The Attempted Assassination Of Trump Was A Near Miss For Him and The Country

From Ammoland:

The assassination attempt on Donald Trump was not a fluke but instead the latest in a long series of attacks and attempted attacks against conservative public figures, typically preceded by hyperbolic political rhetoric.

But forget all that. All is well again, thanks to the man who branded not only Trump but any MAGA American an “existential threat to democracy,” who called Trump “semi-fascist,” who said “It’s time to put Trump in a bullseye,” and who now proclaims that you should “turn down the temperature.”

“Some of you may have seen that YouTube changed their policy on gun videos on June 18, and we were not aware how much that was going to affect us until very recently when we talked to our Google rep,” John Kinman said on the video. “And you may notice that our videos posted since June 18 have been removed.”

Make Sure Your Gun Owning Friends Are Registered To Vote

This is surprising, shocking, and altogether unacceptable. Voting is a Sacred Right and a tremendously important responsibility. The Arbalest Quarrel looked into the failure of millions of gun owners to register to vote. We learned that Ten Million American gun owners have not registered to vote in the 2024 U.S. Presidential election. This is no small number and can have a decisive impact on the outcome of Federal Elections.

Gun Advocates Stick To Principles After Assassination Attempt

From Bearing Arms:

 … the media is filled with stories about how the attempted assassination of former President Donald Trump should prompt gun control. So far, no one in the Republican Party is saying any such thing, though. That’s not overly surprising since, as I feel obligated to point out far too often now, they didn’t fold on guns after the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia.

But it seems the folks over at Vox are upset that Republicans aren’t changing everything right now in how they view guns.

Veterans Administration Refuses To Abide By Legislation

From Bearing Arms:

We’ve covered the fact that the VA is inhibiting some vets from exercising their gun rights, reporting those who get fiduciaries–people who help them manage their money–and making them ineligible to exercise their gun rights despite no actual due process.

And to make it worse, officials claim they will not comply with legislation that would prevent that.

Anti-Gunners Use Trump Assassination Attempt To Push More Bans

From Bearing Arms:

After narrowly dodging a bullet from an AR-15 rifle, former US President Donald Trump, now vying for the 2024 presidential bid under the Republican banner, may find himself pondering anew on his stance regarding gun rights. The attempt on Trump’s life at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday night casts a significant shadow over the upcoming Republican National Convention, set to begin on Monday in Milwaukee. Trump has often championed the cause of citizen gun ownership, yet amid mass shootings events before, there were fleeting moments where he entertained the notion that some form of regulation might be prudent.

Company Producing Ammo Vending Machines

From Ammoland:

The vending machines in question, from American Rounds, use computer technology to validate age with picture ID. If the person attempting to purchase ammunition is over 21 years old, they may purchase the ammunition using a picture ID, which the machine validates using facial recognition software. Only credit or debit card purchases seem possible. There does not appear to be any way to pay with cash on the face of the machine. This means a double check of identification takes place, as the person whose identification is validated must also use a credit card, which has to be separately validated.

Body Armor Ban Challenged BY FPC

From The Truth About Guns:

The fact that some states like New York ban the private ownership of body armor basically tells me just one thing—they want to be able to kill you without you having any protection to avoid that. Such laws are absurd, making anyone who owns body armor for any reason a criminal.

Lever Action Cartridges Still In Use Today

From American Hunter:

Hunting with a lever-action rifle is a unique experience; in this day of high-magnification optics and high ballistic coefficient bullets, the lever rifles seem to be a throwback to a bygone era. However, looking at a good number of hunting scenarios—especially our deer-hunting here in the Eastern U.S., the thick forests of the Pacific Northwest and the many hunts over feeders throughout the Southern U.S.—the lever guns and their associated cartridges pose no real handicap. Quite obviously, a round-nosed bullet from one of the slower, rimmed cartridges isn’t the best choice for taking a buck across a bean field, but for shots inside of 150 yards, where the majority of my shots in New York have been, these guns and their cartridges work quite well.
