  • Obama Administration Releases Latest Executive Gun Control

    NRA-ILA ^ | 7/27/2016 | NRA-ILA
    On Friday, July 22, just as members of his party were gathering in Philadelphia to coronate Hillary Clinton as their presidential nominee, the Obama Administration once again released a sweeping gun control measure by executive fiat. This time the bad news came via the U.S. State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), which is primarily responsible for administering the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) and its implementing rules, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). The upshot is that DDTC is labeling commercial gunsmiths as “manufacturers” for performing relatively simple work such as threading a barrel or fabricating a...

    Lawful gun owners commit less than a fifth of all gun crimes, according to a novel analysis released this week by the University of Pittsburgh. In the study, led by epidemiologist Anthony Fabio of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public Health, researchers partnered with the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police to trace the origins of all 893 firearms that police recovered from crime scenes in the year 2008.They found that in approximately 8 out of 10 cases, the perpetrator was not a lawful gun owner but rather in illegal possession of a weapon that belonged to someone else. The researchers were...

    The first 57 seconds of James O’Keefe’s latest undercover video interview, of a Clinton delegate from California, confirms what many have long suspected: Hillary Clinton’s real goal of complete and total confiscation of all firearms from every American citizen is being hidden behind benign and persuasive phrases such as “common sense gun control” and “protect our families,” etc. It also reveals what happens when the “useful idiot” in the video learns that she has been exposed for what she is: a mouthpiece for the movement to disarm America and ultimately turn it into a totalitarian state. Most importantly it reveals...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- With mothers of police violence victims on the stage and anti-gun protesters in the streets, Hillary Clinton and Democrats are giving gun control and efforts to curb police violence a starring role at their summer convention. "They're too easily accessible to everyone, even children. You can go out on the street and get a gun," said Terrez McCleary of Philadelphia, who lost her 21-year-old daughter to gun violence in 2009 and was among a few hundred people held a rally against gun violence Tuesday in Philadelphia's Logan Square.

The suspect was hit multiple times and taken to the hospital in critical condition. While he was in surgery, detectives were out on the scene collecting evidence.

    Like a clock, every single time there is a media-hyped mass-shooting, Obama rotely returns to his podium and calls for gun bans and strict firearms regulations. It has almost become cliché. He, of course, WILL NOT speak to the motivations of the assailants, except one time, when Dillon Root -- a true racist who happened to be photographed in front of a Confederate Flag -- and in this example, Obama spoke quite a bit about incentive, when he was not focused on gun control.Most of the rest of the attacks were motivated by Islamics who were strictly interpreting the Quran,...

    When Hillary Clinton introduced her running mate to the nation, it was remarkable what topic got the crowd most excited: gun rights. Just the mention of the National Rifle Association Saturday prompted the room in Miami into a roar. At Brooklyn headquarters, aides smiled. This was, after all, the fight they wanted. Please, some thought, keep talking about guns. It was a fight that strategists saw as an upside: it calmed progressives’ furor over Kaine, seen in some circles as too moderate for a party still overcoming a passionate swoon with Bernie Sanders. And the subject of guns has a...

    Americans increasingly favor tougher gun laws by margins that have grown wider after a steady drumbeat of shootings in recent months, but they also are pessimistic that change will happen anytime soon, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. Nearly two-thirds of respondents expressed support for stricter laws, with majorities favoring nationwide bans on the sale of semi-automatic assault weapons such as the AR-15 and on the sale of high-capacity magazines holding 10 or more bullets.

Kaine is a Democrat Senator from Virginia who supports a ban on 15-round "clips" and "assault weapons," and who wants to enact a law to hold gun dealers liable for the misuse of firearms. During the June 26 airing of Meet the Press, Kaine told Chuck Todd that he voted for an "assault weapons" ban before and "would likely vote for it again." But he stressed that he believes "limitations on the size of magazines and ammunition clips" is the first step to take.

Everybody knows BB guns are scary looking and ought to be banned, but I thought I would try to shoot one without any preconceived notions. What I encountered changed me forever. I took a deep breath and determined to enter a Wal-Mart. A "greeter" met me with, "Howdy, welcome to Wal-Mart." I'm from the north. We don't say "Howdy". I sneer back at the microaggression and strain to hold back tears of rage. Barely controlling myself, I asked where I could find a BB gun....

    Californians who assemble their own weapons from parts they've bought or gathered will have to apply for a state-issued serial number under a law signed Friday by Gov. Jerry Brown. Brown signed Assembly Bill 857, which imposes a new mandate on anyone who buys components that can be made into a fully functional firearm. Those weapons are not currently traceable in the same way as buying a fully operating firearm. Democrats pushed through the bill last month as part of a sweeping package of proposals inspired by recent shootings. Several of those bills, including an effort to impose new rules...

    After the usual "assault rifles" are "weapon of war" used by "mass murderers" anti-AR agitprop, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey dropped this bombshell at The Boston Globe. The Massachusetts assault weapons ban mirrors the federal ban Congress allowed to expire in 2004. It prohibits the sale of specific weapons like the Colt AR-15 and AK-47 and explicitly bans "copies or duplicates" of those weapons. But gun manufacturers have taken it upon themselves to define what a "copy" or "duplicate" weapon is. They market "state compliant" copycat versions of their assault weapons to Massachusetts buyers. They sell guns without a flash...

She says, Dana: Here’s a message to every rapist, domestic abuser, violent criminal, thug and every other monster who preys upon women. At this point, you think the message would be, “Stop preying upon women.” But that’s not what Loesch says. Instead, she encourages the attackers to go on preying upon women.

    Just a question: Should the police killings by people inspired by (or belonging to) Black Lives Matter be used as a justification to deprive law-abiding Americans of their gun rights, as Republicans now appear to be supporting? Or should we conservatives instead tell everyone to take a deep breath and first have the administration show that they're willing to deal with Black Lives Matter as a terrorist group, as they should have been dealt with practically from the start? After that, then we can discuss what, if any steps, need to be taken to cut down on mass killings.

    Initial reports from Dallas described multiple snipers with AR-15s #weaponsofwar. The ongoing propaganda theme among the tabloids is that the AR-15 has become the weapon of choice for terrorists and mass shooters. It turns out that the terrorist in Dallas question used an antique, the SKS, (according to CBS News) but the facts never keep the press from a good propaganda theme. The SKS was designed in the 40’s in Russia. It is such a basic rifle that it is legal in California with no modification. With its fixed ten round magazine, the SKS is everything that the gun haters...

    This 22-shot repeating air rifle is an original Girardoni military pattern rifle of the type used on the Lewis & Clark Expedition. It is a butt reservoir piece with a bore size of .462 caliber. Similar pieces were supplied by Bartolomeo Girardoni to the Austrian army circa 1780. As originally issued, each Girardoni air rifle had three detachable air reservoirs, each requiring about 1,500 strokes of a pump to completely pressurize the reservoir. Once filled to operating pressure (about 800 psi) the air rifle could fire up to 70 shots before the reservoir required replacing. A metal tube on the...

    Waiting on a routine flight from Sacramento back to Santa Barbara, Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., discovered he was a terrorist. Or at least that’s what the FBI thought. McClintock was clearly more of a frequent flyer than radical extremist. But a classic case of mistaken identity, not ties to terrorism, landed him on the FBI’s no-fly list. A well-known state senator at the time, McClintock was left stranded at the Sacramento International Airport about 10 years ago. He couldn’t fly home under his own name.

    This July 4, let's not mince words: American independence in 1776 was a monumental mistake. We should be mourning the fact that we left the United Kingdom, not cheering it. Of course, evaluating the wisdom of the American Revolution means dealing with counterfactuals. As any historian would tell you, this is a messy business. We obviously can't be entirely sure how America would have fared if it had stayed in the British Empire longer, perhaps gaining independence a century or so later, along with Canada. But I'm reasonably confident a world in which the revolution never happened would be better...

    Once again the American people are being inundated with the fallacy that more restrictive gun control legislation is necessary to protect us and keep us safe. As usual, liberals are doing all they can to take our guns in order to protect us from us, or rather them from the Constitution. We hear that it’s “for the children,” a standard and thoroughly fraudulent claim by the left to divide the country on the 2nd Amendment. The left champion narratives about “assault rifles” and “weapons of war” to instill fear in those who know nothing of firearms. A week ago, congressional...
  • Physician Groups Representing 426,000 Doctors: Gun Violence MUST STOP

    Our organizations and many others have called on Congress to provide the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with funding for research into the causes and prevention of gun violence. In addition, we published a joint editorial on gun violence in the Annals of Internal Medicine. These unspeakable acts highlight gun violence as a grim and increasing public health epidemic that kills approximately 91 Americans every day. THIS MUST STOP.

    The FDA is stockpiling military weapons — and it’s not alone AMERICA’S GUN CULTURE has been a subject of intense interest and controversy for years, with concerns frequently raised about shadowy militias, paramilitary extremists, and unstable zealots in possession of alarming quantities of explosives and firearms. Amid the current din over assault weapons and body armor, consider one domestic organization’s fearsome arsenal of military-style equipment. In the space of eight years, the group amassed a stockpile of pistols, shotguns, and semiautomatic rifles, along with ample supplies of ammunition, liquid explosives, gun scopes, and suppressors. In its cache as well are...

    An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers. Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it. They complain the K-8 school of 430 kids is separating whites in classes where they’re made to feel awful about their “whiteness,” and all the “kids of color”...

    A constitutional rights foundation has field an ethics complaint against members of the Democratic Party who staged a sit-in on the floor of the U.S. House recently in protest or the Republican-led House’s unwillingness to consider gun-control legislation. The ethics complaint came from the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust shortly after a couple dozen Democrat members of Congress took over the House floor and literally sat down for a day. It complains the Democrats were using the opportunity to send fundraising emails from the floor, and they were using official House images. The Hill reported House ethics rules bar...

    If U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has his way the United Nations will be able to say if Americans are allowed to have their Second Amendment rights. He signed an anti-gun treaty with the United Nations that the U.S. Senate has already said it is against. The treaty Kerry signed without authorization from the Senate would create an un-Constitutional registry of all US gun buyers and would lead to the UN controlling American's gun rights. Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday signed a controversial U.N. treaty on arms regulation, riling U.S. lawmakers who vow the Senate will not...

    It’s not everyday you see an artist speaking positively about our Second Amendment rights. That’s what makes Smo’s new song “We the People” so refreshing. Smo, the country rapper famous for “Kickin’ It In Tennessee” and “American Made“, released a fiery new track for the 4th of July. The powerful song “We the People” bemoans the state of our country and the erosion of our rights and liberties. The track is a departure from his previous lighthearted songs that focused more on muddin’ than political revolution. It’s great to see an artist standing behind his beliefs, especially when so many...

    ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - Gun owners headed for Busch Stadium may soon no longer have to leave their firearms in the car. Starting in mid-July, Paddy O`s Bar next to Busch Stadium is going to allow a specially outfitted armored truck to use its overflow back parking lot to provide lawful gun owners a place to lock up any firearms they want to carry with them between the parking lots and the stadium. It is an idea born of tragedy. Following the shooting of Chris Sanna last year as he was leaving a Cardinals game, Justin Hulsey, a National Guard...
