Ohio Lawmakers Override Gov. Kasich’s Veto, Secure Protection for Gun Owners

by AWR Hawkins Ohio lawmakers voted Thursday to override Gov. John Kasich’s (R) veto and secure a law to protect gun owners in the state. On December 20, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Kasich vetoed protections for gun owners.  The bill he vetoed, HB 228, put the onus on the state in cases involving a claim of a gun being used in self-defense. HB 228 required the state to prove that self-defense was not a justifiable claim under certain circumstances rather requiring the gun owner to prove that it was. The goal of the bill was to  preserve the...

Texas Republican Plans Push to Eliminate Concealed Carry Permit Requirement

by AWR Hawkins Texas Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R) plans a push in the coming legislative session to eliminate the state’s concealed carry permit requirement. The Victoria Advocate reports this will be Stickland’s third attempt to ditch the requirement. The language of Stickland’s bill sets for Constitutional Carry of firearms. It means any person 21-years old or older “who is not prohibited from possessing a firearm” can carry a handgun concealed or openly without going through the process of securing a permit from the state government. Jason Hoover, owner of Hoover’s Outpost, points out that Stickland’s bill simply brings concealed and open...

Debbie Wasserman Schultz: We Stand Against Arming Teachers for Self-Defense

by AWR Hawkins Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) responded to President Trump’s renewed his calls for armed teachers by stating that “teachers, parents, and students are united against arming our educators.” On December 19, Breitbart News reported that Trump doubled down on arming teachers, describing such educators as a critical part of “hardening” schools.

Report Says Massachusetts Gun Control Laws Have Failed

by Dave Workman A “special report” from the Massachusetts Gun Owners’ Action League (GOAL) says the state’s restrictive gun control laws have not been the success that some claim, and during the past 20 years, the state’s murder rate actually increased. “Where’s the success,” GOAL asks in a news release asserting that since the passage of Chapter 180, which is the gun control law adopted in 1998, “there has been no decrease in firearm-related accidental deaths. Perhaps that is because statistically there never was a problem.” Jim Wallace is executive director of the Massachusetts GOAL, which is criticizing the state’s restrictive...

Over One Million Gun Owners Refuse to Obey Ban, No One Turning in Magazines

By Matt Agorist New Jersey — Unless you’ve been under a rock lately, then you’ve likely seen the unprecedented push by all levels of government to separate law abiding Americans from their guns. No, this is not some conspiracy theory. The president himself ushered in a new level of gun control doing what his liberal predecessor even refused to do by banning bump stocks. However, as states across the country seek to limit the ability of innocent people to defend themselves, people are disobeying. In May, Gov. Phil Murphy signed a law that reduced the maximum capacity of ammunition...

Chicago Tribune: Gun Control Not the Solution for American Firearm Deaths

by AWR Hawkins Chicago Tribune editorial board member Steve Chapman observes that gun control is not the solution to American firearm deaths because no amount of gun control will stop suicide, which is the driving force behind such deaths. Chapman’s appraisal comes amid Everytown for Gun Safety’s best efforts to hype Centers for Disease Control and Prevention firearm death numbers for 2017. CDC reported 39,773 firearm related deaths, which gun control groups then presented as “gun violence” deaths or, in the case of CNN, reported that “U.S. gun deaths reach highest level in nearly 40 years.” But as CNN...

Exiled Venezuelan Dissident: ‘Guns Would Have Served As A Vital Pillar To Remaining A Free People’

By James Barrett On Saturday, Fox News published a lengthy piece by reporter Hollie McKay that offers a compelling case for gun rights that includes the insights of an exiled Venezuelan dissident forced to watch as his fellow citizens are crushed by the increasingly tyrannical and brutal socialist government . In 2013, the “Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law,” a gun control bill passed a year earlier by Hugo Chavez’s socialist regime, systematically wiped out gun ownership rights in Venezuela. Five years later, the people have no recourse against an out of control government. Javier Vanegas, a 28-year-old...

As the government and infrastructure collapse, desperate citizens fear for their safety — but they’re left defenseless after having their guns seized by corrupt officials. No, it’s not the plot to a postapocalyptic survival novel. It’s happening right now in Venezuela, and victims of the South American country’s crippling socialism are now sounding an alarm about the right to keep and bear arms. “Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to...
