    SOMEBODY FINALLY "GETS IT"! Want crime to drop? Start carrying..

    The following is excerpts from an online news article, regarding the attitude of Detroit, Michigan's Police Chief, James Craig. If ALL the heads of LEAs felt this way, the quality of life... and the reverence thereto, would increase substantially! But then here, I'm "preaching to the choir". Pax...

    Oklahoma Legislature Overwhelming Wins One For The GOOD GUYS!

    This is an excerpt from an online article in the "Oklahoma Watdog" (an investigative news site covering politics & spotlighting waste, fraud and abuse of taxpayer dollars in Oklahoma City & throughout the state). Fair use applies: Pro-gun group leads revolt, OK House overrides governor’s veto...

    Making guns safer by making safer guns?

    It could work... here's an excerpt from gizmag.com: All you need is a new (probably very expensive) handgun, and a new (also probably very expensive) wristwatch, and you're in business. I'll go out on a limb here, and assume that there is a receiving unit somewhere in the gun, and unless it is...

    Colorado Shooting

    I find it both interesting - and disturbing - that there have been inordinate number (TWENTY) of mass shootings since you elected Barack Hussein Obama as your "president". If you believe in "coincidence" then you can explain it away. However, if you believe that somewhere there is a cause...

    Schumer would force all states to ban texting while driving

    You reside in a really weird state, ccj. Here's what NJ State law says, "Driving is a privilege, not a right." (Chapter 7 - emphasis added), but, on the other hand, nowhere in the NJSA (that I could find) does it specify that you must have a license to drive (if you have had one somewhere at...

    Not specifically an OC article, but an FYI we might all be interested in...

    Fair use applies: (Complete article at http://www.wnd.com/2013/12/judge-says-waiting-period-burdens-2nd-amendment/#9uQTykqhTKh2ejeL.99) This is a step in the right direction. As I recall from my days stationed in San Diego, Kalifornia has had this waiting period for around a half-century. It's...

    "Inappropriate Response for OCDO"

    "Inappropriate Response for OCDO" is, itself, an inappropriate response. Most of us are not mind-readers, therefore the person who made the post is, in many cases if not most, unaware of what made the response/post "inappropriate". We learn absolutely nothing from the phrase "Inappropriate...

    Local Nut-Job Planned to "kill as many people as possible" in shooting rampage

    Local Nut-Job Planned to "kill as many people as possible" in shooting rampage His plan was to shoot up a movie theater, shopping centers, and blowing up a bus or metro train just as it crossed under an overpass... TOMORROW! His plan could have been thwarted by one armed citizen. However, the...

    Poll at the LA Times: Do you support Starbucks' Gun Stance?

    Based on the poll results, announcing such a position is not a particularly good business choice. Had they stayed with their original position (applicable states laws), their stance could not be interpreted as anti-OC/2A, and their explanation to the anti's would be based upon law, as opposed to...

    shooting low with full size guns

    Walking Wolf has a good idea with the RIA 1911. RIA has a good reputation, and seem to build a reliable pistol. Here's another thought about the RIA - the 22 TCM Standard/MicroMag Series 9mm. The 22TCM centerfire is a "convertible" - a centerfire .22TCM cartridge (which at 2,000+ fps has been...

    Man Follows Biden's Advice, Gets Charged By Police and Rifle Confiscated

    The Republic

    Recently it has been said, and seconded, that "The republic has become an enemy of freedom." Reminds me of a Pogo Possum cartoon from 1951: WE are the "Republic"! WE have allowed the government of the Republic to be co-opted by those we elected to represent our interests in Washington D.C. The...
