These 10 Incidents Highlight Importance of Second Amendment for Women

Since 1987, the United States has recognized March as Women’s History Month to celebrate the vital role of women in American history. Unfortunately, far too often we find that the armed women of history are overlooked or completely forgotten, and the vital role of the Second Amendment in the lives of American women is ignored.

Women long have availed themselves of the right to keep and bear arms in defense of life, liberty, and property—from Harriet Tubman, the famed “conductor” of the underground railroad who was known to carry loaded pistols, to Mary “Stagecoach Mary” Fields, the first black woman to be a mail carrier, who notoriously kept a .38 revolver in her apron to fend off bandits and wild animals alike.
 

Jackboots policing: No-knock raids rip a hole in the Fourth Amendment

Shadowy figures appear at the doorway, screaming orders, threatening violence.

Chaos reigns.

You stand frozen, your hands gripping whatever means of self-defense you could find.

Just that simple act—of standing frozen in fear and self-defense—is enough to spell your doom.

The assailants open fire, sending a hail of bullets in your direction.

You die without ever raising a weapon or firing a gun in self-defense.

In your final moments, you get a good look at your assassins: it’s the police.

Brace yourself, because this hair-raising, heart-pounding, jarring account of a no-knock, no-announce SWAT team raid is what passes for court-sanctioned policing in America today, and it could happen to any one of us.

As shoppers came and went through the sliding glass doors at the sprawling Adventure Outdoors gun store Wednesday, smiling volunteers asked them if they were registered to vote.

"The right to self-defense is in the far-left's crosshairs," flyers being passed out declared.

Chatting with gun enthusiasts was businesswoman and former U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Georgia. The Republican was there with her voter registration group Greater Georgia, which she founded last year after her loss to Democrat Raphael Warnock.
 

VA: Shooting Straight with Winsome Sears

When I opened my mailbox to find a campaign flyer showing Winsome Earle-Sears in business clothes holding an AR-15, she had my full attention. She went on to win the election to become the first black woman to serve as lieutenant governor of Virginia. Now she had the nation’s attention.

Months later, as I walked up to the historic three-story, brick-and-terra-cotta building where I was to meet Sears in Richmond, Va., on a cold, sunny President’s Day, I thought about how the building had been renamed in 2005 after Oliver Hill, a civil-rights attorney who worked to end segregation and who was the first black American to win a seat on the Richmond City Council in 1949.

Fried and three other plaintiffs filed the lawsuit in federal court in Tallahassee, alleging that the restrictions violate Second Amendment rights and should be blocked.
 

Glock Handguns: An American Mainstay

Today Glock pistols serve alongside thousands of law enforcement officers nationwide, as well as being the primary self-defense gun for tens of thousands of law-abiding citizens. They’re also serving on front lines manned by militaries across the globe and win competitions, but the company didn’t start as a firearm manufacturer.

Gaston Glock, an Austrian engineer, founded Glock Ges.m.b.H in 1963. The company specialized in the production of injection molded parts at the time. Curtain rods are the most-cited product from the early days, but it also created knives, machine gun belt links and even grenade casings for Austria’s military.

Reps. Chris L. Jacobs and Elise M. Stefanik are working together on a bill that would allow people to keep their guns in the event of a bankruptcy.

The Protecting Gun Owners in Bankruptcy Act, introduced by Rep. Jacobs, R-Orchard Park, on Monday, would allow anyone undergoing bankruptcy proceedings to keep up to $3,000 worth of firearms out of their bankruptcy estate.

By exempting those firearms from the estate, they cannot be sold by the trustee appointed by the court to sell the bankrupt person’s possessions in order to clear debts.

This letter is to address some of the questions about licensed concealed carry raised at the April 13, 2022, meeting of the Committee on Safety, Housing, Education & Homelessness. This letter is also being made available to the public.

What are crime rates for persons with licensed carry permits?
A concealed handgun permit (CHP) is issued only to persons 21 and over. Roughly speaking, among the Colorado population 21 and over, an adult with a concealed handgun permit is about 39 times less likely to be arrested than an adult without a CHP. The data are as follows.

As Crime Grows, Biden’s Radical War On Self-Defense Is Alienating Voters

President Joe Biden’s unpopular gun control moves are doing little to appease his gun control donor class. Worse, those same moves are distancing him from voters that clearly see crime as a central issue and gun ownership as a right to be protected.

Among the unpopular policy positions dragging down his presidency is his myopic focus on gun control instead of crime control. The Biden White House has pursued the most far-reaching and radical gun control agenda of any president, previously naming a gun control lobbyist to run the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) whose nomination was defeated when not even all Senate Democrats could support the nominee.

“When you have a gun in the house, which so many people have for self-defense ... you are putting yourself at three times greater risk of someone in your home dying by an accidental shooting,” Wachs said. As she reveals in her podcast, for the young men in Montana and metro Atlanta who died by suicide or homicide, access to guns in times of crisis resulted in quick actions with irreversible impacts.

Guns are part of American culture and most of the families featured in the podcast did not blame guns for the deaths of their children.
 

Are Gun Grabbers or Gun Owners Empathic and Distrustful?

Both sides of the gun debate feel that their position is correct. Both sides agree that horrible people do horrible things. Both sides want to stop that. That small point of agreement is where progress in the debate usually ends. I think both sides are empathic and distrustful but they are paying attention to very different things. A way to get farther in the debate is to ask a deeper question.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters don’t think stricter gun control laws would help prevent shootings like the one Tuesday that left 29 people injured in Brooklyn. Thirty-eight percent (38%) think stricter gun control laws would help prevent mass shootings, while another 11% are not sure. These findings are virtually identical to a March 2021 survey, when President Joe Biden called for new gun control measures in the aftermath of two mass shootings. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Overall, 43% of voters believe the United States needs stricter gun control laws, while 50% disagree.

Following a series of mass shootings in South Carolina and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania last weekend, gun control is back in the national spotlight. The White House is hoping to curb gun violence as President Biden announced an executive measure last week targeting so-called ghost guns, homemade weapons that are difficult to track. Gun control advocates like Christian Heyne, from the Brady Campaign, are praising the move.

“We have seen a significant increase of these weapons in major cities across the country,” said Heyne.

The city of Seattle passed a similar law that year, which has also been challenged.

Thursday’s ruling was a victory for gun rights organizations, such as the National Rifle Association and the Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation, both of which participated in the legal challenge.

In a statement, Alan Gottlieb, founder and vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation, called the ruling “a great victory for the principle of state preemption.”

“This should send a signal to other municipal governments — especially the City of Seattle against which we have a nearly identical pending lawsuit — that they cannot enact their own gun restrictions in violation of state law or the state constitution,” Gottlieb added.

Yes, liberals do want weapons to be registered, waiting periods, trigger locks, magazine limits, buybacks and some gun bans, certainly assault weapons, that were designed for the military to kill as many, as fast, as could be done. ...

Liberals do not want the police to be defunded nor would they eliminate the right to self defense. Those are GOP talking points. What they do want is to educate the police and the people on the use of deadly force and the elimination of concealed carry.
 

CA: To Fight Gun Violence, Prepare for When – Not If

“I’ve never done an active shooter drill here,” said Sarah Aziz, a DVC student studying civil engineering. “It’s kind of scary that we might be unprepared.”

Granted, it would be difficult to practice safety drills on a large campus where thousands of students are coming and going with different schedules. But it’s something the administration could, and perhaps should, consider trying.

Although California has the most gun laws in the nation – 107 to be precise, according to the State Firearm Laws project at Boston University – shootings here still happen with frightening regularity.

Regarding voters who consider themselves to be “extremely conservative,” Ivey garners 54% support. Likely GOP primary voters who are most concerned with issues surrounding illegal immigration and the Second Amendment, she receives more than 60% support. Ivey’s reelection campaign has recently launched ads promoting the governor’s position on both issues.

The results also show Ivey maintaining her status as Alabama’s most popular political figure, as 80% hold a favorable impression of the incumbent governor, with 77% of respondents approving of her job performance. The percentage is consistent as well among very conservative voters, with Ivey’s job approval among that bloc of the Republican base standing at 78%.
 

Does Media Really Get Away with Alleged Bias, Gun Law Violations?

A broadcast journalist using a hidden camera enters a gun show, purchases two “80-percent” gun kits, then goes to the state attorney general’s office where two agents help complete and assemble the guns before firing them on a range—allegedly violating state and federal gun laws in the process—while the camera records it all.

During a Sunday morning interview with a network news anchor, a nationally-known gun rights leader is challenged to discuss a 30-round magazine held by the anchor, on a show broadcast from the nation’s capital, where such magazines are known to be illegal.
 

Meet Michael Bloomberg, the ‘Modern Day Paul Revere of Gun Violence’

There was a sense of Back to the Future in New York City when current Democratic Mayor Eric Adams was joined by former Mayor Michael Bloomberg for an announcement. Bloomberg, of course, is the failed presidential candidate and hypocritical billionaire subsidizer of anti-Second Amendment gun control groups Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action.

Mayor Adams largely won office by campaigning on getting tough on crime and made news when he let it be known he’d carry a concealed firearm in office and forgo the mayor’s security detail. Those promises have vanished.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
