Who Needed an AR-15 Rifle? These Folks

Who Needed an AR-15? These Folks. Connecticut/United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- Recently, anti-Second Amendment extremist Chris Murphy, a Senator from Connecticut, tweeted two of the usual canards that emerge when anti-Second Amendment fanatics want to push a semi-auto ban. He claimed that nobody needs a semi-automatic rifle for hunting or personal protection, and that the only person who needed a semi-automatic rifle was a mass shooter. Well, to be honest, that tweet went beyond usual canard...

Kiwis Rush to NZ Gun Shops in Anticipation of New Gun Laws

Opinion While some New Zealanders are turning in guns to police, others are rushing to gun shops to buy semi-auto rifles in anticipation of new gun control laws. (Dave Workman) USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Instead of rushing to turn in their guns in the aftermath of the double mosque attacks in Christchurch, reports from New Zealand indicate that many of the island nation’s citizens are actually rushing to gun stores in the anticipation of a ban that might be coming from Prime Minister Jacinda Ard...

America’s Gun-Haters Are Only Biding Their Time

Opinion Nobody needs an AR-15 to hunt. Nobody needs a semi-automatic rifle to defend their home. But mass shooters NEED these weapons in order to murder as many people as efficiently as possible. And so nobody will miss them when they are illegal – except for the killers. — Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) March 16, 2019 USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The Paradigm Shift We all know what they want, the gun-grabbers that is. They tell us, just not in so many words. Sometimes you have to dig a little deep...

Suddenly New Zealand Becomes Nation Of ‘Sheeple’

(Screen snip, YouTube, CBC) New Zealand – -(AmmoLand.com)- Sheep ranching is big business in New Zealand, but after perusing news coverage in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque attacks, it may be difficult to tell the sheep from the people as some gun owners have voluntarily turned in their semiautomatic rifl...

Identifying Killers Can be Overdone but is Sometimes Needed

What does obscuring killers' faces really accomplish — besides virtue signaling and looking stupid, to boot? U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Should media avoid naming the gunmen in mass shootings?” an Associated Press follow-up on the New Zealand mosque murders asks. “Criminologists who study mass shootings say the vast majority of shooters are seeking infamy and soak up the coverage as a guide.” It’s nice to see our “news” organizations finally catching up. Gun owner rights advocates have been pl...

Run, Hide Or Fight, NZ Hero Abdul Aziz Choose To Fight ~ VIDEO

Opinion NZ Resident and Hero, Abdul Aziz USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The following is an old article I wrote back in 2007 that I have updated in reverence to the evil shooting at two Muslim houses of worships in the nation of New Zealand. As an Air Force lieutenant, I was sent to Fort Benning, Georgia, and trained to be an Army Infantry officer. During the patrolling phase of training, we learned how to set up an ambush and stop the enemy cold as they walked past. We also learned that the enemy ...

U.S. Media Should Learn a Lesson, STOP Sharing Mass Killers Names & Faces

Opinion Most recent Shooter Blurred on Judge's Order U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)-There is one thing that most mass shooters have in common. It isn't the . It is their desire to be known even if that means they are infamous. It all started when the Columbine killers had their names and faces plastered on every network across the globe. This media frenzy is the notoriety that they wanted and in death, the media awarded them their ultimate goal. Last week there was a brutal attack in Christchurch ...

NZ Christchurch Shooter Illustrates The Evils Of White Nationalism ~ VIDEO

“We, New Zealand, we were not a target because we are a safe harbor for those who hate. We were not chosen for this act of violence because we condone racism.” Fayetteville, AR – -(AmmoLand.com)- The terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing forty-nine and wounding many others, illustrates once again as if we needed a new example, of the horrors that extremist hatred can perpetrate.

Opinion New Zealand Mass Murderer's Primary Goals: Gun Control in the United States Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- -The mass murderer in New Zealand was not an ordinary active shooter.

Pleasings...in a week when I think we'll need them.

Thank you for all those wonderful comments on my last scribble and doesn't the world work in such mysterious ways...that I had written and pre-scheduled those thoughts on Skybound and South Island on the very day that the world's heart and mind was taken there as of one, in solidarity with New Zealand and Christchurch. My feeling and real hope, and I have to be optimistic in the face of such carnage, is that perhaps this might just be a turning point. Jacinda Ardern, the New Zealand Prime Minist...

NZ shooter promoting gun control

From the New Zealand lunatic’s manifesto: I chose firearms for the affect it would have on social discourse, the extra media coverage they would provide and the affect it could have on the politics of United states and thereby the political situation of the world. The US is torn into many factions by its second amendment, along state, social, cultural and, most importantly, racial lines. With enough pressure the left wing within the United states will seek to abolish the second amendment, and th...

The Cambridge Guide to English Usage

So, as noted in another thread, I purchased a copy of The Cambridge Guide to English Usage by Pam Peters, published by Cambridge University Press, 2004. (Link to ebook edition.) I think it's an interesting enough publication to be worthy of a thread here. This is a UK publication, but it makes a brave attempt to cover English usage at an international level. It notes regional variances (American, Australian, British, Canadian, New Zealand, South African and "Standard" - whatever that is) and ...

10 Easy Pieces: The Mohair Throw Blanket (A Stylist’s Secret Weapon)

Whenever I’m on a shoot, the one prop I cannot live without is a mohair throw. Other interiors stylists I know can confirm: the mohair throw is crucial. Mohair, woven from angora goat and wool, has a great texture. You can toss it on the end of a bed or over the arm of a sofa and it falls just right and scrunches even better. Plus, mohair is dyed in the best colors: chalky grey, vegetal green, or not-too-millennial pink. Whether you’re styling a room for a photograph or just as a start the day, ...

Portlandia: Inside the Remodeled Farmhouse of a Cult Favorite Ceramicist

We’ve been fans of Portland, Oregon-based Notary Ceramics—the project of ceramicist Sarah Van Raden—ever since she exhibited at our Portland Market a few years back. Since then, her vessels and artful flower frogs have popped up everywhere, well beyond the Pacific Northwest. But becoming one of the country’s cult favorite ceramicists was not always the plan. Van Raden first took a pottery class in college, but didn’t go near a wheel again until a decade later, when she signed up for a class at a...

Firearms Mufflers – Politics Trumps Safety

SilencerCo Releases Quietest .22 Suppressor to Hit the Market U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- This will be our epitaph if the US fails as a country; “We wanted to stop doing stupid things…but we were addicted to money and power.” The list of our stupid government actions is endless, but the regulation of firearms mufflers has to be near the top of the list. I didn’t believe it until I heard it with my own ears. We should be shouting for muffler deregulation. I’ve worked around equipment that was s...

Each piece is baked a first time, then is coated with a second coat of enamel before being subjected to a second baking. During the second firing, the applied coating melts to cre...
