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.

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

Democrat gubernatorial candidate promotes banning private transfers of firearms

Ohio Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald's campaign is on the rocks. So much so that last week, just 90 days before the election, typically Democrat-friendly Ohio media outlets like the Cleveland Plain Dealer began openly questioning whether FitzGerald should bow out of the race. The campaign train-wreck started at least as far back in November of 2013, with FitzGerald's choice of 2010...
