It is Time for Gun Owners to Get Political :: 02/04/2016

We have a million new gun owners each month.  Welcome, but there is more to being a gun owner than buying ammunition.  Democrat politicians recently proposed ridiculous regulations on guns and gun owners.  Gun sales soared, but I think that is the wrong response.  Gun owners need to get political to protect their rights.

Fourth Circuit Strikes Down Maryland's 'Assault Weapon' and 'High Capacity' Magazine Bans :: 02/04/2016

Heller, 554 U.S. 570, 635 (2008), and we are compelled by Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago, 561 U.S. 742 (2010), as well as our own precedent in the wake of these decisions, to conclude that the burden is substantial and strict scrutiny is the applicable standard of review for Plaintiffs’ Second Amendment claim.”
