Shortly after the Las Vegas shooting, Jordan Peterson replied to a question about gun control in America.Peterson believes only the police and army being armed is dangerous, and that the citizenry should be equally dangerous.He also feels that legislation would do "zero" to stop school shootings in America. None In 2016, 64 percent of homicides in the United States resulted from gun violence; in Canada, the number was 30.5 percent the year prior. England and Wales posted much lower numbers duri...

Swalwell Smear of NRA is a Sign of Things to Come

Anti-gun Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) California – -(AmmoLand.com)- Last week, Representative Eric Swalwell, who has in the past proposed an Australia-style “buyback” of certain firearms and who threatened to nuke gun owners who wouldn’t turn in their guns, claimed on Twitter that the NRA threatened Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Well, that was a lie and one that was quickly shot down in the wake of his tweet. But Swalwell’s doubled down on his smears and lies, claiming the NRA is taking Russi...

How To Prepare to Carry a Gun

Protecting Our Students in the Classroom, Defense Training Motivated By Love

  Sandy Hook: Never Again U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- I sat in on a training course for school teachers. I watched their faces in class. They were focused on the instructor in front of them. The instructor paced back and forth in jerky steps. He spoke in loud and uneven outbursts. His fists clenched. Sometimes he threw a pointed finger across the audience. His emotions were barely contained. What made this man so animated and so angry? This was a training class where school staff learn to be arm...

New Jersey State Senator Jeff Van Drew Lies about Gun Control

No gun owner or New Jerseyan in his or her right mind would or should ever vote for him, let alone send Jeff Van Drew to Congress. Jeff Van Drew should be fired, not promoted. New Jersey –-(Ammoland.com)- From its founding in 2010, NJ2AS enjoyed a pretty good relationship with Senator Jeff Van Drew. We were disappointed with the lack of action on any improvements to NJ's perilous gun laws, but he had promised us that as long as Senator Sweeney was Senate President they would not pass any anti-...

Which Banks Are In, And Which Banks Are Out Of The Firearms Business?

From WiscoDave, this: Bloomberg reports that the $40 million is on top of $431 million Wells Fargo has issued to gun manufacturers since the December 14, 2012, Sandy Hook attack. This means Wells Fargo is not only bucking the corporate gun control trend in 2018 but has also withstood the firearm divestiture campaign that launched following Sandy Hook. On April 15, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Wells Fargo stemmed the tide of the push for new financial restrictions on gun makers and sellers ...

America's oldest gun manufacturer files for bankruptcy

Fresh on the heels of the country-wide protests for gun control reform, Remington has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The timing seems like a perfect reaction to the recent backlash for the school shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School, but the cause is more likely Donald Trump. While Remington has struggled with a negative public image after a shooter used a Remington rifle to kill 26 people at Sandy Hook, gun sales always take a dive when a Republican president is in office.
