Second Amendment Continues to Rise amid Government Opposition

While politicians get more vocal against the Second Amendment, the people aren’t buying it—they’re buying guns instead! The trend Mark Horne posted about in April was accompanied by a failure of anti-gun politicians in curbing gun ownership. That trend was a rise in gun purchases, demonstrating that the massive anti-gun propaganda push is entirely backfiring. The more the government makes people feel unsafe due to gun violence and unsafe because of the threat of prohibiting the acquisition Read more […]

Credit Card Processor Drops Gun Shop for Selling Guns

The credit card processor, a subsidiary of Visa, has decided to drop one of its clients for being in violation of their service agreement. What was their “violation?” They sell guns.

Virginia: Gun Sales Up, Crime Down

If they turned in an “assault” weapon, they got $200. Police gave out $100 to anyone who turned in a handgun, rifle or shotgun. People even got $50 for guns that didn’t work. And the whole program is anonymous. There are “no questions asked.” That means if you committed a crime with a gun, you could turn it in, get money for it, and Read more […]

Gun Violence Rising In the Media, Not In Reality

An increase in reportings by the media of gun-related violence does not mean that there has been an actual increase in incidents. In fact, violent crime in the U.S. (murder, rape, robbery and assault) actually went down four percent in 2011 compared with the previous year. It’s been going down for the past six years, and last year was the lowest it had been since 2006. It’s dropped twelve  percent since then. Naturally, since the Left will never concede intellectually on the gun control debate, Read more […]
