This is one of those 2.5 million defensive gun uses the CDC couldn't be bothered to release to the public

(Via The Woodpile Report)

It's also an answer to the questions "Why I need an AR-15", "Why I need standard capacity magazines" and "Why I carry a gun at home."

It was 7 against 3 at 4 AM in Glen St. Mary, FL when the seven kicked in the door, claiming to be from the sheriff's department. Two of the three gunned up and unleashed an answer of high speed lead "No, we don't think you are" on the intruders. One intruder DRT (Dead Right There), one wounded and hospitalized, one treated and released to the cops and the rest are being sought.

The mouthy children from Parkland have yet to be heard from on the subject.

Interesting firearms manufacturing news

SCCY Firearms is moving from Florida to Tennessee.

Obviously, something like this takes a lot of time and planning, and therefore isn't a reaction to last month's foolishness revolving around the Parkland, FL school shooting--although I wouldn't be surprised if the alleged Republican governor's actions didn't add an exclamation point to it. Instead, I would suspect this is nothing more than the creeping Yankification of Florida that has been going on for the last couple of decades. While the northern retirees weren't so bad, the new waves of younger immigrants are bringing their liberal viewpoints with them, and the word from sources in Florida is that times are a changin' in the state that gave us shall issue concealed carry.

Pity, since there is a lot to like about Florida once you get outside the cities.

You really want to zero your rifle?

Then you do it this way. No shortcuts.

Of course this CDC study on defensive gun use never saw the light of day

It's really quite simple. The CDC buried a study that showed that guns are used defensively nearly 2.5 million times a year because it doesn't fit the narrative. It simply wouldn't do to have that sort of information out running around when we're trying to demonize gun owners and legislate he right to own guns out of existence.

And scientists wonder why the public doesn't trust them.
