    AUSTIN — Cody Wilson, the Austin man who owns controversial 3D-printed gun company Defense Distributed, has been accused of sexually assaulting a child, an affidavit obtained by KVUE reveals. During a forensic interview with the Center with Child Protection on Aug. 27, the victim told counselors she met Wilson through the website, SugarDaddyMeet.com. Court documents show Wilson used the profile, "Sanjuro," and told the victim that he was a "big deal." During the conversation, he also identified himself as "Cody Wilson." Police said the two exchanged cell phone numbers and continued their conversations using the Apple iMessage service on her...

    American denim giant Levi Strauss & Co. announced Tuesday that it is launching a series of new initiatives to benefit groups working to prevent gun violence. Levi Strauss’ CEO and President Chip Bergh wrote it Fortune on Tuesday that the company “simply cannot stand by silently when it comes to issues that threaten the very fabric of the communities where we live and work.” “You may wonder why a company that doesn’t manufacture or sell guns is wading into this issue, but for us, it’s simple,” Bergh wrote. “Americans shouldn’t have to live in fear of gun violence. It’s an...
  • Obama repeatedly stutters, talks about himself 79 times while campaigning for candidates

    There were times during a Thursday rally Barack Obama couldn’t help but talk about himself, even though he was supposed to be talking about other people. There were other times he could barely talk at all. During the Cleveland rally for Rich Cordray and Betty Sutton, Obama repeatedly talked about himself, despite the candidates sitting behind him. Several times, he stuttered as he attempted to attack President Trump and the success of recent Republican initiatives.

    Lots of folks like to throw around the term “fake news” to describe stories they do not like or stories that are, well, fake. I prefer the term “agenda journalism” because it does not make a judgment on the veracity of the reporting, and it can be easier to spot than the fake stuff that always has an agenda. The Huffington Post ran such a piece last week called “Gun owners more likely to vote than non-gun owners.” Do not accuse me of journalism profiling, because I believe even the editors of the HuffPost would eagerly agree they have a...

    Well, it’s another day, and another anti-gun study that’s shoddy . It comes with additional controversy since its author will not release his data or even open himself to questions about his work. In August, the Crime Prevention Research Center’s John Lott took to task an anti-gun study by Adam Lankford, who suggests the U.S. is the mecca for mass shootings, being the epicenter for 31 percent of them ; all of this thanks to our rates of gun ownership. Again, it’s not the criminal’s fault; it’s all about the gun, which apparently has magic powers that forces people...
  • WHAT I SAW GAVE ME A LITTLE HOPE

    I came off the Metro in Washington, DC two days ago and as I was making my way to the escalator to catch my commuter bus, I saw something that gave me a little bit of hope. Ahead of me was a black female, short, in her 20's, and toting a backpack. She had a Velcro tag on her backpack; a black tag with white lettering. It read I CARRY A GUN BECAUSE A COP IS TOO HEAVY. I got her attention and said I liked it. She laughed and said thank you. I then said I'm surprised you haven't...

    (Richard) Ramirez was a serial killer who terrorized the populations of Los Angeles and San Francisco from June of 1984 to August of 1985, claiming 14 victims. The crimes were huge news at the time. Few Americans had seen anything like it in their lifetimes. Ramirez was so aggressive and cocky, scrawling pentagrams on walls in victims’ homes and even making his final known rape victim swear allegiance to Satan. The public was desperate to see him captured. By July of 1985, Ramirez had already committed some 13 murders, 5 rapes including sodomy, and 3 attempted murders, yet it seemed...

    Police have responded to the Trump International Hotel in Washington DC after an anonymous threat to shoot up a meeting there supporting President Donald Trump. The threat was made ahead of the planned Tuesday evening event by an anonymous Twitter account that supports the Democratic Socialists, a far-left political group. 'I am coming with a gun and i expect to get numerous bloodstained MAGA hats as trophies,' the account wrote, referencing the Trump campaign slogan 'Make American Great Again'. The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the threat, department spokesman Hugh Carew told DailyMail.com, adding that no further details were immediately...

    "The pair have a storied bromance, which began when Mr Trudeau visited the White House for a state dinner last year" Even going-for-Trump-jugular Michael Moore realized that anti-gun activist David Hogg got it bass-ackwards by asking Canadians to meddle in American elections. Bass-ackwards because former President Barack Obama got away with meddling in Canada’s 2015 federal election by sending his top campaign team to help Justin Trudeau get elected as Canada’s prime minister.

    Jim Carrey delivered a succinct one-minute lecture on Canadian health care to American audiences on Real Time With Bill Maher on Friday night. Fed up with what he perceives as inaccurate descriptions of the Canadian health-care system, Carrey made it clear that he thinks the country's medical care is in great shape and didn't mince words in his brief monologue. "I grew up in Canada, OK? We have socialized medicine," said a Nike-wearing Carrey to Maher's audience. "I'm here to tell you this bulls**t line you get on all of the political shows from people is that it's a failure....

    It took Michael Moore to correct anti-gun protester David Hogg’s proposal for Canadians to meddle in American elections. After screening Moore’s anti-Trump “Fahrenheit 11/9” at the Toronto Film Festival, Hogg and other Parkland, Florida high school students joined the millionaire filmmaker on stage during a Q&A. “I have a question for you guys,” Hogg said after grabbing the mic from Moore. “Who’s ready to save America?” The Canadian audience cheered. “Who’s ready to make America the country we say it is on paper, and make it the actual country that it wants to be?” he asked. Hogg was the critical...

    Image from the CBC Canada's leftist government is considering a complete ban on handguns, similar to the one that exists in England.  It is a precise example of the "slippery slope" that United States supporters of the Second Amendment say they wish to avoid. Canada instituted mandatory registration of handguns in 1934. In  the entire history of the Canadian handgun registration, not one case has been found where the handgun registry solved or prevented a crime of violence. In 1993, Canada outlawed about half of the handguns on the handgun registry. The police in Toronto do not believe a...

    Once upon a time, Corey Anthony Booker seemed like “a statesman.” As mayor of Newark, New Jersey, he talked to everybody, made deals, comported himself with dignity. He stood out from the pack; he was seen as an up-and-comer. Yet move him to the Senate and place him in front of national cameras? He has become something of a loon. “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment,” he said, referring to his leakage of confidential information about Supreme Court nominee Brett Michael Kavanaugh during this week’s hearings. Say what?...

    On September 5 gun control activist David Hogg suggested AR-15s cannot be used for self-defense because they shoot further than handguns. He made this suggestion via a tweet which he sent in response Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony that AR-15s and other semiautomatic rifles are used for “self-defense.” Kavanaugh’s full statement was that “handguns and semi-automatic rifles are weapons used for hunting and for self-defense.” But Hogg isolated the words “self-defense” and tried to make a point: David Hogg ✔ @davidhogg111 The effective range of an AR-15 is 1600 feet for comparison your typical handgun is 75 feet if...

    Circuit Court Judge Jeff Harris this week ruled against University of Missouri law professor Royce Barondes, who challenged the school’s rule prohibiting concealed guns on campus — even if they’re locked in a personal car. {snip} Barondes, who has worked at MU since 2002 and teaches a course on firearms law, sued the university in 2015, challenging its gun prohibition. He sought no monetary payment. {snip} But Wednesday’s ruling only represents a partial victory for the university. The judge also has been asked to consider whether the MU gun policy is constitutional, a completely different question than whether it violates...

    Quick action by a vigilant pro-Second Amendment student at the University of Kansas has resulted in shutting down a professor’s anti-gun syllabus. After KU senior Victoria Snitsar shared a copy of the offending syllabus with university officials, the university forced the professor to remove language from his class syllabus that is not “in compliance with university guidelines and state law.” In his syllabus history professor Eric Rath requested students “not bring firearms to class or anywhere I am present.” Referencing widely discredited and biased gun control claims, Rath’s syllabus warned students that carrying a firearm could increase a student’s likelihood...

    'It’s self-evidently an attempt at controlling our culture and people’s discovery of it' Cody Wilson said that video-sharing giant YouTube removed video of his recent press conference announcing the sale of gun blueprints and a fundraiser for his ongoing legal fight over the publication of the same blueprints. "YouTube removed my fundraising video and my press conference," Wilson told the Washington Free Beacon. "They're saying it's ‘promotion of the sale of firearms.' They removed every video I've ever made on ghost gunner and Defcad. Press conference, attended by the NYT and AP is still gone." An email from YouTube to...

    Kavanaugh Will Kill the Constitution The legitimacy of the Supreme Court is on the line. By Paul Krugman Opinion Columnist Sept. 6, 2018 At a fundamental level, the attempt to jam Brett Kavanaugh onto the Supreme Court closely resembles the way Republicans passed a tax cut last year. Once again we see a rushed, nakedly partisan process, with G.O.P. leaders withholding much of the information that’s supposed to go into congressional deliberations. Once again the outcome is all too likely to rest on pure tribalism: Unless some Republicans develop a very late case of conscience, they will vote along party...

    A Hillary Clinton presidency would have been even more disruptive that the current Donald Trump administration, historian and prolific author Niall Ferguson told CNBC on Thursday. "There would have been an almost immediate impeachment process," Ferguson said in an interview with CNBC's Steve Sedgwick at the Ambrosetti Forum in Italy on Thursday. "More importantly, Trump supporters would have bought the story that the election had been rigged and you would have had Trump supporters with their pitchforks, or more likely semi-automatics, in a very ugly mood," he added. An anonymous op-ed published by The New York Times on Wednesday painted...
