SHOCKING! DOJ Study: Gun Control Laws Won’t Work Because Criminals Get Their Guns Illegally

It took the United States government’s Department of Justice an entire study dedicated to gun use and criminals to figure out what logical human beings have already understood for decades. The result of their own study found that gun control laws will never work because criminals will never use legal channels to obtain guns.

Conservative Supreme Court majority to hear biggest gun rights case since 2010, Review New York Gun Law

A newly solidified conservative majority on the Supreme Court agreed Tuesday to take up a Second Amendment case for the first time since 2010.

At issue is a challenge to a provision of a New York City gun law that regulates where a licensed handgun owners can take their firearm. The law blocks licensed individuals from removing a handgun from the address listed on the license except to travel to nearby authorized small arms range/shooting clubs.

It is the first substantive gun rights cases the court has heard since Justice Antonin Scalia’s landmark opinion in 2008 holding that the Constitution protects an individual’s right to keep a gun at home and a follow up case in 2010. Since those opinions came down, the Court has declined to take up several other follow up cases to the frustration of supporters of guns rights.

How Gun Control Became an Instrument of Tyranny in Venezuela

The shocking nature of Venezuela’s economic collapse has been covered ad nauseam. However, one aspect of the Venezuelan crisis that does not receive much coverage is the country’s gun control regime...

Red Flag Gun Laws – Public Safety or Abuse of the Innocent?

There is a bias in politician's press releases and in the slanted news. The media and the politicians ignore the fact that firearms are used to save lives far more often than they are used to take them. News stories about violence hold an audience. Stories about violence get politicians in front of TV cameras. The good guy with a gun that stopped a crime from happening isn’t even considered news. The scales are tipped; tragedy becomes front page news while the triumph of a life saved is hardly mentioned.

Accidental Opioid Deaths Top Car Accident Deaths for the First Time

Deaths from accidental opioid overdoses now top car accidents for the first time, according to a report from the National Safety Council.

“Data, collected in 2017, shows Americans have a one in 96 chance of dying from an opioid overdose. The probability of dying in a motor vehicle crash is one in 103,” reports Fox News.

“Opioid pain relievers are the most fatally abused drugs and they’re entirely legal. Roughly 60 people die every day as a result of overdoses from opioids – that’s 22,630 Americans,” Fox adds. “To put that in perspective, that’s roughly the size of the entire population of Auburn Hills.”

Virginia’s Democratic Governor’s Anti-Gun Package Is Straight-Up Confiscation

Elections have consequences and all elections matter, especially at the state and local level. For nearly ten years, the Virginia Republican Party has yet to win another statewide race; the 2009 gubernatorial election was the last time they won. In 2017, Democratic Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam beat Ed Gillespie, and they virtually wiped out the GOP in the state. The GOP maintains two-seat majorities in both the House of Delegates and the state Senate. It’s not pretty, given that Republicans use to control over 60 seats. That sizable majority was the reason why former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, another Democrat, couldn’t push a far left agenda. He even signed into law a deal on the state’s concealed carry reciprocity laws, which were about to be shredded by state Attorney General Mark Herring, who is considering running for governor in 2021; Virginia bars consecutive terms for governors.

Demonized : In Politics It Seems Only Firearm Suicides Are Bad

Blaming guns (and gun owners) may be convenient for those with an agenda, but the awful truth is 4.5 times as many people hang or poison themselves every year as end their lives with a bullet. -- Why will nobody talk about those tragic losses of life? Or is suicide only bad when a gun is used?

Playing politics with suicide rates is morally appalling, yet that’s precisely what our government, media outlets and anti-gun groups do when they claim statistics “prove” Canada’s “gun control” scheme saves lives.

Feinstein Ban on Semiautos Deliberately Undermines ‘Security of a Free State’

The mask if off for all but those who refuse to see. This is not about “common sense gun safety” or protecting children or anything other than evil creatures in positions of power doing the bidding of those who would see the people disarmed. This is about nullifying any chance of opposition to their agenda of complete domination and control. -- A more proper name reflecting on the sponsors of this proposed Intolerable Act would be “The We're Anti-American Traitors Act of 2019.”

ATF Bump Stock Rule Demonstrates the Dangers Inherent in Administrative Actions

If Trump and the DOJ-ATF are allowed to get away with this subterfuge, then it is but a small step from a total ban on “bump stocks” to a total ban on all semiautomatic firearms, since rate of fire—utilized as the salient and subjective basis for elimination of firearms in the hands of civilians—will now provide the “ammunition” antigun zealots can and will latch onto in their unyielding zeal to continue to weaken the Second Amendment. And it is Trump, now, not Schumer or Pelosi, who has given them a vehicle they can and will use to destroy at once the citizen’s best means of self-defense and destroy, as well, the one truly capable defense in the citizen’s possession, to prevent or at least deter the onset of tyranny.

Senate Democrats Introduce Assault Weapons Ban of 2019

The odds that the bill will make it to the floor of the Senate are long. Republicans control the Senate, and just like Feinstein's previous bills, The Senate leadership will probably table the bill and not let it come to the floor for debate. -- Even if this bill makes it to the floor for a vote, it would need 60 votes to prevent a filibuster. That would mean that 13 Republican would have to cross party lines which seems unlikely.

FPC Firmly Opposed to Federal Gun Control, Including Red Flag Laws

FPC calls on every member of Congress to not only oppose and vote against these and other gun control bills, but to immediately introduce and pass important legislation to protect and advance the Second Amendment rights without further delay. FPC also encourages President Trump to demand pro-Second Amendment legislation with the same fervor that he does other, far less important issues. That is the job they were elected to do, and that is the basis upon which we and American voters will measure them.

When Guns Are Outlawed, Only Outlaws Will Have Guns — Paul Craig Roberts

Clearly, gun ban advocates are insincere about the few deaths of strangers that they so greatly deplore and use their insincerity to disguise an undeclared agenda. -- Their agenda is the disarming of the American people, a people already disarmed of the protections of the US Constitution by the fake “war on terror.” The only remaining barrier to tyrannized Americans is the large percentage of the population that is armed and skilled in the use of “gun violence.”

Democrats have wasted no time in introducing new control bills in the new Congressional session. -- Freshman Democrat Representatives have made gun-control a high priority for this session of Congress.

In the previous session Republicans controlled the House of Representatives and prevented anti-gun bills from making it to the floor.

DHS HAS EQUIPPED 400 POLICE DEPARTMENTS WITH MILITARY-GRADE SOUND CANNONS

A recent article in the Mohave Valley Daily News revealed that DHS is using grant money to equip Arizona police departments with military-grade sound cannons or Long Range Acoustic Devices (LRAD).

A Washington Times article from 2009, titled "DHS helps local police buy military-style sonic devices" warned everyone that military-grade sound cannons are being used against Americans.

"With the help of Homeland Security grants, police departments nationwide looking to subdue unruly crowds and political protesters are purchasing a high-tech device originally used by the military to repel battlefield insurgents and Somali pirates with piercing noise capable of damaging hearing." (Click here & here to learn how the NYPD has been using LRAD's since 2004.)

Last year a New York Appeals court ruled that LRAD's can cause “auditory pain, migraines, tinnitus, and hearing loss.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will tell you where this is going, folks; this use of the LRAD will ultimately be turned against American citizens, causing mass physical damage, even in the process of peaceful protest.

Robbery suspects thwarted by licensed gun owner, report says

Authorities said Brandon Smith, 25, of Santa Cruz, and Elizabeth Almand, 23, of Watsonville, were spotted shoplifting by a security guard around 8:25 p.m. Wednesday inside a Raley’s grocery store in Loomis, just northwest of Sacramento, KRCA-TV reported.

"When they left, (the guard) confronted them in the parking lot. There was an altercation where the suspect pulled a knife out," Lt. Andrew Scott said.

Smith allegedly tried stabbing the guard before the guard was able to knock the knife out of his hand onto the ground, authorities said. Almand allegedly went for the weapon when someone with a gun came over and said "Drop it!" according to reports.

"He had a concealed weapons permit," Placer County Sheriff's Lt. Andrew Scott said of the armed stranger. "He had a firearm on his person. He drew the firearm and told the female suspect to drop the knife."

Doctor takes on FBI, ATF after being denied second amendment rights over his legal medical cannabis use

A Pennsylvania doctor with no criminal record was denied his right to own a firearm only because he possesses a legal medical cannabis card. Unable to properly defend himself, the 33-year-old doctor has filed a lawsuit against the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF). The case will impact millions of medical marijuana users and gun owners across the United States.

When Guns Are Outlawed Only Outlaws Will Have Guns

It turns out that prescription drugs are the 4th leading cause of death, which puts it up there with cancer and heart attacks. Harvard University reports that properly prescribed medications hospitalize 1.9 million Americans annually, killing 128,000 people, which places prescribed medicines fourth place with strokes as a leading cause of death. Far more lives could be saved by focusing on careful drug testing rather than on gun control.

What then explains the fixation and constant propaganda about banning “assault rifles” when the total annual murders by assailants using all kinds of rifles is 403?

What explains the fixation on handguns that are the weapon of choice in only 41% of murders numbering only 7,032 deaths?

What is the point of disarming the population when private ownership of firearms prevents a large number of crimes. A study by criminologists Gary Kleck and Marc Gertz concluded that Americans use their guns annually to prevent more than 2 million crimes.

Are Gun Rights the Next Target of Corporate Censorship?

Ever since Dick’s Sporting Goods and banks such as Citigroup made business decisions in line with the mainstream media’s push for gun control, some opponents of gun control have debated whether private companies pose a bigger threat to gun rights than government does. In the case of Dick’s Sporting Goods, the outdoor company decided to stop selling rifles like the AR-15 and banned the sale of firearms to individuals younger than 21.

Politics Kills Our Kids Again, Safety Report from Parkland Florida

orida formed a study committee after 17 students and teachers were killed and an additional 17 were injured at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in early 2018. I read some of the MSDHS safety commission report. It covered the obvious points. Unfortunately, I don’t see much good coming out of it. This was more than a school failure; it was a political failure. More of our children will be at risk and some will die because of problems in the Florida legislature. Sure, implement the suggestions in the report, but please don’t stop there. -- The report told us to do the obvious. A school could have received nearly the same recommendations from almost any firearms instructor or security consultant.

PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS: WHEN GUNS ARE OUTLAWED ONLY OUTLAWS WILL HAVE GUNS

Those who want to ban guns use deceptive and dishonest terms such as “gun violence,” an illiterate use of language. Guns are inantimate objects like a hammer or a screwdriver. They are not capable of taking action such as commiting violence. They have to be used or misused by people intent on commiting violence. Therefore, there can be no such thing as “gun violence.” There can only be violence committed by people using guns or hammers or screwdrivers, or whatever.

Murders committed by assailants using handguns comprise a tiny 0.0056% of violent crimes. What explains the fixation on such a small problem?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am a Christian pacifist activist, which means that I never can, or will, condone violence of any kind.

However,that being said, the agenda here is clear; it is to disarm all thinking Americans so that the assault on our liberties and freedoms can continue, unabated, and with no recourse whatsoever for what has been done, and is being done, to the American people post 9/11, with the Congressional passing of the draconian laws, the Patriot Act,and the National Defense Authorization Act.

Parkland school shooting commission issues report, recommends arming Florida teachers

A Florida commission investigating the shooting massacre at a Parkland school has issued an initial report on Wednesday and recommended that teachers who volunteer to undergo firearms training, should be allowed to carry guns.

The 15-member Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission on Wednesday unanimously approved the 446-page report containing that proposal and other recommendations.

Now, it's in the hands of Gov. Rick Scott, Governor-elect Ron DeSantis and the legislature.

The legislature would have to approve the proposal to allow teachers to carry guns. It's opposed by the teachers union and the PTA.

The report also said that 30 people were documented to know of the shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz's troubling behavior prior to the rampage that killed 17 people at the school, according to Florida's Fox 13.

Pro-2A Student Doxxed for Pro-Gun Graduation Pics

Brenna Spencer gained viral social media infamy after her graduation picture last spring that sported not only a “Women for Trump” tee but also a handgun in her waistband. Since then the 22-year-old graduate of the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga has received death threats and calls for her to commit suicide in the wake of the tweet, which showed up on nearly 20 million Twitter feeds. Spencer has also been the victim of cyberstalking after her address was posted on social media. To her credit, rather than being scared into silence, Spencer is now working with a nonprofit in Tennessee dedicated to educating students on gun rights and concealed carry.

YPG fighting ISIL may keep US-supplied weapons, US commanders recommend, a move that is likely to incense ally Turkey.

US commanders planning for the withdrawal of troops from Syria have recommended that Kurdish fighters be permitted to keep US-supplied weapons, a move that would incense NATO ally Turkey.

Three officials, speaking to Reuters news agency on the condition of anonymity, said the recommendations were part of discussions on a draft plan by the US military.

While talks are at an early stage, no decision has yet been made, the officials noted.

The Pentagon said it would be "inappropriate" and premature to comment on what will happen with the weapons.

Firearms-Related Accident Deaths Plunge 41% From 1999, but the Media Won’t Report the Facts

While recent headlines might lead you to believe that accidental deaths from firearms are at an all-time high, the fact is they are at their lowest in decades — but unfortunately, the so-called “mainstream” media won’t report the truth.

As noted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation in a blog post on the group’s website, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is claiming that gun-related deaths in 2017 reached their highest level in the U.S. in 40 years.

As reported by Fox News:

In 2017, nearly 40,000 people were killed from gun-related incidents in the U.S., according to the data. By contrast, gun-related incidents accounted for less than 29,000 deaths in 1999.

That number has been increasing in recent years.

Illegal immigrants rank at the top of those on the FBI’s “prohibited category.”
