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. Speaking to a gathering of sheriffs from […]



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. Seeing how these cities have violent crime rates higher than other U.S. cities, you would think they would make it […]

Daniel Defense Scores against the NFL, without Even Taking the Field

It would have been interesting to see if the television ad that Daniel Defense wanted to run during the 2014 Super Bowl would have caused the hubbub in elite liberal circles that the National Football League clearly feared it would. It may well have, but we’ll never know, for sure, since the NFL decided that […]



Illinois Carry Ban Overturned by Federal Court

The Illinois ban on civilians carrying firearms has been overturned by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. The court has given the Illinois General Assembly 180 days to develop a new state statute that is in accordance with the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and recent decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court on the […]



#gunvote: Thanks for Your Support

With the election results in, it’s important to remember that the same voters who gave President Obama four more years in office by a narrower margin than he won in 2008 also produced a divided Congress. Democrats remain in control of the Senate by a few votes. Republicans hold a solid majority in the House. […]



Presidential Note Passing

Remember in school when you had to read a note aloud if you were caught passing it to another person? Well, it seems President Obama long ago wrote a straightforward and frank note regarding his views on the Second Amendment. And now it’s sparking interest on the auction circuit, the equivalent of being read aloud. […]



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 […]

As the election season comes to a close and the television commercials, political mailings, and radio advertisements reach a fevered crescendo, the pundits are studying poll results that seem to shift by the hour. But in the end there is only one poll that truly matters, and that is Election Day itself. It is your […]
