    Comcast Cancels Gun Commercials on All of its Networks-3

    by

    Macro-media consolidation has distressed civil libertarians for decades. Second Amendment advocates now share this concern with the recent announcement by Comcast Corp. that it will no longer accept gun-related commercials on its extensive media networks, which include holdings in television, cable, Internet, radio, and voice services in two-thirds of the nation's markets.
                   
    Philadelphia-based Comcast is one of the biggest media corporations in the world with annual revenues exceeding $55 billion. In early February, it announced it had acquired NBC Universal from GE in a deal valued at $16.7 billion.

    Mossberg 930 JM Pro Review: A Winning Shotgun for 3-Gun Competitions-0

    by

    To gear up for 3-Gun, shooters need to open their wallets wide, particularly for shotguns. Whereas pistols and rifles that qualify as competitive can be purchased for less than $1,000, it isn’t unusual for the price tag on a shotgun, the most specialized gun among the three, to flirt with or surpass $2,000 once all de rigueur modifications have been made. (To be clear, I’m speaking of guns in the tactical optics division, the most popular category in 3-Gun. Open-class guns, where anything and everything goes, are all pricey.)

    Conflicting Circuit Court Rulings Could Set the Stage for Supreme Court Review of Concealed Carry Laws-1

    by

    According to Adam Winkler, a UCLA professor of constitutional law and author of "Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America," the next significant gun rights cases that will come before the Supreme Court will likely address the right to carry firearms in public, an issue that the high court has yet to rule on.
                   
    "They've said you can have a gun, and you can have a gun in your home," Winkler told Christina Wilkie in her Feb. 25 Huffington post article. "So the logical next step is to see where else you can have one. The next great battle in the war over the Second Amendment is going to be who gets to argue concealed carry rights."

    Two Firearms Manufacturers Boycott New York-3

    by

    Two firearms manufacturers have announced they will no longer sell their products to law enforcement agencies in New York after state lawmakers endorsed Andrew M. Cuomo’s proposed assault-weapons ban in early February.
                   
    Washington-state-based firearms manufacturer Olympic Arms, a manufacturer of AR-15s and other semi-automatic rifles, announced on Feb. 13 that it will no longer sell its products to New York state law enforcement agencies, three days after Templar Custom Arms made a similar pledge.

    Department of Justice Report: Proposed Semi-Auto Ban 'Unlikely' to Lower Gun Violence-2

    by

    In case you missed it, the Department of Justice has concluded that the proposed semi-automatic firearms ban, if adopted, is “unlikely to have an effect on gun violence."

    But, as Daniel Greenfield writes on Frontpagemag.com on Feb. 19, gun-grabbing "Liberals like to think of themselves as reality-based, the only problem is that they’re always playing a game of Choose Your Own Reality. And Choose Your Own Facts."

    In Chicago, You're 'Corrupt' if You Participate in a Participatory Democracy-4

    by

    Chicago Police Superintendent Garry F. McCarthy said on a Feb. 17 radio talk show that firearm owners who lobby their representatives, or who donate money to political campaigns, for pro-Second Amendment issues are guilty of corruption and of endangering public safety.

    Apparently in Chicago, where 26 alderman have been convicted of corruption since 1978, and in Illinois, where four governors over the last four decades have served time in prison for corruption, participating in a participatory democracy is viewed as suspiciously seditious.

    The Anti-Gun Valentine's Day Boycott That Starbucks Forgot-4

    by

    Apparently, a coalition of anti-gun groups has been boycotting Starbucks for a year. Just in case Starbucks forgot they were being boycotted, the coalition issued a reminder on Thursday in a renewed call for the coffee-shop chain to make its stores gun-free zones.
                   
    "Today, Valentine’s Day, marks the one-year anniversary of a boycott of Starbucks called by the Fellowship of Reconciliation, the National Gun Victims Action Council, and the Episcopal Peace Fellowship for the company’s refusal to ban firearms from its stores," the statement reads.

    President Barack Obama's State of Union Speech Exacerbates Disunion Over Gun Policy -2

    by

    President Barack Obama formally initiated his gun control push with a policy speech on Jan. 16 and then reiterated his support for the proposed so-called 'assault weapons" (semi-automatic firearms) ban, magazine capacity limits and universal background checks during his Jan. 21 inaugural address.
                   
    But during Tuesday night's State of the Union speech, Obama used emotion -- and the presence in the House chamber of 40 gun violence survivors and family members -- to demand that Congress votes on a raft of gun control proposals introduced since the Newtown school massacre.

    by

     

    Esquire magazine has come out with a piece on the Navy SEAL who shot Osama Bin Laden, telling the story of the assault on the compound in Pakistan where the leader of Al Qaeda had been hiding out. 

    Included in the first-hand account of the raid is one hell of a product placement coup for EOTech. According to the article, the last view of Bin Laden as a biologically viable entity was through one of the company’s holo sights. According the guy who shot him:

    Pulsar N550: Anatomy of a Digital Riflescope -1

    by

    Born from technology developed by the military in the old Eastern Bloc, the Pulsar electronic riflescope is at the leading edge of the marriage of digital imaging with traditional optics. The sight, made in Belarus, is becoming increasingly popular among hog hunters and varmint shooters in states that permit night-vision equipment to be used to hunt non-game species. Among its attributes:
