AmmoLand News and I recently reported that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) went to, (“Raided”), Big Daddy Unlimited (BDU), and Rare Breed Triggers and seized their stock of forced reset triggers.


Shockingly, Everytown blames gun rights for gun deaths :: 01/21/2022

Most people don’t really know how to read a study. It’s not something we’re taught in school, after all. So, when a study that blasts gun rights comes out, most people take it as a matter of faith that it’s accurate. After all, these are the experts, right?


The US has banana republic–like voter ID laws :: 01/21/2022

Most Americans are simply unaware of how weak and haphazard our voter ID and absentee ballot laws are compared to those in other countries.  I want to do a quick overview of U.S. laws and then compare them to those in Europe, Canada, and Mexico.


Two States Aiming to Adopt Self-Defense Law Named After Kyle Rittenhouse :: 01/21/2022

A Tennessee legislator introduced a bill earlier this week named for Kyle Rittenhouse that would require the state to reimburse people who are acquitted on self-defense grounds after facing charges in homicide cases.


Beware Biden’s Desperate Anti-Gun Pivot, When All Else Fails Confiscate Guns! :: 01/20/2022

The Biden-Harris administration is trapped inside a hostile media spotlight, a victim of their own incompetence. They’re like a cornered animal – desperate for a way out, but clearly willing to settle for anything that would shift the public focus off of their ever-growing list of foibles. They’re a consistent bunch, that much is true. They consistently lurch from one self-inflicted crisis to another, while we pay the price for their mistakes.


How Technology Will Change Exercising the Second Amendment :: 01/20/2022

 It has been said that the one constant in the universe is change. That is certainly true when it comes to the technology involved in the right to keep and bear arms. Indulge a little stroll to 40 years ago.


Man with BB gun killed by police :: 01/20/2022

Anyone who has ever had a gun pointed at them can tell you that even a .22 looks like a .45 ACP in the heat of the moment. You don’t really break out the calibers and measure the bore diameter in that instant. You just assume it’s big enough to end you and act accordingly, which is why pointing a BB gun at police or anyone else who has a firearm is an epic failure of cognitive function.


New study on firearm related suicide can't prove what we all know :: 01/20/2022

A recent research letter concerning suicide by firearm highlights something that most gun owners already know. The short form of what was reported is that gun owners are not going to tell health care providers that they own firearms. Okay, that’s at least the conjecture that the authors of the paper were not willing outright say. The study involved looking at death due to suicide Between January 1, 2016, and December 31, 2019 in Washington State. The paper, Patient-Reported Firearm Access Prior to Suicide Death, does put a good deal of effort in extracting information from the Washington State death records and electronic health record data they had available. Some of this data was not considered “sensitive” enough to require consent from patients.


A 2A grassroots success story from New Jersey :: 01/19/2022

It’s one of the funny quirks of SHOT Show that you can travel thousands of miles and find a story from much closer to home. That’s the case with today’s Bearing Arms Cam & Co, where we’re featuring a conversation with Tony Simon, one of my favorite people in the world and the founder of and 2A4E (Second Amendment is for Everyone).


Can the DC Project be the 2A counter to Moms Demand Action? :: 01/19/2022

We’ve all become familiar with the gun control lobby’s group of red-shirted women demanding more infringements on our right to bear arms, but Moms Demand Action isn’t the only game in town when it comes to a female-centered movement dealing with gun ownership. Since 2016, the DC Project has been attracting a growing number of women who support the Second Amendment, and at this year’s SHOT Show, the group’s founder Dianna Mueller hosted a press event to help spread the word about the organization and its efforts around the country.


Growing the Gun Community in Unlikely Places :: 01/19/2022

We mentioned a Beverly Hills gun shop last week in an article about the continued increase in background checks and gun sales. We spoke with the proprietor of that shop, and he offered a very humanized take on a story often told with large numbers and broad strokes concepts.


The Other Big Lawsuit that Could Destroy the NRA :: 01/19/2022

Over the past several years, there has been much reporting and speculation over the lawsuit filed by New York Attorney General Leticia James calling for the dissolution of the National Rifle Association.


Alabama: Sheriff's Association Working With Anti-Gun Group Opposing Constitutional Carry :: 01/18/2022

Bobby Timmons, director of the Alabama Sheriff’s Association (ASA), is so opposed to acknowledging your inherent right-to-carry, and wants so badly to protect the revenue stream from permit fees, that he openly opposes the Second Amendment and allies with anti-gun extremists. He said in a media interview that the ASA is working with a Bloomberg-backed, national anti-gun group in order to oppose the constitutional carry legislation currently in the Alabama Legislature.


Convicted Felon Sold “Ghost Guns” to Undercover Agent on Multiple Occasions :: 01/18/2022

Mark Kelly's silence speaks volumes about his campaign strategy :: 01/18/2022

Gun control activists may have been defeated in their bid to install one of their own as the head of the ATF last year, but they’re hoping to be more successful at keeping one of their own in the U.S. Senate despite the prospect of a red-wave election come November.


Responding to Texas Incident, Biden Admits Gun Control Didn't Work :: 01/18/2022

In the aftermath of the Texas hostage incident, Joe Biden acknowledged that when criminals get their guns “on the street,” there is no way to stop them.


A Philadelphia Congresswoman Clings to Her Gun Control Delusions Even After Being 'Carjacked by Reality' :: 01/17/2022

Some people move away from utopian thinking after being “mugged by reality.” The latest evidence of this can be seen in leftists belatedly embracing the right of self-defense amid spiking violent crime rates and a dipping police presence.


Biden almost stumbles on truth about gun control :: 01/17/2022

President Joe Biden ran as one of the most anti-gun candidates in history. His only competition for that title came during his primary campaign against some of his competitors who pretty much just focused on gun control…and he gave them a run for their money.


Does Charging Oath Keepers With "Seditious Conspiracy" Save the “Insurrection” Narrative? :: 01/17/2022

Last Thursday, January 13, the U.S. Department of Justice set the Pelosi-Schumer Democrats and their allies in the media industrial complex abuzz with the announcement that Elmer Stewart Rhodes, III, the founder and leader of the organization known as Oath Keepers, along with 10 additional members of his group, has been indicted on charges of “Seditious Conspiracy and Other Offenses Related to U.S. Capitol Breach” of January 6, 2021. This latest DOJ action appears to have been calculated to fill in the conspicuous holes in the ludicrous media-driven conspiracy theory that the Capitol melee involving several hundred protesters was actually an insurrection coup organized by President Donald Trump and his nefarious co-conspirators in Congress.


Exercise your 2A rights? It could come up if you're on jury duty! :: 01/17/2022

When thinking of civil liberties in the United States, it’s quite easy to turn our attention towards the Bill of Rights to get a good grasp of what we’ve been endowed with by our creator. To the casual observer, perhaps a happy wanderer in the Union, they might talk about the freedom of speech or “pleading the fifth”. The breadth of each individual’s understanding of liberties is naturally filtered through the lens of which they view the world. My own view could be considered quite myopic, with an extreme focus on the Second Amendment, which is needed to protect all the rest. The First Amendment being important for all to be able to express themselves as they wish without government intervention. And in the unfortunate event if one has to “assert” their rights, they might be telling a peace officer I invoke or am availing myself of my 4th, 5th, and 6th Amendment rights. You can’t search me or my stuff, I’m not saying nothing, and I want my lawyer. Obviously there’s more than just that to our rights. What comes with these rights are responsibilities. Those responsibilities are actually rights too. It’s our right to be able to vote, but it’s also our civic duty. It’s also our civic duty to serve on a jury when called upon.
