  • The rarely discussed support for gun rights among black voters

    Hot Air.com ^ | January 30, 2016 | JAZZ SHAW
    Gun rights is a topic which seems all too readily broken down among racial lines if you get all of your news from cable TV or the New York Times. Black Americans don’t like guns and white people are just crazy about them, right? (Or just crazy, I suppose.) But while there are some definite trends to support the stereotype, no group is ever as homogeneous as the press would have you believe. While I rarely turn to NPR for my news, I ran across an interesting interview this month conducted by Karen Grigsby Bates, speaking with one black gun...
  • Yes, The Australian Model On Gun Control Means Bans and Confiscation

    Nobody wants to take your guns. That's what most mainstream pro-gun control Democrats say ad nauseam at various rallies. There's also the "I support the Second Amendment, but…" that advocates of gun control say prior to offering some pie-in-the-sky policy proposals that usually venture into bans on so-called assault rifles, limiting magazine sizes, or an all-out ban on semi-automatic firearms. That's essentially a gun ban. Both Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama have praised the Australian-model of gun control, which the National Rifle Association decided to explain at length in a recent video. It deals with gun buybacks, confiscation, and bans....

    Well, most of the Democratic 2016 field supports this, as do anti-gun activists, so it's no surprise that some members of Congress are trying to gut the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act in 2005 (via the Hill): Gun manufacturers could be sued by victims of gun violence under new legislation from Democrats.The Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act would roll back long-standing protections enjoyed by the gun industry that shields it from many lawsuits.The bill would make firearms manufacturers and dealers liable for harm caused by the weapons they sell. The legislation is...

The sad news comes after years of being at the forefront of the "I will not comply" movement while struggling with major health problems and hospitalizations. In addition to participating in gun transfer defiance protests and "smuggling" standard capacity magazines in states that have banned them, Vanderboegh is noted within the Second Amendment community as the architect of the "Three Percent" movement.

The problem for Bernie seems to be that he’s not used to being attacked and has little experience in how to respond. The gut level impulses of either Sanders or somebody on his staff are showing now that the pressure is on because he’s backing off on some of...

    Liberals like to talk about women’s rights but among those rights is, or should be, the second right enshrined in the Constitution’s Bill of Rights -- the right to keep and bear arms to protect one’s self. A woman’s body is her own, liberals tell us, and she has the right to choose to have an abortion. But the same liberals would deny women like Kimberly Corban the right to defend her body, and her children, with a firearm against the predators who lurk among us.

The rules he has announced are touted as “sensible gun restriction” are in fact a shameless gun grab that violate the Constitution and patient-doctor confidentiality.

    Today, Pres. Obama announced new executive orders on gun control designed to keep "mentally ill" people from buying guns - but, will they be used to prevent climate skeptics from buying firearms? Under Obama's new rules, doctors can now report people deemed "mentally ill" to the FBI so they can be denied gun licenses. As the official White House fact sheet on the new gun control regulations states (emphasis added): "Current law prohibits individuals from buying a gun if, because of a mental health issue, they are either a danger to themselves or others or are unable to manage their...

Of course, some local legislators were going to try and regulate the sale of ammunition (via Brooklyn Daily Eagle): State lawmakers from Brooklyn announced on Monday new draft legislation aimed at tightly restricting the sale of ammunition in New York. The Senate and Assembly bills were drafted in an effort to keep potential terrorists from stocking up on ammo, according to sponsors state Sen. Roxanne Persaud and Assemblymember Jo Anne Simon. The twin bills are backed by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, who worked with...

    In days of yore the Lie was 'No one is talking about Confiscation', but something has changed as of late. Such talk is now common amongst the national Socialist elite despite the lack of a shooting being prevalent in the media. It is axiomatic that one does not call for confiscation until its foundational steps are in place: Intergalactic Background Checks and Registration. The reason should be clear to everyone, people need to be fooled into registering their firearms with the solemn promise that it won't lead to confiscation. This was the case in the UK for example, were the...

    In President Obama’s hometown of Chicago on Halloween night Saturday, a robbery was thwarted when a concealed carry permit holder with a valid firearm owner’s ID card under Illinois law shot the thug dead. It showed that even in Obama’s Chicago, more guns mean less crime and, in this case, one less career criminal. It also shows that opponents’ fears that concealed carry laws will mean carnage in the streets as garden-variety disputes escalate into a proverbial gunfight at the OK Corral are false. Since the U.S. 7th Court of appeals struck down Illinois’ ban on concealed carry as unconstitutional...

Recently, my CNN colleague Mel Robbins made a startling point.

One of those came out already this week, as UCLA law professor Adam Winkler took to the pages of the Washington Post to predict that not only...

No debate was allowed, and senators did not have time to read the bill before voting it into law. The SAFE Act is a complete...

(Barack Obama made the same reference last year, by the way, though it never went anywhere.) As AP noted, this wasn’t a gun buy back program such as many states and municipalities have offered. It was mandatory confiscation with a modest cash reimbursement to soften the blow. Before moving on to the latest...

    On May 4th 2015, Richard Chambliss was arrested by the Bald Knob Police Department (BKPD) for carrying a weapon, despite Arkansas Act 746, which allows the carrying of a weapon. After realizing the open carry charge would likely not hold, a madeup charge of disorderly conduct was added. The BKPD Chief of Police, Judge, & prosecuting attorney appear to oppose Act 746 & the 2nd amendment in general. The previous police chief was fired by Mayor Mary Beth Calhoun in January 2015, possibly due to politics, & replaced him with current Police Chief Erek Balantine. Balantine had been charged with...

    If U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has his way the United Nations will be able to say if Americans are allowed to have their Second Amendment rights. He has just signed an anti-gun treaty with the United Nations that the U.S. Senate has already said it is against. The treaty Kerry signed without authorization from the Senate would create an un-Constitutional registry of all US gun buyers and would lead to the UN controlling Americans gun rights. Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday signed a controversial U.N. treaty on arms regulation, riling U.S. lawmakers who vow the Senate...

    Last year,3,000 gun rights supporters arrived in Albany to protest Gov. Andrew Cuomo's anti-gun SAFE Act. It was such a high profile event, that even today's most prolific headline maker, Donald Trump, was in attendance. While the rally was largely peaceful, participants allege that Cuomo's administration ordered state police tobully them. State police harassed attendees and confiscated their replica guns, according to groups like the Shooters Committee on Political Education: SCOPE contends Governor Cuomo and his staff orchestrated rules and regulations that were enforced by troopers in order to intimidate protesters and disrupt their demonstration. "I was there, and it...

    He may fashion himself conservative, but there's nothing traditional about the way Ted Cruz eats his bacon. In a short online video produced by IJReview titled "Making Machine-Gun Bacon with Ted Cruz," the 2016 candidate demonstrates that happiness at least at breakfast time is literally a warm gun. "There are few things I enjoy more than on the weekend cooking breakfast with the family," the Texas Republican senator says in the video. "Of course, in Texas, we cook bacon a little differently than most folks." A video montage then plays showing Cruz, an ardent supporter of gun rights,...

    Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie Saturday scolded a gun-rights activist in a testy exchange at a town hall event in Iowa, saying at one point: "Give me one. One fact. Got one?" "I'm still waiting for one fact from you, one fact about me being anti-gun," Christie told the man at a community college in Ankeny, Iowa, The Des Moines Register reports. About 120 people attended the event. The man, who only said that he was a member of the Iowa Gun Owners group, questioned Christie on a 2013 proposal for a statewide gun-owner identification program, according to the Register....

    Most sneaky and underhanded attempts I've ever seen to take away people's constitutional rights Weve often talked here about the Democratic Partys goal of making sure at least half the population is dependent on government in some way. Mitt Romney was skewered for his comment about the 47 percent, but the comment was completely valid and very pertinent because it referred to a permanent dependent class that will always vote for the party of government dependency. Thats how the Democrats intend to maintain permanent political power - by making sure that more than half the population is terrified of losing...

    ACT NOW: Fill in a form, letter text is provided, click, and your letter is delivered to your senators. [CLICK THIS LINK] Anti-gun Senators Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey just announced they want to bring back their toxic legislation stripping Americans of their gun rights without due process of law. Their legislation sought to BAN many private sales of firearms, forcing countless gun buyers to run to a dealer and submit to a background check before making their purchase. Thankfully, Senators Toomey and Manchin failed. But we can be sure that their proposal will be an infringement of Second Amendment...

    The nation's demagogues and constitutionally ignorant are using the Charleston, South Carolina, AME church shooting to attack the Second Amendment's "right of the people to keep and bear Arms." A couple of years ago, President Barack Obama said, "I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations." That's a vision shared by many Americans, namely that the Constitution's framers gave us the Second Amendment to protect our rights to go deer and duck hunting, do a bit of skeet shooting, and protect ourselves against criminals. That this vision is so widely...

    With the high courts latest ruling on same-sex marriages, some contend the decision could lead to increased gun rights, specifically national CCW reciprocity, by using the same argument. Friday the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the Fourteenth Amendment requires a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and recognize those sanctioned by other states. No longer may this liberty be denied, Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the majority in the landmark decision that arguably made same sex marriage a reality in the 13 remaining states that continued to ban the practice. With similar...

    I may have had my own disputes with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker on issues regarding subsidies and energy policy, but I have to offer a tip of my hat to the man on this one. If there was ever a moment in time when every Republican in the country was in danger of running to the shadows on the rights of gun owners, it’s now. But not Walker. He’s signing two new bills into law today which further buttress his constituents Second Amendment rights just as the rest of the nation is focused on South Carolina. (WaPo) Wisconsin Gov....
