Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Peruta Case on Second Amendment

On Monday, 26 June, the Supreme Court officially denied the petition for a write of certiorari. The Ninth Circuit denial of Second Amendment rights outside the home will stand.

Number of Carry Permits tops 15 million in 2017

In July, 2016, the number of concealed carry permits in the United States was over 14.5 million. The number was growing rapidly during the election year. It is now over 15 million, and likely much higher. A few states require a permit for both open and concealed carry.

One Week Since Trump Won…And With Him America

I think Trump will be good for America for a number of reasons, but when it comes to the 2nd Amendment, I truly believe that the election of Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton has all but saved it from extinction. Or rather, saved patriots from having to literally fight for the right.

Anti Gun AG Kathleen Kane Finally Finds Her Fate After Being Found Guilty For Abuse of Power

Democrat, gun control advocate and former Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Kathleen Kane thought she was above it all while she jerked around the citizenry, shredding our rights and abusing her office.

National Park Service: Discharging Firearms for Self Defense Illegal

The National Park Service is giving bad legal advice to people who visit their web page and attempt to find out about firearms policy at various national parks.

Radical AG of Virginia undermines the 2nd Amendment for HALF the country

In only the latest display of gun control zealotry, gun hating Democrat Attorney General Mark Herring has unilaterally revoked the concealed carry reciprocity agreements Virginia had with 25 states.

This is What New York Crazy Bleeding Over Into Pennsylvania Looks Like: Raising Kane

When voters are suckered into voting for a candidate backed by billionaire gun hater Michael Bloomberg, they really shouldn’t be surprised when she makes it her priority to undermine the 2nd Amendment and follows lockstep with marching orders coming from the Bloomberg command center. Bloomberg backed crony, Kathleen Kane, is the Attorney General of Pennsylvania.  Kane, as you might have recalled in earlier articles here, received a PERFECT score from CeasefirePA, the local radical gun control group in the commonwealth.  In order to receive a perfect score, Kane would have had to answer that she is a little tougher than the Gestapo in her desire to stamp out the 2nd Amendment. Over the past 2 years she has went on a jihad against reciprocity agreements with other states, including Florida and Utah. But the greatest umbrage is that now she out right REFUSES to do her job. Allow me to explain....

Hillary Clinton…a history of gun hate just in time for 2016

It may come as no surprise to my readers that I do not care for Hillary Clinton.  She comes off as just slimy and I don’t trust her.  And heck, Al Rove may be right and she does have brain damage from a fall in 2012. So it comes as no surprise that Clinton has gone full on gun hate and thinks that WE…the people…are the problem. Here’s what she said at the National Council for Behavioral Health conference: “I think again we’re way out of balance. We’ve got to rein in what has become almost an article of faith that almost anybody can have a gun anywhere at any time. And I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people.” So our belief in liberty and freedom from tyranny is something that needs to be “reined in.”  Interesting. Here are some interesting...

Oklahoma Judge Makes Strong Argument to Repeal SAFE Act and Gun Bans

They say politics make the strangest bedfellows. Ironically, a liberal activist judge in Oklahoma has once again furthered the judicial basis to strengthen 2nd Amendment rights of Americans…completely unintentionally. While ruling to gut not only the Constitution of Oklahoma but also to force the Okie state to recognize marriage licenses from other states, U.S. District Judge Terrence Kern forwarded the 2nd Amendment. You see, the voters of Oklahoma voted to amend their state constitution to specify that marriage is between a man and a women.  Apparently, states rights don’t really matter to Judge Kern when he can just imagine that the issue of marriage is somehow in the US Constitution.  It’s not. But let’s pretend that Kern’s ruling that the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment is somehow relevant to gay marriage. I say it like that because marriage can be viewed like tax breaks.  A state may dictate...

The Hypocrisy Of The 14th Amendment When Not Applied To Gun Rights

Once again an activist judge has disenfranchised the will of voters. This time in Utah, where voters in 2004 overwhelmingly voted to ban gay marriage, a radical judged cited the 14th Amendment as reason to usurp the ballot box to impose his own will upon the people of the Beehive State. Like in California before, the silly notion that VOTING should actually count for anything is a foreign notion to these radical judges. What is worse than their legislating from the bench is the hypocrisy of their reasoning. U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby declared in his ruling that the voter passed initiative declaring that marriage is defined as being between a man and a woman is unconstitutional based off of the 14th Amendment. My issue with using the 14th Amendment by radical judges is that they apply it unfairly, pushing forward their own liberal agenda while in the same...

My problem with the Utah CCW Permit

You would think that a state founded by people who faced government oppression would have a healthy distrust of the Federal Government. After being driven from their homes in the east, having their First Amendment rights stripped, and having their territory whittled away by DC cartographers in order to minimize their influence and power in government, one might imagine the state of Utah would be a little less willing to play ball with the Federal Government.   Utah just passed the 500,000 mark for issuing concealed carry permits.  That’s about 25% of the population of the state. That doesn’t mean that 1 in 5 Utahns are walking around armed, though that’d be a great start.   Around 60% of those permits are for out of state residents who live in places that their state license might not grant them a great deal of reciprocity.  A Utah CCW will get...

Surprising exemption in Illinois for out of state CCW holders

As you may know, Illinois was the final holdout of states that officially barred its citizens the right to keep and bear arms.  With the recent override of Gov. Quinn’s veto last month, Illinois has finally shed the biggest hurdle of its unconstitutional ways and now allows concealed carry. While there are some hoops that must still be jumped through for the people of Illinois in order to get their CCW (16 hour class, still need a FOID card) Illinois has leapt ahead of other anti-rights states, such as New York and Hawaii, by becoming a shall issue state. If you are not barred by law then the issuing authority MUST give you a CCW.  In states like Hawaii, New York and California some areas are a de facto no-issue area because discretion is given to the issuing authority and if they hate the 2nd Amendment then you’re going...
