  • Beto’s “Hell, Yes” is greatest gift of all to President Trump and Republicans

    The Patriot-News ^ | September 21, 2019 | Marc A. Scaringi
    Democratic presidential candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke (aka “Beto”) has just presented President Trump and Republicans with the greatest political gift of all – “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47!” Beto shouted those words about his new gun confiscation plan at the Democratic presidential debate hosted by ABC News in Houston, Texas. After decades of experienced Democratic politicians denying it, this young, upstart wannabe president finally gave the true answer – the answer conservatives have always known is the end game of Democrats’ gun control proposals – confiscation. Now the president and Republicans have all the ammunition...
  • Fact check: Could a President Beto O'Rourke confiscate assault weapons?

    Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke of Texas has made his position on assault weapons crystal clear. "Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47," O'Rourke said during Thursday's Democratic presidential debate. "We're not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore." To accomplish this, O'Rourke has proposed a mandatory confiscation of these guns whereby individuals would be compensated for their firearms. Beyond the thorny politics of this proposal, it raises clear legal and logistical questions, including whether a president has the authority to confiscate people's guns. Facts First: A president could not issue a blanket...

    Rep. Pete King is the first Republican to sign on to the assault weapons ban WASHINGTON — An assault weapons ban that Democratic leaders have been reluctant to advance despite strong support among their rank-and-file members in the House just got its first Republican backer — Long Island Rep. Pete King. “They are weapons of mass slaughter,” King said shortly after his backing became public on Congress’ website Monday. “I don’t see any need for them in everyday society,” King said. The Assault Weapons Ban of 2019 was rolled out in February by Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), with 190 other...
  • Joe Biden accuses Donald Trump of ‘using the language’ of white nationalism

    The Isle of Wight County Press ^ | August 5, 2019 | Press Association
    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has accused President Donald Trump of using the language of white nationalism and said he would push for a federal buyback programme to encourage Americans to give up their military-style weapons and ammunition if elected. The former vice president said in an interview with CNN that the voluntary weapons buybacks would be in addition to his push for renewing a lapsed federal ban on new manufacturing and sales of such firearms, a prohibition he helped win in 1994 as a senator from Delaware, only to watch it expire a decade later.
  • California: Deadline to Register or Modify “Assault Weapons” is Rapidly Approaching

    NRA-ILA ^ | 06/15/18
    The deadline for gun owners to register their firearms as “assault weapons” or modify them to be compliant with the restrictions that resulted from SB 880 and AB 1135 (2016) must be completed by 11:59:59 P.M. on June 30, 2018. NRA opposed these bills because gun registration inevitably leads to gun confiscation. NRA is continuing the fight against recently enacted gun control laws in the Golden State by supporting ongoing litigation efforts. In the case of Villanueva v. Becerra, challenging the regulations that accompany the Assault Weapons Control Act, an order was recently issued denying the petition to invalidate CA...
  • How Bill Clinton Brought Back the 1911 Pistol

    06/07/2017 8:17:41 AM PDT · by rktman · 83 replies ^ | 6/6/2017 | Tom Knighton
    Gun control laws are pointless, and here's all you need to know about that: From the early 1990s until 2016, guns in circulation in the U.S. just about doubled, while violent crime was just about cut in half. Worse (for the gun grabbers), gun control laws often lead to outcomes the gun grabbers never intended: In that post AWB [the Bill Clinton-era "Assault Weapon Ban"] world, you could still buy a GLOCK or a Beretta, but why would you? Unless you had a source of pre-ban magazines you felt screwed and cheated. Why carry a full size pistol that could...

    UMC website ^ | 13 JUNE 16 | A Feature by Joe Iovino
    “Pray for Orlando" we read on Facebook and Twitter. Prayer is vitally important, but is there more we can do? As United Methodist Christians, we mourn with the victims and families of those wounded and killed in the shootings on June 12, 2016 in Orlando, Florida. We may even pray and wonder if anything could have been done to avert this heinous act. But should we do more? Is there anything that can be done to keep something similar from happening in the future? While we may not agree on a solution, many of us agree there is a problem....
  • Four ways Hillary Clinton will work to end gun ownership as president

    Fox News ^ | June 06, 2016 | John R. Lott
    On Sunday, Hillary Clinton just couldn’t bring herself to say on ABC's "This Week" that Americans have an individual right to own guns. But it didn’t stop her from denying Donald Trump’s claim that she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. Clinton accused Trump of making “outright fabrications, accusing me of something that is absolutely untrue.” From changing the Supreme Court to make it possible to again ban guns in the United States to making it more costly to own guns, I predict that a President Hillary Clinton will do four things to either ban guns or at least reduce...

    Shows willingness to compromise on gun rights. It could be the most damaging “Dear John” letter of the 2016 presidential primary race. A letter from former President Bill Clinton disclosed just days before the Ohio primary is causing Ohio Gov. John Kasich problems on the campaign trail. Kasich tells GOP voters he can “get things done” by working with Democrats but also stresses he is a “defender of the 2nd Amendment.” The letter from Clinton shows Kasich made a deal to restrict the Second Amendment rights of American “on one of the most critical votes on guns ever,” according to...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich said he has to win and expects to do well in his home state of Ohio among the Republican primaries today, adding he'll also do well in other states. "You'll see tonight. We're going to win Ohio," Kasich said in an interview on “Good Morning America.” “We have to win.” He added: "We're going to do better in Illinois that anybody thinks."

    A warmly worded thank you note from the days when there was a Clinton in the White House is raising questions about Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s stand on gun control. In 1994, when former President Bill Clinton was working to get an assault weapons ban through Congress, Kasich was one of only 38 Republicans who voted in support of H.R. 4296, the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. For that action, he received a letter, only recently unearthed, from Clinton.

  • Obama set to unveil curbs on gun sellers (make sure your boating accident occurs before 12/31/15)

    12/31/2015 7:11:20 AM PST · by Red in Blue PA · 18 replies
    According to gun industry insiders and others familiar with the proposals, the changes include requiring an expanded number of small-scale gun sellers to be licensed—and therefore conduct background checks—whenever selling a weapon. This wouldn’t close the so-called gun show loophole, though it has the potential to narrow it. The administration is also expected to impose tighter rules for reporting guns that get lost or stolen on their way to a buyer.
  • Assault weapons ban before US Supreme Court

    The U.S. Supreme Court could announce as early as Tuesday whether it will hear a challenge to a suburban Chicago law banning firearms commonly known as assault weapons. If the court agrees to hear the case, it would cast a shadow over similar bans in seven states. But declining to take it up would boost efforts to impose such bans elsewhere, at a time of renewed interest in gun regulation after recent mass shootings. Gun rights advocates are challenging a 2013 law passed in Highland Park, Illinois, that bans the sale, purchase, or possession of semi-automatic weapons that can hold...

    TODAY IN THE GRANITE STATE: Less than one week after the deadly shooting at the Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, Hillary Clinton is set to propose a series of gun control measures she would enact if elected president, ABC's LIZ KREUTZ reports. Clinton's plan, which she plans to unveil at campaign events in New Hampshire today, comes two days after the Democratic presidential candidate blasted Republicans for putting "the NRA ahead of American families," and just hours after her Democratic challenger, Martin O'Malley, called on both Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders to back his plan to reduce gun...

    The Daily Mail ^ | 7 April 2015 | By SIMON TOMLINSON
    Deep in rural South Africa, a terrifying white supremacist movement is brainwashing teenagers to rise up in defiance of Nelson Mandela's hard-fought dream of a Rainbow Nation. The far-right Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB) is training thousands of youths in military-style bootcamps northwest of Johannesburg to fight for a separate white state. By day, they are pushed to their physical limits with assault courses and self-defence lessons, all the while being told of the danger from 'the millions of blacks trying to kill you'. Then by night, they are subjected to vile racist indoctrination which many hoped had disappeared from South...
  • Hillary Clinton Endorses ‘Ban’ on ‘Assault Weapons’ and High-Capacity Magazines, Seemingly Confuses

    The Blaze / The Associated Press ^ | June 17, 2014 | Jason Howerton
    Speaking at a CNN town hall event Tuesday, Hillary Rodham Clinton argued a “ban” on semi-automatic rifles — or so-called “assault rifles” — as well as high-capacity magazines would help reduce gun violence in the United States. “What’s been happening with these school shootings should cause everybody to just think hard,” she said. “I was disappointed that the Congress did not pass universal background checks after the horrors of the shooting at Sandy Hook and now we’ve had more in the time since.”(continued)

    HARTFORD -Starting Tuesday, April 1, long guns may not be sold or transferred in Connecticut without a permit to carry pistols or revolvers or an eligibility certificate for pistols or revolvers or a long gun eligibility certificate, according to the state police. The law is part of the package of gun control legislation passed by the General Assembly last year after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. Other parts of the law had already taken effect. The law required owners of assault weapons that were banned under the law to register their guns by Jan. 1, 2014....
