Police act like laws don't apply to them because of 'qualified immunity.' They're right. :: 05/31/2020

On May 25, Minneapolis police killed George Floyd. While two officers pinned the handcuffed Floyd on a city street, another fended off would-be intervenors as a fourth knelt on Floyd’s neck until — and well after — he lost consciousness.


The Left's Latest Dilemma: Ban Guns or Ban Police? :: 05/31/2020

One of the offshoots of the protests and riots that have erupted in most American cities over the past few days has been a growing call on the left to defund law enforcement and end policing. Search Twitter for the hashtag #DefundPolice and you’ll see thousands of people urging an end to law enforcement as a radical, yet necessary step to eliminate injustices perpetrated by police officers.

Gun Voter Alert: Everytown Anti-Gun Group Reveals Endorsements :: 05/30/2020

U.S.A.-( Everytown for Gun Safety, the gun prohibition lobbying group founded by billionaire former presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, has just done American gun owners a favor by releasing to The Hill its first round of political endorsements in an effort to retain a “gun sense” majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.


How A Mass Shooting Made Me Think About Why We Lose Ground :: 05/30/2020

It was eight years ago today. At once, it seems so long ago, and yet, it also feels like yesterday. That day was the day a dear friend of mine was gunned down by a maniac who was pissed that a coffee shop called Cafe Racer in Seattle wouldn’t serve him any longer.


28 Million Mail-In Ballots Went Missing in Last Four Elections :: 05/29/2020

Between 2012 and 2018, 28.3 million mail-in ballots remain unaccounted for, according to data from the federal Election Assistance Commission. The missing ballots amount to nearly one in five of all absentee ballots and ballots mailed to voters residing in states that do elections exclusively by mail.


Anti-Gun Media: Stand your ground laws are lethal :: 05/29/2020

Information is still emerging about the case of Ahmaud Arbery - the unarmed 25-year-old slain in a quiet Georgia street - but what is known is disturbing. Two men eventually arrested in the killing told police that Arbery was running down the road, and that they thought he was a burglar and shot him in self-defense. Before state officials intervened, following months of delay, a prosecutor cited Georgia’s “stand your ground” law as an exonerating factor.


Black People Must Embrace the Second Amendment :: 05/29/2020

In a recent interview on MSNBC’s “Weekends with Alex Witt,” Charlamagne tha God championed the Second Amendment and urged Black people to arm themselves. He urged Black people to legally purchase firearms, train, and be prepared to use them to defend themselves and their families. His remarks came following the brutal murder of Ahmaud Arbery who was killed by two vicious white men as he jogged in a Brunswick, Georgia, neighborhood.


Pennsylvania Officials Admit Duplicate Ballots Were Mailed Out to Voters :: 05/29/2020

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, officials have admitted that duplicate ballots were mailed out to registered voters, though they are not sure how many.


California Exploits Ammunition Background Checks to Confiscate Guns :: 05/28/2020

Since last July 1, California has required background checks for those purchasing firearm ammunition. As we noted, by December 2019 the state had run 345,000 background checks and rejected 62,000 Californians legally entitled to purchase ammunition, including off-duty sheriff’s deputies purchasing shotgun shells to hunt ducks. Officials blamed glitches in the system, but for Ari Freilich of the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, the system was working as intended, as a “red flag” law allowing seizure of weapons from those who have committed no crime. As it turns out, Freilich was on to something.


Potential Mass Shooter Stopped, No Red Flag Law Needed :: 05/28/2020

The state of California has never met a gun law it didn’t seem to like. That’s especially true of something like a red flag law. I mean, giving California an excuse to disarm someone? Sign them the hell up, am I right?


Stop Equating Opposition To Gun Control As Being Pro-Murder :: 05/28/2020

One thing I generally try to do, though I’m not always successful, is to try and at least understand where my opposition is coming from. On the subject of guns, I understand that most gun control activists really do believe that gun control will reduce violence somehow. I even understand the mechanisms they think it will put into effect to make that happen.


Story About 'Homemade' Guns Used In Crime Illustrates Rarity :: 05/28/2020

In recent times, there’s been a concerted push by many in the anti-gun community to put a stop to backyard builds. These so-called “ghost guns” keep them awake at night out of fear that someone, somewhere, might get a gun without begging for government permission first. We’ve had a lot of stories over the last few months about how the number of these so-called “ghost guns” showing up at crimes are increasing all the time.


How careless rhetoric will doom the second amendment. :: 05/27/2020

The rhetoric we use to discuss and debate a given subject is powerful, perhaps more so than any other aspect of a political battle. In the fight to win back our liberties from over a century of legislation, written to strip us of our right to keep and bear arms, we are losing. The question that must be asked is why? Most Americans do not even support stricter gun control, yet we are quickly losing in the context of legislation and in the culture war. The real engine behind the attack on our rights is the language used, not only by anti-gun activists and politicians but also by those of us who support gun rights.


Moms Demand Action Push Anti-Gun Agenda Through Food Banks :: 05/27/2020

Right now, a lot of people are hungry. People have lost jobs and the grocery stores are still not stocked like they were before the pandemic. It’s not a fun situation to be in for any of us.


Physician, Defend Thyself: Healthcare Workers Among First Time Gun Buyers :: 05/27/2020

We know that gun sales in the United States have been sky-high over the past couple of months, and anecdotally gun stores are reporting a huge number of first-time gun buyers. Who are these first-timers? At the Washington Free Beacon, reporter Stephen Gutowski has profiled a half-dozen new gun owners, including IT professional Scott Kane, who lives in the Bay area of California.


WaPo Editors Desperately Argue For SCOTUS To Ignore 2A Cases :: 05/27/2020

We’ve known for a while now that gun control advocates are terrified about the prospect of the Supreme Court getting ahold of another case dealing with the right to keep and bear arms. That’s why New York City changed a gun transportation law in a successful attempt to avoid Supreme Court scrutiny, and it’s why gun control advocates pleaded with lawmakers in Washington, D.C., and Illinois not to appeal adverse rulings in cases dealing with the right to carry in recent years.


Anti-Gun Op-Ed Impressive In How Wrong It Is :: 05/26/2020

The anti-gun arguments are tired for those of us who spend a great deal of time having to listen to them. They’re rarely new or interesting, but more impressive is how wrong they almost always are. Now, I get that some people in this day and age don’t believe in objective truth, but facts are facts. You don’t get to rework reality just to conform to your personally-preferred worldview.


Democrat-run Chicago sees deadliest weekend since 2015. So much for a lockdown and gun control. :: 05/26/2020

CHICAGO, IL – As this Memorial Day weekend comes to a close, we at Law Enforcement Today are reflecting not only on the men and women who lost their lives in service to our country, but also on the insane amount of violence that has taken place in a city with some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation.


Suicides not impacted by gun control laws :: 05/26/2020

It is only the last decade or two when those who want a disarmed population in the West have started to stress "suicide" as a reason for disarming the population.  The early pushes for population disarmament were predicated on the excuse of reducing violent crime, particularly homicides.
