CA – GUN CRIME – California arms traffickers used Snapchat to market illegal weapons

Recent investigations show that in the Bay Area, social media is playing a significant role in firearms sales.  One post showed the man walking through a home brandishing a gun with a high-capacity magazine and tapping an unidentified woman on her buttocks with the barrel. In another, he waved a pistol loaded with a 50-round drum magazine in the air while driving a car. They’re two of…

NAT’L – MEDIA – NASCAR Informs Online Gun Seller They Won’t Allow Ads Depicting Assault Weapons

NASCAR has reportedly banned all advertisements featuring assault weapons due to a “gradual shift” in the company’s position on guns. “We just heard from NASCAR on a number of gun-related ads and unfortunately, due a gradual shift in NASCAR’s position on guns, these ads must be edited/changed—especially those that are depicted as assault-style rifles/sniper rifles,” National Event Publications said in an email to an online gun retailer. “NASCAR is…

NAT’L – RETAILERS – Left’s Perspective About Walmart And Guns Shredded By Reporter Who Wanted To Buy A Firearm

For the last couple of weeks, Democratic presidential candidates have attacked Walmart for selling firearms after a few employees of the business giant called for a walkout because the company sells firearms. But as Twitchy noted, a reporter for Business Insider destroyed the perspective the candidates and some gun control advocates were pushing by visiting Walmart and discovering that it is anything but simple to purchase a firearm there. After news…

AR – RETAILERS – Walmart CEO Responds To Employee’s Petition To Stop Selling Guns

Walmart CEO Doug McMillon has responded to a petition calling on his company to stop selling guns in the wake of two mass shootings at the retailer’s stores. Thomas Marshall, a Walmart e-commerce employee based in San Bruno, California, recently organized a walk out of 30 employees to protest the company’s continued sale of firearms, and he also organized a petition that earned more than 129,000 signatures,…

FL – NRA – NRA Lobbyist Unloads On Proposed Assault Weapons Amendment

Florida’s top gun lobbyist took a second shot Thursday at a proposed constitutional amendment that seeks to prevent the possession and sale of assault weapons. Marion Hammer, a lobbyist for the National Rifle Association and Unified Sportsmen of Florida, appeared before state economists for the second time in a week to clarify her opposition to the proposal she claims would result in all rifles and shotguns being…

VA – NRA – How bad are things at the NRA?

Their president was ousted. Their top lobbyist resigned over allegations he engaged in an extortion scheme to kick out the chief executive, Wayne LaPierre. Board members are resigning regularly, saying they’ve lost confidence in the group’s leadership. They’re spending more money than they take in, and they’re in a brutal legal battle with their former ad agency. Oh, and there are investigations into their tax-exempt status. The…

CA – GUN CRIME – Disgruntled employee had arsenal of guns, threatened mass shooting at California hotel, police say

Police in California say a mass shooting may have been prevented when a co-worker reported that a disgruntled employee had threatened to shoot other workers and customers at the hotel. The man, who had several high-powered weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammunition at his Los Angeles-area home, was arrested Tuesday, police said. Rodolfo Montoya, 37, who was arrested at his home in nearby Huntington Beach, communicated…

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…

DC – GUN POLITICS – Gun Control Groups Quietly Lobbied for Looser Gun Law in Effort to Undermine SCOTUS Case

Some of the country’s leading gun control groups quietly lobbied earlier this summer for a New York law that loosens restrictions on where legal gun owners can take their firearms in order to undermine a pending Supreme Court case, records show. Everytown for Gun Safety and Giffords both lobbied New York lawmakers on Assembly Bill A07752 and Senate Bill S6151 which allowed law-abiding gun owners to legally transport their firearms to new locations like shooting…

DC – GUN POLITICS – Democrats move on gun control: House due to vote on banning high-capacity magazines

Some House Democrats will return early from the summer recess to advance gun control legislation, including a bill banning large ammunition magazines. The House Judiciary Committee announced a Sept. 4 vote on a group of measures aimed at reducing gun violence. The committee will vote to advance the measure on Sept. 4 and plans a Sept. 25 hearing on banning “military-style assault weapons,” Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold…

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 – GUN POLITICS – Democrats Cite MapLight In Brief Calling On Supreme Court To Drop Gun Control Case

Five Democratic senators last week called on the U.S. Supreme Court to drop its review of New York City’s gun control rules, claiming that political spending by the National Rifle Association and anonymous donors has exerted a malign influence on judicial decisions. The case, brought by an NRA state affiliate, the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, could stifle national gun control efforts by compromising regulations…

NAT’L – GUN CONTROL – Poll: Americans, Including Republicans And Gun Owners, Broadly Support Red Flag Laws

Strong majorities of Americans from across the political spectrum support laws that allow family members or law enforcement to petition a judge to temporarily remove guns from a person who is seen to be a risk to themselves or others, according to a new APM Research Lab/Guns & America/Call To Mind survey.

These laws, often called extreme risk protection order laws, or red flag laws, have…

DC – GUN POLITICS – Trump Goes Dark on Gun Control After Pledging Background Checks ‘Like We’ve Never Had Before’

It’s been roughly half a month since dual mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, forced the president, his administration, and Capitol Hill lawmakers into yet another debate about gun control. And in those short weeks, Donald Trump has already started to pump the brakes on his support for background checks legislation the likes of which, he said, “we’ve never had before.” “He’s started to move on,”…

DC – GUN POLITICS – Democratic leaders assail Trump’s apparent reversal on background checks

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are lamenting President Donald Trump’s apparent about-face on enhanced backgrounds for firearm sales, with Schumer calling the move “not only disappointing but also heartbreaking.” Trump told reporters this weekend he will look “very strongly” at ideas from both Democrats and Republicans but said to remember that “we already have a lot of background checks.” Those remarks followed Trump’s Aug. 7 claim that…
