    Black women on Chicago’s South Side are getting their concealed carry permits and arming up in light of the city’s continual violence.

    Breitbart News reported that nearly 4,400 were shot in Chicago in 2016 and there were almost 800 homicides. This year, Fourth of July weekend and the weekend of August 18-20 witnessed a revival of 2016-type violence. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that over 100 people were shot on Fourth of July weekend and another 63 were shot over the weekend of August 18-20.

    A total of 22 people were killed over those two weekends alone, and an increasing number of black women on Chicago’s South Side are not sitting around and waiting to be next.

    According to the Chicago Tribune, 51-year-old Vernetta Robinzine got her carry permit in the spring and talks of her gun by saying, “It’s like a part of me now.” She lives in Chicago’s South Austin neighborhood and says her home has been robbed and that she responded by putting so many locks on her doors that “she felt like a prisoner in her own house.”

    While our nation’s overall concealed carry landscape is a patchwork of frustrating laws many Americans struggle to navigate, it is heartening to know that 12 states makes things easy by allowing law-abiding residents to carry guns without any bureaucratic interference.

    This means 12 states recognize the Second Amendment as your concealed carry permit. The states are Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

    A brief overview of the carry laws of the permitless carry states follows:

    The American Bar Association is pushing state and local governments to adopt firearm confiscation laws similar to those in California.
    During their 2017 Annual Meeting, the ABA House of Delegates adopted Resolution 118B, which “urges governments to enact statutes, rules, or regulations authorizing courts to issue gun violence restraining orders, including ex parte orders.”

    The ex parte aspect of the resolution means the ABA is pushing confiscation orders that can be issued without any input from the gun owner.

    Breitbart News reported that California Democrats secured “gun violence restraining orders” after the May 23, 2014, Santa Barbara attack. That attack was a carried out by an individual who passed a background check for his firearms, registered his guns with the state — per law — and only used standard capacity magazines (10 rounds or less).

    On August 7, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) issued its first ever travel advisory warning American gun owners not to go to California unless they are willing to enter the state disarmed or risk going to jail.

    The gun rights group is “warning law-abiding armed citizens that their civil rights could be in jeopardy due to that state’s restrictive gun control laws.”

    SAF founder and executive vice president Alan Gottlieb observed:

    "The California Legislature has been out of control for years when it comes to placing restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of honest citizens. Right now, I wouldn’t suggest to any gun owner that they even travel through the state, much less to it as their final destination.

    Lawmakers in Sacramento either ignored or have forgotten that in 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court incorporated the Second Amendment to the states via the 14th Amendment in SAF’s landmark case of McDonald v. City of Chicago. The Second Amendment’s protection of the right to keep and bear arms applies to state and local governments, but they seem rather oblivious to that fact in the halls of California’s Legislature."

    During a Q&A session with the Los Angeles Times, gun control proponent Micheal Bloomberg claimed the number of American gun deaths exceeds the entire history of American military deaths.
    He offered no substantiation for this claim. Rather, he just interjected it into the dialogue, then moved on to the next point.

    According to the Los Angeles Times, Bloomberg admitted that gun control at the federal level is not going to happen anytime in the foreseeable future. He then talked about his efforts to circumvent Washington DC by going directly to the states via ballot initiatives and state legislatures. But his wins at the state level have been scarce at best, and one of his few wins–Nevada–was blocked by Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt.
