“Handgun Trigger Safety Act” Introduced in US Senate

What a load of crap. This bill was introduced today by Sen. Ed Markie (D) today. The bill calls to earmark money for “gun violence” research, as well as making all new handguns have technology that only allow them to be fired by their owner (because there is never a situation where someone else may want to shoot your pistol for a perfectly legitimate purpose). In addition to this, the bill would make selling a …

Democrat Support for Colorado ‘Hi-Cap’ Magazine Ban Repeal

A bill was introduced in Colorado yesterday to rollback the 15rd magazine capacity limit and some other garbage that was passed in the state last year. It seems like all of the good pieces of legislation are extremely short, and this bill is no different at just 2 pages. The Colorado House is currently sitting at 37 Democrats, and 28 Republicans. The Senate Democrats are only outnumbering the Republicans by one seat after the recalls …

Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2014

The Library of Congress finally got the full text of the bill up so we can read it. Ben and I were concerned about a backdoor in the bill, and we talked about that on Episode 64 of the podcast, but after reading the full text, it’s a pretty straight forward, one page, vanilla bill. We definitely need to keep a close eye on it, as it would be very easy to slip in a …

The Misguided Moms Actually Get It Right…

A Kentucky legislator didn’t clear the chamber of her concealed carry pistol, and had an negligent discharge in her office on Wednesday. The Misguided Moms apparently made a statement that actually makes perfect sense: The Kentucky chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America said lawmakers should be held to the highest standards and never put others at risk. As someone who holds a lot of contempt for most of our elected officials …

SCOTUS To Hear Straw Purchase Case

This should be pretty interesting. It seems that the practical definition of what a straw purchase is, and how it is applied in the real world is something that many gun owners have questions about. WASHINGTON (AP) – The Supreme Court will decide whether a Virginia man should have been convicted of being a “straw purchaser” after buying a gun in-state and selling it to his uncle in Pennsylvania. The high court on Tuesday agreed …

Things Spiral Out of Control in Cali

While we were all biting our nails waiting for the poll results for the ouster of two anti-gun Colorado Senators on on Tuesday, something much more sinister was going on in California. A bill was passed by the California legislature and sent to the Governor that will ban the sale of all semi-automatic rifles that have a detachable magazine that holds more than 10rds. What semi-auto rifles are on the market that have a detachable …

Colorado Peeps! Today is the day!

Take your state back today! Hit the polls and recall the anti-gun, anti-liberty fools that stripped you of your freedom. Remember, Sen. Morse believes that you are a “sickness on our souls” for being a gun owner. Hit us up on the voicemail line (919-295-6128) and let us know what the polls are like. I’m interested to hear what kind of presence the antis have given all of the money they have received from Bloomberg.

Moms Demand Action Doesn’t do Boycotts

Moms Demand Action organized a “Skip Starbucks Day” this past Saturday 8/24/2013, but according to their “About” page on their website, they don’t do boycotts… Moms Demand Action is not asking our government to ban guns, nor are we boycotting companies or colleges. We simply support common-sense solutions to the overwhelming and increasing epidemic of gun violence in America. Whether the gun violence happens in urban Chicago, suburban Virginia, or rural Texas, we must act …
