America has two gun cultures: Don't blame law-abiding gun owners for murders :: 02/21/2018

When a mass murder happens in our country, like so many Americans I wring my hands and look for answers – for anything that will stop these monsters. I don’t like to speak out at these times, because as Ecclesiastes correctly tells us there is “a time to every purpose under the heaven,” including “a time to mourn.”


Ann Coulter: Amazing New Breakthrough to Reduce Mass Shootings :: 02/21/2018

As fun as it is to ridicule the FBI for devoting massive resources to chasing down Hillary Clinton’s oppo research while blowing off repeated, specific warnings about school shooter Nikolas Cruz, we’ve put a lot on the agency’s plate.


CNN's Cuomo Spreads Misleading AR-15 Story, Doubles Down When Called Out :: 02/21/2018

CNN host Chris Cuomo recently spread a misleading story on Twitter about how easy it is to purchase an AR-15, only to double down when called out on the error.


Colorado School District Allows Teachers to Be Armed :: 02/21/2018

As state legislators debate on what measures should be taken to prevent school shootings, one rural school district in Colorado is not waiting around and has given the green light for teachers and staff to be armed.


Flashback-- National Institute of Justice: Federal 'Assault Weapons' Ban Did Not Reduce Crime :: 02/21/2018

As the federal “assault weapons” ban was about to expire in 2004, the Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) reported that the ban could not be credited with any reduction in crime.


Israeli Writer: Israel Is Proof The NRA Is Right :: 02/21/2018

If we step aside from our cynicism at a time like this, we can probably assume that everyone on the planet wants to see the end of mass shootings. The few that don’t are generally the sick bastards who are planning the next ones. While there are plenty of opportunists who are seizing the moment following such horrific events, I’d like to believe that even they would prefer to see the end of such attacks.


Rothfus: Law-abiding Americans need semi-automatic guns because 'the bad guys are going to get these guns' :: 02/21/2018

BRIDGEWATER — With the Florida school massacre igniting a national debate over access to high-powered guns, U.S. Rep. Keith Rothfus said Tuesday that semi-automatic weapons such as the one used in the mass shooting should still be available to law-abiding Americans.


School Safety and the Placebo of Gun Control :: 02/21/2018

I’ve heard that phrase time and again from politicians and gun control spokesmen. With some 23 thousand firearms regulations already on the books, it seems that we’ve done quite a lot that hasn’t worked. Those ineffective laws don’t stop the urge for more feel-good regulation after the murders in Parkland, Florida.


There's a Way to Stop Mass Shootings, and You Won't Like It. :: 02/20/2018

That’s right. You’re not going to like it because it’s going to require you to do something personally, as opposed to shouting for the government, or anyone to “do something!”


Local Reporter Goes Rogue, Tells Truth About Guns, Enrages Liberals on Air :: 02/19/2018

During a report this week, a local Minnesota reporter blew some uninformed liberal minds by touting some basic facts about gun ownership in his state.


Trump open to supporting background check bill :: 02/19/2018

In the wake of the Florida shooting, White House spokesmen told reporters Monday that President Trump is open to a bipartisan background check bill pending in the Senate.


Ted Cruz Lashes Out At Hypocritical Anti-Gun Celebrities :: 02/18/2018

Ted Cruz has a problem with anti-gun celebrities. In particular, it’s the hypocrisy of anti-gun celebrities who hide behind private armed security.


Writer Admits To What We Already Knew On 'Sensible Gun Control' :: 02/18/2018

For some time, gun grabbers have argued that no, they don’t really want all of our guns. They just want “common sense gun control,” as they put it. They realized some time ago that trying to take away the Second Amendment wasn’t going to work, so they shifted gears and are now trying to present their demands as reasonable.


Anti-Gunners: Let's repeal the Second Amendment :: 02/17/2018

Thirty thousand Americans die every year from gunshot wounds, whether from homicide, suicide, or accident. We have had several school shootings in the past several months, roughly one every sixty hours thus far in 2018. And our feckless leaders in the Senate and the House remain beholden to the National Rifle Association, a trade organization that has opposed any attempt to remedy the problem.


FBI Admits To Dropping The Ball Even More Than We Thought :: 02/17/2018

Earlier today, I wrote about how the FBI seems to have dropped the ball on the Parkland shooter. They somewhat admitted to their screw up, though it was more of a shrug and a “whatcha gonna do” kind of situation. However, it looks like they’re now admitting they dropped the ball even worse than we initially thought (emphasis mine).


Gun Hysteria Is Senseless And Out Of Control :: 02/17/2018

We live in a time where the fear and hysteria surrounding firearms is at an all-time high. Not only is there a growing paranoia about firearms in light of recent tragedies, but there is an ever-growing debate about the place which some firearms have in the lives of ordinary citizens.


Guns Aren't Responsible for School Shootings, Blame Music and Video Games: Republican Governor :: 02/17/2018

The governor of Kentucky on Thursday side-stepped calls for gun control in the wake of a school shooting that left 17 people dead and more than a dozen more wounded after a teen opened fire with a legally purchased AR-15. Instead, Republican Governor Matt Bevin called for an "honest conversation" about violence, then pointed the blame at video games and music. 


We Can't Have A Debate About Guns If Liberals Keep Lying About Them :: 02/17/2018

There’s always a lot of emotion after a horrific school shooting, and that’s completely understandable. There is also an immediate push for vague “do-something” gun-control legislation often wholly untethered from the incidents it is purporting to stop, which is less understandable.


Scalise: Don't Try to Promote Your Agenda in the Middle of a Tragedy - One Magic Law Won't Stop Shootings :: 02/16/2018

On Thursday’s edition of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) urged people “go pray for the families, care about these families, don’t try to promote your agenda in the middle of a tragedy.” He also dismissed “this idea that one magic law is going to stop” the next mass shooting.


After Texas massacre, military rushed to add more than 4,000 to gun ban list :: 02/13/2018

Since an ex-US airman shot more than two dozen people in a Texas church in November, the US military has added more than 4,000 names to the nation’s list of dishonorably discharged military personnel banned from owning firearms — a sign of what has been a massive hole in the nation’s gun buying background check system.
