A pair of armed lowlifes were in the process of robbing a Waffle House restaurant when a waitress ran out to her car and put a stop to the madness. She retrieved a gun and fired a warning shot in the air. With hot lead raining down from the sky, the thugs decided that the robbery was over and fled with a measly $200. The waitress has been fired and some speculate that this termination was due to Waffles House’s ban on employees possessing guns.

To the media’s horror the armed citizen strikes again:

O.K. granted, as a general rule of thumb, warning shots in the air are usually an ill-advised self defense strategy.

That being said, it’s not like the bullet falling from the sky poses some sort of extreme danger to the public like the reporter claims it does. As this MythBusters finding demonstrates, a shot fired straight up in the air probably can’t fall with enough velocity to be fatal, but when fired at an angle the falling bullet could potentially reach lethal velocity. It’s pretty unlikely that the bullet would have the bad luck of: (A.) landing on someones head, and (B.) have enough velocity to kill them, but it’s at least remotely possible.

Anyway, the risk of injury from falling bullets isn’t the main reason that warning shots are generally a bad idea. A shot meant to get attention and show the criminals that you mean business, could be misinterpreted as an attack on them, resulting in retaliatory gunfire. In most circumstances it’s a bad idea, but that doesn’t mean it’s always the wrong decision.

The bottom line, this waitress was in fear for her life and did what she saw as necessary to protect herself. The shot in the air added little danger to the public and the thugs ran like hell for their lives. Score one for the armed citizen!

These guys thought of everything. The new Urban carry G2 holster allows you to wear your gun well below your belt line without having to fish around in your pants to draw.

Check this thing out for yourself:

Imagine the shock on a criminal’s face when a full size 1911 almost magically pops out of your waistline. What’s really exciting about this style of draw, is that it makes wearing a large frame pistol much more practicable.

This is one of those — I hesitate to call it a “gimmick” — things — that has a very limited use. It’s kind of like the “Sneaky Pete” holsters that are look like “pager” or cell phone holsters — but they hold a gun. For some remote reason you might want to carry something like this.

A big drawback is that it’s going to be a little slow drawing with one hand. In fact, without some practice, it will be very slow one handed. Plus, why would you make a deep concealment rig with a picture of a gun on the only part that clips on your belt that everyone can see? Stupid.

All in all, kind of neat idea even if the reality isn’t as great as they might think … Just when you thought you had seen it all, someone pushes the boundaries yet again. God bless American ingenuity!

Glass chart and red arrowBarack Obama wasn’t just a great gun salesmen, he also presided over the largest increase in concealed carry permits in our history.  Under Obama, permits skyrocketed a stunning 215%. That doesn’t even include the states where no permit is required.

A new report from CPRC is packed full of facts the mainstream media would rather you not know. The bottom line is that the number of Americans choosing to arm themselves outside of their homes is exploding.

Highlights of the new report from CPRC:

During President Obama’s administration, the number of concealed handgun permits has soared to over 14.5 million – a 215% increase since 2007. Among the findings of our report:
■ In ten states, more than 10% of adults have concealed handgun permits. Indiana has the highest rate — 15%. South Dakota is close behind with 14.7%.
■ Florida, Pennsylvania, and Texas each have over a million residents who are active permit holders.
■ In another 11 states, a permit is no longer required to carry in all or virtually all of the state. Thus the growth in permits does not provide a full picture of the overall increase in concealed carry.
■ Between 2012 and 2016, in states that provide data by gender, the number of women with permits has increased twice as quickly as the number of men with permits.

Interesting that Indiana has the highest ratio of permit holders among the states that require them. Congrats, Hoosiers!

Another interesting takeaway is that the number of permits among women is increasing faster than permits among men.

Can Hillary Clinton tell us who she is fighting for again? Who is waging a war on women? Who is disarming them?

None of this news fits Obama’s narrative, so don’t expect to hear about it anywhere else.
