What Is Gun Violence?

The term “gun violence” seems to have been coined by either the anti-gun media or some other anti-gun group in an effort to vilify the tool used to perpetrate violence on another.

Somewhere someone said, “If we call it ‘gun violence’ that will make it sound like guns are bad. We should do that.”

You and I know guns are neither good nor bad. Guns cannot do anything on their own. A gun cannot be violent any more than can a hammer, or a bowling pin or a rose bush. A gun can be used during violent acts. But here is something interesting: A violent act is not always a bad thing. Righteous violence in defense of the innocent is a good thing and should be applauded. Yet still the media and anti-gun politicians continue to beat the drum of “gun violence” in America as if to say, ”If we take away all the guns, there will be no more violence.”   Read more

Bloomberg Proxy Releases Anti-Gun Manifesto; Proposes to Ban Cartoon Characters and Colors!

The name of U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly (D-Ill.) headlines the Kelly Report, a new manifesto identifying a long list of gun control initiatives that anti-gun activists intend to pursue in the near future. However, the document appears to be the handiwork of Michael Bloomberg, whose misleadingly-named Independence USA political action committee contributed $2.1 million to Kelly’s congressional campaign last year. With Bloomberg’s help, Kelly was elected to fill the Chicago-area seat previously held by fellow gun control supporter Jesse Jackson, Jr., who is currently doing time in federal prison. Read more

Facebook Removes Hate Page Thanks to Sportsmen’s Efforts

UPDATE: Facebook has now reversed its position regarding removal of this page after not allowing any new posts for approximately six hours. The page is again active as well as several similar pages. Sportsmen and women should remain vigilant in their support of Kendall Jones and all other hunters who are the victims of cyber-bullying. Stay tuned for more developments as they occur.

A page titled “Kendall Jones Hate Page” has been removed by Facebook after a deluge of complaints from sportsmen reporting it as harassment.

The page in question was created when numerous stories of 19-year-old hunter, Kendall Jones, surfaced after she posted photos of her recent African safari to her fan page. Photos of Jones with African animals she had legally harvested sparked outcry from animal rights activists who soon took to social media to harass and threaten the life of the teenager.    Read more

Sunday hunting lawsuit dismissed by federal judge

A federal judge on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit by a hunters' group that had challenged Pennsylvania's long-standing ban on Sunday hunting, saying she saw no proof the hunters' constitutionally protected rights were being harmed.

U.S. District Judge Yvette Kane made the ruling in a suit brought by the Lancaster County-based Hunters United for Sunday Hunting against the Pennsylvania Game Commission, the agency that enforces the state's game code.

Kane said she could find no proof that courts have extended Second Amendment protections to include recreational hunting.

She also found that the hunters could not prove that the law unfairly discriminated between classes of hunters or that the ban on Sunday hunting violates their religious freedoms.    Read more

U.N. ON ”COLLISION COURSE” WITH SECOND AMENDMENT, SAYS SAF

The United Nations is “on a collision course” with the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment and the natural right of all people to defend themselves,” the Second Amendment Foundation said today in a statement to the U.N.’s Programme of Action (POA) meeting in New York.  

SAF Operations Director Julianne Versnel told the committee that “the POA and other UN efforts repeatedly and vociferously discuss gender issues.”   Read more

Basic training by John C. Street
