Federal Bill Seeks to Use Your Taxes to Bribe States to Require Gun Licenses

It's bad enough that antigun members of Congress want to enact federal legislation to impose the elitist views of their coastal enclaves on the entire country. What's worse is that in typical Big Government fashion, they want to use your tax dollars to accomplish their schemes. The latest example of this is the "Handgun Purchaser Licensing Act," which at least has the distinction of having an...

Your Tactical Training Scenario…Violence at Church

Are you prepared to deal with an armed threat in your place of worship? Maybe you should pay more attention to the nature of the potential threat. When we look at all Rapid Mass Murders that have occurred in this country, we find that the second most common place for them to occur is in a church or place of worship.

"Lawful Purpose and Self Defense Act of 2015" Introduced to Curb BATFE Abuse

On Wednesday, June 10, 2015, Chairman of the House Committee on Natural Resources Rob Bishop (R-UT) introduced H.R. 2710, the "Lawful Purpose and Self Defense Act of 2015."

In a unanimous decision, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that when a person who owns firearms is convicted of a felony – which makes firearm possession illegal for them – they still retain the right to dispose of their firearms as they see fit, as long as they don’t do so in a way where they would have access or control over those firearms. What is astounding about this decision is that it had...

Attack on Charleston church draws attention to Ohio ban on concealed carry in places of worship

Once again, a mass murder has occurred in a public place - the Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, SC. Once again, the victims were defenseless. Palmetto State law, like Ohio's, prohibits concealed carry in places of worship unless that entity permits otherwise, and it appears unlikely that such permission was given in this case. Once again, political opportunists are following the gun ban...
