DC – Gun Control – What House Democrats can do about guns (VIDEO)

The results of the midterm elections suggest that the movement made headway in suburban districts across the country, but failed in more rural, conservative states. The next Congress may then pass bills regarding assault weapons and background checks in the new Democratic House only to see them stall in the even more Republican Senate. For gun control advocates, that’s progress, but not enough. 

CA – Gun Control – Thousand Oaks shooting: Why didn’t California’s strict gun laws stop it?

The Wednesday night shooting massacre at a Thousand Oaks country music bar was the kind of tragedy that would seem more likely in states such as Nevada or Florida known for permissive gun regulations that allow military-style semiautomatic rifles and high-capacity ammunition magazines. But it happened in California, seen as a model for firearm regulation and the only state given an “A” rating by the Giffords Law Center to…

Nat’l – Opinion – A Blue Ripple, A Red Senate Wall And What It Means For The Firearms Industry

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is going to keep up the blistering pace of confirming judges to the bench and Trump Administration nominees won’t be automatically mired in the morass of politics. That’s especially important when it comes to the Supreme Court.

CA  – Gun Crime – Democrats renew push for gun control, assault weapons ban (VIDEO)

Just hours after the killings by a lone gunman in a California bar, Democrats began lining up to demand more gun control, an issue that fell off the map during the midterm congressional elections despite the shootings in a Pittsburgh synagogue. “We need to do something about this.

Nat’l – Opinion – Stricter gun laws did not prevent California shooting

DC – Gun Politics – Democrats promise congressional action on gun control

Newly ascendant Democrats are promising congressional action on gun control amid a rash of mass shootings, including a late-night assault at a California bar that killed 12 people.

CA – Opinion – In California, gun control fails once again (VIDEO)

Once again, we see the failure of gun control in preventing a horrible tragedy. Wednesday’s California bar shooting was in a gun-free zone, where good guys cannot legally carry firearms. Gun-free zones are magnets for killers. Consider that almost 98 percent of public mass shootings in this country occur in these mandatory victim zones.

NY – Gun Politics – Andrew Cuomo’s Unconstitutional Assault on the NRA

Andrew Cuomo’s methods may be obscure, but his assault on the First Amendment is anything but subtle. “If the @NRA goes bankrupt because of the State of New York,” the governor tweeted in August, “they’ll be in my thoughts and prayers. I’ll see you in court.” 

Int’l – Opinion – Trump, guns and Gab
