  • CNN Hides Anti-Gun Brady Campaign Affiliation of Doctor Trashing NRA(DOH!)

    On Saturday afternoon, CNN Newsroom gave attention to a Johns Hopkins Hospital trauma surgeon who has been criticizing the NRA, but the liberal news network, even while interviewing him, did not divulge that he is a board member of the anti-gun Brady Campaign. Dr. Joseph Sakran was first brought up on CNN early Friday evening during The Situation Room in a report by correspondent Brian Todd which recounted the NRA reacting on Twitter to a group of doctors who recently called for more gun control. Picking up on a tweet by Dr. Sakran, the report cited his views for much...
  • After CA's Gun Laws Fail, Dems Say They'll Push for the Same Ones Nationwide

    As Democrats are set to control the House of Representatives next year, they say one of their first agendas will be to introduce a new set of gun control bills, especially in wake of the Thousand Oaks, California mass shooting that killed twelve people. Current House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told CNN she plans on introducing "bipartisan legislation to have common sense background checks.” “It doesn’t cover everything,” Pelosi admitted. “But it will save many lives.” She added that current Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) did not bring the bill to the floor because he knew it...

    BBC News ^ | 11/12/2018
    When America's powerful pro-gun group told doctors to mind their own business, the response was swift, furious and viral. "Unless you've had someone's heart stop beating in your hands, you don't get to tell those of us who have what is and is not our 'lane'," trauma surgeon David Morris, 42, told the BBC. The National Rifle Association's tweet on Wednesday sparked anger. It came just hours before a gunman killed 12 people in a California bar. "Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane," the NRA tweeted.

    Perhaps annoyed that “jingoistic” country music is not yet as infested with left-wing promotional politics as other musical and entertainment fields, a major newspaper again used the annual Country Music Association Awards to push gun-control politics onto the industry, Reporter Elizabeth Harris garnered the front page of the New York Times Arts section for her Saturday piece “Singing About Pain, But Not Its Source -- A country awards show may discuss its slain fans, but guns and politics are unlikely topics”: The Country Music Association Awards are supposed to be a celebration of one of America’s enduring art forms, a...
  • NBC Uses Doctor’s Group, Grieving Mother to Tout ‘Thundering Call to Action’ for Gun Bans

    While ABC’s World News Tonight and the CBS Evening News largely stuck Friday to the investigation into the Thousand Oaks, California bar shooting and the grieving families, NBC Nightly News went political. Their strategy? Well, NBC took it upon itself to push gun bans and gun control with support from both a doctor’s group that the National Rifle Association (NRA) had tweeted about (before the shooting) and comments from a grieving mother calling for “no more guns.” “Also, a war of words erupts, the NRA versus doctors fed up and speaking up after the latest mass shooting in America. And...

    Actor Ashton Kutcher responded to Wednesday’s shooting in Borderline Bar & Grill by begging Ivanka Trump to convince her father to push “gun control now.” Kutcher used Twitter to explain that he celebrated his most recent birthday party at Borderline, tweeting, “My wife threw me a birthday party this year at the Borderline. Only reason we are alive is the shooter chose a different night. My heart goes out to the victims. I’ll say it again… Gun Reform Now! Politicians need to stop standing behind the dollar & Protect the people!”
  • Democrats Plan to Pursue Most Aggressive Gun-Control Legislation in Decades

    Focus spurred by an incoming class of lawmakers with ‘F’ NRA ratings who campaigned on the issue ______________________________________________________________________ WASHINGTON—Democrats say they will pass the most aggressive gun-control legislation in decades when they become the House majority in January, plans they renewed this week in the aftermath of a mass killing in a California bar. Their efforts will be spurred by an incoming class of pro-gun-control lawmakers who scored big in Tuesday’s midterm elections, although any measure would likely meet stiff resistance in the GOP-controlled Senate. Democrats ousted at least 15 House Republicans with “A” National Rifle Association ratings, while the...
  • Here We Go Again: CBS, NBC Push Another Bogus Mass Shooting Statistic

    So, just like macabre clockwork. With Thursday’s mass shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, there were routine calls for more gun control from the liberal media machine. During their evening broadcasts, CBS and NBC tried to scare the wits out of their viewers by dubiously claiming that there had been 307 mass shooting this year alone, or almost one a day. But that was a lie. In a deeply condescending report to end the CBS Evening News, national correspondent Jim Axelrod suggested this latest shooting “reminds us the range of ‘I can't believe it happened...
  • ‘What About Guns Right Now?’ CNN's Blitzer Pushes Gun Control After CA Bar Shooting

    Showing that he’s anything but a fair news anchor, CNN’s The Situation Room host Wolf Blitzer was yet another journalist who tried to make the Thousand Oaks, California bar shooting about gun control despite the state having perhaps the country’s strictest gun laws and state mental health experts had cleared the disturbed individual (thus still allowing him to purchase firearms). Blitzer led into gun control by asking Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier (CA) about “what else could police” have done if they had visited him previously and “they had some professionals check him out and they concluded he was no threat...
  • What Truly Caused the Pogrom of 1938

    American Thinker ^ | November 9, 2018 | Gary Gindler
    Due to the combined application of the laws of the Third Reich of 1935 and 1938, the confiscation of all firearms from German Jews was categorically legalized. As a result, a massive (and effective) campaign for the confiscation of weapons had begun, and in many regions of Germany, the Jews were wholly disarmed in just six months – by November 1938. For example, the day before the pogrom, on November 8, 1938, the New York Times published an article reported that the head of the Berlin police noted with satisfaction that practically all firearms from Berlin Jews had already been...

    Police in the Democrat haven of Maryland shot and killed a man in his home on Monday while serving a “protective order” under a new law which allows them to seize people’s guns without due process. Since the new gun confiscation law went into effect on October 1st, police have carried out 114 such confiscation orders, which comes out to over 3 such seizures every day.

    For months, gun control advocates in Washington State have peddled initiative 1639, which moves to create stricter firearms laws. On Tuesday, 60 percent of Washingtonians voted in favor of ballot measure, the Seattle Times reported. Specifically, i-1639 will: • Raise the age someone can purchase a rifle to 21. • Create an "enhanced background check system similar to what is used for handguns." • Require a person to complete a firearms safety training course. • Create a common stand for secure gun storage. Those in favor of the measure believe that even further gun laws will prevent mass shootings. “My...
  • Survey: Majority of Americans Oppose Ban on 'Assault Rifles'(THE Weapon!)

    11/06/2018 1:18:36 PM PST · by rktman · 16 replies ^ | 11/6/2018 | Michael W. Chapman
    A recent survey shows that a strong majority of Americans, 57%, oppose banning semi-automatic guns, specifically semi-automatic rifles that the media often label "assault rifles." A semi-automatic rifle (or pistol) is a gun that fires one bullet each time the trigger is pulled. In the poll, Gallup asked, "Are you for or against a law which would make it illegal to manufacture, sell or possess semi-automatic guns, known as assault rifles?" Forty percent said they were "for" a ban and 57% said they were "against" a ban.
  • CBS News Inaccurately Names AR-15 as Mass Shooters’ ‘Weapon of Choice’

    During the November 4 airing of CBS News’s 60 Minutes, they inaccurately described the AR-15 as mass shooters’ “weapon of choice.” The claim that the AR-15 is the “weapon of choice” is widely reported and it is Fake New 101. In fact, to make the claim even nominally palatable, 60 Minutes host Scott Pelley only referenced five mass shooting events, all of which happened in the last six years and all which involved an AR-15 or an AR-15 and various handguns. Those five shootings were the Tree of Life Synagogue (October 27, 2018), the church in Sutherland Springs, Texas (November...
  • Tapper Presses Georgia's Abrams on Gun-Control Legislation, She Claims 'Conversation'

    Kudos to Jake Tapper. On his State of the Union CNN show this morning, not only did Tapper raise with Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams the legislation she introduced as a member of the Georgia legislature that would have forced Georgians to surrender their "assault weapons." Tapper then twice pressed Abrams on it as she tried to dance away. Abrams's weasel word of the day: "conversation." No fewer than five times Abrams claimed she was merely trying to start a "conversation" on the subject. Sorry, Ms. Abrams: when you introduce legislation, you're not merely starting a conversation. You're expressing...
  • Democrat Stacey Abrams Admits She May Require Georgians to ‘Turn Their Guns In’

    During a November 4 appearance on CNN’s State of the Union Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) admitted that a possible outcome of her gun control plans could be that “people would turn their guns in.” Tapper reminded the viewing audience that Abrams co-sponsored Georgia HB 731 on January 2016. He pointed out that Abrams’ co-sponsors admitted the bill would “require gun owners of these particular models to turn their guns in.” Abrams did not try to hide her support for HB 731, rather, she said that was simply the beginning of “a conversation.” She then made clear that as...

In a video posted on the group’s Facebook page on Saturday, members of the Black Panther Party are seen marching through the West End neighborhood of Atlanta in support of Stacey Abrams gubernatorial campaign. As they marched, the Black Panthers carried assault rifles and continually shouted slogans such as “black power” and “power to the people.”
  • GA GOV: Democrat On Support For Gun Confiscation: It Was Just A Way To Start A Conversation

    11/04/2018 9:15:55 AM PST · by rktman · 35 replies ^ | 11/4/2018 | Matt Vespa
    In Georgia, a red and pro-gun rights state, Abrams’ past anti-gun history should energize Republican voters, especially gun rights voters, since she has supported AR-15 bans and gun confiscation in the past. This election will be a test to see if the Atlanta region is what’s going to carry the state, and if its Democratic power base is enough to overwhelm the deep red rural counties around it. What’s even more disconcerting is Abrams saying that support for these unconstitutional policies were just a way to start a conversation. She said this to CNN’s Jake Tapper this morning. Earlier this...
