Federal Judge BLOCKS California’s High-Capacity Magazine Ban

by Brock Simmons Federal Judge Roger Benitez has granted an injunction filed by the NRA to stop California’s magazine ban. Earlier in the year, the California Assembly passed a bill that would prohibit even possessing a magazine of 10 rounds or more. For many years, it had been legal to own such a magazine, just not legal to purchase one.   On Thursday, San Diego based Judge Benitez issued the ruling, citing “Any previously law-abiding person in California who still possesses a firearm magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds will begin their new life of crime.” “If...

Rahm Emanuel, Bill de Blasio Fight National Reciprocity for Law-Abiding Citizens

by AWR Hawkins Mayors Rahm Emanuel and Bill de Blasio are fighting against legislation that would recognize national concealed carry reciprocity for law-abiding citizens. The legislation, H.R. 38, was introduced by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) on January 3, 2017. It makes the concealed carry license of one state valid in the other 49 states, just as a driver’s license from one state is valid in the other 49. National reciprocity picked up new momentum following the June 14 Alexandria congressional baseball practice attack. That attack highlighted that the current patchwork of concealed carry laws prevents law-abiding members of Congress and congressional...

Sheriff Deputizes University Professors so They Can Carry on Campus for Self-Defense

by AWR Hawkins The Polk County Sheriff’s Office is training faculty of Lakeland, Florida’s Southeastern University to carry concealed weapons for self-defense and is deputizing them to get around the state’s ban on campus carry. The state’s ban allows law enforcement–including sheriff’s deputies–to carry on campus. NRATV’s Ginny Simone reports that the program is the first of its kind, and one that comes in the wake of the heinous attack on Republican lawmakers in Alexandria, Virginia. Polk County Sheriff Grady said he “will swear in the staff as special deputies, giving them the authorities [to possess firearms] when every...

Marine Vet in Gunfight with Home Invasion Suspects, Wounds Three

by AWR Hawkins Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) wants bills for congressional carry to be added to the national reciprocity legislation for the common man.

I sank four ammo cans full of ammunition to the bottom of a pond for one year… here’s what happened when I opened them

by Mike Adams I just ruined over a thousand rounds of ammo to find out which ammo storage containers really work in harsh environments. A little over a year ago, I sank four ammo containers full of ammunition to the bottom of a muddy pond. Two of the ammo storage containers were made out of a rugged poly material, and two of the containers were common mil-spec steel cans used for storing .50 ammo or .30 ammo. All of the containers had rubber gaskets. After one year, I dragged the four ammo cans out of the pond. I opened...

by AWR Hawkins Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) was not at the Congressional baseball practice when a committed leftist attacked, but watching the toll paid by colleagues who were there reminded him that Americans must be armed for self-defense.

But he did seek to remind Americans that self-defense is a personal responsibility. Writing in the Chicago Tribune, Collins said:  When I hear concerns from loved ones, friends and constituents fearing for our...
