Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee Embraces Heller and Originalism During Senate Hearings

Judge Neil M. Gorsuch, President Trump’s pick to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme court, asserted during his confirmation hearings this week that Scalia’s landmark Second Amendment opinion in District of Columbia v.

Record gun sales followed by record low accidental deaths

In 2016, there were approximately 27 million (27,000,000) firearms sold. In 2015, 23 million guns changed hands.

Last week on these pages I wrote about an emailer’s experience flying on Delta airlines out of Norfolk , VA to St. Louis with a checked firearm. It seems he had been given some information he had never heard before, and the process was different than he had...

House Bill 142 seeks to repeal requirements that, when detained for a law-enforcement purpose, a concealed carry licensee must "promptly inform" an approaching law enforcement officer that the licensee is a licensee and is carrying a concealed handgun.

"Ohio Gun Owners" is not here to help

Recently, a group calling itself "Ohio Gun Owners" has been sending fundraising emails to gun owners around the state. The emails are signed by "Executive Director Chris Dorr" and claim that the "Ohio Constitutional Carry Act" is about to be introduced.
