  1. So, reading the top of the post states the brass is once fired, it was purchased clean. From Missouri Bullets the bullets are hard cast 18 Brinell, 140 grain, 401 diameter, also purchased:
  2. So went in to see the Vascular Surgeon Yesterday & he sent me to have a CTA ABDOMEN PELVIS WITH RUNOFF - they put an isotope/dye in your IV and map all you arteries & veins from the chest down. That stuff feels very hot when it goes in your arm and it spreads fast, they said they get one shot to get it and you have to hold your breath until they say you can breath as well as be perfectly still with that hot stuff running through you. Fortunately it only takes about 3 minutes total after it starts. Only about a minute or so of holding your breath. Well the results came back and he
  3. When I was about 9 years old, I accompanied my father to the funeral of a friend of his, someone who I didn't even know. When we got there, I stayed in a corner waiting for the time to pass. Then a man approached me and said, 'Enjoy life kid, be happy because time flies. Then he passed his hand over my head and left. My father, before leaving, forced me to say goodbye to the dead person. When I looked in the coffin, I was horrified to see that the man in the coffin was the same man who had just spoken to me! I was so traumatized I couldn't
  4. We’ve seen some surprisingly harmonious decisions from the Supreme Court over the past couple of weeks, including a 9-0 decision in favor of religious liberty and a 7-2 verdict rejecting a challenge to the Affordable Care Act for lack of standing handed down on Thursday. Behind that newfound comity, however, is conflict… at least according to POLITICO, which suggests in a new piece that the Court isn’t split 6-3 between conservative and progressive justices, but is actually split 3-3-3; with a “moderate” conservative bloc developing alongside the three liberal justices and three stalwart conse
  5. It was announced on June 16, 2021 that S. 2050: The Hearing Protection Act has been reintroduced. S 2050 aims “to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to remove silencers from the definition of firearms, and for other purposes.” The bill is sponsored by Idaho Senator Mike Crapo and co-sponsors include Senators Jim Risch (R-Idaho), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Kevin Cramer (R-North Dakota), Jerry Moran (R-Kansas), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Roger Marshall (R-Kansas), John Boozman (R-Arkansas), Shelley Moore Capito (R-West Virginia), Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas), James Lankford (R-Oklahoma), Mike Braun (R-Ind
  6. Yesterday, Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) filed a motion for preliminary injunction in its federal Second Amendment lawsuit challenging Nevada’s unconstitutional statutes enacted in Assembly Bill 286, which established a new, confiscatory ban on all unserialized, self-manufactured firearms as well as all “unfinished frames or receivers.” The filings in Palmer v. Sisolak can be found at FPCLegal.org. “Rather than enact tailored laws to address the State’s interests in reducing crime … or even addressing root causes of violent crime and social ills,” the motion for preliminary injunction o
  7. Gun control basically hinges on the idea that if you remove a weapon from the equation, you won’t have violent crime. At least, you won’t anywhere near to the degree we currently have. It seems none of these people have ever heard of any other weapon with which to kill someone other than a firearm. Yet people kill with all kinds of things. For example, more people are murdered with blunt instruments than with AR-15s every year. So it was refreshing to see a column from Ocala, Florida where the author thinks gun control efforts should be focused elsewhere. Responding to Thomas Ga
  8. In a series of tweets on June 8, Virginia Heffernan, a Harvard-educated columnist for The Los Angeles Times, wrote: “Real-estate listings should include prevalence of gun-ownership in a 50-mile radius and number of annual mass shootings in the region. Time to change what a ‘bad neighborhood’ is.” In follow-up tweets she added, “…and introduce a meaningful tax on guns and gun violence. No one should say ‘this is a great place to raise kids’ about neighborhoods where even one person has an assault rifle.” The idea is to take “race, class [and] politics out of the real estate equation.” Ther
  9. We’ve written quite a bit (here, here, here, here, and here) about how Chipman—a man who has spent the last several years as a high-profile, anti-gun lobbyist—is truly unqualified to serve as Director of ATF. But we haven’t touched on one aspect of his written testimony that has recently come to light in a number of news articles. Fox News reports that four U.S. Senators—Tom Cotton (R-AR), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Judiciary ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-IA)— each asked, in writing, whether Chipman had “ever misplace(d) or (had) his firearm stolen?” According to Fox, C
  10. On June 8, ProPublica published a story titled, “The Secret IRS Files: Trove of Never-Before-Seen Records Reveal How the Wealthiest Avoid Income Tax.” The salacious item focused on how America’s ultra-wealthy navigated the Internal Revenue Code to lessen their tax burden. ProPublica relied on “a vast cache of IRS information,” including individuals’ private tax returns, that it presumably obtained through a politically-motivated government leaker. On June 16, ProPublica published an article based on similar IRS information targeting a candidate for Manhattan District Attorney ahead of the June
  11. On Tuesday, June 22nd, attorneys from the law firm Kirkland & Ellis will argue that California’s ban on standard-capacity magazines violates the Second Amendment before an 11-judge, en-banc panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, in an NRA-backed case. Our attorneys have already successfully argued this case before a three-judge panel that struck the ban last summer. Then California requested and was granted a re-hearing before an en-banc panel of the Ninth Circuit. This action vacated the previous decision. This is not surprising as it is the fifth time that the Ninth Circuit h
