    Megan Boone hopes to blacklist assault rifles from her NBC show.. As the debate over gun control rages on in the United States — particularly following the recent mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., which claimed the lives of 17 students and faculty members — the star of The Blacklist, who was raised in Florida, tweeted this to her followers on Friday: Megan Boone ✔ @MeganBoone Liz Keen will never carry an assault rifle again and I am deeply sorry for participating in glorifying them in the past. Yours, girl from Florida 11:46 AM - Feb...

    Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore took to Twitter on Friday and urged the media to compare the National Rifle Association (NRA) to the murderous terrorist group ISIS. The NRA is a terrorist organization, Moore wrote in a tweet that went viral. The media should speak of the NRA in the same way they do ISIS. Total ISIS-inspired deaths in US = 79, the Academy Award-winner wrote, adding, Thanks to the NRA & the politicians they buy, weve had 1.2 MILLION American gun deaths since John Lennon was shot dead in NYC #NRAKillsKids.

    Looking to capitalize on the public whirlwind demanding gun control measures, Ohio governor John Kasich took to Twitter to ask: If all the sudden you couldn't buy an AR-15, what would you lose? Would you feel your second amendment [sic] rights would be eroded? These are the things that have to be looked at and action has to happen. What I'd lose should be pretty obvious. I'd lose the ability to purchase an AR-15 to defend my family, my life, and my home because the federal government has prohibited me from doing so i.e., infringed upon my right to...

    The argument against arming teachers etc. - Teachers want to teach, not be a police officer. I dont have a gun in my home to be a police officer. I have a gun so that if or when the intruder finds my location, I can shoot at him! Would you rather a teacher have a gun while hiding in a room with students, or have the teacher unarmed? The key distinction for arming teachers is being defensive not offensive. Its that simple. The same reason buildings have sprinklers.

    Daily Caller News Foundation ^ | 02/22/2018 | Andrew Kerr
    Not all is as it seems at the organization behind a nationwide grassroots movement that seeks to make the National Rifle Association politically radioactive. Within 24 hours of last Wednesdays mass shooting at a Florida high school that left 17 dead, gun control activists had concocted No NRA Money, an organization behind a national grassroots pledge campaign that seeks to break the NRAs stranglehold that has thwarted meaningful progress on common sense gun policy. But No NRA Moneys claim to be a grassroots movement is questionable. Hidden within the HTML code running No NRA Moneys website is a link to...

    On the Internet, and in print, many people claim that pistols lack efficacy in defending against bear attacks. Here is an example that occurred on freerepublic.com: Actually, there are legions of people who have been badly mauled after using a handgun on a bear. Even some of the vaunted magnums. OK, give us a few examples. As you claim legions, it should not be too hard. I never received a response. I believe the claim was made in good faith. There has been much conjecture about the lack of efficacy of pistols for defense against bears. A little searching...

    New York Times ^ | February 24, 2018 | ERIC LIPTON and ALEXANDER BURNS
    WASHINGTON Few places have seen the National Rifle Association wield its might more effectively than Florida, where it has advanced a sweeping agenda that has made it easier to carry concealed weapons, given gun owners greater leeway to shoot in self-defense and even briefly barred doctors from asking patients about their firearms. To many of its opponents, that decades-long string of victories is proof that the N.R.A. has bought its political support. But the numbers tell a more complicated story: The organizations political action committee over the last decade has not made a single direct contribution to any current...

    Two airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines, announced Saturday that they are ending discounted-rate deals with the National Rifle Association, adding to a growing list of companies distancing themselves from the gun-rights lobby group as it fights a push for stricter gun control measures after a deadly high school shooting on Valentine's Day in Parkland, Fla. "Delta is reaching out to the NRA to let them know we will be ending their contract for discounted rates through our group travel program. We will be requesting that the NRA remove our information from their website," Delta tweeted early in the...

    Florida school shooting reignites the debate over background checks and mental health and guns. When a mass murder happens in our country, like so many Americans I wring my hands and look for answers for anything that will stop these monsters. I dont like to speak out at these times, because as Ecclesiastes correctly tells us there is a time to every purpose under the heaven, including a time to mourn. But then someone kicks me in the shin. This time it was CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, saying on CNNs New Day program Wednesday that the National Rifle...

A spokeswoman for @browardsheriff and @ScottJIsrael confirms they are investigating if BSO deputies waited while...

    On Wednesday evening, as the country picked through the wreckage of another mass shooting, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, flanked by a Republican governor with an A rating from the NRA, made a pitch for gun control. .... Israel began, While the people who are victims of mental health illnesses in this country are being treated, in the opinion of this sheriff, they should not be able to buy, surround themselves with, purchase or carry a handgun. Those two things dont mix. As mild as the proposal sounded, coming from a top law enforcement figure in one of the countrys...
