The ‘Hunt’ Only Works If Deplorables Are Disarmed

Given the constant pressure from the elite to disarm everyone except themselves, deplorables should be very skeptical that The Hunt is social satire and not a snapshot of the dystopian gun-free future that awaits us in a country run by President Kamala Harris or one of the other Far Left candidates running in the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primary.

The Weirdness Of Lefty Tough Guys

One of the truly weird features of the modern Left, especially its major political candidates and media figures, is the propensity to utter physical threats against President Trump, his supporters and others on the Right. The strangest recent example of this testosterone-fueled Leftism was an altercation between CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and a person who approached him and referred to him as “Fredo” Cuomo.

‘Expanded Background Checks’ A Fake Solution To Mass Shootings

Expanding background checks would not have prevented a single mass public shooter in recent history from obtaining firearms. Would-be mass public shooters rarely have disqualifying criminal or mental health histories—meaning, they often can and do pass background checks when legally purchasing their firearms.

Chris Sununu Isn’t Panicking on Gun Control

John Fund, National Review

Existing laws can be improved and, more important, enforced more vigorously. Laws mandating prison time for anyone using a gun while committing a crime do take dangerous people off of the street. More mental-health programs that directly tackle the problems of disturbed individuals are expensive but certainly needed. Congress passed a revamp of existing background checks last year, and it was signed into law by President Trump. But lawmakers can do more. But we shouldn’t allow our leaders to rush for “solutions” that have been shown not to work in their current form. That’s why Governor Sununu’s political courage in not going for the quick fix is so commendable.

Can This Be True? Trump Ties With ‘Unnamed Socialist’

In its matchups of Trump versus Democratic candidates, a recent poll asked people to choose between the president and an unnamed “Democratic candidate who you regard as a socialist.” The result: A tie. Trump, 46%; Socialist, 46%. Among likely voters, the split was Trump 49%, unnamed socialist 43%.

Far-Left Billionaire Whacko Tom Steyer Enters Democrat Primary

The Democratic Party wisemen in Washington can’t be happy with Tom Steyer’s announcement because it will be that much harder for them to move to the center for the November election with Steyer pushing the other Democrats even further to the Left on impeachment, global warming and abortion, while ramping-up the anti-free market rhetoric.

Eric Swalwell Nukes His Campaign For President

Rep. Eric Swalwell, the Far-Left California Democrat Congressman who famously reminded gun owners that the government has nuclear weapons should they choose to resist his gun confiscation schemes, is abandoning his presidential campaign. But that doesn’t mean Democrats will abandon their plans to try to confiscate your guns should they ever obtain the power to do so.

Happy Firearms Appreciation Day

We here at CHQ like to think of July 4th as “Firearms Appreciation Day’” because without firearms, and the American prowess with them, there would be no independence to celebrate. The war that turned the Declaration of Independence into a reality was a remarkable triumph that would have been inconceivable had not every man been armed with his own gun.

Virginians Gear Up To Defend Second Amendment Rights

Our friends at Ammoland.com and the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) have alerted us to the VCDL Special Session Lobby Day on Tuesday, July 9, starting at 9 a.m. Go to https://www.vcdl.org/ to learn how you can be a part of Lobby Day and be sure to contact your Virginia Delegate or Senator to help fight this latest Democrat gun grab.

Guns don't kill people; negligent bureaucrats kill people

Editors, Washington Examiner

If not for sloppy record-keeping and boneheaded mistakes by individual officials, the shooters in incidents in Charleston, S.C., at Virginia Tech, and in Sunderland Springs, Texas, would not have been permitted to purchase guns. Agents at every ATF office in the country are now scrambling to recover thousands of guns that an agency contractor stole over a three-year period from their National Firearms and Ammunition Destruction Branch in Martinsburg, W.Va. How many criminals were able to arm themselves through the black market with Uncle Sam's help? This incident provides a grim reminder that if lawmakers want to do something about guns ending up in the wrong hands, they should start by minding the government's own store.

Gun Grabbers Never Let A Tragedy Go To Waste

Virginia's Democrat Governor Ralph Northam is calling a special session of the legislature to consider a package of new gun control bills. The aftermath of any tragedy is when respect for constitutional liberty is at its weakest and political considerations are at their strongest. Go to https://www.vcdl.org/ to learn how you can contact your Virginia Delegate or Senator to help fight this latest Democrat gun grab.

Trump’s Intersectional Weekend

While we don’t buy the idea that all of society is controlled by oppressive intersectional institutions, the Trump team has, from the beginning of his unlikely rise to the Oval Office, recognized that the key elements of a winning political coalition on the Right do intersect, and their nexus is constitutional liberty, especially as protected by the First and Second Amendments.

The Two Americas Of The #2A

The Democrat Party’s radical attempts to infringe upon the liberties guaranteed by the Second Amendment is rapidly creating two systems of gun ownership; one in states where the letter and spirit of the Second Amendment is honored and one where state governments work to undermine it, if not repeal it.

Eight House Republicans Join Democrat Gun Grab

HR 8 isn’t a crime prevention bill, it is part of the Democrats’ long-term plan to disarm the American citizenry to make us more pliable victims for the socialist utopia they plan to impose upon us. The next stop for HR 8 is the US Senate, we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators TODAY. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) urge them to vote NO on HR 8.

Democrats Rush To Criminalize Gun Ownership

Our friends at Gun Owners of America recently sent out an alert about HR 8, the House Democrats’ first gun bill of the 116th Congress, saying, “Nancy Pelosi and her anti-gun team are either profoundly stupid or genuinely evil,” and after reading the anti-Second Amendment legislation Democrats are rushing through Congress, we’re going with genuinely evil.

Democrats Being Themselves

Conservatives wondering what the future holds for the upcoming 116th Congress should wonder no more and simply take Democrats at their word as to their plans. This means a very full agenda of harassing President Trump, pursuing conspiracy theories, raising taxes and restricting your freedom.

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.
