2nd Amendment Under Fire


Newspaper Treats Gun Owners Like Perverts

Newspaper Treats Gun Owners Like Perverts

Thousands of Americans were shocked and angered at one New York newspaper’s attempt at Orwellian vilification of gun owners after it published an online database of gun-permit holders in its locale in the wake of the Connecticut Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy.

Guns Save Lives

Guns Save Lives

Don’t believe the hype from liberals or the media. The fact is: GUNS SAVE LIVES. But, every time there’s a crisis, politicians learn the wrong lesson… come up with the wrong solution… and always use the crisis as a reason to take away our freedoms and grow government bigger.

The 2nd Amendment Is Clear, The Founders Meant It

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” -2nd Amendment

Infringe— to encroach upon in a way that violates law or the rights of another. (Merriam-Webster)

Gallup: Americans Have Mixed Feelings About Guns

Gallup: Americans Have Mixed Feelings About Guns

A recent Gallup poll shows that Americans are more likely to favor an increased police presence at schools, increased government spending on mental health screening and treatment, and decreased depiction of gun violence in entertainment than assault weapons bans to prevent mass school shootings.

Media Blame All But The Guilty

Media Blame All But The Guilty

Soon after the details of Adam Lanza’s heinous and purely evil criminal actions at Sandy Hook Elementary School were revealed, Americans largely decided that the political conversations that would inevitably result should be held off until the small bodies of the vile murderer’s victims had at least been removed from the school. Now comes the blame game.

Appeals Court Strikes Down Illinois Gun Ban

A gun-grabbing Illinois State Senator spent the evening of Dec. 5 in the hoosegow after he was caught trying to board an airplane while carrying a gun.

Senator Donne Trotter of Chicago, who has long fought concealed-carry legislation in the State and is an ardent gun control activist, had a .25 cal. Beretta and a magazine containing six rounds in his garment bag. He told authorities he had worked late as a security guard the previous night and packed his bag early Wednesday morning, forgetting he had the gun in the bag. Trotter works for a security firm and has permits and licenses — that most Chicagoans can’t get — to carry a firearm for his work.

Feinstein Aiming For Your Weapons

In September, anti-gun zealot Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) told California delegates she would introduce “an updated assault weapons bill” in the coming Congress.

Last week, Shootingwire.com reported that Feinstein’s legal staff had met with Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives staff to discuss what the bill will look like. If his sources are correct, her bill will be the most egregious assault on the 2nd Amendment in the country’s history.

‘Violence Tax’ Just Another Attempted Gun Grab

Illinois gun grabbers are getting creative in their efforts to make one of the most restrictive gun law States even tougher on legal gun owners.

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle is considering imposing a “violence tax” on guns and ammunition. The county encompasses Chicago, which has seen murders rise by 25 percent this year, according to recent police statistics.

Will The Assault Weapon Ban Return?

Tomorrow marks the eighth anniversary of the expiration of the Federal assault weapons ban put into place in 1994 by the Administration of President Bill Clinton. And even after eight years, the fight from anti-gun lobbies to reinstate the ban is still full force.

Last week, the Democratic Party included in its platform — just as it has every four years since the ban expired — a commitment to reinstating the ban that disallowed Americans the right to legally own certain semi-automatic rifles and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

Own A Handgun? You’re Probably A Mass Murderer

Currently, Americans are being bombarded by news reports about psychopathic villains who, enabled by the 2nd Amendment, are killing innocent people at random.

The media narrative is strong and makes public enemy No. 1 not so much the disturbed individuals carrying out the brutal attacks as it does the weapons and accoutrements they have used in the commission of the murders.
