Another mass shooting, another display of gun ignorance in the media

Friday afternoon a deranged nut (we here at Restricted Arms do not use the names of mass shooters in order to deny them the notoriety they so desperately seek) went into the Virginia Beach, Va., municipal center and killed 12 innocent people before police arrived on the scene and shot the killer dead.

Former President Barack Obama Lies About U.S. Gun Laws in Brazil

Former President Barack Obama was famously the best gun salesman of the last fifty years as he, time after time, (largely impotently) threatened legislation or regulations that would make it more difficult to purchase common firearms. In his post-presidency he has continued his anti-gun tirades, this time peddling lies about U.S. gun laws in Brazil. […]

Houston Police Chief Slams Bill Allowing unlicensed Texans to Carry After Disasters

Texas as a whole may be reliably conservative and pro-gun rights, but several of the major metropolitan areas are reliably liberal; Austin, San Antonio and Houston are cases in point. Appointed officials like Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo reflect the views of their more liberal masters, and dutifully decry legislation that could potentially arm more […]

California city sued over stricter gun theft reporting law

California voters approved Prop. 63 in 2016. The proposition, backed by then-gubernatorial hopeful Gavin Newsom, introduced a plethora of new firearms restrictions, including requiring the report of the theft or loss of a firearm within five days.

Last month, the Pittsburgh City Council passed three gun control laws in violation of a state law prohibiting municipalities from doing any such thing.

Nevada Democrats Gut School Safety Funding

Democrats appear to care about school safety only insofar as that it can be used a cudgel to pass more gun control laws when it turns out their gun-free zone signs don't actually stop evildoers. Last Thursday, Democrats in Nevada voted to eviscerate funding for school resource officers and other facility improvements designed around school […]

Nevada Preemption Provision May Die in Senate Committee

Restricted Arms reported earlier this year that one of the provisions included in an omnibus gun control bill making its way through the Nevada legislature stripped a 2015 preemption rule from state law, allowing local municipalities—specifically Clark County, home of Las Vegas—to pass more stringent gun laws than those of surrounding counties. Reports from the […]

Minnesota GOP deals blow to new gun control proposals

Minnesota Democrats (known in that state as DFL for Democrat-Farm-Labor) have made it a priority to pass additional gun control laws, only to be stymied by Republicans who still control the state Senate. The proposed gun control laws would institute universal background checks for private transfers of firearms and institute so-called "red-flag" laws which turn […]
