Feinstein Lies about AR-15s

In an op-ed published by the gun grabbers at TIME, Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) wrote, “Guns like the AR-15 aren’t used for hunting, and they’re not viable for home protection. They have only one purpose, and that’s to fire as many rounds as possible, as quickly as possible.” Feinstein followed up with a tweet that 60 percent of Americans support banning them, but a recent study by the National Shooting Sports Foundation confirms that “guns like the AR-15” ARE used for hunting by more than one in four hunters. As for home protection, in March 2018, at least eight separate instances involved an AR-15 being used effectively for home or business defense. In short: Feinstein lied. What’s new?

On Monday, Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) published an anti-gun op-ed in TIME in which they argued, “Guns like the AR-15 aren’t used for hunting and they’re not viable for home protection. They have only one purpose, and that’s to fire as many rounds as possible, as quickly as possible.”

Feinstein reiterated the statement on Twitter, writing, “Guns like the AR-15 aren’t used for hunting and they’re not viable for home protection. They have only one purpose: fire as many rounds as possible, as quickly as possible. 60% of Americans support outlawing these weapons.”

Democrats Introduce Bill Targeting Gun Industry

If you can’t beat ’em, bankrupt them-at least that’s the motivation behind the latest Left wing legislation targeting the Second Amendment. Introduced by House and Senate Democrats on Tuesday, the Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act will allow victims of gun violence to sue firearms and ammunition manufacturers, dealers, and trade groups when a firearm is used unlawfully or in a crime. Lawrence Keane of the National Shooting Sports Foundation told NPR that the legislation is “fundamentally unfair” given that “You would no more blame Ford or General Motors for drunk driving accidents.” Which is true, but reason and truth never stop the Leftist Gestapo.

Here’s more from WRVO…

House and Senate Democrats introduced legislation Tuesday they say will allow victims of gun violence to have their day in court.

The Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act aims to repeal federal protections blocking firearm and ammunition manufacturers, dealers and trade groups from most civil lawsuits when a firearm is used unlawfully or in a crime.

Those protections date to 2005, with the passage of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., one of the bill’s co-sponsors, said since PLCAA became law, state and federal courts have “dismissed numerous cases against the gun industry,” adding that other cases were likely not brought at all.

Biden’s Education Policy: Anti-Gun Indoctrination

Front-runner for the Left’s 2020 presidential nomination Joe Biden has announced his intention to incorporate anti-gun dogma into his “education” plan for this country. Here’s a sample from Biden’s website: “[H]e will secure passage of gun legislation to make our students safer, and he knows he can do it because he’s defeated the National Rifle Association twice before. He’ll begin by again championing legislation to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines-bans he authored in 1994.” Curiously, his policy fails to explain what to do about criminals illegally in possession of firearms. You know, because criminals usually don’t follow laws.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden announced on his campaign website that he intends to wage war on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens as a part of his “education” plan for America.

As noted by Second Amendment columnist AWR Hawkins, Biden said that the National Rifle Association (NRA) must be defeated “in order to make our schools safer,” and he wants to ban semi-automatic firearms.

Biden said that arming school faculty members does not make schools safer and the only solution is to implement more gun policies, which is contrary to what experts around the nation are discovering.

Booker: “More Regulation Over Toy Guns Than Real Ones”

Democratic 2020 presidential contender Cory Booker (NJ) just got called out by major Left wing-friendly media outlets for claiming that toy guns are more regulated than real ones. The Washington Post called the claims by Booker “misleading,” while PolitiFact softened the blow to “mostly false.” Booker, of course, is taking advantage of the Left’s anti-gun useful idiots in his self-serving promotion of 14 new gun controls, up to and including mandatory federal buy-back programs. “Mandatory” being nearly equivalent to gun confiscation in direct violation of the Second Amendment.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Democrat presidential hopeful Cory Booker is drawing heat over his claim that “there is more regulation over toy guns that real ones.”

The Washington Post calls the statement “misleading,” PolitiFact ruled it “mostly false,” and NJ.com simply responded, “No.”

Booker actually made the statement in a May 6 post in Medium, but has since pinned it to the top of his Twitter account, making it one of the first things people see when visiting his Twitter page.

His central gun control plan contains 14 separate controls, gun licensing, TSA PreCheck-style interviews for would-be gun purchasers, universal background checks, and “assault weapons” bans among them.

Dems Endorse Gun Confiscation

Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker (NJ) continues his attempt to out-Left the Left in his efforts to eradicate the Second Amendment. Booker pledged Monday that on his first day in office as President he’ll take executive action “closing dangerous loopholes in gun sales, cracking down on unscrupulous dealers and gun manufacturers, and investing in communities impacted by gun violence.” The Washington Examiner reports that Democrat also-ran Representative Eric Swalwell (CA) retorted that he can do better: “I want to know if Sen. Booker’s assault weapons ban would include the 15 million on the streets now, or just future sales. My plan bans both.” The absurdity really speaks for itself.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Democratic presidential candidates are headed sharply left on gun control as New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and California Rep. Eric Swalwell sought Monday to one-up each other with calls for the government to confiscate firearms.

Booker pledged to take executive action on his first day in office “closing dangerous loopholes in gun sales, cracking down on unscrupulous dealers and gun manufacturers, and investing in communities impacted by gun violence.”

Booker also went far beyond many of the other candidates’ gun control stances in his plan with a call for federal licenses for gun owners. His campaign called the plan the “most sweeping gun violence prevention plan ever put forth by a presidential candidate.”

MSNBC Defends Gun Rights…in Venezuela

In another case of accidental irony by the Left media, MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders argued FOR the Second Amendment during a segment covering the violence at the hands of the Venezuelan government on disarmed protesters. Sanders noted Maduro’s monopoly on violence, adding context for lost MSNBC viewers: “You have to understand in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power, and as long as Nicol·s Maduro controls the military, he controls the country.” Her remarks were made after a viral video showed an armored Venezuelan military vehicle plowing into a crowd of unarmed protesters. For the Left, it’s gun regulations for thee but not for me.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders accidentally made a strong case for the Second Amendment on Tuesday during a segment on the far-left network about the chaos in Venezuela.

The segment came after opposition leader Juan Guaido called on Venezuelan citizens and members of the armed forces to join a movement to overthrow brutal socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro.

Sanders noted that Maduro still maintained control of the military through the whole ordeal, adding: “You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolás Maduro controls the military, he controls the country.”

Kamala Harris Promises Gun Control in First 100 Days

During a CNN town hall Monday night, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) pledged a mandate of universal background checks by fiat if Congress fails to get the job done in her first 100 days in the Oval Office. She also promised to revoke the licenses of any dealers or anyone selling more than five guns a year if they violate the law. Harris’s triple package includes prohibiting “domestic abusers” from purchasing firearms. What’s more important, however, is what she didn’t say, namely, that criminals don’t obey laws. Whether or not her proposals might have any demonstrable reduction in gun violence is debatable, as we only have to ask the people of Chicago about that reality.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Sen. Kamala Harris on Monday night pledged that, if elected president, she will sign a series of executive orders on gun control if Congress fails to pass comprehensive legislation in her first 100 days in the Oval Office.

During a town hall hosted by CNN, Harris said that if a bill from Congress did not make it to her desk, she would unilaterally mandate background checks for customers purchasing a firearm from any dealer who sells more than five guns a year.

Dealers who violate the law, she said, would have their licenses revoked. The other executive orders would prohibit fugitives from purchasing a firearm or weapon, as well as close the loophole that allows some domestic abusers to purchase a firearm if their victim is an unwedded partner.

AOC Prompts Multimillionaire Donor to Back Her Republican Competition

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) just got sworn into office a few months ago, yet her competition is already hoping to show her the door. The Democrat’s most likely Republican opponents so far include a female Egyptian-American journalist and an NYPD cop turned teacher. In addition to more competitive biographies than bartending, they could potentially have a multimillionaire mystery donor. According to Bronx Republican Chairman Mike Rendino, a megabucks donor who is “worth over $200 million” is hell-bent on replacing Ocasio-Cortez in the next round of elections. Though that will be an uphill battle in the heavily Democratic district, it’ll be fun watching her spend Democratic Party cash to defend against slam dunk attacks.

Here’s more from New York Post…

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s surging national profile has inspired a trio of Republican opponents from her home district — along with a multimillionaire mystery donor who could help close the gap in her foes’ long-shot race against her.

Just three months after taking office, the Democratic socialist congresswoman’s challengers include an Egyptian American journalist, who has already tossed her hat in the ring, and an NYPD cop-turned-high-school-civics teacher and conservative talk-radio producer, both of whom are seriously exploring a run against her.

And the fledgling challengers could get help from a wealthy New Yorker committed to backing an Ocasio-Cortez opponent, a GOP big said.

Harris Blames NRA for Endangering America’s Kids

Stuck on anti-Trump repeat, 2020 presidential contender Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) tried to shake things up Thursday by reverting to a tried-and-true topic for the Left: the NRA is endangering America’s kids. “Our children shouldn’t go to school worried they will have to run for their lives from an active shooter. We need leaders who will stand up to the NRA and fight to keep our kids safe from gun violence.” It was swiftly and gloriously rejected by NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch, tweeting: “This is abhorrent. Millions of NRA members are also parents – myself included. You know what keeps kids safe? Prosecuting repeat offenders who have felony gun charges and drive crime. Yet while AG your state was at the bottom of this list. You have zero consistency on safety.” Boom! Game, set, match.

Cuomo Signs Guilty-Until-Proven-Innocent Gun Control

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) just codified the guilty until innocent doctrine in New York with new gun confiscation legislation. The law provides that “family members, school administrators, and law enforcement officials can seek to get guns confiscated from people deemed by courts to be an ‘extreme risk’ to themselves or others.” This so-called “Red Flag Bill” was praised by Nancy Pelosi-who was in attendance-as “leading the way.” The law could serve as a template for Pelosi’s House as a part of a broader Democratic agenda to enact gun control nationally.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) signed gun confiscation into law for New York on Monday.

The law takes effect 180 days from the date of signing.

Buffalo News reports that the law allows that “family members, school administrators and law enforcement officials can seek to get guns confiscated from people deemed by courts to be an ‘extreme risk’ to themselves or others.”
