Andy Green and Fraser Smith mislead Maryland gun owners

I was expecting a pro-O’Malley slant from Andy Green and Fraser Smith in this morning’s “Inside Maryland Politics” opinion piece on gun control- after all, these are the two that tried to explain away and excuse the Governor’s spending of the highway trust fund just a few weeks ago. But take a listen for their … Continue reading

HuffPost too clueless to critique Dorner manifesto

Sadly, HuffPost’er Allan McDonell can’t even see the obvious in his attempted critique of a small portion of former Navy/former LAPD murderer’s rant. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/08/christopher-dorner-murder_n_2646954.html Where to begin… suppressors fall under Title II, not Class III.

Maryland First Amendment Rights Assured

Good news! If Maryland SB 281 http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/2013RS/bills/sb/sb0281F.pdf passes in its current form, legitimate printing press owners (large, hand operated, hand rolled ink) can keep their presses and printed products without prejudice (in their homes and clubs only, of course).

PanaVise mounting

The Vise Yesterday I received an early Christmas present to myself, a PanaVise 396 Wide Opening Head. (The word wide here seems to be defined by PanaVise Products, Inc. as 6.5″ with rubber boots installed).
