From the CCRKBA . . .

President Joe Biden appears more determined than ever to make gun manufacturers vulnerable to frivolous lawsuits in the hopes of bankrupting the firearms industry, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

On July 4—a day when the president should be leading the nation in celebrating its 247th anniversary—Biden was instead capitalizing on violent crimes over the holiday weekend in an effort to push his gun prohibition agenda. In a statement from the White House, Biden declared, “It is within our power to once again ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, to require safe storage of guns, to end gun manufacturers’ immunity from liability, and to enact universal background checks.”

But CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb said Biden is once again trying to penalize tens of millions of law-abiding citizens and devastating an industry because he is incapable of doing anything meaningful about violent crime. He is trying to deflect public attention away from his policy failures, and his son’s legal problems with drugs and a serious gun law violation, by blaming gunmakers and honest gun owners for crimes they did not commit.

“Biden’s proposals amount to smoke and mirrors, and deflection away from his, and his party’s, monumental failures to prevent crime and hold criminals responsible,” Gottlieb stated. “He would have us believe that banning the most popular rifle in America, locking up guns and allowing expensive, but meritless, legal actions to financially devastate gun companies is the solution to America’s violent crime problems.

“He doesn’t dare admit that the thousands of laws already on the books—pushed through Congress and state legislatures by members of his own party—have failed miserably,” he continued. “He is continuing to scapegoat gunmakers and gun owners, and in the process he and his handlers are trying to destroy Second Amendment rights, which have been the backbone of liberty in this country for more than two centuries. And the only thing he has actually accomplished is to fuel more gun sales with his gun ban rhetoric.

“The thing Biden and his cronies have underestimated, and which makes them furious,” Gottlieb observed, “is the willingness of American gun owners to fight back. Rest assured, CCRKBA will not stand idly by while this administration tramples on the Constitution.”

  1. Only threat to herr biden and his criminal organization is honest folk with guns.

    Scares him and his minions.

  2. Gotta do something to get peoples attention away from fuking COCAINE in the Whitehouse and THE “Whistleblower” resurfacing… So RANT about “gun violence” and go on a “Bribemnomics” tour, yeah that’ll work… Put them ALL in jail… FJB

    • Haven’t you heard? It’s comedy gold on the mainstream news networks. They’re making every kind of joke about the situation, except, you know, the most obvious joke which is that Hunter is an admitted coke head. That joke just isn’t allowed. But otherwise it’s apparently hilarious because the administration funds agencies to arrest other people that do things like that. Just ask Cacklin’ Kamala how hilarious it is to arrest people for the exact same thing that you do.

      • Funniest one I’ve heard so far… “That can’t be Hunters coke, Hunter doesn’t do coke, Hunter smokes CRACK”… Dumbass didn’t even know that crack IS cocaine…

  3. “Biden declared, ‘It is within our power to once again ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, to require safe storage of guns, to end gun manufacturers’ immunity from liability, and to enact universal background checks.”

    if it was within your ‘our’ power it would have already been done and you would not be making the same old tired ‘talking points’ speech over and over and over.

  4. Everyone can make money now a days very easily…dd…..I am a full time college student and just w0rking for 3 to 4 hrs a day. Everybody must try this home online job now by just use… This Following Website.—–>>>

  5. Every single person that considers themselves Democrat needs to understand that regardless of how you personally view any of this stuff…the more the left pushes, the the right wants Trump. That is actually the only reason he gets attacked like he does. The left just wants him off the playing field.

  6. We just had a ‘Lyft’ driver gunned down up the road in D.C. by four thugs. Tell me again how we’re to survive these gun/magazine bans?, oh we’re not supposed to survive these assaults?

  7. Karine Jean-Pierre lied to the American people. (my note: I’m kinda thinking Hunter Biden is some where in this)

    • Must have been one of those really rare moments when she actually answered a question…


    • Look at you preaching when you have about the worst case of TDS I’ve seen. 2019 vs 2023. Compare and contrast. Also, you don’t understand politics half as well as you think you do if you still think it’s about the individual politician.

      • plus he still hasn’t figured out where the caps lock key is… which is odd because obviously he knows where it is because, well, look at his name with upper and lower case.

        • Well, he can certainly find it when he types in NTexas… I think he’s partially deaf and people have to yell at him so he can hear and he just naturally yells back

      • “2019 vs 2023. Compare and contrast“

        “OK Jim, let’s go to the big Board and check the numbers!”

        “Consider these comparisons of 2019 versus the first three months of 2023:

        Unemployment rate: 3.7% on average in 2019, 3.5% so far in 2023
        Average hourly earnings growth: 2.9% compared to 3.2% annualized rate
        Share of 25 to 54 year olds working: 80.0% then vs. 80.5% now (both are averages)
        What they’re saying: Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell “has been dying for the economy to look like it did in 2019 and today’s jobs report is basically like a really strong 2019 one,” tweeted Peachtree Creek Investments’ Conor Sen on Friday.

        Yes, but: The differences are important, too. Both job growth and labor force participation are notably speedier now. The labor force has risen by 588,000 people a month so far this year, compared to 125,000 a month in 2019.

        Relatedly, job creation has been faster this year, with an average of 345,000 a month versus 163,000 a month in 2019.
        And most importantly, now the robust job growth and steady earnings of 2019 occurred against the backdrop of significantly lower price inflation, so those rising wages translated into rising living standards.”

        Bidens administration is far outpacing the Trump administration’s job creation rate:

        “The labor force has risen by 588,000 people a month so far this year, compared to 125,000 a month in 2019“

        So Biden’s job creation rate has been over 4x trumps rate comparing 2019 to 2023.

        Yeah, but what about labor participation rate, that’s the real Measure!

        “Labor force participation rate for people ages 25 to 54 in May 2023 highest since January 2007
        JUNE 07, 2023
        The labor force participation rate for people age 16 and older was 62.6 percent in May 2023. That was 0.7 percentage point below its February 2020 level, before the COVID-19 pandemic began. The labor force participation rate for people ages 25 to 54 has returned to its pre-pandemic level. The rate was 83.4 percent in May 2023. The last time it was this high was January 2007. The labor force participation rate for women ages 25 to 54 was 77.6 percent in May 2023, 0.6 percentage point above what it was in February 2020“

        Wow, it’s back up to 2007 levels, those glory days right before President Cheney and the Republicans crashed our economy with the Great Recession of 2008.

        Dude, it’s clear now why the Republicans want to talk about Hunter Biden (who has never been a part of our government) and somebody’s stash of Coke they lost on their White House tour.

        • OMG, everything’s great!

          My retirement account has grown about — oh, wait a sec, no it hasn’t, it’s lost a good deal of value since 2021.

          Gas prices are back down to 2019 levels — umm, wait, no they’re not.

          Well, at least inflation has been beaten back to below 2% — oh, wait again, that’s not happening.

          Biden is trying to sell ‘Bidenomics,’ but Americans can’t afford the president’s agenda —
          Reaganomics was a blueprint for letting the free market work. That’s something Biden and Democrats fail to comprehend. To them, more government is the answer, regardless of how stifling.

        • “Yeah, but what about labor participation rate, that’s the real Measure!”

          The labor force participation rate in the United States remained unchanged at 62.6 percent for the fourth consecutive month in June 2023. source: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

          Labor participation rate, Feb 2020 = 63.3%

          Cherry-picking your stats again, Liar69er?

        • Stop projecting your willful ignorance onto others. You’re one of those people who would lie to everyone (including yourself) until the bitter end. The Puppet Administration is counting on drones like you. We had an official recession last year. Did you know that? The administration never admitted it, and the propagandists tried to change the definition of a recession in real time. Now why would they think they could get away with that? Low IQ/ignorant/evil people like you make it possible.

          Based on the Bureau’s data, the real average weekly earnings for May 2023 went down, once inflation is factored in. That’s a straight 26 months of decrease.

          Compared to the same month year-earlier, the change in real average earnings has now been negative for more than two years. March of 2021, the third month of Joe Biden’s presidency, was the last time real average weekly earnings rose (up 4.1%) over a 12-month period.

          The Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Center for Microeconomic Data today issued its Quarterly Report on Household Debt and Credit. The Report shows an increase in total household debt in the first quarter of 2023, increasing by $148 billion (0.9%) to $17.05 trillion. Balances now stand $2.9 trillion higher than at the end of 2019

          I’ll make a separate comment with some BLS links showing real wage growth. It looks like all comments with links get moderated now. Yet the spammers still get through somehow.

        • Real Earnings – May 2023
          Real average hourly earnings increased 0.2 percent, seasonally adjusted, from May 2022 to May 2023. The change in real average hourly earnings combined with a decrease of 0.9 percent in the average workweek resulted in a 0.7-percent decrease in real average weekly earnings over this period.

          Real average hourly earnings down – LOOK AT THIS CHART

        • More of my willful projection:

          “Private sector jobs surged by 497,000 in June, well ahead of the 267,000 gain in May and much better than the 220,000 estimate.
          Leisure and hospitality led with 232,000 new hires, followed by construction with 97,000, and trade, transportation and utilities at 90,000.”

          Dark Brandon owns you losers again, all the Republicans are talking about is public urination and drag shows, they are incapable of understanding economic reality, much less charting a sane path for America.

        • “More of my willful projection:

          “Private sector jobs surged by 497,000 in June …”

          … and that number will be revised downwards in a few weeks, as the real job numbers are “unexpectedly” lower than was initially reported.

          “Leisure and hospitality led with 232,000 new hires …”

          Let’s see — it’s summer. I wonder if there’s a connection? Did you hear that this past July Fourth was the most-traveled holiday in recent years? I wonder if any of those travelers used hotels or motels or went to resorts during their summer vacation?

          “…the Republicans … are incapable of understanding economic reality …”

          The Repubs are incapable? Since you’re the self-described economic x-purt here, lie to us about the job participation rate again. Or lie about the real average hourly earnings “increase” that was negated by inflation. And don’t forget the lie that gaining jobs back that were lost during the Wuhan Fluhan were “created” by Biden.

          Goddamn, Liar69er — you really must think that we’re all as stupid as you are. You’re a proven liar; anyone reading your posts should assume up front that you’re lying and 99% of the time, they won’t be wrong.

        • Inflation?

          More pesky facts:

          8 of the top 10 states with the highest inflation rate? The Republican-led states of Mississippi, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Alabama, Texas, Arkansas, Florida and Utah. 8 of the top 10 states with the highest poverty rate? The Republican-led states of Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, West Virginia, Alabama, Kentucky, South Carolina and Oklahoma.

          The Republicans’ plan to continue making poor folks poorer and rich folks richer is working very well for the wealthy 1%, not so much for you and me.

        • “Inflation?”

          Yeah, inflation. You can obfuscate and cherry-pick all you want, but the fact is that the US didn’t experience our current rate of inflation when Trump was President.

          “The Republicans’ plan to continue making poor folks poorer …”

          If you hadn’t noticed, the Donks are in charge, and they were in control of economic policy 2019-2021, setting the stage for today. This is Biden’s economy, and he and the Donks own it fully.

          Americans Have Historically Low Trust in Biden Officials To Prevent Economic Meltdown

          “When asked how confident they were in the president “to do or to recommend the right thing for the economy,” 64 percent of respondents said “only a little” or “almost none.” Fifty-four percent do not trust Yellen or Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell to manage the economy well. Many of the economic leaders Gallup included in the poll are at or near the lowest confidence ratings recorded in 20 years.” —

          Choke on that, Liar69er.

          Interesting that you don’t have any response for all of the lies that we’ve proven that you’ve told. Interesting — but not surprising.

        • Republican-led states aren’t the ones in control of the money supply, fool. Do you enjoy being or pretending to be an ignorant lapdog? Fetch Miner. Fetch. Good boy! Now jump. Bark like a dog. Who’s a good boy? Maybe someday you’ll at least try to be a man.

    • News flash NTexas , they certainly do want to take care of your SSA. It funds NASA and Fema when needed and only the good Lord knows what else.
      you do not idolize politicians however you demonize Trump.
      You still think your vote matters, 555🤪

      • “they certainly do want to take care of your SSA“

        Yep, the Republicans do want to cut your Social Security, and Medicare as well:

        “The proposed budget would effectively make cuts to Social Security by increasing the retirement age for future retirees. The document seeks to assure people that there would only be “modest adjustments” but does not list what Republicans think the new retirement age should be.

        On Medicare, Republicans propose requiring disabled Americans to wait longer before getting benefits and turning Medicare into a “premium support” system, a long-floated Republican idea that essentially turns the government program into a voucher scheme. Such a scheme would remove the guarantee for seniors to have affordable access to Medicare.“

        But rich folks, don’t you fret!

        The Republicans have a good solid plan of wealth-care for you:

        “As far as taxes go, the party wants to make permanent the individual provisions of Trump’s tax cut bill, which gave a roughly $49,000 annual tax cut to the top 1 percent and only $500 to those in the bottom 60 percent. In doing so, they’d add nearly $2.5 trillion to the deficit over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office. The party also wants to eliminate the estate tax, which only impacts those who inherit assets worth at least $13 million.“

        • Liar69er, no citation of your source?

          Let’s just cut to the chase — you’re a liar.

        • “On Medicare, Republicans propose requiring disabled Americans to wait longer before getting benefits and turning Medicare into a ‘premium support’ system, a long-floated Republican idea that essentially turns the government program into a voucher scheme. Such a scheme would remove the guarantee for seniors to have affordable access to Medicare.“

          First, a ” ‘premium support’ system” is not a “voucher scheme”.

          In a ‘premium support’ system the federal government would provide a payment on behalf of each Medicare beneficiary toward the purchase of a health insurance plan – either a private plan, similar a Medicare Advantage plan, or traditional Medicare. In other words, the federal government would pay for what ever health insurance the Medicare receipt chose including Medicare.

          Seniors on Medicare collecting social security now have to pay for it, it costs them something each month and that is deducted from their social security payments. In a ‘premium support’ system the federal government would essentially pay for it by not deducting the payments (either whole or in part) from the social security payment. And for ALL on Medicare that do not pay for it it would continue to be free, plus the government would pay for what ever qualified health insurance they selected.

          Each time you pay for Medicare or a comparable plan (e.g. Medicare Advantage) you are essentially ‘purchasing it’ again by your payments each month. The ‘premium support’ system picks that up for Medicare or a comparable plan (e.g. Medicare Advantage).

          Its not a ‘voucher’ towards, its the government paying for it. And for those other qualified plans not Medicare or Medicare Advantage types, you purchase those on an annual basis by your payments each month, so for example, once a year you apply to have the government pay for it for a year and in this sense its ‘somewhat voucher like because the government gives you a payment thing to use) but its still government paying for it.

          This is sometimes called a defined contribution or voucher approach. But its not a voucher scheme.

          This is not a new idea, the idea was created by Obama for use in Obamacare but the democrats and Obama decided against it so it did not get included as they wanted the health insurance companies to profit.

          Thus a ” ‘premium support’ system” is not a “voucher scheme”, but rather its more like Obamacare on steroids.

        • to Booger Brain

          You can use deflection and play all the games in semantics you want to but you cannot lie your way out of the fact that if the Republicans plans were implemented Social Security and Medicare would cease to adequately take care of elderly people or be affordable to them.

          As a matter of fact the current levels of financial support are so low many people still go bankrupt over health care. This does not happen in all the civilized industrialized countries of the world that have Socialist programs that prevent this from happening.

        • Booger Brain you retarded Moron on average over 150,000 American die each year because they have zero health care and a lack of affordable preventive health care which is also one of the major causes of early death.

          The American life expectancy has been steadily going down now for years which again proves you do not know your ass from a hole in the ground.

          “The researchers were charged with documenting how Americans have more diseases and die younger and to explore the reasons why.”

          “Not only do families lose loved ones too soon, but having a sicker population costs the country as much as $100 billion every year in extra health care costs.”

  10. BREAKING 2A NEWS: In major “assault weapon” ban case in front of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, a powerful legal brief in support of the 2nd Amendment has been filed by FPC


    Are ghost guns frequently used in violent crime????????????????


    Yes, ghost guns are increasing being used in shootings across the country.

    In July 2020, an individual who was prohibited from possessing guns allegedly murdered two people in Pennsylvania using a homemade 9mm handgun.9

    In November 2019, a 16-year-old shot five of his classmates at Saugus High School in California—two of them fatally—using a homemade handgun, before fatally shooting himself.10

    In August 2019, a shooter used a homemade gun kit to build a .223-caliber firearm that he later used to fire 41 shots in 32 seconds in a bar in Dayton, Ohio, shooting 26 people and killing nine.11

    In 2017, in Northern California, a man prohibited from possessing firearms ordered kits to build AR-15-style rifles. On November 13, he initiated a series of shootings that began with fatally shooting his wife at home, followed by a rampage the next day during which he fired at multiple people in several different locations, including an elementary school, killing five people and injuring dozens more.12

    In 2013, a shooter opened fire in Santa Monica, California, shooting 100 rounds, killing five people, and injuring several others at a community college using a homemade AR-15 rifle. Reporting indicates the shooter had previously tried to purchase a firearm from a licensed gun dealer and failed a background check, potentially indicating why he opted to order parts to build a gun instead.13

    Law enforcement officials around the country are sounding the alarm about the dramatic increase in the recovery of ghost guns at crime scenes in their communities. ATF reported that approximately 10,000 ghost guns were recovered across the country in 2019.14 Ghost guns have also been illegally trafficked to Mexico.15 In addition:

    In 2019, Washington, D.C., police recovered 115 ghost guns, a 360 percent increase from 2018, when they recovered 25 ghost guns, and a 3,733 percent increase from 2017, when only three such firearms were recovered.16

    In 2019, ATF reported recovering 117 ghost guns in Maryland with almost 25 percent recovered from Baltimore alone. Ghost gun recoveries in the state then tripled in 2020.17
    According to law enforcement in Philadelphia, ghost gun recoveries in that city rose 152 percent from 2019 to 2020.18

    The special agent in charge of the ATF Los Angeles Field Division reported in January 2021 that 41 percent of the division’s cases involve ghost guns, and a May 2019 statewide analysis in California found that 30 percent of all guns recovered in connection with a crime in the state did not have serial numbers.19

    In addition, an investigation by The Trace found that ghost guns are increasingly becoming the weapon of choice for violent white supremacists and anti-government extremists.20

    In conclusion the ATF is a law unto itself and as in the past it rules at 8:00 AM and it is then a new “regulation” (disingenuous term for new law) is now the law of the land at 5:00 PM.

    No Judge Conservative or Liberal will declare the ATF ruling illegal or Unconstitutional because ghost guns are a danger to the people of the country and even the much ballyhooed Scalia decision with the usual double talk and smoke and mirrors declared “The Courts had the right to regulate firearms” (slick disingenuous term for ban or restrict firearms).

    In conclusion your right to own a weapon rests with the rulings of the courts, not the Constitution, and history has proven this reality like it or not.

    No sane person would want ghost guns legal and no other civilized nation tolerates them.

    • More bullshit and outright lies from the resident asshole.

      Bill [dealing with “ghost guns”] is a step toward creating a gun registry

      “…in real life, guns are rarely left at crime scenes, and the few times they are, it is usually because the gunmen have been seriously injured or killed. With both the criminal and weapon present at the scene, police can solve these crimes without registration or serial numbers. In the exceedingly unusual instances where registered guns are left at the scene, they aren’t often registered to the person who committed the crime. …

      “So why push so hard for these serial numbers on metal blocks? Federal law prohibits the creation of a national firearm registry, but the Biden administration has made one anyway. As of the beginning of last year, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives had collected nearly 1 billion firearm purchase records. It created a searchable digital database containing 866 million transactions, including 54 million made in 2021. The point of serial numbers on homemade guns is to make sure that they will be included in the database.”

  12. Weakening requirements to carry a concealed firearm increases violent crime
    Recent studies have concluded that right-to-carry laws are associated with double digit increases in homicides and violent crime.

    A 2022 study found that right-to-carry laws increase firearm homicides by 13 percent and firearm violent crimes by 29 percent.

    A 2019 study concluded that the adoption of shall issue or right-to-carry laws were associated with a 13 percent to 15 percent increase in violent crime rates a decade after implementation.

    A 2017 study found that shall issue laws were associated with a 10.6 percent higher handgun homicide rate.

    A 2022 study found that states weakening concealed carry laws and allowing individuals convicted of violent misdemeanors to obtain a license to concealed carry was associated with a 24 percent increase in the rate of assaults with firearms. “In general, violent crime increased after states loosened concealed carry permitting requirements,” said lead author Mitchel Doucette. “Allowing more individuals to carry concealed guns in public—including some who would have previously been denied carry permits due to prior arrests or restraining orders—can increase inappropriate use of firearms in response to interpersonal conflicts, disputes, or other situations.”


    • Never met a lefty website that you didn’t love, eh, asshole?

      Do Right-to-Carry Concealed Weapons Laws Still Reduce Crime?

      Conclusion: Late adopting states issue fewer permits than early adopting states, implying less of a risk to criminals and a smaller reduction in murder rates. Limiting the sample to recent years causes the estimated coefficient on the right-to-carry dummy to switch from negative to positive, making it appear that these laws increase murder rates when in fact the coefficient is reflecting the smaller reduction in murder rates associated with fewer permits. Researchers studying the effect of right-to-carry laws should use all the data available and limit the comparison states to primarily may-issue states. —

  13. Still trying to figure out why the idiots want to ban a class of firearms used in less than 5% of crimes. Been hearing the you don’t need an AR argument since the late 1970’s. The AR-15 is one of the best varmint rifles I’ve ever used. The AR-10 is a great rifle for deer, elk, hogs, and other medium to large game. Light, accurate and potent enough to make a clean kill without destroying the pelt or ruining too much meat.
    Next, the disarmament crowd love to bring up the militia clause. So, I ask would it not make sense for potential militia volunteers to have rifles compatible with government/military stores? It would make basic supply and logistics much less complicated if those volunteers had rifles that use the same ammunition as the organized militia and regular military.
