A Christian’s (Current) View of Concealed Carry

Recent pursuits in expanding my biblical education have, to say the least, stirred the pot in my brain-housing group. I was raised in the church and, now that I’ve figured out how to get my wild streak contained in the “Break in Case of War” cabinet, have a pretty decent foundation on the subject. One […]

Cupp In the week before gun violence in Chicago left 14 people dead and another 68 wounded over the holiday weekend, it’s worth asking what the gun advocate groups were busy doing.

What the Supreme Court still doesn’t understand about guns

Found here: foxnews.com by Dr. John R. Lott, Jr. In what’s being hailed by many as a victory for gun-control advocates, the recent Supreme Court decision on “straw” purchases of guns has completely muddled the whole issue of background checks and “straw” purchases for potential gun owners.

Making up facts about guns

Found here: foxnews.com by Dr. John R. Lott, Jr. President Obama just can’t seem to help himself. Over and over again, he makes exaggerated or false claims about guns and crime.

Six Falsehoods Pushed By Bloomberg’s Gun Control Apparatchiks

Found here: dailycaller.com by John Lott On “Meet the Press” earlier this month, Michael Bloomberg claimed that what he is doing “is nothing about gun control.” But host David Gregory, acting as a cheerleader, not a probing questioner, let that statement go unchallenged.

Lott, Jr. The NRA’s strong statement reprimanding a few people for carrying long guns into restaurants was bound to get media attention.  Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action and much of the media quickly jumped in and described various restaurants as “asking customers to leave their guns at home.” But their assertions […]

Found here: businessweek.com by Paul M. Barrett This massacre is as troubling as they come. The May 23 shooting rampage in Santa Barbara County, Calif.—in which a mentally disturbed 22-year-old man killed six people and wounded 13 before apparently committing suicide—defies sensible-sounding calls for limiting access to weapons and heightening attention to the dangerously deranged.

New York Daily News Demonstrates the Art of Using Tragedy to Push Gun Control

Found here: breitbart.com by Awr Hawkins On May 26 the New York Daily News launched a series about the Santa Barbara tragedy titled “America in Denial.” It is a perfect demonstration of how the left plans to deny or downplay many facts in the horrid Santa Barbara attacks while perverting others so they can push gun control.

EMILY MILLER: Hillary Clinton can’t shoot straight on gun control

Found here: foxnews.com by Emily Miller Hillary Clinton’s views on gun control change as frequently as her hairstyles.

Guns and Supreme Court: Is Second Amendment a privilege, not a right?

Found here: foxnews.com by Trevor Burrus The Supreme Court unwisely declined to review Drake v. Jerejian, last week, a case that challenged New Jersey’s discretionary system of concealed-carry permitting.
