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.

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.

Not California news I know, but it’s still worth spreading the word.
So, yet another over reaction by the administration of a school. An elementary school in Ohio has suspended a 10 year old for making a finger gun and “shooting” his friend in the head. Undoubtedly they were playing some sort of cops and robbers game during recess and having a good time. This whole “zero tolerance” BS that these schools follow is abused so often I even wonder if it does any good whatsoever. It doesn’t seem to deter kids, or adults, from bringing guns to schools and shooting the place up at random. So what’s the point? The only people this rule is hurting is the kid thats just playing a game with his friend and the kid that makes an honest mistake and tries to do the right thing by alerting the faculty like this kid.
It seems to me that the kid with the finger gun could be told that “we don’t like that game at this school” which I think is still ridiculous, but whatever, it’s a school, and the kid with the knife should have been applauded for being responsible and giving the knife to an adult. All thats happening is the students are learning that if they make a mistake like this to not tell anyone about it. So what happens when a kid came back from a hunting trip and forgets he has a rifle in his car? (I believe this has happened also)
So here is my take away. If I were still in school I wouldn’t go to the administration if it could at all be avoided. Brought a knife to school? oops, it stays in my backpack. Went hunting over the weekend and left my rifle in the car? (thats a whole other issue of responsibility there that I won’t get into) Guess it’s going under the seat, or I’m driving back home and missing my morning classes and getting in trouble for that (better than a police record)
The faculty at the school should be folks that the students can trust to not bust them for an honest mistake. Whatever happened to enforcing the spirit of the law, not the letter of the law?
Oh great. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown has decided to run for re-election. This nut-job is bad for California and needs to go.
“I promised that there would be no new taxes unless you the people voted for them, and you did.”
Thats just what we need is this guy or another guy asking us to raise taxes in California AGAIN to balance the budget.
Just announced today, The Smart System iP1, a .22-caliber pistol made by the German gun-maker Armatix GmbH, can only function with an accompanying wristwatch, which is sold separately, according to an article by Michael Rosenwald of The Washington Post.
When the RFID-equipped watch is activated by a PIN number and placed near the gun — like when a shooter grips the handle — it sends a signal to unlock the gun and a light on the back of the weapon turns green. (nothing will ever go wrong with this)
The pistol, which looks like a cross between Knight Rider, a Cylon, and Meagron, will sell for $1,399 and the watch (which is, of course, sold separately) is $399
