gun shop watchlist?

The idea is simple. A private network for verified Federal Firearms Licensees to share and report incidents they have with suspicious buyers, and communicate with each other. When one shop in the network posts an alert, other dealers within driving distance are alerted via email, in-app notification, and/or text message.

“FFLs deny gun purchases for all sorts of reasons; including mental health, straw sales, intoxication, violent comments in the store, etc. … FFLs are on the front line protecting our community from bad actors already. Why not make their jobs easier?” Banks argued.


The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have often and repeatedly advised FFLs they have the right to refuse any sale they feel is unlawful or suspect.


Interesting idea, I don't see any objection to it.

any thoughts on Gadsden/Gay Pride flag hybrid?


Lessons learned from Westgate Mall.

from the guy that was head of INTERPOL at the time. I'll just let the video speak for itself.

Published on May 18, 2016
Ronald Noble, founder of RKN Global and former INTERPOL Secretary General, believes that guns in the right hands can protect the many innocent persons targeted for slaughter by terrorists. This is not an American argument, nor a political argument. In these horrific situations, law-abiding armed citizens have helped protect others and literally saved lives, and the world should be made aware of this reality.
This video shows how brave armed civilians helped hundreds of people survive the bloody massacre at the Westgate Shopping Mall just a few years ago. In the hands of law-abiding citizens, guns can and do save lives.
At RKN Global, Noble continues to provide the tools for governments, businesses and citizens to protect themselves against terrorism, identity theft, corruption, and passport fraud.
Ronald K. Noble is the founder of RKN Global and the Noble Newspaper of Security & Crime.
Between 2000-2014, Mr. Noble served as INTERPOL Secretary General. He became the first official to visit all of its 190 member countries and is credited with transforming INTERPOL into a global, 24/7 operation--regularly deploying Incident Response Teams (IRTs) worldwide in response to serious crimes, terrorist attacks, and natural disasters.


Would it be bad taste for a gun store to have a

gay pride sale, including discounts on training?

spear guns for home defense


fox family at shooting range

LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) — A family of foxes has taken up residence in a portion of the Clark County Shooting Complex near Decatur and Grand Teton. Their presence has forced a part of the range to close down.The mother fox and her three kits were spotted at the rifle and pistol range.

"Wow poor planning on the fox's part," said Clark County Shooting Complex's Program Administrator Steve Carmichael. "The more I get thinking about it, we're not giving them near enough credit because they're probably safer in here than anywhere they could be," Carmichael added.

German gun culture

I never knew gun ownership was that high there. I always had Norway and Canada as being higher.

Gov Deal's veto message


Agree or disagree, at least it is a cogent and rational explanation. At least more rational than the standard "shoot outs in the classroom" claims.

guns in churches, mosques, synagogues, Druid oak groves etc

If as liberals, we support the separation of Church and State when people like Pat Roberson opens his mouth. Doesn't it stand to that we should also oppose the State telling churches that they can't allow guns? It seems to me that Jefferson's wall is brick on both sides. While I see a reasonable argument for a compelling State interest in banning them from bars, or any other business where recreational drugs are consumed on the premises, I don't see it when it comes to churches.
