Everyone has that kitchen drawer. That’s the one where a book of matches, take-out menus, extra cell-phone power cords, pet treats, a pack of gum, and a hammer are kept. That is, of course, if you could only find them under the rest of the junk in there. That’s sort of what our state-by-state landscape looks like when it comes to firearms legislation after this week’s midterm elections. It’s ugly, but if you dig, there’s something worth finding.
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.
Love it or hate it—The Shooter’s Log has certainly received comments on both sides—the NRA is fighting hard for the Second Amendment and our rights. Recently, The Shooter’s Log reported on moves by certain banking institutions to limit or outright refuse to do business with manufacturers and businesses within the firearms community. Following that, we ran Cuomo Urges (Threatens) Banks Against Doing Business With 2A Companies. Now, the NRA is fighting back by filing suit in district court.
It is one thing to have an opinion as an elected official and espouse an opinion. It is quite another to make a veiled threat against due to your political position or influence. However, that is exactly what many believe Andrew Cuomo, previous governor of New York, crossed the line when he “urged” banks and insurance companies—some would say threatened—repercussions to their reputations if they continued doing business with firearm and ammunition manufacturers. One of those ammunition manufacturers has ‘fired’ back.

In fact, traveling to areas you are not as familiar with, crowded shopping malls, or on significant holidays all raise the threat from the everyday criminal as well as the lone wolf attacker. As a result, sadly, we need to be more vigilant and ready to take responsibility for our own safety more than ever. However, crossing state lines could land you an invite for Christmas dinner in the pokey. Here’s a list of the top five states to avoid while carrying with firearms, along with a handful of (dis)honorable mentions.
From the moment the recent tragedy in Las Vegas hit the news, we knew we would have to brace for shock and wait for the fallout. Several states have bills pending. There will be the usual sabre rattling from the normal characters, of course. The question that matters most is, “How do they purpose to infringe on the Second Amendment this time?” We have the answers.
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.
