  • Ben Carson Is Right: Yes, Jews Should Have Had Guns In The Holocaust

    On Thursday, Republican 2016 presidential contender Dr. Ben Carson stated on CNN that the Holocaust would have been less likely had Jews been armed. In his new book, A Perfect Union, Carson contends, “Through a combination of removing guns and disseminating propaganda, the Nazis were able to carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance.”

    The man certainly does know his way around a Hitler hypothetical. Just ask his own campaign manager. “It’s an example [Carson] has been using for years and to be honest with you he needs to find a better example because the problem is as soon as you say Hitler, nobody hears anything else you say,” Campaign Manager Barry Bennett told ABC News. “Its just so evil, so contemptible, that no one can hear anything else.” Believe it or not, that comment was in reference not to what Carson said yesterday on CNN about gun control in the Third Reich...

    How about the next time the mainstream media decide to fabricate a controversy against a conservative presidential candidate, they choose something less laughable? The media's latest faux gasp concerns Dr. Ben Carson's comments about the Oregon school shooting. When I first watched news reports on it, I didn't immediately grasp the reason for the fuss, not having the artificial sensibilities of the MSM. Asked what he would do in a similar situation as the victims, Carson said: "I would ask everybody to attack the gunman because he can only shoot one of us at a time. That way, we don't...

    Republican candidate Ben Carson continued his controversial remarks about guns Thursday -- suggesting in a new interview that the Jews may have been able to diminish the likelihood of the Holocaust if they were armed. Carson made the remarks, which drew swift condemnation -- on CNN. He said that passengers on Flight 93, which crashed on 9/11, helped avoid further tragedy by rushing the gunman. In Carson's new book “A Perfect Union,” Carson writes that “through a combination of removing guns and disseminating propaganda, the Nazis were able to carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance.”(continued)

    Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has suggested that Barack Obama was not a “real black” president in a tweet praising Republican candidate Ben Carson on Wednesday night. Murdoch, who has repeatedly praised Carson in recent months, tweeted: “Ben and Candy Carson terrific. What about a real black president who can properly address the racial divide? And much else.” He then directed followers to an article in New York magazine that he said showed “minority community disappointment” with the president’s record. However, his earlier tweet directly implied that Obama, whose mother was a white American and whose father was a Kenyan studying...

    Common sense apparently does strange things to some progressive minds. Yesterday morning, speaking on Fox and Friends, Ben Carson said of a mass-shooting situation, “I would not just stand there and let him shoot me. I would say, ‘Hey guys, everybody attack him. He may shoot me, but he can’t get us all.’” The New York Times declared that his statement was “drawing widespread rebuke from his critics and reviving questions about his candidacy.” ABC News asked him to “clarify” his statement, leading to this rather amusing exchange: ABC: Dr. Carson can you clarify your statements on the Oregon shooting?...

He is meeting with the families of victims of the Umpqua Community College shooting, then flying to Seattle for Democratic National Committee roundtable. Gov. Kate Brown will accompany Obama on his visits. Neither are expected to speak publicly. Yet, many see Obama's meeting the grieving families as a maneuver to push gun control laws in Congress.

    Tomorrow President Obama is scheduled to visit Rosenburg, Oregon, where 10 people were killed last week at Umpqua Community College by a deranged killer who happened to use a gun to carry out his crimes. We've already reported on the repulsed reaction from the community as people who live there continue to reject Obama's visit. Now Stacy Boylan, the father of shooting victim Ana Boylan, is directly speaking out against Obama's visit and has no interest in putting up with his exploitation of the tragedy for political purposes.

A CNN report aired Tuesday on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" noted there are "new questions whether the mother of the Oregon shooter … shares at least some of the responsibility for the tragedy."

The presidential candidate and world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon suggested that mass killers, like so and so in Roseburg, Oregon, last week, should be stormed by those awaiting death and injury at their hands. “I would not just stand there and let him shoot me,” said Dr. Carson. “I would say: ‘Hey, guys, everybody attack him! He may shoot me, but he can’t get us all.’” He also suggested declaring schools as so-called “gun-free zones” is counterproductive and added that...

Two lovely young people, Alison Parker (news reporter) and Adam Ward (photojournalist), of Roanoke, Virginia, were gunned-down on live TV, in a scene reminiscent of the film “15 Minutes,” in which an anchor’s drive for ratings and a murderer’s quest for his 15 Minutes of Fame result in … gun, fist and other gratuitous, on-air violence.

    The public personas who pass as conservatives are not system builders.

A careful thinker would allude to “goon violence.” “For guns are not the root cause of man’s evil actions. Neither are the multiplying categories of manufactured illness in the psychiatric Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Evil is integral to the human condition, always has been, always will be....

As Charlie eloquently outlines, repealing the Second Amendment is an impossible task. Even worse for the Left, it’s political suicide.But if the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v.

Unsurprisingly, the left seems completely flummoxed as to why the NRA and other Second Amendment supporters oppose some gun laws that have been floated by liberals in the past few years, despite these laws having the support of a majority of Americans.

  • Gun Control's Biggest Problem: Most People Just Don't Care Very Much

    Atkins is certainly right that Democratic legislators won't act on gun control until voters are mobilized, but that puts the cart before the horse. You can't mobilize voters on an issue they don't really care much about in the first place. In this case, I think the folks who prioritize issue-area visibility and engagement probably have the better of the argument. Until voters who favor gun control feel as strongly as those who oppose it, all the field work in the world won't do any good.

    Raymond Fryberg was found guilty of illegal possession of firearms by a jury in a federal trial.  The case serves as a warning for those who fail to contest domestic violence restraining orders.  The restraining order used to convict Fryberg was granted in 2002.  It was a permanent restraining order.  The order was requested by Fryberg's former girlfriend,  Jamie Gobin.  The two have a child in common. Originally, the restraining order was temporary.  There was a hearing to determine if the restraining order should be permanent.  Records show that Fryberg was served notice of the hearing, but he never...

    In an item after the Oregon shootings, I quoted a reader from Florida saying that if you owned more than 10 guns yourself, you might be considered to have an “arsenal.” And just now on TV I heard the British father of the Oregon murderer asking why anyone, including his son, would want or need so many guns. Yesterday I quoted a reader who said, on the contrary, ten or more guns could be a perfectly reasonable collection for perfectly non-threatening citizens to have. On the “how much is enough” point, responses from two readers. First, on the similarities and...
  • Obama's change crusade hits reality on guns

    Still, some gun-control advocates say Obama could do more than talk. "We believe that on a few very specific fronts they can do more to crack down on bad-apple gun dealers, the very small percentage of gun dealers who sell almost every crime gun in the U.S.," said Dan Gross, president of the Brady campaign. "The ATF has the power to crack down on them and pull their licenses if they are responsible for business practices that wind up causing gun crime and gun violence." The White House could also lead a national conversation on the public health and safety...
  • Barack Obama-Hood Fast-Tracks $29 Million to Families of Charleston Shooting Victims

    Barack Obama really does think he’s a king. He’s now redistributing $29 million of taxpayer dollars to the families of the nine people murdered by Dylann Roof in Charleston, South Carolina. That comes to $3.2 million per family. Where in the Constitution does it say the president can or should do this? This looks like theft.
