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 ...

What I think the Second Amendment Means

Amendment Means

The Supreme Court does not have the power to change the constitution in any way. Only the people of the United States can ever change the Constitution. The ‘life tenured’ justices have the power to interpret the meaning of the Constitution and if anything needed to be changed it would be to define the context under which the interpretation was to be conducted. There is no man alive today who can say with absolute certainty what was taking place in the minds of the men who drafted the amendments to the Constitution. Nevertheless, we can assume that it was pretty ...

nebraska-gun-girl

It’s considered so taboo in liberal education circles that many educators, teachers unions and Democrats must be apoplectic – the association of firearms with public schools School board members at the Broken Bow Public Schools have voted to allow those graduating in the spring to have their senior pictures taken sporting a gun, if they so desire ‘The board, I believe, felt they wanted to give students who are involved in these things the opportunity to take a senior picture with their hobby, with their sport, just like anybody with any other hobby or sport’ It’s considered so taboo in liberal education circles that ...

concealed_carry

One of the most violent ZIP Codes in Cook County – where Chicago is located – has the highest violent crime rates and the lowest number of concealed carry permit holders Demographics and poverty rates play key roles as well, according to researchers, but in many other parts of  the city where gun permits are higher, violent crime is lower New study appears to reaffirm Prof. John Lott’s more than decade-old original findings that again, ‘more guns equals less crime’ By Charles Greene It is interesting to look at the statistics regarding gun ownership, crime rates and the number of concealed ...
