    Authorities have seized more than 550 guns at two Southern California homes and made one arrest after getting a tip that a convicted felon was storing an arsenal. ..."Detectives also seized computers, cellphones, and hard drives from the residence believed to be involved in the illicit purchase of firearms by the suspect," the sheriff's department said in its release.
  • 'Never Again!' Belongs to the Holocaust— Not an Anti-gun Rights Book and Campaign

    I am a Holocaust concentration camp survivor. I am one of a rapidly dwindling number of eyewitnesses to the Nazi Holocaust, the most systematic genocide of all time. Today, misinformed students cynically led by progressives are using that event and its rallying call to confiscate guns and turn them over to government—the exact opposite of the core lessons to be learned. This is so fundamentally wrong no justification can excuse it. Naming a book Never Again!—which is a desperate call to arms—to address drug-addled, video-mesmerized, psychotic, murderous classmates —misappropriates and reverses the central messages and lessons of the Holocaust.

    On Tuesday's Good Morning America, fill-in anchor David Muir held a sympathetic sit-down with Parkland activist David Hogg and his sister Lauren to promote their anti-gun activism movement called #NeverAgain. Muir pretended that Hogg had never been nasty to people who disagreed with him politically, and actually asked him what lessons he could share about how to deal with critics, with fellow young people. The short interview started with Muir getting straight to the point, asking Hogg how he’d respond to his critics “who believe” that he’s infringing on their Second Amendment rights. Muir even asked how he'd be the...

    Yeh, I think most gun enthusiasts understand how powerful both these handguns are. For the non-gun educated, the term .357 magnum itself is enough to bring fear into their minds. Both the Glock 10mm and the .357 magnum are serious personal defense calibers. Which caliber is best against real muscles or something that simulates it? YouTuber mark3smle tests this out by demonstrating which caliber is capable of against a ballistic gel. Ballistic gelatin is a testing medium scientifically correlated to swine muscle tissue (which in turn is comparable to human muscle tissue), in which the effects of bullet wounds can...

    Lawmakers would bring students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to Capitol Hill for the summer. Student survivors of gun violence descended on Washington en masse earlier this year during the massive March for Our Lives on March 24. Now some lawmakers would like to bring them back for an entire summer. House Democrats are inviting students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida — who survived a mass school shooting in February — to come intern in their offices, working on gun violence prevention....

    Two children stood outside a home within the crime scene where four people were shot in the Little Village neighborhood on the West Side Sunday night. They watched police shine flashlights across the sidewalk, and place evidence markers near shell casings. The children caught Annette Hernandez’s eye as she walked by the scene in the 2200 block of South Sacramento Avenue. “You see, there are kids running around,” Hernandez said. “Every night, it’s the same stuff.” The four were standing on the street around 9:30 p.m. when a male shooter approached on foot and began firing, critically injuring a 21-year-old...

    Frontpagemagazine ^ | June 18, 2018 | Lloyd Billingsley
    Unlike Americans, Germans had no legal right to keep and bear arms and the liberal Weimar Republic sought to register, regulate and prohibit firearms. When Hitler’s National Socialist (Nazi) Party took power, they used those records to disarm and oppress the people, and that is why there was no armed resistance movement in Germany.  That is the story of Stephen Halbrook’s masterful 2013 Gun Control in the Third Reich: Disarming the Jews and “Enemies of the State.”  Halbrook’s new book, Gun Control in Nazi-Occupied France: Tyranny and Resistance, charts the same process in occupied France. As he notes, of...

His dog, a Chesapeake-Lab mix, was with them. They were heading to some rock formations. Noah was carrying his 460V Smith & Wesson revolver. Two other men in the party were carrying bear spray.  The two men with bear spray had fallen 50 yards behind. The dog alerted on something. Noah thought it was some sort of big animal. Then he saw the bears, a grizzly sow...

    Delta Airlines and Bank of America pulled out of their sponsorship of New York’s Public Theater on Sunday over a production of “Julius Caesar” that re imagines the main character as President Trump. Shortly after Delta, who was a four-year sponsor, made its announcement, Bank of America yanked its support as well. The Shakespeare in the Park play tells the story of the leader assassinated by Roman senators over the fear that he’s becoming too tyrannical, but rather than the original setting, the production stages Caesar (Gregg Henry) and his wife, Calpurnia, (Tina Benko) with Donald and Melania Trump lookalikes....

    Several would-be robbers got an impromptu lesson in the Second Amendment outside a supermarket in suburban Atlanta, all thanks to the fact that they messed with the wrong couple. According to WSB-TV, the men were shot after approaching a couple outside of a Kroger in Decatur, Georgia, on Friday. Details are still sketchy, but police say the men followed the pair out of the store just after 4 p.m. and tried a robbery of some sort. That’s when one of the targets pulled out a gun and shot the men. “It was chaos,” one witness said. “I saw the guy...
