    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Friday on “Deadline” that he believed a “lack” of gun legislation in the United States was a civil rights issue because society was “arming bigots.” Anchor Nicolle Wallace said, “Kamala Harris will lead this effort. She spoke today about witnessing firsthand the impacts of gun violence during her time as a prosecutor and attorney general.”
  • Biden gives Kamala ANOTHER job: President taps VP to run the first ever federal gun violence prevention office

    President Joe Biden has tapped Kamala Harris to lead his gun violence prevention office, giving his vice president yet another task for her packed portfolio. Biden will formally announce his decision in a ceremony in the Rose Garden on Friday afternoon. Harris will oversee the office. Stefanie Feldman, a longtime Biden aide who has worked on gun policy for more than a decade, will serve as its director. Harris, a former prosecutor and state attorney general, has years of experience on the issue. But the vice president now has some of the nation's highest-profile policy issues on her plate -...

    The White House will announce this week that it is creating an Office of Gun Violence Prevention to focus on efforts to curb gun violence, two sources familiar confirmed to The Hill. Gun violence prevention advocates and Democratic lawmakers have been pushing the White House to establish a designated office solely focused on gun violence. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), who has known for his focus on gun violence prevention, applauded the White House on Wednesday after reports of the first-of-its-kind office. “This is an idea I have been pushing relentlessly for some time, and I’m thrilled President Biden is making...

    During an interview aired on Tuesday’s broadcast of NewsNation’s “Cuomo,” California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) stated that while the media was slow to pick up the Hunter Biden story, “my God, the best they can do right now is a simple gun charge of a felony on a simple form” and that he has “absolute trust and faith in the system to advance the cause of justice.” Newsom said, “I’m for accountability wherever you find it, absolutely. And by the way, was the media quick on that story? They were not. And you’ve been very pointed about that and you’re...
  • Hunter Biden plans to plead NOT GUILTY to charges he lied about being addicted to drugs when he bought a gun

    Hunter Biden plans to plead not guilty to federal gun charges according to a new court filing. The filing Tuesday also said the president's son is requesting to have his first appearance in court remote, conducted via video conference. Last week, Hunter was hit with three felony charges after allegedly lying about his crack cocaine addiction when buying a gun in 2018 and faces up to 25 years in prison. If the president's son does not strike a new plea deal with Special Counsel David Weiss' prosecutors he will face a jury trial, which would be a huge political liability...

    Liberty Safe, which describes itself as “America’s #1 heavy-duty home and gun safe manufacturer,” has come under fire after a report revealed that its parent company has donated almost half a million dollars to pro-gun control Democratic officials. On Wednesday, Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk shared FEC filings on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, that show Liberty Safe’s parent company, Monomoy Capital Partners, has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democrats. “I pulled the FEC reports on the company and found approximately $400,000 over the last 10 cycles of max donations to Democrats,” Kirk...

    BAY COUNTY, Fla. – Two Florida women are facing battery charges after a fight escalates and one of them bites the ear off of the other, according to deputies. Bay County Sheriff’s deputies said were called to a house party thrown by unsupervised minors on July 4 after midnight. According to an arrest affidavit, Macy Regan, 23, and Dixie Stiles, 18, got into an altercation when Stiles accused Regan of stealing alcohol and vape pens. Deputies said Regan attempted to leave the house when Stiles confronted her, and Regan pulled out a gun. Deputies said Stiles pushed the gun away...

    After the collapse of the Hunter Biden plea bargain, it was telling that the Biden Team seemed most insistent on one demand: the gun charge agreement was still in full effect. Many of us noted that Hunter’s placement into the pre-trial diversion program not only contradicted the position of his father and the Biden Administration on such charges, but was sharply in contradiction with similar contemporaneous cases. Perhaps for that reason, the Biden attorneys were apoplectic in maintaining that the gun charge was inked and sealed. The Justice Department just declared, however, that it is dead as Dillinger. That is...

    Shocking video captured the moment a quick-thinking Long Island cop used his police vehicle to sideswipe a woman who was waving a gun in the street. Police responded to a report of a woman firing a gun into the air at the intersection of Bellmore and Jerusalem avenues in North Bellmore around 2:20 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon. Footage of the incident, posted on Reddit, shows the woman holding the handgun and threateningly pointing it at other cars as she walks across the road. At one point she even holds the gun to her own head, the video shows. Suddenly, tires...

    More than 100 Democrats are calling on Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to schedule votes on gun violence prevention legislation, the latest push by members of the minority party to spark action on gun reform. In a letter to McCarthy on Thursday, the Democrats — all members of the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force — asked that McCarthy bring firearm-related measures to the floor “as soon as possible.” The lawmakers also laid out a “new standing request” that if leadership is ever forced to change the vote schedule or cancel votes altogether — which happened last week — that they would...

    PALM COAST, Fla. – A Palm Coast man arrested Tuesday is accused of pointing a handgun at people in his neighborhood over Fourth of July fireworks they were lighting in the street, according to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies responded around 9:45 p.m. to an address along Rymen Lane, making contact with Christopher Lemke, 70, the subject of a 911 caller’s report to Flagler dispatchers. The caller accused Lemke of pulling a gun on them because he was upset about fireworks going off along the street in front of his house, but Lemke denied the threat and told deputies...

    President Biden responded to Fourth of July weekend gun violence in numerous Democrat-run cities by pushing an “assault weapons” ban, “high capacity” magazine ban, universal background checks, and more. Thirty people were shot in Democrat-run Baltimore at a block party just after 12:30 a.m. Sunday, Breitbart News reported. Baltimore, like all of Maryland, already has an “assault weapons” ban, “high capacity” magazine ban, universal background checks, and many other gun controls.

    The mayor of Wichita, Kansas, is calling for his city to "stand united against the alarming rise in gun violence" following a shooting at a nightclub over the weekend that left nine people injured with bullet wounds and another two hospitalized after being trampled. Wichita Police Lt. Aaron Moses said investigators believe several shooters opened fire inside the City Nightz club just before 1 a.m. on Sunday.

    On January 13, 2023, LD 168 was introduced into the Maine Legislature by Speaker Talbot Ross of Portland, cosponsored by Representative Salisbury of Westbrook. LD 168 was designed to eliminate most private sales of modern firearms by requiring the sale to be conducted through a federally licensed dealer and recorded in the dealer’s records. The bill specifically targeted gun shows, online distributors, or printed publications advertising firearms for sale. Law enforcement was exempted. The fine for the first offense was set at $1000. From LD 168:2. Requirement. If neither the seller nor buyer of a firearm is a federally licensed...

    CNN pushed gun control by citing accidental gun death figures for children but omitted the fact that car accidents kill 27 times more children. In a Monday article CNN pointed to a study in the Injury Epidemiology journal, which “looked at cases over a nearly a decade in which children under 15 accidentally killed themselves or another child with a gun.” It noted that using “data from 2009 to 2018 across 33 states, the team counted 279 cases in which kids under 15 accidentally died due to firearm injury.”

    It regularly happens that I’ll strike on the seed of an idea for a column that attempts to connect the current news cycle with an analogous event from history, only to discover that the anniversary of that past milepost falls on or near my deadline. I always take this as a sign from a beneficent universe that I am on solid journalistic footing. And so it was last week as I was reading the section of the 44-page federal indictment of former President Donald J. Trump that dealt with the fateful July 2021 meeting in Bedminster, N.J., between Trump and...
