Was this ever really a question? . . . Proof CA Democrats Prefer Criminals Over Legal Gun Owners – “Thursday, in a move that absolutely defies the slightest semblance of logic, the Democrat controlled California State Senate passed a measure that will lower the sentences for felons who used a gun in the commission of their crimes. Yes, you read that right. They are reducing sentences for criminals using guns. These are the very same Democrats that constantly create and pass stricter and stricter gun control laws, and who constantly scream, cry and whine about how guns are bad.”
Remember, only media members are allowed to joke about shooting prominent individuals . . . Texas Governor Greg Abbott Makes Joke About Shooting Reporters – “The unrelenting Republican assault on the free press continued on Friday when Greg Abbott, the Republican governor of Texas, joked about shooting journalists. The joke was made not two days after a Montana congressional candidate, Greg Gianforte, assaulted a reporter instead of answering a question on health care. Abbott made his joke at a gun range, after signing a bill that lowers the fee for handgun licensing. Prior to that bill’s passage, Texas already had some of the nation’s friendliest gun laws, including one that allowed for concealed weapons on public college campuses.”

San Bernardino terror attack: Police describe gun battle with terrorist couple – “In total, the couple fired about 80 rounds from rifles and one bullet from a handgun. Officers fired 440 rounds from rifles, shotguns and handguns. Several nearby homes and cars were struck by bullets, but no civilians were hit during the shootout. Police scouring the SUV found a black backpack with 14 rifle and pistol magazines, a military-style ammunition container with 870 rifle cartridges that were loaded into 10-round clips, along with three rifle sighting systems and several bags filled with hundreds of ammunition cartridges.” So how’s that 10-round magazine limit working out for you, California?

Silly attempt to persuade ivory tower types using logic and reason . . . Guns on campus is progressive academia’s straw man – “It is a wonder how these professors ever go off campus. After all, there are over 1.15 million concealed handgun permit holders in Texas. Kansans don’t even need a permit to carry. Professors can’t go to restaurants, movie theaters, or grocery stores without being around legally carried concealed handguns. Despite being the subject of some national news coverage, these faculty departures are very rare. At the University of Kansas, only one out of 2,600 faculty members have left.”
Did anyone expect anything else? . . . Bloomberg Author’s Group Continues Established Pattern of Manipulation & Deception – “’Gun Safety Org Taps Book Professionals for New Advocacy Group,’ a Thursday Publishers Weekly fake news story proclaims. That’s an objective characterization, and here’s how you can prove it to yourself. First, note it appears under the “news” rather than ‘opinion’ heading, yet the article makes no pretense of obtaining any viewpoints other than those lauding the Bloomberg effort. Then we can look at the author, Claire Kirch, not a reporter, but a professional PR flack who openly admits “I want to make sure that the politics of the book agree with my politics” before she will agree to represent an author.”
