Oklahoma House: The Second Amendment Is Your Carry Permit

by AWR Hawkins The Oklahoma House passed legislation Wednesday to abolish the need to get a state-issued permit before carrying a concealed handgun for self-defense. The legislation, Senate Bill 1212, would allow Oklahoma residents ages 21 and up to carry without a permit so long as they were legal gun owners with no felony record. News 9 reports that State Rep. Meloyde Blancett (D-Tulsa) opposed the bill and claimed law enforcement opposes it too. State Rep. Jeff Coody (R-Lawton) countered Blancett, saying, “The Oklahoma State Bureau of investigation gets a great deal of money from the permitting process. So they simply...

Venezuela Banned Guns. Now Their Murder Rate Is Skyrocketing.

By Hank Berrien Want an example of how dangerous gun prohibition for citizens can be ? Try Venezuela, where since April 2017 at least 163 pro-democracy protesters have been murdered by the Maduro dictatorship. In 2012, the Venezuelan National Assembly, which was dominated by communists, passed the “Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law.” The bill was clear that it aimed to “disarm all citizens.” All gun sales were banned except to government entities. If a citizen was caught selling a gun or carrying one, they could get 20 years in prison. The year preceding Maduro’s disarmament initiative, Caracas recorded...

Facebook Blocks Prominent Gun Rights Organization

 by Brock Simmons Our *good friends* at Facebook have apparently blocked Oregon Firearms Federation founder and director Kevin Starrett from being able to post a few days ago. “I have no idea why I was blocked and FB does not respond to questions about it.

But if any random individual can complain and silence you, Facebook is a forum we will be moving away from” Starrett tells The Gateway Pundit. OFF made a post on their webpage, and were able to send out an email blast...

Unpublished CDC Study Confirms over 2 Million Annual Defensive Gun Uses

by AWR Hawkins An unpublished Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study confirms Florida State University criminologist Gary Kleck’s findings of more than two million defensive handgun uses (DGUs) per year. Since the early 1990s, Kleck has maintained that there is a minimum of 760,000 DGUs annually. That is his low estimate; Kleck and research partner Marc Gertz have contended the actual number is closer to 2.5 million. Kleck reaffirmed his numbers on February 17, 2015, explaining that while plenty of naysayers have criticized his findings, none have been able to offer empirical evidence to counter them. Now, a CDC study...
