Thursday Thoughts

Lever Actions for Self Defense

A fairly well written article. My personal preference for a pistol caliber lever gun is .44 Magnum because thanks to Cowboy Action Shooting lever guns in .357 Magnum carry a premium price.

Situational Awareness for Concealed Carry

I don’t know about you, but for me I’d rather not have to use the gun I’m carrying. Being situationally aware can help you avoid trouble, respond to it if necessary or escape it if need be.

Duncan v. Becerra

This will be a case to watch. If you haven’t heard a District Judge ruled California’s ban on standard capacity magazines unconstitutional. Inexplicably the 9th Circus let the injunction stand for a week before issuing a stay and halting what turned into a flood of thousands of standard capacity magazines into California. If this case makes it to the Supreme Court there’s a good chance this will end the silliness of restrictions on the number of rounds you can have in your defensive firearm.

Miguel over at Gun Free Zone has some highlights of what is a very well written opinion from the Judge in two parts. Highly suggested reading.

What to Do When You’re Overwhelmed by All the Terrible Events Going On In the World

This is a great article with some really great advice. Most importantly; “…for the love of all things cute and fluffy, avoid the comments section of any news piece you happen to read.” The irony the author asks readers to leave comments is not lost on me. However the comments on this site seem decent. I also spotted other links worth checking out.
