Fox News Lies About 80% Complete Lowers

You may look far and wide for fair and balanced news, but you won't find it.  I know many of you watch Fox News and truthfully it isn't all that bad.  In LA we have a different version of Fox News which is way more liberal and tends to tell a different story that you'd find in other parts of the country.  There was recently a story about 80% complete firearms that seemed to fill in some gaps with half truths and lies.  Check out the video below.  It is a bit of a longer report, but definitely worth your time.

Los Angeles News | FOX 11 LA KTTV

The ATF said those 80% complete turned 100% ARs were fully automatic?  Wow those thugs must be really good at machining...  I'm willing to go out on a limb and say they probably weren't full autos and were only semi autos.  Also what was up with that dude in the Hawaiian shirt?  AR15s are like an explosion going off in your body?  Gang members would use less lethal weapons when they couldn't get AR15s?   What exactly is this based on?

Yes 80% complete lowers can fall into the hands of bad people just like knives, baseball bats, cars, booze and numerous other objects that have the potential for harm.  Fox sure seemed to stretch the truth on this one and throw in a few lies for good measure.  Lastly, they only blurred out the stomach of that cholo and not his face... Did anyone else think that was weird?

Potato Gun Fail Compilation

Ah potato guns...  There is no greater way to burn $25 in PVC pipes, hair spray, and a sack of taters.  The problem is that it is really dangerous and that it is most likely illegal.  Ever wonder what could go wrong with a potato gun?  Check out the vid below:

New Gun Documentary: No Control

Man, I love a good documentary.  You have to be careful when you watch them because they are typically pretty good and crafting an opinion they want you to believe in an engaging manner.  I saw the trailer for this new documentary about guns, and it looks polarizing to say the least.  Check it out:

At first I thought No Control was a pro gun doc, but it looks like it is just examining the extremes of both sides.  Apparently the film has been in a few festivals, and they are also looking to raise funds on kickstarter

Lol, guns are a public health issue?  Will knives, car bumpers, and baseball bats also be considered public health issues too?  I think I'd like to see this doc, but I get the feeling that it won't be quite so fair and balanced.  What do you guys think?

AK47 vs. Mercedes

I get it... If you make products that stop bullets you'll have to prove your products work.  The only way to really do that, is to have an employee grab a firearm and put the boss in harm's way.  The video starts out a little slow and you can go ahead and fast forward to about 1:02 to see the action.

Wow the boss didn't even flinch!  Watching that glass fly off the windshield was kind of intense.  It also seemed like that employee wasn't too accurate at such a short distance.

Another Step Toward Shall Issue Concealed Carry Permits In CA

California had a big win today.  CCWs have been a sore subject here in CA, and I actually talk quite about this in my recent book California's Gun Problem.  The 9th Circuit Court denied Kamala Harris from her efforts in limiting the recent ruling for CCWs in the golden state.  She really didn't have a dog in this fight (legally speaking) but as a democrat she had to play her part and make this move for the liberals who voted for her.  This was always posturing from the start, but it also served to delay some counties from issuing concealed carry permits to law abiding residents since the Peruta case.

Everyone is waving a big flag of victory, but isn't over yet.  The wheels of justice turn slowly and if you live in one of the stubborn counties here in CA, don't expect your local sheriff to get a sudden change of heart.  All this court decision means is that things are moving in the right direction, but this could still take some time and potentially go to the Supreme Court. 

If you want to read the long boring court docs associated with this case, feel free to visit this site.  You can learn more by visiting the NRA site, and I'll keep you updated as this court case moves ahead.
