Dominance

As seen in Thunder Roads Louisiana Oct. 2017 Vol. 14 – Issue 9.

SIG-Sauer and Glock continue to hold the covers of magazines and the front of web-pages across the internet. For SIG, the headlines consist of the Army’s M17 variant and the “voluntary upgrade” program on “unsafe” P320s in the civilian arena. For Glock, their headlines cover the good and the bad of the new Generation-5 line of handguns. Of course, both issues were met with various degrees of controversy.

Suppression

As seen in Thunder Roads Louisiana July 2017 Vol. 14 – Issue 7.

First off. Happy Independence Day, everyone. I hope you are all well this year and wish you well for the remainder of it.

If you have ever thought about getting into the NFA scene, then you already know that suppressors are probably the most rewarding category to get into. The suppressors and short-barrel firearms nearly break even, in regards to the expense of the items alone. Both categories can range between $400 to $1,500+ or so – depending on the manufacturing quality. This is before you pay the $200 registry tax, paid in full upon submitting the appropriate forms, to the ATF. I am here to share some things that I have learned from owning suppressors and what I’ve learned from others.

Unity

As seen in Thunder Roads Louisiana June 2017 Vol. 14 – Issue 6.

The recent NRA-ILA Leadership Forum was rather underwhelming. The opportunity was given to America, by Americans during the election, to start fresh and start tearing down the old firearms controls. These controls are set forth in Federal law, presidential sanctions on foreign countries, and in BATFE determinations. The United States firearms community has always been divided, just other social issues divides us, but there is hope that the division would be set aside for unity.

Put A Can On It

As seen in Thunder Roads Louisiana Feb. 2017 Vol. 14 – Issue 2.

I don’t consider there to have ever been a question of if State-level nullification legislation was going to be taken seriously, if I may start off being blunt. The Federal government had no intention of sitting idly by as more than half of the Republic started making their own rules for firearms… All categories of them. Most certainly not when it came to legislation which nullified or seemingly nullified Federal firearm laws and protected the Second Amendment. These state laws have varying titles, depending on where the bills were originally written. Montana goes back as being the initial push against Federal firearms and firearms commerce regulation inside the state boundaries with the Firearms Freedom Act of 2009. The law covered all currently regulated NFA items with the simple stipulation that it was stamped or roll-marked, for example, “Made in Montana”.

The Fresh Offensive

With the 2016 Presidential Election done and over with, the NRA has promised a push against standing Federal and State-level anti-firearms laws already on the books. Wayne LaPierre’s comments are seemingly focused on the State-level. The main goal seems to be to make examples out of California and New York. This is, in no small part, because they are the two most restrictive states in the Union and always have been. The last persisting strongholds of the long defunct Federal Assault Weapons Ban. This is somewhat unfortunate, by my viewpoint, due to the opening that has been presented. The ability to take down some important Federal laws (NFA, GCA, Hughes Amendment of FOPA) and fill Supreme Court seats for the settlement of conflicting Circuit Court cases.
