NAT’L – OPINION – Gun Firms is preparing for ‘panic buying’ as the elections approach

Firearms and ammunition companies are waiting for signs of increasing focus on weapons as the 2020 presidential election approaches, according to CL King.

“Under current Republican politics, gun lovers have not panicked nearly as much as in previous cycles after mass shootings or the Democratic Party’s tightening rhetoric to tighten gun ownership laws,” said Scott Stember said in a note. “While the lion’s share of industry players prefer not to…

NAT’L – OPINION – Are Gun Rights Racist? The Media Would Have You Think So

IT'S THE TEA PARTY ALL OVER AGAIN. WAY BACK IN 2009 THE PRESS, FOLLOWED BY A GAGGLE OF LEFT-WING COMMENTATORS AND POLITICIANS, DID A NUMBER ON TEA PARTY PROTESTS, OFTEN PORTRAYING THEM—WITH LITTLE EVIDENCE—AS DRIVEN BY RACIST RAGE AGAINST PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA RATHER THAN PRINCIPLED OPPOSITION TO HIS ADMINISTRATION’S POLICIES. THESE SAME TACTICS WERE ON FULL DISPLAY MONDAY IN THE COVERAGE OF PRO-SECOND AMENDMENT PROTESTS THAT TOOK PLACE IN RICHMOND, VIRGINIA.

TX – OPINION – Inside a Kingwood gun shop, no judgments. Just listening and learning.

THE SOFT-SPOKEN KINGWOOD, TEXAS GUN SHOP EMPLOYEE MINCES NO WORDS AS HE ADDRESSES A HUDDLE OF SIX WOMEN, SOME WEARING BRIGHT RED T-SHIRTS FROM MOMS DEMAND ACTION. THAT’S WHY THEY’RE HERE, IN A STORE WHERE DOZENS OF HANDGUNS AND ARMALITE RIFLES LINE THE WALLS LIKE CEREAL BOXES IN A GROCERY STORE. THEY’RE NOT HERE TO DEBATE THE SECOND AMENDMENT. NOT TO ADVOCATE FOR GUN CONFISCATION. NOT TO SHAME FOLKS FOR LEGALLY BUYING OR SELLING GUNS. THEY’VE COME TO LISTEN, TO LEARN AND TO LEAVE KNOWING BETTER HOW TO ENCOURAGE RESPONSIBLE GUN OWNERS TO STORE AND SECURE THEIR WEAPONS.

MI – MEDIA/OPINION – How the Gun Show Became the Trump Show

Dear Washington, The snow was coming down sideways as I encountered a growling pride of pickup trucks jockeying for position in what was once a parking lot, searching for a place to stop searching. Some drivers had given up on circling and sat idling in anticipation of a coming vacancy. Others got creative, dropping into low gear to mount glacial embankments where yellow lines were once visible. The one thing…

VA – OPINION – What I Saw At The Richmond Second Amendment Rally

I attended the pro-Second Amendment rally this week in Richmond, Virginia. My hotel is approximately six blocks from where the event transpired, so it was an easy walk. On the walk from my hotel to the event, I fell in with many other attendees. Vendors were manifold, and some were journeyman classicists: Gadsden flags, and paraphernalia adorned with the Gadsden snake and motto, barely outpaced “Molon Labe” and “Sic…

VA – OPINION – Marching around with guns on your chest? That’s all about fear.

Y’all, it smelled like fear out here in Virginia. Scores of men – plus a handful of women — dressed up in battle rattle and draped themselves with assault weapons, long guns and handguns on Monday. They strapped hunting knives to their thighs, wore body armor and body cameras on their chests, shoulders and helmets. To a rally. A peaceful rally. On city streets in a quiet state capitol…

NAT’L – OPINION  – We are in a struggle for liberty. Why are we allowing the left to make it just about guns?

THE LATEST LIE FROM THE LIBERTY GRABBER LEFT IS AN ATTEMPT TO SMEAR INNOCENT FREEDOM ADVOCATES ON THE RIGHT AS EQUIVALENT TO KKK MEMBERS, NAZIS AND WHITE SUPREMACISTS. THE NEXT FEW DAYS WILL SEE THEM WORK OVERTIME TO EQUATE ‘GUN-RIGHTS ADVOCATES’ WITH EVERY ‘HATE GROUP’ IMAGINABLE, SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY WANT TO KEEP THEIR UNALIENABLE HUMAN RIGHTS.

NJ – OPINION – Allowing concealed carry gun law in New Jersey is common sense (VIDEO)

THE TOPIC OF GUNS IN AMERICA REARS ITS UGLY HEAD EVERY TIME THERE IS A SHOOTING. LAST MONTH, WHEN AN ARMED MAN STOPPED A GUNMAN AT A CHURCH NEAR FORT WORTH, IT BECAME A RALLYING CRY FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE THE ONLY WAY TO STOP A BAD GUY WITH A GUN IS A GOOD GUY WITH A GUN, AND FOR THOSE WHO POINT OUT THAT THE STATES AND CITIES WITH THE MOST STRINGENT GUN LAWS HAVE THE HIGHEST INCIDENTS OF GUN CRIMES. THOSE STATES HAVE BASICALLY MADE IT CLEAR THAT LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROTECT THEMSELVES, AND THE POLICE HAVE STATED TIME AND AGAIN THAT THEY ARE VERY RARELY IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME TO PREVENT ATTACKS.

AR – OPINION – Classic cartridge back in vogue

The word is out. The .30-06 Springfield is back in vogue. Interaction with outdoors media organizations has taught me that coverage for themes and issues is often coordinated. This column isn’t about the .30-06 as much as a commentary on the forces that drive the news. Exhibit A is an article titled “.30-06 in Africa … Still one of the most versatile choices,” by Craig Boddington in the January/February…

VA – OPINION – Ideological Agenda vs Constitutional Right…the Crisis in Virginia

There is a situation brewing in the Commonwealth of Virginia, a place that our first, third, and fifth Presidents called home. Virginia is also the home of the authors of our Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. In a previous CNSNews op-ed, I shared some quotes from those Founding Fathers of Virginia on the topic of the Second Amendment. However, it appears that…

VA – OPINION – Virginia’s Giddy Gun Controllers

TODAY, THE VIRGINIA SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE WILL BEGIN CONSIDERATION OF A HOST OF GUN CONTROL BILLS. ONE WEEK FROM TODAY, GROUPS SUCH AS THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION AND THE VIRGINIA CIVILIAN DEFENSE LEAGUE ARE PLANNING A MASS DEMONSTRATION AGAINST THE BILLS. NORTHAM AND THE DEMS WILL TRY TO MAKE THESE PROTESTS MOOT BY GETTING THEIR LEGISLATION PASSED QUICKLY.

VA – OPINION – Gun opponents take aim at rifles

The Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show, sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, begins in 11 days. This is the event where you can check out the latest firearms and gear destined for retailers. (Editor’s Note: The SHOT Show is not open to the public). This year, after attending for 17 years, I’m staying home. There is too much uproar relative to Virginians possibly losing or seeing…

NAT’L – OPINION – 10 American Gun Companies Proving The U.S. Makes The Best Firearms (VIDEOS)

WHEN YOU START LOOKING AT IT, YOU'LL FIND THAT MANY OF THE MOST FAMOUS FIREARMS COMPANIES: GLOCK, HECKLER & KOCH, BERETTA, SIG SAUER AND MORE ARE FOREIGN FIREARMS MADE OVERSEAS. WHILE MOST OF THESE GUN MAKERS NOW HAVE FACTORIES HERE IN THE STATES, SOME GUN OWNERS ARE LIKELY LOOKING FOR TRUE AMERICAN FIREARMS. HERE ARE SOME OF THE MORE PROMINENT MEMBERS OF THE FIREARMS INDUSTRY WITH ROOTS RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA THAT CONTINUE TO PROVE SOME OF THE BEST GUNS IN THE WORLD COME FROM THE U.S.A.

VA – AT ISSUE – A Changed Dynamic

Rhetorical bullets are already flying as politicians prepare for what is starting to look like the greatest gun law fight in a generation when state legislators return to Richmond this month. Aided by campaign donations from gun-control advocacy groups and increasing public support for related policy changes, Democrats gained enough seats in the state Senate and House of Delegates on Nov. 5 to take control of both chambers of…

NE – OPINION – Government should allow concealed carry of firearms

The same weekend that Orthodox Jews in Monsey, New York, were fighting off another knife-wielding anti-Semite thug with chairs and coffee tables — they were fortunate that the perpetrator hadn’t brought a firearm, like the killer who targeted a yeshiva in Jersey City only a few weeks earlier — Jack Wilson, a 71-year-old congregant and security volunteer at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, took mere…

NAT’L – OPINION – Guns, God and the American way

There are perhaps no two themes that signal the political division among Americans more saliently than guns and religion. Those themes have resonated deeply in the recent elections of both President Obama and President Trump. Obama’s carefully crafted folksy image was tarnished by an out-of-touch moment on the campaign trail in 2008, in which he managed to link guns, religion, free trade and anti-immigration sentiment in one fell swoop, stating about working-class white…

NAT’L – OPINION – The Attacks in New York and Texas Move the Gun Control Debate in the Direction the Founders Wanted

Two bloody tragedies, just a few hours apart on December 28-29—the mass stabbings at a synagogue in Monsey, New York, and the thwarted mass shooting at a church in Forth Worth, Texas—have put questions about guns and public safety in a valuable new light. How do we stay safe? Especially in our houses of worship? And what should we do about the menace of marauders in our midst?  Yet at the same time, we could also say…

CO – OPINION – It’s just like the sanctuary city movement, only with live ammunition

THE IDEA OF “SANCTUARY CITIES” AND “CITIES OF REFUGE” IS CENTURIES OLD AND COMES WITH A LOT OF HISTORICAL AND RELIGIOUS TRAPPINGS WHICH LEND IT LEGITIMACY. A LOT OF PROGRESSIVES WILL TELL YOU THAT JESUS WOULD HAVE APPROVED. THAT’S BECAUSE PROGESSIVES THINK THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTION TO AMERICAN POLITICAL THOUGHT WAS THE DOCTRINE OF “NULLIFICATION,” WHICH HELD THAT STATES COULD REFUSE TO ENFORCE FEDERAL LAWS THEY DIDN’T APPROVE OF WITHIN THEIR BORDERS. WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY WHAT SELF-DECLARED SANCTUARY CITIES ARE DOING — NULLIFYING FEDERAL LAW THEY DON’T LIKE WITHIN THEIR BORDERS.
