This is the woman who walked through Kent State University carrying an AR after she graduated . . .
In an effort to protect their users from “abusive behavior,” Twitter has taken down Kaitlin Bennett’s pro 2nd Amendment photo sporting two pistols and placed her on a 12 hour ban.
Bennett, who is the Grassroots Director of Liberty Hangout, posted a photo to Twitter on Wednesday of herself holding two pistols behind her back with a caption that read “If I had a pistol for every gender there is. #2A #CampusCarryNow”
“When I woke up Thursday morning, I received a notification saying the post would be removed,” Bennett told The Daily Caller, “and that my features would be limited for 12 hours. During this time, I could not tweet or message anyone.”
Too bad. He probably would have been entertaining . . .
Davis seemed to have ingratiated himself with the anti-gun Left, positioning himself as a strong ally for the cause. As with many progressives, he was invited on Tucker Carlson’s show earlier this month and was pretty much taken to the woodshed. He also claimed that an AR-15 rifle could fire 150 rounds in 15 seconds. That’s not true, folks. Not even close. Micah also noted that Davis had a drunk driving arrest in 2013, which would have certainly been used in a campaign against him. Whatever the case, he’s done. As Micah wrote, Davis might not know much about firearms, but he does know what it feels like to drive while intoxicated.
Oh good…more anti-gun billionaires throwing money at the civilian disarmament movement . . .
Speaking at the Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy on Wednesday, philanthropist Laura Arnold announced plans to spend $20 million over the next five years to fund gun violence research. She and her husband’s foundation would look to raise an additional $30 million, bringing funding up to $50 million for a grant project called the National Collaborative on Gun Violence Research.
“Ninety-six people are killed by guns in the U.S. every day. More people have been killed in schools than in military deployment so far in 2018,” Arnold said. “While I was writing my remarks for today, 40 miles away from Houston another school shooting started.”
to new areas and residents are reaching their boiling point. A man was arrested after pulling a gun on a neighbor and shooting it during an argument.
Sixty-one-year-old John Hubbard is now under arrest, accused of opening fire and allegedly assaulting a neighbor who came to check on his property. The victim was injured, but was not shot. …
The lava flows are unrelenting and unpredictable. Ongoing tensions in Leilani Estates may have contributed to a shooting incident Tuesday.
Gun groups want a restraining order against Deerfield’s assault weapons ban before it takes effect in 2 weeks
Illinois has a preemption law. If that means anything at all . . .
Gun-rights advocacy groups are asking a Lake County Circuit Court judge to bar the village of Deerfield from enforcing its ban on assault weapons that is set to kick in June 13.
The ordinance enacted April 2 by the Deerfield Village Board gives residents until June 13 to turn in any guns that fit the village’s definition of assault weapons, remove them from the village or modify the guns so they’re no longer considered assault weapons. The ordinance empowers the town’s police chief to confiscate the assault weapons of anyone charged under the ordinance.
