2nd Amendment Under Fire
The results of a new poll from Gallup indicate that President Barack Obama’s push for stricter gun control may have actually led more Americans to feel that the Nation needs less strict gun laws.
The illegal usurper currently occupying the people’s house Tuesday night gave us yet another of his vacuous speeches filled with collectivist claptrap. The only notable thing he did say is that he intends to continue his imperial Presidency and ruling by fiat. And one of his aims is more gun control.
Last January, President Barack Obama and his fellow gun grabbers were buoyed by the massacre of 27 teachers and students at Sandy Hook Elementary School — an event that may or may not have occurred — and in the State of the Union address he mentioned guns and gun control seven times. For the gun grabbers, some kind of gun law seemed inevitable. But the American people had other ideas. They snapped up weapons and ammunition in record amounts and leaned on Congress to defeat all attempts at unConstitutional 2nd Amendment-restricting legislation.
A media company that owns dozens of newspapers in 12 States “considered” creating private “state-by-state databases” tracking “those who have the right to carry a concealed weapon” as part of its strategy to report on “the explosion of ‘conceal and carry’ gun permits” across the Nation.
Smith & Wesson announced Wednesday it will no longer sell its popular range of M&P (military and police) handguns in California, thanks to new gun-identifying regulations that are driving up manufacturing costs in the State while forcing more American citizens onto a registry that allows the government to keep track of their firearms.
Last year, NBC News anchorman David Gregory almost got in trouble with the law for waving a 30-round ammunition magazine in front of the camera during an interview with NRA leader Wayne LaPierre on “Meet the Press.” The show was being broadcast from Washington, D.C., where it’s illegal under local law to possess even an […]
A Florida man was traveling South with his family on the way home from a wedding in New Jersey when the Maryland Transportation Authority Police began tailing his Ford Expedition. After about 10 minutes, the police pulled him over and told him they knew he owned a gun. They demanded he produce it for them on the spot.
During an appearance on radio shock-jock Howard Stern’s show this week, movie producer Harvey Weinstein said that he’s teaming up with actress Meryl Streep to produce a feature film that will make gun enthusiasts, namely members of the National Rifle Association, “wish they weren’t alive.”
House Oversight Committee chairman Representative Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said that a recent news report outlines how the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) is using tactics that amount to “Fast and Furious revisited” in a bid to increase support for the Obama Administration’s gun control crusade. During a Sunday program on Fox News, Issa […]
Based on an analysis of background checks for gun purchases, political threats to Americans’ right to bear arms fueled an unprecedented uptick in firearm sales for 2013. And while government attempts to make it harder for American citizens to purchase firearms appear slated to continue, an ammo shortage spurred by new regulations and ongoing concern about legislative attacks on firearm ownership is likely the most tangible threat to the 2nd Amendment in 2014.
The number of criminal background checks conducted for firearm purchases increased for the 11th straight year in 2013, jumping by nearly 8 percent amid emotional calls for stricter gun control following a series of tragic shooting crimes. By the end of the year, the number of background checks had fallen, signaling that the gun-buying frenzy may be over for now.
On Friday, just three days into the new year, President Barack Obama signaled a renewed Administrative push for stronger gun control legislation as he announced two new executive actions designed to make it easier to clarify Americans as mentally ill for the purpose of revoking 2nd Amendment rights.
