  • Harriet Tubman Was A Gun-Toting Republican

    American Thinker ^ | April 22, 2016 | Daniel John Sobieski
    There are some knee-jerk reactions to the seemingly "political correctness run amok" move to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill, replacing President Andrew Jackson. But the replacing of the slave-owning founder of the Democratic Party with a gun-toting black Republican may spark a political debate worth having and unearth historical truths worth learning. As PJ Media described the announcement: The first woman on United States bank notes will be the famous abolitionist and Republican Harriet Tubman, Politico reported Wednesday. She will give the boot to the nation's sixth president and a major figure in the Democratic Party, Andrew Jackson,...

    If Bernie Sanders is a subsidiary of the NRA, they really should spin him off. . . On today's MTP Daily, Hillary surrogate Hakeem Jeffries, a NYC congressman and Hillary surrogate, claimed that "Senator Bernie Sanders has effectively functioned as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Rifle association for the entirety of his career." Really? Let's go to the scorecard. Sanders current NRA rating is a subterranean D-. Since 1992, he has racked up four Fs. His highest score was a C-. Kudos to Chuck Todd for reacting with incredulity: "can you really refer to him as a wholly-owned subsidiary...

    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...

    Remember when your mom used to read you the classic about the wolf and the shotgun-toting grandma? No? Well, the National Rifle Association teamed up with a conservative author to make that fairy tale happen. New gun-friendly twists on old favorites are published on the NRA's family-oriented sister site NRA Family. The group said the new stories are part of an attempt to make sure children learn how to use firearms responsibly. An editor's note on the site adds, "Have you ever wondered what those same fairy tales might sound like if the hapless Red Riding Hoods, Hansels and Gretels...

The stories, which include "Little Red Riding Hood (Has a Gun)" and the more recent "Hansel and Gretel (Have Guns)", were written by blogger and children's author Amelia Hamilton. An editor's note on the first installment in the series explains the premise, pointing out the grim and potentially unsettling nature of children's stories and questioning how the situations would be altered by a knowledge of firearms.

    The U.S. Supreme Court vacated a ruling that criminalized stun guns by excluding them from Second Amendment protections. In 2011, a Massachusetts woman, Jaime Caetano, was arrested for carrying a stun gun in her purse to protect herself from her abusive ex-boyfriend. A judge at the time ruled that Caetanos decision to carry a stun gun was illegal because the Second Amendment right to bear arms only applies to the types of weapons commonly used at the time the amendment was ratified. Last year, the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts upheld Caetanos criminal conviction, saying that a stun gun is...

    Whats fascinating about 21 centuray American politics is how many norms and givens are being stripped away on a regular basis, how perfunctory these stories are treated by the media, and how accepted it is if a party or political figure discards longstanding principles of how our government has long functioned. The change then suddenly becomes the new norm, with little resistance (which suggests American democracy in general is fragile). It is indeed unprecedented that a political party would not even MEET and put up to a vote (where they could vote down) the nominee of a President because its...

Gaffney once worked for President Ronald Reagan's Department of Defense and now runs the Center for Security Policy, a hyper-conservative think tank that promulgates theories about a Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy to infiltrate the U.S. government.

    President Obama tried to tap a moderate to fill the seat of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, but he ended up picking a fight with powerful Second Amendment groups that say Judge Merrick Garland has shown antipathy toward gun rights. In one 2000 case, Judge Garland, who sits on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, upheld a Clinton administration effort to store gun-buyers records. Later in the decade, he joined other judges in a failed bid to reconsider the landmark case that would eventually establish the Second Amendments protection of a personal right...

    With the selection of Merrick Garland, President Obama has exercised his constitutional power to nominate a justice to the Supreme Court. The Senate should now exercise its constitutional power not to act on that nominee. Garlands record as a Clinton-appointed member of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals since 1997, and as its chief judge since 2013, offers no reason to believe that his addition to the Court would provide anything other than a reliable fifth vote to the Courts liberal bloc.

However, when it comes to Barack Obama’s pick to replace Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, an unexpected synchronicity occurs … of sorts, anyway.The NRA’s legislative arm accused Obama of showing “utter contempt for the Second Amendment and law-abiding gun owners” with the nomination of Merrick Garland: “With Justice Scalia’s tragic passing, there is no longer a majority of support among the justices for...

    On the first floor of NRA headquarters, a large glass and steel building that looms over I-66 in the ambivalent suburbs of Fairfax, Virginia, exists the National Firearms Museum. It is free and open to the public. After a brief visit, I highly recommend that instead of ever going to the museum, you do what roughly 19,000 responsible gun owners do each year and shoot yourself. It’d be far less painful. The museum was initially built in 1935 and moved to Fairfax in 1998. Allegedly, it "details and examines the nearly 700-year history of firearms with a special emphasis on...

Democratic hypocrites like Sen. Chuck Schumer accuse the GOP of obstructionism, the memory of their blocking of George W. Bush nominees having faded. They, while insisting that President Obama has the Constitutional right to nominate a replacement, which he does, forget the Senate's Constitutional role to advise and consent -- or not consent.

Much of the anger is directed at the display of a pistol used by William Quantrill, a Confederate fighter who captured runaway slaves in Kansas and Missouri.

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.

In a prime-time, televised town hall meeting, Obama dismissed what he called a "conspiracy" alleging that the federal government - and Obama in particular - wants to seize all firearms as a precursor to imposing martial law. He blamed that notion on the NRA and like-minded groups that convince its members that "somebody's going...

    Washington (CNN) - The nation's largest gun rights organization declined Wednesday to send official representatives to a nationally televised town hall with President Barack Obama on gun violence -- just days after the president reignited a discussion over this controversial topic. "The National Rifle Association sees no reason to participate in a public relations spectacle orchestrated by the White House," NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam told CNN, which is moderating the live town hall Thursday evening in Virginia. The NRA strengthened its comment after initially saying the White House had "organized" the event. The NRA, the most influential gun rights group...

    Full title: Obama's Executive Gun Control: No Minimum Threshold Before Private Gun Sales Require Background Checks On January 4, the White House released a fact sheet which previews the executive gun control Obama will announce Tuesday, and it reveals there is no numerical threshold of sales that a private seller has to cross before being considered "engaged in the business of dealing in firearms."In other words, previous hints that there would be a "trigger"--a certain number of guns that a private seller had to sell before being considered "engaged in the business"--are now out the window. Figures like those reported...

    Interestingly, I was mulling over whether to write on this very subject this morning when I caught up with Instapundit and discovered Eric Raymond’s essay at Armed and Dangerous. Raymond joined the National Rifle Association during the holidays despite a long reluctance to do so. Raymond explains that he’s not exactly enamored of the NRA’s political strategies, but that the times call for responsible gun owners to rally together: So, you might well ask: why am I joining an organization I'm dubious about now, when the gun-rights cause seems to be winning? Popular support for Second Amendment rights is at...

    It turns out Moses never gave Jeb Bush a rifle. The Republican presidential candidate has told crowds several times in the past year about receiving the National Rifle Association's Statesman of the Year award from Charlton Heston, the late Hollywood legend and former leader of the gun rights group who once played Moses in a movie. "You know who you're lookin' at here? You're looking at the guy who won the NRA Statesman of the Year award," Bush said last month at a town hall in Milford, N.H. "Not the Florida award. The national award. And I got a rifle...

    Jeb Bush loves talking about how Moses once gave him a gun. A staunch supporter of Second Amendment rights, Bush frequently tells the story of being honored as National Rifle Association "Statesman of the Year" and being awarded a gun by Charlton Heston. "You know who you're lookin' at here? You're looking at the guy who won the NRA Statesman of the Year award," Bush said last month at a town hall in Milford, New Hampshire. "Not the Florida award. The national award. And I got a rifle from Charlton Heston, I got a rifle from Moses." It's a similar...

    Bishop Larry Wright had been preaching for about 20 minutes on New Year's Eve when he saw the front door of his North Carolina church swing open. In marched a young disheveled man whom he'd never seen before. In one hand the man had a semi-automatic assault rifle; in the other, a magazine. He wasn't. Wright, 57, is a City Council member. But he was also a career military man a former paratrooper and drill sergeant who retired in 1997 so his training kicked in as he descended the pulpit's three steps: Was there a bullet still in the chamber?...

    A hallmark of Obama's presidency since his early days in office has been his habit of pitting American citizens against each other: Democrats vs. Republicans, blacks vs. whites, rich vs. poor, climate change alarmists vs. climate change skeptics, gay vs. straight, etc.It was shocking at first. Seven years in, it is depressingly expected of the Community-Organizer-in-Chief.In his weekly address, released Friday, Obama vowed to spend his final year in office seeking ways to impose gun control policies via executive fiat, and urged American citizens to stand up against groups like the NRA -- which, of course, is made up of...
