  • Democrats Immediately Call For Gun Control After Las Vegas Shooting

    Daily Caller ^ | 10/02/2017 | Peter Hasson
    Congressional Democrats chose not to wait for all the facts to come in before immediately pushing for increased gun control measures following the Las Vegas shooting Sunday night that left 50 people dead and more than 400 injured. It’s not yet clear how the shooter, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, acquired his guns or if gun control measures could have prevented him from obtaining them, but leading Democrats are already demanding stricter gun control legislation. Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy issued a statement Monday morning claiming that “the thoughts and prayers of politicians are cruelly hollow if they are paired with continued legislative...

  • The 4th Circuit rules that Militias cannot use Military appearing weapons.

    03/05/2017 5:56:47 PM PST · by vannrox · 59 replies
    In case you were not aware of it, the 4th circuit court ruled that the 2nd amendment does not apply to military appearing weapons. Now, this is a curious ruling in that [1] it applies constitutional standards that are not present (the appearance of a firearm), [2] a ruling of 10-4 in favor of this (heavily stacked by liberal progressive -socialists), [3] affects the 2nd amendment, [4] which the liberals say does not apply to individuals but to militias. What is not reported in the media (aside from just about everything regarding this) is that the 2nd amendment applies to...
  • More Carry Permits Issued In 2016 Than Any Year Before (MN)

    A record number of people are legally carrying handguns in Minnesota. The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says sheriffs issued more than 71,000 permits to carry last year.  That’s a dramatic spike since the year before, when about 45,000 people received the permit. Shooting off a lunchtime round at Bill’s Gun Shop and Range in Robbinsdale, we found Heather Evans. She has been carrying for five years. “For me I do a lot of solo backpacking so I carry with me for safety purposes, not only from people but from animals,” Evans said. She’s teaching her friend Stella, who is considering getting...

    PITTSBURGH - An armed man who was attempting to rob a business Friday morning on Pittsburgh’s South Side was shot by an employee, authorities told Channel 11 News. The incident was reported just before 8 a.m. at the Subway restaurant in the 2700 block of East Carson Street. Authorities said the armed man entered the Subway and demanded money. One of two Subway employees told officers that he felt threatened and shot the man in the chest. "One of the employees who has a concealed carry permit and has a firearm apparently felt threatened for him and the other employees...

    You see a Govt car driver acting out on the freeway. There's no agency sticker. Where are our 5th Amendment Guardians of Free Speech with an online searchable database so you can report this misbehavior to the only authority un-firable Govt. workers are scared of -- their Risk Management Dept, a combination of lawyers and insurance?Of course, progressives and their news media brainwashers don't care about this, they WANT the Govt. to run everything.(My solution: Hack the news media, publish THEIR home addresses.)

    Washington Times ^ | 8/3/16 | Ben Wolfgang
    Hillary Clinton on Wednesday tried to reassure skeptical gun owners that she’s not interested in rolling back Second Amendment rights or hatching a scheme to take Americans’ firearms. Speaking just outside Denver, Colorado, Mrs. Clinton again said she’ll make gun control legislation a top priority of her administration, vowing to fight the “gun lobby” and enact stricter rules, such as expanded background checks. But in fighting for votes across rural America, where gun rights remain a key issue, the former first lady also must tread carefully. The National Rifle Association already has endorsed her opponent, Republican Donald Trump, and many...

    WeatherProof Roofing in Colorado will offer clients that purchase a new roof before Oct 1 a certificate redeemable for a gun. The new "Get a Roof, Get a Gun!" promotion is the only offer of its kind, owner James Webb told Denver's Fox31 news: “We are the only roofing company in the country that is offering this. We figured we take a stand on what we believe,” Webb said. “We help protect the outside now we empower people to protect the inside." The promotion runs until Oct. 1. Webb is partnering with a local gun club to run the appropriate...

    Accidentally, of course. A "glitch", if you will. When discussing any issue for which Barack Obama is proposing action there is an axiom which has to be remembered- Obama lies about everything- the Iran deal, Fast and Furious, health care, rewriting history, Libya, you name it. Gun control is no different. What he wants, accompanied by our resident idiot Senators Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal, is nothing less than the ability to suspend your Constitutional rights. Here he is in a town hall whining about his inability to stop those on a no-fly list from purchasing guns: he's really...

    Friends, while I'm not going to discuss the particulars of my sister's divorce or what I was told about how she was cheated on, battered, and abused during her marriage. My concern is for her safety these days. This is because her soon-to-be-former-husband has made a number of threats against her life. And friends, these are not "alleged" threats simply because I've seen them and verified them to be real.  Fearing for her safety and security even more so in recent months, my sister has gone to the El Dorado County Court to request and obtain a Restraining Order...

    You know what's dangerous about a minor-league baseball team marketing person watching a Miss Universe Pageant gone terribly wrong? Ideas start happening. That was the case for Nathan Barnett, who works in the front office of the Frisco RoughRiders, the Texas Rangers' Double-A affiliate. On Sunday, Barnett saw pageant host Steve Harvey announce the wrong winner. As anyone with marketing in his blood will do, Barnett immediately reached for his cellphone. "It was not one person's idea, really, but I saw the gaffe happen live and texted [Roughriders director of marketing and promotions] Matt Ratliff that we had to invite...

    Germans, facing an influx of more than one million asylum seekers from Africa, Asia and the Middle East, are rushing to arm themselves. All across Germany, a country with some of the most stringent gun-control laws in Europe, demand is skyrocketing for non-lethal self-defense weapons, including pepper sprays, gas pistols, flare guns, electroshock weapons and animal repellants. Germans are also applying for weapons permits in record numbers. The scramble to acquire weapons comes amid a migrant-driven surge in violent crimes — including rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults — in cities and towns throughout the country. German authorities, however, are going...

    Democrats ramped up their push Thursday for more firearms restrictions even as alarm over recent mass shootings, including one linked to Islamic terrorism, fueled calls for citizens to play a greater role in their own protection. The Senate defeated two gun control amendments, one that would have expanded background checks for guns purchased online and at gun shows, and another that would have prohibited suspected terrorists from buying firearms.

    Senate Democrats will offer a pair of gun-related amendments to a budget bill on Thursday, seeking to put Republicans on record on the charged issue in the aftermath of Wednesday's mass shooting in California. At a special caucus meeting on Thursday morning, Democratic senators agreed to offer Legislation that would make it harder for people on the terrorism watch list to buy guns, and a re-vote on universal background checks that failed in 2013, senators and aides said. The votes could become major campaign fodder in next year's Senate races. A third amendment proposed by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid...

On top of this they want to double down on this with more of the same.
