Advertising on the Gun Blog Black List

For all the SEO Merchants out there, please stop sending me e-mails asking to "Buy" a "Sponsored" Post on the GBBL.

The GBBL DOES NOT accept paid advertisements or sponsored posts.

Also please stop asking me to add your "COMMERCIAL" Website that has NO blog to the GBBL.

If you only have a blog that you might update 3 times in the last year but the rest of your site is nothing but trying to sell your products, you will not be listed.


I'm sorry for having to post this, but after getting 14 e-mails in 7 days from 14 different SEO and "Advertisers", I'm tired of typing back that the GBBL doesn't accept "posts" paid or otherwise.  Especially when I have ALREADY posted this information: Guest Posting - For The Record

And remember, if you want your blog listed in the "Regional Directory", please e-mail me your information.

PSA...

If you've EVER shot at Peacemaker National Training Center in West Virginia, this heads up is for you...
PNTC Members and Customers,
We would like to thank each of you for being members and customers of PNTC and we look forward to your continued support and use of the complex. We cannot stress enough how much we appreciate and need your continued support.
We feel compelled inform our members and customers regarding a recent court ruling related to PNTC’s private customer information. Specifically, a resident of Virginia has filed a nuisance complaint against PNTC alleging that noise from operation of the shooting range is a nuisance, and therefore interferes with his property rights. This complaint was filed in Berkeley County Circuit Court and is before Circuit Court Judge Grey Silver, styled Ben and Diane Goldstein v. Peacemaker Properties, LLC and Peacemaker National Training Center, LLC, Civil Action No. 15- C-520. Court documents filed in the case are public record and may be reviewed through the Circuit Clerk’s office.
Although our legal team pointed out that Berkeley County, WV specifically exempts shooting ranges from their noise ordinance and prevents nuisance claims against shooting ranges, the complaint was filed and not dismissed by the court. You may also access the Berkeley County Noise Ordinance at this link: http://www.berkeleycountycomm.org/docs/ordinances/amendnoiseord0409.pdf
Despite numerous motions and requests to reconsider, and numerous mediation efforts with the plaintiff, the court has  ordered PNTC to produce the below documents and other private records under a “Protective Order.” Under this order, the plaintiffs and their counsel are legally permitted to access the following information:

-     All member files
-     All waivers from any person who has accessed PNTC, to include all law enforcement, federal agency personnel, military personnel and foreign military personnel names
-     All shooting competition files and lists
-     All training information and lists
-     All customer waivers
-     Identities of all persons who have used PNTC ranges
-     All ATF & NFA records (to include Forms 4473 and ATF bound book information)
Unfortunately, PNTC is unable to answer additional questions or comment on this matter at this time. Please know that we have done everything in our power to protect your private information, but we must comply with the court order.
Again, we look forward to seeing you soon and thank you for your support and understanding. Thank You,
Cole McCulloch – President
Peacemaker National Training Center
This is NOT good, as there is no telling how that information will be used or disseminated... And if I remember correctly, they will have name, address, phone number and caliber of weapon fired... Dammit...

NRA-ILA - House Passes Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act

House Passes Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act
Legislation Protects Due Process Rights for Veterans


Fairfax, Va.— The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) applauds the House of Representatives today for passing The Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act (H.R. 1181), a bill that protects the due process rights of veterans, in a 240-175 vote.
"The constitutional rights of our veterans must be strongly protected," said Chris W. Cox, executive director, NRA-ILA. "The House vote today is a step forward in ensuring our veterans' rights are not infringed upon."
The VA has been effectively banning veterans who receive disability benefits and use a fiduciary to help manage those benefits from gun ownership. These individuals are being stripped of their Second Amendment rights by a bureaucratic rule that denies them due process. 
There is no data indicating a correlation between needing help managing money and being a danger to oneself or others – the criterion the government must meet before denying a person their Second Amendment rights. 
If enacted into law, the Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act would ensure that going forward, veterans who use a fiduciary would not be stripped of their  constitutional rights unless a judicial authority first finds they pose a danger to themselves or others. This ensures due process rights for all veterans.
"Needing help managing your money does not make you a danger to society. The NRA is pleased with the House vote today and we look forward to the Senate taking action soon," concluded Cox. 
The NRA thanks Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy , Majority Whip Steve Scalise and Chairman Phil Roe for their leadership on this matter.

NRA Applauds Senate's Bipartisan Vote to Respect Due Process for Gun Owners

NRA Applauds Senate's Bipartisan Vote to Respect Due Process for Gun Owners 



Fairfax, Va.— The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) today applauded the U.S. Senate's passage of H.J. Res. 40, a joint resolution to revoke a final rule made by the Obama administration that would strip law-abiding Americans of their Second Amendment rights. The resolution passed by a bipartisan vote of 57-43.
"Today's Senate vote was the next step in rolling back some of the egregious government overreach that characterized the Obama era," said Chris W. Cox, executive director, NRA-ILA. "Congress is reversing a last-minute, back-door gun grab that stripped law-abiding Americans of their rights without due process."
Late last year, the Social Security Administration (SSA) finalized a proposed rule to ban certain recipients who use a representative payee from owning firearms. This ill-conceived action stripped some of the most vulnerable Americans of their right to keep and bear arms without due process.
The NRA immediately opposed the Obama administration's efforts when the proposal was first announced in summer of 2015. The NRA has fought every step of the way to ensure that social security recipients are not stripped of their rights without due process of law.
Under the Congressional Review Act, Congress is allowed to dispose of any actions an outgoing administration initiates in its final six months. This rule was implemented during that time frame. The bill received bipartisan support, passing the House last week House by a 235-180 vote. Today's bipartisan Senate vote of 57-43 is the next step in reversing Obama's unconstitutional gun grab.  The bill now moves to President Donald Trump's desk.
"We look forward to President Trump signing this important legislation into law," concluded Cox.
The NRA thanks Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX) and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for their work on this important legislation.
