See You at the 2020 SHOT Show!

Hey everyone!

Only a couple of weeks until SHOT SHOW 2020, and we are locked and loaded, looking forward to seeing you there!

This will be our second year attending, and going by the response we received last year, we are excited to see old friends and meet many new ones!

We are looking to partner with retailers, wholesalers, buyers and dealers of high integrity, that wish to carry one of the most revolutionary, yet “common sense” gun cleaning products on the market today.

It’s time to “Pitch the Patch” and stop using a 2-dimensional flat square patch to clean a 3-dimensional cylindrical barrel! BarrelBuddy solves so many of the hassles and ineffectiveness you’ve put up with for years in maintaining your firearms.

It’s been a big 2019 for BarrelBuddy, as we were featured in the NRA’s American Rifleman, Shooting Illustrated, and American Hunter. The USCCA’s Concealed Carry Magazine spotlighted us in their “GEAR WE LOVE” section, and we were even used to clean the weapons in the feature film THE RELIANT!

We also started our campaign to raise $1,000,000 to prevent Veteran Suicide, donating $5 for every order you place for BarrelBuddy.

We are looking forward to an awesome 2020, and hope it is blessed and prosperous for all y’all!

A Federal Agent’s Observation from Virginia

I have written a lot recently about the Second Amendment Sanctuary movement taking place with many counties in Virginia. Virginia isn’t alone, but it has now become the epicenter of this movement. The reason for this is the Democratic party swept the last election in November. They now control the Virginia Governorship, House and Senate.

The Democrat’s have been pushing a series of draconian gun control measures, but were unable to get them through because the Republicans controlled part of the legislature. That is now no longer the case. As a result, counties all around Virginia have declared themselves Sanctuary counties and have refused to enforce any of these draconian measures. 

The Democrats will be sworn in this January, 2020 and have vowed to pass these totalitarian measures. The lines are being drawn there and this could become a powder keg.

What I have below is a statement being given to the Fairfax County Virginia assembly providing observations regarding the 2nd Amendment Sanctuary movement taking place, and its potential to start a civil war.

This man identifies himself as someone who is a plain-clothed federal agent, so no one knows that he represents law enforcement in his daily travels around Virginia.

In the video below are his observations at ground level as he meets people in his travels around Virginia. It is a very sobering speech and plea to the legislature. Please watch it.

The Stories from Virginia Keep Coming

The Stories From Virginia Keep Coming

In the last several posts I mentioned that counties all over Virginia are declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries. There are now over 25 counties that have made this declaration. In the recent November elections, the Democrats had won both the Virginia house and senate. This opened the door for their rabid antigun agenda.

After the election, counties around the state started declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries. Now a Culpeper county sheriff has stated that he will “deputize thousands” to defend gun rights should incoming Democrats use their legislative positions to enact more gun control in Virginia. 

The sheriff of Culpeper county is Scott Jenkins, he also stated:

  • “Every Sheriff and Commonwealth Attorney in Virginia will see the consequences if our General Assembly passes further unnecessary gun restrictions. “Red Flag” laws without due process will create enormous conflict as well.”
  • “America has more guns than citizens and murder has long been illegal. At best, the proposed gun restrictions will disarm or handicap our law-abiding in their defense and possibly cause a criminal to choose another tool for evil.”

He made no bones about it; he is saying that he will call out the militia to defend our God given rights.

The Democrat’s take control in January and they have vowed to implement their radical agenda. We will see how this plays out in the next few months. 

It Happened Again

It Happened Again

As predicted in my last post more counties around the country are declaring themselves gun sanctuaries. In Virginia which has turned into a hard-blue state; recently, and who’s Governor and legislators are all Democratic they have promised some very restrictive gun control laws. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Here are two more articles about Virginia from Breitbart news:

  • More Virginia counties declare themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries.
  • Virginia Sheriff will not enforce unconstitutional gun laws.

In an article from Reason magazine you will see that Counties in Wisconsin, Florida, Virginia, Arizona, and Texas became part of a growing “Second Amendment sanctuary” movement this month.

This article describes a Virginia House delegate Ken Plum saying: “The notion that you can have a locality void a state law by declaring yourself a sanctuary simply is not going to hold up in court.”

It is amazing how these Democrat’s see things two ways. It is perfectly fine to declare immigration sanctuaries but not gun sanctuaries. As noted in the article though, “Laws, at the end of the day, need somebody to enforce them, and many sheriffs and police officers in counties where Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions have been passed support their communities’ decisions.”

Patrick Henry had predicted this long ago. He was a staunch Antifederalist and didn’t want the constitution ratified. I will discuss his statement about why he believed that the constitution was flawed and how it led to the situation we are into today in my next post.

Some Great News

Some Great News    

Before I get to the great news, I want to start out with a few questions that I wish someone would have asked the former presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke.

It would of went like this:

  • The federal government has passed immigration laws correct?
  • There are many cities that have declared themselves as sanctuaries and do not enforce those laws correct?
  • You have voiced your support for those cities correct?
  • Therefore, it is perfectly fine to ignore federal laws when they don’t suit you correct?
  • What will you do then when cities and counties declare themselves sanctuaries from federal gun laws? Invade them or let them be as you do with the immigration sanctuary cities?  

The great news is that this has happened in a Florida county. The county has become the first in the state to pass a resolution declaring itself a “Second Amendment Sanctuary” in support of gun rights. The resolution, which passed by a 4-0 vote, says that Lake County’s law-abiding gun owners are safe from having their firearms taken away.

I would have loved to see his response because it is happening now.

You can read about it here.

He Helped Felons build AR-15’s and They dropped the Charges

He Helped Felons build AR-15’s and They dropped the Charges

It appears that the ATF had a man Joseph Roh who had been charged and indicted for breaking federal firearms laws.  It is alleged that Roh had a business where anyone could walk into his warehouse and walkout with an AR-15. He had even been warned by ATF in person that he was breaking the law.

If this was true it should have been a slam dunk for the prosecutors. However, this is where it gets interesting. The ATF has decided to drop all charges. Why you ask? They were afraid that a ruling in the case could potentially harm existing gun control laws. They were particularly worried about the 1968 Gun Control Act and that a wrong ruling could, “seriously undermine the ATF’s ability to trace and regulate firearms nationwide.”

The NRA tweeted: He sold guns to felons, abusers, and prohibited persons. The Feds let him go to avoid hurting gun control efforts.

NRA has always fought for the FULL PROSECUTION of gun criminals – no plea bargaining, no parole, and definitely not just letting someone off.

What the Feds were worried about is that a US District Court Judge James V. Selna’s interpretation of the law, convicted felons and other people prohibited from possessing firearms would be allowed to legally acquire all the parts necessary to assemble an AR-15-style rifle and other weapons, according to federal prosecutors.

Roh was selling 80% lowers the part, which surrounds the trigger area of an AR-15, requires some additional machining and drilling before it is considered a regulated firearm under the law. Then after a while he started hosting build parties where the customer installs the part into their machine and pushes the start button.

What they were worried about is the lowers are usable when the remaining 20 percent of work is done to finish them. This case would have drawn attention to these lowers and their relationship to the Second Amendment.

The Truth About Guns

I came across a very informative Gun Blog site the other day. This blog has a lot of information on many gun topics and facts that refute the left’s lunacy for gun control.

You will be able to get quick information from here on many key topic examples below. This will give you facts and truth when defending the second amendment. 

The sad part is I don’t think it matters how many facts or how much truth you give a leftist, they will never change, because they are zealots that believe they’re right and will refuse to let the facts get in their way.

You might ask why am I pointing out another blog? The reason is simple, we are at war; primarily an information war right now. Make no mistake about it we are fighting for our very liberty. If I find something useful, I am going to pass it along because we are on the same page. 

Here are a few topics that are covered by Thetruthaboutguns.com

Defensive Gun Use vs. Murder Rate

Facts About the AR-15 Rifle

There are many more topics that are covered, take a look and enjoy it.

We Need to be more like Europe and Japan

The leftwing makes this statement all the time, that “we need to be more like other countries.” In fact, they say this when it comes to socialism, government run healthcare, and guns. It really helps underscore how much they hate the freedom our country allows the individual. They want everything dictated and run by a collectivist government.  

When it comes to guns, that must mean that there is no violence in these socialist utopias. So, let’s look and see how the disarmed sheep are getting along.

In Japan, two schoolgirls were killed, and sixteen others were injured when a knife wielding man started to slash at the kids standing in line for a bus.

To get a gun in Japan you need jump through these hurdles:

  • Take an all-day class.
  • Pass a range test with a 95%.
  • Pass Mental health and drug tests.
  • They then will survey your friends, relatives and co-workers to see if you should own a gun.

There are even more steps, as well as the police having wide ranging power to search and seize weapons. All this just to own a shotgun or air gun, all others are banned.

In England, almost all semi-automatic and pump-action rifles and shotguns were banned in the 1980’s. They then imposed a near total ban on handguns in the 90’s.

In 2017, gun crimes increased by 27% and knife crimes and acid attacks are off the charts. Then in 2018, the total number of homicides (which includes murder and manslaughter) surged 12 percent from the previous year, to 701 in England and Wales, for the year ending in March, the Office for National Statistics said. Police-recorded knife crimes have also ballooned 16 percent to 40,147. Gun crime saw a 2 percent uptick with 6,492 offenses over the same time period.

You see, the weapons can be banned but that doesn’t matter. What we have isn’t a weapons problem, it is a human nature problem. If you ban one means, people hell bent on killing will use something else.

All the solutions that the socialists are proposing will only affect the law abiding citizen and turn us into sheep in a world where the wolf population is exploding. I say no thanks to any of their solutions. I will keep my firearms.

A very Short Video on why we have the Second Amendment

If you’re like me, you have grown sick and tired of the gun grabbers saying this:  “You don’t need an AR-15 or an AK-47 to shoot deer.” I clinch my fists and grit my teeth every time I hear that. My response is always this…

“WE DON’T HAVE A SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHT TO DEER HUNT! WE HAVE A SECOND AMMENDMENT RIGHT TO PROTECT US FROM A TYRANICAL GOVERNMENT. NAMLY THOSE IN GOVERNMENT, LIKE YOU, WHO WANT TO TAKE MY GUNS WHILE THE STATE MAINTAINS A MONOPLY ON VIOLINCE.”

I believe that they know this, they just think everyone else is stupid. After all, they are the elites, the ruling class and we need them to guide us and care for us. What a load of crap!

Here is a quick (under two-minute) video on why we have the second amendment. A great resource to have if you need it…
