With House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi jumping quickly into the post-Las Vegas blood fest to exploit Sunday’s mass shooting to push a political agenda, it should not take long for the gun prohibition lobby to push for a ban on so-called “bump stocks.”

In 1855, a clothing manufacturer named Oliver Winchester became the largest stockholder of the Volcanic Repeating Arms Company, which was developing the Volcanic Lever Action Rifle. The rifle had only limited success and the company fell into bankruptcy. Oliver Winchester and his partner, John M. Davies, purchased the company's assets and reorganized it as the New Haven Arms Company in April 1857.
 

I’m Not Arguing in Favor of the Second Amendment, the Second Amendment Is the Argument

Whenever a gun tragedy happens in the United States, it seems like there are two sides: One that argues against Second Amendment protections, and one that argues for them. It seems simple enough, but what’s missing is this: The Second Amendment is the argument.

A syndicated political cartoonist and adjunct professor at Eastern Connecticut State University is calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment in response to the tragic mass shooting in Las Vegas this past Sunday. He called it a “cursed amendment.” Writing on Facebook this Monday, Bob Englehart expressed his cynicism that mass shootings would ever end unless the right to bear arms was taken away by the government.
 

Never Let a Tragedy Go to Waste- October 2017 Edition

I wrote about the Las Vegas murderer who shot into a crowd at a country music festival. The facts are not in. I said that anti-rights activists and politicians would call for our disarmament even before the facts were known. I reminded you that being a disarmed citizen is dangerous. That is a fact, not speculation.

My statements anticipating the reaction of our political elites are closer to certainties than predictions. I’m not willing to wait a “respectful interval” while I am condemned by political elites. I will not sit in silence.

You shouldn’t either.

Even After Getting Shot, Rep. Steve Scalise Explains Why He’s Against Gun Control

As the House Majority Whip, Scalise is one of the top leaders in Congress who can count on armed bodyguards for protection. Scalise credits his security team with saving his life in June, by killing the gunman who attacked him at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia. That’s one reason Scalise says he’s against any kind of new legislation that would limit a person’s ability to carry a gun.
 

Joe Scarborough isn’t Running ‘For a While,’ but Here’s His Gun-Control Stump Speech

Joe Scarborough says he isn't running for president or any other office. “Well, not for a while,” he told TVNewser in July. That's not a very definitive statement. And if the former Republican congressman were to get back on the campaign trail, his stump speech about gun control would probably sound a lot like what he said Tuesday on his MSNBC show, “Morning Joe.”

Chicago does not have the strictest gun laws in the country. It’s time for gun lovers to stop spreading that lie. A decade ago that was indeed a title Chicago wore proudly. We were the only major city that still had an ordinance banning residents from keeping a handgun in their home.

In the aftermath of any mass shooting -- and, grotesquely, there are many from which to choose -- our national conversation is almost immediately polluted by all-consuming political demagoguery, often before the facts of the case are established.

In the wake of mass shootings, the conversation often revolves around restricting access to firearms. Here in North Dakota, many lawmakers say the issue is not the guns themselves, rather the person pulling the trigger. “North Dakota is very much in favor of protecting the second amendment” said Rep. Rick Becker, R-Bismarck, “That's going to be unchanged, because we can’t change the fact that mental illness exists, and will continue to exist. We can’t change the fact that hateful ideologies exist.”

Growing up on Chicago’s South Side, prolific train burglar Andrew Shelton understood firsthand the carnage caused by illegal guns. When he was just 16, Shelton, a former Gangster Disciples gang member, shot three people and was sentenced to four years in prison, court records show. He survived three separate shootings himself in the 1990s, including a carjacking in which he was shot nine times. And Shelton’s father was slain in a drive-by shooting in 2001.

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Laura Ingraham criticized former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for tweeting the Las Vegas shooting could have resulted in more deaths if the gunman had a silencer. Ingraham said, “Hillary Clinton spoke before she knew any of the facts. You can’t really put a silencer on an AR-15. It melts the barrel.”

Saints head coach Sean Payton’s stance on guns and gun control is no secret. The coach went off on a rant after his former player Will Smith was shot and killed last year, so it’s no surprise that he had some choice opinions after the massacre in Las Vegas that left dozens dead and hundreds wounded.

Fifteen years ago this week, “Bowling for Columbine” opened in theaters. At the time, there’d never really been an event like Columbine before. Those of us who worked on the film thought we should do it because of the availability of guns, and the phenomenon of guns ending up in the hands of the wrong people, guns in the hands of people who are afraid and take their fear to an exaggerated place. We were afraid it would become the new normal, and wanted to warn people that perhaps our country had taken a turn.

With a shower of gunfire from the 32nd floor of a hotel, the massacre in Las Vegas quickly became incomprehensible in its magnitude - even for someone like Mark Bryant, who works every day to catalog shootings across the country. "This one," he said, sighing - "this one is just not good. This is going to change a lot of things. Like 9/11 changed the way we did a lot of things, this has the potential to change a lot of the way we do things."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
