    A gunman opened fire on a Republican congressional baseball practice session on Wednesday morning, injuring four people including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise in what is thought to have been a targeted attack on the GOP. The shooter - described as a white, middle-aged male - fired up to 100 rounds from a high powered rifle from the third base dugout at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia, as the group practiced batting at around 7am.

    The fringe movement is revving up its call for looser gun laws in response to the recent string of terror attacks on British soil. British activists are advocating for looser gun laws in response to the Saturday night ISIS terror attack that killed eight people and wounded nearly fifty others in central London. “These tragedies may have been the eye opener to just how ineffective our laws are,” Dave Ewing, a representative from the gun ownership advocacy group, Firearms-UK, told Vocativ. Firearms-UK, along with other advocacy groups like Arm UK Citizens, Legalise Guns in the UK, and England Wants Its...

    The Democrat-controlled Illinois House approved protections for illegal immigrants, made voter registration automatic for state residents, and passed more severe punishments for gun crimes Tuesday, the Chicago Tribune reports. Senate President and Democrat John Cullerton, who supported the immigration bill in the Senate, said it will “provide stability” for Illinois’ estimated half-million illegal immigrants by preventing state and local law enforcement from arresting them. Democratic legislators admit the measure is a direct response to President Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown, which they say has caused Illinois communities to “live in fear.”

    Contractors are concerned for their safety and the safety of their workers in light of planned and threatened protests and violence by anti-Trumpers.  Now, they are seeking to carry their firearms with them on the work site. Before we go further, the Second Amendment applies to contractors too, you know.  They should not be "asking" permission to keep and bear arms.  It is their right, their duty even, to do so.However, they are asking to do so. The Daily Caller reports:The head of a general contractor in Fort Worth, Texas, says he has received several death threats since he publicly...

    A man’s home is his castle, or so the saying goes. And people should be able to protect their homes - including our most precious asset, our families - against intruders without fear of a lawsuit. Some Nevada politicians are trying to change that. They think that you should be financially liable for any injuries they sustain when you defend yourself -- even in your home. Does that sound convoluted? It is. And, it’s ridiculous. If someone is invading your home, the last thing you should be thinking about is being sued if you use force to defend yourself or...
  • Opponents Of Permit Fee Increases Say Gun Owners Being Targeted [Connecticut]

    Hartford Courant ^ | Feb 17, 2017 | Chris Keating
    Legislators and advocates charged Friday that Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is specifically targeting gun owners for a fee increase that they said is not justified by an increased workload. Rep. Rob Sampson, a Wolcott Republican, said the proposal represents an unreasonable jump from the current $70 to $300 for a five-year permit renewal and $370 for an initial permit for first-time gun owners, up from the current $140. "I just don't understand why he would single out this particular group and increase it by an exorbitant amount," Sampson said of the Democratic governor.
  • What Justice Gorsuch Might Mean for the Second Amendment

    National Review ^ | 02/01/2017 | Andrew F. Branca
    Trump’s nomination of federal judge Neil Gorsuch to the US Supreme Court has been greeted with much glee by conservatives and a well-anticipated gnashing of teeth by the progressive Left. Naturally, those of us in the gun community have our own particularized questions about what a Justice Gorsuch might mean for the Second Amendment. Let’s take a look, shall we? A look at Judge Gorsuch’s generalized judicial philosophy is certainly encouraging. Given that it was Scalia who led the pro–Second Amendment decisions in District of Columbia v. Heller and MacDonald v. Chicago, and that Gorsuch has been described not...

    After $30m in campaign ad buys and months of unflinching support for Donald Trump, the National Rifle Association has what it wanted: a supreme court nominee it views as a strong defender of gun rights. The federal court judge Neil Gorsuch “will protect our right to keep and bear arms”, the gun rights group said on Tuesday night, in a swift endorsement of Trump’s supreme court pick. Gun control advocates say that some of Gorsuch’s previous cases suggest he might support laws that “make it easier for felons to own guns”. Unlike Thomas Hardiman, another federal judge who was also...

    You’re at a traffic stop. The officer asks to see your license and registration, and, like a responsible concealed handgun permit holder, you offer your CHL along with your driver’s license. Immediately upon seeing your handgun license, the officer forces you from your vehicle, frisks you, and removes your handgun from its holster. Despite this clear violation of your Fourth Amendment rights, you keep your cool. Neither before, during, nor after the incident have you acted strangely, suspiciously, or aggressively. When you ask why you’re being treated this way, the officer responds, “I had reason to believe you had a...

    In addition to pushing a pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment agenda From an originalist view of the United States Constitution, every federal gun law is unconstitutional. If there needs to be protections like background checks and laws asserting any regulations, that must happen at the State level. That is not to say the States have the authority to betray our right to keep and bear arms. Our right to our guns is an inherent right, a natural right that belongs to us no matter what. However, we must also remember that regarding our rights, while it is a no-no for the federal...

    In what will hopefully be one of the final acts of the Obama Administration on firearms, the ATF on Monday announced that its proposed changes to the Form 4473 would go into effect on January 16, 2017, just four days before the inauguration of President-Elect Donald Trump. Form 4473 is the federally mandated form that must be filled out by any person who acquires a firearm from a licensed dealer.... Another notable change to the form is the inclusion of a bolded warning to potential transferees from ATF. The warning provides that “the use or possession of marijuana remains unlawful...

    Dawn Dolpp isn’t a slave to fashion, preferring function over form. Which is why she used to secure her handgun in her purse with a Velcro strip as recently as 10 years ago. Today, Mrs. Dolpp and other gun-toting women like her don’t have to resort to homemade craft projects to provide themselves with holsters and other accessories for their firearms: Gun-related companies are doing it for them. “One thing the gun and accessory companies are finally understanding is that one size doesn’t fit all,” says Mrs. Dolpp, the leader of the Virginia chapter of The Well Armed Woman.

    It’s now law. In Missouri, you no longer need a license to carry a firearm in public. They’re the 12th state to adopt such a law known as constitutional carry; Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) represents a state with such a law. To those who love freedom and the Second Amendment, it’s a great day for the expansion of constitutional rights. For anti-gun liberals, it’s a day for hysterics, which wasperfectly captured by the editorial board of The New York Times: The measure has drawn no great national attention, but it certainly provides further evidence that gun safety cannot be...
