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

The Key Is Not Regulation, But Individual Rights

Michael B. Kitz-Miller on guns.   I have been going back and forth regarding the issue of gun control, until recently. In the service, I qualified as expert with numerous weapons, including the M-1, M-14 and M-16 which we field tested, so I have some knowledge of weapons and their use. The assault weapon in question for government control and used at  ... MORE

Mark Almonte: Why Do Civilians Need Assault Weapons?

Could you visualize yourself needing one?   The two strongest reasons for civilians to own assault weapons are self-defense and defense against tyranny. One self-defense situation that comes to mind is the L.A. riots.  Who can forget the nightly news's live footage of thugs hurling rocks at passing cars, buildings on fire, and looters smashing storefront   ...

Walter E Williams: Cultural Deviancy, Not Guns

A problem of standards.    There's a story told about a Paris chief of police who was called to a department store to stop a burglary in progress. Upon his arrival, he reconnoitered the situation and ordered his men to surround the entrances of the building next door. When questioned about his actions, he replied that he didn't have enough men to cover  ... MORE

All You Need To Know About "Assault Rifles"

Scare terms and reality.  There are many articles on the internet where people can learn the origins of the term “assault rifle”, so I won’t go into that here. Nor will I get into the topic of gun control effectiveness. Larry Correia has done such a good job here that anything I add would be redundant. “You keep using that word. I don’t think it means what   ... MORE

Jacob Sullum: What's An Assault Weapon?

CNN, President Obama and many others don't know. Last week Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced a new, supposedly improved version of the federal "assault weapon" ban that expired in 2004. But like that earlier law, which the California Democrat also sponsored, Feinstein's bill prohibits the manufacture and sale of guns based on characteristics that   ... MORE

Emily Miller: The Cop-Killer Bullet Myth

Going after ammunition to get your guns. Give the administration credit for its creativity. The theatrical show President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. are putting on in their effort to foist gun control on the public disguises a more subtle push to disarm America in the name of protecting cops. On Monday, Mr. Obama invited police    ...

Washington State Prepares Gun Control Nullification Bill

by Mikael Thalen.     As the call for more gun control continues, governors, lawmakers, sheriffs, and citizens across the country are taking a stand. After the tragic Sandy Hook shooting, gun control advocates immediately jumped on the opportunity to dust off old gun control legislation, specifically advocating for a ban on "assault weapons." ...

A Fisher: 6 Unbelievably Dumb Congressional Hearings

Sex, violence and satan.      In the wake of last December's school shooting, Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-West Virginia) has proposed yet another congressional study on violent video games (he's joined in his effort by Nebraska Republican Sen. Mike Johanns). Such studies are typically accompanied by hearings where members of the World's Greatest   ... MORE

Sales Of Guns Soar In U.S. As Tougher Laws Threatened

Citizens react as government plots against them. As Washington focuses on what Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. will propose next week to curb gun violence, gun and ammunition sales are spiking in the rest of the country as people rush to expand their arsenals in advance of any restrictions that might be imposed. People were crowded five deep ...

The Need For Semi-Automatic "Assault" Weapons

By Katie Pavlich.    By now, we’ve heard the argument about semi- automatic "assault" rifles: nobody needs one. We’ve heard the only reason why someone would obtain this kind of weapon is so they can kill people, which is far from the truth. We’ve also heard the argument from both the Left and the Right that a pistol is how someone protects their    ... MORE
