Latest News

New Details In Rittenhouse Shootings May Bolster Self-Defense Claims :: 10/05/2020

Attorneys for Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year old from Illinois who’s facing murder and assault charges in the shootings of three people during riots and unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin in late August, are scheduled to appear in court this week to fight the extradition of Rittenhouse back to Wisconsin to stand trial. The lawyers for the teenager have consistently argued that their client was acting in self-defense when he shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, and continued to act in self-defense when he was attacked by Anthony Huber and Gaige Grosskreutz as they pursued him as he was heading towards Kenosha police to turn himself in.


Swalwell Reminds Us That Democrats Won't Stop With A Gun Ban :: 10/05/2020

As Americans continue purchasing firearms in record numbers, anti-gun congressman Eric Swalwell is out with a new opinion piece calling for a ban and “buyback” of millions of legally-owned firearms, claiming that the measure wouldn’t violate the Constitution and would only cost a “pittance” in financial terms (though his proposed $17-billion price tag seems pretty steep to me, given the fact that it do far more to turn legal gun owners into criminals than it would to stop criminal acts of violence).


University That Punished Gun-Owning Chinese Immigrant Has Alleged Ties To China :: 10/05/2020

Academia is full of people who think the United States is a totalitarian dictatorship and will tell you so any chance they get. Of course, the fact that they can say it so loudly and not end up in a gulag is a pretty good indicator that they’re wrong, but they persist.


Despite Big Budgets, Police Are Catching Very Few Real Criminals :: 10/03/2020

In Tuesday’s debate, former vice president Joe Biden declared he was opposed to the “defund the police” movement. In a general election, this is not a terribly bold statement on Biden’s part. According to numerous polls, the public has little enthusiasm for sizable cuts to police agencies.


Ginsburg was a liberal politician disguised as a judge :: 10/03/2020

As a Supreme Court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg failed to distinguish between her previous role as general counsel to the ACLU and her role as a judge.


Slain Parkland Student Urges Gun Control In New Ad :: 10/03/2020

If Joaquin Oliver was alive, he would be getting ready to cast the first vote of his life next month. Instead, Oliver’s parents have created an avatar of their son to promote a pro-gun control message ahead of the November elections.


Small Town Editorial Places Onus On Guns On Wrong Group :: 10/03/2020

Kingsbury, NY isn’t a bustling metropolis. With just over 12,000 people, it usually skates below the national radar. Frankly, it’s too small for most of us to care about.


FBI Uniform Crime Report: Murders Down, Self-Defense Up in 2019 :: 10/02/2020

U.S.A.-( Armed private citizens fatally shot 334 people last year, continuing a gradual upward trend in the United States while the number of justifiable homicides by police declined, and murders also dropped, including those involving firearms, according to the FBI Uniform Crime Report (UCR) for 2019.


Media Smears Guns At Protests, But They Miss Something :: 10/02/2020

I’ve said before that the media isn’t our friend. When it comes to the Second Amendment, it’s best to view the mainstream media and all those who try to emulate it as hostile to our goals.


The Real, Constitutional Alternative To Red Flag Laws :: 10/02/2020

Red flag laws are bogus. The idea of taking guns away from people who haven’t been professionally evaluated solely on the say so of untrained and potentially biased people is an anathema to anyone who claims to value the United States Constitution.


This 2A Referendum Could Have A Big Impact On The U.S Senate :: 10/02/2020

Obviously the big story in the 2020 elections is the presidential race between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, and with the president testing positive for COVID-19 late Thursday, that’s not going to change anytime soon. There are a number of key elections for Second Amendment supporters beyond the race at the top of the ticket, however, and a Montana ballot referendum could end up having a big impact in a political race that could determine who controls the U.S. Senate.


Rally brings gun rights advocates to Pennsylvania Capitol :: 10/01/2020

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A smaller than usual crowd of a few hundred people rallied for gun rights on the steps of Pennsylvania's Capitol on Tuesday, an annual event that also was attended by a few dozen state lawmakers.


What Happens When A Prison Abolitionist Finds An Intruder In Her Bedroom? :: 10/01/2020

I’ve been writing quite a bit recently about the ideological struggles on the Left between the push for more gun control laws while demanding the defunding of police and even abolishing prisons, because I think this is a fracture point for the Democratic coalition that is only going to grow larger in the months ahead. If Democrats take back the White House and the Senate, they’ll be in a position to enact a sweeping gun control agenda, but every one of their new gun laws will create a new criminal offense that, by the terms of their own legislation, will rely on armed police officers to enforce and prosecutors to take to court. The end result would be more non-violent offenders being put behind bars for something that used to be protected by the Second Amendment. How would the defund police movement react and respond to that scenario?


Why Gun Controllers Refuse To Say When Enough Is Enough :: 10/01/2020

Gun control groups and their buddies who serve as fact checkers love to call out people like us when we say that a group or candidate wants to destroy the Second Amendment. With candidates, they’ll claim the candidate is only campaigning on specific policy proposals and to believe they want anything more is somehow wrong.


With A Biased Media, Don't Give Them An Excuse :: 10/01/2020

We on this side of the gun debate aren’t getting a fair shake from the media. That’s obvious to anyone who cares to look. The “news” is filled with “reporting” about “mostly peaceful protests” as buildings burn behind the reporters. They’re filled with all the anti-gun studies one cares to name, while any study that could be considered pro-gun doesn’t get a mention in most places.


18 of Top 20 cities with Projected Highest Murder Rates Have Democrat Mayors :: 09/30/2020

A New York Times report based on projections for 2020 shows 18 of the top 20 cities for homicides have Democrat mayors.


Media Delusional Over Mob Violence Claims :: 09/30/2020

In case you didn’t know it, the mainstream media wants you to think that President Donald Trump is bad. I’m pretty sure you already knew that, though. I mean, I know you understood what the media wanted you to believe.


The debate? Trump was great, Chris Wallace was a dreadful disgrace :: 09/30/2020

Chris Wallace's overt defense of Joe Biden throughout the debate on Tuesday night was so obvious, so blatant, he should be proscribed from ever "moderating" a debate again.


The FBI Crime Stat that Keeps Wounding Gun Control Lobby :: 09/30/2020

With this week’s release of the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report (UCR) for 2019, the gun prohibition lobby is once again faced with an uncomfortable truth: Their crusade to ban so-called “assault rifles” doesn’t pass the smell test.


Gun Control Groups All But Acknowledge Their Cause Is Losing :: 09/29/2020

Gun control and the support for it hit something of a zenith in the immediate aftermath of Parkland. However, unlike many times in the past, the furor didn’t die down after a few weeks or months. It looked like gun control was set to become a major battle during the presidential campaigns.
