Bloomberg has been a heavy critic of what he calls "lax" gun laws across the country. Everytown for Gun Safety wants to encourage people to contact their legislators about the need for tougher gun laws.  It just might send people to the gun store instead.

Everything Else / Will trade training for web development
« Last post by CR Williams on Yesterday at 05:57:09 AM »
My website needs work. Maybe a little, maybe a lot. It may be that I could do it myself, but I'd rather trade professional services for it. Not much money right now, but I do have knowledge, to wit: I know gunfighting better than I know web development; others of you know web development better than you know gunfighting. There is opportunity for a beneficial exchange here.

Basically, you make my website better and I make you (and others, if there is that much work and you want to set up a group) a better gunfighter. Details to be discussed, including how we work out the record-keeping to keep .govs happy.

Contact me if you're interested. Let's make a deal.

Guns in America: Why I Think It's Time for California to Stop Fighting Peruta vs. San Diego
Posted: 07/28/2014 5:50 pm EDT Updated: 07/28/2014 11:59 pm EDT

On Thursday, July 24, 2014, Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr. issued a Summary Judgment Order affirming that the 2nd Amendment confers a right to "bear arms" outside the home. The order was nothing short of devastating to the District of Columbia which has been resisting and delaying compliance with legal decisions on this issue for many years. The order was plain. The government and police of the District of Columbia were told to cease and desist from enforcing all laws regarding carrying weapons until such time that an acceptable and constitutionally compliant set of laws providing for the carrying of weapons outside the home for D.C. residents and non-residents are put into place. That's a hammer blow in magnitude rarely seen and it's a wake-up call to other jurisdictions resisting similar decisions on other parts of the country.

There is little doubt that D.C. was hit particularly hard in this instance because they've been so hard headed. What is interesting if one reads the decision is how much Judge Scullin references another case on the other side of the country as part of the legal argument underpinning the judgment. This case is Peruta vs. San Diego where the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals also handed down a decision saying that arbitrary government laws that deny citizens access to constitutional rights does not fly. That decision also stands today but remains stayed because of legal maneuvering by the office of the Attorney General of California -- who was not a party to the original case -- requesting a legal second opinion from the federal courts and advising all counties and cities not to comply with the 9th Circuit's legal order. It's an ode to the desires of urban California gun control advocates crying for the power of local control to abrogate Constitutional rights. That's a hope given this D.C. decision that grows ever dimmer by the moment. American citizens have inalienable rights and the courts clearly are establishing a pattern of constraining "local" governments from trampling on them.

So here's the strategic dilemma I believe Kamala Harris faces this week. Does the Attorney General wish to continue down the path of resisting what looks more and more inevitable? Is it in the best interest of California to possibly be the source of a future "hammer blow" decision that will affect not just this state but all of the other states in the 9th District? That probably won't fly too well with the other Governors or the citizens of those states.

Good Reading Material / New York Reload
« Last post by pop pop on July 29, 2014, 06:37:54 AM »
I, sometimes, pocket carry 2 revolvers with the intention of doing the same thing(NY Reload) "IF POSSIBLE." 

Also having another "Roscoe" in the weak side gives another option if in close hand combat, or injury to strong side.

If "Murphy" shows up, then, It's all for one and oner for all.

Oh, "The Plans Of Mice And Men!"

Thats my plan and I am sticking too it! YMMV

CR Williams - Drill of the Month / The other one I stole from the Israeli guy
« Last post by CR Williams on July 29, 2014, 06:10:46 AM »
You'll need somebody to provide a prompt or something recorded you can play back (give yourself enough time to forget what is on record).

To run the drill go to the line and begin doing some physical exercise (In my case it was squat jumps. I talked them out of burpees. I hate burpees. Burpees are a tool of Satan. So are ab wheels. And Tabatas. Darth Vader is not as evil as a Tabata.). Run a few repetitions or a little time with the chosen exercise and then the helper or recorder will call out a simple math formula. (I think we got the square root of nine at the time, or it might have been something minus the square root of nine. I can't remember any more.) The solution to the formula is the number of shots you will fire on target.

Start the exercise, solve the problem, shoot. Pretty much as simple as that.

Just don't make me do burpees. I will shoot you if you make me do burpees.

Nevada Now Honors Illinois. This brings to 21 the number of states that will honor and Illinois License to Carry.   http://nvrepository.state.nv.us/ccw_changes.shtml  Illinois does not honor any other states permit/license. IL does have a peaceful journey law that allows those with a permit/license from their state of residence to keep their loaded firearm on them while in their vehicle while traveling through the state. You just can’t get out of your vehicle with a loaded unsecured firearm.

A DC Federal Judge has ruled that DC can’t  ban  the carrying of firearms outside the home.  It is being reported that D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier has instructed her force not to arrest anyone legally able to carry a firearm. As soon as this was reported DC ask for a stay in the ruling which will most likely be granted and those reverting DC to their existing laws banning the carrying of all firearms until it is settled in a higher court. It will be months if not years before this is finally settled unless DC just gives up and accepts the Judges order which is unlikely.   http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/07/27/emily-miller-federal-judge-rules-dc-ban-on-gun-carry-rights-unconstitutional/

You can see the memo that when out to all officers telling them not to enforce the ban on carrying firearms outside the home. http://alangura.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/07-137-14.pdf

 http://www.handgunlaw.us was under a DDoS attack from a frontinernet user IP. We can only track users so far and when they are using a phony IP address, it takes the ISP [in this case, Frontiernet.net] to track it further and get the problem stopped. Frontiernet was notified of the attack (Twice)  and we asked for their assistance in tracking down the person/s responsible. http://www.handgunlaw.us has not had any reply from Frontiernet.

For clarification, the following has been posted on http://www.handgunlaw.us

NOTICE: The correct address for the site is http://www.handgunlaw.us. We have again
blocked http://handgunlaw.us from allowing images to display. Using the correct
