The right to keep and bear arms is, at a last resort, our most important right, thus it’s one that should be exercised with the utmost care and attention to detail.
Thus far, even ‘conservatives’ on the court have shown they aren’t comfortable with Americans being armed to the extent the Framers intended.
Owning a gun isn’t the same as knowing how to use it. Here are some suggestions for getting your defensive act together.
Taliban executions remind Americans to never give up arms they need for the primary reason the Constitution guarantees their right to have them.
The Biden administration’s decision to stop the importation of ammunition from Russia has some supporters of the right to arms chafing, but its effect can easily be minimized.
