  • Democrat Doug Jones: Second Amendment Has ‘Limitations,’ Wants ‘Smart’ Gun Laws

    Doug Jones, the Democrat running for Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat, says he loves to hunt but the Second Amendment has “limitations.” He believes that every right enumerated in the Bill of Rights is limited, and the Second Amendment is no exception. According to the Alabama Political Reporter, Jones described himself as “a Second Amendment guy,” but stressed that some gun control is necessary. He said, “We’ve got limitations on all constitutional amendments in one form or another.” This position is contrary to the clear language of the amendment, which states that the right to keep and bear arms “shall not...
  • Oh, Joe: Former Vice President Says NRA Member Who Engaged Texas Shooter Shouldn't Have Had An AR-15

    Well, Joe Biden said something stupid—again. I know diarrhea of the mouth is the former vice president’s lifelong issue, but this time it was rather unsettling, especially after such a tragic event. Devin Kelley murdered 26 people and wounded 20 more when he opened fire on a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on November 5. He was by all accounts disturbed. An Air Force veteran, he was court martialed in 2012 for domestic abuse. He was convicted, sentenced to a year in jail, and then given a bad-conduct discharged in 2014. He was able to obtain weapons because the Air...
  • California’s Dianne Feinstein Tries Again to Reinstate Assault Weapons Ban

    Times of San Diego ^ | 11/18/17 | Chris Jennewein
    Sen. Dianne Feinstein has re-introduced a bill to ban the sale of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. Feinstein was joined by 22 other Democratic Senators in the wake of recent mass shootings in Texas and Nevada. The bill was introduced just days before the most recent mass shooting, which occurred Tuesday in Northern California. “We’re introducing an updated assault weapons ban for one reason: so that after every mass shooting with a military-style assault weapon, the American people will know that a tool to reduce these massacres is sitting in the Senate, ready for debate and a vote,”...

    Guns in the News ^ | 11-14-2017 | Tim Brown
    It was several years ago, during the usurper's time in the White House, that I reported on where the abundance of gun violence took place, including mass shootings.In another report, it was discovered that the majority of gun violence takes place in large metropolitan areas, and much of that happens in poor neighborhoods.Additionally, more than 90% of mass shootings have occurred in government-regulated, but unconstitutional, "gun free zones."All of these so-called "gun control" measures are only aiding to promote full on gun confiscation and gun prohibition, except for guns being in the hands of government. Most recently, ABC News has...
  • Trump's DOD Nominee: It Is 'Insane' That 'a Civilian Can Go Out and Buy an AR-15'

    PJ Media ^ | 11-09-2017 | Michael van der Galien
    President Trump's nominee for Assistant Secretary of Defense For Health Affairs, Dr. Dean Winslow, told the Senate Committee on Armed Services on Tuesday that it is "insane" that American citizens can "go out and buy" an AR-15 rifle. He admitted that this statement could get him "in trouble with other members of the committee," but he felt it necessary to speak out against the Second Amendment nonetheless. Winslow gave this opinion after being asked about the Air Force's failure to report that mass killer Devin Kelley had been court-martialed for domestic abuse, which bans him from possessing a firearm. Rather...

    How do you stop the real war on women? With a Glock 43 and an open carry permit. Josh Williams, 39, is another good guy with a gun, a hero who stopped the alleged rape of a woman in September. Williams, a resident of Austin, Texas, likes to go running along the Hike-and-Bike trail at least once a week. In the early mornings, he carries a cell phone, a flashlight, and his firearm. In an interview with KVUE News, Williams explained that he carries his firearm while jogging in the early morning: "It's dark, and I don't know what's out...

    A video posted by USA Today was criticized by firearm aficionados for its portrayal of the Ruger AR-556, the rifle that was reportedly used by a gunman to kill 26 people at a church in rural Texas. In the brief video, USA Today identified components of the rifle and attachments that the assault-style rifle can be equipped with, some of them rare and ineffectual, including what appeared to be a belt-driven chainsaw.

    MSNBC’s Joy Reid told her fans Monday that the National Rifle Association has machinations of building an America where “packs of warlords” can kill at will. The host of “AM Joy” reacted to Sunday’s church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, by claiming NRA members — over 5 million Second Amendment advocates — seek the creation of “private armies” operating outside the rule of law. The comments came one day after 26-year-old Devin Kelley killed 26 churchgoers and wounded another 20 in a rampage reportedly linked to a domestic dispute. “Americans are living like packs of warlords, with heavily armed people...
  • How Did The Texas Shooter Pass A Background Check After A Domestic Violence Conviction?

    Townhall ^ | November 6, 2017 | Matt Vespa
    ... given that Kelley was given a "bad-conduct discharge" from the U.S. Air Force in 2014, which is not the same as a dishonorable discharge, contrary to previous reports, and spent a year in jail after beating his wife and child in 2012--how did he obtain firearms? Yes, a dishonorable discharge would also make him a prohibited person, but either way, Kelley is a banned person; he a convicted domestic abuser. Somehow Kelley was able to pass a background check and obtain a rifle at Academy Sports & Outdoors in April of 2016? Yet, I’m sure the search for answers...

Unless we’re just talking about pure evil, because it could be that too. Either way, It just doesn’t help to call it something that it is not.And try to fix something that isn’t the problem.

    It will soon have been three weeks since the Las Vegas shooting massacre, but already the news cycle has moved on. All of the other issues that have been in the headlines—male sexual predation, Donald Trump’s (un)fitness for the presidency, the respective futures of the Iran nuclear agreement and the Affordable Care Act, and on and on—are undeniably important. On the other hand, we know in our aching hearts that such carnage will happen again. At this point, it still counts as news when a man kills three people and wounds two others in Maryland, but such numbers do not...
  • Sandy Hook Families' Suit Against Gun Maker Goes to Supreme Court(state) on Nov. 14

    The state Supreme Court will hear arguments on Nov. 14 in the closely watched case involving the families of victims of the Sandy Hook massacre who are suing the gun manufacturer that makes the weapon used in the shootings. The families of 10 victims filed the lawsuit in January 2015, seeking to hold the Remington Outdoor Co. liable for the massacre because it marketed a gun to the public it knew was made for military use. Adam Lanza shot his way into the Newtown school on Dec. 14, 2012, and fired 154 bullets in about five minutes from a Bushmaster...

    Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, and Sheryl Crow are among a number of celebrities urging Americans to “reject the NRA” and concealed carry of firearms in the wake of the shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert this month. Laura Dern, Bill Hader, and Adam Scott are also taking part in the anti-gun campaign, as is noted gun control advocate Julianne Moore. The celebrities are part of the Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety PSA against the NRA specifically, and against gun rights generally. In typical Everytown fashion, the PSA does not present real solutions to the attack in Vegas–after...

    On Real Time on HBO, liberal host Bill Maher was again hitting the issue of race from the left as he promoted claims that the purpose of the Second Amendment was to help keep the slave population under control, rather than to give the population a right to self-defense. Additionally, he played the game of finding racial double standards in the treatment of whites and nonwhites with regard to guns and mass shootings. And, for his part, MSNBC Republican Steve Schmidt ridiculously claimed that "It is harder to buy cough medicine than it is to buy an AK-47 or 50...

    American ^ | October 9, 2017 | Spike Hampson
    Whether or not bump stocks end up banned is a trivial matter. The war over the Second Amendment will not hinge on the outcome of this particular battle. Both sides know this; the importance of the issue is entirely psychological. For progressives, a win would be a move in the right direction, evidence that conservatives are vulnerable. It would be comparable to the Doolittle Raid against the Japanese homeland in 1942 – a strike of no great strategic import but invaluable as a way to shift national confidence from the Japanese to the American side. For conservatives, there is little...

    Nancy, Nancy, Nancy - you’ve got to get those senior moments under control. You know, those times you let  your guard down and accidentally tell the truth: “They’re going to say, ‘You give them bump stock, it’s going to be a slippery slope.’ I certainly hope so.” It’s the oldest trick in the book and still, the disloyal opposition falls for it every. single. time. So if we’re going to have to deal with the camel’s nose in the tent approach to gun regulation, allow me to suggest a few pieces of gun legislation that will speed up the long, downward...

The rest of the show centers around the gun grabbing debate, RINOs and Democrap corruption. Enjoy.
  • Just Hours After Las Vegas Shooting, Man Arrested with Cache of Automatic Weapons & Ammo in His Car

    10/08/2017 7:45:48 AM PDT · by TangoLimaSierra · 45 replies ^ | October 7, 2017 | Tim Brown
    Some have said that 43-year-old Scott Edmisten, who was arrested hours after the Las Vegas shooting for doing 55mph in a 30mph zone at 4am on Monday and found with a cache of weapons and ammo including fully automatic rifles, was possibly Stephen Paddock's accomplice. So, far it seems unlikely. First, for the record, I have no problem with people having weapons of all sorts and under the Second Amendment, that should be protected. With that said, it is curious that all of this was in his car, not his home, at 4am in the morning.
