This nation does not need the draft [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2016-05-21 18:38:41 by tpaine
This nation does not need the draft By Michael A. Thiac A proposal to include women in the military draft, supported in Congressional testimony by the heads of the Marine Corps and Army, was stripped from the National Defense Authorization Act by a close vote of the House Rules Committee this week. But agitation for universal military conscription will continue, sometimes from the left, so so that Americans feel the burden of ongoing military operations against Islamic militants, will not go away. After 23 years of military service, it is clear to me that a universal draft is not essential, and indeed would be harmful to our national security. Asking everyone to ...

But this 19th-century rifle has become the most expensive single firearm ever sold at auction according to the Rock Island Auction Company, which recently sent the historic piece to a new destiny with an undisclosed buyer. The price: $1,265,000. Other guns have sold higher as a pair, but no other single firearm surpasses this new world record.

The rifle itself was a gift from one Congressional Medal of Honor winner to another. U.S. Army Captain Henry ...
California Democrats To Launch ‘Gunpocalpyse’ May 16
Post Date: 2016-05-15 08:46:30 by cranky
Democrat lawmakers in California are preparing to launch Gunpocalypse on Monday, May 16. The Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) warns that anti-gun lawmakers will be relentless in their legislative assault, as they want to secure success for their favorite gun control proposals before Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom (D) has a chance to step in and upstage them via his ballot initiative in November on background checks for ammunition. FPC legislative advocate Craig DeLuz warns: Democrats have given up on any illusion of respect for the process or the voice of the people. The saddest part is that they are clearly doing this as a political ploy to undermine Gavin Newsoms initiative on ...

There is no doubt that people do have the right to carry and have a stockpile of guns (the right of the people to keep and bear arms) and a state has the right to organize a well-regulated Militia. But, the main issue is on the right to self-defend with a firearm. The main ...

Taxpayer advocate warns taxes could kill the 2nd Amendment
Post Date: 2016-04-16 12:10:46 by Stoner
A massive new handgun tax imposed in one U.S. territory could serve as a blueprint for Democrats to ban firearms throughout the country without being shut down by the Constitution. Late last month, a federal judge ruled unconstitutional a 40-year-old total ban on handguns in the Northern Mariana Islands. In the ruling, the judge declared: [B]ecause the people of the Commonwealth are part of the American people who have overwhelmingly chosen handguns as their principal means of self-defense, the Second Amendment protects that right here as well. In response to the judges order, the territorys governing body worked out another way to deny residents 2nd ...

Does Carrying A Pistol Make You Safer?
Post Date: 2016-04-13 11:55:55 by Willie Green
There is a pistol-packing revolution going on in America. Nearly 13 million Americans have permits to carry concealed handguns triple the number just nine years ago and that figure is low because not every state reports. It's puzzling that so many Americans are choosing to arm themselves at a time when the FBI tells us violent crime and property crime have been falling dramatically for two decades. In search of handgun permit holders, I drove out to the Texas Firearms Festival, an outdoor gun extravaganza held near Austin where firearms fanciers get to shoot everything they see. "If you're in Paris and you see people coming with AKs into your rock concert, that ...

In the past three months, Pennsylvania residents have tried to buy 97 firearms every hour. Additionally, the number of requests this quarter through the Pennsylvania Instant Check System (PICS) is up 26 percent from last year. Since PICS was established in 1998, the number of background checks has incrementally increased from 200,000 at it inception to over a million by 2013. That was mostly due to the post-Sandy Hook talk about gun control (via Penn Live): Every hour during the months of January, February and March, more than 97 people attempted to buy or transfer ownership of a gun in Pennsylvania. And those are just the legal transactions. According to the state police firearms report, ...

Gavin Newsom: Ammunition ‘The Most Dangerous Part’ of a Gun
Post Date: 2016-04-06 00:20:12 by Stoner
Californian Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom is hitching his 2018 gubernatorial campaign to a statewide ballot proposal that would sharply restrict the sale of ammunition. It seems to me the most dangerous part of the weapon is not the weapon itself, its the ammunition, he said April 1. He wants anyone buying ammunition to endure a background check similar to the one that would-be gun buyers currently have to pass to buy a firearm. According to the Press Democrat, Newsom, speaking at the Graton casino, told a story about being denied a Sudafed cold medicine purchase because he did not have a drivers license to show at the pharmacy counter. He suggested it is strange ...
