Gun groups denounce push for handgun licenses

handgun

By Tim Devaney – The Hill The National Rifle Association (NRA) and other gun rights advocates are assailing Democrats for a controversial legislative proposal that they say would restrict access to handguns. People would be required to obtain a license before purchasing some firearms under the Handgun Purchaser Licensing Act, which was introduced Thursday by Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) and a trio of Connecticut lawmakers. The legislation also seeks to expand background checks to all handgun sales and block people under the age of 21 from purchasing those firearms. States could refuse to implement the handgun regulations, but would risk losing federal funding for ...

free_speech_gun_blogs

What is crystal clear by now is that this president will continue to chip away at Americans’ Second Amendment rights in any way he can, until the day he leaves office You have to hand it to the constitutional law professor in the White House; when he goes for our founding document’s jugular, he goes for it big, or he doesn’t go for it at all. No tinkering around the edges for this progressive! In recent days reports have noted that new Obama gun control rules are set to come down the pipe that will amount to an assault on ...

kinopoisk.ru

Actor Vince Vaughn is one Hollywood star who seems to understand that personal security should not be dependent on the feelings or whims of another Just when conservatives have given up all hope that even a modicum of sanity still existed in Hollywood, here comes A-list actor Vince Vaughn to make us believe again. In a recent interview with GQ Magazine, as reported by Britain’s MailOnline, Vaughn said that firearms should be permitted in the nation’s schools, adding that gun bans are akin to banishing cutlery “to stop making people fat.” Vaughn, 45, made his comments in the context of ...

Gun buy-back schemes never work like they’re supposed to

gun_buyback

The goal with authoritarian, gun-hating liberals is always the same: Get more guns out of the hands of the people, period Another day, another liberal trying to get more guns out of the hands of Americans. As noted by Dr. John Lott, whose seminal work, “More Guns, Less Crime,” has long established the replicable link between an increased number of firearms possessed by law abiding citizens leads and lower violent crime rates, is particularly leery of so-called “gun buyback” schemes like one just offered by Connecticut Democrat Rep. Rosa DeLauro. It’s a bill that only gun control advocates could love, ...

Gun-grabbing states are trampling the Second Amendment

guns-confiscated

As anti-gun as the Obama administration has been, there is much more gun-grabbing taking place at the state level, even if you’ve never been convicted of a crime Fundamental transformation of America by the most Left-wing administration in the history of the nation is a 24/7/365 operation, as evidenced in the latest effort to grab more guns from the hands of honest Americans, Second Amendment be damned. As reported by Fox News on Thursday, the Obama regime isn’t the only enemy of the Second Amendment; Leftist leaning states and local governments are getting in on the action, too. One recent ...

The Second Amendment just got some (more) love in Texas

concealed_carry

Concealed and open carry laws save lives, even if Democrats in Texas say otherwise Liberals would love to turn the state of Texas blue, for if they were to accomplish that feat, it would virtually guarantee Democrat presidents well into the foreseeable future. But they haven’t succeeded yet, and honestly, their chances of doing fade with each successive Republican administration and legislature. Liberty got another boost in the Lone Star state earlier this week after the Senate passed a measure allowing gun owners the right to openly carry handguns. Already, gun owners were able to openly carry rifles such as ...

Anti-gun California could soon become a handgun-free zone

microstamp_ammo

Back-door ban? Law signed by ‘The Governator’ years ago could make firearms all but extinct in the Golden State As long as California remains part of the United States and the Second Amendment remains part of the U.S. Constitution, there is no way that the state could wind up with a complete ban on privately owned handguns – right? Wrong. As reported by Fox News, the deep-blue state with some of the nation’s most restrictive gun laws could be forced to adopt even more restrictive gun control depending on a judge’s decision in a federal lawsuit, say plaintiffs who are ...
