Social Experiment: Reblog if you are American and know of at least one family member (distant or not) that owns a gun.

cerebralzero:

Statistically speaking if your family contains more than 3 adults there is a high likelihood you are related to someone who owns a gun because roughly 33% of Americans are firearms owners.

If we were talking about a country like Switzerland that likelihood would be even high since about 50% of their population are gun owners.

No one in my direct family owns any firearms(other than myself obviously) but I do have an uncle and a cousin who hunt and own firearms.

M4 Carbine Gets A Makeover

In footage taken at Ft. Riley, KS, Program Executive Office Soldier’s Product Manager Individual Weapons explains what it is doing to “up-gun” its standard carbine. Changes include adding an automatic trigger and heavier barrel, and making the gun more ergonomic. Once an M4 undergoes these modifications, it becomes an M4A1. All M4s in the Army inventory are scheduled for upgrading.

Salvo 12 — SilencerCo. Firearm Suppressors

The SilencerCo Salvo 12 is the first and only commercially-viable shotgun suppressor on earth. It represents an incredible advance in engineering and technology, and carries with it the same quality and service as SilencerCo’s other products.

Every year, millions of sportsmen and women venture into the fields to hunt. While rifle and handgun suppressors continue to increase in popularity, shotgun owners have been without a real solution for ear protection. Some choose hearing preservation in the form of earmuffs or plugs for relief in controlled environments, but spurn their use in the field or in a home protection scenario, where the ability to detect other sounds is critical.

The Salvo 12 is modular in nature — the shooter can add or remove sections to balance their sound suppression, weight and length needs. At its full length of 12 inches, it brings sound down to 137 dB at the muzzle — well below the 140 dB hearing-safe level set by OSHA. 

Whether you grab a shotgun for hunting, shooting clays or home defense, the Salvo 12 fits most common shotguns — provided you have a choked barrel. The suppressor attaches to the the existing choke threads via an adapter. Due to differences in shotgun manufacturer and choke preference, it is important that you select the correct adapter.

The Salvo 12 is just one more example of the type of innovation that has garnered a fiercely loyal customer base for SilencerCo.

Gun-control advocates, especially groups like the Brady Campaign and Moms Demand Action, can’t propagandize anything pro-gun control legislation without a dead body. The younger, the better. It’s like a fucked-up brand of pedophilia.

Forty-five years ago today, two human beings first set foot on the moon. On July 20, 1969, the lunar module of Apollo 11 touched down in the Sea of Tranquility, and forever changed how we view our place in the universe. When I think about the fact that four and a half decades ago, at the very moment I am writing this, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were walking on the freakin’ moon, I am humbled and inspired.

I’ve combined some of my favorite photos from Apollo 11 with some of the actual words spoken by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins.

If you’d like to relive the historic mission moment by moment, word by word, and photo by photo, head over to SpaceLog

The mere fact that humans have to teach their children not to steal, rape and murder is one of the best and most overlooked argumentative points for gun ownership and concealed carry that is out there.

Because, someone somewhere out there, didn’t learn those lessons or those lessons didn’t take… and if you ever encounter that man or woman in a back alley or a dark gas station parking lot, physically having a piece of equipment to save your ass is better than emotionally hoping he or she learned those lessons as a child.

You will thank God, in Heaven above, for that handgun.

You got young enlisted guys, 18-to-22 years old — they’ve suddenly been thrust into a situation with extraordinary responsibility where they now have access to all of your private records,” Snowden said. “Now, in the course of their daily work, they stumble across something that is completely unrelated to their work in any sort of necessary sense, for example, an intimate nude photo of someone in a sexually compromising situation, but they’re extremely attractive.

So what do they do, they turn around in their chair and show their coworker. And their coworker says, “Oh, hey, that’s great. Send that to Bill down the way.” And then Bill sends it to George, George sends it to Tom. Sooner or later, this person’s whole life has been seen by all of these other people. It’s never reported, nobody ever knows about it because the auditing of these systems is very weak. The fact that your private images, records of your private lives, records of your intimate moments have been taken from your private communications stream, from the intended recipient, and given to the government without any specific authorization, without any specific need, is in itself a violation of your rights? Why is that in a government database?

Wherever I stand, I stand with Israel. 

If Gaza was Israel’s enemy, Gaza wouldn’t have existed to this day. Israel’s enemy is not Gaza. And, just as Hamas’ actions do not make Gaza guilty of them; neither is it Israel’s fault for the actions of a few Israelis in the IDF who let their emotions get the better of them.
As for Hamas. If you keep poking a caged grizzly with a stick, or even multiple sticks at the same time on occasion, you’re eventually going to be at fault for the mauling you receive. The Jews are the same way after being pushed to the brink in the 1940s. They will NEVER AGAIN be pushed to that point and they will never again allow an entity to grow strong enough to even think about doing that. 

Israel is not just going to war for Israel. They are also going to war to assist the people of Gaza so that they are not used as shields or excuses for Hamas. So that their mosques and schools aren’t used as rocket launching points. They are going to war so that, if they win, they will never have to bomb one of those important sites ever again!
They will never let Gaza rise to such a serious power… at least, not while Hamas — or any other terrorist organization — is running the show. And Hamas, for years, has in every instance instigated their own mugging.
And, I do hope Israel sends each and every one of those virgin seeking “men” to the goats in their afterlife.
That is all I have to say.
