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

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 $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.”

A video by MolonationTV shows two men dropping fake guns on the street to see how people will respond.
Have you ever wondered how people around you would react if you were to drop your gun on the sidewalk as they walked by? Thanks to MolonationTV, now you can find out.
Two men, one dressed in business casual and the other acting as a thug, alternate dropping fake guns on the street as people walk by. Interested in seeing how people would respond, these pranksters even ask for help picking up their gun. Some individuals reach down to help pick up the gun, including one gentleman who actually picks it up with the barrel pointed towards his head (eesh). Others attempt to casually walk away or just simply take off running in the other direction.
