Federal Court Denies Admin. Stay In DC Concealed Carry Case

Second Amendment Foundation

BELLEVUE, WA – The federal district court judge handling the Second Amendment Foundation’s challenge to the District of Columbia’s “good reason” concealed carry permit requirement has denied the city’s request for an immediate administrative stay of his ruling last week granting a preliminary injunction against further enforcement of the requirement. The District is also seeking a stay pending appeal.

The Importance of Ear Protection, Even While Hunting

Good ear protection seemed imperative after rupturing my eardrum three times, and a stern warning from my otorhinolaryngologists.

Florida Gun Owners Without CCP Finally Exempt during Hurricanes

Fri, 29 May 2015 20:22:39 +0000

FLORIDA — 10 years ago, Hurricane Katrina struck the Sunshine State, devastating the area and making history. Thousands of people fled their homes, taking only what they could fit in their vehicles with them, knowing they may never see their home and whatever was left inside again. Many gun owners who did not have concealed weapons permits brought their valued firearms with them as they fled the storm. Little did they realize in all the chaos that they were breaking concealed carry laws. New Orleans police confiscated firearms from many people’s homes and even some who were trying to evacuate...

Everytown Using Cop Killings To Push For More Background Checks

Fri, 29 May 2015 19:14:10 +0000

The left has had their fair share of awful studies aimed at curbing our Second Amendment rights. According to the FBI crime statistics, violent crime has seen a precipitous decline. Between 1993-2011, there was a 39 percent drop in firearm-related homicides; Pew Research noted a 49 percent drop between 1993-2010. Given these figures, anti-gun groups have resorted to lumping suicides into the gun violence category to boost the number of fatalities. Recently, the Center for American Progress* hypothesized that gun violence was “devastating” the Millennial generation. That’s not entirely accurate. The noted racial disparity in the CAP report is due to gang violence...

Gun Control Advocates Ask D.C. To Keep May Issue Law

Thu, 28 May 2015 19:40:32 +0000

D.C. officials have asked a judge to let the city enforce a central element of its restrictive concealed-carry law — the requirement that handgun owners demonstrate a “good reason” for a permit to carry — while a lawsuit over the matter works its way through the federal court system. Last week, U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. granted a preliminary injunction that blocks the District from enforcing that part of the law, requiring people to prove a specific “good reason” in order to receive a concealed-carry permit. Read the rest of the article here from Washington Times.

Recent Deaths in Chicago Prove That Gun Control is Deadly

Thu, 28 May 2015 19:11:39 +0000

Everyone knows that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results — well, everyone except Rahm Emanuel. Rahm apparently knows something the rest of us don’t about insanity, and this is evidenced by his recent remarks regarding Chicago’s skyrocketing shooting rates. Chicago has some of the most stringent gun control laws in the nation. It wasn’t until a judge forced them and the rest of the state to have a concealed carry law that made sense. They still have a prohibitively strict protocol in order to obtain a concealed carry permit or...

Maximizing the Beretta 92F with Drop-In Parts from Wilson Combat

Thu, 28 May 2015 18:52:28 +0000

The decision by the US military in 1984 to adopt the Beretta 92F as its new M9 pistol was controversial, to say the least. It has been (and will always remain, no doubt) a topic of heated gun store debates. Officially, the final decision was made based on per-unit cost but I’ve heard all kinds of conspiracy theories to explain the choice as well. Exactly why the Beretta was selected may never be known but one fact is incontrovertible; the Beretta 92F performed at least as well in the military trials as any of the ten other pistols submitted by seven...
