Jason Kander gun video turns race on its head

Remember that video? We featured Democrat candidate Jason Kander (above) and his gun video some weeks ago and it seems his video is working.

In the fight for control of the US Senate, the gun-rights-supporting state of Missouri was widely expected to re-elect a seasoned Republican. Then the Democrat candidate, Jason Kander, demonstrated in a campaign commercial that he could assemble an assault rifle in 30 seconds while wearing a blindfold.

Now the race, pitting him against the incumbent Republican, Roy Blunt, is too close to call and with it the broader fight for control of the Senate.

With two weeks to go until the elections, Mr Kander?s dexterity with a rifle could yet tilt the balance of power in Washington. ?? Read more »

Attacker opens fire outside American nightclub and is shot by victim with concealed carry permit

Last week an armed gunman opened fire outside an American nightclub. You haven’t read about it in the news because it was not a massacre and because it runs counter to the anti-gun-lobby narrative. Not only was it not a massacre, there was no loss of life at all. Unlike the situation in the Orlando gay nightclub, this nightclub was not a gun-free zone. Because of this, one of the victims was armed. He fired back and hit the attacker. Imagine if the men inside the Orlando nightclub had been allowed to arm themselves. Fifty people would not have died if that had been the case. In fact, the cowardly terrorist may not have even targeted that nightclub if he had known that his victims could shoot back.

On June 12, a Muslim terrorist attacked a gay night club called Pulse in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 and wounding 53 in a three-hour ordeal that was the nation?s most drawn-out mass killing, and the deadliest domestic terror attack since 9/11.

This past Sunday, exactly two weeks to the day after the Pulse attack, there was a mass shooting outside a night club in South Carolina. I?m sure you haven?t heard about it, and for two good reasons. The first reason is that the attempted murderer was unsuccessful in killing any of his victims.?The second reason is because the attempted murderer was stopped by a concealed carrier at the club drawing his weapon and putting a bullet into the bad guy.

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 »

Trump unequivocal on Second Amendment

Donald Trump outlined recently his views on gun control after the Media party attacked his sons and their hunting photos; now he has released his Second Amendment policy.

One common criticism of?billionaire businessman and presidential candidate Donald Trump is that he far too often speaks in vague generalities and rarely offers specifics about where he stands on the issues.

That is no longer the case, at least regarding his stance on gun rights and the Second Amendment, as Trump just released his official policy position on his campaign website.

?The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period,? the position paper began.

Trump went on to explain that the right to keep and bear arms is a right that pre-exists both the government and the Constitution, noting that government didn?t create the right, nor can it?take it away.

He also rightly denoted the Second Amendment as ?America?s first freedom,? pointing out that it helps protect all of the other rights we hold dear. ?? Read more »

NY Times uses their First Amendment rights to demand citizens have their Second Amendment rights removed

In a bizarre front page editorial the NY Times has demanded that politicians remove the Second Amendment rights of citizens.

They have claimed that the right to keep and bear arms is “a moral outrage and national disgrace”.

All decent people feel sorrow and righteous fury about the latest slaughter of innocents, in California. Law enforcement and intelligence agencies are searching for motivations, including the vital question of how the murderers might have been connected to international terrorism. That is right and proper.

But motives do not matter to the dead in California, nor did they in Colorado, Oregon, South Carolina, Virginia, Connecticut and far too many other places. The attention and anger of Americans should also be directed at the elected leaders whose job is to keep us safe but who place a higher premium on the money and political power of an industry dedicated to profiting from the unfettered spread of ever more powerful firearms.

Is Piers Morgan waking up from his coma?

It has been no secret that Piers Morgan is a big opponent of guns and the Second Amendment, but for a fleeting second it almost seems as though the irritable whinger ‘gets it’. Almost.

I?ve had some of the pro-gun lobbyists on here, saying to me, ?Well, the reason we need to be armed is because of tyranny from our own government,? and I?ve always laughed at them,? Morgan said last night. ?But, actually, this is vaguely tyrannical behavior by the American government. Read more »

S.C.O.T.U.S. upholds 2nd Amendment and extends to States

In its second major ruling on gun rights in three years, the Supreme Court Monday extended the federally protected right to keep and bear arms to all 50 states. The decision will be hailed by gun rights advocates and comes over the opposition of gun control groups, the city of Chicago and four justices.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the five justice majority saying “the right to keep and bear arms must be regarded as a substantive guarantee, not a prohibition that could be ignored so long as the States legislated in an evenhanded manner.”

The ruling builds upon the Court’s 2008 decision in D.C. v. Heller that invalidated the handgun ban in the nation’s capital. More importantly, that decision held that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms was a right the Founders specifically delegated to individuals. The justices affirmed that decision and extended its reach to the 50 states. Today’s ruling also invalidates Chicago’s handgun ban.

The Second Amendment stands firm with no meddling or changes. So important is the right to keep and bear arms to ensure the First Amendment remains intact. The Founding Fathers of the US were sensible, great men.

Chief Justice John Roberts was the most vocal advocate of using the Due Process Clause to extend the Second Amendment rights to the states. “I don’t see how you can read — I don’t see how you can read Heller and not take away from it the notion that the Second Amendment…was extremely important to the framers in their view of what liberty meant.”

The discussion over “liberty” was a major philosophical theme of the arguments. Gura and National Rifle Association lawyer Paul Clement argued that the rights articulated in the Second Amendment are fundamental freedoms and would exist to all Americans even if there was no law specifically saying so.

Oh that we could have such a document here. Or even the same rights.

To celebrate such a victory here is a little video for my readers to enjoy.
