  1. Yesterday, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed House Bill 2310 with a vote of 15-0. It allows those who have already taken online firearms training prior to January 1st, 2021, to use it towards their carry permit application for a limited amount of time. HB 2310 previously passed the House with an overwhelming bipartisan majority of 81-17. Please contact your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT HB 2310. House Bill 2310, sponsored by Delegate Chris Runion (R-25), allows individuals who completed online firearms training prior to January 1st, 2021, but were prohibited from appeari
  2. Yesterday, the House Public Policy Committee heard House Bill 1369, to improve the ability of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves and their loved ones. Please ask your state representative to SUPPORT this critical bill that improves self-defense in Indiana. House Bill 1369 allows any law-abiding adult who is legally eligible to obtain a carry permit, to carry a handgun without first having to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. It does not affect previously issued carry permits, and al

  4. Yesterday, the Senate State Affairs Committee passed two pro-gun bills, Senate Bill 100 and Senate Bill 111, outlined below. The measures now head to the Senate Floor for further consideration, and could be brought up for a vote as early as next week. Please contact your State Senator and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 100 and Senate Bill 111. Senate Bill 100 provides protections for gun stores, ranges, or any other entity that engages in the lawful selling or servicing of firearms, components, or accessories. SB 100 also prevents the prohibition, regulation, or seizure of citize
  5. All gun control bills share the same basic goal: a world in which fewer people own firearms. Some bills simply ban certain types of firearms or ammunition outright. Others place obstacles in the path of owning firearms or ammunition to make them more difficult and expensive to obtain, thereby shrinking the market for them. The fundamental flaw of these approaches is that they treat all law-abiding firearm owners as would-be criminals, when the reality is that most firearm-related assaults and homicides are committed by people who completely disregard the law, including laws against taking huma
  6. The Las Vegas Sun recently published a year-old interview with then-presidential candidate Joe Biden under the rationale that “the interview was worth publishing to give readers a better idea of where Biden will lead the country.” It stands to reason that giving the American people this information prior to an election would have given them more of an idea of where this particular candidate stands on an important constitutional right. In the interview, Biden said that “public sentiment for [gun control] is growing and support for the NRA is weakening.” In reality, Americans purchased
  7. Everyone has their own opinion, and sometimes strong feelings when it comes to the Second Amendment. But, I see how this is going, keep it civil. Don't make me step into this. Charlie I saw that my warning wasn't heeded - So I've hidden some post and required Mod approval to post replies. I had said don't make me take more drastic actions but I think this will now suffice. - CTW
  8. Republican lawmaker Marco Rubio has reintroduced legislation that seeks to suspend the Second Amendment rights of any person who has been investigated for "terrorism" related offenses within 10 years of attempting a gun purchase. The Senate bill, named the Terror Intelligence Improvement Act, was reentered last week in hopes of exploiting the hysteria surrounding the January 6th Capitol protests. The law intends to violate the civil liberties of American citizens who are not charged or convicted of a crime if somebody is deemed politically dangerous. If passed, the law will grant the
  9. The efforts of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee have already been documented here. She wants to enact draconian levels of gun control to such a degree that the Second Amendment would cease to protect the right to keep and bear arms. Jackson Lee’s bills would instead turn guns into a privilege that you’d have to count yourself lucky to enjoy. Frankly, she managed to hit every gun community concern just short of outright confiscation. As such, it’s unsurprising that there’s some…resistance to her efforts. Republicans fear the removal of foundational rights as Democrats seized control of th
  10. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki recently reiterated President Joe Biden’s desire to go after America’s millions of lawful gun owners when she said that Biden “would love to see action” on gun-control measures. “[President Joe Biden] has an ambitious plan in a lot of areas and on a lot of issues. I will say as vice president and even before that, the President took on the NRA twice and won. This is an issue he is personally committed to, we are, many in this building are personally committed to and I think he would love to see action on additional gun-safety measures,” said Psaki whe
  11. The city of Philadelphia is currently arguing in court that residents have no Second Amendment right to have their carry permit applications processed in a timely manner. At the same time, however, criminals in the City of Brotherly Love are making it clear that the city’s gun laws are no impediment to them. On Friday, 45-year old Dean Bloodsworth was arrested and charged with carrying a gun without a license. As it turns out, this isn’t Bloodsworth’s first run in with the law. According to authorities, Bloodsworth has thirty prior arrests and convictions on his record. “He fought t
  12. A few days ago the Heritage Foundation released a lengthy report on the fight for our right to keep and bear arms entitled “Conservative Defense of the Second Amendment Falls Short: Needs-Based Defense No Longer Sufficient to Preserve Citizens’ Right to Self-Defense” authored by former congressman Bob Barr. While the report is far too long to quote in its entirety here, I’d encourage every Second Amendment activist to look over Barr’s study, which makes the argument that gun owners don’t have to justify their exercise of the right to keep and bear arms. Instead, “the onus is—and should re
  13. Last November, Bill Blair, the federal Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, refused to answer questions about the costs associated with the Liberal Government’s gun ban and confiscation program imposed by Order-in-Council on May 1, 2020. Minister Blair’s department is responsible for implementing the ban and overseeing the confiscation of previously lawful firearms from millions of Canadian hunters, sports shooters, farmers and hobbyists before a two-year “amnesty” period ends on April 30, 2022. An initial cost estimate of CDN$250 million was given shortly before the
  14. Having tried and failed to impose a national firearm licensing and registration scheme on an unwilling American public for more than half a century, gun control advocates have spruced up the policy for the 21st century. In a paper titled “A Decentralized and Encrypted National Gun Registry,” a group of Brown University researchers working with Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) advanced a gun licensing and registration scheme where cryptography would purportedly protect gun owners’ data from criminal and government overreach. In fact, the proposal failed to address the primary reasons gun owners oppose f
  15. Those who stay involved in the efforts to defend the Second Amendment have always known President Joe Biden is, to put it lightly, no friend to gun owners. During his campaign for the White House last year, the legacy media did everything they could to conceal that fact. The Las Vegas Sun recently revealed that it went so far as to bury an interview with candidate Biden that showed not just his disdain for our right to keep and bear arms, but his utter lack of comprehension of reality. The interview took place on January 11, 2020, and was published last week—more than one year later—with
  16. U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Action must be taken to curtail carelessness among gun owners,” a Monday Las Vegas Sun editorial urges. “Last week, the Transportation Security Administration announced that McCarran International Airport ranked among the top 10 U.S. airports where guns were found in carry-on baggage or improperly packed last year.” “Throughout 2020, TSA caught approximately 10 firearms per million passengers screened as compared to about 5 firearms per million passengers screened in 2019,” the agency confirmed. TSA officers discovered a total of 3,257 firearms on passengers or
