Interior Secretary Zinke Day One: Repeals Obama-Era Lead Ammunition Ban

by AWR Hawkins Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke signed a Secretarial Order on Thursday repealing the lead ammunition ban issued the day before Barack Obama left office. It is interesting to note that Thursday was Zinke’s first day as Interior Secretary and repealing the onerous ban one of his first actions. On January 19, the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Lawrence Keane described the lead ammunition ban as the Obama administration’s “parting shot” against the hunting community. The ban was contained in Director’s Order 219–from National Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe–and it required regional directors to work with state-level agencies to...

AG Sessions Directs DOJ to ‘Increase Prosecutions of Gun-Law Violations’

by AWR Hawkins Attorney General Jeff Sessions directed the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Monday to “increase prosecutions of gun-law violations” so that suspects know they will pay a price for using guns in crime. He also redirected the DOJ to take a harder stance against “violent crime” in general. According to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), Sessions said “state and local people” with whom he has spoken have already expressed concern “about a lack of federal support and leadership.” Sessions spoke of his support for “a 1990s-era effort that sought harsh sentences for felons caught with firearms as a way to...

Trump Signs Repeal of Obama’s Social Security Gun Ban

by AWR Hawkins On a day when legislation benefiting women and black colleges and universities was signed with much pomp and circumstance, President Trump quietly followed through on his pledge to defend the Second Amendment by signing the repeal of Barack Obama’s Social Security gun ban. The U.S, House voted to repeal the ban on February 2 and the Senate voted to repeal it on February 15. The ban was fashioned behind closed doors in the summer of 2015 and Breitbart News reported: The specific details of the ban are unknown, as it is being put together “outside of public view.” But...

GOP Senator Introduces Companion Bill to House National Reciprocity Legislation

by AWR Hawkins On Monday, Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) introduced a companion bill to the National Reciprocity legislation that was introduced in the House by Representative Richard Hudson (R-NC-8) on January 3. Gun Owners of America describes Cornyn’s bill — S. 446 — as “the near-identical” match to Hudson’s bill, indicating that both bills honor concealed carry permits and permitless carry laws. This means a concealed carry license from one state would be valid in every state, and proof of residence from a permitless carry state would serve to allow law-abiding residents of that state to carry in every...

New Hampshire Governor Signs Constitutional Carry Into Law

Fairfax, Va. – Today was a great victory for gun owners in New Hampshire when Gov. Chris Sununu signed Senate Bill 12 into law, allowing law-abiding New Hampshirites to carry their firearms in the manner that best suits their needs. “New Hampshire now joins an ever-growing number of states in passing constitutional carry,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “Despite the best efforts of Michael Bloomberg-funded groups to distort the truth, the New Hampshire legislature and governor stood strong for freedom.” Sununu’s signature on SB 12 makes New Hampshire the 12th state to allow constitutional carry.  New Hampshire joins...

You Have No Right to Own a ‘Military-Style’ Rifle, According to Federal Appeals Court Decision

By Jason Howerton A federal appeals court in Maryland ruled Tuesday that semi-automatic rifles, commonly referred to as “military-style assault weapons,” are not protected under the Second Amendment. The ruling came after the state’s so-called “assault weapons” ban was challenged on constitutional grounds. However, the court easily upheld the ban with a 10-4 vote. Maryland’s gun ban also outlaws magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. Getty Images/George Frey Judge Robert King reportedly referred to the banned rifles as “weapons of war,” and cited recent mass shootings in his ruling: “Put simply, we have no power to extend Second...

Permitless Carry Passes Montana Senate, Headed to Governor’s DeskPermitless Carry Passes Montana Senate, Headed to Governor’s Desk

by AWR Hawkins On February 15, the Montana Senate passed permitless carry legislation which will now head to Governor Steve Bullock’s (D) desk. The legislation was sponsored by state Representative Bill Harris (R-Winnett) and is designed to make carry laws uniform throughout the state. Currently, Montana requires residents to have a concealed carry permit before carrying in a city or town. But the Montana DOJ says, “You may carry a concealed weapon without a permit if you are outside the official boundaries of a city or town or the confines of a logging, lumbering, mining or railroad camp.” Harris’s legislation...

At the world’s largest gun show, thankfulness for Trump

By Salena Zito You could walk around last week’s Great American Outdoor Show, held in the massive Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center, and carry your firearms anywhere among the 650,000 square feet of displays. You could handle just about every personal weapon known to man. You could test-fire them, too, at an indoor range. Yet, the one thing you couldn’t do was buy a gun and take it home. All of which was fine for most of the nearly quarter-million outdoor enthusiasts who packed the complex to see more than 1,100 elaborate exhibits and hundreds of outdoor-related...

The Racist History of Gun Control Libs Don’t Want Anyone to Know About

I would hope everyone knows that gun control — at least in the form that the left likes to push it nowadays — is unconstitutional and ineffective. But did you know it was racist? That’s the shocking thing that liberals don’t like to talk about — and the National Rifle Association is trying to remind us of. In a web episode of “The DL with Dana Loesch” on NRA TV released last week, the conservative pundit makes sure that Americans know the true nature of gun control’s origins. Take a look:    In the 1892 pamphlet “Southern Horrors: Lynch...
