CA – Self-Protection – LAPD Chief Warns of Apocalypse if National Concealed Carry Passes

May 26, 2017 – Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck warns that national reciprocity for concealed carry will be a disaster in California.

Nat’l – Opinion – Guns on campus is progressive academia’s straw man

THE HILL.COM May 26, 2017 – Gun control advocates frequently advise against people using guns for self-defense. But Michael Bloomberg and various anti-gun politicians often use armed guard as protection. Talk is cheap. But when a professor resigns because of his university’s concealed carry policies, that’s a story that can get national attention. In May, associate history professor Jacob Dorman resigned from the University of Kansas. He accepted another tenured position at…

DC – Politics – Five Pro-Second Amendment Moves McConnell and Ryan Could be Making

BREITBART.COM May 25, 2017 – When the House and Senate both voted to repeal the Social Security gun ban in February, Americans got the impression that we finally had legislators who were going to be proactive on the Second Amendment, who would seize the opportunity of having a pro-gun president, and pass bill after bill to bolster the exercise of Second Amendment rights. However, everything stalled as both the House and…

Keep concealed guns out of California

LOS ANGELES TIMES May 25, 2017 – Californians have a lot on the line in the next congressional debate about America’s gun laws. Two bills stacked with legislative sponsors — HB 38 in the House, SB 446 in the Senate — would override our state’s longstanding rules governing who is allowed to carry a concealed, loaded firearm in public. These bills, both called the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, would dictate that if a…

MT – Politics – The Issue Democrats Wish Would Go Away

POLITICO.COM May 24, 2017 -The progressive hope in Thursday’s special election to represent Montana’s at-large House district can be seen in an ad caressing a gun he lovingly calls “this old rifle.” In another spot, Democratic nominee Rob Quist pulls a shiny bullet from his barn coat pocket, locks and loads, and fires at a TV airing a spot questioning his Second Amendment bona fides. “I’ll protect your right to bear…

BREITBART.COM May 24, 2017 – On May 24, Politico Magazine ran a piece reminding current Democratic office holders of Bill Clinton’s warning that pro-gun control polling is not pro-gun control voting.
