile Restrictionists / Abolitionists, who screamed bloody-murder over the 2013-2014 period. We’ve also witnessed groups like MDA, CSGV and Everytown slowly fading back into the shadows of irrelevance.
Though rather needless to mention, the 2016 Presidential race is on. I haven’t been impressed by the majority of candidates running on the Republican side of the debate nor how the debates have been run. There has certainly been some backwards ass logic when it came to who was included in the Primary and Undercard debates. And don’t make me laugh. None of the Democratic candidates are on the radar. But, of course, it’s just been an all-around circus. Continue reading Til Valhalla – 2016

Recently, a “Public Service Announcement” was released by Rejina Sincic, who is a self-proclaimed gun-control advocate and SanFran-based Sleeper 13 Productions. The video has made the rounds, but I started thinking about the broader impact of what the video might have on younger people. Continue reading In The Crosshairs
