Ammo Land Endorses Anthony P Colandro for NRA Board of Directors

Time for Changes at National Rifle Association Read more: Under Creative Commons License: Attribution Follow us: @Ammoland on Twitter | Ammoland on Facebook USA – -( Bloomberg's propaganda mill The Trace, and Mother Jones magazine, have been working overtime together to investigate NRA's activities, digging up as much dirt as they can find, and doing their best to keep the media rumor mill abuzz with negative National Rifle Association news. Obviously both of these “news” outlets are extremely anti-rights and anti-NRA, and they are painting everything they can find in the worst possible light, but unfortunately, this is not “fake news.” The smoke our enemies have been pointing at is coming from real fires within the organization, and it's getting worse. The financial woes have prompted an austerity campaign on Waples Mill Road, laying off a number of employees, cutting back programs, and even doing away with coffee service for the staff. Meanwhile, the guy wielding the hatchet, and the rest of the NRA executive staff, are taking home exorbitant paychecks of a half-million to almost a million-and-a-half dollars a year, and crony parasites are sucking out tens of millions more, while the organization is operating millions of dollars in the red. The basic financial problems will probably be rectified in the short-term by the insatiable avarice of the new Democrat-controlled House of Representatives. Now that Nancy Pelosi and her anti-rights zealots have actively begun pushing new gun control legislation, Bob and Sally Gunowner will again be digging into their pockets to send in another twenty bucks to the NRA, and the organization's finances will soon appear to be back on reasonably solid ground. But the core problems won't go away so easily. An [...]

U.S. COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE THIRD CIRCUIT WANTS DO-OVER ARGUMENT ON MAG BAN APPEAL November 15, 2018. Even though counsel for both sides thoroughly argued the magazine ban appeal before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit yesterday, in a highly unusual event the Court contacted counsel late yesterday and requested re-argument of the exact same appeal on Tuesday, November 20 at 10 AM in Philadelphia. There was apparently a problem with the official recording of yesterday's oral argument, and a new hearing is needed so it can be properly recorded. Gun owners are invited to attend the do-over oral argument before the Third Circuit. The address is: James A.

Chez les pro-armes du New Jersey Patron de Gun for Hire, Anthony Colandro est un infatigable défenseur du deuxième amendement, qui s’insurge contre la «diabolisation» des détenteurs d’armes à feu. A la veille des «midterms», il attaque les démocrates… et Donald Trump. Anthony Colandro ne tient pas en place. Dans son royaume de Gun for Hire, «le seul stand de tir familial au monde», clame son site internet, ce colosse à l’œil qui frise salue des clients, taquine ses employés et s’assure trois fois que son interlocutrice a bien compris qu’elle pouvait se servir dans le frigo de sa «VIP Room». Il a un bagout d’enfer. Nous sommes dans le New Jersey, à Woodland Park, en plein Trumpland. Pas bien loin de Paterson, ville qui se distingue par la multiplication de crimes sordides. Ici, des garages et des fast-foods jouxtent le stand de tir. Un logo fait pour choquer Les armes, c’est son univers. Anthony Colandro est membre de la NRA, le puissant lobby pro-armes. Il siège au sein de trois de ses comités. Il a voté pour Trump en 2016, défend bec et ongles le deuxième amendement de la Constitution qui stipule que tout Américain a le droit de posséder une arme, et anime sa propre petite radio, «la voix des 1 million de propriétaires d’armes dans le New Jersey». Sur son biceps gauche, il a tatoué le nom de son entreprise. Provocateur, il est ravi que son logo, avec le «i» qui s’écroule dans une flaque de sang, puisse choquer: «Au moins, tout le monde s’en rappelle!» Supprimer les armes ne changera rien: la Prohibition n’a pas empêché la vente et la consommation d’alcool.

Shooting range seeks to make guns ‘mainstream’

Click to watch video. As the gun control debate continues after the shooting in Las Vegas, Anthony Colandro at Gun for Hire in Woodland Park is looking for new customers. Yana Kolubelova had a choice to make. She had a day off from her nurse’s job at a New York hospital. So did three fellow nurses — two women and a man. What to do? Kolubelova, 23, of Brooklyn, considered driving with her friends to a winery on Long Island. But then, she embraced another destination: a single-story brick building just off Route 46 in Woodland Park, flanked by a car wash and an auto body shop, and across McBride Avenue from a gas station and a bank. A shooting range. Kolubelova and her friends spent several hours on a recent afternoon trying their hand — and trigger fingers — at firing a variety of guns, including an AR-15, the military-style rifle used by numerous mass shooters, among them Stephen Paddock, who killed nearly 60 people at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas last Sunday. “Today, it was either a vineyard or this,” Kolubelova said. “We picked this.” As the nation grapples with the thorny question of how, or whether, to effectively control the spread of firearms in the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, proponents of gun rights have been pressing forward with a subtle but meticulous campaign to make guns as much a part of everyday life as cars and cellphones. This campaign is plainly visible in state legislatures, where advocates are pushing for laws to allow private citizens to carry guns in malls and day care centers, on college campuses and in churches. But it is also [...]

Rachel Maddow, storyteller and gun lover

Rachel Maddow, storyteller and gun lover There's rarely any doubt where Rachel Maddow stands on an issue. She's a cable news headliner, and Rita Braver has been watching her in action ... both on the air, and off: "This is a beautiful gun." So maybe you wouldn't expect the woman wielding the Colt .45 pistol or the AR-15 rifle to be unabashedly left-leaning Rachel Maddow. "Like, I'm a real liberal, even on, like, gun safety and gun control issues," said Maddow. "That said, I think that shooting is fun, and I think that shooting ranges are an excellent place to both learn about guns and to freak your friends out!" Rachel Maddow with correspondent Rita Braver. Indeed, as the host of her own MSNBC show, Maddow delights in doing the unexpected. For example, she's credited as one of the first national journalists to spotlight the lead in drinking water crisis in Flint, Michigan -- a story about which she said "it is starting to become inconceivable that no one has been jailed or impeached or recalled from office." Spooling out the story, as she usually does, in a long, impassioned monologue... "The kids of Flint, Mich., have been poisoned by a policy decision." Her goal: To make you REALLY listen. "Storytelling is fun for me," she explained. "But I also think when you're telling a good story, it sinks in more. That's a more influential way to communicate information rather than just reading the news." "So those jeans ... what you're wearing underneath [the desk]?" "It's like a mullet: it's business upstairs, party downstairs." And of course, there's the fact that in 2008 she became the first openly-gay American to host a national news [...]

Article From It seemed like such a great idea at the time. A nationally respected engineering university in downtown Newark set out to design a safer gun with high-tech electronic locks to prevent it from being fired by a thief or a child who found it accidentally. In Trenton, the governor even signed a law ordering New Jersey’s firearms dealers to sell only so-called smart guns once the first one hit the market. But that was 2002. Much has changed since then — some say, for the worse. The New Jersey mandate, known as the Childproof Handgun Law, is now considered a well-meaning but misguided failure that sparked a vigorous campaign by gun-rights proponents to block the sale of “smart” firearms with safety locks. The law’s Democratic supporters announced this month they want to revamp it. Meanwhile, smart guns are not available in New Jersey — or anywhere else in America — even though consumer studies suggest that as many as two-thirds of gun owners would opt for high-tech locking systems on their firearms if they were reliable. And in Newark, an ambitious, decade-long research project at the New Jersey Institute of Technology to develop just such a reliable electronic safety lock for firearms has been shut down. “The project is dead,” said Donald H. Sebastian, the NJIT administrator who emerged as one of America’s most vocal proponents of smart-gun research — and, as a result, a target of gun-rights advocates who argued NJIT was part of a conspiracy to promote more control over firearms. How did this happen? How could a project that did not aim to limit guns so much as to make them safer fall so flat with gun owners? There are many [...]

I loved every word I read.

I just read an article on your range by a Bethany Mandel and I loved every word I read. I owe my wife a trip to her hometown of Philadelphia PA sometime and if I can work it in I would love to visit your range and do a little shooting. That being said if you ever make it out to my neck of the woods, Roscoe Texas you are absolutely welcome to come shoot with me. Thank you for what you are doing and keep up the fire.

HOW ONE JERSEY GUY BREAKS STEREOTYPES ON GUNS IN A DEEP BLUE STATE Recently, I wrote for the New York Post about an experience at a local gun range in my home state of New Jersey. In the piece, I noted the diverse participants learning with me in a class on basic pistol safety and classes. I am a stay-at-home mother, and in the class alongside me were three men interested in becoming law enforcement officers and an optometrist. Walking into the range, I noticed men, women, teens and even children walking around ready to shoot. This is not your average shooting range, which, I learned, is due to the fact that its owner is anything but average. Anthony Colandro is a 6-foot-2-inch, 230-pound Italian-American. So far, he fits the profile for a gun enthusiast, but his physical attributes are where it ends. Colandro doesn’t consider himself a Republican or a Democrat, but a political free agent. He’s a self-described health nut, dedicated to maintaining good nutrition and rigorous exercise. Colandro’s determination in the gym and in the kitchen has helped him lose over 160 pounds while also working through a painful divorce. That same determination helped him open a gun range in Northern New Jersey, one of the bluest parts of the country. Colandro started his own business as a firearms trainer in 1992 after receiving certification from the National Rifle Association. He would travel around the tri-state area, training people in the safe use of guns from as far south as Philadelphia to as far north as Westchester. In that time, he became familiar with every single gun range in the area, its positive attributes and, in his mind, many of the negatives. [...]
