On Black Friday week the National Shooting Sports Foundation, NSSF, reported that there more than 683,000 background checks performed.  This period includes November 20, 2021 thru November 25, 2021.  This year will end up being the second highest number of background checks on record.

There are a couple of things that are giving the left wingers and their media partners heartburn.  The first of these is the Kyle Rittenhouse verdicts.  They are still stumbling all over trying to twist the story to be anything but what it is, which is the fact that individuals have a right to defend themselves and it was upheld in court.  The second fact that is giving them heartburn is the Waukesha incident where the suspect ran down and killed several people and injured many others.  The left-wing media either doesn’t talk about it or they blame the SUV.  They do not want to hold the driver, Darrell Brooks Jr, responsible.  Brooks was let out on $1,000 bail a couple of days before he murdered six people with his SUV that he was driving.  Brook’s previous convictions include, sex offenses, resisting arrest, strangulation, and running down a woman with a vehicle, and the list goes on and on.  This is what you get with the no bail or low bail laws.  Innocent people get killed by hardened criminals who know how to work the system.  The lame stream media is fishtailing and, in my opinion, are a large part of the problem.

Anti-gun leftist students at Arizona State University are trying to stop Kyle Rittenhouse’s admission to the university.  They, of course, think they are smarter than the jury, they are not.  This is just another example of the bigotry on the left.  As of yet, Rittenhouse has not filed an anti-defamation suit but I wish he would.

The Ninth Circuit Court in San Francisco, California, has upheld California magazine bans.  The decision in Duncan v Bonta stated that the 10 round limit only minimally interferes with a person’s right to self-defense.  Any interference with a person’s right to self-defense is too much.  All the Ninth Circuit Court had to do was look out the window and see 60 to 100 rioters (some armed) destroying shopping areas, to know that 10 rounds are not enough in self-defense in many situations.  This will be appealed to the United States Supreme Court.
