Why the Left Won’t Win the Gun-Control Debate

Tue, 03/06/2018 - 13:31
John Locke described the right of self-defense as a “fundamental law of nature.” It is an unalienable right every bit as essential to human liberty as the right to speak. Indeed, when a person experiences an actual threat, the need to exercise that right of self-defense becomes more immediately primal and deeply felt than any other constitutional right.

For six years I lived in constant fear of a stalker.

Tue, 03/06/2018 - 12:34
For six years I lived in constant fear of a stalker. He harassed me, in person and online, at all hours of the day and night. I notified police and made several reports. A judge granted me a protective order. But still, the stalking and harassment continued. I truly felt all alone. He was slowly taking my life from me. It wasn’t until the death threats began that I knew I had to take matters into my own hands. I got a gun.

The assault weapons ban didn't work. A new version won't, either

Tue, 03/06/2018 - 11:50
There is no denying that the AR-15 — an open-source, modular weapon platform that's the fruit of many tens of billions of private and public dollars in small arms research and almost six decades of innovation — is the most easy to use and the most lethal gun available to civilians. Those of us who defend the 2nd Amendment right to own guns must reckon with this technological reality.

Oh Look, Another Reason Why We Should Be Skeptical Of Democrats On Gun Control

Tue, 03/06/2018 - 08:23
It’s not hard to see why conservatives, Second Amendment supporters, and gun owners distrust Democrats on this issue. Yes, there’s room for agreement on strengthening background checks on mental health, but Democrats don’t want just that. They need something else to satisfy their confiscatory ethos inherent in this issue. They want to destroy the Second Amendment. That’s not hyperbole. That’s becoming more fact-based as the Democratic Party has lurched to the far left in recent years.

More than 1,400 Utahns ages 18 to 20 carry concealed firearms. Here's why

Tue, 03/06/2018 - 08:08
Cole wanted to be able to defend herself. So last year, shortly after the state green-lighted Utahns as young as 18 to get concealed carry permits, she completed the training and bought a 9mm handgun. She was 19. “A lot of people told me I was too young for it,” said Cole, now 20. "But I feel safer."

By ditching the NRA, companies are dividing Americans

Mon, 03/05/2018 - 16:23
Sam never used the corporate discounts available to him through his National Rifle Association membership. It’s not like he doesn’t love a good deal — he just forgot they were available. A pharmaceutical salesman from suburban Cleveland, Sam says he’s never been much of an activist when it comes to leveraging his purchasing power. “I am pretty pragmatic about my shopping habits,” said the 40-something, who asked that his last name not be published. “While I look for convenience, I will go out of my way to purchase something if I was treated well by a company.” Until now.
