Fox News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Sometime later this week, the U.N. will finally unveil its Arms Trade Treaty. The exact date the treaty will be released is a secret. Russia, China, France — with its new Socialist government — Britain and the Obama administration are writing the treaty behind closed doors.

By AWR Hawkins: As I've written before, the right to keep and bear arms is the only right our Founding Fathers described as "necessary to the security of a free state."

Yet here we stand, perhaps unaware of the insidious actions of the Obama administration, and therefore, perhaps unprepared for the all-out assault that will soon be launched against the Second Amendment.

FINALLY, a gun lubricant exists that can withstand the most extreme conditions.
After using Safari Charlie Gun Lube Plus, Floro Lavalle with Sierra Outfitters in Argentina reported cleanings were much easier, they were needed less frequently and field jamming went down to almost non-existent. While these statements may seem generic and boring, consider that they shoot on average 2000-5000 rounds per day per gun, OVER 1 MILLION ROUNDS PER YEAR, and pair that with Lavalle’s full season of using Safari Charlie Gun Lube Plus. His report was an 83% reduction in repair/replacement costs. MORE...

Utne Reader    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
By J. Victoria Sanders: When I was 6 years old, my mother and I were robbed at gunpoint by two men looking for cash.

The incident was the first thing that came to mind when, more than 20 years later, I started the application process for a concealed handgun license. More
