Quote Of The Week

"By calling attention to 'a well regulated militia,' the 'security' of the nation, and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms,' our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important." - John F. Kennedy (Senator) Statement: Know Your Lawmakers, Guns, April 1960, p. 4 (1960)

Liberal Gun Reporter: The Media Is Not Covering Solutions That Could Prevent Mass Shootings. . .And They Don't Involve Gun Bans :: 11/12/2018

Often times, the media is just dreadful when it comes to reporting on firearms and Second Amendment issues. They continue to misname, misreport, and get parts of guns laws just wrong. Is it deliberate? It’s hard to suggest otherwise. This isn’t the first rodeo and the fact that laws that have been on the books for decades, like 18-year-olds being able to buy long guns, are treated like some shocking discovery a la Watergate continues to be an embarrassing moment for the elite media. It’s all about the narrative.

It's Unconstitutional: UVA Student Files Lawsuit Challenging Handgun Purchase Law :: 10/27/2018

It’s the law. You can buy rifles and shotguns at 18, but for a handgun—it’s 21. It’s the same across most states. In the wake of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting last February, some states—like Vermont and Florida—have increased the age limit for all gun sales to 21 years of age. The shooting, which left 17 people dead, spurred another intense wave of anti-gun activism, which as been mostly beaten back.  Yet, the anti-gun movement did score some wins with these pieces of legislation, which effectively deprived law-abiding adults the right to bear arms. It’s unconstitutional and yes—that provision in Florida’s law has been challenged, though it’s a lawsuit that’s most likely going to take years to resolve.
