William Shakespeare wrote “Frailty, thy name is woman,” in his play “Hamlet.” With apologies to Shakespeare, I took liberties with his famous line when titling this article. But I just could not resist, given Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama’s latest action. It seems that yesterday (March 1, 2013), Obama pardoned seventeen people for “minor” offenses. [...]

Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn is a vocal supporter of President Obama’s proposals to ban guns and ammunition. Though he claims to be a supporter of the Second Amendment, he also uses the common democrat talking points like “no one needs an assault weapon” and “you don’t need a to kill a quail with a 30 [...]
David Chipman is a paid lobbyist for Mayors Against Illegal Guns which was founded by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino for the purpose of imposing stricter gun laws across America. The group has also received over $1 million in funding from George Soros’ pet project, the Joyce Foundation. Chipman was [...]
After days of hearings in Minnesota House committee meetings, the state senate is now hearing testimony on more gun control legislation for the second day at the Capitol in St. Paul. The Senate Judiciary Committee is taking input this week from experts and the public regarding proposed gun control legislation in Minnesota. Hundreds of protestors [...]
One of the central tenants of “Gun Control” is the background check. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence says that, “… 92% of Americans and 74% of NRA members support background checks.” They, of course, offer no source for these percentages. They also say, “‘Universal background checks’ on all gun sales would have a [...]
It is ludicrous to imagine that not allowing some guns to be manufactured based on what they look like or how many bullets they will hold at any one given time, will do anything to curb the rampant violence in our nation. While our lawmakers bemoan the availability of what they mistakenly call “assault weapons”, [...]
If you murder children with guns, the world will regard you as a monster; if you shoot cops you will become a cult hero to the Left. When 20 year-old psycho Adam Lanza went on a gun-killing spree, murdering 20 children and seven adults, he became the most hated man in America and [...]
He won’t be happy until he completely un-arms the American citizens. YouTube Description: Even Obama’s experts say his gun control policies won’t work. According to an internal Department of Justice memorandum, a gun ban, like the one being debated right now in Congress, will not work without a mandatory gun buyback, and “universal” background checks [...]
While it is horrible that Gabrielle Gifford’s will forever live with the effects of a violent attack with a gun, did she forget that she owns a gun herself?
The testimony from Rob Doar at the Minnesota House Public Safety Finance and Policy Committee Hearing was a lesson in firearms that every gun control advocate needs to see. Unfortunately, several Democrat legislators, including the author of the bill to ban such firearms and equipment, felt it was unnecessary to be a part of the [...]
Supporters and detractors of new gun control legislation showed up in great numbers Tuesday for the first of three days of hearings on the topic at the State Office Building in St. Paul, Minnesota, opposite the capitol. The hearings began at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, with testimony scheduled throughout the day, Wednesday and Thursday. The [...]
The National Sheriff’s Association has come out saying that they do not support liberal Democrat’s proposals for gun control. It appears that the only group still delusional about how to curb gun violence is the White House (oh, and Mayor Bloomberg).
As Harry Reid bolts from Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s renewed push to ban so-called assault weapons, other senators, including Pat Leahy and Al Franken, may politick their way into killing the bill in committee. As Ed Morrissey of Hot Air posted yesterday, No one thought Reid would be excited to support a new assault-weapons ban. He didn’t support the [...]
It would behoove us to consider, when pondering the option of equipping teachers with fire-arms, that Americans in favor of such proposals are not suggesting the distribution of weapons in the same manner that the students receive their books on the first day of school. No one recommending that administrators call the teachers down to [...]
No, you didn’t misread that title. Yes, there are leftists out there that think unloaded guns can hurt people. And yes, unfortunately, those leftists are in office! If this doesn’t go viral…… Well, all I can say is that I hope this California Councilwoman doesn’t have any aspirations to move up in the political world. [...]
