    “I’ve talked with quite a few concerned citizens today so let me clear something up,” he wrote on Facebook. “I’ve taken 3 public oaths, one in the US Army and Two as a police officer. All of them included upholding and defending the Constitution of the United States of America.” He added: The second amendment says the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. As long as I am Chief of Police, no Republic Police Officer will infringe on a citizens right to keep and Bear Arms, PERIOD!

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) tweeted Sunday to claim no one is immune from gun violence and it is time for Congress to pass more gun laws. Harris referenced Parkland, the site of the February 14 attack that killed 17 innocents, Chicago, the city of relentless violence and death, and Los Angeles, where 14 people were recently killed in an attack at the Borderline Bar & Grill. Harris did not mention that Parkland was a gun-free zone, that Chicago has long been an experiment in gun control, and that the Borderline Bar & Grill is a state-mandated gun-free business.She tweeted: No...
  • The Gun Control Question That Stopped Eric Swalwell In His Tracks

    Townhall.com ^ | November 19, 2018 | Scott Morefield
    California Rep. Eric Swalwell is not just a fresh-faced rising star in the Democratic party, he’s also one of the few high-profile liberal politicians who have showed a willingness to mix it up with the best conservative thinkers and arguments out there, as his multiple forays into the ideological lion’s den of Tucker Carlson Tonight attest. Sure, Swalwell almost always emerges from those battles bloody and bruised, figuratively speaking, but to his credit he takes his knocks and keeps on fighting, always willing to take on the ‘enemy’ on his own turf. For that, he has earned my grudging respect....

    Almost every single person I’ve ever heard of with an AR-15 has been a mass murderer. Based on Twitter sample the rest of them are scarily paranoid. Get on the right side of history . . Wow, Rep. Eric Swalwell and his nukes have really kick-started that conversation on that “common-sense gun control” they always want to have.

    The city of Republic in Washington state is mulling legislation that would shield residents from state gun control laws that were approved by voters last week. Republic Mayor Elbert Koontz said the Republic City Council will begin discussing the idea of becoming a “sanctuary city” to protect residents against Initiative 1639, which goes into effect Jan. 1, The Spokesman-Review reported. The sweeping gun-control measure includes raising the age limit for buying semi-automatic rifles from 18 to 21 and requiring buyers of those weapons to pass an enhanced background check, show proof of firearms-training and complete a 10-day waiting period before...

    BBC News ^ | 11/12/2018
    When America's powerful pro-gun group told doctors to mind their own business, the response was swift, furious and viral. "Unless you've had someone's heart stop beating in your hands, you don't get to tell those of us who have what is and is not our 'lane'," trauma surgeon David Morris, 42, told the BBC. The National Rifle Association's tweet on Wednesday sparked anger. It came just hours before a gunman killed 12 people in a California bar. "Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane," the NRA tweeted.
  • By the numbers: Here's how many gun control advocates won House seats

    CNBC ^ | Nov 2018 | John W. Schoen, Emma Newburger
    After heavy spending by both sides of the issue, gun control proponents picked up seats in House midterm races as gun rights advocates lost ground. Based on House voting records tracked by the National Rifle Association, more than two dozen gun rights proponents won't be returning to Congress. Meanwhile, House Democrats expanded the number of gun control advocates in their caucus. The new majority includes dozens of candidates who support gun control, including Lucy McBath in Georgia, whose 17-year-old son was fatally shot in 2012 and who made gun violence the centerpiece of her campaign. Sixty-one percent of voters who...

    Focus spurred by an incoming class of lawmakers with ‘F’ NRA ratings who campaigned on the issue ______________________________________________________________________ WASHINGTON—Democrats say they will pass the most aggressive gun-control legislation in decades when they become the House majority in January, plans they renewed this week in the aftermath of a mass killing in a California bar. Their efforts will be spurred by an incoming class of pro-gun-control lawmakers who scored big in Tuesday’s midterm elections, although any measure would likely meet stiff resistance in the GOP-controlled Senate. Democrats ousted at least 15 House Republicans with “A” National Rifle Association ratings, while the...

    The mother of a man who survived the Las Vegas shooting but was killed in the Thousand Oaks shooting Wednesday night told local reporters that she wanted policy change over thoughts and prayers for her son's death. “My son was in Las Vegas with a lot of his friends and he came home. He didn’t come home last night, and I don’t want prayers. I don’t want thoughts,”

    THE INQUIRER ^ | November 5, 2018 | Samantha Melamed,
    On Friday afternoon, with just a few hours before sundown and the start of the Sabbath, David Parvey hurried to a South Philadelphia gun shop called Firing Line to get his new 9-millimeter pistol. To Parvey, who attends an Orthodox Jewish synagogue in Center City, it felt like the only rational response to the Oct. 27 mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, where 11 congregants were killed. "I legally have the right to at least be able to match evil with some sort of response, and in my mind I would be dumb not to," said...

    Kudos to Jake Tapper. On his State of the Union CNN show this morning, not only did Tapper raise with Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams the legislation she introduced as a member of the Georgia legislature that would have forced Georgians to surrender their "assault weapons." Tapper then twice pressed Abrams on it as she tried to dance away.Abrams's weasel word of the day: "conversation." No fewer than five times Abrams claimed she was merely trying to start a "conversation" on the subject. Sorry, Ms. Abrams: when you introduce legislation, you're not merely starting a conversation. You're expressing what...

    Daily Caller ^ | November 1, 2018 | John R Lott Jr
    The media and Democrats were apoplectic about President Trump’s comments after the horrific shooting attack at the Pittsburgh synagogue. For the most part, the media viewed his condolences as pitch-perfect. What upset them were Trump’s remarks about gun control. When asked whether the shooting meant that we should have more gun laws, Trump responded, “Well, again, this has little to do with it. If they had protection inside, the results would have been far better. This is a dispute that will always exist, I suspect.” A New York Times news article referred to “the president’s assertion that gun laws had...

    Steven Clifford, author and former CEO of the King Broadcasting Company and National Mobile Television, told PJM that the federal government should “prohibit straight white males from voting” in U.S. elections as a way to “save” democracy. “I think it’s the only hope for democracy in America and I will be leading a great movement to prohibit straight white males, who I believe supported Donald Trump by about 85 percent, from exercising the franchise and I think that will save our democracy,” Clifford said during an interview after speaking at the forum “Destroying the Myths of Market Fundamentalism,” which was...

    Democrat Stacey Abrams would not say Tuesday whether she would support rounding up AR-15 firearms from Georgians if elected governor. Conservative co-host of "The View" Meghan McCain read out a list of Abrams' gun control bona fides, including her "F" rating from the National Rifle Association and endorsements from the group Everytown for Gun Safety and gun control activist Michael Bloomberg. "Do you, like Everytown, support banning the AR-15?" McCain asked. Abrams replied she was not "anti-gun," talking about her enjoyment of trap shooting and target shooting, but she also touted her support of background checks, three-day waiting periods, and...

    I know this is a crazy idea from an ignorant foreigner – but why don't you just TRY giving up some of your guns, to see what happens? Start with the AR-15, which is now used in almost every mass shooting. Make it more difficult, not easier, for lunatics to murder.

    President Trump is being blamed by liberal news outlets and pundits for the actions of a madman, who shot up a Pittsburg synagogue on Saturday, leaving eleven innocent people dead and many more wounded. He’s also being blamed for the actions of an unstable bomb-maker who recently sent bombs to high-level Democrats through the mail. Liberals are shamefully calling the disturbed man, with a criminal history that goes back decades, “The MAGAbomber.” President Obama responded to fourteen mass shootings as the President of the United States, including synagogue and church shootings. Which one of these was he blamed for? (SEE...

They didn’t.” Another mass public shooting. Our hearts go out to those who lost loved ones and friends at the Pittsburgh Tree of Life Synagogue. Fortunately, we finally have a president who understands how to stop these attacks. These gun-free zones serve as magnets for these attacks. Killers go to where victims are defenseless. When are we ever going to learn that virtually all these mass public shootings occur in places where people aren’t allowed to protect themselves....
