  • Pro-American Band Advocating for the 2nd Amendment

    Madison Rising (www.madisonrising.com) is a pro-American band whose latest cause is to help bring awareness to the relentless attacks on one of the most cherished rights granted in the Constitution: The right to keep and bear arms. On January 30th, the band released a video for their single “Right To Bear.”

    The song and video have already generated considerable controversy regarding the Second Amendment and the ongoing issues of open and concealed carry gun laws around the country. The band encouraged their fans to go out and purchase Starbucks coffee on Valentine’s Day when the The National Gun Victim’s Action Council (NGAC) lead an effort of a national boycott of Starbucks Coffee to try to force a change in the company’s “open carry” gun policy at hundreds of its retail locations.

    “There’s a reason it’s the second amendment,” continued Dave Bray(Navy Vet, NRA member), the band’s lead singer. “It’s not the ninth, it’s not the fourth; it’s the second. And at the end of the day, it’s the only thing protecting the first. We’re talking last line of defense. The authors of the constitution knew exactly what they were doing and these rights are just as important now as they were two centuries ago. It doesn’t matter how technologically advanced a society may become. Human nature never changes.”

    The band’s Right To Bear video prominently features several high profile anti-gun politicians such as Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, John Kerry, and Nancy Pelosi, as well as key pro-gun advocates like NRA president David Keene. The band openly endorses national right to carry laws.

    It’s not often we come across talented artists who are also advocates for the 2nd Amendment. Please support our friends of Madison Rising by visiting their website or purchasing their single, Right to Bear Arms:

  • Ron Paul on Gun Control & “Plan to Restore America” Deficit Plan

    “Since police cannot be everywhere all at one time, a large part of our personal safety depends on our ability to defend ourselves”
    - Ron Paul

    When we regularly talk about law abiding citizens and the carrying of firearms, we often don’t realize that that right exists for a single reason: the U.S. Constitution. Our Founding Fathers witnessed the horrible oppression of the British Empire and vowed to create a nation that would prevent oppression in the form of a Constitutional Republic. The 2nd Amendment, which most of our readers are very familiar with, is one of the many constitutional freedoms that the Founders of our country were adamant about instilling in the backbone of our great nation.

    Despite the media’s disdain for him, Ron Paul is the only Republican presidential candidate who stands for individual liberty and who WILL protect your rights under the 2nd Amendment – and your rights under the rest of the U.S. Constitution. The video below is Ron Paul’s response to the shooting of Gabriel Giffords and the Anti-Gun politician using the tragedy as a platform to pass anti-gun legislation.

    “Liberty only has meaning if we still believe in it when terrible things happen”

    -Ron Paul

    You may be sitting at your computer desk saying, “Ron Paul? Bill O’Reilly and Charles Krauthammer say he’s crazy!” Before making a judgement on Doctor/Congressman Ron Paul, realize that he is the only candidate who has a strong position on your right to legally carry concealed weapons, as well as a plan that will significantly reduce our nation’s debt and Restore America Now. Don’t believe me? Look up his voting record. He is the only politician in the Beltway who has consistently voted the same on EVERY issue and has voted against every issue that impedes on YOUR individual liberty or on the US Constitution – which resulted in his fellow congressmen dubbing him “Dr. No.”

    The Media dismisses him as crazy. But Why? Maybe it’s because he believes that every law-abiding citizen has the right to legally carry concealed weapons to protect themselves as well as their fellow citizens? Or maybe he is too against-the-grain in believing that the federal government should not be intruding on your personal freedoms? Or maybe the media ignores him because he doesn’t want our high school graduates dying in a dessert half-way across the world for an unknown goal? Or maybe, just MAYBE, he is “unelectable” because he wants to drastically cut entitlement spending to bring our country back to the great nation that our Founding Fathers intended?

    Ron Paul vs CBO Budget Plan

    If all of the above is considered “crazy” by the mainstream media, then count me in. The “mainstream” politicians have been a detriment to this country for the past 20 years in every respect – and the “regular joe’s” are the people who end up suffering. While Washington politicians live comfortably in their mansions and vacationing on their yachts, Ron Paul is vowing to not only drastically decrease the perks of being a congressmen/woman, but also decrease the Presidential salary by 92% if he is elected – that is, he will change the current $450,000 salary that Obama is receiving down to the average American salary of $39,000 – what does that say about a man’s character?

    Below is Ron Paul’s Restore America Now plan, released today (10/17/2011) which breaks down exactly how he will return this country to what our Founding Fathers had intended. It is an easy read in that it is only a few pages. No matter your political leanings, your already-established thoughts on Ron Paul, or anything else – please read his plan. No other candidate including (and especially) Obama has any plan that comes close to the detail and specificity of Paul’s plan to cut spending and protect your Constitutional rights.

  • VIDEO: Smith & Wesson 22 as a CCW?

    When you are considering a CCW, most people immediately think of a 9mm Glock or other compact or subcompact gun. We often forget to give homage to the classic CCW, the Smith and Wesson 22. A reliable gun that you may remember from some old cop movies, the Swiss and Wesson Model 22 has surely cemented itself into concealed carry history. Although this gun is simple, safe and reliable, I still find myself preferring a compact 9mm when I leave my house in the morning. I’m not sure if it’s the grip of the modern guns or that I find the compacts easier to carry concealed, but I find myself much more comfortable with a Glock than that of a revolver. Check out the video below demonstrating this gun and let me know what you think in the comments:

  • VIDEO: M4 vs 50 Watermelons

    This video is just for fun, but shows you the sheer power of automatic weapons. Our friend, hickok45, shows us what an automatic M4 can do when faced up to a few disobedient watermelons. Not exactly a CCW, but hey, what the hell. Enjoy.

  • VIDEO: OH Policeman Goes Berserk on Legal Concealed Carry Citizen

    As we all know, the varying laws and regulations from state-to-state are both ever-changing and extremely complicated. One of the many things that CCW carriers must be aware of is whether your state is a “Must Inform” state or not. The “Must Inform” language simply means that if you are stopped by an officer in any regard, you must inform him that you have a weapon on you. The problem with must inform states like Ohio is that the timing is arbitrary and undefined. Do you have to inform the officer within 10 seconds? 30 seconds? 5 minutes? The below video was released by a great CCW organization who we deeply respect, Ohioccw.org, and we definitely suggest you visit them regularly if you are an Ohio resident.

    It goes without saying that we support law enforcement officers in every respect. Unfortunately, this video is a testament to the clarity problems behind Must Inform laws that are present in states like Ohio.

    Is your state “Must Inform?”

    Questions (Comment below)
    - Do you think the officer acted inappropriately?
    - Should the driver have made more of an effort when Officer 2 was in the backseat?
    - Old friend or prostitute? You decide.

  • VIDEO: Armed Homeowner Deters Home Invasion During the Daytime

    I don’t have to remind all of you about the frightening reality of home invasions. As our economy gets worse and worse and Washington politicians bitch and moan on a regular basis, there seems to be a steady increase of crime, including home invasions, in both urban and suburban areas. The first step is realizing that you and your family are at risk no matter where you live. The second step is preparing for a home invasions. The video below depicts a man in Arizona who, luckily, prepared himself for a home invasion and deterred these worthless scum from entering his home.

  • VIDEO: Glock 27 vs. Springfield XD Subcompact

    If you’re interested in concealed carry (which I imagine you are because you arrived here at CCW By State), then you should give some consideration to the Glock 27 and the XD subcompact. It’s hard to engage in any CCW conversation without the glock 27 or XD subcompact popping into the debate, so we found a great video comparing these two renowned weapons. This video compares everything from measurements to CCW ability, so watch this video and let us know what you think in the comments below.

    What do you think about the Glock 27 as your CCW? And the Xd subcompact? Sound off below:

  • VIDEO: Glock 23 4th Generation (.40 Caliber) Review

    Whether you own a Glock or not, you can’t deny that Glocks are, for the most part, very reliable weapons. This video is a review of the .40 Caliber Glock 23, Generation 4 and was done by the same youtube user that created this great Gun Safety Video. Sound off about the Glock 23 in the comments below.

  • VIDEO: Good Guy 1, Bad Guy 0

    Day after day, we wake up, pick up the newspaper, and read about the political bickering between democrats and republicans surrounding our right to CCW in relation to the 2nd Amendment. What can’t be explained at a Congressional Hearing or a gun blog is the reality that we face every day as citizens. That is, the dangers that present every single one of us at our home, place of business or elsewhere. This video takes place in Columbus, Ohio at an East Side Motel where a criminal decided he would walk in, demand money and point a gun in the faces of the desk clerks (completely disregarding the safety of a new mother and her child). Shortly thereafter, one of the clerks draws his CCW and reacts. If this isn’t a testament for CCW legislation for all states, I don’t know what is.

  • VIDEO: Protect Your Family from a Home Invasion

    It seems like every day we hear about another home invasion occurring too close to home but we never do anything about it. Owning a handgun and/or long gun and knowing how to use it is the first step, but it’s not the only step. The goal of CCW By State is to provide readers with every ounce of information that we feel may help you protect yourself, your family and your rights under the 2nd Amendment. After watching this video, I think it provides very useful information on how to prepare your home for a home invasion.
