This super hilarious video features my buddy Peter Palma, who you will remember from Top Shot Season 1. They really hit all the right funny notes in this vid. Check it out!
Bill Maher likens President Barack Obama to the National Rifle Association, Campus Carry bills are en vogue, and efforts to ban common AR-15 ammo continue.
This and more in The Second Scoop:
2.17.15 | Second Scoop: Obama AR-15 ammo ban, Conceal Carry Bill, Good Gal w/a Gun, Top Shots Butler/Vogel
The big news this week is President Obama through the ATF is proposing to ban "M855" AR-15 ammo, and wait for it, people are now panicking and buying M855 ammo and driving the price up.
This is so predictable. Here's the formula:
- Anti-gunner politician/agency talks about gun/ammo ban
- People go buy the thing that might be banned
- The End
Contact the ATF to voice your disapproval of the proposed ban. It won't do anything to increase public safety and it's just going to make sports shooting more expensive.

In this week's Second Scoop, Democrats introduce a new magazine restriction bill, Eric Holder complains about his failures as Attorney General, a Good Gal with a Gun takes us to Georgia, and Natalie Foster of the show Love at First Shot brings more women into the shooting world.
I'm finally crawling out of the flu hole and catching up on things. Thanks for your patience - here is this week's Second Scoop where I talk about huntress Jen Cardaro getting harassed for introducing hunting to kids, the Great American Outdoor Show is coming to Pennsylvania this next week, and things get blown up on Demolition Ranch.
Sorry for the lack of posts lately, last week was SHOT Show, the annual industry gun convention in Las Vegas. While I had a great time, I also caught the flu that's been going around the convention circuit since CES in early January. It's put me out of commission and it's Day 8 of being sick and I'm finally feeling better.
I'll try and get some updates out next week, but in the meantime if you're in the Bakersfield area I'll be there tomorrow at Friendly Firearms from 2-3PM and the Bakersfield Friends of NRA Banquet from 5-9PM if you want to come say hi, buy a book, and win some guns!
This week's Second Scoop is live below. #JeSuisCharlie, America FAIL and AK-47 FAIL are this week's topics.
I've been working with Oakley over the past two months, test driving their new "Tombstone" eyewear for shooters. They are simply amazing. Oakley chose me as the only media person to get an advanced copy of the glasses, and they let me break the story before the official announcement at SHOT Show next week.
You get the scoop here on my blog!

Viewers have been fascinated by what Oakley HQ showed me when I visited their headquarters in Southern California during a private tour. Check out why Oakleys are fantastic and why they're worth every penny.
Below are the two videos I filmed, and then you can check out my articles over at The Firearm Blog here.
I forgot to blog about Part 1 when it went up last month, but here's a really fun video where my German friend unearthed these old Disney comics which are in German, and we talk about all the guns in these comics!
