Brazilian gun laws are some of the strictest in the world. President Jair Bolsonaro started to reform the administration of the laws in 2019. He did this by using his power of Presidential decrees.

Changes to the law must come through the Congress, those changes have not been enacted yet. [Read more…] about Video: Watch Brazil, See the Failure of Gun Control
Man Allegedly Hiding Drugs In Backside Accidentally Shoots Himself In Testicles
I must admit, FOX News originally ran this story. At first, I thought it was simply too good not to share. I mean, this is cosmic justice for a career criminal. Then, I thought about it a bit more and realized that it is also the type of story that, unfortunately, gives law-abiding gun owners a bad name. Yes. Although he is a career criminal, an armed bad guy, it will give the law-abiding guns a bad name. Stories of negligent discharges such as this are, and will in the future, be used against us by the anti gunners. It is not right or fair; they will not spend any time to discover the details of how this nimrod who was legally forbidden from owning or possessing a firearm magically ended up with a gun in his pants. Instead, it will go down as a statistic of a “gun owner” mishandling a firearm and shooting himself. This is another area where, we as gun owners, need to combat the misuse of information that is erroneously used against us.

While some gun activists are questioning the decision by U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez to grant a stay in the case of Duncan v. Becerra—the challenge to California’s magazine capacity limit—it may have been the best move for Golden State gun owners, and all it takes is a careful reading of the order to understand why.

The overall national anti-gun push is leading many to wonder if the Democrat party has forgotten the difference between “rights” and “privileges,” or whether Democrat lawmakers just doesn’t care.

The 30-page measure was passed by the voters in November 2018. Currently, a majority of county sheriffs, at least one police chief, and two county commissions have come against the measure and refused to enforce its oppressive, and potentially unconstitutional, mandates.

It is fairly safe to say that Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is no friend of gun owners and the Second Amendment. That being said, while President Trump is invoking a National Emergency over illegal immigration and the border, Speaker Pelosi made a thinly veiled threat that a future Democratic President could make firearm ownership a National Emergency (under the guise of “gun violence”). Essentially, this would equate to an Executive Action to enact new gun control. [Read more…] about Will guns be declared a National Emergency with a Democratic President?

I have a great many friends who are democrats and staunch supporters of the Second Amendment, but that is on a personal level. That being said, when it comes to politicians, Democrat seems to be synonymous with gun control and the assault on our Second Amendment rights. Today, the Democrats demonstrated that unity and showed their desire to strip us of our Second Amendment rights. You don’t have to take my word for it.
