    They are illegal, deadly, and federal agents are finding them on the streets of New Orleans and Jefferson Parish. According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, criminals are turning ordinary weapons into machine guns, by simply attaching a tiny switch to the gun. The penny size device can turn a semi-automatic weapon into one that can fire up to 1100 hundred bullets a minute with a single pull of the trigger.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Most U.S. gun owners say they own firearms to protect themselves and their loved ones, surveys show. But a study published Monday suggests people who live with handgun owners are shot to death at a higher rate than those who don’t have such weapons at home. “We found zero evidence of any kind of protective effects” from living in a home with a handgun, said David Studdert, a Stanford University researcher who was the lead author of the Annals of Internal Medicine study. The study has several shortcomings. For example, the researchers said they could not...

    Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke appears to have flip-flopped – again – on confiscating AR-15s, as polls show him trailing behind Republican Gov. Greg Abbott. The failed senatorial and presidential contender said earlier this week that he has "no interest in taking" assault weapons from gun owners. "I’m not interested in taking anything from anyone," O’Rourke said to reporters in Tyler, Texas. "What I want to make sure that we do is defend the Second Amendment. I want to make sure that we protect our fellow Texans far better than we’re doing right now."

    President Biden insisted the answer to surging gun violence was “not to defund the police” or “abandon our streets” as he met with Mayor Eric Adams and Gov. Kathy Hochul at the NYPD’s Manhattan headquarters Thursday afternoon. “Mayor Adams, you and I agree, the answer is not to abandon our streets. The answer is to come together; police in communities building trust and making us all safer,” Biden said.
  • California city approves 1st US insurance law for gun owners [San Jose]

    A California city voted Tuesday night to require gun owners to carry liability insurance in what’s believed to be the first measure of its kind in the United States. The San Jose City Council overwhelmingly approved the measure despite opposition from gun owners who said it would violate their Second Amendment rights and promised to sue. The Silicon Valley city of about 1 million followed a trend of other Democratic-led cities that have sought to rein in violence through stricter rules. But while similar laws have been proposed, San Jose is the first city to pass one, according to Brady...

    New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) called on lawmakers in Washington, D.C., to pass gun reform after the city announced that one officer had been fatally shot and another remained in critical condition during a shooting in Harlem on Friday evening. “We don't make guns here. How are we removing thousands of guns off the street, and they still find their way into New York City? In the hands of people who are killers, constantly carbon highways of death, destroying our communities,” Adams said on Friday night. “We need Washington to join us and act now to stop the...

    New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) said Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” that she was looking into following Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D-CA) recent proposal to allow private citizens to sue manufacturers and distributors of assault weapons. Co-host Sarah Haines said, “Last the Supreme Court refused to block a Texas law that allows everyday citizens to sue abortion providers. Then California Governor Newsom wants to take that law and flip it and allow citizens in his state to sue assault weapon and ghost gun providers. Would you do something like this? is it an effective legal strategy?” AD James said,...

    The director of “Rust” told investigators that he had been standing beside the film’s cinematographer as the actor Alec Baldwin sat in a wooden church pew, rehearsing a scene in which he draws a gun and points it at the camera lens, according to an affidavit released Sunday night. The director, Joel Souza, said he then heard what “sounded like a whip and then loud pop.” Mr. Souza saw the cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins, grabbing her midsection and starting to stumble backward. Then he noticed he was bleeding from his shoulder. He and Ms. Hutchins had been shot by the lead...

When are you going to call on the chief executive, the basement dweller, to hold his own son accountable for his gun crimes?” Boebert said. She proceeded to note that Hunter Biden lied on a federal firearms application, and pointed out that this is punishable by up to 10 years and a $250,000 fine. “Of which, ten percent will not be going to the ‘big guy,'” Boebert quipped. “Rules for thee, but not for my crackhead, parmesan smoking, gun criminal son.” The...

    A Russian historian whose exposure of Soviet leader Josef Stalin's crimes angered state officials is due to begin enforced psychiatric testing this week amid fears he will be falsely declared insane, his lawyer said on Tuesday.

Some of Russia's leading cultural figures say Dmitriev was framed because his focus on Stalin's crimes - he found a mass grave with up...

    Biden Wants Your GunsThe administration prepares to disarm the population.Citing a “gun violence public health epidemic,” President Biden has promised both executive and legislative action against firearms rights. Epidemic? Homicides, including gun homicides, trended steadily downward from the early 1990s through 2019. The surge in crime and homicides starting in 2020 coincided with the riots, urban disorder, and defund-the-police activism that roiled America last summer.But guns—not the actions of leftist politicians, activists, and media operatives—are the real problem, according to Biden. He demanded that Congress, among other things, ban so-called assault weapons, establish a universal background check system for all...

    Arizona has signed a new law that would prohibit federal gun laws that would violate the Second Amendment. The HB2111 legislation was signed into law Tuesday by Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, ensuring rights of gun owners are protected from potential overreaching gun laws sought by President Joe Biden's administration. The law seeks to prohibit police and sheriffs from enforcing new federal gun laws, which critics say will undermine the rule of law and discourage law enforcement officers from enforcing federal gun laws to protect the public. Critics also say it is an unconstitutional measure that will cost taxpayers to...

    The announcement, expected Thursday, comes amid a spate of high-profile shootings and as some advocates have grown frustrated in the White House's delay. President Joe Biden is expected to unveil a long-awaited package of executive actions to curb gun violence Thursday at the White House, according to four people familiar with the plan. The announcement comes nearly three months into Biden’s term, a delay that had frustrated activists who wanted the president to fulfill a campaign pledge to take action on gun violence on his first day in office. That frustration only grew after a slate of mass shootings in...

    Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) on March 30 said that more gun laws will restrict law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves while doing little to stop violence, coming after the House passed two gun control bills last month. Most Americans consider using a gun to defend themselves as their last line of defense, Perry told The Epoch Times. “But these two bills don’t really do anything except infringe upon the rights of law abiding citizens,” he said. “Unfortunately, [lawmakers] claim it’s to address the problems of these mass shootings. But neither one of these bills would effectively make a difference in any...

    ATLANTA—A Georgia man who professed a passion for guns and God was in custody on Tuesday night after a string of shootings that police said appeared to target Asian women at massage parlors and left eight people dead. Aaron Long, 21, of Woodstock, Georgia, was caught on video at the crime scenes and later nabbed on a highway two hours south of Atlanta following a police chase, authorities said. Police stressed that it was still much too early to announce a motive, but the horrific attacks come amid a wave of targeted violence against the Asian-American community. Details about the...
