There is a second petition to repeal the Hughes Amendment. The Hughes Amendment was […]

In 2015, Italian firearms manufacturer and importer Chiappa Firearms announced they were going to bring a 9mm AK47 pistol to the United States.

Whitehouse.gov Petition to Repeal the NFA

I don’t think it will have any immediate result, but I’ll discuss why it’s important to signal our opposition to this extraneous legislation. What is the NFA? The NFA regulates certain […]

Last Friday we went someplace and I locked my gun up in my truck. When we left, I got my pistol and spare mag out of the Homak safe (model HS10036683) and drove home. Minnesota has a safe storage statue, and I usually use this Homak box to lock up our handgun for when The […]

An armed citizen responded — off-duty law enforcement officer, 3-gun competitor, and firearms trainer Jason Falconer. He stopped the threat and escaped without injury. Earlier this week, the mall security footage from the attack was released. The original video had some […]
