State Police Eye Early Pistol-Permit Registration

 

 

 

” State Police are planning a pilot program to start getting pistol-permit holders to re-certify their weapons as part of the state’s controversial SAFE Act.

  New York’s gun-control law adopted in January 2013 requires pistol-permit holders to re-certify their weapons every five years starting in 2018.

  But with about 2 million pistol-permit holders in New York, State Police appear to be starting the process early through a pilot program in the Albany area that could slowly expand to other parts of the state, county clerks and sheriffs said.

  The pilot program in Albany, Schenectady and Fulton counties could start as early as next month. State Police, according to local officials, are expected to start by sending out letters to 500 gun owners in each county asking them to voluntarily re-certify their guns now instead of 2018.

” They are trying to break up the workload,” said Wayne County Clerk Michael Jankowski, who wrote a memo to fellow clerks last month after State Police presented preliminary plans at a clerks’ meeting last fall.

  But the scope and the process for the early re-certification is unclear. State Police would offer no specifics.”

Man Tackles, Chokes Armed Walmart Shopper

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Investigators released video Wednesday of one Walmart shopper tackling another after he saw the man carrying a gun. But it turned out the man who was tackled had a concealed-weapons permit.

  Video released by the sheriff’s office shows Clarence Daniels walking into the entryway, with other shoppers and small children nearby. Then you see Michael Foster come up behind him, grab his neck and take him to the ground.

  As the two fall, there are three small children right around them, and they fall into one of them.

  Investigators believe it all started when Foster said he saw Daniels in the parking lot, holstering his gun.  He followed Daniels in and tackled him — without calling 911 or alerting store security, the Hillsborough Sheriff’s Office said.

  Store security eventually showed up and detained both men until law enforcement arrived.

  When deputies confirmed that Daniels had a permit for the gun, they arrested Foster.

  One witness saw it all, and was outraged.”

 

 

CCW Carrier Attacked

 

” “ He doesn’t even know who the victim is,” said Manton Sameuls. “But he just goes and attacks the man and throws him to the ground, necklock him, for what? Why? What did the man do?”

  Foster is now charged with battery. “

Police Investigate Gunshots Outside VP Biden’s Delaware Home

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Law enforcement officials have boosted security at the Delaware home of Vice President Joe Biden after several gunshots rang out from a vehicle speeding by the property over the weekend.

  The vice president and his wife were not at their Wilmington home Saturday night when the shots were fired and there were no reports of injuries, authorities said Sunday.

  Biden’s office said the vice president and his wife, Jill Biden, were briefed Saturday night, as was President Barack Obama. Biden’s office referred all other questions to the Secret Service. The vice president was set to speak Monday morning in Wilmington at a Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast organized by a minority women’s group.

  Secret Service spokesman Robert Hoback said the shots were fired at about 8:25 p.m. Saturday on a public road outside the home’s secure perimeter. Biden’s home is several hundred yards from the road. Secret Service personnel stationed at the top of the long, winding driveway leading to Biden’s home heard the shots, saw the vehicle drive past the home at a high rate of speed and flee the scene.”

   Maybe it was Jill on the balcony , letting loose a couple blasts to chase off some intruders … on second thought they better check the front door for damage … LOL

Hatsan USA, Inc. Announces Their New Carnivore Line Of Big Bore Airguns!

 

 

 

Published on Jan 14, 2015

” Scroll down for more information:

About this Video:

  Hatsan USA has taken their proven BT65 side bolt platform and expanded its capabilities. Now available in .30 and .35 caliber, these new offerings excel where it counts.

  Power – Having sufficient power to make clean kills at range is critical. Each caliber has been specifically tuned to maximize its performance, while still maintaining a high shot count. The .30 cal produces up to 75 foot pounds of energy and the .35 cal generates up to 95 foot pounds of energy.

  High Shot Count – Each Carnivore model will deliver 2 to 3 full
magazines of consistent power output. That’s, at least, 12 shots in .35 caliber and up to 21 shots in .30 caliber. In the Big Bore classification, there are few airguns that can match the Carnivore’s combination of “energy with shot count” performance.

  Effective Range – both calibers will consistently put lead on target at 50, 75, and even 100 yards making them some of the most accurate big bore airguns on the market at any price.

  Extremely Quite – The Carnivore line expands the use of Hatsan’s Quiet Energy System. Utilizing a fully integrated barrel shroud and suppressor, the perceived sound is extremely low and registers under 100 DB in 3rd party testing.

  Affordability – Continuing with their philosophy of delivering great airguns at reasonable prices, Hatsan USA has released their new Carnivore Big Bore Rifles at a very aggressive price point for their class.

  The New Carnivore Big Bore series from Hatsan USA. Taking serious, solid, impact to the next level and then some. Available now at select retailers.

Newtown School Panel To Include Proposed Gun Ban In Report

 

 

 

” An advisory panel charged with looking at public safety in the wake of the deadly Newtown school shooting agreed Friday to include in its final report a recommendation to ban the sale and possession of any gun that can fire more than 10 rounds without reloading.

  The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission, created by Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in the wake of the 2012 school shooting, plans to complete its work next month. The report will include dozens of recommendations in three categories: law enforcement and emergency response; safe school design and operation; and mental health and wellness.

  In its interim report last March, the commission included the proposed gun ban, which is opposed by the gun lobby and manufacturers. It would go much further than a 2013 Connecticut law which, among other things, expanded the state’s assault weapons ban and barred the possession and sale of large-capacity ammunition magazines.

” Whether or not this law would stand the test of constitutionality is not for this commission to decide,” said former Hartford Police Chief Bernard Sullivan, a member of the panel. “The commission has expressed very strongly that this is a statement that is needed regarding the lethality of weapons.” “

Papa John’s Pizza Stands By Employee Who Shot Armed Robber In Self Defense

 

 

 

 

 

” Papa John’s Pizza is standing by a pizza delivery woman who opened fire Sunday on an armed robber in an act of self defense.

  The pizza franchise told FoxNews.com Thursday the employee, who hasn’t been named, will not be fired from the company. 

  The employee was making a delivery in Decatur, Ga., Sunday night when a man approached her vehicle, forcing her onto the ground at gunpoint, according to the DeKalb County Police Department. The woman, who had a gun in her pocket, was able to fire at the man while on the ground — striking the alleged assailant, identified as 24-year-old Donquaz Stevenson, in the face.

  Stevenson was later found in a neighbor’s yard and arrested, according to police, who said the pizza delivery might have been a setup. Local media outlets reported that a second suspect carjacked the delivery woman’s silver 2000 Honda Accord and remains on the run.

  Stevenson was charged with armed robbery and was being treated for a gunshot wound at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. “

Audio Tapes Reveal How Federal Regulators Shut Down Gun Store Owner’s Bank Accounts

 

 

 

 

” Conversations recorded by a Wisconsin gun store owner provide perhaps the clearest glimpse yet into how the federal government uses regulators to target legal firearm and ammunition sellers.

“ Our hands are tied by it,” a regional manager with Heritage Credit Union told Hawkins Guns owner Mike Schuetz of federal regulations which forced the institution to close Shuetz’s bank accounts in November.

  Recordings of Shuetz’s conversations with the manager and a bank teller, which were published online by the U.S. Consumer Coalition, make it clear that the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) examined the credit union’s books and forced it to close Shuetz’s account — a move he blames on a Department of Justice initiative called Operation Choke Point.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Schuetz’s saga began on Nov. 13, when he says Heritage Credit Union informed him that it would have to close his bank accounts.

“ I received a call from Heritage Credit Union in Hawkins, where I set up my business account for Hawkins Guns. They told me I had to close the account because they do not service companies that deal in guns,” wrote Shuetz on Facebook at the time.”

 

 

    Below is a screen shot from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform’s report from December 8, 2014 , “Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s Involvement in “Operation Choke Point” detailing some of the legal businesses Obama’s Federal regulators have determined are not suitable for the American public to be exposed to .

Firearms Sellers Say They’re Being Choked Off From Payment Processors

 

 

TransNational Bank

 

 

” Go to a gun show, and you won’t find many merchants using PayPal.

  You’ll also find few vendors using popular payment processors such as Square, Stripe and Spark Pay.

  That’s because some payment processors explicitly prohibit the use of their systems for online — and some in-store — sales of firearms, ammunition and certain accessories.

  Retailers in the gun industry say they’re being discriminated against.

“ Being shut out from mainstream payment processors makes us feel like we are part of some type of shady business when, in fact, there is more regulation and documentation required for federally licensed firearms dealers than most businesses,” said Trevor Blandford of Terminal Performance Associates in Caroline, Va.

  Blandford, 21, has been working gun shows for his family’s business since he was 14 years old. Recently, his parents named him general manager of Terminal Performance, which is known for its custom-built pistols and rifles and originally finished wraps. He and his family sell their merchandise online and at local trade shows.”

 

     As the State continues to pursue it’s gun control agenda in the most deceitful and underhanded ways , it is refreshing to know that at least one financial institution is not allowing this blatantly unconstitutional move by our “employees” in the Federal government to shut down legal businesses …

 

” With few options, Terminal Performance then turned to Transnational, a payment processor located in Rosemont, Ill., that is not shy in boasting its support for the Second Amendment.

  Although it processes payments for a range of industries, Transnational has capitalized on the trend of payment processors choking firearms merchants from their customer lists.

“ Our decision to provide services within the firearms industry mostly is predicated by the fact that we believe through the obtaining of an [federal firearms license] it’s one of the more heavily regulated processes that has good governance and good oversight,” Jae Haas, President of Transnational told The Daily Signal in a phone interview.

  Having been in the payment processing business for 16 years, Haas said he’s observed a growing trend of banks and payment processors adding firearms dealers to their “prohibited” or “high-risk” lists.”

 

 

Lovers of liberty would do well to try and give Transnational as much of their business as possible .

132 Year-Old Winchester Rifle Found Against A Tree At Great Basin National Park

 

 

 

” Archaeologists traversing the Great Basin National Park in Nevada came across an interesting find: a 132-year-old Winchester Model 1873 repeating rifle.

  The Facebook page for Great Basin National Park said in a post last week that researchers found the rifle, known as “the gun that won the West,” leaning up against a tree.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” “ The 132 year-old rifle, exposed to sun, wind, snow, and rain was found leaning against a tree in the park. The cracked wood stock, weathered to grey, and the brown rusted barrel blended into the colors of the old juniper tree in a remote rocky outcrop, keeping the rifle hidden for many years,” Great Basin National Park said in a statement. “

Woman Papa Johns Pizza Deliverer Shoots Robber While Held At Gunpoint, And Now Might Lose Her Job

 

Papa John's Delivery Woman Shoots Robber

 

 

 

” On Sunday, a pizza deliverer for Papa Johns was held at gunpoint while making a delivery. The woman, not yet named by police, was forced to lay on the ground by two armed robbers. While on the ground, she was able to pull her gun out of her pocket and shot one of the robbers in the face.

  Donquaz Stephenson, 24, was the suspect that was shot. The other suspect fled, taking the delivery woman’s 2000 Honda Accord.

  One policeman interviewed by WSB-TV concluded, “She felt she had no other choice. She must have been in fear for her life and reacted.”

  The employee was not hurt, but she now fears that she will lose her job for carrying her weapon.”

Contrary To Media Narrative, Gun Sales Are Steadily Increasing

 

 

 

” If you only follow news in the Left wing echo chamber, you might be tempted to think that Americans have begun turning their backs on gun ownership. Whenever there is one smidgen of data to suggest a decline in sales, the media will latch onto it as proof of a larger trend. The most recent example was when Virginia saw a slight decrease in background checks following three years of exponential growth. (Note the difference in terminology between actual sales and background checks which will become crucial a bit later.) Time Magazine, just last summer, went so far as to list guns as one of the ten things people just aren’t buying anymore. (Along with cereal, gum and … bread. Really?) But is there any truth to this? Are we falling out of love with our beloved tools of self-protection?

   The NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action takes a look at the actual figures and finds the claims to be less than substantive.

  The media’s claims about gun purchase trends are based upon the annual numbers of firearm-related background checks conducted through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). NICS statistics are not a perfect measure of gun purchases, but to the extent they illustrate trends in purchases, they show that the rate at which Americans are acquiring firearms is actually increasing.”

NY SAFE Act Reform On The Table

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Two years after the state adopted among the toughest gun-control measures in the nation, some Republican state lawmakers are seeking reforms to the controversial law.

  Republicans senators in recent days have introduced bills that would either repeal the so-called SAFE Act or modify it, such as allowing homeowners to have 10 bullets, instead of seven, in a handgun at home.

  Critics said the law was hastily passed in the middle of the night in January 2013 and needs to be revisited. For example, a federal judge has ruled the seven-bullet limit as unconstitutional, and police aren’t enforcing it. The law is also being fought in court.

  Gov. Andrew Cuomo championed the law in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., school shooting in 2012, and he’s shown no interest in major changes. Some Democrats said they want to make the law stronger, while gun-rights advocates held numerous protests calling for its repeal.

  Republicans, who took a majority in the state Senate this month, said they would press for changes.

” I think the time is right for, if not outright repeal, then certainly modifications to the SAFE Act, and I’m hopeful we are going to see some movement on it in the new session,” said Sen. Phil Boyle, R-Suffolk County, who is sponsoring the “Defend Our Homes Act.”

  Since the law took effect in March 2013, there were 3,930 arrests as of mid-December under the various SAFE Act offenses, state records obtained by Gannett’s Albany Bureau showed.

  The overwhelmingly majority of the arrests — 3,230 — were in New York City, mainly in the Bronx and Brooklyn. Outside the city, the most were on Long Island and then Monroe County, where there were 69 arrests, records shows.

  There were 53 arrests under the SAFE Act in Erie County, 34 in Westchester County and 14 in Broome County.

  The most — 3,173 — were for criminal possession of a firearm, which was made a felony under the law. Of the total arrests, 2,409 were in 2014.”

 

 

 

    We won’t hold our breath over this one . In reality is changing the allowable pistol magazine capacity from 7 rounds to 10 any kind of significant reform ? We don’t think so especially since a Federal court has already ruled that provision of the law is unconstitutional .

   The only legitimate “reform” to the SAFE Act is outright repeal given that the law was another example of a Democratic majority pulling the wool over their constituents eyes with a rushed , dead of the night vote , shades of Obamacare

” On Tuesday night, PBS aired its latest Frontline documentary aimed at attacking the NRA entitled “Gunned Down: The Power of the NRA.” On multiple occasions, the program did its best to promote the activities of anti-gun activists while discrediting the efforts of the NRA to protect the Second Amendment. 

  Throughout the hour long special, Frontline reporter Jim Gilmore highlighted several mass shootings over the past three decades, and the program expressed dismay at how the NRA could continue to successfully promote its agenda despite several high-profile shootings in America.

  Gilmore introduced the NRA special by discussing the shooting of Gabby Giffords and President Obama’s subsequent reaction to the attempted assassination of a member of Congress. The documentary highlighted numerous individuals including Dennis Henigan, former Vice President of the Brady Campaign to prevent Gun Violence, to sympathize with President Obama’s response in the wake of the shooting.: 

  The President was extremely compassionate. He was enormously eloquent. But he did everything in his power to avoid using the word “gun” in the wake of that shooting.”

Terrorist Killer US Military GAU 19B 50 Cal Gatling Gun

 

 

 

Published on Oct 27, 2014

” Another great weapon for the US military and us army. Could prove useful in combating terrorists in Iraq and Syria. The GECAL 50, officially designated by the United States military as the GAU-19/A, is an electrically driven Gatling gun that fires the .50 BMG (12.7×99mm) cartridge.

Technical specifications

  The GAU-19/A is designed for a linkless feed, but can be fed from a standard M9 linked belt if a delinker feeder is used. The rate of fire is selectable to be either 1,000 or 2,000 rounds per minute. The Humvee armament kit version fires at 1,300 rounds per minute. The average recoil force when firing is 500 pounds-force (2.2 kN). In January 2012, General Dynamics announced they would be delivering a new version designated the GAU-19/B. It provides the same firepower in a lighter platform, weighing 106 lbs.[1]
History

  The GECAL 50 was first manufactured by General Electric, then by Lockheed Martin, and now by General Dynamics. Design work began in 1982. Early prototypes had six barrels, but a three-barreled configuration is now standard. The GAU-19/A was originally designed as a larger, more potent version of the M134 Minigun. Due to the loss of nine helicopters in Grenada GE started building prototypes of the weapon in both a three-barreled and a six-barreled configuration. The six-barreled version was designed to fire 4,000 rpm, and could be adapted to fire up to 8,000 rpm. The GAU-19 takes 0.4 seconds to reach maximum firing rate.[2] Soon it was recommended as a potential armament for the V-22 Osprey.[3] The magazine would be located underneath the cabin floor and could be reloaded in-flight. However, plans to mount the gun were later dropped.[4] In 2005, the GAU-19/A was approved to be mounted on the OH-58D Kiowa helicopter. It also could have been used on the Army’s now cancelled ARH-70.[5] In January 2012, the U.S. Army ordered 24 GAU-19/B versions for use on helicopters. All were delivered by the next month.[1]

  In 1999, the United States sent 28 GAU-19s to Colombia.[6] Oman is known to use the GAU-19/A mounted on their HMMWVs. The navy of Mexico uses MDH MD-902 series helicopters with the GAU-19/A system mounted for anti-narcotics operations.[7]

Gatling Gun History

  The Gatling gun is one of the best-known early rapid-fire weapons and a forerunner of the modern machine gun. Invented by Richard Gatling, it is known for its use by the Union forces during the American Civil War in the 1860s, which was the first time it was employed in combat. Later it was used in the Boshin War, the Anglo-Zulu War and still later in the assault on San Juan Hill during the Spanish-American War.[1]

  The Gatling gun’s operation centered on a cyclic multi-barrel design which facilitated cooling and synchronized the firing/reloading sequence. Each barrel fired a single shot when it reached a certain point in the cycle, after which it ejected the spent cartridge, loaded a new round, and in the process, allowed the barrel to cool somewhat. This configuration allowed higher rates of fire to be achieved without the barrel overheating.
History

Patent drawing for R.J. Gatling’s Battery Gun, 9 May 1865.

  The Gatling gun was designed by the American inventor Dr. Richard J. Gatling in 1861 and patented on November 4, 1862.[2][3] Gatling wrote that he created it to reduce the size of armies and so reduce the number of deaths by combat and disease, and to show how futile war is.[4]
Although the first Gatling gun was capable of firing continuously, it required a person to crank it; therefore it was not a true automatic weapon. The Maxim gun, invented in 1884, was the first true fully automatic weapon, making use of the fired projectile’s recoil force to reload the weapon. Nonetheless, the Gatling gun represented a huge leap in firearm technology.

  Prior to the Gatling gun, the only weapons available to militaries capable of firing many projectiles in a short space of time were mass-firing volley weapons like the French Reffye mitrailleuse in 1870–1871, or field cannons firing canister, much like a very large shotgun. The latter were widely used during and after the Napoleonic Wars. Although the maximum rate of fire was increased by firing multiple projectiles simultaneously, these weapons still needed to be reloaded after each discharge, which for multi-barrel systems like the mitrailleuse was cumbersome and time-consuming. This negated much of the advantage of their high rate of fire per discharge, making them much less powerful on the battlefield. In comparison, the Gatling gun offered a rapid and continuous rate of fire without having to manually reload by opening the breech.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Russian Battle Robots Near Testing For Military Use

Military Hardware Still Flowing To Local Police After Ferguson

 

Military Arming Police

 

 

” The federal government shipped nearly 4,000 more assault rifles to local law enforcement agencies in the three months following the Ferguson riots, marking a huge surge in the amount of lethal firearms being doled out to police and sheriff’s offices.

  The Ferguson riots drew attention and criticism to the massive firepower state and local police are now able to bring to bear on their citizens, and earned scrutiny for the Pentagon project, known as the 1033 program, that helps arm many of those agencies by making surplus military equipment available to them.

  President Obama called for a review of the program, civil rights advocates said the local police had become indistinguishable from the military, and even some police departments questioned their own policies.

  But a Washington Times analysis of the first three months after the riots shows the program remains popular with law enforcement agencies throughout the country, though there have been some changes in the types of equipment that are now being offered.

  The 3,879 rifles the Pentagon shipped was an astronomical increase over the dozen rifles shipped during the same three-month period in 2013, with several police agencies taking delivery of hundreds of rifles soon after the Ferguson riots.

  Armored vehicles, which drew particular scrutiny in the riots in Ferguson and other cities, were less popular in the aftermath. The Pentagon shipped just 11 mine-resistant vehicles, or MRAPs, from Aug. 15 through Nov. 14, compared to nearly 180 in the same time period a year earlier.”

Gun Store Robber Shot Dead

 

 

” 19-year-old Latorious Walker and 17-year-old Lamar Brooks struck a Louisiana gun store twice in the same day. The armed store owner put an end to their criminal careers.

  The store owner filed a report with police after responding to a tripped alarm at his store and discovering several guns missing. Two hours later, the same alarm was tripped.

  Police say the teen robbers and the owner had a confrontation at the store as he responded to the alarm.

“ The two suspects were in a vehicle and they actually drove the vehicle at him, attempting to hit him. They hit the building and also struck him.” said Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s office PIO Capt. Craig Stansbury.”

Hi-Power

 

 

 

” Browning Hi Power

Posted by Jerry Lee

  No list of important handguns is complete without the Hi Power. Today’s gun catalogs are full of “high-capacity nines” but this was the original. With its double-stack magazine holding 13 rounds plus one in the chamber, you can see where the name “Hi Power” originated. Considered to be John Browning’s last handgun design (with final touches by Dieudonne Saive of FN), the Hi Power is considered by some to be an improved 1911. It has been used by the militaries of more than 50 countries since 1935, and still serves many to this day. The grip fits some hands better than just about any handgun and as the design approaches its 80th anniversary, it is a fine example of a full-size 9 mm. “

2014 Man Of The Year: A-10 Warthog

 

 

 

 

 

 

” There you are, an Islamic State fighter minding your own business on a crisp winter day in the suburbs of Raqqa. Perhaps it’s been a busy morning—your work on the morals patrol is always a hassle, your team leader Mahmoud will not shut up, and you hurt your hand beating that recalcitrant shopkeeper who has been selling pop music despite your stern admonitions.

  Now, you’ve got to stand duty on a checkpoint just outside of town, but it’s a quiet and peaceful spot, and you can rest a bit before getting back to the wives later in the day.

  Then, literally out of the clear blue sky, you hear the swelling roar of a jet engine. As you turn, there is a new, unfamiliar noise, the kind of noise an industrial steam engine would make if it could burp like Jessica Simpson. It sounds like this:” (see above)

” That is the noise that a 30-mm Gatling gun makes, firing 3,900 rounds per minute—or 65 depleted uranium slugs every second—from its mount on the U.S. Air Force’s ugly, slow, fat, and entirely irreplaceable A-10 Warthog. It is widely believed that the force of the gun firing actually slows the A-10 in flight. (Some say this is a myth—but life is more fun if some myths aren’t debunked.)

  Truth be told, you didn’t actually hear that noise. See, the bullets go faster than sound. But all of your compatriots within a few miles did. They should be happy for you! For over a decade now, the A-10 has been serving in the role of an online dating service, connecting jihadists with those eager 72 virgins awaiting them in heaven. It’s a Tinder for the terrorist set.

Canada Rejects U.N. Arms Treaty

 

 

 

 

” In case you didn’t know it, the U.N. Small Arms Treaty went into effect on Christmas Eve. As we’ve been saying since the treaty emerged from the bureaucratic bowels of the United Nations, it’s nothing that should get U.S. gun owners’ collective, proverbial knickers in a twist. The treaty requires signatories to conform to small arms export protocols that America has already been following. Anyway, the U.S. Senate ain’t going there. Ever. So the treaty is dead in the water here, legally speaking. And, surprisingly, in Canada as well.
