  • FBI: Over Four Times More People Stabbed to Death Than Killed with Rifles of Any Kind

    10/16/2017 7:11:28 PM PDT · by blueyon · 16 replies ^ | 10/16/17 | by AWR Hawkins
    The FBI Uniform Crime Report (UCR) for 2016 shows more than four times as many people were stabbed to death than were killed with rifles of any kind. And because the category of rifles covers every type of rifle, this means there would be an even greater divide between the number of people stabbed to death versus those shot to death with an AR-15 or similar rifle. According to FBI: UCR Table 12, there were approximately 374 people shot and killed with rifles of any kind. There were 1,604 people killed with “knives or cutting instruments.” Table 12 also shows...

    Galvanized by the uglier-by-the-minute Harvey Weinstein scandal, women across social media are sharing their personal stories about sexual harassment and assault, using the "#MeToo" hashtag.  Among those speaking out is National Rifle Association spokeswoman and prominent conservative personality Dana Loesch -- who, for full disclosure, is also a friend of mine.  She revealed to the world on Sunday that she and her family are abandoning their home under serious duress, stemming from a whirlwind of violent threats from anti-gun leftists, a number of which have been explicitly sexual in nature.  No matter where one stands on the NRA agenda (I'm...

    National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch announced Sunday on Twitter that her family had been forced to move suddenly after she received multiple death threats from gun control advocates. Loesch, a conservative commentator and syndicated talk radio host, followed the announcement of her family's move by condemning the way politically progressive society has treated not just her, but conservative women as a whole.
  • Dems add 3-day pistol waiting period, Tannerite regulations to House bills

    10/16/2017 8:51:15 AM PDT · by PROCON · 59 replies ^ | Oct. 16, 2017 | Chris Eger
    Legislation to set a mandatory three-day waiting period for handgun transfers and establish licensing and registration guidelines on the sale of binary target markers have been introduced. The bills — HR.4018 and HR.4064 — were introduced by House Democrats last week and join a growing number of gun control proposals filed in the days immediately after a mass shooting in Las Vegas that left 59 dead. U.S. Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-Ill., debuted his handgun waiting period bill Thursday to mandate that three business days elapse from the time a handgun transfer was initiated between a federal firearms licensed dealer and...
  • If Liberals Truly Cared About Gun Control, They Would Support Closing U.S. Borders

    10/16/2017 7:52:46 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 17 replies ^ | October 16, 2017 | Justin Haskins
    Since the tragic shooting in Las Vegas, liberals in Hollywood, Washington, D.C., and the news media have been demanding stricter gun-control laws. Some, including The New York Times’ Bret Stephens, has even called for repealing the Second Amendment as the “only way” to reform an industry “that most of the developed world rightly considers nuts.” The debate is often cast by those on the left as one between those who don’t care about murder, death, and destruction and those who want to stop it tomorrow with “common sense” gun-control laws. But upon closer examination, it’s clear liberals know the kind of...
  • Exploiting Vegas: Nets Advance Anti-Gun Agenda 5 to 1

    10/16/2017 6:46:45 AM PDT · by rktman · 5 replies ^ | 10/16/2017 | Geoffrey Dickens
    In the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting massacre, the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks wasted little time in exploiting the tragedy to advance their anti-gun rights agenda. In just six days of (October 2 through October 8) coverage, the networks filled their evening and morning show programs with statements favoring gun control over gun rights by a ratio of roughly 5 to 1. MRC analysts reviewed all statements that took a position on overall gun policy by anchors, reporters, guests and soundbites, beginning with the morning of October 2 through the morning of October 8, and found time...
  • Trump voters open to bump stock ban after Las Vegas shooting

    As night follows day, mass shootings in America are followed by a succession of Democratic politicians and liberal activists pushing for tighter gun restrictions. Almost as reliably, those efforts fail. But in the wake of the massacre in Las Vegas, in which Stephen Paddock killed 58 people and injured hundreds more at an outdoor concert, there is reason to believe this time might be different. Paddock used “bump stock” devices that effectively turn semi-automatic firearms into fully automatic weapons, causing a higher death toll. Republicans and Democrats in Congress have shown some support for a ban of bump stocks. House...
  • Will new bipartisan House bill to ban bump stock guns actually ban all semi-auto guns?

    10/15/2017 2:27:00 PM PDT · by rogerantone1 · 28 replies
    Sometimes in the rush “to do something” after a tragedy, politicians put forward bills that could easily cause more harm than good. The legislation being put forward to ban “bump stocks,” a firearm accessory that uses the recoil of the semi-automatic gun to fire more rapidly, might end up banning all semi-automatic guns.

  • ‘Huntress’ in a hijab: Muslim shooter reveals secrets of the bush

    THE hunter stalks through the bush in full camouflage gear and combat boots, binoculars in hand, tracking that afternoon’s prey. When the deer is in sight, the hunter waits patiently for the perfect moment to strike, aiming a rifle with skill and firing one, clean shot, straight to the heart. A manicured hand with dark red nails reaches up to adjust the hunter’s hijab, her carefully made-up face relaxes and she whispers an Arabic prayer. Then, Kadeja Assaad sets off to skin and butcher her kill and take it home for her children’s dinner. This is a regular adventure for...

    Slate ^ | October 13, 2017 | Doug Pennington
    A simple, constitutional proposal that protects both Americans’ lives and liberty. The 27 words of the Second Amendment don’t say anything about how many guns someone can own in America. Neither do the other 7,564 words in the Constitution. Yes, this is a facile point to make. A lot of things—including rights, responsibilities, and government powers we take for granted—aren’t itemized in the Constitution. While saying you can’t find something doesn’t necessarily mean anything, conservatives use this trick all the time. Consider marriage equality, a precept protected by the Constitution’s Equal Protection and Due Process clauses. That’s the case even...
  • Body cameras, now gun cameras? Some police trying them out

    Associated Press ^ | Oct 14, 2017 10:48 AM EDT | Dave Collins
    A small number of police departments are showing interest in a new type of video camera that can be mounted directly on officers’ guns, saying it may offer a better view of officer-involved shootings than body cameras. Some law enforcement officials and civil rights groups are skeptical. Among the cons, they point out, is that gun cameras start recording only after weapons are removed from holsters and won’t capture what led to officers drawing their guns, or other interactions with the public. They also say they should be used only as a complement to body cameras. Besides the better view,...

    House Democrats have introduced a number of new gun control measures in the wake of a deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas.Among the proposals are HR.3962 to ban online ammunition sales, H.R. 4025 requiring gun dealers to report the sale of two or more rifles to the same person in a five-day period, and HR. 4052, which would ban magazines able to hold greater than 10 rounds.“Several of my colleagues and I have introduced commonsense legislation that, if enacted, would reduce gun violence and the tragic impact it has on our communities,” said U.S. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, the New...

    I think the path to the truth in the Las Vegas massacre is becoming free of roadblocks…at least for me. Report – FBI wiping eyewitness computers clean. Report – Jesus Campos, wounded security guard at Mandalay Resort, and family silenced by gag order. Report – Between time of Las Vegas shooting and now – Bill HR 3999 introduced -open door to the Second Amendment. Conclusion – Stephen Paddock linked to Deep State all of his life. My bottom line theory just came together with the introduction of Bill HR 3999 yesterday. It opens the door to the 2nd Amendment, and...

    Lucas, from Seymour, has been critical of the media’s coverage of his efforts to repeal a state law that requires a permit to carry a handgun. He has stated reporters, columnists and editorial boards mischaracterize his idea, which is sometimes referred to as “constitutional carry.” “If I was as irresponsible with my handgun as the media has been with their keyboard, I’d probably be in jail,” Lucas said. The proposal would require professional journalists to submit an application with Indiana State Police. They would be fingerprinted and would have to pay $75 for a lifetime license. If journalists have been...
  • Chris Murphy: Federal ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban Would Have Prevented Vegas Attack

    10/14/2017 6:37:49 AM PDT · by rktman · 52 replies ^ | 10/13/2017 | AWR Hawkins
    Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) says the federal “assault weapons” ban that lapsed in 2004 would have prevented the Las Vegas attack, had that ban still been in force today. This claim shows a deep misunderstanding of the “assault weapons” ban, which did not ban the possession or purchase of “assault weapons.” Rather, it limited importation and mandated types that could be manufactured in the U.S., thus driving up prices. For a man of means like Stephen Paddock, paying the higher price for an “assault weapon” would have been no problem.

    In a virtue signaling display common on the left, the Washington Post published an article critical of a church for raffling two rifles for charity.  Amy B. Wang, a writer for the post, made a national story of the dislike of a leftist for the raffle of two AR-15 type rifles.Image from oxfordeagle.comFrom “I had a kid approach me: ‘Would you like to join a raffle? We’ve got two AR-15s.’ And I’m like, whoa,” Belden-Adams said. Just the Sunday before, a gunman had opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas, killing 58 people and wounding...

    In the hypercharged partisan atmosphere that disgracefully follows any mass shooting tragedy, journalists, politicians, and anyone with an opinion spontaneously become firearms experts. Yet, as this U.S. Army combat infantry grunt can attest, these desk jockeys are no straight shooters. The Interstate 91 country music massacre is no exception. From talks of machine guns, bump stocks, “silencers” and the semantics of weapons transportation, these would-be sharpshooters are negligently off-target when it comes to the laws of modern warfare. Although reporters posing as weekend warriors insist that crazed gunman Stephen Paddock’s decision to use a bump stock made his shooting ambush...

    On October 13 the Guardian reported that background check laws in Colorado and Washington state have proven a failure because citizens simply will not comply with them. This means that after millions upon millions spent, political offices lost, and promises of a Utopian world with less gun crime made, the checks have been a bust. According to The Guardian, the failure of these background check laws was discovered via research by Injury Prevention and it “is a setback for a growing gun control movement that has centered its national strategy on precisely the kind of state laws passed in Colorado...
