NRA Statement on Peruta v. California

Fairfax, Va. — The executive director of the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, Chris W. Cox, released the following statement Monday regarding the United States Supreme Court's denial of petition in the case of Peruta v. California:
"We are disappointed in the Court's rejection of the appeal in Peruta v. California, which now leaves millions of law-abiding Californians with no ability to bear arms outside the home.  As Justices Thomas and Gorsuch correctly stated, too many courts have been treating the Second Amendment as a second-class right.  That should not be allowed to stand.  As the Supreme Court stated in its landmark decision in Heller v. District of Columbia, the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms for self-defense.  The framers of our Constitution did not intend to limit that right to the home.  We look forward to a future Court affirming that the right to keep and bear arms is as much a part of our Constitution as the other enumerated rights that it protects. We will not stop fighting until a future Court affirms this fundamental right."

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.

Ruger MK 4 Recall!!!

Courtesy of Bayou Resaissance Man

Heads up, Ruger Mark IV owners

Ruger is recalling all of its new Mark IV .22LR pistols manufactured before June 1st, 2017.  You'll find details at the company's Web site.  If you enter your pistol's serial number into the provided box, it'll tell you whether or not your gun is subject to the recall, and provide further information.

Ruger's promising a free magazine with every pistol sent back for repair, which is nice of them.  Even so, I'm glad Ruger is standing behind their products (as one would expect from a company like that).

Advertising on the Gun Blog Black List

For all the SEO Merchants out there, please stop sending me e-mails asking to "Buy" a "Sponsored" Post on the GBBL.

The GBBL DOES NOT accept paid advertisements or sponsored posts.

Also please stop asking me to add your "COMMERCIAL" Website that has NO blog to the GBBL.

If you only have a blog that you might update 3 times in the last year but the rest of your site is nothing but trying to sell your products, you will not be listed.

I'm sorry for having to post this, but after getting 14 e-mails in 7 days from 14 different SEO and "Advertisers", I'm tired of typing back that the GBBL doesn't accept "posts" paid or otherwise.  Especially when I have ALREADY posted this information: Guest Posting - For The Record

And remember, if you want your blog listed in the "Regional Directory", please e-mail me your information.
