The Political Left’s Lust for Violence and the Control of Guns

Opinion By Dan Wos Author – The Political Left’s Lust for Violence and the Control of Guns USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- When I say “gun violence” doesn’t exist, some people look at me cross-eyed because the term has become so common in the media and left-wing talking points. The truth is, there’s no such thing as “gun-violence.” “Gun-violence” doesn’t exist. It is a made-up nomenclature created as a tool to demonize guns in the pursuit of more gun restrictions on lawful Americans. It’s impossibl...

library won't import

My hard drive died and had to be replaced. In preparation for this I exported my library to an external drive. However, when trying to import from that file I get the following error: G:\\calibre may 31 2020 is not valid:[Errno 22] invalid mode ('rb') or filename: u' G:\\calibre may 31 2020\\part-0025.calibre-data' So I tried copying the files to another folder on my D drive, and while doing that I got 'unknown error' on part-0025, part-0026, and part-0031. It wouldn't copy those files so I...

Confused, well overwhelmed with options.

So, I've been doing a lot of research online and in this group and I think I'm experiencing information overload. I would appreciate your help in deciding on an e-reader. This will be my first one. I've always wanted one. Now, I don't want to spend a lot and I know it will limit me. I also want a Tablet and need to replace my laptop, so spending $800 on a tablet and e-reader and then $1000 on a laptop is feasible, but I don't want to do it. I initially decided on a Kobo, then a Pocketb...

Catching Up On the PS9 Dagger With Palmetto State Armory

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- In this Brave New Age of Social Justice and Equanimity for all, we call 2020, ironically Firearm Sales keep reaching newer and newer highs (funny how that works). Intriguingly the majority of those sales are attributed to Handguns, which begs the question from the salty old weather-beaten gun gurus: Do we really need another new pistol on the market? I’m not quite that salty or old enough yet so I like to ask a different, more complicated question: If technology and m...

Below The Radar: Firearm Due Process Protection Act

Millions of law-abiding citizens submit to background checks, as intimated by the president's comment to reporters. (Dave Workman) U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- There is no denying that anti-Second Amendment extremists have wanted to keep law-abiding citizens from owning firearms. Ideally, as Sarah Brady famously put it, they want a “needs-based” licensing scheme. There have been numerous bills introduced, like the Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act, which would create such restr...

Henry: Made in America for Safety and Our National Security

Henry continues to build top-quality, all-American firearms like this Axe in .410. IMG Jim Grant U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Looking out in my driveway I see my American made pickup truck. The problem is so many of the parts in that alleged American truck were in fact made in Canada and Mexico. Then there is the foreign-made car sitting next to the truck.
