25 States Have Now Gotten Out of Our Way :: 05/19/2022

Biden fumbles gun control messaging in Buffalo: "We have enough laws on the books" :: 05/17/2022
Well this can’t be the takeaway that Joe Biden’s anti-gun allies were hoping for when the president flew to Buffalo to meet with elected officials and victims and family of the shooting at a Tops grocery store this past weekend in which ten people were murdered and three others injured. Biden was supposed to put the pressure on Congress to hold a vote on his gun control proposals, including his sought-after ban on modern sporting rifles and “large capacity” magazines.

Grocery store chain goes woke after permitless carry gets signed :: 05/16/2022
Almost a month ago residents of the Buckeye State celebrated the passage and signing of permitless carry into law. Supporters of freedom and our fundamental right to keep and bear arms know and understand this new law does not increase who may or may not be in possession of firearms, it simply removes restrictions from the law abiding to do so. Permitting is akin to a poll tax and the removal of need to have a permit to possess a firearm in public aligns the law closer with attaining a non-infringed status. That all being said, not everyone is celebrating this real commonsense measure. A popular grocery chain in Ohio, Meijer, just after the signing of the permitless carry law posted “no guns allowed” signs on their doors.
