Beto Going All-In on Confiscation

Sun, 09/15/2019 - 10:58
Democrat Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke continues to struggle to gain any sort of traction for his campaign. With some polls putting him in 10th place, and his average sitting around 7th, some might say that it is desperation time for the candidate who was once a darling with the far left and the legacy media while he was running his losing campaign to unseat U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex.). A recent tweet from O’Rourke is just one clue that the candidate is, indeed, becoming desperate.

Tell Your Lawmakers: No Semi-Auto and Magazine Ban!

Sun, 09/15/2019 - 10:52
The Democrat Party is now so aligned with gun control that every major candidate running for its 2020 presidential nomination recently appeared in a propaganda video produced by one of the nation’s most active firearm prohibition groups. It should come as no surprise, then, that a bill introduced in the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives to ban most modern semi-automatic long guns, and the original-equipment magazines used with such firearms, is rapidly gaining steam. Your help is urgently needed to ensure this wide-ranging gun ban never becomes law.

Mind Your OWN Business: CEOs Try to Boss Around Congress to Limit Second Amendment Rights

Sun, 09/15/2019 - 10:36
Recently, there’s been an outbreak of “corporate activism” around gun control. Or at least that’s what we’re led to believe.  Really, what’s happening is that gun control activists are “partnering” with businesses that have nothing to do with guns and who have nothing insightful to say about them but who are always eager to portray themselves as “good corporate citizens.” The “value” to these companies for joining the effort is some positive headlines from the anti-capitalist media (which are even more anti-gun), rather than the usual hectoring about the private sector’s exploitation of workers, the environment, the tax code, personal information, etc.
