According to a recently released memo, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Justice Department was directed to focus on getting illegal guns, and those who possessed them, off the streets.

How Ridiculous is Australia’s List of Prohibited Weapons?

Lawmakers favoring gun control are continually talking about Australia’s gun control and how the United States needs to follow Australia’s lead. While laws attempting to abridge the Second Amendment are bad enough, Australia’s laws go far beyond simply banning guns. Australian laws bans fake or replica guns, crossbows, and several types of knives such as trench knives. You know, like the ones used in WWI, because those are common among street muggers and gang members these days…

NJ SAFE 2A Event to Be Held on Cusp of Gubernatorial Vote

With President Trump in the White House, the fight for the Second Amendment is going to happen at the local level.

Maryland Residents Challenge the 4th Circuit’s Kolbe v. Hogan Ruling

Earlier this year, the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the law and ruled against the pro Second Amendment forces in Kolbe v. Hogan. However, Kolbe v. Hogan is a direct contradiction of the Supreme Court’s 2008 decision, District of Columbia v. Heller. The Heller decision, of course, famously re-affirmed American citizens’ right to self-defense. Fortunately, the good citizens of Maryland are done with the fight. In fact a group of citizens, with the support of the National Rifle Association, filed a petition to the United States Supreme Court on Friday seeking to reverse the Court of Appeals’ ruling.

Lessons From Bloomberg—the Face of Gun Control—Who Admits He Deceives

They say that money makes the world go round. While that may be hard to prove, the fact of simply having a mass fortune and a political agenda can yield results or be a political threat. The politics of where you stand on the issue determines which side of the fence you’ll sit. For supporters of the Second Amendment, it is guaranteed that we will be on the opposite side of the fence as Michael Bloomberg. However, there are lessons to be learned by Bloomberg’s words.

You Make the Call: Gun-Phobic Professor Quits Over Campus Carry

One associate professor at the University of Kansas has resigned because he feels the policy of allowing students to carry a concealed firearm will harm higher education. “If you start putting more students with guns in the mix, it’s not going to improve public safety, and I can guarantee you it will degrade public education,” said Dorman. However, our author has few things to say as well, but we want you to read the story and join the debate.
