Hillary Clinton Sees “Terrorizing” Ideas in Gun Owners’ Convictions


Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably know that Hillary Clinton has been relentlessly promoting her new book that chronicles her tenure as U.S. Secretary of State. Despite her claims to the contrary, she is using her book as a platform and its tour as a shadow campaign for her 2016 presidential run.  A New York […]



Colorado Governor Hickenlooper Admits to Regrets over Anti-gun Legislation


A little over a year ago, Governor John Hickenlooper of Colorado signed into law a host of gun control legislation. The most controversial of the laws outlawed the sale of magazines of more than ten rounds capacity.  However, just last week, the Democratic Governor said that he regretted signing that legislation, among other admissions.

Gun Laws in Some U.S. Cities More Similar to Highly-Restrictive Mexico than to the Rest of America


The Second Amendment, as affirmed by the Heller and McDonald cases, protects the right of American citizens to possess guns regardless of geographic boundaries within the U.S., yet cities like Washington, D.C. and Chicago make gun ownership very difficult.

While some individual state legislatures passed anti-gun laws, those […]

Nevada Anti-gun Legislator Should Win a Silver . . . for Intolerance


To Silver State Assemblyman William Horne, D-Las Vegas, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, goes the silver medal for intolerance when it comes to the public expressing its opposition to more gun control in Nevada. After a recent 8-5 vote of that state’s Advisory Commission on the Administration of Justice to not even hear a proposal […]



#gunvote: Back to the Future?


During the second presidential debate, President Obama stated in a clear answer to a questioner that “…what I’m trying to do is to get a broader conversation about how do we reduce the violence generally.
