firearm seizures are possible, the police are not responsible for your safety - you are

Firearm Confiscation in the United States

Firearm confiscation isn’t something that only happens on foreign shores.

We’ve had more than a couple instances of firearm confiscation within our own borders, and every example follows a disturbing trend:

The US Government has used (and continues to use) gun control as a way to wield power over racial minorities and those with inconvenient political opinions.

It’s time for a history lesson.

escape vehicle act, because nobody needs a ferrari

Escape Vehicle Ban of 2016

Recent reports are creating a frenzy over the increasing numbers of motor vehicles used in crimes.

We all know that these reports are total BS because the item used to commit a crime is not the real problem, but they make exciting news stories and prompt citizens to feel important by choosing which of the 2 clearly defined “sides” of the “issue” they support, so they continue to proliferate.

Repercussions are largely as expected.

The American public has resumed its cries of “why doesn’t somebody do something?” while simultaneously intending to do nothing more strenuous than posting an emotionally charged status on social media.

*Note: “somebody” in the above context can be assumed to mean “somebody else” and “something” can be assumed to mean “something that doesn’t involve any action, discomfort, or minor irrelevant changes in my own personal routine.”

As usual, politicians have espied the opportunity to seize upon the vague, general fear, and use that widespread unease to sign their name on yet another piece of feel-good legislation.

The proposed legislation will, of course, not actually provide any security.

But at least the aforementioned politicians can claim that they’ve taken some kind of action on your behalf, and will certainly remind you of this during the next election cycle.

The proposed Escape Vehicle Ban legislation is as follows:

anguish and anxiety because 1300 people died today

1,300 Americans Died Today from Preventable Causes, And You Weren’t Told

822 people were killed today, and the majority of people in this country are fighting to make the killer more acceptable in our everyday lives.

365 more people were killed by machines that anyone over 18 can buy without any kind of purchase restrictions.

150 more died from something we have all experienced, and we don’t even worry when it strikes our children.

And another 11 kids lost their lives, either at home or at a friend’s home, by a dangerous object that any family can own without any regulations at all.

What Killed Them, and Why Wasn’t It On the News?

the illusion of safety and security is a dangerous thing

Do you FEEL Safe?

There has been a lot of focus lately on public safety. In the wake of the horrific massacre in Orlando there has been a renewed public outcry to DO SOMETHING to ensure our safety.

We wanted to weigh in on the subject, given that we have a professional focus on safety issues.

Human Rights are Non-Negotiable

Many of us will pick a particular cause to champion, with various human rights being a favorite topic of most.

Some people fight to squash racial prejudice.

Others fight for the rights of those with unconventional sexual orientation.

Religious freedom, free speech and the right to keep and bear arms (RKBA) are other worthy causes.

However, we would be remiss if we didn’t point out that all of these things are interrelated.

For instance, we could not defend our right to practice our chosen religion (or choose NOT to practice one) without being able to voice our preference.

We could not influence laws covering religious freedom without the right to petition our government.

Without the ability to have an impartial jury of our peers arbitrate our grievances, we would be at the mercy of a dictatorial government.

GunGate – Katie Couric Alters VCDL Responses in “Documentary”

Katie Couric has been exposed as a fraud over the current GunGate debacle, and since Gadsden Guns owner Pat Webb was one of the parties whose answers were altered in the so-called documentary, we feel it’s our duty to speak out and share the truth about what really happened.

GunGate – How it Happened

Under the guise of documentary journalism, pro-gun activists were interviewed by Katie Couric in order to “provide varied viewpoints.”

Which Holster Is Right For You?

Whether you’ve never carried a gun before, or you’re just looking for a rig for your latest firearm purchase, it’s worthwhile to take a closer look at the different types of holsters you can choose from.

Of course you know that you should never ever ever carry a pistol without a holster, but did you know that your style of carry can (and should) change with weather conditions, situations, and your clothing styles? Most educated firearm owners who carry regularly have multiple holsters for each gun.
