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.

A very interesting Second Amendment case has developed in the Illinois state court system. The case challenges the requirement to qualify for, pay for, and have in possession, an Illinois Firearm Owner Identification card (FOID), to legally possess a firearm in the home for the purposes of self defense. The case is very clear. The Illinois court ruled the requirement to have an FOID was unconstitutional. [Read more…] about Illinois FOID Second Amendment Case Appealed

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?
