RFID Removal: For those still concerned you can simply remove the grip and remove the hot glued RFID from the frame in the grip area when (over a year from now) these begin to appear. Others may prefer to wrap the revolver and their head in aluminum foil, curl in a ball and watch reruns of Mel Gibson's 1997 film, Conspiracy Theory. Well, that's a plan too!So, rather than listen to your customers, you'd rather openly insult them? Oops. It's a shame, because I still think the little Rhinos are an interesting concept.
The FBI says bomb-making materials were found in the motel room of an AWOL Fort Campbell, Ky., soldier arrested near Fort Hood Wednesday.This is a full out case of WTF though... 21 year old PFC joined just a few years ago (well after OEF/OIF started,) AKO says he's an 11 series MOS (Infantry,) yet he claims to have had "Muslim religious beliefs [that] would prevent him from fighting in any war" since he was 17. Apparently he made news earlier in the year when he claimed conscientious objector status to avoid a deployment to Afghanistan.
Agency spokesman Erik Vasys said Thursday that firearms and "items that could be identified as bomb-making components, including gunpowder" were removed from 21-year-old Pfc. Nasser Abdo's Killeen motel room.
"Initially, what kind of drew our attention to him as a patron was he showed up in a taxicab," Greg Ebert said. "That's kind of out of the norm."Thankfully the shop called the local PD, so they actually arrested him rather than "continued to build a case." Seems the Army would like to talk to him about some Child Porn charges on top of the AWOL status...
Ebert grew more suspicious as the man made his way around the store. He bought three boxes of shotgun shells, a magazine for a semi-automatic pistol and 6 pounds of smokeless gun powder, paying about $250.
"What raised the first real red flag was when he stands here and asks the manager, 'What is smokeless powder?'” Ebert said. "Well, if you don't know what it is, why would you buy six pounds of it?"
The AWD system makes the motorcycle noticeably easier to ride and substantially reduces rider fatigue, allowing you to ride faster for longer periods of time. The AWD system can be turned on and off with a simple flip of the engagement switch. The mechanical Christini AWD system provides distinct advantages without compromising the performance of the motorcycle. Power that would otherwise be lost due to wheel spin is transferred immediately to the front wheel. The system adds just 15 lbs additional weight and has a power loss of less than 1/10th hp.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that we as bloggers should now sit around and pat ourselves on the backs either. Because the problem is now that we’ve established that online media generators are the future, how do we forge that path forward into credibility? I’m not talking just about the gun blogosphere either, but rather the entire world of online media/journalism. Are bloggers the new investigative journalists? And a better question, or at least one that interests me is how do we collective put CNN out of its misery? I’ve got lots of questions, but not a lot of answers.To be honest, I don't have any more answers than Caleb. At this point really it's just "keep it up." Bloggers keep blogging, readers keep reading. Tell your friends to check out your favorite blogs, and support those bloggers that write them.
Right-to-Carry a Reality in Wisconsin!
Find out more at our upcoming briefing!
Attend a FREE Workshop to learn about the Wisconsin Right-to Carry legislation recently-signed by Governor Scott Walker. During this workshop you will also learn about how you can support the Senators who supported Right-to-Carry during the upcoming recall election.
DEAR WISCONSIN NRA MEMBER: WITH GOVERNOR WALKER’S SIGNING OF THE PERSONAL PROTECTION ACT ON FRIDAY JULY 8, RESIDENTS OF THE BADGER STATE WILL FINALLY HAVE THE ABILITY TO DEFEND THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES BY CARRYING A CONCEALED FIREARM FOR SELF DEFENSE.
In advance of the new law taking effect, NRA-ILA headquarters staff is hosting a series of workshops to provide you with information on what you need to do to obtain your permit and what this new law allows you to do. NRA-ILA Campaign Field Representative Nate Nelson will also be in attendance to brief you on volunteer opportunities for the upcoming recall election.
We need your help to support the Senators who helped make Right-to-Carry a reality in Wisconsin!
We have won a major battle with the enactment of the Personal Protection Act but there is much more to accomplish in the fight for your firearms freedom. The future of other legislative priorities such as the Castle Doctrine is completely dependent on the outcome of this summer’s recall elections. You can help make the difference!
These workshops are absolutely free and beverages and light snacks will be provided. Each workshop will run about 60-90 minutes. Please make plans to attend one of our events and encourage your fellow NRA members and Second Amendment supporters to attend as well!
Please plan on attending one of these upcoming workshops! Here are the details:Fond Du Lac
To register for one of these free events, please visit the link under the location closest to you, or call the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-VOTE (8683). We look forward to seeing you! Yours in freedom, NRA Institute for Legislative Actionwww.nraila.orgI'm hoping they'll hold one in the Central Wisconsin Area (like Gander up by Wausau again...)
Greetings in Freedom.
On Friday July 8th, 2011 Governor Scott Walker signed a "shall-issue" concealed carry bill into law.
The majority of the provisions in the law take effect in Novermber. The Wisconsin Dept. of Justice will be administering the program.
The original SB93 was a constitutional carry bill. The senate committee passed a modified SB93 that had an optional permit for concealed carry within school zones. Unfortunately, that modified "constitutional carry" bill did not survive the full senate and it was amended to a "shall-issue" type system. Once the "shall-issue" legislation passed the senate it was clear that constitutional carry had no chance in the legislature this session and in a judicious consideration of our members time, we did not believe further action/legislative contact from our members was required or would have any effect on the final legislation so we did not send any action alerts during that time as we waited to see what the final bill included.
Under the new law you will continue to be able to open carry without a permit in the places you can now. You will also be able to open-carry in your vehicle provided you do not cross a school zone. You may continue to conceal carry in your home and business as you can now, but in other places you will effectively be required to get a permit in order to carry concealed. The permits cost $50 and are good for 5 years. The renewal is slated to cost $25. The Dept. of Justice is suppose to have application forms available on Sept. 1st. We will send further updates when they are.
There are a great deal of specifics to the law which I won't write a novel here to describe, but the following links provide you legislative analysis of the bill. I encourage members to read through these and if you have any questions, I encourage you to join our facebook group (from facebook search "Wisconsin Carry") and pose your questions there. Due to the volume of recipients this email goes to I will not be able to respond to individual questions in a timely manner.
In order to obtain a concealed carry permit you will need to have proof of training and pass a background check. There are a number of specifics with regard to the training, but in general here is what qualifies:
-The hunter education program established by the Department of Natural Resources or a substantially similar program that is established by another state, country or province and that is recognized by DNR.
-A firearms safety or training course that is conducted by a national or state organization that certifies firearms instructors.
-A firearms safety or training course that is conducted by a firearms instructor who is certified by a national or state organization that certifies firearms instructors or who is certified by the Department of Justice.
-Documentation that the individual participated in organized shooting competitions or completed military, law enforcement or security training that gave the individual experience with firearms that is substantially equivalent to a course or program described above.
-Documentation of completion of small arms training while serving in the U.S. armed forces.
Wisconsin Carry intends to develop a training course that will qualify for the requirements of the law that we will offer at no charge to members. We do not want anyone to be unable to exercise their right to carry in the manner of their choosing because they cannot afford or do not have access to training. Please keep in mind that Wisconsin Carry is a 100% volunteer non-profit corporation so the time it takes us to put together that class may not be as quick as some will desire.
Once you obtain the permit, you will be able to carry in the manner of your choosing (open or concealed) everywhere you can currently open carry IN ADDITION to within "school zones". Carry remains prohibited on school GROUNDS for everyone (permit or not).
If you are a Wisconsin resident, you will need to get the Wisconsin permit. Your non-resident permit from another state cannot be used as your permit. It is my understanding that it can be used as proof of training if it is from a state that required training to obtain their permit.
This information is just a basic overview of the shall-issue legislation that was signed into law. You should not rely on it as legal advice. As always, you should read, research and understand the law completely. The above links will allow you to do so.
I will be sending another email shortly to discuss the past year's successes and failure as well as the future goals and initiatives of Wisconsin Carry.
