    <p>For Republicans in Virginia, it’s time to face facts. We’re slowly becoming Maryland. Yes, we may have a Republican state legislature, but majorities in both houses hang by a thread. The Northern Virginia suburbs, where I live, are chock full of insufferable liberals who drive the direction of the whole state. The days of this state going to the GOP are over. The Obamaites infested the Old Dominion and never left. The next gubernatorial election is not until 2021, but we already have one anti-gun voice that says he’s in: state Attorney General Mark Herring.</p>

    Civil War: French citizens fed up with their government’s elitism and out-of-touch policymaking — like allowing millions of West-hating Muslims into the country — have taken to the streets in recent weeks following the imposition of a massive new fuel (carbon) tax aimed at fulfilling the country’s “climate change” obligations via the 2015 Paris Climate Accords. Reports on Thursday even said that “Yellow Jacket” leaders may be planning armed violence aimed at overthrowing President Emmanuel Macron, whose approval rating is in the basement. Whether the coup happens or not, it’s pretty evident, judging by the news coming out of France...

  • Hot Take Alert: Left Wing Publication Uses Romaine Lettuce Scare To Craft Anti-Gun Talking Point.

     When it comes to inane hot takes on social issue, the Left never fails, and neither do their publications that peddle drivel on a daily basis. Yet, while Russian collusion hysteria has taken over the left wing blogosphere, anti-gun hot takes will always rise to the top. Right now, we’re being told by the CDC to stay the hell away from romaine lettuce. The warnings are pervasive, with health updates, breaking news alerts, and the blaring sirens: don’t eat romaine. Over at the left wing Think Progress, they’re wondering why there aren’t any such updates about gun violence. Yeah, it’s...

    Warning: If you have not taken mind-altering prescription drugs yet, don’t, because if anyone has a good story, which can even be a total lie about you being a “danger” or “threat” to society in any way, all they need is a sympathetic judge, and then a swat team will be raiding your house in the early morning hours to take your guns. Should you resist, you will be shot to death on the spot, in your own home, even if you’ve never committed a crime, and all your guns are legally obtained. Currently, there is an attempt to scrub...

    It’s a mother’s instinct to protect her children, to nurture and care for them. Why would a self-ascribed “mom” go on a crusade to take away the right of mothers and fathers to protect their children? Why would this heroic mom want to restrict the family’s ability to protect the ones they love? Why would that mother want to take away protections for school kids, emboldening evil by creating and promoting more gun-free zones? Why would anyone get behind that same “mom” who worked for Monsanto, who promoted cancer-causing herbicide in children’s breakfast cereals? Who is this mom and what...

    We need to keep this in mind as our “representatives” try to push gun bans. I don’t care if 99% of people are in support of gun bans (which is far from the case), it is a violation of our constitutional rights, plain and simple. A constitutional republic protects the rights of the individual even when their ideas are very much in the minority. If I were the only person in America who believed in the 2nd amendment, I would still be within my rights to call upon it. You would all think I was insane and possibly celebrate if...

    See what happens when you violate the rights of the people? This is only the beginning and I hope the family of this man sues the pants off the police and the state for their lawless behavior. A Ferndale, Maryland man was shot and killed at home when two Anne Arundel County police officers who were violating their oath and this man’s Fifth Amendment rights by attempting to steal his property (guns) under Maryland’s unconstitutional “red flag” “laws.” The Baltimore Sun reports: The man, whose name was not released, answered his door in the 100 block of Linwood Ave. at...

    Josh Hawley, the Republican candidate for Senate in Missouri, on Saturday, demanded an FBI probe of a dirty-tricks campaign mailer that wrongly accuses him of opposing gun rights. The mailers urge voters to back a Libertarian or Independent voter over Mr. Hawley and do not include required disclaimers identifying who paid for them. “Voters telling me about fake & illegal mailers pro-Dem group is putting out. There should be an FBI investigation,” Mr. Hawley, the state attorney general, wrote on Twitter. He called for Democrat incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill to cooperate in a probe.

  • Domestic Violence Law Renewal Full of Leftist Statutory Devices, Restricts Gun Rights

    Judicial Watch ^ | October 4, 2018
    The renewal of a law enacted decades ago to protect women against domestic violence crimes is loaded with leftist statutory devices, restricts gun rights and dramatically expands the definition of domestic violence to include verbal, emotional, technological, and economic abuse. Judicial Watch dissected the proposed bill, Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2018 (VAWA), which was introduced in the House over the summer by Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee, and found a multitude of alarming changes that should not be approved if the law is reauthorized. Originally passed in 1994, VAWA has been renewed and broadened over the years to...

    (The new coordinator of the Pink Pistols, Erin Palette, addressed the crowd at the Gun Rights Policy Conference in Chicago.) Two of the gun industry’s most prominent LGBTQ pro-gun organizations — the Pink Pistols and Operation Blazing Sword — have teamed up to better enhance the fight for gun rights for all. The two organizations announced their merger at the 33rd Annual Gun Rights Policy Conference held in Chicago in late September. Accompanying the merger was the announcement that current First Speaker for Pink Pistols, Gwen Patton, would be stepping down from her leadership role. In her place, Operation...

    Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter was killed in the Parkland, Fla., high school shooting, slammed Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, saying his life and family haven't been ruined by allegations of sexual assault. Kavanaugh appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday and said his life, reputation and his family were forever changed since Christine Blasey Ford accused him of trying to rape her at a party in 1982. Guttenberg took to Twitter on Thursday after the hearing, denouncing the judge for portraying himself as a “victim.” “Justice Kavanaugh your life and family are not ruined,” Guttenberg wrote. “Try having a...

    An intern in Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) Washington, D.C., office was reportedly arrested on Capitol Hill this week for possessing unregistered ammunition. U.S. Capitol Police told CNN in a statement that officers responded to a “dispute” between the intern, Scott Frantz, and another individual in Franz’s car near the Capitol. Police found shotgun shells in the back of Frantz’s vehicle and arrested him, according to the report reviewed by CNN. The 20-year-old was charged with possession of unregistered ammunition, a violation of D.C. firearm and ammunition possession restrictions. An aide for Cruz told CNN that Frantz has been placed on...

    During the August 18, 2018, airing of Breitbart News Saturday, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry explained that he chose, in part, to withhold $600 million from Citigroup and Bank of America because they are “trying to become the social police.” On August 16, 2018, Breitbart News reported Landry’s decision to withhold the $600 million, a decision shared by the Louisiana Bond Commission and State Treasurer John Schroder. The decision to withhold the money came after Citigroup and Bank of America each unilaterally placed gun control demands on their customers, going so far as to stipulate that bank-sponsored gun regulations had...

    A federal judge on Friday tossed out a motion from three national gun control groups seeking a last-minute halt to a settlement that would allow for blueprints of 3-D printed firearms to be posted and dowloaded online. Reuters reports that U.S. District Judge Robert Pitman in Austin, Texas, blocked the motion filed earlier this week seeking a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction on the case to halt design plans for 3-D printed guns from going online. The federal government had argued until recently that such blueprints posed a national security risk to the United States, but in June abruptly...

    Conservative students in at least 13 cities across the country rallied for gun rights on Saturday in an attempt to counter months of protests from the student-led March For Our Lives gun control movement. Organizers with the March for Our Rights planned rallies in Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., among other cities, on Saturday, expecting modest turnout compared to the large-scale marches earlier this year in favor of tougher gun restrictions. Newsweek reported about 250 people were attending the California rally. Speakers at Saturday's events in Washington included NRATV host Cam Edwards. Former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh spoke at...

    Judge Brett Kavanaugh, in the running to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, appears to share President Trump’s views on immigration and protecting the American worker. In two dissenting opinions and one concurring opinion for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, Kavanaugh sided with American citizens and U.S. industry over illegal aliens and foreign competitors — opinions that align to Trump’s “America First” approach to the U.S. economy, immigration, worker protections, and trade.

    God Squad I: It takes unmitigated gall of the most classic kind to toss God Almighty into the Gun Rights mix, and that’s what Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo had when he appointed himself ‘Supreme God Squad One’ within hours of the Santa Fe High School massacre, which claimed 10 student lives and injuring 10 more, including John Barnes, a retired Houston police officer who was working as a high school resource officer at Santa Fe High. “God hasn’t instructed me to believe that Gun Rights are bestowed by him” is Chief Acevedo’s take on the latest shooting, somewhat akin...

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming school district where U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos suggested that teachers might need to be armed to protect children from grizzly bears voted Tuesday on doing just that, though concerns about school shootings worry parents more than the possibility of big bruins on the prowl. The 4-2 vote by the Park County School District No. 6 board in the town of Cody near Yellowstone National Park came after more than six months of discussion and debate. Under the proposed policy...
