“I absolutely believe that in this country, if you are 18 years of age you should not be able to buy a rifle. I will support a law that takes that right away,”
Marco Rubio, RINO-FL
In America, you can join the military at 17 with parental permission, you can be drafted at 18, you can vote, buy property, die for your country at 18. It’s bad enough that the handgun age is 21, now they want to do the same for rifles?
Flake wrote in a tweet that he is “working with [Feinstein] on a bipartisan bill that will raise the minimum purchase age for non-military buyers from 18 to 21 — the same age you currently have to be to purchase a handgun.
From Flake, this isn’t surprising, he’s been a RINO for a very long time.
But Rubio? He talks out of both of his mouth:
“The positions I hold on these issues of the Second Amendment, I’ve held since the day I entered office in the city of West Miami as an elected official,” Rubio said. “People buy into my agenda, and I do support the Second Amendment.”

Then again, raising the rifle age to 21 wasn’t on his agenda back then, or maybe it was but he never mentioned it.
Marco is the “son of Cubans who immigrated to the United States in 1956, prior to the rise of Fidel Castro in January 1959.”
While he wants to control our guns, he also wants to open our borders. It runs in the family!
Rubio’s maternal grandfather, Pedro Victor Garcia, initially immigrated legally to the U.S. in 1956, but returned to Cuba to find work in 1959. When he returned to the U.S. in 1962 without a visa, he was detained as an undocumented immigrant, and an immigration judge ordered him to be deported.The immigration officials had a “change of heart” later the same day, the deportation order was not enforced, and Garcia was given a legal status (“parolee”) that allowed him to stay in the U.S. Rubio’s grandfather remained in the U.S. and re-applied for permanent resident status in 1966, following passage of the Cuban Adjustment Act, at which point his residency was approved. In March 2016, the New York Times reported that Garcia was put in a “gray area” of the law that meant he could remain in the U.S. from 1962 to 1966.
Should our guns become undocumented? Is this what little Marco wants?
Aren’t you glad Trump is president? Can you imagine little RINO Rubio leading us?

Michael and Lisa Morrison, owners of Sunrise Tactical Supply, are no longer willing to sell guns:
The distraught owners of the Florida gun shop where school shooter Nikolas Cruz legally bought his AR-15 rifle last year closed their business indefinitely Friday.
“They feel strongly about supporting measures that would require the disclosure of allegations of mental illness to agencies that govern the approval of firearm sales,” the statement continued.
“These measures will be a first step toward taking firearms out of the hands of those who would use them for such reprehensible attacks.”
Cruz, in filling out his ATF paperwork, answered “no” to questions asking if he suffered from mental health issues or was ever institutionalized for treatment.
Cruz was never institutionalized, no judge ever made him an “adjudicated mental deficient,” just seeing a therapist (or not) doesn’t mean you suffer from mental illness and are incapable of owning a gun.
What are the Morrisons afraid of? Being sued? For what? They didn’t violate any laws. Cruz passed his background check because he didn’t have a criminal record. The crap he posted on Facebook, the allegation that he hit his mother, remains just an allegation because the mother never called the police.
When you’re a gun dealer, you’re at the front lines of the 2nd Amendment, and when bad things happen, you’re supposed to fight back, not give in.
The Israelis know a thing or two about terrorism, this is what they did after a school shooting:
When terrorists attacked a school in Maalot in 1974, Israel did not declare every school a gun-free zone. It passed a law mandating armed security in schools, provided weapons training to teachers and today runs frequent active shooter drills. There have been only two school shootings since then, and both have ended with teachers killing the terrorists.
Before anyone mentions the gun restrictions in Israel, read this:
Gun control has been proven to be a dismal failure in Israel. The Israeli Arab communities are rife with illegal weapons, with some police estimates putting the number of unlicensed weapons in the Arab sector as high as 500,000. Think about that for a second: The most heavily guarded borders in the world and a highly professional Shin Bet are still not enough to prevent criminals from obtaining illegal firearms.
Gun control is always a failure, that’s the “conversation” we should be having.
There are all kinds of gun blogs, Combated is one mostly focused on gun cleaning and gun accessories. The have articles about the top gun vises, gun cleaning solvents, and others.
The blog has a cool name that’s easy to pronounce, an interesting logo, and a nice white background with black texts which makes it easy to read.
So far I haven’t seen how they’re monetizing the blog. Since gun bloggers are discriminated against by Google Adsense, many use Amazon Affiliates or Lucky Gunner. I have seen neither so far.
Combated is young, so it doesn’t have a lot of articles for now.
