The Ban Plays On

GUNPROPLUS.COM February 21, 2018 – Does anyone even remember the 10-year Federal Assault Weapons Ban? It ran from 1994-2004 and made no measurable difference to crime at all. I’ve got an idea for another 10-year ban. One that will probably do a lot more to reduce gun violence—particularly high-profile mass shootings—than any “assault weapons” ban ever could. I propose a Federal Gun Violence Discussion Ban.  [full…

The Ban Plays On

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 — So many people are screaming about banning AR-15s because they are high-powered weapons of war that no one needs anyway.

Does anyone even remember the 10-year Federal Assault Weapons Ban? It ran from 1994-2004 and made no measurable difference to crime at all. I’ve got an idea for another 10-year ban. One that will probably…

Nat’l – Opinion – AT ISSUE – How to win the gun debate: Stop talking about guns

THE WEEK.COM February 21, 2018 – Forget guns. It’s time for liberals to recast America’s mass killings as a crime problem. And it’s time to cast politicians who sit on their hands in the face of such massacres — Trump chief among them — as soft on crime. 

NV – Opinion – Being a shooting victim doesn’t make you an expert on ending gun violence (VIDEO)

LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL February 20, 2018 – Being a shooting victim doesn’t make you an expert on ending gun violence. But you wouldn’t know that from watching CNN. It’s been a week since a monster killed 17 people at a Florida high school. The calls for gun control have been reflexive and ambiguous, but the media have found a new mouthpiece — shooting survivors. 

I’ve been shot in combat. And as a veteran, I’m telling you: allowing teachers to be armed is an asinine idea

CHARLOTTE FIVE.COM February 20, 2018 – Defending children is a must, but putting a firearm in the hands of even the most trained teacher isn’t the answer. Anyone suggesting this solution has clearly never experienced a situation like the one seen in Parkland because it oversimplifies the complexity of an active shooter situation, especially in close-quarters. It is not as easy as a “good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with…

Nat’l – Opinion – Florida school massacre won’t change our gun laws, but bridging our divides might work

USA TODAY February 20, 2018 – A different approach is needed to enact new national gun laws. We have to jettison the idea that the next gun horror will tip the scales toward action and instead bridge the divide at the heart of America’s split on guns — the divide between those who see guns primarily as a threat to their safety and those who see guns as a form…

Nat’l – Opinion – WATCH: NRATV’s Colion Noir Explains How to Stop School Shootings (VIDEO)

TOWNHALL.COM February 19, 2018 – In a new video, NRATV host Colion Noir is rather candid about how to prevent mass shootings, particularly at schools and colleges: 

Nat’l – Opinion – 7 Simple Steps to Eliminate School Shootings Overnight

TOWNHALL.COM February 19, 2018 – After days of bitter hurt, anger, deep savage argument, and plenty of non-thinking social media trolls blurting whatever comes to mind through their thumbs, it’s time we as Americans begin a genuine discussion about how to stop the next school shooting from occurring. It’s important that we do this even though gun deaths are by no means the most dangerous form of death in…

If You Want Gun Control, Stop Calling The NRA A ‘Terrorist Organization’

THE FEDERALIST.COM February 19, 2018 – Now that the smoke has settled after tragedy in Parkland, Florida, partisans on the Left and Right have hunkered down in their foxholes to fight a familiar fight. Many on the Left are so exasperated and furious with the lack of gun control measures in Congress that they have taken a fairly new route: calling the National Rifle Association (NRA) a terrorist organization. …

Nat’l – Opinion – Greg Gutfeld: How To Stop Mass Shootings Without Gutting the 2nd Amendment

REASON.COM February 18, 2018 – Saturday night on his compulsively watchable weekly show, Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld laid out an interesting set of ideas on how to stop mass shootings, especially at schools. His points include: Harden soft targets with security and training. Gutfeld notes that this is already being done by a wide swatch of business, entertainment, and political figures, plus many companies and organizations. If you see something, say…

Nat’l – Opinion- We Can’t Have A Debate About Guns If Liberals Keep Lying About Them

THE FEDERALIST.COM February 16, 2018 – There’s always a lot of emotion after a horrific school shooting, and that’s completely understandable. There is also an immediate push for vague “do-something” gun-control legislation often wholly untethered from the incidents it is purporting to stop, which is less understandable. It’s an endless task, but let’s just take Joe Scarborough’s Washington Post column on the Parkland shooting as an example, since he uses a…

Nat’l – Opinion – We Need an Accurate National Conversation About Guns

NATIONAL REVIEW.COM February 16, 2018 – Thank you, Washington Post, for stepping up to the plate and correcting a widely cited and shared piece of misinformation in the aftermath of the Florida shooting. There have not been 18 school shootings in the United States so far this year.  

Nat’l –Opinion – Why Didn’t Democrats Pass Gun Control When They Controlled Congress In Obama’s First Term?

HOT AIR.COM February 16, 2018 – A filibuster-proof majority is a precious thing. Republicans have never had one, ever, but Democrats enjoyed one less than a decade ago. It bears remembering that, as the horror in Parkland yesterday has made this a week in which not one but two Democratic legislative priorities are on the table in which liberal self-righteousness is conspicuous, even by their usual obnoxious standards.  [full…

Firearm Policy Coalition Issues Statement Regarding Douglas High School Shooting

FIREARMS POLICY COALITION.ORG February 15, 2018 – Earlier today, President Donald Trump said that “no child, no teacher should ever be in danger in an American school.” We agree. But until our state and local governments enact laws that actually protect our children and teachers with real physical security barriers, controlled access to school grounds, and armed quick-response officers on every campus, our children and the people entrusted to…

DC – Opinion – Repeal gun-free zones

USA TODAY February 15, 2018 – The Florida shooting this week was heartbreaking. As a father of 10 children, it hurts to see this kind of violence being perpetrated against our schoolchildren. But this week’s events are also infuriating because we refuse to learn the lessons of the past. Killers continue targeting locations where guns are not allowed. Ninety-eight percent of public mass shootings in this country occur in gun-free zones…

Nat’l – Opinion – New Gun Policies Won’t Stop Mass Shootings, but People Can

NATIONAL REVIEW February 15, 2018 – The United States is facing a puzzling paradox. Even as gun crime has plunged precipitously from the terrible highs of the early 1990s, mass shootings have increased. Consider this: 15 of the 20 worst mass shootings in U.S. history have occurred since the Columbine school shooting in 1999. The five worst have all occurred since 2007, and three of those five were in…

NC – Opinion – How my trip to the shooting range changed how I think about guns and gun owners

CHARLOTTE OBSERVER  February 14, 2018 – I did not go to a shooting range expecting to learn anything other than how to shoot a gun. It was just something new and interesting that I wanted to try. For most of my life I had been inundated with information, misinformation and political messaging surrounding guns and those who own them. It was another on a long list of topics that…

OK – Opinion – Constitutional carry; The pros and cons

STILLWATER NEWS PRESS February 14, 2018 – Constitutional carry has come to Oklahoma, but like all things guns, there are points to quibble over. Oklahoma is one of many states that honor carry permits from many other states on a reciprocal basis. Thus, if you are heading for say, Tennessee, you can carry your weapon in some degree of confidence that it is legal. However, if you choose constitutional…
