Every day, people survive car accidents because they wore a seatbelt. Also, every day, people were able to stop an attack or defend themselves because they chose to carry a firearm.

A Girl and A Gun is a female-only shooting league with goals to empower women with firearms in sport and self defense.

"Most gun shops are male dominated," Lubbock Chapter Facilitator Natasha Snodgrass claimed. "The first gun shop I ever went to purchase a firearm, I kind of felt out of place. He tried to sell me a pink 22 revolver and I found that highly offensive."

The Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton declined to say if she thinks the Second Amendment guarantees the constitutional right to bear arms during an interview Sunday with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

Stephanopoulos asked Clinton, “Do you believe that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right, that it’s not linked to service in a militia?”

In the Republican primary for Governor, it’s clear from her TV commercial that Catherine Hanaway knows how to heft a shotgun.

The fleeting image of Hanaway loading a double-barrel shotgun and taking aim at some unseen target in the sky is accompanied by a voice over explaining she supports gun rights.

With time running short in the legislative session, the prospects of reforming New York’s much-abused gravity knife law remain very much in doubt.

Republicans in the New York Senate still seem lukewarm to any change, allowing a bill championed by Assemblyman Dan Quart, a Manhattan Democrat, to languish for months without a vote. And for the first time, a powerful opponent to reform — Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. — is coming out of the shadows and going full-bore to scuttle Democratic efforts.

The enemies of the Second Amendment, and the friends of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, have just been caught red-handed in either the fabrication of a phony and fraudulent documentary to support their cause, or else an outright Federal gun felony. I encourage American Thinker readers to circulate this story as widely as possible in letters to the editor, social media, and talk radio to discredit them and destroy Hillary Clinton's candidacy through the collateral public relations damage and her own role in the Million Mom March's diversion of tax-exempt money into election-related activities.

But amidst the many good ideas for stopping terrorism, Gavin Newsom has offered California a sneaky attempt at disarming law-abiding citizens. His ballot proposition is the worst kind of response we can offer to these threats. Under the guise of regulating ammunition and preventing terrorism, Newsom’s initiative is little more than a backdoor, authoritarian plan for disarmament of minorities, something that California’s 1.2 million Jews know all too well.
 

Year-to-date, Background Checks Jump Nearly Three Million From 2015

The latest report from the FBI on the NICS background checks shows 1,870,000 Americans applying for permission to purchase a firearm. This number doesn’t include private unchecked transfers, as many states still allow the freedom of individual citizens to buy, sell, transfer, or give away their firearms without a background check. It also, of course, doesn’t count police departments, government agencies, or criminals.

But it illustrates the direct correlation between political pressure on the Second Amendment and the natural, predictable result: Americans are arming themselves for whatever comes.

On Saturday morning, I got a call from former U.S. Senator Tom Coburn. He told me I had made a mistake in saying the Article Five issue would be voted on by the people in November. The good Senator was right – the Article Five convention does not require voter approval – just the approval of the state legislature, which it received on April 27.

Last week President Barack Obama answered a few questions after participating in a PBS NewsHour town hall meeting in Elkhart, Ind. A local gun shop owner, Doug Rhude, stood up in the audience and asked: “Knowing that we apply common sense to other issues in our society, specifically holding irresponsible people accountable for their actions when they drink and drive and kill somebody; and we do that without restricting control of cars and cell phones to the rest of us, the good guys; why then, do you and Hillary want to control and restrict and limit gun manufacturers, gun owners, and the responsible use of guns and ammunition to the rest of us, the good guys, instead of holding the bad guys accountable for their actions?”
 

OK: If lawmakers can tote guns at capitol, so should everyone

What’s sauce for the goose is not sauce for the gander in other ways, too. For instance, though our elected officials wet all over themselves in their haste to lick the collective boots of the NRA, and though they push at every opportunity for regulation-free open carry in every possible venue, their one exception would be the state capitol building.

Metal detectors at the entrance prevent visitors from bringing in guns. Though our lawmakers insist on the wholesale right to carry weapons, that right stops at their own door.

Robert Uithoven, campaign manager of NRA Nevadans for Freedom, told Nevada NewsMakers this week that the Question 1 gun control ballot initiative is an effort to “strip law-abiding citizens of their rights to own and use firearms.”

Question 1 is a gun control ballot inititative bought and paid for by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg that would make Nevada’s laws on private firearm transfers more onerous than California’s law.

“Arguably the most important cartridge development for mainstream sport revolver handgunners since the .44 Magnum, the .327 is a welcome addition to the .32 family. With the addition of 0.125-inch of case length (compared to the .32 H&R Magnum) and a SAAMI upper pressure limit of 45,000 psi, the .327 is truly a magnum cartridge and capable of true magnum performance. It is no small trick to send 110- to 115-grain bullets flying along at 1,500 to 1,600 fps, depending on barrel length.

Last Friday morning started as any other morning would for Kenneth Lee, the owner of Pennsbury Pharmacy on New Falls Road in Falls Township, but by 9:56 a.m., the day took a turn which would dramatically alter the lives of all involved.

Lee was manning the family-owned pharmacy on a slow Friday morning, taking care of his usual duties on the computer. From one screen behind the counter, Lee could see surveillance camera angles from the inside and outside of the store. A minivan pulled up and a masked man with what looked like a rifle or shotgun jumped out.
 

FL: Florida Supreme Court justices weigh challenge to open-carry ban

Law-abiding Floridians should be allowed to openly carry firearms in public, a gun-rights groups argued Wednesday to the Florida Supreme Court on behalf of a man arrested four years ago while strolling with a visibly holstered weapon in Fort Pierce.

Florida Carry attorney Eric Friday said the state's nearly 30-year-old concealed-weapons law violates the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment, which he said requires people to be allowed to openly carry guns. Lawmakers this year considered a proposal to allow people with concealed-weapons licenses to openly carry firearms, but the bill did not pass.
 

FL: Court urged to kill ban on open gun carry in Florida

In arguments during which the term “Wild West” was freely tossed about, Eric Friday, attorney for Florida Carry, said the state’s almost 30-year-old law should be overturned by justices.

Almost 1.8 million Floridians have such permits — the most of any state.

Friday told the court that the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment doesn’t stop states from regulating the use of weapons. But the concealed weapons law crafted by the state Legislature creates an illegal intrusion.

“What they’ve done here is they’ve taken it a step beyond just regulating the manner to bear arms,” Friday said. “They’ve actually denied the right to bear arms until a person seeks and obtains government permission.”

Police report an incident wherein two men who were looking at guns at a local pawn shop. The men asked the clerk to show them several guns in the display case. While they were handling those pistols, one of the men pulled out a gun of his own and pointed it at the clerk.

The other man then proceeded to put the store’s guns in his backpack. Police said the man pointing the gun at the clerk tried to fire it, but the gun didn’t go off.

After the attempt to shoot the clerk, both men ran out of the store. That’s when the clerk pulled out his own gun and fired one round at the suspects. He apparently missed as no evidence of blood has been discovered, but police are still investigating.

During a meeting of the Democratic party's platform drafting committee Wednesday, committee member and businesswoman Bonnie Schaefer said that no one should be able to own a gun.

"I really don't personally think anyone should have a gun," Schaefer said after testimony by Lucia McBath, a spokeswoman for Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. "That's just my own philosophy."

Schaefer, an executive appointed to the committee by Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, said that keeping guns from "mentally ill people and criminals" was not enough.
 

NH: 2A win handed down in New Hampshire carry rights case

The New Hampshire Supreme Court last week unanimously agreed with a gun rights advocate that recent rule changes affecting nonresident concealed carry permit holders went too far.

Scott Bach is the executive director of the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs, and, due to restrictive may-issue practices in his home state, from 2004 to 2013, held a New Hampshire nonresident license to carry a concealed handgun. The reason Bach could no longer renew his permit in New Hampshire was that the state Department of Safety changed the rules for non-residents to require that applicants first have a valid carry permit in their home state.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. — James Madison, The Federalist Papers, No. 46
