    MALIBU, Calif. (AP) — Dr. Dre has been cited after a man says the rapper pointed a handgun at him. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says the man told them he was parked outside a Malibu, California, home when Dre ordered him to leave and showed a gun. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, told sheriff's deputies he didn't have a gun and that the man was blocking his driveway. He says the man moved his car but parked nearby. He says the man drove off after Dre recorded video of him.
  • USA on Track for Most Gun Sales This Year

    Terrorism fears appear to be pushing more Americans to buy guns. FBI data show this was the busiest June ever for firearms dealers. Tom Hand continues to be busy–at his gun and pawn shop in Daphne. “People are concerned with their own safety and are still interested in carrying guns for their own personal defense outside of their home,” said Tom Hand with Goldmine Pawn. The Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando last month marked the single largest mass shooting in American history. That helped make June the busiest June on record for gun dealers with background checks up nearly 40-percent...

    During her July 25 speech at the Democrat National Convention, Michelle Obama talked about moving into the White House and watching “big men with guns” take their daughters to school. She said this by describing life after taking up residence in the White House. She recalled her daughters “setting off for their first day at their new school,” adding, “I will never forget that winter morning as I watched our girls–just seven and ten years old–pile into those black SUVs with all those big men with guns.” The audience responded with a warm applause as Mrs. Obama talked about seeing...

    Gun Control has been a losing political issue on the national stage for as long as there have been guns and elections. Democrats however are stupid and think this year things are going to be different. The problem is “gun control” sounds so fascist and Americans are kind of attached to their rights so a liberal think tank led by Gabby Giffords’ anti-gun group has come up with ways that democrats like Hillary Clinton can bullshit voters into thinking their unconstitutional efforts are something other than what they are. Politico reports that Giffords’ Americans For Responsible Solutions along with other...

    An Associated Press (AP) poll released July 23 shows that 59 percent of Americans disapprove of President Obama’s handling of gun laws, and an even greater majority, 62 percent, believe owning a gun makes people safer by “preventing them from becoming victims of crime.” The poll also shows that 53 percent of Americans support national reciprocity for concealed carry permits. National reciprocity renders a concealed carry permit issued in one state valid in every state. An overwhelming majority of respondents also said a “high priority” for law enforcement should be “cracking down on people who own guns illegally” and “cracking...

    NATICK — Massachusetts gun dealers sold more than 2,000 military-style rifles Wednesday — nearly one-quarter of the total sold last year — after Attorney General Maura Healey moved to bar semiautomatic rifles that have been altered slightly to evade the state’s assault weapons ban. The 2,251 assault rifles snapped up in a gun-buying frenzy represented a remarkable uptick from the 132 sold Tuesday and the 51 sold Monday, before Healey announced her ban. The numbers were first reported by Commonwealth Magazine.

    After the usual "assault rifles" are "weapon of war" used by "mass murderers" anti-AR agitprop, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey dropped this bombshell at The Boston Globe. The Massachusetts assault weapons ban mirrors the federal ban Congress allowed to expire in 2004. It prohibits the sale of specific weapons like the Colt AR-15 and AK-47 and explicitly bans "copies or duplicates" of those weapons. But gun manufacturers have taken it upon themselves to define what a "copy" or "duplicate" weapon is. They market "state compliant" copycat versions of their assault weapons to Massachusetts buyers. They sell guns without a flash...

    The Islamist terror attack in Nice France, carried out by a jihadist in a heavy truck, should be yet another blow to the Democrat gun control movement in the U.S., and an indictment of the Euro-socialist model of government that the left adores. First and most obviously, the attacker used a commonly available, useful, but potentially dangerous tool to slaughter many more people than his fellow jihadist in Orlando managed with firearms. Are we to ban heavy trucks now? It is probable that some Islamist nutcase in America will try to imitate his French co-religionist. When that occurs will President...

    With Democrats unable to sell their awful ideas on gun control policy, they’re becoming more and more irrational in their future proposals. Right now, there’s a piece of legislation that’s destined for legislative death, which would ban people under the age of 16 from firing AR-15 rifles ("weapons of war"), or any firearm considered to be “military-style” because that’s totally enforceable, said by no one ever (via The Hill): The proposal—from Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.)—would ban people younger than 16 from having or firing a machine gun or assault weapon. “The small hands of...

One way or the other, though, Americans are continuing to acquire guns at an unprecedented level. The FBI reported this week that in June 2016, firearm-related background checks set a new record for any month of June, up 39% from the number of checks conducted in June 2015. For...

Or should we conservatives instead tell everyone to take a deep breath and first have the administration show that they're willing to deal with Black Lives Matter as a terrorist group, as they should have been dealt with practically from the start? After that, then we can discuss what, if any steps, need to be taken to cut down on mass killings.

The SKS was designed in the 40’s in Russia. It is such a basic rifle that it is legal in California with no modification. With its fixed ten round magazine, the SKS is everything that the gun haters...

    Democrat Rep. G.K. Butterfield blamed Republicans for the five officers who were massacred by a racially motivated gunman in Dallas Thursday night. “The Republicans in Congress are refusing to address gun violence in America that targets black men and black women and Hispanic men and Hispanic women and, yes, even police officers,” Butterfield said while flanked by other members of the Congressional Black Caucus — just hours after five officers were shot and killed while trying to protect protestors who were rallying against police brutality....

    Authorities: Tennessee highway gunman motivated by police shootings A man accused of shooting indiscriminately at passing cars and police on a Tennessee highway told investigators he was angry about police violence against African-Americans, authorities said Friday.

    If you dont read anything else today, go read this. Yet, notice the pertinent language of the Second Amendment: “The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” In stark contrast to the Fourth Amendment, the Second Amendment does not say gun rights “shall not be unreasonably infringed.” Reasonableness has nothing to do with the matter, nor does crisis management. How could they? The Second Amendment aims to maintain the people’s power of self-defense, including against the government. Since that is the point of the right, nothing could be more unreasonable than to allow its...

    In Texas, 1 million people have handgun permits Sheena McKenzie At a protest against police violence in Dallas, a young man wanders the streets with a gun casually slung over his shoulder. The hefty weapon hangs all the way from his hip to his ankle, apparently barely raising the eyebrows of passersby. A few hours after the Dallas shooting, local police posted a photo of the man on Twitter, saying: "This is one of our suspects. Please help us find him!" Videos later emerged online purportedly showing the man peacefully walking in the crowd during the shooting. The original tweet...

    A cloud hangs over America: do you see protection or control?Yes Barry, you’re right; this is “an American issue.” And it’s not just a gun issue it’s a racial issue. To be clear: if a black man is killed in America, it’s a racial issue. If anyone else gets killed in America it’s a gun issue.And while it’s hard to precisely pinpoint when this became absolute truth I think we can all agree that it started in 2009, when the President of the United States - in the absence of any facts - declared that the arrest of his friend,...
