Seattle, the tip of the progressive spear in Washington State, is now facing a crisis in crime arising from its commitment to defund the

In July, an NRA-ILA backed lawsuit challenging Delaware’s new ban on so-called assault weapons was filed. Now that lawsuit was amended to challenge the state’s ban on so-called large capacity magazines, which it defines as a magazine having the capacity to accept more than 17 rounds.

Late last night, the California Legislature adjourned sine die, ending the 2022 session. Fortunately, despite efforts by anti-gun politicians to push through more gun control, Assembly Bill 1227 (Excise Tax) and Senate Bill 918 (CCW Reform) failed to pass. This is a huge win for law-abiding gun owners not having additional costs, burdens, and restrictions that

Survey after survey indicates that crime remains one of the top issues of voters as the country approaches the midterm elections (here, here, here and here, for instance).

Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s position on guns is straightforward. The former New York manny wants to ban and confiscate America’s most popular firearms and further undermine Texans’ Second Amendment rights. This radical position plays well with some Democratic presidential primary voters. It doesn’t with the Texas electorate. That’s why the perennial

Gun control advocates’ preferred policies have been repeatedly rejected by the American people through their elected representatives. The U.S. Supreme Court and Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution has foreclosed, for now, gun control backers’ chief aim – total civilian disarmament. Moreover, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act makes clear that firearm manufacturers
