Former City of Atlanta CFO Indicted For Illegal Machine Gun Possession

To many people the administration of former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed epitomized corruption. Second Amendment rights advocates noted the Reed administration’s dislike of firearms, and saw his membership in Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns as a sign of things to come. Which they did. Go figure. There’s a reason David Codrea calls the group […]

Court Ruling: AR-15s Are Now Machineguns In Nevada…Apparently

I have written extensively on the subject of bump-fire stocks (or “bump-stock-type devices” (BSTD), as the ATF so charmingly refers to them), and why they matter beyond their suddenly being designated as “machineguns” or their uncompensated taking.

Ms. Blair achieved her bit of internet fame the other day with a simple(-minded) tweet. There are far better ways to protect your […]

Chasing the Machine Guns

I try to keep up with the criminal use of machine guns in the United States. To date, I have documented five cases of an actual machine gun that was used in a crime (as opposed to the crime only being possession or transfer of a machine gun) since passage of the National Firearms Act […]

While none of the candidates vying for the Democratic presidential nomination can be said to be anything but bad on Second Amendment rights, there’s always that one. Eric “Duke Nukem” Swalwell ran his low-single-digit campaign on a platform of enforcing unconstitutional edicts with overwhelming military force. He was the stalking horse for other, more credible […]
