On August 15, Smith & Wesson, represented by Schaerr Jaffe, sent a letter to House Oversight and Reform Committee Chair Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) regarding the committee’s subpoena, which was issued on August 1. Smith & Wesson CEO Mark Smith said this subpoena amounts to nothing more than politicians and the media attempting to “disparage” Smith & Wesson. He elaborated in a statement on Monday: A number of politicians and their lobbying partners in...

    The FBI considers someone who displays a particular emblem representing the Second Amendment as a possible "Militia Violent Extremist," according to a new report from Project Veritas. The organization set up by James O'Keefe in 2010 as a nonprofit journalism enterprise to facilitate undercover reporting said it had obtained from a whistleblower an FBI document "which shows how the Bureau classifies American citizens it deems to be potential 'Militia Violent Extremists.'" "The FBI cites symbols, images, phrases, events, and individuals that agents should look out for when identifying alleged domestic terrorists," the report explains about the document marked for "FBI...

    The Associated Press ^ | August 4, 2022 | By LINDSAY WHITEHURST and ALANNA DURKIN RICHER
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court ruling expanding gun rights threatens to upend firearms restrictions across the country as activists wage court battles over everything from bans on AR-15-style guns to age limits. The decision handed down in June already has led one judge to temporarily block a Colorado town from enforcing a ban on the sale and possession of certain semi-automatic weapons. The first major gun decision in more than a decade, the ruling could dramatically reshape gun laws in the U.S. even as a series of horrific mass shootings pushes the issue back into the headlines. “The gun...

    Friday, during an appearance on FNC’s “Hannity,” Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) offered a defense of the Second Amendment, arguing that it was an “equalizer.” According to the Colorado freshman Republican lawmaker, gun rights were women’s rights. “[T]he Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting,” she said. “And it certainly doesn’t have to do with anything with deers having Kevlar vests. It’s actually an equalizer. Gun rights are women’s rights. And I need an equalizer to defend myself against a larger potential aggressor. That’s why most people carry. So they have a way to defend themselves. And we have the...

    In another Democrat narrative-debunking situation, a law-abiding citizen carrying a firearm stopped a shooting in progress at a mall food court in Indiana over the weekend — and is likely to be ignored by most within the mainstream media despite overwhelming praise from leaders in the community. In a Greenwood, Indiana, mall — roughly 15 miles south of Indianapolis — a man armed with a rifle opened fire on Sunday evening in the food court, fatally shooting three individuals and wounding two others. But then, a "a good Samaritan with a handgun," according to Greenwood police Chief James Ison, put...

  • Brooks: Even Banning Future Gun Purchases Wouldn’t Reduce Amount of Guns, You Need Buyback Like Australia

    On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks argued that even a ban on future purchases of guns would not reduce the number of guns in America and that reducing the number of guns in America would require something akin to an Australia-style gun buyback program. And that he has never understood why a gun buyback like Australia’s “is an affront to anybody.” Because it’s a choice whether to sell your gun back or not. Brooks began by saying that the chance of the federal government taking further action on guns “Seems remote.” He added, “I’ve never understood...

    A Republican running for Congress in Arizona ripped Democrats a new one during a campaign ad. Jerone Davison released a new political campaign ad aimed to confront "angry Democrats" while holding an AR-15. The video shows Davison sitting at his kitchen table with an American flag mug looking out his window as members of the Klu Klux Klan (KKK), dawning white robes with donkeys printed on the front and armed with weapons such as pitchforks, approach his home. In the ad posted to Twitter with the caption "Make Rifles Great Again," Davison blasted Democrats who say AR-15s aren't needed. "Democrats...

    Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) reacted to the Highland Park parade attack during a Monday press conference by suggesting America’s Founding Fathers would not support a “constitutional right to own an assault weapon.” Pritzker tweeted a video of his comments on the attack, saying, in part, “Our Founders carried muskets, not assault weapons, and I don’t think a single one of them would have said that you have a constitutional right to an assault weapon with a high-capacity magazine.” In another portion of his comments Pritzker said, “It does not have to be this way, and yet we as a...

    If not for a quick-thinking and armed off-duty corrections officer in New York, there would potentially have been a mass-shooting incident in Queens on Sunday evening. Correction Officer David Donegan was at a memorial event Sunday night when two men pulled out guns and pointed them at the crowd. "Yesterday evening, as a crowd of people were observing an event remembering the passing of a friend, two individuals pulled out weapons and pointed them, firing at the crowd including our Correction Officer, David Donegan.

    A study conducted by FOX News Digital shows higher gun ownership “[does] not correlate with more gun murders.” FOX News Digital compiled data from FBI stats on 2019 and reported “many states with higher percentages of gun ownership had lower or similar murder and gun murder rates to states with strict gun control.” The findings showed, “Montana and Wyoming came in the top spots for states with the highest percentages of gun ownership, with more than 66% of households with at least one firearm. However, the states also saw murder and gun murder rates similar to states with strict gun...

    No one on the Left is taking the Supreme Court’s ruling on abortion well. It didn’t ban abortion, but you’d never guess watching MSNBC, CNN, or reading the many liberal accounts on Twitter, you’d think a religious coup had taken place. Not the case. We’ve had an array of emotions here. We’ve had ‘this will lead to civil war’ takes, along with the usual liberal talking points that they peddle whenever they disagree with something. You know, the usual this is sexist, racist, classist, ableist, and ageist lines. Just look at the signs of the pro-abortionists at the Supreme Court....

    On Thursday morning the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 to strike down restrictive "may issue" concealed carry laws in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen. Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the majority opinion and explained how the Second Amendment is not a second-class right. The arguments made by the dissenting justices were wildly irrelevant from the issue of constitutionality and current law, prompting Justice Samuel Alito to file a separate, concurring opinion destroying their claims. He also took issue with their ignorance and arrogance surrounding the facts of lawful gun ownership vs. criminality. (Take a look, bolding is mine)
