Confiscationists are finding creative ways to put pressure on law-abiding gun owners. In addition to taking over the public health publication machine, which cranks out “authoritative” articles based upon gross distortions of reality and statistical sleights of hand, they have now begun to weaponize front-line health care personnel.
I witnessed this first-hand earlier this year. The Virginia Commonwealth University/Saint Mary’s Hospital/Virginia Department of Health “G...
Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America has, interestingly, been accused of being both NRA propaganda and wildly anti-gun. The varying reactions to this book suggest that author Adam Winkler has at least tried to take a balanced approach in his discussion.
This book gives an excellent panorama of the gun control debate, mostly centered on the D.C. v. Heller case. And the author’s conclusion seems to be somewhere near the middle of the range of propos...
On November 5th, control of both the House and Senate of the Virginia General Assembly flipped to Democrat control. The Virginia Democrats owe a huge debt to Michael Bloomberg for the millions he poured into the state, and they are returning the favor by pushing extreme, unconstitutional infringements on gun owners. They should have done better by Virginia.
[Ed: This article was just published in the California Rifle & Pistol Association's November-December issue of Firing Line. DRGO constantly evaluates and publicizes the illegitimacy of "gun control research". We were delighted to see Dan Gifford address this likewise.]
"We choose truth over facts!" When presidential candidate Joe Biden said that, he nailed the core of anti-Second Amendment activism.
Perhaps the most frustrating part of writing an article about Sec...
Two long-awaited reports were released to the public this week that could have helped further the dialog regarding guns in the Commonwealth of Virginia: The Virginia State Crime Commission report regarding Mass Killings and Gun Violence, and the Hillard Heintze Independent Review of the May 2019 Virginia Beach killings.
For those who haven't been following events in Virginia, the killings in a Virginia Beach City government building in May 2019 ostensibly led the Governor, at that ...

Depending on the level of culture and social progress, violence can take different forms in different societies. In the mid‑twentieth century, Stalin’s brutal communist government killed more Soviet citizens through privation, forced labor, and famine than soldiers fighting the Germans in World ...
[Ed: We are posting excerpts from this recently released study from Dr. Lott's Crime Prevention Research Center, first because everything at CRPC is important, and because Dr. Mauser is also a contributor to DRGO. The abstract is at, and the original can be downloaded from, this page on CRPC.org.
[This is an opportunity again to remind readers that supporting CRPC with donations is one of the most important things one can do for the RKBA. Only John Lott has given ...

A good approach to decrease gun violence and street crime should not involve penalizing law-abiding citizens and infringing on their Second Amendment rights while coddling criminals. And that is exactly what "Progressives" want to do. In fact, they have tried to exempt criminal gangs from the Red Flag laws they want to exact on the law-abiding citizen. It ...
