    U.S. — In one of the most remarkable miracles in human history, the thousands of bump stocks that went missing seven years ago in boating accidents all simultaneously washed ashore and have been reunited with their owners. "Wow, my bump stock washed ashore! And just a day after the Supreme Court ruling overturning the ban!" said local man Omar Gonzales. "What's even crazier, my neighbor Bill also lost his in a boating accident in 2017, and his bump stock also washed ashore this morning. It's a miracle!" Across the nation, tens of thousands of Americans reported similar shocking experiences. "It's...

    Remember, a white guy with an AR-15 is the most dangerous person on the planet. But a minority yute? That's an I-bond: A Washington DC judge has sparked backlash after releasing a teenager accused of spraying a sleepy neighborhood with bullets from an AR-15. Judge Lloyd U. Nolan Jr., a self-described 'woke' magistrate judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, ruled that Amonte Moody, 18, be released on bail ahead of his trial. We went out of state the other week and there was a sale on 30-round magazines. Not a single serial number on any of...

    A “woke” Washington, DC, judge is facing backlash after he opted to cut loose an 18-year-old accused of firing more than two dozen rounds from an AR-15 into a car full of people. Lloyd U. Nolan Jr., a judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, last week ordered Amonte Moody to be released on house arrest ahead of his trial — despite acknowledging that the teen’s alleged actions could have killed someone. Moody, who was slapped with charges including assault with a dangerous weapon, had allegedly sprayed 26 shots at an SUV carrying four people on Independence...

    Colorado House Democrats passed “assault weapons” ban legislation Sunday to prohibit the sale of AR-15s and certain 9mm pistols. On March 20, 2024, Breitbart News reported that the legislation, HB24-1292, bans 9mm pistols that have threaded barrels and accept a detachable magazine. Moreover, the text of HB24-1292 makes clear that a semiautomatic handgun of any caliber would be banned if it takes a detachable magazine and has a threaded barrel.

    Senate candidate and U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) supports legislation that, if passed into law, would prohibit Arizonans from buying AR-15 rifles. Gallego highlights his gun control support on his campaign website, although he does not go into the specifics of what his proposed policies would do if enacted. For example, the campaign website mentions Gallego’s time as a U.S. Marine and his use of a gun with full-auto function. “Carrying and using his M16 to defend himself and his fellow Marines in Iraq made it clear to Ruben that weapons of war have no place in civilian life,” it...

    The Idaho Attorney General has joined with the Attorney General of Indiana and 26 other state AGs or Legislatures to file an amicus brief in the case of Bevis v City of Naperville.

    A Texas man was shot to death after breaking into a truck while the owner was asleep inside, with a rifle in reach, officials say. Deputies responded to the scene of a shooting overnight at an apartment complex in north Houston, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said in a Feb. 13 post on X, formerly Twitter. The owner of a truck awoke to find another man inside the vehicle, having broken in, Gonzalez said, and the owner opened fire with an AR-15. The alleged thief died at the scene, Gonzalez said, adding that he was “possibly armed with pistols.” Deputies...

    The Seventh Circuit has recently ruled AR-15 pattern rifles are not protected by the Second Amendment. The lawless ruling ignores the Heller and Bruen decisions. Leading the list of long guns sold, the ubiquitous AR-15 is the most popular sporting rifle in America. Circa 2023, Americans own more than 23 million. The AR-15 is also the rifle type democrats/Socialists/Communists are most desperate to ban, that and so-called “high capacity magazines,” which have been standard capacity magazines since the Vietnam War.

    This is not a metaphor, but what’s happening in the country, literally. I mean, you can’t make this sh*t up: It is 100% impossible to restrict gun rights based on the US Constitution. “Shall not be infringed” is very straightforward. However, the people in charge of the country have been violating the Constitution since the late 19th century and they threw it out completely in the 1960s.

    New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) is pushing a ban on AR-15s and other semiautomatic rifles in an upcoming 30-day legislative session in her state. The Santa Fe Reporter noted Grisham wants to do what Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM) unsuccessfully attempted at the federal level. Heinrich, together with Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ), put forward the Gas-Operated Semiautomatic Firearms Exclusion Act (GOSAFE), and it went nowhere. Breitbart News reported the focus on the AR-15’s gas operation came some 64 years after the gun was designed to use spent gas from a shell casing to reset the bolt group and ready...

    Mayor Eric Adams is leading a coalition of 62 mayors across the nation in calling for US House Speaker Mike Johnson to pass a ban on assault weapons following the mass shooting in Maine. During a news conference on Thursday, Adams pointed to the massacre in Lewiston, where 18 people were killed, as the latest example of why the federal government needs to revive its former assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004. “Eighteen Mainers were stolen from us by yet another disturbed man, wielding an assault rifle that had no business on our streets,” Adams said. “Mass shooting deaths...

    Our Quad Cities reports that Illinois Democrats are set to ban AR-15 marketing that “appeals to children” or which they believe could entice others to use the firearms illegally. Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) has already pledged to sign the marketing ban when it reaches his desk. Illinois Democrat Attorney General Kwame Raoul made clear he is going after the firearm industry in the same manner that others went after the tobacco industry during the Clinton Administration: “We’ve gone after the marketing that has historically driven up the consumption by minors for those products that are harmful to them. The firearms...

    House Democrats introduced legislation Friday that would place a 1,000 percent excise tax on AR-15s and other firearms they refer to as “assault weapons.” FOX News reported the tax would also apply to “high capacity” magazines. Rep. Don Beyer (D) and 24 other Democrats are behind the tax which they also pushed last year. The imposition would force the price of a $500 firearm to jump to $5,000 and “a weapon that normally costs $2,000 would force customers to pay more than $20,000.”

    President Joe Biden targeted makers of AR-15s and other firearms Democrats label “assault weapons,” calling on Sunday for the ability to file lawsuits against such manufacturers. Biden used social media to broadcast his view: Gun manufacturers have spent two decades aggressively marketing assault weapons that make them some of the biggest profits. It’s time we ended gun manufacturers’ immunity from liability – we’ve got to hold them accountable. — President Biden (@POTUS) June 25, 2023

    It is revered as a modern-day musket. It is reviled as a tool for mass killers. The AR-15 wasn’t supposed to be a bestseller. The rugged, powerful weapon was originally designed as a soldiers’ rifle in the late 1950s. “An outstanding weapon with phenomenal lethality,” an internal Pentagon report raved. It soon became standard issue for U.S. troops in the Vietnam War, where the weapon earned a new name: the M16.

    If you want your murder to matter, you need to be shot, not stabbed. How much coverage did the four University of Idaho students stabbed to death in their apartment last year get? Even though theirs was the first murder in Moscow, Idaho in 7 years, you probably didn’t hear about it. Pin on Pinterest Mass stabbings don’t have the same sexy cachet as mass shootings. Unlike the UK, no one responds to mass stabbings by proposing to ban chef’s knives. (Yet.) But not all guns are equal. If you really want people to notice your murder, you had better...
