At a campaign rally over the weekend, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump charged Hillary Clinton with “wanting to take your guns away,” as well as intending to “abolish the Second Amendment.”
In regards to gun control, Clinton has said District of Columbia v. Heller, which overturned the Washington, D.C., handgun ban in 2008, was a mistake by the Supreme Court. She has also shown strong support for expanding gun purchase background checks, as well as restoring the “assault weapons” ban of 1994.
In contrast, a recent campaign position paper quoted Trump as saying, “Law-abiding people should be allowed to own the firearm of their choice. The government has no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own.”
One Of Bill Clintons Greatest Honors Gun Control
He called it “one of the greatest honors of my life.” Of his eight years spent as commander-in-chief of the free world, former President Bill Clinton considers enacting gun-control laws one of his most important acts.
While appearing at a Brady Campaign event last Wednesday, Clinton bragged, “One of the great honors of my life was signing the Brady law , and then a year later in the crime bill, the ‘assault weapons’ ban and the ammunition clip ban .”
The former president conveniently left out the repercussions of those acts, as freedom-loving Americans exacted swift revenge at the polls. Even Clinton himself wrote of the 1994 elections, “We got the living daylights beat out of us … the NRA had a great night.”
Let’s not give another Clinton the chance to boast about taking away our guns. Get to the polls and vote freedom first this November!
Mad Moms Reveal Gun Banners True Goal
At a Brooklyn, N.Y., Mother’s Day anti-gun march funded by gun-ban billionaire Michael Bloomberg, some members veered off the misleading “gun safety” script and told the truth about what most in the gun-control movement believe and want.
Amongst the talk of “It’s all about gun safety,” and “This is not a Second Amendment issue,” one woman held a sign that read, “Nobody carrying loaded guns in public is a ‘good guy.’”
The sign, obviously addressing NRA EVP Wayne LaPierre’s statement that, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” is further proof that the gun-control movement is not about gun safety, but seeks to disarm even those who have applied for permits, passed background checks and taken required training to carry a concealed handgun.
Despite the constant lies of the gun-ban crowd, the truth does come through now and then.
Blaming NRA For Not Wanting To Be Blamed
In a snarky op-ed posted yesterday at WesternHerald.com titled “Opinion: The NRA has a persecution complex,” Carla Zorilla ridiculed NRA media properties for attempting to “paint themselves … as a persecuted group themselves.” And her timing was perfect.
Just last week, PressTV published a headline placing the blame for so-called “gun violence”—actually violent crime perpetrated by violent criminals—on the law-abiding members of the NRA. The headline read: “U.S. gun lobby responsible for gun violence: Analyst.”
Ironically, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton recently vowed to target NRA members the very first day in office if elected president. “I really support everything President Obama said he would do through regulation on guns but we’re going to start the very first day and tackle the gun lobby (read, the NRA) to try to reduce the outrageous number of people who are dying from gun violence in our country,” Clinton said.
But according to Zorilla, there’s nothing to see here; just move along.
Indiana On Track To Eclipse Background Check Record
Add Indiana to the list of states on pace to smash previous records for gun purchases. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is already reporting more than 730,000 criminal checks through April, an enormous increase over the 302,672 totaled in the the first four months of last year—a year when Indiana processed the state’s current record of more than 1 million checks.
Background checks in the Hoosier State have grown each year over the past dozen, however this year’s jump is far and away the highest. Midwest Gun Exchange manager Rocco Rigsby shared reasons for the spike with The South Bend Tribune. “We’re seeing more and more first-time buyers with concerns about their own safety,” Rigsby said. “There tends to be a little bit of a surge in election years, especially if people are undecided on what way it’s going to go and people feel their ability to purchase firearms may go one way or the other.”
Armed Texan Saves Son Self At McDonalds
A Texas man used his legally carried concealed handgun to protect himself and his son from an armed robber who accosted them in the drive-thru at a League City, Texas, McDonalds.
According to local law enforcement sources, the robber approached the man while he and his young son were in his pickup truck in the drive-thru about 2 o’clock Saturday afternoon and pointed a gun at him. After a brief struggle, the father pulled his own gun and shot his assailant.
“He’s thankful he’s alive and that his son’s alive,” the father’s attorney told ABC13 later that evening. “I think he would want other citizens to know they have a right to protect themselves. You have to be cautious all the time, wherever you are.”
