$1.6 Million Being Withheld From SlideFire

From Guns.com:

Texas-based Slide Fire says the financial institution that processed transactions for its online store is holding “hostage” more than $1.6 million in an effort to force the gun accessory maker into a less favorable business agreement.

Lawmakers Want More Restrictions On Gun Dealers

From Reason:

What’s a politician to do when it’s clear that people will vigorously resist attempts to restrict their lives? Well, you could empower government officials to arbitrarily punish anybody who might help them exercise their freedom. That’s the approach favored by three Democratic members of Congress, who appear to see the path to limiting private firearms ownership in harassing gun dealers and subjecting them to the whims of government officials.

Aimpoint Introduces ACRO Pistol Sight

From Aimpoint:

Malmö, Sweden – June 2018 – Aimpoint, the originator and worldwide leader in red dot sighting
technology, is proud to introduce their new line of red dot sights, the Aimpoint® ACRO™ (Advanced
Compact Reflex Optic) Series. The unique small sight design of the Aimpoint® ACRO series electronic
red-dot sight was developed for use on pistols and other weapon platforms.
For many years, end users have requested a small enclosed red dot sight to fit on handguns. Utilizing
Aimpoint’s advanced sight technology, Aimpoint is proud to launch the first of its kind to the market. The
Acro P-1, offers an enclosed system that is much more durable than those with open systems. It is also
the only sight in its size category fully tested for shock, vibration, temperature span and other
environmental stress.
The Acro P-1 optic can perform under tough conditions while adding negligible size and weight to the
equipment. Tested with a minimum of 20,000 rounds on a .40 cal pistol slide, this small optic has proven
itself in its size category as the leader in ruggedness and reliability.
Designed for direct integration onto pistol slides, the Aimpoint Acro P-1 sight can also be used as a
backup sight for magnifying scopes, personal defense weapons, and on any system where a small red
dot is applicable.
The Acro P-1 sight is a 1X (non-magnifying) parallax-free optic that features a 3.5 minute of angle
(MOA) red dot for fast target acquisition. It is fully submersible to 25 meters and allows continuous
operation for over 1 year on a single CR1225 battery. Dot intensity is adjusted with side push buttons.
“The development of the Acro P-1 sight sets a new standard for compact pistol mounted reflex optics,”
said Aimpoint AB President Lennart Ljungfelt. “The commitment we make to our customers is to develop
the highest performing red-dot sights available. The Acro P-1 optic fulfills that commitment by providing
the lightest and most rugged enclosed red-dot sight in its size category on the market.”
All Aimpoint products are manufactured in Sweden, and Aimpoint AB is headquartered in Malmö,
Sweden. For more information on Aimpoint or other Aimpoint products, please visit our webpage at

Sikh AG Wants Restrictions On 80% Kits

From Guns.com:

Grewal’s action targets unnamed “ghost gun makers” who he argues advertises build and kits to New Jersey residents with possible civil action under New Jersey’s Consumer Fraud Act, with as much as a $10,000 penalty for initial offenses. He holds that fraud is committed because the makers do not disclose that possessing a firearm classified under state law as an unregistered “assault weapon” in New Jersey is a crime.

“As the chief law enforcement officer for New Jersey, I demand you stop selling and advertising unregistered and unserialized assault weapons to New Jersey residents,” Grewal says in the letter. “Should you fail to comply with this demand within 15 days, my Office will initiate legal action.”

“Assault Weapon” Ruse

From Breitbart:

Gun control activists long ago discovered that if they use the term “assault weapon” to describe a firearm, the vast majority of people reading or hearing such term, will picture in their mind a rifle capable of fully automatic fire; this despite the fact that private possession of fully automatic firearms has been essentially unlawful for more than eight decades.

California Turns Man Into Criminal With Registration, Confiscates Guns

From NRA-ILA:

California residents attempting to comply with the Golden State’s ever-increasing swamp of firearms laws and regulations should take warning. According to a report out of Bakersfield, a good faith effort to obey the state’s labyrinthine firearm rules will not spare a gun owner in technical violation of the law from the wrath of the California Department of Justice.

The KGET report explained that during his attempt to comply with state law, Kirschenmann submitted photos of “an illegally modified” AR-15 to the California DOJ. This prompted an investigation by the DOJ that culminated in a raid of Kirschenmann’s home. Once inside the property, investigators allegedly discovered several unregistered “assault weapons,” a pair of suppressors, and what California terms a “multiburst trigger activator.”
