Breaking: ATF reportedly relieves Fast and Furious managers prior to OIG report

Women need national Right-to-Carry reciprocity

Some states would like to remove the words "bear arms" from the right to "keep and bear arms," but the plain fact is that self defense and the right to have access to an effective means of self defense is protected by the Constitution, and that protection does not end at your front door. The good news is that the House recently passed a bill, H.R. 822, that would require the 49 states that issue concealed carry permits to honor all state permits. If this bill becomes law, it would be an important step in the right direction and would help women protect themselves against violence while traveling.

North Carolina: Women arming themselves

Many women these days are arming themselves so they can be prepared for the worst. On Jan. 14, women will receive free lessons on shotgun and pistol safety, proper use and firing. The women have signed up for different reasons, but they all have one thing in common; they want to be comfortable with a firearm. "I've never liked guns; I can't stand 'em," said Barbara Ingram, who signed up for Ladies' Day at DeWitt's Game Farm. "My husband had guns but we never kept them out. I'm by myself now." After Ingram's husband passed away, she realized she might need to protect herself one day. She has her husband's pistol and hopes to get acquainted with it.

Pro-Second Amendment Companion Bill Pre-Filed for New Mexico Legislature's Upcoming Thirty-Day Session!
Last week, state Senator Bill Payne (R-ABQ) pre-filed Senate Bill 26, the Senate companion measure toHouse Bill 32, which was introduced in December by state Representative Bill Rehm (R-ABQ) and previously reported here.  This legislation would repeal Section 30-7-9 of the New Mexico Criminal Code, which limits the purchase of rifles and shotguns by New Mexico residents to their home state and contiguous states.  Repeal of this state law would eliminate this restrictive language and enable residents of New Mexico to purchase long guns in non-contiguous states, and residents of non-contiguous states to purchase long guns in New Mexico.

Please contact your state legislators and urge them to support both SB 26 and HB 32 when the Legislature convenes in Santa Fe on January 17!
