Bill Weld Just Compared AR-15s to “Weapons of Mass Destruction,” & Said Pistols Were Even Worse!
Post Date: 2016-08-15 07:07:54 by Deckard
William Weld, the former Republican governor of Massachusetts selected to be Gary Johnsons running mate on the Libertarian ticket, just made one of the mind-blowingly stupid comments Ive heard a politician make regarding firearms, bar none. 16 minutes and 50 seconds into an interview with Revolt TV, Weld dropped this stunning statement. The five-shot rifle, thats a standard military rifle; the problem is if you attach a clip to it so it can fire more shells and if you remove the pin so that it becomes an automatic weapon, and those are independent criminal offenses, Weld said. That is when they become, essentially, a weapon of mass destruction. The ...

ISIS Defector Says Group Mocks America's "Dumb" 2nd Amendment
Post Date: 2016-08-05 10:34:41 by Willie Green
ISIS-related shootings have become a serious issue that concerns many Americans, and it appears the terrorist group is taking advantage of Americas gun laws. In a new interview with the New York Times, former ISIS recruit Harry Sarfo claims that ISIS members believe it is easy to get a gun in America, and that benefits the terrorist group. For America and Canada, its much easier for them to get them over the social network, because they say the Americans are dumb they have open gun policies, Sarfo said. They say we can radicalize them easily, and if they have no prior record, they can buy guns, so we dont need to have no contact man who has to ...

The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, processed nearly 2.2 million checks last month.

This calendar year, with more than 16 million checks on record thus ...

3D Printed and Homemade “Ghost Guns” Must Now Be Registered in California
Post Date: 2016-07-27 10:37:01 by Deckard
By Everett Numbers California law will no longer look the other way on homemade guns, or ghost guns, as gun control advocates call them. Building a gun from parts or a 3D printer will soon require a background check. It will also require that a state-provided serial number be permanently affixed to the weapon. Governor Jerry Brown (D) signed Assembly Bill 857 into law on Friday, much to the chagrin of gun rights groups. Brown had vetoed similar legislation in 2014, according to the Sacramento Bee. I appreciate the authors concerns about gun violence, but I cant see how adding a serial number to a homemade gun would significantly advance public safety, ...

Americas largest shotgun manufacturer, O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., decided not to expand in Connecticut. Sure it was founded there 1919 and still has its corporate headquarters in North Haven. But in 2013 Connecticut rushed through legislation to ban some of Mossbergs popular products. As a result, Mossberg CEO, Iver Mossberg, says, Investing in Texas was an easy decision.

Post Date: 2016-07-05 08:49:54 by Stoner
A military veteran saved the life of a bald eagle last week by using a semi-automatic rifle. Jason Galvin and his wife noticed an eagle ensnared in rope around its leg hanging 70 feet above ground from a tree, near Rush City, Minnesota, WCCO reported. I thought it was dead at the time, Galvin said. I took a closer look with binoculars and saw that the head was moving, and I knew it was very much alive. Although Galvin and his wife Jackie contacted emergency authorities from the police to the fire department to the Department of Natural Resources, each one turned the couple away saying nothing could be done. Everyone had the same answer, Jackie said. ...

Wow, Justice Sotomayor Kind of Agrees With Justice Thomas on a Gun Case! by Chris White | 1:37 pm, June 27th, 2016 16 A case that garnered much less attention than the other two major Supreme Court rulings on Monday saw a rather unusual pairing of Justice Sonia Sotomayor partially joining the dissent of Justice Clarence Thomas in a federal firearms statute case. In the case of Voisine et al., v. United States, two men from Maine challenged their convictions under 18 U. S. C. §922(g)(9) that extended the federal prohibition on firearms possession by convicted felons to persons convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.

Law Professor Demands Repeal Of 'Outdated' Second Amendment, Makes Very Weak Case

George Leef Contributor Law Professor Demands Repeal Of 'Outdated' Second Amendment, Makes Very Weak Case The massacre in Orlando has prompted many demands for still more laws intended to prevent deranged killers like Omar Mateen from getting their hands on firearms. It has also occasioned more radical ideas, including the repeal of the Second Amendment. That is exactly what Drexel University law professor David S. Cohen proposes in his June 13th article in Rolling Stone, Why Its Time to Repeal the Second Amendment. Naturally, Cohens writing is full of passion. Anti-gun forces will no doubt laud his piece as visionary and compelling. It lacks any good ...

House Democrats ended their sit-in over gun control early Thursday afternoon after previously saying it could go on for days. The sit-in began Wednesday and lasted more than 25 hours as the Democrats tried to force a vote on several gun-control measures. When confronted with the prospect of continuing the sit-in with Republicans out of town and holiday plans approaching, members opted to end their protest. But they plan to start back up when Congress returns on July 5. Our goal is that when the House is in session and we have the possibility of bringing up [a gun-control] vote, that we are there being vocal about this issue, and that we keep this momentum going, ...
Mass Shooting Myth — U.S. Homicide Rate Hits 51-year Low as Gun Ownership Increased 141%
Post Date: 2016-06-22 12:15:49 by hondo68
In the wake of the Orlando nightclub massacre, politicians have attempted to use the tragedy as means of garnering public support for increased gun control measures. Four pieces of knee-jerk gun control legislation were defeated in Congress yesterday, but the debate surrounding gun rights continues unabated.The new narrative is that mass shootings, defined by the FBI as 3 or more people killed in one incident, are at epidemic level and thus require society to increase restrictions on gun ownership as a means of saving lives and lowering the U.S. homicide rate.However, this narrative flies in the face of reality as the homicide rate in the U.S. is actually at a 51-year low, ...

On June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen killed 49 people and wounded as many more at a gay club in Orlando the deadliest mass shooting in American history. The massacre reignited a now long-standing debate over whether civilians have any business owning military-style guns such as Mateens SIG Sauer MCX rifle. What if Im asked why, a day after this massacre, I want to buy the very type of gun used to slaughter people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando?

White House: Obama ‘Profoundly Frustrated’ — Ready For More Executive Action On Gun Control
Post Date: 2016-06-21 22:05:08 by Stoner
President Barack Obama again failed to push through additional gun control efforts in Congress even after blaming the terrorist attack in Florida on Republicans and supporters of the Second Amendment. White House press secretary Josh Earnest revealed that Obama was profoundly frustrated after Senate Republicans again blocked anti-gun legislation. Earnest suggested that the president would again turn to executive authority to try and enact gun control policies on his own. The president is determined to continue to use his executive authority to do everything possible to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldnt have them, he said. Earnest ...
Homeland Security Adviser Demands National Gun Registry
Post Date: 2016-06-21 21:43:09 by Stoner
Following the terror attack in Orlando, the dominant media/political narrative turned to gun control and now-discredited claims of the suspect's mental illness (claims which included gay-baiting). Now, one controversial former FBI agent -- and current consultant to the Obama administration on "countering violent extremism" (CVE) -- is suggesting a national gun registry be created. Such a registry would target millions of law-abiding American citizens. Gamal Abdel-Hafiz, born in Cairo, immigrated to the U.S. in 1990. He recently retired from the FBI after 22 turbulent years at the bureau. Following the Orlando attack, Abdel-Hafiz explained his rationale for creating a ...

Can we please stop pretending that the Second Amendment contains an unfettered right for everyone to buy a gun? It doesnt, and it never has. The claims made by the small number of extremists, before and after the Orlando, Fla., massacre, are based on a deliberate lie. The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution doesnt just say Congress shall not infringe the right to keep and bear arms. It specifically says that right exists in order to maintain a well-regulated militia. Even the late conservative Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia admitted those words werent in there by accident. Oh, and the Constitution doesnt just say a ...
