Obama's gun control — Not working out so well in Chicago
Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Chicago is the gun control capital of the United States. It has long been characterized by politicians like President Barack Obama who not only view concealed carry laws with disdain, but even oppose the individual right to keep and bear arms. Obama even opposed the right to use guns for self-defense in the home while he was a state senator in Illinois. And although Chicago's de jure gun ban was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court in the summer of 2010, legislators, city council members and others who share Obama's anti-gun passions are doing everything they can to keep a de facto ban in place.

Illinois county president drops bullet tax, but keeps gun fee
Guns.com    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Calling it a "compromise," Cook County, Ill., Board President Toni Preckwinkle announced that she would nix plans to tax ammunition a nickel-per-bullet in 2013, but would go ahead with the $25-per-gun tax on the purchase of firearms for county residents. The tax on guns, which is expected to generate as much as $600,000 in 2013, is part of a $2 million violence prevention package that is designed to address the county's exploding homicide rate. More

US court upholds ban on handgun sales to people under 21
Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The United States may ban federally licensed firearms dealers from selling handguns to people under age 21, a U.S. appeals court ruled recently, in a defeat for the National Rifle Association. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Houston rejected the NRA's argument that 18- to 20-year-olds had a right to buy the guns under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as well as the equal protection clause of the Fifth Amendment.

Now he tells us
NSSF    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Recently on the campaign trail in Iowa, President Barack Obama told his audience: "Trust matters. Iowa, you know me. I say what I mean and mean what I say. You could take a videotape of the things I say, (from) 10 years ago, 12 years ago and you'd say this is the same guy." Since he insists, take a look for yourself. More

Gun laws ring hollow with voters
USA Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What does USA Today's Editorial Board have in common with the majority of Americans? Not much, apparently, when it comes to effective public policy and sound politics. This newspaper bemoans a lack of debate over firearms ownership in this election, ignoring a fact that even most politicians now recognize. The vast majority of Americans treasure their constitutional freedom and they don't trust politicians who meddle with it. More



Shooting victim may sue gun maker
The Associated Press via The Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A former high school athlete who was shot in 2003 may sue the companies that made and distributed the handgun used in the crime under an appellate court ruling that gun control advocates say will keep irresponsible gun makers and sellers from taking advantage of a federal law shielding them from lawsuits. The ruling by the Appellate Division of the state Supreme Court reversed a lower court's 2011 dismissal of victim Daniel Williams' complaint, which accused Ohio gun maker Hi-Point and distributor MKS Supply Inc. of Ohio of intentionally supplying handguns to irresponsible dealers because they profited from sales to the criminal gun market.

The Associated Press via KSWT-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Gun 'buybacks' endanger citizens, help crooks and crooked officials
Ammo Land    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Forget that the city of Haverhill, Ma., never owned the guns in the first place, so the concept of conducting a "buyback" is a fraud right from the start. The entire business of encouraging citizens to turn in guns for "gift cards" (again a misnomer, since it's an exchange, not a present) endangers participants and can actually enable criminals. "The idea is to cut down on the amount of potential guns that could be stolen during house breaks," the mayor is quoted as saying. If someone were breaking into their house, would the people he's appealing to not wish to have the means to protect themselves and their loved ones? Would Hizzoner? More
