Apple iWatch Designer Recreates the 486 Shotgun

Many of us know Marc Newson as the designer for the next generation of Apple products. However, his recent design is even better than the iWatch.

Marc Newson, designer of Apple’s latest iWatch creation, has partnered with Italian firearm manufacturer Beretta to design a more modernized version of Beretta’s 486 side-by-side double barreled shotgun.

Newson was first approached by Gussalli Beretta over three years ago and agreed to take part in designing a 21st century version of the Beretta 486 shotgun. The results are absolutely phenomenal and make gun-enthusiasts like me ask “what iWatch?”

Legally Armed Uber Driver Stops Mass Shooting in Logan Square

An attempted mass shooting ended with no innocent bystanders injured all thanks to a law-abiding Uber driver with a gun, in Chicago of all places!

An armed man began shooting into a crowd of people at Logan Square in Chicago late Friday night. After witnessing everything from his vehicle, an Uber driver with a concealed carry permit immediately responded to what could have been a horrible incident by pulling his own weapon and firing six shots at the gunman.

The gunman was later identified as 22-year-old Everardo Custodio, who is currently being treated for gunshot wounds to the thigh, shin, and lower back at Advocate Illinois Masonic hospital.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the Uber driver was in a parked car nearby when he witnessed Custodio shooting into a crowd of pedestrians at the 2900 block of North Milwaukee Avenue. The driver, who has only been identified as a 47-year-old male from Little Italy, fired six shots at the gunman and remained at the scene until police arrived. He immediately presented his valid concealed carry permit and firearms owner’s identification card.

Veterans Memorial ‘too inappropriate’ for public park

A fallen soldier memorial leaves the Village Council concerned, specifically because the gun in the statue is inappropriate for the park.

Battlefield Cross Too Inappropriate for Park in Michigan [VIDEO]

Friends of American Veterans submitted a proposal to complete their Veterans Memorial at the Central Park in Milford, Michigan. However, the group has not received approval specifically because the monument features an M-16 rifle that is viewed as too inappropriate for the park.

The current plan for the Veteran’s Memorial is to feature an eight-foot-tall battlefield cross, which includes combat boots, an M-16 rifle, a helmet, and dog tags, at the front entrance to the park.

Village manager Christian Wuerth claims that the council understands the meaning of the monument, but doesn’t think it belongs there, as reported by Detroit Free Press.

“There was some concern from a couple of members regarding the specific memorial that’s proposed,” said Wuerth. “Specifically, the gun. They understood the history of (the memorial) and the meaning of it, they just didn’t feel it was appropriate for that specific location.”

SIG Sauer MPX NOW SHIPPING!

The SIG Sauer MPX is now shipping to stores near you.

SIG Sauer has announced that their first civilian production MPX is shipping to distributors and will be available in stores within the next two weeks.
This modernized submachine gun platform has been the talk of the town since its introduction at the 2013 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. Originally, SIG Sauer intended to release the 9mm, .40 S&W, and the .357 SIG, but had to break it down into two versions due to technical difficulties. Rather than further delaying the release, SIG announced that the 9mm variants, otherwise known as ‘Version One’, are in full production and will be shipping to distributors on a daily basis. Version two will consist of releasing the .40 S&W as well as the .357 SIG once the infamous feature of changing calibers in the field has been mastered.

SIG MPX-P (pistol), SIG MPX-P-PSB (pistol, with SBX Pistol Stabilizing Brace) and SIG MPX (short-barrel rifle) will be readily available as semi-automatic options for the civilian market. Additional options will be available to military and law enforcement.

Would You Trade Your 2nd Amendment Rights for A Tax Credit?

Would you trade your 2nd Amendment rights for a $2,000 tax break?

CT Democrat Rep. Rosa DeLauro proposed a new bill on Monday that would offer gun owners a tax break for voluntarily turning in their assault weapons.

Also known as the Support Assault Firearm Elimination and Education of our (SAFER) Streets Act, this bill will be reintroduced by DeLauro next week. However, this is not the first time that DeLauro has introduced the SAFER legislation. Originally this bill was introduced in January 2013, but did not make it through with enough votes from the House Republicans.

“Assault weapons are not about hunting, or even self-defense,” DeLauro said. “There is no reason on earth, other than to kill as many people as possible in as short a time as possible, that anyone needs a gun designed for a battlefield.”
