(White House photo) Arizona/United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- In 1968, Second Amendment supporters nearly found themselves in a deep hole.

Cautionary Lessons for Gun Owners Learned From Licensing Drivers

Opinion Cautionary Lesson for Gun Owners Learned From Licensing Drivers Fayetteville, AR – -(AmmoLand.com)- One of the favorite rhetorical tropes of gun control advocates is to draw a comparison between how we treat the ownership and operation of cars and guns. The essence of the argument is that we allow people to own and use cars while regulating their use and designs, so gun control regulation will work and doesn’t have to be a disaster for gun rights. There are a number of flaws with thi...
