In my previous post ABC News – How to get a grenade launcher we talked about how the media always gets their facts wrong, and time and time again manages to blow everything way out of proportion.
A new development from a frequent commenter Josh:
Regardless of all that, one of the stories I ran across said it was a 37mm Cobray grenade launcher. Obviously, 37mm is a flare, not a grenade, and the Cobray website doesn’t indicate that what they manufacture is anything other than a flare launcher. Way to go ABC. I think they might appropriately be called the “Alarmist Broadcasting Company.”
Detectives later searched the room where Woodson had been staying at the Red Mill Inn in Branchburg. Forrest said they seized another Bushmaster .308-caliber semiautomatic rifle with a defaced serial number, a 37 mm Cobray grenade launcher, a second bulletproof vest, a Russian-made night vision scope, a police scanner, a map of a U.S. military installation and a map of an out-of-state civilian community, a Middle Eastern red and white colored traditional headdress and hundreds of rounds of .50-caliber and .308-caliber ammunition.
BIG difference ABC.. BIG difference. One is a Destructive Device (40mm) and one is not (37mm).
There is no such thing as “grenades” for the 37mm.
Now I don’t look at FOX as being an authority on gun related news either, but I believe that a lot more than the crap ABC tried to tell us in that newscast.
FOX likely did mess up on this, if it was presumably an AR-15 they are referring to:
Forrest said the .223-caliber assault rifle (Bushmaster) that Woodson was carrying had a defaced serial number and had been altered to fire .50-caliber ammunition.
Altered? as in had a new upper attached to it?
Also, an AR-15 is not an assault rifle.
Cobray sells their 37mm flare launchers online (price approx. $500) if you are interested – HERE
-Thanks again for the tip Josh.
The United States Constitution – 10th Amendment states:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
The Firearms Freedom Act (FFA) is a fight for our 10th Amendment right.
In Montana, Tennessee, and hopefully soon in Utah, it would appear that a person can buy or manufacture NFA items (made in state) such as suppressors, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, 20mm rifles etc… without all the Federal paperwork, tax stamps, and other red tape.
In Montana, the bill states the following specific exemptions:
Section 5. Exceptions. [Section 4] does not apply to:
- a firearm that cannot be carried and used by one person;
- a firearm that has a bore diameter greater than 1 1/2 inches and that uses smokeless powder, not black powder, as a propellant;
- ammunition with a projectile that explodes using an explosion of chemical energy after the projectile leaves the firearm; or
- a firearm that discharges two or more projectiles with one activation of the trigger or other firing device.
Too bad about #4 covering fully automatic firearms. These bills are definitely a HUGE step in the right direction!
The Tennessee bill, and the Utah one have the same exceptions as the Montana one.
I can’t help but wonder if anyone has tested the limits of this yet.

Hat Tip: SayUncle
A military themed Rihanna video where she is in skimpy clothing, shooting guns, playing in the mud, standing on tanks etc…
Seriously what’s not to like?
For those that like rap I recommend her album. There are a ton of good songs on it.
For $8 with free shipping you can’t go wrong.
This video is total fail
At the very start it shows 2 kids playing with a gun. I know the point they are trying to get across, but really?
At 51 seconds the gun clicks, indicating that it actually would have fired a round when the guy not wearing the watch pulled the trigger.
Armatix must have caught on, because on their website the video now has that failed demo conveniently edited out.
You can read more about the Armatix gun on my other post – HERE
Or “Action Figure” as some of you may call it
Pretty good likeness actually.

I wonder if a Travis Haley doll is in the works? I bet he feels left out.
