Man Arrested in Orlando for Open Carrying “Assault Rifle”

Christopher Ray Arrested For Open Carry of “Assault Rifle”     I don’t claim to understand all of the Open Carry regulations in Florida. But it seems like this guy isn’t helping. I support open carry for a myriad of reasons. The first being it’s a buffer. A frontier. Much like when the anti-gun types successfully got rid of class …

Larry Vickers Bans Appendix Carry For Un-vetted Students.

    The ass hurt over the LAV banning appendix carry is hilarious. If Larry Vickers doesn’t want open enrollment classes to carry appendix, that’s his choice. Respect it. Love it or leave it.

Sara Brady Has Passed And Why We Shouldn’t Gloat.

Sara Brady has passed on. My feelings are probably not so much in line with the general glee I am seeing in my industry. She took her husband’s grievous injury and turned that into an attack that caused many people of my generation a lot of pain and suffering. But I remember the day President Reagan, Jim Brady, the Secret …
