    If you’re gay, it sometimes can be difficult to tell friends that you’re also a gun owner. Mark Steiger describes it as “coming out of the gun safe.” If you’re for both gay rights and gun rights, Steiger runs an organization you might want to join. He’s head of the Twin Cities chapter of the Pink Pistols, a shooting group open to people of any sexual orientation that encourages gun ownership among the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. It’s part social group, part gun-safety education provider and part advocacy organization devoted to preserving the rights of gays to protect...

    The first 57 seconds of James O’Keefe’s latest undercover video interview, of a Clinton delegate from California, confirms what many have long suspected: Hillary Clinton’s real goal of complete and total confiscation of all firearms from every American citizen is being hidden behind benign and persuasive phrases such as “common sense gun control” and “protect our families,” etc. It also reveals what happens when the “useful idiot” in the video learns that she has been exposed for what she is: a mouthpiece for the movement to disarm America and ultimately turn it into a totalitarian state. Most importantly it reveals...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- With mothers of police violence victims on the stage and anti-gun protesters in the streets, Hillary Clinton and Democrats are giving gun control and efforts to curb police violence a starring role at their summer convention. "They're too easily accessible to everyone, even children. You can go out on the street and get a gun," said Terrez McCleary of Philadelphia, who lost her 21-year-old daughter to gun violence in 2009 and was among a few hundred people held a rally against gun violence Tuesday in Philadelphia's Logan Square.

    No one on the Big Island has been issued a concealed carry license and that is unlikely to change any time soon in the wake of a recent Ninth Circuit Court ruling, attorneys say. The ruling made clear that states can continue to require applicants for concealed carry permits prove they have a need for the weapon, which is what Hawaii has been doing for years. “There is no Second Amendment right for members of the general public to carry concealed firearms in public,” the Ninth Circuit Court opined in the case of Peruta vs. San Diego.

    State officials have certified petitions that opponents of stricter gun regulations can now circulate in California to overturn recent laws that expanded background checks to buy guns and ammunition and attempted to curb the sale of rapid-reloading firearms. The effort could be a longshot, however, as more than 365,000 signatures are needed on each of six separate petitions by Sept. 29 to qualify for the November 2018 ballot. Barry Bahrami of Carlsbad submitted the petitions. He did not return phone or email messages Tuesday. Craig DeLuz, a lobbyist for the Firearms Policy Coalition, said he knows of no financial backers...

The suspect was hit multiple times and taken to the hospital in critical condition. While he was in surgery, detectives were out on the scene collecting evidence.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says the man told them he was parked outside a Malibu, California, home when Dre ordered him to leave and showed a gun. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, told sheriff's deputies he didn't have a gun and that the man was blocking his driveway. He says the man moved his car but parked nearby. He says the man drove off after Dre recorded video of him.

Here's some of the conversation taking place: 3RidersApproaching: SIG offers some very appealing 1911s in terms of features (front strap checkering, rounded butts, etc.) And their pricing is attractive. Relatively few models from Colt and Springfield come with front strap checkering (something that I have, over time, come to really appreciate after having bought a number of 1911’s that DON’T have it.) I’ve caught some drift here and there that SIG quality (perhaps regarding their non-1911 models?)...

    Terrorism fears appear to be pushing more Americans to buy guns. FBI data show this was the busiest June ever for firearms dealers. Tom Hand continues to be busy–at his gun and pawn shop in Daphne. “People are concerned with their own safety and are still interested in carrying guns for their own personal defense outside of their home,” said Tom Hand with Goldmine Pawn. The Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando last month marked the single largest mass shooting in American history. That helped make June the busiest June on record for gun dealers with background checks up nearly 40-percent...

    While congressional Democrats and Republicans go head-to-head over gun control, proponents of a smaller, often overlooked facet of the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms pursue a battle of their own—the right to carry a knife. Knife Rights, an Arizona-based advocacy group aimed at ridding states of existing bans on specific types of knives, is leading the fight against restrictive knife laws across the U.S. “Protecting knife rights is the second front in the defense of the Second Amendment,” Todd Rathner, director of legislative affairs at Knife Rights, told The Daily Signal.

I am sure that the seller is an upstanding guy and I understand that Colt is currently working on those letters, so...

Just the mention of the National Rifle Association Saturday prompted the room in Miami into a roar. At Brooklyn headquarters, aides smiled. This was, after all, the fight they wanted. Please, some thought, keep talking about guns. It was a fight that strategists saw as an upside: it calmed progressives’ furor over Kaine, seen in some circles as too moderate for a party still overcoming a passionate swoon with Bernie Sanders.

Both ruling parties, the center-right Christian Democrats (CDU) of Chancellor Angela Merkel and the center-left Social Democrats (SPD), agreed that more stringent laws were necessary to prevent copycat attacks.

Three young males, at least two of which had been drinking, approach a dwelling and pound on the door.  The door is locked. The resident "tried to communicate".  At least one continues to pound on the door.  The resident calls 911 to report an attempted break in. Someone (presumably the person pounding on the door)  breaks out some glass.  The resident, fearing a home invasion, fires through the door,...

But he stressed that he believes "limitations on the size of magazines and ammunition clips" is the first step to take.

Brown signed Assembly Bill 857, which imposes a new mandate on anyone who buys components that can be made into a fully functional firearm. Those weapons are not currently traceable in the same way as buying a fully operating firearm. Democrats pushed through the bill last month as part of a sweeping package of proposals inspired by recent shootings. Several of those bills, including an effort to impose new rules...

    At almost all other Trump events masked thugs attack Trump supporters and try to disrupt events. Leftist groups had threatened to block the streets and shut down the convention. There were demonstrations but almost no assaults. Do you think this is because demonstrators thought Trump supporters might be legally armed? Did the demonstrators not want to risk getting shot during one of their assaults?

    CNN commentator and liberal talking head Sally Kohn went after Donald Trump during his speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland Thursday night, slamming him for allegedly “profiling” people by bizarrely pointing out mass shootings committed by “white guys” armed with “AK-15s.” Which…well, isn’t a real thing. […] Kohn tried to correct her multiple embarrassing mistakes — most notably when she mixed up an AR-15 with an AK-47 — before once again berating “the right” for pointing out the fact that…well, she clearly knows nothing about guns. …

    Orlando Carry The Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando taught millions of ordinary citizens something very important. It confirmed for us that seventeen years after the Columbine massacre, we can still find ourselves penned inside a disarmed-victim slaughter zone by an armed maniac or maniacs, and while innocent people are bleeding to death and futilely calling for help, government law enforcement agency employees might decide to take a powder, set up a security perimeter, and then burn three irreplaceable hours while debating how best to attempt a rescue operation. And when it finally happens, the belated rescue operation might end up...

    In March of 2016, members of Michigan Open Carry (MOC) and Michigan Gun Owners (MGO) were manning a booth that they had rented in the DeVos Place Convention Center. They were openly carrying holstered pistols, which has never been against the law in Michigan, except for a small number of restricted areas.  While people with concealed carry permits may not carry a concealed firearm into a school, they may openly carry a holstered pistol there.  They can openly carry holstered pistols into the State Capitol.  Late in the day on 11 March, the members of MGO and MOC were...

    Everybody has an AR because of its reliability, durability and flexibility. Besides owning a shotgun an AR is the next best thing for a home defense.
