Kennedy Assassination Anniversary Edition

Speaking of tyrants and the demise thereof, Colorado state legislator who decided she knew more about her constituent's rights than they did is facing a recall petition drive. So helpfully, one of Evie Redak's supporters threatened to get a gun and "kill you motherf*ckers".

From the Defensive training Group, more discussion on counterambush techniques.

From the Lucky Gunner, a discussion on brass versus steel casings from the .223 NATO rifle.

And in honor of that tragic day on November 22, 1963, see the last item (Rantburg gun of the week)
