UN gun grab enters new and dangerous phase

Those wild and crazy bureaucrats on the banks of the East River are at it again. The United Nations – a bureaucracy so bloated and byzantine that it makes the United States Senate appear efficient by comparison – is poised to begin tossing legal monkey wrenches into international firearms transactions; and indirectly affecting firearms policies in the United States.

District of Columbia: City Council to Consider “License to Carry a Pistol Amendment Act of 2014” Tomorrow

Tomorrow, October 16, at 10:30 a.m., the DC City Council will hold a public hearing to consider Bill 20-930, the “License to Carry a Pistol Amendment Act of 2014.”  Despite sounding like a step in the right direction, this act’s name is deceptive.  Its language is rife with bureaucratic hurdles, including long mandatory training requirements, as well as requiring applicants to undergo the already restrictive and burdensome process of registering a firearm in the District.

Unfortunately last night, a vote on state Senator Rich Alloway’s (R-33) preemption amendment was derailed on the Senate floor.  Attempts will be made again today to amend critical firearms preemption legislation into House Bill 1796, and it is critical that you continue to contact your state Senator IMMEDIATELY and urge him or her to vote for the Alloway amendment.  We are down to the final hours of the 2014 legislative session, and your action now could make the difference in achieving what the NRA has been seeking to pass for the past four years!

Shooting the foot in Biden’s mouth

Joe Biden’s ability to say, unfiltered, whatever thought pops into his head is his charm. He’s everybody’s favorite crazy uncle. Barack Obama didn’t even mind when ol’ Joe once described him as “the first mainstream African-American [presidential candidate] who is articulate and bright and clean.”

I-594 Unenforceable

I am Scott Brennan. I have been with your Sheriff’s Department for over 26 years. As the person who will have to enforce I-594 I have read it very carefully. Here is what it will mean to you. If passed I-594 covers ALL gun SALES and TRANSFERS (more on this later).

It will happen. I pray that it is sooner rather than later.”

Researchers Assail Everytown and FBI Shootings Reports

The “Everytown” anti-gun group’s Analysis of Recent Mass Shootings is “riddled with errors,” and the FBI’s Study of Active Shooter Incidents is “flawed,” according to researchers at the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC).  CPRC is led by noted gun control researcher and former chief economist with the United States Sentencing Commission, John R. Lott, Jr.
