Speaking at the NRA’s annual meeting on April 28th, Donald Trump will be the first sitting president to do so since Ronald Reagan. The NRA threw aside tradition and endorsed Donald Trump well before he even had the Republican nomination secured. Given that Trump has supported banning so-called assault weapons in the past, it was highly unusual for the NRA to endorse Trump so early.

The move paid off big time for the NRA. Getting the President of the United States to come to your annual meeting is a big deal, from fundraising to prestige it’s a huge win for the NRA. For Donald Trump it’s also a win-win. He can shore up some support with some of his disgruntled his conservative/libertarian base. Support he has been slowly losing by getting involved in Syria and failing to repeal Obamacare. Normally, the media would raise a huge stink about the president helping on the NRA like this, but the left-wing media has already maxed out the outrage factor. Trump is already being portrayed as a fascist dictator who spawned from Satan himself. Visiting the NRA at it’s annual meeting isn’t going to hurt Trump politically, it’s just another story that will be lost in the noise of the anti-Trump machine.

The NRA realized that Trump was going to win the nomination long before most pundits did and they also realized that Trump would be rewarding loyalty to him. While some angry Ted Cruz fans may have canceled their memberships for understandable anger, the NRA played the long game and won. Trump has put himself in a position where violating campaign promises on guns will be much more difficult than it will be with other issues. America is now discovering the difference between presidential candidate Trump and President Trump, to the relief of gun owners President Trump likes the Second Amendment just as much as candidate Trump did. Here’s the NRA announcement.

The results of Maryland’s high capacity magazine ban are in. The law totally and utterly failed to reduce the number of criminals carrying magazines with more than 10 rounds. In fact, the number of crooks doing so, has actually increased.

Don’t expect this complete and utter failure to deter progressives from continuing to push nonsensical gun control laws in the future. Maryland joined New York in the sham of “ballistic finger printing,” after both states wasted millions of dollars building a data base of shell casings, they both admitted that the databases had solved zero crimes. The progressive state leaders shrugged their shoulders and moved on to the next gun control scam.

The fine folks over at Bearing Arms Recap the miserable failure of the Maryland ban:

“Together, with a strong coalition of advocates, and the people of Maryland who overwhelmingly support policies to reduce gun violence, we’ve chosen to take action by advancing strategies that work to save lives,” O’Malley said at the time.

But in the four years since implementing the expanded gun laws, Baltimore police continue to see an uptick in criminals carrying the banned magazines.

“We’re dealing with absolute criminals who want as much weaponry as possible when they’re going after their targets,” T.J. Smith, a Baltimore police spokesperson told The Trace. “They’re not carrying .22s. They’re carrying the big guns that have these high capacities.”

Sadly, the media could care less that magazine bans have been proven to be totally ineffective. Nothing to see here, move along.

The threaded barrel is about to become the most sought after feature on target pistols. Soon, thanks to the election of Donald Trump, sound suppressors will be legal without paying a $200 tax and wading through months of paper work. To attach a new silencer, you’ll want a threaded barrel.

As if the lower cost of .22 ammunition isn’t enticing enough, the factory threaded barrel and factory silencer makes the Ruger Mark IV an absolute must have in the age of Trump.

The athestetics of the gun are fantastic, the barrel shroud and silencer mate together perfectly to maintain the Mark IV’s lines. Silencers for virtually any other caliber will function with the Mark IV, since it’s safe to use a smaller round in a can designed for a bigger bullet.

Check it out:

During the age of Obama, the public rushed out to buy guns they thought he would ban. Now many of these gun owners will need a gun they can afford to practice with. The Ruger Mark IV fills that role and is neatly positioned for the coming rush of first time silencer buyers.

This thing is just unreal! You can rack the slide on your gun, while it’s in the holster. Why don’t you just carry it with a round in the chamber? I don’t have a good answer for you on that one, but if you want a holster that allows you to rack the slide as you draw, such a thing exists.

The Fire Arms Blog sheds some light on the rationale for the product here:

For Law Enforcement outside of the US, some of them have to carry chamber empty. I saw this posted online. It was posted by a Filipino Gun Club. The holster allows the user to chamber a round as they draw the gun out.

It reminds me of the the Crye Gun Clip in that drawing the weapon out is a tilting/rocking out motion rather than a standard upward draw. However one issue I have is that the trigger is not covered up. It looks like there is some sort of trigger block when the Glock is locked in the holster. But that is not as good as a proper holster that completely covers the holster.

It’s made by APS conception, a company that mostly makes airsoft rifles. You can watch a video on the holster and read more here.

An obvious no-brainer, is that silencers are the best method to preventing hearing loss among shooters. This fact doesn’t sit well with progressives obsessed with politicizing gun control.

Here’s the devastating blow:

This puts to rest the bogus claim from the Americans for Responsible Solutions that foam earplugs are the best way to protect hearing. That now thoroughly debunked claim, tweeted out as a “fact,” by the group led by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, earned three Pinnochios from the Washington Post’s Fact Checker column.

Here are the facts straight from the guys in the white coats who actually went to medical school and who are able to draw medical conclusions based upon peer-reviewed scientific evidence.

“Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership strongly supports making firearm suppressors readily available to the public as a critical health intervention to prevent Americans’ hearing loss,” said Dr. Arthur Przebinda, the group’s director. “Reducing barriers to firearms suppressor ownership and decreasing the likelihood of gunshot blast noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus in tens of millions of U.S. firearms owners will have no material impact on criminal firearms use.”

This is why these doctors support passage of the Hearing Protection Act of 2017, introduced in the House of Representatives as H.R. 367 and in the Senate as S. 59. They cited evidence of instant and permanent hearing loss reported by government and military researchers, as well as in medical journals.

You have to wonder why the Hearing Protection Act of 2017 is controversial with anyone.  Ohh no, now all these darn right wingers will be able to listen to their Rush Limbaugh program without hearing aids. Is that what leftists are worried about? Poor liberals, can they survive the horror of reducing noise pollution at gun ranges?

The good news is that left-wing groups like Americans for Responsible Solutions are wasting their resources to spread lies about laws like this one, laws that will almost certainly pass. Every dollar a leftist wastes fighting the Hearing Protection Act of 2017 is a dollar they could have spent fighting for socialism. Every ounce of political capital they waste on removing silencers from NFA regulations is an ounce of political capital they could have used to further degrade our culture. So have at progressives! Keep destroying your credibility with your hilarious lies, America will be all the greater in spite of your effort.

The projectiles from Russia’s new gun can round corners or even swarm into air ducts and other tight spaces. Guns that fire drones are a real thing and they’re scary as all hell. The drones can work together to conduct surveillance or deliver death to their victims.

Why fire drones from guns? (From DefenseOne.com)

On Thursday, Russian news site Tass revealed a reconnaissance drone that a soldier would shoot from “a hand-held grenade launcher.”

“The drone is prepared for launch within a period of 5 seconds to 3 minutes, depending on the time of preparing a flight program in cases when other similar drones require much more time for accomplishing the mission,” Tass reported.

The Russians are also working on drone swarms that can be launched from 30MM cannons.

Naturally, missiles are also in the mix:

The conference announcement follows a February announcement that Russian arms manufacturers had worked up a way to launch drones from a much larger Smerch multiple launch rocket system.

“The idea to create an unmanned air vehicle enclosed in a Smerch missile warhead is not new. We have carried out technological research and produced it at our own expense, we are not hiding it. We hope customers will start streaming in soon,” Nikolai Makarovets, chief designer of the Splav research and manufacturing association, told Tass.

Deploying drones into the battlefield as quickly as possible will be critical in modern warfare. Old fashioned means, such as gun powder, are already being used to deliver futuristic weaponry.

Loading an Ar-15 in California, can be quite a chore. This nanny state has many stupid regulations, but for every dumb regulation there’s a genuis workaround.

Using a new product from Cross Armory,  simply separate the upper receiver from the lower and watch the magazine fall out. This new device is totally complaint with the People’s Republic of California’s laws, the children will all be safe when you follow this procedure.

The down low on this new product:

Cross Armory’s SAFE MAG is a modification, designed in California, for weapons in regulated states that require fixed magazines, such as CA NY CT MA MD and other states. The Cross Armory SAFE MAG works by releasing your magazine instantly when you separate the upper and lower receivers of your AR-15 or M4, without having to press a button.

Cross Armory’s SAFE MAG is intended to be consistent with the fixed magazine laws which state that your weapon must have a “fixed magazine” which has been defined as “an ammunition feeding device contained in, or permanently attached to, a firearm in such a manner that the device can not be removed without disassembly of the firearm action.” The firearm action of an AR-15 and M4 is housed in the upper and lower receivers. Separating the upper and lower receiver to release your magazine disables the firearm action.

This product will help gun owners in lots of other states such as New York and Connecticut stay legal when taking guns to the range. It also helps irrational politicians and the people who vote for them feel SAFE.

Is Michael Bloomberg training bomb squads these days? A bomb Squad in SanAntonio, TX evacuated three houses after discovering a few boxes of old rusted ammo. Apparently they have never watched myth-busters, which has an episode on throwing live ammunition into a fire. When ammo goes off outside of gun, it’s just not that dangerous. Old rusted ammo is very unlikely to fire simply from being moved, even if it did discharge, it would pose a pretty minimal risk to the public.

Here’s the fear mongering from the local bomb squad:

SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Police Department’s Bomb Squad was called to a Southwest Side neighborhood Saturday after dozens of rounds of ammunition were found underneath a home.

The ammunition was discovered on the 7900 block of Dempsey Drive, near Old Pearsall Road and Southwest Military Drive, around 2:45 p.m. Saturday.

Capt. Troy Balcar of the San Antonio Fire Department said a family member found a sealed box with about 75 rounds of decades-old ammunition underneath the house. He said the rounds were about 40 years old, based on a date written on the box. Half a dozen nearby homes were evacuated for about three hours.

“This is definitely a big danger, because they’ve been under there so long,” Balcar said. “They’ve rusted, they’ve been exposed to the weather, elements outside so we definitely want to get them disposed of as quickly as possible.”

Family members said a veteran who served for more than 30 years lived at the house until he passed away recently.

This is the second time old ammunition has been found at the home. Just last week, the bomb squad spent about half an hour disposing of shotgun shells found there.

Hmm, that’s reassuring, the spokesperson from the San Antonio bomb squad doesn’t understand the risk of common ammunition. Who on earth would trust these fools near an actual bomb?

Ammunition discharged outside of a gun simply can’t reach a high enough velocity to penetrate walls. Obviously, you wouldn’t want to discharge a bullet in your hand, but lets not act like 911 needs to be called every time someone finds corroded ammo. It’s fine for bomb squads to help citizens dispose of ammo, but evacuating nearby homes is completely insane.

Boring, predictable, and dumb. It’s hard to imagine Hollywood’s newest political propaganda film any other way. This film better be categorized as fantasy or maybe it’s part of the progressive porno genre, in any event, it looks completely ridiculous. It’s a movie about a lobbyist who outsmarts the big bad evil gun lobby.

In reality, the fight over gun control has been the “little people” coming together to fight billionaires like Micheal Bloomberg. Hollywood is rapidly becoming one of the only places left where people still believe the ridiculous lies and myths spread by desperate anti-gun progressives. Polls now show record low for support of the so-called “assault weapons ban.” American’s just don’t want gun control.

Watch this trailer and you’ll see just exactly how pathetic the newest anti-gun pitch really is:

Honestly, it looks like a crappy movie even if it wasn’t about gun control. This is why Hollywood keeps losing money, they just can’t resist politicizing everything. Keep in mind, Bloomberg actually pays people to coach film-makers on how to insert anti-gun messages into movies. It’ll be interesting to see how effective this film is, my guess is not very.

P.S. This is the chick from Zero Dark Thirty — the movie about how the SEALs took out Osama Bin Laden? Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot, OVER? What a shame she would stoop this low in her career after that!
