  • Toomey Crosses Gun-Rights Divide In Pennsylvania Senate Race

    CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) — Freshman U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey is the rare conservative Republican who is running for re-election with the support of leading gun-control groups, but it may not be enough to save him in Democratic-leaning Pennsylvania in this unusual election year....His stance so angered one gun-rights group that it is backing his Democratic opponent, Katie McGinty, just to send a message to Toomey and any other Republican who might deviate from orthodoxy on guns.

    Hillary Clinton has—for better or worst—decided to run as the first major party candidate in the history of the United States to make hollowing out core constitutional rights a key plank in her presidential platform. Clinton’s public views on the human right to bear arms have not just shifted radically to a statist bent; she has also made that desire to attack this core right one of the driving focuses of her 2016 campaign. And while 1/3 of the firearms in this nation joined the market within less than a decade, much to the alarm and disgust of gun control...

    Gunsmiths around the country say they were blindsided by President Obama’s latest executive order that would make their trade qualify as manufacturing and therefore eligible for all the mandated regulations and fees that go along with that classification. “When you have expanded the definition of manufacturing to include enhancements and the function of the weapon, you are basically opening the door to everything you do would make you a manufacturer,” Iowa gunsmith Mike Ware told The Daily Caller. The president’s executive order, which Obama signed on July 22 — around the beginning of the Democratic National Convention — conveys to...

    Donald J. Trump’s candidacy has driven away throngs of Republican elected officials, donors and policy experts. But not the National Rifle Association. With Mr. Trump increasingly isolated and hobbled by controversies of his own making, the powerful gun-rights group has emerged as one of his remaining stalwart allies in the Republican coalition: the institution on the right most aggressively committed to his candidacy, except for the Republican National Committee itself. The association has spent millions of dollars on television commercials for Mr. Trump, even as other Republican groups have kept their checkbooks closed and Mr. Trump’s campaign has not run...

Trump spent much of his speech criticizing Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton’s political positions, specifically her stance on the Second Amendment. This criticism led to a discussion about the potential Supreme Court justices Clinton might appoint if she were elected. Trump made the following comment that has led to, yet another, a media blitzkrieg: “Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish, the Second Amendment. By the way, and if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people,...

    Hillary Clinton on Wednesday tried to reassure skeptical gun owners that she’s not interested in rolling back Second Amendment rights or hatching a scheme to take Americans’ firearms. Speaking just outside Denver, Colorado, Mrs. Clinton again said she’ll make gun control legislation a top priority of her administration, vowing to fight the “gun lobby” and enact stricter rules, such as expanded background checks. But in fighting for votes across rural America, where gun rights remain a key issue, the former first lady also must tread carefully. The National Rifle Association already has endorsed her opponent, Republican Donald Trump, and many...

But it didn’t stop her from denying Donald Trump’s claim that she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. Clinton accused Trump of making “outright fabrications, accusing me of something that is absolutely untrue.” From changing the Supreme Court to make it possible to again ban guns in the United States to making it more costly to own guns, I predict that a President Hillary Clinton will do four things to either ban guns or at least reduce...

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has remained consistent in her support of gun control. According to her website (hillaryclinton.com), if elected, Clinton will "strengthen background check and close dangerous loopholes in the current system, hold irresponsible dealers and manufacturers...

"Hillary wants to disarm vulnerable Americans in high-crime neighborhoods. Whether it's a young, single mom in Florida or a grandmother in Ohio, Hillary wants them to be defenseless," the billionaire told thousands of gun...

As it turns out, she's not talking about civilian deaths from drone strikes or bombing raids on hospitals by the U.S. government, but instead about a criminal shooting spree in the United States. Sure enough, the Washington Post pointed out last week that one of Clinton's signature issues heading into the general election is tightening restrictions on the ownership and use of guns by Americans. That's a tall order in a country...

I will protect our Second Amendment. I will protect our country.” Showcasing his knack for nicknames and speaking in his characteristic vernacular, Trump drew...

    There’s been a lot of Monday-morning quarterbacking about how firearm violence prevention played in Virginia elections this year. Let’s look at the two state Senate races where the issue played a central role: Senate District 10 in the Richmond area and Senate District 29 in Prince William County. In both races, gun safety was either the winning factor or helped tighten a race in a previously non-competitive GOP-held district. First, polling in and outside of Virginia shows more than 85 percent of Americans support common-sense firearms-violence prevention rules such as universal background checks or keeping firearms out of the hands...

    The governor’s race in Kentucky may have given the GOP its most satisfying victory of Election Night 2015, but the maintenance of the status quo in Virginia may be the most meaningful. Outside groups poured into the Commonwealth in an attempt to gain Democratic governor Terry McAuliffe more leverage, including the SEIU and Michael Bloomberg’s gun-control activists, who spent more than $2 million on statehouse races. They came up empty, and in the process called into serious question the direction of the Democratic Party and the strategy of its presidential frontrunner: Republicans held onto the Virginia Senate in fiercely contested...

    The Democrat Party is going to lose the 2016 elections in a landslide, and they can thank their radical anti-gun agenda for that loss. Bernie Sanders has boldly stated that “semi-automatic assault weapons” should be banned, along with standard-capacity magazines. The completely arbitrary definition of “assault weapons” defined by anti-gun politicians is always based upon superficial cosmetic features—flash hiders, barrel shrouds, bayonet lugs, telescoping stocks and/or pistol grips—that have nothing at all to due with the rate of fire, accuracy, or lethality of a given firearm. If he really wants to ban “semi-automatic assault weapons,” he’s going to have to...

    You win the presidency, Richard Nixon supposedly observed, by tacking to the right in the primaries and to the center in the general election. Hillary Clinton seems to be following that strategy except, as a Democrat, she is tacking to the left. This strategy has risks, as Nixon, who lost the presidency once and won it once by narrow margins, understood. Your right- or left-wing stances in the primaries can hurt in the general. As happened to George McGovern, the leftward-tacking Democratic nominee in 1972, whom Nixon beat with 61 percent of the vote. In the four decades since only...

    HOUSTON, Texas — Yesterday, Gun Owners of America, a premier Second Amendment and gun-rights advocacy organization, endorsed U.S. Senator Ted Cruz for President.

    WATERLOO, Iowa — Campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination Saturday, Gov. Chris Christie said he'll likely pardon several out-of-staters legally permitted to carry their firearms in their home states who have been recently arrested in New Jersey under the Garden State's tough gun laws.

She could face a ten year prison sentence because her Florida state-issued permit to carry a handgun is not recognized by New...

    Some conservatives are criticizing what they say is a media double standard after The Associated Press ran a photo of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) with the picture of a gun in the background pointing directly at his head.

 “Imagine the outcry were he a Democrat,” said an editorial at the conservative news website Breitbart. “How many think pieces about violent imagery and responsible reporting would we see? How many more if he were a woman? Keep this in mind for the 2016 campaign. This is the playing field.”
