2nd Amendment Under Fire
As Colorado freedom lovers set their sights on ousting another of the State’s gun-grabbing legislators, the State’s anti-gun governor is telling outside anti-gun groups like New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns to stay away.
In September, State Senate President John Morse and State Senator Angela Giron were ousted in recall votes even though MAIG and Bloomberg poured $350,000 into their races. A new recall campaign is targeting another gun-grabbing State Senator, Evie Hudak of Denver. Petition organizers have until Dec. 3 to collect 18,900 signatures to get a recall vote on the ballot.
Democratic California Governor Jerry Brown vetoed a slew of draconian gun bills last week, rejecting them as an “infringement on gun owners’ rights.” But he inexplicably signed four other laws that define infringement.
This article, written by University of Louisville associate professor of economics Audrey D. Kline, Ph.D., was originally printed by the Ludwig von Mises Institute on Oct. 8.

Abbott, echoing the concerns of conservatives throughout the Nation, contends that the U.N. treaty poses a threat to Americans’ 2nd Amendment right […]
Yesterday, Secretary of State John Kerry signed the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, despite warnings from 130 members of Congress and a vote of 53-46 in the Senate earlier this year to “uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”
Those involved in the traditional political realm of left and right deem me delusional. I am labeled a “radical” by those on the right and a “reactionary” by those on the left. In fact, I am neither.

With only a week to go before new gun laws that limit “assault weapons” and require fingerprints and licenses for handguns take effect, Maryland residents are buying firearms at an unprecedented rate. Reportedly, the last-minute rush to beat the gun grab has resulted in residents snapping up weapons at a rate of more than 1,000 per day.
A Democratic strategist said in a recent MSNBC interview that guns rights activists are wrong in claiming that if more people were carrying guns, mass shooters would be stopped more quickly.
