“No One’s Coming for Your Guns”: Georgia Bill Calls for Banning, Confiscating Millions of Firearms

Liberals think that conservatives are paranoid conspiracy theorists for thinking that the government’s goal is to confiscate everyone’s guns. How ridiculous of a notion, considering that there are hundreds of millions of guns across the country. How in the world would the U.S. government go about confiscating all those firearms? At the same time, they point to “success stories” like the U.K. and Australia who effectively got rid of “gun violence” by, well, coming after people’s guns. 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.

Poll: Majority of Americans Not in Favor of “Assault Weapon” Ban

Planes, Guns, and Automobiles: Perceived Safety and Irrational Fears

My brother-in-law has never flown in an airplane. He’s terrified of the idea. But he’s a big fan of driving. It’s basically useless to tell him the statistical reality that flying is probably safer than driving: In absolute numbers, driving is more dangerous, with more than 5 million accidents compared to 20 accidents in flying. A more direct comparison per 100 million miles pits driving’s 1.27 fatalities and 80 injuries against flying’s lack of deaths and almost no injuries, which again shows Read more […]

Missouri Democrats Introduce Bill to Confiscate Assault Weapons in 90 Days

While everyone’s attention is on President Obama and the federal government’s attempt to strip Americans of the Second Amendment rights, politicians at the state level are trying to enact their own anti-gun laws without the general public knowing it. Missouri Democrats have proposed a bill that would require everyone in the state who owns an assault weapon and/or high capacity magazine to turn them in within 90 days of the passage of the bill. Sponsored by first term Democrat Rep. Rory Read more […]
