"“The Utah gun law that canceled a USU speech is an embarrassment,” deseretnews.com declares. Backstory: feminist videogame reviewer Anita Sarkeesian gets a death threat before a planned speech at Utah State University. USU checks it out and deems it incredible. Unsatisfied, Sarkeesian demands a no-guns policy at the venue, including pat-downs and a metal detector. USU says “You must be joking son, where did you get those shoes?” State law says we can’t do that “gun-free zone” thing. Ms. Sarkeesian cancels the gig. All of which is grist for deseretnews.com’s anti-gun mill . . ." ...

... "In an age of sound bites and agenda driven news reports, the architects of a new cultural order have slipped one more phrase into the lexicon of the current cultural struggle, one which we adopt at our own peril."

"That phrase is 'Gun Rights.'"

"Guns have no rights. People do. Rights are goods of human persons. Human Rights come not from civil government but from God."

"Civil Rights are those rights properly recognized by the Civil Government and protected. This is critically important! ..." ...
 

What did Hogan tell the NRA?

"Based on what Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan has said about gun control, it's hard to see what the National Rifle Association would find appealing about him. He has said that although he opposed the strict new gun control legislation Gov. Martin O'Malley championed two years ago, he would not seek to repeal it. In various forums, he has said he supports background checks for all gun sales, wants tighter restrictions to prevent those suffering from mental illness from getting guns and would not seek to change Maryland's strict standards for issuing concealed-carry permits. Yet on Monday, the NRA's Political Victory Fund endorsed Mr. Hogan and lauded his 'support and commitment to the Second Amendment.'" ...
 

Silencer Review: Liberty Suppressors Chaotic

"300 AAC Blackout is really starting to take off. Almost every manufacturer offers it as an option for their guns, and the ammo is now widely available in big box stores like Academy. It seems like 300 BLK is at the tipping point where, at the very least, it will be self-sustaining and hang around much like other “boutique” calibers like .243 Win and .357 SIG. Part of that appeal comes from the easily suppressed nature of the round, offering subsonic capabilities alongside supersonic capabilities without changing anything. With an eye especially on the 300 BLK market, Liberty Suppressors released their Chaotic 30 caliber suppressor . . ." ...
 

Gear Review: Recover Tactical 1911 Grip

"The 1911 handgun is the gold standard, in my opinion. The sleek and sexy look of the gun is just pure old school cool, and there are enough big name manufacturers of the firearm to keep the cost of getting your very own model pretty reasonable. But for those who bought a standard “mil spec” 1911 and want to tack on some accessories, the lack of rail space and the distinctly un-tacticality of the gun can be a problem. Enter the Recover grip for 1911 handguns . . ." ...

"In the run-up to the mid-term elections, The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has abandoned any pretense of rational argument. The anti-gun org’s ad above rivals SpongeBob \\SquarePants for intellectual sophistication – minus SBSP’s endearing honesty and positive mental attitude. The ad directs viewers to lapdogscorecard.org, which “outs”pro-gun politicians in an interactive map. The page includes a “Worst of the Worst” ('Best in show if you will”) gallery of 12 elected officials [screen cap after the jump]. It’s an excellent resource in the sense that . . ." ...

"Yawn. Another Kydex hybrid holster, right? Only this one isn’t really the same all the others. If you read our review of the StealthGear USA’s ONYX IWB holster, you know that StealthGear uses a breathable backing that makes toting a shootin’ iron all day – especially in warmer climes – much more comfy. Now StealthGear has added to their Ventcore-backed product line with an appendix carry option. Retail price: $79. Press release after the jump . . ." ...

"This week a prominent feminist was forced to cancel lectures at USU because of a threat made on her life."

"Well, that's oversimplifying it, you see, Anita Sarkeesian, a feminist noteworthy for her comments on the portrayal of women in video games, had every intention of going through with the speech except for one minor hiccup, the state of Utah's gun laws."

According to Utah law, the government can't stop anyone from bringing a gun to a concealed event. So. although our “second amendment rights” are protected, there's no guarantee of any security at pretty much any event." ...

"Former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords made a stop in Iowa Tuesday to promote a conversation on ways to enact “common-sense” laws that protect citizens — especially women and families — from gun violence."

"Giffords, herself a victim of gun violence and co-founder of Americans for Responsible Solutions, made the seventh stop on a nine-state 'Protect All Women' tour that organizers say is aimed at building an organization committed to finding sensible ways to reduce gun violence and enacting responsible firearms policies that protect the Second Amendment." ...

... "Loesch heard her grandfather go to the cupboard where he kept his firearms, and later saw that he grabbed a shotgun."

"'He loaded his shotgun, cocked it, walked out on the front porch,' Loesch said. ... Grandpa cocked the shotgun, sat out on the swing on the front porch. And I was terrified because I’m hearing my aunt cry — ... that really rocks your sense of security and safety. My grandparents’ house had been a refuge.'"

"Loesch said she was terrified the man was going to come and kill them, and the police wouldn’t arrive in time. But as she saw her grandfather sitting calmly on the front porch, hearing the creak as he rocked very slowly back and forth, her panic slowly turned into a sense of security." ...

"Another effort to repeal Farragut's ban on guns in parks is underway. A change in state law in 2009 allowed handgun permit holders to carry their weapons into parks, but local governments could opt out. That's what Farragut decided to do and they've stuck with it when the issue came up again last year."

"The latest push to lift the ban came in September 2013, when the board of mayor and aldermen brought this issue up again. After a three to two vote, the board continued the current ban on firearms. " ...

"Under the bill, gun rights groups like the NRA will be able to sue municipalities that enact gun control measures."

"In July of 2014, the ban on carrying guns outside the home in the District of Columbia was struck down as violating the second amendment of the Constitution. The judge granted a stay to the District government."

"In September, the District government passed emergency legislation that it claimed would meet Judge Scullin’s requirements for a constitutional law. The law contained numerous absurd restrictions. On 2 October 2014, Alan Gura filed a motion asking that the court block the implementation of the emergency law." ...

PA: Eric Frein sightings: How 'wilderness ninja' has outfoxed 1,000 cops

"Two fresh sightings of alleged sniper Eric Frein has resulted in more closed public schools in northern Pennsylvania and a shift in a massive manhunt to near where Mr. Frein went to high school – and where he was a member of the high school rifle team."

"The pressing question of how a single man has outmaneuvered 1,000 trained law enforcement officers in the Pocono Mountains for over five weeks suggests that Frein has used a home-field advantage, long-term planning, and survival skills to resemble a 'wilderness ninja,' a term some use to describe a rare breed of native scouts who can, in essence, morph into shadows." ...

Matthew Halleck, an Olmstead County resident, said keeping his two daughters safer is his primary concern, so he garnered a concealed carry permit to achieve his goal." ...
