  • Embarrassing: If Anti-Gun Liberals Want To Ban Scary AR-15 Rifles,

    The anti-gun Left tried to push expanded background checks and failed. Now, they’re harping on increasing the age limit to buy long guns to 21; it’s 18 in most states. Florida recently passed a law that increased the age limit, with President Trump jostling with increasing the age at the federal level. Of course, this is a gross infringement on Second Amendment rights, but the pro-gun control crowd is pushing it. Why the hell not. They’ve had some legislative success here. Yet, the complete ignorance of basic firearms knowledge has led to them stepping on a rake again, with Moms Demand...

    omedian Owen Benjamin is a rising star in the battle for free speech and common sense. Using comedy as a weapon against left wing thought control, Benjamin has faced major criticism in the entertainment industry. In fact, SJWs in Hollywood have called for him to be blackballed because he dared to say that injecting hormones into 3 year old children to transition them into another gender is wrong. The Big Bear, as his online fans The Unbearables call Benjamin, is known for immediately adding jokes about current events into his stand up sets. So its no surprise that last weekend...

    Zeb Cadzow and Paul Herbert are experienced hunters who live north of the Arctic Circle in Fort Yukon, Alaska. In late March of 2008, residents of Fort Yukon, Alaska become concerned because a bear was not exhibiting any fear of humans near their town. Peter John originally saw the bear eating lynx carcasses near a cabin on the edge of town. People did not believe the white bear was a polar bear. Polar bears had never been seen in the area. They thought it was an albino grizzly or a grizzly bear covered with frost. The hunters, who depend for...
  • If You're Trying to Ban Guns, the Least You Could Do Is Learn the Basics

    The Washington Post recently published an op-ed by writer Adam Weinstein in which he argues that Second Amendment advocates "use jargon to bully gun-control supporters." "While debating the merits of various gun control proposals," he contends, "Second Amendment enthusiasts often diminish, or outright dismiss their views if they use imprecise firearms terminology." How dare Second Amendment advocates expect that those passionately arguing to limit their constitutional rights have some rudimentary knowledge of the devices they want to ban? To point out the constant glaring technical and policy "faux pas" of gun controllers is to engage in "gunsplaining," a bad-faith argument...

    TALLAHASSEE On a day filled with emotion, the Florida Senate Saturday debated measures in response to the Parkland tragedy to spend millions of dollars on school safety and mental health that lawmakers have long neglected and limits on access to guns for the first time in decades. In an unexpected move by a staunchly pro-gun Legislature, senators briefly approved and then rejected a two-year moratorium on sale of AR-15 assault rifles, the type used in the Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The surprise action came on an unrecorded voice vote, in which senators...

    A Democrat running for Congress in Illinois' fifth congressional district showcased his support for marijuana legalization by smoking pot in a new campaign ad. Benjamin Thomas Wolf, a former FBI official turned Chicago restaurant owner, told the Chicago Sun-Times that it is important to be upfront about recreational cannabis use and the potential economic and social benefits of legalization. "As a cannabis user, I think it's important we get out front and talk about it," said Wolf, who is vying to defeat incumbent Rep.I Mike Quigley (D., Ill.) in this year's Democratic primary. "We realize that cannabis can bring billions...

  • Dicks to stop selling that nasty AR.

    Did Dicks make the corporate decision to stop selling the dreaded AR, high capacity mags and change the age to sell a firearm to 21 on their own or were they pressured? At any rate I will not be shopping at Dicks any longer over their stupid heart string tug decision. The AR has never killed a sole or creature without the assistance of a human to make the interaction function as designed.

    You know there were some who thought the media was actually making steps towards improving their pervasive and appalling ignorance on basic gun facts. Like knowing the difference between automatic and semi-automatic firearms, while also knowing that the latter constitutes the vast majority of guns in America. Semiautomatic is a self-reloading firearm. It fires one round per trigger pull. Once a round is fired, the energy pushes the slide back, ejecting the casing, while the next round in the magazine is pushed up and chambered as the slide comes back. The video below of a Beretta 92 9mm (the gun...

    Anthony Ogline calls it America's rifle: the AR-15. It's the most popular sporting arm that's ever been produced, said Ogline, president of Verona Gun Safe, which sells an array of firearms. A massive amount of these are out there and there's a reason for its popularity. He's far from alone in declaring his love for the gun. Americans own 10 million AR-15 rifles, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Gun enthusiasts like that it's customizable with lots of accessories, easy to build, lightweight and easy to handle. Most gun manufacturers produce some version of an AR-15. Honestly they are...

    A Washington Parish parents group will be raffling 30 guns in March - including two AR-15 rifles like the one used in the recent mass killing at a Florida high school - to raise money for a Project Graduation event for seniors at Bowling Green School in Franklinton. Tickets for the raffle, dubbed "30 Days /30 Guns" cost $30 each, with 1,000 tickets to be sold, according to a school Facebook post that was published more than a week before the Florida school massacre but was recently taken down. The Feb. 5 post, sent to | The Times-Picayune, said...

    Next months special election in Pennsylvanias 18th district, between Republican state Sen. Rick Saccone and Democrat Conor Lamb, will be the first congressional election after last weeks school shooting in Parkland, Florida. The irony here is that Lamb, a former prosecutor, doesnt actually want much more gun control, and hes taken some heat from Democrats because of it. At a recent debate, Lamb said he would not support a ban on assault weapons like the AR-15 reportedly used by the Florida shooter. He echoed a statement he made after the Florida shooting, saying that Congress should shore up existing safeguards...

    Talk about a facepalm moment. Is it the media’s stupidity or stacking sandbags because they know this National Rifle Association initiative could gain traction? You decide. The NRA wants more armed guards in schools. Teachers should be allowed to carry as well. After the tragic Sandy Hook shooting, the school board voted to approve this proposal. This is not an alien concept. A lot of schools have resource officers; Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the site of the most recent school shooting on February 14, had such officers. They failed to engage the shooter, Nikolas Cruz. Scores of teachers in...

    Since the high school shooting in Florida, the anti-gun rhetoric has been flying fast and furious across the leftist media. Theres no responsibility attached to the shooter who killed 17 people; only the NRA and an AR-15 are to blame, apparently. But just three short months ago, the NRA and an AR-15 were used to stop the Sutherland Springs church massacre in Texas thanks to a brave and well-armed citizen, Stephen Willeford. Willeford retrieved his rifle from his gun safe and ran barefoot over to the church where he placed a precisely-aimed bullet in a small gap in the perpetrators...

    When it comes to public relations, the much-maligned AR-15 has had a rough go of late. Blamed for everything from the bubonic plague to school shootings it was actually used in (because as we all know, its never the perpetrator), it would be easy to be duped into thinking the world would be a veritable paradise if only this particular scary looking assault-weapon were somehow legislated out of existence.Granted, the lofty rhetoric employed by liberal politicians, gun control groups, and well-coached, albeit sympathetic Parkland students is sometimes difficult to defend. Despite the multiple failures at multiple agencies that could have...

    There comes a time when you have to do what you feel is right. For one West Richland woman, that meant taking an angle grinder and turning her AR-15 rifle into 22 pieces. Debbie Lentz on Monday destroyed her fuschia-and-black gun, which was a gift from her husband Tom about 10 years ago. Video of the dismantling, shot by her husband, went viral, catching the attention of CNN, Reuters and other international and local media outlets. I did not set out to get attention, but Im glad it is, Lentz said. My aim was to support Mr. (Scott) Pappalardo, whose...
