Liberating good guys with guns

Wed, 12/06/2017 - 08:03
The right to self-defense is fundamental to a free people. So says the Second Amendment, and Americans hearing it loud and clear are the proud owners of guns enough to arm nearly every man, woman and child. When ne’er-do-wells turn their weapons against the innocent, it’s responsibly armed citizens who must provide defense in the absence of the police. That’s why rules that force concealed carry permit holders to leave their firearms at home when they travel are foolish rules. Congress must finish the job of empowering the good and responsible man and woman with a gun.

Indiana: Seriously, Evansville. Settle the zoo/gun lawsuit.

Wed, 12/06/2017 - 08:02
I’m sure you remember it. In September of that year, an Evansville man named Benjamin Magenheimer sauntered into Mesker with a handgun strapped to his hip. Security tossed him out, and he filed suit, knowing that a recently passed state law barring local municipalities from regulating guns would give him the upper-hand.And he was right. As long as you’re not creating a disturbance – which Magenheimer swears he wasn’t — you can take your gun into any public place you wish. There’s nothing the city can do about it because this is Indiana, baby.
