Concealed Carry: Some Civilians Are More Equal Than Others. Again. Still.

Why is there a concealed carry carve-out for retired cops and, now, military police (with ten years service)? It’s bad enough that active cops and military po-po get “special permission”…

Cabela’s to Gun Guys: We Know Who You Are

  TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia assume we’re monitored by the NSA. Dunno. This much we do know: the private sector is collecting the kind of consumer-specific data on gun owners that…

You may remember TTAG outed MAIG’s hunter/salesman. There’s been some controversy over that post—that I won’t go into here. Suffice it to say the Mayors Against Illegal Guns have found a less press-shy poster child: William Branham (2:25). Not William M. Branham the prophetic evangelical Pentecostal Christian minister famous for his “divine healing movement.” William Branham, Arkansas resident, member of the American Rimfire Association (judging from his cap), father of a daughter “killed by a handgun” (i.e. murdered by her estranged husband) and MAIG supporter. Who doesn’t think the government is out to get his guns. Or yours. MAIG may be going down in flames as members bail, and will do so in droves in the run-up to 2014, but their attempts to divide and conquer continue.

Gun Rights Political Payback On Its Way?

If you’re carrying a gun for self-defense, good for you! Good for society! Good for business! If you’re not, why not? I’m thinking it may have something to do with geography. Gun owners living in states where the government thinks “shall not be infringed” means “shall infringe” have little luck tooling-up. Those governments are, almost invariably, Democrat controlled. Yes I know: Republicans have voted for gun control. Blue Dog Democrats are pro-gun. But if you have to pick a party to protect your pistol packing proclivities—and you do—it’s the pachyderm party. Remember: you can’t have a defensive gun use without a gun. And you can’t have a gun if politicians remove your right to keep and bear arms. So hold your nose if you have to and vote Republican. Right?

Self-Defense Tip: Vote Republican
