Guns Save Lives. . .but not in Democrat Controlled Cities :: 10/21/2019
Democrats were shouting about gun control a few weeks ago. Their confiscation crusade crashed when Donald Trump started investigating the corrupt dealings of Vice President Joe Biden and his son in Ukraine. The news may have moved on, but all that breathless news coverage reminded me how glad I am that we can carry concealed. I know people who were the victims of violent crime. With all the media coverage of gun-control, why doesn’t the news media report on the victims who defend themselves?
Police Organizations Torch 2020 Democrat's Gun Confiscation Plan As Asinine, Ridiculous, and Likely Unconstitutional :: 10/21/2019
Former Rep. Robert Francis O’Rourke (D-NM) (aka ‘Beto’) is the left-wing blowhard on guns that liberals fear. Why? Well, it’s because he gives up the playbook and he did so on a national stage. You all know about his plan to confiscate so-called scary guns from the hands of the law-abiding citizenry. AR-15 rifles, one of the most popular in the U.S., and AK-47s are the two scary rifles anti-gun liberals want out of the hands of civilians. Only the government can be trusted with guns is the de facto position of the Democratic Party—and Beto did a crackerjack job in picking Kent State University to make that pitch. Because nothing says trust government with guns than a site where the National Guard shot and killed four students in 1970.
Bloomberg Propagandists Say Close DUI Loophole :: 10/20/2019
U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “The combination of guns and alcohol is especially dangerous, and far too little has been done to address it,” the Bloomberg Opinion Editorial Board hyperventilates. “Federal law doesn’t restrict access to guns by people with a history of alcohol abuse, and fewer than half of U.S. states impose prohibitions of this kind.”
Putting Gun-Control to the Test :: 10/20/2019
We all want to protect our family and friends. Gun-Control is the theory that disarming honest people will stop criminals. That is a fantastic theory, but does gun-control work in practice? Now that we have new FBI data at hand, we don’t have to guess if gun-control reduces violent crime. The answers might surprise you as we look from coast to coast. Does gun control save lives or cost them?

Everyone wants to stop dangerous people from getting guns. The hot new policy option before this committee is Red Flag laws, which take away the guns of people deemed dangerous to themselves or others. But there is a much more effective alternative already in place.

New York Magazine Questions Gun Control From The Left :: 10/18/2019
There are a group of people who have spent a lot of time demonizing police officers all throughout the nation. While police do make mistakes and that there are times when criticism seems completely justified, these folks don’t see individuals who may have screwed up or even departments that might represent a problem. No, they see anyone in blue as part of some bizarre brand of evil.

Why Gun Confiscation Really Wouldn't Work In The U.S. :: 10/18/2019
Beto O’Rourke is all about gun confiscation. To make matters worse, most of the Democrats currently running for president seem to support him in this with a notable exception. Even that exception isn’t opposed to the idea of gun confiscation, just the idea that it’s a workable solution.
Why Leftists Use Gun Control To Hide From Scandal :: 10/18/2019
Last week, I took Golden State Warriors’ coach Steve Kerr to task over his anti-gun remarks. Honestly, I’d given the guy a pass for a while because his father had been shot to death and he’s a basketball coach, not someone who really has a say over our lives.

If It Bleeds It Leads: How the American Media Perpetuates and Profits from Mass Shootings :: 10/17/2019
“I have repeatedly told CNN and our other media the following if you don’t want to propagate more mass murders: Don’t start the story with sirens blaring. Don’t have photos of the killer. Don’t make it 24/7 coverage. Do everything you can not to make the body count the lead story. Localize the story to the affected community. And make it as boring as possible in every other market.”

Anti-Gun Bills Pile Up :: 10/16/2019
While most of America has been distracted by Democrat-led efforts to impeach President Donald Trump, gun control bills have been piling up in Congress. Two of the measures have already been passed by the House, while five others were reported out of committee. The main two legislative items to closely monitor are the “Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2019” (H.R. 1236) and the equally Orwellian “Disarm Hate Act” (H.R. 2708). Neither bill had made it to the House for a floor vote at press time, but AFP readers are urged to stay especially vigilant.
