Second Amendment

Stop Gun-Grabbing Rep. Kevin McCarthy From Being Speaker Of The House

We urge all of our Second Amendment supporting friends to go to the GOA website and use the tools they have to let your Representative know that you oppose Kevin McCarthy for Speaker, and that you want a principled, limited government constitutional conservative like Jim Jordan to be the next Speaker of the House.

Shall We Crucify Laura Ingraham?

Craig Shirley, Reagan Biographer and Chairman of Shirley & Banister Public Affairs.

I know Laura Ingraham, and, beyond my own wife and blood, I know of no woman so incapable of doing a dishonest or dishonorable thing.  Fighting back on behalf of Ingraham is not just about a supremely accomplished woman versus a 17-year old and the entire liberal commentariat enabling him. It’s about truth, facts and decency.

David Hogg - The Left's New Sandra Fluke

David Hogg is only 17, but that’s what makes him such a useful tool of the Left. He gets to say whatever he wants, but then scuttle back behind the mantle of youth when Laura Ingraham beaned him. We urge CHQ readers and friends to contact FOX News, use the social media hashtags #IStandWithLaura and #IStandWithLauraIngraham to tell them you stand with Laura Ingraham and want her back on TV NOW.

Mr. Hogg's Revolution

What I concluded after looking at history is that if you are in America today, there’s nowhere in the world left to flee if you want to be free. This is it; if Mr. Hogg’s revolution wins and liberty dies here, then it dies everywhere for generations to come.

Ted Cruz Explains Why He Opposed The Omni-Disaster

In 2016, the American people voted overwhelmingly for Republicans to change Washington. Now, Congress did the exact opposite: pass a massive $1.3 trillion spending bill — 2200 pages drafted by the Swamp in the dark of night — that will plunge our nation even deeper into debt.

Call Congress Today: Protest This Atrocious Spending Bill!

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

FLASH UPDATE: President Trump says he is considering vetoing the Omnibus. You may contact the White House through this link to urge him to veto this outrageous attack on the conservative -- populist agenda that elected Donald Trump President.

In another middle-of-the-night sneak attack on America, the leaders of the Uniparty, RINO Senator Mitch McConnell and Far-Left liberal Democrat Chuck Schumer rammed through the $1.3 trillion Omnibus spending bill that no Senator read and few even know what it does. This government by trainwreck will continue unless you get involved.

The Oligarchs’ Counterrevolution

Media and internet near-monopolies and a too big to fail bank, the largest credit card issuer in the country, have joined in another attack on the Second Amendment and brazenly announced their plan to undermine the Constitution to accomplish their goals.

GOP Establishment Throwing Away Majority In Omnibus

We urge CHQ readers to call the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) to ask for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Tell Rep. McCarthy that if he wants to keep his Republican majority in the House there should be no internet sales tax in the omnibus, no funding for Planned Parenthood, no Chuck Schumer earmark for the bloated New York – New Jersey tunnel, no insurance company Obamacare bailout, no Ex-Im bank cronyism, and absolutely no new gun control in this year’s omnibus.

Democrats and RINOs Driving 2018 Omnibus Spending

We urge CHQ readers to call the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) to ask for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Tell Rep. McCarthy there should be no internet sales tax in the omnibus, no funding for Planned Parenthood, no Chuck Schumer earmark for the bloated New York – New Jersey tunnel, no insurance company Obamacare bailout and no Ex-Im bank cronyism in this year’s omnibus.

This Week The GOP Decides Who It Is

The omnibus spending bill, slated to be an eye-popping, Obama-level $1 trillion-plus has become a catchall for practically every spending priority of the Democrats, while calls from conservatives for spending discipline and conservative policy riders have been given the cold shoulder by the House and Senate leadership.

Trump’s Unconstitutional Gun Confiscation Plans

What President Trump's proposal does is violate the Fifth Amendment to make it easier to violate the Second Amendment – a demonstration of just how far afield from the Constitution Republicans will stray when not securely moored to constitutional conservative principles.

Second Amendment In Jeopardy In The House Next Week

Democrats are working with gun-control groups to find a way to politicize the Parkland, Florida killings to their advantage for November's midterm elections. Democrats don’t really want to do anything that will help identify and stop troubled people from killing, they want to milk these tragedies for political advantage and the GOP's squishy Capitol Hill leaders are ready to help them.

Trump's words will fade away, due process will not

Editors, Washington Examiner

The lack of a reaction from most of the Right and the calm rebuttal from the National Rifle Association tell us some things about politics in 2018. We are reminded of how tribalism and party increasingly rise above policy in our fiercest disputes. We are also reminded of the president’s lack of verbal continence. He tends to say things without thinking them through, and his later actions and words often prove divorced from his earlier words. It's dizzying to have a president who is so flippant with weighty words and so detached from any political philosophy. But if we listen close enough, we can see through the fog his words create.

In defense of the right to keep and bear arms

Andrew P. Napolitano, Washington Times

Even after Heller, governments have found ways to infringe on the right to self-defense. Government does not like competition. Essentially, government is the entity among us that monopolizes force. The more force it monopolizes the more power it has. So it has enacted, in the name of safety, the least safe places on earth — gun-free zones. The nightclub in Orlando, the government offices in San Bernardino, the schools in Columbine, Newtown and Parkland were all killing zones because the government prohibited guns there and the killers knew this.

Second Amendment Shows The Limits Of Trump’s Transactional Presidency

As conservatives gathered at CPAC to celebrate a successful first year of the presidency of Donald Trump the President’s response to Nikolas Cruz’s crimes at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School showed the limits of Trump’s commitment to conservative principles and the conservative agenda.

The Second Amendment is a human right — ignorance toward it is troubling

Ned Ryun, The Hill

The ignorance on display regarding the Second Amendment and its history is troubling and is due to the fact that no one really teaches about our rights ensconced in our Constitution. They weren’t pulled from thin air but from the idea of natural law and the concept of human rights endowed by a Creator.

Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle Grassroots Hero And Smart Politician

Lt. Governor Casey Cagle’s vow to kill the $50 million Delta tax break was not only good tax policy, a principled defense of the Second Amendment, and a well-deserved thumb in the eye to Delta’s virtue signaling Leftwing corporate oligarchs, based on the numbers it was also good politics.

Why We Need the Second Amendment More than Ever

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The ultimate reason that that amendment came to be was something just as crucial (perhaps more, if that's possible) as personal or family protection -- and I bet almost everyone in that CPAC crowd knew it. It was for the citizenry to protect themselves against a tyrannical government. James Madison and the other Founders proposed we adapt the Second Amendment from British Common Law.  They saw into a future beyond muskets and AR-15s and Glocks and even drones, lasers and whatever else people will use on each other.

Florida School Shooting Reveals Epic Government Failures

While the anti-gun crowd demands that the federal government ban the AR-15 and any other gun that they think looks like an “assault weapon,” what the latest revelations about the government and police failures at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tell us is that, as things stand now, waiting for the police to come and protect you from the next Nikolas Cruz is a death sentence.

Ben Stein Is Not A Gun Guy, But…

Ben Stein is an eminently sensible guy, but like many eminently sensible sounding proposals, his proposal that the United States government should ban the AR-15, and similar so-called “assault weapons,” is a cop-out to avoid fixing the real problem; parents and government officials who ignore and cover for antisocial, near feral, humans like Nikolas Cruz until they kill someone.
