    It’s not often that a court captures a debate perfectly in a sentence or two. After all, most debates are complex things that require layers of discussion. However, the Delaware State Supreme Court just lowered the boom on restrictions that kept lawfully owned and carried firearms out of state parks. In the process, they summed up what we’ve been saying for years regarding firearms and gun control laws. The Superior Court earlier upheld the ban based on the “important governmental objective of keeping the public safe from the potential harm of firearms in state parks and forests,” The Court did...

    Singer-actress Nancy Sinatra blasted members of the National Rifle Association (NRA) on Twitter this week, writing that the “murderous” group members should face a “firing squad” for their support of firearm rights. The “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” singer has called for tougher gun control measures in the wake of the mass shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert this week that claimed the lives of 59 people and left more than 500 others injured. “The murderous members of the NRA should face a firing squad,” Sinatra wrote on Twitter in response to a Daily Kos article posted...

    Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump -- who said he has a concealed carry permit -- called for the expansion of gun rights Friday, including making those permits applicable nationwide. In a position paper published on his website Friday afternoon, Trump called for the elimination of gun and magazine bans, labeling them a "total failure." "Law-abiding people should be allowed to own the firearm of their choice. The government has no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own," Trump wrote. It's not a departure from what he's said on the trail this year, though it...

    A warmly worded thank you note from the days when there was a Clinton in the White House is raising questions about Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s stand on gun control. In 1994, when former President Bill Clinton was working to get an assault weapons ban through Congress, Kasich was one of only 38 Republicans who voted in support of H.R. 4296, the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. For that action, he received a letter, only recently unearthed, from Clinton.

    Jeb Bush isn't packing, according to a gun ownership survey of U.S. Republican presidential candidates published by the Daily Telegraph of London Tuesday. Despite his “A+” rating from the National Rifle Association, the powerful gun lobby, Bush is one of the few candidates who does not own firearms. Chris Christie, the governor of New Jersey, and Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett Packard boss form California, also do not own guns, according to the Telegraph survey. While Bush, the former Florida governor, has touted his pro-gun rights record and state-level anti-gun violence laws, his not owning a weapon himself has concerned...

    FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Saturday channeled 1970s action star Charles Bronson in defending Second Amendment rights in the aftermath of the shooting at an Oregon community college that left nine dead. Trump said in a rally in suburban Nashville that he has a handgun carry permit in New York. He added that any attacker will be "shocked" if he tries to assault him, and that he would emulate Bronson in the vigilante film "Death Wish." "Can you imagine with Trump, somebody says, 'Ohhh, all these big monsters aren't around, he's easy pickins, and then...
  • Study Learns Chicago Criminals DON'T Buy Their Guns Legally

    A recent study that was conducted by the University of Chicago’s Crime Lab has learned that Chicago criminals do not acquire their guns from gun shops, gun shows or the internet. The study examined and interviewed inmates in Chicago’s Cook County Jail who are either facing current gun charges, or have a background consisting of firearms related convictions. The study learned that virtually zero criminals have ever used the internet or gun shows, because that method is easily traceable. It’s much safer for a criminal to acquire firearms on the streets where they’re harder to keep track of, and that’s...

Since our last update we have shipped our initial run of 200 machines, and are now shipping about 10 a day to complete those 300 orders originally scheduled for fulfillment in Q1 of this year. We've broken the shipping delays down from six months to three, and by the end of the summer we'll have six week lead times for current wait list orders. All credit for this is due to the hard work of the boys here at the shop. We overcame significant supplier failures early in the year...

    As Democrat postmortem sets in and gun control proponents grasp for ways to explain the political beating they took on November 4, the explanation is already evident to voters -- "It's the Second Amendment, stupid." In 1992 James Carville provided a singular focus for the Bill Clinton campaign by quipping, "It's the economy, stupid." The Harvard Institute of Politics reports that this went from being a statement to an "internal audience of campaign workers" to being the way Clinton packaged and sold his presidential campaign. Fast forward 22 years and "It's the Second Amendment, stupid." The Washington Post admitted that...

The TEF investment will be added to Maverick Arms own "$3.4 million in capital investment" to expand their Eagle Pass, TX, manufacturing facility.

    Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, not only allows customers and employees to carry guns in the restaurant, they go out of their way to encourage it. According to the Post Independent, a sign on the front of the restaurant reads: "Guns are welcome on premises. Please keep all weapons holstered, unless the need arises. In such cases, judicious marksmanship is appreciated." Guns are carried openly by waitresses and patrons alike. The restaurant is owned by Lauren Boebert who says: "We encourage [carrying guns], and the customers love that they can come here and express their rights. This country was founded...

    A national gun safety organization has set its sights on Minneapolis-based Target to stop gun-rights demonstrations in their stores. The group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense launched a petition on Wednesday. They’re asking Target’s interim CEO John Mulligan to establish a policy to prohibit people from openly carrying guns in its stores. “Already we’ve had several different restaurants say that they will no longer allow some open carry…some guns all together in their establishments,” said Shannon Watts with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense. Last March, several people from the group Open Carry Texas were photographed walking down the...

    A bill banning the sale of single-shot handguns that can be modified into semi-automatic weapons advanced in the California legislature on Thursday as lawmakers sought to close what the bill's supporters say is a loophole in the state's gun safety laws. Gun control advocates say thousands of weapons are sold in California each year without a required safety feature that indicates when a bullet is in the chamber, endangering children and others who may be shot accidentally. The bill passed the assembly 48-25, and goes to the state senate.

    In a commercial set to run just before and after President Obama's January 28 State of the Union (SOTU) address, Gabrielle Giffords looks into the camera and says, "Congress is afraid of the gun lobby." According to the Associated Press , Giffords will push background checks as a way to "make it harder for criminals and the mentally ill to get guns." She will say, "9 out of 10 Americans support background checks." On December 4, Breitbart News reported a CNN poll that showed "50 percent of Americans oppose more gun control," and only "49 percent" support it.

    On Monday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, MSNBC's Richard Wolffe mocked NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre for asserting a year ago that "the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun," by using the example of Antoinette Tuff, who last August heroically talked a gunman in a school into surrendering. Wolffe treated one exceptional and unlikely case as if it proved LaPierre wrong as he awarded Tuff the show's "person of the year" award. Wolffe:
