    In the modern day gun world the semi-auto pistols have a huge hold of the market for self-defense guns. But concealed carry revolvers can still hold their own for personal defense. Revolvers can be a strong choice for concealed carry, as they’re reliable and easy to use. Not everyone is a fan of a small semi-auto for concealed carry. However, there is a large fan base of shooters that will only look to revolvers for concealed carry. If you’re in this group and interested in carrying a revolver for CCW, read on of the pros and con and see our...

    The nation's police chiefs are rising up against another conservative crime-fighting initiative, sending a letter to leaders of Congress on Thursday opposing a bill that would allow gun owners with concealed-carry permits in one state to carry their concealed weapons in all 50 states. The letter from the International Association of Chiefs of Police, representing 18,000 police departments across the United States, and Boston Police Commissioner William Evans targets the "Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act," which passed the House in December and is now assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The letter is endorsed by 473 police officials from 39 states,...

    Dustin Guess was working outside on a hog fence Thursday morning, he says, when two pit bulls began their attack. But the two adult dogs — one male and one female — weren’t going after the man from West Fork, Arkansas. Instead, they were targeting Guess’ 4-year-old son, Matthew, according to Fox6. The female pit bull sunk its teeth into Matthew’s legs and started to drag him, police say, while the male dog attacked the toddler’s face. Guess told KNWA that he started to sprint toward his son with the hopes of separating him from the two vicious dogs. It’s...

    President Trump pushed back Wednesday against a GOP lawmaker's proposal to attach a concealed carry measure to background checks legislation, saying it would “never” pass. Rep. Steve Scalise (La.), the No. 3 House Republican and a lawmaker who was gravely wounded in a shooting just last summer, offered the proposal at a White House meeting between Trump and lawmakers from both parties that was aired live on cable television. He suggested adding the concealed carry measure, which would allow permits for concealed weapons to cross state lines, to a background check bill known as the Fix NICS (National Instant Criminal...

    We've heard a whole range of reasons for why individuals are opposed to arming trained teachers in schools after President Trump suggested it as a way to stop would be school shooters. Some of those explanations have been a bit more irrational than others. For instance, Matt reported on MSNBC anchor Lawrence O'Donnell suggesting handgun bullets simply don't move fast enough to stop a gunman.We now have this hot take from CNN Senior Law Enforcement Analyst Tom Fuentes, who argued Monday that women can't conceal carry because it would not work with their wardrobes. He used Sandy Hook Elementary, where...

    Israel has historically been vocal concerning gun violence, opposing open-carry legislation and one law that would allow concealed weapons on campuses. He began implementing body cameras for his deputies in 2016. This week, Israel announced that deputies guarding Broward County Schools will now carry rifle, including AR-15s... a police officer assigned to Stoneman Douglas resigned after failing to enter the Parkland school as a gunman opened fire and killed 17 students and faculty. Israel said Deputy Scot Peterson should have “went in. Addressed the killer. Killed the killer.” The sheriff placed two other deputies under investigation for their handling of...

    Ohio teachers are flocking to a gun training class being offered by an Ohio Sheriff’s department. Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones told Fox & Friends that when they decided to offer the firearm training class to teachers they expected maybe 20 educators to sign up — instead there were hundreds. “We put it online, we thought we’d get 20 school teachers maybe. Within 20 minutes we had 40. Within an hour we had 100. Within four hours we had 200. By the next morning, at 300, we cut it off,” Jones said. The class was open to teachers as well...

    President Donald Trump said Friday that he would review policies that keep troops from carrying personal weapons onto military bases. . . Defense Department policy mainly has been that base security is the province of military police. In most cases, troops are required to leave their personal weapons at home or check them at the gate in an effort to prevent accidental shootings and discourage suicides. "We had a number of instances on military bases, you know that," Trump said in his speech, apparently referring to active shooter episodes.

    Godless liberals conceal carry in order to kill someone who disagrees with them. Conservative concealed carry individuals carry guns to protect people around them no matter what their point of view is. One side has a good value system. The other does not. The proper use of weapons is all about values.

    David KopelIndependence Institute January 17, 2018 David B. Kopel The House of Representatives recently passed the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 with bipartisan support. The act would allow people eligible to carry a concealed firearm in their home state to carry in other states, as well.Opponents contend the act violates federalism. Actually, the act is well within congressional powers under the 14th Amendment. That amendment was enacted specifically to give Congress the power to act against state infringements of national civil rights.Section one of the 14th Amendment forbids states to violate civil rights. Section five of the amendment...

    There’s a lot of debate that takes place around the idea of open carry. Many argue that open carry is tactically stupid as it makes it clear to any potential bad guy who to take out first during a robbery. Others counter with arguments about how open carry initiates conversations about the Second Amendment and our right to keep and bear arms. Both are good points, but for one open carrier in Fayetteville, NC, open carry isn’t such a grand thing these days. An incident involving a stolen gun caused a commotion at Walmart on Skibo Road on Thursday afternoon....

    There are many ways to carry your concealed handguns, which brings up the argument of appendix carry vs the four o’clock, small of back or under the armpit position, etc. Appendix carry has grown in popularity, whether that’s by watching too many Hollywood movies or experimenting with the different position. Another thing that’s talked about is the carrier body composition as a factor. Seems like the thinner folks have an easier time concealing the handguns versus another who’s a little on the heavier side. Whoa, lets put the brakes on here, in the appendix carry video Rob Leatham(Team Springfield) is...
