Washington: CPL Permit Confidentiality Bill Introduced

NRA-ILA News - Wed, 01/17/2018 - 13:38
Last week, Washington legislators introduced an NRA-backed bill to protect the private, personal information of Washington's concealed pistol license holders from public records requests.  Senate Bill 6173, sponsored by Senator Dean Takko (D-19), and House Bill 2329, sponsored by Representative Jim Walsh (R-19), would add clarifying language to Washington’s existing Public Records Act to ensure that concealed pistol licenses, along with any supporting documentation, are exempt from public disclosure.  This proposal remains consistent with the existing law's protection of records that contain individual, personal information- just as library cards and bus pass user information is also protected.

The MeoAce 3×20 Tactical Sight is the latest optic to join Meopta’s ever expanding lineup of sights and scopes.

The MeoAce introduces an illuminated reticle compatible with 5.56 NATO and 7.62×39 NATO up to 400 meters. The compact sight accommodates night vision to expand shooting performance into the evening and late night hours, while the reticle features 12 intensity settings. These settings allow shooters to dial in brightness to pair with environmental light and weather conditions.

The MeoAce uses Meopta’s proprietary MeoBright lens multi-coatings to reduce glare and reflection. Alternatively, the MeoDrop coatings deliver hydrophobic performance for “the highest level of visual clarity in adverse weather conditions.” Meopta says the lens coatings repel both rain and snow in addition to skin oils, dirt and grime that can find their way onto optical surfaces.

“The MeoAce sight is a rugged, high-performance optic and part of Meopta’s commitment to deliver the finest European optical quality to the tactical and L.E. markets here in the U.S.,” Reinhard Seipp, general manager of Meopta USA, said in a press release.

The MeoAce 3×20 is set to land on consumers in February 2018 with a MSRP of $1,299.

DeSantis lines up new Pipe Hitter Appendix IWB Holster

DeSantis expands its arsenal of holsters with the introduction of a new appendix inside-the-waistband holster called the Pipe Hitter.

The Pipe Hitter boasts a 100-percent Kydex construction, delivering rigidity as well as durability to concealed carriers. The AIWB holster incorporates an integral mag pouch into the design, encouraging shooters to carry their everyday carry gear in an all-in-one, easy to access package.

The holster offers adjustability, accommodating for both height and cant tweaks. These modifications, easily made by consumers, grant a more custom feel and fit for those toting Glocks day-to-day. Yes, we did say Glocks. Looks like the Pipe Hitter is currently only open to Glock fans with compatibility circling Glock 19, Gen 5 Glock 19, 23 and 32 models.

The Pipe Hitter is fitted with DeSantis tuckable C-Clips. However, the holster maker says optional J-Clips are available for purchase for those that prefer the J-style. The AIWB holster is available now from DeSantis with a retail price of $59.

Massachusetts officals order bump stock turn-in under threat of prosecution

Officials with the Commonwealth reached out to Massachusetts gun owners to caution them the clock is ticking to hand over any bump stocks or trigger cranks.

According to a statement by the Gun Owners’ Action League, the state’s National Rifle Association affiliate, letters have been going out from state regulators to licensed gun owners warning that the controversial devices are illegal after Feb. 1. The letter adds that those who have them will have a short time period to arrange for their surrender.

“Retention of such a prohibited item beyond the 90 day grace period will expose the owner to criminal prosecution,” says Daniel Bennett, secretary of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety.

Under the new state law passed as part of a spending bill, those found guilty of possession of such devices could face anywhere from 18 months to life in prison and there is no provision to grandfather the accessories.

“In our opinion this is an illegal and unconstitutional taking of property without compensation by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts,” says GOAL in a statement, advising they are weighing their options moving forward.

The state was the first to adopt a ban on the devices following their use in the Las Vegas Route 91 Harvest festival shooting that left 58 dead. Filling in for Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito signed the measure into law just a day after the Commonwealth’s legislature forwarded the proposal to the governor’s office for consideration. Lawmakers rushed widely different bills through their respective chambers in October, only holding a token public hearing after the fact.

Under the ban’s framework, a bump stock is defined as a device that increases a gun’s rate of fire by using the recoil of the firearm “to generate a reciprocating action that facilitates repeated activation of the trigger.” Trigger cranks are classified as a device attached to a firearm that activates the trigger using a lever turned “in a circular motion,” with limited exceptions for guns such as Gatling guns which are specifically designed to use such a crank.

During the bill’s legislative process, state Attorney General Maura Healey led a call from 33 state and territorial attorneys general to Congress to ban the devices.

The state is not alone in its regulatory expansion targeting bump stocks. Down the Eastern Seaboard in New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie signed a ban in that state earlier this week which went into effect immediately. Bump stock owners in the Garden State have 90 days to surrender their once unregulated accessories or face as much as three to five years in prison.

Magpul: We now have 10 round Glock mags for those behind the lines (VIDEO)

General Gun News - Wed, 01/17/2018 - 08:30

For those Glock lovers living in “less-than-free states” that don’t want to move to Texas, Magpul is offering what they bill as a reliable state-compliant 9mm mag.

With 10 round options now for both the G17 and 19, Magpul bills the latest parabellum PMAGs as working in standard, compact and sub-compact doublestack 9mm Glock handguns, with a restricted capacity to abide local laws in places such as California, Colorado, Illinois and New York. The drop free mags use the company’s familiar dot matrix panels for marking and identification, disassemble for routine maintenance and are compatible with their GL magwells and plates.

Price? $15.95 direct from Magpul.

P.S. They also stealth added a 12-round G26, as well as $19.95 21-round and $21.95 27-round 9mm extendo Glockazines to their catalog as well for those in the rest of America. Maybe Magpul heard about that whole SHOT Show thing and wanted to be on point. Maybe they just love Freedom.
