Supreme Court Justices Reveal Their Ignorance On Guns In Oral Arguments

From The Federalist:

The key differences between automatic and semiautomatic weapons with bump stocks were largely lost on the justices, especially Ketanji Brown Jackson and Elena Kagan, who repeatedly insisted bump stock-equipped guns can fire up to 800 rounds a second. They, along with the government’s legal team, repeated the lie that semiautomatic rifles with modifiers could fire hundreds of shots (in Kagan’s words, “a torrent of bullets”) each moment. Cargill lawyer Johnathan Mitchell corrected them multiple times.

More Americans Need Start To Hunting

From The Federalist:

Hunting is an undervalued way to develop the manly character our Founding Fathers thought to be essential to our republic’s survival. The experience of braving less-than-ideal weather, sitting patiently in the woods, and calming your nerves as you set your sights on a trophy animal certainly builds character. Hunting also forces you to come face to face with the uncomfortable reality that your food comes from an animal’s death. In an economy where meat comes nicely packaged in plastic at the grocery store, there is a real lack of men who have both the practical know-how and the intestinal fortitude to hunt, butcher, and process meat.

Reality Hits Jews Who Don’t Like Guns

From Post-Gazette:

Under the keen eye of a trained instructor, who was also Jewish, David was surprised at how comfortable he was handling a gun. As someone who grew up in a community in which owning guns was unthinkable, he was surprised at how many of his friends also owned guns.

“Growing up, the mere thought of owning a gun or handling a gun was taboo. However, once I started having conversations with people after Tree of Life, I found the reality is everybody might be somebody who would buy a gun. It just depends on what it takes to get one,” he explained.

The American Hunt

From The Old Glory Club:

Though the sport has declined in participation over the last fifty years, America still has more hunters than anywhere else on Earth. An average of 700,000 hunters take part in the harvest every year in Wisconsin alone, which is more than any standing army on earth. Travel to any rural county in America, and you’ll find Opening Day is celebrated with as much reverence as Thanksgiving. Some counties will close businesses and even schools. They know no work is getting done — there’s freezers that need filling.

Israeli Attacks Show Why All Citizens Should Be Armed

From The Federalist:

After the horrific terrorist attack by Hamas from Gaza, Israel’s government suddenly made it slightly easier for its citizens to own firearms for self-defense.

Israeli Minister of National Security Itamar Ben-Gvir announced Sunday in Hebrew an emergency declaration that will “allow as many citizens as possible to arm themselves.” Currently, a mere 1.5 percent of the civilian population has a license to own a gun.

NDAA Sneaks In More Gun Prohibitions

From The Federalist:

Section 2(f) of the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988 (18 U.S.C. 922 note; Public Law 100–649) is amended— (1) by striking ‘‘EFFECTIVE DATE AND SUNSET PROVISION’’ and all that follows through ‘‘This Act and the amendments’’ and inserting the following: ‘‘EFFECTIVE DATE.—This Act and the amendments’’; and (2) by striking paragraph (2).

The provision looks harmless enough at first glance. However, to fully understand how this paragraph further infringes the Second Amendment, one must understand what the 1988 Undetectable Firearms Act says, and why striking the effective date puts our rights in jeopardy.

Pieces of Metal and Plastic Cannot Be Deemed Guns

From Reason:

A couple of years ago, an “80 percent” receiver I purchased refused to accept parts, let alone chamber and fire cartridges, until my son and I drilled and milled it to completion; that’s because unfinished firearms are not firearms. For a long time, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) agreed. But, pressured by the Biden administration, the ATF tried to extend firearms regulations to a lot of things that aren’t guns but could, with work, become one. Now a federal judge is injecting some sense, ruling in a lawsuit that bureaucrats can’t just decide that inert objects are guns.

Bangor Daily News Does Real Reporting On Criminals Getting Guns

From Bangor Daily News:

A 2012 study of 253 people incarcerated for gun crimes found that about 40 percent were previously prohibited from having them. Those participants only occasionally got their guns from stores or pawn shops, and none reported using gun shows. Most were obtained from friends, family and dealers on the street — and were usually purchased or borrowed instead of stolen.

The Case For AR15 Story Hour

From Handwaving Freakoutery:

Here’s the idea.

Get a guy in a Hawaiian shirt, a desert camo plate carrier, a helmet, night vision goggles, and an unloaded and safely carried AR-15 battle rifle, to sit on a chair in a library and read kids books to them, totally unrelated to guns. Fox in Socks, Berenstain Bears, whatever. Acclimate the kids to being around an AR-15, the way DQSH acclimates children to transgenders. That’s it. Nothing more.

The Lie of “Children Killed By Guns”

From Rules for Anti-Radicals:

It is, in fact, the sort of “big lie” that would make Joseph Goebbels proud. And like all good propaganda, the “children killed by guns” lie is designed to hide an ambitious agenda. Let’s examine how they lie, and what the truth really is. All data cited in this article come from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s “WISQARS” (Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System) for 2020, the year most recently available, and are expressed in fatalities per 100,000 people.
