BATFE Backs Off, Will Not Ban Bullets … For Now

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives has ended plan to ban bullets, or—more likely—has paused it. Last month Bob Allen wrote about how, “Banning Bullets Means Banning Guns.” The BATFE was trying to make ammunition for the AK-47 illegal. Thanks to the outrage, especially what was channeled through the NRA, the BATFE is backing down. The Washington Examiner reports in the Secrets column by Paul Bedard, “ATF waves white flag, kills AR-15 bullet ban in big win Read more […]

Banning Bullets Means Banning Guns

The Obama Administration has resorted to banning bullets, beginning with one cartridge. Eviscerating the Bill of Rights, one Amendment at a time! So reports the Washington Examiner: “Obama to ban bullets by executive action, threatens top-selling AR-15 rifle.” It’s starting. As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used Read more […]

Aussie Lectures Us Yanks About How Gun Prohibition is So Good

Australia now has much stricter gun laws because of a mass shooting, so Andrew Leigh, a member of the Australian House of Representatives, wrote in the Huffington Post about how this prohibition and gun buyback “reduced deaths.” Yeah, this is a real convincing piece. Overall, the firearms homicide and firearms suicide rates had been trending steadily downwards through the 1980s and early 1990s, but the fall accelerated after the buyback. Analyzing variations in the amount of guns turned in for Read more […]

Yo, Anti-Gun Morons, The NRA Already IS “The Black NRA” (with Postscript)

Black NRA from Sarah Silverman This video may be old news to you. But I just saw it start popping up for the first time in my Facebook feed via Upworthy. I didn’t know who Sarah Silverman was but, given the premise she thinks we all accept, I’m not impressed with her intelligence. Just think about this: The NRA is a gun lobby. It is powerful but it is also powerfully opposed. It never knows when a coalition might grow strong enough to stop it. What would the NRA think if every young Read more […]

Professor Calls for Murder of NRA Members’ Children

We’ve seen this one before. Remember the professor of history at the University of Rhode Island who tweeted that he wanted the NRA president’s “head on a stick?” After people accused Professor Erik Loomis of wanting to assassinate LePierre, the head of the NRA, he clarified, saying that it was only a metaphor. He tweeted:  “Dear right-wing morons, saying you ‘want someone’s head on a stick’ is a metaphor. I know metaphor is hard for you to understand.— Erik Loomis.” In another Read more […]

Two Colorado Anti-Gun State Senators Go Down in Recall Election

The Colorado recall election was successful. The president of the Senate in Colorado is John Morse. I should say, was the president of the state senate. He was the main push behind restricting gun freedoms for the people of Colorado. He is a Democrat. The people of Colorado wanted their Second Amendment freedom backs, so they mounted a recall election effort. The vast majority of the people in Colorado didn’t kill anybody. They aren’t murderers. Why should their freedoms be restricted because Read more […]

NRA T-Shirt Wearing 8th Grader Now Facing $500 Fine and Year in Jail

This is an update on 2 previous reports I wrote on Jared Marcum.  In April, Jared showed up at Logan Middle School in West Virginia wearing an NRA t-shirt that read ‘Protect Your Right.’  Below the text was an image of an assault-style rifle.  A teacher took exception to the shirt and told Jared to remove it.  When Jared refused, the principal was brought into the situation and Jared was eventually suspended from school and arrested for disrupting the educational process.

Liberals Want to Require Gun Liability Insurance

If you can’t register and limit guns; regulate and buy up all the ammunition or require law abiding people to buy gun liability insurance or some other add-on mandate. Liberals can always find ways to limit our constitutional freedoms while at the same creating freedoms that do not exist like killing pre-born babies and legitimizing and legalizing homosexual marriage. Gun liability insurance is the new anti-freedom legislation being proposed by a Democrat. New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney introduced 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 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 […]
