    Actor and comedian Bill Murray penned an op-ed Thursday comparing the Parkland shooting survivors to the students “who helped end the Vietnam War.” Writing for NBC News THINK, Mr. Murray drew parallels between the Parkland students and the Vietnam War student protesters who spurred the antiwar movement of the 1960s. “I was thinking, looking at the kids in Parkland, Florida who have started these anti-gun protests, that it really was the students that began the end of the Vietnam War,” Mr. Murray wrote. “It was the students who made all the news, and that noise started, and then the movement...

    From the West African country of Mali comes a story of an isolated village where the locals have banded together to fight off terrorists with whatever they have. Mali has been in the midst of a low-key war since 2012 that started off with Tuareg rebels fighting the government and transitioned to an international effort led by a 4,000-strong French military force (the country was a French colony until 1960) squaring off with a trio of wannabe Al-Qaeda jihadist groups in an ongoing asymmetric war pitting Western airpower against increasingly aggressive militants. However, according to the above report from France24,...
  • Oregon Initiative Seeks To Ban Semiautomatic Rifles, Mandate Current Owners To Turn Them Over

    In Oregon, a new initiative from a religious group is taking it a step forward. They want to ban any semiautomatic rifle with a detachable magazine, and that can hold more than ten rounds. They also want current owners of these firearms, law-abiding Americans, to take them out of the state, register them, sell it to a FFL dealer, destroy it, or turn them over. That’s right, folks—full-blown gun confiscation. Right now, the anti-gun church group is collecting signatures. The hope is that they fall short (via KGW8):

    Dick’s Sporting Goods has suffered a surprisingly steep downturn in sales since promising to sell fewer guns, but the problem isn’t the gun sales, Fortune says. Stock tumbled to the lowest in four months after the sports store banned assault-style weapons from its Field & Stream stores and raised the minimum age for a customer to buy a firearm from 18 to 21.... “There’s going to be some pushback and we expected that,” said CEO Edward Stack, in an earnings call with Wall Street analysts, according to CNN. “There are going to be the people who don’t shop us anymore...
  • NBC/WSJ Poll Shocker: Majority Of Americans Say Owning A Gun Increases Safety

    Well, maybe NBC will be shocked to learn that 58% of Americans believe gun ownership increases safety. The rest of will wonder what the other 42% might be thinking: Nearly six-in-10 Americans say that gun ownership increases safety, even as a plurality of respondents support gun-control organizations, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. … In the poll, 58 percent agree with the statement that gun ownership does more to increase safety by allowing law-abiding citizens to protect themselves. By contrast, 38 percent say that gun ownership reduces safety by giving too many people access to firearms, increasing...
  • 3 Data Points That Crush The Gun Control March

    03/22/2018 9:42:04 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 15 replies
    As we head into another energy-draining, media-drenched, wrong-headed protest by angry liberals in this weekend’s highly publicized anti-gun march in Washington, responding to the salvos of misinformation becomes a real challenge. Those who understand and appreciate the Second Amendment and the Constitution — which does not include large numbers of protesters — should be armed with a few basic facts that really do make the entire anti-gun histrionics case go ker-splat! These are important because whether it is the school kids or the activists or the media, the people driving this narrative are rarely if ever confronted with contextual facts....

    Sen. Doug Jones (D.), Alabama's new addition to the halls of Congress, used his maiden speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate to call for unity in the gun control debate, even while he attacked the National Rifle Association's "extreme positions" and called for sweeping gun control measures. Jones, who won a special election in December to fill the seat vacated when Jeff Sessions accepted his post as attorney general, began the speech on Wednesday by denouncing the partisan atmosphere of Washington, D.C. Jones, having denounced how partisanship and gridlock have replaced compromise and consensus, then segued into addressing...

    A California father is boiling mad, demanding to know who authorized 12-year-old children to walk out of their middle-school classes for an anti-gun protest last week. The father, identified as John Gunn, videotaped his confrontation with Anacapa Middle School Principal Barbara Boggio, with the Ventura Unified School District in Ventura, California. He posted the video on Facebook after young kids left class last Wednesday for the National School Walkout. Gunn said the school never told him that the students would be allowed to leave class. “I want to know who authorized these kids to go out and leave the class...

    For too many years, in too many places, our country has seen acts of gun violence that have resulted in heartbreaking losses. We are all too familiar with them and there is no need to recount them here. Over the same amount of time, we have waited for our grief to turn into action and see our nation adopt common-sense measures that would help prevent firearms from getting into the wrong hands. That action has sadly never come and as the weeks pass after the most recent mass shooting, it appears we are stuck in the same cycle of tragedy...

    Congressional Republicans are jeopardizing the Second Amendment rights of 4.2 million senior citizens. At the same time, they have voted to funnel tens of millions of dollars to gun control organizations and support other actions that Democrats will love. All of this is wrapped up in the giant $1.3 trillion spending bill that the House of Representatives approved Thursday on a 256-167 vote and sent to the Senate. Just before President Obama left office, his administration finalized new regulations banning Social Security recipients from buying a gun if they have trouble managing their finances. About 10 percent of all people...

    Citigroup Inc. (C.N) added restrictions on firearms sales for new retail-sector clients, the Wall Street bank said on Thursday, the strongest move to date by a major U.S. lender following last month’s high school shooting in Florida. In an e-mailed statement, Citi said it will require those clients only sell firearms to customers who have passed a background check, restrict sales of firearms for people under 21 years of age, and not sell so-called “bump stocks” or high-capacity magazines. The bank’s new rules come weeks after a shooting at a Florida high school that killed 17 people, the second-deadliest shooting...

    A meeting between Parkland students and anti-gun activists mobilizing for the highly anticipated March For Our Lives event in Washington, D.C. this weekend was captured on hidden audio Tuesday evening in Broward County, Florida and provided exclusively to DANGEROUS. The meeting, which was described as a non-partisan briefing for students, parents, and staff members from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who are attending the #MarchForOurLives, was quickly exposed as being hijacked by Democratic Party top brass and fraught with extreme anti-conservative bias, misappropriation of school resources, and heavy-handed coaching for students when dealing with the media. Held at the Marriott...

    There have been numerous reports of students being bullied, pushed to participate in anti-Second Amendment protests they did not believe in, and of being punished for speaking out.  The Second Amendment Foundation today announced a project to help students who have been harassed, intimidated or bullied for resisting peer pressure to join the wave of protests against guns and the right to keep and bear arms. "A student's First Amendment rights should not be violated because they support the Second Amendment," said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. "There have been several reports over the past...

    When political activists are attempting to pass a long-term agenda with emotion and fear, they cannot allow dissent. The emotional narrative they are pushing is fragile. Dissent causes people to think. Thinking causes the narrative to collapse. Andy Dalsin, alone and courageous high school student, stood up to the organized political agenda of the left. He “spoke truth to power”. He was not allowed to protest with others of his school, but was driven off by the school principal, Lonnie Seifert. From, video at link: Dalsin said principal Lonnie Seifert told him to give up a sign that...

    It took five weeks for Kyle Kashuv, the conservative Parkland shooting survivor, to be granted an interview with CNN, despite several of his classmates getting plenty of airtime. Apparently, it has to do with one of his retweets. Kashuv's friend called to tell him the network had disinvited him. The tweet that got him booted was one composed by @ClayTravis, who called Brooke Baldwin a "fake news hypocrite." It seems Kashuv is taking the news in stride.

    Two students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have been arrested today for bringing weapons to school. A third student is being evaluated for making online threats. The first student, 18-year-old Jordan Salter, was arrested after pulling a two-inch black knife from her bra after a disagreement with another student took place, the Sun Sentinel reported. The second student, Gavin Stricker, 17, allegedly brandished a knife on the school bus earlier in the day. On top of everything else, a Broward County deputy was placed on administrative leave for allegedly sleeping on the job.

    I received an email from my Google/YouTube rep at 9:30pm tonight. He requested an emergency meeting tomorrow to discuss YouTube's new policies regarding firearms content. This is really bad. Please read this carefully and a couple of times, and let it sink in. 1/3rd of my videos or more will need to be removed. If you don't have them removed in 30 days, your channel will be deleted for policy violations. I wish this were a joke. It's not. I feel horrible for reloading channels or NFA channels. Showing how to make ammo or even showing the installation of a...

    As about 100 of the 1,700-plus students at my high school walked out in protest on March 14 (for a moment, I thought it was merely an overzealous Pi Day party), I mentioned to a colleague that the whole episode was little more than a ploy to elect more Democrats. I found out a short while later that others thought exactly the same. As most of us watching well knew, several reports have revealed that the student walkouts across the U.S. last Wednesday were far from "organic." Sadly, liberal organizations across the U.S. have seized on the wicked act that...
