House Democrats Refuse to Allow Steve Scalise to Testify at ‘Gun Violence’ Hearing

Thu, 02/07/2019 - 21:47

U.S. House Democrats on Wednesday barred Republican Rep. Steve Scalise from testifying at a hearing meant to address “gun violence” in the United States. As a victim of gun-related crime and the Republican House Whip, Scalise would normally have been allowed to testify at a congressional hearing so pertinent to his expertise and life experience. Instead, House Democrats denied his request to speak, claiming that too many members of Congress had already requested to speak.

H&P Manufacturing Admits They Have the Ugliest Suppressor and They are Proud of It – SHOT Show 2019

Wed, 02/06/2019 - 23:34

One reason that the Ugly Suppressor is so cool is because the gasses are not designed to stay trapped within the suppressor itself. Instead, the gasses flow through an elongated path which allow them to cool without generating extra back pressure. This suppressor design is perfect for semi-auto guns because the ejection speed is not affected by a pressure spike.
