    --(snip) "The proposal, Senate Bill 143, exempts some exchanges, including ones that occur between immediate family members. That includes spouses, parents and children, but not in-laws. Assemblywoman Jill Tolles, R-Reno, shared that she bought her first firearm from her sister-in-law and previously received hunting rifles from her father-in-law. Tolles asked if those transfers would now result in a gross misdemeanor. “In those instances, the simplest solution would probably be for your spouse or your sibling, if they took possession of the gun and then gave the gun to you,” Rosen said. That’s a logical solution with one small problem. That...
  • EXCLUSIVE: College Bars Young Americans for Freedom Chapter From Displaying a Pro-2A Flag

    Students at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California are having their First Amendment rights trampled on by school administrators. Students from OCC's Young Americans for Freedom chapter on Wednesday were tabling during a student recruitment fair. The goal was simple: to attract new members to the conservative student organization. Part of the students' booth display included a pro-Second Amendment flag that said "Don't Tread On Me" and "2nd Amendment Since 1789." But because two silhouettes of rifles appeared on the flag, administrators approached the students during the recruitment fair and demanded it be taken down. According to the...

    On January 30th, 2019 a woman thought she was stopping a dog fight. She ended up holding a 35-pound juvenile mountain lion instead. From Early on the morning of Jan. 30 a woman responded to what she thought was a fight between her dog and another dog outside of her Mackay home. As she pulled the two animals apart, she realized that in one hand she held a juvenile, male mountain lion about 35 pounds, and not another dog as she expected.The woman restrained both her dog and the mountain lion while yelling for her husband, who was...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday issued a warning to Republicans poised to support President Trump's decision to declare a national emergency at the southern border: the next Democratic president, she said, could do the same on guns. "A Democratic president can declare emergencies, as well," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. "So the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans." Pelosi noted that Thursday marked the one-year anniversary of the shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 students and faculty dead....

    Sullivan County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy told reporters on Wednesday that earlier that day authorities got a report of an active-shootersituation at David A. Guy Dentistry in Kingsport. Cassidy said it took officers six minutes to respond. At the scene, they found that an employee had died, allegedly gunned down by her husband. Cassidy, who described the situation as “workplace violence” of the “domestic type,” said the situation could have been worse, had it not been for a citizen with a concealed weapon.

    SANTA FE — A bill expanding background check requirements for New Mexico gun sales cleared a key stumbling block Thursday, as members of the Senate voted 22-20 to pass the measure after more than three hours of debate. The legislation, along with other gun bills pending at the Roundhouse, have drawn opposition from most county sheriffs statewide and prompted at least two New Mexico counties — Quay and Socorro — to adopt ordinances suggesting they would not enforce the law.

Because if the president can declare an emergency on something that he has created as an emergency, an illusion that he wants to convey, just think of what a president with different values can present to the American people,' she said.

    Most of the same dysfunctional officials in charge at the time of the shooting are still running the dystopian show in Broward County, which is Florida’s version of New York City and San Francisco. I live nine miles from Parkland, Florida. Weeks after a young shooter murdered 14 students and three staffers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, I wrote that Democratic policies had helped enable the atrocity. One year later, few have been held accountable, but the Democrat anti-gun cult has strengthened. Most of the same dysfunctional officials in charge at the time of the shooting are still running...

    I live nine miles from Parkland, Florida. Weeks after Nikolas Cruz murdered 14 students and three staffers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, I wrote that Cruz was the byproduct of "it takes a village" guaranteed-to-fail Democrat outcomes. One year later, few have been held accountable, but the Democrat anti-gun cult has strengthened.

    Women are the largest growing demographic of handgun owners for self-defense. More women than ever are also starting to carry concealed pistols for protection, and also attending beginner classes to learn how to operate a firearm. However, the struggle to find the right firearm can be difficult. Gun manufacturers design most of their handguns with men in mind because that’s the biggest demographic of handgun owners, but that is slowly starting to change. Some semiauto pistols stand out as excellent choices for women looking for their first firearm. While we’ve stuck to 9mms for the purposes of this article, there...
  • Dems' Gun Control Narrative Is a Flop – And It's a Win For 2A Advocates

    “Democrats aren’t interested in talking about common sense solutions that can actually help prevent gun violence—like supporting local law enforcement, ensuring laws and protocols are followed to spot warning signs, improving mental health care and implementing national concealed carry reciprocity,” Hudson said in a statement. The Congressman said that's definitely the case, as evidenced by their decision to keep Scalise from testifying. “That was reinforced last week when they blocked my friend Steve Scalise – a survivor of gun violence – from testifying at their hearing because he wanted to talk about my concealed carry reciprocity bill. Today’s so-called universal...

    Now just how, you wonder, did we get from that rancid old slander about the malign political influence of Jewish money (“the Benjamins” in Ilhan Omar’s street lingo) to the National Rifle Association? Well, probably the same way Harvey Weinstein did when it was first revealed that he is a sexual predator who had used his status in Hollywood to cover up what was often described as “an open secret.” Facing disgrace and charges of rape, Weinstein also apologized — sort of — in a written statement he delivered to the New York Times, which began: “My journey now will...

    Washington State has been the battleground over gun control, especially over the last year. Back in November, 60 percent of voters passed I-1639 , a ballot initiative that: • Raised the age someone can purchase a rifle to 21. • Created an "enhanced background check system similar to what is used for handguns." • Required a person to complete a firearms safety training course. • Created a common stand for secure gun storage. Sheriffs across the state refused to enforce the law, saying they believe it violates residents' Second Amendment rights. Spokane Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich even received death threats over...

    The Los Angeles City Council voted 14-0 Tuesday to approve an ordinance requiring city contractors disclose any ties to the National Rifle Association. It’s the first such legislation for any municipality, according to Councilman Mitch O’Farrell’s office. He first introduced the ordinance in September 2018. It will force companies aiming to do business with the city to publicly reveal any financial links to NRA and its subsidiaries. The law has several exemptions, including pension fund contracts. In a news conference ahead of Tuesday’s vote, O’Farrell said the NRA previously sent a letter to the City Council claiming that the law...
  • David Hogg: Fight Effort to Arm Florida Teachers for Self-Defense [Camera Hogg is back]

    Gun control advocate David Hogg is urging fellow gun control proponents to fight efforts to arm Florida teachers for self-defense. His attempt to rally gun control supporters comes as Republican legislators in Florida seek to expand the state’s Guardian program to allow teachers to carry in the classroom for self-defense after volunteering for the program and going through the proper training. The Guardian program currently applies to school staff members but bans guns in the classrooms, which is the very place teachers and their students huddle and hide in the midst of an attack. Republicans want to augment the program...
