2nd Amendment Under Fire
Gun barrels were still warm and smoking and blood was still flowing from the bullet wounds inflicted by Aaron Alexis at the Washington Navy Yard when the gun grabbers began calling once again for a ban on scary-looking guns. One problem: No scary-looking AR-15 was used in the shooting.
It could be the innocent product of overzealous editing, or it could be intentional. Either way, a high school textbook supplement has a lot of parents upset for what it’s telling students about the meaning of the 2nd Amendment.
The Denton, Texas, Unified School District adopted the book, United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination, as a supplement to a larger course of study for students aiming to ace the AP U.S. History test to jump-start their college careers.
Following the shooting tragedy that occurred at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, some top Democrats wasted no time in calling for a renewed Congressional fight for tougher gun control laws. But on Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said that gun control legislation doesn’t have the votes to be approved by the Senate. Therefore, […]
Backers of the successful recall of two Colorado State Senators are pledging to continue fighting for the repeal of the same gun control laws that led to the two Senators’ ouster, following their support of the anti-2nd Amendment legislation earlier this year.
On Tuesday, both of the Colorado State Senators who faced a voter recall — a culmination of massive public backlash over their support of new, unConstitutional gun control legislation — lost their jobs. Democrats quickly demonstrated they’d learned absolutely nothing from the grassroots-bred ouster.
Tomorrow’s the day when two Colorado State Senators will find out whether their support of new, controversial gun laws adopted earlier this year will put a major damper on their own political careers.

The 2nd Amendment is in serious trouble from the gun grabbers. You have seen the overt way in which they have attacked the right to keep and bear arms through efforts to pass a ban on so-called assault weapons and through President Barack Obama’s executive orders that infringe on the right.
The White House announced Thursday that President Barack Obama will implement a series of new gun control provisions via executive order. The unilaterally imposed gun control measures will limit the import of military surplus weapons and close a loophole that allows members of trusts and corporations access to weapons without a background check.
Harvard University has released a study on whether it’s possible to discern patterns of cause and effect between gun ownership and the incidence of violent crime. Study authors Don B. Kates and Gary Mauser did find such a relationship: an inverse one. The study, called “Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?” compares data on […]
The National Rifle Association has been a steadfast vocal opponent to any gun-control proposal that involves a national gun owner database. But a report published by BuzzFeed on Wednesday indicates that the gun lobbying organization has compiled its own gun owner registry.
