Good Guy With A Gun

From The Washington Times:

Fortunately, in September 2019, the state of Texas clarified many of its existing statutes on firearm possession, allowing licensed gun owners to carry firearms into places of worship. Imagine how much worse the West Freeway Church of Christ tragedy could have been had this shooting occurred in gun-control-obsessed states like California, New York or Massachusetts instead. Even worse, imagine a world without the protections of the Second Amendment so brilliantly enshrined by our nation’s Founders.

How Women Can Prepare For Dangerous Encounters

From The Federalist:

If you decide a firearm is the route you want to take, it’s important to do so methodically. Every state has different laws about how to possess a handgun legally, so follow the guidelines in your state. In fact, contrary to some of the outlandish rhetoric on social media last week, concealed carry permit holders are some of the most law-abiding citizens around. Resolve to do likewise. Start with the U.S. Concealed Carry site, which offers good pointers.

Unserious Gun Proposals

From National Review:

The usual ghouls were on their usual soapboxes before the blood had even dried. “Background checks!” they cried. Federal authorities then revealed that the killer already had been denied during an earlier attempt to purchase a firearm; our background-check system works when we work it. Which we do not always do: Sometimes, sales are approved when they should not be, as the result of delays in the background-check system; when the authorities become aware that such a sale has been wrongly approved, they make no effort at all to recover the firearms. It just is not done. Why? Bureaucratic inertia.
