    In the context of the recent "Brexit" referendum in the UK, the following is a discussion as to why the Left is so fond of unaccountable international organizations -- and why we should therefore be wary. "[Anxiety about the economy, terrorism and mass migration are providing] fertile terrain for reactionary politicians and demagogues peddling xenophobia, nationalism and isolationism." - US Vice-President Joe Biden***Obama Says Brexit Vote Reflects Fears of Globalization *** "People are waking up to realize that, look, this is potentially a misguided protest vote, but it is a protest vote, and politics is not working for a lot...

    Oregon mom fatally shoots home intruder after finding him in her child's bedroom After finding a stranger in her child’s bedroom, an Oregon mother opened fire and killed the intruder early Sunday morning. Police arrived at the home in Portland at about 1:47 a.m., when they found a dead man inside. The homeowner, 33, called 911 and told officers she shot him. The mother had been out with her two children, 5 and 10, when she came home and spotted the creep in one of her kid’s bedrooms. Already armed with a handgun, she shot and killed 59-year-old man hiding...

    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."

In declaring its opposition to the latest bi-partisan bill to prevent suspected terrorists from buying guns, the sordid group has accused the Democrats and Republicans of trying to suppress Muslims’ civil liberties.

So if I understand this, the powers to be in Hawaii ( Democrats) put gun owners that purchased the guns legally on the FBI list but not the criminals who do not have a permit that bought their guns underground or stole them that do not have not permit. Just another example of stupid Democrat / Socialist government punishing people for doing the things legally instead of going after the bad guys....

    Hawaii is considering a law that would place the names of all gun owners in the state in an FBI database. Supporters believe it’s a groundbreaking step to make Hawaii a national leader when it comes to safe gun laws according to the AP. The idea that placing the names of legal gun owners into a federal database will make Hawaii any safer is inherently flawed. The majority of gun violence isn’t committed by law abiding citizens who purchase and register their guns legally. It’s committed by those who do not. The law will deter legal gun ownership as many...

His purpose, he said, was to demonstrate how simple it was and to explore Illinois’ gun laws concerning assault weapons. When he bought the gun, Steinberg planned to sell it back to the store. However, his purchase was stopped by the gun store, which canceled the transaction during Illinois’ required 24-hour waiting period after discovering he had lied on his background check about his history of alcohol abuse and domestic violence. In his article, Steinberg admitted that while...

    Days after 49 people died and dozens others were injured at an Orlando gay nightclub, many in the LGBT community began expressing an piqued interest in their own security. The nation’s deadliest mass shooting — and deadliest terror attack since 9/11 — led to the rapid growth of groups like Pink Pistols, which provides resources for gay gun owners. The owner of a Houston, Texas, gun range aimed to add even more to the ranks by offering free classes to members of the LGBT community.

    “Did you see how dark it was? It’s likely that more people would have been killed.” This was Bill Clinton’s response to a suggestion that law abiding people with firearms of their own might have been able to save lives by stopping Islamic terrorist Omar Mateen at the Orlando nightclub Pulse. Of course, Bill was comfortably surrounded by armed security during his Bloomberg television interview, as was Barack during his speech in Orlando a few days later. But Obama offered an even more pointed dissent from those who believe the little people should be permitted the means of preserving their...

    There are millions of Americans who want to restrict firearm ownership and use by one degree or another. While you may disagree with those people, at least they’re consistent. For the most part, die-hard gun grabbers don’t own firearms, and have probably never even held a gun before. They’re not hypocrites, unlike the handful of politicians and celebrities who often lead them. It’s been pointed out by Second Amendment supporters for years, that the wealthy and famous liberals who say they hate gun so much, are typically flanked by professionally trained and armed security guards at all times. They tell...

After the December 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., she created the “One Million Moms for Gun Control” Facebook page. It later became “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.” We should have noted that Watts has a background in corporate communications. From 1998 to mid-2012, she was a corporate communications executive or consultant at such companies as Monsanto and FleishmanHillard. Before that, Watts had what she says was a...

Last week, station owner Frank Schwagel offered a 10-cent-per-gallon discount for law enforcement or people with proof of permit to carry after 7 p.m. each day.

    It has happened again: another mass shooting. For those of us who have spent a lot of time in places like the Pulse night club, this mass murder is particularly painful. In a culture in which queer people are made to feel grateful for merely being tolerated, gay clubs are spaces where we are celebrated — safe havens that represent the opposite of repression and violence. To have that shattered by someone pledging allegiance to ISIS is an incomprehensible contradiction. It doesn't make any sense.

    A corruption probe at the New York Police Department has cast a harsh light on how people get handgun permits in a city that boasts some of the nation’s toughest gun laws. Federal prosecutors say a shady fixer’s cash bribes induced officers working in NYPD’s licensing division to rubber-stamp dozens of gun applications, circumventing stringent background checks intended to weed out candidates with criminal records, mental health problems and other red flags. The potential public safety breach comes amid a national debate over whether easy access to weapons fueled the Orlando massacre and other mass shootings. …

No conviction, no due process, no appeal, no knowledge of why you are on the list, no way off the list, and it’s all shrouded in government secrecy, as is all future control of your life.

The service notifies the agencies when a firearm owner is arrested for a criminal offense anywhere in the country. This will allow county police departments in Hawai‘i to evaluate whether the firearm owner may continue...

    As congressional Democrats spent the week pressing for the passage of new gun control legislation, violent felons in Virginia were able to take steps towards having their right to own a firearm restored thanks to action taken by the state’s Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe. When McAuliffe restored the voting rights for 206,000 felons in a move critics say was politically motivated, he also opened the door for those felons to have their right to own a firearm restored. Previously, felons would individually have to petition the executive branch to have their civil rights restored. Petitioners would have to fill out...

It has also occasioned more radical ideas, including the repeal of the Second Amendment. That is exactly what Drexel University law professor David S. Cohen proposes in his June 13th article in Rolling Stone, “Why It’s Time to Repeal the Second Amendment.” Naturally, Cohen’s writing is full of passion. Anti-gun forces will no doubt laud his piece as visionary and compelling. It lacks any good arguments, however and suffers from the fatal flaw of...

    John Ratzenberger played one of America's most beloved sitcom characters, Cliff the Mailman, on "Cheers" for 11 years. Since then, he has become one of the most-employed voices in Pixar movies, with a role in the latest, "Finding Dory." But he's also a longtime Republican activist who will be appearing in four panels at Politicon starting Saturday and running through the weekend in Pasadena, California. LifeZette talked to the actor, 69, about his opinions on the issues involved in two of his four panels at the weekend gathering -- his passion for the Second Amendment ("Tons of Guns") and his...

    The stupid just keeps pouring from the obama regime. We've come to expect asininity and golly they don't disappoint. Our Attorney General let fly some words which leave you incredulous. “We stand with you to say that the good in this world far outweighs the evil, that our common humanity transcends our differences, and that our most effective response to terror and to hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love,” Lynch said. “We stand with you today as we grieve together, and long after the cameras are gone, we will continue to stand with you as we grow together in...

    Greg Nash Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) is spearheading gun control legislation that would keep firearms out of the hands of suspected terrorists, but it is unclear whether Republican leadership will give the bill a vote. The Terrorist Firearms Prevention Act announced Friday will serve as a companion bill to the compromise gun legislation introduced by Susan Collins (R-Maine) in the Senate. The gun legislation would prevent suspected terrorists from purchasing firearms. The bipartisan legislation appears to have Democratic support and is backed by a handful of Republicans, including Reps. Bob Dold (Ill.), Scott Rigell (Va.), Peter King (N.Y.) and...
  • Gun Store sells 30,000 AR-15's in 5 days after Orlando (Birth of an Internet Hoax or Joke on MSM?)

    Apparently many are being fooled by this outrageous story of how one gun store in "Podunk" Pennsylvania sold 30,000 AR-15's in 5 days after the Orlando shooting. This is an amazing feat of 21st century commerce since their "web presence" looks like something from the early 1990's. I've seen this Fox Business News story repeated on The Blaze, Washington Free Beacon, etc. This is patently absurd that no one from any reputable source has questioned this. Does no one fact check anymore (besides FreeRepublic)? The Hunters Warehouse owner, Tom Engle, told Stuart Varney of Fox Business News on June 17th...

    Famed civil-rights attorney Alan Dershowitz said Thursday that the Democrats "shot themselves in the foot" with their 25-hour demonstration for gun votes and that the "stunt" could hurt Hillary Clinton this fall. "I'm a liberal Democrat, supporter of Hillary Clinton," Dershowitz, a Harvard Law School professor emeritus, told CNN host Don Lemon. "They hurt her by making fools of themselves, sitting in on Congress and pulling this kind of stunt. "If Hillary Clinton is going to win, she's going to win because she has gravitas and because the Republicans are a bunch of buffoons. "Now, the Democrats are a bunch...
  • 'Top Gun' actress Kelly McGillis left 'scratched and bruised' after home invasion

    The actress, who is best known for playing Charlotte "Charlie" Blackwood in "Top Gun," recalled the scary incident in a recent Facebook post. "Upon entering the house I notice a pair of girls pink sandals and a black larger pair," McGillis wrote. At first, she thought it her daughter might be home and she called out several times for her. "[But then] a stranger, a woman, came barreling down the hallway and began yelling at me. I asked her who she is and why she was in my house and she said 'you know why you've been stalking me in...

    There are now more non-military government employees who carry guns than there are U.S. Marines, according to a new report.Open the Books, a taxpayer watchdog group, released a study Wednesday that finds domestic government agencies continue to grow their stockpiles of military-style weapons, as Democrats sat on the House floor calling for more restrictions on what guns American citizens can buy.The “Militarization of America” report found civilian agencies spent $1.48 billion on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment between 2006 and 2014. Examples include IRS agents with AR-15s, and EPA bureaucrats wearing camouflage.“Regulatory enforcement within administrative agencies now carries the might...

    On Thursday morning’s CNN Newsroom, host Carol Costello brought on Erich Pratt, executive director for Gun Owners of America to argue with him about guns as the root cause of violence in the U.S. Unfortunately for Costello, her guest had facts ready to combat the journalist’s agenda and ably argued his point to where Costello had nothing left to defend her case. (transcript) Pratt then pointed out that other countries have far stricter gun laws but have much higher rates of murder, like in Japan where suicide rates are astronomical. “Actually, our murder rate is not even in the top...
