From Bearing Arms:

On Monday, he tweeted, “Just a heads up to firearm YouTubers. It is now against community guidelines, meaning you will get a strike, to insert a 30 round magazine into a gun. YouTube considers that a ‘weapon modification.’ I am not joking.”

Gun Ownership As Optimism

From Open Source Defense:

Far from withdrawing from societal trust, gun ownership is about strengthening a well-functioning society. It’s the idea that if society drops the ball for a second and isn’t able to have your back, you’re ready to do your part and have society’s back, filling the gap for yourself until help arrives.

Louisiana Passes Bill To Deny State Funds To Anti-gun Companies

From Bearing Arms:

The 71 votes in favor of the bill means the measure has a veto-proof majority in the state House, which is critically important given that a similar bill sailed through the legislature in 2021, but was unable to overcome a veto by Gov. John Bel Edwards, who also vetoed a Constitutional Carry bill in the same session.

From Ammoland:

Probably over half the earth’s population understands that weapons have utility, as they have for all of man’s existence. It is an extreme policy to claim that weapons, even toy weapons, collector’s weapons, tools, knives, and self-defense items which are legal in the vast majority of countries, are somehow “bad” and should not be allowed to be advertised.

Chinese Propaganda Movie Shows USA As The Bad Guy

From National Review:

In Wolf II, China is the only powerful, responsible, and benevolent world power. Chinese workers help Africans build their economy. Chinese doctors work to discover a cure for a deadly endemic. And the film unabashedly takes several swipes at the U.S. When African and Chinese civilians inside a factory are under attack by rebels and mercenaries, the only good American in the movie, Rachel Smith, a Chinese-American volunteer, fanatically tries to contact the U.S. embassy for help. Leng asks her, “Why are you calling the Americans? Where are they? It is a waste of time.” After she tells him that she tried to reach American government by Twitter, Leng responds that “the Americans are good for nothing.”

States Fighting Back Against Anti-gun Banks

From The Truth About Guns:

JP Morgan Chase is the largest bank in the country with a balance sheet of nearly $3 trillion dollars.
