'Wake up and smell the napalm'

Mon, 01/28/2019 - 12:07
Today’s Democratic Party is not JFK’s Democratic Party. They demonstrated that when the newly seated Democratic legislative majority in New York State passed a law signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo legalizing abortion through the due date of a pregnancy. Onlookers cheered wildly when this infanticide bill passed. As I said, JFK would not recognize his party, which is now run by cultural and economic Marxists who yearn to install an electoral system to wipe out the opposition and give us more New York outcomes.

NRA state association seeks to topple 2 strict California gun laws

Mon, 01/28/2019 - 10:31
More than two years after California voters made it illegal to possess high-capacity gun magazines commonly used in mass shootings, the National Rifle Association has successfully tied the measure up in court. Now the gun lobby has set its sights on a nearly 2-decade-old law that banned the sale of those devices in the state. That law, which took effect in 2000, has made it illegal to buy or sell magazines that can hold more than 10 cartridges. Proposition 63, sponsored by then-Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and approved by the voters in 2016, would require anyone who owns the magazines to turn them in, send them out of state or remake them to comply with the law. If the NRA succeeds in killing one or both measures, they would be the organization’s first victories in a lengthy California campaign against some of the nation’s strictest gun-control laws. The final decision will likely rest with the U.S. Supreme Court and could signal whether President Trump’s new appointees have revived the court’s fervor on firearms issues after nearly a decade of silence.

“Arrest Me:” Pittsburgh Mayor Resorts to Theatrics After DA’s Warning About Illegal Gun Control

Fri, 01/25/2019 - 14:23
We have been reporting for some time on efforts by Pittsburgh’s mayor and city council to enact sweeping gun control, despite essentially universal agreement that they are prohibited from doing so by the state’s constitution, statutes, and judicial precedent. To say the errant officials have reacted to the widespread criticism of their plan with defiance and shamelessness is an understatement. This week, Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto ratcheted up his grandstanding even further, daring Allegheny County’s anti-gun district attorney to arrest him and claiming to be “highly offended” at the suggestion he can’t simply ignore state law.
