Although celebrities and the liberal elite are not known for their support of the Second Amendment, some women in the entertainment, music and media industry have earned the "girls with guns" label. These well-armed women are not afraid of firearms and many of them take pride in being able to use their guns for self-defense if needed.

Calling it part of the right of self-defense, the state House voted Thursday to allow those with permits to carry concealed weapons to bring them into public buildings.

The 33-25 vote came over objections of foes, all but one of them Democrats. They said HB 2320 permits government agencies to keep their buildings gun-free solely by buying metal detectors and having security guards at each public entrance. Rep. Jennifer Benally, D-Tuba City, said the County Supervisors Association told her the cost just to those governments would be $59 million a year in what she called “unfunded mandates.”

So maybe, as the Sandy Hook Promise advocates, we start with steps like more intentional parenting and school safety officers, that almost all of us can agree on. And then step up to ideas like “smart guns” that are harder for kids to accidentally shoot one another with. And eventually reach the level of political responsibility and leadership, where we speak not of gun “control” but gun regulation.

While eyes were focused on the Selma golden jubilee celebrating bygone battles, a current-day civil-rights battle was being waged — and ignored by the mainstream media. It took place at the Spokane, Washington, federal courthouse, where armed Second Amendment supporters confronted federal officials.

And the feds backed down.
 

Two-point, three-point or single-point tactical slings?

When I first joined the military, my M-16 came with a tight sling from the buttstock to the forend. It reminded me of the leather sling on my 30-06 hunting rifle I bought as a 15-year-old kid to hunt big game. The sling was nothing fancy and tight up to the rifle so it allowed us troops to sling the rifle over our shoulders (muzzle up) for drill and ceremony (D&C).

The Administration is going after ammo but that’s no surprise. All Barack Obama had to do is watch the popular TV show “Revolution.” In that show, the totalitarian leader didn’t go after the firearms, here went after the ammo. It is a simple ideal. Without ammo, a gun is no more than a high tech club!

9 Ways Black People Seriously Fought Back During the Civil Rights Era

The notion that the Civil Rights Movement in the South was strictly a nonviolent movement remains a dominant theme and a misrepresentation of history. In countless Southern communities, Black people picked up arms, organized, intimidated and met force with force to defend their leaders, communities and lives. In particular, Black people relied on armed self-defense in communities where federal government officials failed to protect them from the violence of racists and segregationists who were often supported by local law enforcement. Here are some of the many instances of how they fought back.

If you don't want concealed weapons in the local library, you'll have to pay to keep them out.

That's the message in a House-passed bill that allows concealed weapons in public buildings and events. If it makes it through the Senate, House Bill 2320 deserves a new veto from Gov. Doug Ducey.

Jan Brewer vetoed three such bills.

The bill, sponsored by Republican Rep. Brenda Barton, puts a heavy burden on local municipalities. If residents tell their local officials they don't want guns in their neighborhood library, for example, the local government has to cough up the money for security guards or gun lockers.

The Obama administration is reconsidering its proposal to ban a popular type of rifle bullet—named for their distinctive green tips—after gun owners, lobbyists and members of Congress opposed the ban, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) said on Tuesday.

At issue is whether green tips qualify as armor-piercing ammunition, and if so, whether the ATF should revoke a 30-year-old regulatory exemption for the rounds based on their popularity in shooting sports.
