2nd Amendment Under Fire
The NAACP, the Nation’s oldest civil rights organization, is leading a charge to encourage lawmakers to introduce a set of legislative proposals to address what it believes are flaws in the legal system that led to the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin. “The killing of Trayvon Martin is a heartbreaking tragedy, but his […]
When it comes to restrictive gun laws, Chicago is a liberal utopia. Incidentally, it is also one of the most deadly and crime-ridden cities in the United States. But Chicago law enforcement officials, realizing that curtailing 2nd Amendment rights is not stopping deadly violence, have a new plan: They will send friendly letters to individuals […]
In February, Vice President Joe Biden said that Americans don’t need high-powered weapons for protection, because a shotgun will do just fine. In fact, Biden told his wife to fire a shotgun in the air if she was ever in danger at home. “If you want to protect yourself, get a double-barreled shot gun,” Biden […]
There have been a lot questions posed and comments made by pundits, the elected class and observers before, during and after the George Zimmerman trial that displayed an agenda on the part of some and a profound ignorance on the part of others. One of the worst is the question: Why was Zimmerman carrying a gun that night? Why indeed?
That the question would be posed by the gun grabbing punditry is not surprising. Their agenda is to muddle the understanding of the citizenry and create a sense that carrying a weapon is not only unusual, it’s downright weird. That the question would be repeated by the citizenry demonstrates the gun grabbers’ efforts have been successful and the citizenry is becoming increasingly ignorant.
In April, the small town of Nelson, Ga., passed an ordinance requiring the head of every household in town to own a gun and ammunition. Now the city is facing a Federal lawsuit filed by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, which alleges the law isn’t Constitutional.
There has been no shortage of knee-jerk idiocy on the part of American educators in the months since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. So, one lawmaker felt the need to introduce a proposal that would dissuade school officials from spreading irrational fear about gun imagery by blocking Federal funds.
Geo Gun Marker, a smartphone app created by Walkingtools, which describes itself as “a loose confederation of software and related art or education projects,” allows users to electronically log the locations of “potentially unsafe guns and gun owners.” A description of the app, available at the Google Play store, reads as follows: Geolocate Dangerous Guns […]
Libertarian activist and radio host Adam Kokesh released a video showing himself loading a shotgun in the middle of Freedom Plaza in Washington on Thursday with the Capitol building clearly shown behind him. “We will not be silent, we will not obey, we will not allow our government to destroy our humanity,” Kokesh said as […]
The Administration of Barack Obama remains hell-bent in its efforts to disarm American citizens, and the Administration’s gun-control efforts have benefited from a series of high-profile mass shootings carried out by deranged madmen. Still, the 2nd Amendment remains popular with a large contingent of the Nation’s population, which has helped thwart more than one legislative push for gun control.
The reason gun-control advocates have such a tough time lobbying for tougher gun laws is that they must base each of their arguments on flawed premises.
Before a number of highly restrictive gun laws take effect in Colorado, gun rights advocates in the State organized a Farewell to Arms festival last weekend in protest of the measures. A crowd of nearly 5,000 people gathered at the town of Glendale’s Infinity Park on Saturday afternoon in a last-minute protest against a new […]
