Restricted Arms was created to serve a two-fold purpose:

First, it is a one-stop-shop for exercising your 2nd Amendment rights in states where buying a gun isn't easier than buying fresh vegetables. This is the place to go for step-by-step explanations of the many onerous requirements that you have to go through to purchase a handgun, rifle or shotgun in states like California, New York, New Jersey, Hawaii and others. In addition to providing a guide for the government-mandated hurdles, we also plan offer a searchable directory of gun shops close to you.

Second, we have a blog that is updated regularly on efforts by politicians across they country to curtail your God-given, 2nd Amendment rights; from the lowest local bureaucrat right up to the halls of Congress and the White House. Here you'll find a chronicle of the battle to keep the rights guaranteed by our Founding Fathers, along with other news that could impact gun owners across America.
