Gallup: Support for Gun Control has Dropped and It’s Not a Priority for Americans

Mon, 11/23/2020 - 07:02
After a year of COVID uncertainty, civil unrest, and record gun sales, support for further firearms restrictions has reached its lowest point since 2016. Moreover, the data shows that exceedingly few Americans consider additional gun controls the most pressing issue facing the country. As Gallup was one of the few polling firms that did not disgrace itself during the 2020 elections, anti-gun activists should find the results all the more stinging.

Spiking Interest in Hunting Due to Pandemic?

Mon, 11/23/2020 - 06:57
Americans have been dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic for the vast majority of 2020, and depending on what state one lives in, the impact on daily life has varied from relatively benign to approaching draconian. Regardless of how any particular governing authority has responded, everyone in our country has had to make some sort of adjustment to how they operate day-to-day.

Gun Grabbers Demand Unprecedented “Executive Actions”

Mon, 11/23/2020 - 06:47
Biden was supposedly the point man for the gun control push Barack Obama launched during his second term. Obama has made a point of repeatedly emphasizing how lack of “progress” on gun control was the most frustrating and anger-inducing aspect of his presidency. The Obama-Biden administration spent years searching for ways to unilaterally clamp down on Americans’ access to firearms. Now, however, gun controllers are suggesting that even more, and more dramatic, executive actions against firearms and their owners were somehow left on the table as lawful options.

Gun Control Research Methods: Close Enough

Mon, 11/16/2020 - 06:39
Social science methods are not perfect, but that has never stopped anti-gun researchers from making outlandish claims. Most recently, a team of researchers led by Doctor Apurva Bhatt from the University of Missouri Kansas City sought to evaluate the effect of changes in Missouri firearms laws on suicides among teenagers and young adults. Their analysis is burdened by a fundamental disregard of applicable firearms laws and their findings are so suspect that even uninvolved anti-gun researchers have formally acknowledged the problems.

BATFE Leadership Push Biden to Target Pistol Stabilizing Braces and Unfinished Receivers

Mon, 11/16/2020 - 06:23
Just in case anyone needed further proof that much of the federal bureaucracy is more interested in serving themselves and left-wing political interests than public service, news broke this week that rogue elements of Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) have been conspiring with Joe Biden’s transition team to enact gun control by executive fiat. At the top of these anti-gun government functionaries’ wish list is executive regulation of commonly-owned pistol stabilizing braces and materials used by individuals to make their own firearms –sometimes referred to as unfinished or “80%”frames or receivers.

Tue, 11/10/2020 - 09:06
Although the 2021 session of the Texas Legislature convenes on January 12, gun control advocates financed by New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg and Beto "Hell Yeah, I'll Take Your Guns" O'Rourke wasted no time in announcing their declaration of war on your Second Amendment rights in the Lone Star State.

Most Election Polling is Garbage, Gun Control Polling is Too

Mon, 11/09/2020 - 08:59
Americans are still divided over the reported results of the 2020 election, but one issue that is bringing the country together is a shared disgust of opinion polling. Several “mainstream”polling firms, and the legacy media outlets that tout their bogus findings, have disgraced themselves with wildly inaccurate predictions that managed to tilt almost entirely in a single direction. Gun owners should know that polls touting a purported decline in gun ownership or the supposed popularity of some gun control measures aren’t any better.

Mon, 11/09/2020 - 07:40
With all the drama surrounding the unfolding national election, here at least is some comic relief: mega-gun control funder Michael Bloomberg continued his 2020 streak of burning through huge mountains of political cash with little or nothing to show for it.
