Cheerleaders for gun control have oft-cited Australia as the "gold standard." Now their government is literally shooting them in the back.
Joe Biden is constantly called “the moderate candidate”. Compared to socialist Bernie Sanders, maybe. But don’t be fooled by this relativistic nomenclature. Compared to most Americans, Biden is still further left. Given Biden’s recent dust up with a union worker in Michigan over gun control, it’s a good idea to use this as a jumping off point. Many Americans hold their Constitutional Second Amendment right dear, but a moderate position on gun control no longer exists on the left. Biden told the Michigan worker he was “full of sh*t” for suggesting Biden wanted to take away his guns. This came
Citizens of Virginia are mobilizing around the commonwealth to defend their Second Amendment rights after November’s elections ushered in a new era of Democrat control over the state. When the new General Assembly session begins in January, Democrats will have trifecta control of the governorship, state Senate, and state House for the first time since 1994. Members from rural areas will be shut out of leadership roles, as the new top leaders in the General Assembly will only be from urban or suburban districts in Northern Virginia, Hampton Roads, and Richmond. They are planning to introduce bills to ban and
Several weeks ago, we wrote about the very grave bipartisan concerns over “red flag laws” that have sadly been already passed in 17 states. These laws have been described as setting up a process that allows family members or law enforcement to ask a judge for an order that allows temporary confiscation of firearms if a person is deemed to be a threat to themselves or others. When even a state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and 2nd amendment rights organizations like Gun Owners of America and the National Rifle Association (NRA) are putting out similar talking
Walmart used to be a major target for Democrats. They would pillory the retail giant for paying low wages to their employees and wiping out small businesses. Republicans would often rush to Walmart’s defense as a free market success story. Now the tables have turned as Walmart is using its might to push a left-wing political agenda. As the company expands into more urban areas, it is hoping to attract a more left-leaning clientele while gambling that it won’t drive its existing customer base away. Walmart announced this week that it would cease selling handgun ammunition and certain kinds of
Red flag laws or “Extreme Risk Protection Orders” have become an intensive topic of discussion and debate after the 2018 Parkland, Fla., shooting as well as the more recent shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso Texas. These laws have been described as setting up a process that allows family members or law enforcement to ask a judge for an order that allows temporary confiscation of firearms if a person is deemed to be a threat to themselves or others. According to the website “Guns & America” — a collaborative effort of ten different public media outlets — there are
Students from over 200 schools across the country walked out of classes on Wednesday, April 11th in an effort to stand for life and protest the legality of abortion in America. The walkout was originally planned by students from Rocklin High School in Sacramento, California. By the time the protest was actually staged, the official website listed over 191 high schools and 81 colleges as registered to participate alongside Rocklin High. Yet, it appears that the officially registered number may not include all schools that actually ended up participating. A statement released before the event by the president of Students
Over the past few years, Leftist media outlets have published a litany of articles in support of gun control and other “intersectional” policies. Take, for example, these headlines from Salon: “Mass Shooters Part of a Larger Epidemic of White Male Rage” and “It’s Not About Mental Illness: The Big Lie That Always Follows Mass Shootings by White Males.” The Huffington Post even has an entire section devoted to their gun-grabbing policy goals and has given a prominent platform to children who accuse law-abiding NRA members of being uncaring toward shooting victims. Clearly, there is an agenda and a viewpoint at
