Citizens with AR-15s Stand Guard Outside Texas Police Departments

by AWR Hawkins On July 9, two days after the heinous ambush on Dallas police officers, citizens armed with AR-15s stood guard outside various police departments in Texas. According to the Montgomery County Police Reporter, James Evans, Roger Tarrant, and Paul Wilson went to the Patton Village Police Department with “their AR-15s in hand” and stood guard. They also stood outside the City of Splendora Police Department (SPD), where passing drivers “honked their horns in approval, while others stopped for photos, selfies, and to personally thank them for what they were doing.” In fact, the men garnered so much support in the...

NRA Ad: Young, Black, Female, and Armed; I’m Freedom’s Safest Place

by AWR Hawkins In the latest NRA ad, black millennial Antonia Okafor says she did not let name-calling–including being called “an uncle Tom”–prevent her from getting a gun for self-defense. The ad is part of the NRA Foundation’s “national campaign,” which has already featured ads with former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, Lt. Colonel Oliver North, Sheriff David Clarke, singer Charlie Daniels, and Benghazi survivor Mark Geist, among others. Okafor looks into the camera and begins: I’ve been told that black women aren’t supposed to support the Second Amendment. I’ve been told I shouldn’t want to be able to protect myself. I...

by AWR Hawkins During the time period of 1993-2014, private gun ownership skyrocketed and firearm-related homicides plummeted in the United States. Breitbart News previously reported on a 2012 Congressional Research Service study showing gun ownership jumped from 192 million privately owned guns in 1994 to 309 million in 2009. At the same time, the “firearm-related murder and non-negligent homicide” of 6.6 per 100,000 Americans in 1993 fell to 3.6 per 100,000 in 2000 and as far as 3.2 per 100,000 in 2011. Now, newly released Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) numbers show the firearm-related murder rate maintained this low rate...

New Black Panthers Plan Armed Protests Outside GOP Convention Site

by AWR Hawkins The New Black Panthers plan to conduct armed protests outside the Republican convention site if open carry is legal in the area in which the protests are held. Ohio is an open carry state, but there are bans on carrying in certain areas–police buildings, courthouses, school zones, etc.–and private businesses and property owners have the prerogative of banning guns in their buildings and on their premises, period. But the Daily Mail reports that the Panthers plan to be armed if possible. Panther’s chairman Hashim Nzinga said: If it is an open state to carry, we will exercise...

Louisville Mayor Wants Gun Laws More Like Chicago, Less Like Kentucky

by AWR Hawkins One month after saying he would not press for more gun control, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer (D) is calling for the ability to break with the pro-gun attitude of Kentucky and enact more gun controls in the City of Louisville. Fischer’s push comes at a time when Chicago perfectly illustrates the dangers of a city using gun control as a solution to gun crime. According to the Courier-Journal, Fischer wants the Kentucky legislature and Governor Matt Bevin (R) to amend or do away with the state’s firearm preemption statute so cities can pass gun controls that are more stringent… View Article

Gunpocalypse — Gun Owners to Jerry Brown: Come and Take It

by AWR Hawkins In the wake of “gunpocalypse,” Second Amendment supporters in California are vowing civil disobedience: “Come and take it.” Governor Jerry Brown signed six of the 11 new gun control bills that passed the California legislature last week, including a ban on “the sale of semiautomatic rifles equipped with bullet buttons.” Bullet buttons are simple mechanisms that allow a gun owner to switch out an empty magazine for a full one. In addition to the ban on the sale of such rifles, Brown also signed bills that will require law-abiding citizens to go through a background check before being allowed...
