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…

Choosing From The Best Of The New Long Range Cartridges For The AR

AR variants like the Mk12 push the 5.56mm cartridge to the limit - but there's a whole world beyond 5.56mm for the AR.

Article By: Primary Arms Staff

The AR-15 has always been known as a relatively reliable and accurate rifle platform. It’s got a long and storied history, and deep in the roots of the .223 Remington you can find buried there, the lineage of benchrest pioneers.

What the AR has not been known for generally, at least not until fairly recently is for consistent long-range accuracy. It’s simply not that gun. That is, unless you harness the power of a new breed of AR cartridges that are built specifically to add that element to the AR resume, and for which it may just be an upper receiver swap away for you to begin enjoying such benefits….
