Hillary Clinton Slams AK Open Carry (a.k.a., “Chipotle Ninjas”)

In the video above, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton tells a bunch of financially forthcoming anti-firearms freedom folks that the Supreme Court is “wrong on the Second Amendment.” Mrs. Clinton is saying — force record — that the McDonald decision should be overturned. That landmark ruling “incorporated” Second Amendment protection for the right to keep arms for lawful purposes. And that means that . . .

How Donald Trump Could Get Rid of Federal “Gun Free” Zones

trump

Donald Trump attended the annual NRA Annual Meeting in Louisville, Kentucky. The local news carried pictures of rain and record crowds, three hour waits to get into the meeting room, thousands of attendees, and traffic snarled as people overflowed the Kentucky Expo capacities. I saw lines stretching for a quarter mile or more. The local press described the crowds waiting to register for the NRA events as even bigger, but they were moving faster. At the Leadership forum, before Trump spoke, a polished NRA VP Chris Cox made the announcement: The NRA is endorsing Donald Trump for President! It was not unexpected . . .

Jon Wayne Taylor: #anybodybuthillary Is Just As Bad An Idea As #NeverTrump

Donald Trump (courtesyt businessinsider.com)

Many people seem to think that this election has something to do with the protection of gun rights. It doesn’t. It doesn’t because one candidate, Senator Hillary Clinton, has made in clear by her words and by her actions that she will seek to curtail Americans’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms. And it doesn’t because the other candidate, Mr. Donald Trump, has no reason to make it about gun rights . . .Read More

After Successful Defensive Gun Use, Dallas Marine Embraces Texas Gun Culture

I recently wrote about how a former Marine fought off an attempted home invasion. Donnie managed to fire three shots. No one was hit. I ran into Donnie again at a local gas station. A large, powerful black man, he makes quite an impression. We shook hands and I told him that the article had been published. He hadn’t seen it yet; he is in the middle of a move. He didn’t say, but I suspect it was a decision precipitated by the aborted home invasion. He had lost my card in the packing shuffle. He asked me: How can I bear arms? . . .

Forbes: Hillary Clinton’s Gun Control Jihad Will Hurt Her in the General Election

With last night’s electoral victories, Hillary Clinton remains the Democratic Party’s presumptive presidential nominee. Barring cataclysmic legal troubles relating to her illegal emails or damning information about illegal activities recovered from deleted files — and maybe even then — Ms. Clinton will be asking the nation to elect her President. She will have to do so as a gun control crusader. Drawing on recent history, Forbes contributor Frank Miniter reckons her public embrace of civilian disarmament will hurt her chances . . .

National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) Press Release [via Ammoland.com]

Seven of 10 American voters do not support allowing crime victims to sue firearm manufacturers and retailers when firearms they made or sold lawfully after background checks are used illegally in crime. Instead, voters from across political parties and geographic regions back the defense that the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) provides the firearms industry. More than 70 percent of voters disagree with a position one presidential candidate has made a centerpiece of her campaign. Like that candidate, others running for federal office have chosen to run against and misrepresent this decade-old law that prevents crime victims from suing firearm manufacturers and retailers who have not broken any laws . . .

Chelsea Clinton: My Mom Wants A Pro-Gun Control Supreme Court Justice

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s daughter Chelsea isn’t a practiced politician. So this clip (not magazine) ends with some major league Sandy Hook-related anti-gun bloody shirt waving, rather than starting with it. But the younger Ms. Clinton certainly nails it in terms of revealing her Mom’s desire to appoint an anti-gun rights Supreme Court Justice. “It matters to me that my Mom recognizes the role of the Supreme Court when it comes to gun control,” Chelsea reveals, adding  . . .

“We need you to be able to use your executive powers to legislate that you can’t carry guns in cars, you can’t bring cars [guns?] in buildings that are not assured to carry them.” According to dailycaller.com that’s what an audience member at a campaign forum in Hartford, Conn. told Clinton. “We need executive powers to say we will fight for life and not kowtow to the sons and daughters of Charlton Heston,” he added (referring to actor and NRA Prez National Rifle Association. “Whoa, let the congregation say, ‘Amen,’” Clinton responded.

English Gun Law: a Colonial Import

Destruction of the Magazine at Delhi During the Indian Mutiny 1857-58

Gun control — restrictions on gun ownership — was not a common or popular phenomena in Europe until after the First World War. One of the most influential gun control laws was instituted in England and Wales in 1920. It has been the basis for a great deal of restrictions on the private ownership of firearms around the world, both in the Commonwealth countries and in Europe. These restrictions were not designed to protect the public from criminals. Rather, they were designed to protect the ruling class from revolution . . .
