Op-Ed: Brain Dead Broke

Who knew that when she claimed to be “dead broke” Hillary Clinton was talking about her moral and intellectual disabilities. During a CNN sponsored campaign advertisement cloaked as a “town hall meeting”, Hillary Clinton – an obvious Democrat candidate for President in 2016 – had a few nasty things to say about gun owners. Clinton opined that gun owners, and those who take constitutional mandates...

HSUS - leading the attacks on lead ammo

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is at it again. Well, truthfully, they never really stopped. They are just attempting to re-energize their base by attacking hunters and gun owners. The largest animal rights anti-hunting organization in the U.S., and possibly the world, has filed a petition with the Department of the Interior demanding legislation to stop the use of lead-based...

Bloomberg video proves need for equalizer

Imagine you’re a single mother of a small child. You’re 5’2”, 125 lbs. You and your young son are alone in your home one afternoon when your abusive ex-husband shows up at your door – 6’, 180 lbs – demanding that you give him the child. You have a restraining order against him, but he has chosen to ignore that and is violently pounding on your front door as he yells at you to open the door and...

Obscure commission considers "modernizing" Ohio constitution on right to bear arms

Does the "right to bear arms" section of Ohio's consitution need to be "modernized?" Some members of the Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission (OCMC) think so. I recently came across an article published by the Gongwer News Service in June, in which it was reported that the obscure panel's Bill of Rights and Voting Rights Committee had reversed course on a planned vote to recommend to the...

July 2014 Firearms Sales Checks Third Highest July on Record

The July 2014 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figure of 816,588 is the third highest July on record for the 16-year-old system, even with a decrease of 4.5 percent compared to the July 2013 NSSF-adjusted NICS figure of 855,259. For comparison, the unadjusted July 2014 NICS figure of 1,393,705 reflects a 9.6 percent increase from the unadjusted NICS figure of...

Colorado Experience Invalidates Big Private Transfer ‘Loophole’ Myth

We have long known that the argument of gun control activists that 40 percent of gun sales in this country occur without a background check was bogus. Even the Washington Post zinged President Obama in 2013 for his frequent use of that ersatz stat, awarding three of four possible Pinocchio’s in a rating category that requires “significant factual error and/or obvious contradictions”. The...

Gun Control Strategists Mind Their Tongues, Look To NRA for Tactics

Facts are stubborn things. So when the facts are not in your favor, it’s not surprising that your message and strategy will need to continually change. For gun controllers – while that message may be incorrect on important facets of history, constitutional principles, Supreme Court doctrine, or even the will of the American people – $50 million dollars is quite an incentive to stay on script. On...

Gun Industry Sales Reflect a 'New Normal,' Says NSSF President

NEWTOWN, Conn. — Last year was an extraordinary one for firearm sales, a year unlike any other in the industry's history. That's a fact to be mindful of when comparing estimated sales through the first seven months of 2014 with those of the previous year, notes Steve Sanetti, President and CEO of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms and ammunition...
