NAT’L – GUN CONTROL/GUN RIGHTS – The Never-Ending War Over Gun Statistics

NATIONAL REVIEW.COM August 5, 2020 – The debate over gun control is in part a debate about fundamental rights, the things that a government should never deny to the citizens to whom it is supposed to be subordinate. Plenty of us conservatives would never surrender our right to keep and bear arms on that principle alone. But it’s a heck of a lot easier to win this debate if gun control doesn’t…

KS – GUN RIGHTS – Religion shapes American attitudes about gun ownership, study shows

WHETHER IT'S A FEAR OF VIOLENCE OR A STEADFAST BELIEF IN CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, AMERICANS HAVE STRONG OPINIONS ON WHY THEY NEED GUNS. BUT CONCERNS ABOUT SATAN AND ARMAGEDDON ALSO ENTER INTO THEIR DECISION-MAKING. "PEOPLE HAVE THESE STEREOTYPES OF RELIGIOUS INDIVIDUALS AND THINK THEIR CONNECTIONS TO GUNS ARE SIMPLE, WHEN IN FACT THEY'RE FAIRLY COMPLEX," SAID MARGARET KELLEY, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF AMERICAN STUDIES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS. "ONE OF OUR MAIN FINDINGS IS RELIGION ACTUALLY DRIVES RESPONSIBLE GUN OWNERSHIP.

NAT’L – GUN RIGHTS – Fishing for Trouble

I’m about to make a significant number of my fellow firearms enthusiasts upset. But to mitigate the effect, at least somewhat, let me say what I believe. I believe the only reason to strip someone of their right to own a firearm is a felony conviction involving violence. There is a huge difference between someone who is 18 and writes a bad check for $500 and someone who is…

IL – GUN RIGHTS – The Chicago Gun Myth

The tragically incompetent mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” this weekend to deflect attention from the horror show unfolding in her city by blaming interlopers for its spiking murder rate: “We are being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons — that is hurting cities like Chicago.” Although these accusations have…

NAT’L – GUN RIGHTS – Help Us Safeguard the Second Amendment

You’re not paranoid: Democrats do want to take your guns away. There are many great reasons to contribute to the National Review webathon, but I believe that none is more important than the publication’s steadfast defense of the Second Amendment. After the outbreak of the coronavirus, millions of Americans, feeling helpless and besieged by forces outside their control, began purchasing firearms to protect their families, property, and community. Once the lawlessness and fanaticism of…

VA – GUN RIGHTS – Don’t Count On American Compliance With Gun Confiscation

WHEN FORMER CONGRESSMAN BETO O’ROURKE SUGGESTED DURING HIS PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN THAT AMERICANS WOULD SIMPLY COMPLY WITH HIS PROPOSED LAWS TO CONFISCATE TENS OF MILLIONS OF THEIR FIREARMS, HIS SPOKESMAN, CHRIS EVANS, LATER CONFIRMED: “WHEN A MANDATORY BUYBACK PROGRAM FOR ASSAULT WEAPONS IS ENACTED, IT IS THE LAW. WE EXPECT PEOPLE TO FOLLOW THE LAW HERE IN THE UNITED STATES, AND WE KNOW THAT AMERICANS ARE LAW-ABIDING PEOPLE.” OTHERS, HOWEVER, SAY, “DON’T COUNT ON IT.” NON-COMPLIANCE WITH GUN-CONFISCATION LAWS HAS BEEN WIDESPREAD EVEN IN COUNTRIES THAT DON’T PROTECT THE RIGHT OF CITIZENS TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS. SECOND, AMERICANS ARE ALREADY NOTORIOUSLY NON-COMPLIANT WITH STRICT GUN-CONTROL MEASURES IN STATES THAT HAVE ENACTED THEM ON A SMALLER SCALE.
