DRGO: Virginia's Fact-Free Gun Zone :: 01/16/2020

If the Bloomberg-financed gun confiscation crowd gets anything right, it is its consistently beguiling messaging. In the same way that The Force in Star Wars bends the will of the weak-minded, confiscationists use language that requires us first to disabuse the public of their empty rhetoric before we can actually discuss the facts about firearms. In Virginia, the General Assembly has become not just a gun-free zone, but also a “fact-free zone,” rife with ad hominem attacks on law abiding gun owners.

Pennsylvania Push For Red Flag Laws Missing The Point :: 01/15/2020

Suicides Are Increasing In States With Red Flag Laws :: 01/15/2020

“Red flag” laws allowing for the seizure of firearms from individuals who’ve been deemed a danger to themselves or others may be politically popular (at least if you believe the polls), but are they actually effective? As I noted the other day, gun control groups pushing the gun seizure bills to disarm veterans claim that “firearm related suicides” declined in the state of Connecticut after the state implemented its red flag law back in 1999, but they leave out one very important detail.

Uh Oh: Gallup Sees Enthusiasm Gap On Gun Issue :: 01/14/2020

According to a new poll from the Gallup Organization, guns are a driving issue for voters in the 2020 election. That may not come as a surprise, given the intense backlash we’ve seen in states like Virginia where Democrats are giving gun owners a sneak peek at their plans for federal gun restrictions if they take power in 2020. What may be surprising, and certainly concerning, is that according to Gallup, Democrats view “guns” as more important issue than Republicans do by 20 points; 46% to 26%.
