Pro Gun Laws Continue To Be Attacked

From Bearing Arms:

On today’s Bearing Arms’ Cam & Co. Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation joins the show to talk about the growing threat to firearms preemption laws, which are currently being challenged as part of a coordinated assault by cities and gun control groups around the nation. While these challenges aren’t getting as much attention as Beto O’Rourke’s call for firearms confiscation, Gottlieb says the attacks on preemption pose a real threat to the right to keep and bear arms and shouldn’t be ignored by gun owners, even if they’re not drawing a lot of media attention.

Self Defense Tax

From Gun Owners of America:

Under provisions of the Pittman-Robertson Act (P-R), handguns are taxed at the confiscatory rate of 10 percent and ammunition, rifles and shotguns are taxed at an even more outrageous 11 percent. Enacted in 1937, P-R was originally levied at a rate of 11 percent on rifles, shotguns and all types of ammunition and in 1970, handguns were added and taxed at 10 percent.[1] Many gun owners are unaware they are even paying this tax because it is collected by manufacturers, based on the wholesale price of a firearm or ammunition. Don’t be fooled, it is built into the price you pay for a new firearm or ammunition; the manufacturers are not paying the gun tax, you are.

Oklahoma To Be Next Constitutional Carry State?

From Gun Owners of America:

That whirlwind — Constitutional Carry — would make Oklahoma the 16th state in the country to recognize the right to protect yourself and your family without first getting the government’s permission. This would mean that nearly a third of the fifty states would be “Constitutional Carry” states.

Larry Pratt Is The New Voice Of Gun Owners

The NRA and Wayne LaPierrre have not, in my opinion, made a decent argument in favor of gun ownership. Larry Pratt has filled that void with a strong and clearly defined argument in favor of liberty. Below are some highlights.
