Dallas Sheriff Joins Gabby Giffords’ Gun Control Group, Comes Out Against Concealed Carry

by AWR Hawkins Lupe Valdez the sheriff of Dallas County, Texas, is a member of Gabby Giffords’ gun control group, and a solidly against concealed carry for law-abiding citizens on a national basis. Like Giffords, Michael Bloomberg, and Bloomberg-funded gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety, Valdez is calling for Congress to refuse to pass legislation that would make the concealed carry permit of one state valid in every state. Instead, Valdez likes the patchwork of concealed carry laws whereby a citizen is considered law-abiding in his home state but could face serious criminal charges for crossing a state...

Gun-Controlled Mexico Second Only to Syria in ‘Armed Conflict,’ Violence

by AWR Hawkins A report compiled by the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) shows that gun-controlled Mexico is second only to Syria when it comes to “armed conflict” and violence. It should be noted that Syria has been swallowed up by civil war for years, yet remains the only country with more violence than Mexico–according to the study. NPR reported the findings, noting, “The annual survey’s lead investigator says Mexico’s second-place ranking was surprising, considering the deaths are nearly all attributable to small arms, and not tanks or aircraft fire as in the political wars of Syria or Iraq.”...

Gun-Controlled Chicago: Thieves Break Into Car of Top Cop

by AWR Hawkins Over the weekend the SUV in which Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson travels was broken into and the contents tossed about. Johnson lives in the Bridgeport area and other nearby cars were also targeted. According to NBC News, “The vehicle’s interior was found in disarray on Saturday morning when officers went to… [Johnson’s home] to pick him up.” The vehicle was unmarked so Chicago Police do not believe it was not targeted.

Gun Ownership, Shooting Classes Surge Among Black Women

by AWR Hawkins Black women are flocking to firearm classes in cities like Atlanta, Cincinnati, Dallas, and Savannah, learning to shoot and use guns for self-defense. The classes are specifically geared toward the women, bearing names like “Trigger Happy Firearm Instruction,” “Brown Girls Project,” and “Black Woman’s Defense League,” among others. All are designed to teach black women how to properly use a firearm and to carry it in a way that it is accessible and ready if needed for self-defense. The Guardian reports that domestic violence–being able to stop and survive such violence–is one of the big motivators for this...

Op-ed paints gun owners as wannabe thrill killers inspired by John Wayne BY: Stephen GutowskiFollow @@StephenGutowski The New York Times ran an op-ed Monday attacking the National Rifle Association’s National Firearms Museum and gun owners.

Dem Lawmakers Target Stand Your Ground Law in North Carolina

By John Falkenberg Democrat lawmakers are taking aim at second amendment rights in the state of North Carolina. The current “stand your ground” laws in the Tar Heel State, which permits law-abiding citizens to defend themselves if potential criminals invade their car, home, or workplace, are in danger. House Bill 723, also known as the Gun Safety Act, would eliminate the vehicle and workplace provisions that protect gun owners in state law, and limit that to just the home, according to WNCT. State Reps. Verla Insko and Pricey Harrison — both Democrats, of course — introduced the bill on April...
