Anti-gun Politicians, Media Exploit Paris Attacks in “Terrorist Gap” Rehash 

The Paris terrorist attacks were not easily pinned on America's supposedly lax gun laws or the NRA, but that didn't stop exploitative assaults on America's law-abiding gun owners and those who support them.

While some media sources did ruefully acknowledge that Paris already has highly restrictive gun control and that the firearms used in the attacks were obtained illegally, attention soon focused on supposed loopholes in American laws that critics claim make the U.S. a virtual arms bizarre for terrorists. One tabloid went so far as to characterize NRA’s Second Amendment advocacy as a “sick jihad.”    Read more

Obama`s war on guns could increase firearm bloodshed

President Barack Obama on Tuesday visited his hometown of Chicago to talk gun control. And in lamenting that gun crime is out of control in a city with some of the nation's toughest gun controls, the president hinted at coming measures to punish lawful gun owners for the actions of criminals.

Obama called on law enforcement agencies throughout the nation to join him in campaigning for “common-sense” gun reform in a speech to the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

“It's time to be honest ” fewer gun safety laws don't mean more freedom, they mean more fallen officers,’ Obama said, according to prepared remarks. “They mean more grieving families, and more Americans terrified that they or their loved ones could be next" Read more

Italian Mayor Has Right Response To Prison Releases, Sanctuary Laws  

Noting public frustration over the Senate Democrats` blocking of legislation to crack down on sanctuary cities and their renewed push for new gun control laws, plus the announced plan to release thousands of prison inmates early, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today that an Italian mayor faced with rising crime in his region may have the right plan to alleviate public concerns.

“Mayor Gianluca Buonanno of Borgosesia in Piedmont in northern Italy has offered 250 Euros apiece to citizens to help them pay for a gun,” noted CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “This is no tongue-in-cheek joke, either. The mayor has made that offer after accusing the Italian government of failing to protect honest citizens with laws that seem soft on bad guys.” Read more  

No body armor for you; and mass shootings where? 

The gun grabbing crowd would have you believe that they want everyone to be safe from ‘gun violence’ (which is a code word or progressive control phrase designed to create a conditioned response). It is for that reason, they say, that they want to limit access to guns. Never mind that laws ‘limiting access’ would only limit access to firearms by law abiding citizens.

Criminals ignore laws, and in fact, actively work to skirt them. That's what makes them criminals. And murder, by the way, is already frowned upon by the elites, except in cases of dropping bombs on Middle Eastern and African people, killing people slowly with vaccinations, or when carried out by government agents.   Read more

Come and take them 

In the wake of last week's tragedy on the campus of Umpqua Community College, President Barack Obama  commanded Americans to “politicize a violent Muslim's attack on a crowd of innocent college students and teachers. Of course, asking Democrats to politicize tragedy is like asking Michael Moore if he wants another dough nut.

These are people who politicize everything. However, they did seem reluctant to politicize the fact that UCC murderer Chris Harper-Mercer appears to have been influenced by radical Islam. And they missed a chance to politicize the ludicrous parental failings of the killer's father, who blamed his son's actions on firearms: “How on Earth could he compile 13 guns? How could that happen?” Read more

Passing the buckby John C. Street 

They could see the deer, bits and pieces of him anyway, as he slipped across the side hill, screened for the most part by heavy patches of frost striped blackberry canes and grape tangles.  It wasn’t in a hurry but had obviously been disturbed by other hunters.  It checked its back trail as it came.  Read More
