Leftist’s hate guns. There’s nothing that’s more of a threat to their agenda than a free-thinking, gun-toting citizen. As such, they’ve tried to make guns so taboo that merely owning one is considered terrible and expensive.

independence day

There are some pretty ridiculous “studies” out there funded by our tax dollars, but the results of one particular Harvard study are well worth the cost, in my opinion.

The findings? That the 4th of July – Independence Day – makes people more likely to rally their support behind the GOP.

The study, published back in 2011, was titled “Shaping the nation: The Effect of Forth of July on Political Preferences and Behavior in the United States” and found that

Days without rain on Fourth of July in childhood shift adult views and voting in favor of the Republicans and increase turnout in presidential elections. The effects we estimate are highly persistent throughout life and originate in early age.

The “days without rain” part is referencing the fact that the holiday is less likely to be celebrated on a rainy day. The study concluded:

“One Fourth of July without rain before age 18 increases the likelihood of identifying as a Republican at age 40 by 2 percent, the share of people voting for the Republican candidate at age 40 by 4 percent, and the share of people turning out to vote at age 40 by 0.9 percent.”

By contrast, the study found that there’s no evidence that children attending July 4th celebrating makes them more likely to vote Democrat in the future.

AR-15

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You know how we’re not supposed to judge all Muslims by the act of extremists? When it comes to guns, liberals toss that standard right out the door.

In a country with over five million AR-15 owners, you’d think we’d all be dead if the only people who owned it were psychopaths. But according to one liberal Senator, that’s the case.

Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen said certain types of firearms like the AR-15 are the kind of guns that should be banned. She added that people trying to purchase the weapon — which is popular among American gun owners — are “buying it do bad things.”

“The fact is, the AR-15, the gun that (Omar) Mateen used, that’s a weapon of war; it’s advertised as being able do technologically advances in killing people that previous weapons have been unable to do and somebody who is buying that kind of a weapon isn’t buying it for target shooting,” she said. “They’re not buying it to go out and hunt deer. You don’t need an AK-47 or an AR-15 to hunt deer. They’re buying it to do bad things and we need to recognize that and address it.”

Yes, some people really are this crazy. Not to be a total bore, but let’s look just how many people are being killed by these scary assault weapons each year.

https://beingclassicallyliberal.liberty.me/wp-content/uploads/sites/843/2014/05/Untitled.png

And by the way, that statistic is deaths for all rifles. It’s even smaller for assault rifles.

So why are liberals going after firearms that literally kill less people than die falling out of bed each year? Because they’re “scary” to the non-gun owner, and therefore the easiest to push for stricter gun control on.

We know gun-free zones don’t work because they only stop law-abiding citizens from being able to protect themselves.

You know who doesn’t believe in “Gun-Free Zones“? This cartoon explains.

gun-free-zones
Here’s more from The Daily Signal on the problem with “Gun-Free Zones”:

An analysis of mass shootings in the United States since the year 2002 shows that gun-wielding mass killers are more likely to strike where the Second Amendment right to bear arms has been supplanted by “gun-free zone” ordinances, be they federal, local, or specified by the owner of the property.

The Stanford University Libraries’ dataset of mass shootings (“Stanford Mass Shootings in America, courtesy of the Stanford Geospatial Center and Stanford Libraries”) was analyzed for mass shootings over the past 14 years.

So there you have it. There’s all the proof you need that “gun-free zones” don’t work. Now, someone tell the Democrats!

Dash2

Fox News host Stacey Dash says she was sexually assaulted while her baby son Austin, her child from another relationship, slept in a nearby bassinet.

Dash has a new book out where she revealed she had moved in with a friend after a break-up with her boyfriend but he found her, barging into the home and assaulting her violently, while she tried to fight back. She said she got away from him, ran upstairs and got her .22 revolver.

“And so I lifted the gun up to his head and pulled the trigger,” she writes. “It was a tough shot to make, since he was coming up and I was going down. My depth perception was off, and I was so disoriented by fear and anger that I missed. But by this time, I was committed. I wanted to kill him. I pulled the trigger two more times, missing him each time. However, he got the message loud and clear.”

Dash is a 2nd Amendment advocate and she is a NRA card-carrying member.

From Washington Times:

Actress and Fox News contributor Stacey Dash revealed Wednesday that a gun saved her life nearly 25 years ago when she was raped by an ex-boyfriend.

Ms. Dash told People magazine that she endured a physically abusive relationship with a man for years.

“I didn’t feel like I was a person,” the 49-year-old said. “I was so starving for love, that I held on. Some of the time he took care of me, and I got [beaten up] in order to have those moments.”

Ms. Dash’s ex-boyfriend continued to stalk her after their break up, even as she became pregnant with another man’s child, People reported.

She said her son Austin, now 25, was asleep in his crib right next to her as she was raped by her abuser.

“He had a gun to my head and I thought, ‘My son is in that crib right there,’ ” Ms. Dash said. “[I thought], ‘No you are not going to do this. My son’s life was more important to me than my own.’”

When her attacker came back, Ms. Dash said she picked up a gun and fired several shots at him but missed.

“I wanted to kill him,” Ms. Dash said, “but it scared him away.”

She said it was that moment that solidified her belief in the right to self-defense.

“A gun saved my life,” she said. “That’s why my Second Amendment right will not be taken away from me.”

Women should be the primary advocates of gun ownership. Firearms are a force equalizer which helps prevent violent attacks on women. The fact that so many American women are anti-gun is simply baffling. It’s unfortunate what happened to her, but I’m glad she was able to defend herself from the man who attacked her.

I have always liked Stacey. She is not afraid to speak her mind and stays true to her morals. I admire her strength. She needs to become an adviser of some sort for our loser government. We have become the scariest country in our history.

Over the weekend, Donald Trump blasted Hillary Clinton on her gun-grabbing ideology. He came right out and said, “Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the 2nd Amendment.” He said “Hillary Clinton wants to take your guns away,” and “the bullets away.”

She wants strict gun-control laws, and she wants gun manufacturers to be held liable for the criminal acts committed by people who purchase guns! She knows that is an indirect way of abolishing the 2nd Amendment because it would be the end of the guns being made in America.

Now, she will say, “Oh I don’t want to abolish the 2nd Amendment.” She not honest enough to come out and say she wants to get rid of guns. But that is what she and the radical Left are all about.

This is a winning issue for Donald Trump. He needs to hammer her on the 2nd Amendment every day and every chance he gets. Millions of women are now buying firearms for protection, and this is how he can drive a wedge between Hillary and the votes of women.

He also made the important point that if Hillary is elected, she will pack the Supreme Court with leftist judges “who will destroy our nation.”

Here is Hillary talking about the 2nd amendment:

Can anyone imagine the blood bath there would be if the government tried to take the people’s guns? Just remember, every country that has been taken over by a dictatorship was first disarmed. And right now the biggest terrorist threat in this country is the federal government.

Barack Obama and Hillary are after our guns, but it’s not really about guns it is about control. Once again, they want to charge the gun manufacturer, the gun store, the bullet manufacture, etc., with the crime a THUG commits with an illegal gun. Listen to their speeches; it is true. If Hillary gets in office we will lose our right to bear arms; she will put people on the Supreme Court that are anti-gun, and they will create laws preventing us from bearing arms. Listen to their speeches; you don’t have to believe me. JUST LISTEN!

Gun Tax

Democrat politicians have concocted a new scheme to keep perfectly legal guns out of the hands of law-abiding American citizens. What’s their plan? If they can’t repeal the Second Amendment outright, they’ll simply tax guns into oblivion.

Ralph DLG Torres, Governor of The Northern Mariana Islands – a U.S. territory, has passed a provision that assesses a $1,000 tax on the sale of every gun.

From a local paper:

The administration of Gov. Ralph DLG Torres defended the CNMI’s new gun control laws on Friday as a law that could be “a role model” for other U.S. states and jurisdictions facing seemingly uncontrolled and continued gun violence.

The administration was responding to queries regarding its position on recent reports that the a legal challenge to the new law, Public law 19-42, was likely, particularly over a provision that assesses a $1,000 excise tax on pistols.

While the preposterous government overreach seems like a joke to many us, some politicians see a model they hope will work in their home districts. Think it sounds too outrageous to be true? Consider that the idea isn’t anything new. Gun enthusiasts have been fighting unconstitutional infringements on firearm ownership for decades.

I researched a bit and found the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the amendment, the Gun Control Act of 1968, made some guns so expensive that most simply couldn’t afford them. Silencers, short-barreled rifles, short-barreled shotguns, and machine guns have all been taxed to the point that most Americans assume the guns are now illegal.

Gun Tax

Very few Americans can point to the Northern Mariana Islands on a map. Even fewer had ever heard of Public law 19-42, part of which contains the mandate that imposes the $1,000 tax on each gun purchase. But Gov. Torres believes his approach to gun control can serve as a model for other states who see guns, and not the illegal and felonious intentions of individuals, as the evil that must be addressed.

Could this nefarious tax take root in the American heartland? Maybe you’ve heard we have an election coming up. One of the frontrunners in this year’s presidential race likes the idea of the tax.

Back in 1993, Hillary Clinton proposed a 25% tax on all firearm sales. While her vision wasn’t adopted, she’s never backed away from her position.

If the Mariana tax survives in court, it will serve as an inspiration and model for legislative efforts much closer to home.

Nobody ever said thugs were the smartest bunch in the room. Well, one thing couldn’t even read to save his own life, or at least get out of the trouble he was looking for.

“We don’t dial 911,” says the sign above the front door. Below that is a metal sculpture of a revolver.

One Indiana thug decided to press his luck by breaking in anyway while carrying a walkie-talkie and several sets of zip ties.

Just after noon, a mother heard somebody breaking into the baby’s room and armed herself with a handgun.

Police say the intruder fired first, but the mom fired more accurately, with multiple rounds striking him and putting him out of commission.

From Daily Mail:

The incident happened early Thursday afternoon at an Indianapolis home, which has a sign hanging out front that reads ‘We don’t dial 911’ and features a decorative gun hanging below.

When the mother heard the burglar coming through the window, she took out her pistol and a shootout ensued, with the intruder being hit multiple times, according to FOX 59.

‘He [burglar] broke in through the baby’s window, okay, and when he was coming out the door, my sister was coming out her bedroom door, he aimed and shot at her first and then she shot him,’ Eddie Ballard, the woman’s brother, told the station.

The intruder, who authorities said was also carrying zip ties and a walkie-talkie, was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. It is not known what charges he might be facing.

The mother and baby were not harmed during the incident.

‘I think he definitely picked the wrong house,’ Edsel Ballard told the station.

 

It looks to me like the bugler, rapist, thief, whatever you want to call him could not read. He should have paid more attention in school. My favorite warning sign is, “Want to meet Jesus? Trespass here and I’ll give you the opportunity.”

The number of background checks ran for gun purchases during the month of February has been released and gun grabbers, along with the current administration, is likely not too happy about it.

According to FBI data, over 2.6 million background checks were made for firearms purchases in February, making it the ninth month in a row that gun sales have set a record.

We all know why this is happening don’t we, Americans are afraid Barack Obama is going to write some executive order that’s going to target confiscating firearms or stop gun owners’ ability to buy them.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

This February’s numbers bested the previous record, set in 2013, by more than 300,000 checks. In the first two months of 2016, there were 5,158,876 checks run through the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System. That’s more than half the 10,036,933 checks run in all of 2006, just a decade ago.

The continuing sales spike comes in the wake of President Obama’s efforts to impose new forms of gun control through a number of executive actions. The most consequential of those actions was touted by the administration as a plan to require even somebody who sold merely one firearm to obtain a Federal Firearms License was widely reported by the press, though the official guidance later issued by the ATF was at odds with what administration officials had said.

Further executive action from Democrats in Virginia received a lot of attention at the national level when the attorney general announced a plan to unilaterally eliminate the state’s gun carry agreements with most other states. The backlash resulted in a deal to expand Virginia’s gun carry recognition rather than curtail it. That deal was signed into law at the end of February.

mass-shootings-gun-laws

Of course, background check numbers don’t tell the whole story. One background check could mean multiple firearms were purchased. Also, in numerous states, millions of concealed carry permit holders are exempt from background checks, so their purchases are not reflected here.

A couple of months ago, Obama’s press secretary Josh Earnest was asked what the President thinks about the increase in gun sales. Earnest never missed a beat, and he said: “the President thinks it’s tragedy.”

All the talk, all of the posturing, and all the lying that we expect from Obama was exposed with that one quote. Keep in mind that the question from the press related ONLY to legally purchased firearms, and nothing else… So Obama admitted, through his press secretary, that Americans exercising their 2nd Amendment right is a “tragedy.”

Gun sales skyrocketing during this administration, or God forbid a Clinton administration, is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
