Growth of NICS ‘Mental Defectives’ Index Category

The National Instant Check System, NICS, started operation in 1998. The first numbers that I found available for ‘mental defectives’ were contained in an annual report listing numbers available at the end of 2000. The first 89 thousand people on the list were submitted by the Veterans Administration. In the next report, at the end of 2002, about another 60 thousand individuals had been added from state data bases. In 2004, NICS listed the ‘mental defective’ definition as this . . . Mental Defectives/Commitments – Persons who have been adjudicated as a mental defective or have been involuntarily committed to a mental institution or have been deemed incompetent to handle their own affairs.

Jeb! Bush Misremembers Story About NRA Award

Jeb Bush has been telling the world how former NRA President Charleton Heston acknowledged Bush’s contribution to the cause. “You know who you’re lookin’ at here? You’re looking at the guy who won the NRA Statesman of the Year Award,” Bush proclaimed at a town hall in Milford, New Hampshire. “Not the Florida award. The national award.

Building the Perfect SCAR 17

Every gun in my collection has a purpose. I start with a concept of what I want the gun to do and then I build something that is absolutely perfect for that role.
