Violent Crime Stats: Not What You Think

Posted by Rob Longenecker on January 15th, 2013

In the midst of all the debate about violent crime and firearms, we don’t hear of the true statistics from politicians. Piers Morgan compares us to Britain with made-up facts.

Here’s a short and interesting video that puts a new perspective on the discussion.

Our Incredibly Stupid Gun Laws

Posted by Rob Longenecker on December 28th, 2012

David Gregory intended to demonstrate on “Meet The Press” what he regards as the absurdity of America’s lax gun laws. Instead, he’s demonstrating the ever-greater absurdity of America’s non-lax laws.

On air from his Washington, DC studio, he held up a 30-round magazine for an AR-15 while interviewing Wayne LaPierre of the NRA.  The magazine is illegal in DC. David knew it – he even checked ahead of time with the DC PD.

Article Tab: This video frame-grab image provided byMeet the Press shows host David Gregory holding what he described as a high-capacity ammunition magazine during the Dec. 23 program. Washington police said they were investigating the incident.

He figured, “but I’m not going to do any harm with it, so ….”  Well, the law applies regardless of intent.  I highly recommend Mark Steyn’s account of this event and the far reaching impact.

I think you’ll want to pass this on to your friends.

SENATE TO GO FOR GUNS

Posted by Rob Longenecker on December 27th, 2012

Diane Feinstein and fellow travelers n the Senate are about to submit new legislation that:

  • Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:
    • 120 specifically-named firearms
    • Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic
    • Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds
  • Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:
    • Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test
    • Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test
    • Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans
  • Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.
  • Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:
    • Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment
    • Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes and
    • Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons
  • Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:
    • Background check of owner and any transferee;
    • Type and serial number of the firearm;
    • Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
    • Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
    • Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration.

    As Bush 41 used to say, “Nah gonna happen!” You can expect aspects of this bill to pass the Senate, but not the House of Representatives.

If you’re a shooter, I’ll bet you love cowboys.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on September 24th, 2012

If you’re a shooter, I’ll bet you love cowboys, especially the old-timey movie and TV cowboys like Roy, Gene and Hoppy.

Some of you might have been totin’ a pair of cap-shootin’ six-guns and wearing a big-brimmed hat when you were a youngster. I sure did.

Hopalong Cassidy

Hopalong Cassidy

Hoppy was my favorite (yes I’m approaching official geezer age), but no matter who was your favorite, I’ll bet you’ll enjoy a visit to a great website that pays homage to these heroes of yesteryear.
It’s called “The Old Corral.”

I invite you to take a short walk to the corral and enjoy a treasure trove of Cowboy nostalgia. Then, let me know how you like it.

Why Does Homeland Security Need 1.4 Million Round of Ammunition

Posted by Rob Longenecker on September 22nd, 2012

In 2008, President Obama said, “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

The Department of Homeland Security has purchased 1.4 Million round of ammunition in the last six month. Questions about it go unanswered.  It has my attention. Yours, too?

Man, we have been busy at Tucker Gunleather! Sorry for no recent posts

Posted by Rob Longenecker on May 19th, 2010

For years, it’s been Tucker at the workbench and me at on the phones. We took in a lot of orders and built quite a backlog.

While a backlog sounds like business insurance, and very few people have canceled orders, people want their holsters sooner rather than later. We want to ship as fast as possible, too.

Recently, we’ve hired help for Tucker and it’s paying off. We’ve cleared out a lot of backlog with the help Tucker has with preparation in the shop, but there’s a lot more to go.

Silent Thunders, Answers and Secret IWB’s are going out in 3-4 weeks. Texas Heritage, Cover Up, Cover Up Plus IWB’s have been backed up but we’re clearing them now so the lead time should shrink to less that two months.

HF1′s, Belts and mag pouches (particularly in sets) whether stamped or unstamped, take longer to make (both labor and dry time). This is where the challenge is because Tucker has to be involved in so many of the steps to completion on these rigs. Having help in the shop with prep work is making a difference.

Stamped rigs are still close to a year’s wait.

Stay tuned for better news soon.

Silent Thunder UPDATES

Posted by Rob Longenecker on January 29th, 2010

OK, I know; it’s been a while since I posted. The main reason is the tremendous number of orders we’re taking for the Silent Thunder line of holsters.

The Silent Thunder IWB continues to rock. People seem to love it – buy one and come back for all their carry guns.

Silent Thunder IWB for 1911

Silent Thunder IWB for 1911

The Silent Thunder Champion for IDPA is growing because people at matches talk about it and their friends want one, too.

Silent Thunder Champion for 5 1911

Silent Thunder Champion for 5" 1911

The Silent Thunder STX super-concealment belt holster has really taken off. If you want to carry on the belt and really conceal your pistol, the STX will do it.

It really tucks the butt of the gun in so it’s much easier to conceal.

What can we build for you?

Limiting beliefs
+++++++++++++++++++

Have you become addicted to limiting beliefs? Do those limiting beliefs soothe you and comfort you while at the same time holding you back?

In the short term, it can be much easier to tell yourself you can’t do it. Yet when you look at the big picture, it’s much better to go ahead and do the work of achievement.

You can comfort yourself today by believing that your lack of progress is not your responsibility. However, you’ll soon be paying for that short-term comfort with long-term regret.

It is difficult work to acknowledge and follow the best of your possibilities. And it is well worth the effort.

For your dreams are calling to you, and they’ll never be satisfied until you do something about them. You have what it takes to reach them, and they know it.

Break free of your dependence on limiting beliefs. And achieve the great things that only you can bring to life.

Ralph Marston

What are they teaching your kids/grandkids?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on December 16th, 2009

This hit me hard. The progressive left is sure smacking the kids early with propaganda making the U.S. out to be a bad place.

Hollywood celebrities and education gurus have teamed together to distribute to schools across the country a dramatic new curriculum that casts American history

as an epic march of victims seeking to shrug off the shackles of the warmongering, racist, capitalist, imperialist United States.

Details here.

It’s all about what an awful place this is.  Howard Zinn, source of the Zinn Education Project, which is in schools in every state, says,

“We’re dreamers. We want it all. We want a peaceful world. We want an egalitarian world. We dont’ want war. We don’t want capitalism. We want a decent society.”

His vision of a decent society is not what I want for my country – or my grandchildren. Why?

When you socially engineer society, you increase the power of government and limit personal freedoms.

The real down side is someone gets to impose their view of utopia on you through government – whether you want it or not.
