NY: Governor Cuomo Vetoes Knife Law Reform… Again!

On 24 October, 2017, Governor Andrew Cuomo vetoed bill A. 5667A, a reform of New York State’s antiquated and misused gravity knife law.

9th Circuit: You Can OWN Guns But Have No Inherent Right To BUY Guns

The 9th Circuit does not think the 2nd Amendment protects the commerce of firearms.  This is one of the most blatant judicial activist gun control grabs I have seen in a while.  I shouldn’t be surprised that it comes from California, the state that banned lead ammunition.

In Advance of Hurricane Irma, Government Sanctioned Gun Confiscation Begins

It strains credulity that anyone but the most naive or ignorant person can believe that gun control in general and gun registration in particular is anything but a scheme by the government to allow them to come and confiscate your guns.  This is even more evident when the threat of a hurricane is being exploited in order to enact said gun confiscation.

Arrival of a Gun Blogger in Australia

Australia has very strict gun laws. Some would say they are more restrictive than most of the rest of the world. For example, toy guns that look like a real gun have the same penalties attached, and the same restrictions applied, as real guns.

Arizona Confiscates guns of 8 Chinese Students Because They Got Less Expensive Hunting License

Arizona is one of the most gun friendly states in America. A Constitutional carry state freely allowing open carry with no registration scheme in place.
