MO – GUN RIGHTS – Walking around Walmart with a rifle is legal — and shows insanity of Missouri gun laws

Two men lacking the common sense God gave a garden slug strolled into a Kansas City Walmart with a rifle and a handgun on Sunday and, whew, were promptly taken into custody. But under this state’s laws, police later said they’d done nothing illegal. Which only shows how unholstered and unhinged Missouri’s gun laws and their makers really are. Every time there’s a mass shooting, we hear from Republican legislators that the answer to gun…

VA – GUN RIGHTS – Sparking Dialogue or Sparking Joy: Competing Views on Gun “Buyback” Initiatives

In the case of the New Zealand program, it is neither a “buyback” nor voluntary. Apart from the quibble that the privately-owned guns have not been owned or sold by the government such that any later relinquishment is, in fact, a “buy back,” there’s nothing optional about the program, unless the decision between surrendering your property or facing hard jail time can be said to represent a…

NAT’L – GUN RIGHTS – Proposed Gun Laws Would Do Nothing to Prevent Mass Killings, and Everyone Knows It
