Sorry, NYTimes, But There's Only One Constitution :: 10/17/2020

The left’s descent into malevolent and feigned ignorance on the topic of judicial originalism took another plunge downward into the abyss on Friday with the publication of Jamelle Bouie’s latest column for the New York Times, entitled “Which Constitution Is Amy Coney Barrett Talking About?” Bouie claims that in actuality, we really have two Constitutions; the one we all know about that was ratified in 1787, and the Constitution that came about as a result of the Civil War in the 1860s.


80 Percent Silencers, the Political Ramifications of Mass Ownership :: 10/16/2020

U.S.A.-( In the first two parts of this on home made silencers series, I wrote of how we arrived at the current situation, historically, and what exists today, in terms of the technology and legal system, for individuals to make their own silencers utilizing the ATF Form 1.

Domestic Violence And Gun Control Claims Don't Match Reality :: 10/16/2020

Domestic violence is a horrible thing, something that we should all work to remove from the planet. The idea of someone who claims to love someone else hurting that person and continuing to do so over and over again…it just doesn’t make any sense. Then again, rationality often goes out the window when emotion gets involved, and 99 times out of 100, this is about emotion.


Follow the Law :: 10/16/2020

I've been holding back for a long time, readers and friends. This subject makes me angrier than any other and raises my blood pressure, which, at my age, I can ill afford. However, now that we're well into the process of seating another Supreme Court Justice -- one who declares that she upholds the law as originally written -- it is long past time to apply a little of this originalism, this textualism, where the Second Amendment is concerned.


Gun Groups Sues Pennsylvania Over Gun Law Discriminating Against Young Adults :: 10/16/2020

BELLEVUE, WA – -( The Second Amendment Foundation today sued Col. Robert Evanchick, commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police in his official capacity in a challenge of state statutes that prohibit law-abiding young adults from carrying firearms for self-defense and prevents them from acquiring a state license to carry (LTCFR) because of their age.


Man Arrested For Firing Shot While Chasing Rittenhouse :: 10/16/2020

Defense attorneys for 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse have consistently maintained that their client was acting in self-defense when he shot and killed two men during unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August, arguing that the teenager was being chased by a group of people, including one man who fired a shot into the air while pursuing Rittenhouse before the teen was cornered by Joseph Rosenbaum, who was reaching for Rittenhouse’s rifle when he fired at Rosenbaum in self-defense.


No, Joe Biden, Cops Can't Just Shoot People in the Leg :: 10/16/2020

During ABC's town hall event with former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic Party's presidential candidate provided a garbled response to a question about criminal justice reform. In particular, he wrongly suggested that when police fire their weapons at suspects, they could shoot to wound instead of shooting to kill.


ATF Suspends Cease And Desist Order For Maker Of Honey Badger Pistol :: 10/15/2020

It’s not a full reversal of the ATF’s decision classifying Q, LLC’s Honey Badger pistol as a short-barreled rifle, but it’s a step in the right direction. That’s according to Josh Savani, NRA-ILA’s director of research and information, who joins me on today’s Bearing Arms’ Cam & Co. with an update on latest efforts to rein in the agency’s abuses.


Biden Court Packing Could Kill Second Amendment Forever :: 10/15/2020

The purpose of the Supreme Court, as it’s used here in this country at this time, is to determine whether or not legislation is constitutional or not. The same is true for lower federal courts as well. They’re supposed to take the Supreme Court’s rulings and apply them evenly across other cases, then judge on the constitutionality of new issues as they arise until SCOTUS rules differently.


GUEST ESSAY: Second Amendment rights at stake in November :: 10/15/2020

For all sportsmen and gun owners: This article is to inform you of certain facts concerning the presidential election scheduled for Nov. 3, 2020. It might be the most important election in our lifetimes. For those readers who enjoy my outdoor columns you know I generally stay away from political subjects. But this column is simply too important not to cover.


Who Would Biden Appoint? Andrew Cuomo as Attorney General :: 10/15/2020

New York/Delaware/United States – -( Who is elected President matters – and not just because the President signs legislation and has the bully pulpit at his (or someday, her) disposal. It also matters because the President of the United States can appoint officials to the Cabinet, and those are often the people who would make a lot of the policy decisions.

Giffords Launches New Group Of Anti-Gun Gun Owners :: 10/14/2020

The National Rifle Association has long been the boogieman for anti-gunners. They’re perpetually convinced that if the NRA were gone, or at least countered, they could usher in their anti-gun Utopia and all would be right with the world.


Gun Control Activist's "Incremental Change" Still Violates 2A Rights :: 10/14/2020

Gun control activists are generally of the same mind about the end result of their agenda: a gun-free society or one where gun ownership is a privilege doled out to only a select few. How they get there, however, still results in some intra-movement disagreements. On the one hand, there are guys like historian Allan Lichtman, who calls for repealing the Second Amendment in a new book (no, I won’t be running out to buy a copy). On the other hand you’ve got activists like Nancy Farrar Halden, a longtime advocate for gun control laws who argues for a more incremental approach.


New Trump Ad Reminds Voters: Biden's Coming For Your Guns :: 10/14/2020

Throughout their campaign, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris haven’t been saying much about their plan to ban commonly-owned firearms and ammunition magazines if elected. Heck, even gun control groups like Everytown for Gun Safety are running ads in support of Democratic politicians that don’t don’t mention gun control at all. That’s smart politics in a year when Americans are buying firearms in record numbers, but the Trump campaign is out with a new ad this week reminding gun owners what’s at stake in this year’s election.


ACB, The Right To Vote, & The Right To Keep And Bear Arms :: 10/13/2020

Anti-gun senators like Dick Durbin of Illinois and California’s Dianne Feinstein spent Tuesday morning doing all they could to portray Judge Amy Coney Barrett as a judicial extremist and activist judge when it comes to the Second Amendment as Barrett’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings entered the question and answer phase. Durbin in particular tried to hammer Barrett on her dissent in a case called Kanter vs. Barr, in which Barrett argued that a felony conviction for a non-violent crime shouldn’t automatically result in a lifetime loss of the right to keep and bear arms.


Antis Alarmed That ACB Confirmation Could Be 'Huge Setback for Gun Safety' :: 10/13/2020

U.S.A.-( As the contentious confirmation hearings begin for Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett, anti-gun groups are voicing concerns she will endanger so-called “gun safety laws” and headlines in various publications perpetuate what is essentially a myth about restrictive gun control, while a George Mason University professor has just published a lengthy Liberty & Law Research Paper supporting the notion of individual gun rights and the necessity of the Second Amendment.


Why "Originalism" Doesn't Just Protect Your Right To Own A Musket :: 10/13/2020

There’s been no shortage of laughable attempts to criticize Judge Amy Coney Barrett over the past couple of days, but one of the dumbest takes that I’ve run across (besides the odd fixation on Barrett’s ladybits) is the idea that because Barrett’s judicial philosophy is one that takes the original meaning of the Constitution as the lodestar in all decisions, this somehow means that the Second Amendment should only protect the right to own a musket.
