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

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.

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.

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.

AA battery model (supports Lithium or Alkaline)
1 MOA Dot reticle pattern (no outer circle)
Interfaces to 1 Picatinny (MIL-STD-1913) or Weaver rail
Had one for YEARS, wore out 1 AR-15 with my Eotec attached. Now it is mounted to my new ar-15. It’s been through rain, dust, mud, and everything in between, and still works. You can change the brightness of the reticule with a bush of a button. My advice when using this red dot in daylight is to have it as bright as possible. However that might just be my eye’s. The Eocec will work in virtually any weather condition. The hard plastic casing protects it from drops, long firing situations, and so long as it is attached correctly it will not loose it’s 0. Attaching is simple. There is a screw on one side that you tighten down when it is sitting correctly on your picatinny rail. Personally I have the cammo pattern, it looks out of place on a black riffle, however, I do not own firearms for their looks. Only their ability to put rounds down range. Well that’s really it,. Just remember to use coupon code gunsammo for 11% off your entire order at Tactical Sawg.
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.
Enroute to the U.S. Supreme Court
MISSOULA, MONT. – Plaintiffs in litigation to validate the principles of the Montana Firearms Freedom Act (MFFA) have appealed an expected but adverse federal district court decision to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The plaintiffs in MSSA v. Holder include the Montana Shooting Sports Association (MSSA), the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), and MSSA President Gary Marbut of Missoula.
The MFFA is designed to test the power of Congress to regulate everything without limits under the narrow power given to Congress in the Constitution to “regulate commerce … among the states.” The MFFA declares that any firearms, ammunition and firearm accessories made and retained in Montana are not subject to any federal authority under the Commerce Clause. Congress must find some authority among the Constitution’s “enumerated powers” for every action it takes.
Plaintiffs filed the lawsuit MSSA v. Holder on the day the MFFA became effective in Montana, October 1, 2009. Since the MFFA enactment in Montana, the MFFA has been cloned and enacted in seven other states, and FFA bills have been introduced in the legislatures of 20 more states.
In a judgment entered on October 19, 2010, the district court granted the U.S. Motion to Dismiss. It is this judgment that is now appealed to the Ninth Circuit.
MSSA President and plaintiff Gary Marbut commented, “We’ve known all along that the district court will not provide what we seek, the reversal of a half-century of bad Commerce Clause precedent. We need to get to the U.S. Supreme Court for that. This notice of appeal puts us at the 50-yard line in our quest to get to the Supreme Court – it is a big step in the direction we need to go.”
Not only has the FFA concept attracted the interest and support of many other states frustrated with an overbearing federal government, but the MSSA v. Holder lawsuit has attracted an unusual, perhaps record, number of amici (amicus curiae, friends of the court). Some qualified observers say they’ve never seen a case that has attracted as much amici support at the district court level as this case has. Amici include the State of Utah (also representing several other states), Gun Owners Foundation (Gun Owners of America), the Goldwater Institute of Arizona, the Paragon Foundation of New Mexico, the Weapons Collectors Society of Montana, an amicus group of Montana legislators who supported the MFFA, and another amicus group of non-Montana legislators who sponsored or co-sponsored FFA bills in other states. The State of Montana has also intervened in support of the MFFA. Other amici are expected to enter in support of the MFFA when the lawsuit is argued before Ninth Circuit.
“It is totally obvious from the positions of federal participants, both lawyers and judges for the U.S.,” Marbut commented, “that the federal establishment definitely, almost desperately, wishes to prevent this issue from having a trial on merit.”
The likely options for the Ninth Circuit are to uphold the judgment of the district court or to overrule the district court and remand the case back to the district court for trial. Regardless of what action is taken by the Ninth Circuit, MSSA v. Holder is certain to be appealed to the Supreme Court. If the Supreme Court only reviews the district court dismissal on appeal to it, the Supreme Court can still rule on the merits of the case since part of the grounds for dismissal is based on merit.
Still time to save on Guns in South Carolina during their annual “Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday”
South Carolina’s controversial and annual “Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday” is back as of today, November 26, at 12:01 a.m. and will run through midnight Saturday, November 27.
If you haven’t guessed if you buy a handgun, rifle, or shotgun you’ll be able to skip the state’s 6% sales tax and any local county tax. But all gun accessories and ammunition won’t be subject to the discount.
If you need to know any of the nitty gritty check out this FAQ from the South Carolina Department of Revenue.
Friday, November 19, is National Ammo Day, a day when gun-owners are encouraged to purchase at least 100 rounds of ammunition. National Ammo Day is an annual BUYcott event, a grassroots demonstration of the numbers of committed American firearms owners. There are an estimated 75 MILLION gun owners in the United States of America. If each gun owner or Second Amendment supporter buys 100 rounds of ammunition, that’s 7.5 BILLION rounds in the hands of law-abiding citizens!
Ammo Day is based on the principle that there is strength in numbers. Consider this – when politicians see the amount of tax dollars generated through ammunition sales those politicians will be less inclined to pass restrictive legislation. Likewise, when millions of lawful firearms owners “vote with their pocketbooks” on Ammo Day, it demonstrates that supporters of the Second Amendment are serious, organized, and willing to spend money to protect their rights. That’s something anti-gun politicians can’t ignore
