I don’t know if you’ve noticed lately, but since the passing of the “California Safe Handgun” act, or whatever the hell it’s called (it requires all new semi automatic handguns sold in California needs to have technology called micro-stamping included that distinctly mark the cartridge used) Anyway, several manufacturers have already said they are going to discontinue selling handguns to California because of this, Ruger and Smith and Wesson. Well, what you may not know is that there are hundreds of handguns ready to expire off the list this year, the image above is only a few. Check out the California Approved Handgun Roster
Just search for all firearms, and you’ll notice pretty quickly that 90% of them are expiring at some point this year. What does this mean? It means that unless these manufactures adopt California’s ridiculous requirements for handguns, they will begin falling off the list, and you won’t be able to purchase a new one in California. Which means eventually, with no new guns coming into California, you won’t be able to buy one, because no one will be selling theirs in a private party transaction since they can’t get anything else.
Write to your congressmen and tell them to overturn this ridiculous law requiring this micro-stamping. The list seems to be up to date, I didn’t see Lealand Yee on it.
Should soldiers on military bases be armed at all times if they choose to be? I think so. I whole heartedly agree with Sgt. Lunsford that soldiers on base should have the choice to be armed.
The same holds true in civilian life as well, as evidenced by the counties in California and other states who have allowed private citizens to carry a concealed weapon if they so choose. But that is a different topic.

The California State Senate late Friday morning voted to suspend Yee, and fellow Democrat Senators Ron Calderon and Rod Wright, with pay, “until all criminal proceedings currently pending against them have been dismissed,” according to the Sacramento Bee’s Capitol Alert. The vote was 28-1.
Why is it that people in Government get “Suspended with pay” when being investigated for extreme negligence, corruption or something? How about they get suspended without pay, and will receive backpay should they be exonerated? That way at least we aren’t paying criminals while they are going through their trial.

The owner of a California gun parts store, Ares Armor, says he plans to take legal action after federal agents raided his business, confiscating computers, customer lists and 80 percent lower receivers as part of an investigation into alleged federal firearms violations. This after Ares Armor received a restraining order against the ATF.
Dimitrios Karras, owner of Ares Armor in National City, told Fox5SanDiego.com the raid by Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents took place just days after the company obtained a temporary restraining order against the agency.
The ATF says their investigation into Ares Armor stems from the sale of a new plastic version of the 80 percent lower receiver, which can be used to build AR-15 rifles, according to the report.
Now other suppliers of 80% lowers is suspending their sale. According to Polymer80.com
Some of you may have taken notice that we are no longer offering the G150 80% lower for sale on our site. We want to be clear that:
A. We were NOT shutdown in anyway by the ATF
B. We were NOT raided by the ATF
C. We have NOT even been contacted or directed by the ATF in any way, shape or form
D. We have done this VOLUNTARILY and PROACTIVELY
This whole customer list thing is kind of ridiculous if you ask me in a couple different ways. 1. If these are off list, non serialized, non DROSed lowers then why did Ares Armor keep records of who bought them? And 2. What prompted the ATF to go raid them in the first place?

So, this is kinda ridiculous. Why do “gun people” get so butt hurt about stuff like this? Everyone is pissed at Cheaper Than Dirt when they jacked up all their prices after the Sandy Hook shooting then everyone freaked out and purchased EVERYTHING gun related, cleaning out stocks and reserves everywhere (something from which we still have not completely recovered).
What is it with all the over reacting and outrage? You don’t like that CTD jacked up all their prices? Fine, then don’t shop there? Afraid that all guns and ammo will be banned? Not very likely to happen, calm down.
For crying out loud, let a business do what it thinks it needs to do to stick around. Gun people can be some of the most sensitive, easily offended, and skittish group of people I’ve ever seen. Sometimes even more than bleeding heart, utopian loving liberals.
