  • Democrat Congresswoman Says NRA Membership A Domestic Security Threat

    08/16/2017 1:00:12 PM PDT · by PROCON · 36 replies ^ | Aug. 15, 2017 | AWR Hawkins
    Late last week, U.S. Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., tweeted that the NRA is increasingly becoming a domestic security threat. Her exact words: I'm just going to say it. #NRA & @DLoesch are quickly becoming domestic security threats under President Trump. We can't ignore that. Rice’s proclamation does two things: First, it makes her but the latest in a long line of liberal politicians who have decided to attack the NRA instead of dealing with examples of leftist-inspired violence uncovered by the NRA. Secondly, it insults the whole of NRA's membership, as the NRA is not an abstraction but a...
  • Women’s March Blames NRA for Charlottesville ‘Act of Terror’

    Feminists can’t wait to find any reason, no matter how far-fetched, to justify their activism. Behold the feminists behind the Women’s March. On August 14, the facebook page for the Women’s March reshared the NRA video that sparked their 17 mile march in July. The video was captioned with the words, “If you didn’t get why we protested the NRA, watch this ad. The act of terror in #Charlottesville is the clenched fist of truth they called for.” Nowhere in the video are supremacists or racists mentioned. And it’s worth mentioning that Heather Heyer, who was killed protesting the white...

    Gun ads have changed with the times. Political correctness is certainly not the name of the game in these classic pieces of gun marketing. It was just plain old fashion advertising back in the day. Hammer the hammer? Lawyers wouldn’t come within a football field of this one. Of course, hammering on a vintage revolver probably is a bad idea anyway…Oh no, that guy is teaching his son how to hunt, you say? Where are their iphones, video games and couch? Well, buddy, this is how a father is supposed to raise his son to be a man, not a...

    A U.S. House member called the National Rifle Association and one of its chief spokeswomen a threat to national security. Rep. Kathleen Rice, New York Democrat, appeared to be responding to NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch noting that Philando Castile was in possession of marijuana when police shot the motorist dead. According to her next tweet five minutes later, that makes the NRA a “domestic security threat.” “I’m just going to say it. #NRA & @DLoesch are quickly becoming domestic security threats under President Trump. We can’t ignore that,” Ms. Rice said.

    Image from For years, I have been writing the urban black community is a natural place to recruit Second Amendment activists. The people there are those most in need of guns for self defense.  John Lott came to the same conclusion with academic studies of who benefits most from concealed carry laws. Second Amendment activists have long said that firearms training increases responsibility and maturity. It has worked in rural areas. It should work in urban centers. Maj Toure decided to take that concept and run with it.  Maj is one of a number of black firearms activists...

    Will a society that has long turned its back on armed self-defense ever be able to find its way back? For a while after Sept. 11, 2001, a hideous question would flit uninvited across the back of my mind. “If they can do that,” I would wonder, “what can’t they do?” If I allowed it to, another inquiry would swiftly join the first: “If the Twin Towers were rendered as easy a target as they were, then what institution can truly be deemed to be safe?” Or, put another way: If they could hit that, what couldn’t they hit? America,...
  • Watch: Dana Loesch of the NRA Calls Out the New York Times

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    Popular Conservative pundit and NRA spokeswoman, Dana Loesch, has released a new video calling out the New York Times for their bias, dishonesty and subservient compliance with the Democrat party. She berates them for being complicit with their “Democrat Overlords” and lets them know that the NRA now firmly has them in their sites. The NRA has in recent history been very politically active; casting their support for candidates is often a good indicator of the candidate’s likely success or failure, but to actually target a News Agency is quite a big leap. And this isn’t a one-off. Just last...

    Well, we now know what occupies this clown’s mind. – After the magnificent NRA spokesman Dana Loesch said the organization plans to “fisk” the NYTimes, fake Times reporter Adam Goldman got on Twitter in a panic and wailed that the NRA wanted to sexually assault his newspaper. Mr. Goldman admitted he thought Ms. Loesch had said “fist”. The word “fisk” is a new media term for going through the fake media reports line by line and refuting them. Odd that the Millenial Mr. Goldman is unfamiliar with that word. But then, he obviously has other things on his mind. Oh,...

    National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch has seen Anthony Scaramucci‘s previous comments about guns, and it would seem she’s not very impressed.Shortly after Scaramucci was confirmed as the new White house Communications Director, he went on a Twitter-deletion spree where he erased some of the critical comments he previously made about President Trump. Scaramucci said he was doing this out of “full transparency,” though he also deleted other tweets where he contradicted Trump and mainstream conservatives when it comes to topics like climate change and abortion. On Saturday, the day after he became Trump’s communications director, he announced on Twitter...

    The so-called Women's March, which should be called the March of Liberal Women Only, has called out radio host and NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch for doing promo ads depicting the importance of firearms in protecting our liberties against criminals and anarchists while chiding the hypocrisy of the left on this issue. The Women's March supports abortion as part of the right of women to control their own bodies. Well, if women are in control of their own bodies, why can't they protect those bodies with a firearm? A gun in the hand of a trained and truly empowered woman is...

    National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch on Friday appeared to criticize newly named White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci’s opinions on gun control. Loesch resurfaced a tweet Scaramucci sent in December 2012, in which he said he was opposed to legislation that blocked “sensible gun laws.” “I don’t support that legalization, never had, I have always been for stronger gun control laws,” Scaramucci said in the tweet.

    They use their guns to assassinate black people. They use their schools to funnel black students through a school-to-prison pipeline. They use their state institutions, bought politicians, business conglomerates and white-supremacist domestic terrorists to incite violence over and over again. And then they use their new president to enact a law-and-order administration. All to make them shoot first, to make them ask questions later, make them scream, “I thought he had a gun in his hand” and “I feared for my life” and “he matched the description of a suspect” and “she was threatening us.” To shoot and kill Philando...

    The Hill ^ | July 14, 2017 | John R Lott Jr
    The Women’s March protest today at NRA headquarters was partially sparked by false allegations that the organization hasn’t defended Philando Castile — an African American and concealed handgun permit holder shot by Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez. While the March’s co-president, Tamika Mallory, demands that the NRA defend Castile's Second Amendment rights, she ignores statements that do just that by the gun group's female and black spokespersons. Perhaps the Women’s March organizers don't really want the NRA to be seen defending gun rights for blacks or any other minority groups. Rather, they want people to think of the NRA as...

    An ongoing media battle between the National Rifle Association and Black Lives Matter continues unabated with a new ad on the incitement of “gun-toting racists.” Anger over an NRA ad with spokesperson Dana Loesch sparked a campaign by political activists in June to have it removed from social media. In addition to a planned Women’s March on the NRA’s headquarters for July 14, Black Lives Matter has released a YouTube video criticizing cops and “racists” who may be inspired by the NRA. “We’re talking about our lives here. When the NRA issues a public call to their constituents inciting violence...

He began by first stating that, “the right has been out of step with America for a long time.” This naturally prompted the question by Tur as to why Republicans then control the presidency and Congress. Dean answered by labeling far-right Trump voters as people “with guns that want to shoot up the place” and the NRA as a “white supremacist organization.” Tur only offered a tepid condemnation...

    While the National Rifle Association (NRA) has long insisted that allowing Americans to carry guns make communities safer, an analysis of nearly 40 years’ worth of data has found that is not necessarily true. A Stanford Law School professor, John Donohue, and his team analyzed crime data from 1977 to 2014 and didn’t find evidence that areas where more Americans carry guns enjoy enhanced public safety or less crime. On the contrary, the researchers discovered that states that have enacted so-called right-to-carry (RTC) concealed handgun laws have experienced higher rates of violent crime than states that did not adopt those...

    I could never say the things about Mika Brzezinksi that Donald Trump said the other day in a tweet. I was brought up to believe that a man never insults a woman in public (or in private, for that matter). Yet you have to admit it was a deliciously aggressive micturition by the president on the progressive political press. Aggressiveness has been missing for too long on the right. It seems that no matter how far the left sinks in their attacks on Republicans, the right can never seem to bring itself to fight back. Mika started it with her...

On the surface this is a recruitment video for the National Rifle Association. But what you are really about to see is a call for white supremacy and armed insurrection, each word and image deliberately chosen to stir the feral instincts of troubled souls...
