January 16, 2014 | Posted in Community, News | By

In Maryland, target shooting-related spending contributed $168,132,421 to the state’s economy and supported 1,505 jobs.

Retail sales related to target shooting account for nearly $10 billion, with rifle and handgun shooting being the leading contributors, followed by shotgun and muzzleloader shooting. California and Texas are the top two states ranked by retail sales.

Combining data from Target Shooting in America and Hunting in America shows that target shooters and hunters together poured more than $110 billion into the nation’s economy, fueling more than 866,000 jobs.

Target shooters ($8.2 billion) and hunters ($8.4 billion) spend nearly equal amounts on equipment common to both pursuits, such as firearms, ammunition and accessories. Hunters spend more overall than target shooters when factors such as fuel, food, lodging and transportation are included.

BRASILIA, Brazil (AFP)

– More than one million people were murdered in Brazil between 1980 and 2011, making it the world’s seventh most violent country, a survey showed Thursday.

In 2011, Brazil, now home to 194 million people, recorded 51,198 homicides, ranked seventh among the world’s most violent nations after El Salvador, the US Virgin Islands, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Colombia and Guatemala.

 

Baltimore Comic Con

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – September 4, 2013 – The inaugural All-Star Baltimore Comic-Con Reception will take place on Friday, September 6, 2013 at 8:00 pm, and we’re pleased to announce a late addition to the all-star list of guests!!

 Comics legend Neal Adams will join our star-studded evening, adding his years of industry experience and unique talent to what is sure to be a fascinating conversation. Neal has recently worked at Marvel Comics, providing covers for First X-Men, and has been inducted into the Eisner Awards’ Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 1998, and the Harvey Awards’ Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1999.

 Join us for this intimate evening, which is unlike anything else the rest of the weekend has to offer! On Saturday and Sunday, thousands of comic book fans will be meeting these creators in the hall. Ticket holders to THIS event will be able to enjoy the company of these creators in a cocktail party setting.

 

Plaintiffs Wanted in Maryland

 SB 281, the so-called “Firearm Safety Act of 2013,” goes into effect on October 1, 2013. We worked to bring your views before the General Assembly and we are working with the Maryland State Police on the Act’s implementation, but it has become increasingly clear that the only possible way to protect our Second Amendment rights is in the courts. Accordingly, we here at AGC will participate in the filing of a lawsuit against SB 281.

 If you are interested in participating and are currently eligible to receive and possess firearms in Maryland, please let us know.

 We are looking for would-be handgun purchasers (preferably first-time handgun purchasers) who want to purchase a handgun for home defense. We also are looking for individuals who may want to purchase the rifles or magazines banned by the Act for specific reasons such as advanced age, or physical impairment.

 

 

Ed Reilly-  talks about insuring our personal property, homes and guns properly.

Al Jazeera America

AlJazerra America

September 5, 2013 | Posted in black man with a gun podcast, News | By

New Media Source

I’ve learned that the boogeyman is not automatically Arab, Islamic or armed. It’s really the one that is trying to deny you your life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And that could be anyone. Some are even on TV.

Speaking of TV; have you heard about the new Al-Jazeera news show? They are new company headquartered in New York with some of the best and brightest journalist from all over. They are actually competing with CNN.

If you can get over the anti-Islamic thing we have, you might admit a little competition is a good thing. That is American. It’s not un-American to be proud of your heritage. In this post 9/11 world we are still jaded but Al-Jazeera is going for it. I think the word itself means, “island” or “Arab peninsula.”

The ratings are down right now on their new show but I don’t think it’s from content.

Rick Ector and I were mentioned in an article recently. I thought the reporter was a typical New Yorker. Not a bad thing, just that he was uninitiated on the whole gun issue but listened. I hope I opened his mind though to try our sport.

http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2013/9/1/for-some-blacks-guncontroldebateraisesechoesofsegregatedpast.html

Beware of our prejudices and stereotypes of Americans of Arab decent and the people that promote it.

There are still extremist that hide behind every religion. More on that later. For right now, give them a shot and see where it goes.
