    It was only a matter of time after Democrats grabbed all of the power in Virginia for them to begin to enact a radical left-wing agenda. And it should serve as a warning for the voters of any state to pay attention to so they know what is headed their way if they make this mistake. The first step that Virginia lawmakers are doing, and they have a good chance of enacting with their Democrat governor, is confiscating guns from those who legally own their firearms.~~~SNIP~~~And the governor was not done there. When asked by reporters if he would confiscate...

    Elections do, indeed, have consequences. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) of blackface fame boasted this week that his party is ready to implement an array of gun control measures in the commonwealth now that Democrats control all three branches of government, and his administration is already "working on" a plan for confiscating so-called "assault weapons" from law-abiding gun owners. What are the details? The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Northam wants to bring back eight "common-sense" gun control measures that Republicans shot down during a special session in July, prioritizing "universal background checks, banning the sale of assault weapons and...
  • 'O’Rourke Is Delusional': Sheriffs Rip Into Beto For Wanting to Send Cops to Confiscate AR-15s

    Law enforcement officials who have previously been critical of gun control measures now have harsh words for Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke after he proposed police go home-to-home in order to confiscate AR-15s from American citizens. O'Rourke was pressed on MSNBC after the fourth Democratic debate on what would be done if someone is not willing to sell their AR-15 to the government, as he suggested. "Yeah, I think just as in any law that is not followed or flagrantly abused, there have to be consequences or else there is no respect for the law," O'Rourke replied. "So you know,...

    There's one Democrat idea that clearly has Joe Scarborough very worried about the potential harm it could do to the eventual Dem candidate: Beto O'Rourke's proposal of a mandatory "assault weapon" buyback, aka, gun confiscation. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough scalded the proposal as "a stupendously bad idea," calling it "radical" and likely to be found "unconstitutional." Joe fretted that O'Rourke's gun-confiscation proposal, along with his support for stripping tax-exempt status from religious groups that don't support same-sex marriage, would be "be repeated around the clock between now and next November by whoever is the Republican nominee." And so it...

    In New Zealand, the far-left government has decided a national gun registry is necessary. They have been unsuccessful in confiscating (with payment) most of the previously legally owned semi-automatic rifles in the country.  There has been massive civil disobedience among New Zealand gun owners. The party line of the leftist government is there is no right to own guns in New Zealand. They cannot be entirely sure of that, because part of the new gun control scheme is to place into law the premise that there is no legal right to arms for New Zealanders. From npr.org: New Zealand's...

    The holy grail of those who wish us disarmed is gun registration. Once your guns are required to be registered, they are, in effect, already confiscated. A little thought will reveal to you why this is so.The Government will know who has legal possession of each firearm. They will know where the firearm is stored. When physical possession of the gun is desired, they can order you to turn it in. This has happened repeatedly. The historical examples include NAZI Germany, Soviet Russia, Red China, and Cambodia. Recent examples include Kosovo, Great Britain, Australia, New York, and California. Not...

    ... That’s pretty much what former Democratic Rep. O’Rourke’s campaign is about at this point. He’s seen a revival of his fortunes by jumping in front of the cameras whenever there’s a mass shooting and saying that it’s time to confiscate America’s AR-15s and other so-called “assault weapons” via a mandatory “buyback.” And does he think there’s going to be any trouble getting Mr. and Mrs. America to turn them all in? No, of course not. When he was asked about the logistics of his plan in Manchester, New Hampshire, he said that his mandatory so-called “buyback” plan wouldn’t include...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to bring forth gun control legislation following Saturday night's shooting in Odessa and Midland, Texas. Pelosi released the following statement about the tragic shooting: “America’s heart is broken by the senseless and horrific mass shooting tonight in Texas. The prayers of the nation are with the friends and families of the victims and the entire Midland and Odessa communities, and our deepest gratitude goes out to the first responders, who are bringing help and healing during this tragic time. “Enough...

    U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- On 28 August, 2019, relatives of a former gun dealer called the police because they said, they were concerned the 72-Year-old man might be depressed and/or suicidal. I do not know if the man was suicidal or not, but old white men commit the largest percentages of suicides. They tend to use guns to do the deed.  The police raided the house, on the authorization of the relatives. It appears to be a nice home in a nice neighborhood. Bustleton is home to many of Philadelphia's police officers and firefighters.The wellness check turned into a full-blown media circus....

    American gun owners have once again been reminded that the ultimate goal of U.S. gun control advocates is firearms bans and confiscation. Since the heinous terrorist attack in Christchurch, New Zealand, American anti-gun politicians, activists, and media outlets have offered their full-throated support for the New Zealand government’s efforts to ban and confiscate firearms from law-abiding gun owners.~~~~~SNIP~~~~~~Failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tweeted her support for Ardern’s confiscations measures, stating, “Under @jacindaardern's leadership, New Zealand has banned assault rifles and military-style semi-automatic weapons just six days after the Christchurch mosque attacks. Public servants didn't stop at offering thoughts...

    Full title: California Democrat spills the beans, says ‘gun confiscation’ is the ultimate goal to ‘prevent all gun violence’ It’s actually a good thing that Rep. Thompson let the cat out of the bag concerning what his political party is planning for the future of America. Their first step is to introduce what they love to call “reasonable gun control” measures – which aren’t in any way reasonable, by the way – as a soft-sell into total gun confiscation later on down the road.

    DENVER (CBS4) – Retired astronaut Mark Kelly and his wife, former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords are helping launch a new gun control group in Colorado. This one is made up of gun owners. The effort comes as gun sales are down, and the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to take up a gun rights case for the first time in nine years. Colorado Gun Owners for Safety is made up of sport shooters, gun collectors and hunters like Mike Heyka. “We’re not gun grabbers nor do we believe in arming everyone with guns is the answer. We are the moderate middle.”...

    The Truth About guns ^ | 16 Dec. 2018 | LUIS VALDES
    In 2012, Venezuela’s dictator-for-life President Hugo Chavez had his rubber stamp legislature pass the Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law. The public generally supported it at the time. The law stripped law-abiding Venezuelans of every firearm and round of ammunition they could legally own. As the country and its citizens have increasingly benefitted from the wonders of Bolivarian socialism, it appears that the public now regrets their support for total civilian disarmament. “Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” Javier Vanegas, 28, a Venezuelan...

    The Democrats are promising to make gun control a top priority as they are set to assume the majority in the House of Representatives. Some Democrats are even showing their true colors by foolishly stating that the government would use nukes on people refusing to comply with their gun confiscation mandates. While we can safely assume (hopefully anyway) that Representative Swalwell wouldn’t take out an entire state because people refused to surrender their constitutional rights, which he is sworn to uphold and protect incidentally, we shouldn’t assume our gun rights are safe just because Donald Trump is in the White...

Multnomah County is home to Portland, Oregon. ... A man accused of murdering his wife and leaving her body in a ditch is at the center of a firestorm between ICE and the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office....
