White Gun Owners, the Left Hates You

Law-abiding, white gun owners are the new Nazis.

If you are a white, law-abiding gun owner, never forget: the left hates you.

If you are a gun-wielding jihadist, leftists will find every excuse to turn a blind eye to your evil and direct their outrage toward white, law-abiding defenders of the Second Amendment. If you are a gun-wielding, non-white illegal alien like the multiple-felony murderer of San Francisco’s Kate Steinle, the left will shield you in a sanctuary city and blame Steinle for being white, pretty, and causing trouble for you by getting in the way of your bullet. If you are part of a gun-wielding black mob torturing and massacring white farm-owning families in South Africa, the left will wag its finger at the families themselves and blame your savagery on their colonialist oppression. The left hates you.

Death threats force Florida’s chief NRA lobbyist to miss gun control hearing

A powerful lobbyist for the National Rifle Association in Florida says she was forced to skip a gun control hearing after receiving a deluge of death threats.

Marion Hammer, who is a well known and successful gun rights advocate in the state, was unable to attend a hearing with the Leon County Commission, saying that several issues — she would have been unable to bring her gun inside the legislative chamber, security at the event was minimal, and hundreds of citizens were expected to pack into the event — weighed on her decision.

They’re Coming For Them: One-Third Of Democrats Want To Repeal Second Amendment

Another day, another poll, and yet another example that the Left wants to repeal the Second Amendment. The anti-gun Left has tried to bury this aspect of the discussion. They say they don’t want to confiscate guns; all they want is so-called common sense gun reforms, like expanded background checks (i.e. the foundation for a registry— you can’t fully track all transfers without one), magazine limits, which bar the transfer or sale of a lot of handguns on top of so-called military-style rifles, and a ban on so-called assault weapons, which has taken the form of confiscation for some parts of the country.

Gun control impasse leaves thousands of “prohibited” devices on the street

As many as a million large-capacity rifle magazines that were declared prohibited in 2016 remain in the hands of Canada’s gun owners — the fallout of a simmering legal dispute over the RCMP’s authority to ban weaponry.

Since the 1960s, owners of the popular 22-calibre Ruger 10/22 long rifle have been able to buy magazines with no limit on the number of rounds they can hold.

That changed in May 2016 when the RCMP, in response to a border-seizure incident, declared as prohibited any 10/22 magazines that can hold more than 10 cartridges.

RCMP overreach.

Why It Is Misleading to Compare Murder Rates in the US and Western Europe

2016 article by the American Journal of Medicine claims that homicide rates in the U.S. are 7 times higher than an average of other “high income countries.”  This conclusion is based on a select list of OECD nations compiled in 2010.  The lowest income nation on the list is Hungary, where per capita GDP is $28,000 per year.  Turkey and Mexico did not make the cut because their per capita GDPs are respectively $25,000 and $19,000.  Latvia and Estonia are not on this list, presumably because Latvia joined the OECD in 2016 and Estonia joined in December of 2010.  Turkey, Estonia, and Latvia have murder rates comparable to those in the U.S.  Mexico exceeds the U.S. by about 4 times.  Most would agree that Mexico is not “high income” but the case for excluding these other three nations is not as clear cut.

Secretly, Americans Love Guns. Watch ‘The Walking Dead.’

I don’t know how the debate over gun control is going to play out. But there’s a challenge at the heart of the matter to which we pay too little attention.

Secretly, Americans love guns — if not the actual physical devices then at least the abstract idea. We say we don’t, but our collective id, as represented by what we watch on the screen, suggests otherwise. Because for every police procedural where the suspect who swears he’s innocent finds his licensed handgun missing from its lockbox, there are two popular post-apocalyptic thrillers where the possession of firearms is the only ticket to survival.
