White House Shocked By Gun Sales Surge
Post Date: 2015-12-14 02:59:43 by tooconservative
This past Black Friday saw a record number of NICS checks the most gun sales in a single day. Ever. Over the last week the supply of modern firearms has been drained from the wholesale distribution channels United States. People are buying guns like its going out of style. If you ask the White House, the fact that record numbers of Americans are exercising their Constitutional right to own a gun is a tragedy and they have absolutely no idea why its happening. Its a classic Democrat response they dont understand anything about the firearms they demonize and they cant comprehend the gun owner mentality. It gets worse . . . From ...
WaPo fact check: Rubio’s right that gun-ban laws would have no impact on recent mass shootings
Post Date: 2015-12-13 07:24:42 by tooconservative
This started more than a week ago, when Marco Rubio appeared on CBS This Morning to rebut the Democrats demand for more gun laws in the wake of the terrorist attack in San Bernardino. Rubio explained to a skeptical panel that none of the proposals from Barack Obama or other Democrats would have prevented the San Bernardino shooting, or any of the other recent mass shootings (via Cortney OBrien): None of these crimes that have been committed or in this case what I believe is a terror attack in California would have been prevented by the expanded background checks, Rubio said. He added, This terrorist that was able to access these weapons is not ...
Backfire: CBS/NYT poll shows majority opposes “assault weapons” ban — for first time ever
Post Date: 2015-12-11 15:46:52 by tooconservative
Attempts by Democrats to demagogue the recent terror attack in San Bernardino to push a new ban on assault weapons has failed to convince Americans. In fact, it might have backfired altogether. For the first time in 20 years of polling the question, the CBS/New York Times poll finds a majority opposed to an assault weapons ban 44/50, even as gun control in other contexts polls more consistently with previous findings (via Twitchy and Patrick Egan): The NYT report saves this nugget for the second-to-last paragraph in its lengthy analysis of the survey: What has shifted notably are attitudes on gun control. Only 44 percent of Americans favor a ban on assault weapons, ...
2nd Amendment in Action: Armed Driver Stops Attempted Mass Shooting
Post Date: 2015-12-09 11:54:20 by Don
by AWR Hawkins9 Dec 201584 In light of the Democrat-sponsored gun control following the San Bernardino attack, it is crucial to remember the important role armed citizens play in keeping themselves and others safe. Perhaps no example illustrates this better than that of the Uber driver who pulled his handgun and stopped an attempted mass shooting in Chicago on April 17. The driver had a concealed carry permit, so he was carrying his gun legally. And the fact that he had the gun with him prevented injury to innocents at the very least, and perhaps saved numerous lives on top of that. Breitbart News reported that the driver was sitting in his car on Milwaukee Avenue, watching people ...

Gangsters With Badges

Heres a CNN news story about a Prince Georges County (MD) Hero who pointed a loaded gun, gangster-style, at the head of a man stopped over a traffic violation: The man was threatened with summary execution for the high crime of exiting his vehicle and what amounts to contempt of cop. The Hero initially lost his taxpayer-subsidized employment, but until the video got loose, was not charged criminally with anything. It is only because a third party managed to video the incident and because of subsequent embarrassment that the Hero ended up facing charges. Which is exactly why these incidents continue to occur. We that is, the non-badged are ...

Mark Vicars, with shot of his weapons (NCPD) A Long Island man who was allegedly posing as a federal air marshal was arrested after cops say they found a loaded pistol and assault rifle in his car, along with other weapons. Mark Vicars, 49, was pulled over while driving on Jericho Turnpike in Syosset around 7:40 a.m. Thursday.

Authorities found a .223 assault rifle, a loaded pistol, a knife, a tactical vest with three high-capacity magazines and body armor in the car. There ...
Think 'Gun Violence' Is On the Rise in the U.S.? Think Again
Post Date: 2015-12-06 21:07:33 by Justified
As President Obama prepares to lecture the American public about guns yet again, the statistics say that "gun violence" is on the decline and has been for some time -- even as private firearm ownership has soared: Premeditated mass shootings in public places are happening more often, some researchers say, plunging towns and cities into grief and riveting the attention of a horrified nation. In general, though, fewer Americans are dying as a result of gun violence a shift that began about two decades ago. In 1993, there were seven homicides by firearm for every 100,000 Americans, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of data from the Centers for Disease Control and ...

A Land Without Guns: How Japan Has Virtually Eliminated Shooting Deaths
Post Date: 2015-12-06 09:00:00 by Willie Green
In part by forbidding almost all forms of firearm ownership, the country has as few as two gun-related homicides a year. Ive heard it said that, if you take a walk around Waikiki, its only a matter of time until someone hands you a flyer of scantily clad women clutching handguns, overlaid with English and maybe Japanese text advertising one of the many local shooting ranges. The citys largest, the Royal Hawaiian Shooting Club, advertises instructors fluent in Japanese, which is also the default language of its website. For years, this peculiar Hawaiian industry has explicitly targeted Japanese tourists, drawing them away from beaches and resorts into shopping malls, to do ...

Is it Time to Retire the Defensive Shotgun?

Is it Time to Retire the Defensive Shotgun? By CTD Blogger published on November 24, 2015 in Firearms With the AR-15 crowned as the new reigning champ of semiautomatic rifles, theres no doubt that the 5.56×45 is here to stay. These guns have never been cheaper, more reliable, or easier to customize. And the surging popularity of the defensive carbine has largely displaced the 12-gauge shotgun as the long gun of choice to keep handy for defense of hearth and home. The pump-action shotgun was at one time considered the first and only tool to reach for when things went bump in the night, but it definitely doesnt have the monopoly on protective force anymore. So, is the ...

Do citizens (not police officers) with guns ever stop mass shootings?
Post Date: 2015-12-05 07:20:42 by buckeroo
Backers of laws that let pretty much all law-abiding people carry concealed guns in public places often argue that these laws will sometimes enable people to stop mass shootings. Opponents occasionally ask: If thats so, what examples can one give of civilians armed with guns stopping such shootings? Sometimes, I hear people asking if even one such example can be found, or saying that they havent heard of even one such example. A while back I posted about a few examples, but since then there have been some more, so I thought Id note them. Naturally, such examples will be rare. Even in states which allow concealed carry, there often arent people near a shooting who ...
End the Gun Epidemic in America

It is a moral outrage and national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency. -- By THE EDITORIAL BOARD, DEC. 4, 2015 All decent people feel sorrow and righteous fury about the latest slaughter of innocents, in California. Law enforcement and intelligence agencies are searching for motivations, including the vital question of how the murderers might have been connected to international terrorism. That is right and proper. But motives do not matter to the dead in California, nor did they in Colorado, Oregon, South Carolina, Virginia, Connecticut and far too many other places.

How I Evolved on Guns During the Boston Manhunt [Full Thread]

How I Evolved on Guns During the Boston Manhunt By Paula Bolyard April 22, 2013 In the wee hours of Friday morning, April 19th, I evolved on guns. First, a confession: Ive never owned a gun. I never wanted one in my home and, like a lot of moms, I wanted to raise non-violent children and thought keeping guns out of our home was one way to do that. When my kids were young, I didnt want them to play with toy guns in fact, I was rather insistent about it. Eventually, I realized that little boys will make guns out of just about anything bananas, sticks, the dogs paw, their fingers nothing is safe from their imaginative minds. So I compromised and ...

Post Date: 2015-12-04 12:05:18 by Willie Green
One of the victims in the San Bernardino massacre is a former New Jersey man who verbally sparred about Israel two weeks ago with a man whom police have identified as one of the shooters, a friend of the victim said Thursday in a telephone interview. Nicholas Thalasinos, 52, a health inspector who moved from Cape May County 13 years ago, enjoyed arguing about politics with his co-workers, the friend, Kuuleme Stephens, said.

Hey Obama, Guns Deter Terrorists Here in Israel
Post Date: 2015-12-04 09:09:19 by cranky
JERUSALEM Theres an entire country that would probably differ with the White Houses off-key assertion that gun control will help deter terrorists. The latest so-called wave of terror in Israel has been a case study in how guns actually stop jihadist attacks. So much so that the mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat, asked residents with gun licenses to carry their weapons at all times. If you check, youll see that in many cases, those who neutralized terrorists were citizens who arent necessarily police officers, like former soldiers, he said. Last month, Israel eased restrictions on firearms possession across the country. The entire city of Jerusalem and ...
San Bernardino suspects' huge cache of bullets and bombs enough for 'another attack,' officials say
Post Date: 2015-12-03 16:42:43 by Willie Green
Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik -- the heavily armed couple who authorities say unleashed volleys of gunfire on a holiday party in San Bernardino -- had amassed an armory of weapons and explosives in their Redlands home, including a dozen pipe bombs and thousands of rounds of ammunition, officials said Thursday.The arsenal suggested a level of planning that added to investigators concern that Wednesday's shootings, which left 14 dead and 21 injured, were far more than a spontaneous response to a workplace dispute. Certainly they were equipped and they could have continued to do another attack
