The Fake News About Machine Guns In Las Vegas Attack

A “bumpfire stock,” as was apparently used in the Las Vegas attack, is not a "machine gun" and does not change how the gun loads or fires – but that won't stop cynical Democrats from trying to ban them.

The Unserious ‘Serious’ Discussion About Guns

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

It is insensible to think that good laws can protect the innocent without a functioning civil society that reinforces them. It is precisely the fruit of that civil society, a culture of self-control, that the liberal elite has done the most to poison. Liberals favor “gun control” without self-control. In the end, this just means more and more government control — an endless cycle of relativism leading to totalitarianism.

The Las Vegas lesson about guns

Editors, Washington Examiner

There is generally no distinction between the types of guns criminals use to kill people and the types of guns law-abiding people own for lawful and valid purposes. They're the same guns. Republican lawmakers and gun-rights activists haven't fought to overturn the strict federal rules regulating automatic weapons. The lesson of Las Vegas is that even the strictest firearms laws consistent with constitutional rights cannot prevent murder.

Dems Sifting The Air To Tie Vegas Shooting To Trump

When Democrats and the establishment media blame “gun nuts” and “white men w/ guns” for the acts of psychopaths, we conservatives should not take the bait and be bullied into buying the Left’s “blame the gun” narrative.

Weak-Kneed Ryan Stalls National Concealed Carry Reciprocity

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan isn't "weak-kneed" on national reciprocity or rolling back Obama-era gun control and other anti-constitutional legislation, he's on the other side.

Is the Second Amendment Only for the Elite?

The Framers of the Constitution did not reserve the right of self-defense to those elite members of society whose position or wealth provides them with armed guards. When the courts fail to enforce the promises of the Constitution, then it is up to the legislature to act. We urge Congress to take up and pass a national concealed carry bill.

EU Gun Grabbers Stymie Czech Plan To Defeat Muslim Terrorists

As of now the Czech Republic has some of the most lenient gun policies in Europe.

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner

Driven by terror threats and a potential Hillary Clinton administration, sales of guns in America soared to record levels in 2016, according to the FBI. Just released FBI background check numbers, which roughly equate gun sales, totaled some 27,538,673, 4 million more than in 2015 and nearly double the number in President Obama's first year.

We Need More Legislators Like Florida State Representative Bob Rommel

I was blown away when, in less than 24 hours, I received a reply to my email to Rep. Bob Rommel about using constitutional state sovereignty to protect the Second Amendment saying "I, too, am totally alarmed by the federal government’s troublesome overreach into our lives, and most especially by attempts to curtail our God-given right to protect ourselves and our families."

Obama’s Midnight Sneak Attack on the Second Amendment

Although Obama likes to empty out Guantanamo Bay of dangerous terrorists and commute the sentences of criminals guilty of breaking federal firearms laws, he doesn't like law-abiding American citizens to possess firearms.

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner

With Election Day nearing, the 162-store Gander Mountain chain has launched a huge "Election Sale" on firearms, promoting the industry's bid to keep Hillary Rodham Clinton and other anti-gun Democrats from office.

Elaine Donnelly: The Importance of Military Culture, Cohesion, and Core Values

The Democratic Platform and Hillary Clinton support Obama’s women-in-the-infantry mandates, and an army of advisers and sensitivity trainers are planning to wear down “hyper-masculine” attitudes and “unconscious bias.”  This will leave men less prepared to fight the enemy, but all will be schooled in gender identities, gun control, “white privilege,” and climate change.

Democrats Warn: Your Gun Is a Public Health Threat

David Catron, The American Spectator

By converting gun violence from a law and order issue to a health crisis, Hillary Clinton and her accomplices hope to achieve two goals: Move the public’s focus away from crime prevention, a task at which Democrats are notoriously inept, and convince us that it’s all about scientific progress rather than increasing the power of the federal government.

No, President Obama, It’s Not Easier To Buy A Glock Than A Book

Sean Davis, The Federalist

The president’s claim that teenagers can go out and grab Glocks more easily than they can find books or computers isn’t just false. It’s a pathetic attempt by an ineffective, lame duck president to hijack a service of mourning for his own unpopular political agenda.

Christian Datoc, Daily Caller

Liberal Journalist Goes Shooting Once And Gets “PTSD”

If shooting leaves you in terror and gives you “PTSD” after a few minutes on a gun range don’t buy a gun, and for sure don’t try to take mine.

The Gun Control Farce

Thomas Sowell, Investors Business Daily

Virtually all empirical studies in the United States show that tightening gun control laws has not reduced crime rates in general or murder rates in particular. Is this because only people opposed to gun control do empirical studies? Or is it because the facts uncovered in empirical studies make the arguments of gun control zealots untenable?

The Chamber Of Failure Never Fails To Accomplish Nothing

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

After grandstanding and shouts of “do something!” the Senate had four gun control options on which to vote Monday night. None of them passed. Absolutely nothing was accomplished. As per usual, the Senate is back to square zero. The good news: At least the Democrats didn’t get their way.

Omar Mateen Becomes a Useful Soldier in Barack Obama’s War Against Guns

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

As a terrorist, Mateen would raise questions about why the terror watch list, on which he appeared, failed. As a gunman, Mateen would raise questions about why he could so easily get guns and do so much damage.
