Do You Really Want a Smart Gun?

Although on the surface the idea of a smart gun that can only be used by its owner seems attractive, in fact it is an idea that could prove deadly for many who buy into it. This article shows how criminals, terrorists, or others could take advantage of smart guns to disarm those owning them. It also reveals why smart gun legislation could be gun control laws in disguise.


Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition

If you're a pacifist, you'd best skip this article. If you're unsure about whether or not you have a moral right, or even a duty to defend yourself, then this article may be of help to you.  


The Right Stuff

Don't confuse this one with the movie -- they're not about the same subject. No space stuff here; all down to earth. By a long shot, so to speak.

AK47 Rifle

One version or another of this rifle has been adopted the militaries of about half the world. This rifle has also generally been found in the hands of terrorists overseas.

AR-15 and US Military M16 Rifles

The AR-15 and M16 rifles have become the popular military rifles in the West. Because of the innate accuracy of this gun, it's also popular with target shooters and those who value quality engineering.
