A dramatic 911 call tells the tale of a Brevard County, Florida man who faced down a pair of  intruders. The two goblins pointed a gun at the resident's mother in her own bedroom.  In a nutshell, they thought holding momma hostage would motivate the resident to surrendering.  It didn't quite work out that way as the resident produced his...

ACLU

The American Civil Liberties Union, aka ACLU, has a long history of thinking the Bill of Rights only has nine amendments.  So imagine the surprise of many when the ACLU rolled out in opposition to a new gun control proposal in Illinois.

GET SOME:  Houston home invasion goes poorly for bad guys:  3 dead, 2 wounded

A 20-year-old Houston homeowner fought back as a home invasion crew stormed his home around 1am Saturday, January 19th.  After an extensive gun battle, the homeowner shot all five intruders, killing three. Photos show a very robust crime scene, to say the least. Defensive gun use of the day? Nah, this story merits a whole new meritorious award category:...

WITNESS SLIPS NEEDED:  HB0174, HB0240, HB0274

  We've warned everyone that the gun control push would come.  Big gun control has teamed up with Illinois Chicagoland Democrats to offer all of their old ideas and some new ones to implement Chicago-style gun control on all of Illinois.

STATUS CHECK:  Hearing Protection Act and National Reciprocity

With the election of Donald Trump, the People of the Gun eagerly looked forward to moving the ball forward on gun rights. We had great goals of taking suppressors out from under the National Firearm Act. What's more, we saw national reciprocity as attainable. Obviously none of that has taken place. So what happened and where do we go...

BOCH:  10 Self-Defense Lessons From Illinois’ Version of the George Zimmerman Trial

Beretta92FSJohn

Back about a million years ago, after graduating college, I decided I needed a handgun. At the same time, I didn't even know what I didn't know about guns and shooting.
