  • FBI releases SHOCK stats on “assault rifle” deaths; liberals TERRIFIED

    The aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting has predictably lead to liberal calls for more gun laws and more disarming of citizens with at least one liberal college professor (is that redundant?) claiming it’s time the USA ban all guns. It’s the typical knee jerk reaction and attempt to never let a tragedy go to waste. However a newly released FBI study is demonstrating that liberals are trying to ban the wrong weapons. Breitbart reports on the new FBI data and it turns the “guns are killing everybody” narrative on its ear. Turns out the gun-grabbers really ought to be...

    This is Baret Fawbush, here’s a short clip of him and his son spending some quality time together. Read the excerpt below on how he juggles training, spatial awareness, gun safety and its purpose into quality time with his child.. “Here’s my son Knox. He’s 4 years old. I REALLY want to get him into guns but the key is not to be forceful, so when he wants to go shooting with daddy, this is typically what we do. He stands behind me and holds on to me or just watches and tells me if I hit my target. You...
  • FBI: Over Four Times More People Stabbed to Death Than Killed with Rifles of Any Kind

    10/16/2017 7:11:28 PM PDT · by blueyon · 18 replies ^ | 10/16/17 | by AWR Hawkins
    The FBI Uniform Crime Report (UCR) for 2016 shows more than four times as many people were stabbed to death than were killed with rifles of any kind. And because the category of rifles covers every type of rifle, this means there would be an even greater divide between the number of people stabbed to death versus those shot to death with an AR-15 or similar rifle. According to FBI: UCR Table 12, there were approximately 374 people shot and killed with rifles of any kind. There were 1,604 people killed with “knives or cutting instruments.” Table 12 also shows...

    National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch announced Sunday on Twitter that her family had been forced to move suddenly after she received multiple death threats from gun control advocates. Loesch, a conservative commentator and syndicated talk radio host, followed the announcement of her family's move by condemning the way politically progressive society has treated not just her, but conservative women as a whole.
  • If Liberals Truly Cared About Gun Control, They Would Support Closing U.S. Borders

    10/16/2017 7:52:46 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 17 replies ^ | October 16, 2017 | Justin Haskins
    Since the tragic shooting in Las Vegas, liberals in Hollywood, Washington, D.C., and the news media have been demanding stricter gun-control laws. Some, including The New York Times’ Bret Stephens, has even called for repealing the Second Amendment as the “only way” to reform an industry “that most of the developed world rightly considers nuts.” The debate is often cast by those on the left as one between those who don’t care about murder, death, and destruction and those who want to stop it tomorrow with “common sense” gun-control laws. But upon closer examination, it’s clear liberals know the kind of...

    . . . Hospital staff told police that Jones and Yancey had been arguing while waiting for their 14-year-old son to get a procedure. Shortly after, Jones came out of the room and said Yancey had cut himself. Staff went into the room and found Yancey with lacerations to the upper body. Yancey was pronounced dead a short time later. Jones left the hospital before officers arrived on scene. . . .

    House Democrats have introduced a number of new gun control measures in the wake of a deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas.Among the proposals are HR.3962 to ban online ammunition sales, H.R. 4025 requiring gun dealers to report the sale of two or more rifles to the same person in a five-day period, and HR. 4052, which would ban magazines able to hold greater than 10 rounds.“Several of my colleagues and I have introduced commonsense legislation that, if enacted, would reduce gun violence and the tragic impact it has on our communities,” said U.S. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, the New...

    In the hypercharged partisan atmosphere that disgracefully follows any mass shooting tragedy, journalists, politicians, and anyone with an opinion spontaneously become firearms experts. Yet, as this U.S. Army combat infantry grunt can attest, these desk jockeys are no straight shooters. The Interstate 91 country music massacre is no exception. From talks of machine guns, bump stocks, “silencers” and the semantics of weapons transportation, these would-be sharpshooters are negligently off-target when it comes to the laws of modern warfare. Although reporters posing as weekend warriors insist that crazed gunman Stephen Paddock’s decision to use a bump stock made his shooting ambush...

A concealed handgun permit holder was able to react quickly. “Police told the CPL holder it was a good thing he was legally armed or he and his cousin may not be alive today.”

    On Oct. 1, a 64-year-old Nevada man opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers from a high-rise hotel in Las Vegas, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds. If you don't know his name, you can easily find it online, in print or on TV. But you won't learn it from this column. Notoriety may have been what he was after in methodically plotting the slaughter. He may have intended to outdo other mass shooters. He may have hoped his name would gain a sinister immortality. University of Alabama criminologist Adam Lankford has explained the repetition of such incidents as a...
  • If 'No One Wants to Take Our Guns,' Stop Saying the Opposite

    10/12/2017 9:20:03 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 9 replies ^ | October 12, 2017 | Larry Elder
    Almost immediately after the Las Vegas shooting came the calls for "common sense" gun control. The quest almost always begins with a reassurance that "no one wants to take away your guns." Not everyone read the memo. Nelson Shields, founder of Handgun Control, Inc., the organization that became the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, in a 1976 interview could not have been more clear about his group's goals: "Our ultimate goal -- total control of handguns in the United States -- is going to take time. My estimate is from seven to 10 years. The first problem is to...

    Whether you agree with the widely reported statistic that there have been nearly 300 mass shootings this year might depend on how you define “mass shooting.” In the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre, left-leaning media outlets have been playing fast and loose with the data on mass shootings to inflate their number and suggest that white men make up a disproportionate share of the perpetrators.

    A Columbia College Chicago professor recently posted a tweet suggesting that "toxic masculinity" is to blame for the recent mass shooting in Las Vegas. The tweet included a link to an op-ed the professor wrote in 2016 arguing that "toxic masculinity fuels mass shootings" because sexually-frustrated men rebel against domestication. Mass shootings, including the recent Las Vegas massacre, are caused by "toxic masculinity," according to a professor at Columbia College Chicago. Last week, shortly after the horrific shooting in Las Vegas, Philosophy professor Stephen Asma tweeted a link to an op-ed he had written for Aeon in 2016 arguing...
  • Nevada Gun Laws

    10/11/2017 6:22:20 AM PDT · by 7thson · 25 replies
    There is no limit on bulk purchases, amounts of ammunition, or magazine sizes. A gun dealer also does not have to comply with law enforcement; police inspections of Nevada gun shops are not allowed by state law. Many gun control activists believe the absence of regulations on dealers combined with the constant flow of tourism attribute to Nevada's bleak murder numbers. Since 2000, Nevada has had on average 27 gun related deaths per 100,000 people annually, by far the most in the US.

    Since the carnage in Las Vegas, there's been a lot of talk on TV and commentary in print about gun control. Not just any gun control of course, but "reasonable" and "common sense" gun control. But since words matter, it matters how you define "reasonable" and "common sense." And on this, liberals and conservatives might as well be inhabitants of two different planets. As Daniel Henninger succinctly put it in his Wall Street Journal column: "Progressives embrace the benign, while conservatives fear the malign. Liberals say, give peace a chance. Conservatives say, Annie, get your gun." To that I'll add,...

    BALTIMORE — The mass shooting in Las Vegas renews the country's long-running conflict over guns. Should there be more regulation? Should there be bans on high-powered weapons? There's also a question of how secrecy cloaks ownership records. If police get the license plate number on a car, they can easily find out who owns it. But it's a whole different story when it comes to guns. For 30 years, Congress has kept a veil over the nation's gun supply. Who are the owners? How many guns do people have? In May, city leaders in Baltimore touted the arrival of the...
