    Relatives of a second gunman charged with murder over the Kansas City Super Bowl parade set up two fundraisers for ‘hospital bills’, as he is pictured for the first time. Jamie Batres, 39, launched a cash appeal on Classful to get her to and from the hospital to visit her son, alleged killer Dominic Miller, 18, along with two photos of him lying seriously ill in his hospital bed.

    The mother of a man charged with murder over the Kansas City Super Bowl parade shooting set has up a GoFundMe for him - as his sister insists he's not a monster. Teneal Burnside set up the cash appeal for her alleged killer son Lyndell Mays, 23, complete with a photo of him seriously-ill in his hospital bed. He was among those shot at the celebration on February 14 - and was blasted nine times. Prosecutors now say Mays was one of the two men to blame for the horrific bloodbath, although his unnamed sister insists he was just trying...

    The Second Amendment doesn’t grant a person the right to bear arms—the Second Amendment recognizes an individual’s God-given right to self-defense, and prohibits the American government from infringing upon that right. Well in other news that isn’t news, Commiefornia is ignoring all that law and precedent; on Friday, Democrat Assemblyman Mike Gipson put forth a bill that would require insurance companies to ask a litany of very specific questions regarding personal firearms an applicant may or may not have. Then, these insurers would need to hand this information over to state agencies and lawmakers. From AWR Hawkins at Breitbart:The bill,...

    Chapel Hill, NC — Violent abortion supporters have been dangerously harassing peaceful, pro-life advocates on the sidewalk of Planned Parenthood in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Love Life, along with several other groups and churches, are on the sidewalk almost daily to offer women compassionate support and life-affirming options as they hurry from their cars, scared and often alone, to the doors of Planned Parenthood Chapel Hill. In 2023, this dangerous clinic sent four women to the hospital in just five months – all for severe hemorrhaging. Operation Rescue, along with other national groups like CEC For Life and Life Legal...

    A recent Lifeway survey of Protestant pastors shows that armed congregants protect more than 50% of protestant churches. While these security arrangements vary in their level of sophistication on a church-by-church basis, nearly the same number of pastors who report the use of armed congregants report that there is an intentional plan in place to prepare for threats posed by an active shooter. Though various state and local laws currently regulate and limit the use of concealed carry weapons by church security teams in various locale, a proposed federal law would criminalize the preparations made by many armed church security...

    This is some sad news that we've known was coming for several years, but now the end is almost upon us. Remington Arms has been manufacturing quality firearms in the upstate New York village of Ilion for more than two centuries. At one time it employed thousands of workers and it could be argued that Ilion wouldn't have really existed without it. But next month, the doors will close and the last workers will be sent to the unemployment lines. But that won't be the end of Remington's various product lines. You'll still be able to find them in gun...
  • ATF Preparing Rule To Regulate Private Gun Sales, Requiring Background Check

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) is reportedly preparing a new rule to regulate private gun sales, requiring background checks via the FBI. Empower Oversight, representing IRS agents in the Hunter Biden case, has raised concerns about the move, calling it an “unconstitutional” power grab. The group argues that only Congress has the authority to enact such changes due to a 1986 law prohibiting background checks for private firearm sales. “Such an expansive rule that treats all private citizens the same as federal firearms licensees would circumvent the separation of powers in the Constitution, which grants ‘all...

    leven years ago, Democratic state lawmakers faced protests and recalls over their passage of a high-capacity magazine ban and universal background checks for gun buyers in the wake of the Aurora and Sandy Hook mass shootings. The legislation cost two senators their seats, including the Senate president, and a third resigned. The backlash left a scar on Democratic leaders, even as the recalled lawmakers said they had no regrets. For several years, legislators introduced few gun reform bills, and none passed. But that timidity is now long gone — a turnaround attributable to increasing Democratic electoral dominance in Colorado and...

    Whistleblowers at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are sounding the alarm on a reported 1,300-page draft document that allegedly justifies a proposed rule that would effectively ban private gun sales, according to a watchdog group. "The fact that inside ATF sources are blowing the whistle on this draft rule is an indication of what a difficult position it would put the ATF in. ATF agents did not sign up to go after law-abiding citizens for private sales protected under the Second Amendment of the Constitution," Tristan Leavitt, president of watchdog group Empower Oversight, said in a...

    The mayor of New York City has officially declared social media an 'environmental toxin' and 'public health hazard' in the same category as tobacco and guns. In an advisory released Wednesday, Mayor Eric Adams criticized TikTok, YouTube and Facebook, blaming them for the mental health crisis plaguing tens of millions of children in the US — with rates of teen depression hitting their highest levels in a decade in the latest surveys. In the declaration, city officials called on parents to impose 'tech-free times' for children and urged teens to consider turning off their notifications and tracking their emotions while...

    During his presidency, Barack Obama infamously asserted the power to assassinate American citizens. This isn’t a widely known fact because, well, the media didn’t exactly cover this story as they would have with a white president of either party. Barack Obama was “the first black president,” after all. It wasn’t enough for Obama to hold that historic distinction; he had to have a legacy of success, unmarred by scandal or controversy. It was, at times, difficult to avoid covering various controversies and scandals, but the media did its best to create the false impression that Obama was scandal-free—a fiction many...

    Two Republican state lawmakers in New Mexico filed a resolution Wednesday to impeach Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, accusing her of breaking her oath to the U.S. Constitution over her use of emergency public health orders to restrict the right to carry firearms in some public places. Reps. Stefani Lord and John Block claim that with the restriction, Lujan Grisham infringed upon the rights of New Mexicans. "The rights of New Mexicans are not up for debate, and no matter how hard Lujan Grisham tries to violate the Constitution, she will never succeed," Lord said in a statement. "I stood...

    January 2024 marks the twentieth annual National Stalking Awareness Month. This month is recognized as a call to action to help educate the public about what stalking is, the seriousness and dangers of stalking, and how to protect yourself. So, what exactly is stalking? Stalking is a pattern of repeated, unwanted behavior which would cause a reasonable person to feel fearful, intimidated, or harassed. According to the CDC, one in three women and one in six men experience stalking at some point in their lifetimes. With statistics like that, our criminal justice system, lawmakers, and the general public should be...

She has not yet made her first appearance in federal court in Eugene. Agents first were alerted in late September to a Facebook post that West put on a transgender women’s support group page,...

    In Florida, U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle has ruled that the federal law prohibiting people from possessing firearms inside post offices is unconstitutional. The ruling is based on the 2022 Supreme Court ruling New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen recognized a person’s right to carry a handgun in public for self-defense.The case concerned Emmanuel Ayala, a U.S. Postal Service truck driver, who had a concealed weapons permit and held a Smith & Wesson 9mm handgun in a fanny pack for self-defense. When police tried to stop him, he ran and struggled with officers. While dismissing the...
