‘The Walking Dead’ Is A Defense Of Gun Ownership

As a tyrant whose subjects would rather face hordes of flesh-eating zombies than live under him, Negan finds it necessary to take one particular step with each new subject. He disarms them.

As longtime fans of AMC long-running smash hit “The Walking Dead” know, the show isn’t so much about zombies as it is about how the living interact with each other as they attempt to survive and deal with the chaos of their world, a world that once looked like ours.

My wife and I have followed Rick Grimes and his band of survivors through thick and thin. It’s always fascinating to explore with the writers of the show how people, particularly strangers, interact with each other in the absence of law and order, steady employment, stability, security, even the knowledge of what one is going to eat the next day. Certainly, as one of the season promo posters eloquently stated, in such a world one would find it necessary to “fight the dead” but “fear the living.”

(Yes I’m still a fan)

Trump to Support Nationwide Concealed Carry

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump — who said he has a concealed carry permit — called for the expansion of gun rights Friday, including making those permits applicable nationwide. In a position paper published on his website Friday afternoon, Trump called for the elimination of gun and magazine bans, labeling them a “total failure.”

“Law-abiding people should be allowed to own the firearm of their choice. The government has no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own,” Trump wrote.

Kids who handed over their toys were given a prize and their guns placed into an art project that featured a mosaic of “a brightly colored hand flashing a peace sign, surrounded by surrendered toy guns.” The mosaic “will be displayed in part to honor Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old boy shot and killed by Cleveland police in 2014 while playing with a toy gun at a community center.”

Sheriff Clarke: Gun Control Was Meant to Keep Arms Away from Black People

WASHINGTON — Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. said he was inspired to advocate for the protection of the Second Amendment after reading about the efforts to keep guns out of the hands of freed slaves who fought for the right to bear arms.

“The fight by the abolitionists, post-slavery, for blacks to be able to be armed — do you know that gun control, early gun control, was really about keeping guns out of the hands of black people?

The War On Guns: Your Guide To Fighting False Media Narratives And Anti-Second Amendment Rhetoric

Dr. John Lott is the go-to expert when it comes to crime data and Second Amendment rights. His studies from the Crime Prevention Center have been cited in numerous pieces, including ones published here on Townhall, about the Left’s incessant, and often ridiculous, efforts to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights. His studies have proven that contrary to what the anti-gun Left says about concealed carry holders, they’re actually more law-abiding than law enforcement. It proved to be useful data when the Violence Policy Center, an anti-gun outfit, decided to push the narrative that concealed carry holders were killers by fudging the data between convictions and trials pending. The VPC combined the two to cook the books. As any lawyer would know, there’s an explicit difference between a conviction and a pending trial. He’s also taken a stab at the whole myth about background checks, which isn’t the magic bullet to creating safer communities.

Tim Kaine on Gun Control: “I Can’t Think of an Issue I’d Rather be Aligned With Than This”

kaine

This gross misuse of taxpayer dollars to advocate for extreme gun controls is indicative of Kaine’s 20 year public career, during which he has ceaselessly attacked the rights of law-abiding gun owners. In choosing Kaine as her running mate, Hillary Clinton has chosen one of the rare politicians that comes close to matching her zeal for restricting gun rights.

The removal of firearms from public ownership is the most important item on the Progressive agenda. Kaine was chosen for this role to support and if necessary replace Hillary. (Look at that picture – he’s a drunk just like Boehner and Hillary.)

Trudeau government rejects e-petition to lift restrictions on AR-15

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government has shot down one of first e-petitions to go before Canadian Parliament, saying it has no plans to change the restricted status of the popular Armalite AR-15 rifle.

In a response to the petition, quietly tabled in the House of Commons this summer while it wasn’t sitting, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said he has “no intention” of invoking a section of Canada’s criminal code to reclassify the firearm as unrestricted.
