Parkland Survivor Criticizes Laura Ingraham For Only Apologizing After Advertisers Fled – Ingraham was a fool for apologizing. She should have known that these people are never satisfied and can never be appeased . . .
Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg on Friday pilloried Fox News host Laura Ingraham, declining to accept her apology after she mocked him for getting rejected from several colleges ― one of several right-wing attacks against the student activists of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

“She’s only apologizing after a third of her advertisers pulled out, and I think it’s really disgusting, the fact that she basically tried promoting her show after apologizing to me,” Hogg, 17, said on CNN’s “New Day.” “If she really wants to do something, she could cover inner-city violence and the real issues that we have in America.”
Why N.J. gun sales are rising again after the ‘Trump slump’ – Hmmm, let’s see. “Repeal the Second Amendment.” A new “assault weapons” ban. No gun sales until you’re 21 . . .
“There’s definitely a correlation between people’s perception of gun regulation and their likelihood and desire to buy guns,” said Joseph Blocher, a professor of law at Duke University who specializes in Second Amendment issues. …
“When gun owners see the clamor and hear the rhetoric, of course it makes them concerned,” said Scott Bach, executive director of the Association of New Jersey Rifle and and Pistol Clubs.
That may be part of the reason gun sales have begun to rise again in New Jersey and nationally, as politicians in Washington, D.C. debated banning bump stocks or implementing other gun control measures. For his part, Trump briefly entertained the idea of some modest measures, but then appeared to walk back his support.
Biden denounces ‘the prostitution of the Second Amendment’ by gun-rights activists – Please run in 2020, Joe. PLEASE . . .
“What’s happened here is the nation as a whole has decided it can no longer, in my view, continue to turn a blind eye to the prostitution of the Second Amendment here and can no longer turn a blind eye to the enormous damage being done not just in our schools but on our streets,” he added.Biden, considered a potential 2020 White House contender, said he was proud to see students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where a shooter killed 17 students and faculty last month, organize a “spontaneous” demonstration against gun violence without the aid of more seasoned politicians.
“This was totally, thoroughly, spontaneously on the part of the students; there was no adult inspiration for this. They insisted and that’s why guys like me who led in the gun issue did not show up to speak. We wanted to make sure everybody knew this was a spontaneous, thoroughly spontaneous effort on the part of young people,” Biden said.
So, as you can see, it was pretty much another Women’s March. It also helps when the Democratic Party, the Hollywood elite, the news media, and the scores of progressive organizations, who have already been pushing the March for Our Lives anti-gun initiative latch on and gather hordes of people who, whether they realize it or not, support shredding the Bill of Rights.
Yes, they’re vocal, but outside the liberal hubs of New York, D.C., Chicago, and LA—it’s a different story. In fact, fewer than half of those in high school support new gun laws; they still like their guns. They’re organized and Democrats winning the 2018 elections will yank their agenda items all the more closer to reality. We cannot let that happen.
I understand the political obstacles that face these anti-gunners. It’s very steep, but why even allow them to gain an inch. We have to act as if we don’t control Congress, the White House, two-thirds of the governorships, and 69/99 state legislatures. We need to have the mindset that we’re always down by a few touchdowns. Every year is an election year. Every issue is on the line. The Left is starting to get more organized and they have the money and enthusiasm to inflict a lot of pain on the Trump agenda come November. Let’s surprise them.
My armed guards aren’t killing children and don’t have semi automatic weapons.

Chelsea Handler Sniffs That Her Armed Guards Don’t Have Semi-Automatic Weapons. Twitter: Whaaaaaat? – Lots of gunsplaining ensued . . .
On Wednesday, supposed comedienne Chelsea Handler beclowned herself when she engaged in a gun control debate on Twitter, insisting that her armed guards didn’t have semi-automatic weapons.
Of course, this wasn’t the first time Handler had said something irretrievably stupid on Twitter, whether it was moaning about returning from her month-long skiing vacation,attacking White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ appearance, misrepresenting what Dr. Martin Luther King stood for, or accusing President Trump of setting the world on fire.
Still, this was a new nadir for Handler, who has no idea of what constitutes a semi-automatic weapon, and her elitist life with the protection of armed guards while condemning other armed guards didn’t sit well with people on Twitter:
Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens has raised a ruckus with a call to repeal the 2nd Amendment. It pains me to disagree with a lion of the court, but I think a repeal effort would be deeply misguided. It’s politically unwise and legally unnecessary.
Advocating for repeal, in essence, advocates for National Rifle Assn. leader Wayne LaPierre’s vision of the Constitution. But the 2nd Amendment doesn’t guarantee unlimited gun rights, and it never has. The Constitution is not a bar to sane gun legislation. A broken political system and a failure of will in Congress and statehouses are the culprits, not the words scratched on parchment two and a half centuries ago.
The Vermont Senate has passed a bill that will heighten restrictions on firearms, including raising the purchasing age to 21 for many people and banning high-capacity magazines.
The Republican governor has indicated he’ll sign the bill. https://t.co/TVwneId5ca
