  • Don't Let Anti-Gun Activists Weaponize the Capitol Hill Riot

    Newsweek ^ | January 20, 2021 | John R Lott Jr.
    After the riot at the U.S. Capitol, gun control organizations warn that armed rioters at state capitols across the country on Inauguration Day pose a threat to our democracy. They claim the only solution is for states to ban guns on capitol grounds, thus extending their bans on carrying guns on public property generally. Never mind that the small group of rioters didn't use guns at the U.S. Capitol. Never mind that congressmen are allowed to carry in the U.S. Capitol, but not on the legislative floor, where Congress was meeting at the time to count Electoral College votes. If...

  • DOJ: Capitol Hill rioters had intent to 'capture and assassinate'

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) has released a memo stating that evidence they have gathered points to many of the rioters having the intent to "capture and assassinate". -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Evidence gathered by the Department of Justice (DOJ) indicates that the rioters who stormed Capitol Hill on Jan. 6 did so with the intention to "capture and assassinate," according to a recently released memo. The FBI said that its agents are tracking more than 200 suspects at the moment, and many of those individuals have been arrested and charged in connection with the events of Jan. 6. However, there is one...
  • “Build Back Better?”: Biden’s Gun Control Push Will Further Divide Us

    01/15/2021 4:15:06 AM PST · by Kaslin · 72 replies ^ | January 15, 2021 | Gabriella Hoffman
    America is hurting. Tensions are high. Coming together and having meaningful dialogue seem impossible. People are tired of politics creeping into everyday life. Worst of all, self-righteous "unifiers" uninterested in unity continue to fan the flames of division. Is it too difficult to set aside our differences, to lower the temperature, and to demand better from elected officials? It shouldn’t be. For instance, healing will take a backseat should the incoming Biden administration and Democrat-controlled Congress pursue aggressive gun control policies. Why? Democrats, Republicans, and independents don’t want to lose their Second Amendment rights. In the spirit of healing and...

  • The Worst Argument Ever

    01/04/2021 6:19:39 AM PST · by Kaslin · 29 replies ^ | January 4, 2020 | Rob Jenkins
    As a professional rhetorician and teacher of rhetoric—the art of persuasion—for over 35 years, I have seen a lot of bad arguments. And not all of them have come from my college students. Not by a long shot. But in all that time, the worst argument I have ever heard, by far, is this one: “If it only saves one life….” It’s a line big-government types love to trot out whenever they want good-hearted, well-meaning people to accept some sketchy, illogical, oppressive measure because, you know, it just might save one person’s life. An example is socialized medicine, which would...

    Just the News ^ | 12/27/2020 | Daniel Payne
    Gun-buying activity shattered records in the U.S. this year, with the Federal Bureau of Investigation recording both the highest number of background checks in its history and the highest increase of checks year-over-year in over two decades. Last month was the busiest November on record for FBI background checks in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, according to the Bureau's month-by-month data. Background checks were up 40% from the prior November, with over 3.6 million checks performed throughout the month. That number would be remarkable during any other year. Only one other month in NICS history prior to this...

    ... Californians will barely notice most of the hundreds of new laws going into effect in 2021. But we've pulled out the most noteworthy, interesting and wide-reaching laws that will take effect in 2021. - Assembly Bill 685 ensures the right of employees to quickly learn if COVID exposure has occurred in the workplace. - After a number of high-profile deaths in police custody around the nation, California passed AB 1196, which prohibits police from using chokeholds and carotid holds. - As part of California’s continued incremental raising of the minimum wage, it will go up to $14 per hour...
  • Will the 2nd Amendment Survive Biden and His Gun Control Policies?

    oe Biden’s official website lays out a sleuth of anti-gun policies they would like to push through. The most popular of these proposals is the push to ban assault rifles. Of course, they cannot actually want to ban assault rifles seeing as they are already banned. Automatic rifles were banned in the 80s during the Reagan administration. When they say assault rifles, they mean semi-automatic rifles. They also want a ban on high-capacity magazines. To gun owners, a high-capacity magazine might mean 45+ rounds in a magazine. 30 rounds are standard on many magazines, like those of the AR-15 and...
  • Gun grab sparks 'Defund ATF' movement

    Washington Examiner ^ | December 19, 2020 | Paul Bedard,
    They are the strongest opponents of defunding the police, but now, conservatives are carving out an exception ⁠— the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. Long considered anti-gun, the agency has provoked alarm with Second Amendment advocates due to the agency’s recent targeting of gunmakers, including a raid this month on a producer of so-called "ghost guns" and this week’s targeting of AR-15-style pistols. With President-elect Joe Biden poised to unleash new gun control measures, fears are heightened that ATF will be the tip of the spear. Marjorie Taylor Greene ... 10 years ago today, U.S. Border Patrol...

    The Federalist ^ | 12/16/2020 | Ryan Cleckner
    If we have a Joe Biden administration in the White House on Jan. 20, we will have the most overtly anti-gun president in American history. Biden’s plan lists effectively every gun control measure ever proposed: banning “assault weapons,” banning “high-capacity” magazines, limiting the number of guns an American can purchase, holding manufacturers liable for the criminal misuse of their products, and many, many more. Out of the myriad options a Biden administration will have to infringe on our constitutional protections, which will they choose first? Based on my experience with clients and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives...
  • If ATF Comes A Knocking, Only Surrender Your 80% Frame or Receiver Under Protest!

    Prince Law Office ^ | 12/14/2020 | Joshua Prince, Esq.
    As many in the Firearms Community are aware, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) raided Polymer80, Inc last week and since then, there is at least one report of a customer being visited by ATF and forced to surrender their “P80.” Given what appears to be ATF’s active enforcement of its interpretive jiggery-pokery, ever changing interpretations of the Gun Control Act and implementing regulations, it is important that any individual confronted by ATF regarding this newly minted interpretation, advise the agent that he/she is surrendering the items under protest, that you do not consent to the forfeiture...
  • Gun Confiscation is Impossible in America

    Americans know that they should resist delusional, prohibitionist tyrants. The American Revolution started when the British tried to seize Continental muskets and gunpowder. Jefferson reminded us that the “tree of liberty” occasionally has to be “watered with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” Patrick Henry demanded liberty or death. Samuel Adams refused to consent to the “tranquility of servitude” over the “animating contest of freedom.” Real Americans remember those patriots and are determined to uphold their legacies. We won’t surrender our weapons to confiscatory, leftist tyrants. That’s why gun confiscation is impossible. People like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris want...
  • Jon Ossoff Wants Beto O’Rourke-Style Gun Control for Georgians

    Democrat Senate candidate Jon Ossoff’s plan to ban semiautomatic rifles is reminiscent of Robert “Beto” O’Rourke’s not-so-distant pledge to take away Americans’ AR-15s. It was during the 2019 Democrat presidential primary when O’Rourke said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” O’Rourke bobbed and weaved for weeks when questioned about the confiscatory pledge. Then, in typical Democrat fashion, tried to paint police enforcement of a ban on AR-15 ownership as something other than confiscation. On October 16, 2019, he told MSBNC’s Morning Joe that police would go to homes to “recover” the rifles from the non-compliant once...
  • Texas Bill Would Require Homeowners To ‘Retreat’ Before Using Deadly Force

    Austin, TX – Texas lawmakers are considering a bill that would require homeowners to “retreat” before using deadly force in certain situations. Under Texas’ “castle doctrine,” citizens have the right to use deadly force to defend their “land or tangible, movable property,” KPRC reported. House Bill 196, filed by Rep. Terry Meza (D-Irving) earlier this month, would require homeowners to be “unable to safely retreat” before they could legally use deadly force against a perpetrator. Property owners would also no longer be able to use deadly force to stop aggravated robbery or robbery crimes under the bill, according to KPRC....

    Joe Biden plans to move quickly against guns, adding the issue to his list of first executive orders, according to his top policy aide. Stef Feldman, the national policy director of Biden's presidential campaign, included the Democrat’s gun plan in a list of initial executive actions set to be unleashed after Inauguration Day. Speaking in a Zoom briefing hosted by Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service, she said that Biden is planning to “make big, bold changes through executive action, not just on policing and climate like we talked about previously, but in healthcare and education on gun...

    Democrat Senate candidate Jon Ossoff (GA) is endorsed by Giffords, the Gabby Giffords-founded gun control group focused on firearm laws and legislation. Ossoff is headed toward a January 5, 2021, runoff election against incumbent Sen. David Perdue (R-GA). And whereas Perdue is pro-Second Amendment, anti-gun control, Ossoff wants to ban the sales of semiautomatic rifles and magazines Democrats deem “high capacity.” Moreover, he wants to institute red flag laws, universal background checks for gun purchases, place more restrictions on gun shows, and license that semiautomatic rifles and handguns that are already privately owned. The NRA endorsed Perdue, seeing him as...
  • Why is the 2nd Amendment Important?

    Why is the 2nd Amendment important? Because the 2nd Amendment is the one that guarantees all of the others. Sure, we need to defend free speech because without it we can’t express ideas (good or bad) openly or criticize the government. But can it back itself up on its own? No, if we had only the 1st Amendment but not the 2nd, we could lose our right to free speech at any moment. The government could simply take it away. Just look at what is happening in Hong Kong; when its citizens tried to exercise their human right to free...

If they stole one presidential election and got away with it then who would ever give up the most powerful seat in the world. Granted it wont be in 4 years but you get the idea. If biden is inaugurated America will have officially "jumped the shark" and a sharp decline will infact ensue. There will be no way to legally get back the reins of power. Someone once said you have to shoot your way out of socialism. Buy guns and ammo because we're...
