    Attorney General David Parker had told a crowd at a vigil Saturday that a key part of the government's response was to ban semi-automatic weapons, a step further than Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern had called for in the wake of the attacks. But Parker told Radio New Zealand on Saturday that the government has yet to make any decision on what changes to gun ownership policies, if any, would look like. "We need to ban some semi-automatics, perhaps all of them. Those decisions have yet to be taken, but the prime minister has signaled that we are going to look...

    “A public debate on the merits of a measure can reveal its flaws,” the Bismarck Tribune calmly and reasonably editorialized recently, adding, “and then we have to trust voters to do the right thing.”“Why are some legislators so afraid to allow North Dakota voters to decide what is in their constitution?” asked an earlier editorial in the Fargo Forum. Legislation to make citizen petitions far more difficult abounds in North Dakota, this being the winter of legislators’ discontent, because the mighty solons did not like an ethics measure that voters nevertheless passed in a close contest last fall. Personally, I would have...

    FULL TITLE: Rush Limbaugh: Was New Zealand Shooter a Leftist Trying to Smear Conservatives? The Left Is This Insane Rush Limbaugh commented on Friday that the New Zealand killer may have been a far-left nut who committed his murders to frame conservatives! Rush posed the question. From the Rush Limbaugh website: Mr. Snerdley, correct me if Im wrong about this theres an ongoing theory that the shooter himself may in fact be a leftist who writes the manifesto and then goes out and performs the deed purposely to smear his political enemies, knowing hes gonna get shot in the...

    Time and again, we hear from those advocating for more gun control laws who intone with a sense of moral superiority that we need to have a conversation on guns. The goal, they say, is to reduce violence, suggesting that they are somehow more evolved.Yet, just this week, some anti-gun activists and politicians were caught red-handed fantasizing about wanting to shoot politicians and gun rights advocates as well as suggesting the doxing, or publicly posting private information, on gun owners.In one instance, a woman attending the Connecticut General Assemblys Joint Committee on the Judiciary hearing on several gun control bills,...

    Since this terrible tragedy was broadcast live on Face Book then I believe that we should refer to it as such. The MSM and the left is already trying to tie Trump to it. Some people will remember when the left went after Gab and made their host And all main stream financial services drop them. Because A shooter just happened to post on Gab. Well conservatives, this is you chance to turn the tables. Always swap out "Christ Church" With "Face book". This is the Face Book Massacre. This was a Face book shooting.

    As one can see from many of the overnight posts on the internet, our fifth column was busy, trying to remind us that "everybody does it," "both sides do it," in reference to the murders in New Zealand. And I have no doubt that during the day, here and elsewhere, the Demos, primitives, and other appeasers and virtue signallers are going to continually refrain this, "everybody does it," "both sides do it." Which of course is nonsense. The murder of forty people from the other side is not the same as the all those whose lives have been taken from...

    A BRITISH gunman who is believed to have filmed himself slaughtering Muslims in a New Zealand mosque wrote a chilling manifesto before the terrorist attack. The white-supremacist shooter, 28, who was born in Australia, said he wanted to take revenge for the "thousands of European lives lost to terror attacks". He boasted that he chose to use firearms so he could influence politics in the US. Finally, to create conflict between the two ideologies within the United States on the ownership of firearms in order to further the social, cultural, political and racial divide within the United states," he wrote....

    Tory MP Scott Mann has attracted mockery on social media after calling for strict new knife control measures including for every blade sold in the UK to be fitted with GPS tracking systems. In a post on the micro-blogging platform Twitter, the representative for North Cornwall went on to declare that Britain should create a national database of people who own knives, like we do with guns. Anyone found to have carried a knife outside their property had better have a bloody good explanation, Mr Mann wrote, adding that there could be obvious exceptions for activities such as fishing.

    (CNSNews.com) -- Democratic Congress members reintroduced the Ammunition Background Check Act on Wednesday, legislation that would require people to undergo an instant, universal background check through the federal NICS databaseeverytime they purchase gun ammunition. The lead sponsors of the bill are Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.). The proposal is known as 'Jaime's Law," in honor of Jaime Guttenberg, one of the 17 victims of the shooting at the Marjory Stonemen Douglas High School in February 2018. "Ammunition sales should be subject to the same legal requirements that should govern firearm sales: universal background checks," said...

    Is more gun control legislation coming to Congress?The 2018 midterm elections produced a split Congress with Democrats gaining control of the House and Republicans gaining seats in the Senate.The change in House leadership will signal changes in gun control legislation in the near future. The Guardian has detailed House Democrats desire to pass gun control legislation in the upcoming Congress: Ted Deutch, a Democratic congressman from Florida who represents Parkland, where a February school shooting left 17 dead, said this week that he expected House Democrats to focus on bills with more bipartisan support. Those measures included bump stock bans...

    Washington, DC – -(AmmoLand.com)- It’s been said quite often that Republicans are the “Stupid Party.”Well, the party of stupid has struck again, and “Exhibit A” is the Republican Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee — Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.Based on what Graham is doing, one would think he’s planning to forfeit control of the Senate to the Democrats and to lose the White House in 2020. Because he is holding a hearing to promote the nastiest form of Bloomberg-sponsored gun control.As it turns out, Graham and his new “best buddy,” anti-gun zealot Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), are scheduling...

    The Washington Times ^ | March 14, 2019 | David Sherfinski
    The Connecticut Supreme Court on Thursday said a lawsuit challenging how Remington marketed the rifle used in the December 2012 Newtown school shooting can proceed, overturning a lower courts outright dismissal of the case. In a 4-3 opinion, the court narrowly ruled that families of victims of the Newtown school shooting can challenge whether Remington violated trade practices in how it marketed the AR-15-style rifle used in the shooting. The regulation of advertising that threatens the publics health, safety, and morals has long been considered a core exercise of the states police powers, Justice Richard Palmer wrote for the majority....

    Took some friends who had never been to Death Valley on a tour there yesterday. Came out of the park and stayed in Pahrump, Nevada last night. Found out these friends had never been to the Hoover Dam, nor the walkway across the Pat Tillman/Mike O'Callaghan Memorial Bridge. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_O%27Callaghan%E2%80%93Pat_Tillman_Memorial_Bridge This bridge crosses the Colorado River Gorge just south of the dam. I've been there several times. You stop at what is essentially a roadside rest area and hike up a walk and cross the bridge on foot. At the Arizona /Nevada border, you are exactly above center of the Colorado...

    Had they only been armed to the teeth and determined to resist against government tyranny as is their God-given right, the Jews would never have been loaded meekly onto those Holocaust trains by the German government. The masses of Ukrainian and Russian peasant farmers would never have been starved to death by the Russian government. The Armenian Genocide could have been avoided. The Killing Fields of Cambodia would not have happened. And, had the blacks been armed to the teeth against government tyranny and determined to resist, there would have been no slaves in America. Think about that before allowing...

    The National Sentinal ^ | march 11, 2019 | J. D. Heyes
    As reported by The Free Thought Project, lawmakers in Texas have introduced a gun sanctuary bill that would apply to the entire state. If it passes, it would essentially nullify nearly all federal gun control laws within the state: Sen. Bob Hall (R-Edgewood) filed Senate Bill 378 (SB378) on January 17. The bill would prohibit any state government agency, personnel or public funds from enforcing any federal gun control regulation or law if the federal statute, order, rule, or regulation or international law imposes a prohibition, restriction, or other regulation, such as a capacity, size, or configuration limitation, that does...
  • The BIG LIST Of Ideas That Is Trumps Reelection Path

    If President Trump hibernated for the next 20 months hed likely win reelection in a landslide. Of course it is not in his nature to do anything remotely like that, but that is how radical the Democratic Party has become in really just the past year. Yes, it has been trending this direction for a long time. But Bill Clinton was nominated and elected in 1992 based on his promise to take the Democratic Party back to the center. Since that time, however, it has moved much further to the left. In the past year, however, it has jumped to...

    Before every election, both parties try to figure out what states they are competitive in and they begin to work on a budget. The same holds true for PACs, who often has more money than the party. Priorities USA, an influential left-leaning political action committee, helped former President Barack Obama win re-election in 2012. They also worked for Hillary in 2016. They have surveyed the political landscape and have decided that Ohio is a low priority. In political speak, that means its not worth the money. That figures, the Democrats are keying on Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Michigan. From The...

    Today Governor DeWine signed into law House Bill 86, sponsored by Representative Phil Plummer (R-Dayton). This emergency legislation corrects a drafting error by the Legislative Services Commission (LSC) in the passed version of HB 228 at the end of the last legislative session. It clarifies contradictory language on firearms, specifically what is and what is not dangerous ordnance. HB 86 contains an emergency clause. This means the confusing language from HB 228 is corrected immediately upon the bill taking effect on March 28, 2019. No firearms were ever banned as a result of this swift action by the Ohio General...
