Michigan House: The Second Amendment is Your Concealed Carry Permit

by AWR Hawkins On Wednesday the Michigan House passed legislation to stop requiring a government-issued permit for residents to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense. Prior to the vote, state Rep. Lee Chatfield (R-Levering) said, “There seems to be some confusion of what our constitutional rights are. Our right to defend ourselves comes from our Creator. Today’s a good day, when you get to vote to uphold the constitution.”  The legislation passed on a vote of 59 to 49. According to the Lansing State Journal, state Rep. Donna Lasinski (D-Scio) argued against allowing law-abiding citizens to carry guns for self-defense...

FBI: Handgun Murders Dropped when These States Abolished Concealed Permit Requirements

by AWR Hawkins FBI crime report figures show that Alaska, Arizona, and Wyoming–three states that abolished their concealed requirement years ago–have since witnessed a decreased in handgun murders. This runs completely counter to the left’s doom and gloom predictions whereby they claim doing away with a government-issued carry permit will mean more bad guys carrying guns, more shootings and violence, etc. FBI figures published by the NRA show that Alaska’s handgun murder rate “declined after the state enacted permitless carry in 2003.” Moreover, in the years since Alaska’s permit requirement was abolished “handgun murders have declined as a percentage...

Watch: Man Tries to Rob Store Where Everyone Inside Had a Gun

By V Saxena   An attempted armed robbery of a convenience store Wednesday in Brazil failed spectacularly due primarily to the fact that the majority of the customers and/or bystanders inside the store were armed to the teeth. Surveillance footage uploaded to LiveLeak showed the unsuspecting thug charging into the convenience store with a helmet on his head and a gun in his hand. As the bystanders closest to the thug put up their hands and distracted his attention, another man slipped behind the shelves, pulled out his weapon and fired at the would-be robber, causing him to collapse to the...

Pennsylvania Republicans Push Bill to Make Gun Owners a ‘Protected Class’

by AWR Hawkins Twenty-four Republican Representatives and one Democrat are pushing legislation that would make Pennsylvania gun owners a “protected class.” Gun owners would be protected from discrimination by having their right to keep and bear arms firmly ensconced in the Pennsylvania Human Rights Act (PHRA). According to the Pennsylvania Record, the legislation–House Bill 38–“is currently in committee,” but would protect gun-owning employees from employers who want to ban firearms on workplace property. For example, HB 38 would bar such employers from preventing gun owners from keeping firearms in their cars that could be retrieved for self-defense. CeaseFirePA’s Shira Goodman opposes...

New Bill Would Eliminate ATF’s Ability to Ban Ammo Through Reclassification

Would prevent future bans similar to one attempted under Obama administration BY: Stephen GutowskiFollow @@StephenGutowski Representative Rob Bishop (R., Utah) introduced a bill last Wednesday that would prohibit the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) from unilaterally reclassifying ammunition. The Lawful Purpose and Self-Defense Act would remove the ATF’s discretion in classifying certain ammunition as “armor piercing.” Instead of relying on the ATF or attorney general’s judgment on which “armor piercing” rounds should be given a “sporting purpose” exception, the bill would rely on the manufacturer’s design and intent. Rep. Bishop said his intention is to prevent...

NY Dem Pushes Bill Labeling Traditional Guns as ‘Child Operated Firearms’

by AWR Hawkins New York State Senator José M. Serrano (D-29) is pushing legislation that will require retailers to label a traditional gun which lacks a disabling device as a “child operated firearm.” The legislation–Senate Bill S3444–then bans the sale of any “child operated firearm.”  According to the official New York State Senate website, S3444 “Proscribes persons, firms or corporations engaged in retail business of selling firearms from selling, delivering or transferring child operated firearms.” The summary of S3444 says: Prohibits persons, firms or corporations engaged in the retail business of selling firearms from selling, delivering or transferring child operated...

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.”...
