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

Podcast – Let’s Talk John Kerry, the Logan Act, and Dick’s Sporting Goods

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

By secretly and subversively negotiating with the terrorist nation of Iran, John Kerry is in clear violation of the Logan Act. Yet unlike many of Trump’s former associates, the FBI, Justice Department, the NSA and others don’t appear to wish to lift a finger to investigate or stop him. We are witnessing the unequal application of the law – again.

Gun manufacturer, Springfield Armory, announced it has severed ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods over their stance on guns, gun control and the Second Amendment. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the nation’s largest firearms trade association, has also, by unanimous vote, expelled Dick’s from membership in the organization. Good for both for taking a stand. read more

Americans Rally to NRA, Shatter 15 Year Fundraising Record

The National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund raised $2.4 million in March, marking its largest single month haul in at least 15 years.

The record fundraising total came during the first full month following the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, in February.

McClatchy reported that the tally was $1.6 million more than the NRA raised during the month of February and $1.5 million more than the group took in during March 2017.

The news service noted that most of the donations during March of this year — $1.9 million of the $2.4 million — came from small donations of $200 or less. read more

Video Podcast – Dick’s Caters to Those who Will Never Buy from Them

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Today I discuss the campaign by Dick’s Sporting Goods and its CEO Ed Stack to destroy or at least severely weaken their entire business – as they bow at the alter of leftist anti-gun nuts.

The company wide policy was/is to cease to sell semi-automatic rifles and accessories in any of their stores. The latest addition to this ridiculous policy is they now plan to destroy all the weapons and accessories they currently have in stock. Not give them to training facilities or anything reasonable. No – they are going to destroy them, and I’ll guarantee you the destruction will be on video, so that all the leftists who have never and will never shop at a Dick’s will applaud.

Yeah for Dick’s. But hey, as I explain – they are private company and can do what they want. – even ruin their business, forcing their employees into the unemployment line. read more

Video Podcast – Censorship, Gun Control and Red Flag Laws

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

A California man has been banned from Twitter after creating a video of himself shooting an effigy of Parkland student David Hogg for target practice. And he then wonders why Twitter pulled down the video.

Twitter had every right to yank what he calls “performance” art. But no one has the right to confiscate his weapons. He’s not a danger to society – he’s just a dope, looking for his 15 minutes of fame.

Yet this is what these new State Red Flag Laws seek to do. They begin as law for the “good of society,” but in time will further erode our natural right to keep and bear arms, as the State seeks to expand the law beyond its original intent. read more

Never Show off a Gun in Diner Filled with Leftists

It seems that yet another Republican has stepped in it and democrats intend to take full advantage.

How long will it be before spineless Republicans, cut Representative Ralph Norman (R-S.C.) loose before running for the tall grass?

In case you’re unfamiliar – here’s what happened.

Ralph Norman, as he has done in past, recently had a get together at a restaurant in Rock Hill, S.C., that he calls “Coffee with Constituents.” Among the “constituents” were women sporting bright red t-shirts emblazoned the words, “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.”

“Moms” was founded by an Indiana stay-at-home mom, Shannon Watts. It was quickly merged with billionaire Nanny-Stater Michael Bloomberg’s “Everytown for Gun Safety.” This new group launched, thanks to a $50 million donation from Nanny Bloomberg. read more

WND Exclusive – 1 State and 1 School Bucking Gun-Control Mania

Despite what they say, it’s understood what the left really desires. They do in fact want to confiscate our guns.

David Hogg, the new fresh face of fascism, even said so. “Yeah, exactly. It’s one of the loopholes, and we have to address those – a ban on high-capacity magazines and an assault weapons ban,” Hogg declared. So he doesn’t want to ban them all – just the scary ones – to start.

Oh, but it just got a lot worse. This past Tuesday, progressive leftist former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens let the cat out of the bag by proclaiming that he wishes to repeal the Second Amendment. read more

What Did and Did Not Stop the Maryland School Shooting

The Maryland school shooting has predictably NOT garnered a lot of main stream media attention. Tragically one girl did lose her life, but it would have been much worse had an armed resource officer not engaged the dirtbag shooter.

Fred, the joke man, has found for us a list of what did not prevent or stop the school shooting in the leftist State of Maryland.

Why Carry a Gun?

Another Pearl of Wisdom from Fred the Joke Man:

My old Grandpa said to me, “Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take a whoopin’.” I don’t carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the World.

I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry; I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared. read more
