  • Politico: Nancy Pelosi Says Amnesty, Gun Control Among Top Priorities if Democrats Win

    breitbart.com ^ | 10/17/2018 | Joel Pollak
    Pelosi’s next priorities as speaker, she told Politico, would include new gun control laws, and amnesty for illegal aliens: “After that, Pelosi said, Democrats are looking at lowering drug prices and then will try to work with Republicans on a gun background check bill and protecting so-called Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children.” The article did not mention impeachment. Some Democrats are running on promises to impeach President Donald Trump — a threat that Pelosi has tried to downplay (successfully, in the case of Politico, which appeared no to ask about the idea). Others, including...

Brown's extreme views on Republicans were showcased this summer by the Free Beacon, which identified numerous inflammatory posts on social media. In one post Brown wrote, for example, "F**k reaching out to Trump voters, The idiots aren't listening."

    Campaign finance watchdog groups are planning to file a complaint with the Federal Election Commission asking it to investigate whether Montana GOP Senate nominee Matt Rosendale and the National Rifle Association were illegally coordinating in the race.The Campaign Legal Center and Giffords, the nonprofit political arm of former Rep. Gabby Giffords’s (D-Ariz.) organization, said that they’re filing the complaint on Friday or on Monday.

    The Democrat party has moved considerably to the left for the 2018 midterm elections.  As part of that strategy, they have wholeheartedly embraced gun control as a winning issue. Here is a Democrat strategist explaining their thoughts on July 6th. Opinion from usatoday.com: Since 1994, Democrats have shied away from gun safety believing that this fight is nearly impossible for Democrats to engage in and win because NRA supporters are more organized, energized and monetized. 2018 could finally be the end of 1994 Now, less than 125 days to another midterm election, the times they are a'changing. Obviously, there...

    The New Mexico gubernatorial candidate seeking a ban on “high magazine cartridges” is now campaigning on firearm confiscation orders and universal background checks. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) is making clear that gun control will be an important part of her agenda if the people of New Mexico elect her. The Albuquerque Journal reports that Lujan Grisham wants to “expand background checks to all gun purchases” and wants to put a process in place “to allow family members or law enforcement to seek temporary court orders to confiscate firearms from someone they fear may hurt themselves or others.”

    Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) is pushing to ban guns that have been illegal since the 1988 passage of the Undetectable Firearms Act. He is seeking to ban them all over again as part of the Democrat onslaught against 3D gun print files. The Miami Herald quotes Nelson saying, “Just think of the billions of dollars we spend trying to protect national security. And now, suddenly there is going to be published on the internet the plans for making a gun that can evade the detection systems in airports and seaports and all of these governmental buildings as well as some...

    Have Americans turned against the Second Amendment? “The center has shifted on this issue,” one source in Roll Call’s report tells Nathan Gonzales, but has the center really shifted on gun control? It depends on the view, apparently. Gonzales reports that a new poll shows that Democrats have the upper hand in the gun-control debate, but this might be a trap:

    FAIRFAX, Va. – The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to announce its endorsement of state Sen. Leah Vukmir in the 2018 Republican U.S. Senate Primary in Wisconsin. “Vukmir’s record demonstrates her strong support for our Second Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman, NRA-PVF. “We can count on Leah Vukmir to strongly support our Right to Keep and Bear Arms in the U.S. Senate.” Vukmir, a lifelong Wisconsinite, has earned an “A+” rating from NRA-PVF. That grade is reserved for legislators who have an excellent voting record on issues critical to NRA members...

    So much for the liberals’ lie that they’re only advocating “sensible” gun-safety regulation . . . Appearing on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show this morning, Ben Jealous, the former President of the NAACP and now Maryland Dem gubernatorial candidate, seems to suggest banning shotguns. Commenting on the deadly shooting at the Capital Gazette in Maryland, Jealous said: “We will, in the next [Maryland state] legislative session, have to have a real conversation about how we finish the job here of our assault weapons ban. But we have to go much further. Journalists were killed with a shotgun.” Get the rest of...

    A Democratic congressional candidate from the state of New Mexico, Pat Davis has found himself in the national spotlight for his viral "**** the NRA" advertisement. Davis is getting even more attention for his interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night over another one of his controversial, and false, advertisements where he claims an AR-15 can fire 150 rounds in 15 seconds. But Pat Davis' controversial gun control advertisements aren't the only controversial thing about the candidate and current Albuquerque city councilor. In 2013, while chairman of the Albuquerque Metro Crime Stoppers, Pat Davis was arrested on an...

    Here is a link to the Oregon Firearms Federation's 2018 Ratings of Oregon Candidates based on their support of the 2nd Amendment. There is a very serious threat to gun ownership in Oregon in the form of ballot initiatives 43 and 44. Initiative 43 bans any future sale or purchase of 'assault weapons'. Existing assault weapons would have to be registered with the state police. The definition of an assault weapon is so broad even a .22 semi-auto can fall under the ban. Example: The wording states any full or partial shroud meant to protect the non-trigger hand from being...

    HELENA, Mont. — It has been an iron rule for candidates in rural areas and red states for decades: Do not antagonize the National Rifle Association. But that was before the massacre at a high school in Parkland, Fla., galvanized gun politics across the country. Now, a striking number of Democratic candidates in coming midterm elections, from congressional contests in the Rocky Mountains to governor’s races in the Deep South, are openly daring, defying and disparaging the N.R.A., a group with deep pockets, a loyal membership and a record of Election Day score-settling. Those Democrats, but also a few Republicans,...

    Big League Politics ^ | 03/14/2018 | Wall Crane
    In the most astonishingly bone-headed move since nominating Mitt Romney for President, the GOP establishment spent major cash to help elect Democrat Conor Lamb in last night’s highly contested PA-18 special election. Yes, you read that right. Failed Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan and his Congressional Leadership Fund pushed a Democrat to victory over a Republican with direct mail advertising touting support “for our Second Amendment Rights.” I’ll repeat that again. A so-called GOP PAC led by Paul Ryan spent thousands of dollars in a direct mail campaign to convince voters that Conor Lamb was a conservative who would protect...

    Giving an interview at the SXSW conference in Austin Texas over the weekend, the Democratic nominee opposing Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said American civilians should not be permitted to buy an AR-15 rifle. El Paso Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, is proud of his campaign’s claim that he shuns political action committee (PAC) money. He criticized Senator Cruz for taking $300,000 from the National Rifle Association and boasted that his campaign has taken $0 from the NRA. He told a story about a woman at a town hall who asked him if he could stand up to the NRA. O’Rourke explained...

    Backed by a coalition of gun control groups, Phil Murphy won his race in New Jersey while Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam came out ahead in Virginia’s gubernatorial race. Murphy, who will replace Republican Gov. Chris Christie in the Garden State and has pledged to get “tough on gun violence,” beat out his Republican rival, Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno. In Virginia, Northam, who had President Obama talk gun politics on his behalf, bested Republican Ed Gillespie in a narrow finish. “Make no mistake: Gun violence prevention was on the ballot today and, despite the NRA spending millions, voters in Virginia and...
