Ammunition Hottest Selling Item at California Gun Show

The liberal progressives in the federal government are doing everything in their power to disarm the American people and to prevent them from buying ammunition. Some states are also following the example of our socialist leaders by trying to pass state laws that ban certain weapons, restrict the purchase of ammunition, require universal gun registration and background checks and restrict private sales or transfer of firearms.

A Second Declaration of Independence

Reading the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States back-to-back makes clear the Founding Fathers’ focus on individual liberty.

The original plan for this country was a federal, not Federalist, plan. It emphasized local government as the most important government for the individual. That plan took a slight detour with the Declaration and the Constitution, both of which included populist language (as if the national government could or should interface directly with “the people”), but, in effect, civil government even then was generally decentralized—local. What did this mean? It meant you were free. If local officials Read more […]
