VideoBrief Dozens of armed San Antonians gathered outside the San Antonio Police Department's west substation to protest the treatment of one of their members by officers and to take aim at a controversial city law. On March 31, Henry Vichique was walking home with his loaded rifle slung over his shoulder. Someone called 911 and when police arrived they asked the 19-year-old to put his weapon down.

Otis McDonald, 1933-2014: Fought Chicago's gun ban
Chicago Tribune
Otis McDonald forever will be known as the man who brought down Chicago's gun ban. After a long illness, he died April 4, at the age of 80. The landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision that bears his name forced Chicago to fall in line with the rest of the country and allow citizens to keep firearms in their homes for self-defense. The justices' 5-4 decision in 2010 said the Second Amendment did indeed apply to the states, effectively ending the city's nearly three-decade handgun ban.

The common sense language of gun control
Bearing Arms
Words have more power than just about anything. Words can get us married. Words can get us thrown out of bars. Words (in the form of outrageous lies) can get people elected to political office. In fact, words have the power to change a discussion to a completely different topic. As an example, look what words have done to the pro-choice/pro-life discussion. If an extraterrestrial NSA analyst was listening in on that debate, they might assume that the argument was over whether women had the right to buy Flintstone vitamins since the language speaks more to "healthcare" than pregnancy and abortion issues.

The Washington Times
A soldier who survived the gruesome murders at Fort Hood recently penned a letter to Texas lawmakers, urging them to prevent another tragedy from happening again by allowing soldiers to carry personal firearms on base. "Stripped of my God-given Right to arm myself, the only defensive posture I had left was to lie prostrate on the ground, and wait to die," writes First Lieutenant Patrick Cook of the 49th Transportation Battalion, who witnessed the massacre first hand.
