Americans believe firearms make them safer
VSSA
This just has to tick off the gun ban lobby. Their mantra for years has been having a firearm in the home makes you more likely to be the victim of gun violence. This new Gallup poll reports that more than 60 percent of the public believe a firearm in the home makes them safer. This is double the percentage that said that in 2000.

The latest on smart guns
Shall Not Be Questioned
This should be enough to convince anyone that gun control people are technocratic central planners who are more than just a little uncomfortable with the idea of anyone exercising individual control over their own lives and destinies.

Washington state's I-594 to be protested by mass felony civil disobedience
Bearing Arms
Billionaires such as Bill Gates, Steve Balmer and Micheal Bloomberg may have been able to "buy" a draconain gun control bill I-594 over the wishes of both gun owners and thousands of law enforcement officers, but it appears that enforcing it is going to be another matter entirely. A mass protest will take place once the Washington state law is certified, daring authorities to enforce the law as more than 5,600 gun owners have pledged to pass firearms to one another in a mass demonstration to show the absurdity of the law, which now classifies such hand-offs as felony gun crimes.

The Shooter's Log
Most shooters are gearheads. The ultimate goal of raising all that gear is being able to hit the chosen target. Increasing your firing skill with your AR-15 is a big factor in your enjoyment of it, and as your skills improve, your ability to judge the effectiveness of your gear improves as well. But the most basic elements of shooting, the true fundamentals, are these: put the sights on the target, and then pull the trigger without moving the sights.

The not-so-old-school snubbie
Guns Magazine via The Daily Caller
Gun makers still make snubbies. That's because people still buy snubbies. And people still buy snubbies because they have learned that snubbies do a lot with little. Look, it's been true for decades: Five or six rounds of .38 Special is nothing to sniff at when carried in a small revolver that's easy to hide and not at all bad to shoot. And many of these snubbies are chambered in .357 Magnum, arguably one of the best defensive rounds ever.

A quartet of pocket pistols from SIG Sauer, Glock, Kahr and Colt
Gun Tests
Many concealed-carry customers pooh-pooh pistols chambered in 380 ACP as being underpowered for self defense. But they may well be in the vocal minority, because sales of 380-chambered handguns and ammunition continues apace, with more of the smallish sidearms finding their way into pockets and purses than ever before.
