    New York Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul said the ambush shooting of two New York City police officers Friday signaled the need for congressional action in Washington, D.C. to help "fight the scourge of illegal guns on our streets."

    President Joe Biden complained about the number of guns sold in the United States after an armed terrorist suspect took four hostages at a Texas synagogue on Sunday. “There’s so many guns that have been sold of late; it’s just ridiculous,” Biden said when asked by reporters on Sunday about gun control after the incident.

  • 'Rust' armorer blames Alec Baldwin for fatal shooting because he failed to turn up to a 'cross draw' training session in lawsuit against firm that she claims supplied live ammunition instead of dummy rounds

    The armorer for doomed western 'Rust' - where a cinematographer was shot dead by a live bullet in October - is laying part of the blame on gunman Alec Baldwin for failing to attend a training session. Hannah Gutierrez-Reed filed a lawsuit in a Bernalillo County, New Mexico court on Wednesday that claims Baldwin, 63, ignored a request to attend a 'cross draw' session about a week before the tragedy. The rookie armorer also faulted assistant director David Halls for failing to follow set protocol when he allegedly handed Baldwin the weapon without first calling on her to inspect it,...

    While the elite flock to Beverly Hill’s only gun shop looking for guns for self-defense, poor California minorities are finding it difficult to get through the state’s many gun control laws and acquire a firearm to use to keep themselves and their families safe. On December 30, 2021, Breitbart News noted that the rich and famous were flocking to Beverly Hill Guns for protection from the craziness that has overtaken day-to-day life in Los Angeles. FOX News now reports that other Californians, particularly minorities, are finding the acquisition of a firearm difficult. Geneva Solomon, owner of Los Angeles County’s Redstone...
  • America’s Most Notorious Billionaire Leaves His Mark on the World from a $2.3 Billion Education Behemoth to Racial Politics

    Billionaire George Soros said he is working to “bend” the arc of history “in the right direction.” In Soros’ case, that direction is far to the left. To do it, he donated over $32 billion to his Open Society Foundations since 1984, to further leftist ideology and activism well beyond his own lifetime. Soros has committed a combined sum of more than $2.3 billion to create a global university network to push his extreme ideology. At 91, Soros hasn’t slowed down his radical agenda to inundate the American people — and the world — with propaganda involving leftist academia and...

    After decades of blaming gun on the streets for violent crime, and elections of district attorneys who actually believe that crap, Hollywood's elites are finally getting religion on gun ownership.They're arming up. According to the Daily Mail:As Long Angeles crime spirals out of control, even some of the city's wealthiest residents have flocked to Beverly Hills' only gun store to buy firearms to protect themselves and their belongings.Beverly Hills Guns first opened by appointment only in July 2020, and has seen upscale residents from Santa Monica to the Hollywood Hills increasingly in a panic following some high-profile smash and grabs...

    The Battle at Wounded Knee is a significant battle in American history, as it put an end to the Indian Wars and is marked as the last official defeat of the Native Americans. But what’s not taught in history lessons is that Wounded Knee was one of the first federally backed gun confiscations in the history of the United States, and it ended in the massacre of nearly 300 unarmed people. During the late 19th century, American Indians were allowed to purchase and carry firearms, just as white men were. The colonial gun laws did not bar Native Americans from...

    Yes, it’s Throwback Thursday. When you are as old as I am 2004 doesn’t sound like much of a throwback at first…until you consider it was nearly 18 years ago. That’s the year Boston Legal debuted. I had already sworn off network TV at that point so I missed it, although friends kept telling me it was really good. I stumbled across a few episodes somewhere a couple years back and mentally put it on my watch list and finally got around to it last summer when it popped up on Prime. Disappointingly it included commercials that can’t be skipped...

    Even the far-left Daily Beast is now admitting that you can’t trust Joe Biden. Joe Biden is losing Democrats. Joe Biden had a credibility problem his whole life. He was known for telling tall tales and sniffing kids. His family has multiple financial ties with China. His son is a drug addict who left evidence of taking drugs, hanging out with hookers, and cutting deals with China and other countries. This was all recorded on his laptop. Anyone who trusted Joe Biden a year ago was a fool. Now even some of those fools are waking up. The Daily Beast...

    From the first reports out of Kenosha, Wisconsin, when Kyle Rittenhouse defended himself by shooting three assailants during the Black Lives Matter riots of August 2020, I've looked at this entire, gut-wrenching affair with the eyes of a father. Of course, I recognized that Rittenhouse appeared to have acted in self-defense based on the video evidence that surfaced within days of the incident. But, to me, this story was not the epic Second Amendment debate or divisive racial scream-fest cable news and social media demanded it to be. To me, this story was and still is about a 17-year-old boy....
  • Bette Midler: 'In America It’s Easier to Take a Life Than to Get Health Insurance'

    Actress and singer Bette Midler is quickly becoming one of Hollywood's most addle-minded personalities. On Twitter Wednesday, she actually wrote, "Do you find it odd that in America today, it’s easier to take a life than to get health insurance?" Let's look at the facts, shall we? In 2011, there were about 14,000 homicides in our nation. That year, 48.6 million Americans were uninsured. That means about 261 million people in our country had health insurance that year, or 18,643 times the number of homicides. Midler might be a Divine singer, but her intellectual capacity is anything but.

    Democratic pollster Doug Schoen is sounding the alarm for the Democratic Party’s 2022 midterm prospects. In fact, according to Schoen and fellow pollster Carley Cooperman, "Democrats’ political prospects are significantly deteriorating" — and they have the data to prove it. What do the data show? Recent data collected by Schoen Cooperman Research proves the Democratic Party is becoming increasing unfavorable and vulnerable to massive losses in 2022. The key findings include: 53% of likely voters believe President Joe Biden "hasn’t paid enough attention to the country’s most important problems," compared to 38% who believe Biden's priorities are correct; 66% of...

    In a recent article in the New York Post, writer Michael Shellenberger found, with rising crime and violence in California, guns might be useful things in some situations. Situations other than hunting or target shooting. Situations involving the defense of self, family, and home. From the article: “I’ve always been anti-gun,” said Debbie Mizrahie of Beverly Hills. “But I am right now in the process of getting myself shooting lessons because I now understand that there may be a need for me to know how to defend myself and my family. We’re living in fear.”During Black Lives Matter protests last...

    Florida Sheriff Grady Judd, a man who God willing will one day be Attorney General under a DeSantis Administration, is praising a homeowner today. That homeowner protected his home against a home intruder. We've celebrated these stories before. A bad guy does bad guy things. He threatens the life of a good guy. That good guy has a gun. Shots get fired. The good guy isn't the one who is all Swiss-cheese'd up. What really makes this video 10/10 content is Sheriff Judd's vocal defense of the second amendment. "I’m proud of our homeowner for defending himself. It’s called a...

    Actor Alec Baldwin "requested a bigger gun" before the incident that left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead and director Joel Souza injured on the set of the movie Rust in October, police said. An investigation of the deadly shooting recently revealed that Baldwin had discussed his choice of weapon with Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed via email, according to an affidavit from Detective Alexandria Hancock, which was included in a search warrant issued to acquire Baldwin's cell phone on Thursday. "Alec said since they were in rehearsal, he assumed he had an empty gun, therefore when he shot the gun, Haylena [sic]...

    The investigation into exactly what happened on the set of the film Rust that led to a cinematographer's death is heating up. On Thursday, a search warrant was issued for actor Alec Baldwin’s cellphone. According to an affidavit filed in Santa Fe Magistrate Court, authorities asked for the iPhone in order to examine conversations between Alec Baldwin and a violent crimes detective with the Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office. The new development comes just weeks after Alec Baldwin's widely viewed ABC interview in which he said he never pulled the trigger. Baldwin claims that he was holding the Colt .45...

    Speech and guns: two of the most contentious issues in America today, with controversies fueled not only by personal passions and identity politics but by competing interpretations of the Constitution. Perhaps more than any other parts of the Constitution, the First and Second Amendments inspire religious-like fervor in many Americans, with accordingly irrational results. As legal texts go, neither of the two amendments is a model of clarity or precision. More important, both are deeply flawed in their respective conceptualizations of some of the most important rights of a democratic society: the freedom of expression and religion and the right...

    It’s nice to be able to cover some good news for gun owners on Bearing Arms’ Cam & Co, and the unanimous decision handed down by the Georgia Supreme Court this week is very good news indeed for those of us who recognize that the Second Amendment protects a fundamental and substantive right to both keep and bear arms. On Tuesday, the state’s high court rejected an argument by DeKalb County officials, who’d claimed that when the background checks for concealed carry applicants come back with incomplete information, county probate judges are within their rights to deny an applicant their...
