AR-15

As usual media got it wrong

Now the facts are starting to come out we find out that the killer in Washington DC never had semi-automatic weapons at all…he used a pump action shotgun and stole Glock handguns from his victims.

This is why people like Piers Morgan should just stfu.

Authorities investigating Monday’s D.C. shooting spree believe the gunman brought a shotgun, legally purchased from a suburban Virginia gun shop, to the Navy Yard and acquired additional weapons at the scene, according to three law enforcement officials.

The officials said Aaron Alexis of Fort Worth, Texas, a 34-year-old discharged Navy engineer, entered the building with a Remington 870 12-gauge shotgun that he’d purchased last week in Lorton, Va., and was later found with two additional weapons, one of them a Glock handgun.

One scenario authorities were investigating was that he obtained the handgun and the other weapon at the scene, possibly from victims. But officials cautioned the evidence analysis was still very fluid Monday night.¬† Read more »

Why gun control is gay and will never work

Two days ago I posted a video of a 3d printed gun firing 600 rounds in one session.

Watch this remarkable video of the guy who has released the plans for 3d printing of the AR15 into the wild. The discussions over liberty and freedom are fascinating.

Why gun control is gay and won’t succeed

The liberal left wants to control access to guns…unfortunately for them it is a forlorn hope, technology is advancing significantly.

That is a video of 600 rounds being fired through a 3D printed AR15. Just a few months ago their first attempt failed after 6 rounds. Kelsey Atherton at PopSci explains:

The agents provocateur at Defense Distributed welcomed Congress back from recess by releasing a video of a brand new 3-D printed AR-15 receiver being used to fire multiple 100-round magazines. … The last time we saw Defense Distributed test a 3-D printed lower receiver, it broke after 6 shots. The latest video shows that it can survive a whopping 600 shots. This suggests that Defense Distributed has made significant progress toward its goal of building a working 3-D printed gun.

This is why gun control will fail…just 10 years ago it was unthinkable that you could print something simple let alone something as complex as a gun.¬† Read more »

Obama is the greatest gun salesman of all time

Obama continues to be the greatest gun salesman of all time. Ever since taking office the sales of guns have rocketed…now his talk of bans¬†and¬†the like are seeing super-profits being made in guns stores nation-wide:

As Washington focuses on what Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. will propose next week to curb gun violence, gun and ammunition sales are spiking in the rest of the country as people rush to expand their arsenals in advance of any restrictions that might be imposed.

People were crowded five deep at the tiny counter of a gun shop near Atlanta, where a pastor from Knoxville, Tenn., was among the customers who showed up in person after the store’s Web site halted sales because of low inventory. Emptying gun cases and bare shelves gave a picked-over feel to gun stores in many states. High-capacity magazines, which some state and federal officials want to ban or restrict, were selling briskly across the country: one Iowa dealer said that 30-round magazines were fetching five times what they sold for just weeks ago.

Gun dealers and buyers alike said that the rapid growth in gun sales ‚ÄĒ which began climbing significantly after President Obama‚Äôs re-election and soared after the Dec. 14 shooting at a school in Newtown, Conn., prompted him to call for new gun laws ‚ÄĒ shows little sign of abating.¬† Read more »

Some facts about Guns and why liberals calling for control are wrong

Time for some real facts about guns and gun control in the wake of calls for assault rifle bans.

You will see why the liberal wankers who call for such things are completely wrongheaded.

Fifty-five million kids went to school on the day that 20 were massacred at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. Even in the United States, therefore, the chances of a child’s dying in a school shooting are remote. As my friend Steven Pinker demonstrates in his monumental study of human violence, The Better Angels of Our Nature, our perception of danger is easily distorted by rare events. Is gun violence increasing in the United States? No. But it certainly seems to be when one recalls recent atrocities in Newtown and Aurora. In fact, the overall rate of violent crime has fallen by 22 percent in the past decade (and 18 percent in the past five years).

We still have more guns and more gun violence than any other developed country, but the correlation between guns and violence in the United States is far from straightforward. Thirty percent of urban households have at least one firearm. This figure increases to 42 percent in the suburbs and 60 percent in the countryside. As one moves away from cities, therefore, the rate of gun ownership doubles. And yet gun violence is primarily a problem in cities. It is the people of Detroit, Oakland, Memphis, Little Rock, and Stockton who are at the greatest risk of being killed by guns.

Oh, more guns in the countryside but less gun crime…boy that’s inconvenient.

AR15

Super Modified Gangster Grip

via The Firearm Blog

It is all in the way you throw the bullets:

My theory is that gangsters shoot poorly on purpose. They need to be seen to be dangerous to both their comrades and to their enemies but the cost of actually killing someone is very high (prison and/or retaliation).

If a gangster is obliged to shoot at another gangster, he is much better off not just missing but also signalling to his opponent that he is not trying to actually trying to kill him. Holding a pistol sideways like an idiot is one way to signal intent to miss. Holding an AR-15 with an EOTech while wearing a ballistic vest signals the opposite.

The practice of shooting at someone with the intention of missing goes back to the days of duels. To delope is to throw away a shot. Alexander Hamilton infamously let it be known that he intended to delope during his duel with Vice President Aaron Burr, but Burr shot him dead anyway.

See a post about politics and guns…can it get any better?

I think there is real merit in bringing back dueling in politics.

This was never going to end well

ŠĒ• Augusta Chronicle

With Silly First Name Syndrome and deciding to rob a gunshop, the plan had win written all over it.   Not.

Note the armed shop owner is still breathing…I wonder if he would have been if he had to wait for the police to arrive?

One man is dead and two are recovering after being shot by a gun store owner during a burglary of his business Thursday morning.

Stephen Bayazes Jr., 57, told officers that he and his wife were asleep in an apartment at the back of the business, Guns & Ammo Gunsmith, 522 Edgefield Road, shortly before 4 a.m. when he awoke after hearing a loud crash and the activation of a silent alarm.

Bayazes grabbed an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle and found three men loading guns into a van that had crashed through the side wall of the store.

After hearing the men yell to kill him, Bayazes shot one 30-round magazine of .223-caliber bullets before retreating to his bedroom to reload, he later told officers.

As he left the room, Bayazes saw two men drive away in the van.

K’Raven Aude Goodwin, 20, of Eastover, S.C., was wounded and left behind at the gun
shop.

Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton said Goodwin died of gunshot wounds shortly after arriving at Medical College of Georgia Hospital.

The two other suspects were found at Waffle House on Martintown Road, about three miles away. Investigators said the men, who had both been shot, stopped at the restaurant to seek help.

The only thing better than an AR is…

The only thing better than an AR is a double barreled AR:

Israeli firm Silver Shadow are said to be debuting a double barreled AR-15 next month in Paris at the Eurosatory expo.
