  • Kimber Arms moving headquarters from New York to Troy, creating 366 Alabama jobs

    10/29/2020 8:00:10 AM PDT · by PROCON · 61 replies ^ | Oct. 27, 2020 | William Thornton
    Kimber Manufacturing is moving its corporate headquarters to Troy and will “aggressively hire” in all departments. The firearms manufacturer last week announced it is moving to a new facility it built last year on 80 acres with more than 225,000 square feet of space, with design engineering, product management and manufacturing space. The company, formerly based in Yonkers, N.Y., pledged two years ago to open a $38 million production facility in Troy, creating 366 jobs over the next five years, which Gov. Kay Ivey announced in her 2018 State of the State address. In an announcement, the company said Troy...
  • Gun Prohibitionists Cry Foul over Judge Benitez Taking Another 2A Case

    U.S.A. –-( Federal Judge Roger Benitez in San Diego, who has issued pro-Second Amendment rulings at least twice against California state statutes, was scheduled to hold an evidentiary hearing in another gun rights case Monday morning, and that is eliciting wails from gun prohibition groups. Anti-gun groups are already on the warpath against the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. For example, the Seattle-based Alliance for Gun Responsibility is campaigning to prevent confirmation, calling Judge Barrett “a Second Amendment extremist.” Federal Judge Roger Benitez in San Diego appears to be the newest target of anti-gun...
  • Federal Judge Allows 21 Businesses to Sue Seattle Over Harms Caused by CHOP ( formerly known at CHAZ )

    Friday, a federal district court judge allowed a lawsuit brought by 21 businesses against the city of Seattle to proceed, despite the city's attempt to have it dismissed. The lawsuit accuses the city of harming local business owners by allowing the existence of Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP), a self-declared autonomous zone that was established and occupied by racial justice protestors from June 8 to July 1. The occupied zone blocked all car traffic, reducing the businesses' access to customers, vendors and revenue, the lawsuit says. The lawsuit further alleges that city police largely neglected the zone, allowing protesters and...

    A U.S. District Judge in San Diego who has issued rulings in two separate lawsuits challenging California’s strict gun control measures will take up another weapons-related case on Monday, sparking criticism from gun-control groups who pro-gun advocates have been given an unfair advantage. Judge Roger Benitez has twice ruled in favor of gun rights: in a case that challenged California’s ban of high-capacity magazines, and another case mandating background checks for buying ammunition, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. On Monday, he will oversee a case challenging several state laws regulating and defining assault weapons. He is overseeing another case challenging...

    A Review of Jack Lawson’s Civil Defense Manual: How to Prepare and Protect Your Neighborhood from Disaster, Riot and Civil Unrest If you are reading this, chances are good that you consider yourself a liberty-loving patriotic American. You might also consider yourself, as I certainly do, a “prepper,” that is, an all-around survival and preparedness advocate. As preppers, we’ve long been anticipating crises ranging from financial collapse, to violent insurrection, to natural or even man-made disasters that could extinguish our electrical grid in a flash. Now, deep into 2020, the year of the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic and widespread Marxist-inspired riots,...

    Lake County prosecutors said that the gun Kyle Rittenhouse used in the Kenosha shooting was bought, stored and used in Wisconsin. No charges will be filed against him in Lake County. Rittenhouse, 17, of Antioch, is facing charges in Wisconsin of first-degree intentional homicide, two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide and possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18. The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday that an extensive investigation was conducted by the Antioch Police Department. The investigation revealed the gun used in the Kenosha shooting was purchased,...

    In his questioning of Amy Coney Barrett regarding an Indiana case about a non-violent felon and his constitutional right to bear arms, Illinois senator Dick Durbin dropped numerous false claims about Chicago gun crimes. But he topped it all off with one of the most egregiously inane arguments used against the private ownership of guns: When that Second Amendment was written . . . we were talking about the likelihood that a person could purchase a muzzle-loading musket. Durbin went on to say that the logical conclusion of the “originalist” position on firearms should be that the Founders were referring...

    A Rasmussen survey released October 7, 2020, shows that 57 percent of Republicans and 39 percent of Democrats have a gun in their home. Rasmussen found that 37 percent of politically “unaffiliated” Americans have a gun in their home as well. Overall, 43 percent of American adults say someone in their home owns a gun, and slightly over 1/5 of those say “they or someone in their household has purchased a gun since the violent anti-police protests began.”

    Missouri Gov. Michael Parson (R) vowed on Wednesday to pardon Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the white couple who drew national attention over the summer after footage of them pointing guns at Black Lives Matter protesters outside their home went viral, after the pair was indicted on charges related to the incident the day before. Parson said at a news conference on Wednesday that he "most certainly would" issue a pardon for the couple should they be convicted on counts of exhibiting a weapon and tampering with evidence brought against them over the June incident, according to The Associated Press. "We'll...

  • New Concealed Carry Report For 2020: 19.48 Million Permit Holders (Truncated Title)

    Crime Prevention Research Center ^ | October 2, 2020 | Dr. John R. Lott, Jr.
    During President Trump’s administration, the number of concealed handgun permits has soared to over 19.48 million – a 34% increase over 2016. However, while gun sales have set records in 2020, the growth in concealed handgun permits has slowed as many states shutdown their issuance of new permits. Unlike gun ownership surveys that may be affected by people’s unwillingness to answer personal questions, concealed handgun permit data is the only really “hard data” that we have. Seventeen states no longer provide data on all the people who are legally carrying a concealed handgun because people in those states no longer...

    American ^ | October 2, 2020 | Gideon Israel
    President Trump has said numerous times that the Democrats are coming for your guns -- either they will scrap the Second Amendment or gut it of any content. Though some have claimed this is an exaggeration, dismissing it as mere pandering to his electoral base, this election cycle may be different. One of the most significant signs of this is the Democrat Party platform and Joe Biden admitted in the first debate that he has given his stamp of approval on the 2020 platform. Democrats and Republicans approach the Second Amendment from very different vantage points in their platforms. Republicans...

    Don’t expect Joe Biden to talk about gun control in the first presidential debate. Or the second or third for that matter. Don’t expect him to answer direct questions about it. He’ll ignore the moderators and ignore reporter questions, if they actually ever ask him a real question. Here’s what you should expect. Biden will shuffle, side-step, tap dance, drag out, duck, dodge, tiptoe and shake off every attempt to get him to explain his far-left driven plan to rob Americans of their gun rights. How do I know? He’s done it before. Biden became incensed when he was actually asked...

    Rioting in New York, threats of court-packing, promises of arson at the thought of Trump replacing its demi-god with a justice who actually believes in the Constitution. The left is rabid. Even character assassination (a la the Bret Kavanaugh inquisition) is no longer enough. When will the hostage-taking start? The President has Article II power to nominate “judges of the Supreme Court.” Donald Trump’s power doesn’t extend to the next election, but to the next inauguration -- still four months away. The composition of the United States Supreme Court was a major issue in the 2016 election. Voters balked at...

    Gun sales have been rising nationwide for months but are specifically up in seven swing states as the November 3, 2020, election approaches. Fox News reports the Cook Political Report lists “Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin as toss-ups” in the coming election. They also indicate New Hampshire and North Carolina can be considered toss-ups too. Here is the kicker: There is a 77.9 percent surge in “gun sales growth” for those seven states. This news is on top of National Shooting Sports Foundation’s findings ammunition sales surged 139 percent nationally during the first six months of 2020. And the...

    Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine called on lawmakers in the Buckeye State this week to pass a series of reforms aimed at blunting the spike in gun-related violence. The reforms are part of a larger plan called “STRONG Ohio” that DeWine introduced in October of 2019 in the wake of the Dayton massacre. “I’m going to keep saying it. We have to, in Ohio, get tougher on repeat violent offenders,” DeWine stated on Tuesday, according to local media. “We have to get tougher on those who are convicted felons who have absolutely no business having a gun. We need to do...
