” The repetitive power of the gif makes it a perfect way to learn how simple machines work. We saw that with these awesome gifs that break down the mechanics of engines and handguns, and we see it again here with the silencer.

  SilencerCo posted this big infographic on its site, explaining not only how the piece suppresses the noise of gunfire but also just how many silencers there are around the country and the world.”

Wyoming Governor Signs Hunting With Suppressors Bill Into Law

 

 

 

” On Monday, Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead signed Senate File 132 into law; a bill that allows hunters to use legally owned suppressors to hunt all varmint, big game and trophy animals.

The law takes effect on July 1, 2013, making Wyoming the 28th state to permit the use of silencers for hunting.  Currently, silencers are legal for citizens to own in 39 states.

Prior to being singed into law by the Governor, SF132 was approved by favorable majorities in both the state House and Senate, which respectively voted 44 to 14 and 23 to 7 in support of the bill.

Naturally, the American Silencer Association, which is pushing to have similar bills passed in Montana, Georgia and Vermont this year, applauded the decision.”


5 Ridiculous Gun Myths Everyone Believes (Thanks to Movies)

 

 

” Even in gun-crazy America, most of us aren’t shooting things as part of our day-to-day routine. So most Americans actually know very little about guns. Hollywood writers realized this a long time ago and, being writers, used it as an excuse to never do any fact-checking ever again. ”

 

#5.Silencers Turn Gunfire Into a Gentle Whisper

 

Where You’ve Seen It:

In The Line Of Fire, Die Hard 2, No Country For Old Men, Shooter, practically every James Bond movie.

The Myth:

Cautious spies and assassins know that if you’re going to take out a bad guy in an office or a library, be sure to use a silencer. It turns the concussive “bang” into a neutered “ptew.”


Above: Stealth.

Itty-bitty handguns aren’t the only things you can silence. Giant freaking shotguns can even be fitted with a special silencer that renders them inaudible in quiet suburban neighborhoods.

Also, while silencers look all slick and expensive and fancy, Hollywood says pretty much any long, hollow tube will do the job. Grab a two-liter, stuff it with socks or something, and you can be just as dangerous as Mark Wahlberg in Shooter.

 

 

 

 

 

Read the finest essay on the history of the gun-banners , their thought-processes , their methods and their dishonesty in pursuit of their political agenda . Despite being repeatedly rebuffed by the facts , they continue to strive for the total elimination of privately held firearms . This piece , written by a self-avowed ” leftist gun enthusiast ” is one of the most cogent , balanced , succinct , yet thorough essays ever put forth on the subject of the ” assault ” weapons ban and the endless toying with the English language required to make it all come about it the first place . Remember , as a man of some note in recent times once said ” it depends on what your definition of “is” is ” . This piece should be read by EVERYONE …

Kontradictions

[EDIT: After this article was published, the Democratic party officially added support of the assault weapon ban renewal to their party platform and it was reintroduced in the following Senate session in the hopes that Newtown would help it push through. It died.]

Between Two Worlds

It’s not easy being a leftist who loves guns. It’s like being a Republican who listens to NPR or supports single payer health care. But being a leftist, I get exposed to all the liberal publications and media that invariably call for gun control every time someone does something stupid with one. Being a gun enthusiast, I also get exposed to the political Right’s oversimplification of those liberals as somehow lacking moral fiber or true appreciation of freedom. Rather than agreeing with both, I tend to end up arguing with both. It’s exhausting to always feel like I’m apologizing for the other “side”.
