Venezuela Banned Guns. Now Their Murder Rate Is Skyrocketing.

By Hank Berrien Want an example of how dangerous gun prohibition for citizens can be ? Try Venezuela, where since April 2017 at least 163 pro-democracy protesters have been murdered by the Maduro dictatorship. In 2012, the Venezuelan National Assembly, which was dominated by communists, passed the “Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law.” The bill was clear that it aimed to “disarm all citizens.” All gun sales were banned except to government entities. If a citizen was caught selling a gun or carrying one, they could get 20 years in prison. The year preceding Maduro’s disarmament initiative, Caracas recorded...

Facebook Blocks Prominent Gun Rights Organization

 by Brock Simmons Our *good friends* at Facebook have apparently blocked Oregon Firearms Federation founder and director Kevin Starrett from being able to post a few days ago. “I have no idea why I was blocked and FB does not respond to questions about it.

But if any random individual can complain and silence you, Facebook is a forum we will be moving away from” Starrett tells The Gateway Pundit. OFF made a post on their webpage, and were able to send out an email blast...

Unpublished CDC Study Confirms over 2 Million Annual Defensive Gun Uses

by AWR Hawkins An unpublished Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study confirms Florida State University criminologist Gary Kleck’s findings of more than two million defensive handgun uses (DGUs) per year. Since the early 1990s, Kleck has maintained that there is a minimum of 760,000 DGUs annually. That is his low estimate; Kleck and research partner Marc Gertz have contended the actual number is closer to 2.5 million. Kleck reaffirmed his numbers on February 17, 2015, explaining that while plenty of naysayers have criticized his findings, none have been able to offer empirical evidence to counter them. Now, a CDC study...

Reddit to ban discussions about firearms, gun deals

Say they want to distance themselves from transactions of “illicit” goods  By Ethan Huff If you have a knack for firearms, beer, and/or tobacco products, you’re no longer welcome at Reddit. The popular news and discussion website has reportedly scrapped a whole slew of so-called “subreddits” from its platform, including those centered around guns, which Reddit has categorized as “illicit or strictly controlled” goods.

Judge: Gun retailers’ suit against Massachusetts AG can move forward

By David Sherfinski – The Washington Times Amid an 18-month-long court fight, a federal judge recently ruled that a lawsuit accusing Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey of improperly tightening the state’s strict assault-style weapons ban on her own can move forward. Four firearms retailers and the National Shooting Sports Foundation originally brought the suit in September 2016, arguing that Ms. Healey overstepped her bounds in crafting what they called a vague, unenforceable directive two months earlier that cracked down on the sale of certain “copycat” semiautomatic weapons. Ms. Healey’s office sought to have the case thrown out, arguing that...
