    Open Carry on Public Federal Lands

    In the past weeks the Bundy Ranch Standoff has brought to the forefront the amount of land that the Feds actually own in the west: Specifically 84.5% of Nevada and 1/3 of the entire United States overall. Much of these lands are under the "authority" of the Department of the Interior, and...

    The Snowden and Putin Show

    Opinion: Was Snowden inquiring sincerely in good faith, or was this truly political propaganda? Consequently, Snowden and his advisers deem the call-in question was a mistake. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/04/20/snowden-s-camp-staged-putin-q-a-was-a-screw-up.html

    Sheriff Lewis and Delegate Smigiel Star in Educational OC Video

    You can view the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKtkefEcDQY The reason for the theatrics (pun intended :lol:)? To advance Maryland to a shall issue state. Obviously, this is being done at the expense of long-gun OC. Given long-gun OC is off limits on this forum we won't discuss...

    SCOTUS Needs to Reaffirm RKBA Extends Outside of Home

    I feel we're at a stalemate. To date there are 5 Constitutional Carry states, 37 Shall Issue, and 8 May Issue States. I contend we will not see any reduction of the "8 May Issue" counts until there is a ruling from SCOTUS. The one potential exception I foresee is the recent ruling of the US 9th...

    More Evidence to Support Driving Armed

    Sad story. This is one reason I support HR 2959: National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2013; that is when traveling the interstates carrying for self-defense is a need.

    IL Law Charges Felony for Flicking a Cigarette Butt = RKBA Revoked

    Already in effect as of January 1, 2014 anyone littering a cigarette butt may be charged with a misdemeanor for the first two offenses, and a felony charge for the third offense. I can't help but think, especially with Quinn's vow to decrease prison populations that this is a subtle, back-door...

    Save that "first round / born on" Casing?

    Never thought twice about it until I was at the Nation's Gun Show this weekend in the Ole Dominion, and I saw a sticker on some of the cases "No shell casing included per MD, NY Law" Apparently some states require the first shell casing fired, in a factory-sealed envelope. I suppose it's of...
