California's Assault Weapons Ban Struck Down

On Friday, Judge Roger T. Benitez issued a 94-page opinion striking down California's more than 30 year ban on "assault weapons."

Anti-gun arguments range from ineffectual to insane

H.R. 127 Gun Control Bill Aims to Gut the Second Amendment

When politicians insist that they're only in favor of "commonsense" gun control laws, they're lying—every time. Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) has introduced H.R. 127, the Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act, which is as audacious as it is draconian.
