2nd Amendment Under Fire
The 2nd Amendment is on quite a winning streak. On Monday, U.S. District Judge Timothy L. Brooks ruled in favor of the people and struck down Arkansas’ concealed carry law that banned legal resident aliens from obtaining licenses to carry concealed carry weapons.
Second Amendment Foundation Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb called it “yet another victory in [the] effort to expand 2nd Amendment protections in the U.S.” Unfortunately, he did not note that the victory will not be complete until the oligarchy recognizes that the only permit needed is the 2nd Amendment itself.
The U.S. Supreme Court reaffirmed its ongoing hands-off stance on taking up cases involving 2nd Amendment rights today, declining without comment to hear a New Jersey case that challenges the Constitutionality of a State law forbidding lawful gun owners from carrying their firearms in public. In passing on the highly scrutinized case, Drake v. Jerejian, the […]
The Missouri State Legislature is on the verge of forwarding a bill to Democratic Governor Jay Nixon that, if signed into law, will nullify virtually all Federal gun laws while asserting the State’s rejection of “unlimited submission” to Federal powers not enumerated in the Constitution.
Self-proclaimed urban gun enthusiast Colion Noir explains that Americans can’t have a meaningful discussion about guns because the “political gang leaders” tell members of both parties what they are supposed to think rather than allowing for independent observation.
Gun sales are illegal in Chicago, therefore the city is safer. That, of course, isn’t true. And despite Chicago’s tough on guns policies, the city routinely ranks among the top for violent crime. Still, murder rates have reportedly been falling in the city in recent years; and some conservatives have suggested that the most recent […]
Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s newest anti-gun initiative Everytown For Gun Safety was recently parodied in a public service announcement that was designed to look like it was created by a person with very little understanding of how firearms operate. Pro-2nd Amendment groups who set up a spoof Facebook page resembling Bloomberg’s effort fooled the Internet with […]
Senator John Cornyn is concerned that the Department of Justice is doing the legwork ahead of an executive order mandating that firearms be equipped with technology to identify authorized users via biometric technology such as fingerprint recognition.
Michael Bloomberg, whose continued corporeal existence now represents his last remaining obstacle to entering into Heaven, has launched a fresh gun control campaign featuring a tragic scenario that, according to the television spot, happens “all the time” throughout America. The ad, a vehicle for a new gun control group Bloomberg founded called Everytown for Gun Safety, plays out […]
A new study published in the journal Applied Economics Letter reports that States with “shall issue” concealed carry laws have lower rates of homicides with firearms than States with strict concealed carry laws. Study author and economist Mark Gius also determined that bans on so-called “assault weapons have no statistically significant effect on the rates of homicides involving guns.”
Yet, despite this evidence and despite empirical evidence out of Washington, D.C., Chicago and Massachusetts, which all saw their homicide rates rise after strict gun control laws were passed or gun bans were implemented, the Barack Obama regime continues its assault on the 2nd Amendment.
MONTPELIER, Vt. — A bill that passed the Vermont House without controversy is now in doubt after gun-rights advocates exposed provisions allowing police to take guns during domestic disputes. “It’s a highly illegal confiscation bill,” Gun Owners of Vermont president Ed Cutler told Vermont Watchdog. “H.735 is a forfeiture bill that tells police if a […]
