NH based AP Reporter can’t help herself on gun control

by Skip December 14, 2016

“Gun rights Repealing the licensing requirement to carry a concealed gun has a strong change of passing the Legislature. Unlike Hassan, Sununu is likely to sign it.

Data Point – Americans, more and more, hate the idea of “assault weapon” bans

by Skip October 27, 2016

First, let me say again that there is no such there as an “assault weapon” – it’s a made up term used for political purposes by the Left (aka, the Civilian Disarmament clique) simply to call semi-automatic rifles (frankly, I like the phrase “modern muskets” as being more in line of what they are).  No […]

Here’s someone that would be perfectly fine in confiscating all guns…

by Skip October 1, 2016

“If I could, I would take all the guns in America, put them on big barges and go dump them in the ocean.  Nobody would have a gun. Not police, not security, not anybody. We should eliminate all of them. They are a scourge of this country and no one should have one as far […]

Er, the Progressives haven’t ever shut up about this “conversation”

by Skip August 30, 2016

WGN reports that just last weekend 67 Chicagoans were shot, 11 died from their wounds. Apparently, a military-aged American is safer in uniform in Iraq, Libya or Afghanistan fighting ISIS than living in inner-city America. New York, Chicago and Los Angeles also have the strictest gun control in the country reinforcing the old saw that […]

by Skip July 31, 2016

I always hear gun control proponents ask, “Why won’t the pro-gunners compromise? Why won’t they give into something?” Are you kidding? Do you have any idea how long it takes to get a suppresser for my gun, so that if God forbid there’s ever a home invasion and I have to shoot the intruder I […]

Project Veritas has figured out how Dems will really ban guns

by Skip July 26, 2016

Just ask them – and our friend James O’Keefe did just that. The key to the Democrat strategy?  Like always during a campaign – they won’t be truthful about what they really want to do.  Obfuscate.  Equivocate. Shade it.  Doubletalk it. Distract it.  Skew.  Change the language.  Or simple, outright lie. (H/T: The Truth About […]

by Skip June 26, 2016

From the Union Leader: Kuster said Congress must act to expand background checks for gun sales at shows and online, and if a suspected terrorist is considered too dangerous to fly, they should not be able to buy a gun. No, it is NOT that “they should not be able to buy a gun” – […]

All we’ve heard from the MSM (and most of them wouldn’t know which end to point down range) is AR-15!
