  • JPFO Launches "High Cap Freedom"

    JPFO Launches "High Cap Freedom" by Rabbi Dovid Bendory, Rabbinic Director, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. Copyright 2011 JPFO Rabbi BendoryJPFO today launches "The High Capacity Freedom Campaign". First, some background to highlight the hypocrisy and stupidity of a high-capacity magazine ban. Imagine you bought a Glock 17 9mm pistol a year ago. Your purchase was legal and included two 17-round magazines. Now along come Obama and other “common sense” gun-grabbers with a ban on “high capacity” magazines. The result? Based on the so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban of 1994, a federal mandate declares that after a certain date,...

    A survey of African-American and Latino communities found most believe addressing gun violence can lead to improved police-community relations and reduced rates of incarceration, according to a new report. The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, the Urban Institute and the Joyce Foundation commissioned the study, which was based on a national survey of 1,200 African-American and Latino likely voters and four focus groups in Atlanta and Milwaukee. "I think people are coming to grips that we can't address these issues in isolation," said Reggie Moore, director of Milwaukee's Office of Violence Prevention. He also referenced the survey's finding...

    PJ Media ^ | April 26, 2016 | Robert Spencer
    Could the next president of the United States be neither Clinton, Trump, Cruz, or Kasich ... but Thomas Perez? It’s far more likely than you might think. Even before any candidate definitively secures either party’s presidential nomination, 2016 is looking more and more like 1912 all over again. In that fateful year, Theodore Roosevelt -- after four years of bored retirement -- decided that he wanted to be president again. However, Roosevelt’s handpicked successor William Howard Taft refused to yield. Because of the split, even though the Democrats’ dour, arrogant Woodrow Wilson won fewer popular votes than perennial failed...

    The issue of nuisance lawsuits against gun manufacturers has moved well beyond the courtroom drama playing out with the Sandy Hook families. Bernie Sanders has managed to drive Hillary Clinton further to the left as she seeks lines of attack against the Vermont Senator, coaxing her into calling for the repeal of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) in recent campaign stops. That may serve her purposes in the primary, but how well does such a position play nationally as we look forward to the general election in November? A new survey conducted by Harper Polling indicates...

    A new gun control campaign is targeting Nevadans. A group founded by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, is pushing for new laws that would bar people on the terrorist watch list and the no-fly list from purchasing firearms. However, gun rights and civil rights groups continue to raise concerns about due process over those lists. The group, Americans for Responsible Solutions, said a majority of Nevadans would support a federal law prohibiting people on the FBI’s terrorist watch list or the no-fly list from buying firearms, according to poll results released Tuesday.

    Image from ABC News The above chart, created by ABC News, illustrates the trajectory of support and opposition for policies promoted by media elites that have no actual basis in fact or logic.  New media allows a significant, underdog, method to distribute facts about the policy.  The chart is a little misleading.  It starts in the middle of 1994, when the elite media control was near its height, and at the end of a blitz of media efforts to push the "Assault Weapon Ban" policy. These sort of policies, that rely on emotion, have to be enacted quickly, before...

    What does Hillary Clinton really believe on guns? This year, she is running to the left of Bernie Sanders. In 2008, she ran well to the right of Obama, arguing against any kind of federal “blanket rules.” On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton gave an address at Philadelphia’s St. Paul’s Baptist Church. With a nod to Pennsylvania’s high rate of gun ownership, she declared: “There is a Second Amendment, there are constitutional rights. We aren’t interested in taking away guns of lawful, responsible gun owners.” But in New York City in the fall, she told donors: “The Supreme Court is wrong on...

It is a staple of disarmists that the phrase "Guns kill people" is a truism. But a more valid truism holds: "It isn't what we don't know that gives us trouble, it's what we know that ain't so."  The maxim that "guns kill people" is simply false.   As true believers in the maxim, disarmists have attempted to craft studies to show that it is true.  The "studies"...

But the replacing of the slave-owning founder of the Democratic Party with a gun-toting black Republican may spark a political debate worth having and unearth historical truths worth learning.

She will give the boot to the nation's sixth president and a major figure in the Democratic Party, Andrew Jackson,...

The event included two people who lost family members when a gunman fatally shot 20 children and six adult staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown in 2012.

    Buh-bye, principles. I'm losing! Last week, we talked about Hillary’s ridiculous desire to let victims of gun crime sue the manufacturer of the weapon in question. Essentially, if some dirtbag shoots you with a Remington, Hillary wants to let you sue Remington Arms. It’s not about justice or recompense; it’s about enacting a de facto firearm ban by suing their makers out of existence. It’s also a horrible precedent that could be applied to virtually any item in existence. If someone uses a car, knife, baseball bat, Furby, or frying pan to commit a violent act, the aggrieved party would...

    While not as heavily reported in time past, women are becoming major players in the gun industry and ownership. Contrary to popular belief, women are not stalwarts of gun control politics–they want to protect themselves as any other American. That’s why across the country record numbers of women are lining up to obtain their gun permits. In fact, since 2007, there has been a 270 percent increase in women having concealed carry permits. So, the truth of the matter is that women have always been around guns; it was that no one was catering to their needs, especially when it...

After all, politicians cannot safely exercise absolute, uncontested authority over an armed public. And the majority of our nation’s ruling class--yes, Republicans included--yearn for such power; in part because it will bring an end to those annoying constitutional rights which prevent lawmakers implementing what they “know to be best,” but mostly because these self-infatuated mirror-gazers believe dictatorial authority to be their due.

The BBC seriously repeats the Venezuelan government’s claim that the ban is an “attempt by the government to improve security and cut crime.” The ban was preceded by an amnesty to get people to turn in their guns. The video gives some idea of what life is like in Venezuela these days. As the homicide rate was already rising before the gun ban and Venezuela is such a mess of a...

An actor dressed in a white rabbit costume looks on in horror for added effect. As the young girl shoots herself and creepy music plays, a narrator is heard saying, “Over one-third of all American households have a gun. Ask your neighbor: Is there a gun where they play? Asking saves kids.”

    On March 30, President Obama commuted the prison sentences of 62 criminals, 12 of whom were behind bars for gun-related drug crimes. This was just too much for Alabama’s senior Senator Richard Shelby (R), so the next day Shelby sent a stinging letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch. He asked her about the president’s hypocrisy and demanded answers to questions that he posed to her during a committee hearing back in January. Wrote Shelby: I have strong concerns that 12 of these 61 individuals were convicted of one, if not more, firearm-related offenses … [including]: Seven convictions of possession of...

    “Citizens are the terrorists, right?”  Hillary nods multiple times. “We’re so worried about terrorism but we have terrorism on our own soil, our gun manufacturers, our ammunition manufacturers are making terrorists out of our citizens,”  Hillary’s agreement seems even more vehement.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FRMilfsimE

    Shades of Chris Matthews' infamous thrill up his leg when listening to Barack Obama in 2008 . . . Fast forward to 2016, and we have ostensible Republican Nicolle Wallace getting the good kind of "chills" up her arm when listening to . . . Hillary Clinton talk about gun control. Morning Joe today played a clip of Hillary saying that many of the guns used to commit crimes in New York come from Bernie Sanders' home state of Vermont. For once, Clinton eschewed the grating tone that sends so many of us scrambling for the mute button. And that...

    One New York legislator is proposing some changes to the New York SAFE Act.Based on the fact that two separate minimum wage requirements were recently enacted by the legislature for residents of New York City and the central and upper parts of New York, Assemblyman Marc Butler is proposing that gun legislation be dealt with in the same manner. Most of the arrests and convictions from the New York SAFE Act have come from New York City, Butler says, and he thinks that law enforcement officers in Upstate New York have responded differently to the NY SAFE Act than those...

    Just moments before Attorney General Eric Holder was voted in contempt of Congress by Republicans and Democrats in June 2012 , President Obama asserted executive privilege over thousands of documents related to Operation Fast and Furious. Holder was held in contempt for stonewalling and failing to turn over the documents to the House Oversight Committee. Obama granted the executive privilege request despite claiming to have no knowledge about Operation Fast and Furious when it was active from 2009-2010. Now after years of court battles and a federal judge striking down the executive privilege assertion, Obama has finally agreed turned them...
  • What Does the Second Amendment Mean?

    It's one of the most controversial passages of the Constitution. Allegedly, it's also one of the most obscure and unintelligible sections. The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads, "a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." Prior to the Supreme Court's decision in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008), we were told for decades that the Second Amendment did not guarantee or even refer to an individual right. Based on the wording of United States v. Miller (1939), the theory...
  • Progress in Restoring the Right to Carry Arms in the United States

    The graphic display above does a superb job of conveying the progress that Second Amendment supporters have made in restoring a practical right to carry arms in the United States.  The right to keep and bear arms, codified in the Second Amendment, has been under attack in the United States since the 1830s, as power hungry governments found ways to infringe on the right under various pretexes, excuses, and fearmongering. First came the attacks on the concealed carry of arms.  This was justified under the pretext that it gave an unfair advantage to people with nefarious purposes.  It was...

    The legislature in the Mariana Islands moved to impose a $1,000 excise tax on all handguns sold in the U.S. territory on Wednesday. The legislation comes after a federal court struck down its handgun ban late last month. . . . The bill also included a number of other gun control measures including establishing a number of gun free zones, gun storage requirements, and waiting periods
  • RIFLES ON CAMPUS: COLLEGE POLICE FORCES ADD FIREPOWER

    04/08/2016 2:48:38 PM PDT · by matt04 · 6 replies
    Once a rarity on campuses, semi-automatic rifles are becoming a standard part of the arsenal for college police forces - firepower they say could make a difference the next time a gunman goes on a rampage. The weapons are rarely seen in public and often stashed away in cruisers or at department headquarters, and many schools won't talk about them. But federal data and Associated Press interviews and requests for records reveal that over the past decade, at least 100 U.S. college police agencies, and probably many more, have introduced rifles or acquired more of them. ... At Northeastern, the...

    Let’s Talk Lexington (MA) Have you ever gone hiking with a friend who tells you, “don’t worry about it, this is an easy climb”. Hours later you’re panting, out of water and 6 false summits from the top… The recent proposal regarding discussion of firearms in Lexington felt a lot like this hike. Imagine being invited to participate in a discussion. You happily oblige, you arrive at the time and place, excited to get going, eager to participate. The conversation begins and everything that’s being said to you is wrong, the facts being presented as supporting evidence are anything but....
