On January 31, 2019, Governor Kristi Noem signed her first bill into law. The bill was SB47, South Dakota Constitutional Carry. That makes South Dakota the 14th state to pass Constitutional carry legislation—only 36 more to go, and Oklahoma looks to be vying to be the 15th state…
On Friday, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms and ammunition, joined several other gun rights groups in announcing that it opposes the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019 introduced in the U.S. Senate last week. The legislation introduced by Sen.

The New York Times’ Andrew Ross Sorkin figured it out. Criminal misuse of firearms is the fault of none other than credit card companies.

If you are going to practice open carry, as a Second Amendment advocate some preparation is in order. Think about the possibility of someone snatching a pistol. Training on avoiding, preventing, and actively stopping disarms is advisable, as this story, turned near tragedy, illustrates.
Bumpstocks have been on the hit list for some time now. Not because they are intrinsically dangerous in the hands of hundreds of thousands of gun owners, but because one miscreant, a murderer, decided to use one in a horrific crime. Politicians and anti gunners, as usual, have decided to blame the implement and not the criminal.

The ruling becomes official when it is placed on the Federal Register, likely this Friday, December 21, 2018. At that time, it will kick off a 90-day clock to either destroy or surrender your scapegoat bumpstock.
