Pink guns would be illegal in Nassau County, NY

All the good reasons for gun control?

We often hear people explain why "common sense gun laws" will be so great for society. Unfortunately, they have been misled by people who are either ignorant, or liars.

Temple homeowner chases burglar away with shotgun

<a href="http://www.nashuatelegraph.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20091010/NEWS0... Nashua Telegraph reports</a> with the above headline that there was another one of the millions of Defensive Gun Uses (DGUs).

Guest Editorial: Carrying a pistol at a rally?

<img src="/sites/default/files/dbushong1.png" align="right" height="120">There has been a lot of talk lately about the guy who was carrying a pistol in Portsmouth near a presidential appearance. Comments from the press often include terms such as "concealed permit", "automatic weapon", and even "racist" and "second amendment." Code words like that are injected for many reasons, but usually to sell papers, or simply out of ignorance.
