Montana Fires a Warning Shot over States’ Rights

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 29th April 2009

Helena, Mont. (AP) – Montana is trying to trigger a battle over gun control – and perhaps make a larger point about what many folks in this ruggedly independent state regard as a meddlesome federal government.

In a bill passed by the Legislature earlier this month, the state is asserting that guns manufactured in Montana and sold in Montana to people who intend to keep their weapons in Montana are exempt from federal gun registration, background check and dealer-licensing rules because no state lines are crossed.

That notion is all but certain to be tested in court.  Read more here.

So long, Pontiac, so long……..

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 24th April 2009

When I was young, Pontiac meant exciting automobiles, notably the Bonneville, the GTO, the Firebird. They were in demand. Not so much lately.


Any plans to return Pontiac to the heavy-horsepower days of the ’70s ended as gas prices rose and Congress prepared stricter fuel economy rules for the industry.

General Motors, struggling too stay afloat, will announce the end of the Pontiac brand.

Pontiac’s current role in GM seems mostly to be to support GMC and Buick by providing a brand under which Pontiac-Buick-GMC dealers could sell non-luxury cars, filling out what then becomes a full-line showroom.

An official announcement is expected Monday, April 26th, 2009.

firebird-formulaSeems lately, we’ve had to let go of many of the things we valued in our youth.

It’s a reminder to appreciate what we have while we have it.

So long, Pontiac, so long.

Britain now has “thought police.” Are we next?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 23rd April 2009

The British government is about to criminalize politically incorrect jokes. Children have been taken to the police for innocent remarks seen as “racist.”

The right of free speech is under a wet blanket in Britain unless you’re a member of some kind of underclass or minority.

The article below from “The Australian” highlights the harassment of a columnist who protested an anti-hunting rally by saying, “If you are a black vegetarian Muslim asylum-seeking one-legged lesbian lorry driver, I want the same rights as you.”  Serious charges were pending for 4 months and it took 5 years to clear his name.

What the hell is going on? Read this.

A Straight-talking S.F. Police Officers representative tells the media what’s so.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 21st April 2009

This is nearly a 3-year old story, but I’m posting it because I’m impressed with straight talk and this is a great example.

Gary Delagnes, head of the San Francisco Police Officers Association tells the media the truth about a good policeman and felon who caused his death during a high-speed chase. The link to the press conference is below. Don’t you wish we could count on straight talk from all sectors of our government?

Officer Nick Birco was killed July 26, 2006 when his patrol car was struck by a van carrying persons involved in an earlier robbery.

Thank God I had a Gun…

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 20th April 2009

ABC had a show last week with Diane Sawyer that minimized the value of having a gun when trouble comes through the door.

We’ll here are some real-life stories of people who were glad they add access to a gun.

The book is called, “Thank God I Had a Gun.”

The folks at U.S. Concealed Carry have posted the details on it here.

Meet Lance Thomas

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 17th April 2009

Lance Thomas owned a watch store in Santa Monica California. There were four attempted robberies by armed thugs over several years.

All the thugs are dead or in prison. Lance finally had to close his store after the last two tried to rob him. You see, he killed two gang bangers and the gang was out for revenge.

Here’s the story on video. Lance Thomas on YouTube

One point is clear. You must prepare for this kind of armed encounter.

As Jeff Cooper once said, “Owning a handgun does not make you any more armed than a guitar makes you a musician.”

Two-Day Front Sight handgun training course for $100 (usually $1000)

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 15th April 2009

I have no connection with Front Sight. I just know people who have spoken highly of the training available.

Front Sight is offering a limited time $100 Defensive Handgun Course at their facility if you pay for a certificate by April 20th. This must be your FIRST course with them.


Once you have the certificate you can use it any time in the future for the two-day Defensive Handgun Course. It’s a full two days from 7:30 in the morning to 5:30 both days.

Their email offer is too long to post here, and I’m not going to spam my email list with this offer.

I think this is a good deal. If you want more information, they don’t have a link to this offer – only an email I received.

If you want more information, email me at Rob@Tuckergunleather.com, put Front Sight Offer as the subject and I’ll forward the email to you.

If you want this, your check to Front Sight must be postmarked by April 20th, so don’t dawdle, dilly dally or otherwise procrastinate.

Tucker Gunleather – sharing the good stuff when we can.

The U.S. is not a democracy – and it should stay that way

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 15th April 2009

We’re not a democracy, we’re a republic. In times like these, the distinction is important. Here’s an informative and thought-provoking short column by Walter Williams that invites you to consider the difference. Which do you want? Democracy or republic. Check it out.

BTW, happy TAX DAY!
