postheadericon Chinese Immigrants Line Up To Buy Guns In California, Taking Advantage Of Right Denied In Their Home Country

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA — In the outskirts of Los Angeles, gun stores have seen a surge in interest in gun ownership by Chinese immigrants. In China, a private citizen owning a gun legally is not possible. In the United States, however, we have gun ownership built into our basic Bill of Rights. For Chinese immigrants with a valid Green Card, it’s now an opportunity to exercise a right they would have never experienced otherwise.

The L.A. Times did an interesting piece exploring one gun shop’s experience with Chinese immigrants coming into the shop and surprised that there is a clear path to gun ownership.

“I just tell them don’t be scared. It’s legal here,” one gun shop owner said.

In California, there are basic requirements that must be fulfilled before purchasing a firearm. California is one of the few states targeting the ownership of ammunition, detachable magazines, and magazine capacity amongst many other issues but they still do have a path to gun ownership for its citizens.

Granted, starting January 1st, a lot of firearms will no longer be available on the market. Many Chinese firearm enthusiasts have taken the opportunity in the preceding months to buy up semi-automatic rifles and handguns that would now be considered impossible to purchase under new state restrictions.

“I have short guns, long guns, handguns, AR-15s, rifles. I bought one, then I just kept buying more,” one gun owner told the L.A. Times.

For many of the people who talking with the Los Angeles Times, they described their interest as mostly entertainment. A lot of them admitted to going to the ranges on the weekend. Retirees see it as a leisure activity that they find exhilarating and challenging.

We hope some of them have pursued the process in Los Angeles County to get their concealed carry permit.

Overall, the article definitely highlights the importance of one of the fundamental rights of living in the United States. We are allowed to own firearms. These firearms can be used for leisure and sport but, if need be, they can also be used to save our lives.

And, for those willing to move a state or two over to the right, you may just get a much better selection of firearms to choose from — and an easier process to carry those guns wherever you go.

postheadericon Nearly 20% Of The Country Is Now Permitless Carry, But Make Sure You’re Still Training

With Idaho passing permitless concealed carry recently, they became the 9th state in the Country to allow this. That’s a lot of people under the no-permit carry umbrella. But what about training? Should they still do it / seek it?

In reality, many states with permit requirements do not have any requirements for training. Some simply have you sit in a 4 or 8 hour class to receive your permit (after submitting your application and passing a background check as well, of course), but they do not have any requirement to show proficiency with firearms.

That’s where the individual comes into play. And IMHO, training is something that every concealed carrier should be serious about.

While I don’t feel it should be a requirement, I see it as a personal responsibility –as a responsible gun owner– to make sure that we’re proficient with our firearms. It’s common sense. If you make the decision to carry, you should damn well be able to hit a target with a high rate of success.

Not only target proficiency, but what about drawing from concealment and shooting under stress? There are courses and classes all over the country that teach just that, and most of them are worth the money and time to check out. Plus, you enjoy shooting, right? Then it should be fun anyway!

If you aren’t seeking out professional training, routine trips to the range should be on your todo list at the very least. Shooting is a perishable skill, and we will only get better and more proficient the more we practice.

What about you? Do you train on a regular basis? Let us know in the comments section below.
