According to Wikipedia: Gun control, or firearms regulation, is the set of laws or policies that regulate the manufacture, sale, transfer, possession, modification, or use of firearms by civilians. Most countries have a restrictive firearm guiding policy, with only a few being categorized as permissive. Jurisdictions that regulate access to firearms typically restrict access to only certain categories of firearms and then to restrict the categories of persons who will be granted a license to have access to a firearm. In some countries, such as the United States, gun control may be legislated at either a federal level or a local state level. Click for Full Text!

Post Date: 2023-04-27 00:22:39 by Charles_Byrd
"Stand your ground" self-defense laws have been back in the news recently, although it is not clear why. That mystery highlights longstanding journalistic confusion on this subject, which misrepresents such laws as a license to kill anyone who looks at you cross-eyed. "A string of recent shootings have put renewed attention on the self- defense laws often known as 'stand your ground' laws," NPR's Adrian Florido reports. "In the span of a week, 16-year-old Ralph Yarl was shot twice after ringing the doorbell of the wrong house in the state of Missouri as he was trying to pick up his siblings. In upstate New York, Kaylin Gillis was shot and killed after ...

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Director Steve Dettelbach avoided confirming Wednesday whether the agency would pursue prosecution against people who violated its new pistol brace rule accidentally. The rule requires owners to register pistols with braces as short barrel rifles by redefining a weapon designed or redesigned, made or remade, and intended to be fired from the shoulder as a rifle, with a May 31 deadline. Republican Texas Rep. Troy Nehls said he viewed the rule as a direct assault on law-abiding Americans Second Amendment rights, asking Dettelbach what enforcement mechanism the ATF would use to fine or possibly ...
President Biden Goes All Out (Falsely) on Gun Control Again
Post Date: 2023-04-23 01:47:25 by Charles_Byrd
President Joe Biden wasted little time calling for gun control following the tragic murders of six innocent Americans by a mentally unstable person who was known to be a threat. Similarly, White House Spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre demanded a litany of gun control in a press briefing following the tragedy in Louisville, Ky., before the basic facts of the incident were known. Less than two weeks after a transgender student shot her way into The Covenant School in Nashville, Tenn., the president tweeted his gun control call. Click for Full Text!
Death Threats = First Gun Purchase
Post Date: 2023-04-15 01:43:36 by Charles_Byrd
It requires little elaboration to understand why receiving death threats might sharpen ones opinions on the merits of gun ownership. I would guess that somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 percent of my readers are familiar with JP Sears. He had a way of hilariously skewering crazy social trends without being overtly ideological. We werent even completely sure where he stood, but we knew he had to be at least in part on the side of sanity. Click for Full Text!
Banks, Credit Cards Set to Report Gun Purchases as “Suspicious Activity”
Post Date: 2023-04-12 21:20:10 by Charles_Byrd
Its been 10 years since the IRS was caught targeting conservatives for audits, but the government is showing no signs of changing its habits. Bureaucrats and agents of civilian disarmament are manipulating the Merchant Category Code (MCC) a classification it has used for years to identify businesses selling firearms. The use of a unique code assigned to gun vendors is nothing more nor less than a backdoor federal gun registry. Click for Full Text!

Democrats Can't Even Define What They Want to Ban

When President Joe Biden called for another federal ban on so-called "assault weapons" following last week's shooting at a Nashville, Tennessee, Christian elementary school, not only would it do nothing to curb gun violence, but he can't even define what he wants to ban. Transgender Audrey Hale, 28, who identifies as a male, shot and killed three nine-year-old students and three staff members, each in their '60s, at The Covenant School in what police called a "targeted attack."

Washington Post: AR-15 Is “Instrument of Domestic Terror” and Symbol of “Extremists”
Post Date: 2023-03-29 21:57:33 by Charles_Byrd
Describing how Americans on the left end of the political spectrum and the right end of that spectrum are arming themselves in anticipation of civil unrest in this country, an article printed in The Washington Post makes the following statement: Such scenes look ominous to extremism analysts who warn of an elevated risk of political violence from vigilantes who wield the AR-15 as both tool and symbol. Militants say they favor the AR-15 for all the same reasons mainstream enthusiasts do its easy to handle, affordable and customizable but they also exploit the fear surrounding the weapon. Its just a tool, an inanimate object, but it is polarizing, and ...

State Attorneys General to Biden on “Assault Weapon” Ban: Nope, Nada, Not Having It

Following his State of the Union (SOTU) speech earlier this month, in which President Joe Biden yelled, Band [sic] assault weapons now!, the president predictably included the same demand last week in remarks at the National Association of Counties legislative conference.

Gun Control Laws Backfiring in California
Post Date: 2023-02-13 16:12:24 by Charles_Byrd
After the three public shootings over the last two weekends in California, Democrats are again clamoring for even more gun control laws. To California Gov. Gavin Newsom, the solution is to ban more places where people can carry permitted concealed handguns. Unfortunately, the proposal has nothing to do with stopping these attacks, and more gun-free zones only encourage these attacks. Other heavily Democratic states such as New York, New Jersey, and Maryland are making similar pushes. Concealed handgun permit holders didnt commit those or other mass public shootings. Permit holders are also extremely law-abiding, being convicted of firearms-related violations at 1/12th the rate of ...
