    EAST LANSING, Mich. — All firearms have been banned on Michigan State University's campus and buildings, after the Board of Trustees voted Friday morning to close a loophole that allowed visitors to carry concealed firearms in public areas of campus. Currently, a Board of Trustee ordinances bans all student, staff, and faculty from carrying firearms on campus or in university buildings, regardless of whether they have a concealed pistol license, or CPL. An interpretation of the ordinance has allowed visitors to carry concealed firearms in public spaces on campus. Law enforcement and the Michigan State University Department of Police and...

    If you believe tweets from Michael Bloomberg’s The Trace and its employees, I am “one major factor” why the U.S. hasn’t passed stronger gun control laws and thus, they claim, responsible for mass shootings in the United States. These are becoming regular tweets after each mass public shooting. They are upset that I have quoted mass murderers on their decisions to target gun-free zones. Yet, statements such as, “Areas where CCW are outlawed or prohibited may be good areas of attack” are common among mass murderers. That doesn’t make sense to gun control supporters. Immediately after this week’s shooting at...

    On June 22, 2022, the Supreme Court issued the long-awaited and anticipated decision in the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen case. The decision ended more than a decade of silence by the Court as lower courts eviscerated Second Amendment right restored by the Heller and McDonald decision in 2008 and 2011, respectively. Bruen decisively restored the right to carry portable arms outside the home and clearly ordered lower courts to abide by the standards of the Heller and McDonald decisions rather than use the “two-step” process the lower courts had established to evade the restoration of...

Deputies searched the student’s vehicle after receiving a tip. The student was confronted and took off running. Deputies are still attempting to track down that student. ”We will be more proactive in addressing safety and security in all of our schools,” Rock Hill Schools district spokesperson...

    While many have bought into the simplistic idea that availability of firearms is the cause of mass shootings, a number of experts have pointed out a more uncomfortable truth, which is that mass shootings are far more likely the result of how we’ve been mistreating mental illness, depression and behavioral problems Gun control legislation has shown that law-abiding Americans who own guns are not the problem, because the more gun control laws that have been passed, the more mass shootings have occurred 97.8% of mass shootings occur in “gun-free zones,” as the perpetrators know legally armed citizens won’t be there...

    For decades, gun control advocates constantly claim that Right-to-Carry laws would lead to disaster. But when disasters don’t occur they move on to the next prediction of disaster. We have to keep track of these predictions if only to judge how much weight to give to their erroneous predictions. Montana is the latest state to let people carry concealed handguns on college campuses, and the state Board of Regents for the university system demanded an emergency stay from the state Supreme Court because “serious harm is threatened” if the law goes into effect on June 1. The Regents took a...

    Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was brutally murdered in the Parkland school massacre, put this election in the proper perspective as one between Joe Biden, who would put the safety of our kids and our country at risk for the sake of ideology, and Donald Trump, who would protect both. Pollack rightly condemned liberal Democratic policies in general for putting the students at Parkland and elsewhere in danger by pursuing social justice and social engineering policies that protect those who would do us harm and not allow us to protect ourselves. It is the same mindset of those who today...

    WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — An altercation over a man’s refusal to remove a “Make America Great Again” hat triggered a recent active shooter scare at a Pennsylvania mall, police said. The altercation started outside when a man confronted another man wearing the hat in support of President Donald Trump inside the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre on Dec. 30, authorities said Tuesday. The man threatened to assault the Trump supporter if he did not remove his hat, and then tried to knock it off his head.

    Tucker Carlson interviewed Nikki Goeser on Fox News about her new book “Stalked and Defenseless: How Gun Control Helped My Stalker Murder My Husband in Front of Me.” The case illustrates how gun-free zones disarm law-abiding citizens who obey the law and not criminals. Indeed, criminals are attracted to these gun-free zones because they know that their victims can’t defend themselves.

From AmmoLand, Candidate Trump: “They will be able to defend themselves against terrorists. Our brave soldiers should not be at risk because of policy created by civilian leadership. Political correctness has no place in this debate.” That policy was reiterated in 2018. President Trump said he would review the policy of keeping service members disarmed on our military bases and recruiting centers.  From President Donald Trump said Friday that he would review...
