Obama: Executive Actions on Gun Control are “Entirely Consistent With the 2nd Amendment”

The Second Amendment says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. At the same time, Obama said that his recent promise to take executive action on guns due to Congress’s inaction is “entirely consistent with the Second Amendment.” Breitbart reported: Barack Obama insists his planned executive actions on gun control will be “entirely consistent” with the Constitution – even as organizations defending the Second Amendment have warned him not to act on Read more […]

The Way This Pastor Prevented a Mass Shooting Might Surprise You

It was during the New Year’s Eve service just before midnight at a Fayetteville, North Carolina church that a man walked in with an unloaded semi-automatic rifle in one hand and a loaded magazine in the other. Incidentally, the pastor of the church had just been talking to his congregation about violence, particularly violence and mass shootings against churches in the recent past. While the loaded magazine was not attached to the rifle, the pastor was concerned that there might be a round in Read more […]

Poll: Only 2% of Americans are Concerned About Guns

Of the top 23 top important issues facing Americans, the issue of guns and gun control ranked 19 in a recent Gallup poll. Only 2% of respondents thought that the issue was an important national problem. CNS News reported: According to Gallup, only one percent of respondents mentioned guns/gun control as a concern for most of the months in 2015, although mentions spiked to 7 percent in October and December following mass shootings in those months that dominated the news. (The overall average for Read more […]

Texans Celebrate New Open Carry Law at State Capitol Building

It was always surprising to me that it was against Texas law to open carry handguns. You could open carry rifles, but not handguns. Those had to be carried concealed. New legislation has made the open carrying of handguns legal. Actually, bad legislation was overturned. Hundreds of Texans celebrated by open carrying their handguns on the steps of the State Capitol. Surprisingly, no one was hurt or killed during their heavily-armed celebration. [I jest.] I’ve written about open carry demonstrations Read more […]

Obama’s New Year’s Resolution: Take Executive Action on Gun Control

This is probably the one promise we can expect Obama to fulfill. It doesn’t mean he’ll get exactly what he wants. Obama says that the gun lobby is powerful and well-funded. He’s right. And that’s why I think it will be very difficult for him to make headway. But he’ll get close. In his first address of the year, Obama voiced dismay that Congress hasn’t “done anything” to try to prevent gun violence. For this reason, he vowed to handle it himself: He acknowledged that gun Read more […]

California Bans Campus Carry, Extends Gun Confiscation Powers in Same Day

Effective January 1st, California will prohibit students from carrying on university campuses. It was a little surprising to me that California of all places allowed campus carry, as long as the carrier had a concealed carry license. It was listed as an exemption in the law, but I’m sure gun control proponents considered it an unfortunate oversight. This “oversight” is now being corrected. There’s now a universal ban on campus carry, and there are no exceptions. Also effective January Read more […]

Criminal Tries to Break into Texas Home; Gets Shot Three Times

If he had been somewhere like New York City, he’d probably have been fine. Gun ownership is strongly discouraged there, and people have a general fear of guns. If he had broken into someone’s house there, he probably would have been able to get whatever he wanted and leave unharmed. But Texas is a different story. People there own guns and use them in these kinds of breaking-and-entering cases: A man was shot several times when investigators say he tried to break into a Pasadena home in the Read more […]

Hypocrisy: Leftist Elites Surrounded by Armed Guards Want to Take Your Gun

“The world is filled with violence. Because criminals carry guns, we decent law-abiding citizens should also have guns. Otherwise they will win and the decent people will loose.” – James Earl Jones Liberals hate guns. It’s that simple. They hate the fact that because of the Second Amendment, no government–federal or state–can simply decide to confiscate our guns. It’s as if they truly believe that if guns were eliminated, humanity would suddenly live in peaceful cohabitation. But the genie is Read more […]

Samuel L. Jackson on San Bernardino: “I Really Wanted That to Just be Another, you Know, Crazy White Dude, and not Really Some Muslims”

I think that what he was saying was that if it were a “crazy white dude,” he wouldn’t be as fearful, since we’ve seen that many times already. When he learned that it was a radical Muslim couple, his reaction was, “Oh, s***. It’s here. And it’s here in another kind of way.” In context, he was saying that he didn’t want it to be an act of terrorism, because in his mind, that would be so much worse. That’s why he was hoping it was a crazy white person. The Blaze reported: In a Read more […]

Gun Sales Up Even More Amid Christmas Season

Gun sales have already been on the rise since the Paris attacks and San Bernardino. And in spite of all the rhetoric and legislative propositions coming from the left as to how to deal with “gun violence,” the country has in general moved away from gun control. This year was already seeing a gun sales trend, as gun sales hit record highs seven months in a row through November. Sales spiked on Black Friday, and this year is on pace to break records with gun sales. All they need is to pass 1.2 Read more […]

Clinton: “Guns Will not Make Americans Safer”

In a sense, I actually think she’s right. Guns, in and of themselves, won’t do a whole lot. They need to be carried, handled, and used by good, knowledgeable, and responsible citizens in order for them to do any good. Having a large arsenal in one’s basement – while useful in some ways – won’t contribute much to the overall safety of a society. CNS News reported: Debate moderator Martha Raddatz noted that Clinton, in the wake of the San Bernardino attack, repeated her call for gun control: Read more […]

Poll: Majority of Americans Oppose “Assault Weapons” Ban

According to ABC News and the Washington Post, for the first time in twenty years, a majority of Americans oppose a ban on so-called assault weapons. What they mean by “assault weapons” are nothing more than semi-automatic rifles. They operate the same exact way as semi-automatic handguns, but they look “scarier.” The Blaze reported: According to a new ABC/Washington Post national poll, there is a growing sense that armed citizens could help thwart a “lone wolf” terrorist as confidence Read more […]
