Hillary’s Lip Service To The Second

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

“I respect the Second Amendment.” Hillary Clinton actually spoke those words in 2008—not coincidentally, the year of her first presidential campaign. Now that she has officially entered the 2016 presidential race, let’s not forget where she actually stands on guns. Hillary has vocally supported:  

  • a national gun registry;
  • a smart gun mandate;
  • a modern sporting rifle ban;
  • all guns stored separately from ammunition;
  • gun ownership for only a select group.

Let’s not give her the opportunity to show her “respect” for the Second, the First or any other amendment. As NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre warned at the NRA Annual Meetings—our U.S. Constitution, in her hands, would be erased from the pages for history.


Under Attack In Oregon

Several other pieces of anti-gun legislation are also winding their way through Oregon’s upper House. SB 945, SB 525 and SB 913 also impose stiff penalties or otherwise burden ownership. And all three measures also lack a single bipartisan sponsor. 


Pro-Gun Blogger Exacts Retractions From NY Times, MSNBC

He also exposed as a lie the claim by Bloomberg’s anti-gun group Moms Demand Action that they were leading a protest by some 400 people in Nashville against the NRA. As Owens’ bird’s-eye-view photo of the protest showed, Everytown had succeeded in assembling just a fraction of the protesters it had claimed.


“Gun-Free Zones” Fail Again

In 2013 North Carolina passed a law allowing right-to-carry permit holders to store firearms in locked vehicles in campus parking lots—a good law indeed. But it’s unlikely that an onlooker could have made it down several flights of stairs, out to the parking lot to retrieve his or her legal firearm, and back up the stairs in time to have prevented this tragedy.


Measure Targets Race Question For Gun Purchases

The Freedom from Intrusive Regulatory Enforcement of Arbitrary Registration Mandates (FIREARM) Act, introduced by Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., and Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, would delete the question on race, which was added to the form in 2012.

“Forcing citizens who are lawfully purchasing guns to disclose race and ethnicity with the threat of federal prosecution if they fail to disclose is completely unnecessary,” Rep. Poe said in a statement. “Bottom line, if a law-abiding citizen is lawfully purchasing firearms, race and ethnicity are irrelevant.”


Armed Defense Against Road Rage Assailant

When the angry man came out of his car holding a firearm, Catlett and his son wrestled him to the ground and disarmed him. Instead of leaving, the man retrieved a hammer from the vehicle and charged them. Catlett shot the assailant, who drove away in his car and was later found dead. While the armed citizen regrets the choice he was forced to make, it’s fortunate that he and his son are both unharmed.


Wal-Mart Win For Gun Owners

The court is set to issue a full opinion with its reasoning at a later date, according to the order signed by Judge Thomas L. Ambro. The win by Wal-Mart is a big victory for gun owners, as the retail giant is a go-to location for many seeking to purchase firearms.
