It’s how to make people in urban America, suburban America, and rural America feel safe. The only way to do it is to really get to the point of sensible gun control in...

  • Is The Modern Australian Police State The Result Of Excessive Gun Control?

    Unlike the apathetic population of Australia, Florida Governor Ron De Santis knows how important freedom is to Western Societies. 31 years ago today a severely disabled autistic man slaughtered 35 people at Port Arthur and, in response, Australia, under the conservative leadership of "man of steel" John Howard, made massive tightening of gun control and massive reduction in private gun ownership. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, said of Australia, after Victoria Police assaulted peaceful protestors with rubber bullets (a weapon with a fatality rate of 3 percent): “Look what’s going on in Australia right now. They’re enforcing, after a year-and-a-half, lockdowns...

Executive producers were hit with a $136,793 film - the maximum available. Baldwin himself was a producer, but highlighted a passage in the investigation which said that he was involved in the script and casting...

    WASHINGTON, D.C—The White House grounds have entered a lockdown following the sighting of a senile old man wandering around waving a gun and making outlandish demands. "Look folks, no more automatic weapons! You hear me, I'm serious! And no more gramblegrawp!" said the old, confused man while pointing his gun at everyone.

Witnesses claim that while the man appeared to be well-dressed, he had no clue who or where he was. "He kept asking 'where's First Lady Kamala' and asking why's nobody...

    We are strange creatures. We see the world and build mental models of how the world works. Soon, those models become more significant to us than reality itself. That is dangerous when so much of our “experience” is from the news and entertainment media. We think our tiny screens show us what is really happening. We want to be carful about what we put into our heads. Here in the USA, there are over a million violent crimes a year. The vast majority of them do not involve the criminal using a gun. At the same time, honest citizens like...

    A bill limiting the way schools can conduct active shooter lockdown drills was signed into law on Thursday by Gov. Jay Inslee. HB 1941 makes it so that schools in Washington cannot conduct drills involving “live simulations or reenactments of active shooter scenarios that are not trauma-informed and age and developmentally appropriate.” That means that students, teachers, and school staff must be alerted to any drills related to school shooting safety beforehand and that drills cannot directly mimic the presence of a shooter on school grounds, instead, focusing on basic lockdown procedures. The bill’s sponsor, state Rep. Amy Walen, points...
  • Georgia House passes 'constitutional carry' law that would abolish requirement for a background check or permit to carry a handgun in public as Gov. Brian Kemp vows to take bill 'across the finish line'

    A bill that would abolish the need for a background check or a license to carry a gun in public passed the Georgia House on Friday, moving a step closer to the 'constitutional carry' that Gov. Brian Kemp and other Republicans have promised to deliver in an election year. House Bill 1358 passed 94-57, moving to the Senate for more debate. The Senate passed a similar measure last month. Republicans said it was needed to allow people to more easily protect themselves from crime, citing civil unrest seen in some 2020 protests over racial injustice in Atlanta.
