TX – Opinion – Firearm fantasies in college classrooms

RICHMOND.COM July 24, 2017 – Lisa Moore, Mia Carter and Jennifer Glass, professors at the University of Texas at Austin, had their day in court recently. They lost. The professors had petitioned for an exemption from Texas’ Senate Bill 11, which permits concealed carry license holders to bring firearms into most locations at public colleges and universities in Texas, including into classrooms and labs. Moore, Carter and Glass argued…

Nat’l – Opinion – 3D printed gun files are selling for $12 on dark web, new report reveals

3DERS.ORG – July 22, 2017 – The dark web is a hidden area of the internet that is deliberately inaccessible to Google’s servers, and it contains several ‘crypto-markets’, secret online marketplaces. 12 of these crypto-markets were included in the study, which collected data online for a week in September of last year. It found that instructions for making firearms were the second most popular firearms purchase on the dark…

Nat’l – Opinion – The Lunacy of the Left (And guns)

PATRIOTS RISING.COM July 18, 2017 – A useful way to experience the lunacy of Progressives is to discuss guns with your local lefty. Most people understand that gun control is worthless as a tool to control crime or even reduce gun accidents. The people using guns in crime are by definition not the sort to obey gun laws. Similarly, the people inclined to shoot themselves or friends while playing…

DC – Opinion – Organizing For Anarchy

FRONT PAGE MAGAZINE July 18, 2017 – Former President Obama’s army of community organizing thugs shows no signs of slowing down efforts to protect Obama’s policy legacy and undermine the Trump administration. Obama now owns and lives in a $8.1 million, 8,200-square-foot, walled mansion in Washington’s Embassy Row that he is using to command his community organizing cadres in the war against President Trump. Obama’s alter ego, Valerie Jarrett,…

OK – Opinion – Dianna Muller: Women’s March against the NRA? Count me out!

TULSA WORLD.COM July 15, 2017 – The Women’s March against the NRA and the claims this group has made against gun owners and the NRA are so egregious that I am dismayed. I support their right to protest, but oppose their claim to speak for all women. This is not so much a “women’s” march as it is a march to promote a far-left gun control agenda. I can…

VA – Opinion – Gun Control Groups: Good at Gloating, Bad at Counting on Advancing National Reciprocity Effort

NRA-ILA.ORG July 14, 2017 – Apparently, Michael Bloomberg is good at counting money but not so good at counting votes. This week, Breitbart reported that Everytown for Gun Safety, Michael Bloomberg’s gun ban conglomerate, was claiming a “win” for congressional inaction on national right to carry reciprocity. This just goes to show that not only do gun control advocates not tell the truth, they usually insist on telling the opposite of the…

Who Fights For Black Gun Rights? The NRA Responds To Controversial #Black Lives Matter Video

NRA-TV.COM July 14, 2017 – The Black Lives Matter movement began as a way to shed light on what they saw as the unjustified killings of black men by police officers. Millions of dollars from liberal organizations and billionaires like George Soros, they’re attacking the NRA and taking on extreme leftist issues that have nothing to do with the original purpose of #BlackLivesMatter. So Colion Noir asks them: What…

VA – Opinion – Permitless Carry Revolution Continues In The States

AMERICA’S 1ST FREEDOM.ORG (NRA) July 14, 2017 – To call the wave of permitless carry legislation sweeping our nation a “revolution” may sound hyperbolic at first blush, but it is accurate. After all, there were only six states that recognized permitless carry on Jan. 1, 2016. There are now 12. Those 12 states are Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Vermont, Wyoming and West…

Nat’l – Opinion – Bastille Day reminds us that our Second Amendment debates are distorted

WASHINGTON POST July 14, 2017 – Every year on July 14, France celebrates its national holiday, commemorating the storming of the Bastille in 1789. The festivities include fireworks, dances — and a military procession through Paris. Ironically, it was fear of the French army that first led Parisians to storm the Bastille. And distant though that event may be in both time and place, Americans should take note: this kind…

A Women’s March on the NRA – but do they represent a woman’s view on guns? (VIDEO)

FOX NEWS July 13, 2017 – Is there a women’s view on guns? The organizers of the massive Women’s March — which took place the day after President Trump’s inauguration — are holding a protest against the National Rifle Association on Friday.  After a 2.6 million strong turnout in January, they have high expectations to live up to. But Donald Trump received a respectable 42 percent of the women’s vote, so…

VA – Opinion – Deflection: A Primary Tool For Left-Leaning Media

AMERICA’S 1ST FREEDOM.ORG (NRA) July 13, 2017 – What do you do when your ideas stink, your message has been debunked and there is a negligible return on your investment in the gun control agenda? For anti-gun Democrats facing this dire situation, the answer is to deflect. Leftists and their allies utilize stories that titillate and joust for attention to keep Americans focused away from any good news. So much…

CA – Opinion – Losing Their Gun Rights With Barely a Whimper

AMERICAN SPECTATOR.ORG July 13, 2017 – Gun-rights activists often express the view that Americans will not easily give up their rights to gun ownership even if the laws eventually outlaw — or at least greatly restrict — the freedom of individuals to own firearms. The scenario they depict is bleak but simple: When armed agents come to their doors to confiscate people’s arsenals, some of those people can be…

How the NRA’s allegiance to cops undermines its credibility on gun rights

WASHINGTON POST July 11, 2017 – At long last, someone from the National Rifle Association has spoken up about Philando Castile. Sort of. During a CNN segment, NRA spokeswoman and pundit Dana Loesch said this: I think it’s absolutely awful. It’s a terrible tragedy that could have been avoided. I don’t agree with every single decision that comes out from courtrooms of America. There are a lot of variables in this…

VA – Opinion – The Left’s Latest NRA Smear Is Simply An Act Of Desperation

AMERICA’S 1ST FREEDOM.ORG (NRA) July 12, 2017 – Another day, another smear campaign against the NRA. The latest attack from the likes of Moms Demand Action’s Shannon Watts, Women’s March co-founder Tamika Mallory, U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., and a host of other celebrities, politicians and anti-gun activists have once again declared the NRA to be a basket of deplorables—an organization full of racist, sexist, xenophobic fascists. Why? Desperation,…

CA – Opinion – Federal court had to halt state gun law

ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER July 11, 2017 – July 1 was the day that law-abiding Californians almost became criminals without leaving their homes or lifting a finger. That’s when Proposition 63’s ban on the possession of high-capacity magazines, those that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, was scheduled to go into effect. To be clear, this law did not ban the sale or purchase of magazines with a capacity…

Nat’l – Opinion – After Failing To Issue Statement On Philando Castile Shooting, Women’s March Plans NRA Protest (VIDEO)

TOWNHALL.COM July 10, 2017 – The Women’s March is putting the National Rifle Association in its sights. On the event’s Facebook page, they have a planned march set for July 14 in which they say the following : Recent actions of the NRA demonstrate not only a disregard for the lives of black and brown people in America, but appear to be a direct endorsement of violence against women, our families…

TX – Opinion – The poor implications of Shockwave legalization

NORTH TEXAS DAILY.COM July 10, 2017 – If you were to pick up a copy of the “Tactical Weapons“ magazine this month, you would find the image of a man in police gear holding two massive guns. This is the Mossberg 590 Shockwave – a gun with a 14-inch barrel and a pistol grip – and I was surprised to find out these guns were recently legalized in Texas. Anyone from age 18 and…

NYC – Opinion – Stanford law prof gets it wrong on guns – right-to-carry reduces crime, not the other way around (Unrelated VIDEO)

FOX NEWS July 10, 2017 – Would you rely almost exclusively on trends in Hawaii to predict violent crime rates in Idaho, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, and Utah?  Would you look at Illinois to predict changes in Louisiana and South Carolina?  Illinois has a drastically different crime landscape, with half of its violent crime occurring in Chicago.  Though it it wouldn’t pass the laugh test for most people, an unpublished report…
