How to Choose the Best Self-Defense Gun for Your Needs

So you've decided to buy your first gun for self defense and officially become a gun owner. It's a big decision, especially for a first-time gun buyer, but you actually have a bunch more to make right away.

Do you want a defense handgun, shotgun, or rifle? Do you want a semi-automatic? Are you going to be carrying a concealed firearm, and if so, should you use your concealed carry gun for home defense? How much does "stopping power" matter? Will it be an everyday carry (EDC) gun, or only occasionally when you feel you need it?
 

AR: Local faith leader writes in opposition to “Stand Your Ground” bill

One local faith leader joined over 60 other faith leaders across Arkansas in signing and submitting a letter as Arkansas Faith Against “Stand Your Ground,” to Governor Asa Hutchinson and members of the Arkansas Legislature this week advocating against the passage of bill SB24 or the Stand Your Ground defense bill.

The Arkansas State Senate passed a ‘Stand Your Ground’ bill, which removed a duty to retreat from an attacker if possible and expanded a current self-defence law to apply to areas outside one’s property, on Jan. 19.

House Bill 102 will strengthen Montana’s self-defense laws by allowing law-abiding Montana gun owners to carry a firearm for self-defense throughout the state without first having to obtain a government mandated permit to do so. Further, this bill will remove some of Montana’s “gun-free zones” from the list of prohibited places and stop the unnecessary disarming of Montanans as they go about their day-to-day lives.

As we’ve seen throughout last year’s unrest and up to the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, public demonstrations — where passions and personal convictions were already running hot — became an even more volatile and too often deadly mix when firearms and other weapons were brandished.

Ed.: The only guns at the capitol protest were carried by cops.

Establishes a tax on the purchase of ammunition by a business (for sale at retail). The measure specifies a 2 cents per round tax on rounds .22 caliber or less and 5 cents per round for all other ammunition. This is an egregious measure that would place undue financial burden on law-abiding gun owners and create a de facto tax on the exercising of one’s Second Amendment rights.
 

Pro Gun Group Says H.R. 127 Gun Control Bill Is ‘Insanity on Steroids’

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee’s H.R. 127, a gun control measure requiring gun owner licensing, psychological evaluations, retroactive gun registration, and separate licensing for modern sporting rifles is “insanity on steroids,” the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

“Over the years,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “we’ve seen some astonishingly bad legislation originate on Capitol Hill, but this one takes the term ‘abomination’ to an entirely new level. One look at this bill and you wonder whether Congresswoman Jackson Lee ever heard of the Bill of Rights, which includes the Second Amendment.”

Take the “suicide” track, for example. I fail to see why a restriction in the manner and place a person can carry a firearm is somehow going to prevent suicide, or how it would increase. The anti-civil rights crowd (aka anti-gun) seems to think it would.

One of the claims I find amusing and is often cited by the anti-gun mob: “if you own a gun you are three times more likely to commit suicide with a firearm.” What does this even mean? It could also be said that if you have access to a vehicle you are three times more likely to drive drunk or get in an accident. If you have access to food, you also increase your risk to choking, too.

It has been a long day. You’re hungry, so you pull over to buy some food from a well-known sandwich shop. It is dark outside, but a number of people are still eating and ordering food. Two of the customers inside the sandwich shop begin to argue. One of them pulls out a knife. That is when lots of people leave the shop.. except you. You shout for the man to stop. You’re there when the man with the knife stabs the other customer. Now you run to your truck and grab your gun. You run back inside and order the attacker to stop. He stops the attack and retreats. You hold the attacker at gunpoint until the police arrive.
 

To See the Danger of a Domestic “War on Terror,” Look No Further Than This Florida Case

In the wake of January’s pro-Trump protest-turned-riot at the Capitol, some have warned of the dangers of a “war on terror”–style response to the episode, and how easily it could be turned against a host of activists, dissidents, and marginalized communities. A recent criminal case out of Florida shows these warnings are not just theoretical.

A longtime pal recently asked me to build a good concealed carry rig for his fairly new SIG SAUER compact 9mm pistol. This fellow has owned guns but he’s never carried one, a least in a holster on his person, despite the fact that he’s been licensed to carry for many years.

But things are different now. I knocked together a little rig I call “The Undershirt,” the original “tuckable” holster for which my buddy’s SIG is ideally sized and suited. It took a couple of days for my friend to learn about carry position and the art of re-holstering with one hand, but he seems to have worked out the kinks.

Lathrop’s family told KCRG-TV9 in September they were frustrated no one had been arrested since police knew the shooter who killed Lathrop was also wounded in the gun battle.

However, Vander Sanden said the shootout was justified under Iowa’s “Force-Reasonable or Deadly-Defenses” law and ruled no one will face charges directly related to the shooting.

Reno police are investigating a fatal shooting south of downtown that may have been done in self-defense.

Police say they responded to a report of a shooting at about 8:40 p.m. Wednesday in the area of South Virginia Street and Hillcrest near Plumb Lane.

The victim, whose name has not been released, already was dead. No one else was there, but police say a few minutes later a man who said he was involved in the shooting contacted police and told them he had left the scene.

The first gun control bill that Biden will push in his first 100 days would make gun makers and sellers civilly liable for misuse of guns they sell. That means people could sue manufacturers whenever a crime, accident, or suicide occurs with a gun. We aren’t talking about cases where there was a product liability issue or where laws are violated, such as selling a gun without a valid background check. While it isn’t stated, the goal is to put the gun makers out of business.

Today, Representative Mark Cisneros (R-Muscatine) of House District 91 voted to support a constitutional amendment to protect Iowans’ right to keep and bear arms, helping pass it through the Iowa House.

HJR-4 would ensure Iowans’ right to keep and bear arms is constitutionally protected by adding the following amendment to the Constitution, “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The sovereign state of Iowa affirms and recognizes this right to be a fundamental individual right. Any and all restrictions of this right shall be subject to strict scrutiny.”

One of the oldest blade patterns, and perhaps the most controversial in modern times, are daggers or spear-point blades. Looking back to our Stone Age ancestors, we see that oftentimes knives, spear points, and arrowheads were fashioned from flint, obsidian, or chert. In some time that’s now lost to mankind and well before the Bronze Age, one of these ancient arms makers realized he needed symmetry to improve the aerodynamics and accuracy of his spear or arrow, and this translated well with regard to making knives and swords.
