Have you heard? There was another major city mass killing just yesterday. 33 victims are confirmed dead, and another 36 were injured, but the investigation is ongoing. Earlier in the day, the death toll stood at 23, but victims continued to be discovered.

The death toll is eclipsed by only two modern day mass-shootings in America – Las Vegas and Orlando.

But wait – you haven’t heard? How could there be a mass-killing of dozens without it being reported?

Witnesses claim that a man burst into the offices of an animation production company and started screaming “You Die!”

Again – how is it that we haven’t heard? read more

Just the Facts Ma’am – About the AR-15

In collaboration with my friends at GunPros.com, I bring you all an article dispelling some the myths of that evil “assault” rifle, the AR-15.

In this irrationally anti-gun climate, we need more non-partisan informative articles. I say non-partisan, because there is nothing partisan about facts and truth.The Best AR-15 Cover Photo

Demystifying the AR-15

Beloved by many, despised by many others, the AR-15 is the most controversial firearm in America. The gun’s notoriety primarily stems from its use in some of the deadliest mass shootings in United States history, including Parkland, Sandy Hook, and Las Vegas. Critics suggest that it is a military-grade killing machine that is too powerful for unrestricted civilian use, while the AR-15’s millions of owners suggest that its power is the exact reason why it is so valuable for self-defense and sport.

The frequent media coverage and controversy over the AR-15 have made it a symbol of the debate over firearms in America. But many people who are not members of the firearms community still know relatively little about it. What is it about the AR-15 that makes it so special—and so deadly?

The following article will give some background information about the AR-15, explain what makes it so effective, and point out some of the reasons why the gun has been wrongly vilified. read more

WND Exclusive – Should We Ban Dems from Speaking on 2nd Amendment?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

California representative Eric Swalwell is the latest empty suit to enter the presidential sweepstakes on the democrat side.

He evidently intends to make gun control – or rather, gun confiscation – his Numero Uno campaign agenda issue.

Last year Swalwell wrote: “An assault weapon, then, is a hand-held weapon of war, capable of spraying a crowd with more lethal fire in seconds. We should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons. The ban would not apply to law enforcement agencies or shooting clubs.” read more

Podcast – Taking Apart Bill Clinton’s Recent Gun Control Screed

This is something I received from the NRA Newsletter:

The NRA piece is entitled: “Heeee’s Baaack: Bill Clinton Peddles Gun Control on a Wish and a Lie.”

I discuss the various un-truths presented in an Op-Ed by Bill Clinton and a 1988 report presented by gun confiscation group, the Violence Policy Center. THE VPC piece, written some 31 years, is remarkably similar the arguments for gun control today. read more

House Passes Useless Gun Bill

from the Blaze:

House takes advantage of Dem majority to pass sweeping gun control bill

It doesn’t stand much chance with the Senate, or Trump

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill Wednesday that would require a federal background check for all firearms purchases, including those between private citizens, according to NPR.

The Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 passed 240-190. It is referred to as “bipartisan” because it has five Republican co-sponsors, and eight Republicans voted in favor of the bill in total. read more

Dick’s Continues Its Anti-Gun Message as Sales Continue to Decline

I hear Dick’s Sporting Goods is branching out. Now that they sell virtually no guns anymore at their “Sporting Goods” stores, they’ve decided to fill those empty shelves with scented candles, potpourri and dream catchers, in addition to camping and fishing equipment. And with every purchase during this holiday season, of $50 or more, the patron receives a free Michael Bloomberg, gun control bobble head. Well…that’s what I heard!

Obviously this is nonsense. I mean the scented candles, potpourri, dream catchers and bobble heads, not the fact that Dick’s Sporting Goods is yanking virtually every gun and all ammunition off their shelves.

Yes, Ed Stack, CEO of Dick’s, and his fellow corporate executives have decided they will no longer be the purveyors of any instruments of death. read more

Santa – Bring Me an Assault Rifle Before the Democrats Ban Them

A prologue from Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

If you’re a second amendment guy or gal, a hunter whose choice is a semi-automatic rifle instead of a bolt action, or just a gun enthusiast, you may wish to add something to your Christmas list this year.

Being that Santa Claus is most likely still coming to town – the dems haven’t taken over yet – you may want him to put an “assault” rifle under the Christmas tree, while he still can.

I have. Hopefully he’ll me bring the scary black, short barrel carbine on my list. I’ve been a good boy this year Santa. Oh please, oh please.

But why the urgency? Why is it imperative for Santa to come through this Christmas morning?

Well, it’s because the democrats are also coming to town. And unlike Santa, these leftists aren’t bringing joy to all the little girls and boys – or Moms and Dads, or any reasonable Americans.

For one of gifts they plan to give to the American people is a plan to enact shining new gun control legislation after they take over in 2019.

Gabby Giffords Gang Wants to Ban the AR-15

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

Remember former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. She was shot in Arizona back in 2011 by the piece of crap Jared Loughner. Ever since, she and her astronaut husband have been gun control advocates.

NRA.org writes: “When former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and husband Mark Kelly launched Americans for Responsible Solutions in early 2013, gun owners were assured that the group sought moderate “common-sense solutions” to gun violence.”

Giffords and Kelly explained, “We don’t want to take away your guns any more than we want to give up the two guns we have locked in a safe at home.”

Translation: We do want to take your guns away or at the very least prevent you from buying them. We’re just not going to be honest about our true intentions. read more

Gun Safes and Trigger Locks Defeat the Purpose of Home Defense Weapons

Yesterday the HuffPo continued its assault (pardon the pun) on guns by pretending to be reasonable. Something new for the Huffington Post. But it wasn’t really reasonable. It was just a veiled attempt of the unreasonable to sound reasonable.

The article ,posted as a result of the Santa Fe school murders, is entitled, “Texans On Both Sides Of Gun Debate Agree On Safe Storage, But Not On How To Support It.”

They write that the 17 year old took “his father’s pump-action shotgun and .38 revolver, concealed them under a trench coat and walked into an art class before opening fire on students, teachers and a responding school resource officer.”

They added that, “…people from across the political spectrum have stressed the importance of securing firearms to keep minors and others from getting ahold of them without permission,” and that, “If you’re a parent and you own guns, lock your guns safely away,” Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a staunch pro-gun Republican, said at a press conference on Friday. “It’s a serious issue and one big step we can take.” read more

Groundswell for Gun Confiscation Starts Here

from The Blaze:

‘I now actually do want to take your guns. All of your guns. Right now,’ magazine editor declares

Esquire’s editor-at-large penned a letter of sorts to the National Rifle Association and blasted the organization in the wake of the Santa Fe High School massacre in Texas.

In his Friday piece for the magazine, Dave Holmes accused the NRA of having “bought our government” and convincing its “members that the occasional school shooting, the odd literal slaughter of innocents, is an unfortunate but inevitable quirk of American life, a thing that is necessary to preserve freedom.” read more
