Is This Mere Coincidence or a Cultural Change? :: 12/11/2018

Lots of us are disappointed after the last election. Some of us turned off the news for a few weeks as we recovered. I’ve noticed a series of unexpected pleasant surprises during that time. The seeds of serendipity were planted long before the midterm campaigns began.

Ruling That the Second Amendment Is a Second-class Right Faces Dissent :: 12/11/2018

The ruling by the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last week not only perfectly exposed the damage Obama appointees have done to precious constitutional rights but also showed how Trump appointees are already laboring to repair that damage.


Why Are Red Flag Laws Garnering Such Bipartisan Support? :: 12/11/2018

Red Flag Laws, the more colloquial name for extreme risk protection orders (ERPOs), are all the rage and have been since Parkland. Anti-gunners have latched onto them as a means of perhaps creating gun control, at least for a handful of individuals.


Despite Strict Gun Laws, California Homicide Rate Up 18 Percent :: 12/10/2018

We’re constantly told that gun control laws work, that they somehow prevent bad people from doing bad things. At least with guns, if the anti-gunner is trying to be semi-honest.

What the Fake History of Guns Can Teach Us :: 12/10/2018

In 2000, Emory University history professor Michael Bellesiles published the book Arming America: The Origins of a National Gun Culture. The central argument of the book was that the culture of American gun ownership does not date back to the colonial era and, instead, emerged in the middle of the nineteenth century when technological advances made firearms more affordable.


Beyond State Control: Improvised and Craft-produced Small Arms :: 12/09/2018

When Governments Restrict Guns, People Make Their Own By the Millions :: 12/09/2018

Around the world, governments attempt to limit subjects' legal access to weapons—ostensibly to keep the peace, but in reality often done to minimize challenges to government power. And, around the world, those subjects defy such restrictions, often going so far as to manufacture weapons outside official channels. In fact, DIY firearms ranging in sophistication from muskets to grenade launchers exist in the millions across the planet, according to a new report that should (but won't) finally demonstrate to government officials the futility of efforts to disarm people who insist on being free.


DRGO: States' Rights and Gun Rights :: 12/08/2018

Should gun advocates embrace States’ Rights? In McDonald v Chicago, the Supreme Court incorporated the Second Amendment on the States.  “[T]he right of the People to keep and bear arms . . .” is now, indisputably, the uniform law of the land throughout the 50 states and D.C.

How Much Blood Would Leftists Be Willing To Shed To Disarm Patriotic Americans? :: 12/08/2018

My question for Congressjerk Eric Swalwell is pretty simple: “How many Americans would you murder to achieve your goal of disarming us?”


Yes, They ARE Coming For Your Guns :: 12/08/2018

Gun grabbers always claim that the newest infringement on the God-given right to self-defense protected by the Second Amendment is in the interest of “public safety” and is not another step down the slippery slope toward gun confiscation and disarming America.

Blaming the Second Amendment for Black Deaths a Tactic for Disarming All :: 12/07/2018

U.S.A. – -( “The Thanksgiving tragedy in Hoover, Ala., highlights an American problem: The deaths of black men, legally armed and who have committed no crime, at the hands of police,” The Christian Science Monitor observes. “At a time when the president and guns rights activists have suggested that ‘good guys with guns' are a solution for stopping mass shooters, some black gun owners are wondering if ‘helping while black' is too dangerous.”


Gun-Control Fails in California. . . .and We Lose :: 12/07/2018

Sociologists and criminologists rendered their verdict. Gun-control in California doesn’t work. That should have been obvious in hindsight.

Since Californians won’t change things at the ballot box, they are going to have to vote with their feet to restore their rights.

Surprise: Study Finds No Rise in Violent Crime Attributable to Adopting Right-to-Carry Laws :: 12/07/2018

As we’ve noted recently, much research purporting to demonstrate connections between access to guns or right-to-carry laws and increases in crime is seriously flawed.  Often it's an attempt to curtail or eliminate Americans’ rights under the Second Amendment rather than unbiased scientific research.
