California Gun Owners, Beware

Newly Amended Legislation Significantly Expands “Assault Weapon” Ban As previously discussed here, gun-control advocates wasted no time in exploiting recent crimes in Aurora, CO and Oak Park, WI to push for more restrictions on law-abiding citizens’ firearm ownership. The latest example comes from California. Senate Bill 249 was introduced last year as an agriculture bill, but was amended to ban so-called “assault weapon” conversion kits.

Carolyn McCarthy (NY-4) introduced new legislation to make the sale of ammunition safer for law-abiding Americans who are sick and tired of the ease with… Read More

A Woman’s view on Women & Self-Defense

A Woman’s view on “Women & Self-Defense”

Self-defense is something every woman is concerned with at some point in her life. I teach a self-defense class to women from time to time and they seem to leave with a better understanding of how they can change things in their life to help keep safe in this somewhat unpredictable world. Most people think that when you say “self-defense” you mean hand-to-hand or firearms’ defense. And, ladies if you can – do it. But, that’s not the only kind of defense against the evils of the world. Let’s take a look at where you live…No matter where you live, you want to be safe within your own home. Below… Read More
