  • Why the constant push for gun control?

    The Paris Post-Intelligencer ^ | July 1, 2016 | Dr. Larry Moore
    There is a “ho-hum” factor in the continuing pressures to have better gun control. Watch the liberal left and the Democrats in the House of Representatives push, tug and lie about “weapons of war.” These lawmakers want to first restrict AR-15s or similar automatic rifles. If they’re ever successful, then it’s only another step or two to eliminate other rifles, handguns and ammo. Why the constant push to eliminate guns and the Second Amendment? Here are a few more surprising facts about gun control that won’t be announced by liars who think gun control will reduce loss of lives. Everyone...

    Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine, who is on the shortlist to be Hillary Clinton's vice president, called for limiting the size of magazines on semi-automatic rifles. In an interview airing Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," moderator Chuck Todd asked, "Are you in favor of an assault-weapons ban?" "I have voted for it,” Kaine said. “But I think there’s a better way to go at the problem and that is limitations on the size of magazines and ammunition clips."

    Family members set to inherit a stockpile of guns and ammunition, worth millions of dollars, plan to destroy the weapons "to send a message," their attorney Daniel Brookman told ABC News today. "They want these instruments of death to be destroyed," Brookman said. "They don’t want these weapons out on the street." Jeffrey A. Lash, of Pacific Palisades, California, died last summer of natural causes, but left behind a stockpile of more than 1,500 guns, 6.5 tons of ammunition and nearly $250,000 in cash, according to local ABC-owned station KABC-TV. All of the purchases were legally made, KABC reported.

    Ammoland ^ | 14 June, 2016 | Dean Weingarten
    In 2016, Americans continue to break records for gun sales.  While the National Instant Check System (NICS) does not track gun sales directly, the numbers are highly correlated. The numbers of NICS checks, and the increase in private firearms, have skyrocketed during the Obama administration.The total for 2016 through the end of May is 11,698,006 instant checks. That is more than the entire year of 2007, which held the record up to that year. Thus, during the Obama years, the number of private firearm sales has doubled.  In 2015, the highest year on record, the total number of checks...

President Obama said this weekend that he'll meet Monday with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss his "options” toward curbing gun violence, after ordering his White House team several months ago to identify "new actions" that he can take. The president also said that he's taking action because Congress has failed to act. He is expected to use so-called executive orders to tighten federal...

If the Republicans who control Congress block votes on the proposal, Democrats hope to profit politically by winning sympathy from angry voters. ...

    In a surprising break from decades of compliance with a 19th century treaty, the Army has said it will likely allow its troops to use hollow-point and frangible ammunition in its handguns, arguing the rounds are commonly used by law enforcement and for self defense and pose less of a risk to bystanders than fully jacketed rounds. The previous ban on the use of hollowpoint ammunition for military rifles and handguns stems from the first Hague Convention of 1899, where ammunition that “expand or flatten easily” was banned for use in war. Though the United States never ratified that part...

Shapiro said that Trinity Wall Street Church in New York City owns stock in Walmart. "The church sued the Walmart when they refused to place a proposal on the shareholder ballot at the annual company meeting," he explained. "That proposal could be interpreted to force Walmart's board...

The Second Amendment, written in the era of muskets, does not mention what arms we have the right to keep and bear.
