Armed Law Enforcement Agent Asked To Leave Outback Steakhouse

From NRA-ILA:

I was approached by the manager and asked if I would put my gun in my truck. I let her know that I couldn’t because I was in uniform. She then went and made a call and came back and we were asked to leave because Outback is a gun free zone.

In an update to his initial post, Ward noted that he was asked to leave after Outback management bent to the will of an unhinged customer. According to Ward, “There was another customer who was ‘scared for her life’… because ‘police are shooting people.’” Ward explained that “the customer went on to demand to be escorted to her vehicle out of fear of being shot.”

Weatherby Moves From California To Wyoming

From San Louis Obispo:

Weatherby is the latest gun industry manufacturer to move its operations to Wyoming in the last five years from states that were not seen as friendly to the gun industry. Several companies, including Magpul Industries, moved their manufacturing operations to Wyoming from Colorado after Colorado lawmakers enacted stricter limits on the sale of firearms accessories.

More gun manufacturers need to do the same. Looking at you Springfield, Remington et al.

Col. Cooper’s Colors Re-Examined

From BreachBangClear:

In Cooper’s original intent, one could scale from Condition White, in which one is completely unprepared for combat, to Condition Red, in which one is psychologically committed to combat, regardless of whether the fight has actually begun or not. Essentially, he recognized many people must mentally gear up for violence, and his code traced that progression to help the mental switch.

That is not, however, how Cooper’s Colors are generally used in the modern firearms training world.

“Bump Fire” Doesn’t Require A Bump Stock

MAC demonstrates bump fire without a special device:

No external or internal devices were used to increase the rate of fire of this rifle @nationalrifleassociation . This is a bone stock AK with nothing but a finger. STOP the NRA and BATF from changing the law, through the misuse of rule making, to ban “rate increasing devices” like my finger, or @geissele 3-Gun triggers, or even magazines based on their capacity. Jan 25th the ATF is going to announce their rule change, pushed by the NRA, that will leave the door wide open for the next anti-gun administration to impose Canadian type restrictions on Americans with the stroke of a pen, no act of Congress will be required. GET IN THE FIGHT AND TELL THE NRA TO STOP BACKING ANTIGUN LAWS! This video makes Marion Hammer, the NRA Fudd, have nightmares. @gunownersofamerica @coppercustom #triggerpuller #pewpew #guns #mac #2amendment #2a #molonlabe #tactical #firearms #merica #freedom #gunlife #shooting #militaryarms #military #gunporn @weaponsdaily @gunwebsites @gunchannels_ @brownellsinc @gunfreaks #brownells @cameraman.mac #goa #gunownersofamerica @forgedfromfreedom #forgedfromfreedom

Government Unable To Purchase Illegal Firearms Online

From IJR:

Our covert testing involving GAO agents attempting to purchase firearms illegally on the Surface Web were unsuccessful. Specifically, private sellers on Surface Web gun forums and in classified ads were unwilling to sell a firearm to our agents that self-identified as being prohibited from possessing a firearm.

New NICS Law Could Be Opening For More Gun Control

From Townhall.com:

“Enforce the law” has been a mantra for squish Republicans.  So, you may ask, what’s wrong with making sure every single eligible name reaches NICS?

The answer is that the “dirty little secret” of NICS is that the prohibited persons law (18 U.S.C. 922(g)) and its interpretation under a 2007 law and its regulations are so perverse that, if actually enforced to the letter, they would ban guns from millions of additional law-abiding Americans.

If this doesn’t bother you, how about 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(3)’s ban on marijuana smokers?  Under Cornyn-Schumer, states would be required to turn over to the FBI medical marijuana lists, and lists of persons in diversion and medical treatment programs.  Incidentally, the FBI still regards all of these people as federal felons.

Or what about the roughly 13% of all Brady Law denials occurring under 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(2) — a scary “fugitive” category which normally means that the person had an unpaid traffic ticket while on vacation?  This is actually happening now, and is a major issue.  Are we going to turn in the names of all “renegade parkers” who haven’t paid their fines?

A Remembrance For Veterans Day

From IJR:

My grandfather, a World War II veteran, died of cancer when I was 15 years old. He hadn’t talked much about the war — when asked, he always repeated the same two stories: one about eating canned spaghetti for Christmas dinner and the other about a kind Belgian woman who had let him pass a cold night in her basement, despite knowing she could be killed for helping an American soldier.

But PopPop, as we called him, never told us a lot of things — and in the months and years after his death, a picture began to take shape.

No Right To Sell Guns?

From Guns.com:

The U.S. 9th Circuit on Tuesday upheld an Alameda County law barring gun stores within 500 feet of residential properties in a blow to gun rights advocates.

The court held that local governments could regulate the sale of firearms so long as would-be buyers were still able to purchase them somewhere in the area and that the Second Amendment does not protect the ability to engage in gun sales.

The obvious question now is: Do you have a constitutional right to sell books?
