All Gun Control laws are built upon lies. We will demonstrate and offer proof of the lies that are being told to justify the disarming of the American people. And no, a pistol brace is NOT a bump stock.

During our Brownells Bullet Points we will consider the modern incarnation of the Armalite 180 and look at a couple of new products. For our Duracoat Finished Firearm segment we discuss color contrast between the gun and the sights. 

Also, for our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters we address the dangerous and potentially lethal mistake of substituting a less than lethal tool for a firearm when it comes to self-defense.  

Thanks for being a part of SOTG! We hope you find value in the message we share. If you’ve got any questions, here are some options to contact us:

At this point, Congressman Cicilline objected and pointed out the scary and dangerous details of a stabilizing brace. Only it didn’t go quite how he planned.

The amendment from Mrs. Fischbach, as read at the desk, states:

“This act should not be interpreted to provide additional limitations on the import, sale, manufacture, transport, possession of a pistol with a stabilizing brace.”

Biden made the remarks while speaking to reporters outside the White House, a day after he and first lady Jill Biden visited Uvalde, Texas, and comforted families grieving the 19 children and two teachers who were killed in a mass shooting at an elementary school last week.
