Op-Ed: Armed doctor saved lives

On Thursday afternoon, Dr. Lee Silverman undoubtedly saved many lives. Using a handgun, the Delaware County psychiatrist stopped what both police and the district attorney described as a certain mass killing at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital. The attacker, Richard Plotts, is a convicted felon, which bans him from legally owning a gun. But Pennsylvania's universal background check law did not stop him...

BACKFIRE: Bloomberg's "Everytown" for gun control ad sparks pro-gun conversation on The View

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg's newly-minted gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety isn't getting off to a very good start, especially for a group that, like its predecessors (Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America), didn't start with the grassroots and is simply PR smoke and mirrors. At the time it was launched in April, and despite the fact that he can...

Colorado's Experience Soundly Refutes Common Anti-gun Talking Point

Last month, while addressing a group of Colorado sheriffs, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper spoke on the topic of the state's 2013 measure outlawing almost all private transfers of firearms. According to the Denver Post, Hickenlooper told the sheriffs, "I think we screwed that up completely... we were forming legislation without basic facts." A new Associated Press report examining Colorado...

Biden, Bloomberg Describe Second Amendment Supporters with Vulgarities and Slurs

What is it with the elitist political class and their insulting, arrogant, even vulgar comments about gun owners and others who live in Heartland America? It’s been going on a long time and continues to this day, even though it gets gun control supporters nowhere. In 1985, then-New York governor Mario Cuomo said that people who oppose mandatory seat belt laws are “hunters who drink beer, don’t...

Op-Ed: New Study- Criminals Prefer Handguns, Not “Assault Weapons”

Thugs prefer handguns over any type of rifle, shotgun or other “long gun.” Go figure. According to a study published on June 16, 2014, the vast majority of guns seized from gang members, felons and drug traffickers were handguns, not fully-automatic rifles, nor even the semi-automatic modern sporting rifles deliberately mislabeled as “assault weapons” by the gun ban lobby. Why? For decades...

Bloomberg Proxy Releases Anti-Gun Manifesto; Proposes to Ban Cartoon Characters and Colors!

The name of U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly (D-Ill.) headlines the Kelly Report, a new manifesto identifying a long list of gun control initiatives that anti-gun activists intend to pursue in the near future. However, the document appears to be the handiwork of Michael Bloomberg, whose misleadingly-named Independence USA political action committee contributed $2.1 million to Kelly’s congressional campaign...

NSSF Statement on U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Study on Traditional Ammunition and Bald Eagles

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has made available a preview of a new study regarding traditional ammunition and mortality of bald eagles in the upper Midwest that has led to news stories misleading the public into thinking the use of traditional ammunition containing lead components is having a population-level impact on bald eagles. That is not the case. The National Shooting Sports...

Headline: 1960s Ohio State star sues over road rage arrest

Concealed handgun licensees are, general speaking, a law-abiding bunch - more-so than the average non-license-holder. Crimes committed by concealed handgun licensees are rare. Violent crimes committed by licensees are so rare, in fact, that statistically speaking, a law enforcement officer has been shown to be three times more likely to commit murder than a concealed handgun licensee...
