Bogus No Guns Sign
North Carolina --(Ammoland.com)- Apparently the gun haters have decided that since they can’t convince business owners to post anti-gun signs, maybe they should post the signs themselves.
After Oct 1st I started to look for posted signs at my favorite establishments. I frequently go to a local chicken wing place in Greensboro and last week I noticed a simple sicker that pictured a pistol with red circle and line through it. I took it as no firearms allowed.
I was grabbing a to go order so I had already called it in. I was sad as this was going to be my last order as I wasn’t going to support them anymore. I REALLY like their wings. The manager is the one who brought me my order and gave me the customary “come again soon.” Which I replayed “not likely as long as you have that” pointing at the sicker.
The U.S. House of Representatives voted Tuesday to renew a 25-year-old prohibition against firearms that can evade metal detectors and X-ray machines just as 3-D printers are increasingly able to produce plastic weapons.
There isn’t a single “right” type of holster. As long as you consider the three criteria for an effective concealed carry holster, there are many good options.
There are an infinite number of factors that have influence on which holster to use for concealed carry. I wrote a whole book about gun holsters and even that just begins to scratch the surface. The bottom line about gun holsters is that there is no cut-and-dried option for everyone. The right choice depends on each individual’s lifestyle and specific needs. What’s perfect for one may be completely dysfunctional for another.

NEWTOWN, Conn., Nov. 25 (UPI) – The shooter in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Connecticut was obsessed with the Columbine shootings in Colorado, a report issued Monday states.
In the report’s summary, prosecutor Stephen Sedensky III wrote the investigation concluded the 20-year-old Newtown shooter, Adam Lanza, “acted alone and was solely criminally responsible for his actions of that day,” Dec. 14, when he gunned down 26 people, including 20 children and six members of the school staff.” Lanza also killed his mother Nancy Lanza before going on his rampage, which ended with him taking his own life.

The sign in the window warned burglars that the homeowner owned a handgun and would use it in self-defense. The state agents knocking on the door were there to confiscate the weapon.
The agents are part of the California Department of Justice’s Armed Prohibited Persons System (APPS), a program that takes firearms from people barred from owning them. The law says that group can include ex-felons and people deemed to be mentally unstable.
The right to keep and bear arms preceded the U.S. Constitution, as our Founding Fathers “propounded” the right but did not create it. They enshrined it via the Bill of Rights, all the while knowing the origin of the right itself was to be found in “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.”
Thomas Jefferson learned these things from Common Law commentators like William Blackstone. It was Blackstone who so clearly showed that the right to be armed was a natural right “that common law might propound but did not create and could not revoke.”
A man who was arrested while legally carrying a handgun near his own mailbox has won a settlement against the city of Corvallis, Oregon.
The city’s insurance carrier paid 31-year-old Kevin Hall $5,000 after a federal judge concluded that a Corvallis police officer illegally detained and searched the man two years ago, according to the Corvallis Gazette-Times.
Hall, a software developer and Monroe volunteer firefighter, said he was walking back to his house after retrieving his mail on Oct. 26, 2011, wearing a handgun in a holster at his side. Court documents indicated that Corvallis Police Officer James Dodge pulled up and got out of his patrol car, after which Hall asked if he was being detained. Dodge replied no and wanted to question Hall, but Hall ignored him. Hall then asked again if he was being detained, and Dodge replied yes. Dodge patted Hall down and questioned him about where he lived and if he had identification.
