    Second Amendment Check ^ | 4/24/18 | Second Amendment Check
    All companies we boycott have received a 2ACheck rating of “F” for their lack of respect for the rights of gun owners. Your experience with some of these companies will vary based on location, however, the boycott is based on the corporate policy toward responsible gun owners. We believe guns in the hands of good people make everyone safer. We encourage freedom loving Americans to boycott anti-gun companies until they improve their policy. Please share this page. We also strongly recommend everyone know the firearms laws applicable in their own state, and states they travel through. We recommend something like...

    President Donald Trump is increasingly relying on his personal cell phone to contact outside advisers, multiple sources inside and outside the White House told CNN, as Trump returns to the free-wheeling mode of operation that characterized the earliest days of his administration.

    Much of president’s agenda is riding on outcome of caseWhat the Supreme Court does with President Trump’s travel ban case, which reaches the justices this week, is likely to determine whether courts across the country give him the usual deference due a president and allow him leeway to pursue his immigration crackdown — or whether they join the anti-Trump resistance determined to thwart him at every turn. From battles in California, Illinois and Pennsylvania over sanctuary cities, to illegal immigrant teens gaining abortion rights, to the border wall, to Mr. Trump’s attempts to limit some paths to legal immigration and...

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 04/23/18 | Dan Zimmerman
    Kyle Kashuv is a Parkland student who, just like Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg, was at Douglas High School the day Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 of his classmates. Unlike Gonzalez and Hogg and many other Douglas survivors, Kashuv has been a lone, persistent student voice in favor of gun rights and the Second Amendment. Despite his support for the right to keep and bear arms, Kashuv didn’t own a firearm and had never fired one. That changed over the weekend when he went to a range with his father. He tweeted stills and video of the range session. As...

    Former Sen. Tom Coburn endorsed Republican candidate Mike Braun on Monday in the Indiana Senate race. “Like myself, Mike is a social & fiscal conservative who supports term limits,” Mr. Coburn, Oklahoma Republican, said in a statement. “As a successful businessman, Mike brings the very knowledge and background that is badly needed in our U.S. Senate today.” Mr. Coburn was known in the Senate as a budget hawk and published a yearly “Wastebook” to show some of the more ridiculous examples of government spending. He also made term limits his major policy initiative both while he served in office and...

    SALT LAKE CITY — Mitt Romney will again face a Kennedy in an election with a U.S. Senate seat on the line. Not one of those Kennedys. (Romney lost to Ted Kennedy in the 1994 Senate race in Massachusetts.) This is Mike Kennedy, a conservative state legislator from Alpine who outgunned Romney at the Utah Republican Party's state convention over the weekend, getting himself into a primary election June 26. Romney had already qualified for the ballot through signature gathering. But who is this guy? In short, Kennedy is a married father of eight children who works as a family...

    Even in extremely liberal Madison, Wisconsin, there is a core of Second Amendment supporters. Friends of the NRA is not a political group. The events are meant to raise money for things such as shooting ranges and teaching firearms safety. They are not allowed to endorse political candidates. It is clear that Friends of the NRA are Second Amendment supporters.  The Friends of the NRA in Madison, Wisconsin, held their 26th annual fundraising event on 11 April 2018. The event has been non-controversial for 25 years. This year the event drew some crybullies who want to tell other people...

    The Washington Post ^ | 04/23/18 | Jeff Stein
    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will unveil a plan for the federal government to guarantee a job paying $15 an hour and health-care benefits to every American worker “who wants or needs one,” embracing the kind of large-scale government works project that Democrats have shied away from in recent decades. Sanders's jobs guarantee would fund hundreds of projects throughout the United States aimed at addressing priorities such as infrastructure, caregiving, the environment, education and other goals. Under the job guarantee, every American would be entitled to a job under one of these projects or receive job training to be able to...

    Now solidly into the second year of Donald Trump’s presidency, we can look back at Barack Obama’s legacy with some context. Many aspects of Obama’s eight years in office will go down in history as a success, but not all of them. Let’s take a look at the worst mistakes he made and one force that may have rested even outside his control. 1. Confidence in the economy recovered post-Obama. 2. Obama oversaw a period of struggling labor. 3. The stock market struggled during Obama’s tenure. 4. The 44th president heightened tensions in the Middle East. 5. Obama let the...

    In 1993, Jay Simkin and Aaron Zelman of the group Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership published a document titled "Gun Control: Gateway to Tyranny," which highlights the similarities between the Nazi Weapons Law of March 18, 1938 and the U.S. Gun Control Act of 1968. Dedicated to the "tens of millions of victims of Nazi 'gun control," the book maintains that "the Nazi Weapons Law is the blueprint for 'gun control' in America." The following is a synopsis of their points: Access to ammunition and reloading components (bullets, gun powder, brass, and especially primers) will be controlled. Police-issued...

    In a stunning attempt to shift blame for Sunday’s deadly shooting at a Waffle House in Tennessee away from the mentally unstable criminal who perpetrated the crime, on Monday, an MSNBC panel claimed that gun he used, an AR-15 rifle, was the “real criminal” and that America’s pro-gun culture was also responsible for the killings. “What is your message, I guess I want to ask, to those who say, ‘Don’t touch my guns no matter what’?,” anchor Stephanie Ruhle fretted to New York Times columnist Bret Stephens early in the 9:00 a.m. ET hour. Seizing on the opportunity to immediately...

    It appears the Mueller investigation is winding down. The search for the rare Russian Collusion election birdie has turned up only a few lost Democratic canaries, chirping away in the ether. The only collusion was within the FBI, which desperately wanted to rid itself of a duly elected president, in favor of a woman some of them had prostituted themselves before for years and years. Those FBI canaries will now have their chance to sing. Both the House of Representatives and the FBI inspector general have requested criminal prosecution of those FBI personnel with a “higher loyalty” to Mrs. Clinton...

    ... Mr. Obama is inaugurating his most significant international project as an ex-president, with an announcement on Monday that the Obama Foundation plans to convene 200 young people this July in Johannesburg for five days of meetings, workshops and technical training. At the same time, Mr. Obama will deliver a lecture to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela, whom he eulogized after his death five years ago by saying he “makes me want to be a better man.” The choice of Mandela and South Africa are freighted with symbolism for Mr. Obama at a time when...
  • Brutal Column By Fired Conservative Writer, Kevin Williamson: When the Mob Came For Me

    Several weeks ago, acerbic conservative writer Kevin Williamson was fired from the job he'd just accepted at The Atlantic, a prestigious mainstream publication.  The supposed iniquity for which he was dismissed was a years-old exploration of potential policy consequences related to his views on the criminalization of abortion -- an outcome he supports.  The braying jackals who applied heavy pressure on The Atlantic's editor, Jeffrey Goldberg, to kick Williamson to the curb homed in on the columnist's ostensible stance that women who obtain abortions should be hanged.  This is a gross distortion, for reasons we'll get to shortly.  Some of...

    ... The mounting price tag of extreme weather events and the prospect of greater destruction to come have brought into focus a question that has been lurking at the edges of climate change conversations: Who should pay the costs of the death and destruction caused by human-driven global warming? The debate over climate accountability is not new. The Bali Action Plan established the idea - at least in theory - that the rich countries that have built their wealth by burning fossil fuels should help the poorer nations that are suffering disproportionate harms from a distorted atmosphere. "Climate change reparations"...
