    .350 Legend and Are Tasers Arms? | SOTG 1097

    .350 Legend and Are Tasers Arms? | SOTG 1097

    During our Brownells Bullet Points segment, we will consider Eastern rifles versus Western rifles? When it comes to the new .350 Legend cartridge where does it fit? What is the difference between east and west when it comes to rifles? 
    Also, we have an SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters. We continue with our topic of being dangerous on demand and self-defense. The Second Amendment Foundation through the Firearms Policy Coalition has filed suit against New York City for their electronic subject control or “Taser” ban. Is a handheld electronic self-defense tool protected under the 2nd Amendment as “arms”?  
    Where does the name “TASER” originate? Also, what did our friend Nicholas Orr have to say about the TASER and how they are portrayed by Hollywood?

    From www.ammoland.com/2021:
    With the financial backing of the Second Amendment Foundation the Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced its part in a new federal Second Amendment lawsuit challenging New York City’s ban on electronic arms, such as stun guns and tasers.
    The lawsuit seeks a judgment declaring the City’s ban unconstitutional, a preliminary or permanent injunction against enforcement of the law, and attorney’s fees and costs. Case documents in Calce v. New York City can be found at FPCLegal.org.
    “Stun guns and tasers are bearable arms, and further, they are in common use for the purpose of self-defense,” the complaint states. “Indeed, the Superintendent of the New York State Police stipulated in litigation that hundreds of thousands of tasers and millions of stun guns are owned by private citizens in the United States.”

    More than two dozen container ships appear to be stuck at sea miles off the south shore of Long Island, according to a maritime traffic monitoring website as more than 60 vessels wait to dock at two of the country’s largest ports on the West Coast.
    The logjam at the nation's three busiest ports comes as the economy reels from a supply chain crunch which as been exacerbated by a shortage of truck drivers. The situation has deteriorated to the point where supermarkets have been unable to stock their shelves with products while FedEx has had to reroute hundreds of thousands of packages.
    MarineTraffic, the global ship tracking site, shows cargo ships and oil tankers clustered just a few miles off of the coastline that stretches from Long Beach in the west to Lido Beach and Jones Beach Island in the east.

    Jen Psaki makes it a regular habit to say utterly ridiculous things in defense of the White House's laughably bad policies and proposals.
    This time, Psaki has said what might be the most ridiculous and clownish thing to come out of this White House yet.
    Jen Psaki is asked about a study on a new tax bill, and her response, that she completely volunteers on her own, is beyond laughable.

    Kyle Rittenhouse Witch Hunt Continues | SOTG 1095

    Despite demonstrable evidence of self-defense, corrupt political hacks masquerading as criminal prosecutors in Wisconsin are attempting to convict Kyle Rittenhouse of Murder. If Rittenhouse was a Capitol Police Officer or a Muslim cop in Minneapolis, the would have patted him on the back and sent him on his way.
    During our Brownells Bullet Points segment, Paul will once more address the question; “What do you think about the Mossberg Shockwave? Listen louder.
    Also, we have an SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters. A brand new IWB holster for concealed carry has been released.  We’ll give you all of the details.

    From www.ammoland.com:
    N8 Tactical, an innovative holster company with a mission to provide quality products with superior comfort for all day, everyday carry, is pleased to announce availability of the all-new Xecutive IWB holster.
    The N8 Tactical design team developed the Xecutive holster to meet the increasingly sophisticated demands of serious EDC practitioners and the firearm configurations they deploy for personal defense. Given the increased use of micro red dot sighting systems with co-witness or suppressor-height open sights as well as the need for multiple options depending on changing apparel needs and carry scenarios, user-customization and maximum compatibility were key design goals of the Xecutive holster.
    Built around a firearm-specific, single-piece Kydex molded pocket, the Xecutive holster features an optic-compatible cut and generously proportioned sight channel along the spine to accommodate most red dot optics and elevated front open sights to ensure smooth drawing and reholstering. The Xecutive can also be used for handguns without optics and those sporting standard-height open sights, making the holster “scalable” for custom firearm configurations.

    Rhodesian Camo and Smith & Wesson Big Move | SOTG 1094

    Smith & Wesson Brands Incorporated of Springfield, Massachusetts, will very soon no longer be “of Massachusetts”. The gun maker has been in Springfield since 1852. However, their corporate headquarters will be relocating this year and taking 750 jobs with them.
    During our Duracoat Finished Firearm of the Week segment, Professor Paul discusses the history of the Rhodesian “baby poop” camouflage pattern. He had a gun to show off and advice as to how you can do your own Rhodie camo job with Duracoat.
    We are being censored and suppressed by big tech on socialist media. What can we do to fight back? Paul and Zach will discuss the Alternative Mass Media Convention and why it is such an important event.

    Gun maker Smith & Wesson Brands Inc. will relocate its headquarters to Tennessee next year due to proposed firearms legislation in its home state of Massachusetts.
    The legislation, if enacted, would prevent Smith & Wesson from manufacturing products that accounted for more than 60% of its revenue last year.
    "These bills would prevent Smith & Wesson from manufacturing firearms that are legal in almost every state in America and that are safely used by tens of millions of law-abiding citizens every day exercising their Constitutional 2nd Amendment rights," Smith & Wesson CEO Mark Smith said in a statement.

    Headline Manipulation: Man Stabs Another for “Bugging” Him | SOTG 1093

    Headline Manipulation: Man Stabs Another for “Bugging” Him | SOTG 1093

    The title of the story says that a man stabbed another man for “bugging” him as he walked home. A recent example of Headline Manipulation, as when you read the report, the incident was about more than just “bugging”. What lessons can we take away from this situation during our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters?
    During the preamble of the show, Paul and Jarrad and the live audience consider the Federal government’s history of overreach. When did it begin? What safeguards were put in place to protect the individual from the whims of the mob?
    Also, we have a Brownells Bullet Points for you as always. The air is getting cold. Soon the day will get shorter. What winter projects are you preparing? How will you spend your indoor time this season?

    From www.star-telegram.com:
    Christopher Phillips was walking home in the early morning hours of Sept. 9 in west Fort Worth, listening to videos through his headphones when a man attempted to stop him, he told police.
    The man made comments such as, “Isn’t it beautiful, why are you alive, why am I alive,” and ”You ain’t so cool, I ain’t so cool, why can’t we all just be cool?”
    The 41-year-old Phillips thought the man was intoxicated and yelled for him to leave him alone, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
    After Phillips repeatedly yelled at the man to stay away from him, the man walked up to Phillips, their “stomachs touched,” and Phillips stabbed the man, he told police, according to the warrant obtained on Tuesday by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
    Phillips then called 911 and waited for Fort Worth police to arrive. Authorities found the wounded man, who was later identified as Jasen Robert Crenshaw, 37, of Fort Worth. Crenshaw was taken to a local hospital, where he later died.

    Bob Gibbs Files Article of Impeachment Against Biden | SOTG 1092

    Bob Gibbs Files Article of Impeachment Against Biden | SOTG 1092

    Citing three specific crimes, Ohio Rep. Bob Gibbs filed Articles of Impeachment against the illegitimate occupant of the White House, Sniffy Joe. Rather than cower like Mitch McConnell, Gibbs and numerous other cosigners stepped up and did the right thing.
    Also, the legacy or mainstream media treatment of the above story has demonstrated once more their blatant hypocrisy and one-sided news reporting. One has to only look back a year or two to view the difference in reporting from then to now.
    Professor Paul considers what to do with the leftover Duracoat you have after you have completed your project. Do you remember the ‘sexy can’ contest? Zach takes us back with a slide show.

    House Republicans, led by Rep. Bob Gibbs, R-Ohio, have filed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden, citing the border crisis, chaotic and deadly Afghanistan withdrawal, and attempted to break constitutional law on extending the eviction ban.
    Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., Brian Babin, R-Texas, and Randy Weber, R-Texas, signed on to the three-pronged complaint — even if the Democrat-controlled House under Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., are sure to ignore it, Gibbs told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday.
    And despite Democrats holding only a slim majorities in the House and the Senate, Vice President Kamala Harris can cast a tie-breaking vote in the Senate.
