Yeah, sure…Pull that one out of her ass did she??
If you ask a leftist about the facts of when life begins, he or she will call you a sexist and claim you hate healthy women.
If you ask a leftist about a reasonable, sustainable border reform policy, he or she will call you racist and xenophobic.
If you ask a leftist about the fact of a zero success rate for socialism, he or she will call you a greedy, compassionless crony.
If a leftist asks the wrong question about guns…
House Moves to Blame Gun Owners for Terrorism
by Michael Hammond
Words have significance.
This is why Hitler engaged Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels to pound out hate-filled language to stir up their facile minions.
Well, the Bloomberg/Giffords/Brady operation has the same thing. And their latest Goebbels-like creation is the concept of “ghost guns.”
No, “ghost guns” are not guns wielded by scary ghosts. Rather, they are firearms — or firearms parts or perhaps even firearms programs — which are made or conveyed for personal use and which do not therefore have a serial number.
This is currently legal.
But Bloomberg/Giffords/Brady want to make it illegal.
So they are trying to get personal guns defined as “ghost guns” in federal law. And then they are trying to commission a federal study to demonstrate that these personal guns are responsible for terrorism.
All of this would be contained in H.R. 2621, which was recently ordered to be reported to the full U.S. House by a committee voice vote.
Now, what about the particulars of the proposed new statutory definition of “ghost gun”?
We talked with an attorney who had litigated in this field, and what she told us was alarming.
Paragraph 2(b)(2) defines “ghost gun” to include any “frame or receiver” that “lacks a unique serial number.” It also includes any firearm, frame, or receiver that is “otherwise assembled, molded, machined, or 3D printed without … a unique serial number.”
What about “80% receivers”? Although they are arguably a “frame or receiver” under the 1968 Act, a long history of regulation and interpretation has exempted them from the serial number requirement.
Does the “otherwise” language in the new definition outlaw them? Do we want to risk this possibility?
One more thing: Also reported from committee by voice vote is H.R. 2383 which would prohibit FEMA funds from being used to arm teachers.
At a time when House Democrats are going into a frenzy in order to use horrific incidents of violence to pass irrelevant gun control, it is interesting how resolute they are in opposition to the one measure that has been demonstrated effective in protecting school children.
The anti-gun Left is, once again, out to shred the Second Amendment with a vengeance.
In the aftermath of a tragic shooting in Virginia Beach last week, anti-gun zealots are stepping over the dead bodies in their rush to grab the closest microphone.
They are calling for more gun control … more restrictions … more laws that will be ignored by criminals and only affect honest citizens.
In an article I authored for the Daily Caller this week, I noted how gun control actually helped the Virginia shooter commit his crime:
The Virginia Beach shooting effectively occurred in a gun-free zone. City employees are prohibited from carrying firearms, so they were sitting ducks when the killer chose them as the targets. This shooting is not an isolated incident, as almost 98% of the mass shootings that occur in this country occur in gun-free zones.
Fox News radio asked me what gun laws would have made a difference. I said that the Old Dominion needs to pass Constitutional Carry, as armed victims shooting back would have made a tremendous difference. (You can listen to the entire Fox News interview here.)
And then the President stepped into the fray when, speaking to the Brits this week about suppressors, said he “[doesn’t] like them at all” and will “seriously look” at banning them.
GOA responded to several media requests on this subject by articulating our opposition to the National Firearms Act, including its current restrictions on suppressors, and reiterating our commitment to “oppose any effort to further regulate or ban them.”
Deception and Disarmament
As you certainly know, the media is constantly misleading the American people. They have often claimed that Australia eliminated their mass shootings after confiscating guns in 1996-97.
But this has always been a lie. Case in point: Another mass murderer, in “gun free” Australia, just went on a shooting rampage this week.
If you’re wondering why you might not have heard about this in the news, it’s probably because the killer used … a shotgun! Of course, the victims were murdered, nonetheless, and no one was able to fight back because the entire country is a “gun free” zone.
Anyway, Governor Ralph “blackface” Northam is calling the Virginia legislature back into session to pass his gun control proposals. So if you live in Virginia, you will soon receive an action alert to oppose these gun control proposals and to push for Constitutional Carry instead.
More Gun Control in “Pelosi’s House”
At the federal level, various congressmen are using the Virginia tragedy to pursue calls for more gun control.
Two anti-gun bills that were recently sent to the floor of the House of Representatives could come up for a vote at any time:
- H.R. 2621 would commission a study to investigate “ghost guns” — which would be Nancy Pelosi’s first step to banning or registering any gun that, otherwise, could be legally assembled by a private individual; and,
- H.R. 2383 would prohibit FEMA funds from being used to arm teachers.

Because the suppressor killed!!
After the 2019 Legislature and all the gun control rhetoric and bills from the DFL party, they all failed, this is nice to see.
They are always delusional…
Eric Swalwell is nothing more than an opportunistic weasel who is spouting whatever he can in order to gain some degree of relevance within his own party. He’s polling in the decimal point range in a crowded field of Democrats. His name recognition is somewhere between Flo from Progressive and navel lint. He’s desperate.
He is pretty much a world-class liar on everything!!!
