VA – SELF-PROTECTION – These Gun Owners Were Able to Confront Criminals in September

When the Virginia State Crime Commission and the House Judiciary Committee held hearings earlier this fall regarding firearm policies, it was striking how little many gun control advocates and policymakers know about basic facts related to guns and gun violence.

These legislators and advocates, like most of…

CA – GUN CONTROL – Feds Fear Prosecuting La Habra-Based Gun Dealer Would Hurt Gun Control Efforts

For more than a year, Joseph Roh illegally manufactured AR-15-style rifles in a warehouse south of Los Angeles. His customers, more than two dozen of whom were legally prohibited from possessing a firearm, could push a button, pull a lever, and walk away a short time later with a fully assembled, untraceable semi-automatic weapon for about $1,000, according to court records. Roh continued his black-market operation despite being warned…

NAT’L – HOME DEFENSE – The 7 Commandments Of The Home-Defense Shotgun

Just because your name isn’t “Shotgun Eddie” and you didn’t ride a stagecoach to San Antone in your formative years doesn’t mean you can’t defend your home adequately with little more than a loaded shotgun and the will to use it.

DC – COURTS – The High Court’s Political Turn

It’s the first time in a decade that the Supreme Court has considered a case on gun rights. In 2008, the court ruled in District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to bear arms and have a gun in the home for self defense. In 2010, the decision in McDonald v. City of Chicago extended that right in states and localities….

SC – GUN CRIME – Charleston mass murderer got his gun because of background check gaps, internal report shows

Four years after the 2015 attack at the…

FL – OPINION – Editorial: Guns work as tools, not as causes

FL – CAMPUS GUNS – Florida begins arming teachers as large school districts rebuff controversial program

Teachers in seven Florida county school districts will soon be locked and loaded thanks to a state law enacted this month that provides schools with the option to allow teachers to carry concealed guns. The law expands on a safety measure known as the “guardian” program. The program was created in response to the February 2018 Parkland massacre but did not allow teachers to carry guns, in part due…
