    Wisconsin to Approve Concealed Carry-9


    The Politician's Republic of Illinois is now the only state that doesn't recognize the Second Amendment.

    Wisconsin will be the 49th state to permit the carrying of concealed firearms when Gov. Scott Walker signs into law a bill that passed the state's house and senate with strong majority votes.

    Once Walker signs the bill, Illinois will be the last state which refuses to recognize the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights.

    Brownells Is Now Selling Ammunition-2


    Starting today you can order ammunition from Brownells and its subsidiaries Sinclair International and

    With this move, Brownells joins other large players in the mail-order ammo business like Cabela’s and Midwayusa.

    I took a look at what Brownells has in stock and it is a wide-ranging list. In rifle ammo there are several difficult to find cartridges like the Weatherby  magnums and Remington Short-Action Ultra Mags but you’ll find all the standard offerings—like 25 different .223 loads—as well.

    One nice feature is the “Ammo Advisor” tool that allows you to check off attributes (i.e. 9mm pistol ammo by Winchester for self defense) to zero in on a specific load. It’s a useful feature.

    Doctors Sue Florida Governor Over Privacy of Firearm Owners Act-6


    Three Florida doctors are suing the governor and four other top Florida officials in Miami Federal Court, claiming the recently adopted “Privacy of Firearm Owners Act" is unconstitutional because it doesn't recognize a doctor's divine status as a god who is not subject to the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
    The Act, also known as the "Physician Gag Law," prohibits doctors from asking patients if they own firearms because firearm ownership is irrelevant, unless as an exploitable prelude to denying heath care for political and personal reasons. The Act threatens doctors who pry into patients' privacy with loss of their medical licenses.
    But doctors say their First Amendment right to demand answers to whatever they ask -- since they are doctors, you know -- supersedes your right to privacy.

    Is the UN's Small Arms Treaty a Threat to the Second Amendment? -7


    Fears that the proposed United Nation's "Small Arms Treaty" will endanger Americans' Second Amendment rights have been dismissed by many -- including some gun-rights advocacy groups -- as an irrelevant distraction in the ongoing civil rights struggle to ensure local, state, and federal government in America uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
