On Monday, Richard Manning, Director of Communications for Americans for Limited Government, said this of the Obama Administration: “Their intent is to create a government sanctioned means of driving private industry out of the business of providing payday loans.” Peter Barden, of the Online Lenders Association agrees that what the Obama Administration is doing is outside its legal authority.

    Our Anti-gun foes are sneaky. From enough public outcry Olympia has had to delay their budget proposals until Monday. The Democratic Legislature was only going to allow the public a total of 90 minutes to read through hundreds of pages of the budget document. Enough people complained and they had to delay the hearings until Monday. There happens to be a secret budget proposal that corresponds with the passing of I-594 and the Dept of Licensing. Here is the letter written to us by our local Protect Our Gun Rights group.

While not certain, the pistol used to stop the crime may well be...

    Opponents of the Second Amendment and haters of self-defense are facing a relentless barrage of pro-Second Amendment and pro-self-defense legislation in state legislatures across the country. It is as if the GOP took a page out of the Democrats’ book–improved, then applied it–so that just as the Democrats flooded legislatures with gun control measures in early 2013, Republicans are now flooding legislatures with bills broadening the exercise of Second Amendment rights and protecting the use of firearms for self-defense.

    On March 25, the Colorado Senate voted to repeal the expanded background checks that Democrats rammed through as part of the draconian gun control package that was implemented on July 1, 2013. Democrats justified the passage of expanded background checks by pointing to “mass shootings” at the Aurora movie theater and Sandy Hook Elementary School. In both instances, the lawmakers failed to note that federal background checks were already in place and failed to stop either gunman.

Sponsored by freshman Republican Sen. Eric Brakey of Auburn, this legislation seeks to bring constitutional carry (already the law in Vermont) to Maine. Currently, if one wishes to carry a concealed firearm in Maine, one needs to apply for a permit to do so, through either the Maine State Police or your local police department. This bill would repeal that requirement, allowing anyone who can legally purchase a firearm...

She says Quebec had no choice but to create its own database to keep track of weapons.

After all, only American Liberals would believe that a woman being raped is morally superior to a rapist being shot. Arguing that concealed carry on college campuses would actually “reinforce rape culture” on campus, an editorial in the University of North Carolina’s student’s newspaper argued against arming young (law abiding) women.Concealed weapons would not significantly reduce sexual assault and would create inadvertent risks within other forms of interpersonal violence…...

    With the Senate focused on the 2016 budget, Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) has proposed an amendment that would ban federally mandated gun control. Lee’s amendment would ban any future gun control from lawmakers that fails to garner “two-thirds of senators” in support. It would also ban regulations issued by agencies like the ATF.According to The Hill, Senators David Ritter (R-La) and James Inhofe (R-Okla) have also introduced their own amendment. More narrowly drawn, theirs focuses on the ATF by prohibiting that agency from “attempting to ban bullets that are primarily used by hunters and sportsmen.”

    Oregon lawmakers are gearing up for another round of debate over firearm regulations.

If the proposal sounds familiar, it's because similar measures were introduced and failed in the last two legislative sessions. The difference now? "It's all about the votes,” said bill co-sponsor state Senator Ginny Burdick, a Democrat. "We have the votes now and we did not have the votes before. That's the main difference."

The CM901 has a similar design, but fires the heavier and more powerful 7.62-millimeter bullet, resulting in greater range and killing power. A group of gunsmiths associated with PrintedFirearm.com developed the CM901 lower receiver and uploaded an animated gif of a live-fire test. The clip is five seconds...
