WND Exclusive – The left’s despicable use of emotion post-Vegas

In the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre, it took only a matter of hours before the left sought to divide us, howling for gun control. But as we’ve seen many times before, they don’t care how it sounds or looks. They don’t care how caustic their rhetoric is. It’s all and only about advancing the agenda.

The overarching agenda of the progressive left, since its rise to prominence in the early 20th century, was/is to chip away at and eventually supplant the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence with their version of America. And they will seize any opportunity do so, regardless of how tasteless. read more

Podcast – Explaining Gun Control and the Second Amendment

by: the Common Constitutionalist

First, I apologize, but I had almost immediate technical difficulties, so the podcast, after the opening, is in audio only. Such is life.

In this podcast, I give conservatives and gun rights advocates a little additional ammunition (pardon the pun) to combat the left’s soundbite arguments for confiscating our guns (which is truly what they desire), as well as an explanation of both the amendment process of the Constitution and the Second Amendment itself.

It’s surprising how many on our side cannot effectively argue these points. I hope this helps. read more

The Left Can’t Wait to Confiscate

from the American Thinker:

Democrats Politicize Las Vegas before Blood Even Dry

Before the blood was even dry in Las Vegas, Democrats from coast to coast were pushing gun control. Hillary Clinton led the charge, finding time between fainting spells to tweet “Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.” (Translation: “Put your politics aside… and accept my politics! Oh, and my grief is never enough because I don’t feel any.”) But I guess, taking Rahm Emanuel’s counsel, leftists “never let a serious crisis go to waste.”

The waste, though, is that we’re even talking about this in a tragedy’s wake. But since the attacks have been launched, let’s discuss guns.

To use a twist on a Frédéric Bastiat line, the bad social analyst confines himself to the visible effect; the good social analyst considers not just the effects that can be seen, but those largely invisible and those that must be foreseen. Events such as Sunday’s massacre by murderer Stephen Paddock cannot be missed; they’re horrible, headline-making tragedies.

You May be a Conservative American

Scroll Down for Audio Version

You May be a Conservative American if:

You are wealthy, unapologetic and not racked with guilt.

You don’t believe you gained your wealth on the backs of the poor.

You are not wealthy, but want to be and don’t wish to rob or scam anyone to get that way.

You don’t feel guilty about wanting to keep more of what you’ve earned.

You don’t hate or wish to punish the people who have more than you, simply because they have more.

You are not a racist, but the left says you are.

You are not a homophobe, but the left says you are.

You are not a bigot, but the left says you are.

You are not a sexist, but the left says you are.

You are not transphobic, but the left says you are.

You don’t believe that because men should use the men’s room and women should use the lady’s room makes you transphobic. read more

Murders Continue to Escalate in Liberal Cities

Cities around the country are breaking records. Oh, it’s not for job growth, graduation rates or anything hopeful like that. They’re breaking records for documented homicides and shootings.

It’s gotten so bad that cities like Baltimore, in a desperate and dimwitted attempt to slow the number, have turned to calling for ceasefires. But like every other ceasefire, as those called for on several occasions between Israel and the Palestinian terrorists or those in Syria, the city ceasefires have worked out just about as well.

However pointless warring faction ceasefires are, Baltimore’s was much worse. Between nations or factions, the two sides at least publically feint at agreeing to halt the killing.

Baltimore community leaders had called for a 72 hour ceasefire this past weekend using the hashtag #BaltimoreCeasefire on social media. They received no affirmation of cooperation from anyone. Yet this they hoped would do the trick. Twitter “virtue signaling” always does. And by always, I actually mean never. read more

Video Podcast – Republicans Heart ObamaCare – A Second Amendment Victory

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Out and about in the forest, I speak to you regarding an article in the Conservative Review about the turncoat Rep

ublicans and their desire to maintain the status quo and yes – ObamaCare.

Walking the rails like a hobo, I discuss a recent lower court ruling that once again slapped down Washington D.C.’s latest attempt at a gun ban – this time on concealed carry. read more

Bloomberg Anti-Gun Group Can’t Count

 

from The NRA-ILA:

Gun Control Groups: Good at Gloating, Bad at Counting on Advancing National Reciprocity Effort

Apparently, Michael Bloomberg is good at counting money but not so good at counting votes. This week, Breitbart reported that Everytown for Gun Safety, Michael Bloomberg’s gun ban conglomerate, was claiming a “win” for congressional inaction on national right to carry reciprocity.

This just goes to show that not only do gun control advocates not tell the truth, they usually insist on telling the opposite of the truth. read more

The Right to NOT be Persecuted for being a Sheep Dog

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We know the saying that there are wolves, sheep and sheep dogs. Wolves are predators – thugs – criminals. Sheep are most people, helpless should a wolf attack. Sheep dogs are the brave men and women who defend the sheep from the wolves. And the question always asked is, which are you?

Quite frequently I get emails regarding updates and stories from the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA), because – ya know – I’m a gun nut who carries a weapon.

Often the stories involve the Second Amendment – the right to own and carry a weapon – because that’s what “Keep and Bear Arms” means.

However, I recently received an email recounting a true story of a man – USCCA Member David Jackson, a sheep dog, “who was forced to use his firearm to defend his family, who quite frankly, is the very reason he carries his gun in the first place.”

This got me thinking. Why is this even a story? It certainly shouldn’t be, except maybe one of congratulations to a man who defended himself, his family and all in his immediate circle of influence.

Here’s the USCCA recounting of the story. read more

A Federal Judge Actually Understands the Second Amendment

from The American Thinker:

A federal judge in San Diego has issued a temporary stay against a new California law that bans high-capacity magazines.

U.S. district judge Roger Benitez issued the preliminary injunction against the voter-approved law, writing that the law is likely to be unconstitutional because it prevents citizens from purchasing “whatever common magazine size [they judge] best suits the situation.” read more

Weapon Wednesday – Replacing the M4A1 Carbine

The M4A1 carbine is currently issued to U.S. Army combat troops worldwide. A descendant of the original M16 rifle, the M4A1 has a 14.5″ barrel, is chambered for the 5.56-millimeter round, and weighs approximately nine pounds when fully equipped with optics, lasers, foregrips, and other attachments. There are concerns in Congress, however, that the M4A1 could not penetrate modern Russian body armor, which is what prompted Milley’s comment.
