Socialists say gun-control reduces violence. They think criminals obey gun laws. In fact, armed civilians save lives, yet Socialists hate gun owners.

Here is why.
 

The Right to Own a Gun Is the Right to Own Yourself

There are many angles to the debate over whether people have the right to keep and bear arms. Gun control advocates like to bicker and haggle over the meaning of the Second Amendment even when our rights exist outside of paper documents. When that doesn’t work they resort to social utility arguments about what’s best for the “good of society.” Or they create propaganda painting gun owners as dangerous anti-social psychopaths.

But all of this is irrelevant and ignores the fundamental question.

Today is Friday the 13th, which some people believe is a day of death, and the gun manufacturer Glock wants people to know that a handgun will keep you alive today.

Friday the 13th became immortalized by a film series of the same name where the character Jason wears a mask and hacks people to death with a machete. (SLIDESHOW: Celebrate The Second Amendment With These Gorgeous Gun-Loving Women)

However, it might be hard to get hacked to death by a machete if you’re slinging lead from your Glock pistol.

On Wednesday May 11th 2016, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit reheard the NRA-supported case Kolbe v. Hogan, which challenges Maryland’s bans on various popular semi-automatic rifles and detachable magazines.

In early February, a three-judge panel of the Fourth Circuit vacated a lower court ruling that upheld the bans, but the court agreed to en banc rehearing before the full fifteen-member court.

Missouri lawmakers passed a sweeping expansion of gun rights Friday, allowing people to carry concealed guns without needing permits while also expanding their right to stand and fight against perceived threats.

The legislation, which goes to Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon, was among the most prominent measures passed by the Republican-led Legislature on the final day of its annual session.

The father of a Castle Rock graduate, gunned down last year at Northern Arizona University, is speaking out about the loss of his son and his campaign to educate others about campus gun laws.

"If there was not a gun on campus, four boys wouldn't have been shot, their lives wouldn't have been changed and one of them is dead," said Doug Brough, father of Colin Brough.

Her decision has led her down a very dark road, and has her associating with some very bad people. As one of the leading faces of the infamous gun control group Moms Demand Action, McBath has become a serial liar, and sadly seems to be more comfortable with her lies as time goes on. If you’re not familiar with this fringe group, you aren’t missing much. Moms Demand Action has repeatedly be hammered for gross dishonesty, committing apparent perjury, deliberately and grossly manipulating data about the number of school shootings, and dramatically inflating their actual numbers along the way to be being ingloriously named the worst astroturfers in the nation.

The top bidder for a time was one "Racist McShootface," although other bids from a "Tamir Rice" -- the name of a Cleveland child killed by police last year -- also appear in the list of offers for the weapon Zimmerman used in his 2012 Sanford, Florida, confrontation with 17-year-old Martin.

In one of its last actions of session, the House gave final passage to SB 656, an omnibus firearms bill that included the controversial stand your ground law and an expansion of the castle doctrine to include specified guests.

The legislation passed an earlier, brief filibuster in the Senate before passing 24-8 along party lines. The legislation started as a bill to expand concealed carry rights.

Opponents of the “stand your ground” provision have said it would bring more violence, rather than acting as a self defense principal.
 

Why Are Some Shooters Switching Back To Double-Action Autos?

I think I’m coming around to Chris’s theory that more people don’t shoot DA/SA guns well because many instructors simply don’t know the system well enough to teach it, which is a bit different than shooting a single-action or striker-fired gun. When you don’t have a lot of instructors who understand a given system or find it too hard to teach, the system simply doesn’t get the advocacy or respect it deserves. Students of defensive shooting then end up having to learn through the slower process of trial and error.

Katie Couric claims ‘Silent Majority’ of gun owners want more gun control

It must be an election year. One way you can tell for sure is that the media has stepped up its push to convince everyone that gun control is actually a great idea which most people support and the NRA is basically an offshoot of the Church of Satan. We have yet another example of this phenomenon on tap as the Today Show’s Katie Couric prepares to unveil her new “documentary” titled “Under the Gun.” She sat down with her colleague Matt Lauer to talk about it on Friday and set the tone by tossing out a set of claims which were startling to say the least. The interview runs a bit over four minutes in length.
 

Libertarian Presidential Candidate Says He Saw ‘Surge of Support’ After Cruz’s Departure

Could dissatisfaction with the choice between Republican presidential Candidate Donald Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton set the stage for a third party to be successful in November? Libertarian presidential candidate Austin Petersen thinks so.

“I decided to run because I was frustrated with Donald Trump,” Petersen told TheBlaze in an interview Friday, arguing that Trump has not displayed an understanding of the constitutional limits of the executive branch’s power.

Ed.: Pertersen is not the Libertarian presidential candidate; he is seeking the nomination from the Libertarian Party. The actual Libertarian presidential candidate will be nominated at the convention May 27-30.

Two of America's leading auctioneers of guns said they refused on ethical grounds to handle the sale of the 9 mm pistol that George Zimmerman used to kill unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin.

The firearm is so toxic that another auctioneer, the man who sold the revolver used to kill John F. Kennedy's assassin, said he would want no part of it had he been approached by Zimmerman.

However, in the days since this statement, the Annenberg Foundation’s FactCheck.org and PolitiFact have bent over backwards to defend Clinton from this legitimate description of her positions. These outlets’ attempts to contort Clinton’s record to suit their agenda is so shameless one hopes the efforts prompt Columbia University to create a Pulitzer Prize for cognitive dissonance.

Here, in order to claim that Trump is wrong, both FactCheck.org and PolitiFact take a handful of statements Clinton and her campaign have made at face-value, while dismissing more candid statements by Clinton and her daughter Chelsea.

In properly trained hands, a firearm can be an instrument of sport, recreation or self-defense.

It shouldn't matter that the trigger finger on those hands has nail polish.

That's the message of Kay and Lena Miculek, who brought their Babes with Bullets organization to Southwest Florida on Friday for a three-day sport shooting camp designed for female shooters of all skill levels. The event is hosted by the Altair Gun Club in eastern Collier County on the grounds of the former Hendry Corrections Facility and concludes with a 3-gun — handgun, shotgun and rifle — speed competition on Sunday.

MT: Ex-felons petition for gun rights with help of Billings lawyer

While state law is clear on this point, federal agencies don't automatically acknowledge a former Montana felon's right to carry a gun.

"Some people with a felony conviction will have no problem purchasing a gun after their sentence is discharged," Baldwin said. "Some are denied the right to buy a gun."

Baldwin is seeking the petition as a legal clarification more than anything else. He said there is no formal document or process from the courts to restore gun rights, so it could lead to the federal government arresting someone with a felony conviction for felon in possession of a firearm.

A 15-year-old boy fires an assault rifle at human-shaped targets while walking through a desert shooting range. Whipping a pistol from a holster, another teen shoots rapidly at man-shaped targets that pop from behind barrels.

These are scenes shown in online videos from specialized summer camps around the country where children as young as nine years old fire assault-style guns and ammunition as they learn practical shooting, a controversial sport that mimics combat situations.

On May 12, Vermont lawmakers rejected initiatives designed to put universal background checks in place for law-abiding citizens in the state.

This was the fourth consecutive year that universal background checks have been rejected in Vermont.

VermontWatchdog.org quoted Gun Owners of Vermont’s Bob DePino, who explained that universal checks were pushed but defeated in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. After the gun control was defeated again this year, DePino said, “They keep coming. They tried and they tried it again.”
 

OK: Governor Fallin Signs Knife Reform

Knife Rights started to lobby to reform these laws three years ago. SB1159 is the culmination of their efforts. From kniferights.org:

April 27, 2016: Knife Rights’ Oklahoma Knife Law Reform bill, SB 1159, has been signed into law by Governor Mary Fallin. SB 1159 removes dagger, bowie knife, dirk knife and sword cane from the items prohibited from carry in Oklahoma, and finishes the job Knife Rights began last year with the repeal of the ban on carrying switchblade (automatic) knives and with the passage of Knife Law Preemption in Oklahoma.

Since Knife Law Preemption is already the law in Oklahoma, the revised law will be effective statewide when it takes effect on November 1, 2016.
