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

Where will Obama imprison 100 million gun owners if Democrats get their way

Where will Obama imprison 100 million gun owners if Democrats get their way and criminalize nearly all handguns and rifles?  by: J. D. Heyes Following a series of unfortunate shootings across the country – shootings that, for the record, have dramatically increased since President Obama has been in office, for some reason – the Left screams for more and more gun control, including “common sense reforms” that nearly always focus on one style of firearm: so-called “assault weapons.”Included in the calls to ban an entire class of weapons, have been proposals to tax and limit ammunition sales; to curb the… View Article

Donald Trump Vows to End ‘Gun-Free Zones in Schools’– During Obama Townhall

by Charlie Spiering As President Obama was at a CNN town hall meeting discussing his passion for gun control, Donald Trump vowed to end gun-free zones. The billionaire presidential candidate was hosting a campaign rally in Burlington, Vermont at the same time as Obama’s televised meeting, juxtaposing the two events. Perhaps it was no mistake then that Trump chose to talk about gun control at the end of his speech. “I will get rid of gun-free zones in schools — you have to — and on military bases on my first day. It gets signed. My first day – there’s no… View Article

700,000+ AZ Republicans Calling Congress to Oppose Obama’s Gun Control

by Michelle Moons GOP elected officials are being called to “use every legislative tool” to oppose President Obama’s newest executive action on gun control by Arizona Republicans—this in the midst of Arizona Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) facing tough primary challenger Dr. Kelli Ward. “Yesterday we sampled tyranny, today we demand representation,” Maricopa County GOP Chairman Tyler Bowyer told Breitbart News regarding Obama’s Tuesday announcement pushing greater restrictions on gun ownership. The typical ho-hum attitude of Congress, to act upset and subsequently do nothing about Obama’s executive power grab is plainly not enough. Grassroots Republicans across the country, including the 700,000+… View Article

The Assault Weapon Myth

By LOIS BECKETT OVER the past two decades, the majority of Americans in a country deeply divided over gun control have coalesced behind a single proposition: The sale of assault weapons should be banned. That idea was one of the pillars of the Obama administration’s plan to curb gun violence, and it remains popular with the public. In a poll last December, 59 percent of likely voters said they favor a ban. But in the 10 years since the previous ban lapsed, even gun control advocates acknowledge a larger truth: The law that barred the sale of assault weapons from… View Article
