  • Gun Background Checks: How the State Came To Decide Who Can and Cannot Buy a Firearm

    Prior to 1968, most adults in the United States could purchase a firearm without state interference. Guns were available in local retail stores, as well as mail-order catalogs, and as long as you hadn’t been convicted of a felony and you had the funds, there weren’t any questions asked. Things are different now. Depending on where in America you are and what type of gun you want to buy, there’s a good chance you’ll need to pass a NICS-mandated background check to complete your purchase. Although many people hold a strong opinion for and against gun background checks, they’ve proven...
  • Federal Judge Allows 21 Businesses to Sue Seattle Over Harms Caused by CHOP ( formerly known at CHAZ )

    Friday, a federal district court judge allowed a lawsuit brought by 21 businesses against the city of Seattle to proceed, despite the city's attempt to have it dismissed. The lawsuit accuses the city of harming local business owners by allowing the existence of Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP), a self-declared autonomous zone that was established and occupied by racial justice protestors from June 8 to July 1. The occupied zone blocked all car traffic, reducing the businesses' access to customers, vendors and revenue, the lawsuit says. The lawsuit further alleges that city police largely neglected the zone, allowing protesters and...

    Now the Admin Mods may Zot me or not, but if my words are heard by just one of my FRiends it will have been worthwhile. The stock and trade of the Democrat party is to convince each other that they are smarter than you, or I. This at the core of their beliefs: they are, in their minds, simply smarter. More enlightened. Naturally, they say, a baby should wince and scream, silently, in pain, as the scissors penetrate the neck. This is the celebration of womanhood for so many sad, single lesbians and their cats. Grades in school, of...
  • American Rock Star Ted Nugent Warns: ‘In Their Own Words, The Left Is Coming To Take Your Guns’

    In a recent interview with Breitbart News, the American rock star, Ted Nugent sounded off on Joe Biden’s gun control proposals and the power of Michigan hunters as a voting bloc. Biden’s idea to put AR-15s under the National Firearm Act of 1934, which means hunters could be obligated to register their AR-15s with federal authorities, submit their fingerprints and photos, and leave it for an FBI background check, and also they will be required to pay a $200 federal tax on guns they already own. When asked about Biden’s plan, Nugent stated: “Everybody who is paying attention knows that...

    She’s sometimes called the “conservative AOC.” Though it seems too few Republican candidates have learned anything from the success of President Trump’s bold, straight-talking, sometimes combative campaign style that his fans love, Colorado Congressional candidate Lauren Boebert most definitely has. And voters in Colorado’s Third Congressional District are loving it. When famous gunphobe Beto O’Rourke came to Aurora, Colorado last year and proclaimed he would take our guns, this small, pretty dark-haired woman with a Glock pistol in her hip holster stood up and told him, “I’m here to say hell no, you’re not! ” Boebert had driven several hours...

    A U.S. District Judge in San Diego who has issued rulings in two separate lawsuits challenging California’s strict gun control measures will take up another weapons-related case on Monday, sparking criticism from gun-control groups who pro-gun advocates have been given an unfair advantage. Judge Roger Benitez has twice ruled in favor of gun rights: in a case that challenged California’s ban of high-capacity magazines, and another case mandating background checks for buying ammunition, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. On Monday, he will oversee a case challenging several state laws regulating and defining assault weapons. He is overseeing another case challenging...

    Chances are you’ve already made up your mind about whom to vote for as we decide who’s going to be the next president of the United States. You probably are also aware there’s no way The Hartford Courant or most any other newspaper is going to endorse Republican Donald Trump for reelection. There are many reasons for that, and we’re not going to go into them in great detail here. If you are voting for Democrat Joe Biden, you know what they are. If you’re voting for Trump, you probably don’t care. But there is one issue that demands a...

    Michigan’s secretary of state wants voters to leave their guns at home this Election Day — or at least keep them 100 feet from any building containing polling places. On Friday, Jocelyn Benson issued guidance directed at local election officials clarifying that the open carry of guns on Election Day in, or close to, any voting locations — polling places, clerk’s offices and absent voter counting boards — is banned. “The open carry of a firearm is prohibited in a polling place, in any hallway used by voters to enter or exit, or within 100 feet of any entrance to...

    Lake County prosecutors said that the gun Kyle Rittenhouse used in the Kenosha shooting was bought, stored and used in Wisconsin. No charges will be filed against him in Lake County. Rittenhouse, 17, of Antioch, is facing charges in Wisconsin of first-degree intentional homicide, two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide and possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18. The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday that an extensive investigation was conducted by the Antioch Police Department. The investigation revealed the gun used in the Kenosha shooting was purchased,...

    In his questioning of Amy Coney Barrett regarding an Indiana case about a non-violent felon and his constitutional right to bear arms, Illinois senator Dick Durbin dropped numerous false claims about Chicago gun crimes. But he topped it all off with one of the most egregiously inane arguments used against the private ownership of guns: When that Second Amendment was written . . . we were talking about the likelihood that a person could purchase a muzzle-loading musket. Durbin went on to say that the logical conclusion of the “originalist” position on firearms should be that the Founders were referring...

    Breitbart ^ | October 13 2020 | JOEL B. POLLAK
    ABC News referred to Kyle Rittenhouse as an “alleged white supremacist” in a report last week, despite the fact that the 17-year-old has no known ties to white supremacism. ABC justified the label by citing former Vice President Joe Biden, who has suggested Rittenhouse is a white supremacist in a campaign ad — and who faces a possible defamation lawsuit as a result. The Daily Wire flagged the ABC report, which said: Rittenhouse, an alleged white supremacist accused of killing two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in the wake of an officer-involved shooting, appeared via Zoom for an Illinois hearing where...

    Accused conspirators charged in a plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer also discussed "taking" Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, an FBI agent testified at a court hearing Tuesday. During the hearing in Grand Rapids, Mich., to discuss the charges filed last week against members of a self-proclaimed militia accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan’s Democratic governor, FBI Special Agent Richard Trask revealed that months ago some of the suspects met in Dublin, Ohio, where Northam, also a Democrat, was discussed as a potential target.

    While speaking at his first post-COVID campaign rally, held in Sanford, Florida, President Trump warned that the Second Amendment will be gone if Democrat Joe Biden is elected to the White House. Early in his speech, Trump said, “Biden and the Democrat socialists will kill your jobs, dismantle your police departments, dissolve your borders…[and] confiscate your guns. No more Second Amendment.” Toward the conclusion of the rally, Trump pledged that he and his administration will defend gun rights during a second term. He said, “We will uphold the right to keep and bear arms, your Second Amendment.” The crowd responded...

    The studio's president of North American TV distribution has been let go after an incident involving a coworker. Lionsgate has fired one of its executives for allegedly having a gun on company premises. Sources say the studio's president of North American TV distribution Jared Goetz has been let go for violating company policy. The gun was discovered when Goetz — who was working in Lionsgate's Santa Monica offices in September — drove a coworker to lunch last month. In the car, he allegedly opened up about having his house broken into and being attacked in his car at a stoplight...

    Many young people are leaving the Church today because Christianity has become too judgmental and alienating for them, said lifelong Methodist and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Clinton made the comment while interviewing social justice advocate and Pastor William J. Barber II of Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro, North Carolina, last week on her “You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton” podcast. During the podcast, she argued that "black lives matter" is a “theological statement.” The Church in America, she suggested, needs to “take a hard look at itself and try to figure out how it can be a...

    Mitsch Bush backed Green New Deal, Medicare for All in failed 2018 run.. Colorado Democrat Diane Mitsch Bush has backtracked on her past support for Medicare for All and the Green New Deal in an effort to win over voters in a highly contested swing district. When Mitsch Bush ran for Colorado's Third Congressional District in 2018, she pushed for a Green New Deal and Medicare for All. Bush now condemns both policies, removing them from her current platform in order to campaign as a "pragmatic progressive" on the trail. ... The candidate employed similar rhetoric as she backed away...

    The economic shutdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic that already led Walt Disney to lay off nearly 30,000 employees who worked in the theme park business may soon affect one of the company’s other ventures: ESPN. The Worldwide Leader could lay off hundreds of employees in the coming weeks, sources told Front Office Sports. On the high end, 700 employees could be gone. On the low end, 300. While the majority of layoffs are expected to affect employees who work behind the camera, some on-air talents are also expected to be let go, especially if they are working with an...

    A Rasmussen survey released October 7, 2020, shows that 57 percent of Republicans and 39 percent of Democrats have a gun in their home. Rasmussen found that 37 percent of politically “unaffiliated” Americans have a gun in their home as well. Overall, 43 percent of American adults say someone in their home owns a gun, and slightly over 1/5 of those say “they or someone in their household has purchased a gun since the violent anti-police protests began.”

Parson said at a news conference on Wednesday that he "most certainly would" issue a pardon for the couple should they be convicted on counts of exhibiting a weapon and tampering with evidence brought against them over the June incident, according to The Associated Press. "We'll...
