NSSF Declares August National Shooting Sports Month

NSSF_ShootingSportsMonthThere are countless celebration days and months in America, and now the shooting sports have one of their own. The National Shooting Sports Foundation has declared August to be National Shooting Sports Month, a time to celebrate one of America’s great pastimes — target shooting — and to encourage newcomers and experienced shooters to #LETSGOSHOOTING.

NSSF developed the celebration month to focus the attention of everyone in the shooting sports community — shooting ranges, firearms retailers, manufacturers and recreational shooters — on the fun and excitement of target shooting.

An estimated 50 million Americans participate in target shooting sports, and millions more have expressed interest in learning about rifle, shotgun and handgun shooting, according to NSSF research.

“With so much going on in people’s lives today, the shooting sports offer an opportunity to tune out distractions, learn a new skill, socialize and share their experiences,” said NSSF President and CEO Steve Sanetti. “It’s important to remember to pass on our traditions and to reflect on our unique freedoms that make participating in them possible.”

Experienced shooters are encouraged to introduce family members and friends to this rewarding lifetime activity, and newcomers without mentors will discover a safe, supportive introduction to recreational shooting at a range near them.

To help people find ways to celebrate, NSSF has launched www.ShootingSportsMonth.org. Among its many interactive features, the site contains an easy range search by state, events and sales promotions across the country and many other resources for target shooters of all skill levels.

Safety, of course, goes hand in hand with enjoying the shooting sports. Following safe firearms handling procedures and securely storing firearms when not in use are priorities for shooters. Find more about firearm safety at www.ShootingSportsMonth.org.

“It’s going to be fun month,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Director, Shooting Range Services. “And we want to know how everyone is celebrating. Tell us on our Facebook page, share your Instagram and Twitter posts with the hashtag #LetsGoShooting, let’s make this month one to remember.”

NRA Launches New Facebook Page

NRA_FacebookWe figured something was up when the National Rifle Association‘s old Facebook page @NationalRifleAssociation began transitioning to a NRA-ILA (Institute for Legislative Action) page recently.  Well, now it’s Facebook Official.

The NRA has now officially announced the launch of their new Facebook page with an easier to remember (and tag) handle @NRA.  Head on over and connect with them today (and, while you’re at it, be sure to like @GunLink.info as well).

The gun rights organization’s Executive Vice President, Wayne LaPierre said of the launch, “I’ve told our members many times, NRA doesn’t get its power from our headquarters building in Washington; our power comes from our members and their unflinching commitment to the Second Amendment.

LaPierre went on to encourage all NRA members and gun owners to not just follow the new main NRA page, but also those of the other arms of the group, including NRA-ILA (which you may already follow from before the transition), NRATV, their various publications, and their new CCW insurance program, Carry Guard.

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association bills itself as America’s oldest civil rights and sportsmen’s group boasting more than 5 million members who fight to defend the Second Amendment and provide firearms safety training and education.  If you are not already a member, you can join the National Rifle Association here and save on membership dues.

HuffPo Pulls Anti-Gun Article After People Notice Them Advocating Gun Theft

br_gungrab_huffpoIt is not as if a story like this will surprise anyone who has taken any notice of the anti-gun “movement” for the past decade or so.  That crowd has a rich history of having no respect or appreciation for the rule of law and for projecting their own sick personality disorders onto the rest of society.  This behavior can be seen frequently when gun-grabbers spout off their sick world views, such as “nobody needs a gun unless you plan on killing someone” or when they advocate new (and useless) gun control laws which are in direct conflict with state preemption laws or, almost universally, the United States Constitution.  This has been the case for decades, if not centuries, and the advent of the internet and the growth of social media has added some fun new twists into the mix.

Further evidence of the bizarre mindset of many associated with the anti-gun movement can be seen on just about any pro-gun social media page, where the talk inevitably devolves into obsessive conversation about male genitalia.  Anti-gunners are so desperate to decry “lax gun laws” that they cannot be bothered to figure out what the laws are and end up committing felonies, as Katie Couric and her team did during the production of their gun control hit piece.  They also take to social media to continue spreading their anti-law-and-order platform, like when the absurdly-named Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (nee National Coalition to Ban Handguns) recently for citizens to misuse the 911 system and waste police resources by sending police on an emergency run any time they notice someone carrying an open or concealed firearm.  “For the children.

The latest group of social media malcontents is a small contingent (perhaps as small as one) of anti-gun trolls operating a large number of Twitter accounts whose main shtick has been violent, potty-mouthed attacks on anyone who disagrees with them (whom they have, again, strangely sexualized with the nickname “gun humpers”), sharing photos of their sex toy collections, and promoting vandalism of public spaces with anti-gun messages.  As if online harassment, stickers, and spray paint were not enough, this group has now apparently graduated from cyberbullying and petty crime to promoting out-and-out felonious theft of firearms, to include breaking and entering and burglarizing of people’s homes, garages, and vehicles.   Continue reading

From My Cold, Dead iPhone

Apple Changes Gun Emoji from Revolver to Squirt Gun, Twitter Snubs Olympic Events, Microsoft Trades Space Gun for Revolver

iGunEmojiIn an apparent attempt at political correctness, Apple is trading in their six-shooter for a squirt gun in their latest update, which also includes a plethora of diversity-minded updates to the emoji set used on iPhones, iPads, iPods, and other Apple devices.

According to this week’s release from Apple, “[t]his exciting update brings more gender options to existing characters, including new female athletes and professionals, adds beautiful redesigns of popular emoji, a new rainbow flag and more family options.”  Thank goodness!  Our Apple devices were barely usable with their misogynistic, homophobic emojis full of hatred and violence and cartoon guns.   Continue reading

The Gun Control Machine’s Brain Trust of Astroturf Sleeper Agents Awaken

The robots have received the signal – MSM coverage of a shooting in public – and the hand-wringing, NRA blaming, and gun control pushing has begun.

Nevermind that the latest incident in the Tennessee, as with most of these incidents, happened in a gun free zone.  Nevermind the fact that Tennessee residents have been worried about their safety since at least 2010 because of the theater’s “no guns allowed” policy.  And nevermind the fact that early reports indicate that, despite shots being fired, the only injuries during the incident were from the scumbag discharging some pepper spray and trying to hatchet someone.

Without further ado, let’s look at some of the buzz that immediately swamped Twitter immediately following the attack…  Continue reading
