The majority, in an opinion by Judge Shwartz and joined by Judge Greenaway, both appointed by President Obama, held that the ban did not violate the Second Amendment because it reasonably advanced the State’s interest in reducing mass shootings without severely burdening the rights of law-abiding citizens.

The Hill: Incoming Dems to Push for ‘Universal Background Checks’

Still thinking your Second Amendment rights are safe just because President Trump is in the White House? House Democrats will take control next month, and have their sights focused on your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. The Hill is reporting that Democrats “plan to push a bill to require a background check for every gun sale in America.”

The Anti-Gunners Are ‘Spending Millions’ in Midterm Elections

If you though the anti-gunners were beat with election of President Trump and one or two nominations to the Supreme Court, think again. The Washington Post has reported that anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety “plans to spend $8 to $10 million in Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, and New Mexico” to influence the midterm elections, via its “Action Fund.” And that is not the full extent of expenditures by the gun prohibition group’s fund, either.

NRA Board Member Duane Liptak: An Open Letter

Pro Second Amendment gun owners need a strong showing this fall to keep, and ideally expand, pro gun control of both chambers. Please get out and do your part, and encourage others to do the same. The anti-freedom groups are motivated, organized, and well-funded. Bloomberg has pledged to spend $80 Million in house races alone.

Can 3D-Printed Guns be Detected by TSA?

In the midst of last week’s hysteria over 3D plastic guns, CBS News reported that, over the past two years, the Transportation Safety Administration had intercepted “thousands of guns” at security checkpoints, including “a handful (that) were created with a 3D printer.” The story was accompanied by an image showing a tiny five-shot revolver and five .22 Magnum cartridges that were detected.

Firearms and the Mentally Ill

Firearms and mental illness is a touchy subject. While many agree that mental illness is behind tragic shootings, simply stripping individuals of their Second Amendment rights based on “mental illness” is a much deeper topic than some may recognize. This article will not answer, but it does raise, several questions ripe for two cents.

Intuit’s Policies on Firearms Business Don’t Add Up for 2A Companies

Intuit is most commonly known as  the maker of Quickbooks, Quicken and TurboTax. However, when it comes to Intuit’s online business accounting platform that processes credit card payments, Intuit has proven itself not to be very intuitive when it comes to firearms-related businesses. In fact, it has gone so far as to shut down the credit card processing services of firearms related businesses.

The State of Gun Control

Is it time to pursue real solutions to criminal violence and forget about a war on law-abiding gun owners? Of course it is. In fact, that is the only solution that has ever had a chance or reducing gun-related crime. By definition, laws only apply to the law abiding when it comes to prevention, but that has not stopped or slowed the anti-gunners’ “commonsense gun safety” agendas.

Blame the Criminals, Not Law Abiding Gun Owners

Every time the mainstream media covers an unlawful shooting, why is it that the lawful gun owners get the blame? Of course, the mainstream media is not the only one to blame. Gun control advocates are all too willing to use any tragedy as a fundraiser, targeting lawful gun owners and Second Amendment groups such as the NRA.
