We’re All Terrorists Now: How Gun Control Treats Law-Abiding Citizens

by AWR Hawkins Responding to the terror attack at Pulse Orlando by pushing more gun control is a not-so-subtle way of treating law-abiding Americans like terrorists. After all, pushing gun control for well over a hundred million gun owners because of the terrorist actions of one gun owner is nothing short of punishing all for the actions of one.

Can the U.N. Grab Americans’ Guns? Ted Bromund / @Bromund

by Ted Bromund / @Bromund For much of the past two weeks, I’ve been attending the U.N.’s Arms Trade Treaty conference in New York and blogging on the craziness of Turtle Bay. A number of comments on my blogs—and many external commentators—have raised the question of whether the ATT is, pure and simple, a “gun grab” treaty. Let’s start with three basic points: No external power, and certainly not the U.N., can disarm U.S. citizens or deprive us of our Second Amendment rights by force. If there is a Second Amendment problem, it comes from the actions of U.S....

U.N. Human Rights Chief Says U.S. Needs ‘Robust Gun Regulation’

By Patrick Goodenough The United Nations’ human rights chief called on the United States Tuesday to enforce more effective gun control measures in the aftermath of the Orlando terrorist attack, dismissing as “irresponsible pro-gun propaganda” the notion that firearms make societies safer. U.N. human rights commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein urged the U.S. government to live up to its obligations to protect citizens from the “horrifyingly commonplace but preventable violent attacks that are the direct result of insufficient gun control.” “Examples from many countries clearly show that a legal framework to control the acquisition and use of firearms has...

Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson Calls For Ban On AR-15s

by AWR Hawkins Fox News’ anchor Gretchen Carlson called for a ban on AR-15s. She suggested June 14 that the AR-15 is not necessary “to hunt or kill deer” and only serves to enable terrorists to carry out their attacks with greater efficiency. She then quoted a December 2015 poll showing support for an “assault weapons” ban and said she is aligned with majority in that poll. Carlson said, Yes, the Orlando massacre was terror, but there’s no doubt that Omar Mateen was able to kill so many people because he was firing an AR-15–a military style assault weapon;...
