Colorado Gun Club Offers Free Concealed Carry Training For Teachers

The Centennial Gun Club in Centennial, Colorado is gearing up for the school year by offering free concealed carry classes to teachers. About forty teachers have already completed the course and dozens more have signed up.

Several of the participants said they were inspired to learn about firearms following recent school shootings.

“While I am a teacher, those kids, those students in my class are my kids, and my first responsibility is to protect them at all costs,” said one teacher, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of losing her job.

Since 2012, at least eight states have passed laws allowing armed employees in schools. Last year, Texas passed a law allowing schools to designate workers who are allowed access to guns on campus.

In Colorado, the state allows school districts decide whether or not to allow teachers to carry in the classroom. Earlier this year, the Colorado legislature defeated an effort to legalize the practice everywhere in the state — despite polls showing popular support for the measure.

“People are a little crazy. They choose gun free zones”, said Paul Stanley, the operations manager of the Centennial Gun Club. “We want to make sure teachers at least have an opportunity to become familiarized, face some fears and become comfortable with handguns.”

Six Flags Denies Admission To Disabled Veteran Wearing Pro-Gun T-Shirt

Second Amendment supporters can’t even go to the amusement park without being subjected to anti-gun harassment.

Mario Alejandro, a disabled former Marine who served in the 2003 invasion of Iraq, was recently denied entry into Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey due to his supposedly “offensive” pro-gun t-shirt.

The shirt, a Father’s Day gift from his children purchased from the non-profit Reconnaissance Foundation, included an American flag AR-15 and the words “Keep Calm and Return Fire.”

While walking through the front gate, a Six Flags security guard grabbed Alejandro and forbade him from entering. When Alejandro explained that he was an Iraq War veteran wearing pro-military attire, the guard replied: “I don’t care, you have to take that off… or you need to buy another shirt to put over it.’”

When Alejandro refused, explaining that the shirt was not offensive and had personal value, the guard once again berated him and forced him to leave.

Six Flags Great Adventure spokeswoman Kristin Siebeneicher tried to explain their harassment by saying that the park  “does not permit clothing with vulgar, offensive or violent language or images.”

What’s truly “vulgar” is the way in which Six Flags treated the First Amendment rights of a wounded veteran.

NRA Abandons Gun Rights For The Legally Blind

The NRA quietly deleted a video discussing gun rights for the blind from its website after facing ridicule from the liberal media.

The video pointed out that the blind should be able to exercise their Second Amendment rights just like everyone else. In it, NRA commentator Dom Raso said: “Every law-abiding blind individual should be able to have whatever guns they want. And if you disagree with that statement or you haven’t thought it all the way through, you don’t take your rights seriously enough.”

But now the NRA is trying to sweep that statement under the rug. Maybe they think that there should be exceptions in the Second Amendment? Do they think that only certain people should be allowed to have gun rights?

The truth is that the NRA cares more about its image than it does about gun rights. As soon as liberals and gun control groups start poking fun at them, they immediately back down and cover their tracks.

The NRA should stop caring so much about their image and go back to focusing on the Second Amendment.

Missouri Voters Support Nullification Of Gun Control Laws

Voters in Missouri took a stand against gun control yesterday by mandating that state legislators fight against any and all federal gun control efforts.

A full sixty six percent of voters supported Constitutional Amendment 5, which bans state enforcement of federal gun laws.

“When the federal government attempts to enforce a law, order, rule or regulation that violates the right to keep and bear arms, the state of Missouri is now required to step in and defend against that,” said Michael Boldin of the Tenth Amendment Center.

The amendment will also compel legislators to scrutinize existing gun rights restrictions in Missouri.  It also removed language from the state constitution that said it “shall not justify the wearing of concealed weapons.”

Boldin says that the law sets the stage for the complete nullification of federal gun laws.

“Missouri voters spoke loud and clear today. They want their state to stand in the gap and protect the right to keep and bear arms against all comers,” said Boldin. “Today was step one. Step two is now. Pass the 2nd Amendment Preservation Act, banning state enforcement of every so-called federal gun law. And from there, step three and four will be to bring gun control to an end in Missouri,” he said.
