One of the most striking things about America’s climate change deniers is the absolute, near-messianic certainty that they bring to the debate. It’s almost as if they have adopted the zero-gray-area Second Amendment fundamentalism of the National Rifle Association and are aggressively applying it to the question of how we best secure the long-term health and wellbeing of the human species.

It also established three programs to help ensure that armed service members are in a position to protect their bases.

The article, soon to be published in Violence and Gender, stands to combat claims from conservatives that guns make women safer. In fact, relaxing gun laws may have dire implications for domestic violence.

Progressives love to ridicule Americans who are concerned that their Second Amendment rights are being threatened by a gun control-obsessed Obama administration. “No one is coming for your precious guns,” the hoplophobes taunt. “We just want commonsense gun laws.” Except that the pursuit of “commonsense gun laws,” which already exist, is just a smokescreen – President Obama and his crew really are coming for your precious guns.

With its cold-hammer-forged and spiral-fluted barrel, the LWRCI IC-DI stands out from the crowd. There's more to it than that, though. The rifle, the company’s first direct-gas-impingement design, proved remarkably accurate. It was fitted with a Nikon M-223 2-8X 40 mm riflescope for evaluation.

A bill making its way through the South Carolina legislature could make it easier for gun owners to carry their weapons across state lines. It would allow people with carry permits in South Carolina to take their weapons in Georgia without penalty.

While nearly every South Carolina state lawmaker supports this gun reciprocity, state law enforcement isn’t crazy about the idea.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There are other things so clearly out of the power of Congress, that the bare recital of them is sufficient, I mean the "...rights of bearing arms for defence, or for killing game..." These things seem to have been inserted among their objections, merely to induce the ignorant to believe that Congress would have a power over such objects and to infer from their being refused a place in the Constitution, their intention to exercise that power to the oppression of the people. —ALEXANDER WHITE (1787)
