Barack Obama: Conservatives Are Winning Hearts and Minds on Second Amendment

success failure We know conservatives are winning because Obama admits to being a frustrated failure when it comes to getting more gun control. Since Barack Obama is admitting defeat, we know that conservatives are winning on the issue. As reported on BBC: “Obama admits US gun laws are his 'biggest frustration.'” They posted a nice video of Barack Obama’s full quote. Sadly, I couldn’t get the embed feature to work on my website. Newser.com summarized the story: “Obama: Gun Control Is My Biggest Frustration.” President Read more [...] Continue reading →

God and Guns

god and guns What does the Bible have to say about God and guns? Another tragic shooting took place last week. A 24-year-old Kuwaiti-born, Muhammad Youssef Adbulazeez, opened fire at two military facilities in Chattanooga Thursday, killing four Marines and injuring three others before dying from a gunshot wound. I think it is significant that this occurred on the eve of Eid, the biggest Mohammedan holiday of the year, which is the end of Ramadan. By the way Mohammedans supposedly get extra bonus points Read more [...] Continue reading →

Rethinking the Prison-Industrial Complex

prison bars hands While some Democrats are advocating prison camps, others are pointing out the prison-industrial complex is claiming too many Americans. Some conservatives think that drug laws are necessary and others have a more “libertarian” approach. But there is no way to deny that some of the penalties imposed have been insane. Weirdly, at the same time that a prominent Democrat is advocating “segregation” in camps for what amounts to pre-crime, many Democrats and Republicans are reconsidering the Read more [...] Continue reading →

Why Republicans Blaming Obama for Domestic Terrorism Will Probably Backfire

concealed carry The shooting of the four marines obviously indicates a problem, but blaming Obama gives him permission to exert power and end more freedoms. Is Barack Obama to blame for the ISIS attack that killed those four marines yesterday? I am sure he was. But the Republican attack on Obama is dangerous. According to the Washington Times, “Republicans blame Obama policies for rise in domestic terrorism.” President Obama called the murder of four Marines in Tennessee Thursday “heartbreaking” and Read more [...] Continue reading →

Restricting Guns to “Officials” Doesn’t Keep Us Safe

hoodie gunpoint A recent murder by an illegal immigrant should make people reconsider, not just immigration enforcement, but the value of restricting guns. From CNN: “Gun used in San Francisco killing belonged to federal agent, source says.” The shooting death of a San Francisco woman had already fueled a fresh round of fierce debate over U.S. immigration policies. Now a new detail in the investigation adds another dimension to the discussion. The gun used in the killing of Kate Steinle belonged to a Read more [...] Continue reading →

CNN Anchors Both Carry and It Saved Their Lives

concealed carry 5 If these CNN anchors had both been unarmed, they would probably be dead and we would be hearing more anti-gun news stories about it. Watch this one go down the CNN memory hole almost immediately. (They did feel compelled to acknowledge the story.) Former Headline News anchor—Lynne Russell—and her husband (a former CNN correspondent) BOTH carry concealed weapons, and had to use them to defend themselves against a violent thug. Here it is from KOAT.com: “A former CNN correspondent was Read more [...] Continue reading →

Black People Used to Shoot Back and It Wasn't a Big Deal

Pistol The Second Amendment was a help to black people during the civil rights movement. A few days ago I pointed out that it was wrong to act like it was controversial for African Americans to consider arming themselves in order to protect themselves from violent attack. The Second Amendment is for black people, white people, and every other color. Since then Reason.com has uncovered some material about the civil rights movement: Dylann Roof’s racially motivated murders of nine black churchgoers Read more [...] Continue reading →

More Junk Science for Gun Control

guns A study claiming to prove that Connecticut background check reduced the gun homicide rate by forty percent is junk science. Well, if the FBI can do it for the cause of disarming the populace, others can produce junk science too. One recent study has claimed to “prove” that Connecticut’s background check established in 1995 lowered the murder rate from firearms by forty percent. The Reason.com blog mentions five problems with the study. I thought the first one really showed how arbitrary Read more [...] Continue reading →

Knives Don’t Kill; People Kill!

Kitchen knives While the news seems like it must be satire, the British police really are offering amnesty for people who turn in their knives. Only two days ago I wrote about a vicious attack on an unarmed young man by a group of four with a machete. I argued that since laws against carrying guns meant that people could be attacked by long knives, like a machete, that such laws naturally demanded another set of laws banning knives. Then yesterday I saw this story at Countercurrent News: “British Police Read more [...] Continue reading →

Of Course, Black People Should Shoot Back!

07262012GunControl Mashable treats a hashtag campaign to get black people to arm themselves as if it is controversial. I guess this story is a sign of progress. But it contains such stupidity that it is hard to feel good about it. The article was posted at Mashable.com under the headline, “#WeWillShootBack wants black people to arm themselves in self-defense.” If you're afraid for your life, American citizens are told, call the police. But Taurean Brown, the black man who popularized the hashtag #WeWillShootBack Read more [...] Continue reading →

One Victim with No Handgun against Four Attackers with a Machete

machete Four Attackers and not one of them is in the hospital or the morgue with a gunshot wound! But the victim will probably have a hand amputated. The Blaze reports on what should be called “a Michael Bloomberg dream scenario”: “18-Year-Old Bicycle Rider in Critical Condition with Skull Fracture, May Lose Hand After Late-Night Machete Attack.” An 18-year-old bicycle rider was in critical condition and may lose a hand after four men used a machete to attack him in the street early Sunday, Los Read more [...] Continue reading →

Democrat Glad None of Dylann Roof's Victims were Armed

concealed carry He claims the “horror” would have been unimaginable if one or more of Dylann Roof's victims had been carrying. The Democrats continue to politicize the Charleston massacre by talking about guns. In fairness, I don’t have the full context. So maybe this Democrat strategist, Bob Shrum, was responding to something someone else said to make a case for gun ownership. But the Democrats were talking gun control talking points within hours of the bloodshed. So listen to what he said: As Read more [...] Continue reading →
