Why the Stevens gun manifesto is beyond irresponsible – Mostly because it tells the world exactly what the anti-gun left really wants . . .
The notion that repeal would be simple is a fantasy. Two-thirds of both houses of Congress would have to craft the repeal, which would then have to be ratified by three-fourths of the states. That’s inconceivable in a country that has more guns than people, and laws in 44 states that permit open carry, even though the Supreme Court has never ruled that such a right is compelled by the Second Amendment.
Not only is repeal unattainable, it would also be ineffective and unnecessary. Despite Justice Stevens’ preposterous assertion that the Second Amendment is the “only legal rule” protecting gun sellers, 44 states include a right to bear arms in their state constitutions. And there are numerous laws both ensuring and limiting the rights of buyers and sellers.
NRA donations tripled after Stoneman Douglas shooting, reports say – See: Streisand Effect . . .
Donations to the National Rifle Association’s political fund tripled in the days after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, according to reports.
The NRA’s Political Victory Fund collected more than $779,000 in February 2018, CNN reported, citing reports from the Federal Elections Commission. That’s compared with the almost $248,000 in individual contributions in January 2018.
The Parkland massacre, which left 17 dead and another 17 injured, happened on Feb. 14.
The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, an independent research organization that monitors political spending, found that “the NRA received twice as much money from nearly five times as many donors in the seven days after the Parkland, Florida, high school shooting than it did in the seven days before the shooting.”
Pennsylvania student stockpiled arsenal, threatened school shooting, police say – That “arsenal” they found was made up of a crossbow, a ballistic vest and some ammo . . .
Officials in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, say it was another school massacre in the making. A foreign exchange student is under arrest for allegedly threatening to attack his high school.
Police say the 18-year-old exchange student An Tso Sun was reported for making a threat.
“He told a fellow student, ‘Don’t come to school on May 1 because I’m going to shoot up the school,’ and then he said, ‘I’m kidding,'” said police superintendent Michael Chitwood.

WATCH: Texas Police Department Has Intense Stand Off With Open Carry Activists –
The incident began on Monday when CJ Grisham, the founder of Open Carry Texas (OCT), put in a call to Olmos Park Police Chief Rene Valenciano. Grisham questioned Valenciano’s stance on open carry and whether or not open carry activists would have issues if a demonstration was held in the San Antonio suburb.
“Am I going to be forced on my face — if I open carry there — at gunpoint?” Grisham asked Valenciano.
“I’m not even gonna respond to that question, sir, that’s a very unreasonable question to ask,” Valenciano replied. “Provided that you have a license to carry a handgun and you are not committing any criminal activity, you don’t have anything to worry about.”
On Tuesday, Grisham and a handful of other open carry activists held a demonstration in Olmos Park to show their support for the Second Amendment. It wasn’t long before Chief Valenciano and other members of his department showed up to arrest demonstrators.
Retired Justice Stevens puts Democrats on a pin with call to repeal Second Amendment – Then really don’t want you to know what they’re actually thinking . . .
Democrats are panicking over retired Supreme Court Justice John Stevens’ comments on repealing the Second Amendment.
You know they’re panicking when they insist they’re not panicking.
It is one thing for the left to slowly, carefully, methodically gut the Bill of Rights by using the media and their children’s crusade as proxies.
But it’s quite another thing to honestly declare your intentions about repealing the Second Amendment, which is what Stevens — a Republican appointee but a liberal — is advocating.
And finally, your feel-good story of the day – Convicted Felon Shot Dead By Homeowner During Nashville Home Invasion
Homeowner Brent Bishop, 43, was away from his residence when two strange men entered through a rear door and struck his wife in the face. Moments later, Bishop arrived and noticed that the rear door was open. When he entered the kitchen, Bishop was struck on the head with a blunt object. He was ordered to open his gun safe and the robbers removed three long guns and a pistol. As this was occurring, Bishop’s wife fled to a neighbor’s house. The two robbers then left with the guns.
Bishop, unsure where his wife was, went to another room in the house and retrieved a pistol. He was outside looking for his wife when he encountered the robbers. During the ensuing altercation, Bishop fired on them, fatally wounding Adams. The second robber dropped the long guns and the pistol that had been taken from the safe and ran away. He remains at large.
