Video: Armed Man Surprises His Carjacker (EXPLICIT LANGUAGE)

Fri, 22 May 2015 22:05:10 +0000

A man named Hashim Fannin was parked in front of a store when a strange man quickly hopped into the passenger seat. The carjacker, 61-year-old Edgar Horn, told Fannin, “You know what this.” Before Horn could continue with whatever came next in his intended speech, Fannin pulled his gun out and pointed it at him. “I asked him to get out the car, probably not in those exact words,” Fannin said. “I told him no, there’s no leaving, leaving was before you hopped into my car … at this point there is not leaving.” Fannin then held Horn on the ground at gunpoint until...

Supreme Court: Felons Can Sell Personal Firearms

Fri, 22 May 2015 21:29:22 +0000

The Supreme Court of the United States ruled Monday on a case involving a former Border Patrol Agent that was convicted of drug charges and had his firearms confiscated. The defendant, Henderson, in the case wanted to sell his personal firearms and use the money. Lower courts ruled that this violated the law because felons are not allowed to possess firearms. The lower courts said that the defendant could not do so as this violated the law. The firearms would remain the property of the confiscating agency. SCOTUS ruled 9-0 that this violated the defendant’s rights. While a convicted felon...

Good News for the Second Amendment in Washington D.C.

Thu, 21 May 2015 19:26:25 +0000

Good news from the nation’s capital: A federal judge has issued an injunction barring Washington D.C. from applying its vague “good cause” test as part of its controversial may-issue permitting scheme that has declined more permits than it has granted. The case was brought in February by the Second Amendment Foundation who joined the suit filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Wrenn v D.C., in support of three private citizens who were denied permits by the city. Two of these are residents of the city and the third a Florida resident who lives in Virginia. All three had their concealed carry permit...

UPS Now Refuses to Ship Suppressors

Thu, 21 May 2015 19:11:30 +0000

Every day, United Parcel Service (UPS) delivers over 15 million packages around the world. Now, not one of those packages will contain suppressors. Recently, UPS made the decision to stop all shipping of suppressors, even between those who are licensed. So far, there have been no statements from UPS as to why this is. “NSSF is working with UPS executives to determine what prompted the enforcement of this unwarranted policy. We are unaware of any thefts or losses that would explain the shipping company’s sudden decision to enforce a prohibition against shipment,” the National Sports Shooting Foundation stated in a press release....

Boy Scouts Ban Water Gun Fights Because It’s “Pointing a Firearm”

Wed, 20 May 2015 22:51:25 +0000

In a new list of approved activities for scouts the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) make clear that water gun fights are not allowed because “pointing a firearm” at someone–even a “simulated” firearm–is not “kind.” The ban on water gun fights was first addressed on a BSA blog, but was fleshed out in greater detail in the Boy Scouts of America National Shooting Manual. According to The Washington Times, scout leaders discussed the impetus behind the ban on a leadership blog, saying: “Why the rule? A Scouter once told me this explanation I liked quite a bit: A Scout is kind....
