Thought for the day

"Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks." -- Doug Larson, English middle-distance runner who won gold medals at the 1924 Olympic Games


President Joe Biden is stripping legally-owned guns from Americans with legally-recognized medical marijuana prescriptions, even as he moves to free prisoners jailed for marijuana possession.

Banks have been working on technology to "identify potential mass shooters" by tracking gun-related purchases and filing "Suspicious Activity Reports" with the Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.


he Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is set to release its final rule on Braced firearms later this month. 

In Analyzing the proposed rule, which was released June 2021, it appears that ATF has intentionally designed its Factoring Criteria for Rifled Barrel Weapons with Accessories Commonly Referred to as "Stabilizing Braces" to effect a complete ban of every pistol-braced firearm currently on the market. 

A new study published in the American Journal of Public Health revealed the number of law-abiding Americans carrying a loaded handgun daily nearly doubled between 2015-19. 

The study titled "Trend in Loaded Handgun Carrying Among Adult Handgun Owners in the United States, 2015‒2019" found the number of law-abiding US adults carrying handguns nearly doubled from 9 million in 2015 to 16 million in 2019.

President Joe Biden hopes to push through a law that will essentially ban all assault weapons in America.

He cannot stand the fact that people have the right to defend themselves against evil powers that would seek to suppress freedom.

Fox News reported that Senator Chris Murphy from Connecticut blew Biden’s hopes of such a law out of the water by pointing out there are not enough votes to pass such a law.

The Democrat Governor of Colorado says that he does not endorse the assault weapons ban proposed by President Joe Biden.

Governor Jared Polis took a stand against his party on this one. However, he says he is willing to look closer at licensing requirements for high-powered weapons within the state. Thus, he takes things a step further than many Republicans would like, but at least he is not going as far as fully signing on to an assault weapons ban.

Although it is not the optimal tool for every job, a .22 pistol can get a lot done. In my neck of the woods, it is not uncommon at all to see fishermen, hikers, and hunters packing a .22 rimfire. Apparently, such guns also have their uses outside of snake-ridden south Louisiana. Smith & Wesson has been producing compact 22 double-action revolvers for over 100 years with the “kit gun” idea in mind.

Earlier in the year, the Supreme Court overruled blue states’ attempts to violate Americans’ rights. It struck down a law in New York that made concealed carry essentially impossible. So, the radical liberal government of the state quickly passed a new set of rules, making it even harder for a New Yorker to defend himself.

A study from the American Journal of Public Health found that nearly 6,000 gun owners carried handguns every day in 2019 compared to roughly 3,000 in 2015. Additionally, the number of people responding to an online survey about the daily carrying of handguns rose from about 9 million in 2015 to 16 million.

The study zeroed in on those who carry a handgun on their person, not just those who might happen to have one in their vehicle.
