    A Pennsylvania school director resigned Wednesday amid backlash over a Facebook post that said she would “shoot” anyone who came within 6 feet of her without a face mask on. Selinsgrove school director Jennifer Rager-Kay, a physician who last year unsuccessfully ran as a Democrat for Rep. Fred Keller’s state House seat, came under fire Monday after she posted a rant against anti-lockdown protesters that gathered last week in Harrisburg. “I find it interesting that the largest group of those protesting in the anti-lockdown protest and refusing to wear masks in public as they see it as a violation of...

    In the movie “Cliff Hanger,” John Lithgow’s character, Qualen, utters a line that reminds me of how unscrupulous Democrat muckety-mucks like the Clintons and Obama operate. Qualen says, “Kill a few people, they call you a murderer. Kill a million and you’re a conqueror.” Similarly, with the Clintons and Obama, commit a few crimes, they call you a petty criminal. Commit a million and you’re untouchable. Well, maybe not a million—then again. You get the point. We’re now seeing a cascade of unearthed evidence of what seems to be an apparent three-plus-year coup attempt by the Obama administration and media...

    "Begin impeachment proceedings against Governor Tom Wolf of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania" "This is no longer ONLY about gun control and the 2nd amendment. Governor Wolf is blatantly violating the US Constitution through misuse of his gubernatorial position during this COVID-19 situation. He needs to be stopped before he causes further damage to our great commonwealth. During this time he has been using this pandemic and the panic as an opportunity to push all of his controversial legislation, going so far at one point, to state that he will not reopen the state until his list of state legislation is...

    More than 600 doctors signed onto a letter sent to President Trump Tuesday pushing him to end the "national shutdown" aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus, calling the widespread state orders keeping businesses closed and kids home from school a "mass casualty incident" with "exponentially growing health consequences." The letter outlines a variety of consequences that the doctors have observed resulting from the coronavirus shutdowns, including patients missing routine checkups that could detect things like heart problems or cancer, increases in substance and alcohol abuse, and increases in financial instability that could lead to "[p]overty and financial uncertainty,"...

    NRA Shooting Illustrated ^ | Monday, March 30, 2020 | Ed Head
    Jack Wilson’s heroics were the product of practice, bravery and a sense of duty. The degree of precision he employed has many rethinking their training. As you’re reading this, the shooting at the West Freeway Church of Christ in Texas happened about 3 months ago, but as I’m writing this, the shooting and the heroics of Jack Wilson took place yesterday. As you may recall, a murderer stood up in the front of the church and shot down two men with a shotgun he had concealed under his coat. Mr. Wilson, head of the church volunteer security team, drew...

    The Congressman said that the headwinds he faced from the abortion lobby revealed the level of their concern to silence a pro-life Democratic voice.WASHINGTON, D.C. — Catholics have a critical role in bridging the divides of today’s polarized society, one outgoing Catholic congressman says. “We live in a very polarized society, and I think that’s bad for our society, bad for our country,” Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Ill., an outgoing eight-term Catholic congressman from Chicago’s South Side, told CNA in an interview on Wednesday. “It seems very clear to me,” he said, that “more and more people are making their political...

    The FBI has established a firm link between Al-Qaeda and Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, the Saudi aviation student who killed three U.S. service members and injured eight other Americans during a terrorist attack at the Pensacola naval airbase in Florida in December 2019. The FBI found that Alshamrani, who was killed in the attack, had “significant ties” to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and frequently contacted operatives in the terrorist organization, even on the night before the attack, the leaders of the Justice Department (DOJ) and the FBI announced Monday.

    Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) countered a Democrat-led push for more regulations on “ghost guns” by making clear his belief that there is enough gun control already. On May 15, 2020, Breitbart News reported that Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and other Democrats are demanding background checks for “ghost guns” and kits containing parts that can be used to build guns. The Mike Bloomberg-founded gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety, supports the Democrat push. Politico quoted Sen. Cornyn in a way that gave readers the impression that he also supported the advocacy. They reported that Cornyn “might...

    New figures obtained by RNZ show last year had the highest rates of gun crime and deaths involving firearms for nearly 10 years. But despite that rise, there has not been a corresponding increase in officers taking out or using their guns. The figures, obtained from police under the Official Information Act, show the rates of gun crime went up in both 2018 and 2019. Last year, there were 3540 occasions where an offender was found with a gun. And in both of the last two years, the rate of deadly incidents involving a firearm was the highest it had...

    Ten different guns cases were on the agenda of the justices’ private conference on Friday, where they met to decide which cases they will hear in the upcoming term. Each of those cases has been considered at one previous conference, a clear signal that there is “serious interest” in hearing them, according to John Elwood, a leading court observer and a partner at the law firm Arnold & Porter. It is possible the court could announce as soon as Monday that it will hear one or more of the cases. If it does so, a decision would be expected by...

    In a March 15, 2020 article about a bear encounter by Caroline Wellbery, a bear biologist makes a hyperbolic claim. It is not unusual for people to make hyperbolic claims about bears, which are not founded in facts or data. It is irresponsible for experts in the field to do so. From the washingtonpost.com: There is a bigger chance of getting hit twice by lightning, Craighead says, than being mauled by a bear. As with any statistical assessment, it depends on a number of assumptions. If you are talking about the United States as a whole, Craighead's claim is...

    This latest Coronavirus is quite good at laying low until the time is right. For days it sits idle, remaining largely asymptomatic. Then the virus makes its move. Like a virus attempting to infect its host, some liberal U.S. senators are trying to use Coronavirus as an excuse to stop gun sales. In a letter now made public and sent April 2 to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, several Democrat senators — Sens. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Edward Markey (D-Mass.) — urged the directors of the FBI and ATF to effectively halt pending gun...

    DALLAS (CN) – The Thompson & Knight law firm fired a Dallas-based administrative manager Friday after he allegedly posted a threat on social media against businesses with Covid-19 face mask requirements that had references to a handgun and hollow point-bullets. Screenshots of the “no more masks” rant began appearing on Twitter Friday, with several users claiming it was authored by a Kevin Bain. Bain has worked since 2009 as the law firm’s document services manager, according to his Linkedin profile. Any business that tells me to put on a mask (Whole Foods on Lomo Alto) in Dallas will get told...

    Automatic weapons are unicorns in the gun world. Every gun owners want ones. But thanks to the circus known as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, most automatic weapons and machineguns are prohibitively expensive. And with the recent ban on the bumpstock (even though the bumpstock doesn’t even meet the ATF’s definition of a machinegun) what is a freedom-loving gun owner to do? When you tire of laboriously emptying magazines with one trigger squeeze, when the Mad Minutes get boring, where do you go next? The Gat Crank might be the answer. The beauty of the Gat Crank is...

    On Friday, 1 May, 2020, at about 2 p.m., Calvin Munerlyn, 43, a security guard at a Dollar Store in Flint, Michigan, was shot and killed. 20 minutes earlier, at about 1:40, he had confronted a woman, Sharmel Lashe, and her daughter,  and ordered her daughter to wear a mask in the store, as required by Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Stores are allowed to refuse service to customers if they are not wearing a mask.  The daughter left, but Sharmel got into an altercation with Calvin Munerlyn. Sharmel is reported as spitting on Munerlyn, then leaving in a red GMC...
