What The MSM Doesn’t Get About Trump's Support

What the establishment media doesn’t seem to comprehend is that Donald Trump’s supporters, conservative, populist voters, not just white Evangelical Christians, stick with him because they want results, and Trump, despite his personal foibles is delivering them.

A good guy with a gun has saved many lives in Florida – something the media rarely report

John R. Lott, Fox News

Police know how important their own work is to stopping crime, but they also understand that they almost always arrive at crime scenes after a crime has occurred. Seconds matter when someone fires into a crowd, such as the one that gathered at the back-to-school rally in Titusville on Saturday. Many children were saved Saturday. Let’s hope that permit holders will soon be protecting more children.

Democrat Hypocrisy And Fear Mongering On 3D Printed Guns

If the Anarchist Cookbook is for sale on Amazon or available free on the University of California at Berkeley’s website, but Cody Wilson’s Defense Distributed can’t publish 3D gun files, then the First Amendment is dead, having been reduced to whatever a federal judge arbitrarily decides you can say or publish.

Why Gun Grabbers Are All In To Defeat Kavanaugh Nomination

"Kavanaugh believes in a very vigorous Second Amendment right to bear arms, and he thinks there is little room for constitutionally permissible gun control," says UCLA law professor Adam Winkler, which is one reason why the Left so vehemently opposes him.

Democrats And U.N. Uniting To Disarm Americans

The congressional refusal to take up the UN Small Arms Treaty and other gun confiscation schemes is only as good as the number of conservatives in Congress willing to stand and fight for the God-given right of self-defense, because if Democrats, such as Rep. Eric Salwell of California have their way, firearms they don’t like will be forcibly confiscated.

Why Do Liberals Think We Are Morally Obligated To Die To Make Them Happy?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Today, we side with our friends. And we celebrate the defeat of our enemies. We’re done with bleeding for liberal feelz. One of the beautiful aspects of the Trump revolution is that America is no longer afraid to take our own side, and the side of our allies, in a fight. Pity the poor liberals. The Normals are no longer cooperating, and it has to be frustrating for their putative superiors. How dare normal people refuse to die to make liberals feel better?

Why Science and Experience Command That You Buy an 'Assault Rifle'

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

You should own, at a minimum, a modern semiautomatic rifle like an AR-15 that is simple to operate, easily accessorized for the individual user, reliable, and rugged. Liberals call these “assault rifles,” though they are not. Insisting that liberals be accurate when describing what they seek to ban is “gunsplaining,” a heinous macroaggression that is right up there with assuming someone’s gender on the Big List O’ Liberal Sins. If you don't agree with me, you clearly hate science. Why do liberals hate science so much?

New CSP Study: Trump Is Right, Gun Free Zones Make Schools More Dangerous

Dr. Christopher Hull’s new study for CSP confirms the argument President Trump made after Parkland that a gun-free zone “is like target practice” for school shooters such as the alleged Florida killer, Nikolas Cruz. “They see that and that’s what they want,” said the President. “Gun-free zones are very dangerous. The bad guys love gun-free zones.”

The gun debate we have versus the gun debate we need

David Freddoso, Washington Examiner

There are a number of bipartisan proposals which both gun control and gun rights advocates can sincerely get behind, and which really will make a difference. Between simply fixing the instant-check database and re-examining how professionals are trained to handle dangerous mental illnesses, we know of at least 97 mass-shooting fatalities that could have been prevented since 2007.

They Take the Second Amendment First and the First Amendment Second

Kurt Schlicter, Townhall

Liberals love the idea of shutting up the opposition. Today, it’s through intimidation. Tomorrow, it’ll be through the government. It all starts with guns. Once your Second Amendment rights are gone, do you think the liberals will suddenly decide to be more respectful of your First Amendment rights? Or do you think they will accelerate their campaign to strip you of the civil rights that remain the last obstacle to their total control?

Could #MarchForOurLives be a setback for gun control?

Michael Graham, CBS News

Saturday's rally, with its acid rhetoric and progressive overreach, may have been the Left's first setback of the year. "They have gotten the other side revved up," says Jim Wallace of the Gun Owners Action League, a pro-gun-rights group in Massachusetts. "The NRA's membership is increasing, ours is increasing. We're seeing it first hand: people who would not normally get involved are very concerned about their civil rights."

In Defense of 'Gunsplaining'

David French, National Review

Americans don’t give away their freedoms willingly. And they’re especially unwilling to limit their liberties in response to arguments based in ignorance, sprinkled with condescension and moral superiority. So law-abiding gun-owners respond by “gunsplaining,” and they find that when they gunsplain, they tend to win. Ignorance is a plague, and the gun-rights community is eager to provide the cure.

Trump, DOJ taking steps to make Americans safer after school shootings

Jeff Sessions, Fox News

We have a law-and-order president who is determined to make America safer. President Trump and his administration are moving swiftly and taking action. With these new measures in place, we are better positioned to disarm criminals and protect the law-abiding people of this country. Achieving those two goals will help us achieve President Trump’s goal of a safer America.

The Oligarchs’ Counterrevolution

Media and internet near-monopolies and a too big to fail bank, the largest credit card issuer in the country, have joined in another attack on the Second Amendment and brazenly announced their plan to undermine the Constitution to accomplish their goals.

In defense of the right to keep and bear arms

Andrew P. Napolitano, Washington Times

Even after Heller, governments have found ways to infringe on the right to self-defense. Government does not like competition. Essentially, government is the entity among us that monopolizes force. The more force it monopolizes the more power it has. So it has enacted, in the name of safety, the least safe places on earth — gun-free zones. The nightclub in Orlando, the government offices in San Bernardino, the schools in Columbine, Newtown and Parkland were all killing zones because the government prohibited guns there and the killers knew this.

Counterattack Hard Against Liberal Attacks on Our Gun Rights and Other Civil Liberties

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The difference between government censorship and corporate censorship is no difference at all. Again, the federal government and the states have the power to regulate. Once again, we must ban discrimination on the basis of advocacy for or exercise of constitutional rights, and empower individual plaintiffs to seek penalties and attorneys’ fees for violations. If these companies really believe what they're doing is right, they can hire lawyers in 30 states.

The debate we need on school shootings

Editors, Washington Examiner

We disagree with politicians who reacted to the horrific school shooting in Florida by pleading “now is not the time” for a debate on gun laws. A debate on gun control and all policies that could help prevent such a traumatizing event from happening again is welcome. But it needs to be a real debate, and such a thing has been hard to come by. There are clashing values and competing rights contending here, so any debate will unavoidably include anger.

Protect Kids or Confiscate Guns?

Patrick J. Buchanan, Buchanan.org

Our embassies are defended by Marines with M16s. Security guards with guns defend banks and military bases, presidents and politicians. The best way to protect kids in schools may be to protect schools, and run down and incarcerate the known criminals and crazies who are the primary threats.

'We Have to Do Something'

Ben Shapiro, CNS News

The biggest problem with the gun control debate has been its failure to boil down slogans to proposals. That problem won't be alleviated so long as the media insist on putting mourning teenagers on television with the chyron "DO SOMETHING." Something is nothing unless someone puts some actual proposals on the table.
