We know the pro-Second Amendment politicians and candidates on the national scene. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Thomas Massie, and so forth. Candidates and serving politicians who aren’t afraid to pose with a loaded black rifle in their campaign literature. They’ve helped stymie the efforts of the opposition at the national level. However, the opposition knows that all politics is local, and has redoubled their efforts on the state and local level to pass gun control laws, regardless of their Constituionality. Fortunately, there’s determined pro-Second men and women running for office at those levels, determined candidates like South Carolina State Senate District 29 Candidate Ronald Page.

I Have No Respect For A Person Who Willingly Gives Up Their Rights

Colt LE6920 AR-15 with some modifications along the way. DL Hughley doesn't think we should have these.

Of course, the usual blue-check brigade members in the US decided to chime in and wonder why we “can’t do that in the US”, including notable has-been DL Hughley.

The Pros And Cons Of The .40 S&W Caliber

A Smith & Wesson M&P 40 Shield Pistol and Speer LE 180 grain Gold Dot Hollow Point .40 S&W ammo.

Ah, .40 Smith & Wesson, aka .40 S&W, aka .40 Short & Weak. Once regarded as the “just right” caliber of the pistol world, due to it’s mass acceptance and deployment by professional users here in the US, it’s gradually been relegated to “red-headed stepchild” status, especially with the advent of more potent 9mm loads over the past 25 years.

Out of the box it has some basic sights, probably from Magpul, sitting on the top rail. You’re perusing the interwebs and innumerable people, most with a host of knowledge beyond mine, have picked sides on the Red Dot Sight vs Iron Sights debate.

My take? Why not both? You got a lot of room on that top rail.
