Georgia Democrats Back ‘Assault Weapon’ Confiscation Bill

by Awr Hawkins.    On January 11, Democrats in Georgia’s state house introduced a bill that bans “assault weapons” and opens the door for the “seizure” of such weapons, along with accessories like “high capacity” magazines. According to the text of HB 731, the bill focuses on ” dangerous instrumentalities and practices” by prohibiting the    ... MORE

The Federal Government's Illegal Registry Of Gun Owners

by Joshua Krause.     I remember after the Sandy Hook shooting, when states like New York and Connecticut passed laws that would force their gun owning residents to register some of their firearms. At the time I thought that was a little absurd. Not knowing any better, I just assumed that the government already knew exactly what kinds of firearms  ... MORE

Jacob Davidson: A Criminologist’s Case Against Gun Control

A law professor explains why he is skeptical.   In the wake of the recent mass shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood that claimed three lives, President Barack Obama called the incidents of gun violence in America “not normal.” “Enough is enough,” Obama said. According to one count, there have been 351 mass shootings in the United     ... MORE

David Kopel: The Costs And Consequences Of Gun Control

Weighing good and harm.   Today the Cato Institute published my monograph “The Costs and Consequences of Gun Control.” The policy analysis examines several gun control proposals which have been promoted by the Obama administration and the gun control lobby: bans on so-called assault weapons; bans on standard magazines; confiscation;   ...

New York's Plot to Gut the Second Amendment

by Michael Filozof.     On Dec. 9, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit will hear oral arguments in the case of Nojay v. Cuomo.  At stake is nothing less than whether the Second Amendment grants substantive gun rights to American citizens, or is meaningless rhetoric that allows the government total control over what firearms    ...

NY Law Allows Police To Seize Guns Without A Warrant

by Jason Howerton.         The police state marches on. New York’s hastily-passed gun control law “mandates that law enforcement personnel seize, without a warrant, probable cause or hearing” some firearms, a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in New York’s Eastern District alleges. The lawsuit was filed in March by the La Reddola,         ... MORE

Science And Reason Vs. Political Correctness

by Victor Davis Hanson.    President Obama entered office promising to restore the sanctity of science. Instead, a fresh war against science, statistics and reason is being waged on behalf of politically correct politics. After the Sandy Hook tragedy, the president attempted to convert national outrage into new gun-control legislation.    ... MORE

Larry Elder: Political Correctness In A Gun-Free Zone

A deadly combination.           Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., after another mass shooting, predictably wasted no time in demanding still more gun control legislation. This week, a killer with a valid ID entered the Washington Navy Yard in southeast D.C., a military facility where 16,000 people -- mostly civilians -- work. He killed 12 people     ... MORE

Forbes Op-Ed: Feinstein Shoots-Off Mouth, Hits Foot

Gun control misses the mark.  Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) engaged in a shoot-out over the constitutionality of her proposed Senate bill to ban “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” magazines. Although it passed the Senate Judiciary Committee on a party-line 10-8 vote, it has virtually no chance of passing the    ... MORE

Rand Paul And Ted Cruz Threaten Filibuster On Guns

by Jonathan Allen.     Sens. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are threatening to filibuster gun-control legislation, according to a letter they plan to hand-deliver to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s office on Tuesday. “We will oppose the motion to proceed to any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any additional gun restrictions,”      ...

Paul Brown: The Semantics Of Gun Control

Same weapons can be for assault or defense.      Since the SenateJudiciary Committee passed Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s “assault weapons” ban March 14, a fitting question might be, what is an “assault weapon”? A term that originated in the 1980s, it was popularized after the original “assault weapons” ban in 1994. “Assault weapon” is now ls that would be more accurately described as “defense weapons.”     ...

Rick Moran: Gun Control Efforts Are Dying In Congress

Not with a bang, but with a whimper.      A sure sign that nothing much will happen on the gun control front is that President Obama has barely lifted a finger to personally lobby lawmakers to pass his agenda. And he certainly hasn't been anywhere near the negotiations that ended up bringing 4 bills to the Senate Judiciary Committee - three of which ... MORE

Rick Moran: Gabby Gifford's Husband Buys An AR-15

The nauseating hypocrisy of this guy is incredible.      When caught red-handed by Breitbart, who tracked down a tip that Mark Kelly, former Rep. Gifford's husband purchased an "assault weapon," here's what the gun control advocate put on his Facebook page: I just had a background check a few days ago when I went to my local gun     ... MORE

What Does DOJ REALLY Think About Gun Control?

by Melancton Smith.   According to a DOJ memo obtained by the NRA, Washington really knows that assault weapons are infrequently used in crimes and that banning high capacity magazines really will not change anything. These are just drums beat by the administration to get the public in a frenzy over the “epidemic” of gun violence. So what do they    ... MORE
