  • HILLARY LIE: She Crapped All Over Supreme Court On Guns/ Wouldn’t Say She Supports 2nd

    Last Year, Clinton Lambasted The Supreme Court’s Decision In District Of Columbia V. Heller, Which Found D.C.’s Ban On Handguns Unconstitutional. “While Clinton has previously supported an assault weapons ban, this is the first time since launching her campaign that she indicated that she would take on the Supreme Court over gun issues. Although Clinton did not identify which Supreme Court case she disagreed with, she appeared to be criticizing the landmark 2008 ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller, which found the handgun ban in Washington, D.C., unconstitutional… ‘We’ve got to go after this,’ Clinton continued. ‘And here again,...

    On July 22 Hillary Clinton announced Tim Kaine as her running mate. 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. Todd asked Kaine if he believes the...

    At last night’s presidential debate Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton made all kinds of attacks on each other. But on one notable issue, they were in complete agreement: they both think people on the federal government’s “no fly list” should be categorically denied their right buy guns under the Second Amendment. Both candidates have repeatedly said so for months. Trump’s stance on this issue should be deeply troubling to those who care about gun rights – and also to people concerned about constitutional rights generally, even if they don’t care much about this one.

Democrats have authored a bill that would ban people on a federal terror watch list from purchasing guns or explosives. House and Senate Republicans have authored their own legislation, which would put in place a three-day waiting...

    It’s now law. In Missouri, you no longer need a license to carry a firearm in public. They’re the 12th state to adopt such a law known as constitutional carry; Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) represents a state with such a law. To those who love freedom and the Second Amendment, it’s a great day for the expansion of constitutional rights. For anti-gun liberals, it’s a day for hysterics, which wasperfectly captured by the editorial board of The New York Times: The measure has drawn no great national attention, but it certainly provides further evidence that gun safety cannot be...

That question applies with equal force in a case where state officials have decided to deny gun permits to individuals who have been issued cards enabling them to purchase medical marijuana.

    The rumor is circulating that new federal regulations / reclassification of Wetted Nitrocellulose by ATF will put an end to domestic smokeless powder production in the U.S. This is both true and not true. The BATFE proposed a new regulation for the storage, transportation and documentation of “wetted nitrocellulose,” which is a precursor for manufacture of smokeless powder. This proposed regulation would make compliance so difficult and expensive that it could cut off domestic production. However, because of industry input about the possible consequences of this proposed regulation, the BATFE has decided to withdraw it for further consideration. It could...

It has been said that a lie told often enough becomes the truth, and a similar phenomenon is overwhelming the gun debate in America. Oft-repeated untruths have formed common beliefs that often sway the debate about firearms. Gun-control advocates have learned that their exaggerated claims are likely to go unchecked by a largely sympathetic media, allowing them to control the narrative and shape public opinion. What is more, as Mr. Lott explains, billionaire elitists like George...

    Richard Reid was already a two-time felon when authorities searched his Delaware apartment and found marijuana, crack cocaine divided into sales-size plastic bags, powder cocaine, a scale — and a loaded .32 caliber handgun, an unloaded .25 caliber pistol and ammunition for two other types of weapons. Last week, President Obama commuted Reid’s 25-year sentence and made him one of the hundreds of drug users and dealers who the White House says have done enough time. But at the same time, Mr. Obama forgave scores of gun crimes convictions for the offenders, raising thorny questions about whether the White House...

    Late in the 2008 primary season, Hillary Clinton justified her refusal to drop out when it appeared impossible for her to win the nomination by saying “we all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California” during the 1968 primary. On today’s With All Due Respect, host Mark Halperin asked Hillary surrogate Neera Tanden whether there was a parallel between Hillary’s remark and that of Donald Trump today, who said “Second Amendment people” maybe could do something about a President Hillary trying to abolish the Second Amendment. Predictably, Tanden said there was “absolutely no parallel.” Why? Because Hillary was...

    Donald Trump has hinted at the assassination of Hillary Clinton by supporters of gun rights. The Republican nominee was speaking at a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina, about the next president’s power to appoint supreme court justices. “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” he said, adding: “Although the second amendment people – maybe there is, I don’t know.” The second amendment to the constitution protects the right of Americans to bear arms. Trump has accused his Democratic rival of wanting to abolish it, a charge that she denies. Live Trump implies 'second amendment folks'...
  • ISIS And The NRA: Similarities Abound (it will take a long time to count the lies in this one)

    Contentious as it might sound, there are significant similarities between the Islamic State terrorist organization, ISIS, and the National Rifle Association (NRA). Of course there are differences as well, but examining issues of congruence adds another dimension to the gun violence controversy. The most important parallels between ISIS and the NRA are: Institutionally, both organizations are remorseless about the deaths of victims Both use fear and intimidation to obtain their objectives Both assume their ideology is superior to the wishes of the majority of citizens Both have intensely loyal followers Both recruit and indoctrinate members who are ignorant of the...

    “The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice has provided oversight and recommendations for improvement of police services in a number of cities with consent decrees. This is one of the most effective ways to reduce discrimination in law enforcement and it needs to be beefed up and increased to cover as many of the 18,000-plus local law enforcement jurisdictions.” That was United Nations Rapporteur Maina Kai on July 27, a representative of the U.N. Human Rights Council, who on the tail-end of touring the U.S., endorsed a little-known and yet highly controversial practice by the Justice Department to...

    Just 97 days from today Americans will vote and elect a new President. Many will vote but few will be informed voters. The election of Hillary Clinton will bring swift destruction of what remains of America after eight years political famine under Barack Obama. Whether Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton is the more evil is debatable; what is clear, is that a nation already ablaze in an out of control lawless wildfire under Obama, will explode from the accelerant fanning of these flames by the “Wicked Witch of New York”. Only Constitutional Conservatives appear to be aware of the devastation...
  • July Gun Sales Crush Previous Record (2.2 million checks)

    08/02/2016 3:10:18 PM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 33 replies
    The number of gun-related background checks performed in July far exceeded those of any previous July, newly released numbers from the FBI show. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, processed nearly 2.2 million checks last month. That represents an increase of almost 600,000 checks over the previous record set last year. It is also an increase of more than a million checks over July 2011. The July record is the latest in a string of 15 record-setting months for firearm background checks. July also saw an increase over June’s numbers as the gun industry’s seasonal lull comes...
