Wheel Guns

NY red flag law ruled unconstitutional

New York’s red flag law has been ruled unconstitutional, knocking down a key gun control measure as the state pushes revamped gun laws through the courts.

New York’s “Extreme Risk Protection Order” law, enacted in 2019, allowed people to request that firearms be temporarily seized from their owners if they’re deemed likely to seriously harm themselves or others.

But in a late December decision, New York Supreme Court ruled the law “does not sufficiently protect a citizen’s rights” and is “hereby dismissed, in its entirety.”

The ruling came as the state’s new gun control framework remains under a flurry of litigation after being overturned by a landmark Supreme Court ruling over the summer, as reported by the New York Times.

Homeowner shoots intruder and holds him at gunpoint until deputies arrive, TX cops say

Kaitlyn Alanis
Deputies responding to an attempted burglary found a man shot on the sidewalk outside a Texas home while the homeowner held him at gunpoint, authorities said.

The homeowner’s gun was taken away, and first responders treated the man with a gunshot wound to the upper part of his right leg, according to a Jan. 4 news release from the Bosque County Sheriff’s Office. He was then rushed to a hospital in an ambulance.

“The homeowner stated that the intruder rammed his vehicle through the locked gate, accessing the property, and approached the residence front door, aggressively attempting to break into the residence,” deputies said, adding that evidence backed up the homeowner’s statement to authorities.

A police officer shot a suspect during a foot pursuit Wednesday afternoon in Northern California, authorities said.

At least one officer with the Grass Valley Police Department discharged their weapon, striking a pursuit subject who was then taken to a hospital in Roseville. Their condition at the hospital was not known, police wrote Wednesday evening.

The incident began shortly after 4:15 p.m. as a possible theft reported in the 400 block of French Avenue, the Police Department said in a news release.

Arriving officers heard gunfire in the area and, while investigating, “became engaged in a foot pursuit with a subject that ended with at least one officer discharging their weapon,” the department wrote. Officers provided medical treatment at the scene before an ambulance arrived, according to the news release.

I’ll make the assumption the gentleman lost this particular footrace. Tough to beat close to 1200 feet per second after all. Thanks again, Gun Bunny.

Morning Schadenfreude. Put beverages down and return your service trays and seatbacks to their upright and locked positions.

Surveillance video catches two men setting fire to an immigration services building in Bakersfield. The video shows the two men catching on fire themselves after starting the fire. Two different cameras caught the incident. Firefighters arrived moments later and extinguished the fire, limiting the damage to the garage of the building.

“When you are running down the street on fire, people will get out of your way!”

One wonders what compelled the little firebug to target an immigration services building. I bet there is more to follow on that.


Gun control means hitting your target. I have been a victim of false accusations. It is not fun.

“…upper part of his right leg,” Homeowner shoulda aimed a little more to the left.

A trifecta of perps “hotfooting” today. 2 of them…literally. We may see this one again.

Lubs me a nice wheelie. Keeps their heads down until one can bring up the heavies.

“…a lightweight snubby…” “…just happens to be round in the in the middle.” No need to be insulting.

I hope the fire bugs were caught. I wonder if they are illegal aliens to boot.


A wheel gun is a real gun.

My favs are in .357 Mag using JHP – they’ll make an attacker notice when they’ve been shot. Briefly.

Been thinking about a heavy duty wheel gun in 44Mag for when I go camping in the Rockies. Yeah, bear country. I don’t think even a 45ACP would do more then tickle one of those walking floor rugs. Need to start saving my pennies.
