Why gun sales are on the rise in 2012
Guns & Ammo    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Gun sales were up in the U.S. during 2011. The good news for the industry is that business in 2012 promises to be just as good or even better.

January marks 20 straight months of increased NICS report requests. More

Bellevue's Second Amendment Foundation quickly fired off a rebuttal against a University of Texas law professor who sent an email in the wake of a deadly school shooting in Ohio that the incident was a "another typical exercise of the Second Amendment rights." The email, posted on a listserve, was intercepted by the Washington Free Beacon, and once publicized, it went viral across cyberspace. More

Federal judge severely limits Second Amendment rights
The Daily Caller    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Over the last few years, the Second Amendment has experienced somewhat of a rebirth, thanks largely to a pair of Supreme Court decisions: District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago. In these seminal decisions, the Supreme Court affirmed the understanding of the Founding Fathers that there is indeed an individual right to keep and bear arms, a God-given right to protect oneself that is guaranteed to us in the Second Amendment to our Constitution.

Another tragedy results from the Obama administration's 'Fast and Furious' scandal
Town Hall    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Attorney General Eric Holder recently told Congress that guns illegally supplied to drug cartels in Mexico — as part of the Obama administration's "Fast and Furious" scandal — would continue to show up at crime scenes "for years to come." Unfortunately, this is the most honest declaration to come out of Holder's Justice Department since this deadly scheme first surfaced. More

Second Amendment is not about militias
The Daily Courier (commentary)    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Walter Bull's letter on "College Students are Not Militia" is a grossly misinformed piece on the Second Amendment. In actuality, there are two sections to the Second Amendment. The Supreme Court has consistently ruled on: (1) An individual's right to own firearms and (2) that it is a federal right, and states cannot take away that right. More

Concealed weapon compromise reached in Oregon
Statesman Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Oregon House is poised to give final legislative approval to a compromise closing most records of concealed-handgun licensees and applicants, but allowing some disclosures. The Senate approved a rewritten version of House Bill 4045 on a 24-5 vote recently and sent it back to the House. Immediately afterward, the Senate rejected another bill that would have barred most guns from school grounds. Senate Bill 1594, which revived legislation that had languished in another committee, died with 15 votes against and 14 votes for it. Lawmakers were hoping to wrap up the 2012 session, ahead of the legal deadline. More
