Video Podcast – Trump Rejects UN Arms Treaty

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

So President Trump gave his fifth consecutive speech at the annual NRA convention. And he, as he always does, got a warm welcome and raucous applause.

At one point he opened a binder, took out a pen, and signed, in front of the crowd, his rejection of the United Nations “Arms Trading Treaty.” Or ATT

Yay for him!

The treaty is just another way to under our Constitution and the Second Amendment.

Regretfully, the weather did not permit me to discuss Mayor de Blasio’s New Green Deal for NYC. 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

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

Ollie to Head up the NRA

Oliver North has made a career, post military, of irking liberals. Now, as if he couldn’t get more loathsome to leftists, he accepts the position of the next NRA president. Hooray for Ollie and good on the NRA!

Retired Marine Lt. Col. and Fox News Contributor Oliver North has been named the next president of the National Rifle Association. He is expected to step down from Fox and take the new post within a matter of weeks. 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

A Walkout Based on Lies

Guest Post by: John Velisek USN (Ret.)

Thursday was a student walkout of over 3000 schools throughout the country as a way to show deference to the students murdered by a crazed gunman is Parkland Florida. This is a major story as it should be, but the reasons for the walkout mutated to nothing more than another reason to bash the NRA and innocent gun owners throughout the country.

The main premise, which was covered almost 24/7 by most of the progressive mainstream media, focused on the major issues that those in charge see them since the shooting. Guns are bad, assault weapons which are fluid in their definition at best, are worse, and the NRA are boogeymen who must be eradicated in any way possible.

Let’s talk of those really in charge of this whole show of concern and outrage. The Women’s March, Media Matters and ultimately George Soros have combined to organize all this. The teachers union comprised of forced dues-paying members and progressives who use the opportunity to instruct these children in the Marxist traditions that education uses as a base today.

The political indoctrination and propaganda that is being forced on these children today is the same as it has been for the college students that we all have seen in the streets burning and looting because they care more than you do, are more educated than you are, and are in every way, morally superior to those outside of the bubble they have placed themselves inside.

Being a social justice warrior sounds like a high level, morally superior person – someone who can walk on water and dispense truth like Tide Pods to any who will listen – almost a God-like creature who leads the ignorant masses to

 

the light. These protests are built on the premise “that a child should lead them” – faintly historical, faintly biblical but of a pattern unseen in the roots of religion. read more

Let’s Protect both the First and Second Amendments Equally

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Being a member of the NRA these days may be one the most heinous things an American can do, according to snowflake leftists.

The push from the radical left has reached a fever-pitch against the Second Amendment rights organization. So much so that even road-side billboards have begun to crop up slamming the NRA.

The first to be legally erected was in Pensacola, Fla. The rather large billboard reads: “The NRA is a terrorist organization.” It was paid for by a former Clinton hack, Claude Taylor, who now heads up the “Mad Dog,” anti-Trump Political Action Committee (PAC). Taylor was a Bill Clinton White House staffer.

I wonder where he gets his funding? I don’t know, but if I were a betting man, I’d wager the house on George Soros. It seems like he funds most of the radical leftist hate groups.

When not waging war against the Second Amendment, Taylor’s PAC concentrates on trying to impeach president Trump. So he’s a multi-tasker. read more

CNN’s Chris Cillizza is not a Smart Man

from HotAir:

CNN’s Chris Cillizza On Deputy Scot Peterson: He Proved The NRA Wrong

CNN’s Chris Cillizza had a really awful hot take on the news that Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson stood outside doing nothing while Nikolas Cruz was inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school shooting people. Cillizza’s take is that this proves, once and for all, that a ‘good guy with a gun’ doesn’t always stop a bad guy with a gun.

Cillizza:

“To stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun,” LaPierre said to applause from the CPAC crowd on Thursday morning. read more

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