New Gun Restrictions for a New Year

It wouldn’t be a new year without a new set of laws aimed at making liberals feel less angsty about those scary guns the rest of America has. As per usual, every single one of the new gun laws was passed under the flag of “never again,” based on some media-hyped shooting, and as per usual, not a single one of the new laws would have stopped the incident that was its rallying cry. The big gun grab will be in California, where police will now be allowed to confiscate anybody’s guns for 21 days Read more […]

What if He Would Have Had a Gun?

James Vernon is 75 years old and teaches chess to children at his local library.  Last week, he jumped into action when an attacker threatened the children he teaches. According to The Pekin Daily Times: Sixteen children were getting a chess lesson from James Vernon in a room at the library when 19-year-old Dustin Brown allegedly came in with a hunting knife in each hand screaming that he was going to kill people. Vernon tells the Washington Post that one thought went through his mind: “This Read more […]

Violent Crime in Chicago on the Rise

The lingering effects of now-famous shootings in this country are definitely being felt.  In St. Louis, after Ferguson’s Mike Brown shooting, crime is running rampant.  Some say that crime was already on the rise in St. Louis before the Michael Brown incident, but even so, the Brown shooting seems to have started something. Police all over the country do their jobs differently after the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson and the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore.  And now, Rahm Emanuel, Mayor Read more […]

Gun Control Can’t Keep Us Down

While liberals in Washington are blaming every school shooting and violent crime on the lax gun control laws in the land, courageous private citizens are proving that they can hold their own in protecting themselves and their property even without the aid of guns. When Indianapolis resident Karen Dolley found an intruder in her home, she intended to use her gun to protect her person and her home,  but she couldn’t find it.  So then, she fell into skills she learned earlier in her life through Read more […]

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 […]

Democrats Want Ban on Online Ammo Purchases

Scratch a Democrat, find a pro-government, anti-citizen gun grabber. How many times have we heard the false mantra that restricting legal sales of guns or ammunition will “save lives”? They’re at it again. After the recent defeat of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ attempt to reclassify common ammunition for the AR-15 as “armor piercing,” Democrats have regrouped and are rallying around the Stop Online Ammunition Sales act, proposed by Bonnie Watson Coleman. The Read more […]

Rapper Facing Life in Prison for Album Lyrics and Cover Art

When he was asked about a rapper facing life in prison, the deputy district attorney, Anthony Campagna, pointed out that, on the album cover, “there is a revolver with bullets.” I hate lots of violent and degrading music. But the idea that someone should spend his life in prison for it is nuts! And it is illegal. Like it or not, the Constitution forbids it. When I saw the headline, I assumed that the man had crossed the line and actually threatened somebody. That would indeed be Read more […]

Elected Official Wants Gun Owners’ Homes Raided

There’s a good reason that background checks and gun registration laws are bad ideas, and that reason’s name is Swampscott, Massachusetts Selectman Barry Greenfield. Greenfield is one of those little tyrants who apparently believes that government exists to keep you in line. He recently came out in favor of a measure that would allow law enforcement to come snooping around the homes of legal gun owners any time they please. It’s all in the public interest, naturally. Greenfield said that Read more […]

Eric Holder Doesn’t Care About Chicago Murders

In his speech to the black sorority Delta Sigma Theta in D.C., Eric Holder said that he was resolved to combat violence directed at youths in light of the Zimmerman verdict:  “We are resolved, as you are, to combat violence involving or directed at young people, to prevent future tragedies and to deal with the underlying attitudes, mistaken beliefs and stereotypes that serve as the basis for these too common incidents. And we will never stop working to ensure that – in every case, in every Read more […]

Police Back Gun Ownership, not ‘Assault Weapon’ Bans

Further exposing the liberal excuses for gun control as a pack of lies, a new poll of 15,000 law enforcement professionals found that 71 percent agreed that an “assault weapons” ban would have no impact whatsoever on crime. With Democrats crying that they only want gun control to prevent any more shootings like those at Sandy Hook Elementary, this poll should be a pin in the Obama Administration’s balloon. It won’t be, of course. Expect the media to hit the ignore/snooze button and let this Read more […]

One Of Bloomberg’s Own Arrested On Gun Charges

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is the most anti-gun person I have ever heard of.  It seems the very mention of a private citizen owning a gun sends him into fits of rage and verbal attacks that remind one of Adolf Hitler.  In fact, some of Bloomberg’s policies and actions also remind me of Hitler. In his crusade against guns, Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino launched a campaign in 2006 called Mayors Against Illegal Guns.  The organization of city mayors supports most gun control Read more […]

Flooding the Country with Ignorance

Maybe it was a challenge to see how many non-truths he could pack into one article, but Eric D. Snider’s diatribe about guns in movies at the Film.com website is filled with them. Of course, I never miss the opportunity to be informed about the American gun culture by a “prolific film critic,” especially when that same critic believes that the NRA (National Rifle Association) is dedicated to “flooding the country with guns.” And this comes in the very first paragraph. I knew I was in for Read more […]
