1.) Our decision basically rides on the Peruta v. San Diego case. That case was argued earlier in the morning than Baker was argued. Therefore, the decision in that case was released prior. Instead of writing a new decision, the (3) judge panel basically said, “Hey, look at this case – it says why Baker should win.” Our case then had its preliminary injunction vacated and remanded to the district court to be heard in light of Peruta. Remember, a preliminary injunction was us basically saying, “This is so jacked up that you should give me a carry license while we wait to figure out the merits of the case.” ... Read More »]]>

“In the midst of one proposed gun ban after another, the addition of these outstanding organizations to our Coalition means that those working hard to secure our Second Amendment rights are coming together to tell President Obama and our state legislatures that enough is enough,” remarked CCRKBA founder Alan Gottlieb. “The millions of law-abiding American gun owners have had it with being scapegoated for the crimes of the evil and insane.”
“There’s never been ... Read More »]]>

“Cheaper Than Dirt! is suspending online sales of firearms effective immediately. We are reviewing our policy internally, and will continue to be the leader in the outdoor industry with our full line of gear and accessories.”
HDF has in the past purchased some training gear from CTD. And, we have enjoyed hearing their ads on the local radio station supporting firearm sales. With that said, we will no longer, under any circumstance, be purchasing items from them. We encourage our supporters to the same.
The firearms community is a very strong and dedicated bunch. When you cave to some fake demands of our opponents, you are putting us in a bad position – essentially you are supporting their efforts, and countering ours. This is unacceptable.
We fully intend to boycott and inform others to do the same. ... Read More »]]>
So some good news just came in for gun owners. The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals just ruled in favor of civil rights in the Moore v. Madigan case. The Moore case at its core challenged the lack of a statute to carry a firearm. This worked out since there are statutes prohibiting the bearing of arms. Some silly arguments were made that people could carry unloaded in a container, but that is really not what the right to bear arms is about.
The court in Moore, appeared to reluctantly state that there is indeed a right to bear arms outside of the home; regardless, they said it – it’s written – and nothing will change it now. The decision was written as 2-1, and at this time I have not really gotten into reading the dissent. ... Read More »]]>
I want to start out with some facts of data here for you related to Hawaii. First, overall violent crime in Hawaii increased 8.7% from 2010 to 2011. Despite the well intentioned efforts of our Police and other law enforcement, crime in Hawaii continues to rise. Funny thing was that fact was also pointed out by the corporate counsel in our conceal carry lawsuit, which ... Read More »]]>
We wanted to take a brief moment and say happy Thanksgiving to all of our friends, family, and supporters. I hope that everyone has a good opportunity to spend some time with your friends, family and other loved ones. Don’t forget to give thanks and think about those who are deployed overseas and are unable to spend these holiday times with their families. Please keep them in your thoughts. Be safe!
The trailer of the movie, “Innocence of Muslims” allegedly has visual clips and dubbed dialogues that are offensive. As you may already be aware, this is also allegedly the cause for the recent chaos in Libya. The details of the movie and production aside, the point is that this movie is now being held in court as evidence to alter the laws relating to freedom of speech in the United States. Some commentators are in favor of restricting such expressions which may be offensive. And that my friends – is contrary to our Constitution!
With respect to free speech, the Constitution clearly says “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech.” Perhaps the Founders foresaw ... Read More »]]>
