    President-elect Joe Biden will sign about a dozen executive orders on his first day in the White House, reversing several key policies enacted by the Trump administration. Biden's transition team revealed on Saturday that the incoming administration would sign executive orders regarding climate change, immigration, student loans, and the coronavirus pandemic. Incoming Biden chief of staff Ron Klain sent a memo to his staff on Saturday, outlining a 10-day plan of action. Included in the memo to the new White House staff, the Biden administration declared it would address "four overlapping and compounding crises: the Covid-19 crisis, the resulting economic...
  • “Build Back Better?”: Biden’s Gun Control Push Will Further Divide Us

    America is hurting. Tensions are high. Coming together and having meaningful dialogue seem impossible. People are tired of politics creeping into everyday life. Worst of all, self-righteous "unifiers" uninterested in unity continue to fan the flames of division. Is it too difficult to set aside our differences, to lower the temperature, and to demand better from elected officials? It shouldn’t be. For instance, healing will take a backseat should the incoming Biden administration and Democrat-controlled Congress pursue aggressive gun control policies. Why? Democrats, Republicans, and independents don’t want to lose their Second Amendment rights. In the spirit of healing and...
  • Montana House Weighs Elimination of Many State-Mandated Gun Free Zones

    The Montana House will soon vote on legislation to defend self-defense rights by eliminating state government-mandated gun free zones at Montana university campuses and other schools on public property. The self-defense legislation, House Bill 102, is sponsored by Rep. Seth Berglee (R-Dist. 58). HB 102 is presented as an Act “to enhance the safety of people by expanding their legal ability to provide for their own defense by reducing or eliminating government-mandated places were only criminals are armed and where citizens are prevented from exercising their fundamental right to defend themselves and others.”

    It’s time for the Commonwealth of Virginia, my adopted home state, to repeal antiquated blue laws prohibiting public land hunting on Sundays. Not only are they outdated, they go against the very principles inset in the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation. One of its seven principles, the democracy of hunting, stipulates the government must allocate “access to wildlife without regard for wealth, prestige, or land ownership.” The Virginia General Assembly will convene on January 13th for the 2021 legislative session to deliberate, among many bills, House Bill 1799 to undo these prohibitions.Lawmakers will have until February 27th to advance...
  • Here’s how to pass Constitutional Carry in Texas

    The Houston Courant ^ | 1/5/2021 | R. Malone
    We’re approaching that time of year when gun owners are wondering if Constitutional Carry legislation has any chance of passing in Texas. Here’s the answer: If enough people like you believe there’s a chance of passing Constitutional Carry, they will show up for it, and then we’ll have a strong chance of passing it. The inverse is also true. If most people don’t believe that Constitutional Carry has a shot, they will stay home. Too few people will show up, and the legislators won’t bother to work on it, so it will die. I first started working toward Constitutional Carry...

    A judge on Thursday dismissed the St. Louis prosecutor from the case against Mark McCloskey. A judge determined that improper fundraising emails by Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner's campaign infringed on the McCloskeys' right to receive a fair trial. Circuit Judge Thomas Clark II said that fundraising emails from Gardner's re-election campaign to constituents "raise the appearance of impropriety and jeopardize the defendant's right to a fair trial." "Like a needle pulling thread, she links the defendant and his conduct to her critics," Clark wrote in the 22-page ruling. "These emails are tailored to use the June 28 incident to solicit...

    If you’ve ever filled out a Form 4473, you’re familiar with the Question 11e: “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or other controlled substance?” In case you thought there was any ambiguity with regard to medical marijuana, you were wrong. Indeed, there is a warning in bold right underneath the question that clarifies: “Warning: The use or possession of marijuana remains unlawful under Federal law regardless of whether it has been legalized or decriminalized or for medicinal or recreational purposes in the state where you reside.” Regardless of what one...
  • Why is the 2nd Amendment Important?

    Why is the 2nd Amendment important? Because the 2nd Amendment is the one that guarantees all of the others. Sure, we need to defend free speech because without it we can’t express ideas (good or bad) openly or criticize the government. But can it back itself up on its own? No, if we had only the 1st Amendment but not the 2nd, we could lose our right to free speech at any moment. The government could simply take it away. Just look at what is happening in Hong Kong; when its citizens tried to exercise their human right to free...
  • Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper on How to Start Curbing Violent Crime

    11/24/2020 12:16:18 PM PST · by WTanner1776 · 36 replies
    “If violent crime is to be curved, it is only the intended victim who can do it. The felon does not fear the police, and he fears neither judge nor jury. Therefore what he must be taught to fear is his victim.” For those of you that don’t know, Lt Col Jeff Cooper was a US Marine best known for developing “modern” handgun shooting techniques and for his knowledge of small arms. And I think that this quote by Lt Col Jeff Cooper on curbing violent crime shows exactly why he was such a large cultural force in the firearms...

  • Gun Background Checks: How the State Came To Decide Who Can and Cannot Buy a Firearm

    Prior to 1968, most adults in the United States could purchase a firearm without state interference. Guns were available in local retail stores, as well as mail-order catalogs, and as long as you hadn’t been convicted of a felony and you had the funds, there weren’t any questions asked. Things are different now. Depending on where in America you are and what type of gun you want to buy, there’s a good chance you’ll need to pass a NICS-mandated background check to complete your purchase. Although many people hold a strong opinion for and against gun background checks, they’ve proven...

    She’s sometimes called the “conservative AOC.” Though it seems too few Republican candidates have learned anything from the success of President Trump’s bold, straight-talking, sometimes combative campaign style that his fans love, Colorado Congressional candidate Lauren Boebert most definitely has. And voters in Colorado’s Third Congressional District are loving it. When famous gunphobe Beto O’Rourke came to Aurora, Colorado last year and proclaimed he would take our guns, this small, pretty dark-haired woman with a Glock pistol in her hip holster stood up and told him, “I’m here to say hell no, you’re not! ” Boebert had driven several hours...

    Right Journalism ^ | 10.11.2020 | Natalie Dagenhardt
    In the midst of a challenging pandemic, many American cities have been under siege. Amid violence and riots, the rule of law has been abandoned by the same elected officials who swore to uphold it. Law-abiding citizens who unwittingly drove through protests have found themselves attacked or left to the mercy of a mob. The promotion of civil unrest and the systematic destruction of neighborhoods and businesses have been permitted with limited consequences under the guise of the First Amendment’s protection of the right to protest. Yet when the case for protecting the Second Amendment couldn’t be stronger to reasonable...

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden vowed on his campaign website to ban online gun and ammo sales, limit gun sales, ban “assault weapons,” force gun owners into buybacks or registration, and various other restrictions. Biden has expressed his anti-gun ideas, but his website spells out the specific measures he intends to take if he wins the election and assumes the presidency, which he describes as “constitutional, common-sense gun safety policies.” “Biden will enact legislation to once again ban assault weapons,” Biden’s website says. “While working to pass this legislation, Biden will also use his executive authority to ban the importation...

    Defending your property with a gun if needed is as American as apple pie. Donald Trump will not denounce it. When rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week burned down and looted businesses, the police did not stop them. We have seen this in cities across the country. No storeowner in Democratic-run areas that are subject to a leftist protest, which can “intensify” into riots, can have the slightest hope that the police will keep it from happening. That being the case, they really have no choice but to defend their property themselves or let it go up in flames. President...

    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...

    Well, I'm sure I've got your attention now, with that provocative title! But I'm not kidding. I think President Donald Trump will win by an electoral landslide on Nov. 3 because of guns, black voters and the NFL. Let me explain this winning formula. First, guns. It's hard to believe Democrats are this clueless, blind, deaf and dumb. And I stress dumb. They've made the 2020 election about guns. What a huge mistake in a country dominated by gun owners. First, a Soros-funded St Louis circuit attorney made the PR mistake of a lifetime: indicting Mark and Patricia McCloskey for...

    Sacramento, Calif. — A proposed amendment to California’s Handguns Certified for Sale law seems like a minor change at first, but Second Amendment advocates warn that it would amount to a de facto ban on handgun sales in the state. AB 2847, would relax the state’s difficult microstamping requirements, but at the same time, it would remove three older handgun models for every new handgun it adds to the official roster of those safe for sale. “In theory it makes the California microstamping or handgun roster easier for manufacturers to comply with,” said gun rights activist Reno May. “What it...
