A Primer On Constitutional Carry

Posted by in FFL123 FFL Blog

If you are a concealed carrier or just a gun owner, and you pay attention you’ve heard the term, Constitutional Carry. More and more states are adopting Constitutional Carry to replace traditional carry systems. There are currently 13 states that have adopted Constitutional Carry, and it’s gaining steam.

Constitutional Carry is both a new and old theme. It’s old since it was the initial form of carrying a firearm. At the time of our country’s founding, we had Constitutional carry. As society progressed more and more laws were introduced as an attempt to curb violence, and the unlicensed …

What’s a 12 gauge firearm?

When I say the words 12 gauge, you probably think shotgun. That makes since, because 12 gauge has long been a round dedicated to shotguns. Proclaiming that 12 gauge is only a round for shotguns is not an accurate statement. In the last few years we’ve seen something called 12 gauge firearms rise into popularity. This includes both Remington and Mossberg turning their flagship shotguns into firearms.

What do you mean Firearm?

I keep saying firearm as if it is its own classification of gun. In a way it is, but it’s basically a catch all …

Facebook’s Firearm Activist Chuck Rossi

Posted by in FFL123 FFL Blog

In January, 2016, Facebook’s executive leadership decided that it would no longer maintain its role simply as a social media platform. Instead, they decided that due to the lack of government intervention in regards to private firearms sales, it was their duty to do something about it. They released an announcement that posts promoting the sale of firearms or ammunition will be taken down. In the subsequent weeks, countless groups were annihilated by these new regulations.


It didn’t matter if the groups were actually facilitating private firearm sales or not. Simply displaying a firearm could be enough to …

Obtaining a Home-based FFL

Posted by in FFL123 FFL Blog

A federal firearm license (FFL) is the requirement needed for individuals to buy and sell firearms; the federal government issues this license. Though many people who are interested in obtaining an FFL would love to own and operate their own firearm shops, some do not have access to the capital or location to run a retail, brick and mortar firearm business. Truthfully, many who apply for an FFL are more interested in the benefits of the license rather than starting a business from scratch. Though the federal government requires some sort of justification for an FFL (helping others …

Leaked ATF White Paper

Posted by in FFL123 FFL Blog

On January 20th 2017, someone leaked a white paper intended for Ronald Turk, the COO of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosive (ATF). With most leaks in recent memory stemming from some negative activity on the part of the government, this leak is a breath of fresh air. The white paper in question is titled, “Federal Firearms Regulations: Options to Reduce or Modify Firearms Regulations.” Quite a change in tone from the previous eight years.


This white paper details proposals to change regulations for many different aspects relating to the firearm industry. As has been …

Blueprint to Building an AR-15

Posted by in FFL123 FFL Blog

AR15 is one of the most popular models of rifle on the market. According to Fox Business, over 30,000 AR’s were sold during a seven-day period at a single store. Though the reason for a purchase can range from a simple competition firearm to trying to beat gun bans, it is obviously that it is one of the most popular models. Due to its aesthetic design and its similarity to the military’s M4, those who are not familiar with firearms have allowed ignorance and fear to dictate their political agenda.

This has resulted in bans like …

President-elect Donald J. Trump signifies a massive shift in American culture. For the last decade, media outlets have been blatant with their bias towards left-leaning topics, while the hard workers have been marginalized and treated like deplorables, simply because we hold different values than their so-called, “tolerant,” way of life. One of the keys battlefields of this debate involves gun violence.

I know that this is going to sound like nails on a chalkboard, but the left isn’t trying to be evil, honestly they are just naive. They believe by …

Under the Gun Isn’t the Honest Documentary It Claims to Be

Released in May 2016, the Katie Couric-backed documentary Under the Gun claimed to be a neutral exploration of gun violence and gun safety in the U.S. However, the film was plagued with criticism from its first showing. Journalists proved that the documentary had deliberately been edited to make pro-gun advocates seem stupid. In an even bigger controversy, the film’s director actually admitted to breaking federal gun laws during filming.

What Happened Behind the Scenes of Under the Gun?

While filming Under the Gun, a producer who lived in Colorado traveled to Arizona …
