Anti-Gunners: CeaseFire PA: State and city lawmakers must respond to violent weekend in Philly :: 06/19/2019

In a weekend bookended by the anniversaries of the horrific hate crimes at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando and the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, Philadelphia suffered 16 shootings in the city, with 26 people shot and four killed. The shootings occurred at a deli, on South Street – a gathering spot for residents as well as tourists -- on a playground, and at a graduation party in a park. The graduation party shooting might meet the technical definition of a mass shooting, with six people shot; but with only one person killed, it was reported in the B section of the paper and likely won’t make national news.

The California Department of Justice on Monday filed an "emergency regulations" proposal. If adopted, Californians would be required to have REAL IDs to purchase firearms and ammunition beginning on July 1. The proposal is being made despite the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives previously saying Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) could continue to non-federally compliant driver's licenses and identification cards.

Dems: The Second Amendment was about hunting, you know :: 06/18/2019

Earlier today, Ed picked through the bones of Eric Swalwell’s laughable gun control platform, pointing out a very real gap in the congressman’s grasp of the Second Amendment. But the longshot POTUS candidate isn’t the only member of his party that seems to have trouble grasping the finer points of the Bill of Rights. Democratic Senators Dianne Feinstein (California) and Chris Murphy (Connecticut) published an editorial piece in Time this week and have since been busy publicizing it on social media and cable news.


Gun Rights Made All the Difference for These Intended Victims :: 06/18/2019

Contrary to the rhetoric of many gun control advocates, the Second Amendment’s protection of the individual right to keep and bear arms is not a malevolent, outdated barricade to peace that must be demolished or diminished in the name of public safety.


NZ Cops: No Registration Makes Rounding Up Guns Difficult :: 06/18/2019

Rep. Thomas Massie, John Lott: Gun-free zones need to go. They are not only ineffective, they're dangerous :: 06/18/2019

The tragedy at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center fits an all too familiar pattern—yet another mass shooting in a place the victims were banned from carrying guns. The most lives are claimed in places where people can’t defend themselves on equal footing. It’s not a coincidence the attack occurred in a public building filled with public employees prohibited from carrying handguns, concealed or otherwise.


Another Reason Smart Guns Aren't Coming Any Time Soon :: 06/17/2019

While New Jersey continually tries to push for smart guns, companies have been resistant to develop the technology. Part of that, I’ve argued, is because no one wanted to trigger the clock built into New Jersey’s smart gun law.


Baltimore: More Gun Control, More Crime :: 06/17/2019

Shootings are surging in Baltimore despite the presence of bans on “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines, two of the Democrats’ go-to gun controls.


DRGO-The Truth Is Being Suppressed :: 06/17/2019

The murderous attack May 31in the Virginia Beach city government building has predictably elicited outrage and opportunism by masses of sensitive, easily triggered [all puns intended] anti-gun activists and legislators. A large fraction of them are of course Democrats running for their party’s Presidential nomination.


Gun Violence Prevention Bills (Congress) Treat Rights as Privileges :: 06/17/2019

This legislation came in wake of the Aurora Theatre and Sandy Hook shooting. The state legislature passed this ban, which then-governor John Hickenlooper added his signature to.

Are our gun rights being chipped away? :: 06/15/2019

     Are we the proverbial frog in the pot?  Has the heat been slowly turning up on us and we're just not noticing it?  At what point does someone knock on the pot to get us to jump out.  What if that's too late?  What if many of us have been knocking on the pot and the rest simply can't hear it, or worse yet, refuse to listen.


British Police Handing Out 'Blunt' Knives To Reduce Stabbings :: 06/15/2019

Once upon a time, the British Empire was the bada** of the world. It could go where it wanted and do pretty much whatever it wanted.
