First They Will Take Your Dogs, Then They Will Take Your Guns

Messing with an American's dogs and guns is a fast way to start a revolution, but that's just what may be in the offing if a ruling by a U.S. District Judge in Michigan becomes precedent.

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.

Conservatives take a leap of faith on Gorsuch

Ryan Lovelace, Washington Examiner

Gorsuch looks poised to follow in the footsteps of the late Justice Antonin Scalia, a stalwart originalist whose vacant seat Gorsuch is looking to fill. But the potential for the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals judge to differ from Scalia on the Second Amendment and abortion has some conservatives acknowledging they are not sure where the high court nominee stands on those issues.

Urban Leftists Can’t Stop Violating the Constitution

David French, National Review

It’s time to impose real costs for violations of our most fundamental constitutional rights. The most important task of government at any level in the United States is to protect the liberty of its citizens. A government or public entity that repeatedly violates the rights secured in the Bill of Rights simply doesn’t deserve taxpayer support, and it’s past time to link federal funding to the protection of individual liberty.

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."

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.

Ryan And McCarthy Playing Small Ball Against Islam’s Civilization Jihad

The Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044 we urge CHQ readers to call Speaker Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Homeland Security Chairman Mike McCaul to tell them it is time to confront the subversive pre-violent elements of civilization jihad, such as influence operations, lawfare, infiltration, migration, material support for terrorism, etc. Tell them that there is no acceptable substitute for Victory Over Jihad and that their bill falls far short of putting in place the tools necessary to defeat the clear and present danger civilization jihad presents to constitutional liberty and Western civilization.

Cruz Nails Obama Willful Blindness To Muslim Terrorism And Its Goals

As our friend Frank Gaffney put it so memorably after Senator Ted Cruz's stellar questioning of DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, “The U.S. government is, indeed, ‘willfully blind’ about sharia-supremacism and the danger it poses to America.  Sen. Ted Cruz has established that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson could qualify for a seeing-eye dog – and why… These are the narratives of the Muslim Brotherhood – and proof-positive of their successful, subversive influence operations inside the Obama administration.”

Muslim Terrorism In America: See Something, Say Nothing

Our friend Philip B. Haney yesterday testified before Senator Ted Cruz’s Subcommittee on Oversight, Agency Action, Federal Rights and Federal Courts to explain just how deeply the Obama administration has been penetrated by the Muslim Brotherhood. Haney is the author of the must-read book See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government's Submission to Jihad that we strongly recommend to CHQ readers.

Fact: Ryan And Obama Are Importing Muslim Terrorism

Out of 580 individuals convicted on terrorism or terrorism-related offenses between September 11, 2001 and December 31, 2014 at least 380 of them were foreign born, and there's only one man responsible for keeping this existential threat to your safety and quality of life alive, and that's Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. We urge you to call Speaker Ryan’s office, the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044, tell Speaker Ryan that you will hold him personally responsible for the next jihadi attack on our country.

Louie Gohmert: America’s Last Hope To Preserve Constitutional Liberty

Rep. Louie Gohmert, one man with principles – and a gut level love for his country and constitutional liberty – can do what a gallery full of House Republican mice would never dare – get mad, get emotional, get angry and confront the Democrats about what really got 50 people killed in Orlando.

Trump Is Right: Hillary Puts Refugees Ahead Of Inner City Americans

Trump's comments about Hillary Clinton's plans to expand the refugee resettlement program are dead on. Nothing captures how the “iron triangle” of entrenched Washington insider interests uses its influence on Congress to raid the Treasury and betray the American people as does the refugee “resettlement” industry.

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.

Donald Trump Should Thank Ted Cruz For This Speech

We think every American should read or hear this speech by Ted Cruz and Trump’s speech on Muslim terrorism from earlier this week. Their mutual understanding of how to fight and win the war Islam has declared on America and the West revives our faint hope that Trump and Cruz might find a way to work together in the campaign against Hillary Clinton.

Obama and Ryan Want to Fight You, Not Muslim Terrorists

Many have commented on the folly of the Obama "countering violent extremism" strategy. But there’s an even more sinister element to the refusal by Capitol Hill Republicans to use the power of the purse to correct this negligent and wasteful strategy: through its so-called community partners, the program actually ends up funding individuals and organizations that sympathize with and cover for the terrorists.

Anti-Gun Talk Dishonors the Dead and Wounded

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

The answer is not to attempt an impossible “make America gun-free” campaign. The answer is to recognize that facing terrorist attacks in “soft target” public places, that people who safely carry guns save lives.

The Leftwing Media's Top Issues for 2016: Gun Control and Hiding the Truth About Islam

Gun control is the one political issue that conveniently brings together Islamists and Leftwing statists, like Hillary Clinton, because what they both want is more unarmed victims who are incapable of defending constitutional liberty and standing in the way of their totalitarian vision for the future.

Gay Gun Group: Shoot Back

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner

Pink Pistols spokesperson Gwendolyn Patton said, "This is exactly the kind of heinous act that justifies our existence. At such a time of tragedy, let us not reach for the low-hanging fruit of blaming the killer's guns. Let us stay focused on the fact that someone hated gay people so much they were ready to kill or injure so many."
