  • Amid NYC Terror Coverage MSNBC Panel Complains About Guns in America, Trump

    12/11/2017 10:57:59 AM PST · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | December 11, 2017 | Nicholas Fondacaro
    As information was still coming in regarding Monday’s attempted terror attack in the New York City subway, an MSNBC panel discussing the news ridiculously shifted the topic to outrage over guns and gun crime in the U.S. And on top of that, they bemoaned how President Trump would try to make the attack an immigration issue to support his temporary travel ban.The person responsible for kicking off the gun discussion was former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton. After commenting on how few terror attacks have hit the U.S. since 9/11 (missing a few as he rattled them off), he opined: We will continue to...
  • MSNBC Republican: 'You're a Bad Parent If You Have a Gun in the House'

    MRC NewsBusters ^ | 10/04/2017 | Brad Wilmouth
    On Tuesday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, frequent MSNBC Republican guest David Frum lamented over the trend towards loosening gun laws -- even after high-profile mass shootings -- and then predicted that it would be necessary to convince gun owners that "you're a bad parent if you have a gun in the house" to get the public to support more gun restrictions. After Frum had spent time lamenting that since the Newtown school shootings in 2012, there have been a loosening of gun laws in many states, host O'Donnell followed up by suggesting that most Americans agree with a...
  • NRA-Republican Backed Bill Makes it Easier for Feds to Disarm Citizens

    On Wednesday, the Republican controlled house voted to further federalize gun laws in this country. While Ryan McMaken has noted the danger in further centralizing gun legislation, there is another deeply troubling aspect to this bill: it expands the ability of the Federal government to restrict Americans right to bear arms. During the legislative process, the NRA supported merging the bill aimed at nationalizing concealed carry permits with another piece of legislation aimed at fixing the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS.) Obviously this legislation was inspired by the failure of the US Air Force to report the criminal...

    Associated Press ^ | Dec 6, 2017 6:24 PM EST | Matthew Daly and Richard Lardner
    Republicans rammed a bill through the House on Wednesday that would make it easier for gun owners to legally carry concealed weapons across state lines, the first significant action on guns in Congress since mass shootings in Nevada and Texas killed more than 80 people. The House approved the bill, 231-198, largely along party lines. Six Democrats voted yes, while 14 Republicans voted no. The measure would allow gun owners with a state-issued concealed-carry permit to carry a handgun in any state that allows concealed weapons. It now goes to the Senate. Republicans said the reciprocity measure, a top priority...
  • Liberals Freak Out As House Approves Nationwide Concealed Carry Reciprocity

    SHTF Plan ^ | 1-30-2017 | Mac Slavo
    The House Judiciary Committee voted 19-11 late Wednesday for the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. This bill would amend the federal criminal code to allow the concealed carry of guns across state lines for all concealed carry permit holders. Should this bill become a law, states will not be able to impose their individual requirements for a concealed carry license on those who have a license to conceal in a different state. The left is already terrified. Republicans rejected Democratic amendments that would ban violent offenders from qualifying under the law (because violent offenders cannot obtain a concealed carry...
  • Fusion GPS Founder Told Congress That Russians Had Infiltrated The NRA

    The Daily Caller ^ | 11-22-2017 | Chuck Ross
    The co-founder of the opposition research firm behind the Trump dossier testified to Congress earlier this month that he believed Russian operatives have infiltrated the National Rifle Association. Glenn Simpson, a founding partner of Fusion GPS, casually suggested in an interview with the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence that the gun rights group had been breached, a source familiar with the matter told The Daily Caller. Fox News first reported about Simpsons testimony on Tuesday night. TheDCs source said that Simpson suggested the NRA-Russia connection in response to a line of questions from committee Democrats who asked whether any...

    An NRA commentator and former Navy SEAL stands up for the right to bear an AR-15 despite the negative sentiment that media is portraying the AR. Former Naval special warfare operator Dom Rasso speaks in the short video from the National Rifle Association. Rasso says if the founding fathers had known about the AR-15 they wouldnt have rewritten the Second Amendment they wouldve fortified it in stone because they knew the only way for us to stay free was by having whatever guns the bad guys have. Supporting that the AR platform is accurate and reliable, Rasso also adds,...
  • Global outcry as Trump allows big game hunters (like his sons) (trunc)

    Daily Mail ^ | Nov 16, 2017 | TARIQ TAHIR
    The Trump administration has reversed a ban on the importing of trophies from elephants killed in Zimbabwe and Zambia, to outcry from wildlife organisations across the world. The move overturns the ban put in place by the Obama administration in 2014 and is a heavy blow to the international campaign to end the ivory trade, whose backers include Prince Harry and Prince William. It also comes after the president's sons, Donald Jr and Eric Trump, were heavily criticized in 2012 after being photographed with a leopard and other big game kills including an elephant. Though elephants are listed as endangered...

    Once again America has fallen victim to violent attacks committed against innocent people, first in Las Vegas, then on the streets of New York, and most recently in a small Texas church. And once again politicians and civic leaders call for prayers in support of the victims of a mass killing, while citizens place bouquets of flowers, sympathy cards, and little Teddy Bears at the site of the attacks. As expected of our elected officials, politicians in Washington will wring their hands, pontificate, and then accomplish nothing in the way of protecting the American people. Talking heads and other experts...

    The synchronized leftist response to this latest attack on normal Christians was pre-planned, and it didnt matter that this time it was another militant atheist weirdo instead of an ISIS-loving foreigner. The memes and the lies were all prepped and ready, and the villain was already chosen. No surprise once again, it was you, the normal American who keeps and bears arms to protect yourself, your family, your community and your Constitution. But this time it didnt go the way they wanted. Sure, they were giddy at first the liberals got to trash people of faith for praying,...
  • Why There is Inaction on Gun Laws

    11/08/2017 10:47:08 AM PST · by Kaslin · 37 replies ^ | November 8, 2017 | Jonah Goldberg,
    Among the many problems with the Great Gun Debate these days is that the pro-gun crowd wants to make it a culture-war battle and the anti-gun crowd wants to pretend that it isn't. On public policy grounds, the pro-gun people have the better arguments. Firearm homicides have declined since the 1990s despite the loosening of gun laws. Almost none of the remedies proposed in the wake of mass shootings would have actually prevented those crimes (though had so-called bump stocks been banned -- as they should be -- fewer would have died in the Las Vegas shooting last month). Indeed,...

    Press Democrat ^ | 8 Nov 2017 | NICK RAHAIM
    I had a pistol that was destroyed in the Tubbs fire. How do I cancel the registration of a gun that no longer exists? Short answer: With the California Department of Justice. But local law enforcement can help. The wildfires that destroyed thousands of homes in Sonoma County also damaged or destroyed many guns. While a firearm may no longer be functional, local law enforcement asks residents to bring them to the Santa Rosa Police Department or Sonoma County Sheriffs Office for disposal. If the damaged gun has a visible serial number and its make and model are discernible, local...

    During the National Rifle Associations meeting with Vice President Joe Biden and the White House gun violence task force, the vice president said the Obama administration does not have the time to fully enforce existing gun laws. Jim Baker, the NRA representative present at the meeting, recalled the vice presidents words during an interview with The Daily Caller: And to your point, Mr. Baker, regarding the lack of prosecutions on lying on Form 4473s, we simply dont have the time or manpower to prosecute everybody who lies on a form, that checks a wrong box, that answers a question inaccurately....

    The Sutherland Springs man who came face-to-face with a madman who killed 26 people in a Texas church says God protected him and gave him the skills he needed to stop more deaths. The former NRA instructor engaged Devin Patrick Kelley as he exited the church. "I'm no hero. I'm not," Stephen Willeford told 40/29 News reporter Joshua Cole in a video interview on Monday. "I think my God, my Lord, protected me and gave me the skills I needed to do what needed to be done." [Facebook video] "I just wish I could have gotten there faster," Willeford said...

    MSNBCs Joy Reid told her fans Monday that the National Rifle Association has machinations of building an America where packs of warlords can kill at will. The host of AM Joy reacted to Sundays church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, by claiming NRA members over 5 million Second Amendment advocates seek the creation of private armies operating outside the rule of law. The comments came one day after 26-year-old Devin Kelley killed 26 churchgoers and wounded another 20 in a rampage reportedly linked to a domestic dispute. Americans are living like packs of warlords, with heavily armed people...

    The National Rifle Association is reportedly being investigated by New York regulators. No, its not that the state has finally figured out a way to undermine the organizations strong Second Amendment stance or its effectiveness throughout the nation in blocking infringements on our right to keep and bear arms. No, its something far more insidious. Theyre concerned the NRA is selling their Carry Guard insurance without a license. New York regulators launched an investigation into the National Rifle Associations role in the self-defense insurance program that bears its name. The probe by the states Department of Financial Services will focus...

    We are witnesses to the most ruthless attack on a president exclaims Conservative political commentator and generally terrifying person Dana Loesch in a new Twitter video ad by the National Rifle Association. The unflinching, nearly unblinking delivery of Danas hyperbole in the video is introduced by an ominous sub-frequency and intercut with clips of the various enemies and saboteurs of the President and by Danas/the NRAs logic, America. The thing thats seemingly implied in the video is that gun-owners and NRA members are the last line of defense for Americas most sacred institutions and more importantlyof coursethe Trump presidency.
  • The NRA's Dangerous Alternative to a Bump Stock Ban

    Thomas Massie, the Kentucky Republican who leads the Congressional Second Amendment Caucus, and Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat who is one of the Senate's most persistent gun controllers, do not agree on much. But the congressman and the senator both see the folly of the National Rifle Association's position on bump stocks, the firearm accessories that Stephen Paddock used in his deadly October 1 attack on country music fans in Las Vegas. The NRA opposes a legislative ban on bump stocks but wants the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to reconsider the question of whether they are legal....

Another tweet: Another guy created a string of social media accounts, posted photos of my house, threatened to rape me to death. Oh, how nice. This is the fringe left the same...
