Carrie Lightfoot: Breaking the Bondage of Fear

by Carrie Lightfoot Think about this: the average lifespan of an American woman is 81 years old. Conservatively, if a young woman begins to be concerned about her safety at the age of 18, that would mean that she could live 63 years of her life bound to the ever-present fear of being assaulted, kidnapped, carjacked, or murdered.  The average female is no match for a larger, stronger attacker. Multiply this disparity of size and strength exponentially when she is facing a stoned attacker or, heaven forbid, multiple attackers. Factor in age or physical impairments, and it becomes painfully...

New Jersey’s Democrat Gov. Pushing $550 Fee to Own and Carry a Gun

by AWR Hawkins New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) is pushing $550 in fees for law-abiding citizens who want to own and carry a gun for self-defense. The New York Times reports that Murphy’s desired increase in fees is “20 times as much” as fees are today. Currently, “a firearm identification card costs $5, while a permit to own a firearm is $2. A permit to carry a gun costs $20.” Murphy’s proposals would raise the cost to a point where the firearm identification card would be “$100, an owner’s permit would be $50 and a carry permit $400.” Having...

Fed Judge: California’s ‘High-Capacity’ Magazine Ban Unconstitutional

by AWR Hawkins The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California ruled Friday that California’s ban on ammunition magazines holding more than ten rounds violates the Second Amendment. On June 29, 2017, Breitbart News reported that U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez blocked the implementation of California’s “high-capacity” magazine ban two days before it was to go into effect. He noted that the ban could not survive the test of District of Columbia v. Heller (2008), noting: “When the simple test of Heller is applied … the statute is adjudged an unconstitutional abridgment.” On July 17, 2018, a three-judge panel...

Lindsey Graham on Gun Confiscation Laws: ‘Every Right Has Limits’

by AWR Hawkins During Tuesday’s hearing on confiscatory red flag laws, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said, “every right has limits.” Graham supports red flag laws, and in early March, he told CNN the confiscatory laws represent a place Republicans and Democrats can “come together” on gun control. Ironically, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was able to use the hearing as a venue in which to promote her “Extreme Risk Protection Order of 2019.” Breitbart News reported that Feinstein’s bill seeks to encourage more states to adopt Extreme Risk Protection Orders, i.e., red flag laws, which allow for...

Italy Eyes Stand Your Ground-Style Law for Lethal Firearm Use

AWR Hawkins Italian leaders are eyeing a Stand Your Ground-style law that would offer protections for Italians who perceive a threat and kill someone in their home. CBS News reports that Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini’s party is seeking passage of a “Legitimate Defense” bill.

Gun Owners of America Rips Apart Lindsay Graham’s New Gun Control Scheme

By Jose Nino Michael Hammond, the legislative counsel for Gun Owners of America, took Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a recent article for the Daily Caller. Hammond declared that Graham “arrived with the year’s nuttiest idea: To make the GOP the party of gun confiscation and, in the process, jettison the Second Amendment movement from the Republican coalition.” In this case, Hammond is referring to Graham’s plan to move red flag gun confiscation in the U.S. Senate. According to Hammond, “To this end, Graham has scheduled a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on March 26 to consider legislation to confiscate...
