Ohio: Pro-Gun Bills Expected for Floor Votes Tomorrow

Today, both Senate Bill 199 and Sub. House Bill 48 had their final hearings.  Both bills are expected for consideration on the House and Senate floors as early as tomorrow.  Anti-gun groups are pushing misguided agendas around the Statehouse and actively trying to defeat these bills; however, an employee’s fundamental right to self-defense shouldn’t stop simply because employees park their cars in publically accessible parking lots owned by their employers.  These important bills aim to protect the Second Amendment rights of active duty members, employees and law-abiding Ohioans across The Buckeye State.

Hawaii: Firearms Permit Application Fee Increases Due to Implementation of the “Rap Back” System

Today, December 5, 2016, the Honolulu Police Department announced that the firearm permit application fee has increased to $42.00.  This fee increase is one of the first effects of the provisions in Senate Bill 2954 which was signed into law last June.  Under SB 2954, the existing registration requirement was expanded and law-abiding Hawaii gun owners, and visitors, are now entered into the federal “Rap Back” system, which is a biometric database managed by the FBI for continuous monitoring. 

California: Legislature Convenes to Swear in New Members

Today, the Legislature convened to swear in the new members for the 2017 – 2018 session.  This is the first glimpse at the Legislature before they reconvene on January 4, 2017, with anti-gun legislators holding a super-majority in both legislative chambers.  

Commentary: Bloomberg has little to show for millions spent on gun control

This year, Bloomberg got a background check initiative onto the ballots of Maine and Nevada. He lost in Maine by 4 percent, and won in Nevada by just 0.8 percent. Now, Nevadans won't be able to privately transfer their firearms without going through a background check.

Film 'Miss Sloane' another reminder of Hollywood's liberal smugness

Celebrities did all they could to make Hillary Clinton “Madame President.” Smug, pro-Clinton PSAs. Testy DNC testimonials. Lavish Democratic fundraisers.

Now, the industry hopes a new film will change the public narrative on gun control. When will celebrities learn their one-sided sermons rarely change hearts or minds?
