Joe Biden lied and was vague, but at least made clear that he wants to ban guns and ammunition magazines that Americans most rely upon for defensive purposes.
The Supreme Court’s problematic decision in District of Columbia v. Heller is being used to attack the right to keep and bear arms.
This could give the Supreme Court the opportunity to correct its errors in District of Columbia v. Heller, which otherwise could be the basis for effectively nullifying the right to keep and bear arms.
The ‘Michigan Militia’ ought to leave Lansing and let more prudent Michiganders figure out what to do about Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s irrational virus lockdown.
Contrary to the Supreme Court’s claim in District of Columbia v. Heller, the term ‘dangerous and unusual weapons’ has historically not been applied to weapons themselves, but to carrying them in an intimidating manner.
It’s no coincidence that most of the current and former Democrat 2020 presidential candidates advocate banning guns. Democrats have been trying to disarm black and other Americans since the Civil War.
Heller preemptively rejected the First Circuit’s notion that the right to keep and bear arms should be balanced against government’s claimed interest in banning guns and magazines.
Sanders says confiscating existing AR-15s from their owners would be unconstitutional, but that prohibiting people from becoming AR-15 owners wouldn’t be.
Thirty years into the national debate over semi-automatic rifles and ammunition magazines designed for defensive purposes, the only thing that has changed is the openness with which Democrats demonstrate their determination to prohibit the private ownership of firearms.
There are no two ways about it. As long as there is a background check system for gun purchases, Democrats will try to transform it into a firearm registry they can use to confiscate guns.
All top 10 Democrat presidential candidates advocate banning the most popular rifles and ammunition magazines in America. Five don’t want to wait for their current owners to die.
Speculations about defeating ‘the NRA’ may titillate the mob, but even if NRA disappeared, there are still 100 million American gun owners, their family members, and their friends.
These are the changes Republicans should make to federal gun laws, once they again hold the White House and both houses of Congress.
It’s not only to prevent a Democrat landslide in 2020. It’s because Democrats will settle for nothing less than gun confiscation.
The habitually dishonest Bill Clinton is mischaracterizing his ‘ban’ to help Democrats impose one with far more severe consequences.
The metric system may be highly overrated, but it has at least one useful application.
The best AR-15s cost less now than the cheapest ones will, if the Democrats’ gun-ban legislation gains steam.
No one should be naïve enough to fall for Democrats’ pretenses that these bills are aimed at reducing crime.
If judges allow the BATFE to override laws passed by Congress, the historically corrupt agency will have a green light to go after semi-automatic firearms next.
Second to the muskets used in our revolutionary and civil wars, the AR-15 may be the most important firearm in American political history.
