Do Waiting Periods Really Save Lives?

Requiring law-abiding citizens to wait some arbitrary period between the time they purchase a firearm and the time they take possession of that firearm has been a staple of the gun control left for a long time. The argument being that a waiting or “cool down” period will reduce homicides committed using firearms. But is […]

Don’t Vote for Someone Who Is Not Endorsed

Every election season Second Amendment organizations reach out to candidates.  We send questionnaires and meeting requests and it is all an attempt to evaluate their candidacy for possible endorsement.  We want to know if they are pro Second Amendment, viable, and honorable because our next step is to communicate to our membership that support will […]

Should You Consider Concealed Carry?

While working an RSO shift at the range last week I had the opportunity to speak with two gentlemen on the subject of concealed carry. One man was very interested and had permits in numerous states but not California. His buddy felt like he had no need to carry and cited several mutual friends that […]

Progress in the Fight to End Gun Free Zones

Clear thinking Americans understand that the vast majority of gun control laws in place are completely ineffective regarding their stated purpose. That stated purpose is always to increase public safety and reduce crime. Many of these laws actually endanger the public. Most are unconstitutional in that they clearly “infringe” on our rights. Among the most […]

Reconsidering SCOTUS in the Fight for the Second Amendment

In 2017 I wrote an article questioning the wisdom of depending on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to protect the Second Amendment (2A) and the rights of gun owners in America. Over time there seemed to be too many instances where SCOTUS declined to hear a 2A case or when they did, […]

Sweet Virginia Under Siege by Anti-Gun Forces – Citizens Fight Back

Funded by multimillionaire leftists, anti-gun forces have swept the elections and seized control of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Michael Bloomberg and others poured an inordinate amount of money into the Virginia elections and were able to elect an anti-gun Governor and create a legislature dominated by anti-gun politicians.
