Category: Cult of Gun Control

And you ask why I call gun control advocates cultists?

Via Bearing Arms

Durham, North Carolina Mayor Steve Schewel doesn’t seem bothered by either the dubious constitutionality or the pragmatic concerns about gun control, however. As shootings increase in the city, Shewel’s embraced a gun control agenda that’s aimed squarely at the city’s legal gun owners instead of the small number of violent criminals driving the mayhem and misery.

He said he is asking for the state to allow cities to ban guns in parks, trails, restaurants, bars, and school parking lots.

He is also calling for background checks for all gun sales, for automatic assault weapons to be banned, and for ammunition to be taxed…

“This is not about taking away a hunter’s rifle or the right to bear arms,” Schewel said. “If we’re serious about getting a handle on it, we’re not going to stop it until we cut off the supply of guns to people who are committing crimes.”

Oh of course, it is NEVER about taking away guns, except that is exactly what it is as Cam Edwards explains

Look at what Schewel’s proposing here. Banning legal gun owners from both public and private property? Telling a woman who’s a concealed carry holder that she can no longer carry when she’s running on a trail, or telling a restaurant owner that he can no longer have his firearm with him when he’s in his own establishment?

Of course anyone who can chew bubble gum knows damn well that these measures would dissuade not one criminal. Rather it would encourage more crimes, but the Cult of Gun Control will never grasp that.

The Left just do not grasp liberty

Take their obsession with magazine capacity

Days following the anniversary of one of the nation’s worst weekends of senseless bloodshed, the killing of 32 victims in mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit overturned a California ban of the very type of large-capacity magazine that facilitated the two massacres. Approved in 2016 by a healthy voter majority, Proposition 63 outlawed magazines holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

“California’s near-categorical ban of (large-capacity magazines) strikes at the core of the Second Amendment — the right to armed self-defense,” Judge Kenneth Lee wrote for the court majority.  

However, it is hard to imagine a situation in which some law-abiding gun owner would need to shoot off dozens of rounds in defense of self or others. It is a stretch to conceive of a home invasion by a horde of armed intruders, so many that a rapid-fire response would be required to ward off the threat.

Well, armed invasions by multiple persons is rare, but not that rare, and the “mostly peaceful” protesters rioters and looters have shown us that such a threat is growing for Americans. But, the best argument against foolish people who still think “reasonable” gun laws will make bad people stop committing crimes is this. The right, God given right, to self-defense is the most basic and important human right.

A story that will trigger the Cult of Gun Control

Via the Zendo one

That thing the Left says “Never Happens,” well it happened again in Salt Lake City. Police: Gunman shot, killed by employee in Salt Lake club.

He had been asked to leave the bar earlier, but he apparently was able to get back in.

About 1:30 a.m., one of the patrons at Echo Nightclub, 134 W. Pierpont Ave., “decided to go out, get a gun, and started shooting it throughout the club. At one point, another person that was there, an employee who had his own gun, saw it and shot him,” said Salt Lake Police Lt. Brett Olsen.

No one else was injured, Olsen said.

Then, there is this spoon head

A Marxist Moron and a member of the Cult of Gun Control, and yes, a massive Karen

I was disheartened, then aggravated, after seeing the above photo published in Morris Township’s August 2020 Municipal Messenger.

After my concerns and comments on this subject on the July Township Committee Zoom Meeting, after having seen the same photo in the July Municipal Messenger, promoting participation in the Citizen Police Academy program offered in the Township,  I would have thought that more deliberate content would have been selected for publication.

Clearly, I was mistaken!

I will say again, I think this photo selection is glamorizing the use of guns in our town and society. Having them in the hands of our citizens, and promotion of same as endorsed by this police program is unconscionable!

Yes, she is an emotional wreck over a photo of people doing finger guns! File another one under Good Freaking Grief!!

“So, I answered the door. The police officer was, he was very nice. He explained to me that he was coming to address an issue with my son’s school,” Courtney told Project Baltimore. “And then explained to me that he was here to search for weapons, in my home. And I consented to let him in. And then I, unfortunately, stood there and watched police officers enter my 11-year-old son’s bedroom.”

Courtney was told someone had seen the guns in her son’s bedroom during a Google Meet class on his laptop.

According to emails Courtney later exchanged with a school administrator, a screenshot was taken during the online class. The principal of Seneca Elementary was notified. Courtney says she was told the school safety officer then called police.

“I felt violated as a parent, for my child, who’s standing there with police officers in his room, just to see the fear on his face,” she said.

It might be time to ask if people who are so irrationally afraid of firearms should be allowed to work in schools.

In Leftist Land the Stupid Never Stops

A Police officer in Olympia, Washington is being investigated for posing with armed Americans protecting businesses from gutter trash looters.

Via Bearing Arms

The chief of the Olympia, Washington police department says an internal investigation is taking place after an officer posed for a picture with several members of the group Three Percent of Washington early Friday morning. The group of about a dozen gun owners were standing guard outside of a local gun store after the owner requested “armed members of the community to make a presence in his parking lot” over concerns that his store would be targeted by burglars.

Oh NO! Not Three Percenters, they believe in the second amendment! EWWWW. I mean look at the picture

This image, of course triggers leftist bed wetters, and sadly the police chief in Olympia is more political hack than police officer, so, cue the weasel words

“I am disappointed and frustrated that the photo was taken at all, but particularly at this sensitive time in our city and nation,” Jelcick wrote. “I regret that this photo may damage the trust our community places in us that we have worked so hard to build. I apologize for the pain this has caused our community. It is imperative that Olympia Police Officers uphold our values, remain neutral to the message at public demonstrations, and do not engage in or promote conduct that will bring discredit to themselves, the Department or the City.”

Meanwhile Mayor Cheryl Selby was quick to jump on the Weasel Express

“After a long week for my community, I’m discouraged that I have to make a post like this,” the mayor wrote. “I have confirmed a photo of an Olympia police officer posing with a group of armed militia members, some of whom are displaying white power signs. I find this behavior to be abhorrent and unequivocally unacceptable.

“Our council/manager form of government restricts me from discussing disciplinary measures, though my council and I are demanding a thorough investigation,” she wrote. “As the picture clearly illustrates in no uncertain terms, a culture change within the police department and city government is clearly needed.

“We hear our community demanding it and we must rise to meet this challenge. The presence of an armed militia is not what we want to see in Olympia, and we are asking those people to stay home to ensure that peaceful protest can continue in our city.”

She ended her post with “BLACK LIVES MATTER!!!!!”

Certainly giving a shout out to the Marxists of BLM is not unprofessional right Mayor McMoron? If she looked at the photo, she would see the Black member of the group front and center. The group also includes two Hispanic men, and a Jewish member. The officer is, clearly, a woman. I believe they call that diversity. Of course, women, Jews, Blacks and Hispanic people are not really genuine unless they are leftists so………... As to the White Power hand gesture, that is a sign that members of Three Percenters use, sooooooo.

Sadly, this is our new normal where many political leaders are concerned. looters and rioters excused while law enforcement is vilified and Americans who exercise the right of self-defense are portrayed as evil.

And then, they came for Elmer Fudd…………..

Again, Leftism destroy everything it touches

In a new series based on the beloved “Looney Tunes” cartoons, the classic character Elmer Fudd will no longer carry a gun.

The new series “Looney Tunes Cartoons,” which premiered last week on the streaming service HBO Max, will feature the cartoon’s characteristic violence – using sticks of dynamite, booby traps and the iconic anvils and bank safes dropped onto characters, The New York Times reported last week.

However, Peter Browngardt, the series executive producer and showrunner, told the outlet, “We’re not doing guns.”

Good Freaking Grief

Yes, the Democrats still have the fever for gutting the second amendment

Professional Moron Rep. Hank Johnson Georgia has introduced legislation that would as Tom Knighton writes, embrace every wet dream the Cult of Gun Control has

So Georgia Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson doesn’t get a pass on trying to pull this while people are distracted elsewhere.

A reminder that Democrats do not care about stopping crime

Via Hot Air

There are still more people dying in Baltimore from gunshot wounds than the coronavirus pandemic, a trend that “social distancing” hasn’t slowed down very much. It’s gotten so bad that the mayor felt compelled to beg the gangs to stop shooting people so they can save hospital beds for the COVID-19 patients. That’s why it seemed vital for the state legislature to finally push through some tough new gun crime laws designed to get some of these shooters behind bars and keep them there.

Unfortunately for the residents of Maryland, Democrats in the legislature didn’t see it that way. The recent package of bills intended to reduce gun violence was once again rejected. (Free Beacon)

Maryland Democrats rejected a bill aimed at combating gun violence as Baltimore mayor Jack Young publicly begged residents to stop shooting each other so hospitals could be used to treat coronavirus patients…

[Governor Larry] Hogan’s Violent Firearms Offenders Act would make the theft of a firearm a felony and increase penalties for those who repeatedly carry illegal guns or use a gun while drug dealing. The bill passed the state Senate on March 10 following a contentious back-and-forth between lawmakers. Democrats successfully removed the legislation’s mandatory minimum sentencing increase, arguing it would punish violent criminals too severely.

Odd? No, sadly Virginia Democrats buried legislation that would have gotten tougher on violent criminals at the same time they were pushing to take legal gun owners firearms away. Priorities!

Statist Mayor of New Orleans declares herself empress

Via Bearing Arms\

Now, the current mayor of New Orleans has gifted herself with the power to suspend the Second Amendment in a slightly different way.

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell (D) signed a coronavirus emergency order last week allowing her to ban the sale and transportation of firearms.

She signed a follow-up proclamation on March 16, 2020, further emphasizing her emergency powers to “suspend or limit the sale, dispensing, or transportation, of alcoholic beverages.”

The declaration declaring the mayor’s power to restrict gun sales and transportation says she is “empowered, if necessary, to suspend or limit the sale of alcoholic beverages, firearms, explosives, and combustibles.”

In other words, if she can’t confiscate firearms in the current emergency, she can damn well try and make it so no one can buy a firearm.

Another power hungry politician who does not grasp either reality or natural rights. Anyone seeking to commit any crimes will, of course, NOT obey such laws. So, only good people will be affected, but, do not bug the mayor with common sense because GUNS BAD!

Colorado Democrats have the fever for failure

What does the Cult of Gun Control do when gun control does not reduce violent crime?. Pitch more gun control of course

Back in 2013, Democrats in control of Colorado’s legislature rammed through universal background checks and a ban on ammunition magazines capable of holding more than 15-rounds. When he signed the bills, then-Governor John Hickenlooper promised that the new laws would make Colorado safer.

They haven’t. Violent crime is up by more than 25-percent since the new laws were put on the books, but Democrats in the legislature are doubling down on their anti-gun efforts by proclaiming the state is in a crisis and the only hope is to pass even more laws aimed at legal gun owners.

Colorado Democrats are introducing two new gun bills Friday afternoon that they say represent the next steps in what will be a years-long attempt at stemming gun violence here.

Rep. Monica Duran, a Wheat Ridge Democrat who’s sponsoring one of the new bills, said, “Each year, whatever it might be, whatever it might look like, we will be bringing (gun) legislation to the point to where it’s just as common as a health care bill, just as common as an environmental bill, where it’s not some big thing, where it’s standard, normal. We’re going to be dealing with this.”

The left’s laws fail because the laws target not th.   criminal, but tool the criminal uses. You can read the specifics of the bills at Bearing Arms

Your Cult of Gun Control Tool of the Day

Igor Volsky really lays on the anti gun rhetoric

When Igor Volsky, the co-founder and executive director of Guns Down America, a gun-control group “dedicated to building a future with fewer guns,” saw an article in The New York Times claiming that gun manufacturers are suddenly (more on that in a moment) marketing to women and minorities, he showcased his ignorance about America and our freedom in a series of tweets:

“1/ Gun makers are softening their image to ‘put a better face in front of people’ & ‘ramp up its appeal to women, children and members of minority groups,’” wrote Volsky. “That’s right: Gun makers are increasingly advertising to WOMEN, CHILDREN & MINORITY COMMUNITIES.”

Oh no, not armed women. Why should they be able to defend themselves right? And minorities? With guns? My God how will the republic survive right Igor? What an asshat this clown is. The best however is that gun makers are advertising to children!!!!!!!!!!!!

Again, what a steaming pile of leftist manure. He sounds desperate, really desperate to demonize the gun makers, and scare fools who emote rather than think.

Stigmatizing gun owners, another cheap tactic by The Cult of Gun Control

The left, which cares nothing about truth, always has propaganda to fall back on, as Cam Edwards notes

Alameda, California is home to some of the most anti-gun politicians in the entire state, which is saying something. A few years ago, Alameda County changed its zoning laws to prevent any new gun shops from opening (in a case that, frustratingly, the Supreme Court declined to review), and now council members in the city of Alameda itself are set to approve a number of new local laws aimed at legal gun owners and the city’s sole gun store when the City Council meets on Tuesday.

The mandatory training could include lessons about how firearms can make domestic violence even more dangerous and how someone in a mental health crisis or struggling with substance abuse may be more likely to contemplate suicide if a firearm is nearby.

The proposed ordinance also would require gun owners to store their firearms at home inside a locked container or have them disabled with a trigger lock. In addition, the ordinance would require all gun sales to be videotaped.

“These proposals are a great start in ensuring that legally owned firearms are secured from minors, criminals and people in crisis,” Vice Mayor John Knox White said Friday. “The proposals also provide law enforcement with a new tool to ensure gun sales in Alameda meet all legal requirements.”

Violators could face fines or criminal prosecution.

Some of the same old laws, meant to hassle legal gun owners, and make it harder to defend themselves with a firearm rather than punish violent people. Go read it all, this part, to me is the most telling

Councilman Tony Daysog said he was disappointed the proposed ordinance doesn’t mandate that guns within a store be placed away from other merchandise.

“The issue is that, when Big 5 at the South Shore shopping center displays rows and rows of firearms right next to the check-out area in clear view by people of all ages, it sends the wrong message that the brute force that guns represent is normal, or as normal as soccer balls, tennis rackets and running shoes at Big 5,” Daysog said Friday. “Even if Big 5 isn’t selling military assault-style weapons, it’s the normalization of the brute force of guns that worries me.”

What a clown!

Why are Democrat run cities so often violent hell holes?

Fritz gives the example of Baltimore

Jazz Shaw at Hot Air, Baltimore Democrats Don’t Want Larry Hogan To Rein In Gun Violence

It’s no secret that the city of Baltimore, Maryland is in the middle of a violent crime crisis and has been for several years now. 2019 saw a new record in the per capita murder rate and 2020 isn’t starting off any better, with the city averaging more than one murder per day. Governor Larry Hogan has promised to do something about it and this month he unveiled a new crime bill that would finally toughen up penalties for gun crimes and close the revolving door of gang members parading in and out of jail.

So what have the Democrats in the legislature done about it? They’re preparing to shoot it down, of course. And the interim mayor of Charm City is backing them up. (CBS Baltimore)

Citing their opposition to mandatory minimum sentences, Democrats in the Maryland General Assembly say they are unlikely to pass Gov. Larry Hogan’s top priority this session ― the Violent Firearms Offender Act ― infuriating the governor who alleges lawmakers aren’t taking shootings in Baltimore seriously.
In an interview with The Baltimore Sun on Wednesday, Hogan argued that lawmakers who don’t support his legislation are out of touch with the views of most Marylanders and should step down from their leadership posts. On a table in his office at the State House, he spread out his internal polling results that show residents overwhelmingly want “tougher sentences for violent offenders who commit crimes with guns.”

And, I think anyone with a grip on reality knows, NOT punishing violent people will get you more and worse violence. Of course taking guns from law abiding people is right up their alley.

Moral retardation on full blast

“No one wants to take your guns” The lefts’ biggest lie

The left detests natural rights, and, of those liberties, which our nation was founded upon, the right to keep and bear arms is the one they despise the most. Yes, they always insist that they do not take anyone’s gun away. After all, they tell us, they are hunters too, or their fathers owned a rifle, or they respect the respect the second amendment, or any number of lies. And yes, when a leftist tells you they do not want your guns, they are telling the most transparent, egregious lie.

Mike McDaniel understands their dishonesty, and, as always holds nothing back in setting the record straight. Take Joe Biden for instance


Sounds like a real firearms expert doesn’t he?

During his years as Vice President, Biden provided advice on guns that would be likely to get anyone practicing it arrested and jailed.  He repeatedly claimed the best self-defense weapon was a double-barreled shotgun, and urged people to fire blindly through doors and into the air.  A true believer, he is consistent, at least, in his desire to disarm the law abiding, as The Daily reports:

Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden made extreme remarks during a CNN town hall event on Thursday night where he called for banning semi-automatic firearms and ‘clips that have multiple bullets in them,’ which would effectively ban nearly all firearms.

One might think this would leave revolvers, but it would be a mistake to think people like Biden would exclude them.  Once any class of firearm is successfully banned, every remaining class would soon follow.

I’m going to do everything in my power in office or out of office to get those assault weapons off the street, which I have done once already,’ Biden claimed. ‘And to get those clips that have multiple bullets in them not for sale, not be able to sell silencers, all those things.’

Sounds pretty dictatorial there doesn’t it?. And the rest of the Democratic field is just as bad, as uncompromising as Senile Joe is. McDaniel sets everyone straight on why free people should never “compromise” what the is ours by birth right

But what about compromise?  Anti-liberty/gun cracktivists constantly talk about “common sense gun safety” measures, and castigate normal Americans honoring the Constitution for refusing to “compromise.”

Biden, who made the remarks while talking to reporters, later said that there should be no compromise with the Republicans when it came to his extreme anti-Second Amendment proposals.

How does one compromise the tools necessary to exercise the right to self-defense? How may one compromise the means necessary to resist tyranny?  D/S/Cs snort derisively and accuse anyone bringing up the Founder’s primary reason for the Second Amendment—deterring, and when necessary, overthrowing a tyrannical government—an alarmist traitor, but it is those that would neuter or eliminate any part of the Bill of Rights that betray the foundations of our representative republic.

Amen. And, no, Joe’s grand power grab of disarming the law abiding would not the first damn thing in preventing “gun violence”

Biden’s extreme proposal of banning semi-automatic firearms would do little to reduce mass shootings in the United States, according to a new study released this month by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, named after notorious anti-Second Amendment activist billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who is also running for president as a Democrat.

That study, as  McDaniel rightly points out came from a reporter who was a supporter of “common sense gun control”. But understand that actually saving lives, preventing violent crimes, and the like is not a goal of the left. Taking your guns away is!

In response to several horrific school shootings in the U.S., Biden said that he did not want to protect kids at schools by arming school faculty.

Biden also attacked Texas Governor Greg Abbott last September for signing a bill into law that allowed Texans to carry lawfully owned firearms into places of worship, saying that it was ‘totally irrational.’

Three months after his remarks, a hero at a church in Texas stopped an attacker within a matter of seconds after the attacker opened fire on the congregation.

And, again, Joe is not the only Democrat who desires more unarmed victims of evil actors. Senator Warren, and Mike Bloomberg both dismissed the idea of armed self-defense. Yes, even after the man in Texas saved many lives in that church. Yes, really! As McDaniel points out they care only about power

They know best what you need and don’t need, what you should have, how much of your money you should be allowed to keep, and above all, they know you don’t deserve the means of self-defense.  Their lives are of inestimable value; they have all the armed security they need.  Yours has value only in its unwavering support of them and their utopian state.

They really do want you disarmed.


Governor Northam’s gun ban meets massive FAIL

Of course, I am sure the Democrats Leftists in the Virginia legislature will try again next year, but for now they can SUCK IT!

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s sweeping gun, magazine, and suppressor ban was defeated in the state senate’s Judiciary Committee Monday morning in front of a crowd of gun owners and Second Amendment supporters. Four Democrats joined every Republican on the committee in rejecting HB961, which had narrowly advanced out of the House of Delegates just before a legislative deadline last week.

Committee chairman John Edwards joined fellow Democrats Chap Petersen, Creigh Deeds, Scott Surovell, and every Republican on the committee to send the bill to the Virginia Crime Commission for further study, which kills the bill’s chances for this legislative session

As Cam points out, this is not done as there are still numerous bad bills Governor BlackFace could sign, so, stay vigilant and remember to vote OUT those who tried to destroy your rights when they run for another term

AOC-Dumber than a box of rocks

If submarines had,like screen doors, the sailors could like see the fish


She is just not, that bright

Of course, AOC overlooks reality, and New York gun laws

Ocasio-Cortez’s suggestion that gun control would have prevented the attacks is untrue.

New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said at a news conference Sunday that the perpetrator has a “lengthy violent criminal history,” including serving more than a decade in prison for attempted murder before being paroled in 2017, the Washington Post reported.

This means that the perpetrator is a felon and already barred from owning or possessing firearms.

You mighty think AOC would realize that this killer should have been in prison. She might even ask why those who attempt murder are ever let out of prison, but, apparently such logic escapes her

A BIG day for liberty in Virginia tomorrow

Governor Ralph Northam’s coveted gun/magazine/suppressor ban will be voted on in the House of Delegates Tuesday the 11th, Cam Edwards has the break down

After narrowly passing out of a House committee last Friday, Gov. Ralph Northam’s gun bill is on track for a final vote by the Virginia House of Delegates on Tuesday. If approved, HB961 would then head over to the state Senate, where four Democrat senators have already spoken in opposition to the bill as introduced.

I’m really pleased that David Adams, legislative affairs director for the Virginia Shooting Sports Association was able to join me on today’s Bearing Arms’ Cam & Co. to talk about the latest language of the bill and its current prospects in both the House and Senate.

Adams believes there’ll be bipartisan opposition to the gun ban bill, which also bans the continued possession of all ammunition magazines that can hold more than 12-rounds, as well as banning the future sale and manufacturing of many semi-automatic long guns and AR-pistols and all suppressors. Whether there’s enough to defeat the bill in the House remains an open question.

According to Adams, as late as last Tuesday folks at the state capitol were hearing that HB961 didn’t have the votes and Democrats weren’t planning on bringing up the bill. Clearly something changed, and Adams believes it was intense lobbying by the governor’s office that ultimately led House Democrats to start moving on the bill.

Northam wants to sign something that he can call an “assault weapons” ban, even if the particulars get watered down in the process. The important thing is to get the ban on the books. Democrats will be in control of the legislature next year as well, and he can always push for them to “close loopholes” that “allow Virginians to continue to possess these battlefield weapons of war” in the 2021 session. That’s why, no matter how many times this bill is amended, the original intent of the governor cannot be forgotten. Originally the governor was backing SB16, which would have compelled Virginia gun owners to get rid of their so-called assault weapons along with any magazines capable of holding more than 10-rounds, all suppressors, and all “trigger activators” as well.

Northam is ready for a power grab, let us all pray that does not happen. Go to the link, have a listen, and be glad that several awful bills are DOA, at least for this year. But our liberty is still at stake

John Kerry Firearms Expert!


At a campaign event for Joe Biden in Iowa over the weekend, former Secretary of State John Kerry let loose with a high-powered political gaffe when he talked about his disdain for so-called “assault weapons.”

“You heard from Joe about the things he did with the NRA,” the former Massachusetts senator said. “That took courage. Delaware is a tough state. I’m a hunter. I’m a gun owner. I’ve been one all my life. There’s not a veteran here who would take an AR-16 with a long clip to go out and shoot a deer or shoot anything. There is no business — Joe led the fight to get those things off the street.”

Yep, the dreaded and feared AR-16 Good Freaking Grief! Another “life long” gun owner without a clue
