Just hours after the tragic shooting in a South Carolina church, President Barack Obama resumed his fanatical war on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners.
Gun-rights groups Thursday slammed President Barack Obama's call for a national reckoning on gun violence after the fatal shooting of nine people in a South Carolina church Wednesday night and his remark that "this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries."…

There has been quite a buzz recently about the State Department’s proposed rulemaking concerning the Arms Export Control Act -- and its impact on information concerning guns.
