CA Ammunition Controls Force Temporary Halt to Walmart Ammo Sales

by AWR Hawkins Newly implemented ammunition controls forced a temporary halt to ammo sales at 131 Walmart stores throughout California. On January 1, 2018, Breitbart News reported that California’s ammunition controls took effect. These controls require that all ammunition be purchased in-state and that those purchases be conducted via a California-approved dealer. Moreover, an individual must secure a “California vendor license” to be recognized as a California-approved ammunition dealer. This means that if the state is delayed in issuing the licenses dealers will necessarily be unable to sell ammunition. Said dealers will have to wait to receive their licenses...

Bloomberg Turns Firearm Burglaries into Campaign for More Gun Control for Gun Stores

by AWR Hawkins Bloomberg is using ATF reports on gun store burglaries to call for more gun control for licensed firearm dealers. Such controls have been pushed in California, where they would serve to drive neighborhood, mom & pop gun stores out of business. In a word, the expensive security measures would allow only those with the deepest pockets, and/or the largest conglomeration backing, to survive. Bloomberg quotes ATF numbers to show that gun store burglaries across the U.S. went from 3,355 in 2013 to 7,841 in 2017.  They point out that gun-friendly Texas had the largest number of guns...

Washington AG Pushes ‘High Capacity’ Mag Ban, Permits to Possess ‘Assault Weapons’

by AWR Hawkins Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson (D) is pushing a ban on “high capacity” magazines and a permit requirement for “assault weapon” possession. SeattlePI reports that Ferguson is also seeking a 10-day waiting period for permitted “assault weapon” purchasers and enhanced background checks to acquire the rifles. Gun control proponents seek to justify their gun control campaigns by pointing to high-profile crimes in which AR-15s or AK-47s were used. Yet ironically, a close examination of one of the most heinous attacks–that one on Orlando Pulse–reveals that the gunman complied with the very gun controls being pushed in...

Gov. Ralph Northam’s Push to Ban Private Gun Sales Defeated in Committee

by AWR Hawkins Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s (D) push to ban private gun sales was defeated in the Virginia Senate Courts of Justice Committee Monday morning. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Second Amendment supporters held a Monday morning rally in Capitol Square while Northam planned speak to gun control supporters mid-afternoon. On January 10, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Northam was pushing a ban on private gun sales by seeking a requirement that all gun sales, retail or private, be performed via a background check. This would have required law-abiding Virginians to seek out a Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) to...

The Heckler & Koch M27 Is the Marines New Rifle

by Matthew Moss The U.S. Marine Corps has picked the Heckler & Koch M27 as its new infantry rifle. Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen.

Incoming Virginia Gov: Banning Private Gun Sales a Priority for 2018

by AWR Hawkins Incoming Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) indicates that banning private gun sales in the state will be a priority for 2018. In other words, he will continue to pursue the gun controls that outgoing Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) pursued but failed to secure. NBC Washington reports that Northam will be pushing “universal background checks for gun buyers.” This means private gun sales will be treated like retail sales, with a point-of-sale background checks required at time of purchase. Such a framework will require a law-abiding gun owner to seek out a government representative, a federal firearms license...

Anti-Gun Shannon Watts Reams NRA For Pro-Police Video, Gets Slammed

By Hank Berrien  On Tuesday, the National Rifle Association (NRA) posted a video honoring American police on #LawEnforcementAppreciationDay. Our nation’s police officers put their lives on the line every day to protect those in need—including the ignorant and ungrateful who direct criticism toward the entire profession. Stand with us.

4 Biggest Second Amendment Fights on 2018 Horizon

by AWR Hawkins With 2018 underway Breitbart News thought it wise to point out four Second Amendment fights that the House and Senate need to address sooner rather than later. Some of these fights are issues that were undertaken but not secured in 2017, things like national reciprocity and the Hearing Protection Act. Others are things that came up and need to be defeated. These would include things like the backdoor push for bump stock gun control. The bottom line—there are things to be done in defense of the Second Amendment now. National Reciprocity—National reciprocity for concealed carry passed...
