America’s love affair with guns is only getting stronger. New federal data shows that there are 422.9 million firearms in circulation or about 1.2 guns for every person in the country. What’s more, despite years of criticism of modern “assault-style” rifles such as the AR-15 and AK-47, there are a record 17.7 million in private hands, proving that it is the most popular gun around. And last year alone, the arms industry produced 8.1 billion rounds of ammunition. The figures are from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and were crunched by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the gun industry trade group.

If the ammunition prices were more reasonable there would be even more. Even the price of very old military surplus from around the world has skyrocketed. In the late 90's I bought a case of Turkish 8mm Mauser for just a few cents a shot. Now most of the surplus is 50 cents a shot or more. The Russian steel cased non-reloadable in the common calibers is climbing. It still beats the Obama years, when you couldn't find any at all.

It's a good start. Buy reloading equipment and supplies as well. Stock up on ammo while it is still available or taxed out of reach but be prepared to roll your own. ORGANIZE.

I live in flyover country, in a state that is gun-friendly. None of my fellow gun club members, as with myself, know how many guns we own. Respect is determined by how many gun safes the person has.

I have a friend who bought a LOT of 7.62 NATO ammo, like a lot of cases, back when it was about 15 cents a round delivered for surplus ammo. I know other folks who have tens of thousands of rounds of various types of ammo, a lot of it .22 Long Rifle. But a well used .22 LR can be pretty effective out to 100yds or more. The leftists hoping to trigger a civil war have no concept of how things will go. Let's hope that we manage to turn things around without resorting to that.

One hour before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced that she was calling for articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, the president on Thursday dared House Democrats to impeach him “fast” so there can be a “fair trial in the Senate” and the country can get back to business. Trump criticized Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing, saying the “Do Nothing Democrats had a historically bad day.” “They have no Impeachment case and are demeaning our Country.

A new book about Jeffrey Epstein's crimes makes the far-fetched claim that he and Ghislaine Maxwell were in fact spies working for Israel's Mossad and that they lured prominent Western politicians and businessmen into sleeping with underage girls in order to blackmail them. The claim is made in Epstein: Dead Men Tell No Tales, a new book by American Media Inc's Dylan Howard, Melissa Cronin and several other reporters who claim to have worked for eight years to unravel 'an international conspiracy the likes of which we have never seen before.’ The theory relies on the belief that Robert Maxwell, Ghislaine’s father

Joe Biden exploded at a retired Iowa man who accused him of sending his son Hunter to join a Ukrainian energy firm and being too old to run for president Thursday.The former vice president branded the former farmer him a 'liar' and then challenged his accuser to a push-up contest, and finished by saying: 'You're too old to vote for me.' The confrontation came on a day when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, 79, said she had directed committee chairs to draw up articles of impeachment against Donald Trump, 73, then exploded in rage when she was asked if she 'hates' him.

President Donald Trump’s approval rating hit 52% on Thursday. Despite 96% negative headlines from the fake news mainstream media, and continued sham impeachment hearings President Trump’s approval rating soared on Thursday. This makes it literally IMPOSSIBLE for Democrats to impeach. President Trump is keeping his promises. The economy is soaring and his foreign policy is exceptional.

More than a half-a-million people are set to be thrown off food stamps after the Trump administration on Wednesday approved a new requirement tightening the criteria to qualify for the public assistance program. The law would ask states to mandate certain work requirements for people seeking to qualify for the benefits in areas deemed in "economic distress." The rule would apply to only able-bodied adults without dependents. It is expected to cut the number of people who receive food stamps by more than 600,000 nationwide.

Tlaib headlined the American Muslims for Palestine's (AMP) 2020 election conference late last month in Chicago. The freshman lawmaker, known for her routine criticism of Israel and its supporters, shared the stage with a who's who of leading anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists, including Bernie Sanders surrogate Linda Sarsour.

That’s true.

Democrats are saying that Trump should be impeached because he solicited foreign interference in the 2020 election. That's essentially the core complaint in the hyper-partisan impeachment report coming out of Adam Schiff's witch hunt. By that criterion, Obama should have been impeached, because he specifically promised Putin that he, Obama, would go easy on Putin if Putin helped Obama get re-elected. While the fake news media have done all they can to make sure you never heard of Obama's quid pro quo with Putin, we know that it happened because of what Obama was heard to say to outgoing Russian president Medvedev, with the intent that

A little something to cleanse the palate. She said this in an interview today with Howard Stern, which makes it slightly less weird since chatter about lesbians is like 40 percent of the content on that show. Or at least it was when I was a regular listener a million years ago. (In fairness to Stern, she’s the one who brings it up.) He went easy on her by not asking the obvious follow-up: What were you doing at Epstein’s ranch, then? She should consider this a missed opportunity, as a surprise admission of bisexuality would have helped add a little more “diversity” to an upcoming Democratic debate.

This Friday, the top four NCAA Division III women’s soccer teams face off in the national semifinals. One of the final four teams’ goalkeepers, Isa Berardo, is a male transgender playing as a female for Pomona-Pitzer Colleges. Not surprisingly, the male goalie has dominated the field against opposing female players, giving his own a chance to win the national championship thanks to his physical advantages in a key position. This is increasingly happening throughout women’s sports, at all levels from elementary school through professional competitions. It’s creating not equality, but inequality.

Trump said the wall had been tested by “world-class mountain climbers,” and referenced “pictures of young people climbing walls with drugs on their back--a lot of drugs.”

California Sen. Kamala Harris should never have run for president in the first place. Her ambition far exceeded her ability. She hadn’t yet established herself in the U.S. Senate. And she hadn’t exactly excelled in her previous job as California’s attorney general. There wasn’t much of a record worth bragging about on the campaign trail. After being elected to the Senate in a 2016 cakewalk, she should have spent the next three years focused exclusively on representing Californians in Congress, helping the state on such vital issues as water development, environmental protection, healthcare and homelessness. But people around her — political advisors and her sister Maya Harris

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted in the 2012 fatal shooting of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin, is suing Martin's family and Florida prosecutors, claiming that they engineered false evidence in the homicide trial. The lawsuit to be filed Wednesday in Polk County Circuit Court seeks $100million in civil damages for defamation, abuse of civil process and conspiracy. It alleges that the prosecution's key witness in Zimmerman's 2013 murder trial, Rachel Jeantel, was an imposter coached by the family and their lawyers. The lead defendant in the suit is Sybrina Fulton, Martin's mother. Fulton gained national notoriety as an advocate for social justice
