Report: Mass Shootings on the Rise…but Only in Gun-Free Zones

The Washington Post is reporting something that isn’t all that surprising. Mass shootings in general are declining, except for those that happen in gun-free zones. Breitbart reported: According to WaPo, “In 1993, there were seven homicides by firearm for every 100,000 Americans. … By 2013, that figure had fallen by nearly half, to 3.6 [per 100,000].” Breitbart News previously pointed to this decline and explained it correlated with a massive increase in privately owned firearms over the Read more […]

Gun-Free Zone Sign Fails to Stop Theater Shooter

Get ready for the media (if they haven’t already) to try to discredit everything the Tea Party has stood for and done because of the actions of one guy who allegedly signed up at a tea party website who also killed three people at a “gun-free” Lafayette theater. According to a tea party leader, the Lafayette theater shooter didn’t ever do anything, say anything, or contribute anything through the website forums, but he did have an account, according to the Daily Caller: It appears the Read more […]

Purple Hearts for Gun Free Fort Hood Victims

Fort Hood victims are going to be awarded Purple Hearts; meanwhile, Fort Hood continues to be a gun free zone. “The laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an unarmed man.” – Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria According Read more […]

Experts Baffled How Sydney Hostage Taker Got Firearm

How did the Sydney hostage taker obtain a rifle? Reaction to the Sydney siege has ranged from absolute horror to stunned sadness, but as the dust has settled, one question remains: How did Man Haron Monis obtain his firearm? Shortly after the Port Arthur mass shooting in 1996, Australia implemented some of the most strict gun control laws in the world. According to Business Insider: “The laws banned all automatic and semi-automatic weapons and instituted strict licensing rules involving background Read more […]

North Carolina Bans Guns at State Fair; Two People Get Robbed at Gunpoint

Without guns at state fair, people get robbed. A judge had ruled against allowing firearms at the North Carolina state fair, and what do you know, a couple people ended up getting robbed at gunpoint. Apparently, North Carolina had just passed a law that expanded concealed carry rights, and some argued that the judge violated that law by prohibiting concealed carriers from being able to defend themselves. Whether their local law was violated or not, what we know for a fact is that the 2nd Amendment Read more […]

Another Gun Free School Targeted; MSNBC Calls for More Gun Control

Predictably, the liberal news media are calling for tighter gun control laws in the aftermath of another gun free school shooting that left two dead, including the murderer himself, and a half-dozen others injured. The shooting took place at Marysville Pilchuck High School in Washington state. Here’s MSNBC: Joy Reid said, “But we can’t have a conversation about school shootings without talking about the country’s gun laws.” In a sense, she’s right. You can’t address any kind Read more […]

Gun-Free Zone Sign Fails to Stop Shooter at Courthouse

Here’s another case where a gun-free zone sign failed to act to prevent a shooting. It was at a county supervisors meeting at the courthouse in Maquoketa, Iowa where a man came to dispute his property taxes. He was actually a former Maquoketa city manager himself. The courthouse had the usual gun-free zone sign posted at the entrance, which is supposed to deter those with ill intent from doing anything bad. They don’t usually work though. This man was upset about his property taxes, Read more […]

Panera Bread Declares Itself Gun-Free Zone

Here’s yet another business that allowed that gun control mom group to get to them. According to Moms Demand Action, the Bloomberg-funded gun control group formed in the emotional aftermath of the totally-preventable Sandy Hook mass murder, they had been in negotiations with Panera for months to get them to bar customers who exercise their 2nd Amendment duties from entering their premises. Moms Demand Action must have some boilerplate press release that the businesses they court use, because Read more […]

Another Restaurant with a “Guns Welcome” Sign at the Entrance

There’s a restaurant in East Tennessee called Shiloh Brew and Chew. While it sounds like a place to drink and smoke, the “brew” is for coffee, and the “chew” is for food. The owner admits it was probably not the greatest decision on her part to give her business a misleading name. But she recently made another decision that is perhaps making up for any lost business. After reading about a restaurant in North Carolina that got robbed at gunpoint just two days after posting a gun-free Read more […]

Target Becomes Target of Armed Robberies After Declaring Themselves Gun-Free Zones

This is hardly the first time something like this has happened. Recently, a barbecue restaurant that was very adamant about and probably proud of their no-guns policy was robbed at gunpoint. There’s a shock. Breitbart’s reporting now that there have already been two robberies in Target parking lots ever since Target announced a ban on their customers’ 2nd Amendment rights: On July 2 Breitbart News reported that interim Target CEO John Mulligan “respectfully” asked law-abiding citizens Read more […]

House Dems Pushing Hard for Gun Control AGAIN

Do you remember watching the old western movies when the Indians attacked the wagon trains that had formed a circle? The Indians would attack in waves, retreating from time to time only to regroup before attacking again. Well, the anti-gun Democrats pulled back a few months ago and are again on the verge of mounting another attack against our Second Amendment rights to own and bear arms. Last week, 163 House Democrats sent a letter to Rep. John Boehner, Speaker of the House, demanding: “A Read more […]

In such cases, judicious marksmanship is appreciated.” The restaurant, located in Rifle, Colorado is called Shooters Grill.
