Your Marxist Moron of the Day

The Left has never, and will never grasp the concept of Natural Rights

 Rep. Marjorie Decker, a Cambridge Democrat, made at the hearing as she was testifying in support of various gun control measures and against bills she said would erode Massachusetts’ status as the state with the lowest rate of gun deaths.

“It is a privilege that we allow individuals to hold onto something that causes harm and death,” Decker said. “It is a privilege to have a car license, it is a privilege to have a gun license.”

Jim Wallace, executive director of the Gun Owners Action League, said Decker’s comment illustrated frustrations lawful gun owners feel in Massachusetts.

“One of the problems that we face here in Massachusetts is that the Second Amendment is barely recognized in the state as a whole and certainly not as a civil right. I could not have asked for a better witness to that than the previous legislator that actually described our civil rights as a privilege,” Wallace said. “I am aghast that an elected official would actually say that … but that’s not unusual.”

Can you say unfit to serve?

Translating Hillary Speak

Oh goody, Hillary is back, and speaking “truth to Power” on guns. Allow me to share her words, and what she really means

She has thought a lot I bet. Thought about how to best exploit the evil act to push for more gun control. Tragedy Pimping Hillary. Note what she did not mention

The man who shot the evil shooter, nor the man who helped chase the shooter. No mention of their bravery. No mention of better security at churches, and other soft targets. And no mention of why this evil son of a bitch was not serving a lengthy prison sentence for committing violent acts?

NEW BRAUNFELS, Tex. — He beat his wife, cracked his toddler stepson’s skull and was kicked out of the military. He drove away friends, drew attention from the police and abused his dog. Before ——— entered a rural Texaschurch with a military-style rifle, killing at least 26 people on Sunday, he led a deeply troubled life in which few in his path escaped unscathed.

In 2012, while stationed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico, ——- was charged with assault, according to Air Force records, which said he had repeatedly struck, kicked and choked his first wife beginning just months into their marriage, and hit his stepson’s head with what the Air Force described as “a force likely to produce death or grievous bodily harm.”

“He assaulted his stepson severely enough that he fractured his skull,” said Don Christensen, a retired colonel who was the chief prosecutor for the Air Force, adding, “He pled to intentionally doing it.”

Shouldn’t such a person receive a lengthy prison stay for such barbarity? Isn’t that the most basic job of government? To protect the innocent from people who are convicted of violent felonies? Did Hillary mention that? Frankly, is anyone mentioning that? Why did Hillary say we ought to stop prosecutors that allow violent people to plead down so that they barely serve any time?

Prosecutors withdrew several other charges as part of their plea agreement with ——–, including allegations that he repeatedly pointed a loaded gun at his wife.

He was ultimately sentenced in November that year to 12 months’ confinement and reduction to the lowest possible rank. His final duty title was “prisoner.”

Sorry, there is no excuse for such as this. Prosecutors should care about putting such evil people away, legislature ought to care about making mandatory sentences, lengthy, sentences, for such violent acts. Again, let me ask what prison sentence this deserves (emphasis mine)

In 2012, while stationed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico, ——— was charged with assault, according to Air Force records, which said he had repeatedly struck, kicked and choked his first wife beginning just months into their marriage, and hit his stepson’s head with what the Air Force described as “a force likely to produce death or grievous bodily harm.”

“He assaulted his stepson severely enough that he fractured his skull,” said Don Christensen, a retired colonel who was the chief prosecutor for the Air Force, adding, “He pled to intentionally doing it.”

Why would such a person ever get out frankly? Shouldn’t such violent people be sent away, permanently? Argue all the gun laws, background checks you like, and yes, the background checks need to be improved, especially the reporting part of it. But the ONLY way the evil bottom feeder in Sutherland Springs does not commit that evil act was if his ass would have been in a prison cell.

Seriously, why is no one mentioning this?

Note! I do not print the names of cowardly evil people who comit such acts of barbarity. 

Democrats being Democrats

There they go again

Proposing useless laws that will do squat to deter or reduce crime. Of course those are not their aims are they?

Democrats are firm believers in never letting a good crisis go to waste. It’s why they started talking about blocking gun sales to people on the no-fly list after Orlando, despite the shooter not being on the no-fly list, and universal background checks after Sandy Hook, despite that killer stealing his guns. In addition to the disaster that is the current ban on bump-fire stocks bill, House Democrats have pulled some shenanigans of their own.

They think the time is right to ban online ammo sales, standard capacity magazines, and to require dealers to report anyone who buys two or more guns during the same five-day period. In other words, the standard anti-gun wishlist.

House Democrats have introduced a number of new gun control measures in the wake of a deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Among the proposals are HR.3962 to ban online ammunition sales, H.R. 4025 requiring gun dealers to report the sale of two or more rifles to the same person in a five-day period, and HR. 4052, which would ban magazines able to hold greater than 10 rounds.

“Several of my colleagues and I have introduced commonsense legislation that, if enacted, would reduce gun violence and the tragic impact it has on our communities,” said U.S. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, the New Jersey Democrat sponsoring the Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act.

Coleman’s proposal is much like a state law approved last year by voters in California in the respect that it would require federally licensed ammo dealers to directly confirm the identity of those buying ammo over the Internet by verifying a photo I.D. in-person. Also, the measure would require the vendor to report any individual sales of more than 1,000 rounds in a five-day period to the U.S. Attorney General. Garnering 29 co-sponsors, all Democrat, the measure has been referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.

Mark Kelly, who knew an astronaut could be so foolish?

Kelly seems unable to grasp that every criminal, and yes, every murderer, and mas shooter, and terrorist care not one thing about laws. Evil people will walk over, through and around every law passed. They will do so because they are intent on murder and evil deeds. Mark Kelly, though fails to see the forest for the trees

Mark Kelly was a name few people knew until his wife, Rep. Gabby Giffords was shot by a deranged madman. Since then, he’s been a tireless crusader for gun control, if not the brightest. Now, the former astronaut is saying that members of Congress who oppose gun control should just quit.

Kelly, a retired astronaut, husband of former Rep. Gabby Giffords and co-founder of gun control group Americans for Responsible Solutions, spoke on the issue during an Off Message podcast interview with Politico’s Edward-Isaac Dovere.

“I think if you’re a member of Congress and you fundamentally believe laws don’t work, you should quit,” Kelly told Dovere. “I mean, you really should. You’re in the wrong job. And that goes for anything, including this issue.”

“They are acknowledging that legislation matters. A lot of these folks have been saying it doesn’t matter, it will never matter,” Kelly said. “They have just turned that argument upside down. And that’s a good thing. You know, maybe people have to be educated, right?”

Ah yes, another leftist calling for “education”, perhaps Kelly could do everyone a favor and heed his own advice? As Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms notes, Kelly is ignoring reality

Kelly has constructed quite the strawman argument here.

It’s a strawman because pretty much no one believes laws don’t “work.” Instead, what gun rights proponents have claimed is that additional gun laws will not work to reduce crime when criminals get their guns through illegal means. Believing that additional gun laws are a waste of time is hardly the same as saying laws don’t work.

Again, laws are meaningless to evil doers.

Yet I also note that Kelly, like so many other anti-gun crusaders, says little about the causes of violence. It’s like he doesn’t really care about what causes violence in this country. Does he only care about banning the device that hurt his wife?

Don’t get me wrong, I can empathize with that. If someone hurt my wife, I’d be furious and want revenge against something, anything, as well.

Targeting guns with his ire, however, is fruitless. His wife’s shooter was a deranged monster who wanted to hurt and kill as many people as possible. Denied a firearm, he would simply have turned to another instrument, possibly a more deadly one. Don’t claim that they don’t do this either because we know better.

Even strict gun laws in Europe have not stopped evil people intent on commiting evil acts. Disarming citizens will not stop those evil people either. But it will make their evil aims easier to carry out. People like Mark Kelly will never accept this reality because they are convinced that firearms are to blame somehow. Odd, that an astronaut could be so bright, you have to be sharp to be an astronaut, yet so foolish at the same time

And the Left is tragedy pimping again

Reprobates! Asshat Manny Gomez is a former FBI agent, he knows he is lying here. Want to guess his true agenda? I think we know. Of course he is targeting uninformed Americans with this propaganda. He figures he can scare enough people with his lies to bring the changes his Statist heart desires.

Former FBI agent Manny Gomez claimed on MSNBC on Monday that hunters use suppressors so that deer cannot hear the gunshots.

“Sportsmen, hunters would make an argument that they need that so that their target, whether it’s a deer, etc. don’t hear the shot,” Gomez claimed, “but numerous other sportsmen have shot from muskets–when the founding fathers started the Second Amendment–up until now successfully killed game animals without the use of a silencer.”

Good freaking grief! Bullets travel faster than the speed of sound. A deer, or any game animal will hear the shot that kills them after they are hit. But his lies do not stop there. There is no such thing, say it with me, no such thing as a silencer. These devices suppress, and do not come close to totally muting the sound of a gunshot. Again, this clown knows this, yet he chooses to deceive. But he does not stop there

the former FBI agent claimed that crime will increase if suppressors are made more widely available.

“It gets us more assassinations and a higher crime rate,” Gomez said of efforts to loosen regulations on suppressors. “Silencers were made for one purpose and one purpose alone–that’s nefariously kill people with little evidence and little to no sound.”

I could say he is stricken with Nuclear Grade Stupidity Syndrome, but, again he knows what he is saying is wrong. So why do gun owners want silencers suppressors? It is very simple. People going to a gun range use eye and ear protection to protect their eyes from flying shell casings, and ears from the sound, which is very loud, and will destroy your hearing. But what if you carry a firearm? What if you are forced to use your firearm for self-defense? You will likely not be wearing your hearing protection, so a suppressor would silence decrease the decibels from the gunshot(s) and could very well save your hearing. 

I corrected someone at work on the statements about “silencers” that village idiot Hillary Clinton made today. They had no idea what a “silencer” really was. Now they do. It is important that we never allow such baseless lies to pass without being corrected.

 

Again, Leftism is an Ideology of Convenience

You might think a member of the Cult of Gun Control would never own a firearm, right? WRONG! Tom Knighton explains how Activist Camiella Williams practices a right she seeks to strip from others

Camiella Williams is also a gun owner.

MITCHELL: Williams says she brought home her first gun when she was only 12. Over the next few years, she says she ran wild. But a lot of her friends started getting shot. And when she was 18, she had a baby, a boy.

MITCHELL: I got a closer look at this at her home. She told me about an incident there one evening this summer.

WILLIAMS: In front of my house.

MITCHELL: Right here in the driveway.

WILLIAMS: In the driveway. I could see my son riding back and forth.

MITCHELL: On his bike. Suddenly, she says, he came back. His hand was bleeding.

WILLIAMS: Like, what? Did you fall? He say, no, the neighbor shot me. I say, shot you? He was like, yeah, with a BB gun. And he knew who did it.

MITCHELL: An older kid, 18. Williams went right to his mother.

WILLIAMS: She tried to say, what you going to do, beat my ass? And I looked at her, and she said, you’re blowing my high right now.

MITCHELL: Williams tells me she seriously considered doing something she counsels others against.

WILLIAMS: Maybe I should grab my protection, my gun.

Mitchell is NPR’s Chip Mitchell who reported on this.

First, let’s be clear here. Williams supposedly bought her first gun at 12. That means she broke the law by purchasing that gun. It also means she, better than anyone, should understand that gun laws will not stop people from getting guns. After all, if a 12-year-old can buy a gun, it shouldn’t be too hard for anyone else to pick one up on the black market.

Further, she still has a gun while acting as a crusader against gun rights. That makes her a hypocrite.

Of course, she addresses that. When asked about the inconsistency in her position, she responds, “The people that will probably say that live in safe communities, never experienced the losses that I’ve experienced.”

Ah, the hypocrisy, the “rights for me but not for thee” mindset of the left. Knighton shares the most important aspect of Williams rank double standards. Like many anti-self-defense activists, she KNOWS what she is doing will hurt people, good people

What galls me the most is that she knows guns are the best means of protecting herself and her family.

But she does not care. She has an agenda, so screw the rest of us.

 

Explaining the Rhetoric of The Cult of Gun Control

Liars gonna lie as Bearing Arms’ Tom Knighton explains

Leave it to the gun grabbers to never let the facts get in the way of a good argument. After all, reality has a pesky way of undermining their so-called “facts” when anyone looks deeper, so they don’t give anyone enough information to really understand what they’re peddling.

Take, for example, this story at The Huffington Post.

He asserts that in the wake of these attacks, there are new calls for gun control. Maybe his staff found some obscure story on Fox or Brietbart or Guns.com and came up with this idea, but I work closely with gun violence prevention groups and what he says is simply not true. Our message is consistent, and I’ve seen no spike tied to the events in Europe.

Morgan [Griffith] makes the ridiculous false equivalent that terrorists using cars as a weapon are the same as this plague of gun violence. It’s the same flawed “whataboutism” we see from him and his ilk time after time. Sure, a hammer or a knife or a toaster for that matter can be used to kill someone. But hammers and knives don’t kill 90 people a day. As tragic as the terrorist incidents involving cars are, making that comparison is flawed and insulting.

The author of this post is right. Hammers and knives don’t kill 90 people per day.

But neither do guns.

Not only are the lies easily refuted, they are old and tired

The total number of homicides in 2015–the most recent year we have numbers for at this point (new ones should be coming out soon)–was 15,696. That’s just a smidge over 43 homicides per day.

Total.

In other words, even if every single homicide was committed with a gun, the author’s numbers are still wildly inaccurate. Yet anyone with a half a functioning brain cell understands that not all homicides are committed with a gun. Further, not all of those homicides are actually crimes. The FBI’s statistics deal primarily with charges, not the outcomes. Cases like this one are counted as homicides but are later ruled as self-defense, thus making the count of actual homicides for the year reduced.

Go read it all.

Should it matter that Trump’s new communications director is a member of the Cult of Gun Control?

Perhaps it may have no bearing on his job or how he does it, but, still, I would prefer  someone who respects natural rights. I am funny that way I guess. The Right Scoop has more, including some tweets that uh, well, are detestable

scaramucci-gun-ontrol-

Good Freaking Grief! Am I to believe that Trump could not find someone who has a core belief in the most basic human right, that of self defense? But it is OK now, because the tweets were deleted? Sleazebag! Sorry but I would not hire this guy to take out my garbage!

Dana Loesch tells the truth, Cult of Gun Control, dim-witted Senator Chris Murphy hardest hit

First the video that “triggered” the Whiners Brigade

Sorry, but is anything wrong with this? Loesch condemns violence, without calling for any violence in response. Of course, the left is using this to bash gun owners, the NRA, Conservatives, and anyone with a clue.

Of course, as Jenn Jacques notes Senator Chris Murphy lost what are left of his marbles in outrageous outrage!

Dear God, these people are horrid.

Liberal Connecticut anti-Second Amendment Senator Chris Murphy loves to push the envelope with his inflammatory gun control narrative, but his response to the latest NRA ad featuring Dana Loesch calling for Americans to stand up to the violent left with “the clenched fist of truth” is despicable… even for him!

Murphy redefines pathetic. He knows better, but, with Leftists, over the top rhetoric is king I suppose. And, given Murphy’s long history of lying about the right to own firearms, school shootings, violent crimes and about groups like the NRA, well, this is just par for the course. The man is an idiot

Good Freaking Grief!

If you have to lie to prove your point………..

…….then your point is worthless frankly. Further, if you must lie to prove your point, then you have nefarious motives. The Cult of Gun Control proves these two truths extremely well as Bearing Arms notes

It is one of the most well-worn tactics of those who advocate for gun control. Step one, acquire statistics on firearms injuries among children ages 0-14. Step two, combine these relatively low numbers with the far greater numbers of firearms injuries involving juveniles and young adults ages 15-19. Step three, present the resulting statistics as the shocking number of “children” (ages 0-19) who are subjected to “gun violence” each day/week/month/year. Step four, use the disingenuous statistics to advocate for handgun bans/registration and licensing/storage restrictions.

This week’s iteration of this ploy comes courtesy of a team of researchers who presented their work at the 2017 Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting, held May 6-9 in San Francisco, Calif. Titled, “Pediatric Hospitalizations due to Firearm Injuries in the U.S. in 2012,” the chief conclusion of the report is the researchers’ contention that 16 children are hospitalized each day for firearms injuries. The researchers relied on data from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’ Kids’ Inpatient Database (KID), which tracks pediatric hospitalizations.

The 16 “children” a day statistic was widely disseminated by an uncritical press, but a deeper look at the abstract reveals how the researchers concocted this alarming factoid.

Juveniles and young adults ages 15-19 comprised an overwhelming 83.6 percent of the “children” hospitalized with firearm injuries in 2012. Moreover, two-thirds of the injuries sustained by the individuals in this age group were the result of an assault.

The majority of those, I would bet are gang-related, but, in any case The fact is that this very slanted “research” is being used to push more useless gun control, and ignores facts that an honest study would have noted

Obviously, no one wants a single child to be injured with a firearm, but Silver’s flippant remark ignores the vast progress made in preventing unintentional firearms injuries among children. The unmistakable trend revealed by data from the Centers for Disease Control is that unintentional fatal firearms injuries among children have been falling for decades, as the number of privately owned firearms has increased.

CDC data shows that in 2015, the total number and rate of unintentional firearms deaths among those ages 0-14 were tied for the lowest observed since 1981 (the earliest year for which such data is available in CDC’s WISQARS database). The rate of unintentional firearms deaths among those ages 0-14 in 2015 was less than a third of what it was in 1995, and less than a sixth of what it was in 1981. In 2015, the CDC recorded 48 unintentional firearm deaths among those ages 0-14. This a tragedy to be certain, but it is an average of .13 such deaths per day. With an estimated population of 61 million between the ages of 0-14, the likelihood of a child dying from an unintentional firearm injury is less than 1 in a million.

The sad thing here is that our media tends to report such studies without fact-checking them, or adding pertinent information that puts the study in context. Also, many people hear about such a study and never bother to look into the results of said study. In short too many fall for these lies because they accept media reports that mislead. This is why we, as defenders of facts, and the right to keep and bear arms must take every opportunity to correct the falsehoods of the Cult of Gun Control

Concealed Carry is WAY up, violent crime, Cult of Gun Control hardest hit

Via Bearing Arms

In addition to being history’s greatest gun salesman, Barack Obama did the best job of convincing John Q. Public there really is a need for concealed carry. John Q. paid attention and turned out by the thousands. Also under Obama’s watch the last two concealed carry hold-out states – Wisconsin and Illinois – passed laws permitting residents to carry a concealed firearm.

Of course the Birkenstock Brigade fought it in both states warning of dire consequences, casually ignoring the other 48 states not experiencing any problem with concealed carry permit holders. So far, no blood running in the streets, no concealed carry permit holder shooting someone over a parking space or any of the other dire warnings that were issued by Democrats prior to the law’s implementation. What did happen is John Q. turned out in droves and signed up for concealed carry.

According to a recent article in Breitbart, concealed carry permits rose 215 percent between 2007 and 2015, and the murder rate dropped 14 percent during that same time period. Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) data shows there were 14.5 million permit holders in May 2016 and approximately 15.7 million in May 2017.

In the CPRC’s latest annual report which covers 2015, it notes the number of concealed handgun permits issued that year set another record, an increase of 1.73 million permits issued, slightly higher than the previous record of 1.69 million. Currently about 6.06 percent of the approximately 248 million adults in the U.S., have a concealed carry permit.

Of course the Cult of Gun Control will ignore these numbers, so it is our duty to share them with everyone we can. Also share this nugget. Indiana, has the highest percentage of adults registered as CHL holders with 15%. Now we know that the Cult blames Chicago’s rampant violent crime and murder on Indiana because Indiana has such “lax gun laws”. The next time someone uses that line ask them why those Indiana guns are not causing havoc in Indiana. Watch them squirm while they are confronted with logic. Hopefully they will think about that question and begin to think about the rest of the lies the Cult spews

So, just how bad is California’s new gun control law?

As Bearing Arms reports, it is worse than bad. It is a convoluted, draconian morass of Leftist idiocies. And, oh yes, it is all about registration, which folks who understand history know will lead to, confiscation. Yes, it is bad

This morning, the State of California released their language regarding their assault weapons and high-capacity magazine bans.

In the document, the state mandates all firearms they consider to be “assault weapons” must be registered with the Department of Justice:

Any person who from January 1, 2001 to December 31, 2016 inclusive, lawfully possessed an assault weapon that does not have a fixed magazine as defined in Penal Code section 30515, including those weapons with an ammunition feeding device that can be readily removed from the firearm with the use of a tool (commonly referred to as a bullet-button weapon) must register the firearm before January 1, 2018.

The Golden State is considering anything without a “fixed magazine” the size of the pistol grip to be an assault weapon. The focus is primarily on those who build their own AR-15 style pistols.

Residents are then required to go through a number of crazy steps to make sure their firearm is in compliance:

  1. In order to be legally registered, the firearm has to have been legally acquired on or before December 31, 2016.

  2. Each gun owner would have to establish an account under the California Firearms Application Reporting System (CFARS). The following information must be provided:

    • Full name
    • Address
    • Telephone number
    • Date of birth
    • Sex
    • Height
    • Weight
    • Eye color
    • Hair color
    • Military identification number (if applicable)
    • CA driver’s license or identification card number
    • United States citizenship status
    • Place of birth
    • Country of citizenship
    • Alien registration number (if applicable)
  3. The following information would have to be provided on each firearm that falls under their definition of an “assault weapon”:

    • Firearm type, make and model
    • Caliber
    • Firearm color
    • Barrel length
    • Serial number
    • All identification marks firearm
    • Country of origin/manufacturer
    • The date the firearm was acquired
    • The name and address of the individual from whom or business from which the firearm was acquired
    • Clear digital photos of firearms listed on the application.
      • One photo shall depict the bullet-button style magazine release installed on the firearm.
      • One photo shall depict the firearm from the end of the barrel to the end of the stock if it is a long gun or the point furthest from the end of the barrel if it is a pistol.
      • The other two photos shall show the left side of the receiver/frame and right side of the receiver/frame.
  4. If you’re like most families, you probably share your firearms amongst yourselves. If that’s the case, each family member who will be shooting the firearm must be registered as well. One person who have to be identified as the “primary registrant,” while others must register as “joint registrants.” To be a “joint registrant” you must live at the same address as the primary registrant. Everyone who is registered must be 19 by December 31, 2017.

    • Only direct family members (parent to child, child to parent, spouses) are allowed to be joint registrants.
    • Joint registrants have to provide proof of address showing they live with the primary registrant.
  5. You’ve gone through the above steps but wait. You’re not done yet! The CA DoJ will provide each of your firearms with a specific serial number. You must then take your firearm and your new serial number and have an FFL engrave it on your firearm.

  6. Once the serial number is engraved on your firearm, you have to provide pictures to the DoJ showing the serial number was completed.

  7. Pay a $15 fee per firearm to register your gun. There are no limits to the number of firearms that can be registered in a single transaction but the DoJ can deny your application for any reason.

  1. I told you it was bad. This is a wet dream for the Cult of Gun Control, which of course, is obsessed with control, of you. The Left has long loathed the natural right of self-defense, and the natural right to own and carry firearms. These two rights are the most fundamental of our natural rights. No wonder the Left, which is Collectivist, despise these individual liberties. The Left has long sought to eradicate the right of armed citizens, because that right is the backbone of all the others. No one anywhere is truly free if not allowed to keep and bear arms. Both sides understand this. The legislature of California has chosen to actively begin the process of disarming its citizens. That is what lies at the end of this path.

Does any group lie more egregiously than the Cult of Gun Control?

The gun control movement, like all movements of the Left lie, they have to because the truth is to the Left what holy water is to vampires, but it may be what I call the Cult of Gun Control that dives the deepest into the lying pool. Jenn jacques catches their latest scammery

Just when you think the gun control agenda couldn’t stoop any lower, they outdo themselves yet again.

The Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence’s newest ploy to shove unnecessary and excessive restrictions on law-abiding gun owners involves a little child’s play. In a video introducing a new gun control mascot Teddy Gun, ICAHV claims teddy bears are held to strict safety regulations… more strict than firearms.

That’s why we’ve launched the Teddy GunTM. A highly provocative product that aims to expose the discrepancies in relaxed gun regulations, and create constructive conversation, and ultimately political pressure, for common sense gun laws.

Lies, lies, and more LIES!

“Teddy bears need to follow strict safety manufacturing guidelines,” the video claims. “Scores of safety regulations. Ninety pages of requirements. Numerous rules. Across federal and state regulatory bodies. Unless that teddy bear is a gun.”

Although the Teddy Gun may be an expensive and creative marketing idea, it is a grossly inaccurate accusation against the firearms industry.

“The truth is the gun industry is one of the most heavily regulated industries,” reports the NSSF, reminding everyone of the more than 20,000 state, federal and local laws currently regulating firearms. “Firearms and ammunition, while exempt from the CPSA, are subject to the same product-liability laws as other products.”

Keep in mind that the folks pushing these lies know they are lies, so, ask yourself what is their real agenda

Noted Gun Control Cultist sets new record for number of lies in one paragraph

The Left does not hold the truth as a value, Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action gord one step farther. She worships at the Altar of Falsehoods In her op-ed for Teen Vogue for example

In her op-ed, Watts advises young women to hate the NRA for keeping American lawmakers ever-reminded of their oath to uphold and defend the United States Constitution which includes the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

In part because America has something else no other developed nation has: a gun lobby that pushes for extreme “guns everywhere” policies while lobbying against common-sense gun laws. The National Rifle Association — which used to be an organization of sportsmen and hunters — boasts some of the most powerful lobbyists in America, working to pad the pockets of gun manufacturers by fighting even modest efforts to close loopholes in our gun laws. As a result, dangerous people are able to get their hands on guns — no questions asked.

Hmmm, guns everywhere? If Watts means the NRA supports the Constitutionally protected natural right to carry arms for self-defense she is right. She hates that right and she hates to talk about the number of times guns are used by law-abiding Americans to defend themselves annually. The lies keep coming and Bob owens does a good job at setting the record straight go read it all

Will California Democrats try to ban all semi-auto rifles?

It would not surprise me in the least. It is a given that the Marxifornia Democrats are all member of the Cult of Gun Control, so this comes as no surprise

Recently, Gun Owners of California’s (GOC) Executive Director Sam Paredes had a frank conversation with Breitbart’s AWR Hawkins, and told him to buckle up for an all-out ban on semi-automatic long guns in the coming legislative session.

According to Paredes, the “assault weapons” and bullet button bans passed in 2016 were only a stepping stone toward California lawmakers’ real goal of banning all semi-automatic rifles.

“These laws are the tip of the iceberg here in California. We expect they are going to introduce legislation to totally ban semi-automatic long guns in California. They will do this because they know we will come up with a new way to beat their latest ban–the ‘bullet button’ ban–if given time.”

“They had a bill for this last year that we were able to kill. We think they will bring it up again and they will also introduce legislation to put in place a one-gun-per-month of any kind purchase limit. This limit will apply whether it’s a handgun or a long gun, in order to try to slow down the sales of guns in California.”

This is a wet dream for the Left of course, and other “Progressive” states will follow suit. I think the best hope is that the voters  in California will start throwing out any bums that support these draconian measures

Why yes, the Clinton campaign is sleazy

Leaked emails released by WikiLeaks show how depraved Team Clinton is

Via Fox News

The Hillary Clinton campaign came under fire from Erica Garner on Thursday, the daughter of Eric Garner who was killed by a police officer in New York City, after the latest batch of emails released by WikiLeaks revealed how the Democratic presidential nominee talked about her father’s death.

In a series of tweets, Garner expressed anger at the information that poured out from the email release.

“I’m troubled by the revelation that you and this campaign actually discussed ‘using’ Eric Garner … Why would you want to ‘use my dad?” she said. “These people will co opt anything to push their agenda. Police violence is not the same as gun violence.

Garner also tweeted out links to hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta that show staffers trying to figure out how to word an editorial on gun violence that would later run in the New York Daily News.

The emails reveal how Team Corruption was trying to use Eric Garner’s death to push for gun control. They prove how little his actual death means to hacks like Podesta and the rest of Hillary’s cabal. The only thing that matters is whether or not these deplorables can use his death to push their agenda

Guns are to blame? No Thug Culture is

Two stories from Bearing Arms sum up what happens when a culture becomes rotten to the core.

First

Chicago boasts some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. It is also known as one of the most violent cities in America.

Instead of admitting the failure of Chicago’s gun control laws and admitting that there is a major violent subculture problem in the Windy City, however, Democrats are attempting to claim that their gun control laws are failing because gun controls in surrounding states are less strict.

Odd, isn’t it, that those guns do not cause problems in those neighboring states. That is, of course, because it is not the guns, it is the people thugs.

Video has surfaced on YouTube that shows a man in the Pilsen neighborhood opening fire on a passing car. The shooter then realizes that the people in the passing car are his friends.

The gunman yells out, “Aw man, my bad dawg!”

So, again, let it be stressed that shooting at passing cars is normal to this thug and his “friends”. Life is of so little value that random rounds can be fired into a vehicle on a whim? If Democrats want to stop “gun violence” then they have to address the culture behind it. And here is a hint, that culture will not be found at an NRA convention. Bob Owens has more

We’re looking at an example of a culture so casually violent that they feel justified in using deadly force not just to settle disputes, but because they didn’t recognize a vehicle driving down their streets, or because of a Facebook argument over a boy.

No gun law is capable of solving the problem of a hyper-violent, predatory subculture so slavishly devoted to carnage.

The second story Owens references above is detailed here

The trial of Vandetta Redwood begins in Chicago (IL) for allegedly giving her 14-year-old niece a .38 caliber revolver as a means of physically ending a Facebook dispute over a boy.

When the argument took place, around 20 people were around.

Redwood’s cousin, Donnell Flora initially provided the teen with the gun. She handed the gun back to Flora. That’s when Redwood took the gun and gave it back to the teen.

“Shoot that b***h,” Redwood told her niece as she handed over the revolver. Redwood’s own 12-year-old daughter stood nearby and watched the attack take place.

Redwood’s niece used the revolver to shoot to 14-year-old Endia Martin and Martin’s 16-year-old best friend. Martin was killed as a result of the shooting. Her friend, however, survived.

Again, a 14-year-old child is dead, another teens life is ruined, and why? The NRA? Lawful gun owners? Gun shows? No, this tragedy happened because of a culture that is rotten to its core. A culture so evil and destitute of any sense of values that an argument over a boy should cost a child her life. When life has no value, and thuggish deeds are not only excused, but encouraged, we must look at the culture behind that moral depravity. And we must take steps to address that moral depravity, its causes, and we must find its solutions. Those who look only to gain political points by using these events are no better in my view than those pulling the triggers. They are political vultures who want not solutions, but some gain for themselves.

Again, no sane person can blame the NRA, or the tens and tens of millions of gun owners who harm no one. No rational person can blame the millions of Americans who carry firearms legally for protection. The blame lies squarely at the feet of this inhuman culture of violence, and predation. The blame lies at the feet of those who excuse it, and at the feet of those who look only to blame gun owners to advance their obscene fascination with banning guns

Lady Gaga, another Liberal addicted to false narratives

Liberalism is an ideology of feelings, and of self-importance. If a Liberal “feels” something, it really does not matter if that Liberal is well-informed or has the facts on their side. It matters only that they can proclaim that they care, this showing how good a person they are. Take Lady Gaga, who apparently still thinks Trayvon Martin was cut down in cold blood

Singer Lady Gaga revealed in a recent interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe that the song “Angel Down,” which appears on her new album, Joanne, is about the highly publicized 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

“There an epidemic of young African Americans being murdered in this country. I was overwhelmed by the fact that people just stood around and didn’t do anything about it, and that the justice system continues to, over and over again, not seek justice for these families,” the six-time Grammy Award winning singer said.

“I have my ear to the ground of my fans, young African American women and boys who are terrified. … They tell me they drive in their cars, and when they hear a siren there’s a paranoia that runs through their body, that they freeze up that they can’t think.”

Well isn’t she just special? Martin was hardly an angel. He attacked George Zimmerman, and was in the process of pounding Zimmerman’s head off the sidewalk  when Zimmerman shot him in self-defense. The trial proved that convincingly. I remember watching the trial and thinking why was Zimmerman charged? The prosecutions own witnesses damaged the case against Zimmerman, and the evidence was all in Zimmerman’s favor.But, all of that matters not to Lady Gaga. Let us look again at her words

“There an epidemic of young African Americans being murdered in this country. I was overwhelmed by the fact that people just stood around and didn’t do anything about it, and that the justice system continues to, over and over again, not seek justice for these families,” the six-time Grammy Award winning singer said.

Well, yes there is indeed such an epidemic. But it is not armed citizens or police that are summarily executing Black people without any consequences. It is, in fact gang members, and wannabe thugs who are doing the overwhelming majority of the killings. Perhaps the singer might try speaking out on that fact, rather than painting police and armed citizens as guilty somehow?

“I have my ear to the ground of my fans, young African American women and boys who are terrified. … They tell me they drive in their cars, and when they hear a siren there’s a paranoia that runs through their body, that they freeze up that they can’t think.”

Again, most of the cases involve a gang member, or a person with a long record of violence, a person who has prior convictions, and who really ought to be in prison draws a weapon on police, and not just Black youth either. Many White youths are shot because they did not comply and show their hands, continually reaching where they might have a weapon, refusing to drop a weapon or actually pointing a weapon at police. What would famed self-defense and use of force expert Lady Gaga have police do? Come on Lady gaga, please share your infinite wisdom.

And please Lady Gaga, tell us at what point someone is allowed to defend themselves. And tell us at what point the responsibility for the vast majority of these shooting is given to the aggressors and not the person defending themselves and family or to police doing their jobs. I eagerly await your wisdom Lady Gaga. Or do you just prefer to to spout emotionally based narratives that are short on facts?

Yep, that is what I thought
