Too Young or Too Old... To Own a Gun?

A common theme among anti-gun extremists is what we often refer to as the “Goldilocks” approach to limiting access to firearms by law-abiding citizens. Rather than admit that the ultimate goal is to disarm all Americans, those opposed to the Second Amendment create fictional arguments about why certain types of firearms, ammunition, or even accessories should be eliminated. In the 70s, the goal...

Lawsuits bear fruit again as courts put hold on Cincinnati's bump stock ban

Less than two weeks after Franklin County Common Pleas Court ordered a permanent injunction against the City of Columbus, forbidding it from enforcing its ban against so-called "bump stocks," Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Robert Ruehlman granted a temporary injunction blocking Cincinnati's ill-advised ban on the devices.

Op-Ed: Why I Joined the NRA After Writing Gun Control Articles

Years back, I was a staunch gun control advocate. Last week, I joined the NRA and the Gun Owners of America, and I’m looking to join more Second Amendment advocacy groups. How did this evolution take place? In 2014, I wrote articles for “The Huffington Post” titled “ If ISIS Had Committed the 11 School Shootings Since Sandy Hook, Congress Would Have Declared War ” and “ What Gun Advocates Should...

Clearing Up the Confusion About Ohio’s Knife Laws

Recently I received three different emails from readers and former students regarding Ohio’s often confusing knife laws. If I’m getting this many inquiries on the same topic, an explanatory article is in order. Keep in mind, I am not a lawyer. As such, this is not legal advice.

Op-Ed: It’s always the guns and never the mess we’ve created

Focus on the guns. If we can just keep everyone’s attention on the guns and the homicides, we don’t have to think about all the children whose lives have been destroyed in Chicago by drugs. All we have to do is get rid of assault weapons. That’s it. And maybe outlaw bump stocks. Focus on the guns and you don’t have to think about all the children on the streets whose parents are sitting in prison...

Judge Brett Kavanaugh Has Earned NRA Members’ Support

NRA members can feel confident throwing their enthusiastic support behind President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Throughout his time on the bench, Judge Kavanaugh has demonstrated deep respect for the Second Amendment as construed in Justice Antonin Scalia’s landmark decision in District of Columbia v. Heller . Moreover, his record on the Second...

SHOCK: Persons obtain 50 firearms without background check

According to so-called "common-sense" gun control extremists like Mark Kelley's "Americans for Responsible Solutions," all we have to do to keep criminals from gaining access to firearms is to mandate that a background check be done before all transfers of firearms. Pass "universal" background checks, we're told, close the "gun show loophole," we're told, and we can stop mass shootings! Indeed,...
