Being a New Gun Owner – What I Wish I Knew When I Started

Below the Radar: The Multiple Firearm Sales Reporting Modernization Act of 2019 U.S.A.– -(AmmoLand.com)- These are strange times. Few of us thought we’d ever be here. This year, 8 million new gun owners joined the more than a hundred million existing firearms owners. We’ve all been that new guy at one time or another. Fortunately, there is a place for everyone in the gun culture. Here are some of the things I wish I knew when I chose a firearm and started learning self-defense. Some of these ...

It is Easy to Steal an Election, but Impossible to Hide the Theft

It is Easy to Steal an Election, but Impossible to Hide the Theft, iStock-1154438278 U.S.A.– -(AmmoLand.com)- Suppose you want to insert fraudulent votes so your favorite candidate wins an election. You can overcount your candidate’s votes. You can delete your opponent’s votes. You can shift votes from your opponent to your candidate. Each of these acts leaves a telltale mark. The fraudsters thought they were safe because we wouldn’t look. They thought the election was over when the mainstrea...

Feeling the Weight of the Gun

Scholarship Deadline approaching for FASTER Utah School Defense Program U.S.A.– -(AmmoLand.com)- I recently took a handgun class. I was there to renew my concealed carry license, but the rest of my classmates were applying for their carry license for the first time. Several of them had only shot a gun a few times. You could see it in their eyes. They were there to learn how to handle a handgun, a lethal tool. There is a lot to learn. This is a time of unprecedented demand for firearms. Given ...

The Nationwide Poll We Believe – You Must Protect Yourself

Interest in self-defense has gone up exponentially since COVID-19 and nation-wide riots. IMG NRA-ILA U.S.A.– -(AmmoLand.com)- Pollsters call me and ask me leading questions. More than ever, I refuse to answer. I leave them guessing because this is an election year. I don’t want to be targeted by political advertisements from now until the election. In contrast, there is a massive public poll that I do believe. This poll takes hours to answer and the participants actually have to pay to regist...

Gun Control Fails Again – Same Lie, Different Day

Survival of the Republic & Sovereign People: Armed Citizenry – Part Three U.S.A.– -(AmmoLand.com)- The propaganda of gun-control just got harder. Millions of honest citizens in the USA saw pictures of our inner cities in flames. They heard rioters say they wanted to spread that violence across the country. We read stories of the police being ambushed and killed while Democrat politicians called to defund the police. Millions of us went out and bought a gun for the first time. That makes it ha...

Your Rights Come Before Politics

Gun Control Costs Lives in Ohio, iStock-884221290 U.S.A.– -(AmmoLand.com)- Politics are real. Politics sets priorities between competing public interests. The process is never perfect. It gets ugly when existing political interests work against your individual rights. Let’s take an easy example first. Suppose you want to gather people together and voice your opinions. The government says you need a permit for a public gathering. The rationale is that we don’t want several groups trying to use...

The Racism and Bigotry the Left Desperately Wants to Ignore

U.S.A.– -(AmmoLand.com)- Look at us. Consider Los Angeles, Oakland, Boston, New York City, Trenton, and Baltimore. For good reason, each would call themselves a Democrat-controlled city. They have not had a Republican majority on their city councils in decades. Despite their words to the contrary, these cities are openly racist when it comes to fundamental human rights. The political left doesn’t want to talk about it, but it is strikingly easy to prove. Discover it for yourself if you have d...

What Should We Do When Government Bureaucrats Kill?

As Detroit's justified homicide rate spikes 35 percent, overall homicide totals declined 6 percent in 2014. U.S.A.– -(AmmoLand.com)- We saw armed police officers raid the wrong house and kill innocent people in their beds. That happened most recently in a home in Louisville, Kentucky. There, three undercover cops shot 26-year-old Breonna Taylor to death during a midnight raid as she lay asleep. In this case, the police were at the wrong address and were seeking a criminal who’d been arrested ...

We are also in the third week of “defunding the police”. We watched the news and saw situations that could pose an immediate, lethal, and unavoidable threat to ourselves or our family. Millions of us decided to buy a gun for personal protection. The great news is that millions of new gun owners acted responsibly. They found out th...

Teaching New Gun Owners to Cheat and Survive

Train early. Train often. U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- 2020 is unusual. We added millions of new gun owners each month. Gun ownership has been increasing for years, but 2020 is remarkable. Millions of us bought firearms when government failed. We saw the police withdraw because of an epidemic. We saw courts put criminals back on the streets. We saw government officials overwhelmed by protests, riots, looting, and arson. We realized that we are on our own to defend ourself and defend the people und...

Facts and Perspective on the Pandemic of 2020

One third of coronavirus deaths in green, one third in yellow, and one third in red U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- We think our models of the world are more real than the world itself. That is understandable since we can play with our simple models, while the real world is awash in complexity. We ignore what we don’t understand. We shut down civilization because a model of the coronavirus said we were in danger. The facts matter, but we need more than facts and figures and the lastest models to fee...

Should You be a Slave to My Fears?

Shopkeeper Arrested in Arizona U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Is it your fault that I’m afraid? Maybe it is your duty to obey me until I feel better. Your rights end where my feelings begin, and I’m afraid of a virus, afraid of guns, and afraid of freedom. That is why you have to do what I tell you to do. Or not. Should you be a slave to my fears? This so-called “epidemic” is a wakeup call. More people will die from addictions and suicide than from Covid-19. Are we going to let someone take our f...

Did Shelter in Place Save Lives or Cost Them?, iStock-1213378005 U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Covid-19 might kill 100 thousand of us in the US, but maybe not. We still have hope that it will kill far fewer. What we do know is that putting 200 million people under a relaxed house-arrest costs lives too. We have to ask if shelter-in-place saved lives or cost them. Who gets to decide that more young addicts committing suicide was worth it in order to have fewer old people die in nursing homes? You ...

This Isn’t a Public Health Problem, iStock-1213378005 U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Politicians said we can't go to work because of a public health emergency. That doesn’t make sense. The actions of our politicians don’t match their words. If we release violent criminals from jail, and then jail peaceful shop owners, then this isn’t a public health problem. If cops who are not wearing a mask, arrest you for not wearing a mask, then this isn’t a public health problem. Arrested for not wearing a...

Politicians turned the flu into a political weapon. Now, small business owners face bankruptcy if they stay home, or jail if they open their shops.

Videos on Safe Firearm Storage for New Gun Owners

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- You would have called me a madman if I’d predicted these events last Christmas. In early 2020, we saw sentencing reform. That meant people could steal up to $950 worth of merchandise per day and the thief would only be issued a ticket. We saw bail eliminated for so-called “non-violent offenses”, so bank robbers who were arrested this morning would be released this afternoon. Across the country, we saw empty store shelves for the first time in our lives due to fear of ...

Ohio Judges are Out to Lunch While Kids are Out of School

FASTER in the Schools U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Few of us think very well, and sadly, that weakness applies to judges too. Two Ohio judges recently rendered a decision. They told the three thousand school staff members who were trained as first responders that they can no longer bring their firearms to school unless they pass police officer training. I’m not sure what problem this ruling was trying to solve. We have many school-years of experience with volunteer armed school staff in Ohio. So ...

Yes, You Need a Gun During the Virus Scare..and After

Yes, You Need a Gun During the Virus Scare..and After U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- You want to have a gun before you need it. Advocates of armed defense have been saying that for decades, though recent events underlined their point. Last month, sentencing reforms in some states effectively decriminalized theft under about 900$. We saw stores stripped by flash-mobs of shoplifters. Police refused to investigate a “misdemeanor” crime even though the total loss may be tens-of-thousands of dollars. Th...
