Federal judge: Ban on gun sales unconstitutional

A federal judge has potentially opened a new market to gun dealers after ruling as unconstitutional Chicago ordinances that aim to reduce gun violence by banning their sale within the city’s limits.

Michelle Malkin: Anti-Gun NFL: National Frauds’ League

The National Football League’s hypocrisy and selective decency standards reek like a post-game locker room. On the one hand, the organization refuses to run a firearms manufacturer’s self-defense Super Bowl ad under the guise of neutrality and taste. Yet, the professional football conglomerate routinely revels in raunchiness, gratuitous physical violence and anti-gun screeds. Welcome to […] Continue reading →

New allegation made against Zimmerman in court

George Zimmerman’s girlfriend said he tried to choke her about a week ago during an altercation that was not initially reported to police, a prosecutor told a judge Tuesday during Zimmerman’s first court appearance on domestic violence-related charges.

Senate Wins Big Victory for 2nd Amendment

Katie Kieffer, Tired of depressing news?

Bob Barr: The legal concept of standing one’s ground against deadly force has been a part of American culture since our founding as a nation; and has been an explicit component of our country’s law for more than 100 years. An individual’s right to possess a firearm to defend one’s self is guaranteed unequivocally in […] Continue reading →

Stand Your Ground Laws Under Attack

Never underestimate the ability of liberals to attempt to repeal or propose a law by using a tragic event that wouldn’t have even be prevented if their proposed laws or repeal were in place. Following the Sand Hook tragedy, anti-gun Democrats proposed all forms of new gun legislation which they were forced to admit wouldn’t […] Continue reading →

Eric Holder vs. Toilet Paper Holder

Toilet paper holders. Cup holders. Cigar Holders. Various holders do an excellent job of “holding.” Eric Holder is a U.S. attorney general who is ironically failing to live up to his name and uphold the law.   Most recently, Holder disparaged 92 years of U.S. Supreme Court precedent regarding so-called “stand your ground” laws. Holder […] Continue reading →

Birth of a Racist

Sally Zelikovsky When I awoke this morning and looked at myself in the mirror, I realized that I had undergone a fundamental transformation — a  Kafkaesque metamorphosis.  I was no longer myself.  I had become…a racist. I didn’t do it to myself.  I’ve always been sensitive to race.  I don’t support racism or racists.  I’ve […] Continue reading →

Should We Be Optimistic or Pessimistic about the Future of the Second Amendment?

Fifty years from now (assuming we haven’t suffered a Greek-style fiscal collapse), will we still enjoy our constitutional freedom of private gun ownership? Sometimes I’m pessimistic about what will happen because politically correct educators are brainwashing our kids. We’ve even gotten to the point where a deaf kid can’t use sign language if his fingers somehow resemble […] Continue reading →
