Quote Of The Week

"If by the liberty of the press were understood merely the liberty of discussing the propriety of public measures and political opinions, let us have as much of it as you please: But if it means the liberty of affronting, calumniating and defaming one another, I, for my part, own myself willing to part with my share of it, whenever our legislators shall please so to alter the law and shall chearfully consent to exchange my liberty of abusing others for the privilege of not being abused myself." - Benjamin Franklin, 1789

With Violence And Unrest Soaring, Support For Gun Control Plummets :: 08/13/2020

Actually, this is only shocking to gun control advocates, who I’m sure are stunned that Americans aren’t responding to looting, riots, and skyrocketing violent crime by demanding a ban on scary black guns and waiting periods for gun purchases. For the rest of us, it probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise that as violent crime (including both politically-motivated violence and street crime) is on the upswing, Americans don’t find the idea of more gun control laws nearly as compelling as they did just a few months ago.


With Philly Violence Lack Of Urgency A Good Thing :: 08/13/2020

Philadelphia is one of a plethora of American cities that have seen an influx of violence in recent months. That’s not really surprising. While it may be called “The City of Brotherly Love,” that love tends to be more of the abusive kind than anything else.

On today’s Bearing Arms’ Cam & Co, I sit down with Rick Tyler, the director of development for the California Rifle & Pistol Association, for a closer look at the longtime anti-gun activism of the new face of the Democratic Party.

NRA Files Lawsuit Against NY In Retaliation :: 08/07/2020

The state of New York is trying to kill the National Rifle Association. While the state may claim all sorts of things in their legal action against the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, the truth of the matter is that all they’re doing is in an effort to destroy an ideological opponent. Oh, they might say the NRA isn’t spending money appropriately, but do you think they really give a damn what happens to the money folks like us donate to the NRA? Do you think the state of New York actually cares about us and our efforts to protect our Second Amendment rights?


D.C. Files Suit Against NRA Foundation :: 08/07/2020

Federal Court Revives Second Amendment Lawsuit :: 08/06/2020

Wyoming State Supreme Court Won't Hear Preemption Case :: 08/05/2020

Preemption is something we’ve spent a fair bit of time talking about here. After all, it’s an important bit of legislation that prevents a patchwork of gun control laws that no one can keep track of.
