  • Donald Trump Says He’d Consider These Two Judges for U.S. Supreme Court

    During the Republican debate on Saturday night, Donald Trump floated two names as potential nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court: Judge Diane S. Sykes and Judge Bill Pryor. “We could have a Diane Sykes or a Bill Pryor, we have some fantastic people,” Trump told the audience. Both judges are well-known conservatives serving on the federal level. Who is Diane S. Sykes? Sykes is a federal judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. She was nominated by George W. Bush and confirmed in 2004. She went to Northwestern University and attended Marquette University Law School....

    "...Some of the last fireworks of the night came when Cruz attacked Trump's supposedly "very, very liberal" policies."Flexibility is a good thing, but you shouldn't be flexible on core principles," Cruz said. "I like Donald. He is an amazing entertainer. But his policies for most of his life..have been very, very liberal."Cruz continued:For most of his life, he has described himself as very pro-choice and as a supporter of partial-birth abortion. Right now today as a candidate, he supports federal taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. I disagree with him on that."You are the single biggest liar," Trump shot back. "You...

    Video at link. Little David was the nickname of an American 36-inch (910 mm) caliber mortar used for test firing aerial bombs during World War II, that is one of the largest calibre guns ever built, having a larger calibre than both of Germany's Dora and Gustav which were 31.5-inch (800 mm) railway guns. By 1944, it was expected that American forces would encounter extremely strong fortifications during the expected invasion of Japan. Studies began on using Little David as a siege mortar. The mortar was converted into a two piece mobile unit, consisting of the 80,000-pound (36,000 kg) barrel...

    Hillary Clinton, if president, could appoint 4 Supreme Court justices By Dave Boyer - The Washington Times - Thursday, November 12, 2015 Conservatives unhappy with U.S. Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage and Obamacare heard a powerful argument Thursday for defeating Hillary Rodham Clinton: The next president could appoint as many as four justices. When the next president takes the oath of office in January 2017, three current justices will be at least 80 years old: conservative Antonin Scalia (80), swing voter Anthony M. Kennedy (80) and liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg (83). Liberal Justice Stephen G. Breyer will be 78....

    As we have reported several times in the past (including here and here), the Veterans Administration (VA) has been reporting to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) the identities of its beneficiaries who have been assigned a "fiduciary" to manage their benefits. The VA claims that such determinations constitute an "adjudication of mental defectiveness" under federal law, thereby prohibiting the beneficiary (presumptively for life) from acquiring or possessing firearms. The NRA has for several years been supporting legislation to correct this unjustified infringement on Second Amendment rights, including the Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act (H.R. 2001, Rep.

    Few things are as painfully uncool as a 73-year-old billionaire's desperate attempts to be relevant. This fact is brought into stark realization by Michael Bloomberg front-group Everytown for Gun Safety's ham-handed new campaign aimed at stigmatizing guns and gun-owning men among young women. Dubbed "Singled Out," the campaign website curiously seeks to drive young women to the gun control cause by way of disparaging men who own firearms. To Everytown, gun-owning men are predominantly "gunsplainers", a derivation of the term mansplainer, which is a man who attempts to explain something to a woman in a patronizing way. Therefore, a "gunsplainer"...

    A virtual restoration of Constitutional carry was introduced to the Michigan legislature in 2015, but to my knowledge, it did not move. This may have been because a scandal involving an extramarital affair involving the sponsor, Cindy Gamrat. Int 2016, Constitutional carry bills were introduced in the House, numbered 5301 to 5304. From upnorthlive.com: "These bills simply place into law the Second Amendment rights of Michigan residents to bear arms without asking the government's permission to do so," Rep. Barrett said, sponsor of HB 5302. "The current concealed weapons permit amounts to nothing more than a state tax on...

    Now, a judge's ruling is allowing the Hartland Sportsmens Club gun range to reopen. The woman was hit a quarter of a mile away while having dinner at the Delafield Brewhouse. It was April of 2010 when Raluca Buznea's pregnant stomach was grazed by a stray bullet. Wednesday she learned the range can reopen. “She was surprised to hear that there's been a change, but her feeling is if this is the ruling, and the gun range can open and be safe, she'll live with that,” Buznea’s attorney, Jason Abraham said.

    Guess Who is Pro-Gun? Survey of College Professors Shows Surprising Views on Gun Ownership Academia is generally viewed as a liberal bastion, but one survey finds that despite their broad political leanings, college professors who have studied the impact of guns on society believe ownership of firearms makes the country safer. The academic survey by Gary A. Mauser, a professor at Canada's Simon Fraser University Beedle School of Business, and U.S. economist John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, finds that the attitude of academics actually corresponds with that of the general public. Prior to the 1990s, the...

    Report: Criminologists, Economists Find Benefits to Gun Ownership This past December marked three years since the massacre at Sandy Hook. Commemorating the anniversary, President Obama took to Facebook to pen a post that wondered how we as a nation explain congressional inaction on gun control to the victims' families. This type of rhetoric has been a common refrain from the president in the wake of other mass shootings since Newtown and the near-daily shootings in cities like Chicago. But despite attempts by President Obama, congressional Democrats, and the gun control lobby to push for stricter gun laws as the answer...

    Women are buying handguns in record numbers -- especially weapons that are small enough to conceal. But they are frustrated by the lack of firearm accessories catering to them. So some are starting companies of their own to tailor products to women. "I thought to myself, 'Where's all the women's stuff?'" said Lorelei Fay of Boise, Idaho. Fay couldn't find a suitable holster when she got her own concealed carry license. Her mother had taught her to sew, so she made her own: an elastic belly band with a holster for her Sig Sauer semiautomatic handgun. It also has pockets...

Bundy, 69, who was arrested in Portland, Oregon, late Wednesday, was charged with leading a "massive armed assault" against authorities outside his ranch to force them to abandon roughly 400 Bundy cattle they had rounded up. He had "trespassed his cattle" on federal public lands for more than 20 years, refusing to pay for required permits and thwarting federal court orders, the complaint alleges.

    Aero Precision's M5E1 is an evolutionary improvement on the basic AR-10 theme. The Aero Precision M5E1 is a logical development from their more basic M5 .308 autoloading rifle. It is positioned as a firearm that's practical in the field, yet more accurate and capable of sustained fire than typical hunting or defense rifles. The main upgrade is the strengthened receiver designed to give monolithic-rail effects without its logistical disadvantage, namely the difficulty of changing the forend. The area where the free-floated hand guard and the barrel attach to the receiver has been beefed up relative to the typical AR-10-style guns....

A gun thief in Minnesota who is receiving probation after stealing more than 85 guns is just the latest example of our nation's continued failure to put those committing gun crimes behind bars.

    02/11/2016 5:17:41 AM PST · by marktwain · 22 replies
    Photo courtesy of Charles Tassell I have often written that gun turn in programs, also known by the propaganda term 'gun buy back' (you cannot 'buy back' a gun you never owned), would benefit by including private buyers so that more guns could be purchased from people who do not want them, and the proceeds recycled into more gun turn ins. The program would then be self sustaining and perpetual, serving to give people who do not want guns an easy way to legally dispose of them, while saving valuable resources and directing the guns into the legal market....

    Right-wing rocker Ted Nugent defended his anti-Semitic post slamming prominent supporters of gun control, bizarrely claiming that anyone with sense knows that "Jews for gun control are Nazis in disguise." In the original post on the Motor City Madman's Facebook page, the Nuge shared an image of prominent politicians like Michael Bloomberg, Sen. Charles Schumer and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel under the banner "So who is really behind gun control?" Each photo was accompanied by an Israeli flag. TED NUGENT'S RECENT HISTORY OF OFFENSIVE REMARKS The Daily News’ coverage of the post even prompted a backlash among people who normally...
  • Police: Gun owner saved cop from attack by kids (40 "kids" surrounding cop)

    POLICE ARE crediting a vigilant gun owner with saving the life of an Upper Darby cop Friday after he saw the officer being attacked and surrounded by a large group of teens "There were 40 kids. If it wasn't for the good Samaritan stepping forward, he'd have been dead meat," Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said. "There's no doubt they would have attacked him." About 3 p.m. every weekday, from six to eight township police officers patrol the area near Upper Darby High School as nearly 4,000 kids pour out of the building on Lansdowne Avenue near School Lane.

    An analysis of mass shootings in the United States since the year 2002 shows that gun wielding mass killers are more likely to strike where the Second Amendment right to bear arms has been supplanted by "gun-free zone" ordinances; be they federal, local, or specified by the owner of the property. The Stanford University Libraries' dataset of mass shootings ("Stanford Mass Shootings in America, courtesy of the Stanford Geospatial Center and Stanford Libraries") was analyzed for mass shootings over the past 14 years.The definition of a mass shooting for the Stanford database is three or more shooting victims injured or...

    PHOENIX — Arizona taxpayers could be on the hook for up to $240 million to help convince adults to get state permits to carry concealed weapons. Members of the House Ways and Means Committee voted 5-4 Monday to give individuals a dollar-for-dollar income tax credit for the cost of the required course, up to $80. House Majority Leader Steve Montenegro, sponsor of HB 2494, said it will encourage people, who already can carry a concealed weapon without any training at all, to attend the eight-hour course. The Litchfield Park Republican said police officers have told him the first-line of defense...

    PHOENIX — State lawmakers are moving to protect Arizona citizens from being hauled off in the middle of the night by the Department of Homeland Security. The measure approved Tuesday by the Senate Committee on Federalism, Mandates and Fiscal Responsibility makes it illegal to "arrest or capture'' any citizen "with the intent of detention under the law of war.'' It also would bar executing anyone who has not first been convicted in a federal court. Sen. Judy Burges, R-Sun City West, said SB 1437 is aimed at the heart of the National Defense Authorization Act. She said that law is...

    SAN DIEGO -- A 25-year-old University of San Diego graduate who had recently moved to Chicago for a new job was killed by a stray bullet last week.   According to WLS-TV, Aaren O’Connor was sitting in her car in the Heart of Chicago neighborhood Friday night speaking on the phone with her sister in San Diego when the line went dead. When her father called O’Connor back, he said she sounded confused.    "She was incoherent, didn't know where she was, and kept saying that her head hurts. Her head hurts," David O’Connor told ABC7. "I wish I could have...

    In an extremely important decision on Feb. 4, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court’s ruling in favor of Maryland’s 2013 “Firearms Safety Act.” That statute (like so many supposed gun control laws) banned a wide range of “assault weapons” and prohibited the sale of magazines that can hold more than ten rounds. Crucially, in Kolbe v. Hogan, the majority held that courts must use “strict scrutiny” when they evaluate laws that impinge upon the Second Amendment rights of Americans. If the decision is upheld (and enemies of the Second Amendment will try desperately to get it...

    January of 2016 had the highest number of NICS checks for any January on record. There were 2,545,802 million checks, which translates to a bit less than 1.9 million new firearms. The industry is producing firearms as fast as they can, and they are being purchased just as fast. The demand side is crowded with first time buyers, women, and young urbans. Where will it end? Disarmists, those who wish us to be disarmed, constantly talk about "need". Need is something they seem to think that they are the only ones qualified to define. The idea of "need" is...

    Edward Peruta v. County of San Diego is a closely watched case in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Originally, a three judge panel ruled that Sheriff’s did not have the authority to arbitrarily refuse to grant permits to most citizens who applied for them, invalidating the “good reason” excuse that Sheriffs were using.The case is particularly important because the panel ruled that there is a Constituitonal right to carry a gun outside of the home, and that government entities may not effectively ban the carry of firearms outside of the home for self defense. At least one judge in...

    A favorite tactic employed by leftists is to describe the Nazis as “right wing,” with Adolf Hitler, their leader, as the grand leader of this “right wing” movement. Rewriting history is pretty common for leftists, as their history is littered with injustice (the KKK was founded by Democrats, did you know?). Injustices they claim to fight against today. Awkward. But thanks to this nifty thing called “history” in combination with “the internet,” we can bust this myth once and for all. Thoroughly. Or until a leftist insists on ignoring it. Then we’ll hold them down and tape their eyes open....
