Chicago's Mayor wants to keep his gun ban

The ironic part of this is he's complaining that he needs the gun ban to keep people safe - then cites recent examples of gun violence in Chicago, all of which happened while the ban was in place.

Gun bans don't work. Letting people defend themselves does. And the framers of the Constitution understood that.

More discussion on the Court decision

If you like well-written political newsletters, there's none better than the Wall Street Journal's OpinionJournal.

A nice bit of sarcasm in today's edition on the Heller Vs. DC.

Landmark Ruling fires challenge to gun laws

Supreme Court's gun ruling puts S.F. laws in peril

Ruling may effect other gun bans

Like Chicago, where handguns are also illegal.

Americans have the RIGHT to guns

Those of us who know how to read (e.g. the Constitution), aren't surprised by this at all.
The Supreme Court ruled that the DC gun ban is illegal, since Americans have the right to arms according to the constitution.

Goes to show who you elect is important!

Anti-gun logic (or lack thereof)

This editorial talks about how turning Wisconsin into the "Wild West" by allowing concealed carry is a bad idea.

You've got to be kidding. 48 states allow concealed carry. Was that mentioned? Of course not. Crime goes DOWN whenever it's passed. Was that mentioned? Nope. We have years of studies and real-life experience to back up the fact that CCW laws work.

Why don't anti-gunners use actual, real-world facts to back up their case? Because they don't have any facts to back up their argument. It's all emotional, twisted logic that panders to the idea that people can't handle responsibility.

Sad, but true, that this is what "journalism" has boiled down to for many.

Blood in the streets?

The FBI is reporting that violent crime is at near-historic lows. Notice they don't credit the fact that 48 states allow people to protect themselves from criminals with concealed carry laws - a fact not lost on most people familiar with the topic.

Not to mention castle doctrine and other rules that make it easier for people to defend themselves. Meanwhile, violent crime is up in England, Australia, and other nations who clamp down on gun rights...

A new projector!

The fund has grown enough to buy a new XGA projector. We'll have improved resolution, a brighter picture, and a quieter, more energy-efficient projector!

Shooting videos in high-def, does it really get any better!?

The June 14 class should be the first to experience the upgrade. Thank you to everyone who has attended our classes - your support helps our effort to spread concealed carry in Ohio!
