Virginia Democrat Patrick A. Hope boasts that he is using the Virginia incident to push for universal background checks (UBC), a precursor to gun registration, not because it would have prevented the crime, but because it is the gun control he can pass.

Patrick Hope is a Virginia Democrat Assembly member.
 

The Progressive Crime Wave Grows

Murder rates are skyrocketing in large U.S. cities, but President Obama's progressive pro-crime policies and endless racial provocations have nothing to do with it, the New York Times predictably declared in a recent article.

Nowadays Americans are being killed and maimed explicitly because of their race. Execution-style cop killings are becoming distressingly common. Killings and vicious assaults based on the skin color of the civilian victim are also becoming common.

In a victory for Second Amendment supporters, the Alabama Supreme Court has struck down a state law prohibiting the open carry of firearms on private property owned by another.

The case wound its way through the system after Jason Dean Tulley, 38, appealed a conviction for violating the law when he carried a weapon in his hip at the First Educators Credit Union on March 31, 2011, according to AL.com.

Webster defines militia as "an army composed of citizens rather than professional soldiers, called up in time of emergency." It also defines regulate as "to control or direct according to a rule, principle, etc."

In his recent rebuttal to my Sept. 1 letter, Mr. Coker states that a "well regulated militia,” as stated in the Second Amendment "is actually a bunch of individual people that make up the militia" He fails to mention if these "bunch of individual people" are well regulated in any sense as prescribed by the 2nd amendment.
 

Time to Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment — just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.

Yet — the Supreme Court notwithstanding — Republicans have spent over 40 years regulating abortion providers and inserting themselves into the lives of women seeking a safe and legal abortion

You Can Print Your Own Guns at Home. Next It Will be Nuclear Weapons. Really.

Once again, with mass shootings in a church in Charleston, S.C., and a movie theater in Lafayette, La., Americans are discussing gun control — or discussing why we are not discussing it. With so many mass shootings and so little action, President Obama recently called gun-law reform the policy area in which he has “been the most frustrated and the most stymied.”

A Bonita Springs Fire District commissioner said he wants firefighters to pack heat.

Fred Forbes, the district’s treasurer and secretary, said the department should look into the feasibility of training and outfitting firefighters with body armor and guns to better protect them from being shot.

“I think it’s something we need to evaluate,” Forbes told the Daily News. “Anything to minimize the risk.”
 

Leyonhjelm Goes to Bat for Firearms Against Affliction of ‘Weapons Fear’

WANT to stop the spread of guns? Well sorry, but according to Senator David Leyonhjelm you might have a mental illness.

The firearm-toting Liberal Democrat senator calls it “hoplophobia”, a term invented about 50 years ago in the US to describe campaigners for gun control.

It literally means a fear of weapons and while it doesn’t rate a mention in the genuine clinical texts it is often loaded into the American gun debate.

Members of Congress return Tuesday from their five-week summer recess. Budget negotiations that could end in a government shutdown await them, as do votes on the Iran nuclear agreement and a speech by Pope Francis — all while the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination plays loudly in the background. And with four senators running for president, including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, additional grandstanding is guaranteed.
 

Please Stop Naming Your Children After Guns

The debate over gun control in America has popped up a lot in the past few years, but I never thought it would eventually have this impact. Parents are naming their children after guns. And they’re doing it so frequently that the name Gunner (with the help of Gunnar) even made the Top 200 list for boys.

Nameberry, a baby names site, says names related to guns and their manufacturers are among the most dominant “violent names on the rise.” The site also notes that the name Cannon made the boys’ Top 1000 list.

“Gov. Cuomo spoke Monday about First Deputy Counsel to Empire State Development Carey Gabay, 43, who was shot in in Crown Heights about 3:40 a.m.. ” nydailynews.com reports. “‘We passed the toughest gun control law in the the nation, called the SAFE Act and I am proud of it. Anyone who doesn’t believe we need to do something about gun control is delusional. We can protect the Second Amendment and legitimate gun owners, but we also need to protect people. How many young innocent people need to die before this nation comes to its senses?
 

Being Fat Is More Likely To Kill You Than A Gun

I saw an article in the Washington Post claiming that 1 in 13 murders by gun are committed by cops. The article was posted by a friend on Facebook. The next post was from a “fluffy” friend claiming fat shaming is unacceptable and skinny people should be ostracized. This, of course, prompted three hours of online research. Brace yourselves. If you are a gun grabber or obese, you will not be happy with what I am about to say. First, here’s a table I downloaded from the FBI’s website . . .

It is one of those trite clichés about police work. There is no such thing as a routine call.

Don’t believe it? Just ask Marc Hanly. The veteran Delaware County police officer responded to a situation police — here and in towns across the nation — see every day.

Hanly, with 13 years experience, was part of a contingent of officers who responded for reports of a suicidal man at an apartment complex in Norwood early on a Sunday morning.

Black lives matter. White lives matter. In reality, all lives matter.

In the last few years, with the proliferation of smaller cameras and cameras most everywhere we go, we have become keenly aware that certain types of deaths may have been avoidable. At the very least, the technology exists — in addition to cameras — to help determine if a death rises to the level of criminal wrongdoing, or was simply an act of self-defense.
 

Your Right To Feel Safe Doesn’t Trump My Real Rights

There are many claims from anti-self-defense forces in the country that make me lose my mind, but one really takes the cake. It’s when they try to argue that their nebulous, subjective, “right to feel safe” must somehow be taken into account when the constitutionally explicit right of Americans to keep and bear arms is being contemplated.

It usually comes in the form of a question like, “What about my right to feel safe?” And it is becoming more prevalent all the time.

A policy that strips our veterans of their Second Amendment rights would have been inconceivable even just a few years ago. But now, we have proof of just that. When the news first broke, many of us thought there was surely some kind of mistake. How could this be legal?

The frightening part is that it wasn’t a mistake: President Barack Obama has deliberately labeled over 177,000 veterans as “prohibited persons” under federal firearms law because their financial affairs are managed by a representative payee.

Kim Davis, the Democrat Kentucky county clerk who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses because of religious objections, was ordered to jail for contempt of court last Thursday. She suggested a compromise of removing her name from the licenses, but Federal District Court Judge David Bunning wouldn’t even grant that reasonable compromise.
 

Is The National War on Police Costing Lives?

I bet you think I'm going to argue that the national war on police (well, at least as far as the narrative goes) is costing police lives. It's cost some (as witnessed by recent horrific executions of cops in Texas and New York, where officers seemed to be targeted for no reason other than their badges). And clearly any death is too many and a direct attack against the rule of law.
