This is the first of a multi-part series for Gun and Game that takes a look at Second Amendment rights and relevant gun usage in the 21st Century. This article focuses on some of the issues for the current gun control debate and what could be done to resolve them.
Over the past week or so a few companies have come out stating they will no longer do business with police forces in States that ban their citizens from owning the civilian counterparts.
Olympic Arms is the latest to join this movement, releasing this statement:
Olympic Arms is a staunch believer in and defender of the Constitution of the United States, and with special attention paid to the Bill of Rights that succinctly enumerates the security of our Divinely given Rights. One of those Rights is that to Keep and Bear Arms.
Legislation recently passed in the State of New York outlaws the AR15 and many other firearms, and will make it illegal for the good and free citizens of New York to own a large selection of legal and safe firearms and magazines. We feel as though the passage of this legislation exceeds the authority granted to the government of New York by its citizens, and violates the Constitution of the United States, ignoring such SCOTUS rulings as District of Columbia v. Heller – 554, U.S. 570 of 2008, McDonald v. Chicago – 561 U.S. 3025 of 2010, and specifically the case of United States v. Miller – 307 U.S. 174 of 1939.
Due the passing of this legislation, Olympic Arms would like to announce that the State of New York, any Law Enforcement Departments, Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders within the State of New York, or any New York State government entity or employee of such an entity – will no longer be served as customers.
nce again all the media folks covering the SHOT Show have been invited out to Boulder Pistol & Rifle Range in Boulder City, Nevada minutes away from Hoover Dam. The latest and greatest is put on for testing for all that attend. (more…)
SIG is expected to show off their new MPX submachine gun. Said to be “The next generation of submachine gun”, being the submachine gun to work with a fully closed and locked rotating bolt system. The MPX uses the signature SIG Sauer short stroke gas piston system that is used on other SIG rifles currently in production.
Since the President spoke about gun control last December gun, ammo, and accessory sales have been through the roof. Mapul, the creators of the infamous polymer magazine for the AR15 and Military counterpart has been accepting backorders for the black PMag at Brownings and a few other online retailers. Rumors are that the backorder number has hit over 1 million backorders…..
Guess I won’t be seeing an iPhone 5 case from Magpul anytime soon…until then here is the Facebook status that set everything in motion today.
SHOT Show 2013 is finally here once again! I’m finishing up packing for the week long event that hopefully will set the stage for what is to come in 2013. Many companies have already begun releasing information on their new products. We’ve even begun posting some of the offerings from ATI Gun Stocks, and a few other great partners.
President Obama has announced that he will be creating two different tasks forces to look into more Gun Control, both executively and legislatively led by the Vice-President Joe Biden. Joe Biden was one of the writers of the original assault weapon in 1994. President Obama is supporting a ban on all military style assault rifles, and hi-capacity magazines. President Obama claims that a majority of American’s supports the banning of hi-capacity of magazines and military style weapons.
There it is folks, any firearm that is a military firearms, think AR15, AK47 style weapons are going through the roof and going to be like ice in the desert. Reports are already talking that .223 ammo is hard to find and the prices are going up quite a bit. AR’s have been hard to get to already due to the reelection of Obama, and now we have to watch some retailers who are price gouging such as the catastrophe Cheaper Than Dirt has currently ran into after raising the price of hi-capacity PMags.
The line in the sand has been drawn. This is what all responsible gun owners have feared since the sunset of the AWB during the Bush administration.
If you aren’t a NRA member, become one today. If you don’t want their magazines, etc make it known when you sign up. Stand tall folks this won’t be a pretty fight on your rights for gun ownership.
From Cheaper Than Dirt’s Facebook page posted around lunchtime today, Tuesday the 19th.
Cheaper Than Dirt! is suspending online sales of firearms effective immediately. We are reviewing our policy internally, and will continue to be the leader in the outdoor industry with our full line of gear and accessories.
ATI is once again previewing their new accessories coming in 2013 once their facebook pages reach a certain level of new followers. Their most recent release is Halo Side Saddle with Add-A-Shell shotgun shell holders. First coming out for the Mossberg 500 and 590 they will offer a lightweight accessory to not only beef up the look of any Mossberg 500/590 owner but add extra functionality to shooters as well.
Wisconsin based ATI Gunstocks has posted a preview of their new rail system for the VEPR series of rifles. VEPR already comes with a pretty nice wood stock, but ATI takes the AK variant to an AR tactical style look. The forearm offers a 7-sided nose cone that can anchor itself into any corner for added stability control. The forward stabilizing nose cone is made of lightweight military anodized aluminum giving the gun better maneuverability around tight spaces as well.
