  • How Unhinged Media Bias Cost Me My Job(NRA connection)

    My column stood against the ill thought out comparison of the NRA to ISIS by George Kennedy, University of Missouri Columbia Journalism School professor emeritus, in his column entitled "The NRA is a Danger to Us All." While the article defended the NRA, it also called for introspection and a self-policing in an industry that is currently held in a monopoly of singular leftist ideology. Instead of making a clarification, the Post Dispatch yielded to whiny snowflakes who could not bear the thought of my opinion existing within the papers august pages.

    “Talk about Russia undermining our elections. They did it. Thisssss…ssss….” began Nancy Pelosi, and it went downhill from there. Speaking at the hilariously-named Peter J. Peterson financial summit this week, the House minority leader literally seemed to hiss about Russia – a scapegoat which Democrats are still frantically trying to pin their 2016 Presidential election loss on. But then, her embarrassment got worse. Pelosi appeared to believe the NRA – the National Rifle Association – is a department of intelligence in the Federal government. “The uh…director of the FBI or the DNI, the Director of National Intelligence, or the NRA….person...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) appeared to confuse the National Rifle Association with the National Security Agency during remarks Tuesday at the Peter G. Peterson Foundation's 2017 Fiscal Summit. While being interviewed by CNN's Dana Bash, Pelosi discussed the ongoing investigation into whether there was collusion between Donald Trump's campaign and the Russians, and whether he may have obstructed justice, according to NTK Network. "To have a president say, if he did, to the director of the FBI, or the DNI, the Director of National Intelligence, or the NRA person that—um, uh, that they should not go forward,...

    A conservative columnist who was suspended by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch after she defended the National Rifle Association from comparisons to ISIS fired back with her resignation and a series of targeted tweets. The newspaper on Friday suspended Stacy Washington after a column entitled “Guns and the Media” disputed an anti-NRA article that argued since more Americans die from guns than from ISIS, the Second Amendment advocacy group is the greater danger. “[W]hen has a member of the NRA ever decapitated, set on fire, tossed from a rooftop or otherwise terrorized another American? The linkage is not only rife with...
  • The NRA Is Selling Insurance To Gun Oowners Willing To Shoot In Self Defense

    Business Insider ^ | 5-6-2017 | Alex Yablon and Mike Spies, The Trace
    (The Trace) — First, the National Rifle Association worked to let gun owners carry firearms in public. Then it fought to pass laws that say gun carriers can open fire to stop a perceived threat, even when retreat is possible. Now that the NRA has expanded the legal right to armed self defense, it’s muscling into the niche industry that’s arisen to help Americans deal with the costly consequences of actually exercising it. This week, the group unveiled insurance plans that it says will help defray the legal costs that can arise from shooting another person. As the NRA prepares...

    ...Now I know a little about who Mr. david Frum reportedly is. But does he know who I am? Does he know who you are? I’m a member of the NRA. But you don’t have to be a member of the NRA to believe in truth, justice, and the American way. You only have to live it and be it. You can even feel it too, if you like. But, it seems some don’t understand that the Kraken has awakened. That the Genie is loose. That the Sleeper is now aware of what has been done to America. What has...

    Maybe we should be celebrating Cinco De May more like this: Whereas Batalla de Puebla (Cinco De Mayo, 1862) was inconsequential to its eventual fall to the French and to the ultimate fall of Mexico. And whereas "the Congress of the United States are unwilling, by silence, to leave the nations of the world under the impression that they are indifferent spectators of the deplorable events now transpiring in the Republic of Mexico; and they therefore think fit to declare that it does not accord with the policy of the United States to acknowledge a monarchical government, erected on the...

    One of the hits at the NRA Annual Meeting in Atlanta was the Pyramid Air gun range. It was set up in one of the meeting rooms one level up and not far from the NRA exhibit hall.While I was there, empty spaces on the firing line were filled very quickly.There were 10 stations on line and roughly twice as many air guns available as there were shooting stations.There were young, old, male, female, all sorts of shooters on the line. They seemed to exhibit the same expressions: Intense concentration followed by big grins.A wide variety of air guns were...

    Weapons could be carried, openly or concealed, at the NRA Meeting in Atlanta in 2017. Except where the Secret Service had control of the venue for President Trump's speech. As you can see, knives and numerous other items that people would not think of as weapons, such as selfie sticks and backpacks, were prohibited.This could have presented a major problem for people who had just walked a half a mile from parking to see and hear the first American President to address the NRA Annual Meeting since Ronald Reagan in 1983.Fortunately, Doug Ritter of Knife Rights had arranged a...

    Gun Watch ^ | 29 April, 2017 | Dean Weingarten
    For the last three NRA Annual Meetings, open and concealed carry have been legal and practiced on the premises.  In 2015 it was at Nashville in Tennessee. In 2016, it was at Louisville in Kentucky.  In 2017, it is in Atlanta, Georgia. Today in the press room, there were a few open carriers. From the printing that I noticed here and there, there were a significantly greater number of concealed carriers. I was one of those. The Press room was rather chilly for a Yuma, Arizona resident. I kept my jacket on.  Out on the floor, there were few...

    I drove to the NRA Meeting in Atlanta yesterday, the 26th of April, 2017.  I had been visiting family in Dallas, Texas, so it was only 800 miles. On the way, I reflected on the last time I was in Atlanta for more than a flight change. It was over 40 years ago, when I was in the Army. What happened then was not important. But what has happened in the last 40 years has been phenomenal for Second Amendment Supporters. In 1974, the Gun Control Act of 1968 was only six years old. It had not been improved...

    Michale Bloomberg's purchased gun control groups Mom's Demand Action and Everytown promised to "confront" the National Rifle Association in Atlanta (GA) during the NRA's Annual Meetings and Exhibits. It was a less than impressive event. According to an officer providing security at the event, Mom's Demand and Everytown brought just 75-100 people to Woodruff Park to "confront" the NRA, at a venue 7/10ths of a mile away from the Annual Meetings. The twinned gun control groups appear to have attempted to pad their numbers by handing out tee shirts to the many homeless people inhabiting the park, though most...

    In his speech before the National Rifle Association’s annual convention in Atlanta on Friday, President Donald Trump said he would protect the Second Amendment, and declared that freedom was “a gift from God.” “Each of these leaders knows that public officials must serve under the Constitution, not above it,” Trump said, according to Newsweek. “We all took an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States — and that means defending the Second Amendment. “

    As President Trump took the stage to champion the Second Amendment at a National Rifle Association convention on Friday, a United States senator sought to counter his message by unleashing a Twitter storm using the names, ages and pictures of gun violence victims. Senator Christopher S. Murphy, Democrat of Connecticut, who has fought for increased gun control since the 2012 school massacre in his home state, posted on Twitter on Friday morning to urge his followers not to watch Mr. Trump’s speech and instead, “think about who we are fighting for.”

    DENVER - Even during his candidacy, President Trump was seen as a gun-friendly candidate. He picked up the National Rifle Association's endorsement at the 2016 NRA convention. As Trump spoke to the NRA on Friday, there was some evidence his friendly stance towards gun owners may be leading to slowing sales. It is well documented that when gun owners feel their 2nd Amendment rights are threatened, gun sales skyrocket.

    As the first President to speak to the NRA (actually speak to them, not call them “gun nuts” or “bitter clingers”) since Ronald Reagan, Trump had some pretty big shoes to fill. While he didn’t give out many specifics, Trump did make sweeping promises to defend the Second Amendment while in the White House. He also gave an ominous warning. During his speech, Trump discussed the 2020 Presidential election. While it might seem a little premature given that he is just barely approaching his first 100 days as President, but when you’re defending the Constitution, you need to be prepared...

    THE PRESIDENT: Thank you, Chris, for that kind introduction and for your tremendous work on behalf of our Second Amendment. Thank you very much. (Applause.) I want to also thank Wayne LaPierre for his unflinching leadership in the fight for freedom. Wayne, thank you very much. Great. (Applause.) I'd also like to congratulate Karen Handel on her incredible fight in Georgia 6. (Applause.) The election takes place on June 20th. And, by the way, on primaries, let's not have 11 Republicans running for the same position, okay? (Laughter.) It's too nerve-shattering. She's totally for the NRA and she's totally for...

But the point is, he reasserted it yet again, which, remember, there aren’t a whole lot of members of Congress who want to build the wall. Senators, as I reported yesterday, are openly laughing about the idea. “It’ll never happen. You believe Trump will build this wall?” Five or six of them laughing about it.

    President Donald Trump warned attendees at the National Rifle Association's annual convention on Friday that they probably won't like the Democrats running for president in 2020. He used a derogatory nickname to specifically call out Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). "I have a feeling that in the next election, you're going to be swamped with candidates, but you’re not going to be wasting your time," said Trump, the first sitting president to address the NRA's convention since Ronald Reagan. "You'll have plenty of those Democrats coming over and you’re going to say, 'No, sir. No, thank you. No, ma'am.' Perhaps 'ma'am.'...
