    On Monday, Muslim convert Martin Rouleau ran down 2 members of the Canadian military, killing one and injuring another before he was shot and killed by police. Yesterday a second Muslim convert and terrorist Michael Zehaf-Bibeau killed a soldier outside of the Parliament building in Ottawa before sauntering inside to wound a number of MPs. Countless other members of the Canadian government had “…barricaded themselves behind doors reinforced with furniture.” “It’s terrifying to think how high the body count may have been if not for the courage of Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers. The former Mountie is being widely praised as a...

    These Four Walls A little bird dropped a News item in my lap the other day; with the cacophony of anti-gun rhetoric driving emotional responses on all sides, I found it impossible to not see the irony juxtaposed with current events. It’s no secret that those who promote obtuse gun control want a range of controls in place to prevent the mentally-ill from acquiring weapons to facilitate violent tendencies; aside from the patently obvious objections to the rhetoric, my objection here is the widening definition of mentally-ill and its application. Suggesting that medical doctors may serve as officers of this encroachment is...

    GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons rarely shies away from controversy--even when wading into the contentious debate over gun violence in this country. Parsons, a gun owner and member of the National Rifle Association, says that firearms aren’t to blame for mass shootings. That’s a hotly-debated and emotional topic, especially after a gunman killed 20 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.

    Politics: More than two dozen House Democrats are pushing the Senate to revive and ratify the nomination of Dr. Vivek Murthy to a critical post, but helping to fight deadly disease is not what they have in mind. The question of the day is why we have or need an Ebola czar in the form of political operative/hack Ron Klain when we have an unfilled surgeon general's position that physician emeritus serving as America's doctor is supposed to fill. We have an acting Surgeon General, Rear Admiral Boris Lushniak, but he is seemingly just a placeholder instead of the force...

The Supreme Court will decide whether the federal prohibition on firearms for felons terminates all ownership rights. The US Supreme Court agreed on Monday to decide whether a Florida man convicted on drug charges and forced to give up his firearms under federal law could sell the guns or transfer ownership to his wife or a friend. The court agreed to hear an appeal filed by Tony Henderson, a former US border patrol agent who was convicted of distributing marijuana...

But I hadn’t realized that some of the earliest gun control initiatives were designed to oppress blacks. As Dave Kopel explains in Reason, the white power structure in many post-Civil War states was very anxious to disarm former slaves.

    A new firearm policy from the United Kingdom Home Office, put in force on October 15, has accelerated the once-proud nation's devolution into a police state. The Home Office's October 2014 "Guide on Firearms Licensing Law" adds a new rule allowing for police to conduct warrantless surprise inspections of a gun owner's firearm storage practices. As bad as that is, what's far worse is that the President of the United States cites England's gun control policies as a model for America to follow.

    As gun control proponent Gabby Giffords gets more "aggressive" in her push for gun control candidates, at least one of those candidates is distancing herself from the ads Giffords is running. New Hampshire's WMUR 9 ABC reports that though incumbent Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH 1st District) is thoroughly in favor of gun control, the tone of attack in Giffords' new ad is simply too much for her. The video on the outlet's website clearly demonstrates Shea-Porter's desire to move away from being associated with the former representative's ad.

    It’s disheartening to see the FBI used to promote a political agenda, but that’s what we got with the bureau’s release last month of a study claim to show a sharp rise in mass shootings, a la Newtown, Conn. The FBI counted 160 “mass” or “active” shootings in public places from 2000 to 2013. Worse, it said these attacks rose from just one in 2000 to 17 in 2013. Media outlets worldwide gave the “news” extensive coverage. Too bad the study is remarkably shoddy — slicing the evidence to distort the results. In fact, mass public shootings have only risen...

His words reflect a belief that the right to vote is so “precious” that requiring individuals to show an ID before casting a vote is tantamount to being “disenfranchised.” However, when it comes to protecting the right to “keep...

    Gun control in Britain passed in stages, beginning just after World War I and continuing in a reactionary fashion with increasing strictness through the 1990s. When the final stage arrived in 1997, and virtually all handguns were banned via the Firearms Act, the promise was a reduction in crime and greater safety for the British people. But the result was the emergence of Britain as the "most violent country in Europe." Britain began placing restrictions on gun ownership after World War I with the Firearms Act of 1920. .... The Firearms Act of 1920 did not ban guns. Rather, it...

    The Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee strongly criticized Congressman Rick Nolan (D-MN8) today after a picture was tweeted of Nolan committing a “significant firearms safety violation.” Bryan Strawser, the executive director of Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee, said in a press release: A picture[1] posted this morning on Twitter showed Mr. Nolan holding an AR-15 rifle with his finger on the trigger while in close proximity to others…The basic rules of firearms safety, taught to students as young as 12 in MN DNR hunter safety classes, state clearly that one’s finger should be kept off the trigger until...
  • Gun Control Activist Who Swore He Forgot He Was Packing Heat At School Gets JOKE Sentence

    Back in February, a Buffalo, N.Y. community activist who pushed for a highly restrictive 2013 gun control law was arrested for — wait for it — carrying a gun illegally at a public elementary school. The wheels of criminal justice have now slowly, slowly churned to completion. And wouldn’t you know it? The judge in the case has now found it in his heart to give the heat-packing activist, Dwayne Ferguson, a generously light sentence. On Monday, Judge John L. Michalek sentenced Ferguson to 100 hours of community service and a conditional discharge, according

    By Rhonda Little. [Republished with permission from rodalena.com] I like marbles. I don’t really like guns. No. Hang on: that’s wrong. That second sentence is not actually true. I do like some guns: there are many that are simply beautiful, much like the oddly mesmerizing beauty in the colorful smooth glass toys of children. Allow me to edit my intro with this more accurate statement: I don’t feel comfortable around guns. In fact, guns make me decidedly uncomfortable. They are tools of death, tools of pain. A guns is not a tool of creation, it is a tool of destruction....

    When a gunman attempted to murder Rep. Gabriel Giffords in January 2011, the country was shocked by what was widely interpreted as an act that symbolized the incivility that had transformed American politics. That assumption, which was primarily aimed at undermining the Tea Party movement that had swept the midterm elections months before in the 2010 midterms, was soon debunked when we learned the shooter was an apolitical madman. But liberals have never ceased yapping about the implications of their opponents’ alleged meanness. Now it turns out the person who is doing the most to give the lie to this...

    Never before have I felt so naked. Now more than ever, I wish I was armed. And I’m not alone. Any and all home-grown Islamic terrorism should be able, if need be, to be met by a well-armed civilian militia. The United Kingdom has had two beheadings of members of the public in the last two years, with neither police nor civilians able to prevent it. It has prohibitive gun laws. With news of the ISIS plot to randomly abduct members of the Australian public and behead them, Australian sentiment on guns is dramatically shifting. It appears Australians are finally...

    The risk of dying from a gunshot wound is twice as high for African Americans as it is for white Americans, according to a new study based on 11 years’ worth of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Between 2000 and 2010, the rate of firearm-related fatalities in the U.S. was 9.05 per 100,000 people for whites and 18.51 per 100,000 people for blacks. When factoring in the 3.38 deaths per 100,000 people of other races, the country’s overall gun-related death rate was 10.21 per 100,000 Americans, researchers reported Thursday in the journal BMJ Open. That racial...

    Moms Demand Action has suffered another setback in their effort to get more corporations to ban guns. Members of the group were asked to leave a Lansing, Michigan parking lot. According to local media reports, Kroger’s stance won’t stop Moms Demand Action’s ongoing protests at Kroger stores, however, said Linda Brundage, who heads the group’s mid-Michigan chapter. Brundage led a group of about 12 women at this morning’s protest.
