    Doctor Gun Banners A recent headline at The Hill read "Dems push to end ban on gun violence research". The only problem is that there is no ban on "gun violence" research. There is a ban on spending federal dollars, by the Department of Health and Human Services, on research that advocates for more gun control. It is called the Dickey Amendment, and was put in place after the leaders of the CDC proclaimed what they expected from research results (advocating for more gun control) before the research was conducted. The CDC had already funded severely flawed, advocacy "research" to...

    Whats even more American than turkey, cranberries and pumpkin pie these days? An Italian gun, thats what. The only known surviving firearm that crossed the wild Atlantic aboard the good ship Mayflower, settled with the pilgrims at Plymouth Colony and ultimately helped the first colonists not only survive, but prosper. Meet the Mayflower Gun. The GunAffectionately dubbed the Mayflower Gun and thought of as an American icon, the gun is actually an Italian-made wheel-lock carbine. This single-shot musket was originally chambered in .50 caliber rifle, though ages of heavy use have worn away the majority of the rifling. Given...

    What might have happened if a few of the 1,500 concert attendees in Paris' Bataclan theater had guns? The terrorists had time to kill, reload and kill again. The police unit didn't come for more than a half hour. If a few people in the theater were armed, might they have killed the killers? We'll never know. France's guns laws say you may not carry a gun unless police certify that you are "exposed to exceptional risks of harm" to your life. Few people even bother to apply. Fortunately, in America, laws in every state now allow adults to carry...

    Have heard this three times in the past half hour. Female host asks, "how did these guys get assault weapons in France? France is not the United States where assault weapons are easy to come by". Later expert said "this is the fear of American officials- hitting soft targets in this country when guns are so easy to come by." Moments ago said "police in this country are not prepared to blunt an attack such as this considering how easy guns are to obtain." Second expert claims "refugee's fleeing this same violence- just a few cases of refugee's causing problems".

It came through the war room. We worked on it, and we decided to target this particular area based on the violence happening there this past summer," said Don Hibbert, with the DEA. Authorities said the investigation determined some of...

    If you have not heard of Gavin Newsom, know that he is currently the Lt. Governor of California and he aims to take over the governor's job from Jerry Brown in 2018. His path was cleared when Kamala Harris decided to move to Washington and take over Barbara Boxer's U.S. Senate seat. Mr. Newsom announced he will be sponsoring a statewide initiative to further strengthen the gun laws in California, which are already the toughest in the nation. (Note: I am neither a gun owner nor member of the NRA. Also, I have read the initiative and interviewed the organization...

    A Democratic-proposed gun ban would prohibit some of the most highly-rated hunting rifles and shotguns, ban most pistols, and require Wisconsin residents who owned so-called “semiautomatic assault weapons” to turn their guns in to the government. State Rep. Lisa Subeck and three other Democratic state lawmakers are proposing a sweeping ban on rifles, shotguns and pistols they deem dangerous because they are “designed to kill large numbers of people quickly.” Legislative attorneys – known as Legislative Counsel – confirmed to state Rep. Dave Craig (R) that the loosely written ban does not contain a grandfather clause, meaning owners of prohibited...

    ( - "Drug overdose deaths are the leading cause of injury death in the United States, ahead of motor vehicle deaths and firearms (deaths)," the Drug Enforcement Agency announced on Wednesday. In 2013, the most recent year for which data is available, 46,471 people in the United States died from drug overdoses, and more than half of those deaths were caused by prescription painkillers and heroin. That compares with the 35,369 who died in motor vehicle crashes and 33,636 who died from firearms, as tallied by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Sadly this report confirms what we’ve...

    The libertine left has done a lot of boasting over the last several years about the inevitability of History vanquishing every corner of American social conservatism. Election Day 2015 was a terrible day for these revolutionaries, as so often it is when it's the American people, not liberal elites, making the decisions. Let's assess the damage: -- In Kentucky, incoming Republican governor Matt Bevin won despite proudly embracing the cause of country clerk Kim Davis, a clear rebuke to the cultural let's agenda to impose gay "marriage" on every conservative Christian jurisdiction. -- In Virginia, two GOP state senate candidates...

    Colion Noir calls out The Huffington Post for their recent factually inaccurate, deliberately inflammatory anti-NRA hit piece. The article, which can be read here ( , claims Wayne LaPierre's video "How To Stop Violent Crime" inaccurately identifies De'Eris Brown, a thug who murdered a 9-year-old girl, and uses this to promote an "NRA is racist" narrative. Not only was this claim patently false, but it exposed writer Mike Weisser's own bigotry and bias in the process.
