L.A. Governor Makes Gun Owners into Criminals

gun_control Soon, gun owners will be liable to have their gun magazines confiscated from them. The problem with being  law-abiding gun owners is that the government can keep changing the law. In such a case, being “law-abiding” simply means adept and willing to follow whatever orders are given by politicians. Guns.com has posted a pretty sad story, reporting, “Los Angeles Mayor signs confiscatory magazine ban into law.” In 60 days, there will be no such thing as a legally grandfathered civilian-owned Read more [...] Continue reading →

On Second Amendment, Progressives Just Make It Up As They Go

guns Progressivism has always depended on the destruction of American traditions and culture to advance its agenda. It has to, because it's American individualism that stands in the way of the collectivist worldview. As such, one of the highest priority targets for the Left is gun rights. The number of laws, regulations and roadblocks covering an individual's right to bear arms is well-known, as is the ineffectiveness of gun control at stopping crime. As preventing criminal violence is the primary Read more [...] Continue reading →

People Rally to Protect Neighbor from Gun Confiscation

Declaration of Independence with Gun This wasn’t merely a “protest” against gun confiscation, but a preventative action—a rescue. Last Memorial Day Bob Allen wrote about what needs to happen for us to avoid a fascist future: Those who take orders from government authority must be unshakably committed that there is a higher authority than the one passing down orders. In America, those higher authorities—even above the President—are the Constitution, and God Himself. Until soldiers, and Marines, and police officers, Read more [...] Continue reading →

Colorado Concealed Carrier Brings Gun to a Knife Attack

concealed carry Even though he was at a church, this concealed carrier was prepared to save a woman’s life. While Colorado has been a place of intense attacks on the Second Amendment, a woman is alive today because of a concealed carrier in Boulder. The Daily Camera reports, “Boulder police: Armed witness rescued woman from attempted murder outside church.” An enraged drunken man had a knife to his estranged wife’s throat as she said what she thought was her final prayer before dying. He had already Read more [...] Continue reading →

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 →
