Matthew McConaughey applauds President Joe Biden’s gun control bill

Matthew McConaughey has applauded US President Joe Biden’s new gun control bill as a “step in the right direction” just weeks after a deadly school shooting in the actor’s hometown.

The Oscar-winner has been speaking out on America’s gun control issues in the aftermath of the killing of 19 kids and two teachers at a school Uvalde, Texas in May – and on Saturday (25.06.22) President Biden introduced the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act to help end gun violence.

Matthew has now praised the president for taking a big step forward, writing in a post on Instagram: “For the first time in 28 years, a meaningful piece of legislation has passed that can usher in a new era of building an American culture of gun responsibility.

“This bill invests in mental health and protest responsible, law-abiding Americans’ Second Amendment rights, due process, and the rule of law. For responsible gun owners, this bill does not take your guns away or restrict your access to fire arms …

“This bill will save innocent lives by keeping guns out of the law breaking and irresponsible hands that are trying to hijack the Second Amendment.”

The actor then added: “While this bill isn’t perfect, it is a shining example of a great American potential and political virtue: the act of compromise and validating an opposing viewpoint …

“Now that the President has signed this bill into law, I want to remind all of us Americans that we cannot become complacent and wait on a piece of legislation to solve our problems … We each have a duty yo protect our freedom and our rights …

“The choice, as gun owners, gun show organizers, and firearms manufacturers to bear, show and sell arms responsibly.”

Matthew concluded: “Our government took a step in the right direction. Now it’s time for us to remind them AND ourselves what the best of our country is AND can be.”

Prsident Biden’ signed the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act to help strengthen weapons regulation and provide funding for mental health support and anti-violence programs.

He said at the time: “I’m about to sign into law a bipartisan gun safety legislation. And time is of the essence. Lives will be saved.”

According to a White House briefing, the bill enhances “certain restrictions and penalties on firearms purchases” while it also promotes safety practices in schools as well as providing funding for mental health and anti-violences causes.

N.J. gun package continues advancing as Supreme Court guts concealed carry laws

N.J. gun package continues advancing as Supreme Court guts concealed carry laws

Senate vote on gun bills likely next week

By Joey FoxJune 23 2022 4:36 pm

Shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down New York’s concealed carry restrictions this morning, the New Jersey Legislature continued taking steps in the opposite direction, with two committees passing a series of bills further strengthening the state’s gun laws.

Most importantly, the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee approved seven gun bills backed by Gov. Phil Murphy, clearing them for a possible vote next Monday. (An eighth bill had already passed the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.) Six bills were also passed by the Assembly Appropriations Committee today, all of which previously came before the Assembly Judiciary Committee just yesterday.

If signed into law, the bills would add new requirements for firearm purchaser identification cards (FPICs), regulate ammunition sales, ban most .50 caliber weapons, and many other things; see the bottom of this story for full details on every bill.

Looming over the day’s proceedings was the Supreme Court’s ruling, which will undoubtedly have a dramatic impact on New Jersey’s existing laws. Precise details aren’t entirely clear yet, but the ruling likely nixes many of New Jersey’s concealed-carry restrictions, which are similar to New York’s, and may open up the state’s other gun laws – including the bills under discussion now – to further legal action.

Gov. Phil Murphy, whose administration has helped shape New Jersey into the state with the second-strictest gun regulations in the nation, blasted the court’s decision in a statement and said his administration is still figuring out what its effects on New Jersey will be.

“Let there be no mistake – this dangerous decision will make America a less safe country,” he said. “Anticipating this decision, my administration has been closely reviewing options we believe are still available to us regarding who can carry concealed weapons and where they can carry them. We are carefully reviewing the court’s language and will work to ensure that our gun safety laws are as strong as possible while remaining consistent with this tragic ruling.”

Notably, however, the governor stopped short of calling on the legislature to convene a special session this summer, which New York Gov. Kathy Hochul has said she may do.

Responding to last month’s mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde, Murphy had called for the legislature to pass his third package of gun control legislation, which he first introduced in April 2021 and which had become stalled in the legislature.

This week finally represented a dam break, with most of the governor’s bills coming up before committees in both chambers. It’s the Senate committee hearing that’s the real breakthrough; a similar package died in the Senate last legislative session under former Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-West Deptford), and new Senate President Nick Scutari (D-Linden) was circumspect on the bill package’s future as recently as last Thursday.

“We’re looking at them bill by bill, making sure that we bring commonsense gun solutions to the people of New Jersey, and to ensure the bills that we pass could have an impact on gun violence,” Scutari said at the time.

So far, the bills have passed almost entirely on party-line votes; no Democrat has yet voted no or abstained on any bill. One bill increasing criminal penalties for the manufacture and transportation of ghost guns has passed unanimously in both chambers’ committees, and State Sen. Declan O’Scanlon (R-Little Silver) also voted in favor of a second bill requiring FPICs for those moving to New Jersey from out of state.

If the bills reach Murphy’s desk, he is very likely to sign them, though not all are technically part of his original eight-bill package. Of the nine gun bills that have come before a committee in the last two days, four are from the governor’s package, three are updated versions of his initial bills, and two are entirely new.

Just as they did yesterday, a number of gun rights advocates and lobbyists testified against the bills in committee today – among them State Sen. Ed Durr (R-Logan), who has become a prominent gun proponent in state government since he took office earlier this year.

“New Jersey already has gun laws that are among the most restrictive in the entire nation,” Durr said. “These new proposals will only impact law-abiding citizens who will suffer a further erosion of their rights and who will find themselves charged for technical violations of the law.”

“I’ve worked tirelessly with my colleagues on trying to create a balanced approach to this legislation,” responded Scutari, who was present for the first few minutes of the Senate committee hearing today. “Gun violence is not a simple problem… There are a lot of safety measures that we do need to continue to take – and I’m a gun owner.”

While Scutari appears committed to pushing for most of the governor’s gun package, two bills have been left behind. One that would raise the age for obtaining an FPIC from 18 to 21 cleared the Assembly Judiciary Committee yesterday but wasn’t posted in the Senate today; another that would add safe storage requirements for firearms hasn’t come up for a vote in any committee.

According to State Sen. Joe Cryan (D-Union), the lead sponsor on both dropped bills and a perennial advocate for gun control in the legislature, neither has the support necessary to pass with the rest of the package next week.

“In the consensus that is the New Jersey Legislature, there’s not enough votes to pass those,” he said. “As a result of that, they won’t be part of this package.”

Asked about next steps following the decision from the Supreme Court, Cryan said that he intends to pursue legislation to push back against the ruling and maintain New Jersey’s restrictions.

“I certainly hope we pass bills here, and I hope we do it sooner than later,” he said. “I’m certainly going to try to write one that ultimately ends up getting back to the court so that maybe, instead of a Mitch McConnell America, we can have a commonsense America.”

With our 149th Annual Meeting scheduled for next month in Nashville, we realize many NRA members and meeting guests have questions about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the potential impact on our convention.

We have been closely monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Tennessee Department of Health.  In fact, earlier today, a state of emergency was declared in Tennessee.  

Therefore, we have reluctantly decided to cancel this year’s NRA Annual Meeting, planned for April 16 – 19 in Nashville. This applies to all events and scheduled programs, including the NRA-ILA Forum. We sincerely regret the need for this action, particularly for our many loyal members who join us for this annual celebration of the NRA and our constitutional freedoms.  Details regarding a rescheduled NRA Members’ Meeting will be forthcoming.

Under the direction of NRA President Carolyn Meadows, the NRA Board of Directors is working with the Office of the Secretary in relation to board elections, meetings, and the like.  

Please know that we did not reach this decision lightly. We were ultimately guided by our responsibility to help ensure the safety and well-being of our NRA members, guests, and surrounding community.  

Please coordinate directly with airlines or others who have assisted with your travel arrangements. Most companies have announced plans to accommodate travelers dealing with event cancellations.    

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Gun Control May be Wasting Away, But Not Because of COVID

Gun Control May be Wasting Away, But Not Because of COVID

Unpacking this “but for COVID” assertion more closely indicates that these gun control initiatives were not exactly slated for the slam-dunk success that their proponents would have voters believe.

In Florida, an NRA-supported challenge succeeded in getting a misleading gun ban kicked off the ballot. Anti-gun group Ban Assault Weapons Now (BAWN), a project of several gun control groups including the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and David Hogg’s March For Our Lives, had attempted to place the gun ban on the ballot in 2020, but failed to obtain the required signatures. Having secured roughly 175,000 signatures, in recent months the group’s goals shifted to placing the measure on the 2022 ballot. With the Florida Supreme Court’s decision, gun control advocates will have to start the ballot measure procedure over from scratch if they intend to continue this attack on Floridians’ Second Amendment rights.

The Oklahoma ballot initiative, State Question No. 809 to rescind the state’s constitutional carry law, was already going nowhere fast. The campaign to undo the 2019 law had bounced from failure to failure before being halted by a court decision on June 23. In that ruling, a nine-judge panel of the Oklahoma Supreme Court unanimously concluded that the language of SQ 809 was inaccurate, misleading, and legally insufficient. SQ 809 was declared invalid and ordered removed from the November 3, 2020 ballot.

Rep. Jason Lowe (D-Oklahoma City), a primary sponsor of SQ 809, is quoted as saying that, “if the pandemic hadn’t happened, he’d have amended the language and gotten the measure in front of voters in November.” This is extremely doubtful. Rep. Lowe’s earlier referendum petition on the carry law (State Question No. 803) was dismissed by a court in October 2019 for being far short of the signature threshold needed to get SQ 803 on the ballot. A news article describing the fallout of the June 23 court decision acknowledged that the problem was timing. Lowe’s campaign to repeal the carry law would “not be able to start collecting signatures immediately,” and was “unlikely to have enough time to collect and turn in 178,958 signatures before the secretary of state’s Aug. 24 deadline for petitions to qualify for the November ballot.”

Timing was also the critical issue in Ohio. The push for an initiative petition demanding so-called “universal background checks” began in 2016, although the petition itself was not filed until three years later. The Ohio Attorney General rejected the petition summary because it was not “a fair and truthful statement” of the law being proposed. A new petition was submitted in July 2019, with the goal of collecting enough signatures to get the measure on the 2020 ballot. By pre-COVID December, though, the proponents announced they were pushing the timing back, with a new target ballot date in 2021. None of these delays can be due to pandemic-based stay-home orders.

The Oregon initiatives are not a straightforward case of pandemic postponement, either. In 2018, Initiative Petition 43, to impose a ban on commonly owned semi-automatic firearms and standard capacity magazines, was invalidated by the Oregon Supreme Court in a lawsuit brought by the NRA and other petitioners. Backers of the initiative opted to drop their efforts to get the measure on the 2018 ballot and to focus, instead, on the 2020 election. The sponsors of IP 43 subsequently brought forward three gun control initiative petitions, IP 6061, and 62. Although the NRA again challenged the ballot title language, after some changes to the language the Oregon Supreme Court approved the ballot titles in April. A news article states the petitioners had originally planned to “select one petition to gather signatures for after proposal language has been approved,” but no signatures had been submitted for any of these petitions to qualify for the 2020 ballot.

The narrative favored by gun control advocates is that their measures represent the views of the overwhelming majority of voters (assertions that “81 percent of voters in Oklahoma oppose permitless carry,” and “90% of Ohioans support background checks,” for example).

Before COVID provided an excuse for the failure of these measures to get on the ballot, many similar initiatives that were voted on were either rejected outright or passed by much smaller margins than would be expected given the claims of overwhelming support. A 2016 ballot initiative for universal background checks in Nevada was approved by just 50.45% of voters (but once passed, was found to be unenforceable as written). Question 3, a background check initiative in Maine that year, was rejected by voters.

The fact that initiatives on issues other than increased burdens on gun owners will be voted on in OklahomaOregon and across America this November undermines the argument that the pandemic has wiped out gun control initiatives in 2020. A more plausible explanation is that now, with gun sales continuing to break records and an unprecedented number of first-time gun owners, Americans are less interested than ever in ineffectual restrictions on rights and freedoms.

Today News about GUNS-Florida, NRA square off over 2018 gun law-Sept 17, 2020

TALLAHASSEE —In a legal fight that started after the 2018 mass shooting at a Parkland high school, attorneys for the state and the National Rifle Association this month detailed dueling arguments about the constitutionality of a Florida law that prevents people under age 21 from buying guns.

The two sides filed motions for summary judgment as they try to sway Chief U.S. District Judge Mark Walker, with gun-control groups also submitting briefs last week in support of the law.

After 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland in 2018, the Legislature and then-Gov. Rick Scott approved a wide-ranging measure that includes the ban on gun purchases by people under 21. The NRA quickly challenged the ban and contended in its motion this month that the law violates Second Amendment and equal-protection rights.

“While Florida has an interest in promoting public safety, particularly in schools, it cannot show that the ban is the least restrictive means to advance that interest. Nor could any ban be,” NRA lawyers wrote in their Sept. 3 motion. “The ban infringes the right of all 18-to-20-year-olds to purchase firearms for the exercise of their Second Amendment rights, even for self-defense in the home. The ban does not just limit the right, it obliterates it. The ban could not possibly be the least restrictive alternative. Nor is there evidence in the record that the Legislature considered the availability of less restrictive alternatives.”

But attorneys for the state argued that people who are age 18 to 20 still have the right to possess guns if, for example, they receive the weapons from their parents. Also, the state said people age 18 to 20 are a “particularly high-risk group” and pointed to scientific evidence about impulsive and risky behavior.

“Empirical evidence bears out that because 18-to-20-year-olds are uniquely likely to engage in impulsive, emotional, and risky behaviors that offer immediate or short-term rewards, drawing the line for legal purchase of firearms at 21 is a reasonable method of addressing the Legislature’s public safety concerns,” the state’s Sept. 3 motion said.

Walker has scheduled a jury trial to start Jan. 11, according to a court docket. But if he grants summary judgment to either side, it would short-circuit the need for a full trial.

Federal law prevents licensed firearm dealers from selling handguns to people under age 21, but the Florida law goes further by banning all gun purchases by people in that age group, according to court documents.

The Republican-dominated Legislature scrambled to act after 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz was accused of using a semi-automatic weapon to kill 17 students and faculty members and injure 17 others at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, his former high school. Cruz continues to await trial on murder charges.

The NRA filed the lawsuit immediately after the gun-purchase ban passed, but the case has moved slowly, at least in part because of a dispute about an NRA attempt to allow two opponents of the law to participate in the case anonymously — an idea that ultimately was dropped. A named plaintiff, Radford Fant, joined the case.

Walker in May rejected a state request to dismiss the case. He made clear that he was not ruling on the NRA’s underlying arguments that the law is unconstitutional, only that the case should be allowed to move forward.

While the NRA has fought the law, gun-control groups have lined up with the state. Those groups filed two friend-of-the-court briefs last week contending that the law should be upheld.

Comparing the Glock 43x to the Glock 43: In-Depth Analysis-MTR has holsters for them

MTR Custom Leather scored big time and got our hands on the all new Glock 43x and Glock 48 before they were released, which gave us the ability to get our hands on them and have holsters ready well before launch! We are excited to have a full lineup of holsters available for all of the SlimLine Glocks including the 43x:

A-2 Dual Carry

A-3A Tuckable Adversary

B-1A Slimline Deluxe Pancake Belt Slide

A-8 Paddle Holster

(Every holster from shoulder rigs, ankles rigs IWB, OWB can be made for the Glock 43X)


The Glock 43x not only features front cocking serrations but also features an nPVD finish vs the standard Gen5 nDLC finish found on the Glock 43. The verdict is out as to how the nPVD will stand up vs. the nDLC but hey, at least it looks nice…



The Glock 43x has a height of 5.04″ vs the Glock 43 that features a height of 4.25″.
The change gives the shooter more grip length which allows for a more full grip and better control of the pistol.


The extended height allows another advantage over the Glock 43 which is magazine capacity. The Glock 43 comes with a flush 6 round magazine while the 43x holds 4 additional rounds bringing you up to 10 rounds with a flush magazine. When it comes to magazine capacity bigger is almost always better and the 43x is certainly delivering with the additional 4 rounds.

Many customers are expecting that Glock will be releasing an extended or higher capacity magazine in the future, but there is nothing official from Glock at this time.
