Morse’s Bill Profiles African Americans While Claiming Gun Manufacturer Liability Bill Won’t Lead To Profiling
After concerns were raised over the possibility that Sen. John Morse’s (D-Colorado Springs) “Assault Weapon Responsibility Act” would force gun dealers to engage in profiling, Morse promptly denied the claim, despite precedent in the bill that would specifically profile and target African Americans. According to the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence, “African-Americans have the highest rates of firearm death (including homicides, suicides and unintentional | Read More »
Spending at Gun Point
In the days leading up to President Obama announcing his gun control plans, and now that he has, the focus of Republicans and Conservatives has been squarely on his ever-encroaching attack on the Second Amendment. As Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus stated on the President’s move, “He paid lip service to our fundamental constitutional rights, but took actions that disregard the Second Amendment and | Read More »
The Purpose of the Second Amendment
The President is ready to announce his plans to restrict gun ownership. Most likely, nothing the President proposes will do anything to stop a future Sandy Hook. We know the President understands he is putting Democrats in a terrible spot. We know because he did nothing after the Aurora, CO shooting in the midst of a political campaign. He had to wait so he wouldn’t | Read More »

The Accidental Point of David Frum
David Frum has descended further into deluded, smug surrealism. That occurs in anyone who thinks like Leftist, acts like a Leftist, feels like a Leftist but insists athwart reason and logic that she or he is quite the Conservative. Such is the case with Mr. Frum’s attempt to “Conservatively” agree with US Attorney General Eric Holder that America truly is a nation of cowards.
Cloture vote today on gun-grabbing, pro-lifer-hating Caitlin Halligan.
I got tipped this one by the Rick Perry campaign: surprised that I didn’t see this before. Halligan is up for a judicial appointment to the US Circuit Court of Appeals for DC, and she’s… well, read [for some reason, the link didn't work the first time]: Ms. Halligan’s confirmation has been vigorously opposed by the National Rifle Association, Gun Owners of America, and Committee | Read More »
The American People Are Fast Becoming More Furious.
“Can you see if these guns were all purchased from the same FfL and at one time. We are looking at anecdotal cases to support a demand letter on long gun multiple sales. Thanks Mark R. Chait Assistant Director Field Operations.” – Townhall.com The ATF went statistic-shopping in support of a proposed rule to limit the freedoms of firearm owners and dealers.

Today in Washington – August 3, 2004
Anti gun activist Elena Kagan’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court hits the Senate floor today. Ironically, this is the same day that the Washington Post reports that a federal judge in Virginia refused to dismiss a challenge to ObamaCare’s mandates. This case is going to the U.S. Supreme Court, yet many Senators are not willing to put up a real fight before this left wing extremist is | Read More »
Fact: Kagan is Anti-Second Amendment
President Obama’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court is hostile to the 2nd Amendment. That is a fact. Clear and convincing evidence in the public domain proves that fact. If you hear the left argue that Elena Kagan is not hostile to the 2nd Amendment, know that those claims are proven incorrect by Kagan’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee and her lifetime of anti-gun activism.

Mayor Daley points gun at reporter.
I understand that Mayor Richard Daley is a liberal Illinois Democratic politician – which is semantically equivalent to ‘pig-ignorant about guns’ – so let’s go over some of the basics for him about firearm safety. Let’s also discuss some core assumptions that Dick needs to embrace: GUNS ARE NOT TOYS. GUNS ARE NOT PROPS. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHETHER OR NOT A GUN IS | Read More »
Today in Washington, May 14, 2010
The Elena Kagan nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court is still in the early stages, but problems are emerging. Meet and greets for Kagan completed Day 2 and more one-on-one meetings are expected in the days ahead. Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Scott Brown (R-MA) sounded like supporters of Kagan after one-on-one meetings and had nice things to say about the nominee. Maybe they don’t even know that Kagan | Read More »

Kagan “Not Sympathetic” Towards Rights of the People
Today over at the Heritage Foundation Blog, The Foundry, Brian Darling begins exploring SCOTUS Nominee Elena Kagan’s rather poor record on 2nd Amendment rights. The issues arise from statements made by Kagan while she was a law clerk for Thurgood Marshall … Kagan, whom President Barack Obama nominated to the high court this week, made the comment to Justice Thurgood Marshall, urging him in a | Read More »
