Gun Control

Chinese State Media Demands US Citizens Be Disarmed

Hat/Tip to Brandon Darby at Breitbart. So the murderous regime that is the Chinese government is now seeing fit to lecture us on the 2nd Amendment. The Chinese state-controlled media’s statement, titled “Innocent Blood Demands No Delay for US Gun Control,” is primarily focused on the Newtown tragedy in which 26 Americans were killed by a mad gunman. Twenty of the victims were young children. The Chinese government stated, “Their blood and tears demand no delay for the U.S. gun control.” It would seem that the Chinese powers that be feel that they need to engage in propaganda to subvert freedom.

America: $old Off to the Highest Bidder

  America’s politicians have been selling their influence for votes and money since 1789, if not earlier.  Those elected by “The People” who have gone to Washington to manage America’s affairs in the interest of their electorate have been the exception and not the rule. Most enter politics for self interest rather than out of any noble sense of duty. So, we know who the influence peddlers are: the 536 people we so carelessly elect every few years to “represent” our interests, as well as, countless agenda driven bureaucrats. It’s common knowledge who the buyers of the influence being peddled […]

A Visit To A Gun Show Reveals Why Liberals Are Way Off When It Comes To Gun Control

When it comes to liberal talking points about gun control, you’ve heard it all before. Michael Bloomberg paid for a ad for McAuiliffe’s gubernatorial bid against Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia. NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s $1.1 million anti-gun advertisement buy for Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Terry McAuiliffe. Bloomberg funneled the money into Virginia through his PAC, USA Independence and advertisements have been running on radio and television since Tuesday.

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens Wants To Take Your Guns

Supreme Court Justice Ret. John Paul Stevens has a book out and in it he proposes several major changes to the United States Constitution. Chief among them is his desire to take guns away from every individual United States citizen in the country. Why? Well, one look at his voting record and you can see his true liberal colors bleed through. The 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Rights reads as follows: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Stevens […]

Huge Win for the 2nd Amendment Foundation

John W. Jackson is an Australian citizen, who legally resides in America, specifically in New Mexico. He applied for a concealed carry permit and was denied on the fact that he was not a citizen of the United States, even though he was a legal resident. He sued the state of New Mexico, along with the Second Amendment Foundation for his right to obtain a concealed carry weapon permit. The crux of the state’s defense was that it is impossible to do a full background check on citizens of other countries, even though they reside legally here in the US. […]

I’m doing lately what I don’t usually do … find a story and simply link to it. But this one is too good to pass up.

Man Saves Father From Armed Criminal with a Gun, Media Silent

Apparently, shootings are only newsworthy when a redneck tea party conservative crazed liberal kills a slew of people.  However, when a common citizen uses a gun to save themselves or others, it’s a snoozefest from the media talking heads.  The latest example appears below, via The Minority Report… KLTV.com-Tyler, Longview, Jacksonville, Texas | ETX News As I usually state, leftists would prefer that both of these men be dead. If they achieved their goals, the son would have no gun. The criminal, who isn’t following the law anyway, would possess a gun and would have easily killed both men, and […]

Teenager Demolishes Gun Control Arguments

In a brief speech, a Maryland 15 year old demolishes gun control arguments.  Take a look for yourself… Gun control is what she says it is, a means to liberate people from their freedom, and enable higher crime rates. Oh, and waiting for the girl to get death threats in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1… H/T: The Conservative Post

New Jersey’s New Gun Laws Result in Higher Murder Rate

According to Wyblog, New Jersey  reacted to the Sandy Hook massacre by passing some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country.  And, like other states or cities that have passed strict gun laws, the murder rate went up… In 2013 NJ enacted the stricted gun laws in the nation, and the murder rate soared Last year our knee-jerk liberal fascists reacted predictably to the Newtown, CT school shooting by enacting some of the strictest gun control legislation in the nation. Also last year the murder rate in our fine state soared to a seven-year high. Coincidence? I mean […]

We have an update on the story of Karl Pierson, the socialist high school student who committed the school shooting last week, before taking his own life.apparently,Karl Pierson was upset with the librarian, who is also the debate coach, for kicking him off the the debate team. The Other McCain has more.

Thirteen Minutes of Awesome: Why Good People Should be Armed

Wow, I saw this over at Moonbattery, and just had to post it here. It features, Josie the Outlaw, and is an excellent discussion of why it is important for good people to be armed.  Take a look for yourself… I really can’t add to it.  It’s just that good.  Linked by the Daley Gator, Thanks!

The Psychology of Gun Control Revisited

This past February, I saw a picture that shows the psychology of gun control perfectly.  Here’s the pic… The real psychology of gun control is far more subtle than the public debate would imply.  It is also far more powerful.  The state always wants order, and power.  While order is desirable, the state’s means of enforcing it is shown by the man with the whip.  It is based on fear, threats, and injustice.  It is not just, it is violence.  As for the people?  Most of them bowed.   But when one stood up, others were emboldened to stand as […]

Think Progress Lies Yet Again: Uses Picture to Misportray Gun Control Opponents

I know, Think Progress lying?  It happens whenever one of their writer’s keyboards is in operation.   For that, I really almost never cover them.  It’s a bit too much, “grasp of the obvious” to cover every day.  However, at times, they lie so stupendously,  blatantly, and outrageously, that they warrant attention.  Here are some previous examples… Think Progress Engaging in Crony “Journalism,” Is Anyone Surprised? Quick Hits: Fake Excuse Writers Under Investigation, School Employee Disciplined, Think Progress Caught Lying (Yet Again) Think Progress Makes it up as they go Along: Uses Old Footage and False Flag to Assert that Tea […]

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Kansas Professor, David Guth, Wishes Death on Innocent Children

It seems that reciting lies about mass shootings for political points, and then, wishing  death on innocent children is all in a day’s work for journalism professor, David Guth.  A journalism professor at the University of Kansas (KU) turned to Twitter on Monday to suggest he would like to see the murder of children of National Rifle Association (NRA) members at the hands of a deranged gunman. A journalism professor has defended tweets he sent out which called for the death of NRA employees children. “#NavyYardShooting The blood is on the hands of the #NRA,” tweeted David Guth, who is […]

Guns Save Lives: Armed Woman Takes on Six Armed Robbers, Saves Husband

Once again, guns save lives… video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo playerOf course, liberals would be happier if these people were dead.  As only criminals can have guns.  Fortunately, they were not in Chicago, where strict gun control laws prevent shootings, right? The City of Chicago is still racking up distressing numbers of shootings even as crime otherwise in the Windy City has gone down. On August 12, for instance, six people were shot in the space of only one hour. On that Monday, between the 6:15 PM and 7:13 PM, six people were shot, one of them a 13-year-old boy. At […]

NY Based Gun Company,Kahr Firearms, Taking Business, Jobs, and Tax Revenue to Pennsylvania

Gun grabbers are costing their state’s jobs and tax revenue.  Political Outcast has the story… Shortly after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed their anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment laws into effect, Texas State Attorney General Greg Abbott ran a series of ads in New York inviting people and businesses to move to gun friendly Texas. I never heard if any New Yorkers took him up on his invite, but thought it was a pretty good idea. Whether prompted by Abbott’s invite or the examples from Colorado, at least one New York based firearms company has announced that they are leaving […]
