  • Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz threaten hold on gun restrictions

    The Washington Times ^ | 26 March 2013 | David Sherfinski and Seth McLaughlin
    Pushing back against the Obama administration’s call for stricter gun control laws, Republican Sens. Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz are threatening to block any legislation they think tramples on the Second Amendment - marking the latest salvo from a trio of lawmakers who have been busy banding together to assert their vision on the direction of their party. The tea party favorites warned Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that they will hold up any bill that serves “as a vehicle for any additional gun restrictions” when the body returns from its two-week spring break. “The Second Amendment to...

    February 11, 2013 And Your Little Dog, Too By Deroy Murdock As Washington politicians aim to restrict the Second Amendment, they should look in the mirror. The time to control government’s guns is now. Overarmed federal officials increasingly employ military tactics as a first resort in routine law enforcement. From food-safety cases to mundane financial matters, battle-ready public employees are turning America into the United States of SWAT.FBI agents and U.S. marshals understandably are well fortified, given their frequent run-ins with ruthless bad guys. However — as my old friend and fellow columnist Quin Hillyer notes — armed officers, if...

    Scandal: A Univision special documents how weapons provided by the administration to Mexican drug cartels repeatedly have taken a deadly toll as families on both sides of the border wait for true answers and accountability. We may never know how many deaths, kidnappings and other criminal activities were facilitated by more than 2,000 weapons that were allowed to "walk" into Mexico under the Obama administration's Fast and Furious program, but a Univision special aired Sunday exposes more of the carnage. The special, put together by Univision's investigative unit and aired as a special edition of Univision's "Aqui y Ahora" ("Here...

    American Thinker ^ | July 8, 2012 | Jeff Lipkes
    Early in the morning on June 27, Fortune Magazine published online a lengthy article called "The Truth about the Fast and Furious Scandal." Fortune's timing was not fortuitous. That evening, the House voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for failing to produce documents requested by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. About a hundred Democrats walked out before the vote, and the talking points at their press conference came from the article. Leftist websites jumped on the story. It rapidly became the new liberal narrative on the scandal. Some moderate Republicans have been impressed....

    IBD Editorials ^ | June 26, 2012
    Scandal: The head of the House oversight panel suggests the real reason for the administration's invoking executive privilege in the Fast and Furious case is to hide proof that the operation was part of a push for gun control. Defenders of President Obama's use of executive privilege to provide cover for Attorney General Eric Holder in the gun-running fiasco that resulted in the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jaime Zapata may dismiss it as just another conspiracy theory. But the suggestion by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., that the deadly operation was conceived to advance the...

    Waterbury American-Republican ^ | March 18, 2011 | Editorial
    President Obama recently penned an op-ed on gun-control for The Arizona Daily Star. The piece was interesting for its sensible content, but also was another example of Mr. Obama advertising his centrist credentials for 2012. The president took pains to make sure his readers were aware of his belief "that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms." To this end, he pointed out that in May 2009, he signed legislation making it legal for licensed gun owners to carry firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges. Mr. Obama described most gun owners as "highly responsible." The president...

    Over the past few years the National Rifle Association has made some highly questionable decisions regarding legislation in Washington and the politicians with whom it associates itself. One of the most glaring of those questionable decisions leads to this crucial question--why does the NRA support Harry Reid? (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak). Birds of a feather--Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Harry Reid, of course, is the U.S. Senator from Nevada who serves as Senate Majority Leader for the Democrat-controlled Congress. Reid is also the one who stated that the income tax is 'voluntary,' that extremist Leftist Elena Kagan is a good choice...

    Police want to get tougher with handling of non-fatal shootings In an effort to reduce overall gun violence and homicides, the Milwaukee Police Department is looking for ways to beef up its investigations of non-fatal shootings, a commander said Wednesday. Milwaukee Police Officer Cory Washington and Milwaukee Fire Department paramedic Capt. Brian Reynolds assist a gunshot victim on N. Holton St. in October 2006. By treating non-fatal shootings more like homicides, police hope to prevent killings and send a message to the community that any gun violence will be treated very seriously by the department, said Capt. David Zibolski, head...

    ALBANY, NY -- (06/13/2005; 1400)(EIS) -- Recently released FBI crime data validates statements by gun ownership advocates that last year's expiration of the so-called "assault weapons ban" would not impact crime and may, in fact, help improve community safety. According to an FBI report, the national homicide rate has declined for the first time since 1999. The report shows that homicides declined 5.4 percent in cities with more than 1 million people and overall murder rates dropped 3.6 percent. "I think this justifies our statements that the expiration of the ban would not have a negative impact on crime in...
