Gun maker Weatherby, Inc. issued a safety recall on March 21 that covers a limited number of Weatherby SA-08 model semi-automatic shotguns.
The company says some of the models, which hit stores on March 11, 2013, could accidentally discharge when the bolt closes during the chambering a live shot shell. Also, the company says it has identified the problem and will fix any model affected by the issue.
Owners are urged to stop using the gun immediately as it could result in an accidental discharge and severe injury.
The company says it will repair affected models at no charge. To determine whether or not your model SA-08 28-gauge shotgun is faulty, check out Weatherby’s website to search the serial number or call the company at t 1-800-227-2018, extension 6, or 1-805-227-2600.
Weatherby recalled a number of SA-08 model shotguns in the past due to similar issues. The company identified the trigger/firing assembly as the issue of concern.

Democrats move to ban ALL Centerfire Rifle Ammunition

From Sebastian at Shall Not Be Questioned, we find out about two Democrat Bills to ban all Centerfire Rifle Ammunition on the basis that the soft body armor worn by police officers which is designed to defeat Handgun ammunition can be defeated by Rifle Ammunition. 

Bills H.R. 2566 and H.R. 1358, would redefine how bullets are described as "Armor Piercing".  As most of us know, a ballistic bullet resistant vest, will not stop most rifle rounds.  Nor was it intended or designed to.

So once again, please contact your Representatives and Senators and tell them they need to oppose both of these Bills and any Bills like them.

If you don't know who your Representative or Senator is or don't know how to contact them, please use the following links to search for them and their contact information.

Please make your voices heard in Congress.  Don't let them try to slip another zinger past to hurt our Rights.

Ar-15 855 ammo ban

They are out to take our 855 away...
StopBATFE-1500x1500
Oppose BATFE’s Expansion of the Federal "Armor Piercing" Ammo Ban and Tell Congress to Act
President Obama insisted that if Congress would not enact his gun control agenda, he would do so on his own, through executive action. Whatever else can be said of the president’s track record, he is doing his utmost to keep that promise. Having failed to enact a federal ban on the AR-15, America’s most popular rifle, he’s now using the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to do the next best thing. BATFE is now proposing to ban a whole class of common rifle ammunition used in that overwhelmingly popular firearm. Unfortunately, that’s just the beginning of BATFE’s latest move.
The 'comments' need to be in by March 16th. As others have said, please be polite and give them a cogent comment...
Write the BATFE and your members of Congress using the link below and express your opposition to the BATFE proposal to ban common rifle ammunition used by millions of gun owners.You may call your members of Congress at 202-224-3121.
  1. Via email at APAComments@atf.gov (follow the instructions at the link for submitting comments).
  2. Via fax at (202) 648-9741.
  3. Via mail to Denise Brown, Mailstop 6N-602, Office of Regulatory Affairs, Enforcement Programs and Services, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, 99 New York Avenue, NE, Washington, DC 20226: ATTN: AP Ammo Comments.
Finally, please contact your U.S. Senators and Member of Congress. Urge them to oppose BATFE's attempt to ban M855 handgun ammunition and other rifle cartridges that are overwhelmingly used by law-abiding Americans for self-defense, sport shooting and other legitimate purposes as "armor piercing." Use the "Write Your Lawmakers" feature on our website or call the Congressional Switchboard at (202) 225-3121.
