Larry Vickers: Slow Mo Heavy Weapons

By now I'm sure you are all pretty familiar with Larry Vickers.  He often gets his hands on some very cool toys and films some great video.  His latest collection of heavy explosions and epic slow mo, might be one of his best yet.

Did you see that shockwave kick up all the dirt on the ground? Friggin amazing.

30lbs of Tannerite Killed a '79 Ford Bronco

Every time you kill a Bronco, OJ sheds a single tear in sadness.  I'm not 100% sure that is true, but I do know that Tannerite is a powerful binary explosive that can do some serious damage.  A couple of Southern fellas mixed up 30 lbs of Tannerite and shoved into a 1979 Bronco.  Want to guess what happens next?  Unless you want to hear two guys talking with the car door open and beeping, I'd suggest you fast forward to about 2:15:

Wow, it only 30 lbs of Tannerite to destroy that Bronco...  I would have thought a lot more would have been needed, but I guess placement inside the cab was enough to some serious damage.  I'm amazed that the explosion tore the frame and the whole top of the car has been turned to shrapnel rained down on the surrounding hills.  I'm sure you already know this, but please don't try this at home.

The Language Of Fear Applied To Firearms

The media learned long ago that fear sells (I talk quite a bit about this in my book, which you can pick up here), and thus any firearms related stories are almost always met with fear.  Check out Billy Johnson's video on how we can do our part to dispell the fear based conversation about guns.

I like the cut of this guy's jib, and I think this video is great.  What do you guys think?

Supreme Court To Hear Firearms Case

The supreme court has been pretty shy about gun cases since the Heller Decision.  They have the right to turn away cases, and thus haven't really wanted much to do with anything related to guns.  The Supreme Court will be hearing a case in regards to felons and the firearms they owned prior to their conviction. 

As it stands now, felons forgo quite a few rights including the ability to own firearms.  A Border Patrol Agent got into some hot water back in 2007 for some drug charges turned in his weapons to the FBI as he was no longer allowed to own them as a convicted felon.  Check out this news clip via Reuters:

Upon his arrest, Henderson voluntarily gave the FBI his 19 firearms. As federal felons cannot possess firearms, Henderson later sought either to sell the guns to an interested buyer or to transfer ownership to his wife.

A federal judge refused his request, as did the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in a ruling this past January.

The legal question is whether the federal prohibition on felons possessing firearms terminates all ownership rights. Lower courts are divided on the issue.

In this case the Supreme Court will decide what happens in similar situations in the future.  Don't hold your breath on this because the wheels of government turn very slowly.  A decision probably won't be made until summer of next year, but I'm sure this case doesn't apply to most of you anyway. 

I'm all about guns being matched with the right owners and if guns that were owned by felons can be given a new life with a law abiding, tax paying, new owner, I say we go for it.  What do you guys think?

ISIS Bullets vs. Bullet Proof Windshield

Well it looks like Ebola is the latest thing to populate the fear brought on by the media and ISIS will have to take a back seat until the news gets slow again.  Like most videos of this nature, details are sparse and I don't speak the language.  What I do know is that this bullet proof windshield saved a few lives form an ISIS sniper...

Yikes...  Those folks are lucky they made it out alive.  Looks like that bullet proof resistant glass works!
