Noted Statist calls NRA “Extreme”

AS Bob Owens puts it Diane Feinstein is a crackpot

During yesterday’s confirmation hearing for Supreme Court justice nominee Neil Gorsuch, California Senator Dianne Feinstein took dead aim at the National Rifle Association, branding the nation’s oldest civil rights group (founded in 1871) as an ‘extreme organization.”

Feinstein’s NRA comment came after she voiced her expectations that the Supreme Court will have final say on air and water pollution and just before she addressed employers who “[discriminate] against workers.”

CSPAN 2 aired Feinstein’s comments: “It is the Supreme Court that will have final word … [on] whether the NRA and other extreme organizations will be able to block common sense gun regulations, including those that keep military-style assault weapons off our streets.”

Crackpot rhetoric based on delusions and lies Owens explains

“Assault weapons” are of course a politically-manufactured term created by gun control fanatic Josh Sugarmann to describe any firearm that looks remotely like a military firearm, regardless of their actual function or capability.

Semi-automatic weapons (self-loading firearms that fire one shot per trigger pull) have been in common use in the United States for more than a century, having first been produced in large commercial quantities in the late 1800s. The semi-automatic action has been the most popular kind of firearm action for handguns for decades, and remains the most popular action type for rifles. Semi-automatics may soon become the most popular form of action for shotguns as well.

Feinstein and her dishonest ilk use the term “military-style assault weapons” in an intentional attempt to confuse the public.

“Assault weapon” is supposed to confuse the public into thinking that selective-fire military firearms are easily sold to the general public, which is an outright falsehood.

Selective-fire weapons such as assault rifles, submachine guns, and machine guns have been tightly restricted by the National Firearms Act since 1934, and while there are more than 240,000 registered “NFA” guns in civilian hands in the United States, they are almost never used in crime, with only two documented occurrences known. Further, the manufacture of new NFA firearms for the general public  was outlawed 31 years ago, when the Hughes Amendment passed as part of the Firearm Owners Protection Act in 1986.

Yes, you read that correctly: real military firearms capable of firing more than one shot per trigger pull have been banned for more than three decades.

Feinstein lies, and knows she lies because one her fondest wishes is to eradicate your right to arm yourself. Think about that!

When a Liberal says they are not against gun rights, what they really mean is

They want to shred your right to self-defense

Well in Birmingham, AL, gun control advocates and legislators held a press conference on Monday to announce an oncoming assault to the right to keep and bear arms.

Joining Frank Matthews, President of the Outcast Voters League, at the press conference was State Rep. John Rogers, who announced he is aiming to “fashion a bill that’s passable” to enact gun control in the state.

“We’re not against gun rights… [but] demand accountability and responsibility of gun owners,” Matthews said.

“I’m begging the law enforcement agency to come out and fight these gun laws… we need to stop the proliferation of guns,” said Matthews.

So, what would this “gun-friendly” bill do?

The changes the proposed act would make to current gun laws are:

  • Mandatory gun registration- owner has registration card that lists all weapons

  • No transfers unless done through a registration office

  • New purchases must be picked up at registration office

  • Mandatory gun safes; only registered owner will have combination

  • Mandatory gun safety classes

  • Open carry and concealed carry policies abolished

  • Waiting period for gun purchase extended to three months to allow all paperwork to pass

  • People under 21 prohibited from owning guns

  • Extensive mental evaluation

  • Mandatory liability insurance for firearms

  • Required reporting of stolen firearms within four hours of discovery

  • Ammo purchases made only for the caliber gun specified on registration

OK, so, what “right to keep and bear arms” would be left? NONE!

So pretty much everything is racist now

Yes gun targets are now, well, you know

GUNS.com-

The No More Black Targets campaign argues that shooting ranges and instructors should not use “menacing” black targets, and is petitioning to end the practice, citing trigger bias.

“Young black men are 3X more likely to be shot by trained shooters than their white peers,” notes the site for the campaign. “A disturbing potential correlation: The most popular target for shooters to learn to use their firearm is a black silhouette. Unconscious bias can be deadly.”

Good Freaking Grief! But perhaps the most asinine claim is this

The group references a study by University of Illinois researchers that concluded shooters were more likely to fire at a black target.

One of the researhers in that study, Yara Mekawi, told National Public Radio in 2015 that people were “quicker to shoot black targets with a gun relative to white targets with a gun. And…people were more trigger-happy when shooting black targets compared to shooting white targets.”

 

Senator Rubio fighting for gun rights in DC

Fighting for self-defense rights

Senator Marco Rubio’s resurrected Second Amendment Enforcement Act will ensure that law-abiding citizens in Washington, D.C. can exercise their Second Amendment right to carry a firearm, should it pass.

Emotionally charged anti-gunners are doing their best to keep the current stringent D.C. gun laws in place. Unfortunately, they don’t understand that federal laws, already in place, are more than sufficient to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals.

From the bill

Congress finds the following:

(1) The Supreme Court of the United States has confirmed that the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States protects a fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms independent of service in an organized militia.

(2) Federal courts have repeatedly found provisions of the gun control laws of the District of Columbia to be unconstitutional, most recently in the case of Palmer v. District of Columbia, 59 F. Supp. 3d 173 (D.D.C. 2014), which invalidated on Second Amendment grounds the District’s total ban on carrying firearms outside the home for self-defense. Despite these reproofs, District officials have repeatedly and publicly asserted their determination to continue passing laws aimed at curbing the exercise of the right to keep and bear arms by law-abiding residents and visitors.

(3) The law-abiding residents of the District of Columbia are deprived by local laws of handguns, rifles, and shotguns that are commonly kept by law-abiding persons throughout the United States for sporting use and for lawful defense of their persons, homes, businesses, and families.

(4) The District of Columbia remains one of the most dangerous large cities in the United States. The District’s gun control regulations interfere with the right of law-abiding residents and visitors to protect themselves from violent crime.

(5) Federal law already provides comprehensive regulation of the manufacture, sale, and possession of firearms, including the licensing of commercial conduct. These regulations apply in the District of Columbia, as elsewhere. The District’s attempt to expand upon these regulations with its own regulations has created a confusing, onerous, and inhibiting environment for individuals in the District who wish to engage in lawful commercial activities relating to firearms.

(6) Legislation is required to correct the District of Columbia’s laws in order to restore the fundamental rights of its residents under the Second Amendment and thereby enhance public safety.

It is tragic that bills like this are needed, but given the craven nature of the Cult of Gun Control it is no surprise. 

An end to “gun free zones” in Florida?

The concept of gun-free zones has been, as a crime fighting tool, an utter failure. As with every new strategy the Cult of Gun Control comes up with, gun free zones disarmed only those who obey laws. Those wishing to commit acts of evil simply saw these zones as easy targets. Not surprisingly, the vast majority of mass shootings have occurred in these gun free zones. Florida, it seems, may be ready to end this failed policy

Florida has been the target of two mass shootings in the past nine months; the Orlando Nightclub shooting which left 49 dead and the Fort Lauderdale airport shooting which left 5 dead.

In hopes of preventing yet another tragedy, two Republican state lawmakers introduced legislation this week that would eliminate gun free zones in the state.

If House Bill 803 or Senate Bill 908 is approved, Florida residents with a concealed carry permit – of which there are over 1.7 million – will be allowed to carry wherever they please…almost.

Federally imposed restrictions will still apply, and private property owners will still have the power to dictate whether guns are allowed on their premises.

Rep. Don Hahnfeldt, sponsor of HB 803, told the Miami Herald that “gun-free zones have been a failure” in the state and across the country.

Of course, the Cult of Gun Control resoonded with their usual fare. Easily refutable rhetoric. Scare mongering, and babbling about “making Florida more dangerous”

“These gun-happy legislators have gone too far. They are endangering the public, not protecting it,” Patti Brigham, coalition co-chair and vice president of the League of Women Voters of Florida, said in a statement. “The idea of allowing permit-holders to take their guns into bars is absurd and incredibly dangerous. And just why would we want permit-holders to take guns into polling places?”

Hmmm, I was still living in Florida when that state passed concealed carry. The dire predictions of “blood in the streets”, and “Wild West shootouts” never materialized after that law passed. It has been 30 years since concealed carry became law in Florida, 1.7 million Floridians carry firearms legally, and those predictions of doom still have not come true. Likewise, Stand Your Ground has not created havoc and mayhem in Florida. Of course, the Cult of Gun Control tried the lie that since stand your ground had become law, homicides in Florida had risen. I checked the numbers, and indeed, in Florida, and some other states with stand your ground laws, a specific category of homicide had indeed risen. That category? Justifiable homicide, AKA self-defense.

So, again, the Cult was lying, deliberately. And, please understand this. They lie knowing that laws allowing legal carry, and allowing Americans to defend themselves do not increase crime, in fact, the usual result is a decrease in violent crime. So, what is their agenda? Think about that question the next time some gun control carnival barker begins their rhetoric. Ask this question. If they have to lie to “prove” their point………?
