    So a quick review of the so-called broadcast news stations (tv and radio) shows LOTS of praise for four or five Parkland students who are being manipulated by leftists kooks to go on tv and spew hatred at President Trump. Not a SINGLE BIT of curiosity from the media on how these children SUDDENLY have access to equipment for mass rallies, NETWORK tv talking.points, etc. Just amazing how in three days these kids become the latest face of Trump hatred. Oh, still not a single interview with a gun rights advocacy group. One kid on CNN says he will refuse...

    Attorneys for a southern California gun store chain have put the city of San Carlos on notice after it was blocked from opening an outlet in the city. The owners of Turner’s Outdoorsman Gun and Ammo Outlet say they were treated unfairly after the city of San Carlos issued a moratorium on new gun stores. Many community residents didn’t like the idea of a new gun store opening in town, especially in light of the recent mass shootings happening in the country. “Every time we have one of these horrific shootings, everyone says ‘No more! It has to stop, we...
  • Florida shooting: Gun control advocates rush to distort the truth about what happened in Parkland

    Fox News ^ | February 16, 2018 | John R. Lott, Jr.
    Gun control advocates are only too sure that they occupy the moral high ground. In the aftermath of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting that left 17 dead, they are accusing their opponents of having “blood on their hands.” It’s no longer just activists such as Chelsea Handler who are spewing such vitriol. Even mainstream liberals such as political scientist Norm Ornstein use the phrase.

    Gun control advocates often bank on scaring people into supporting their agenda. That’s how they’re fighting a “reciprocity” bill that requires concealed handgun permits to be honored in all 50 states — just like driver’s licenses. The scaremongering was on full display last Sunday, in CBS News’ “60 Minutes” lead segment by Steve Kroft on the dangers of concealed carry.

    On March 24 students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and other schools around the country will march in hopes of pressuring Congress to pass more gun control. Although the March is officially titled “March for Our Lives,” BuzzfeedNews reports the march is indeed focused on securing gun control: @BuzzFeedNews Florida shooting survivors announce March For Our Lives on March 24 in support of gun control: "We've been hearing is that it's not the yet time to talk about gun control...so here's the time we're going to talk about gun control, March 24." 10:05 AM - Feb 18, 2018 ABC...

The scaremongering was on full display last Sunday, in CBS News’ “60 Minutes” lead segment by Steve Kroft on the dangers of concealed carry. It comes at a strange time considering Wednesday’s Florida high school attack, where 17 people died in a “gun-free” zone. For that matter, all mass public shootings in Florida have been in places where general citizens weren’t allowed to defend...

    This is as close as it gets for me right now. My son Alex is a captain in the Fort Lauderdale. FL fire department. He does not have any school age children yet. But a couple of his first responder friends in the fire company were attending the school which was the latest target of a mass shooting in Broward County where 17 children were needlessly murdered. His friends’ children were not shot but some of their friends were. Yet none of us has to know anyone who was so slain to grieve for these lost children. I didn’t know...

    Young survivors of Wednesday's school shooting in Florida have announced a national march on Washington to demand political action on gun control. Student organisers told US media that they were determined to make Wednesday's shooting a turning point in the national gun debate. The attack, which left 17 students and staff members dead, was the deadliest US school shooting since 2012. Yesterday protestors chanted "shame on you" to US lawmakers and the president. Mr Trump said last year he would "never" infringe on the right to keep arms - a long-running and contested debate within the US. In his first...

    An Australian MP has drawn criticism for posting a photo online that showed him aiming a gun and asking: "Do you feel lucky, greenie punks?" George Christensen, a government MP, put the photo on Facebook on Saturday. The Greens party said the conservative MP's post was "disgraceful", noting it came in the same week that 17 people died in a US school shooting. Police said they would consider whether an investigation was warranted. The MP defended his post as "a joke". Mr Christensen said the post was a "tongue-in-cheek" reference to a famous line from the 1971 film Dirty Harry,...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin offered comments about Wednesday’s mass murder at a Florida high school when she spoke with Breitbart News’s Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight on Friday. “It’s not a Second Amendment gun issue at all,” Palin said, adding, “What needs to be discussed is the failure of the FBI.” Incompetence at the FBI — not agitation against the Second Amendment — should be a national focus related to the mass shooting in Florida, said Palin. Adding to that assertion, Palin stated, “What needs to be discussed is the failure of the FBI. This...

    In the wake of the shooting that killed 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Florida, stars far and wide are speaking out in the ongoing gun control debate. Now, “The Big Bang Theory” star Mayim Bialik has made an impassioned plea for “civil disobedience.” The star took to Facebook with a video post calling out lawmakers who receive funding from the National Rifle Association and private citizens who own guns. “The images of those 17 faces will not leave my head, but I said that about the last shooting and the last faces and indeed, we forget,” she...

    Today on NBC's Meet the Press, Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) chatted with host Chuck Todd about the proper solutions to end mass shootings such as the one that occurred last week in Parkland, Florida that left 17 innocent Americans killed. Sen. Lankford argued for more extensive background checks, but maintained that the right to own guns is still a constitutional right that must be respected and recognized. Sen. Lankford also emphasized that the ultimate problem is not the type of gun used, but the intent of the person wielding the gun that makes the difference.  The host asked Sen. Lankford what,...

    Today, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was interviewed by Fox News' Chris Wallace regarding the horrific massacre that occurred last week at the hands of gunman Nikolas Cruz. That shooting which occurred at a High School in Parkland, FL left 17 dead and many more injured.  In the wake of the tragedy, thousands have called for more gun control and and mental health measures to prevent the next shooting. But, Limbaugh argued that none of the proposed ideas will actually stop the next shooting and America must protect its students by arming our teachers in preparation for the next tragedy. "What...

    On Thursday, Minneapolis station WCCO reported on guns and crime in Minnesota. Anchor Frank Vascarello's introduction: "More people are carrying guns than ever before, but the crime rate remains low." Imagine that. Reporter Pat Kessler also treated more guns and less crime as paradoxical. Reporting on crime and guns has been infested with the "Fox Butterfield effect." It is named after a New York Times reporter, who in November 2004 was surprised that: The number of inmates in state and federal prisons rose 2.1 percent last year, even as violent crime and property crime fell. Later, a puzzled Butterfield referred to "the paradox...

    West Texas school district allows concealed carry on campus CLAUDE, TX (KFDA) - Claude Independent School District has several staff members that carry concealed weapons on school grounds. A sign in front of Claude ISD campuses shows that the district has multiple staff members who carry concealed weapons. Parents who have children at the school say they feel very safe and comfortable knowing their staff are armed and ready to protect them if they have to. "It makes me feel really, really safe that we have staff on hand if anything happened," said mother of a Claude ISD student...

    Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich said the deadly school shooting on Wednesday should be a rallying moment for the nation on guns, but he predicted Congress would not live up to the task, and suggested the President should take the lead. "Do I think they can do anything on guns? I hope they prove me wrong and they can because I have no confidence in them," Kasich said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "We need leadership out of the executive," he said. "This is a great opportunity for common sense steps that can be taken. ... Mr. President,...

    During a February 18 appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press, Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) told Chuck Todd that handguns are used for crime far more often than AR-15s. Lankford’s statement followed Todd’s focus on how an 18-year-old can buy an AR-15 in Florida, but must be 21 in order to buy a handgun. During the live broadcast, Lankford responded, “An AR-15 is a rifle, a handgun is obviously a handgun…[and] there are three, four, five times as many crimes committed with a handgun than there are with a rifle.” He added, “When you look at the statistics, many, many, many,...

    Federal Investigative Committee head Alexander Bastrykin said on Tuesday that the students who carried out attacks in January at high schools in Perm, Chelyabinsk, and Ulan-Ude had frequented “sadistic” websites “that propagate school violence,” including a website dedicated to the 1999 Columbine High School massacre in the United States that killed 15 people, including the two shooters: Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. Speaking at an agency board meeting, Bastrykin also discussed the existence of “suicide websites” dedicated to Russian teenagers who have killed themselves. According to the chief investigator, 40 juveniles in the Moscow region alone committed suicide after finding...
