Gun licences for kindy kids

Part of me thinks this is pathetic, and the other part of me thinks the teachers have done the right thing and not simply banning it outright. We did something similar with our kids who have always had access to toy guns…it was drilled into them early that you never point a gun at another person.

On balance I think think they have done the right thing…of course noe some wowser group will mount a campaign against the kindy

At Stratford’s Avon Kindergarten kids can pick up a “gun” and shoot a possum any time they want – if they have a licence.

Head teacher Lynsi Latham-Saunders has introduced the gun-use policy after some of the 3- to 5-year-olds began using sticks as guns and pointing them at each other.  Read more »

Worlds best gun salesman and the booming gun industry

The gun industry is booming in the USA, and it’s all thanks to President Obama:

The July 2013 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figure of 855,259 is an increase of 0.2 percent over the NSSF-adjusted NICS figure of 853,355 in July 2012. For comparison, the unadjusted July 2013 NICS figure of 1,271,571 reflects a 1.4 percent decrease from the unadjusted NICS figure of 1,289,585 in July 2012. Read more »

Britain has some of the toughest gun laws in the world, how’s that working out?

In the wake of massacres in the US media people who know no better, like Piers Morgan, called for tougher gun laws, like those in the UK. How do they work in reality? Not so well it turns out.

The images of paramilitary-style policemen with assault rifles in Luton are a shocking confirmation that law and order has collapsed in parts of our country.

In an age of terrorism, we have become used to seeing armed police at major railway stations and airports, or guarding other potential targets such as embassies. But when officers with guns are needed to patrol the streets of an English town because of an upsurge in gang shootings, it seems we have reached something of a watershed in our national life.  Read more »

Girls with Guns

I fired my first shots from my dad’s Ruger Mk II pistol, which I now own, when I was three years old. My dad would take my brother and I through the woods, his scoped Remington 700 on his shoulder. Dad never missed an opportunity to take us shooting. I went from a Marlin .22 rifle to a .20 gauge Remington 870 and beyond. We didn’t have a lot of money, but ammo was cheap and time was preciously used forging a family of shooters. Some of my fondest memories are of shooting with my dad, under his careful direction, and always listening to his well-placed comments on personal responsibility and respecting firearms and human life.

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 world’s leading gun salesman of all time

Obama just keeps on breaking all the records for gun sales. He has now sold 91% more guns than were ever sold under George W. Bush:

There have been 65,376,373 background checks completed for Americans purchasing firearms since February of 2009, the first full month of Barack Obama’s presidency.

According to data compiled by the FBI, the number of Americans purchasing guns has skyrocketed since Obama was elected.

In 2009, there were 13,984,953 background checks for Americans buying firearms.  If we subtract the 1,212,860 checks completed in the month of January, the total checks for the year under Obama were 12,772,090.  Read more »
