North Carolina county puts AR-15s in every school :: 08/08/2022

Most of the time when we write about armed school staff, we’re covering a school district that has trained and vetted employees who have volunteered to carry a firearm while on the job. In Madison County, North Carolina, however, the county sheriff has put a new twist on the idea of having an armed response to an active shooter threat: putting AR-15s and gun safes in every school building.

Portland mayor admits homicides have increased 200% over last year :: 08/07/2022

One of the bitter ironies in the gun control debate is playing out right now in Oregon, where years of progressive policies have led to a huge spike in shootings and homicides and gun control activists have successfully used that staggering rise in violent crime to put a voter referendum on the ballot this year promising increased public safety at the expense of the right of self-defense; outlawing the sale, transfer, and possession (in most circumstances) of “large capacity” magazines, imposing a new “permit-to-purchase” requirement on all firearms, and creating a state-run database of all permit holders.

SAF’s 2022 Alternative Mass Media conference coming up :: 08/07/2022

Trying to exist in a world that’s hostile towards firearms, firearm related topics, and the Second Amendment is challenging. It’s not that every person is “against” what I’ll label as “us”, with just around half of all American households having firearms in them, but as I noted recently to a friend, the establishment wants it this way. With that comes access to information, media, and further, resources for those that create content like you’re reading right now. A number of years ago, content creator and now Deputy Director of New Media over at the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), Paul Lathorp started an event tailored to serving Second Amendment linked media types called the Alternative Mass Media Conference, or AMM-Con. AMM-Con 2022 is right around the corner, on September 30th and will be held at The Westin Dallas Fort Worth Airport, 4545 West John Carpenter Freeway, Irving, TX 75063.

Law-abiding gun owners will not harm you. But criminals will :: 08/06/2022

There have been innumerable debates on gun ownership. These discussions generally address two critical factors: gun violence in inner cities and mass shootings. As a result, some Americans have called for the removal of certain weapons, such as the AR-15, from civilian ownership, and the limitation of magazines to 10 rounds as a means to combat these two problems. While I understand the desire to act quickly, we should not act in a way that makes villains of law-abiding gun owners who only wish to protect themselves and their families while simultaneously giving criminals the upper hand in their pursuit of destruction.

AP declares it's "open season" on gun laws :: 08/05/2022

Anti-gun bias in the media is nothing new, but in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision in NYSPRA v. Bruen it’s getting ramped up to new heights. The latest example? An Associated Press story that seems saturated with a negative viewpoint towards the right to keep and bear arms, even if the authors never explicitly come out and say so.

ATF agent reportedly took pics of records with private phone :: 08/05/2022

There is always going to be some degree of tension between the ATF and gun owners. The truth of the matter is that we don’t trust most of them, at a minimum, and we recognize they’d happily strip us of our right to keep and bear arms if it were up to them.

Atlanta news station: Controversial GA law didn't spike shootings :: 08/05/2022

Democrats Don't Care Whether Banning 'Assault Weapons' Is Constitutional :: 08/05/2022

A week before the House of Representatives approved a ban on "assault weapons," a federal judge in Denver explained why such laws are unlikely to pass constitutional muster. House Democrats either were not paying attention or did not care, because they view the Second Amendment as an outmoded provision that imposes no meaningful limits on gun control.

Idiot crooks use stolen credit cards to buy guns online :: 08/04/2022

For ages, we’ve heard all about how you can buy guns online. Anti-gun politicians try and make it sound as simple as placing an order on Amazon, and maybe they actually believe that to be the case.

United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- Say this for Representative Jerry Nadler (D-NY), he may be an enemy of our rights, but some enemies can actually be extremely helpful for our cause. During a mark-up for HR 1808, the assault weapons ban that passed with the help of two Republicans (five Democrats voted against it), he made remarks that will come back to bite him in court.

In new lawsuit, gun control group claims semi-automatic rifles should be classified as machine guns :: 08/03/2022
