From Matt's blog:

Well, the last couple of blogs have caused such a stir that I decided we'd talk about something less controversial this week: gun control.

Here's a video that someone sent me and I thought it was a pretty interesting find. I think this lady has a very powerful message here:

Pat Flanigan forwarded me this a few days ago and it's funny that the government can't quite regulate guns, so they're going to regulate ammunition:

Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009

Ammunition Accountability Legislation

Remember how Obama said that he wasn't going to take your guns? Well, it seems that his allies in the anti-gun world have no problem with taking your ammo!

The bill that is being pushed in 18 states (including Illinois and Indiana) requires all ammunition to be encoded by the manufacturer in a data base of all ammunition sales. So they will know how much you buy and what calibers. Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009 unless the ammunition is coded.

Any privately held uncoded ammunition must be destroyed by July 1, 2011 (Including hand loaded ammo). They will also charge a 5 cent tax on every round so every box of ammo you buy will go up at least $2.50 or more!

If they can deprive you of ammo they do not need to take your gun!

This legislation is currently pending in 18 states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington.

Send to your friends in these states AND fight to dissolve this BILL!!

To find more about the anti-gun group that is sponsoring this legislation and the specific legislation for each state, go to:
I also received this in an email quite a while ago and just couldn't find a way to squeeze it into a blog until now. It's an article that was published in the Washington Post in September of last year. For those of you who don't agree with hunting, you really need to read this:

Hunter Green
The People Behind a Conservation Success Story
By Steve Sanetti

Today's green movement uses certain buzzwords -- organic, locavore, renewable -- to the wry amusement of 15 million to 20 million of us who've actually lived the eco-friendly lifestyle that these words describe.

We are hunters... (To read the rest of this article click here)
Here's a couple of products I've received that I wanted to spotlight here:

First, C-Products LLC. has come out with a good magazine for the AR platform. In the picture, you'll note that the magazine on the left is from an AK-47 and performs flawlessly. The magazine on the right is a standard AR magazine. The one in the middle is the C-Products magazine. As you can see it more closely resembles the AK-47 magazine and also performs flawlessly. The old AR magazines have problems not feeding correctly. AK-47 mags (7.62x39) are easy to find and I've told DPMS that we need to come out with a gun that will use AK-47 magazines.

The boys at FOXPRO sent me a little gadget to call in some coyotes. This has the most realistic sounds on it that I've ever heard. I've only had a chance to go out and use this thing twice, but I've called in everything from raccoons to coyotes to hawks. Like I said before, this has the most realistic sounds I've heard in a caller and the remote control means I can put it 30 yards upwind and control it, so the coyotes can't get downwind of me.

Friday night the 27th and Saturday the 28th I will be in Bloomington for the Illinois Deer Classic. I will be sitting with Pat and Nicole from DrivenTV. If you don't have anything going on, then I hope to see you there. -matt
