ATF May Care More About The NRA Than You And Me

Last week the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) announced that it was indefinitely delaying a proposal to ban armor piercing bullets.  They cited an outpouring of public opposition to the proposal.  In my latest column, I argue that it’s not the public that ATF is worried about: …the comments were likely not a […]

The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms wants to ban a certain kind of bullet that has been legal since 1986. The steel-tipped 5.56 mm rounds at that time were deemed to have a “sporting purpose,” according to ATF because until recently they could only be fired from rifles. But the agency says a new […]

Since Congress has failed to act on gun control, states are taking up the cause. After a victory in November on a Washington State ballot measure that will require broader background checks on gun buyers, groups that promote gun regulations have turned away from Washington and the political races that have been largely futile. Instead, […]

Two years after the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012, public support for gun control is at a record low, according to the Pew Research Center. Today, 52 percent of Americans believe it is more important to protect the right to own guns, while 46 percent responded that it is more important […]

Gun rights activists are promising a crowd of 5,000 or more armed activists to gather at the Washington state capital’s lawn to protest stricter laws about gun ownership laws that will go into effect after voters approved ballot initiative i594.

A Colorado Republican candidate for county commissioner believes, like many other insane and demented ammosexuals, that the mass shooting at Sandy Hook was a hoax invented by Democrats to push gun control because Obummer’s comin’ fer our guns! Sandy Hook “truthers” are nothing short of insane. One, for example, stole and desecrated two signs from […]

Several weeks ago, we covered one of several bizarre new videos released by the National Rifle Association in which a “commentator” pitches one or more ridiculous ideas for how to expand gun rights in the United States. In that video, a hipster commentator, Billy Johnson, made a case for government subsidies for guns, including free […]

James Brady, who was shot during an attempt on the life of Ronald Reagan, has died at age 73. “Jim touched the lives of so many and has been a wonderful husband, father, friend and role model,” his family said in a statement. “We are enormously proud of Jim’s remarkable accomplishments – before he was […]

I am as liberal as they come on almost all issues. Also, I do not own a gun. I don’t like guns. I believe in common sense gun safety laws. That being said, I am an outlier among most liberals. I don’t think we should spend nearly the amount of effort we do on gun […]
