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.

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

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

No Set Standard for When Private Gun Sellers Must Get a License

Obama Doubles Down: No Set Standard for When Private Gun Sellers Must Get a License by AWR Hawkins Breitbart News previously reported that Obama’s executive expansion of background checks to cover more private sales has no minimum sales threshold that a private seller has to hit before he is considered “engaged in the business of dealing in firearms.” Therefore, the point at which a private seller must get a Federal Firearms License (FFL) and do a background check on every gun he sells is unclear at best.
