[Ed: And now for something not completely different. Going armed is fundamentally simply being prepared for dangerous emergencies; so is being equipped to fight fires. I've put out a couple of auto fires, and our author has stopped three or four. This is a more common hazard than most think, and deserves attention by all guardians and sheepdogs. Pictured is a McLaren -- man, that hurts!]
Disclaimer: I am not an auto mechanic, but ha...
[Ed: DRGO friend Dean Weingarten is one of the premier reporters of important, original Second Amendment news. This piece, first published at Ammoland March 12, presents a much deeper analysis of today's underlying currents. Different (and longer than usual) for DRGO, Ammoland and Weingarten, but well worth reading. Modestly edited for DRGO.]
To those who support the United States Constitution and the Second Amendment, many propositions put forward by the ruling clas...
1. Don’t stand out, but rather blend in. I can easily spot wolves, but on the other hand I don’t want them to identify me as a sheep dog. While I have a long history of wearing pro-2A t-shirts and hats, I am beginning to rethink this. It is a fact that most of us are average looking; why stand out with some type of “loud” clothing?
2. Don’t overeact – assess first. This is a rule that you can practice every time you go into public.&nbs...
[Ed: Stephen D’Andrilli & Roger Katz are pro-2A Constitutionalist polemicists whom we enjoy reading. In this piece, first published February 6 at The Arbalest Quarrel, they raise important questions about the language and semantics of those who would cancel much of our freedom. Edited (and retitled) for space and clarity. Parts 1 & 2 were on Tuesday.]

[Ed: SCOPE-NY president Tom Reynolds just sent this plain language explanation of this RKBA-punitive bill via email to members. We felt it gives such a clear picture of the bill's aims that it is important to share it widely. The bill likely will pass the House next week, and the Senate could be where it might be diluted or even stopped. It is cocked & locked, and pointed at the heads of 100 million citizens. It will not be the last.]

Maybe you’ve seen long-range competitions on television, or you’ve seen a marine sniper with his long range scope. Whatever the reason you’re interested in long-range shooting, everyone has a different perspectives that bring new ideas to the table.
Full of useful information, in a package small enough to take with you on shooting outings, the Long Range Shooting Handbook: The Complete Beginner’s Guide to Precision Rifle Shooting accomplishes exactly what the title says....
Finally, a researcher whose work seems to support, rather the attack, Second Amendment rights. David Schwebel, a psychology professor, and his associates describe a training program to improve children’s ability to safely deal with guns. Perhaps surprising to those who read academic studies regarding firearms, they imply that children's exposure to firearms is not unusual and may have positive consequences, such as becoming integrated into family activities as well as spo...
