Wells Fargo Sides With 2a Supporters, Takes Big Stand For Gun Rights

Our country has been in the midst of a brutal gun control debate ever since the Parkland, Florida high school mass shooting. We’ve seen companies pull their advertisements from Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” after host, Laura Ingraham, got into an online debate, via Twitter, with Parkland student turned anti-gun activist David Hogg.

Then there was Bank of America which cut their ties with the NRA after Hogg and his fellow activists pushed companies to go against the NRA. One bank has decided to go against the tide, however. Wells Fargo has decided not to put new financial restrictions of gun makers and sellers. They have stated that it is not a bank’s job to set the United States gun policies. read more

Open Carry Idiocy

by: the Common Constitutionalist

A potentially lethal weapon should not be synonymous with jewelry. One does not carry a weapon as a fashion statement.

Regular readers know that I, the Common Constitutionalist, “packs heat”, as a friend from the gym says. He’s former Marine force recon, so I let the slang go.

Readers also know I prefer open carry to concealed for reasons explained here.

In short, I open carry to make a statement. No, not a fashion statement, nor some highfalutin Constitutional reason as one might expect. I open carry for one reason. It’s a sign, a banner to any would-be attacker: “leave me the *%$# alone. That’s it. It’s no more complicated than that.

Being that I open carry, one would naturally conclude that I would be all for the group “Open Carry Texas” bringing their weapons into restaurants such as Chili’s, Chipotle and Sonic, which they did.
