This rapid growth of permits has been attributed to increases among African-Americans and women.

Former Bloomberg Lackey Comes Clean on True Anti-gun Agenda
Back when Mark Glaze was executive director of Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, and later Everytown for Gun Safety, he went to great lengths to portray his master’s anti-gun positions as moderate. Glaze used the typical gun control advocate refrain that his groups were merely seeking “commonsense” gun laws. The anti-gun campaigner used every opportunity to remind his audience that he was from Colorado and the son of a licensed firearms dealer. When discussing Colorado’s magazine ban and private transfer restrictions in 2014, Glaze assured that the laws improved safety, but that the “Second Amendment is going to be protected.”

Supreme Court Asked to Review Maryland's Gun Ban
A group of Maryland citizens, with the support of the National Rifle Association, filed a petition to the United States Supreme Court on Friday seeking to reverse a Court of Appeals ruling that stripped some of America’s most popular rifles of Second Amendment protection. The 4th Circuit ruling in the case Kolbe v. Hogan is a direct contradiction of the Supreme Court’s 2008 decision, District of Columbia v. Heller, which re-affirmed American citizens’ right to self-defense.

“March” Madness: Media Hypes Non-Event at NRA Headquarters
Numbers don’t lie. But gun control groups and the news media do. That explains why so many accounts of last Friday’s so-called Women’s March From #NRA2DOJ bear no resemblance to the event those of us who were actually onsite at NRA Headquarters witnessed with our own eyes.

Home Alone in Washington State
Back in 2013, when Washington State’s anti-gun groups rolled out Initiative 594, they promised voters this “universal background check” law would save lives by keeping “firearms out of dangerous hands” because private gun sales would be subjected to a NICS check done through a licensed dealer. Prior to the enactment of the law, representatives of the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility, the main proponent of 594, disingenuously described the measure as a “common sense” law that “simply applies the current system of background checks to all sales.”
