The topic of smart guns is always a contentious discussion that pits gun control advocates against supporters of the Second Amendment and law enforcement. Smart guns are anything but smart. Gun control advocates claim it is common sense technology and pro Second Amendment forces point out the dangers and flaws in the technology.

The elections are around the corner and some panic buying is happening. This is apparently putting a bigger strain on the NICS system than it can handle. In response to the increased traffic, the FBI NICS made a ‘temporary’ change to how some background checks will be processed.
Could the latest proposed gun legislation be a win for the Second Amendment? Yes, but one that likely is not on your radar. “Because the administration has not moved forward in a timely manner to complete its own ECR Initiative, it is now time for Congress to move forward with legislation complete the ECR and reduce unneeded and burdensome regulations while improving our global competitiveness, create American jobs and enhance national security,” Lawrence G.

Here is a quick synopsis of what happened and the plans and organizations looking to take legal action to right this wrong.
The fight for the Second Amendment is in full swing. It is time to see who will step up and take a stand both on the political front and supporting pro Second Amendment groups. One manufacturer, that has jumped in with both feet, is O.F. Mossberg & Sons.
