    Black Chicagoans Ignore Dem Leaders, Pull Epic Conservative Move By Kim Smith on September 19, 2017 at 3:38pm Black women in Chicago are coming to the realization that the best defense is a good offense. Despite Democrat leadership in the crime-ridden city imploring citizens to let law enforcement handle the exploding crime, residents ó primarily black women ó are thinking for themselves and buying guns for self defense. The Chicago Tribune reported that nearly 1,400 black women in Illinois have received concealed carry permits in 2017. That number has gone up since last year and is almost twice the 800...

    Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump -- who said he has a concealed carry permit -- called for the expansion of gun rights Friday, including making those permits applicable nationwide. In a position paper published on his website Friday afternoon, Trump called for the elimination of gun and magazine bans, labeling them a "total failure." "Law-abiding people should be allowed to own the firearm of their choice. The government has no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own," Trump wrote.

    JEFFERSON CITY ó Missouri became the latest state to allow residents to carry a concealed weapon without a permit when lawmakers supported the change Wednesday. Tense debate during the legislature's annual veto override session encompassed themes of race and class as lawmakers clashed over whether to override Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of Senate Bill 656. In the days leading up to the session the debate drew national attention, with organizations on both sides of the issues working to influence lawmakers. Another controversial part of the bill is its "stand your ground" provision, which will allow residents to use deadly force...

    SANTA ANA -- Three people died and two others, including a police officer, were wounded in a rash of shootings across the city this week, underscoring what the police chief on Friday called a surge in brazen gang-related crimes. Santa Ana police Chief Carlos Rojas said it was the worst week in a year already rocked by the 'busiest' January for his department since 2011. "We're seeing more gang activity now, and I think a lot of that has to do with gang members being released into the community and more of a soft-on-crime approach," Rojas said.

    Subject: Sir, you are wrong with regard to your CCP order Sir, with all due respect, you are wrong in your decision to unilaterally withdraw CCP reciprocity with other states. While you may have concerns about their meeting Virginia's standards, the correct method of resolving a dispute is to talk about it first. Instead, you've slapped 26 other states across the face with your decision. As a result, you've now placed Virginians...VIRGINIANS, SIR... at risk of retaliation from other states when they subsequently withdraw their reciprocity agreements with Virginia. In effect, you've placed law-abiding VIRGINIANS at risk of breaking laws....

    Gonzalez claims he was unfairly targeted because he was carrying a gun. The traffic stop began routine enough. Rosenberg officer Sgt. Anthony Schnacky asked Gonzalez for his license and insurance. "Yeah, what's the reason you stopped me?" Gonzalez asked. "I'll tell you in just a minute," the officer replied. But when Gonzalez informed Sgt. Schnacky that he was legally carrying a concealed firearm, the tone of the situation shifted dramatically. The officer called for backup and they both approached the driver's window -- one of them with his gun drawn. Schnacky ordered Gonzalez to put his hands on the steering...

Of course, this is just what I would like, not what I necessarily need. If you have any other ideas for concealed carry, please feel free to add...
