NH – OPINION – I Was an NRA Lobbyist. Here’s My Road Map for Gun Reform.

I’m a long-time gun rights proponent with pretty solid credentials. I lobbied for the NRA. I am the president of the Independent Firearm Owners Association and I even gave Ronald Reagan his first shooting lesson with a customized AR-15 when I ran the Firearm Industry’s Trade Association in 1992. I am also someone who has worked successfully on bipartisan gun control measures, specifically a child safety lock…

NAT’L – OPINION – Why Does ‘Compromise’ Always Mean Gun Control Wins?

People often ask me why I am so unwilling to “compromise” on gun control. In reality, I’m not. A compromise is supposed to mean both sides of an argument get something out of the deal. Neither side gets everything they want, but they both at least get something. When people ask me what I would be willing to compromise on, I give them a simple answer: I would trade…

VA – OPINION – The Coming Wave of Anti-Gun Research

Popular myth, shoved at us by so many in the mainstream media, has it that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is barred from doing research on gun violence. The NRA is often vilified in news stories on this topic, as many in the mainstream media, as well as the politicians who want to take away your right to bear arms, claim that NRA lobbying…

NC – OPINION – Armed on Aisle 3

What is it with guns and Walmart? The two have dovetailed in recent headlines, with varying degrees of consequence, since the terrifying and deadly incident in an El Paso Walmart on Aug. 3 that took the lives of 22 people and left 24 seriously wounded. In Wilkesboro on Aug. 10, Jimmy Roger Minton, 29, threatened a police officer with a pellet pistol in a sporting goods store….

The Biggest Obstacle to Gun Control May Be the Supreme Court

COMMONDREAMS.ORG – August 21, 2019 – In the wake of recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, the biggest obstacle to effective gun control may not be President Trump, Mitch McConnell or even the National Rifle Association (NRA) but the United States Supreme Court.

It’s been a long time since the Supreme Court considered a…

CT – OPINION – Democrats fail their constituents on gun violence

This last month has been hard on America. At a time where neighbors of all political stripes should be mourning the loss of innocent lives and assessing what’s gone wrong in our culture, elected Democrats here in Connecticut have instead raised the volume of their divisive rhetoric. The so-called leaders who stood on the steps of the state Capitol recently to pass judgment on their political adversaries…

NAT’L – OPINION – Gun control won’t help, more guns will

Gun control is not the answer to America’s gun violence. In the recent mass shootings, the shooters purchased their weapons legally. Likewise, the policies promoted by gun control activists would not impact mass shootings. Last year, the RAND Corp. conducted a survey of academic research and did not find any of the policies they looked at would reduce mass shootings: “We found no qualifying studies showing that any of the 13 policies we investigated decreased mass shootings.” As usual…

NAT’L – OPINION – Trump caves on guns again — and why that might actually be a good thing

This may sound perverse, but I’m sort of glad that Donald Trump has done the traditional cave on gun-safety legislation. It took him a little more than two weeks after El Paso and Dayton to strongly suggest that he was no longer interested in strengthening background checks — noting that “people don’t realize we have very strong background checks right now” — or pursuing a federal red flag law,…

DC – OPINION – Supreme Court May Be Biggest Obstacle to Gun Control

In the wake of recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, the biggest obstacle to effective gun control may not be President Trump, Mitch McConnell or even the National Rifle Association (NRA) but the United States Supreme Court. It’s been a long time since the Supreme Court considered a major Second Amendment case. Eleven years ago, the court delivered a landmark victory to the…

NAT’L – OPINION – Trump plan to head off mass killings is wishful thinking despite latest success

Following months of investigation, federal authorities have arrested Justin Olsen, 18, in connection to online threats against law enforcement and Planned Parenthood.  A subsequent search of his parent’s home uncovered hundreds of rounds of ammunition. We will never know — fortunately — whether Olsen would actually have put his plans into action, or whether it was more a reflection of adolescent bravado. But it…

TX – OPINIION – Two Views: Best way to protect yourself is by carrying a gun

Life is precious. Your life is precious, and you probably protect it every day in small, ordinary ways: you give yourself food and water, use a seat belt, get some sleep (but probably not enough), and look both ways before you cross a street. But we need to talk about something that may be uncomfortable: protecting your life from evil people who try to end it. Why…

NAT’L – OPINION – Why a repeal of the 2nd Amendment would not be enough to stop gun violence

Since America called for a repeal of the Second Amendment in 2013, accidental and intentional deaths from guns in the United States have increased from 80 to 100 per day. The only significant change in federal law since 2013 is the bump stock ban regulation promulgated by the administration of President Trump. The regulation went into effect in March 2019, but it is under a legal challenge…

PA – OPINION – Mental health support doesn’t advance the ‘Guns-and-Racism’ narrative

It’s been a week since 31 people were murdered in two mass shootings within 24 hours. Despite numerous differences between the two horrific incidents in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, there was a crucial common denominator: hysterical public reaction. A few public officials offered tepid platitudes of thoughts and prayers, but then a tipping point on gun violence debates was reached. Dry kindling was collected over…

NAT’L – OPINION – Judge Andrew Napolitano: Gun confiscation under ‘red flag’ laws is unconstitutional (VIDEO)

The concept of a “red flag” law — which permits the confiscation of lawfully owned weapons from a person because of what the person might do — violates both the presumption of innocence and the due process requirement of proof of criminal behavior before liberty can be infringed. The presumption of innocence puts the burden for proving a case on the government. Because the case to be…

DC – OPINION – Rep. Ron Wright: Is the gun control debate about solutions or political gamesmanship?

A cacophony of voices has emanated from the political class since the tragic shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Much of the noise comprises self-serving platitudes and finger-pointing that should be largely ignored. But this is still an opportunity for people of good faith to come together to craft solutions without political recriminations. We should not let the opportunity pass, even if we are criticized…

PA – OPINION – Breaking down the politics of the gun issue

Mass shootings always evoke the same responses: horror, sadness, anger, “thoughts and prayers,” and calls for action. Most think that last point can only be achieved through political action. In that regard, and given the stakes of the 2020 election, let’s analyze which side might come out ahead. 1) The biggest advantage swings to Republicans, because the cardinal rules of electoral politics favor them: motivation and…

NAT’L – OPINION – Joe Biden Is Wrong. There Is No Compelling Evidence That Assault-Weapon Bans Work. (VIDEO)

Presidential candidate Joe Biden writes: Many police departments have reported an increase in criminals using assault weapons since 2004. And multiple analyses of the data around mass shootings provide evidence that, from 1994 to 2004, the years when assault weapons and high-capacity magazines were banned, there were fewer mass shootings — fewer deaths, fewer families needlessly destroyed. Somewhat perplexingly, the links on “multiple analyses” and “fewer mass shootings” actually go to the same study,…

Trump Is Unlikely to Commit Political Suicide by Betraying Us on Guns (VIDEO)

TOWNHALL.COM August 12, 2019 – Donald Trump is a lot of things, but stupid is not one of them.

Like all of us, he is understandably horrified by the murder sprees of that progressive environmental eugenics weirdo and that member of Big Chief Warren’s tribe.* But Trump is also keenly aware that any betrayal of his supporters on…
