Quote Of The Week

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!" - Samuel Adams, speech to the State House in Philadelphia, 1776

More Guns, Less Crime In California’s Concealed Carry Capitol :: 07/17/2019

One of the fundamental beliefs of gun control activists is that “more guns equals more crime”.  The only problem is that isn’t true.  At all.  There are somewhere around 400-million privately owned firearms in the United States, and while that number has soared over the past few decades, violent crime rates have declined dramatically.  The same holds true for concealed carry and violent crime.  It’s estimated there are now more than 17-million concealed carry licensees across the country, and violent crime continues to drop.  In Florida, for example, the homicide rate was 11.4 per 100,000 people when right to carry laws went into effect in 1987.  By 2017, there were well over one million concealed carry holders in the state, and the homicide rate had fallen to 5.0 per 100,000.

New Zealand Encounters Problems Enforcing Gun Ban without Registration :: 07/17/2019

New Zealand -(Ammoland.com)- New Zealand attempted controls on firearms ownership from 1845 to 1885. It was not very effective.  From 1885 to 1912, the arms control law was generally a dead letter. From 1912 to 1945 arms control was again attempted, primarily as a means of preventing revolution. From 1945 to 1965, there was again a peaceful enjoyment of firearms with few controls in New Zealand. There were registration controls on the books, but they proved ineffective. Because of increasing crime rates, from the middle 1960's to 1983, the New Zealand police struggled with the ineffective registration system.  The information was obtained from the 1997 study of its gun control history.

New Study Claims Gun Control Reduces Child Deaths. About That… :: 07/16/2019

Over the last day or so, headlines all over the media were touting this new study that supposedly proves that states with strict gun control have fewer “pediatric” deaths from firearm misuse. I put “pediatrics” in quotes because this term is used to apply to anyone under the age of 21, which means a lot of adults fall into this category.

Lawsuit Filed Over California's Ban On Gun Sales To People Under 21 :: 07/03/2019

California is one of a handful of states that decided to make it illegal for an 18-year-old to exercise their constitutional right to keep and bear arms in the wake of the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The thinking, if you can call it that, is that by banning people under 21 from buying a gun, we will be able to prevent some percentage of mass shootings.
