Ohio Pushes To Become Next Constitutional Carry State :: 12/16/2021
It’s not likely to happen before the end of the year, but the chances of Constitutional Carry taking effect in Ohio are much stronger today than they were just a few days ago. On Wednesday the state Senate in Columbus approved a bill removing the requirement that legal gun owners obtain a government-mandated permission slip before carrying a concealed firearm (Ohio already allows for the open carrying of a firearm without the need for a permit), sending the bill over to the state House for approval.
Poll: Americans Increasing Concerned Over Violent Crime :: 12/16/2021
One of the topics that has dominated headlines all across the nation over the last two years is violent crime. From the moment the George Floyd riots kicked off, violent crime began to spike all across the nation. Despite months of people basically being locked in our homes, we still managed to reach a homicide level the 90s would have appreciated.
California Sheriff Indicted In Concealed Carry Bribery Scandal :: 12/15/2021
The investigation into Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith’s office has been underway for well over a year, and has already led to criminal charges being filed against two of her top deputies, but now a grand jury has indicted the sheriff herself for her alleged involvement in a pay-to-play bribery scheme involving the issuance of rarely-granted concealed carry permits in exchange for cash and gifts.
Letitia James Wants NY To Craft Law Similar To CA Proposal :: 12/15/2021
New York Attorney General Letitia James has no affection for the Second Amendment. To her, it’s an obstacle, something to try and get around so she and people like her can pass all the gun control in the world. She views the NRA the same way, which is why she’s trying to destroy that organization.
The Law Is on Our Side: Using Gun Laws and Court Decisions to Our Advantage :: 12/15/2021
As gun-rights advocates, we must seize and maintain the moral and intellectual high ground. We already understand the tactical and practical costs of the spectrum of gun-control proposals and the equipment that gun-controllers seek to regulate. But we must also understand the law. The good news is that the law favors us.
Pro-Gun Groups Should Be Recruiting Candidates. Too :: 12/14/2021
One of the best ways to defend the Second Amendment is to elect pro-gun candidates to office. That’s easier said than done, though, because some places are outright hostile to gun rights. They believe that our rights are irrelevant and that restricting them will lead to peace and prosperity.
Secret Lists That Bar Gun Ownership A Big Problem :: 12/14/2021
There are a handful of people who are legally forbidden to own a firearm. These include convicted felons, domestic abusers, and those the courts have determined are mentally unfit for firearm ownership. The names of those are essentially kept on a list, one you can’t really look to see if you’re on. That makes it a secret list, one you can only find out you’re on by trying to buy a gun and being denied.
Sheriff Worried Constitutional Carry Will Lead To Less Cash For His Office :: 12/14/2021
To me, this is far more of an argument in favor of getting rid of all government-imposed fees on the exercise of a constitutionally protected right, but Mobile County Sheriff Sam Cochran apparently believes that funding his office off the hard-earned money of gun owners who want to lawfully carry a firearm for self-defense is hunky dory. In fact, Cochran sounds far more concerned about losing concealed carry application fee money than he does about any of his constituents being priced out of a right.

Stop Blaming Guns For Surge In Violence :: 12/13/2021
Over the last year or so, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in violent crime, particularly homicides. Yes, most of these have also involved guns. I won’t pretend facts don’t exist, after all.
"You've Reached 911, Please Hold..." :: 12/13/2021
U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- A standard talking point of gun prohibitionists is that in these modern times, ordinary people don’t need their own firearms because the police will protect them from criminals. Last year, no less than David Chipman, President Biden’s failed nominee to lead the ATF– employed then as a senior policy advisor for the Giffords anti-gun group – mocked first-time gun owners as delusional because the “zombies” weren’t about to attack.
Boulder, CO Surrenders Appeal of Assault Weapon Loss :: 12/12/2021
Since March, the City of Boulder has been looking for ways to reverse its defeat in the NRA-ILA supported case challenging Boulder’s unlawful bans against commonly owned “assault weapons” and magazines capable of accepting more than ten rounds. This week, the City of Boulder finally abandoned its appeal of the lower court decision striking Boulder’s unlawful hardware prohibitions. Because Boulder’s appeal was dismissed with prejudice, Boulder cannot attempt to relitigate this case in the future.
Rittenhouse Got the South Africa Treatment :: 12/12/2021

LA District Attorney: Criminals Are The Real Victims :: 12/11/2021
In California, there’s a mechanism prosecutors can use to punish people found guilty of certain crimes more. These sentence enhancements basically add years to various criminals’ sentences. Of course, they can’t just be handed out like nasty candy. It has to go through the judge and so on, but it’s a useful tool.

Stanford’s John Donohue on Guns, Mass Shootings, and the Law in the U.S. :: 12/11/2021
