Awesome video, but I don’t think it is a very effective way to promote their service.

The message of the video is that “You don’t need a gun to protect your kids” from child predator scumbags. First of all, like I mentioned in previous posts I do not give a shit about the lives of murderers, rapists, child predators, etc… so saying you don’t need to shoot them, and that you should instead sign up for an email notification service that AmberWatch provides, and that will protect you kids seriously makes me ROFL.  I say shoot them all the first time they do something that makes them a danger to society.

Riddle me this… so you get an “alert” from AmberWatch which says that a man in a fake icecream truck tried to abduct 2 girls on the other side of the city where your son or daughter is.  What happens next?  Does batman work for Amberwatch? Or do you drop everything you are doing and race through traffic at 80mph frantically trying to find your kid.  All i’m saying is that their business plan seems to have some holes in it. Another big one being the fact that it appears that anyone can submit an “Event” to their website.  Is there any quality control?  The main AmberWatch foundation website says that the alerts are “Vetted And Authenticated by the AmberWatch foundation”, but I really don’t see how.  Do they know where every danger to your child is, but are just waiting for someone to lodge a complaint? I doubt it.

All that said… if I were a parent I probably would sign up for the service, but it would be supplementary to my gun… not instead of it.

One last thing… I hope no one sees that video and trys shooting dual guns in the air.  Not a great idea considering you have no idea where those bullets are ending up.

Also, I am going through my emails and will reply to everyone who emailed me shortly.

I see that you guys are having quite the discussion on the ATF Decrees An Airsoft Rifle A Real Firearm post.  I’ll have to go through the comments later on and read your thoughts.

Thanks a lot!

I guess I answered my own question I posed in the title of this article, because it appears that neither one of these are available to the public yet.

As long as it can carry a small payload of possibly a camera, beer, guns, or gun related items… put me down for one! I know some options already exist, but they are super expensive and geared more towards the military and related businesses.

Ottawa, Canada – Repealing Canada’s long-gun registry would set back the significant gains in suicide prevention since the registry was introduced, emergency doctors and public health organizations said Wednesday.

In an open letter to MPs, 28 medical and health organizations said most firearms deaths in Canada are suicides, and the guns most frequently used are rifles and shotguns. They argued gun-related deaths and suicides in particular have diminished since the advent of the long-gun registry in 1995.

Full Story – HERE

Heh… so since people aren’t buying that the gun registry stops crime, they decided to make it a public health and safety issue.

Well Played…

Interestingly enough, the suicide rate in Canada is almost equal to that of the United States, even though guns in Canada are so heavily controlled (Source).  No telling from that source how many are gun related, but I’m sure the information is out there.  If there really is a correlation between gun possession and suicide as these doctors say, then why isn’t the U.S. suicide rate far higher, seeing as there are way more privately owned guns.

Developed by Colt back in the 1930s. The rate of fire is listed at 700 rounds per minute (For comparison, the Glock 18 ROF is 1200 rounds per minute):

The curved magazine is pretty unique looking on a handgun!

Notorious gangster John Dillinger (who the recent movie Public Enemies is based on) and his gang had a similar weapon in their arsenal, only theirs was converted to .38 super.

Notice the fully auto M1911A1 has the same foregrip as Dillinger’s Thompson Sub machine gun does in the movie poster.  This is obviously for better controll with such a high rate of fire.

There are a number of pictures of the Dillinger M1911A1 floating around, but this one is the best quality I have saved (Click picture to enlarge):

Pretty classy looking if you ask me!

Seems like overnight, The Bushmaster ACR is now available to the public.

A search of gunbroker results in 3 auctions where.  All of which are currently under $3000.

I even watched one end earlier today for $2800 (HERE)

The big question on my mind is, now that the Bushmaster ACR seems to be readily available… what is going to happen with Jesse James’ rifle?

He is the guy that won the first ACR in a silent auction (Details Here) then proceeded to put it up on gunbroker with a starting bid of $8500… only to have it bid up to its current price of $16000.  There are 2 days and 21 hours left in his 14 day auction, and the reserve still isn’t met.

Oh what a difference 2 weeks can make.  All I can say is that I hope he had some sort contract with that wealthy private collector, because otherwise he really shit the bed on this one.   I guess if worse comes to worse he can always just keep the rifle and his unfortunate lesson in economics.

I think Jesse follows the blog, because he commented on the last post.  Hopefully he can chime in and let us know what the deal is.
