Schools are safer than they were in the 90s, and school shootings are not more common than they used to be, researchers say
Northeastern University

The deadly school shooting this month in Parkland, Florida, has ignited national outrage and calls for action on gun reform.

The Second Amendment does not give us the right to bear arms
American Thinker

In speaking with many fellow gun-owners, I have come to realize that most people don't know that the Second Amendment does not give us the right to bear arms.  The Second Amendment states that the right to bear arms "shall not be infringed"; it does not confer that right.  The Second Amendment is an admonition to government that it may not take away your right to bear arms,which is inherent.

RESULTS: Where Do You Keep Your Gun At Night
Concealed Nation

Most everyone has a different way of storing their firearm away at night.

Whether you sleep with a handgun tucked under your pillow like an action movie hero or you keep a shotgun unloaded on a rack nearby, people tend to govern their choice in storage based on the answers to two major questions:

  1. How quickly can I get to my firearm if I need it?
  2. Is it stored in such a way that other parties — robbers, children, guests not familiar with firearms — can’t get to it?

Resources for Conversations with Anti-Gun Friends
The Cornered Cat

As a rule, I don’t particularly enjoy talking about gun politics. It’s one of the (many!) reasons I’ve generally steered away from the subject on this blog. There have been some exceptions, of course, because sometimes it’s just about unavoidable.

America’s rifle: Why so many people love the AR-15
NBC News

There are a lot of reasons people love their AR-15 semiautomatic rifles, and it doesn't much matter to them what the haters say.

For some, the gun is a tool, a finely tuned machine that can cut down an animal or intruder, or pierce a distant target, with a single precise shot.

For others, it is a toy, a sleek beast of black plastic and metal that delivers a gratifying blast of adrenaline.

And for many, it is a symbol, the embodiment of core American values — freedom, might, self-reliance.

14 Times Mass Shootings Were Stopped by Good Guys With Guns

In the wake of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week, the debate about how our nation’s schools should be secured is once again in full swing. While President Trump is arguing for arming a percentage of the teachers, others say such notions are ludicrous. Many don’t believe civilians with guns ever stop mass shootings.

They are wrong. Civilians use firearms in defense of themselves and others every day...

3 Tips to Protect Against Home Invasion
NRA Family

At a Cub Scouts meeting a few years ago, my son and I were tasked with creating a home fire escape plan in order to earn a merit badge. We wrote out what we’d do in case of fire, how to tell if the fire’s outside your door and how to move through smoke. We teach fire safety to our children in order to keep them safe from a fire inside the home, but what do we teach them how to be safe from violence entering our home from the outside?
