    Washington D.C. Begins Issuing Carry Permits – All 8 of Them

    As you're probably aware, Washington D.C.'s complete ban on concealed carry outside of the home was struck down in federal court last year. This meant that the district had to put a set of laws in place to allow concealed carry. However, the set of laws they chose isn't much better than the complete ban. The district is currently "may issue" and you have to show a "need" for a permit before one will be issued. Just... Read More »

    New Pennsylvania Law Gives State Preemption Teeth

    State firearms preemption can be a wonderful thing.  As someone who has fought hard locally for gun rights, I have used state preemption several times to get local government to change their tune and repeal laws.  The one problem that many individuals face though is that even though a local government may be breaking the law, there is no teeth to help to dissuade them from continuing to break state law.  To be able...

Of course, the firearms community immediately jumped all over it with ridicule and mockery. Personally, I've never taken one of Costa's classes and don't really have an opinion one way or another. However, when I saw the video I just assumed the guy... Read More »
