Quote Of The Week

"What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that's not cool, that it's not acceptable, it's not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes. . . . One thing that I think is clear with young people, and with adults as well, is that we just have to be repetitive about this. . . . We need to do this every day of the week, every school, at every level, and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way." - Anti-Gun Eric Holder, speaking to the Woman’s National Democratic Club in 1995, as televised on CSPAN in 1995-14 years before President Barack Obama appointed him as Attorney General, in Obama's Administration.

Politicians Fighting Back With Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act Reform :: 02/20/2019

The Aurora, Ill., active shooter incident ended when police arrived and engaged the threat. Research shows that in most active shooter incidents — in both businesses and schools — the event ends when the suspect either commits suicide or the police arrive to end their murderous rampage. Yet while this reality plays out across America, some states choose to minimize the law enforcement officers’ response capability. Instead of trying to empower LEOs on the streets, many states have neutered those that could end a threat. How? By stripping away their guns and authority, in direct conflict with existing federal law — the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act.
