    At least 46 Oregonians have been ordered to surrender their guns under a new type of court order intended to stop suicides and mass shootings, law enforcement and court officials testified to state lawmakers Wednesday. Ten of the cases affect people in Multnomah County, where authorities have seized more than 50 guns from people found to pose a danger to themselves or others, Mike Reese, the county sheriff, told a joint meeting of the Senate and House judiciary committees. Washington County follows with at least eight cases, then Josephine County, with at least seven, according to documents submitted to the...

    A glassware company in Wisconsin has announced that each employee will get a brand new gun for Christmas, according to reports. Shot glass-maker BenShot of Appleton, Wisconsin, told the media that the gifts will also serve as a “team building” exercise, according to the Appleton Post-Crescent newspaper. Along with “team building,” BenShot owner Ben Wolfgram said he is also promoting self-protection.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Today, Caldwell Campaign spokeswoman Danielle Alvarez released the following statement: “Brenda Snipes continues to believe she is above the law. Our process server has tried to deliver our lawsuit both last night and again this morning, a period of more than 14 hours, but Snipes refuses to be served. Her disregard for Florida voters and the integrity of this election is illegal and shameful.” “How can we trust the integrity and accuracy of the electoral process in Broward County?” On Friday, November 9, the Matt Caldwell Campaign filed suit against the...

    We’ve all seen those lists of objects, names, places on tests attached along with the question of which one doesn’t belong or is out of place. Apply that test to the three Florida races affected by the vote fraud/incompetence in Broward and Palm Beach counties: Senator, Governor, and Agricultural Commissioner. Uh, agricultural commissioner? Why is anyone trying to steal that election, one lost under the radar among the seemingly more important national impact offices at stake. The answer is that capturing the Florida agricultural commissioner’s post would be a key victory in liberal and progressive push for gun control. As...

    The Root ^ | 2018-11-12 | Natalie Degraffinried
    The headline should have been: “Security Guard Apprehends Shooter and Saves Lives.” Instead, it’s another case of the police shooting and killing an innocent black man. Eyewitnesses say that at Manny’s Blue Room Bar in Robbins, [Cook County, Chicago] Ill., security told a group of intoxicated men they had to leave. One of the men returned armed, at which point shots were exchanged between them and armed security guards. One of the guards, Jemel Roberson, 26, managed to restrain one of the gunmen. From WGN9: “He had somebody on the ground with his knee in back with his gun in...

    The power of prayer can now be measured by caliber. While a Queens synagogue has hired a heat-packing, off-duty cop to protect its congregation on the Sabbath, Catholic churches have been taking live-shooter training and mulling armed ushers at Mass. “It’s really all about survival,” said Elie Meskin, president of The Utopia Jewish Center in Fresh Meadows. “We are living in a crazy era. It’s frightening and we have to protect ourselves.” Meskin, with the blessing of Rabbi Yonoson Hirtz, enlisted the officer a week after an anti-Semitic gunman burst into a baby-naming ceremony at Tree of Life synagogue in...

    When America's powerful pro-gun group told doctors to mind their own business, the response was swift, furious and viral. "Unless you've had someone's heart stop beating in your hands, you don't get to tell those of us who have what is and is not our 'lane'," trauma surgeon David Morris, 42, told the BBC. The National Rifle Association's tweet on Wednesday sparked anger. It came just hours before a gunman killed 12 people in a California bar. "Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane," the NRA tweeted.

    Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D – CA12) went out to smooth her path toward becoming Speaker of the House by seeking friendly territory and sitting down with Chris Cuomo on CNN Thursday night. When asked what her plans were if she took back the gavel, she had plenty to share, but one of her top priorities is supposedly new gun control legislation. While not specifically invoking the Thousands Oaks shooting, she made it clear that she was indirectly referencing it as she described the sort of legislation she had in mind. (Washington Times) House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said passing stricter...

    Badass James Woods has a message for Antifa activists that think it’s just fine to harass people that they disagree with politically. They’d better not try it with him. Yesterday, ClashDaily reported that Antifa thugs protested on Tucker Carlson’s lawn chanting, ‘Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!‘ and ‘Racist Scumbag, leave town‘, along with threats of a pipe bomb, posting his home adress online, and damaged his front door. James Woods retweeted a USA Today story about the incident with the message, ‘The attacker who would break down my door would do so during...

    Andrew Pollack said he’s sick to his stomach because Parkland school shooter, Nikolas Cruz is registered to vote. His beautiful daughter, Meadow Pollack would have been able to vote in this midterm election if she were still alive, said Andrew Pollack. Sheriff Israel allowed people into the jail this summer to register Nikolas Cruz and other animals to vote. Wonderful. POLLACK: I’m sick to my stomach. 18-1958 murdered 17 students & staff, including my daughter Meadow. Yet in July, Broward Sheriff @ScottJIsrael let people into the jail to get him & other animals registered to vote.The Despicable Democrats have no...

    CNBC ^ | Nov 2018 | John W. Schoen, Emma Newburger
    After heavy spending by both sides of the issue, gun control proponents picked up seats in House midterm races as gun rights advocates lost ground. Based on House voting records tracked by the National Rifle Association, more than two dozen gun rights proponents won't be returning to Congress. Meanwhile, House Democrats expanded the number of gun control advocates in their caucus. The new majority includes dozens of candidates who support gun control, including Lucy McBath in Georgia, whose 17-year-old son was fatally shot in 2012 and who made gun violence the centerpiece of her campaign. Sixty-one percent of voters who...

    Focus spurred by an incoming class of lawmakers with ‘F’ NRA ratings who campaigned on the issue ______________________________________________________________________ WASHINGTON—Democrats say they will pass the most aggressive gun-control legislation in decades when they become the House majority in January, plans they renewed this week in the aftermath of a mass killing in a California bar. Their efforts will be spurred by an incoming class of pro-gun-control lawmakers who scored big in Tuesday’s midterm elections, although any measure would likely meet stiff resistance in the GOP-controlled Senate. Democrats ousted at least 15 House Republicans with “A” National Rifle Association ratings, while the...

    It’s a mother’s instinct to protect her children, to nurture and care for them. Why would a self-ascribed “mom” go on a crusade to take away the right of mothers and fathers to protect their children? Why would this heroic mom want to restrict the family’s ability to protect the ones they love? Why would that mother want to take away protections for school kids, emboldening evil by creating and promoting more gun-free zones? Why would anyone get behind that same “mom” who worked for Monsanto, who promoted cancer-causing herbicide in children’s breakfast cereals? Who is this mom and what...

    THOUSAND OAKS, California — Six off-duty police officers were inside the Borderline Bar & Grill on Wednesday night when a gunman opened fire on those present. Twelve people were killed as the gunman, who has been identified as David Ian Long, attacked the bar using a smoke device and a .45-caliber handgun. Many of those present were young people, on hand for “college night.” Captain Garo Kuredjian, Media Relations Officer for the Ventura County Police Department, told Breitbart News on the scene that there had been three officers from the Oxnard Police Department and three from the Los Angeles Police...

    On 2 November 2018, the First Circuit Court of Appeals held the Second Amendment effectively does not apply outside the home.  From uscourts.gov: This case involves a constitutional challenge to the Massachusetts firearms licensing statute, as implemented in the communities of Boston and Brookline. All of the individual plaintiffs sought and received licenses from one of those two communities to carry firearms in public. The licenses, though, were restricted: they allowed the plaintiffs to carry firearms only in relation to certain specified activities but denied them the right to carry firearms more generally. The plaintiffs say that the Massachusetts firearms licensing...

    Police in the Democrat haven of Maryland shot and killed a man in his home on Monday while serving a “protective order” under a new law which allows them to seize people’s guns without due process. Since the new gun confiscation law went into effect on October 1st, police have carried out 114 such confiscation orders, which comes out to over 3 such seizures every day.

    We need to keep this in mind as our “representatives” try to push gun bans. I don’t care if 99% of people are in support of gun bans (which is far from the case), it is a violation of our constitutional rights, plain and simple. A constitutional republic protects the rights of the individual even when their ideas are very much in the minority. If I were the only person in America who believed in the 2nd amendment, I would still be within my rights to call upon it. You would all think I was insane and possibly celebrate if...

    On Friday afternoon, with just a few hours before sundown and the start of the Sabbath, David Parvey hurried to a South Philadelphia gun shop called Firing Line to get his new 9-millimeter pistol. To Parvey, who attends an Orthodox Jewish synagogue in Center City, it felt like the only rational response to the Oct. 27 mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, where 11 congregants were killed. "I legally have the right to at least be able to match evil with some sort of response, and in my mind I would be dumb not to," said...
