Washington Attacks Gun Owners While Failing To Prosecute Criminals

From Ammoland:

It evidently doesn’t matter that the two suspects in last month’s fatal fracas could not legally possess, much less carry, firearms. While the state Department of Licensing last Friday advised Ammoland News that there are now 647,233 active CPLs in the state—the highest number of any far western state, except for Utah—suspects William Tolliver and Marquise Latrelle Tolbert don’t have one. They were apprehended after being on the run more than a week, during which time they became examples of a justice system in serious need of repair.

California City With Most Carry Permits Has Least Homicides

From Bearing Arms:

New data out of California provides more evidence that the presence of legal gun owners and lawful gun carries doesn’t increase crime.  The Fresno Bee recently reported that Fresno County has the highest number of concealed carry licensees in the state, followed by Orange County.  If “more guns equals more crime”, then more people carrying guns should lead to more crime as well, and yet both Fresno and Orange County have lower homicide rates than Los Angeles County, home to more than 10-million residents but just 424 concealed carry licensees.

Chicago Dem Calls For More Gun Permits

From The Truth About Guns:

LaShawn Ford has served as an Illinois State Representative since 2007.  Like his fellow Chicago Democrat General Assembly members, he has been a fairly consistent vote against gun rights since, well, forever.
But he recently appeared on radio station WLS-AM encouraging residents to arm themselves and get their carry licenses.
