    AP ^ | 23 July 2016 | By LISA MARIE PANE and RYAN J. FOLEY
    Americans increasingly favor tougher gun laws by margins that have grown wider after a steady drumbeat of shootings in recent months, but they also are pessimistic that change will happen anytime soon, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll.
  • Yes, The Australian Model On Gun Control Means Bans and Confiscation

    Nobody wants to take your guns. That's what most mainstream pro-gun control Democrats say ad nauseam at various rallies. There's also the "I support the Second Amendment, but…" that advocates of gun control say prior to offering some pie-in-the-sky policy proposals that usually venture into bans on so-called assault rifles, limiting magazine sizes, or an all-out ban on semi-automatic firearms. That's essentially a gun ban. Both Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama have praised the Australian-model of gun control, which the National Rifle Association decided to explain at length in a recent video. It deals with gun buybacks, confiscation, and bans....

    The new guidelines, updated for the first time since 2009 and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, come from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force—an independent volunteer panel of primary care doctors that makes prevention-based medical recommendations. The panel previously advised that adults should be screened for depression when mental health services were available, a limitation the panel says is no longer needed now that screening services are more widely available and accepted as a part of mental health care. Better yet, the panel gave its recommendation a "B" grading, which means depression screening must be covered...

    Liberals like to talk about women’s rights but among those rights is, or should be, the second right enshrined in the Constitution’s Bill of Rights -- the right to keep and bear arms to protect one’s self. A woman’s body is her own, liberals tell us, and she has the right to choose to have an abortion. But the same liberals would deny women like Kimberly Corban the right to defend her body, and her children, with a firearm against the predators who lurk among us.

    And with Anderson Cooper's help, he flogs the conspiracy strawman You don’t think someone has this backward, do you? The president of the United States is determined to shove gun control down the throats of a nation that decidedly does not want it, and the president is very frustrated with the people for disagreeing with him. I’ve had enough of your insolence! CNN thought it would be a good idea to host a town hall, with an audience consisting of partisans on both sides of the issue, so Obama could calmly explain his position and “bridge the gap.” Yeah. That...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Theories abound as to what Obama was doing yesterday at the pep rally on gun control. The first thing he was doing was attacking the Constitution. Make no mistake. I sit here and I have an objective -- I've had it for a long time -- and that is to educate as many people as possible about liberalism and how it operates, how to recognize it, what it is. It's an ongoing thing; it will never end. It's an ongoing educational process, and then after people learn it, there's something about socialism that just attracts people. I...

    Obama can't do much on guns, but he has mainstreamed a dangerous idea about governing.Over the winter break I finally got around to binge-watching “Parks and Recreation.” In case you missed the show's seven-year run, it's about a fascistic, small-town councilwoman who believes it's a politician's job to impose her notions of morality, safety, and decency on everyone, no matter what voters want or what the system dictates. She is justifiably recalled by the people of her town after attempting to regulate portion sizes at fast food restaurants, but ends up running a federal office where she can do big...

    BizPac Review ^ | 1/5/16 | Steve Berman
    President Obama‘s press secretary cited “30,000 gun deaths in America” as the reason his boss should end-run Congress to implement new gun controls–but he omitted a key fact. Press Secretary Josh Earnest answered a reporter’s question if there was any opposition to the president’s plan to take executive action to close a so-called “gun show loophole” while making private gun sales more difficult for citizens. Looking down at his talking points, he started reeling off statistics about gun deaths, police shot, and other violent crimes committed with guns. But he missed the part where 20,000 of those gun deaths were by...

    DPA international ^ | January 5, 2015 | Anne K. Walters dpa
    Washington (dpa) - US President Barack Obama is seeking to expand background checks on gun buyers as part of efforts to be announced Tuesday that attempt to keep more criminals from getting guns. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive will clarify its rules to require anyone engaged in the business of selling firearms regardless of the location to have a license and conduct background checks, US officials told reporters late Monday. "The goal is keeping bad actors away from firearms," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said. The move that Obama will announce aims to target sellers who have avoided...

    The FBI processed a record number of firearms-related background checks last year, indicating that more guns were sold in 2015 than in any previous year in American history. More than 23 million checks were processed through the National Instant Background Check System in 2015, an all-time record.The all-time record for yearly sales comes after May, June, July, August, September, October, November, and December 2015 each set sales records for their respective months. In December the FBI conducted 3,314,594 checks, an increase of more than half a million checks over the previous single-month record set in December 2012.The number of FBI...

    It is not a novel idea -- the notion that the route to gun control is not by attacking the right to bear arms which the U.S. Supreme Court has declared to be both an individual and a national right, but to use that old standby, regulation, to dry up the supply of bullets. It was that idea that was endorsed by Fox News host Greta Van Susteren when she appeared on ABCs This Week...

    RUSH: But I want to, ladies and gentlemen, for the moment focus on the incident in Oregon involving guns. The president went out and spoke late Friday afternoon at the White House, had a press conference. During the Q&A, Jonathan Karl of ABC News said, "Back in July, Mr. President, you said that the gun issue has been the most frustrating of your presidency. We certainly heard that frustration from you last night. So in the last 15 months of your presidency, do you intend to do anything differently to get Congress to act or to do something about this...

    The lying President of the United States said this, We know that the states with the most gun laws tend to have the fewest gun deaths. So the notion that gun laws dont work, or just will make it harder for law-abiding citizens and criminals will still get their guns is not born out by the evidence. Right Only in the mind of Barack Obama. Would the President like to attempt some fifth grade level research? Heres 15 states with the strictest gun laws (in order): California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Rhode Island, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Michigan,...

    President Obama announced a new executive order on Tuesday which authorizes federal agencies to conduct behavioral experiments on U.S. citizens in order to advance government initiatives. A growing body of evidence demonstrates that behavioral science insights research findings from fields such as behavioral economics and psychology about how people make decisions and act on them can be used to design government policies to better serve the American people, reads the executive order, released on Tuesday. The new program is the end result of a policy proposal the White House floated in 2013 entitled Strengthening Federal Capacity for Behavioral...

    Despite the undeniable mental issues affecting black, gay Democrat Vester Flanagan, who was not sporting a Confederate flag before he shot and killed his two former KDBJ coworkers, reporter Alison Parker and photojournalist Adam Ward, the fact is that he passed a background check and legally possessed the Glock handgun he used. As much as we all want to prevent the mentally unstable from possessing firearms, the fact is that there was nothing in Flanagans background to prevent him from legally owning a firearm.

    Fed up with the passage of an 18-page incoherent, rambling, unconstitutional gun control initiative that was bankrolled by billionaires, gun owners across Washington state held the largest felony civil disobedience rally in the nations history, brazenly titled I Will Not Comply. No one was hurt and no stores were looted. Between 1,000 and 3,000 lawful gun owners showed up openly armed at the state capitol in Olympia, Wash., on Saturday to defy the newly passed gun control law, I-594. Organizer Gavin Seim made the extraordinary nature of the rally very clear, "This isnt just a protest. We are here to...
