Brady Campaign unveils recommendations to White House Gun Control Task Force    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Along with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's organization Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence is the most influential pro-gun control voice participating in the White House discussions on ways to prevent gun-related violence, including future mass shootings like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Given this fact, gun owners can assume that the gun control recommendations Vice President Joe Biden will present to President Barack Obama will mirror — to a large degree — what the Brady Campaign has released in its own set of policy changes to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and sociopaths.

The truth about 'Internet' gun sales
Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Anti-gun efforts to "ban" internet firearms sales often present the issue in a manner that would lead people to think firearms are being sold online in the same way people buy books or clothes. Simply click on the "Add to Cart" button, enter your credit card number and in a few days the gun shows up on your doorstep. But that is not true at all. All interstate gun sales must go through a federally licensed firearms dealer in the home state of the buyer. No firearm, regardless of how it is advertised, can be legally shipped interstate directly to the buyer. More

School plans to arm janitors with handguns
The Associated Press via WABC-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A rural school district in Ohio is drawing attention with its plans to arm a handful of its non-teaching employees with handguns — perhaps even janitors. Four employees in the Montpelier schools have agreed to take a weapons training course and carry their own guns inside the district's one building, which houses 1,000 students in kindergarten through 12th grade, school officials said. "It's kind of a sign of the times," Superintendent Jamie Grime said. More

When will we have ammo again?    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
David Higginbotham, a gun reviewer for, writes: "I was in Kansas during Christmas, hanging out with the in-laws, when Jacob (my right hand man for all things firearms related) sent me a text saying that I needed to buy up any available ammo. I thought about it for a while and then didn't. I was too busy watching It's a Wonderful Life again and again. What did I care? Now I feel like a bit of a dolt. As a review writer, I use up a lot of lead. For some guns, like the Savage Model 42, my ammo use is minimal. Other guns end up getting a much more thorough workout. I put more than 1,000 rounds through the Springfield Armory TRP 1911 before we ran the review. I run through buckets of ball ammo and boxes of the good stuff from companies like Hornady and Nosler."

No need to worry about having guns taken away
Log Cabin Democrat    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
"Obama is going to take your guns away." That is today's scare message, the 2013 version of Chicken Little hollering, "The sky is falling. The sky is falling." The president or Congress or the federal government are not going to take Americans' guns from them in the wake of another dreadful mass shooting. What is likely to happen is much talk, excessive posturing then perhaps some action like restoring the ban on large capacity magazines and the waiting period for buying handguns. There may become a waiting period for any firearm purchase. And none of the actions will stop the killing of people in this nation by pistols, rifles or shotguns. More

Why so few reports of legitimate self-defense?
Gun Reports    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Anti-gun New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was "half-right" when he told NBC's Jimmy Fallon that there is "scant coverage" of other firearms news, because there is virtually no coverage of self-defense uses every day, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms says. Bloomberg complained about the lack of attention paid by the press to "people who are killed by guns every day," according to Yahoo News. More
