Active Killer Response Options for Armed Citizens

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about active killer events. I’m convinced that it is getting incrementally more and more dangerous to intervene in such an attack. A study came out ... stating that 8% of Americans have a CCW permit/license. Unlicensed concealed carry is also completely legal in 16 states. Those residents can carry without getting a permit. The bottom line is that a lot of...

Should I Leave the Scene of a Defensive Shooting?

I received the following question from one of my readers: “I have discussed ‘what to do’ after a successful ‘stop the threat’ shoot. Some have said that they would leave the scene rather than be subjected to the legal hassle, or additional danger, (depending on the circumstances). Please give me your advice on their reasoning.” I was honestly quite shocked at this one. Are there really people out...

Growing the Second Amendment Community Through Gaming

The future of the Second Amendment depends on changing hearts and minds in America and bringing more people to gun ownership and the shooting sports.

Gun and Alcohol Case Could Put Citizens at Risk in Their Own Homes

“The Ohio Supreme Court will hear arguments in February to decide whether a law prohibiting gun owners from carrying firearms while intoxicated should be applied inside a gun owner’s home,” the Associated Press reported [recently]. Seeing an opportunity for a new and intrusive way to catch more gun owners in the disarmament net, the gun-grabbers are arguing that upholding an arrest is necessary...

Judge denies cities' request to block statewide preemption enhancements

Anti-gun rights forces weren't happy with ANY of the changes to Ohio law passed via HB 228 in late 2018, but they decided that one in particular was worth spending tax-payer dollars to sue over - an improvement to the statewide preemption law which gave individuals and groups the ability to seek remedy through the courts when the law was violated. The change in the law was necessary because many...

VIDEO: John Lott destroys Hollywood gun myths

Hollywood may know a lot about how to entertain people, but it doesn't know squat about guns or gun owners. In fact, the movies and TV shows coming out of La La Land are filled with myths about firearms. This is one of the reasons so many people are confused about serious issues such as crime and self-defense. Economist John Lott, President of the Crime Prevention Research Center , takes on...

How to react if approached about carrying a firearm in a store

Because of the recent murders committed in Texas and Ohio, and the resulting knee-jerk reactions, more and more stores that we regularly patronize are now banning open carry, and sometimes concealed carry, of firearms inside their retail establishments. I am often asked about what to do when you are confronted about carrying a firearm in a store and asked to leave. Whether the store is posted in...
