    In a January 8, 2021, statement recognizing the tenth anniversary of the shooting that wounded Gabby Giffords, President-elect Joe Biden pledged to “defeat the NRA.” Biden’s full statement recounted the January 8, 2011, attack, which killed six and left Giffords and others wounded, then transitioned to praising Giffords for the gun control work she undertook after the incident. The statement concluded: “As President, I pledge to continue to work together with Congresswoman Giffords, and with survivors, families, and advocates across the country, to defeat the NRA and end the epidemic of gun violence in America.”

    President-elect ( Joe Biden) on Jan. 8 promised to “defeat” the National Rifle Association while he’s in office.Biden’s official Twitter account was responding to former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.), who was among 14 people wounded in a shooting rampage by Jared Lee Loughner in Tucson in 2011; six people died in the attack. Giffords had recounted how her life and community “changed forever.”“But the attack did not break me—or the people I represented in Congress. We came together, turned pain into purpose, and found hope in each other,” she wrote, adding that she continues to work to “achieve a safer...

    The NRA just one-upped Santa — lock, stock and barrel. The gun rights group delivered Nerf guns to a 4-year-old Illinois boy who burst into tears when a politically correct mall Santa told him he couldn’t have one earlier this month. “Mean Santa didn’t want to give me a Nerf gun for Christmas,‘’ said little Michael DeCarlo, dressed in Army camouflage, in a video posted on the National Rifle Association’s website over the weekend.

    America’s recent election and the COVID-19 pandemic fueled a gun-buying binge that continued in November, making 2020 into the top year ever for firearms sales — by a country mile.The FBI reported today that it recorded a 42% surge in background checks for firearms in November. Last month, it conducted 3.6 million. In November 2019, it was 2.5 million.And already this year, the FBI has recorded 35.7 million background checks. In all of record-setting 2019, there were 28.3 million checks.(Screenshot via FBI)That means 2020 background checks for guns are already 25% over last year, and there is still a month...

    RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – The head of the gun-rights group that organized a rally that drew 22,000 people to the state Capitol in January said a similar event won’t happen next year, claiming that a “double standard” allowed gun-control advocates to book the majority of time slots for Lobby Day. Philip Van Cleave, the president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, told members of the organization in a message this week that when he tried to apply for the 11 a.m. slot for next year’s Lobby Day, a tradition that gives citizens an opportunity to share issues they find important...

    A grand jury in Santa Clara, California, has issued an indictment accusing Apple’s chief security officer, Thomas Moyer, of offering bribes to secure concealed carry permits for Apple employees. Moyer allegedly promised to donated 200 iPads worth $70,000 to the sheriff’s office in exchange for four concealed carry licenses “withheld from Apple employees,” according to a press release from the Santa Clara District Attorney Jeff Rosen. “Tom Moyer is innocent of the charges filed against him. He did nothing wrong and has acted with the highest integrity throughout his career. We have no doubt he will be acquitted at trial,”...

    With the violent crime rate increasing disproportionately in urban communities, it's no surprise that a recent phone survey of black voters found that 80 percent felt gun violence was an “extremely serious” problem. However, it seems this surge in violence actually has many in the black community changing their views on gun ownership. In 1993, 74 percent of African-Americans favored gun control. Fast forward to 2018, and a Crime Prevention Research Center report found that concealed carry permits are on the rise – especially among minorities. In Texas alone, the number of blacks with permits has grown by almost 140...
  • The pandemic and riots are changing views on guns

    11/11/2020 9:30:37 AM PST · by Impala64ssa · 10 replies
    The COVID-19 pandemic and riots across the country are changing the views many people have about guns and their importance to self defense. Liberal politicians are working to defund the police in major cities which has caused an increase in crime. Citizens of those cities are learning that the police cannot protect them and they must protect themselves. Gun sales have surged primarily due to first time gun buyers rushing to buy weapons to protect themselves. The dramatic increase in gun and ammo sales have resulted in an ammo shortage. Many first time gun buyers are learning how difficult it can be in some...

    The “Lincoln Project,” a political action committee of former Republicans that raised tens of millions of dollars in 2020 to defeat President Donald Trump, has declared it will back Democrat Jon Ossoff in the upcoming Senate runoff in Georgia. “We’re staying in the fight: to defeat Trumpism we must also defeat David Perdue,” the Lincoln Project tweeted Friday, referring to the current Republican incumbent. “Let’s elect Jon Ossoff.” If both Democrats win their respective races, the Senate would be deadlocked 50-50, with the vice president breaking a tie. Ossoff, 33, has never held elected office. In 2017, he ran in...
