South Carolina Republican shows up the gun grabbers in the press

Neil Stevens, RedState

South Carolina state Rep. Mike Pitts has proposed a registry for journalists, requiring registration fees, background checks, and affidavits. You know, just the kinds of things they want for our Second Amendment rights, his bill would apply to the First. So, just as he would have predicted, they’re declaring it an unconstitutional infringement of the Bill of Rights.

Trump’s New York Values: A Long History Of Supporting Far-Left Politicians, Policies And Causes

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
When I look at who Donald Trump has walked with and where he’s walked what I see is not a maturing understanding of the value and validity of conservative thought and ideas about how to govern – what I see is a long record of paying to play with liberal politicians, of adopting liberal positions, and now opportunistically trying to mislead voters into believing he is a populist “conservative.”

Hoekstra: America’s Ruling Elite Facilitate Stealth Jihad

In an interview with our friend Ginni Thomas former House Intel Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra looks at the embedded Islamafication in Europe and is worried what this could mean for our safety here in America.

Ted Cruz is correct: Eric Holder talked about brainwashing people about guns

Moe Lane, RedState

Eric Holder would never have dared say this in 2015, of course. And in 1996 he’d have looked at you confusedly if you had told him that just anybody would in the future be able to just yank his comments from CSPAN and be able to show it to everybody else.

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.”

Rev. Graham on Obama’s Gun Action: ‘Your Proposal Will Do Nothing to Stop the Violence’

Michael W. Chapman, CNS News

“Your proposal will do nothing to stop the violence that is being glorified by Hollywood,” said Rev. Graham in a Jan. 6 post on Facebook. “Every night the networks, movie channels, and theaters are filled with programming that glamorizes gun violence—guns are used to shoot, to kill, and to splatter human blood all over screens across America.”

Obama’s Gun Grab Meant to Distract from ISIS Threat

Michael Needham, The Resurgent

Barack Obama’s effort to turn our attention, again, to gun control, is a distraction from our real problems, and most Americans will recognize it as such. But there’s a lesson for conservatives to take from his approach: when the left tries to redirect the conversation, we need to push back with equal and opposite force.

Obama Cites Jesus in Push for Gun Control

In his announcement of several executive actions aimed at reducing gun violence, President Obama quoted Jesus. The passage is from the Gospel of John: "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

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?"

Senator Jeff Sessions: Obama Seeks To Disarm Americans While Freeing Most Dangerous Criminals

The proven method for saving the lives of innocent Americans is not disarming them.  The proven method for saving the lives of innocent Americans is to arrest, prosecute, convict and jail criminal offenders, especially armed career criminals illegally using guns.

Barack Obama’s Ephemeral Legacy as He Begins Grabbing Guns

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

With Obamacare as the chief exception, most of the President’s legacy is temporary. Even his revisions to Obamacare are subject to deletion with the stroke of a pen by the next President. His Iranian deal could go away. His environmental deal could go away. His education plans, immigration plans, national security plans, energy plans, and most of the rest of his administration can all disappear with the stroke of a pen. Congress is not needed just as the President now has bypassed Congress.

GOA: Yes, Obama IS Coming After Your Guns

Obama believes that because terrorists and some who are mentally deranged want to kill us, we should take a closer look at our gun laws. On that point, we agree:  We do need to reexamine our gun laws.  But what will make us safer is to repeal unconstitutional gun laws.   Click the link to sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republicans, tell Ryan and McConnell "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"
