National Rifle Association

Give Gays Guns


The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is to have multiple good guys with guns. Often the bad guys with the guns won’t contemplate trying to kill people someplace where there is a high chance of being shot back. You don’t hear of mass murders at gun ranges or gun shops do you?

So, how do you prevent gay people being gunned down in night clubs? Well you arm them, of course.

Within hours of the shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Gwendolyn Patton was on the case. She sat down, banged out a press release and posted it on her website. “This is exactly the kind of heinous act that justifies our existence,” it read. Swatting away the pleas for gun control she knew would follow in the wake of a high-profile mass shooting, Patton wrote: “At such a time of tragedy, let us not reach for the low-hanging fruit of blaming the killer’s guns,” she went on. “A human being did this. The human being’s tools are unimportant when compared to the bleakness of that person’s soul.” She lamented that the revelers mowed down at the Pulse were practically sitting ducks: In Florida, even though gun laws are quite loose, you’re not allowed to carry firearms in a place that serves alcohol. What if there were a designated carrier, she wondered? Someone tasked with remaining sober and toting a gun around a bar? “It’s sad that we must consider such things,” she concluded, “but when there are persons out there who mean us harm, we must find ways to protect ourselves within the law.”

It’s a similar argument to the one voiced after all such shootings: shooting in a school? Arm the teacher. Shooting in a movie theater? Arm the theater-goers. What makes Patton’s call to arms a little different is that she is not part of the NRA or the Republican Party. She is a Libertarian at the head of Pink Pistols, which describes itself as “an international GLBT self-defense organization” and whose slogan is “Pick on someone your own caliber.” And so: Shooting at a gay nightclub? Arm gay people.

Trump will allow guns back into schools and campuses

Trump with a gun

There is a reason why gutless cowards intent on mass murder go to schools and campuses for their mayhem…stupid politicians made them gun free zones. The criminals know they will be the only ones with a gun for quite sometime.

All that would change if Donald Trump was elected president.

Donald Trump has slammed Hillary Clinton as “heartless” for backing restrictions on gun ownership that he said would leave Americans in high-crime areas unable to protect themselves.

Trump’s remarks came at the National Rifle Association convention in Louisville, Kentucky on Friday.

The gun rights organisation endorsed the presumptive Republican nominee ahead of his remarks, despite Trump’s previous support for measures like an assault weapons ban that the NRA vigorously opposes.

But the business mogul-turned-politician has taken a far less restrictive stance on guns during the Republican presidential primary.   Read more »

Obama announces that more laws will stop criminals from breaking laws

The world’s greatest gun sales man is going to use executive actions to introduce new gun control laws.

He better get ready for a Supreme Court challenge by the NRA.

From the Oval Office Monday, President Obama, sitting alongside Attorney General Loretta Lynch, announced a new round of executive gun control actions he says are “well within my legal authority.”

The president assured that even the strictest Second Amendment-rights advocate would stand behind his proposals:

It is my strong belief that for us to get our complete arms around the problem, Congress needs to act. What I asked my team to do is to see what more we could do to strengthen our enforcement and prevent guns from falling into the wrong hands.

The good news is, is that these are not only recommendations that are well within my legal authority and the executive branch, but they’re also ones that the overwhelming majority of American people, including gun owners, support and believe in.   Read more »

The world’s best gun salesman cracks another record


Barack Obama is the world’s best gun salesman and he has had another cracker month breaking yet another record.

American Rifleman reports:

Black Friday now holds the record for the highest volume of inquires processed in a single day by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), and continues the phenomenal gun-sales pace of 2015.    Read more »

Goodyear sacks an employee for being a sporting shooter

Goodyear has a bit of a problem on their hands. One of their Australian employees has been sacked because he is a sporting shooter.

That is bad enough, but the case has now come to the attention of The Firearm Blog, one of the most respected and popular firearms blogs in the world, let alone the US.

David Waters, one of the top shooters in Australian, competes regularly in high-power shooting competitions in the USA. In 2008 he became the first non-US citizen to be awarded the Distinguished Rifleman Badge by the CMP.

A mechanical engineer by profession, he has worked for Goodyear in Australia for the past 12 years until earlier this year when he was fired.    Read more »

No suprises here: NRA more popular than Democrats

Truth Revolt reports:

The Democrats’ attempt to demonize America’s most prominent gun rights group doesn’t seem to be working. It apparently is vastly more popular than even the Dems’ two most prominent figures.

According to a new Gallup Poll, 58 percent of Americans surveyed said they have a favorable view of the National Rifle Association, while 35 percent said they have an unfavorable view, says Fox News.

Compare this to recent approval ratings for President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who recently announced that she would support tougher gun laws if elected President.

According to a Gallup Poll between Oct.19-21, just under 50 percent approve of Obama’s job performance, while 45 percent disapprove. Meanwhile, in an NBC/Wall Street Journalsurvey of Americans taken Oct. 15-18, 39 percent of those surveyed had a favorable view of Clinton, compared to 48 percent with an unfavorable view.   Read more »

Obama is the best gun sales man in the world, gun manufacturing up 140% under his watch

President Barack Obama is a boon to the gun industry.

Ever since he became president gun companies have been experiencing massive sales growth which in turn has lead to increased manufacturing.

Gun production has more than doubled over the course of the Obama administration, according to a new report from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The manufacturing boom has come in the face of the president’s push to expand background checks and place new restrictions on guns in the wake of high-profile shootings like the recent mass-killing in Charleston, S.C., and the 2012 massacre at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school.

The numbers paint a picture of gun owners who are concerned about new restrictions on their Second Amendment rights, activists say.

“The ATF report confirms what we already know, that Barack Obama deserves the ‘Gun Salesman of the Decade’ award,” said Erich Pratt, spokesman for the Gun Owners of America. “People have been rushing to buy firearms because they’re afraid that Obama will take away their Second Amendment rights.”

The ATF’s annual firearms commerce report tracks the number of guns manufactured in the United States, which provides an indication of gun sales around the country. Read more »

Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown lobby group gets nailed by NRA in Nevada

I don’t know why people mess with the NRA. They are probably the best political lobbying and direct action group in the world.  You take them on at your peril.

Michael Bloomberg is currently expending millions trying to do just that, taking the NRA on at their own game…and losing. He clearly has much to learn.

His latest defeat is in Nevada where Everytown campaigned heavily against pro-gun law changes. The NRA smashed them.

Say goodbye to handgun registration in and around Las Vegas, Nevada. On Monday, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval signed Senate Bill 175, abolishing Clark County’s “blue card” handgun registration system while ushering in a host of other pro-gun changes to state law.   Read more »

The NRA should just give Obama a life membership

Barack Obama is the world’s greatest gun salesman, it is getting beyond a joke now.

Breitbart reports on the surge of concealed carry permits:

Concealed carry permit applications are surging in states like North Carolina, as they have been surging nationally under Obama, “amid safety fears.”

For example, in North Carolina’s Buncombe County, the number of permits issued in 2014 were up “101 percent” from 2010.  And this county-level jump is in line with a national jump under Obama, whereby the number of concealed carry permit holders rose “136 percent” across the United States between 1999 and 2014.

According to the Citizen-Times, the reasons behind the surge in NC are based on both politics and safety. While Republicans like state Representative Jacqueline Schaffer (Dist. 105) are pushing to lessen the restrictions on law-abiding gun owners in NC, Democrats keep fighting back, pressing to keep as much gun control in place as possible.   Read more »

Chris Christie’s presidential hopes are dead

Chris Christie’s presidential hopes are stuffed, there is little chance he will gain the Republican nomination after moving to introduce tougher gun control laws.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s (R) administration is proposing more gun control in the form of “security requirements” for firearm retailers, wholesalers, manufacturers–and employees of the same–in the state.

The proposals originated with the State Police and are the result of “several thefts and lapses in oversight…that led to at least one death” during the past 10 years.   Read more »
