    This one has been making the rounds,some,many may have seen? You've been on vacation for two weeks, you come home, and your basement is infested with raccoons. Hundreds of messy, mean raccoons have overtaken your basement. You want them gone immediately so you hire a guy. An animal control pro.

    Rachael Larimore, a Senior Editor at Slate, has written a unusual piece for the publication.  It is titled Bullet Points.  You can be forgiven for expecting this will be another uninformed diatribe against those evil conservatives, who if they would only stop licking the boots of their NRA masters, would allow common sense legislation to pass that would prevent crime by outlawing evil guns.  The expected would, in this case, be wrong. Ms Larimore, who has been at Slate since 2002, was, as of 2008, the only Republican at the publication.  That makes her remarkable.  She actually knows how...

    An influential veterans group is blasting some of their former brass for taking positions that many feel are a violation of their oaths to protect the Constitution. The Special Forces Association forcefully rebuked calls for more gun control from both former CIA director and CENTCOM commander David Petraeus and retired Army general Stanley McChrystal. SFA is a 52 year old national organization composed of members who once served in the U.S. Special Forces. The organization drew up a membership resolution at their annual convention in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday, confirming prior statements of continued support of the U.S. “Constitution and...

Francis started by attacking the Right to Keep and Bear Arms as well as accusing the allies during World War Two of being complicit in the killing of Jews, Christians and homosexuals. Francis issued his toughest condemnation to date of the weapons industry, saying. “If you trust only men you have lost,” he told the young people in a long, rambling talk about war, trust and politics after...

    On ABC This Week, June 19, Senator Chris Murphy revealed what Second Amendment supporters have said was the anti-Second Amendment strategy all along.  Pass incremental infringements on the Second Amendment until nothing is left that means anything.  That is why anti-Second Amendment plotters push so hard on legislation that seems unrelated to the current terrorist atrocity. They use it as an emotional vehicle for other legislation they normally could not pass.  In the interview, ABC’s Jon Karl is questioning Senator Chris Murphy from Connecticut.

"I have voted for it,” Kaine said. “But I think there’s a better way to go at the problem and that is limitations on the size of magazines and ammunition clips."

    Hawaii is considering a law that would place the names of all gun owners in the state in an FBI database. Supporters believe it’s a groundbreaking step to make Hawaii a national leader when it comes to safe gun laws according to the AP. The idea that placing the names of legal gun owners into a federal database will make Hawaii any safer is inherently flawed. The majority of gun violence isn’t committed by law abiding citizens who purchase and register their guns legally. It’s committed by those who do not. The law will deter legal gun ownership as many...

    Days after 49 people died and dozens others were injured at an Orlando gay nightclub, many in the LGBT community began expressing an piqued interest in their own security. The nation’s deadliest mass shooting — and deadliest terror attack since 9/11 — led to the rapid growth of groups like Pink Pistols, which provides resources for gay gun owners. The owner of a Houston, Texas, gun range aimed to add even more to the ranks by offering free classes to members of the LGBT community.

    It has happened again: another mass shooting. For those of us who have spent a lot of time in places like the Pulse night club, this mass murder is particularly painful. In a culture in which queer people are made to feel grateful for merely being tolerated, gay clubs are spaces where we are celebrated — safe havens that represent the opposite of repression and violence. To have that shattered by someone pledging allegiance to ISIS is an incomprehensible contradiction. It doesn't make any sense.

The woman had ended her relationship of two years with Gunter earlier this month after finding out about his criminal history, according to investigators.

    There are millions of Americans who want to restrict firearm ownership and use by one degree or another. While you may disagree with those people, at least they’re consistent. For the most part, die-hard gun grabbers don’t own firearms, and have probably never even held a gun before. They’re not hypocrites, unlike the handful of politicians and celebrities who often lead them. It’s been pointed out by Second Amendment supporters for years, that the wealthy and famous liberals who say they hate gun so much, are typically flanked by professionally trained and armed security guards at all times.

This is particularly disappointing because, while we expect somebody like Harry Reid to lie about the difference between military assault rifles and the kinds of rifles that are available to civilians, obfuscation and misrepresentation are not the kind of conduct we expect from a former Marine officer.

Mr. Ryan said he was “not going to allow stunts like this to stop us from carrying out the people’s business.” He added, “This is about a publicity stunt and now a fund-raising scheme.” But on legislative business, it was Mr. Ryan who prevailed. He personally reclaimed control of the House, pounding his gavel and muscling through a major appropriations bill that included funding for combating the Zika virus, without debate.

Then, around 3:30 a.m., they adjourned the chamber until after July Fourth – two days earlier than planned. In so doing, they’ve guaranteed that the debate about gun control will roil the congressional recess and remain a dominant storyline for the next two weeks. Democrats continue to occupy...

Investigators would not immediately confirm the number of wounded, but described it as a "threat situation."

    Ron Fournier is a liar.On June 20, 2016, this mainstream media maven tweeted, “Guns don't kill people. The gun lobby does.”This is a lie.Sen. Chris Murphy, Democrat of Connecticut, is also a liar.On June 20, 2016, after voting against Sen. John Cornyn’s bill to bar persons on terrorist watch lists from buying weapons because it contained due process protections for such people, he said, “We’ve got to make this clear, constant case that Republicans have decided to sell weapons to ISIS.”This is also a lie.These men are liars. And liberals have chosen to celebrate their lies.Now, it is generally good...

    English title: Orlando massacre was "revenge," not terrorism, says man who claims he was gunman's lover Mateen was "very sweet" and liked to be "cuddled," the man told Univision. But he was upset about the way gay men responded to him. Omar Mateen, the Muslim gunman who committed the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando, was "100 percent" gay and bore a grudge against Latino men because he felt used by them, according to a man who says he was his lover for two months. “I’ve cried like you have no idea. But the thing that makes me want to tell...

    President Barack Obama plans to make smart gun technology a primary part of his push to control firearms, but an expert warns that the new high-tech weaponry poses a danger to constitutional rights—and he’s not talking about the Second Amendment. In April, Obama posed the question, “If we can set it up so you can’t unlock your phone unless you’ve got the right fingerprint, why can’t we do the same thing for our guns?” Obama released a presidential memorandum requiring three departments to push smart gun research—the departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Defense. The memo also entices the industry...

    Stephen Colbert was angrier than usual with the Senate after they failed to pass any of the proposed gun control bills this week. The Late Show host had a hard time believing that they couldn’t come together on something that so many Americans agree on, saying, “Ninety-two percent of Americans want to expand background checks for gun buyers, and you just ignore them. Since when does 8 percent of the population get to have total control of an issue?”

    Warning: this video contains extremely graphic content.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VESsSJn88QTranscript: 49 people are dead in Orlando, in the worst mass shooting in the nation's history. Barack Obama initial public statement concerning this latest unspeakable horror can be summed up in a few sentences: First: Islam? What's that? Second: Easy access to guns caused the massacre Third: We Americans are to blame. Fourth: This is just another case of homegrown extremism. The word Islam never came up during the Presidents initial remarks to the nation, so let me see if I can fill in a bit of his educational deficiency. Mr. Obama, the word...

    But those who constantly appeal to that sentence in the Constitution as an obstacle to reasonable gun regulation are ignorant about the Founders’ own views about gun regulation. Any honest historian of the early Republic will tell you that lax gun laws are not in fact pro-Second Amendment; they are anti-Second Amendment. -snip Pennsylvania, in its 1776 Constitution, was the first state to include an express provision affirming the right to bear arms. It also passed a stringent loyalty oath that disarmed a large proportion of its population. Similar oaths were in force in most of the other states. When...

    Following the terror attack in Orlando, the dominant media/political narrative turned to gun control and now-discredited claims of the suspect's mental illness (claims which included gay-baiting).Now, one controversial former FBI agent -- and current consultant to the Obama administration on "countering violent extremism" (CVE) -- is suggesting a national gun registry be created. Such a registry would target millions of law-abiding American citizens. Gamal Abdel-Hafiz, born in Cairo, immigrated to the U.S. in 1990. He recently retired from the FBI after 22 turbulent years at the bureau. Following the Orlando attack, Abdel-Hafiz explained his rationale for creating a national...

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch told Florida’s LGBT community that the “most effective” weapon at America’s disposal against Islamic terrorism is “love.” Mrs. Lynch told reporters in Orlando on Tuesday that an ongoing investigation will determine the precise motive for 29-year-old Omar Mateen’s June 12 massacre at Pulse, a gay nightclub. Mateen, a former security guard, called 911 and pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group while killing 49 people and wounding 53 others.
