Responding to Texas Incident, Biden Admits Gun Control Didn’t Work

In the aftermath of the Texas hostage incident, Joe Biden acknowledged that when crials get their guns “on the street,” there is no way to stop them. Regardless of the ultimate source of the handgun carried by now-deceased Colleyville, Texas synagogue hostage-taker Malik Faisal Akram, a remark by Joe Biden in the aftermath was an acknowledgment that gun control laws he and others have advocated do not keep guns out of the wrong hands. Responding to questions from reporters, Biden admitted, “The idea of background checks are critical, but you can’t stop something like this if someone’s on the streets buying something from somebody else on the streets.” It may have been a rare moment of candor from the Delaware Democrat, who has spent his career in Washington, D.C. pushing various gun control schemes. For Biden to acknowledge people with bad intentions will somehow obtain firearms through illicit means is […]

300 Blackout Ammunition Compared to 5.56 NATO/.223 Rounds ~ An In Depth Report Part 1

Energizer Battery v. 5.56 NATO/.223 (tall one on the right) v. 300 Blackout U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- 300 v 556? It almost sounds like a court case. DC v Heller, Roe v Wade, etc. The truth is, many shooters look at this as if it really is some kind of court case. The problem with that thought is simple. The jury is still out for many of us. There are people who are fueling their flamethrowers as you this. The title alone will get their ire chain on the big sprocket and they’re ing to burn anyone on the other side of this discussion to the ground. I have to admit, I have deeply held opinions myself. But when it comes to the firearms industry, there don’t seem to be as many absolutes as you’d think other than safety measures. There used to be plenty of black and white, but through […]

Ruger’s Mark IV Target

11/21/2021 Computers suck. I opened WordPress to begin a new article and was once again confronted with a blank page. Happens every week. My stupid cell phone can anticipate my words, auto correct and express emotion, but you… you stupid tin box, all you can do is hide under my desk and let me to deal with the problem…. OK, so I have product abandonment issues. I grew up racing Fords. My favorite was a ’68 428 Cobra Jet 4 speed that we raced as a family. Loved that car. Paired with a 1969 Super Cobra Jet roller, we swapped drive trains and bodies for NHRA class advantage. Eventually, factored up in NHRA classes and out of replacement engine parts, we looked to Ford for a replacement and found only the Mustang Cobra II which was, essentially, a Pinto with a trunk, powered by an asthmatic 302 CI engine […]

The Direct impingement system still functions like most.

The gas expands inside the BCG, forcing it backwards into the buffer tube. There is no ‘chamber,’ but more of a diversion like the original design.” Maxim Defense Announces New MD:11 Series The MD:11 will be available in 6.5 Creedmoor or .308 Winchester utilizing an 18 in. Proof Research carbon fiber or stainless-steel barrel. Using these barrels keeps the weight down to just 9lbs. This weapon was initially designed […]

To better meet the comfort, performance, and carry style needs of its diverse consumer base, Taurus introduces the new G3X 9mm pistol. The new Taurus G3X represents a design blend of two of Taurus’ more recent semi-auto pistols—the G3 full-size 9mm and the G3C compact 9mm.

The result is the new Taurus G3X in 9x19mm. The Taurus G3X is built […]

FN America just announced the re-introduction of their Hi-Power pistols with modern enhancements under the FN High Power name. IMG FN America U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- FN America, LLC proudly announces the introduction of the all-new FN High Power, a completely reimagined pistol based on the legendary 1935 design conceived by John Moses Browning and perfected by Dieudonné Saive.

Alabama – ASA and Bloomberg Fight Against Constitutional Carry

The Alabama Capitol Building. IMG NRA-ILA U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Bobby Timmons, director of the Alabama Sheriff’s Association (ASA), is so opposed to acknowledging your inherent right-to-carry, and wants so badly to protect the revenue stream from permit fees, that he openly opposes the Second Amendment and allies with anti-gun extremists. He said in a media interview that the ASA is working with a Bloomberg-backed, national anti-gun group in order to oppose the constitutional carry legislation currently in the Alabama Legislature. From the 1819 News article: “Timmons has claimed several times that the Second Amendment was not written to give citizens the right to carry a weapon in a concealed fashion, saying that the amendment was only written to allow citizens to have weapons to defend their homes. Given his interpretation of the Second Amendment, 1819 News asked Timmons if ASA would support amending the Constitution to limit the Second Amendment to the possession of […]

GOA Combatting Biden & Bloomberg in Court to Save 2A Sanctuaries

Your fellow gun owners need you. Anti-gunners are trying to crack down on 2A Sanctuaries across America, with their sights now set on the strongest sanctuary in the nation Missouri. Last year, GOA successfully rallied our grassroots members in Missouri to press their legislators and Governor to support HB 85, a bill that would impose $50,000 penalties on any agency that enforces federal gun control that exceeds what is allowed by Missouri law. The Governor signed it into law, infuriating anti-gunners… Now, attorneys from Bloomberg’s Everytown and the Biden-Harris Adistration are seeking revenge by helping anti-gunners in St. Louis sue the state of Missouri. Gun Owners Foundation is now stepping in to help a local constitutional organization the Freedom Center of Missouri fight back in defense of Missouri’s status as a 2A Sanctuary. While we will be proudly adding our name to the amicus brief, Gun Owners […]

WA: Gun ban moving on Thursday, Jan 20!

Gun haters in the Washington Senate are fixated on banning firearms, and if you own certain named guns, or even guns that are similar — they want to ban them. The offending bill is SB 5217. The Senate Committee on Law and Justice conducted a public hearing yesterday and has scheduled an Executive Session to decide what to do with the bill on January 20 — in just two days. Like other bills of this type that GOA has fought, SB 5217 includes a long list of firearms that the sponsors falsely label as “assault weapons.” And in case they forgot to add something to the list, they have also included the catch all phrase: “a copycat weapon, regardless of which company produced and manufactured the firearm.” Not only that, in case they forgot to name certain firearms, SB 5217 includes a list of features such pistol grips, folding […]
