    Anybody care to guess what this week’s progressive talking point is? The Truth About Guns recaps:That’s right: Guns kill, ergo more guns kill more people as the Jr. Senator from Connecticut explains to us blockheads.Nope, not a coincidence: they’ll tell us when something is a coincidence. And since this is NOT a coincidence, it must be SCIENCE!See how simple that is? Or how simple it would be if mini-Marxist Hogg hadn’t confused the issue with a countervailing progressive doctrine:I think it’s about fear. I think it’s about the fact that as a country, oftentimes we would rather turn on each...

    Those events truly highlighted the absolute worst in what we are as a nation and they shouldn’t be forgotten. Each even gave us questions on where our society has gone wrong, what role our modern culture of music, movies, video games, and of course guns played in allowing those horrific events to unfold. Yet, the deadliest school massacre in U.S. history has largely been left out of the conversion. Few today even remember the Bath School Massacre, and it is rarely – if ever – even mentioned by the media alongside those other mass killings. The reason is that it...

    Over a dozen people were injured in a shooting near a Chicago funeral home late Tuesday afternoon. The gunfire broke out at the Graham funeral home, located at 1018 W. 79th Street—in the city’s Auburn Gresham neighborhood. According to CBS 2, ‘there was some kind of planned ambush outside the funeral home, where a memorial service was going on for a homicide victim.’ The Chicago Fire Department reports at least 11 victims were taken to hospitals. All were listed in various conditions. “All we saw was just bodies laying everywhere,” witness Arnita Gerder told NBC Chicago. “Shot up everywhere, all...

    More than a dozen people have been fatally shot, including a teenager at her college graduation party and a clothing designer who was washing his car. It has been nearly a quarter century since New York City experienced as much gun violence in the month of June as it has seen this year. The city logged 125 shootings in the first three weeks of the month, more than double the number recorded over the same period last year, police data show. Gunmen opened fire during house parties, barbecues and dice games, and carried out coldly calculated street executions. More than...

    CHARLESTON, SC—Joe Biden made the incredible claim at last night's debate that he is the last remaining survivor of gun violence on the earth. "Tragically, 7,767,050,847 have been killed by gun violence in the last week alone, and I am the only one left," he said somberly, apparently oblivious to the living people all around him. "If anyone were left to hear me today, my message would be, 'Please, never again should we let billions be killed by guns.'" "We must pass legislation to ensure that deadly, fully automatic blunderbusses and cannons be banned from our great land. Thank you,...

    During the Democratic Debate in South Carolina, there were plenty of claims.Mike Bloomberg let it slip that he "bought" off Congressional reps with his millions. Elizabeth Warren repeated her debunked, yet oft-spoken tale about being fired when she was pregnant. And then there was Joe Biden. The former vice president claimed that 150 million people have died from "gun violence." 150 million people have been killed since 2007, when Bernie voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability. More than all the wars! Including Vietnam! From that point on, carnage on our streets, and I want to tell you,...

    Suzanne Saltisiak organized the One Day of Gun Violence Memorial at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center on Tuesday, January 7, 2020. (Stephen M. Katz) One hundred T-shirts lined up like tombstones were displayed on Municipal Center grounds Tuesday, a reminder of the consequences of gun violence, said the organizer. “It’s a memorial for today’s victims,” said Virginia Beach resident Suzanne Saltisiak, a clinical social worker, who planted the colorful cotton shirts on the metal frames of leftover campaign yard signs. Written on the shirts are statistics about gun violence and suicide, as well as quotes, including some from survivors...

    When my pager goes off at University Hospital in Newark, and I see a line that reads “Pediatric gunshot wound, 20 minutes out,” I immediately run down to the ER whether I’m on call or not, because I can’t help but wonder if it’s my kid. That’s the added twist of being a mother of three and a trauma surgeon in America. I worry, like other mothers, about my childrens’ safety, and it’s my job to expect patients rushed to our ER who may have minutes left to live.
  • Government Funded 'Gun Violence' Research Is Really Political Propaganda

    On Monday, House and Senate negotiators announced a deal where $25 million in taxpayer funds will be spent on gun violence research, $12.5 million is earmarked exclusively for public health researchers. If history is any guide, but of the rest will also end up going to public health researchers.  Headlines claimed: “Congress reaches deal to fund gun violence research for first time in decades.” The funding described as “a major win for Democrats.” While that may sound like a good idea at first glance, it wouldn’t do anything to reduce gun violence in our country.It should go without saying that everyone...
  • “Preventing Gun Violence” is not a Compelling Governmental Interest

    In a recent column, well-known Reason editor and writer Jacob Sullum made a likely unintentional error. He writes that “preventing gun violence” is a compelling government interest. From townhall.com: Restrictions on fundamental rights usually pass muster only if they are narrowly tailored to further a compelling government interest — in this case, preventing gun violence. “Gun violence” is an Orwellian phrase that compels the user to focus on guns rather than on illegitimate actions. “Preventing gun violence” is not a compelling government interest. Preventing murder can be a compelling government interest, though, in our federal system of limited governmental powers,...

    Warren's #EndTrafficViolence Pushes Orwellian Word Use Too Far Candidate Elizabeth Warren has opened a window into the Progressive mindset. It does much to explain the war on guns and the Second Amendment.Ride Fast creates great satire with his comment: Don't get me started on Jeeps. No one needs a car that was originally designed for war. In previous articles I have elaborated on how “gun violence” is an Orwellian phrase, designed to force you to think about disparate issues in a specific way.  It is designed to link suicides, murders, accidents, and justified homicides all together with only  one solution:...

    Attorney General Bill Barr will announce a new Department of Justice initiative tomorrow called Project Guardian. Project Guardian, which will be implemented through ATF and overseen by DOJ, will focus on preventing "gun violence" in cities across the country.

He will be joined by ATF Acting Director Regina Lombardo, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee D. Michael Dunavant and ATF Special Agent in Charge of the Nashville Field Division Marcus Watson. In the meantime, President Trump's DOJ has been setting records for prosecutions against felony...

    Citing “gun violence,” the University of Virginia has canceled the 21-gun salute portion of its Veterans Day ceremony, an annual tradition that dates back at least a decade. In a statement posted to social media on Saturday, university President James Ryan stated the reason was two-fold: “to minimize disruptions to classes, given that this event is located at the juncture of four primary academic buildings and is held at a time that classes are in session; and second, recognizing concerns related to firing weapons on the Grounds in light of gun violence that has happened across our nation, especially on...

    MEXICO CITY—Last week, hundreds of gunmen from the Sinaloa cartel overpowered military forces in fighting that killed at least a dozen people, blocked the airport and major roads, and terrorized the city of Culiacán for hours until the Mexican government capitulated and freed the son of legendary drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán. There doesn’t seem to be an end to the bloodshed. But authorities have finally figured out a way to end all the senseless violence that has plagued the country. In a statement, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has announced that the Mexican government has hired Robert “Beto”...

    Vox recently published an article by German Lopez that makes a logical error. The article conflates an increase in “gun deaths” with a decrease in public safety. The jump is made from an article published last year, in 2018, where the Rand Corporation published a chart based on a number of different and dubious studies on “gun deaths”. From the previous article: But there were some things that could be gleaned from the available evidence. While RAND as a nonpartisan group avoided any sweeping policy conclusions in its analysis, its review does seem to point in a direction, based on...

    For the second time since classes resumed at public schools in St. Louis this month, grief counselors will be on hand at an elementary school on Monday to comfort friends of 8-year-old Jurnee Thompson, a third-grader gunned down while standing in front of a restaurant with relatives following a football game. Since April, nine children under the age of 17 have been killed by gun violence in the city of St. Louis, and authorities say no one has been charged in any of the slayings. "We are all at risk," a frustrated St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson said at a...
