FBI Report Confirms Crime Fell While Gun Purchases Soared in 2013 As gun sales soared in 2013–with the number of background checks for gun sales breaking records–the FBI reports that violent crime fell sharply below 2012 figures, and property crime rates fell sharply too. On January 6, Breitbart News reported there were 21,093,273 background checks for firearm purchasers conducted in America in 2013.

Is Grapes trying to get himself canned?

Is Grapes trying to get himself canned? It was pretty obvious from his Coach’s Corner segment on Saturday night that Grapes was harbouring plenty of wrath. Six times during his five-minute show on Hockey Night in Canada, Coach’s Corner star Don Cherry griped about the lack of time for his segment, often with a pronounced scowl on his face. He even threw his arms up in frustration at one point. One sports TV insider suggested that it was almost like Grapes wanted to get himself fired. Since Rogers Sportsnet secured the rights to Hockey Night in Canada, Cherry’s segment has… View Article

Conrad Black meant to renounce Canadian citizenship ‘temporarily’ Former media baron Conrad Black says that when he renounced his Canadian citizenship to sit in the British House of Lords he was only doing so “temporarily,” and meant to re-apply until he was sidetracked by his legal troubles south of the border. Black said Monday he was not turning his back on Canada itself when he gave up his citizenship in 2001 to become Lord Black of Crossharbour. Then-prime minister Jean Chretien had enforced an old law that said a Canadian citizen cannot become a British lord while retaining Canadian citizenship…. View Article

Midterms Closed Door On Gun Control At Federal Level

Midterms Closed Door On Gun Control At Federal Level With the midterm elections largely decided, save for a small number of races, federal gun control legislation that seemed improbable with a Democrat-run Senate looks nearly impossible with a Senate run by Republicans. In fact, the door on federal gun control legislation seems to have slammed shut. According to The Hill, the NRA “endorsed 279 congressional candidates” and over 90 percent of them won. Contrast that with the results Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly’s gun control group got for their endorsements. They “spent millions of dollars endorsing 16 congressional candidates” and… View Article

NRA Received ’95 Percent Return Rate’ on Election Contributions

NRA Received ’95 Percent Return Rate’ on Election Contributions While Michael Bloomberg batted about 50/50 on prominent endorsements and Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly’s efforts were decimated, the NRA received a “95 percent return rate” on election contributions. According to CBS News, “The National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund shelled out $12 million on this year’s midterms.” In return, they saw pro-Second Amendment governors like Nathan Deal (R-GA), Paul R. LePage (R-Maine), and Rick Scott (R-FL) stave off challenges from pro-gun control candidates. Their targeted contributions also helped Republicans expand their majority in the House of Representatives and capture the… View Article

Obama: I’m Big, You’re Small, I’m Right, You’re Wrong

Obama: I’m Big, You’re Small, I’m Right, You’re Wrong Obama took to the podium on Wednesday after the midterm elections and made it clearer than ever that he lives in his own universe. Americans sent the message loud and clear that they reject his policies and the Democrat platform as it currently stands, yet Obama drove the message home that even with a Republican Congress in control, he would continue to push his extremely unpopular liberal agenda. It almost seemed as though Obama was just giving another campaign speech in which it was all about him and not how to… View Article
