"The pro-gun movement is proud that 48 states have some sort of mechanism that allows concealed carry by law abiding citizens. Most of the 48 states have 'shall issue' laws ..."

"But, shall-issue laws still require a citizen to ask the government for permission, and often force permit holders to follow restrictions on when and how they can carry a gun. In many states, concealed carry permits can be revoked on a whim. There are even some states that allow law enforcement officers to take possession of a permit holder's gun without an arrest." ...

"At the time, critics predicted that the new rule would frighten families away from the parks, and that the number of animals shot by gun owners in the parks would increase exponentially."

"So what actually happened?"

"Not much at all, noted David Barna, spokesperson for the National Park Service, in an email. There was 'really almost no impact,' he wrote." ...

They always bring up the standard leftist arguments in favor of gun control. My response has always been the following: When a European country is taken over by a dictatorship, Europeans must either submit or be killed. At least in the United States, the American people, being armed, have another option: the ability to defend themselves from military murderers by shooting back at them."

When it came to David's and my attention that the [Project Gunwalker] whistleblowers were out there willing to tell their stories, Larry Pratt was one of the first guys we called for advice on how and who to contact to make that happen. GOA worked quietly behind the scenes, helping us get in touch with the right people in Sessions' and Grassley's offices. ... At every turn, Larry and the GOA were there to help ... It is the height of irony that the FOX build-up to the story on Traver credited NRA with its opposition, whereas it was GOA that was, like the Gunwalker scandal, early in the trenches against Traver while the NRA sat back and calculated the odds, as the Lairds of Fairfax always do." ...

One of my story’s plot points involved a brush with Somali pirates.
