The Supreme Court has ruled that the 2nd amendment applies to individual citizens. But how does that affect you? How does it affect the lives of your and your children? Who is packing a pistol? Should you be carrying one too? What you should know before you step out your front door.
If you are anti-guns, or afraid of guns, or just don't like them and don't want them in your house, then this blog is for you. (It might just change your mind)

Magpul to give away 1,500 free 30 rnd magazines before law becomes effective
With just days to go before Colorado's strict new gun control law is set to take effect, gun accessories manufacturer Magpul says it plans to distribute 1,500 30-round magazines to gun owners for free.
The company, which has vowed to leave the state over the law, will take part in what organizers are calling a "Farewell to Arms Festival," on Saturday in Glendale, KDVR.com reports.
Magpul plans to give away magazines to the first 1,500 attendees and participants will also be able to buy up to three magazines for $10 each, according to the report.
Glendale Deputy City Manager Chuck Line told the station the event will be the "last opportunity" for residents to obtain standard capacity magazines for the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.
The magazines distributed at the event will be "grandfathered" in under the new law, event organizer Kelly Mahrer told KDVR.com.
