Episode 481: DIY ‘Armor Penetrating’ Ammunition w/ Austin Thomas Jones

Austin

39 Minutes PG-13 Pete welcomes Austin Thomas Jones back to the show. Austin embarked upon a project that is controversial coming up with a way to skirt existing laws pertaining to armor penetrating rounds. The most interesting part is that it's open-source which will allow the individual to manufacture them in their home.

Episode 371: Everything You Wanted to Know About Virginia Gun Control, But Didn’t Know To Ask

Ron and Dan: Rich Liberals Protected By Guns…Why Not The Rest Of Us?

Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams: "Yesterday's Virginia pro-Second Amendment rally shocked the elites to their core. Propagandized by the mainstream media, they expected out-of-control white supremacists but found a peaceful group of all races and orientations. More importantly, the local government nullification movement is growing like wildfire, with local authorities openly vowing they would not enforce gun laws passed in Richmond that they consider unconstitutional." https://youtu.be/WORW-bt6Vkc

Law Enforcement Respects The Constitution?

With the 2nd Amendment rally scheduled for Richmond, Virginia’s “Lobby Day” now completed, those who warned against “agent provocateurs,” and other possible hazards, get to breathe a sigh of relief and be thankful for being wrong. The narrative that this was going to be an event dominated by “white supremacists” was proven empirically false by photos that came out showing a racially and politically diverse crowd of people who showed up to communicate to the world that they have one thing in common; their belief that the right to own firearms to protect themselves is a universal idea that...

Virginia Second Amendment Advocates Beware!

The Virginia senate has passed three gun bills that are now being sent to the house for consideration that would see it become one of the most restrictive states in America when it comes to firearms ownership. A reading of the laws would put Virginia close to New Jersey from a legal standpoint when it comes to the ease at which one will be able to procure property guaranteed by its own state constitution.  Bill SB35 which would “allow localities to ban guns from public events, actually would repeal the current law that restricts localities from enforcing ordinances that would prohibit the...

There’s No Correlation Between Gun Ownership, Mass Shootings, and Murder Rates

While I was fact checking today's Mises Daily article, I checked some correlation coefficients of my own so I didn't have to rely on Volokh's numbers as my only source. I approached the data a little differently than Volokh did and instead of using a subjective ranking by an organization like the Brady organization, I just looked at the rate of gun ownership in the state. After all, the argument is often that more guns and more gun owners leads to more violence. So, I looked at the correlation between the gun ownership rate (a percentage on the x axis) and the murder rate (n per 100,000...

Support Black Guns Matter

I sense a change in the gun debate.  People are realizing they have a right to protect themselves.  Maj Toure and Black Guns Matter are actively promoting and teaching people how to use guns and protect their right to self defense and he is doing it in communities that have traditionally been the target of gun control laws that deny people that right.  The message is being heard. Chicago State Rep. La Shawn Ford has supported federal gun laws in the past but now he is urging people to to arm themselves. “I think about it all the time,” Ford said of the shootings that plague his community....

Citizens Disobey New Zealand Gun Ban, Only 530 of 300,000 People Turned Guns In

In March, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the “first tranche” in a number of moves to restrict the rights of New Zealand citizens to protect themselves with firearms. This move was in direct response to the horrific murders that unfolded on March 15. Coincidentally, this is the exact move the terrorist who carried out these attacks had hoped for and predicted. The good news is, however, that most citizens are refusing to turn in their guns. The terrorist who murdered 50 people earlier this year was engaging in a classic propaganda of the deed in which he...

Jose also talks about behind the scenes info on gun lobbies. Jose recently resigned from the National Association for Gun Rights and has appeared on NRA TV. He gives insights into how they operate. Jose attended a Black Guns Matter sponsored event in NYC last week that got him excited and he shares his opinions on that great organization. 10 Myths of Gun Control ...
