“My fidelity to the Constitution has been consistent across the board,” Caldwell said. “It’s not just about your right to self defense. Ultimately, I am running to make government obedient to the Constitution.”

While much has been made by the press and his campaign about Caldwell’s support for the Second Amendment, the Republican nominee insisted he is a staunch defender of the entire Bill of Rights, especially the First Amendment, adding that he took some heat for it during his time in the Legislature. Caldwell said he looks back on those eight years with pride, especially the way he focused on the environment.
 

Maxim Defense PDW Brace: Shortening an AR Pistol

AR-15s with pistol braces have become immensely popular in recent years, thanks to the compact package offered by these designs. There are all kinds of brace types, from blades to loops to all manner of other styles, but what most of them have in common is that they attach to the fixed buffer tube at the back of an AR receiver and, as such, are fixed in place. This means that, while you may enjoy the benefits of a short barrel on your AR-15, your pistol is still going to have a longer overall length because of the long buffer tube at the rear end of your gun.

Eyes and ears on. A steady squeeze of the trigger. A muffled explosion marked by muzzle flash sends a round into the target four yards away. Another and another, until the poster is pockmarked with holes.

Mari Hiltz turns around with a wide smile, pleased with the results.

Hiltz, 62, of Melbourne, is a new member of A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League, a national club by and for women that advocates firearms education and competition.

Proponents for I-1639 say it is an initiative for ‘Safe Schools and Communities’ gun control. However all three major law enforcement organizations in the State of Washington are asking you to vote NO. As a recently retired officer with 30 years of experience I can tell that no one is more interested in ‘Safe Schools and Communities’ than law enforcement, but the Washington State Sheriffs Association WSSA, the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs WACOPS and the Washington State Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors Association WSLEFIA all agree IT WILL DO NOTHING TO STOP A SINGLE CRIME.

With former Army Captain Jair Bolsonaro on the cusp of winning Brazil’s presidency, his allies in Congress plan to deliver on his campaign promise to ease the country’s restrictive gun laws as early as this year.

Gun ownership is one of the flagship campaign pledges of the former paratrooper, who regularly greets his fans by cocking his hands in a gun-shaped salute. Way ahead of his rival Fernando Haddad in opinion polls, Bolsonaro is on course to be elected Brazil’s next president on Oct. 28.

One of the main reasons I became involved and remain involved in politics is the people. I try to be the voice of the people that I represent. I am a strong supporter of the Constitution and our Bill of Rights. This is a very important mid-term election and our First and Second Amendments are under attack.
 

The Gun Control Debate: A Brief History

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

For the nearly two hundred years after its approval as an amendment to the United States Constitution, few sentences in the Bill of Rights caused less controversy. Few courts and fewer legal scholars paid any attention to the Second Amendment to the Constitution. How that changed is a fascinating and uniquely American story that brings together the Black Panthers, Ronald Reagan, a civil war within the NRA, and gun regulations in Washington D.C.

Throne and Gordon both agreed on a number of issues: carbon sequestration and finding ways to maintain coal and natural gas as a key industry in the state even as the market shifts; Second Amendment issues, though Gordon was non-specific on his stance of a gun ban on the University of Wyoming campus (“I’m staunchly Second Amendment. That’s all I have to say,” he said.); and revising sentencing guidelines and being a better partner to the tribes.

John Kennedy proposed legislation prior the recess that would prohibit the federal government from granting contracts to banks that discriminate against lawful businesses and based only on social policy considerations.

The Colorado Court of Appeals, in a unanimous opinion issued Thursday, upheld the state’s ban on large-capacity ammunition magazines of 15 rounds or more.

The lawsuit dates back to the contentious 2013 legislative session in which Democrats, who controlled both the House and Senate, passed a trio of gun-control laws, including one that banned ownership of an ammunition magazine with 15 rounds or more.

But Sharpe said the First Amendment is the most important and the Second Amendment is “supposed to protect the first.”

“I support the Second Amendment completely,” he said.

Sharpe said the Safe Act “must go” before New York state becomes “an eventual police state.”

“I will get the Safe Act repealed by 2020,” he said. “People that are pro-Safe Act aren’t angry, they’re ignorant. It made millions of New York people criminals overnight.”
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition, that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story, who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim. If men are to wait for liberty till they become wise and good in slavery, they may indeed wait forever. — LORD THOMAS MACAULAY
