Self Defense Legislation Would Legalize What Most of Us Would Consider Murder

I am a staunch proponent of 2nd amendment rights, but legislation down in Bismarck goes well beyond the concept of keeping and bearing arms. It would expand the definitions of permissible use of force to protect yourself and your property to a troubling degree. The bill is SB2315, introduced by state Senator David Clemens of

Would Washington DC's Mandatory $250,000 Insurance Policy For Gun Owners Be Constitutional?

The gun grabbers know they don’t have the political horsepower to actually grab the guns. So, instead, they’re just going to make buying, possessing, carrying and using a gun so fraught with red tape and expense that nobody does it. WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — The D.C.

Publicly, many law enforcement officials can be quite outspoken against private gun ownership and notions

Someone Should Tell Joe Biden: More Crime Is Committed With Shot Guns Than "Assault Weapons"
