The Congressional Progressive Caucus has announced it will introduce legislation designed to strip Americans of the right to defend themselves. Called “Stop Shoot First Laws,” the amendment to the Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill under consideration in the House would deny states federal funding allocated under section 505 of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 if they continue to allow citizens to defend themselves.
“Shoot first laws have already cost too many lives,” said Progressive Caucus co-chairs Keith Ellison and Raul Grijalva upon introducing their amendment. “In Florida alone, deaths due to self-defense have tripled since the law was enacted. Federal money shouldn’t be spent supporting states with laws that endanger their own people. This is no different than withholding transportation funds from states that don’t enforce seatbelt laws.”
“The message here is if you have this kind of law that your federal funding is going to take a hit because they make states less safe,” Adam Sarvana, communications director for Grijalva, told Politico.

Very easy to use

Great for going to the range and maybe even hunting
I live in the rain forest that is called Washington state, I have had the foam get socked, however it dray’s out fast.
While the foam lining will protect your riffle during transport, and the hard plastic case helps with that as well, if shaken around the chances are you will lose your zero on your scope. While it is a hard plastic case I would never take this on a plain for travelling, it is just not that hard of a case.
For the money $31.99 – 11% using coupon code gunsammo it is a good carrying case. This case can be bought with said coupon code at Tactical Swag
Price $24.95 with 4089 in stock at the time of this post.
It is a simple enough idea, side this grip onto your forward rail and tighten it down when positioned properly. The idea is simple and so is the use. What having a forward grip does for your AR-15 is amazing enough as it is. If you are like me and go to the range and shoot a lot of ammo having a forward grip is amazing. Like virtually all AR-15’s my barrel gets hot by the end of the day. Instead of holding onto the front end of the riffle, you are holding onto a grip. It keeps the heat away, and helps with accuracy, not to mention helps with fatigue. By pulling the ar-15 tight into your shoulder you help with stabilizing the “shakes” at the end of your barrel. Also having your forehand equal to your shoulder helps keep you from getting tired. If you own an AR-15 and do not have a vertical grip you need one, and why not get it at this price (or by using coupon code gunsammo and save 11%) at tactical swag.
Hoppe’s 308 – .30 Caliber Rifle, bore snake
7 in stock at the time of this post, Cost is $19.99 per. However you can save 11% using coupon code gunsammo
I have one of these for my 308 hunting rifle. It makes cleaning the barrel of my riffle a whole lot easier. All you need to do is drop the metal head down your barrel, and then pull the whole thing trough your barrel. I do this dry a few times, them put some clp break free on the fabric and the attach scrub brush on the end. Pull that trough a few times and your barrel is clean. Less than 5 minutes you can have your 30 caliber rifle barrel cleaned after a day at the range, out hunting, or any other time you may need to utilize your 30 caliber rifle.
Pick up this bore snake and more with that 11% coupon code gunsammo at Tactical Swag
High impact plastic slides, Heavy Duty Nylon, High impact clip, Quick-detach buckle
OK now on to the nitty-gritty. I have this sling attached to my AR-15 now. One of the nice things about it is that it makes carrying the riffle a lot easier. Also when the sling is worn across the chest it makes pulling the ar-15 up to a firing position a lot easier. The high impact clip is great and holds onto the swing solidly. However the quick detach is crap, and just advertising hype. You have to push down and hold this button and maneuver the clip to get it free. However, on the opposite side of this, is that it will stay attached to your riffle virtually no matter what. If the price seems high it is. However in this case you do get what you pay for. Also using coupon code gunsammo you do save 11% on your entire order over at Tactical Swag. Truth be told I will go nowhere with my AR without my single point sling attached.
We will start with the specs then go into our thoughts. Price $7.48 In stock 300+ at the time of this post Buy BreakFree CLP Here
Penetrates and spreads along metal surfaces. Long-lasting lubricating film dramatically reduces adhesion of sand, grit or other abrasives which cause wear and failure Corrosion inhibitors prevent the formation of rust Boundary film protects metal surfaces from moisture and other contaminants Specially formulated synthetic oils wont lose viscosity, dry out or stiffen up in extreme environments.
So our thoughts
Break Free or CLP was originally created for the military, and in fact still required to be used by the military. My question, if it’s good enough for the US military world wide it sure enough so be good enough for me, no? Well it is. I use it exclusively on all of my pistols, riffles, and shotgun’s. It Cleans Lubricates and Preserves all of my person firearms. It only takes a drop on a swab to clean and lubricate at the same time. I run a cleaning brush through a clean sab, repeat until swab comes out virtually clean. The a dab of Break feee on a swab, repeat until it comes out clean. About 2-3 swabs. After that I can put my firearm away for months or years without touch ups. When I take the firearm out I run 1 swab with 1 dot of CLP and ready to go. No need for ANY other product. While it is more expensive then others, you are getting 3 products in 1. Using coupon code GunsAmmo at Tactical Swag you do save 11% on your entire order, not just the CLP. Hope you enjoy.
Magpul Industries Mag PMAG 223 Rem 556NATO 30Rd Black AR Rifles Price $14.20 per mag. Can be purchased at Tactical Swag.
OK that is the price (and amazing at that) especially if you use coupon code GunsAmmo for an ADITIONAL 11% off your entire order. That’s the Nitti gritty. Now for the review. I own 3 PMags exactly like this. Personally I love them. I can run them through the mud, water, dirt, dust, and normally. As I have. They will take any type of ammo your AR-15 will take with no hiccups. I have run junk polomer ammo as well as Winchester. Personally I will use only PMag’s. Some of the reasons are the facts we have listed blow about them.
It features an advanced impact resistant polymer construction, a pop-off Impact/Dust Cover for storage, and an easy to disassemble design with a flared floorplate for positive magazine extraction from pouches. The PMAG 30 utilizes a resilient stainless steel spring for corrosion resistance and a anti-tilt, self-lubricating follower for increased reliability.
There are other magazine companies out there that we have used, and will review at a latter date. Frankly put though these are the best for the money.
Again use coupon code gunsammo for 11% off your entire order at Tactical Swag, as one of our new sponsors we were able to work out that deal for you. Higher then anywhere else.
Well it has been more than a year since our last post. We stopped because a company threatened to sue us if we didn’t stop and give them the domain name. They even offered to buy the domain. Seeing as it has been more than a year since all that happened we can assume they are no longer interested. Also we got a few new sponsors who begged up to reopen. So here it is. We will be reviewing their products with links to them. Good, bad, o indifferent we will post it. Because they through money at us does not mean we will give a product a bad review if we fell it deserves it. The new posts will come out Mon-Fri only. No weekends. Hay we even need to take a break and shoot some things up. J First review will be Monday the 23rd of April and will contine weekly until they run out of products, or fire us again. J We hope you enjoy the new Guns and Ammo Enthusiast Blog.
H.R. 822, introduced in the U.S. House by Representatives Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) and Heath Shuler (D-N.C.), would allow any person with a valid state-issued concealed firearm permit to carry a concealed firearm in any state that issues concealed firearm permits, or that does not prohibit the carrying of concealed firearms for lawful purposes. A state’s laws governing where concealed firearms may be carried would apply within its borders. The bill applies to D.C., Puerto Rico and U.S. territories. It would not create a federal licensing system; rather, it would require the states to recognize each others’ carry permits, just as they recognize drivers’ licenses and carry permits held by armored car guards. Rep. Stearns has introduced such legislation since 1995.
• H.R. 822 recognizes the significant impact of the landmark cases, District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) and McDonald v. City of Chicago (2010), which found that the Second Amendment protects a fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms and that the protections of the Second Amendment extend to infringements under state law.
• Today, 48 states have laws permitting concealed carry, in some circumstances. Forty states, accounting for two-thirds of the U.S. population, have right-to-carry laws. Thirty-six of those have “shall issue” permit laws (including Alaska and Arizona, which also allow carrying without a permit), two have fairly administered “discretionary issue” permit laws, and Vermont (along with Alaska and Arizona) allows carrying without a permit. (Eight states have restrictive discretionary issue laws.)
• Citizens with carry permits are more law-abiding than the general public. Only 0.01% of nearly 1.2 million permits issued by Florida have been revoked because of firearm crimes by permit holders. Similarly low percentages of permits have been revoked in Texas, Virginia, and other right-to-carry states that keep such statistics. Right-to-carry is widely supported by law enforcement officials and groups.
• States with right-to-carry laws have lower violent crime rates. On average, right-to-carry states have 22 percent lower total violent crime rates, 30 percent lower murder rates, 46 percent lower robbery rates, and 12 percent lower aggravated assault rates, compared to the rest of the country. The seven states with the lowest violent crime rates are right-to-carry states. (Data: FBI.)
• Crime declines in states with right-to-carry laws. Since adopting right-to-carry in 1987, Florida’s total violent crime and murder rates have dropped 32 percent and 58 percent, respectively. Texas’ violent crime and murder rates have dropped 20 percent and 31 percent, respectively, since enactment of its 1996 right-to-carry law. (Data: FBI.)
• The right of self-defense is fundamental, and has been recognized in law for centuries. The Declaration of Independence asserts that “life” is among the unalienable rights of all people. The Second Amendment guarantees the right of the people to keep and bear arms for “security.”
• The laws of all states and the constitutions of most states recognize the right to use force in self-defense. The Supreme Court has stated that a person “may repel force by force” in self-defense, and is “entitled to stand his ground and meet any attack made upon him with a deadly weapon, in such a way and with such force” as needed to prevent “great bodily injury or death.” (Beard v. United States (1895))
• Congress affirmed the right to own guns for “protective purposes” in the Gun Control Act (1968) and Firearm Owners’ Protection Act (1986). In 1982, the Senate Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution described the right to arms as “a right of the individual citizen to privately possess and carry in a peaceful manner firearms and similar arms.”

Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.
In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.
When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force. The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gangbanger, and a single gay guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.
There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we’d be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger’s potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat–it has no validity when most of a mugger’s potential marks are armed. People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that’s the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.
Then there’s the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser. People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don’t constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level. The gun is the only weapon that’s as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weightlifter. It simply wouldn’t work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn’t both lethal and easily employable.
When I carry a gun, I don’t do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I’m looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation…and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act.
