  • Is The NRA The Only Civil Rights Group In America That Still Matters?

    Bearing Arms ^ | 20 Nov, 2015 | Bob Owens
    The mainstream media is—once again—carrying out a nakedly partisan attack on the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, the National Rifle Association. This time the mainstream “news” organizations are attempting to assert that the NRA is a bunch of radicals that is so “gun crazy” that they even support terrorists buying guns. The Daily News made that absurd claim earlier in the week, and the network of Dan Rather is doing so today. Reality, of course, is something quite different. The National Rifle Association is both a firearms training organization and a civil rights group, and opposes long-running Democrat attempts to...

    Associated Press ^ | Nov 21, 2015 3:24 AM EST | Alan Fram and Michael Biesecker
    Congressional Democrats are trying to build support for an effort to bar gun purchases by terror suspects, hoping to take advantage of the same public anxieties about security that gave Republicans a ringing House victory. The Democratic push seems likely to fall victim to opposition from the National Rifle Association and congressional gun-rights backers, chiefly Republicans, who have smothered firearms curbs for years. If the Republicans who control Congress block votes on the proposal, Democrats hope to profit politically by winning sympathy from angry voters. ...

    The horrible attacks in Paris were against soft targets -- cafes and music halls. The one attack that failed was because of security outside the Stade de France. Similarly, in the United States, there are American hard targets that ISIS dare not attack. Here are five. 5. States With High Concealed-Carry Usage The idiots in ISIS probably don't realize that in the United States, every state has different laws when it comes to firearms. These varying laws have a direct impact on public safety. A single armed citizen with a concealed .38 or 9mm, particularly in close quarters, can...

    NY Daily News ^ | November 18, 2015 | Cameron Joseph and Larry Mcshane
    The NRA -- and their gun-loving Republican cohorts -- are refusing once more to stop terrorists intent on getting armed in the U.S.A. A legal loophole allows suspected terrorists on the government's no-fly list to legally buy guns, but a bill to fix that will likely wither on the vine. The federal Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act, even in the wake of last week’s terrorist killing of 129 people in Paris, remains a long shot due to its rabid pro-gun opponents. "Anything which they feel restricts the use or the ability to retain a gun they’re opposed...
  • The right to Self-Defense is a HUMAN RIGHT, not simply an American one

    11/15/2015 9:29:55 AM PST · by Red in Blue PA · 16 replies
    The right of self-defense is a HUMAN RIGHT, not simply an American Right enshrined in the 2A. If someone walked up to a citizen in France and punched them in the nose, that person would have the right to punch back instead of simply taking the beating. If their family was being beaten up would they have to stand there and watch without interceding? Force is to be met with equal force when one or one's family is attacked. This example proves that is so. To do otherwise is repugnant to any citizen of this planet. Yet force is not...

The article, which can be read here ( , claims Wayne LaPierre's video "How To Stop Violent Crime" inaccurately identifies De'Eris Brown, a thug who murdered a 9-year-old girl, and uses this to promote an "NRA is racist" narrative. Not only was this claim patently false, but it exposed writer Mike Weisser's own bigotry and bias in the process.

    How we educate our youth plays a critical role in whether they are active, engaged and demanding citizens-such as democracy requires. The famed Brazilian education advocate Paulo Freire railed against the "banking concept" of education, where students are filled up with knowledge. Rather, he argued, the classroom must feature dialogue between students and teachers invested in a common task of inquiry. To put it otherwise, the classroom is a microcosm of a democratic society, where students instinctively learn to behave as democratic citizens.The NRA wants us to live in fear: The demented, highly profitable and deeply cynical logic behind arming...

    Polls show that 90 percent of Americans support universal background checks for gun buyers, yet a bill mandating this died in the Senate. Evangelical Christians, however, may well be the key to shifting America’s broken political dynamic around gun rights. Right now, white evangelical Protestants are the group most likely to oppose stricter gun- control laws. They stand out as one of the few constituencies where a strong pro-life identity is tied to attitudes against any restrictions on gun ownership. Evangelicals are also one of the strongest constituencies of support for the National Rifle Association. Yet the NRA, which has...

    Barack Obama promised he wouldn't take away anyone's guns, but gun-rights alarmists have spent seven years incessantly predicting he would. From his experience, Hillary Rodham Clinton seems to have decided to skip the part of the campaign that involves placating the National Rifle Association. Recently, at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire, she was asked about adopting a federal gun control program like the one enacted in Australia in 1996, which banned automatic and semi-automatic rifles and shotguns and mandated the buyback of those already present. Some 650,000 guns were taken from citizens and destroyed. Clinton replied, "I do...
