Las Vegas Shooting Initial Report | Luggage, Rifles, Revolver and Ammo

Las Vegas Mass Murder Initial Report, Luggage, Rifles, Revolver and Ammunition

Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- On 18 January 2018, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) released a preliminary report on the mass murder committed on 1 October 2017.

The report is unusual, a unique response to the public clamoring for facts after the shooting. Ordinarily, the LVMPD does not release information about an ongoing investigation.

This is an ongoing investigation and is not a complete report. However, the report lists a number of preliminary conclusions that many people will disagree with. Whether you disagree or not, the report contains a wealth of information and provides significant amounts of valuable data for those who are interested and attempting to understand the event, how it occurred, and what the shooter did in the years and weeks previous to the shooting from Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

There are excellent diagrams and pictures of the scene and the layout that make clear many of the confusions about the event.

A detailed inventory of the firearms found in the Mandalay Bay suite consisting of rooms 32-135 and 32-134 provides significant information. Time references to the numerous times that the shooter took luggage to the suite makes it clear that there was no difficulty in the shooter bringing the 23 AR-15 and AR-10 clones, 1 bolt action .308 rifle with scope, and 1 revolver to the suite without fear of detection.

The shooter brought five suitcase bags with him on September 25th. The shooter rolled one bag, and a bellman took the other four bags on a luggage cart. On 26 September, the shooter brought six suitcases and one rolling suitcase to the Mandalay Bay. The six suitcases were brought up by luggage cart with a bellman. The rolling suitcase was brought by the shooter.  This movement of luggage was with a different bellman than on 25 September.

On 26th September the shooter was seen in the valet area of Mandalay bay with two rolling suitcases.  It appears he left the Mandalay Bay with the two suitcases, then returned on 28 September with two rolling suitcases.

On September 30th, the shooter brought more suitcases to his room, which was now the suite of 32-135 and 32-134.

On October 1st, the shooter brought two more rolling suitcases and a bag into the Mandalay Bay.

In total, over a week and in at least four different events, the shooter, using rolling suitcases, luggage carts, and bellmen, moved at least 17 pieces of luggage in the Mandalay Bay.

None of this was even remotely a cause for alarm. Those of you who have spent any time traveling and using hotels know that the movement of five, six, or seven large suitcases into room and suites is a commonplace occurrence.  All of the rifles found in the suite could easily be disassembled into components that can fit into a large suitcase.  Some of the suitcases may have been used more than once.

All of the rifles and the revolver are identified by manufacturer and serial number in the report.  There were 13 AR-15 clones with 100 round magazines and bump stocks. This meant that the shooter would never have had to change magazines to shoot the number of cartridges expended. One AR-15 type rifle had a 40 round magazine.  One AR-15 type rifle did not have a magazine in it.  That shows 15 AR-15 type rifles in the suite.

There were Six AR-10 clones with 25 round magazines and two AR-10 clones without magazines in the rifles. There was one Ruger scoped bolt action rifle chambered in .308.

One Smith & Wesson model 342 AirLite Ti .38 revolver was found with four live rounds and one fired cartridge case in the cylinder. The shooter had purchased 29 firearms from 1982 to September 2016.  Of the firearms found in the Mandalay Bay suite, only the revolver had been purchased before September 2016.

At least 10 suitcases were found in the suite during the investigation.

Approximately 1,050 .223/5.56 empty cartridge cases were found in the suite. Only 8 .308/7.62 cartridge cases were listed as being found.

At least 14 loaded magazines were found in the suite, with about 5,280 rounds of live ammunition. The loaded magazines included steel 100 round AR-15 magazines, polymer 40 round AR-15 magazines, and polymer 25 round AR-10 magazines. Empty rifle magazines were also found. The magazines are not numbered by type in the report.

The report mentions that there were 1,965 leads investigated, including 21,560 hours of video and 251,099 images obtained. The analysis found 529 sightings of the shooter.

While it has been reported that the door of the suite had a hundred bullet holes, in fact, there were only about 35 shots fired through the door, resulting in about 200 bullet strikes as the projectiles went through the door and struck additional walls and doors inside Mandalay Bay. Security officer Campos was struck in the left calf by a bullet fragment, which he initially thought was from a BB or pellet gun.

On page 47 of the report, it is reported that several hundred images of child pornography were found on a Dell laptop in the Mandalay Bay suite. The investigation into those images is ongoing. The same laptop held evidence of numerous searches about outdoor venues and other information that would be relevant to planning the mass murder that took place.

The shooter fired about eight rounds of .308 at the fuel tanks at the airport. Google Earth shows the range to the tanks to be about 675 yards. The bullet strikes did not ignite any fuel. The pictures in the report look as though the bullets did not penetrate the tank.

This review covers only a small portion of the information in the preliminary report. Those who are interested can read the entire report at this link.

Deepening Pool of Blood from Gun Free Zones, Keeps Rising

Opinion

Resist 45 Kill the NRA Billboard

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- Red Storm Rising:

There are precious few of us who can remember any “school shooting” that occurred within CONUS, before 1990.

That was the year then-Senator Joe (“… and all you need is a double-barrel shotgun”) Biden proposed the “Gun-Free School Zone Act” that was subsequently passed and signed into law by our good friend, and professing “Republican,” George HW Bush!

This signaled the ominous commencement of the “Gun-Free Zone” movement, and the simultaneous beginning of school shootings in America!

This legislation makes it a federal offense for even a police officer in a school to shoot at a terrorist, who is in the process of murdering innocent children, when the officer is off duty! It makes one wonder if any of these donor-seeking politicians ever actually read the legislation upon which they’ve voting!

So ever since, we have been regularly concentrating large numbers of school children in an enclosed space, where no one present is allowed to use deadly force to protect them, unless they’re “on the clock.” And even then, many uniformed “SROs” are unarmed, per “school policy,” imposed by contemptible administrators who are far more worried about keeping their jobs than they ever will be about doing them!

Results should have been predictable!

Do you think we’ll ever see Brinks armored vehicles with signs on the side, saying “This is a Gun-Free Truck?”

As a society, we obviously value our cash infinitely more than our children. What is really important to us, we
protect with guns!

America’s liberals are fully invested, for the past five decades, in pushing a failed social-engineering experiment that has required the wholesale abandonment of Judeo-Christian ethics, and the insistence on “no consequences for bad behavior.” This has nurtured the evolution of maladjusted monsters, by twisting and warping long-accepted social norms. The disastrous, predictable result is:

  • Monsters here
  • Monsters there
  • Monsters everywhere!

The only viable solution is:

Guns, in good hands, protecting our children, schools, homes- as well as our cash!

Yet, just beneath the surface of elitist progressives’ verbalized offers to engage in “exploratory dialogue” with supporters of our Second Amendment, lies a depraved, deep-seated, pathological hatred of us and all gun-owners, that dates all the way back to 1917! Their real, and only, goal is the complete elimination of private ownership of guns in America, and always has been. Any “negotiation” in which they participate is an elaborate hoax, a cynical deception designed to camouflage true intentions.

Never doubt it!

In fact, one of their “provisional wings,” the quaint “Resist 45” group, taking their cue from ISIS, is now openly exhorting its people to murder NRA members. To their credit, they are at least straightforward about their intentions!

None are safe from these neo-Bolsheviks!

Are we in a new “October Revolution,” or just a continuation of the old one?

“No one should suffer from the great delusion that any form of Communism or Socialism, which promotes the dictatorship of the few instead of the initiative of the millions, can produce a happy or prosperous society.” ~ Charles E Wilson

NRA’s Wayne Lapierre Calls For More Protection & Guns At Schools ~ VIDEO

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- After a week of media silence following the school shooting in Florida, the National Rifle Association has gone on the offensive in its first public response to the massacre, pushing back against demands to blindly take away guns, the mainstream media, gun-control advocates and calls for stricter gun laws made by upset teenage survivors of the attack.

The gun rights group — a powerful force in American politics — used a series of facts, speeches and videos to try to blunt an emotionally charged wave of calls for new gun restrictions since a mad man armed with an AR-15 rifle killed 17 people at a South Florida high school.

As the teens who escaped the bloodshed in Parkland, Fla., have passionately campaigned for new laws, it appears the politics suffusing the fraught issue of gun control are shifting, with President Trump and some conservative lawmakers expressing a newfound willingness to consider at least modest measures.

While the NRA initially held back from the fray, that changed Wednesday and Thursday, as a spokeswoman debated survivors of the attack during a heated town hall and then Wayne LaPierre, the group’s chief executive, forcefully decried gun-control advocates and the media for its one-sided coverage of the shooting.

USCCA | Congress Needs to Pass National Concealed Carry Reciprocity

Concealed Handgun Permit Application

West Bend, WI-(Ammoland.com)- The United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) today urged lawmakers in Washington to include national reciprocity for concealed carry licenses in any gun-related measure considered by Congress in the days ahead.

“The only thing that can definitively stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun and if the goal of any proposed gun-related legislation is to strengthen public safety and protect Americans, then national reciprocity for concealed carry licenses should be included,” said Tim Schmidt, Founder & President of the United States Concealed Carry Association. “This legislation would not only protect law-abiding Americans from a patchwork of contradictory state laws, but it would also strengthen public safety by giving more Americans the ability to protect themselves and those around them.”

The Trump administration is signaling support for legislation that would enhance reporting for the FBI’s background-check database but some in Congress are also seeking to attach national reciprocity legislation. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act has already sailed through the House of Representatives and has the full support of President Trump. It now awaits action in the U.S. Senate where it has roughly 40 co-sponsors. Notably, when similar concealed-carry legislation came to a Senate vote in 2013 it received bipartisan support including from seven Democratic Senators, but was never passed into law.

The United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA), a Wisconsin-based organization with over 250,000 members, provides education, training and self-defense insurance to responsible American gun owners. USCCA was recently featured on CBS News’ 60 Minutes recently on a segment about the effort in Congress to pass reciprocity for concealed carry licenses.

BACKGROUND:

The United States Concealed Carry Association has been urging lawmakers in Congress to follow through on their promise to pass national concealed carry reciprocity, which would ensure that concealed carry permits issued in one state would be considered valid in the other 49 states. U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) introduced the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act through S.446 last year and Congressman Richard Hudson (R-NC) did the same through the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 in H.R. 38. Both bills would ensure that concealed carry permits issued in one state would be respected in them all.

About the USCCA

The U.S. Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) provides education, training and self-defense insurance to responsible American gun owners. Headquartered in West Bend, WI, the USCCA is the largest and fastest-growing association whose sole focus is the responsibly armed American.

Surviving the Coming Days, How Gun Rights Win – Part Two

Opinion

Surviving the Coming Days, How Gun Rights Win – Part Two

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Ok, so now you've taken a breather and calmed yourself down a little. You understand that the intensity being revved up by the media is going to get worse. Good. That's what yesterdays column was all about. Essentially asking you to keep your wits about you, unlike the other side, who through raw emotion are incapable of reasoning. That's precisely where we want them to be.

Any smart businessperson, for example, understands never to make a decision based solely on emotion. They know to chill out, take a step back until the feeling has subsided, objectively analyze the options, then move forward with the decision-making process based on facts, not emotion. Understand and remember that our opposition isn't, or frankly never does, think rationally about this issue. It is essential we keep our “feelings” in check at this moment in history. Let the other side go haywire. We can think clearly and rationally, and that's what separates us from the disease known as liberalism.

Why is this so important now?

Because now you have to stand up and fight. To do so efficiently, you must have your head about you. It is imperative that you be able to discuss the topics at hand from a position of strength, which comes from having truth, facts, and the Constitution on your side, and to be able to articulate as much when called upon to do so, without getting emotional. The media will never give you the platform they are providing the kids and parents screaming for your guns. They'll never offer massive face time to the kids who hold a different viewpoint, such as the millions of kids across the country who support gun rights and oppose gun control.

You'll never see those kids handed the opportunity to embarrass gun-hating politicians as they gave the gun-grabbers last night on that dog and pony show over at CNN. Ain't going to happen and we need to deal with it.

Back to the fight. This is a war. A war being thrust upon you by several different divisions of the same enemy army consisting of the political left, Democrat, gun-hating, machine and their billionaire-funded, prohibitionist, gun-control groups, masquerading as “gun safety advocates.” Their most potent weapon, however, isn't money and probably not what you might be thinking. It's not the kids who, while rightfully angry and making their voices heard, are primarily a product of their home environment, spewing a gun control message they've likely heard before, from the adults around them.

Then what is?

It's The Media, Stupid!

Mainstream Media

That's right. The most potent weapon of all, and available to every gun prohibitionist around the world (not just here in America), is the media and a 24-hour hysterical “news” cycle. A press that has been attacking (well documented, 14 plus pages on AmmoLand News alone) your gun rights for years! The only fresh ingredient to this recipe now is the kids. Kids who have seen things they should never have seen, and can articulate their gun-control push to a fawning media eager to provide a platform in their ongoing culture war against us.

Let me make this clear. I don't place blame on any American who uses their right to speak and assemble, no matter the subject. That's what makes this the greatest country on Earth. I can, and do disagree with their wrong-headed message, but they have a right to say it, as much as I have a right to criticize them.

So what do we do? We dig in, and we fight. We join our state organizations, too many to mention, to fight the Bloomberg gun-grabbers who are infecting states across the nation in their attempts to bring CA style crap to everyone. We join NRA to fight alongside millions of other gun owners and reach into the halls of Congress where the gun prohibitionists are infiltrating. We join the Second Amendment Foundation, the only organization fighting and winning battles in courtrooms and now responsible for over 80% of pro-rights legal victories, setting pro-gun precedent across the country. We act as responsible gun owners by seeking training from groups like the NRA, USCCA, and too many independent organizations and individual experts to count.

We get very vocal. We write letters to our representatives, local, state and federal, and we let the liberal, national, mainstream, and local media know we are watching them, and we do it every, damn, day. We get relentless in protecting our rights, and we VOTE. We make every effort to know the enemies of our freedoms, we read their propaganda, and we counter it. Invade them. Join their mailing lists, Twitter feeds, and Facebook groups. We talk to our school boards, our teachers, and we get involved with our children and what they are learning, or not learning!

We use every tool at our disposal to stay active and involved, and we never stop. We understand that the forces fighting this culture war against us are powerful and well-funded, but they lack one thing.

They lack the truth. We own that. Mark Walters

Gun Free Zone Fails Again on Campus

Gun Free Zone Fails Again on Campus

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- If you’re like me, then you hate the idea of a madman hurting our children. Unfortunately, it has been happening for a long time, but probably not the way you imagine. We’ve had “gun free” zones on campuses for almost three decades. Somehow we lost our outrage when guns were used in these so-called “gun free” zones. If a criminal can bring a firearm onto a college campus to rob and rape our students, then what is to stop a madman from doing the same thing..or worse. Here are the latest examples.

If a criminal can bring a firearm onto a college campus to rob and rape our students, then what is to stop a madman from doing the same thing..or worse.
  • Earlier this month, a University of California Berkeley student was robbed at gunpoint next to his on-campus housing unit. The four armed robbers got away even though the robbery occurred in broad daylight.
  • Two groups of students were robbed at the University of California/Los Angeles. They were robbed by two men who had knives and guns. These attacks occurred in the gun free zone around the campus and around the nearby hospital. The students were robbed and threatened, but not physically injured.
  • Another man was shot on the University of California campus in San Francisco. Two men pulled out guns and shot the suspect even though the location was next to City Hall. Both the campus and government buildings are “gun-free zones” where honest gun owners are disarmed.

These gun-free zones clearly failed to protect our students. I chose examples from California for a reason. Not only are California campuses “gun free” zones, but the counties where these attacks occurred are also “gun-free” as well. Honest men and women can’t get a license to legally carry a firearm in those counties. California has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. They have gun-free zones around schools, firearms registration, and mandatory background checks. Clearly, that hasn’t stopped criminals from using guns to victimize 19 and 20-year-olds on campus.

These gun laws at least accomplished one thing. They disarmed the older students and staff who could protect themselves off campus. If these people are vulnerable, then you can imagine how easy it is to hurt our elementary, junior high, and high school students.

Gun-free zones are an exercise in fantasy. Consider this if you doubt me. The first thing students and staff do when they are in danger is call a good guy with a gun. Now would be a good time to get rid of gun-free zones across the country. Let honest citizens protect themselves and those they love.

Well Done! – Learning from the Debate on Murderers in School

FASTER Faculty – Administration Safety Training and Emergency Response

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- We care about our children. That is why we take the debate on murderers in our schools so seriously. It is hard to get good information because the news media clearly has an agenda. Lots of people saw through the media spin. We looked past the click-bait headlines and focused on the truth.

School security isn’t an either-or proposition. It is a ‘yes, that is a good idea, and so is that one’ sort of solution. Here are several pieces of the answer.

Armed Staff

Sheriffs across the country said they will put armed staff in schools (and here and here). That is good, but it is only a start. One problem is those mass murderers are patient. We’ve seen that mass murderers either shot the uniformed officer first or waited until the officer left school. Studies showed us that it’s better to have undercover defenders in several locations across campus.

That takes training, and teachers want that training. The classes to train teachers as first responders fill up in minutes. One of the largest teacher training programs in the country has thousands of teachers on their waiting list but there isn’t enough money to train them all. I donated, but they need your donations too (and here).

Mental Health

Letting trained and licensed school staff go armed is the last line of defense. Lots of factors make our children safer and can prevent the problem before it brings a gun to school. It doesn’t grab the headlines, but treating the mentally ill is another step in the right direction (and here). As much as mental health treatment costs, it is cheaper to treat mental illness than to suffer the consequences of leaving it untreated.

Physical Security

There are lots of little steps that make our school buildings safer. The remedies are similar to what you’d do to protect your home. You secure your doors and windows before you instal a zillion dollar video system. (Grants are available.) Just like at home, your mere presence is a protective factor.

The sad news is that we ignored the problem of school violence for too long. We know that some students are struggling and in trouble. The Florida school murderer had police called to his home dozens of times.  The sensationalist media hasn’t helped, but maybe we’ve learned our lesson this time. I hope we’ll act sooner rather than waiting until the police come with guns to stop the next school shooting.

Report Of Two Handguns Left In U-Texas Bathrooms – SCC Comments

Report Of Two Handguns Left In U-Texas Bathrooms

AUSTIN, TEXAS – -(Ammoland.com)- On Wednesday, February 21, 2018, it was reported that within a 24-hour span, two unattended handguns were found inside two separate restrooms at UT-Austin.

The handguns have since been claimed by their owners, who are both license-to-carry (LTC) holders. Law enforcement and university officials are still determining if any legal or disciplinary action will be taken against the two individuals.

Students for Concealed Carry Southwest Regional Director Quinn Cox issued the following statement:

“As explained by UTPD, incidents like this are extremely rare, and for these two incidents to occur in the same week, at the same university is quite an anomaly. LTC holders have a responsibility not to put themselves or others in danger. The two events should serve as a reminder that LTC holders must be mindful of the location and condition of their firearms at all times.”

“This type of incident most commonly occurs when a license holder is new to concealed carry or frequently changes his or her manner of carry in order to accommodate different styles of clothing. We at Students For Concealed Carry recommend that all LTC holders adopt a consistent restroom routine that allows them to continuously maintain control of their firearms.”

See our related article “What Do You Do With Your Gun When You Use The Restroom? ~ AmmoLand News

About Students For Concealed Carry :

Students for Concealed Carry (SCC) is a national, non-partisan, grassroots organization comprising college students, faculty, staff, and concerned citizens who believe that holders of state-issued concealed handgun licenses should be allowed the same measure of personal protection on college campuses that current laws afford them virtually everywhere else. SCC is not affiliated with the NRA or any other organization. For more information on SCC, visit ConcealedCampus.org or Facebook.com/ConcealedCampus.

AMMO, Inc. Announces Night OPS Line

AMMO, Inc. Announces Night OPS Line

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.-(Ammoland.com)- AMMO, Inc. (OTC:POWW), AMMO, Inc. has completed research and development of the Night OPS line of ammunition and will begin production and distribution in late Q2.

The labs at AMMO, Inc. set out to create the ultimate round for law enforcement, military training, and self-defense use. Night OPS is the revolutionary combination of AMMO, Inc's two most notable technologies: non-incendiary visual ammunition and frangible hollow points. This blend from the STREAK (Listed as the sole “Cool Pick” ammunition of SHOT 2018) and OPS lines has some key advantages.

  • Violent crime happens most in the hours of darkness (OJJDP.Gov). With Night OPS, defenders and law enforcement can track their shots and adjust fire quickly.
  • Night OPS's tungsten-copper-composite frangible projectiles dump 100% of their energy in the target, minimizing the risk of pass-through and collateral damage.
  • Frangible projectile practically vaporizes on impact with steel targets. Spall, ricochet, and splash is practically eliminated.
  • Hyper-Clean technology fouls less, decreases malfunctions and cleaning time, and increases training time.

Night OPS enhances training for individuals and agencies alike. The visual aid generates no heat, and frangibility increases safety when shooting steel targets at handgun distances. The perfect choice for military and law-enforcement indoor and close-contact training.

About Ammo Incorporated:

With its corporate offices headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, and a manufacturing facility in Payson, Arizona, AMMO, Inc. (the “Company and/or AMMO”) designs and manufactures products for a variety of aptitudes, including law enforcement, military, hunting, sport shooting and self-defense (see www.ammo-inc.com). The Company was founded in 2016 with a vision to change, innovate and invigorate the complacent munitions industry. AMMO promotes branded munitions, including the Jesse James line of munitions and accessories, /stelTH/ subsonic munitions, and OPS (One Precise Shot), a lead-free frangible tactical line of munitions for self-defense.

President Trump’s School Safety Listening Session ~ VIDEO

Letters to the AmmoLand Editor: Got something on your mind? Let us know and you can see it here.

USA –  -(Ammoland.com)- President Trump held a “listening” session at the White House with mass shooting survivors, students, their parents, relatives and friends.

Many constructive suggestions were offered, especially the corrective measures implemented in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook school massacre.

Few demonized guns. Most focused on mental illness, school security, lack of enforcement of existing gun laws and why “see something, say something” frequently slipped through the cracks.

Many ideas will be implemented, as President Trump pushes his school safety agenda forward…..with or without Congress.

If then-president Obama, Senators Chris Murphy-D-CT and Richard Blumenthal -D-CT did more than bloviate at their Sandy Hook Photo-Op there might not have been the shooting carnage at the Broward County Parkland School that left 17 dead and scores of bereaved.

To use President Trump’s familiar moniker….”we’ll see”… which are his buzz words for, “it will get done!”

Kings, Monsters and Our Ingenious Second Amendment

Opinion

Human Rights Include the right to Keep & Bear Arms, any and all…

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- What are they really saying? What are they really proposing?

We are currently being treated to a whole new lexicon of “weasel words” and “weasel terms,” by leftists who just can’t seem to ever get to the point.

1) “Gun ‘safety’ legislation”

Exactly what do they mean by that? Specifically, what are they proposing? They never say. We only hear that “weapons of war” should never be in the hands of anyone,,, except of course, for their bodyguards.

2) “Improved background checks”

Improved how? Does this mean an unpaid parking ticket will now prevent Americans from owning guns? Just how “perfect” do I have to be in order to legally own a gun?

They won’t tell us!

We might recall Democrat-sponsored, and much-heralded, “diversion programs”, designed to prevent “youthful offenders” from acquiring criminal records that could prevent them from legally acquiring guns. This ill-conceived legislation actually aided the FL murderer.

Funny, but I don’t hear anyone, from either side of the aisle, proposing that we get rid of it.

The only thing I do hear is that I don’t “need” a gun.

Here in America, leftist politicians, and their media lackeys, aren’t really very good at anything, except telling the rest of us we have too much freedom.

We’re all told that we need to be “punished,” because we own guns. All of us who have never committed a crime, can’t be trusted.

When Democrats/liberals/leftists/RHINOs insist I can’t be trusted with my guns, why would I ever trust them with theirs?

We’re back to our ingenious Second Amendment.

Military small-arms are the one class of weapons most protected of all by our Second Amendment, because each of us is an involuntary member of the Militia. It’s our birthright, and our birth-obligation, like it or not.

Without the Second Amendment, the rest of our “inalienable rights” as Americans are just hollow promises, so much empty fluff, and will be gone with the wind. We’ll be back to a European feudal/caste system within a single generation.

“There is a darkness in you, in all of us, probably. Beasts we keep chained. Ordinary men have to keep these chains strong, for when we let the beast loose, society will turn upon us with fiery vengeance.

Kings though…well, who is there to turn upon them? So their ‘chains’ are made of straw.

It is the curse of kings that they can become monsters, and invariably do.” ~ David Gemmell

Magpul Tejas El Original Belt | Long Term Review

Magpul's Tejas El Original Gun Belt offers a low-cost option for those looking for a really solid gun belt.

U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- Finding a great gun belt that does a good job of keeping the weight of a pistol and holster off of your pants that doesn't cost an arm and a leg isn't the easiest task. When Magpul introduced the Tejas El Original Gun Belt at SHOT Show 2016, I took close notice because the Tejas El Original might be exactly the belt that I have been looking for thanks to its unique construction and very palatable price point.

Disclaimer: All photos are from when I originally bought the belt. I have bee using the Tejas El Original daily for over a year and a half now.

I didn't need something that was going to support the weight of a full-size gun since I normally carry my Glock 43 in an older Stealthgear USA Ventcore holster but sure so appreciate a stiff gunbelt that I don't need to cinch down to keep the gun where I want it.

As you can see, the Tejas El Original is super stiff and should do a great job at supporting the gun and holster.

The magic of the Magpul Tejas El Original is that they have combined top grade bull hide leather with a reinforced polymer interior. I went with the Chocolate color since most of my leather goods are a darker brown than the light brown color and I detest black leather for some reason. The color is a nice, dark brown with a nice sheen to it and has worn rather well over the last year and a half. The leather is still in very good even with holsters being out on and taken off over the course of the last 18 months or so and the reinforced polymer looks like the day it was new even with 18 months of sweat and wear attacking it.

Magpul includes some pretty awesome ‘rollmarks' on the inside of the belt.

One feature that I really appreciated that was included on the Tejas El Original is the tool-free fasteners. While I don't reconfigure my belt often, depending on the pair of pants, I may have a need to remove the belt loop in order to get the buckle in the right place to accommodate my Old Style Designs holster. The tool-free fasteners appear to be MIM parts, but since they are just holding the belt together, they aren't exactly a high-stress part.

Tool-free fasteners keep the belt easy to configure for your needs.

The chrome plated buckle is stylish and functional in my opinion. I found that my acid sweat would eat some of the finish off over the 18 months I have been wearing the belt, but it still remains corrosion free and functional even though some of the finish has been removed.

Even though I didn't take a photo of the holes, Magpul uses an 8 hole system where the holes are placed at 3/4″ apart so that the wearer can get as close to a perfect fit as possible with a traditional style belt.

The buckle features a nice chrome plated finish that could pass for a dress belt if needed.

What belt was I replacing? A Crossbreed Holsters belt that had seen better days. Less than a year into using the belt in the Texas heat, the leather had broken down quite a lot and no longer gave the gun and holster the support that it needed. The once very usable gun belt now was nothing more than a wet noodle made from cracked leather.

A worn out Crossbreed belt with less than a year of use.

I firmly believe that a good gun belt should support the weight of the gun and holster without the need to tighten it down a ton. After some real wear, the Crossbreed belt was slightly better than a department store belt, but nowhere near where it should be in terms of rigidity.

A floppy gun belt does no one any good.

I couldn't be happier than I am with the Magpul belt, especially since it came in at under $100! I fully expected to get no more than a season out of the belt given how destructive the large amounts of sweat that soak my belts in the middle of the hot Texas summers, but the El Original holds strong.

The Magpul El Original is still in daily service after 18 months of hard use and performs just like it did when new.

The Magpul Tejas El Original carries an MSRP of $84.95 and is well worth it, especially if you can find them on sale somewhere. If you want to learn more about the Tejas El Original, check out the Magpul website.

Why Do Teachers Have To Die To Protect Their Kids ~ VIDEO

by Laura Carno

Why do we expect teachers to die to protect kids, when there is a lawful option for them to protect their kids and live?

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- When it comes to school violence, why do we expect teachers to die to protect kids, when there is a lawful option for them to protect their kids and live?

Think about football coach Aaron Feis at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. Coach Feis had no choice but to put his body between bullets and kids. He died a hero to protect kids. But what if he had a choice to live and protect those same kids?

In many states, there are lawful methods to allow armed staff on K-12 campuses, which typically includes the authorization of an individual to act as a member of school security, and a contract between the school board and the employee. This is different than schools that have School Resource Officers (SROs) or other full-time, armed and uniformed security guards.

We ask a lot of teachers, but we shouldn’t ask them to face deranged killers with no chance to save their lives and the lives of their kids.

But that is exactly what we ask teachers and other school staff members to do when the law prohibits them from defending themselves, and the children whose safety is entrusted to them, when they are faced with someone armed in their school.

There are thousands of school staffers who are lawfully armed across the country in K-12 schools today. Who are these volunteers? They are teachers, janitors, principals, and superintendents. Most have had their Concealed Weapons Permit for years and have already made the decision to protect themselves and their families outside of the workplace. They have simply been —up to the point of being authorized to carry— disarmed at work.

Why should the natural right of a school staff member to choose her own self-defense and the defense of those around her, end when she walks on campus?

Many feel better about the safety of their local campus when they have an SRO or other full-time security staff. And they should. The addition of a highly visible security force can be helpful in preventing some episodes of school violence, and on-site security can be helpful with immediate response in the aftermath of an incident. But it’s not enough in the case of these sick killers who plan out their massacres carefully. Because SROs and other security officers are in uniform, the killer knows just where they are. If a school is large enough for an SRO, it has multiple doors, multiple hallways, and likely multiple buildings.

There was an SRO on the campus of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during the massacre. He wasn’t anywhere near the scene of the carnage, and that may have been by the killer’s design.

In the 2013 murder of 17-year-old Claire Davis at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, CO, there was also an SRO on the campus. He heard the gunfire and sprinted at full-speed toward the sound of the guns. It took him 45-seconds to get to the scene. When the SRO arrived, the gunman shot himself, potentially saving more lives. But it wasn’t enough to save Claire.

In Colorado, school boards and charter school boards can authorize staff to carry concealed on campus. At FASTERColorado.com, we train these heroes for free if the school can’t afford the tuition. We imported this 3-day, lifesaving training curriculum from FASTERSavesLives.org in Ohio. The Ohio team is helping other states to rollout this critical training.

Laura Carno

Consider this: the mindset of an active killer is to have as high a body count as they can manage. Most don’t fear death because that is part of their plan. What they do fear is dying without the “fame” that comes with taking a high number of innocents with them. More armed, anonymous, concealed-carriers on campus provide a better opportunity to stop the slaughter when it starts.

Armed teachers have a fighting chance to stop the killer and save their kids. We shouldn’t expect them to die to protect their kids, when there is a legal option in most states for them to protect their kids —and live.

Media Sensationalism Partly To Blame For School Shootings

Don’t Name Them

BELLEVUE, WA –-(Ammoland.com)- When anti-gunners point fingers of blame for tragic school shootings, there is plenty of room for media sensationalism in that ugly spotlight, the Second Amendment Foundation said today.

“Last week’s heartbreaking attack on students and faculty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida is made even more terrible because the suspect is getting more than his share of fame,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb.

“His face has been all over television and newspaper front pages, and there is a concern that this kind of attention might inspire somebody else to seek this same kind of infamy.”

Gottlieb pointed to a project at Texas State University’s ALERRT (for Advance Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training) Center called “Don’t Name Them.” It recognizes the responsibility of the press to identify criminal suspects, using their names and likenesses to help in the apprehension, and to report criminal charges. However, beyond that, the “Don’t Name Them” effort encourages the press to instead focus on the victims.

“There are emerging details in this story that strongly suggest Broward County authorities and the FBI may have dropped the ball on the suspect in this shooting,” Gottlieb noted. “But the media will concentrate on stories about gun control, with demands to know how the suspect could legally acquire the gun he used.

“The ‘Don’t Name Them’ campaign might help by discouraging attention seekers from launching a copycat attack just to become famous,” he added. “There has been some research that indicates an increase in such events when an initial incident is sensationalized.

“So it appears,” Gottlieb concluded, “that the media may be partly to blame in all of this. That’s certainly not something I would be proud of. We certainly recognize the duty of the media to legitimately report the news, and the press must remain free to do its job. Maybe all we’re suggesting is that the media be as responsible with their First Amendment rights as they demand gun owners should be when exercising their Second Amendment rights.”

The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control.

The Real Russian Threat

Opinion

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- The indictment of 13 Russians for interfering in the American election is the tiny tip of a large iceberg. We are beginning to be forced to confront how dangerous and how determined President Putin and his machine is to remake the world in an anti-Western manner.

We are faced with a determined opponent whose president apparently authorized an effort to either manipulate the political future of the United States or simply incite division. This pattern is not limited to the United States. President Emmanuel Macron of France has openly complained about Russian intervention in French politics. In Britain, there have been clear cases of Russian dissidents poisoned in a classically Russian style. In Estonia, Georgia, and Ukraine, we have seen even more overt and aggressive intervention by the Russians.

  • In Estonia, the internet was overwhelmed in 2007 in wide-ranging cyberattacks.
  • In Georgia, there have been a combination of cyberattacks, and militia and military actions.
  • In Ukraine, we have seen direct warfare in the seizing of Crimea and eastern Ukraine (the former through overt Russian forces and the latter through local militias heavily reinforced by Russian forces). There have also been cyber operations, propaganda campaigns, and targeted assassinations in Ukraine – including in Kiev, the nation’s capital city.

In terms of direct actions and provocations, there is no other country in the world that has made as many active efforts to irritate and undermine other countries as Putin’s Russia.

Despite Russia’s long pattern of active, multi-faceted aggression in multiple countries, our foreign policy establishment continues to deal with each provocation on a case-by-case basis.

Our elites have managed to avoid reality in dealing with Putin and his Russia for two decades.

In 2001, President George W. Bush said, “I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy… I was able to get a sense of his soul.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton launched a “reset” on March 6, 2009, albeit with a reset button that was spelled wrong. Instead of saying “reset” in Russian, the button said overcharged. Then she allowed the Russians to acquire a good bit of our uranium.

President Barack Obama, in March 2012, told then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would be easier to deal with after the election: “This is my last election … After my election I have more flexibility,” Obama said. The two leaders did not realize their microphones were on, as Obama promised to be more flexible on missile defense and other issues after the election. Medvedev promised to tell Putin, who was set to replace him as president a few weeks later.

The foreign policy establishment has approved of this Alice in Wonderland approach to Russia as part of a larger, disastrous misunderstanding of reality. With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the American foreign policy establishment embraced the fantasy of a “new world order,” in which the United States would work with like-minded countries to create order and use diplomacy instead of violence to settle differences.

Tragically for their well-meaning dream, the world refused to go along. From the violence of Islamist supremacists, to the determination of Hamas and Hezbollah to destroy Israel, to the North Korean and Iranian nuclear programs, to the resiliency of the Taliban in Afghanistan, to the military buildup of China, to Russian aggression, the foreign policy elite has been wrong about the nature of the emerging world. It makes one wonder why they are considered elite.

The recently published National Security Strategy report is a first major effort to turn American policy back towards realism and an honest assessment of the threats which could endanger us.

China may be the bigger long-term threat, but Russia is clearly the more active disrupter of the world order today.

The Russians have adopted and developed a doctrine called “hybrid warfare.” Essentially, it argues that competition between states and non-state actors can be fluid. Hybrid warfare escalates and winds down activity by simultaneously using various traditional and non-traditional tactics – such as psychological campaigns, cyber campaigns, low-level violence with thugs and gangs, limited warfare with regular forces, and major war. Theoretically, this doctrine could include, if necessary, the use of nuclear weapons.

Think of hybrid warfare as a series of dials for various modes of aggression, which Russia can turn up and down as needed. This creates a multi-layered, non-linear system of strife that is very difficult for traditional defense and foreign policy doctrines to analyze and counter. This, of course, assumes that the activist state remains in control of the dials.

Caught between Western economic and technological superiority and China’s enormous population, which is increasingly backed by a larger and more advanced economy, the Russians are increasingly turning toward modernized, usable nuclear weapons – a very dangerous prospect.

The Cold War was dominated by hydrogen warheads designed to kill entire cities. While President Eisenhower had favored tactical nuclear weapons, after 1960 a consensus grew that any nuclear war would risk being uncontrollable – and even small battlefield nuclear weapons could lead to city-killing thermonuclear exchanges.

Russia lost an estimated 31 million soldiers and civilians in World War II. It lost 300,000 soldiers and more than 1 million civilians during the siege of Leningrad (now St. Petersburg). An estimated 1.1 million soldiers were killed, wounded, missing, or captured, and 40,000 civilians died at Stalingrad (now Volgograd). Putin and his allies are keenly aware of the danger of mass death in a real war. They are determined to win such a war through tactical nuclear weapons, if need be.

In developing a strategy for containing, deterring, and if needed, defeating the Putin regime, we must remember every day that they already have 6,800 nuclear weapons, 1,710 of which are deployed strategic warheads (vastly more than any country except the United States).

It is obvious from the details of the indictments that the Russian effort to interfere with the American election had to have had Putin’s knowledge and approval.

This level of systematic hostility combined with the Russian behavior around the world is going to require a national security response rather than a criminal justice response.

Remembering Reverend Billy Graham ~ VIDEO

Reverend Billy Graham

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- The evangelist Billy Graham died Wednesday at his home in Montreat, N.C., his family has announced. He was 99.

Born in Charlotte, N.C., Graham was ordained a Southern Baptist minister in 1939. During his work in ministry, he wrote more than 30 books and conducted the annual Billy Graham Crusades until his retirement from active ministry in 2005. His last book, Where I Am: Heaven, Eternity, and Our Life Beyond the Now, was published in 2015.

Dr. Robert George, a professor at Princeton University and a former chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, compared Graham to St. John Paul II and other religious figures, saying that while he was “firmly rooted” in his denomination, Graham was able to reach all people.

“let those who have spiritual ears to hear: HEAR what the Holy Spirit and the Spirit of THE LORD Yeshua, the Lord Jesus Christ is saying to the seven churches…”

Reverend Graham left us many moving video sermons that are worth watching, including his last message to the world.

God bless the Reverend Billy Graham.
