Americans’ Number One Fear: Walking Alone at Night. Unarmed?

“A new survey from Chapman University finds that the most common American fear is … walking alone at night, followed by becoming the victim of identity theft, safety on the Internet, being the victim of a mass shooting, and public speaking,” reason.com’s Elizabeth Nolan Brown writes. “I have never been so ashamed to be an American.” Huh? I’m NEVER ashamed to be an American, not even in jest. Anyway, notice that two of the three “worst fears” can be ameliorated by carrying a self-defense firearm (void where prohibited by law).

Quote of the Day: Matthew McConaughey on Redskins and Gun Control

“What interests me is how quickly it got pushed into the social consciousness. We were all fine with it since the 1930s, and all of a sudden we go, ‘No, gotta change it’?

Great White Albino Shotgun Seen Out In the Wild

Last year we reported that Mossberg will be selling their shotguns in Kyptek Camo. I finally saw one in the wild, so to speak. My local gun shop got at Mossberg 930 in Krytpek Yeti. It stands out amongst the other shotguns.
