Democrat Gun Sit in

The Democratic Party is apparently taking cues from progressive campus protesters now. In a move reminiscent of a safe space at Mizzou, congressional proponents of gun control staged a sit-in on the House floor yesterday.

The irony is that these aging, 1960’s obsessed hipsters disguised as elected officials were actually protesting civil...

Hillary Clinton has been endorsed by the Michael Bloomberg affiliated group Everytown which claims she’s the only candidate who’s serious about the issue.

Gun control has never been a winner for Democrats at election time so it’s surprising that this is being touted as a win for her.

In 2013, Maryland enacted its Firearms Safety Act (FSA). With its passage, effectively banning its residents from owning any of the large majority of semi-automatic rifles owned by American citizens (exceptions were made for retired law enforcement officers). The FSA also imposed other restrictions, such as banning certain standard-capacity magazines.

Obama can once again lay credible claim to the title of “Best Gun Salesman Ever.”

His recently announced policy changes on guns not only do nothing to discourage gun purchases, they if anything facilitate even greater volumes of gun sales, and in particular machine guns, suppressors, short-barreled rifles/shotguns, and other highly controlled “NFA”...
