    I periodically share polling data on issues ranging from which nations most support capitalism to the degree to which government is a leading cause of stress.Or how about the poll of Americans on the best and worst Presidents since World War II, or the survey data on what share of government spending is wasted.Today, we’re going to expand on that collection by reviewing some potential good news about attitudes of young people and attitudes about guns. But this isn’t about how young people owning guns, or how they feel about guns.Instead, we’re going to review two separate pieces of information,...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 12/17/2014 | NRA ILA Contributor
    Under the guise of public safety, Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) announced Monday his push for a package of gun control measures during the 2015 session of the Virginia General Assembly in his latest misguided attempt to erode the rights of law-abiding citizens. McAuliffes scheme for rolling back your constitutionally protected freedoms includes: *Attempting to reimpose the ineffective one-handgun-per-month (gun rationing) restriction that Virginia repealed in 2012.*Seeking to arbitrarily strip some 9,000 Virginia residents of their right to hold concealed handgun permits for falling behind on child-support payments and pursuing prohibitions for people convicted of certain misdemeanor crimes from possessing a...

    So holds the Connecticut Supreme Court, in the just-released State v. DeCiccio. Heres an excerpt of the reasoning as to police batons, which also applies in large measure to dirks, and which, I would argue, should apply to stun guns and Tasers (paragraph break added). (Disclosure: I represent the Association of Women Against Rape and Endangerment, as amicus curiae, in Commonwealth v. Caetano, now pending before the Massachusetts high court; that cases involves the question whether stun guns and Tasers are arms for Second Amendment purposes; we argue that they are.)

    In an earlier column, I looked at the role the abortion issue would play in the 2016 election -- not very much, I concluded -- and promised another column on other cultural issues. Here goes. On anyone's list of cultural issues that have been debated over the last decade, same-sex marriage ranks just behind abortion. And unlike abortion, opinion on same-sex marriage has changed dramatically in recent years. Not long ago, it wasn't a political issue at all. The gifted writers Andrew Sullivan and Jonathan Rauch were making an intellectually serious, and interestingly conservative, case for same-sex marriage. But the...

    Rights: No longer fearing electoral revenge from the National Rifle Association, an outgoing Democratic Senate pushed to confirm an anti-Second Amendment radical, who thinks guns are a health issue, as the nation's top doc. A Democratic Senate that earlier balked at the nomination of Dr. Vivek Murthy to be surgeon general of the U.S. no longer feared the possible electoral consequences of approving him in the wake of November's Republican tsunami. That, along with the GOP's obsession to not be blamed for a government shutdown, gave us a bad budget deal and the Democrats a chance to confirm Murthy. A...

    A handful of families impacted by the Sandy Hook school shooting have decided to ease their grief by suing the manufacturer of AR style rifles. Obviously, a little unnecessary litigation is the most effective way to right the wrongs of a madman. According to CNBC: Ten families touched by the Newtown massacre filed a wrongful death lawsuit Monday against companies that made, distributed and sold the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle that Adam Lanza used to kill 20 children and six staffers at Sandy Hook Elementary two years ago. The suit argues that the gun is a military assault weapon that never...

On Sunday afternoon, Chris Wyatt and other family members were able to recognize the people whod broken into their house on that Friday from home surveillance video. The burglars were apparently back in the neighborhood trying to ruin Christmas for a few more boys and girls. Once confronted, of course, the suspects had their own story. Chris Wyatt told WBRC TV: They tried to say that they were lost and we corrected them where they were. While they...

    Survey results made public Wednesday by Pew Research Center show public support for protecting gun rights on the rise across all demographics except for two notable categories, liberal Democrats and Hispanics. [A]ttitudes expressed by Hispanics show overwhelming rejection of pro-gun political sentiment. With only 25 percent favoring laws protecting the right to own guns, 71 percent want government to control ownership. That tracks with warnings issued by Gun Owners of America, curiously alone among national gun rights advocacy groups. GOA has warned that amnesty for illegal aliens, and a "pathway to citizenship," will provide for millions of new anti-gun voters...

    Gun-rights supporters are now a majority among Americans, according to a Pew Research Center survey released Wednesday that marks a stunning turnaround from two years ago, when the Newtown school shooting had appeared to give gun control advocates the upper hand in the public debate. Its the highest approval rate in two decades, Pew said, and its driven by changing attitudes across nearly all demographic lines, including among black Americans who are increasingly likely to view guns as good for protection, rather than as a public safety danger. According to Pew, 52 percent of the public says its more important...

    Given that our Commander in Chief is a surprisingly decent firearm salesman, its a little odd that one of Americas most prolific gun manufacturers might soon be facing an agonizing financial death. But, thats exactly where Colt is headed if things dont change drastically. It takes a very specialized form of failure for a gun company to miss out on the Obama-inspired run on guns, the assault weapon craze of the 2000s, and the proliferation of Concealed Carry in the 1990s, but thats exactly what happened. And, worse, this isnt Colts first foray into fiscal failure. In fact, this...

If the Second Amendment is cherished by millions of Americans, then why not use it to further certain liberal ideals? Protecting African-American lives and alleviating tensions between the black community and law enforcement should be a top priority of all Americans and especially Congress; however, this is not the case. It speaks volumes that African-Americans vote over 90 percent Democrat during national elections, yet our future nominee in 2016 still hasn't addressed an...

Fast and Furious, along with Benghazi, is one of the two "phony" administration scandals that produced body bags, and former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson is responsible for much of the truth-telling about both.

    prior to this change Russians were only allowed to own firearms for hunting or target practice. Because of this, there are only 13 million privately owned firearms in Russia compared to approximately 310 million the US. On the other hand, there were 21,603 murders in Russia in 2009 compared with just over 13,600 in the US, which has a population almost twice as large [as Russia]. In other words, in the past few years fewer guns equaled more murder in Russia while more guns equaled fewer murders in the US. Under the new law, Russians can acquire a license to...

    Under Obama, U.S. personal freedom ranking slips below France Americans' assessments of their personal freedom have significantly declined under President Obama, according to a new study from the Legatum Institute in London, and the United States now ranks below 20 other countries on this measure. The research shows that citizens of countries including France, Uruguay, and Costa Rica now feel that they enjoy more personal freedom than Americans. As the Washington Examiner reported this morning, representatives of the Legatum Institute are in the U.S. this week to promote the sixth edition of their Prosperity Index. The index aims to measure...

    Israel is to ease controls on carrying weapons for self-defense after a deadly Palestinian attack on a Jerusalem synagogue, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said on Tuesday.

    Fear of sunlight and guns is leading Democrats to turn nocturnal. Bats, mice, skunks and other nocturnal creatures are most active between sunset and sunrise. Nocturnal creatures do not choose to avoid sunlight anymore than fish choose to avoid dry land; it is instinctual, healthy and normal for nocturnal creatures to work in the dark. Humans, in contrast, are by nature not nocturnal in either a literal or a metaphorical sense. Social by nature, it is abnormal for humans to skulk in the shadows. Rational by nature, it is also unhealthy for men and women to metaphorically work in the...

    To make things worse, during an interview a D.C. police department employee essentially argued that Second Amendment rights don't apply in D.C. because they were written "for when the British were coming." For the record, "the British were coming" (a reference from Paul Revere's famous ride) in 1775. The Second Amendment wasn't written until 1787. Yes, we fought the British again for the War of 1812, but that isn't why the Amendment was written.
