Open Carry in Arizona

Someone stopped by looking for information on “Open Carry in Arizona”.   I often get people curious about this from other States as well.  So I am posting a list of States that currently allow “Open Carry”.

Currently most states do allow “Open Carry” in some form. Arizona does allow Open Carry without a permit.  Some states require a permit to Open Carry, while others do not.  Some States allow the open carry of Long Guns whereas many do not.  And best of all, some States     Continue reading

Governor Brown Signs 6 New Gun Control Bills

Governor Moonbeam Removed Some More of Our Freedoms

Governor BrownOn this 4th of July weekend and Holiday, we here in the Socialist State we refer to as the People’s Republik of Kalifornistan, we get to also celebrate the loss of some more of our Freedom; Freedom that we thought was guaranteed by our Constitution and the Second Amendment. But when the people continue to vote Democrat they elect a Legislature that is 2 to 1 Democrat to Republican. As a result the Liberal Gun Grabbers are undeterred. The Republicans can do nothing and they watch the Dems, our Moral Superiors, pass whatever gun control law they want, no matter how much it infringes on our Second Amendment Right. And with an Uber Liberal Democrat Governor, Jerry Brown, they get signed into law at about the same ratio.

This is now Illegal

This is now Illegal

Signed Bills

This weekend we celebrate the loss of our AR-15s, AR-10s, AKs and so on.  On Friday before the 4th of July weekend, Governor Moon Beam signed Continue reading

The U. S. A. is Number ONE – in Gun Ownership

Proof Positive for the Liberal Left Antis that we need to Ban Guns.

Every time there is a horrific mass gun killing like we had in Orlando, the rabid left wing of our countries political governance, starts immediately crying for more gun control. They pull out their arsenal of agenda topics, their most favorite rant, Gun Control. House Sit-in (3)This time the Liberals in the House of Representatives weighed in, apparently thinking they were back in the ’60s, as they staged a meaningless and embarrassing “sit in” on the floor of the House.  They point to our sick, twisted obsession with personal gun possession in this country, our fanatical gun culture that is embarrassing to them when compared to their socialist European friends with highly superior gun control laws. We must be the most murdering country in the world, especially after Orlando.

So if we look at the statistics you would expect to find us at the top of the list. Any yes, according to statistics for 2014, the United States tops the list in Glory. We are indeed ranked number 1 in the world with gun ownership at 90 guns per 100 people or .9 per person.  Foam FingerIf you had a random gathering of 1000 people, and you got an honest tally of how may guns they own among them, according to the statistics you would find 900 guns in the crowd. Amazing. The next country does not even come close with almost half as many guns at 58.2 guns per 100 people and that would be Serbia. Even Switzerland, where gun ownership almost required, is ranked fourth behind us with only 45.7 guns per 100 people.

There you have it. Something of which Rick Wyatt, Paige Wyatt and the entire crew at Gunsmoke Guns would be proud.  It is proof positive that the United States with their fanatical obsession with guns tops the list by far and we have far too many guns. This is surely evidence to the Progressive Left that they surely do live in the murder capital of the world with 90 guns per 100 residents. We must be the most murderous country in the world with those numbers.

So using Liberal gun thinking, all we have to do to prove the left wing Progressive case for banning guns is look at the Per Capita Intentional Homicide statistics for the murder rate in the world. Surely we must top that list as well. We should be number 1 again. Right?  Wrong.  We are      Continue reading

Gun Control Laws Should Be Repealed

Gun & Constitution 2If you take a look at the more than 13,550 gun laws we have in the United States including federal, state and local laws, I defy you to find even one that has saved a life, prevented a crime, prevented a mass murder or political assassination. It can’t be done. Gun Control laws do not save lives or make people safe. To the contrary, they make people less safe by denying them the ability to defend themselves from predation.  So now they want what they like to call “Common Sense Gun Laws”.  There is no such thing.  They all make citizens less safe.

Most gun laws on the books today are there as a result of an emotional, irrational over reaction to some tragedy or sudden perceived threat.  None of the laws are based on Constitutional Law, or are consistent with overall dominant public opinion. Each and every gun control law is Unconstitutional by     Continue reading

Should We Just Give Up Our Rights? Surrender Our Guns?

Today, a week after the horrific slaughter in Orlando, the battle lines have clearly been drawn. Problem is, the Liberal Democrats seem to be better at staying focused on their agenda and hype. They seem to keep the drum beat for Gun Control banging in every direction you look.

The Liberals want to take the guns out of our hands and the Republicans believe we need to fight the war to defeat terrorism – “Militant Islamic Terrorism”.

Obama at PodiumThe idea of people walking around with concealed carry weapons is abhorrent to our President.  Obama actually said “the notion that the answer to this tragedy would be to make sure that more people in a nightclub are similarly armed to take out the killer defies common sense.”, – his words.  More correctly, his statement defies common sense.  People with their own weapons in the club could have     Continue reading

It’s Time To Eliminate The Gun Control Laws: Yes, All Of Them

By Michael Z. Williamson

Behavioral laws require three components to be effective.  They must accurately describe an action that causes harm to others. They must propose a penalty that disincentivizes the activity. They must be enforceable.

Williamson-books

Michael Williamson at Book Signing

Let’s consider the laws against murder. The harm done is obvious. The penalties range up to death. They can be enforced by an examination of the evidence during trial, and punishment.

How about “disturbing the peace?” If you plug in a Gibson ES35 guitar and a stack of Marshal and Hi-Watt amps at 2 a.m. and start playing Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man,” there’s a good chance your neighbors will complain.  If they do, we have a clear report of harm done (minor harm, but relevant), and can again have an examination, trial and punishment, probably a fine.

Of course, we could prevent some of those incidences by licensing guitars, having waiting periods on amplifiers, and requiring proof of need for any amp over 20 watts.

Wait, how would that work exactly?      Continue reading

Peruta v. San Diego Loses En Banc

Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Shoots Down Suit to Outlaw California Concealed Carry Law

The Gun Grabbing Libs Had to Lie, Cheat and Steal to Get This One

“There is no truth in the law. Everybody lies. Stop searching for it.” — Al Pacino, “Misconduct”

I was watching Fox News last night when they Constitution & Gavelsuddenly broke from the story they had going, to discuss the decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that had just been handed down.  They broke to get opinions from two panelists they had set up in front of a camera.  In keeping with the Fox motto of “Fair and Balanced” they had one who is pro guns and a gun grabber type.  After explaining the decision had finally been released after about a year and describing how the Court held that the ‘Good Cause’ requirement in California’s Law was ruled to be Constitutional, they broke to get opinions from their two panelists.

I have to admit that I probably didn’t hear a word that either one of them said. My mind was fixated on how under handed, deceitful and dishonest the cheating liberals are.  And this is no exception.  We gun carriers had finally won one last year when the first ruling had opined that the California Law that requires one to have a “good cause” was unconstitutional.  It made sense to us. After all, what part of “shall not be infringed” do they not understand. Requiring someone to show     Continue reading

Gun Free Zones Kill, Again – This Time 4 Marines in Chattanooga

This keeps happening and yet it is predictable, and to some degree preventable. Our lawmakers and politicians continue to believe that our society needs what they call “gun free zones”, ostensibly to keep guns out of the building, arena, or gathering place. But gun free zones are becoming known as “killing zones”.

A few weeks ago, we reported about a senseless shooting in Charleston, S.C. This time the location is in Chattanooga, TN where a Muslim man shot through the windows of a military recruiting station located in a strip mall. Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a naturalized American citizen, born in Kuwait, with citizenship in Jordan, woke up in the morning and decided that this form of terrorism, shooting up two military centers with an AK-47, would be appropriate for his unknown cause. He paid for it with his life.

According to Sgt. 1st Class Robert Dodge,     Continue reading

The Most Logical Approach to Gun Ownership

I guess this has been around for some time now, perhaps about 10 or 12 years now but it still makes sense.  I received it as an email the other day and it says that Fred Maslack ‘recently’ proposed this as a bill but for as much as I can tell, he is not even still in the legislature anymore.  It has probably surfaced as a result of the recent new push for more gun control.  But it is still a great idea that came from someone in New England with a realistic head on his shoulders.

Flag GunVermont State Rep. Fred Maslack has read the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as well as Vermont’s own Constitution very carefully, and his strict interpretation of these documents is popping some eyeballs in New England and elsewhere.

Maslack recently proposed a bill to register “non-gun-owners” and require them to pay a $500 fee to the state.  Thus Vermont would become the first state to require a permit for the luxury of going about unarmed and assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun.  Maslack read the “militia” phrase of the Second Amendment as not only the right of the individual citizen to bear arms, but as ‘a clear mandate to do so’.  He believes that universal gun ownership was advocated by the Framers of the Constitution as an antidote to a “monopoly of force” by the government as well as criminals.  Vermont’s constitution states explicitly that “the people have a right to bear arms for the defense of themselves and the State” and those persons who are “conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms” shall be required to “pay such equivalent.”  Clearly, says Maslack, Vermonters have a constitutional obligation to arm themselves, so that they are capable of responding to “any situation that may arise.” Continue reading
