Overweight Operator

Remember me saying this? Some folks in the patriot community talk about wearing body armor, whether soft or plate.  Don’t even discuss that, don’t even consider that, if you can’t strap on a 50 pound pack and make a climb, perhaps not this difficult, but one like it. Well, they’re not talking about wearing body armor, at least not in this video, but nonetheless my counsel remains.  If you’re not in good shape, stop worrying about the hardware and get in shape.  You’re getting the cart before the...

Criticizing NRA Executives is NOT “Attacking the NRA”

Opinion The NRA was over $30 million in the red in 2017, and had an almost $50 million deficit in its pension fund. These deficits aren't due to lack of revenue, but rather irresponsible spending. USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Bless her heart, Marion Hammer just can't help herself. She just had to take a shot at me for exposing some of the financial corruption and poor decisions in the NRA and take some jabs at my dead father in the process. Don McDougal also wants to incorrectly frame my criticism...

Opinion by Gary B. Wells Texas Already Has “Extreme Risk Protection Order” Laws Texas –  -(AmmoLand.com)- Texas Governor Greg Abbott clearly indicated his lack of support for “Red Flag” or “Extreme Risk Protection Orders” after the Texas Senate Select Committee on Violence in School and School Security hearings last July. Still, uninformed, anti-gun Texas legislators plan to present bills for such laws this coming year. These legislators ignore the simple fact that Texas already has procedur...

Critical Update: Major Blow to Iowa RKBA Amendment Efforts

Critical Update: Major Blow to Iowa RKBA Amendment Efforts USA – -(Ammoland.com)- My fellow Iowans, I have unexpected and bad news to report. A short time ago, I learned that all progress to add your Right to Keep and Bear Arms to the Iowa Constitution appears to have been undone. Amending the Iowa Constitution is an extremely long and challenging task. The process to do this is laid out in Article 10 of the state constitution and among those requirements is a mandate for public notification....

Hello from Kansas

I found this forum by following links after a search for "SVG charts." Then I followed links from a very nice wiki to this forum. I'm a dabbler. I like creating eBooks. I like stories and art and being creative. I hope to retire in late June and I'm looking for a place to hang out sometimes. I currently work in publications, for a small state agency. We started doing some of our publications in EPUB format a few years ago and I've learned just enough to know there is a LOT more to learn.

On the recent NRA hate

From the pro gun side, you should read this regarding the bump stock ban: The language in the legislative ban included binary triggers, cranks, etc., and could also at some point be interpreted by ATF to include ANY aftermarket trigger and even be mangled to include semi-autos in general as having the capability to have rates of fire similar to machine guns and thus, be regulated. It would be a disaster. NRA pushed back hard, but guess whatthe legislators were reacting to public sentiment, and t...
