Michigan Auto Repair Shop: Yes to Gun Owners, No to Gays

“Brian Klawiter owns Dieseltec shop in Grandville [MI],” cnn.com reports. “In a statement this week on his company Facebook page, he urged gun owners to visit his business, promising a discount for those who do. ‘Enough is enough,’ his post said, declaring that the voices of conservative Americans are getting drowned out. He pledged to operate his business the way he sees fit. ‘I am a Christian. My company will be run in a way that reflects that. Dishonesty, thievery, immoral behavior, etc. will not be welcomed,’ he said. ‘I would not hesitate to refuse service to an openly gay…

Piss Off the Hollywood Anti-Gun Left: Fund Billy Johnson’s Kickstarter Project

As we noted earlier, Billy Johnson is raising money to produce a film, “Protecting Liberty,” via a Kickstarter campaign. Now, thanks to wikileaks.org’s release of emails (links after the jump) between between Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety and Sony Pictures Entertainment’s head honcho among other Hollywood heavyweights, it’s clear that a project like the one Billy is trying to complete is needed now more than ever. If you have some spare change rattling around in your couch or found a $20 bill in the dryer last week, you might want to send it his way. How many chances do…

Vermont, a “constitutional carry” state, currently has few restrictions on guns, but that could change soon. An important gun control bill is close to passing the Vermont legislature. The state’s house gave initial approval for the passage of one bill that has already passed the senate. The House voted 79-60 in favor of the bill (SB 31) and a final vote is expected today. As TTAG mentioned before, this bill would allow the prosecution of some convicted criminals for firearm possession and require the “dangerously mentally ill” to be added to the federal background check system, therefore denying them firearms . ….

Texas House to Consider Open Carry

Some of you might remember seeing a post here a few minutes ago proclaiming that open carry has passed in Texas. Well… it hasn’t. Not yet, at least. Looks like Robert got a little trigger happy and jumped the gun, so to speak. Had a misfire. Missed the target. I could keep going, but I’ll cut to the chase. Last week, some legal wrangling knocked the open carry bill in Texas off the calendar. That means it had to go back to the Calendars Committee to be re-scheduled, and there was some concern that it would die there. Now, the…

Sen. Grassley to AG Eric Holder: Why Are So Many Veterans on the NICS Gun Ban List?

Press release: WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is requesting an explanation for why nearly all of the names on the Justice Department’s gun ban list in the “mental defective” category belong to veterans or their dependents . . . “It’s disturbing to think that the men and women who dedicated themselves to defending our freedom and values face undue threats to their fundamental Second Amendment rights from the very agency established to serve them. A veteran or dependent shouldn’t lose their Constitutional rights because they need help with bookkeeping,” Grassley said. All…
