2nd Amendment Under Fire


Reid: Senate Doesn’t Have The Votes For More Gun Control

Following the shooting tragedy that occurred at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, some top Democrats wasted no time in calling for a renewed Congressional fight for tougher gun control laws. But on Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said that gun control legislation doesn’t have the votes to be approved by the Senate. Therefore, […]

First Recall; Now Repeal: Colorado 2nd Amendment Groups Aim For Overturn Of Gun Laws

Backers of the successful recall of two Colorado State Senators are pledging to continue fighting for the repeal of the same gun control laws that led to the two Senators’ ouster, following their support of the anti-2nd Amendment legislation earlier this year.

Colorado Recall Votes Send A Signal To The Elected Class: Representation Matters

Colorado Recall Votes Send A Signal To The Elected Class: Representation Matters

On Tuesday, both of the Colorado State Senators who faced a voter recall — a culmination of massive public backlash over their support of new, unConstitutional gun control legislation — lost their jobs. Democrats quickly demonstrated they’d learned absolutely nothing from the grassroots-bred ouster.

Tomorrow’s Recall Vote For Gun Control-Supporting Colorado Senators Draws Strong Early Turnout

Tomorrow’s the day when two Colorado State Senators will find out whether their support of new, controversial gun laws adopted earlier this year will put a major damper on their own political careers.

Gun Grabbers Deny A Right To Self-Defense

[T]here is no indication that the Framers of the (2nd) Amendment intended to enshrine the common-law right of self-defense in the Constitution.” — Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, in his dissent in the District of Columbia v. Heller

The 2nd Amendment is in serious trouble from the gun grabbers. You have seen the overt way in which they have attacked the right to keep and bear arms through efforts to pass a ban on so-called assault weapons and through President Barack Obama’s executive orders that infringe on the right.

Obama Administration Announces New Gun Control Executive Orders

Harvard Study Finds Violent Crime Rises As Gun Ownership Falls

Harvard University has released a study on whether it’s possible to discern patterns of cause and effect between gun ownership and the incidence of violent crime. Study authors Don B. Kates and Gary Mauser did find such a relationship: an inverse one. The study, called “Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?” compares data on […]

The NRA’s NSA Moment

The NRA’s NSA Moment

The National Rifle Association has been a steadfast vocal opponent to any gun-control proposal that involves a national gun owner database. But a report published by BuzzFeed on Wednesday indicates that the gun lobbying organization has compiled its own gun owner registry.

Maryland ‘Substantial Reason’ Requirement Challenged

There’s an important gun rights case pending before the U.S. Supreme Court that could be as significant as recent gun-rights wins like District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) and McDonald v. Chicago (2010). The case comes out of Maryland, where the State requires an applicant for license to carry a handgun to demonstrate “a good and substantial reason to wear, carry, or transport a handgun as a reasonable precaution against apprehended danger.”

Baltimore County resident Raymon Woollard had a license to carry for six years. It was granted after a violent home invasion attack by his son-in-law. But when the license came up for renewal again, his request was denied because the attack had occurred seven years earlier and he no longer demonstrated a sufficient “substantial reason” requirement, per Maryland law.

Gun Haters Continue To Vilify Zimmerman, Gun Owners, Stand Your Ground Despite Jury Acquittal

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has become the latest American anti-gun group to exploit the tragic death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin in order to undermine Americans’ 2nd Amendment rights.
