Second Amendment

No, President Obama, It’s Not Easier To Buy A Glock Than A Book

Sean Davis, The Federalist

The president’s claim that teenagers can go out and grab Glocks more easily than they can find books or computers isn’t just false. It’s a pathetic attempt by an ineffective, lame duck president to hijack a service of mourning for his own unpopular political agenda.

Conservatives: We Need To Fight And Win The Election We Have

Some of our conservative friends can’t seem to stop wishing for the election they want, instead of concentrating on winning the election they have. However, despite this lack of ability to focus on winning, the tools to win are actually there, in a way they haven’t been available to Republicans in the past several presidential election cycles.

Louie Gohmert: America’s Last Hope To Preserve Constitutional Liberty

Rep. Louie Gohmert, one man with principles – and a gut level love for his country and constitutional liberty – can do what a gallery full of House Republican mice would never dare – get mad, get emotional, get angry and confront the Democrats about what really got 50 people killed in Orlando.

Last Night Democrats Admitted The Terrorists Have Won

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

The Democrats are conceding that Barack Obama’s policies have failed and the terrorists have won. By their own standard from the Bush era, they now want to curtail our constitutional rights because they are scared and admit neither their President nor their god Uncle Sam can keep them safe. But they’ll be damned if you are allowed to keep yourself safe.

Liberal Journalist Goes Shooting Once And Gets “PTSD”

If shooting leaves you in terror and gives you “PTSD” after a few minutes on a gun range don’t buy a gun, and for sure don’t try to take mine.

The Gun Control Farce

Thomas Sowell, Investors Business Daily

Virtually all empirical studies in the United States show that tightening gun control laws has not reduced crime rates in general or murder rates in particular. Is this because only people opposed to gun control do empirical studies? Or is it because the facts uncovered in empirical studies make the arguments of gun control zealots untenable?

The Chamber Of Failure Never Fails To Accomplish Nothing

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

After grandstanding and shouts of “do something!” the Senate had four gun control options on which to vote Monday night. None of them passed. Absolutely nothing was accomplished. As per usual, the Senate is back to square zero. The good news: At least the Democrats didn’t get their way.

Omar Mateen Becomes a Useful Soldier in Barack Obama’s War Against Guns

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

As a terrorist, Mateen would raise questions about why the terror watch list, on which he appeared, failed. As a gunman, Mateen would raise questions about why he could so easily get guns and do so much damage.

The Founding Fathers Would Not Have Objected To Assault Weapon Ownership

streiff, RedState

The idea that the government has the right to forbid you to own a specific type of weaponry is new, it is dangerous, and it is a trend that is foreign to the thinking of the Founders and traditions of the nation.

Anti-Gun Talk Dishonors the Dead and Wounded

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

The answer is not to attempt an impossible “make America gun-free” campaign. The answer is to recognize that facing terrorist attacks in “soft target” public places, that people who safely carry guns save lives.

Gay Gun Group: Shoot Back

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner

Pink Pistols spokesperson Gwendolyn Patton said, "This is exactly the kind of heinous act that justifies our existence. At such a time of tragedy, let us not reach for the low-hanging fruit of blaming the killer's guns. Let us stay focused on the fact that someone hated gay people so much they were ready to kill or injure so many."

Orlando Shooter Did Not Use An AR-15, But Who Cares. A Narrative Is Building

streiff, RedState

In fact, there is no humanly possible way it could be mistaken for an AR-15. This is not a mistake. This is a narrative. It is designed to build a consensus that the AR-15 is uniquely dangerous and contrive to outlaw it. Once that is accomplished the cry will be raised to outlaw similar weapons.

This Is How You Disarm America (But Only The Law-Abiding Part)

Caleb Howe, RedState

Obama has set the precedent for executive action on guns. The Ninth Circuit has ruled that your right isn't really a right at all. The gun manufacturers and the NRA are openly targeted for government retribution. The Supreme Court is going to have a new face. And the propaganda machine has never been more active. Add that up.

Gun Owners, Hillary Will Soon Say ‘If You Like Your Guns You Can Keep Your Guns’

Jorge Amselle, Daily Caller

Is Hillary, the corrupt, secretive, power hungry, conniving political animal that she is, telling her supporters the truth when she says that enacting gun control will be her top priority? Or is this simply pillow talk for the gun haters and when push comes to shove she will just go through the motions and not be willing to expend the political capital necessary for any real change?

Sorry Friends, If You Are #NeverTrump Then You Are #4Hillary

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
I still think Ted Cruz is the best candidate conservatives had in the race, but he is unfortunately not the candidate who won a majority of the delegates – that distinction goes to Donald Trump – and it is to Trump that right-of-center voters will have to look if our country and constitutional liberty are to survive. Don't buy that argument? Then look in the mirror and read this list...

Yes, Hillary Clinton Will Take Your Guns

Here's why Mrs. Clinton is so dangerous. It’s not that she has the policy on firearms ownership wrong or that her assessment of human nature is softheaded. She has the policy exactly right – if you want to impose despotism on America – and she and her supporters on the Far-Left understand that for them to take power permanently you must be disarmed.

Part 2: What Should Conservatives Do if Trump Wins the Republican Nomination?

What we see on the part of the Republican establishment is not an effort to deliver the nomination to Senator Ted Cruz, but an effort to create a chaotic situation in which no outsider has a majority, thereby delivering to the Washington Cartel’s powerbrokers and insiders the ability to choose the nominee at the Republican National Convention. If that happens, then conservatives will have to face the reality of working with Donald Trump or opposing him at the GOP Convention.

Kasich Spits on the Second Amendment

The Heller and McDonald cases which finally codified the Second Amendment as in individual right were passed on a knife edge, and that knife is about to turn around and slash in the other direction if either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton – or John Kasich – are allowed to fill not only this seat on the court but the likely three or four to follow.

Obama Throws Down The Gauntlet: GOP Leaders Pre-Surrender

Republican leaders will talk a good game for the next year, but don’t expect Obama to leave office with his agenda unfinished, because, as we explain here, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have already “pre-surrendered.”

It’s Time To Call BS on Texas GOP Rep. John Culberson

This is going to play out exactly the same way Rep. Culberson’s cynical lies about stopping Obama's executive amnesty played out. Culberson will bluster, he will threaten, he may even hold a hearing or two, but absolutely nothing Obama does on guns is going to change because Culberson has already funded everything Obama plans to do right through September 2016. Please sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republican leaders, tell them "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"
