  • The true secret of the NRA’s success

    An old rule of thumb holds that when someone says it’s not about the money, it’s really about the money. But there are exceptions to almost every rule. The National Rifle Association is a case in point. In the wake of the horror in Las Vegas this week, countless politicians, journalists and commentators are insisting that the National Rifle Association has a “stranglehold” on the Republican Party. Hillary Clinton claimed that the GOP-controlled Congress simply does “whatever they are told to do” by the NRA and the gun lobby. The Washington Post and New York Times laid out splashy reports...
  • As Expected, Michael Moore Has Another Dumb Revision To The Second Amendment

    Well, if there’s one person who can totally torpedo any meaningful discussion about gun policy, it’s left wing activist Michael Moore, who took to Facebook to outline his changes to the Second Amendment. It would essentially call for a gun ban. It outlaws automatic and semi-automatic firearms, band magazines that hold over six rounds, a man must get written permission from his wife and his “most recent ex-wife” (if he has one) to own a firearm, among other things. Here’s his proposal [emphasis mine]: See twitter at link My Proposal to Repeal the Second Amendment and Replace It With This:...

    (1) Everything Kills -- “Guns are uniquely lethal.”Last year, a Muslim terrorist with a truck killed 86 people and wounded another 458. Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, the Tunisian Muslim killer, had brought along a gun, but it proved largely ineffective. The deadliest weapon of the delivery driver was a truck. Mohammed, who was no genius, used it to kill more people than Stephen Paddock would with all his meticulous planning in Vegas. Do we need truck control? Deadlier than the truck is the jet plane. Nearly 3,000 people were killed on September 11 by terrorists with a plan and some box cutters....

    When House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) was asked on Tuesday about the status of the “suppressor” legislation (Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act), which had passed a House committee last month and was headed for a vote on the floor, Ryan was disingenuous: “That bill is not scheduled now. I don’t know when it’s going to be scheduled.” Ryan's response was disingenuous because, as speaker of the house, he is the one responsible for scheduling such votes. RINO Representative Chris Collins (a Republican from New York with a Freedom Index rating of just 53 out of 100), agreed: “I think...

    The National Rifle Association said Thursday that "bump stock" devices used to fully automate rifles "should be subject to additional regulation" in light of the Las Vegas massacre that killed 58 people and injured 489 others. "In the aftermath of the evil and senseless attack in Las Vegas, the American people are looking for answers as to how future tragedies can be prevented," the NRA said in statement.

    Fox News ^ | October 5, 2017
    District of Columbia officials announced Thursday they will not appeal a federal court ruling that struck down parts of the city’s restrictive gun laws, a move that paves the way for more gun owners to obtain concealed carry permits. In June, a federal appeals court ruled against a D.C. law that requires people to have a “good reason to fear injury” in order to carry a handgun, saying it infringes on residents' Second Amendment rights. Because of the stringent requirement, only about 120 people currently have a permit to carry a concealed handgun in the city.

Sinatra—the daughter of legendary crooner Frank Sinatra—shared the sentiment on Twitter following the murder of 59 people in Las Vegas by a mass shooter over the weekend. The murderous members of the NRA should face a firing squad. https://t.co/5ceuMvk5Tl — Nancy Sinatra (@NancySinatra) October 3, 2017 In response to criticism, Sinatra clarified that she did not mean all gun owners, just NRA members.

    from the facebook page of Lloyd Acree.......Take it from 8 years' professional Marine Corps machine gunnery and marksmanship expertise: Having trained to pro military "expert"-grade skill sets on rifle marksmanship and multiple machine guns in the Marine Corps infantry, I quickly started noticing a fowl odor in the news narrative on this Vegas massacre. The following are the weapons I am tired of shooting copious rounds through on both known and unknown distance ranges, running, hiking and training with, disassembling and reassembling, etc. Notice they all shoot automatic or can if switched over. - M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (full automatic)...

    CNBC ^ | 05 OCT 17 | CNBC Staff
    The powerful National Rifle Association on Thursday backed "additional regulations" on devices that boost semi-automatic weapons' firing rates, like the tools used by the shooter in the Las Vegas massacre. In a statement, the influential gun rights group's Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox urged the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to review the legality of so-called bump stocks. They stopped short of pushing Congress to pass a bill banning or regulating the devices. Still, the NRA's support for more regulation of bump stocks could give Republican lawmakers more breathing room to pass a bill regulating them. The statement...

    One of the puzzles about the mass murderer in Las Vegas is the source of his money. His brother characterizes him as "very wealthy" and that "$100,000 is no big deal". His real estate holdings holdings have been estimated as worth several millions of dollars. He paid cash for his latest real estate, and gambled up to a million dollars a year, according to a real estate agent who dealt with him. From the dailymail.co.uk: The 64-year-old, who opened fire slaughtering 58 people at a country music festival at the weekend, bought his 2,000 sq ft home in Mesquite,...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday he's sent a letter to President Trump, asking for a meeting to discuss gun control. "I have requested of the President to call us together, Democrats and Republicans, to come up with a reasonable solution. Before he was a candidate and marched in lockstep to the NRA, Donald Trump expressed a very reasonable position on gun control," Schumer said. Schumer described the National Rifle Association, a group that supports Americans' constitutional right to keep and bear arms, as a swamp: "Look, this is, I mean, this is the...
  • Facebook Censors Pro-Gun Video Mocking Weapon Hysteria

    Facebook censored a pro-gun video of a user mocking the hysteria around how “easy” it allegedly is to convert rifles to automatic fire. The video can be seen here, but can’t be embedded because it “may show graphic violence or gore.” The censored video doesn’t show violence or gore. It shows Facebook user Andy Orlando disassembling a rifle and handgun while joking about converting them to automatic fire. In reality, he made the weapons completely useless. He pulled the slide spring out of his Sig handgun, and removed the bolt carrier group from his AR-15 rifle. The AR-15 is 100...
  • Watch A Man Convert His AR-15 So It Fires ‘70,000 Rounds A Minute’

    One man showed millions of people how to convert an AR-15 so that it can fire 70,000 rounds in a minute. All Andy Orlando used was a mil-spec butter knife, and he “converted” a handgun and rifle into automatic weapons in less than five minutes. He got the rifle to a sustained rate of fire of 70,000 rounds per minute, and the handgun to a rate of 2,000 rounds per minute. Absolutely incredible accomplishment. I don’t want to give any of his secrets away, so go ahead and watch the video.

    Before I started researching gun deaths, gun-control policy used to frustrate me. I wished the National Rifle Association would stop blocking common-sense reforms such as banning assault weapons, restricting silencers, shrinking magazine sizes and all the other measures that could make guns less deadly. Then, my colleagues and I at Five­ThirtyEight spent three months analyzing all 33,000 lives ended by guns each year in the United States, and I wound up frustrated in a whole new way. We looked at what interventions might have saved those people, and the case for the policies I’d lobbied for crumbled when I examined...

    The time has come to repeal the Second Amendment, New York Times columnist Bret Stephens argued Thursday, joining the chorus of liberal voices calling for drastic action on gun control following the Las Vegas massacre. The supposedly conservative-leaning Stephens, who was hired by the NYT in April to “broaden the range” of debate appearing in the paper’s typically progressive editorial pages, said incremental gun control measures would not be enough. “Americans who claim to be outraged by gun crimes should want to do something more than tinker at the margins of a legal regime that most of the developed world...
