There have been several mass shootings that were stopped by a good guy with a gun. We already know what happens when a shooter enters a gun-free zone and opens fire. He can keep shooting until the police arrives and by that time the casualty list is already long. Just look at Sandy Hook, the Aurora, Colorado, movie house and the recent shooting at the Oregon College. Police eventually got to the scene and stopped the shooter, but what if one of the intended victims had a gun. Lives could have been saved.
Democrat front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton made it official, by announcing plans to ratchet down on gun owners, retailers, manufacturers and gun shows a priority of her administration if she is elected to succeed Barack Obama.
Alan Gottlieb, head of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms predicted that Clinton’s statements on guns will energize the nation’s gun owners and get them to the polls. Looks like he may be right.
The national media and the Washington insiders from both parties can’t seen to figure out why the likes of Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, even non-conformist the likes of Senators Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz are resonating with so many voters. Yet the same voters from Portland, Maine to Portola Valley, California are making it known that same old, same old from inside the DC beltway simply isn’t going to fly anymore.
Case in point very well could be the latest from Vice President Joe Biden. First elected to the upper chamber of the US Congress in 1973, the former Senator from the Blue Hen State has long been considered the epitome of a DC insider. As reported by Charlie Spiering of the Breitbart.com news portal on Oct. 2, 2015, on the heels of the killings at the Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, the Veep called on more gun laws to be passed.
As we’ve noted hundreds of times here and at Examiner, liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate. Today’s example of unhinged liberal hate is brought to you courtesy of an online anti-gunner who thought it would be funny to create a video of Dana Loesch shooting herself in the head.
Loesch, for those of you who may not know, is a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. She’s even written a book on the topic, and is often the target of liberal hatemongers who apparently believe anyone who doesn’t think like them should die.
Pundits, liberals and RINOs are continually accusing Donald Trump of not providing specifics on the issues he champions. However, Trump was the first candidate to issue a policy paper on his immigration plan.
He was also the first candidate to define a specific policy. Now, Trump becomes the second candidate to define his policies with a new paper on the Second Amendment. Continue reading →
In August 2013, Mariano Meza-Rodriguez, a citizen of Mexico, was arrested for carrying a .22 caliber cartridge. Because he had no documentation to prove he was legally allowed to be in the U.S.; he was found to be in violation of U.S. law pertaining to illegals possessing firearms.
Undoubtedly, there are some who still cling to the idea that guns can’t be confiscated in America. Gun confiscation can and is happening in our nation. Listen people, the anti-gunners are working overtime to take away your Second Amendment rights.
If the headline of this article doesn’t convince you, then perhaps nothing will. There is a war on to take away your Contsitutional rights. The right to bear arms is something that our founding fathers established upon our nation’s framing. However, we have to stand up for our rights or watch them continue to evaporate.
California is serious about gun control. So serious that despite already boasting some of the most rigid gun laws in the country, the Golden State is now considering even stricter legislation. The New York Times reports that “state lawmakers are championing legislation that would permit law enforcement officials and private individuals to seek a restraining order from a judge that would keep people with a potential propensity for violence from buying or owning a gun.”
The legislation, known as a gun violence restraining order, would allow people to notify courts or law enforcement officials if they are concerned that a family member or friend is at risk of committing violence.
This doesn’t alarm people nearly as much as someone carrying a rifle into a restaurant.
The controversial open carry incident involving semi-automatic rifles in a Dallas, Tex. restaurant that led the restaurant chain ask people to not bring guns to their establishments is now garnering overwhelmingly negative reactions from gun-owning readers of a popular gun rights blog.
An unscientific poll started by the Guns Save Lives (GSL) shows nearly 85 percent of the respondents think carrying rifles into a restaurant is going to hurt the gun rights movement. Less than ten percent of the respondents think it will help, and between five and six percent aren’t sure.
Compounding the potential for a backlash was the image of two rifle-toting guys inside that restaurant. The image has gone viral, and is being used as an example of bad behavior by open carry advocates. Continue reading →
Liberal Seattle Times columnist Jerry Large ignited a firestorm with his suggestion that it is time to repeal the Second Amendment as the mechanism to reduce violent crime following three fatal shootings in the city in recent days.
Seattle Times readers did not react too well, and as the column gets wider readership on some of the gun forums, the backlash is building.
