Cuomo Visionary Award for her leadership on gun control. Last month, we outlined the Bill Clinton administration’s plans for gun control, including a plan to use lawsuits against gun manufacturers to force a settlement that would have imposed gun registration, bans on magazines holding more than 10 cartridges and many other forms of gun control, all without going through Congress. Those were not the only gun control… View Article

The Demographics of Today’s NRA – Bad News for Haters

by Justin Stakes United States -(AmmoLand.com)- Gun owners are leaving the Democrat party. That decline in people who identify as Democrat is due to their attacks on gun ownership and the 2nd Amendment. They may never go back and will not ever vote against gun rights. The anti-gun left will tell you the NRA is made up white guys over 60. 15+ years ago they were right. Today and over the past 15-20 years, the make-up of the NRA has changed. This has ramifications for the upcoming election and the nation as a whole. So what does the NRA membership… View Article

Law enforcement looking into gun confiscation law

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player By Madison Wade, mwade@krcrtv.com REDDING, Calif. – The new California ‘friends and family’ gun confiscation law that went into effect at the beginning of this year has local law enforcement looking into the parameters. The law, AB 1014, allows law enforcement to confiscate guns belonging to people who have been reported as unstable or dangerous by family or friends. Officers can’t take anyone’s legally-owned guns with just one report because a judge needs to sign a temporary gun restraining order. Once the order has been signed, then the guns can be taken away, but only...

Washington Post: Obama’s Gun Controls Not Enough, Confiscation Needed

by AWR Hawkins On January 13 The Washington Post observed that President Obama’s executive gun controls do not portend a substantial reduction in gun crime because they lack the one key element–gun confiscation. According to WAPO, confiscation “is likely the only policy that would dramatically reduce gun violence in the United States.” They cite the possibility of disillusionment with the executive actions Obama put forward on January 5, based on the fact that Obama admitted the actions “might have only a modest impact” at best. WAPO quoted Obama speaking at the January 7 gun control town hall, saying, “We’re not going… View Article

Armed Citizens Remind Bad Guys That ‘Bullets Go Both Ways’

by AWR Hawkins During the January 10 airing of Meet the Press, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump said armed citizens remind bad guys that “bullets go both ways.” Trump’s statement came after host Chuck Todd asked Trump about moving from a favorable view of “some gun control” in the 1990s to one that is strongly anti-gun control now. Trump admitted he used to hold different views in the 1990s, and said, “I’ve changed.” He then pointed to Ronald Reagan, who was “somewhat of liberal Democrat” before he saw the error of that position and moved toward conservatism. Trump talked about… View Article

The American Public’s Positive Perception of the NRA Soars in the Face of Obama’s Gun Control Agenda

The American public’s perception of guns and the NRA is moving in the exact opposite direction of Barack Obama’s message and agenda. Michael Krieger Liberty Blitzkrieg When pollsters asked people three decades ago how they felt about the National Rifle Association, 27% said they strongly supported the gun lobby. By last month, that share had grown 38%, an 11-point increase. Meanwhile, the share that didn’t side with the NRA declined. By an 8-point, registered voters in the Journal/NBC survey last month said they were more concerned that the government would go too far in restricting gun rights than that it… View Article

Poll: Americans Oppose Obama’s Executive Order on Guns

A majority of Americans oppose President Barack Obama’s use of executive powers to enact new gun control initiatives — and they don’t believe the controversial move will reduce the number of mass killings that have rocked the nation in recent months, a new Rasmussen Reports poll has found. According to the poll of 1,000 likely U.S. voters, 58 percent say the government should only do what the president and Congress agree on in gun control matters. Only 34 percent of those surveyed believe the commander-in-chief should take action alone if Congress does not approve the initiatives he has proposed. Rasmussen… View Article

Bad News for the Left: Obama Admits Second Amendment Guarantees Gun Rights

by AWR Hawkins During his January 5 speech expanding background checks to cover more private sellers, President Obama made a startling admission: he believes the Second Amendment does indeed guarantee a right for individuals to keep and bear arms. He even backed up this assertion by referencing his tenure of teaching in the university. Obama said, “I taught constitutional law, I know a little bit about this — I get it.” This may come as a shock to leftists at the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and other outlets that have been working feverishly to push the belief that… View Article
