The Armed Citizen Response To The Greenwood Park Mall Shooting

After the fight is over, a another fight begins...

At approximately 5:56 PM on July 17th, 2022, a deeply flawed and defective young person opened fire with a rifle at the Greenwood Park Mall in Greenwood, Indiana. While the attacker did accrue casualties, he himself was nearly immediately neutralized by 22-year-old Elisjsha Dicken, an armed citizen, who was at the mall shopping with his girlfriend. With his GLOCK pistol, Dicken engaged the attacker at an initial distance of 40 yards, successfully hitting him with 8 out of 10 shots fired.

Dicken’s actions prove that once again, a gun in the hand is better than a welfare queen government employee on the phone, if they even bother to answer or show up at all…

Michael Moore Wants To-Repeal The Second Amendment

Being armed means you don't have to do what cretins like Michael Moore say.

In the wake of some tragic media-amplified events, the usual round of regime-approved stooges have been (again) making their thoughts on firearms confiscation known. Of course, it’s the standard talking points. “Ban Assault Weapons” (whatever those are), “Register Firearms”, “Close the XYZ Loophole”, that sort of thing. They have a cheatsheet, and they fall back on it as a matter of rote. Whether it’s out of conviction or just job security, the stooges do stoogelike things for the shot-callers in the regime. Of course, they themselves are armed, or have hired golems close at hand. But god forbid you want an AR-15. Apparently so-called “weapons of war” don’t have a place in citizen hands, despite the fact that the Second Amendment by the book guarantees us the right to have real weapons of war, i.e. an M4A1.

Some of the more wily stooges know this, and thus, they campaign for the jugular - the repeal of the Second Amendment. Along those lines, noted gravitational distortion and champion eater Michael Moore has published a screed calling for just that, the repeal of the Second Amendment. To be fair, this would be the correct procedure to enact gun control, but people like Mikey fail to understand the process and the consequences…

M-LOK Vs Keymod - Which Is Better?

A Keymod Handguard and an M-LOK Handguard for an AR-15. Components courtesy of Radical Firearms.

Whether it’s your first rodeo with the AR-15 platform, or your fifth, you’ve undoubtedly been faced with an array of rail attachment systems in your defensive rifle purchasing process. You do know that funky metallic thing around your AR-15’s barrel can have things like lights, lasers, and bipods attached to it, right?

For years, the only real option for attaching accessories to your AR-pattern rifle, or many other firearm types, was the Picatinny rail. Known as MIL-STD-1913 in military circles, this familiar rail system was a standardized descendant of the civilian Weaver rail system. The Picatinny rail was made “official” in the 1990s with the introduction of the M4A1 carbine. Citizen AR-15s, especially after the 2004 AWB sunset, soon followed suit with Picatinny rails. Despite it’s ease of use, complaints remained about the weight of the handguards, and the ergonomics.

Enter Magpul’s M-LOK and Keymod…

What NYSRPA v Bruen Means For Second Amendment Radicals

A GLOCK 30 45 ACP Pistol. Soon, people in New York and other places will be able to carry this easily.

On the morning of June 23rd, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States finally issued it’s opinion on the case of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association vs Bruen. At stake was the fundamental right to keep and bear arms as acknowledged by the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, and whether it applied outside of the home or not. In a 6-3 vote, the Court has ruled that the right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental right, and must be treated as such by the government. In an extraordinarily well-drafted opinion, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote that the right to keep and bear arms is not a “second-class right subject to an entirely different body of rules than the other Bill of Rights guarantees…”

To say this is titanic and beneficial to us is an understatement. And in a positive way, the nuance is in the details. So, what does the NYSRPA v Bruen decision mean for us Second Amendment Radicals?

Biden Regime Moving To Limit Commercial Sales Of M855

M855 (XM855) 5.56mm ammunition from Winchester.

It’s no secret the regime of Joseph Robinette Biden, Junior has it out for Second Amendment Radicals and armed citizens. Those calling the shots and taking advantage of that befuddled old man don’t like the thought of armed citizens who can say no. To be fair, the government has almost never been friendly to those who choose to take responsibility for their own lives, but the current regime has seemingly made it an action item on their agenda.

With even the current “deal” of a gun control framework looking like weak sauce amd potentially DOA, the regime is hitting all the angles to ram through some sort of anti-2A move to help bolster their dismal poll numbers. The latest angle is to attack the ammunition supply, by restricting the sale of excess production from the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant, aka LCAAP

Top Summer Carry Guns

Sure, an FN FNX-45 could be a summer carry gun, but you would have to work at it...

This article is part of a continuing partnership with Primary Arms, enjoy!

While the sunshine might be good for keeping the solar failsafe red dot charged on your handgun, unless you’re open carrying it, you’re going to want to ditch that larger frame pistol for something lighter and more compact.

There are usually a few things you’ll want to look for in a summertime pistol, like one with a smaller profile and barrel, something more lightweight, and an affordable firearm that operates dependably.

Manufacturers like Sig Sauer, GLOCK, and Springfield have recently come out with micro-compact pistols that increase round capacity up to 15 rounds and can run optics but still may be too bulky or too expensive for some users.

The market is full of small-frame pistol options, the models discussed below favor reduced profile and weight above all else, so you may want to consider a few of the following as your favored pick for summertime carry.

Thoughts On The Situation In Uvalde Texas

The AR15. The modern rifle progressives love to hate.

It’s looking like 2022 is going to be a rather bad remix of 2020. Supply chain issues, riot season closing in on us for various sundry reasons, and of course the midterms, where our duly elected (supposedly) welfare queens decide to grandstand, especially on the Second Amendment, because the swine fear an armed citizenry. A person with a well-maintained modern rifle is a citizen, and not a subject.

Of course, where there’s freedom, there’s the risk of evil, and the risk that those who oppose freedom will use the deeds of evil people to further their own insidious agendas…

The Biden Regime And Ghost Guns

A Polymer80 G19-style 80 percent frame. This is not a firearm.

This past Monday, April 11th, the regime of Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr, dropped the final executive order concerning firearm receivers and expanded the definition of the term “firearm” in terms of US law to restrict so-called ghost guns.

Stymied by a rickety-thin majority in Congress and flagging poll numbers due to record-high inflation, supply chain shortages, and internal issues, the regime needed a “win”, even if it only really appeased the base. It’s the midterms after all. And what better target for the progressive wing of the regime than the Second Amendment? Long opposed to individual rights, especially the right to keep and bear arms, the regime once again twisted the definition of things to fit an agenda.

Was it a (hopefully temporary) loss for us Second Amendment Radicals? Yes, but of course the devil is in the details…

How Far Can You Shoot With A Red Dot Equipped Rifle?

An AR15 with an Aimpoint PRO red dot sight.

This article is part of a continuing partnership with Primary Arms, enjoy!

Here, we’re going to give our best thinking on how far you can stretch out a red dot sight. We think that, depending on the sight, it’s entirely possible to extend the range of these close-quarters oriented optics out to several hundred yards, if you’re willing to temper your expectations on what you consider accuracy just a little bit.

How To Fight Magazine Capacity Bans

30 round standard-capacity magazines for the AR Platform. Flood Washington State with these.

This past week, despite the best efforts of an extremely well-motivated pro-2A contingent in Washington State, the legislature rammed through SB 5078, magazine capacity ban, which should reach regime stooge Jay Inslee’s desk any day now. Inslee has stated that he’ll sign it, so unfortunately in a legal sense, it will be codified into law.

So, after July 1st, firearm magazines that hold ten rounds or more will be prohibited for sale in the Evergreen State. That being said, the Washington State (and other) magazine capacity bans can be fought…
