“Despite the evidence showing that [anti-gunners’] number-one legislative priority doesn’t work, they’re still pushing it. Why? Because it polls well. They’re looking for a public-relations victory, not a public-safety victory.” —Cam Edwards RELATED VIDEOS: School Safety Should Be Based on Facts, Not Politics The Queen of Gun Control Re-Introduces New Flavor of “Assault Weapons” Ban […]

Florida Alert! Where Do Anti-Gun Legislators Get this Stuff?

Some newly elected anti-gun legislators can’t seem to resist the media spotlight. Like moths to a flame, some swoop in with anti-gun rants and dishonest, deceitful statements.   Most recently two newly elected anti-gun legislators issued false statements to media about guns. Rep.

Background Checks: No Impact on Criminals

We have seen a generation of gun-grabbers rise and fall. The new generation of gun-grabbers are pushing for the same tired and baseless policies that won’t so much as inconvenience criminals.

Getting Priorities Straight: House Democrats and the Public

Anti-gun organizations and their sycophants would have you believe that the 2018 midterm elections were a referendum on gun rights. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi “vows to fight” for “bipartisan, common sense” gun control and announced gun control “will be a priority” even before she had secured the Speaker’s gavel. The eagerness to curtail Constitutional rights isn’t […]
