YOUR TURN: 17 Reasons To Own a Gun and Holster in 2017

By David King

COPS PLUS.COM May 18, 2017 – Today, the controversy of gun ownership is a heated issue in the United States. While some believe there should be strict gun control laws, Americans are eagerly working to arm themselves for the sake of protection. As fear rises across the nation, properly trained individuals who legally have the right to carry a firearm have formed clubs to help others learn…

Your Turn: If the NRA Ran the DOT

This is a typical cartoon from that lame-stream liberal media icon, The New Yorker. If guns were unregulated, there would be mayhem. What a simplistic metaphor. In Switzerland, where all military men are required to keep an assault rifle and ample ammunition in their homes, traffic engineers have studied the inefficiency of over regulation. It turns out those intersections without stop lights, or even stop signs, are actually safer…

YOUR TURN: William Gregg: Impossible To Control Guns In America

COURIER-JOURNAL (KY) July 29, 2016 – Whenever a mass shooting occurs, the progressive-left automatically demands more gun control laws. That’s a pretext. Their real goal is the complete removal of all guns from the hands of private American citizens. In the early 20th century, America decided to institute a complete ban on alcohol. It was called Prohibition. How did that work? The only thing Prohibition did was create a monolithic…

YOUR TURN: Rich Loudenback: GUNS: Carrying Freedom Forward

CDAPRESS.COM (ID) July 29, 2016 – Is there a better example of how open carry law serves as a detriment to would be shooters than the recent success of the GOP Convention in Cleveland? I’d say not. Present were a lot of radicals up to causing trouble for the proceedings including an in your face “armed to the teeth” vigilante New Black Panther Group. So concerned about possibilities becoming…

Your Turn: Karen Butler, Conservative Woman Voter

Enough is Enough.  I have a feeling that the terrorists are not surprised by our elected leaders’ responses to the terrorist attack on American citizens in Orlando, Florida in the early morning hours of June 12th, 2016 – but we should be. …

The Time Has Come For Counterpunching Against the Left

Bob Cherry | June 16, 2016 — These anti-gunners have taken the gloves off and are getting serious. It time that those of us who value the Constitution and the Second Amendment become more active in countering their aggressiveness. Articles are now popping up in the liberal press advocating a special court to eliminate the 2nd Amendment all together (http://bit.ly/24R7iol and http://rol.st/25Yn5nL).

It is blatantly clear…

Take a New Shooter Out — Get Free Ammo

Thursday, June 16, 2016 — With Father’s Day coming up Sunday, odds seem good that a lot of us will be spending time with family. We have a program that will send free 9mm ammo to families who introduce their kids or any new shooter to gun safety and the shooting sports. I thought with the holiday and talk about firearms these days, it might be something you’d be…

YOUR TURN: How to Select Your First Firearm – One Person’s View

BOB CHERRY | December 30, 2015 – Many first-time gun buyers don’t have a clue where to begin. If they have a friend who has been shooting for a while (more than 2 years), then they can probably get some good tips on where to start their search but, many today are searching for their first gun because of the violent climate we’re currently in. But, with the vast range…

Your Turn: Universal Background Checks

By Gene Ralno | December 18, 2015 — Leftist firearm hysteria isn’t about saving lives, ridding the planet of firearms, public safety or even common sense.  It stems from political ideology and only begins with universal background checks.

Leftists often shift to the “broader conversation” and imply that career politicians have special knowledge that empowers them to dictate what’s needed to protect family or self against gangs, wolves, nuts, felons — or government. …

YOUR TURN: Comparison of Gun Control in Australia vs. United States

By Gene Ralno, December 10, 2015 — How well did Australia’s gun buy-back confiscation program work?  The results are just now coming in.  Here are some facts.  Most so-called “gun deaths” in the U.S. were suicides and as most would conclude, suicide will take the path of least pain. But the fact is the U.S. suicide rate is only slightly higher than Australia’s (1.25 times), about the same as our…

YOUR TURN: The Age of Gun Violence 

By Bob Cherry | December 4, 2015 — This is not a simple issue to address. There are many variables at play. The level of violence has been building for a while. What needs to be studied is how did we get to this level of violence, intolerance and viciousness in a civilized society?

You just never heard of these kinds of things years ago. They certainly didn’t happen with such frequency….

YOUR TURN: Our Readers’ Forum – October Firearm Sales Breaks Record

By Bob Cherry, Nov. 17, 2015  — National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) firearm background checks hit 1,976,759, almost 2 Million, for just the month of October setting a new record for the month. All this talk about more gun control is being reflected in massive sales. Gun manufacturers are probably very happy. With checks exceeding 20 Million in 2013 and 2014, 2015 is headed for over 21…
