The Gun Box Redefines Accessible Handgun Storage

 

The Gun Box

 

” Handgun storage for home protection just got a face lift, and it’s called The Gun Box.”

 

 

 

” The Gun Box is a revolutionary way for gun owners to store handguns nearby safely and securely, while allowing users access at lightning speeds. The unit is portable, sports a sleek, modern design and can only be opened by you.”

 

 

 

 

” There are three models currently available: the RF ($279), Biometric ($299) and Premier ($475) models. The way the RF model works is through an RFID scanner on The Gun Box, which responds to an RFID chip embedded in a specially made Gun Box wristband. Simply waving the wristband in front of the scanner opens The Gun Box.”

Ten Tips To Make Docking Easy And Safe

 

 

” Docking a boat can be a dreaded task for any boater. No matter the size of the boat, the current or the wind, it’s close-quarters maneuvering that takes the most gelcoat from boats. But it doesn’t have to be that way if you follow these simple rules.

1. Never approach a dock any faster than you want to hit it. Some captains like to hot-dog around, showing how efficiently they can shift and throttle, but even the best of them can be tripped up — either by misjudging distance, drift and vector, or by stalling their engines at shifting points, rendering the boat a helpless victim of its undirected momentum. A slow, steady approach is the sign of an experienced, steady skipper.

2. Never approach a docking situation without a plan. Perfect planning makes for perfect performance. It’s as simple as that.”

” The U.S. Coast Guard is asking all boat owners and operators to help reduce fatalities, injuries, property damage, and associated healthcare costs related to recreational boating accidents by taking personal responsibility for their own safety and the safety of their passengers. Essential steps include: wearing a life jacket at all times and requiring passengers to do the same; never boating under the influence (BUI); successfully completing a boating safety course; and getting a Vessel Safety Check (VSC) annually from local U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, United States Power Squadrons(r), or your state boating agency’s Vessel Examiners. The U.S. Coast Guard reminds all boaters to “Boat Responsibly!” For more tips on boating safety, visit www.uscgboating.org. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New York State Exposed: Is The SAFE Act Driving Businesses Out Of NY?

” Gun retailers and manufacturers say the SAFE Act is having a negative impact. 

Joseph Palumbo owns Albion Gun Shop in Albion. He says since the SAFE Act went into effect earlier this year, he has lost 40 to 50 percent of business.  He and his family have considered moving out of state.

Palumbo said, “I don’t want to leave, this is where I live, this is my home, but I have to do what I have to do to survive.”

Amanda Ciavarri asked, “What would you say to the hundreds of people who say hundreds, maybe thousands of jobs in upstate New York, have been lost because of the New York State SAFE Act? It’s driving gun retailers and gun manufacturers across the boarder to Pennsylvania.” 

Governor Cuomo said,  “I don’t think that’s correct on the facts.”

Cuomo’s main reason for the SAFE Act has been safety. But, is this the solution? A study from the  Center for Disease Control and Prevention, which aims at the reducing the threat of gun violence, says gun restrictions don’t necessarily prevent violence. The study suggests better policing and targeting certain areas works. The SAFE Act passed 43 to 18 in the New York Senate, but 52 counties including Monroe, Ontario, Wayne have passed resolutions opposing the SAFE Act. Ten counties have not.”

   As the above graph clearly shows , dangers of gun violence and murder in the New York is a myth . The crime rates have been plummeting even as gun ownership has skyrocketed , since Rudy Giuliani instituted the “broken windows” policy in the early nineties . The need for the government to ban legal firearms ownership is a misleading effort to consolidate power with the State and has nothing at all to do with “safety” .

From The Department Of Petty Controversies: Schools Cancel Halloween

 

 

 

” In the latest example of small-mindedness plaguing our educational system, schools around the country are attempting to ban costumes and candy on what is surely one of most kids’ favorite days of the year. The excuses range from vague concerns about “safety” to specific worries about food allergies to—get this—fears of breaching the wall of separation between church and state.

But whatever the motivation, the end result is the same as what Charlie Brown used to get every time he went trick-or-treating: a big old rock in the candy bag. What sort of lesson are we teaching our kids when we ban even a tiny, sugar-coated break in their daily grind (or, even worse, substitute a generic, Wicker Man-style “Fall Festival” for Halloween)? Mostly that we are a society that is so scared of its own shadow that we can’t even enjoy ourselves anymore. We live in fear of what might be called the killjoy’s veto, where any complaint is enough to destroy even the least objectionable fun.”

Safety Alert For All Smith & Wesson Shield Pistols (VIDEO)

 

 

” Reports of distributors and dealers being told to halt sales of Smith & Wesson M&P Shield pistols are flying all over the Internet, leading many to believe a recall is pending.

Fortunately, it appears the problem could be limited. Smith & Wesson has posted a “safety alert” regarding a specific malfunction of the concealed-carry pistols’ triggers.

That being said, the flaw could affect any M&P Shield manufactured prior to Aug. 19, 2013, so it may be present on essentially every Shield ever made currently on the market.

“We believe this condition is largely limited to recently manufactured M&P Shield pistols. However, out of an abundance of caution, we are asking all consumers of all M&P Shields manufactured before Aug. 19, 2013 to immediately inspect their pistols for this condition.” “

22 Things to Outlaw Before We Ban Assault Rifles

 

 

House-Fire

 

” 4. Fire

According to the U.S. Fire Administration, there are an average of 375 deaths each year caused by arson, which is more than the number of people killed by all rifles. We should probably outlaw lighters, matches, and gasoline to fight the problem.”

 

 

” By the logic of gun-control proponents, firearms are the problem and not the people misusing them. Therefore, we have a lot more banning to do in addition to outlawing assault rifles, which Joe Biden promised was “just the beginning.”

In 2011, all rifles combined accounted for 323 murders, while shotguns were used in 356 murders; this in a country of 300 million people. So it only stands to reason that if banning rifles and shotguns are an effective way to fight crime, then handguns need to go too: they were used in 6,220 murders. Once citizens allow the premise that objects are responsible for crime and not people, there’s no end to the absurdity of government bans.

For further context, here are some other leading causes of deaths in the United States, according to the CDC: Heart disease: 597,689; Cancer: 574,743; Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 138,080; Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 129,476; Accidents (unintentional injuries): 120,859; Alzheimer’s disease: 83,494; Diabetes: 69,071; Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 50,476; and Influenza and Pneumonia: 50,097.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, governments have been responsible for over 200 million murders. Simply put, governments cannot be trusted; either in the present or in the future. That is why we have constitutionally limited government that is restricted from disarming the public.”

 

REPUBLICANS MUST FORCE DEMOCRATS TO OWN GUN CONTROL

 

 

 

 

 

” Guns will be the key issue in 2014, good news for the pro-2nd Amendment Republican Party, which has Democrats backed into a corner in an untenable position on gun control.

Universal background checks are insidious, and the legislation the Senate is considering in April will not only force even secondary gun sales to be done through the auspices of a government representative with a Federal Firearm Licence but will also ban private gun sales and create a national gun registry.

This means it will bar grandpas from passing their favorite rifle to their grandsons and will require the government to create a list of every gun owner and every gun owned in America in order to be enforceable.

Universal background check legislation has made it this deep into the legislative process for one reason only–namely, because these implications have not been explained to the American people. Republicans need to explain these dangers and force Democrats to own gun control in 2014.”

What Every Legislator – And Citizen – Needs to Know

” No one wants to ever again see anything like the senseless slaughter of 26 people – including 20 children – at a school. But as legislators turn toward creating new gun laws, here are five facts they need to know.

1. Violent crime – including violent crime using guns – has dropped massively over the past 20 years.

The violent crime rate – which includes murder, rape, and beatings – is half of what it was in the early 1990s. And the violent crime rate involving the use of weapons has also declined at a similar pace.

2. Mass shootings have not increased in recent years.

Despite terrifying events like Sandy Hook or last summer’s theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, mass shootings are not becoming more frequent. “There is no pattern, there is no increase,” says criminologist James Allen Fox of Northeastern University, who studies the issue. Other data shows that mass killings peaked in 1929.”

Report Debunks Damon Fracking Movie

 

 

 ” The analysis and other health assessments have been closely guarded by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and his administration as the governor weighs whether to approve fracking. Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, has long delayed making a decision, unnerved in part by strident opposition on his party’s left. A plan to allow a limited amount of fracking in the state’s Southern Tier along the Pennsylvania border is still seen as the most likely outcome, should the drilling process receive final approval.

The New York governor is considered to be a potential 2016 contender. Cuomo has known about the report for months as he considered approving fracking. Fracking is a difficult issue for a Democrat considering a presidential future.

News of the report comes as Hollywood takes a tough stand on the issue.Matt Damon’s Promised Land, a movie about local, rural resistance to fracking, was released in December. The movie has not been received well and is currently rated “rotten.” “

 

 

Also bare in mind that fracking isn’t new :

 

 

http://mixplex.com/frack_files/gashist1.jpg

 

 

” Since Stanolind Oil introduced hydraulic fracturing in 1949, close to 2.5 million fracture treatments have been performed worldwide. Some believe that approximately 60% of all wells drilled today are fractured. Fracture stimulation not only increases the production rate, but it is credited with adding to reserves—9 billion bbl of oil and more than 700 Tscf of gas added since 1949 to US reserves alone—which otherwise would have been uneconomical to develop.

In addition, through accelerating production, net present value of reserves has increased. Fracturing can be traced to the 1860s, when liquid (and later, solidified) nitroglycerin (NG) was used to stimulate shallow, hard rock wells in Pennsylvania, New York, Kentucky, and West Virginia. Although extremely hazardous, and often used illegally, NG was spectacularly successful for oil well “shooting.” The object of shooting a well was to break up, or rubblize, the oil-bearing formation to increase both initial flow and ultimate recovery of oil. This same fracturing principle was soon applied with equal effectiveness to water and gas wells.”

The makings of a police state are all around us . This is just the tip of the iceberg . The terrorists are winning . Even without a major attack in over a decade they have managed to get us to approve of the erosion of our own liberties in the name of “public safety” .As Benjamin Franklin said ” Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. “
