Gun Thread (5-5-2013)

4th Circuit Rules Open Carry Isn't Probable Cause

Interesting case. The person whose sentence was vacated was actually violating some laws (at least possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and concealed carry with no license), but the court held that he was illegally searched.

You mean the police just can't frisk you because you look suspicious? Who knew?


WaPo's Lame Hit Piece On Wayne LaPierre

Obviously timed to coincide with the NRA Annual Meeting, the Washington Post trotted out a ridiculous hit on Wayne LaPierre on Friday.

The legislative changes that LaPierre supported as the NRA’s chief lobbyist in the mid-1980s opened the door to the import of military-surplus weapons, which effectively had been banned for two decades. The legislation helped make a new, more powerful class of firearms more readily available to civilian gun owners and begin to shift the profile of American gun ownership.

You know what gun the eeevillll Wayne LaPierre was trying to import? The M1 Garand.

The federal government has, for decades now, sold M1 Garands and other guns to the public through the Civilian Marksmanship Program. The legislative changes LaPierre supported were simply to allow a bunch of Garands stranded in Korea after the war to be brought back to the U.S. and sold to collectors here.

Go and read the whole thing for an example of a really shitty piece of anti-gun advocacy masquerading as journalism.


Gun Of The Week

Marksmanship Award



Gun Of The Week - Answer

That's the Model 1873 "Trapdoor" Springfield in .45-70. Or, as liberals call it, an AR-15.


3D Printed Gun Arrives

Defense Distributed will be hanging the files for its prototype on the web soon. They need to be downloaded heavily by everyone and tinkered with if you have an aptitude.

"Gun control" is idiotic. A gun is just a simple machine, and anyone who wants one will always be able to get one. Kudos to Cody Wilson for pushing this point to the next level.
