Update: Florida Open Carry On Life Support

Earlier today we ran a post from a reader regarding the legislative bottleneck holding up Florida Senate Bill 140 which would legalize open carry in the Sunshine state. That reader has since gotten some more details on the situation, none of it good: Sen. Greg Steube’s office has told me that the good Senator is still on […]

Education Secretary Nominee Betsy DaVos: Guns OK in Schools Because Bears

“Betsy DeVos, Donald Trump’s nominee for education secretary, said during her Senate confirmation hearing on Tuesday that local authorities should decide whether guns should be barred from American schools,” vox.com reports, “citing the case of a school in Wyoming where a special fence protects students from bears.” True story!

EU Bureaucrats Continue Efforts to Disarm Lawful Gun Owners

…And Sometimes You Win

Nick Leghorn has an excellent blow-by-blow on the numbers concerning the election. It notes that the margin of victory for President-Elect Donald Trump was extremely close in a lot of states. It’s solid, and is worth reading his analysis in its entirety. Go ahead, I’ll wait. In short: gun owners just made the difference in the […]

A friend of mine recently read my article on Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump. I wrote that if the Democrats nominated Hillary and the GOP nominated Trump, I’d support Donald Trump. “Are you still on board with this?” my friend, a former Bernie enthusiast turned Trump supporter asked.

The Pre-Hillary Gun Sales Surge for Dummies

Three variables greatly influence American gun sales: elections, legislation, and mass shootings. The last factor is obvious enough; people don’t want to get shot by a sociopath. The first and second are confusing to those on the left. They really don’t understand why people arm up when an anti-gun politician has a chance of being elected, or gun control legislation […]
