"Universal" Background Checks - A Call to Reason

Psychologists and social scientists have long understood that people are inclined to stick to a belief even when they are presented with clear evidence that their belief is incorrect. In short, people are obstinate. Recent research has shown that this is not just a psychological issue, but also has a physiological basis.

Confirming the Bias: What Columbia School of Journalism's Dart Center Should Teach Reporters

I recently reported that the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, a project of the prestigious Columbia School of Journalism, is hosting a workshop for reporters in Arizona, supposedly intended to help them more effectively report on guns and “gun violence.” The conference raised red flags for gun owners by including inflammatory, misleading factoids about the toll of gun violence in our...

U.S. Rep. Patrick McHenry Introduces Bill to Keep Your Ammo out of the Obama Administration’s Clutches

As we reported [recently], BATFE has for now tabled its “Framework” to ban M855/SS109 ammunition and to reinterpret the federal “armor piercing ammunition” law in a way that would also jeopardize other types of common rifle bullets.
