The Latest Crime News Provides Evidence in Favor of Armed Citizens :: 02/05/2019

As lawmakers around the country moved to impose restrictions on the ability of law-abiding Americans to keep and bear arms, some of those same citizens spent the first month of 2019 proving that armed civilians play an important role in defending the inalienable rights to life, liberty, and property.

Assault Speech and Hate Weapons- the media spin that would make Orwell proud :: 02/04/2019

It is dangerous to let other people do our thinking for us. We seem certain we can define “hate speech”. We’re convinced that “assault weapons” are bad.  Both terms have been manipulated by politicians and the media to mean anything they want them to mean. We were sold such a twisted-logic of lies that it would be funny.. if it were not so dangerous.

Continental Rift :: 02/04/2019

Some of the theaters are predictable. It seems astonishing that New Jersey and California are still dreaming up new ways to limit the Second Amendment—and remarkable, too, that the courts have largely remained silent about their encroachments. Yet they most decidedly are dreaming up new ways to limit the Second Amendment.

Rural New York Paper Points Out Issues With State's Red Flag Law :: 02/04/2019

Wyoming County doesn’t have a lot of fans of New York state’s new gun laws. The county made that clear, and I applaud them for it. I hope it does more, such as what some counties in Washington state are doing. Maybe it will in time. Who knows.

Civil Disobedience Against Gun Control :: 02/02/2019

The word “Resist” seems to have become a liberal battle cry these days. But what most people don’t realize, and what the mainstream media avoids telling the public is that “Resist” is exactly what firearms owners have been doing for literally decades in the face of unconstitutional gun laws. The level of civil disobedience to arbitrary firearms regulation has been truly staggering – and not just in the United States.

Media Bias: The Rookie pushes gun buybacks, registration of guns, and shows an accidental gunshot killing a woman-CPRC :: 02/02/2019

In a series of scenes that could have been written by Michael Bloomberg, The Rookie tries making the case for gun buybacks and gun registration (S1, E11). The officers in this scene tell people that turning in their guns to police during the buyback will make the city safer. A woman is shown bringing in her father’s weapons, one of which is a Claymore mine. Other mines that were in the woman’s car explode while she is in the police station.

Common Semiautomatic Weapons Under Fire, from Democrat Congress :: 02/01/2019

New York – -(AmmoLand.com)-“It’s like déjà vu all over again.” ~ Yogi Berra  If you asked your fellow Americans to point to one defining moment in our Nation’s recent history, many would likely mention the attack on our soil in 2001, for obvious reason. Some Americans might point to Barack Obama as U.S. President, but not for anything he carried out—if he carried out anything of benefit to this Nation and its people—but because he served as the Nation’s first African-American President. Some people might mention the recession of 2008, and the bailout of major banks. Still, others might point to the result of the general U.S. Presidential election in 2016.
