What really irritates me is these celebrities promoting the protests and violence. They have made threats against innocent people for how they voted. They have even called on some to target the president-elect. This is way, way overboard. Do these whiny anti-gun liberals realize that by inciting violence, they actually are proving the need for the legally armed law abiding citizen?

There will be a new president in the White House. President Trump said he will defend our right to keep and bear arms. He can help honest gun owners from the Oval Office without the help of the legislature. He can help gun owners as soon as he takes office.

Barack Obama made dozens of anti-gun executive orders. Executive orders can be rescinded by the next president. On the first day in office, President Trump can stop the abuse.

With pro-gun President-elect Donald Trump heading to the White House, substantial deregulation regarding firearm suppressors could be a reality. The use of suppressors is legal in 42 states and certainly provide protections to the environment and the human ear. But the path to acquiring a suppressor is circuitous because the items are regulated under the auspices of the National Firearm Act (1934).

The Walking Dead has been a huge hit for cable network AMC. The comic book adaptation tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world where zombies have overrun the world. Governments have fallen, leaving pockets of survivors to cope with the new world. It speaks a lot to the human experience. The zombie genre itself has been no stranger to social commentary, more prominently speaking to the times through George A. Romero’s films about the undead such as Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead.

In this week’s obvious news, laws that allow people to kill other people with guns have led to more people killing other people with guns. According to two new research papers, stricter firearm laws are associated with fewer firearm homicides, and the implementation of Florida’s stand-your-ground law was associated with increased firearm homicides.
