The Obama administration’s pro-gun control stance has done nothing but make the gun culture stronger and cause firearms arms to fly off gun store shelves. As PlanetFreeWill’s Joseph Jankowski notes, under Obama, background checks for guns reached 141.4 million through the end of May, amounting to sales of about 52,600 a day, according to the FBI… And 2016 is on pace to surpass last year’s record.

Here we go again. Stuck in the aftermath of a horrific shooting and all politicians think to do is scheme about how to take more rights from the citizenry. There are no good guys here. The Democrats want to railroad over due process by denying firearms to people on Orwellian watch lists, while Republicans plot to give the FBI more warrantless surveillance powers. This is the authoritarian knee-jerk response to tragedy we get from the U.S Congress.
Hypocritically, when it comes to foreign policy, all we hear are incessant calls for more militarism, more war and more regime change. As I warned in yesterday’s post, Is the Syrian War About to Experience a Major Escalation? — 51 State Department officials just issued a cable calling for the bombing of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad. An event likely to lead to direct confrontation with Russia. Continue reading »
Three people were arrested with multiple loaded guns, rifles and ballistic vests at the Holland Tunnel Tuesday when police stopped them for driving with a cracked windshield, authorities tell NBC 4 New York.
The three individuals, two men in their 50s and a woman in her 20s who may be from Pennsylvania, were stopped on the New Jersey side of the tunnel around 8 a.m., authorities said. A search of their vehicle revealed the weapons cache.
The guns seized included long-range weapons as well as handguns. A camouflage helmet with what appeared to be night goggles was also recovered. Continue reading »
It’s been a week since the terrorist attack on an Orlando nightclub that left 49 dead and 53 wounded. Since then, the sale of AR-15 rifles has soared in gun stores across the country, Fox Business reported.
Hunter’s Warehouse Owner Tom Engle told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney Saturday that his online gun shop, which carries an inventory of 300,000 to 400,000 weapons, has sold 30,000 AR-15s since Sunday.
A Federal Firearms License (FFL) permits gun store owners to import firearms and ammunition across the United States. Even though each state has its own gun laws, Engle explained how it would be possible to buy an AR-15 online.
“You would have the firearm shipped to an FFL [agency] in your home state because every state is different and then we would ship that FFL firearms agency in your home state and they would be responsible to do the paperwork for you in your home state,” he said. Continue reading »
At a time when it’s more important than ever to maintain the right of the American people to keep and bear arms for self-defense, law professor David S. Cohen is calling for repeal of the Second Amendment.
“Americans’ rights are in mortal danger,” he says, unless Hillary Clinton is elected president and stacks the Supreme Court with progressive judges.
In the repeatedly discredited rag, Rolling Stone, Cohen writes, “sometimes we just have to acknowledge that the Founders and the Constitution are wrong. This is one of those times. . . . The Second Amendment needs to be repealed because it is outdated, a threat to liberty and a suicide pact.” Continue reading »
Is this true?
It could never happen here, right?
Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw. Continue reading »
“You all are intolerant. I don’t want to coexist with this hate,” a female SJW (“social justice warrior”) at Portland State University tells members of Students for Trump.
“We’re gonna make it against the law for this,” she threatens in response to their peaceful promotion of an ideology she hates. “We are going to expand the definition of ‘hate speech’ to include what you are doing right here.” Continue reading »
A lawsuit by families of Sandy Hook victims is proceeding against Remington, manufacturer of the AR-15, in the new push to hold gun manufacturers responsible for what is done by people who purchase their products and use them illegally.
The New York Times is pretty excited about it:
The legal challenge faces long odds, and a key hearing next week will determine its future. But the lawsuit has already progressed further than many had expected — a Connecticut judge has set a trial date and has ordered the defendants to turn over documents — and no matter the outcome, it represents a muscular campaign against the powerful gun industry. [emphasis added]
That last part is key: they are setting a precedent here. Continue reading »
Numerous liberty movement analysts and proponents, myself included, have been warning about 2016 and the heightened potential for multiple terrorist events. I have written extensively on the history of ISIS, its proven ties to western governments and the disturbing program to forcefully inject millions of Islamic refugees into western nations in the name of dubious “multiculturalism,” allowing thousands of potential terrorists into our borders without obstruction. The reality is that terrorist attacks of small and medium scale are likely to become a monthly or weekly occurrence in the U.S. and the EU as we close in on the end of the year. Get used to the idea, because this problem is not going to go away while our own governments are aiding and even funding the very psychopaths that they are supposed to be protecting people from.

The agency’s source of power has always been fear.
And now is the time to capitalize upon it.
Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson has seized upon the Orlando shooting and is… rather predictably… using the specter of terrorism as a pretext for instituting gun control on a wider scale. (Of course, he isn’t alone.)
Now might be a good time to invest in a manufacturer that makes the AR-15… their stock is probably about to skyrocket. Why?
The president and the woman scheming to become president today are both calling for them to be banned.
Following the already highly politicized Orlando mass shooting that reportedly left 49 people dead and another 50+ wounded, Hillary has come out to say that the “weapon of war” used in the attack should be banned completely. Continue reading »

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today released Justice Department documents showing that weapons sent from the U.S. into Mexico as part of the Obama administration’s Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning program have been widely used by major Mexican drug cartels. According to the new records, over the past three years, a total of 94 Fast and Furious firearms have been recovered in Mexico City and 12 Mexican states, with the majority being seized in Sonora, Chihuahua and Sinaloa. Of the weapons recovered, 82 were rifles and 12 were pistols identified as having been part of the Fast and Furious program. Reports suggest the Fast and Furious guns are tied to at least 69 killings. Continue reading »
While hardly surprising, it is now official: the National Rifle Association has endorsed Donald Trump for president at today’s convention. Chris Cox, the executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, made the endorsement immediately before Trump walked on stage ABC reports.

SULTAN, Wash. — An 80-year-old great-grandmother shot and killed an intruder after he entered her home and attacked her husband, according to KOMO.
Barb Moles, 80, fired four shots, hitting the suspect three times.
Moles was home with her husband, John, and their adult son on the night of April 28 when she said she heard a commotion. She walked into the kitchen and found John lying on the floor bleeding from a stab wound. John had also been beaten with a crowbar by the intruder. Continue reading »
Supporter urges Clinton to take on “the sons and daughters of Charlton Heston”
Hillary Clinton plans to use executive orders to chip away at the gun rights of American citizens.
During an event in Philadelphia, a Hillary-supporting gun control advocate rose to urge Clinton to take on “the sons and daughters” of former NRA icon and legendary actor Charlton Heston. Continue reading »
In a somewhat stunning decision, SkyNews reports that a US judge has ruled that the families of victims in the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School can sue the maker of the weapon used in the attack, arguing the Bushmaster rifle is a military weapon that should not have been sold to civilians.
Gun companies had sought to reject the negligence and wrongful death lawsuit filed two years after the attack by nine victims’ relatives and a survivor.
But Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis said a 2005 federal law protecting gun-makers from lawsuits does not shield the companies from legal action in this case.
She ruled that lawyers for the victims’ families can still argue the semi-automatic rifle is a military weapon and should not have been sold to civilians.
Gardner, Kansas — In March of last year, three police officers crept into Deanne Choate’s home — and then her bedroom — where she was sleeping unclothed. After they demanded to know where her gun was, she tried to follow orders but was shot dead in her own bed. Her daughter is now suing the city of Gardner, Kansas.
It all began with a 911 call on the evening of March 26, 2015. Andrew Musto, Choate’s boyfriend, told them the 53-year-old woman was suicidal, had a gun, and had been drinking, according to the civil lawsuit. Continue reading »
ELLENWOOD, GEORGIA — A female employee with the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office opened fire on three suspects who broke into her house, hitting one of them and sending the others running for their lives.
While at home with her two sons, ages 8 and 10, one of those sons heard a noise that ended up being the sound of people trying to get into the home. He alerted his mother to the noise, and that’s when she grabbed her gun. Continue reading »
Chicago had an abnormally violent January to kick off 2016, with 292 people shot and 51 people killed. It is being reported as the deadliest January in Chicago in 16 years, with a 75 percent increase in homicides compared to last January. Most of it is gang-related according to police.
Somehow even though it is the third largest city in the country, Chicago continues to be home to more violent crime than either New York or LA.
Now, when you consider the fact that Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, how does this bode for all those people including our president who are continuing to push for more and more gun control? (Yeah, that question was rhetorical.) Continue reading »
“With 500-1,000 euros you can get a military weapon in half an hour,” said Bilal Benyaich, senior fellow at Brussels think-tank the Itinera Institute, who has studied the spread of radical Islam in Belgium. “That makes Brussels more like a big U.S. city” in mostly gun-free Europe, he said.
“A breeding ground for violence” the mayor of Molenbeek called her borough on Sunday, speaking of unemployment and overcrowding among Arab immigrant families, of youthful despair finding refuge in radical Islam.
But as the Brussels district on the wrong side of the city’s post-industrial canal becomes a focus for police pursuing those behind Friday’s mass attacks in Paris, Belgian authorities are asking what makes the narrow, terraced streets of Molenbeek different from a thousand similar neighborhoods across Europe.

Salon.com promotes everything society should be against. Is this what the world considers “liberalism” today?
Salon.com is the opposite of everything that is good in the world. They promote pedophiles, push racism and hate the Constitution of the USA. I don’t say this lightly. This is not Libel. I will prove everything that I just said. Continue reading »
United States — On Tuesday a federal judge ruled President Obama cannot use executive privilege to deny Congress access to records related to failed gun running scheme, Operation Fast and Furious.
U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled that the Department of Justice’s prior release of information related to Fast and Furious invalidated President Obama’s claim that releasing details of the program would cause harm.
“The Department itself has already publicly revealed the sum and substance of the very material it is now seeking to withhold. Since any harm that would flow from the disclosures sought here would be merely incremental, the records must be produced,” Jackson wrote. Continue reading »
Just when we thought the surreal story surrounding Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s second capture couldn’t get any more bizarre, it does just that, but in an oddly satisfying way, one which ties the soon to be incarcerated criminal south of the border with a criminal located right inside Washington D.C., one who however will never be punished. According to the Hill, a .50-caliber rifle recovered from El Chapo’s hideout was one of the firearms lost by the U.S. government’s gun-smuggling operation Fast and Furious. Continue reading »
