Why Do You Own Or Carry A Gun?


We want to thank each and every one of you who took the time to answer our question in the last newsletter regarding your beliefs on the Second Amendment and why you carry a firearm. We received some excellent responses, several we�d like to showcase for everyone to see.

Jim T. wrote: �I carry because it's my God given right and personal responsibility to protect my family should the need ever arise.�

Sunny C. wrote: �I carry first of all for my protection and the protection of those around me. I was mugged in downtown Austin in 1995 and it's not fun. Had I been carrying then things may have turned out differently.�

Thomas N. used the always popular argument: �Because a cop is too heavy to carry around.�

And while some members focused on personal protection or defense of their families, others like Laura O. told us: �It is my constitutional right and if we do not use the rights we have they can be more easily taken from us.�

Member Sound-Off: Do You Support Campus Carry?

Now it�s time for this weeks "Member Sound-Off." This week we�d like to ask you about a subject that we�ve seen gun owners divided on. We want to hear your feedback.

Tell us: Do you support allowing students and/or faculty to carry on college campuses if they have a CHP?

The more responses and feedback we receive, the better we will be able to serve you, our member base, in the coming months and years. This will help us correctly distribute resources to effectively fight for our liberty. We look forward to your responses.

ATF Moves Proposed Date Again

Christmas came early this year for people who are thinking about buying NFA regulated items! The ATF has moved the date for the proposed rule that could affect your ability to own a suppressor, short-barreled weapon, machine gun, or AOW.

As some may recall, in September of 2013 the ATF proposed a rule that would require all �responsible persons� to receive Chief Law Enforcement Officer authorization in order to purchase NFA regulated items. If enacted �as-is,� this rule could potentially put a halt to the purchase of all NFA regulated items (i.e., suppressors), for all practical purposes. After fierce opposition during the public commenting period (click here to read U.S. Law Shield�s response to Proposed Rule 41p), the ATF set an initial target date of June 2014 to publish the final rule, but had to delay until January 2015.

U.S. Law Shield is glad to report that the ATF has pushed the final rule�s target publication date to May 2015. In the meantime, the law will continue to operate in the exact same fashion. Once the ATF publishes their final rule, it will come into effect at earliest 30 days from publication (or later, if the ATF chooses an effective date after that). Keep in mind, this is still merely a target date; the rule could be published early, or they could continue to delay its publication. U.S. Law Shield will keep its members informed of this situation and of any changes in the law that impact their firearm rights.

Before any new rule goes into effect, make sure you check out our NFA Trust Program here.
