  • PIERS MORGAN: You're not fit to light Churchill's cigar, Mr President so listen to Meghan Markle and stop dividing and start uniting a country crying out in pain (ultimate barf alert)

    UK Daily Mail ^ | June 04 2020 | PIERS MORGAN
    A year ago, I interviewed President Trump in the Churchill War Rooms in London. To mark the occasion, I presented him with a replica black Lock & Co hat of the type Churchill loved to wear. Trump was delighted, and immediately tried the hat on. Then he said perhaps the only self-deprecating remark he's ever uttered: 'I think Winston looked much better in it..'

    Saturday, was a great day. With friends and family we celebrated my wife’s birthday. it was a delight to be amongst loved ones after 10 weeks of isolation. On Sunday, my wife and I were standing in line at a local gun shop to buy our first gun. What a difference a day makes. I never have been anti-gun. Dad owned a British Enfield, my brother and I tagged along when he went shooting. I had also kept a Browning Superposed for many years for a friend, who lost his way. It was a pleasure to return his father’s gun...

    The latest to try it is the ever-annoying Fred Guttenberg. The father of a mass shooting victim and two gun safety groups petitioned the federal government on Sunday to stop the firearms manufacturer Smith & Wesson from using what they described as “deceptive and unfair” marketing to promote assault-style rifles. The father, Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter, Jaime, died in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre in Parkland, Fla., joined with the advocacy groups Brady and Everytown for Gun Safety to send a complaint to the Federal Trade Commission. As part of the complaint, Mr. Guttenberg and the gun...
  • Gov. Northam Can’t Help Himself, Picks Gun Control Over Virus Control

    The Federalist ^ | June 1, 2020 | Lawrence Keane
    Gun control legislation has been all the rage in Richmond since Democrats took over the Virginia General Assembly last November. The Democratic majority teamed with Gov. Ralph Northam in their ambitious efforts to cross items off the gun control checklist, such as enacting a “red flag” law, banning private firearm transfers, reviving a handgun purchase limit, and even implementing a modern sporting rifle ban that was thankfully defeated in committee — for now. It should come as no surprise, then, that the governor who wouldn’t let his past use of blackface stop his political pandering would also not let a...

    Back during the Hurricane Katrina disaster, I saw a news report of citizens protecting themselves from bad guys. I can also recall similar scenes during the L.A. riots of 1992. In both instances, we saw the wisdom of allowing people to defend themselves, their families, and their property. History repeats itself, and the 2nd Amendment is alive and well, perhaps more than ever. What happens when the mayor prefers to lecture the world on racism rather than defend his constituents? The answer is that the public has to defend itself, as we see in this story: After four long nights...

    Gun sales surged in May as shops reported an uptick in interest and demand amid national protests after the Memorial Day killing of George Floyd and as the COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc and stoke fear across the country. “Almost, you couldn’t even keep up with it. That’s how crazy it was,” said Joe Hawk, owner of Guns & Roses in New Jersey. “After Memorial Day, it spiked again. It just went crazy again.” Small Arms Analytics & Forecasting, a private research firm, estimated that more than 1.7 million guns were sold in May, an 80% jump from May 2019. “Yet...

Gunmakers American Outdoor Brands and Sturm, Ruger & Co., ammunition maker Vista Outdoor and police body cam and Taser stun gun maker Axon Enterprise were all trading sharply higher as investors priced in the possibility the violence could propel already surging sales. Americans flocked to gun stores as states began issuing stay-at-home orders to slow the spread of COVID-19 amid concerns the stores would be deemed nonessential and forced to temporarily close their doors.

    The country's largest and best known gun rights association, the NRA, is losing board members amid a spate of deadly mass shootings. But another, lesser-known gun organization is thriving: the National African American Gun Association, the largest minority gun group in the country. The group was founded by Phillip Smith, who fondly remembers the first time he fired his 9 mm pistol at a gun range. "I felt free," Smith said. "I had a chance to kind of have some power in my hands." Smith formed the first chapter of the National African American Gun Association, or NAAGA, in Atlanta....

This Officer knew he was being filmed and murdered him with arrogance and Pride. This has to stop!!” Madonna wrote in an Instagram post.

    David Hogg, a Parkland shooting survivor-turned-gun control activist, compared law enforcement and officials in President Trump's administration to fascists, saying his grandfather fought with antifa against similar forces during World War II. Hogg, who has been highly critical of the Trump administration, suggested the president called his grandfather and other veterans "terrorists" when Trump said the United States would designate antifa a terrorist organization. "My grandpa was part of the Antifa forces in WWII sad Donald Trump has labeled him and his fellow vets as terrorists," Hogg tweeted. Trump has blamed the left-wing antifa movement for violent demonstrations across the...

    ....So, we have a truly diverse, when it comes to ancestry, history of domestic street mob violence. Through our first 200 years as a nation, it may be that people who felt unrepresented by the results at the ballot box eventually turned to street violence. It appears, however, that the class makeup has shifted, starting with the late 1960s radical college student movement. Instead of poor and working-class men alone, it appears that there has been a shift towards people with more resources, including more ability to network, coordinate, and travel greater distances in support of street violence and threats....
  • They can’t arrest us all, so they will bankrupt us – Inslee’s plan to suppress “insubordination” By Glen Morgan -May 27, 2020

    It is no secret that Washington State Governor Inslee is deeply offended by the fact that so many Washingtonians refuse to blindly obey his emergency proclamations. He has complained about his “insubordinate” subjects to the tame media. Reportedly, he has been enraged when local sheriffs have refused to arrest anyone who defy his random orders and dictates (approved by no elected body in this state), and this is why the Snohomish County Sheriff is facing a recall election effort mostly from Inslee supporters right now. Some observers are speculating that this move by Inslee’s politicized followers at L&I is an...

    BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today said that if state agencies and officials around the country that are responsible for issuing concealed carry licenses or permits are not taking new applications because of the COVID-19 outbreak, they should not arrest people for carrying without a license/permit. “We’ve received reports that some agencies are using the coronavirus outbreak as an excuse for suspending the concealed carry application process,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “The constitution wasn’t put on hold because of the coronavirus.” SAF has been involved in several legal actions across the country...

    On April 5, 2019, three days after New Zealand's Arms Amendment Act 2019 advanced from its first reading in parliament, NRA-ILA noted that: “[g]iven the abundant research on Australia’s similar gun confiscation efforts, New Zealand officials can expect that their gun control measures will do little more than trample the natural rights of gun owners​…” This week the first evidence vindicating this position came in when Radio New Zealand (RNZ) published figures it had obtained from the government showing that for last year crime involving firearms was the highest it had been since 2009. Moreover, as noted in the April...

    Hertz, which started with a fleet of a dozen Ford Model T’s a century ago and became one of the world’s largest car rental companies, filed for bankruptcy protection on Friday after falling victim to its mountain of debt. The coronavirus pandemic has devastated Hertz by grounding business travelers and tourists, making it impossible for the company to continue paying its lenders. A sharp drop in used car prices has also decreased the value of its fleet. “They were doing quite well, but when you turn off the revenues and you own all these cars and all of a sudden...
