  • Malkin: Hey, Gun-Grabbers: Hands Off My Kids Lego Weapons

    The gun-control lobby has a new target: Your childrens Lego sets. A new "study" touted by libs decries the prevalence of weapons in the brick construction kits: I kid you not. The gun-grabbers have their panties in a twist over harmless fantasy play with teeny-tiny plastic parts. LEGO building kits are becoming increasingly violent as toy manufacturers are engaged in an arms race to appeal to children, a New Zealand study says. Researchers at the University of Canterbury concluded from research that examined LEGO catalogues from 1973 to 2015 that weaponry is now included in 30 per cent of...

    It does feel rather invasive when Im asking the question, Stein told LifeZette. She said the American Academy of Pediatrics requests that doctors ask the question, which is on intake forms for new patients and regular checkups. She does so in order to comply. It has become more prevalent, she said. You feel uncomfortable whether you do it or not. It truly feels like youre getting into the parents business.

    Chelsea Clinton: Gun Control Opportunity on Supreme Court With Scalia Gone Chelsea Clinton said Thursday at an event in Maryland that there is now an opportunity for gun control legislation to pass the Supreme Court since Justice Antonin Scalia passed away. It matters to me that my mom also recognizes the role the Supreme Court has when it comes to gun control. With Justice Scalia on the bench, one of the few areas where the Court actually had an inconsistent record relates to gun control, Clinton said. Sometimes the Court upheld local and state gun control measures as being compliant...

    Gun control supporters will no doubt be all aflutter about a new book that tries to validate one of their longtime favorite theories, while appearing to help their preferred presidential candidate appeal to anti-capitalist voters within the Democratic Party. The theory, which makes perfect sense to voters who believe that demand is driven by supply, is, as the Washington Post describes it, that [g]uns in America were no big deal until big business made us love them. The book, The Gunning of America: Business and the Making of American Gun Culture, points its accusatory finger at the Winchester Repeating...

    americanthinker.com ^ | 4/9/2016 | David Deming
    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...

It was an excellent meeting that allowed us to explore many of the issues that I would raise with any nominee to the Supreme Court as well as some of the criticisms that have been levied against him.

    Throughout the interior West, states in a belt from Montana to New Mexico are looking for ways to lower their highest-in-the-nation suicide rates, although gun-specific initiatives are a touchy topic. In Montana, with the highest rate, suicide prevention coordinator Karl Rosston acknowledges some frustration as the toll rises, including the recent deaths of several teenagers who used guns from their own homes. People are afraid were trying to take away guns, which is not the case, Rosston said. I understand the sensitivity of it, but Ive got to ask the questions when we have kids who shoot themselves.

    This feature appears in the April 16 issue of NRA Americas 1st Freedom, one of the official journals of the National Rifle Association. In an attack that is unprecedented in our lifetimes, the destruction of the Second Amendment-protected rights of all Americans has emerged as the centerpiece of Hillary Clintons presidential campaign. If elected, she vows to make the Obama administrations illegal, all-out war on our values and liberty look like amateur night. Embracing the kind of mass confiscations that disarmed Australians in the 1990s, Hillary intends to take down the NRA, calling us her number one enemy. Politico summed...

    President Obamas weekly remarks Hi, everybody. One of the most consequential responsibilities our Constitution grants a President is appointing a Supreme Court Justice. The men and women who sit on the Supreme Court safeguard our rights. They ensure that ours is a system of laws, not of men. And theyre given the essential task of applying the principles written into our founding documents to the most challenging questions of today. So this is a duty I take very seriously. It requires me to set aside short-term politics in order to maintain faith with our founders. And on Wednesday, after weeks...

A letter from former President Bill Clinton disclosed just days before the Ohio primary is causing Ohio Gov. John Kasich problems on the campaign trail. Kasich tells GOP voters he can get things done by working with Democrats but also stresses he is a defender of the 2nd Amendment. The letter from Clinton shows Kasich made a deal to restrict the Second Amendment rights of American on one of the most critical votes on guns ever, according to...

    The Barrett .50 caliber rifle is a powerful gun. Widely used in the military, its rounds can "penetrate light armor, down helicopters, destroy commercial aircraft, and blast through rail cars," according to a report from the Violence Policy Center, a gun safety group. The Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence describes .50 caliber rifles like the Barrett as "among the most destructive weapons legally available to civilians in the United States." And as of Wednesday, the Barrett .50 caliber is now the official state rifle of Tennessee, joining an illustrious roster of other state symbols including the raccoon (state wild...

"My view on gun legislation is this: You will not solve this problem state by state. You need a 50-state solution, and we better come up with one fast," Shumlin said last week at Politico's Sixth Annual State Solutions Conference [1] at the Microsoft Innovation and Policy Center in Washington, D.C. Shumlin pushed for a "50-state solution" despite coming from a rural state where guns are commonly used for hunting.

    Lawmakers in at least four states are pushing bills to force gun owners to register with, and buy liability insurance from, casualty insurers. So far, politicians have proposed imposing these mandates through state laws in Hawaii, New Hampshire and New York, and through city ordinance in Los Angeles. The bills are similar to legislation proposed last year in Congress by Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., whose "Firearm Risk Protection Act" would require gun owners to provide proof of liability insurance before purchasing a firearm and subject gun owners who fail to maintain insurance to fines up to $10,000, Insurance Business America...

    As we have reported several times in the past (including here and here), the Veterans Administration (VA) has been reporting to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) the identities of its beneficiaries who have been assigned a "fiduciary" to manage their benefits. The VA claims that such determinations constitute an "adjudication of mental defectiveness" under federal law, thereby prohibiting the beneficiary (presumptively for life) from acquiring or possessing firearms. The NRA has for several years been supporting legislation to correct this unjustified infringement on Second Amendment rights, including the Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act (H.R. 2001, Rep.

    The House of Representatives concluded a tense debate Thursday by voting 250-169 to end a controversial Obama administration program called Operation Choke Point. Critics say the secretive program, run by the Department of Justice, has been used to target politically unpopular industries such as gun sellers. "We're elated," Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-Mo., one of the bill's co-sponsors, told The Daily Signal after the vote. "We've been working on this for two and a half years--we've been lied to, put off and dissed by the different regulatory agencies, and we've prevailed."Operation Choke Point was designed by the Justice Department in...
  • The Ultimate Goal of the Antigun Movement

    The ultimate goal of the antigun movement is this: the universal elimination of civilian firearms’ ownership and possession. This is true and incontrovertible. Everything the antigun movement does is directed to the attainment of that goal. Nothing the antigun movement does diverges from the path to that goal. When asked to admit the truth of the assertion, the antigun movement, and its sounding board, the mainstream corporate media, will deny it, curtly and vehemently. But, the antigun movement’s actions belie its blunt denial. Realization of the movement’s goal amounts to de facto repeal of the fundamental right of the people...

But now out of frustration at the lack of ‘progress’ in destroying out rights they have dropped the mask and are now calling for full on repeal of the second amendment, gun bans and outright confiscation.

    This Thanksgiving, the Obama administration wants Americans to talk about why Congress won’t pass more gun control – but not about Obama’s foreign policy failures. During the White House press briefing, Press Secretary Josh Earnest continued to press a narrative set up by gun control activists in response to the terrorist attacks in Paris. “As people sitting around the Thanksgiving table talking about these issues as they should and I’m sure they will all across the country, I hope that’s a question that will be raised and asked by members around the table,” Earnest said, referring to a bill...

    Alonza Gonzalez was turning right near 59 and FM 762 several months ago but just recently received the dash camera video after he filed public records requests. "Just because I have a handgun on me and a license to carry should not be a big deal, but that is what made it the turning point," Gonzalez said... ...Seconds later, Gonzalez was arrested: "You're under arrest for your traffic violations." During an interview at his Rosenberg home, Gonzalez told Channel 2 he thinks if he didn't have a gun, things would have ended differently. "If I didn't have my firearm on...

    The recent mass shooting in Oregon has brought the seemingly endless debate on gun control back into the national spotlight. Are we, as some insist, in the midst of a gun violence crisis? Gun control advocates would certainly have you think so. [...] A quick look into the facts reveals an entirely different picture. According to the FBI, in the past two decades, violent crime has been falling almost continuously. In 2013, the number of violent crimes perpetrated was 37 percent lower than it was just two decades earlier. ...

  • The Great Gun Control Con

    Mrs. Clinton’s latest TV commercial starts with her saying, “This epidemic of gun violence knows no boundaries.” A clever phrase, and a key part of the Great Gun Control Con, “epidemic of gun violence” proclaims a rapid increase in “gun violence” (as though someone robbed, raped or murdered is any less violated if some other tool is used). Never does one see a reporter jump up to challenge this basic premise. In fact, the rate of crimes with guns has declined. Not by 5 or 10 percent, but by nearly half in only 20 years. That should be cause for...

    Police chiefs from across the United States called on Monday for universal background checks for firearms purchases, saying opinion polls consistently show that most Americans support such restrictions. The proliferation of firearms is one of the factors behind a rise in homicide rates in many U.S. cities this year, according to senior law enforcement officials at the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in Chicago.

    Some have a hard time accepting that criminals can be deterred from committing crimes. They dont believe that potential mass shooters have second thoughts when faced with the prospect of armed citizens who can fight back. They seem to think that everyday Americans cant help stop attacks. But it is getting hard to ignore that mass public shooters keep choosing to attack locations where victims cant defend themselves. Its little wonder that gun-control advocates resort to desperate tactics. There have been a series of articles from Politico, the Huffington Post, Slate, and the New York Daily News with similar...

The mayors call to arms came after several weeks in which the capital was rocked by several stabbing incidents as well as rock and Molotov cocktail attacks. The focus of violence was in and around the Old City and its Temple Mount compound. In an interview with Army Radio,...

    Each time one of these mass shootings happen, the gun-control freaks inch a little bit closer to outright insanity. Since we decided as a country that the big story from the Charleston murders (somehow?) centered around the Confederate flag, these liberals have been chomping at the bit to get back to their favorite cause. The shooting in Oregon gave them their opportunity. This time around, they are making some very strange suggestions. One of the strangest came from Linda Stasi at the New York Daily News. She doesnt just want to crusade for gun control; she wants the U.S. State...
