    States are seen as the laboratories for democracy. They can be places to cite great public policy successes and highlight the many horrible failures. As more Democratic states adopt more anti-gun policies, there are fears that the groundwork for confiscation is being set. Of all places, you would think that California, or New York, would be the place that Second Amendment rights advocates fear would be the test area for such policies. Nope. It’s actually Hawaii. The Aloha State is the first in the country that requires its gun-owning residents to enter a federal database (via NRA Hunters): Hawaii’s...

    Connnecticut State Police Maj. William Podgorski, one of the lead investigator in the Sandy Hook shooting investigation, died earlier this week. Podgorski, 49, died on Monday following a brief illness and surgery. The illness was undisclosed ... Sometime after surgery on Friday, Podgorski was transferred to Yale-New Haven Hospital from another hospital, Grant said. He died there Monday morning surrounded by his family. ... Podgorski was not only a part of the Sandy Hook investigation, but also was a hero in the community he served. He was awarded the Lifesaving Award from the department in 2006 after he came upon...

    On Thursday Senator Ted Cruz took to the Senate floor to address the Islamic terrorist attack in Orlando. The speech he gave should be the standard Republican response to the left’s deflection towards gun-control instead of addressing the real issue at hand: defeating radical Islamic terrorism.

    Katie Couric’s 2014 documentary Fed Up includes instances of deceptive editing similar to 2016’s Under the Gun, according to several people familiar with the making of the film. Fed Up, which focuses on obesity and the food industry, was directed by Stephanie Soechtig and produced by Couric. The film includes two interviews with figures who hold viewpoints counter to the narrative of the film, and sources say both interviews include at least one misleading or deceptive edit intended to embarrass the interviewee. Dr. David Allison, an interview subject in the film and the director of the Nutrition Obesity Research Center,...

    This is not a clickbait headline. This is an actual, real thing that the president just proposed in the second half of this PBS Newshour video: Starting at the 1:57 mark, Obama says: I just came from a meeting, today, in the situation room, in which I’ve got people who we know have been on ISIL websites living here in the United States — US citizens. And we’re allowed to put them on the no fly list when it comes to airlines, but because of the National Rifle Association I cannot prohibit those people from buying guns! This is somebody...

    During a PBS town hall meeting, president Obama was asked why he and Hillary want to control and restrict guns and ammunition to responsible gun owners. Obama's response was the typical stock answer of rejecting the "notion" that anyone is hell-bent on taking away "folks' guns", yada yada. However, as AllOutdoor notes, if you listen carefully to Obama's full response, there is a comment Obama gives about knowing browser history that should sent everyone into a blind rage. "I just came from a meeting, today, in the situation room, in which I’ve got people who we know have been on...

    On Sunday, Hillary Clinton just couldn’t bring herself to say on ABC's "This Week" that Americans have an individual right to own guns. But it didn’t stop her from denying Donald Trump’s claim that she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. Clinton accused Trump of making “outright fabrications, accusing me of something that is absolutely untrue.” From changing the Supreme Court to make it possible to again ban guns in the United States to making it more costly to own guns, I predict that a President Hillary Clinton will do four things to either ban guns or at least reduce...

    Producer Katie Couric and Director Stephanie Soechtig stand accused of doctoring the responses of a group of participants in their anti-gun propaganda film, Under the Gun. If substantiated, the claim will destroy Couric’s reputation as a journalist and Soechtig’s reputation as a director. It appears that the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) participants have the evidence in the form of audio from the interview that substantiates their claims.

    There was a recent domestic shooting in Maryland.  The presumed perpetrator was a federal law enforcement officer.  He is reported to have killed his estranged wife and two other people.   His wife had a protective order against him in March, and the Federal Protective Service, of which Mr. Tordil was a member, took his service firearm and seven other firearms.This was in Maryland, which requires handguns to be registered. From the washingtonpost.com: Sheriff’s deputies can’t be faulted for not knowing about that gun because, thanks to the national gun lobby and the cowardice of Congress, there is no...

    Proponents of more gun control for American citizens are frequently people who live their lives surrounded by good guys with guns. Moreover, gun control proponents are also people who use tragedies as an opportunity to push more gun laws even when said laws would have done nothing to prevent the tragedy that occurred. Occasionally, all these hypocritical qualities are found in one person or, in this case, seven people.

    resident Obama will officially announce new executive actions on gun control from the White House Tuesday, but released details about what to expect Monday evening. Here is a portion of what has been released, you can read the rest at WhiteHouse.gov: 1. Keep guns out of the wrong hands through background checks. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is making clear that it doesn’t matter where you conduct your business—from a store, at gun shows, or over the Internet: If you're in the business of selling firearms, you must get a license and conduct background checks. ATF is...

    In 2013, the New York City Police Department began sending notices to certain gun owners using a “…centralized firearms registry which lists the city’s gun owners and what firearms they have in their possession.” The notice referred to firearms prohibited under New York’s “Safe Act,” the law passed (in part) in vengeful retaliation against law abiding owners of so-called “Assault Weapons” for the murders at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. The gun owners were given a simple choice—surrender the now illegally held guns to the police, remove them from the city, destroy them or become a wanted...

    The banning of private gun ownership in Venezuela has made firearms such a valuable commodity that 57% of police killed in the nation’s capital this year were targeted for their weapons, according to Venezuela’s largest newspaper. El Universal reports that 57% of police killed in Gran Caracas–the greater Caracas metro area–were robbed for their guns, according to official national security statistics “obtained extra-officially.” These include both common police and the members of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces, which operate on a federal level. Of the 47 police killings on the record in 2015, 27 occurred as part of a gun...

    Navy Veteran John Arnold of Priest River, Idaho, received a letter from the VA informing him that he is no longer allowed to purchase or own guns, When the Department of Veterans Affairs determines a veteran unable to take care of his financial affairs, it reports the assessment to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Once NICS gets the report, it labels the veteran “incapacitated,” which means that he along with his family members who live in the same household are barred by law from buying or owning firearms. On July 30, 2015, Navy Veteran John Arnold...

    Have you ever thought of letting someone else manage your finances? If President Obama has his way, Social Security recipients who have trouble managing their finances will be banned from buying a gun. If Social Security were to start classifying these people as “mentally defective,” some 4.2 million Social Security recipients could be affected – about 10 percent of all people 65 and older. But it is a real reach to say those who can’t manage their finances are a physical danger to themselves or others. What is next? Saying that people who can’t drive well or fail a math...

    The allegations in the case are downright scary. The complaint contends that Montgomery, a Navy veteran and retired police officer who rose to the rank of detective sergeant during his 30-year career, voluntarily sought treatment for insomnia at a hospital on Long Island in May of 2014 after relocating to a new home several hundred miles from his previous residence. According to the suit, the hospital diagnosed the plaintiff as “mildly depressed,” and his clinical evaluation stated, “Patient has no thoughts of hurting himself. Patient has no thoughts of hurting others. Patient is not having suicidal thoughts. Patient is not...

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | November 13, 2014 | IBD EDITORIALS
    Gun Control: To some, concern over a U.N. Arms Trade Treaty set to take effect Dec. 24 is much ado about nothing. But a president unconstrained by Congress or the Constitution may try to impose severe limits on gun rights. All treaties must be ratified by two-thirds of the Senate, and that's not about to happen in the case of the unratified Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), particularly after the 2014 election that gave the GOP Senate control. The same, of course, could have been said about the Kyoto Protocol and other climate change deals that mandate that governments tie their...

    A bill allowing family members to ask a judge to order firearms removed from people likely to commit gun violence advanced in California on Wednesday, one of several gun control measures up for votes in the last week of the state's legislative session. The measure was introduced after police near Santa Barbara said they were unable to confiscate weapons from a man who later went on a rampage and killed six people, despite concern from his family that he was in poor mental health and might become violent. The bill passed the senate 23-8. It passed the assembly once, but...
