    State to again become a battleground over gun policy Ralph Northam / Getty One of the nation's leading gun-control advocacy groups announced plans on Friday to spend upwards of $1 million in the upcoming Virginia gubernatorial and attorney general races even though a similar spending effort failed to flip control of the state senate in 2015. The Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, a New York-based gun-control group founded in large part by Michael Bloomberg, is donating $450,000 to Democrat Ralph Northam in his race against Republican Ed Gillespie. They're spending another $250,000 on mailers supporting Northam. The gun-control group...

    Following the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise at the hands of a deranged liberal terrorist, Rep. Thomas Massie introduced a bill for national reciprocity. This bill would make it so concealed carry license would be treated like marriage licenses or drivers licenses; a permit in one state would be recognized in every other state.The bill, however, has stalled, and Massie points the finger for this squarely at Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. – Bearing Arms Second Amendment rights, long considered the Republicans purview, are being kicked down the road by Paul Ryan. As Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit wondered outloud:...

    In a disturbing move that reeks of tyranny, Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed a Democrat bill into law that permits the Oregon government to steal guns without notice. The law, based off of Oregon Senate Bill 719, has faced massive resistance from Republicans and Oregon citizens alike. Despite this, the local governments managed to sign it into law—Oregon is no longer a free state. 12 SHARES SHARE THIS STORY In a disturbing move that reeks of tyranny, Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed a Democrat bill into law that permits the Oregon government to steal guns without notice.

    Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer (D) addressed the August 12 car attack that killed Heather Heyer, suggesting it highlights the need to limit concealed carry. He said he supports the Second Amendment, and is even "friends with many gun owners," but he thinks more restrictions are necessary following the rally in which a car attack took an innocent life. According to the Atlantic, Signer said, "While I am…a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, that right, like all Constitutional rights, comes with limits." He then said, "Just as machine guns cannot be owned by civilians in this country ... it should...

    Wife unit and I just completed painting our childrens rooms. Theme should be between K-3 , boy and girl. What posters/themes centered on education and religion would you put in their room? Below is a small list I have brainstormed, and I am interested in things that just ARENT taught as much anymore or not emphasized enough. When I was growing up my room was filled with posters to keep my mind going......most were hand made by mom. I'm sure there are nice ones that homeschoolers and teachers use that maybe I'm not thinking of. Thanks! FReegards!

    Gun ads have changed with the times. Political correctness is certainly not the name of the game in these classic pieces of gun marketing. It was just plain old fashion advertising back in the day. Hammer the hammer? Lawyers wouldn’t come within a football field of this one. Of course, hammering on a vintage revolver probably is a bad idea anyway…Oh no, that guy is teaching his son how to hunt, you say? Where are their iphones, video games and couch? Well, buddy, this is how a father is supposed to raise his son to be a man, not a...

    “If the central government has the authority to tell a state it must accept permits from all the other states, then it also has the authority to tell a state it may not accept a concealed permit from any other states. If the central government can do these things it can set up a national concealed carry permit scheme and in essence bring into existence a national arms registry. That is exactly where this is headed.” Attorney Richard D. Fry 1 Some are touting the federal Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 (HR 38) as a bill which would expand...

    In their passion to achieve a government-crafted utopia, the liberal/progressive movement often does more harm than good. This is because their tool of choice – the government – can only apply superficial solutions that come with harmful side effects. Efforts to correct “income inequality” and “fight poverty” through government entitlement programs are a prime example. As columnist George Will recently asked and answered, “[W]hat if large causes of poverty are not matters of material distribution but are behavioral – bad choices and the cultures that produce them? If so, policymakers must rethink their confidence in social salvation through economic abundance.”...

    A U.S. House member called the National Rifle Association and one of its chief spokeswomen a threat to national security. Rep. Kathleen Rice, New York Democrat, appeared to be responding to NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch noting that Philando Castile was in possession of marijuana when police shot the motorist dead. According to her next tweet five minutes later, that makes the NRA a “domestic security threat.” “I’m just going to say it. #NRA & @DLoesch are quickly becoming domestic security threats under President Trump. We can’t ignore that,” Ms. Rice said.

    Not long ago, I got to know a very interesting person, who turned out to be a typically very confused liberal democrat. They can't hide all that anger and confusion behind their favorite slogan of "conservatives are full of hate!" for long. It's heartbreaking to watch such promise and talent and basic decency become wasted and used. Once, during a rare lucid, calm moment, he said to me that no one, the government or any powers that be, cared anything about him, because in the scheme of things, he was just a 'little fish'. He couldn't take any more facts...

    A man is charged with attempted murder and a raft of firearms offences after helping fend off home invaders, one of whom he’s now charged with shooting. Kyle Earl Munroe was arrested on July 12 after RCMP and Halifax Regional Police responded to a report of a home invasion involving firearms at a home in Porters Lake. Police said that three men entered the residence with guns and a struggle took place with two men inside. The two in the home seized a firearm from one of the suspects and several shots were fired as the suspects fled. Police later...

    Minneapolis, MN – Raymond Dehn, candidate for Minneapolis mayor, is proposing police officers leave their guns in their cars, but says it’s okay for them to have nightsticks or pepper spray. Raymond Dehn, who is also a State Representative, is running against current mayor Betsy Hodges in this fall’s election, according to Fox9. He said, “Officers don’t need to carry guns on their person all the time…I’m not saying they don’t have access to that, just like they have access to more lethal weapons in their cars, I would believe they would still have access to their guns in their...

    A federal appeals court has blocked enforcement of a strict concealed-carry law in the nation’s capital that required gun owners to prove a “good reason” in order to obtain permits allowing them to carry handguns for self defense. In a 2-1 decision, U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has ordered lower courts to issue permanent injunctions blocking enforcement of the D.C. law. In rejecting the city’s law, the court ruled that while the Second Amendment allows for some limits on gun possession it does now allow for “bans on carrying in urban areas like D.C. or bans on...

    A coalition of police chiefs with a history of supporting gun control initiatives are taking aim at national concealed carry legislation, saying it could “sow chaos.” The National Law Enforcement Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence, composed of an alliance of various police chief lobbying groups, on Friday penned a letter to Congress urging lawmakers to decline support for a pair of national concealed carry reciprocity bills. The measures, the H.R. 38 and S.446, respectively, would expand carry rights nationwide, in effect forcing states and local jurisdictions to respect all valid concealed carry permits, a move the group feels is a...

The theft happened at a gas station near Morgan Street and Jackson Boulevard at about 1 a.m., Chicago police said. Police said a 32-year-old man left his car running at the gas station when a male suspect entered the car and took off. Police have not confirmed that the stolen white Chevy Equinox belonged to an FBI agent. The vehicle was last seen heading east on Van Buren Street. There were several guns in the FBI agent's vehicle when it...

    Cortney grabbed this delicious thread on Twitter between Dana Loesch and liberal CNN contributor Sally Kohn, who accused the conservative commentator and Second Amendment supporter of inciting violence in her latest ad…that denounces violence. It’s comedic theater that’s going on here, folks. The ad features Loesch talking about the progressive left’s pervasive assault on our society and culture. They use the news media to peddle biased news, or in some cases—fake news. They use schools to tell students that President Trump is Hitler reincarnated. The Hollywood Left does their part with their cultural reach to spread left wing narratives. All...

Guns are ubiquitous in our culture ... gun ownership is completely normal, and – contrary to what the gun grabbers and “security liberals” would have you believe – safe. There is a direct...
