Constitutional Carry in Utah

It was bound to happen sooner rather than later. HB76 has been introduced this legislative session and I’m not really sure if it’s going to pass.

Utah law already allows unlicensed open carry and concealed carry permits are easy to get. Of course there is some pant wetting going on by those who don’t understand Utah’s gun laws. “But this means criminals could legally carry concealed handguns!” Um, no, not if they can’t legally own a firearm. It would still be illegal for them.

House Minority Leader Jennifer Seelig frames her opposition as not wanting to “take any tools away from law enforcement,” referring to the daily background check that is run on all concealed carry permit holders. This is certainly a valid argument.

Even if the bill passes, I would presume that a majority of those who would carry a concealed weapon would still get the Utah permit because of Utah’s reciprocity/recognition with 35 other states.

Safe vs. Dangerous

I’m shamelessly stealing this:



Remember Your History Or Be Doomed To Repeat It

It all begins with a dictator taking away your tools if self defense.


The definition of a dictator

When one person begins to curb your specific, enumerated rights, isn’t that person a dictator?

“The president is going to act. Executive orders, executive action, can be taken,” Biden told reporters before meetings with groups representing survivors of mass shootings. “We haven’t decided what this is yet, but we’re compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and all the rest of the Cabinet members.”

A storm is brewing…


New Hornady Critical Duty Round

I’m a fan of Hornady’s Critical Defense round and carry them in my Sig P238. I have wanted to carry them in my 45, but have not the .45 ACP Critical Defense round uses a 185gr bullet. The Firearm Blog reports that Hornady has now released a .45 caliber Critial Duty round with a 220gr bullet, which is closer to the traditional 230gr.

According to Hornady, the differences between their Critical Defense line and their Critical Duty line are:

Critical DEFENSE® = Personal Protection/Concealed Carry

Critical DEFENSE® handgun ammunition was developed to provide the best performance for DEFENSIVE or PERSONAL PROTECTION SITUATIONS and is the ultimate choice for any short barreled, concealed carry style firearm.

Critical DUTY® = Tactical

Critical DUTY® handgun ammunition is built to meet the needs and requirements of LAW ENFORCEMENT and TACTICAL PROFESSIONALS, as well as those law abiding citizens who prefer a full-size handgun for their personal protection and demand superior barrier penetration and subsequent terminal performance.*

Via Breda comes this video which will make you smile –

It’s unfortunate that some on the Left would rather see this girl injured or traumatized rather than able to defend herself.  Good job Alyssa!
