Back on September 11, Zero Hedge predicted the events which unfolded in Paris last Friday (and the resulting aftermath) with uncanny accuracy. Specifically, we said that “as the need to ratchet up the fear factor grows, expect more such reports of asylum seekers who have penetrated deep inside Europe, and whose intentions are to terrorize the public. Expect a few explosions thrown in for good effect” and we added that “since everyone knows by now “not to let a crisis go to waste” the one thing Europe needs is a visceral, tangible crisis, ideally with chilling explosions and innocent casualties. We expect one will be provided on short notice.” Continue reading »
Atlanta’s police department is storing up to 10,000 confiscated firearms and refusing to give them back to their owners or sell them, in defiance of state law.
Deputy Police Chief Ericka Shields told The Atlanta Journal Constitution that her department has several thousand confiscated guns stored in a secret location. Continue reading »
Today the FBI released its latest background check data – a proxy for total gun sales in the United States as most gun purchases require a background check – in which we find that, as expected, Obama’s latest threat to implement stricter gun controls backfried once more, and the month of October saw a record number of background checks. The same was true for September, August, and so on: in fact, October the sixth consecutive month to see a record number of checks.
In spite of this, Pew reports, the American public believes that homicides and gun deaths are increasing in the United States. Those who think violence is getting worse should probably watch less television and look around them instead. The murder rate in the US is currently similar to 1950s levels.Meanwhile, the number of privately owned guns (and gun commerce in general) in the United States has increased substantially in recent decades.
After decades of berating Americans for their Constitutionally protected right to bear arms, Europeans are finally starting to wake up. As SHTFPlan.com’s Mac Slavo notes, it took over a million Islamic immigrants and violence across their union to convince them, but it appears that they finally get it.
In Austria, the scramble for self defense firearms is on, as WND.com reports, Austrians are arming themselves at record rates in an effort to defend their households against feared attacks from Muslim invaders. Continue reading »
Most Americans like to believe that the citizens of Europe have been completely disarmed by their governments, but that’s only partially true. Gun rights vary considerably from nation to nation, and guns can still be had, even in places with strict laws. However, a very interesting trend has emerged in those places.
Despite how hard it is to attain these weapons in countries like Austria, firearms are currently being sold there in record numbers much like they are in the United States. But instead of the threat of confiscation, this trend is being fueled by the refugee crisis. According to a Czech TV report, pretty much all of the long guns in the country have been sold out for the past three weeks. One gun merchant revealed that most of the buyers are women who want to protect themselves, and those who can’t buy firearms are buying up pepper spray. Continue reading »
In what will go down as one of the most disgusting, hate filled articles ever published on the hard left clickbait rag Salon.com, an author and liberal college professor has written a piece that calls for all gun owners to be shot.
No, you did not read that incorrectly and this is not hyperbole.
The article, written by Coppin State University teacher D. Watkins, not only calls for all gun owners to be shot but also ridiculously compares them to slaveholders while claiming that there is no legitimate reason to own a weapon. Continue reading »
With the latest swarm of mass shootings still in the headlines, and of course the ubiquitous call for gun control/prohibition, the Supreme Court’s decision this week on whether it will hear a challenge to a suburban Chicago law banning firearms commonly known as assault weapons seems more critical than ever. As NBC News notes, if the court agrees to hear the case, it would cast a shadow over similar bans in seven states; but declining to take it up would boost efforts to impose such bans elsewhere.
The U.S. Supreme Court could announce as early as Tuesday whether it will hear a challenge to a suburban Chicago law banning firearms commonly known as assault weapons.
If the court agrees to hear the case, it would cast a shadow over similar bans in seven states. But declining to take it up would boost efforts to impose such bans elsewhere, at a time of renewed interest in gun regulation after recent mass shootings. Continue reading »
I just got back from Caracas, Venezuela, a city so dangerous that every time I left my hotel, the staff would warn me against even going outside.
It’s an incredibly difficult reality to reconcile. People hate the fact that they may get robbed or killed just steps from their front door when they leave the house every morning.
And nobody wants that.
After all, everyone wants to be safe. Even wild animals seek out safety in nature.
A few years ago, in response to national outcry, the government of Venezuela took steps to fix this problem. Continue reading »
… or … because of major gun control.
Having pointed out the surge in gun sales that has accompanied many of the largest mass shootings in America (and the government’s instant knee-jerk reaction to tighten gun control, perhaps ignoring the mental problems many Americans face), and earlier noted that ‘mass shootings’ are now running at a pace of more than 1 per day in America, we thought DailyCaller.com’s Mike Piccione’s intriguing report detailing the supposed “gun-free-zone” of Chicago provided some crucial color that few seem willing to listen to…
Someone in Chicago has been shot every 2.84 hours this year for a total of 2,349 shootings during the period of January 1, 2015 to October 6, 2015, according to crime stats published by the Chicago Tribune.
This year, Chicago is expected to eclipse the previous milestone of a shooting every 3.38 hours in 2014 with a total victim count of 2,587.
But – Chicago ranks as one of the most regulated cities in the nation for gun control. Continue reading »
When President Obama spoke in reaction to the heinous October 1 attack on Umpqua Community College, he went beyond his usual calls for more gun control and suggested instead that America consider following the path blazed by Australia and Great Britain.
In the mid-1990s Australia and Great Britain both instituted what were virtually complete bans on firearm possession.
Obama referenced the bans thus:
We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Friends of ours, allies of ours — Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours. So we know there are ways to prevent it.
And Obama is not the only one who suggested taking a gun-free approach to American life. The anti-Second Amendment message was also pushed by Slate, Vox, and Dan Savage. Continue reading »
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo renewed his call for national gun control legislation on Saturday as he delivered a eulogy for the top state attorney who was fatally wounded by a stray bullet in Brooklyn earlier this month.
State officials and family members gathered at Brooklyn’s Emmanuel Baptist Church in a private service for Carey Gabay, 43, who was struck in the head at a pre-dawn outdoor celebration on Sept. 7 before the annual West Indian Day parade, an event plagued by violence in recent years.

– Obama’s Plan to Take Guns from Seniors and the Disabled (The Daily Sheeple, July 18, 2015):
Like clockwork, gun control advocates always make a big push for their agenda after every mass shooting. The recent shootings in Charleston and Chattanooga are no different. Due to our government’s failure to keep firearms out of the hands of mass shooters, President Obama has since called for tighter background checks. But this time he wants to utilize the information tied to Social Security beneficiaries. Continue reading »
Gloria Marie Steinem (born March 25, 1934) is an American feminist, journalist, and social and political activist who became nationally recognized as a leader and spokeswoman for the feminist movement in the late 1960s and early 70s.
She was a columnist for New York magazine and a founder of Ms. magazine. In 1969, she published an article, “After Black Power, Women’s Liberation,” which brought her to national fame as a feminist leader. Continue reading »

– Colt’s Bankruptcy Isn’t Because Civilian Gun Sales Are Down (Government Slaves, June 18, 2015):
(Hognose) The media love the idea that the firearms market is in a state of collapse. This propaganda theme is being fed to them by Bloomberg-funded gun-ban groups, and by Bloomberg’s own propaganda arm, Bloomberg News, and, like any good propaganda campaign, it reinforces the presuppositions, biases, and slants of the intended targets (in this case, Acela Corridor newsmen) with a Narrative® that’s Too Good To Check™.
One writer who didn’t check his Narrative®, or much of anything else, was David Francis at Foreign Policy, the magazine/website that’s expert in strategy because it employs Beltway drones with degrees from The Right Schools. (Most of whom can only function overseas where Loud Slow English is understood). Continue reading »
– Gunman opens fire at Dallas police headquarters, leading to armed standoff (, June 13, 2015):
A lone gunman opened fire at the Dallas police headquarters early Saturday morning, authorities said, leading to a standoff that has continued for several hours.
The suspect was shot by a sniper and authorities are trying to determine if the individual is still alive, Dallas Police Chief David O. Brown said at a news conference Saturday morning.
Police said that the gunfire began at about 12:30 a.m. outside the police headquarters at 1400 South Lamar Street. Witnesses reported seeing what appeared to be multiple people firing automatic weapons at the police station, authorities said.
No officers were injured, Brown said.
– Bombs planted in attack on Dallas police headquarters (Reuters, June 13, 2015):
Bombs were planted outside Dallas Police headquarters in an attack early on Saturday that may have involved as many as four gunmen firing automatic weapons, police said.
Dallas Police Chief David Brown told reporters that a motive for the attack was not yet known, but he also said there had been threats and attacks on police elsewhere in the country in the past few months.
One of the devices, a pipe bomb, exploded when a police robot attempted to move it. Another, which was under a police vehicle, was detonated by a bomb squad, according to the police department.
– Idaho School Arms Its Teachers As Defense Against Violent Criminals (ZeroHedge, June 9, 2015):
In the aftermath of the 2012 Shady Hook elementary school shooting, the Obama administration did everything in its power to impose even further Second Amendment limitations on general principles. It failed. Instead, what has happened over the past year is a documented series of lethal (and in many cases brutal) gun violence by those tasked to uphold and preserve the law, and who have been specifically instructed how to use weapons: the US police force.
And in a world in which violence is constantly on the rise yet the police can not be relied on to “protect and to defend”, one Idaho school has decided to take matters into its own hands.
According to the Guardian, the small Garden Valley School district in Idaho has purchased firearms and trained a handful of staff to use them should the same school shooting rampage that has occurred across the country take place. Continue reading »
“Arming for riots across America?”
The U.S. government is getting ready for an all-out civil war.

– Arming for Riots Across America? Homeland Stockpiling “Less Lethal Specialty Munitions” (ZeroHedge, April 4, 2015):
Riot police of the Western world have recently come up against a succession of formidable threats. In Frankfurt for instance, German authorities were forced to square off against a legion of angry clowns who, in an effort to express their displeasure at austerity measures advocated by the ECB (which was at the time celebrating the completion of their new Frankfurt headquarters), set quite a few things on fire. Meanwhile, in the mean streets of Montreal, an “association of young communists” forgot to provide authorities with a protest itinerary, which led police to settle the matter with rubber bullets and sound bombs. Finally, in Quebec City, riot police were accosted by dozens of students who wanted, among other things, for the library to stay open longer, leaving authorities with no choice but to show protesters the meaning of “crowd control” via point-blank tear gas gun assaults. Here are the visuals:
Given that, and considering several recent contentious situations in Ferguson (Michael Brown) and New York (Eric Garner), it appears the Department of Homeland Security (via the US Customs and Border Protection dept) is intent on enhancing its ability to bring unruly crowds under control, so if you are a “less lethal” munitions supplier, you may want to check out the business opportunity the government has for you. Here’s the official summary: Continue reading »
– The War On Preppers: Obama Bans Ammo For The Most Popular Rifle In America (Economic Collapse, Feb 26, 2015):
Because he can’t get Congress to approve the things that he wants to do, Barack Obama has apparently decided to rule by decree for the rest of his time in the White House. One of Obama’s latest moves is to try to ban some of the most popular ammunition for the most popular rifle in America. Previously, the Obama administration attempted unsuccessfully to ban the AR-15. That didn’t work, so now Obama is going after the ammunition. This is yet another example of the war on preppers that is going on all over the nation. Whether you are a gun owner or not, this assault on our constitutional rights should disturb you greatly. Barack Obama has promised to try to squeeze as much “change” as possible out of his last two years, and in the process he is “fundamentally transforming” America. But what will our country look like when he is done?
At the top of the Drudge Report today, there was a story from the Washington Examiner detailing this ammo ban…
As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters. Continue reading »
– The Police States of America – Elderly New Jersey Man Faces 10 Years in Jail for Possession of 18th Century Pistol (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Feb 24, 2015):
You just can’t make this stuff up. You really can’t. Another day, another elderly American peasant pursued by a “justice” system in which real crooks receive taxpayer bailouts to pay themselves bonuses, while perfectly normal citizen behavior is criminalized.
The victim this time is a 72-year-old New Jersey man named Gordon Van Gilder, a retired school teacher, who faces 10 years in jail for possessing a unloaded antique 225-year-old flintlock pistol.
Read it and weep serfs. From Reason:
Gordon Van Gilder is a retired New Jersey school teacher and collector of 18th century memorabilia. That innocuous hobby could land the 72-year-old behind bars for the rest of his life.
Van Gilder owns an unloaded antique 225-year-old flintlock pistol, the possession of which carries a potential 10-year prison sentence and mandatory minimum sentence of three to five-and-a-half years with no chance for parole. Continue reading »
– Police: Armored Military Vehicles Needed for ‘Constitutionalists’ with Firearms (Infowars, Dec 14, 2014):
“We’ve got a lot of constitutionalists… a lot of people that stockpile weapons”
Shocking video provided exclusively to Infowars shows a Washington state sheriff’s deputy proclaiming that law enforcement officers need armored military vehicles because of “constitutionalists” with firearms.
The footage, recently captured in Spokane Valley, begins with a local resident asking two deputies why police would need vehicles specifically designed for warfare abroad.
“I mean, we’ve got a lot of constitutionalists and a lot of people that stockpile weapons, lots of ammunition,” one deputy says. “They have weapons here locally.”
The startling admission not only points to active surveillance of legal gun owners, but of those who support the country’s founding document, further solidifying concerns among law-abiding citizens that police are receiving military equipment and training in order to target conservative Americans.

– Border Patrol stripping agents of their rifles (KVOA, Nov 10, 2014):
The News 4 Tucson Investigators have uncovered that some U.S. Border Patrol agents have lost a key part of their arsenal. And that has agents who patrol along the border here, extremely worried.
We learned that U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Offices of Border Patrol and Training and Development are inspecting the quality of agents’ M4 carbines throughout Border Patrol sectors nationwide. But agents tell us, some of those M4s have not been replaced. And, we’ve learned, agents are required to share rifles amongst each other. Continue reading »
Under the auspices of helping struggling school children to grapple with complex emotions and mental health issues, students will be screened not for their own benefit, but to further the aims of total gun control.
The Obama executive orders written in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting introduced a number of policy-laws designed to mandate mental health programs and screening, and include ‘gun talk’ as part of the deal.
Funding for these programs has now followed suit. Continue reading »
– Prove it! British govt to enforce age checks for porn, weapons sites (RT, Oct 27, 2014):
All adult websites falling under UK jurisdiction, including those selling guns, will be expected to verify if visitors are over 18, under new plans being compiled by the government.
The owners of any websites with adult content will be forced to implement software to check people’s ages as is already the case with gambling sites, the Sunday Times reported.
The online gambling site Betfred already asks users to prove their age by providing passport details, driver’s license, a bank or eWallet statement. Continue reading »
– Armed crowd marches through downtown St. Louis (PHOTOS, VIDEO) (RT, Oct 26, 2014):
Dozens of armed demonstrators have marched through the downtown St. Louis to confirm their right to carry firearms openly in public. Only some 10 policemen watched the march without much interest, even after the group met counter protesters.
A heavily armed crowd of over 40 people marched on Saturday afternoon from the Citygarden to the Gateway Arch, openly displaying their arsenal. A group of some 10 police officers took a note of the gathering, but did not follow or otherwise intervene with the group armed with pistols and rifles, St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
