  • Anti-Gun Media: We Never Said We Wanted To Repeal The Second Amendment...Uh, Yes You Did

    Did we take the red pill or the blue pill? Did we fall down the rabbit hole or not? What does a scanner see? The liberal news media has convinced themselves and their allies that no one is advocating the repeal of the Second Amendment; they just wrote several op-eds about it. This is all part of fever dream conservatives are suffering in the wake of the tragic Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February; the Left has made this diagnosis through their computer screens. No one wants to strip gun rights. It’s all a dream—sleep. Sleep. Sleep. Fortunately, the...

    The liberal mainstream media widely publicized the protests as being student organized. But, of course, this was complete rubbish. The well-planned events against the Second Amendment were organized and funded by outside groups – including the Democrat Party.

    Former President Barack Obama tweeted his support for students marching across the US to demand gun control, telling them they're leading the charge. "Michelle and I are so inspired by all the young people who made today's marches happen," the tweet said. "Keep at it. You're leading us forward. Nothing can stand in the way of millions of voices calling for change."

    Hundreds of thousands of protesters, outraged by a recent massacre at a South Florida school and energized by the students who survived, thronged in streets across the globe in protests on Saturday, demanding action against gun violence in their most ambitious show of strength yet. In New York, marchers bundled in bright orange — the official color of a gun control advocacy group — charged toward Central Park. In Washington, protesters held signs with the messages “Arms Are for Hugging” and “Never Again.” And in Parkland, Fla., less than a mile from where the shooting took place, one protester’s eyes...

    The high-school-student-organized March for Our Lives this weekend has put politicians in an unusual spot: the back seat. Although students are the driving force behind the D.C. march and sister marches around the country, elected officials and candidates from the District, Maryland and Virginia are finding ways to participate — chartering bus loads of constituents, speaking at pre-march rallies and simply planing to be in the crowd. D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) is leading a contingent of D.C. students, joined by most members of the D.C. Council and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D). They will meet at Folger Park...

    The so-called fact checkers at the far-left Washington Post are liars. Straight-up liars. Because here is what Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama actually said in favor of gun confiscation: Barack Obama, June 2014: Couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting, similar to Columbine or Newtown. And Australia just said, well, that’s it, we’re not doing, we’re not seeing that again, and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws, and they haven’t had a mass shooting since. Our levels of gun violence are off the charts. There’s no advanced, developed country that would put up with this. Barack Obama,...

    STOCKTON, Calif. (KCRA) — At least five students were arrested Friday as hundreds of others from several Stockton high schools walked out of classes in protest of gun violence after last week's deadly shooting at a Florida high school. Students at Stagg, Edison, Chavez, Lincoln and Village Oak high schools were walking along streets, creating traffic problems in the area as streets were blocked off. Stockton police said some students threw rocks and damaged both police and citizen vehicles. Five arrests were made, including charges of battery on an officer, resisting arrest, taking an officer's baton and vandalizing vehicles, including...

    Gun Owners of America ^ | 25 January 2017 | Tim Macy
    In one of the first pro-gun actions of his administration, President Donald Trump is expected to shortly move to revoke Barack Obamas illegal actions to effectively outlaw gun collecting. Obama’s anti-gun “executive action” was announced on January 6, 2016 – in the wake of Obama’s unsuccessful attempt to scapegoat law-abiding gun owners for the actions of a Muslim terrorist in San Bernardino. Obama’s action was implemented as a “clarification” because he knew that his lawless moves could never pass muster under the rule-making procedures of the Administrative Procedures Act.

    Last Year, Clinton Lambasted The Supreme Court’s Decision In District Of Columbia V. Heller, Which Found D.C.’s Ban On Handguns Unconstitutional. “While Clinton has previously supported an assault weapons ban, this is the first time since launching her campaign that she indicated that she would take on the Supreme Court over gun issues. Although Clinton did not identify which Supreme Court case she disagreed with, she appeared to be criticizing the landmark 2008 ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller, which found the handgun ban in Washington, D.C., unconstitutional… ‘We’ve got to go after this,’ Clinton continued. ‘And here again,...

    “Pray for Orlando" we read on Facebook and Twitter. Prayer is vitally important, but is there more we can do? As United Methodist Christians, we mourn with the victims and families of those wounded and killed in the shootings on June 12, 2016 in Orlando, Florida. We may even pray and wonder if anything could have been done to avert this heinous act. But should we do more? Is there anything that can be done to keep something similar from happening in the future? While we may not agree on a solution, many of us agree there is a problem....
  • Toomey ads push expanded background checks on gun sales

    Republican U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey is returning to Pennsylvania's airwaves for the first time since last summer, advancing a pro-law enforcement and pro-gun control message as Democrats step up attacks on him. The ads, starting Tuesday, tout Toomey's support for undoing Obama administration restrictions on police access to U.S. military gear and Toomey's push to expand background checks on firearms purchases. Toomey's re-election bid is expected to be expensive and hotly contested, and the seat in closely divided Pennsylvania is viewed as crucial to control of the Senate.

On Feb. 27, Ted Cruz said Rubio voted to “ban guns from city parks” while a commissioner in West Miami City.

    It's been less than 24 hours since multiple gunmen slaughtered 14 innocent people in San Bernardino, Calif., yet the major media have already compiled a lengthy list of embarrassing missteps. From rank speculation to premature politicization, the frequent departure from simply reporting factual information isn't going well. Here are ten of the worst moments thus far: Senator Tim Kaine saying the atrocity proves America is addicted to guns. Former FBI assistant director, Tom Fuentes – later joined by CNN's Harry Houck – speculating an anti-government "right-wing group" is behind the attack.MSNBC reporting (almost as soon as the shooting began) that...

    From: info@terrymcauliffe.com After my family experienced an act of horrific violence, I quickly learned that the personal is political and that the political matters. When my daughter Alison was brutally struck down by a deranged gunman on live television, I made it my life’s work to implement effective and reasonable safeguards to prevent this from happening again. Gun violence is far too common, and I plan to do whatever it takes to stop more tragedies like this from occurring. I know that in order to actually make a difference and get commonsense gun control legislation passed, we need to get...

    Second Amendment groups are accusing the gun control lobby of putting law-abiding owners of firearms in danger by urging people to call the police on anyone carrying a gun in public. As more states relax rules about open-carrying of guns, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has taken to social media to urge the public to assume gun-toters are trouble, and to call the cops on anyone they feel may be a threat.

    Liam Neeson is in talks to star as U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur in South Korean war pic Operation Chromite from Taewon Entertainment. A Taewon rep confirmed the news Wednesday to Deadline. John H. Lee is on-board to direct the project, which looks at the Battle of Incheon, a major turning point in 1950 in the Korean War in which United Nations forces launched a surprise attack against communist North Korean forces. Operation Chromite was the codename for the operation. The Korean War was fought between 1950-1953 and ended in a stalemate that exists today, with simmering hostilities between the...

    ARKANSAS (KFSM) – Following the shooting death of four Marines in Chattanooga, Gov. Asa Hutchinson has authorized Arkansas National Guard Adjutant General Mark Berry to arm full-time military personnel. The governor also ordered the Arkansas flag to be flown at half-staff on Monday (July 20), according to a news release. “Our hearts break at the news of another senseless act of violence and terror, this time out of Chattanooga,” Governor Hutchinson said. “Our prayers go out to all the families of the victims, especially the family of Staff Sgt. David Wyatt of Russellville, one of Arkansas’s own.” He continued, “I...

    Anti-capitalism, pro-AGW, and anti-gun By now, you’ve probably seen the Tweets, read the quotes, or listened to the proclamations coming from the Vatican. The Pope has decided to embrace the global warming faith, attack capitalism, decry the successes of western nations, and rail against guns, gun manufacturers, and those who support the industry. In short (abortion and gay marriage aside) he’s taken a turn to the hard-left. In the span of a decade, we’ve gone from a Pope teaming with Reagan to defeat the Soviet Union to a Pope who embraces the classist financial rhetoric of our old enemies. That’s...
