Who's Right About Right-to-Carry?

Later this year, Congress may consider Right-to-Carry reciprocity legislation that would require states to honor each other’s concealed firearm carrying permits. When they do, gun control supporters better hope they have someone more effective to argue for their side than anti-gun advocate Daniel Webster. The Washington Post reports that Webster, the director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun...

What HB 234 Means to You: Part I - NICS compliant background checks

There has been a considerable amount of discussion and misinformation related to HB 234 (and HB 203) relating to the provision making the background check for obtaining an Ohio CHL a “NICS compliant” background check. Let us start with some rumor control. HB 234 when enacted will NOT put the federal government in charge of who qualifies for an Ohio CHL, give them a database of Ohio gun owners, or...

Media Fail: Americans' Gun Purchases Are Soaring

Lately, along with gun control supporters claiming that the number of gun owners is declining, some in the media have been saying that Americans’ gun purchases are declining as well. Last summer, Time.com went so far as to say--and we’re not kidding, here--that guns are one of the 10 Things Americans Have Suddenly Stopped Buying. And this week, a Washington Post headline, Gun sales in Virginia...

Is Your Concealed Carry Gear Up to Speed?

In mid-July [2014] I found myself once again on the range at the Greene County Fish and Game Association with Dave Spaulding and Brian “Bucky” Buchanan from Handgun Combatives; Larry Moore, Joe Eaton, and Clint Lake from the Buckeye Firearms Association (BFA); and about fifty-five others. We were all there for “Pistol Basics with Dave Spaulding”, a fund-raiser course Dave does to help benefit BFA...

Bell Rings for Anti-Gun Senator Barbara Boxer

California's junior U.S. senator, Barbara Boxer (D), announced this week that she will not seek re-election in 2016. The announcement follows a statewide poll last year, indicating that Boxer's support among Californians had slipped. Moreover, in the November 2014 elections, her party became the minority in Congress' upper house, resulting in her loss of the chairmanship of the Senate Environment...

The One Thing You Can Do for Rights in 2015

It is mind-boggling that we’re now living in 2015. I like to think I’m not so old, but I also remember when 2001 was a distant date in a science fiction movie.
