    Washington Examiner ^ | Feb 25, 2017 | Salena Zito
    HARRISBURG, Pa. — Abby Ross never spent time around guns until a little more than a decade ago. "I grew up on Staten Island," she said. "Hunting or gun use was not part of our family traditions." Now she handles guns with ease for hunting, sport and training. And she's one of a growing number of women venturing into the world of guns, either as part of the outdoor experience or for self-defense. Women increasingly have become a profitable new target customer for gun-shop owners and firearms manufacturers.

    DNC Chair candidate Kieth Ellison was caught lying again regarding his stances on the second amendment. Partial Transcript Bash: Congressman, gun control. In 2014 you told Bill Maher that you wished the Democratic Party would come out against the Second Amendment. How do you reach out to Americans who support gun rights when you don’t support the Second Amendment? Ellison: First of all, let me tell you, I remember that show very well and that is not what I said, at all. What I talked about is my grandfather’s shotgun, the fact I am a turkey hunter, and I didn’t...
  • 'Nuts': Cruz tells Levin 4th Circuit decision to ban guns is insane By: Chris Pandolfo |

    Appearing at CPAC 2017, Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas (A, 97%) blasted a recent 4th Circuit Court decision upholding a Maryland “assault weapon” ban as “nuts.” Speaking with Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin, the Texas senator discussed a broad range of topics including term limits on members of Congress, the nomination of Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, and the rogue federal judiciary. Cruz criticized the Fourth Circuit court decision limiting the individual’s Second Amendment right to own a firearm. “The Fourth Circuit used to be the most conservative court in the country,” Cruz said. “The Fourth Circuit now, they’ve invented...

    The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned a lower-court decision that would have struck down a 10-day waiting period for certain firearm purchases. The lower-court decision would have allowed existing gun owners and people with concealed-weapons permits to immediately take possession of a lawfully purchased firearm. [Snip] 9th Circuit Judge Mary Schroeder ... said someone who already owns a hunting rifle may want to buy a larger-capacity weapon that will do more damage when fired into a crowd. "A 10-day cooling-off period would serve to discourage such conduct and would impose no serious burden on the core...

Jeff Sessions, was confirmed Wednesday night in a near-party-line vote in the Senate, finishing off a contentious process and leaving pro-gunners cheering, and gun control groups jeering. The Senate voted 52-47 to confirm Sessions. Democrat Joe Manchin III broke the party line and voted for Sessions, something he said he’d do back in November. No Republican voted against the senator from Alabama, and while he could have voted to confirm himself...

    A ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit finds that carrying a gun—even lawfully—is justification for police to treat you as suspect until evidence proves otherwise. This turns the normal approach to policing on its head, limiting Fourth Amendment protections normally in place for those considered innocent until proven guilty. In fact, Ammoland reported that Judge James A. Wynn opined, “Individuals who carry firearms—lawfully or unlawfully—pose a categorical risk of danger to others and police officers, in particular.” Wynn added, “Individuals who choose to carry firearms [therefore] forego certain constitutional protections afforded to individuals who elect...

This year, SHOT was the exact opposite: hopes for regulatory relief from President Donald Trump, tempered with regret at the end of—or at least a pause in—the remarkable sales run of the past eight years. For say what you will about Obama—and SHOT Show attendees often do—he drove firearms sales better than anyone...

    U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe, an Obama appointee, ordered a new ammunition ban for certain federal lands on Thursday–his last full day in office. The ban, which took effect immediately, eliminates the use of lead-based ammunition on federal lands like national parks and wildlife refuges, as well as any other land administered by the Fish and Wildlife Service. The ban is expected to have a major impact on much of the hunting that takes place on federal lands across the United States as lead-based ammunition is widely legal and used throughout the country. Ashe said the order...

Hudson's bill, which is supported by major pro-Second Amendment groups, would allow people with a state-issued concealed carry license or permit to conceal a handgun in any other state that allows concealed carry, as long as the permit holder follows the laws of that state. It also allows residents of Constitutional carry states the ability to carry in other states that recognize their own resident's right to concealed carry. Note: Hudson's legislation not...

Offensive guard Allen Barbre, a fellow hunter, says the guns are the Beretta model known as the Silver Pigeon, which retails for about $2,000. "This is an awesome gun.

Approximately 177,000 military veterans have been snared by this gun grab already as the VA has implemented a program which prohibits vets owning a firearm if they collect Social Security and have a "representative payee assigned to their accounts to help them manage their payments and receipts." By this method, the Obama federal bureaucracy will effectively implement just what the US Supreme Court decision...

    Sometimes someone inadvertently performs a public service by bringing an unbelievably stupid and dangerous idea to the surface, where it can be exposed for what it is. The New York Times can be credited — if that is the word — with performing this public service in a recent editorial against proposals to allow law-abiding citizens to carry concealed guns. They refer to what they call the National Rifle Association's "fantasy that citizens can stand up to gunmen by shooting it out." Nobody has suggested any such thing. Data collected over many years — but almost never seeing the light...

Lawmakers have four bills drafted that would make concealed carry reciprocity a federal law allowing gun owners licensed to carry in one state, to be able to carry in any other state. The Times calls it an effort to “dismantle state and local gun-control laws,” driving nationwide concealed carry laws “to the lowest common denominator” by allowing people to get carry permits in states with less...

    President-elect Donald Trump is expected to push to relax gun laws when he takes office, but significant changes in the firearms industry began as soon as he was elected – and some put the law of unintended consequences squarely in the cross hairs. For instance, while Trump’s unapologetic pro-Second Amendment stance may be good for gun owners, it has already dealt a blow to manufacturers, who enjoyed record sales throughout President Obama’s eight years in office. Stocks in companies like Smith & Wesson and Sturm, Ruger & Co. plunged on Nov. 9, and experts say it is because Trump’s election...

That is no longer the case, at least regarding his stance on gun rights and the Second Amendment, after Trump released his official policy position on his campaign website. “The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period,” the position paper began. Trump went on to explain that the right to keep and bear arms is a right that pre-exists...

From providencejournal.com: The law reads that a city or town's licensing authority "shall" issue a license when it appears that the applicant has a good reason to fear an injury to his or her person or property or has "any other proper reason" to carry.

    It seems obvious: Restrict gun access and people will be safer. Indeed, in all four presidential debates, Hillary Clinton and running mate Tim Kaine have pushed for background checks on private transfers of guns. Clinton says this will “keep guns out of the hands of those who will do harm.” After each mass public shooting, President Obama has made a similar case for background checks on private transfers of guns. But theory and practice don’t always match. Too often, gun bans or background checks don’t stop criminals and disarm law-abiding citizens, particularly poor minorities. This only makes life easier for...

    First, please excuse me. I never post a few-line vanity; if I post my own material, it is usually a well-thought-out and supported editorial. Forgive me, because I think this thought is important. Indulge me, because it is my birthday.I have always viewed this election in terms of how it would effect my Second Amendment Rights. But after seeing the sheer and brazen corruption in which Comey quashed any charges against Clinton -- having reviewed more than a half a million emails in less than three days -- it is obvious that if Hillary Clinton is elected President, we have...

    The Brooklyn Connection By Julia Gorin Albanian-American roofer Florin Krasniqi has been living in Brooklyn and smuggling American guns into Kosovo to arm the Kosovo Liberation Army--this time for war against its erstwhile saviors, NATO and the UN....Realizing Albanians could lose the good will of Americans once they see the documentary, Krasniqi went on "60 Minutes" last Sunday, to paint himself as a concerned citizen promoting anti-gun legislation...
  • Hillary: Impose Gun Control by Judicial Fiat

    American Thinker ^ | November 2, 2016 | David T. Hardy
    It’s no news that Hillary Clinton is against guns (except those in the hands of people who protect the high and mighty) and enthusiastically in favor of restricting gun owners. When it gets down to specifics, her position does become vague, with some exceptions. One of those exceptions stands out only because of its obscurity. Hillary really, really, wants to repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. The PLCAA essentially protects gun manufacturers and gun dealers from being sued unless, well, they have done something wrong. It’s a perfectly simple standard that would apply in any other field...
  • Obama Has Given America A Government Of Unchecked Power While Taking Away Liberty

    Barack Obama said he wanted to transform America and in many ways he has succeeded. The problem is that his transformation has done enormous and perhaps irreparable damage to the nation by demolishing the people’s confidence that our laws will be impartially enforced. Instead of, as the Constitution requires of the president, taking care that the laws be faithfully executed, Obama and his minions have operated under a completely different concept – that the laws will be enforced (or not) with the objective of maintaining the incumbent party in power. If you doubt that, I recommend reading Liberty’s Nemesis, published...

    The Battle of Athens TN, August 1-2, 1946 On 1-2 August 1946, some Americans, brutalized by their county government, used armed force to overturn it. These Americans wanted honest, open elections. For years they had asked for state or Federal election monitors to prevent vote fraud -- forged ballots, secret ballot counts, and intimidation by armed sheriff's deputies -- by the local political boss. They got no help. These Americans' absolute refusal to knuckle-under had been hardened by service in World War II. Having fought to free other countries from murderous regimes, they rejected vicious abuse by their county government....

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The fewest Americans in 20 years favor making it illegal to manufacture, sell or possess semi-automatic guns known as assault rifles. Thirty-six percent now want an assault weapons ban, down from 44% in 2012 and 57% when Gallup first asked the question in 1996.

    With Election Day on the horizon, a number of gun control groups made it clear this week their candidate of choice to fill the White House is former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Clinton, who has a broad package of gun control initiatives as a key part of her platform to curb what she terms as an epidemic of gun violence, already has the backing of the Brady Campaign, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety and former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords’ Americans for Responsible Solutions. Joining that list Tuesday was a coalition of 16 small groups...

    I guarantee you Hillary Clinton will continue Obama's legacy All rights come from God. We are born with them. They are unalienable, which means no power on Earth can take them away. They stay with us for life. All rights are individual, and they are absolute within the context of the right. If rights are not absolute, then they aren’t a right at all. If one aspect of a right can be shed, then so can the whole right. If a right can be “interpreted,” then it can be interpreted out of existence. One right that is universal and a...
