DFN Will Return After the First of the Year

Yeah, you might have noticed that the daily installment of “Daily Firearms News” has not been showing up at the blog recently. Many of you have emailed me about it so I thought I would address it here.

With the holidays fast approaching, I have not really had the time to tackle it on a daily basis like I would like… I honestly am surprised that I have had the time to do any of the few blog posts that I have done over the last several days. After the first of the year, DFN will return as a regular feature. I have a lot on my plate until after the 1st so as I am able to slide back into full speed with the blog reviews, articles, DFN, and what not will all be back to full strength ASAP.

Thanks,

– Your humble blog keeper

GunUp.com Now Selling Guns

Alternate Headline: Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL battle station!

Gunup.com

Its officially up and running… the long rumored online gun shop has been added to GunUp.com You can go check it out right here. They are still only carrying a very, very limited number of firearms, but I am sure that will change as time goes on.

I will also vouch for the fact that Dan Hall and Caleb Giddings are some of the best people out there to work with… They will take good care of you and make things right if there is ever a problem. Go buy a gun. Go! Go NOW!

US vs Miller – Court battle where US Argued 2nd Amend Protects “Military Style Weapons”

Yep, Here is the full run down… but basically in 1939 a man was arrested for having a sawed off shotgun and claimed the defense of “the 2nd Amendment”. Here is what US attorneys used to argue against his defense:

1.The NFA is intended as a revenue-collecting measure and therefore within the authority of the Department of the Treasury.
2.The defendants transported the shotgun from Oklahoma to Arkansas, and therefore used it in interstate commerce.
3.The Second Amendment protects only the ownership of military-type weapons appropriate for use in an organized militia.
4.The “double barrel 12-gauge Stevens shotgun having a barrel less than 18 inches in length, bearing identification number 76230″ was never used in any militia organization.

Notice also that they openly acknowledge in #1 that they are placing a “poll tax” on a God given constitutional right.

The NRA Press Conference You’ve Been Waiting for

Here is the long awaited press conference where NRA President Wayne LaPierre addresses the slaughter that took place at Sandy Hook.

He’s right, Those teachers couldnt pray hard enough to have a gun in the hand to defend themselves with. He goes on to say “Why is the idea of a gun good when it is used to protect the president of our country, but bad when its used to protect our children in their schools”.

NRA News Release

And I quote:

The National Rifle Association of America is made up of four million moms and dads, sons and daughters – and we were shocked, saddened and heartbroken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in Newtown.

Out of respect for the families, and as a matter of common decency, we have given time for mourning, prayer and a full investigation of the facts before commenting.

The NRA is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again.

The NRA is planning to hold a major news conference in the Washington, DC area on Friday, December 21.

Details will be released to the media at the appropriate time.
