    It is apparent that this case was filed to pursue the political purposes of the Brady Center, and, given the failure to present any cognizable legal claim, bringing these defendants into the Colorado court where the prosecution of James Holmes was proceeding appears to be more of an opportunity to propagandize the public and stigmatize the defendants than to obtain a court order which counsel should have known would be outside the authority of this court.

    Finally, the celebrities of America have come together to put aside their impulse to be politically correct and to call out gunmen and Gunmanism. To be specific, it's radical, extreme Gunmanism that we are talking about here. Most gunmen are peaceful, law abiding people who just want to eat sandwiches and raise their kids.

    Lame duck President Barack Obama has issued a new call for gun control in an email sent to subscribers of his mailing list. Here is the email: Friend — We’ve had to come together as a nation too many times to mourn after horrific acts of gun violence. And right now, it’s not good enough simply to show sympathy. We need to acknowledge that there’s more work to do — that these tragedies have become far too commonplace. This is a conversation that folks need to have, and organizers like you are the ones who will move it forward.

    Barack Obama and his party have made no secret of their desire to enact strict gun control legislation in America. Their efforts have been rebuffed so far by the American people and the Republican legislature. But that hasn’t stopped them from plotting any number of ways to try to restrict gun ownership through regulatory, procedural, or executive actions. Those efforts are bound to continue, especially now that the United States Supreme Court appears to be open to reaching decisions based on political considerations and public pressure, as opposed to basing their decisions solely on the U.S. Constitution.

    There are people who have never fired a shot in their life who do not hesitate to declare how many bullets should be the limit to put into a firearm’s clip or magazine. Some say ten bullets but New York state’s recent gun control law specifies seven. Virtually all gun control advocates say that 30 bullets in a magazine is far too many for self-defense or hunting — even if they have never gone hunting and never had to defend themselves with a gun. This uninformed and self-righteous dogmatism is what makes the gun control debate so futile and so...

The 3-judge panel of the 9th Circuit ruled against the requirement in February 2014, saying, “The right to bear arms includes the right to carry an operable arm outside the home for the lawful purpose of self-defense.” Moreover, they ruled that because the right extends outside the home, there is no need to show “good cause”– the right to do so is cause enough.

    Gun control is something that did not start recently although it has become stricter. When did gun control even start in the United States? Aside from when America started as a country and the British trying to disarm us, we go back to when we passed laws in our own states to control certain weapons distribution. We are going back to the 1920s. The Federal government started its gun control policies in response to the waging wars of the gangs in 1934 with the National Firearms Act of 1934. This enacted a long series of measures trying to stop the...

    Father Michael Pfleger was heckled on Thursday by pro-gun advocates while he gave a message at the St. George Catholic Church in Tinley Park, Illinois. Pro-gun hecklers booed Pfleger and claimed he was violating their rights, noted WGN-TV (video below). According to CBS Chicago, the Illinois State Rifle Association urged its members to show up at what it called a gun control recruitment event at the church. "I'm neither a gun-grabber, nor am I against the Second Amendment. I want people who own guns to be held responsible for the guns that they own," Pfleger stated in the church to...

Click to the next page to find out. …when that time finally comes, and the inevitable euthanasia of Hillary Clinton’s political ambitions finally materializes, it won’t be Sanders who benefits. Nor will the other Lilliputian Democrat hopefuls, like Jim Webb, Lincoln Chaffee or Martin O’Malley. It’s going to be Mike Bloomberg.

    Over that past few days we’ve had two fascinating articles come out on the falsehoods… LIES.. perpetrated by the nation’s socialist left in the furtherance of their agenda. Both of these recent articles highlight in stark relief the mendacious nature of the Collectivists on the left.

Under Chairman Bishop’s legislation, all lawful purposes – including self-defense – would have to be given due consideration and respect in the administration of federal law. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in District of Columbia v. Heller that the core purpose of the...
