Gov. DeWine threatens to veto self-defense law as crime skyrockets in Ohio
by: Brent Smith
Biden’s gun control/confiscation platform is a thing of beauty … if you’re a statist authoritarian.
He wants to hold gun manufacturers accountable for shootings and other gun grimes. He wants to get those weapons of war off our streets.
He wants to everyone through a national gun registry, confiscate “assault weapons” and extort States into adopting “red flag” laws.
Biden will institute a gun buy-back that will not be optional and end all online sales of guns, ammo and all accessories.
And the kicker is he will make Beto O’Rourke his anti-gun Czar.
It’s that just grand?! read more

NRA fires back at Michael Bloomberg’s misleading gun control ad with powerful ad of its own
The National Rifle Association on Sunday issued a fierce response to Michael Bloomberg’s misleading gun control ad that aired during the Super Bowl.
The misleading ad claimed that 2,900 children die from gun violence every year. However, as Washington Free Beacon reporter Stephen Gutowski noted, almost half of those “children” are actually adults ages 18 and 19. In fact, the ad merely cites misleading data from Bloomberg’s gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety. read more

No Audio Version
It’s dawned on me what should be the most obvious argument for the individual right to “keep and bear arms.”
The primary purpose of the 10 Amendments that form the Bill of Rights is to protect the natural rights of the individual from an encroaching federal government function. The only way someone would not know this is if they have not read them.
In fact, each of the Bill of Right’s 10 Amendments, of which there were originally 17, states this by use of the words person, people, owner, or accused. The only two that do not expressly state the individual are the 7th and 8th. They do however use inference to make the point that both pertain to the individual.
So when a leftist begins to spout off about the Second Amendment, that it applies only to militias, we must remind of them of this. If necessary, review each of the 10 and it will become clear that the founders did not intend for nine of the 10 to pertain primarily to the individual and yet single out just the Second as not having any individual protection component. It defies logic. But then so does liberalism. read more

California’s LGBT Agenda
California lawmakers passed a resolution this month telling “religious groups” — including Christian pastors and churches — to “embrace” the LGBTQ worldview, even if it contradicts the moral values of those religious groups.
Acceptance and tolerance are no longer enough. And so-called conversion therapy should not be allowed. So say the leftists who run California.
Virginia to be pushing for Gun Confiscation
Now that voters have seen fit to turn Virginia blue, the Governor and legislature is wasting no time reintroducing 8 anti-guns bills. Among them will be to confiscate assault weapons (to start) and the infamous Red Flag law.
Congratulations Virginia – you get what you deserve. read more
Former Army Ranger John Lovell and Evan Temple of the Warrior Poet Society talk about a subject that has come up quite often recently. As the democrats ramp up their hysteria over guns, more and more are calling for confiscation.
With threats like this, the conversation can quickly turn to whether or not one might voluntarily surrender his or her weapons and then to the ultimate nightmare scenario of possible civil war in America.
They offer a great perspective. Enjoy the video: read more
from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
As a rule, I don’t call for mass boycotts. You’ll never see me on social media calling out some business I feel has somehow wronged me and soliciting others to protest or stop patronizing XYZ Inc.
But I’m making an exception in the case of Walmart.
Normally, I just don’t feel that strongly about these types of things. Businesses I choose to patronize is personal, and my idea of a boycott is to just halt my patronage – either permanently or until the store or chain in question rectifies the situation to my satisfaction.
Last year, because of Target stores’ new “trans policy,” which allows men who dress up as women to use the women’s changing rooms, I decided never to darken the door of another Target. I thought it ridiculous for a major chain store to cave to a radical fringe element that encompasses a fraction of a fraction of our population. That, and the whole transgender thing is crock.
But Target is a private company, and if its powers-that-be decide to kowtow to every whacky group out there, it’s their decision. read more
Still Love me some Ted Cruz!
from the Daily Caller:
Alyssa Milano Asks Where The Bible Says Gun Ownership Is A ‘God-Given Right’ — Ted Cruz Shows Her
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz gave actress and political activist Alyssa Milano a quick Bible study and lesson in self-defense Monday.
After Milano asked where the Bible justifies gun ownership, Cruz provided a direct response from the Scriptures while also reaching to the United States Constitution and American history to demonstrate why self-defense is both morally and biblically sound.
