The SCOTUS Suppressor Decision :: 06/11/2019

The Supreme Court declined to take up an interesting gun case on Monday, and the Leftmedia, as usual, is peddling fake news about it.

The Surprising Forces Behind Mass Murder in the US :: 06/11/2019

After the recent shooting in Virginia Beach, Democrat politicians said US gun owners were causing mass murder. Biased journalists said the same thing, and both of them are fantastically wrong. The real mass murderers are the people who claim to be for “gun safety”. The results are shocking once you look at the data and once you uncover a few facts. Unfortunately, our biased media is spewing spin rather than truth.

Uh, Excuse Me Senator, What You Just Said About Bump Stocks Was A Straight Lie :: 06/11/2019

Okay, PolitiFact, you may have flagged my story about the media being silent about 18 migrants dying under the custody of border enforcement authorities under the Obama administration; they thought we had said 18 children, which would’ve been inaccurate—but that really wasn’t an issue because that’s made clear in our headline.

BARR: Northam Genuflects To The Gun-Control Movement :: 06/10/2019

In a move to burnish his already well-known anti-firearms credentials, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has unveiled a list of gun control measures he will press the commonwealth’s legislature to adopt in a special session as early as late June. Predictably, his proposals miss the mark widely.

College Suspends Student Over Gun Range Photo :: 06/10/2019

For many gun owners, going to the range is like going to the grocery store. It’s something we do so often it elicits little reaction on our part. Don’t get me wrong, all of those folks–myself included, to be fair–enjoy the range. It’s just not an event that requires a great deal of documentation.

NY Story Proves Gun Licensing Isn't Just Wrong, It's Evil :: 06/10/2019

Gun licensing schemes, such as those being advanced by Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) in his presidential campaign, require you to obtain a license prior to getting a firearm. It doesn’t matter how you obtain it, either. If someone’s going to give it to you as a gift, you still need a license.

DRGO: Why Does the Second Amendment Refer to 'The People'? :: 06/09/2019

Madison’s draft of the Second Amendment declares that “the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”.  He could have left out “of the People” without loss of meaning if he intended to guarantee that natural right to all.

Pittsburgh Mayor Wants Pension Fund To Divest Of Gun Stocks :: 06/09/2019

The purpose of a pension fund is to, ultimately, invest money so that retirees have sufficient funds to enjoy the rest of their days. They’re not supposed to be political arms or used to try and exert financial pressure on certain industries.

Pro-gun physician's group advises: Gun owners do NOT have to reveal info about their firearms to their doctors if asked :: 06/08/2019

(Natural News) One of the Left’s most recent efforts to circumvent your right to keep and bear arms, as guaranteed by the Second Amendment, is to have your personal physician inquire about guns in the home, which he/she will then document on medical records that are increasingly becoming computerized, and, thus, available to government snoops via database sharing.

SULLUM: 'We must act now' is not a gun control policy :: 06/08/2019

If you are the sort of person who feels compelled to demand new gun control laws after a mass shooting, you have several options. You can keep your recommendations vague, letting your audience fill in the blanks; push the policies you always push, regardless of whether they have anything to do with the latest outrage; or latch onto a detail of that crime, inflating its importance to support a seemingly germane solution.

ABC News Admits Gun Laws Wouldn't Necessarily Stop Mass Shootings :: 06/07/2019

Anti-gun activists always kick it into high gear in the aftermath of a mass shooting. Their response is downright ghoulish in how they ignore the horrors of what happened so that they can get a jump on scoring political points. Most of the time, even a witless fool could see that the measures they’re proposing would have no impact on the shootings, but still, they persist.

Fewer than Half of Violent Crimes Are Solved in America :: 06/07/2019

One of the central arguments in favor of the government's monopoly on police powers is that government police are essential in "keeping us safe." Without this "thin blue line" between chaos and order, we are told, society will descend into chaos.

John Lott: After Virginia Beach shooting, Dems seek ban on 'silencers' that don't make guns silent :: 06/07/2019

Despite what you might believe from watchin­g television shows or movies, suppressors (commonly known as “silencers”) do not make guns “silent” — unless you consider an ambulance siren or a jackhammer to be silent.

Why Gun Ownership Rates Tell Us Little About Homicide Trends in America :: 06/07/2019

Every time a homicide committed with a firearm makes the national news, it happens like clockwork: a variety of pundits in the corporate media quickly pen columns advocating for ever broader and stricter gun control laws. If only government agents were entrusted with a strict monopoly (or near-monopoly) on firearm ownership — we are told — then the United States would have much lower homicide rates similar to those found in most other so-called "developed" countries like Norway or Canada.

Why Magazine Restrictions Are Useless For Preventing Mass Shootings :: 06/07/2019

In the wake of any number of mass shootings, from Virginia Beach to Sandy Hook, there tends to be a call for magazine restrictions by those so inclined to push for gun control. Their thinking apparently is that if you restrict the number of rounds in the weapon, you can mitigate the amount of carnage at these shootings.
