    Many human activities were curtailed in America during Memorial Day weekend due to the Wuhan coronavirus. However, murder in Baltimore, Chicago, and Washington D.C. weren’t among them. In Baltimore, there were eight killings over the weekend, even though residents were under orders to stay home due to the pandemic. Four additional people were injured in the shootings. According to police, several of the victims had previously been convicted of attempted murder. In a properly functioning justice system, these victims would have been incarcerated. Chicago topped Baltimore. It suffered nine killings, with 27 more wounded, over the weekend. This was Chicago’s...

    Left-wing pop icon Madonna on Wednesday lambasted all police in the wake of continued protests in Minneapolis in response to the death of George Floyd. “Watching this Cop suffocate George Floyd with his knee on his neck, handcuffed and helpless, crying for his life with his face in the street is the most sickening, heartbreaking thing ive seen in a long time. This Officer knew he was being filmed and murdered him with arrogance and Pride. This has to stop!!” Madonna wrote in an Instagram post.

    "They're afraid the police aren't going to be able to protect them and they're going to be overrun," Cummins says. "And we've seen a lot of first-time (gun owners) and people who have no experience with a firearm." He believes the rise in sales is not from those fearing a crackdown by a new administration in Washington, because most gun owners he's talked to believe President Donald Trump will easily win re-election.

    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....

    Chaos erupted in Minneapolis Wednesday night, with people looting and rioting following the death of George Lloyd, a black man who was killed by a white police officer. Two men decided to utilize their Second Amendment rights to prevent people from looting nearby stores. "Basically, you've seen the records the cops keep and the cops are a lot less likely to tread on people's rights when there's other armed Americans with them. So we figured it's about damn time – or at least I figure it's about damn time – for some heavily armed rednecks stood with fellow citizens," the...

    For the second night in a row, peaceful protests over the in-custody death of George Floyd quickly turned violent Wednesday night, with multiple building structures set ablaze, widespread looting, and continued rioting. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey requested Minnesota Governor Tim Walz to deploy the Minnesota National Guard following the social unrest. Demonstrators torched multiple building structures, including an apartment complex and surrounding buildings, an AutoZone, and other retail stores. At least a dozen stores were looted and or damaged. “That’s like five buildings on fire,” one demonstrator said while talking to Unicorn Riot News. Another horrifying moment came when...

    Crime scene techs with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation returned Wednesday to the neighborhood where Ahmaud Arbery was gunned down while out jogging. Channel 2 investigative reporter Mark Winne went down to Glynn County, where GBI investigators also met with the FBI. Following that meeting, Winne spoke with the GBI’s head investigator who gave him new insight into the case. “The arrests are only a part of the investigation. There’s a lot more work to be done. A lot of work has been done,” said Scott Dutton, head of the GBI’s investigative division. “(We’re doing a) reexamination of the crime...

    The Oklahoma legislature passed SB 1081 on 15 May, the last day of the legislative session.  It was one of the last bills passed in 2020 before the legislature adjourned. It appears to be the first anti-red flag law passed by any legislature. The legislature passed the bill, had it signed, enrolled, returned to the House, signed, returned to the Senate, and sent to the Governor, all on the same day.A legislature can act quickly, when there is sufficient will to do so. The anti-red flag bill was introduced in 2019, by Senator Nathan Dahm. Dahm wrote an op-ed, published...

    Hillary Clinton says “domestic terrorism” has come to America via armed and angry quarantine protesters in Michigan. The former secretary of state blasted citizens who showed up outside the state’s capital building this week to protest Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which has claimed the lives of roughly 87,000 Americans nationwide. “Armed men storming a legislature to disrupt its democratic proceedings is domestic terrorism,” Mrs. Clinton wrote. “It cannot be tolerated.”

    Blast from the Past - A 20th Century Pocket Gun that was ahead of its Time - At the beginning of the 20th century semi-automatic magazine fed pistols were a novel concept. However, this era gave us the iconic M1911 and the German Luger just to name a few. There were many others that popped up into the scene but were left behind as time went by. One pistol that was forgotten but had a really good design was the Remington Model 51 which was developed during the prohibition era of the United States. At this time John Browning may...

    Attorney General Becerra grabs guns, Gov. Newsom deploys “trace force” of 20,000. “Gun violence is the last thing our communities and children should have to fear during a public health crisis. Background checks can save lives and DOJ’s firearms operations help make that happen. At the California Department of Justice, we’ll keep doing our part to keep firearms out of the hands of violent and dangerous individuals.” That was California attorney general Xavier Becerra last week, but his announcement failed to cite any example of actual “gun violence.” The former congressman, once on Hillary Clinton’s short list as a running...

    Preemption law reform is moving in Louisiana and becomes effective in West Virginia at the end of May. As with nearly all states, Louisiana has a statute that preempts local governments from enacting ordinances or regulations which are in conflict with state laws regarding firearms. The idea is that firearms laws should be uniform statewide, so that people exercising their right to keep and bear arms will not be in violation of the law simply by crossing a street from one municipality to another, or one county to another. Some states have rigorous preemption laws, other states have minimal laws.HB...

A Facebook post shared by the abortion abolitionist group Free the States showed a man holding a gun, claiming he was angry that sidewalk counselors pleaded for him to save his baby. “This young man brandished a firearm and pointed it at the sidewalk counselors/evangelists gathered outside of the abortion mill where he recently took his child to be murdered,” the post read. “He threatened to shoot them if they kept on preaching the Gospel.” While the photo does...
