A Good Thing….

Study shows 1 in 20 adults have concealed carry permits.

“Not only did [President] Obama’s election increase gun sales, it also increased the number of concealed handgun permits,” reads the report. “Initially the increase in permits was slow, growing from roughly 2.7 million permit holders in 1999 to 4.6 million in 2007. But the number of concealed handgun permits literally exploded during the Obama presidency.”

A Time for Mourning….

A Time for Mourning….

— And then time to end the military gun ban!

 “I’m a Marine. And this really is hitting me a little harder here than normal that [these Marines] weren’t able to protect themselves at the time this occurred. We need people that are armed.” — former Marine Sergeant Harry Houck

Once again, a tragic shooting — this time at the two military locations in Chattanooga, Tennessee — has gripped the nation.

And here at Gun Owners of America, our thoughts and prayers are for the families of the victims.

More Lies From: Everytown’s Editorial Arm, “The Trace”, pushes propaganda on self defense and firearms

Lies.

Data shows otherwise but facts and truth do not fit their agenda..

So they lie.

 Everytown’s Editorial Arm, “The Trace”, pushes propaganda on self defense and firearms.

The simple truth is Hemenway’s “study” didn’t gain much traction because his findings are problematic at best.  At the core of the study’s failures is Hemenway’s reliance on self-reports of defensive gun uses (DGUs) based on responses in the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS).  Using the NCVS for the type of study conducted by Hemenway is inappropriate for several reasons, including: the NCVS relies on self reports of participants; is not anonymous;  was not designed to measure DGUs;  and does not ask participants about DGUs directly.  Even though Hemenway would never admit it, these issues make the NCVS a extremely poor choice for the study of DGUs due to how unreliable the reporting is.
