    The FBI has published a brief report on the shooting in Alexandria. It is devastating to the idea that the gun-control measures presently coveted by the Democratic party would have done something to prevent the attack. Over the past two decades, Democrats have focused on three major proposals for reform. They are: 1) That all private transfers should be contingent upon a federal background check; 2) That firearms that look a certain way should be classed as “assault weapons” and prohibited from sale; and 3) That civilians should be forbidden from buying magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. None...
  • Union County [NJ] Dem Operative Says to "Hunt Republicans" After Scalise Shooting

    NJ Second Amendment Society ^ | June 16, 2017 | Alexander Roubian
    Longtime Union County Democratic operative James Devine has shown his true colors in response to the shooting of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise. Devine, unapologetic with his words, is calling for a "hunt" of Republicans under the hashtag #HuntRepublicanCongressmen. He also claims he was not advocating for violence, which might be believable to people who think law-abiding citizens protecting their Second Amendment rights are responsible for violence in America. In fact, he claims he was mirroring GOP Senator Rand Paul's comment that the Second Amendment is for "shooting at the government when it becomes tyrannical." His idea of a tyrannical...

    Although he was seriously wounded, it is a lucky thing that Rep. Steve Scalise made it to baseball practice on Wednesday morning. Due to his position as majority whip, armed Capitol Hill Police accompanied Scalise. This security detail saved the lives of his House colleagues and two senators. As Rep. Mike Bishop (R-Mich.), told WWJ radio in Detroit, “The only reason — the only reason — why any of us walked out of this thing: By the grace of God, one of the folks here had a weapon to fire back and give us a moment to find cover. Because...

    Dana just destroyed a Lefty Gun Control Freak. He would enot answer McCallums question of how many life's are saved by law abiding Gun owners / law enforcement whom take down scumbags with guns. Dana pulled no punches, called him out twice if I recall as a liar and sited studies to prove he was a liar. It was beautiful. Hopefully Fruckerburgh won't take it down when it hit YouTube.

    Before the facts were even known about Wednesday morning’s 7 AM shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, gun control advocates were already calling for more stringent laws. ■ David Frum, senior editor for the Atlantic, called for background checks, gun licensing and registration, long gun permits, limits on magazine size, and restrictions on open carrying of guns. ■ Windsor Mann, a columnist for USA Today, blamed “easy access to deadly weapons.” ■ Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe blamed the attack on “too many guns” and immediately called for more gun control. We don’t even know yet whether these laws could conceivably have...

    You knew the MSM would turn the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise and others into a gun-control story. And sure enough, on MSNBC just now, terrorism "expert" Malcolm Nance said: “The most important thing that we need to understand from this is, this is what happens when you have an over-proliferation of guns. And it’s to be expected to a certain extent.” View the video here.

    At a news conference on the shooting at a Republican baseball practice in Alexandria, Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe (D) called for gun control. McAuliffe called for more background checks and ending "gunshow loopholes." McAuliffe said 93 million people are a victim of gun violence a day. "This is not what today is about but there are too many guns on the street," the governor said Wednesday morning. "We lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence."

    It’s hard to imagine that it’s been one year since the tragic events that befell attendants at Pulse, a gay bar in Orlando, where a disturbed individual and terrorist opened fire upon patrons, killing 49 people and then himself. I, as a gay man, was shocked at the sheer carnage of the incident and believed it was a personal attack upon me and my people.... The time for a respectable, adult discussion for combatting gun violence has long since passed. Let us not wait for the next Orlando or Dallas before we start this whole cycle over again."
  • The arrogance of one-party government in California (gun laws)

    American Thinker ^ | Thomas Lifson
    The California state Senate voted 28-8 Wednesday to exempt itself from the pointless gun-control laws that apply to the rest of the populace. Legislators apparently think they alone are worthy to pack heat on the streets for personal protection, and the masses ought to wait until the police arrive. California’s gun control laws are draconian, and getting a concealed carry permit depends on the whim of your local sheriff. If, like most Californians, you live in an urban county, it may be all but impossible, absent public death threats lodged against you. But not for our legislators. Secure in the...

    According to People, Stewart’s attendance was highlighted by Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Gross said Stewart had approached him with an idea about a new way to push gun control and that he was “impressed” by her proposal. He said, “She came to us because she has something she wants to do with this issue. She eagerly shared her idea and without hesitation and is showing up tonight. She is committed to actually doing something, not just lending her name.” While no specifics were given about Stewart’s gun control idea, People reports that it...

    A mother shot and killed an armed suspect in front of her young children during an attempted home invasion in Indianapolis on Wednesday. Indianapolis police confirmed the fatal shooting and said the mother and her four children were fine, according to local NBC4i.com.

Police confirmed the suspect was indeed armed. He was unidentified as of press time. Neighbors told Fox affiliate Fox 59 the...

    In an article that claims the famous researcher John Lott is partly responsible for mass murder, the author let slip an interesting bit of information. John Lott was a Democrat before he conducted his well known research.  From psmag.com: Outside of the Baylor auditorium, Lott told me about his journey to becoming the most prominent and most hated gun researcher: His interest in guns, he said, started when he was an economist at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Students asked him about his thoughts on gun control, and so Lott started researching. He wasn't a gun...
  • Czech government tells its citizens how to fight terrorists: Shoot them yourselves

    06/07/2017 4:42:10 PM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 35 replies
    A couple of months ago, Czech President Milos Zeman made an unusual request: He urged citizens to arm themselves against a possible "super-Holocaust" carried out by Muslim terrorists. Never mind that there are fewer than 4,000 Muslims in this country of 10 million people — gun purchases spiked. One shop owner in East Bohemia, a region in the northern center of the Czech Republic, told a local paper that people were scared of a "wave of Islamists." Now the country's interior ministry is pushing a constitutional change that would let citizens use guns against terrorists. Proponents say this could save...

    You don't hear too many tourists coming to the United States to shoot firearms. But it is a fact according to the U.S. Travel/Trade, its in many of the wealthy Chinese tourists buckets of things to do in the U.S. In China, you cannot own a firearm, air rifle or even a toy gun. Having a toy gun can land you some jail time. Which obviously has created an odd tourism opportunity here. Enter Dickson Wong, who is a marksman with a deep interest in firearms. He arranges tours for groups of chinese tourists who are gun enthusiasts to travel...

    A year ago, Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives staged a sit-in demanding a vote on federal gun-safety bills following the shootings at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. The National Rifle Association’s lobbying was largely blamed for no vote happening. But looking deeper, the Second Amendment with the unique American individualism wrapped around it underlies all. It is America’s fundamental gun problem. As Michael Waldman at the Brennan Center for Justice suggests in Politico Magazine (2014), the NRA’s construing of the Second Amendment as an unconditional “right” to own and carry guns (a “right” beyond actual constitutional law...

    The American Rifleman ^ | 23 August, 2012 | Frank Miniter
    Predictably such restrictions reduced the number of firearms in law-abiding citizens’ hands. Then came the Battle of Dunkirk in 1940. As the German war machine advanced, the British Expeditionary Force evacuated back across the English Channel. The retreat was costly. In their haste British troops abandoned most of their equipment. The massive loss of military arms, combined with the fact that the English people had been mostly disarmed, left the British people almost helpless before the advance of the Third Reich. Luckily, they had gun-owning friends across the Atlantic. In 1940 a group of Americans, headed by C. Suydam...

    Guns Hidden from the Government and Confiscated in Wales The exemplar for restrictive firearms regulation in the United States has been England and Wales.   Some have argued that it was NAZI Germany, but though the 1968 Gun Control Act borrowed heavily from NAZI law, the country and laws that most have referred to has been England.  Wales shares the same laws and Supreme Court as England.   Before the British passed their own restrictive firearms laws, the most restrictive law in the Anglosphere was the one passed in New York City, the infamous Sullivan law of 1911. The first real...
