House Approves Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill

Reciprocity would allow anyone with a valid concealed carry gun permit in one state to travel to any other state with the permitted weapon and not worry about being arrested or fined for carrying that concealed firearm. With passage in the House, the Senate is the last hurdle to a safer America.

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.

After You Get a Concealed Weapons Permit 101

It is encouraging to see so many Americans obtaining their concealed weapon permit. These new shooters are supporters of the 2nd Amendment and have taken steps to be responsible for their own safety and security. Yet, in many cases, there are people among them that are armed with a deadly weapon but unable to defend themselves well.

NRA: 5 Reasons to Support National Reciprocity

This seems like it would be obvious. Sadly, it’s not. The Supreme Court affirmed in 2008 that Americans have a constitutionally-protected individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense. What’s more, no state can deny a Constitutional right. All national reciprocity means is that state governments must respect non-residents’ right to carry a firearm for self-defense to the same degree as residents of the state.

NRA: No Second-Guessing the Second Amendment

The meaning of the Second Amendment has been debated for decades. Does the Second Amendment protect an individual right for all Americans? Or does it only protect the right to keep and bear arms while participating in an organized force, such as the National Guard? Or does it only protect the “right” of the states to have a National Guard in the first place?

NRA: New York Wants Handguns to be Rationed in Virginia

Whenever a politician or anti gunner proposes legislation and explains it as common sense, there is one thing you can be sure of, it is anything but common sense to gun owners or those who believe in the Second Amendment. Such is the case of the call from Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe for the enactment of a new one-handgun-a-month law to mimic a handgun rationing law that was repealed in 2012.

4th Circuit Court of Appeals Trying to Kill the Second Amendment?

It has been seven long years since the Supreme Court last heard a case dealing with the Second Amendment. However, with confirmation hearings for Judge Neil Gorsuch, there’s renewed hope that the nation’s high court will once again weigh in on one or more of the many cases having to do with our right to keep and bear arms.
