Here’s the thing; I haven’t always been a gun advocate. After the school shooting at Columbine in 1999, I adopted the view most liberals still cling to; gun reform is necessary for our country, and long overdue. Then, during my senior year in college, something happened that altered my paradigm entirely.
I was out with fraternity brothers at a local bar celebrating the end of finals. There were eight of us drinking our problems away like countless Coeds before us. This night occurred in the early 2000s to give you a frame of reference. Nothing was out of the ordinary for the first few hours, but right around eleven, things went south and changed my lens forever.
The Second Amendment Foundation, filed a federal lawsuit against New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy earlier in the week alleging deprivation of rights under color of law, indicated in a news release late Tuesday it is “working on lawsuits against Washington, Massachusetts, and jurisdictions in California and North Carolina, among others.” [Read more…] about SAF Filing 2A Lawsuits Over “Pandemic Panic”
The billionaire-backed Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun control lobbying group—which was co-founded and bankrolled by former presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg—has sent an email blast to presumed supporters, asking for donations to help elect gun grabbers in 2020. Liberty Park Press obtained a copy of the email. [Read more…] about Alarm: Everytown Gun Control Lobby ‘Needs Your Help’
Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden has announced he would tap avowed gun grabber Robert “Beto” O’Rourke—who wants to forcibly seize legally owned firearms—as his Gun Control Czar. The disastrous result would be a roll back of our Second Amendment rights and a potential uprising from those targeted by the unconstitutional act.

If there is one thing the Democrats are good at, and consistent about, it is lecturing the American people about thing while doing the exact opposite. Elizabeth Warren was recently interviewed by WMRU’s Adam Sexton. During the interview, Warren claimed that a huge tax on ammo would be “good for communities of color.” Wouldn’t a tax on the Second Amendment do exactly the opposite? [Read more…] about Warren Wants to Up Ammo Prices With New Tax
Billionaire presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is in trouble, and it might be surprising with who. He’s running as a Democrat, yet he’s got many Democrats furious and on top of that, his $11 million anti-gun-rights Super Bowl advertisement is being seriously challenged for accuracy. [Read more…] about Bloomberg’s Super Bowl Ad Uses Fake Facts
The managing director of litigation and national enforcement policy at anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety complained Friday to WDBJ News that the rapidly expanding Second Amendment Sanctuary movement could “short-circuit the Democratic process.” [Read more…] about Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement Could ‘Short Circuit’ Gun Control
Democratic presidential candidate New York Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is attempting to claw his way up from the bottom of the 2020 Presidential polls by promising to pack the Supreme Court with “pro-gun control judges” if elected president.

Newly-empowered Democrat state lawmakers in Virginia are reportedly threatening action in the Commonwealth’s 78 counties that have so far declared themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuaries” if police and sheriffs do not enforce gun control laws passed in Richmond in 2020, according to the Washington Examiner. [Read more…] about Democrats Threaten Sanctions Over Gun Control
Proposed legislation in Massachusetts would treat gun ownership like a disease. A joint state House and Senate hearing on a gun bill that would treat gun ownership like a disease was scheduled Dec. 10, and the Massachusetts Gun Owners Action League—an affiliate of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA)—has been sounding the alarm. [Read more…] about Mass. Gun Bill Treats Ownership Like Disease
Gun control advocates are a scary lot to begin with, but The View’s co-host is taking it to a new level. After the backlash created by Beto O’Rourke’s exclamation of “Hell yes we are gonna take away your AR-15s and AK-47s!”—a statement that was echoed or championed by every other Democrat running for president—antigunners are advocating to “keep your plans secret until you are elected and ready to confiscate guns!” Fortunately, advocates for the Second Amendment are pushing back.

In a war of one-upmanship, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is leading most polls, but what about the battle to be the most anti-gun candidate? I am not sure whether Warren is in the lead on that front after Beto’s “Hell yes, we will take your AR-15 and AK-47s!),” but she is certainly in the running to trample our Rights and ability to defend ourselves. A couple months ago, Sen. Warren penned her positions on gun control. There was not much new — licensing of gun owners, waiting periods, increasing taxes on guns and ammunition, limiting firearm purchases, raising the minimum purchasing age, banning so-called “assault weapons” and full capacity magazines. [Read more…] about Warren: The Battle to be the Most Anti-Gun Candidate
By opening an impeachment inquiry, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) likely crushed any notion of a path forward on gun legislation. White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said the move “destroyed any chances of legislative progress.” If, there are any positives coming out of the circus in Washington, it may well be an ineptness at passing legislation. That would normally be a negative. However, when it comes to gun control, “Release the clowns!”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is trying to distance himself and other Senate Democrats from firearms confiscation talk offered during presidential debates—but, they’ve already signed on… [Read more…] about Primary Debates Label Gun Manufacturers ‘Enemies’
While gun rights activists are burning up social media in the aftermath of Democrat presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s on-stage admission that his gun control plan revolved around confiscation of modern sporting rifles, the more alarming part of that dramatic moment for Second Amendment advocates may have been the cheering audience. [Read more…] about Beto: ‘Hell Yes, We’re Going to Take Your AR-15’ and the Crowd Cheers
Megan McCain went on The View. Not sure why anyone to the right of Mao would do that, but she did. While there, she openly and directly stated the confiscation of guns, specifically AR-15s “would result in violence.” Her message was meant to explain to the gun banners that Americans will tolerate bloviation but not implementation of certain things—and gun confiscation is high on that list.

As the argument surrounding gun control and the Second Amendment occupies daily space in the mainstream media as anti-gun zealots — especially House Democrats — resort to increasingly outlandish claims in order to get the attention they seek. Most recently, U.S. Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.) compared the current campaign to force new gun restrictions through Congress to efforts by some state and local governments to ban plastic straws. [Read more…] about House Democrats Focus on Straws, not Solutions
Seattle’s southern neighbor, Tacoma, Washington, is going to weigh a plan that’s already proven to be a failed policy. But since its anti-gun, city council members think it is worth adopting. City Councilman Ryan Mello proposed that Tacoma adopt Seattle’s so-called “gun violence tax” plan that would levy a $25 tax on firearms, a two-cent-per-round tax on .22-caliber or less, or five-cent-per-round for all other ammunition that’s sold at retail.

Politicians making sweeping promises they can’t keep is nothing new on the campaign trail. The vitriol as of late — assigning blame for the horrific crimes of sick and twisted individuals to the firearms industry – is something that has become, unfortunately, predictable. It’s part of the political gamesmanship from those who don’t understand our industry or respect our rights or the values for which our industry stands.
