And In New Zealand…

After Multiple Reports About New Zealanders Turning In Guns, Guess How Many Actually Did It?

Not so many…

In spite of what the LameStream media is lying about…




We’re being lied to about New Zealand…………..

Media, Anti-Gun Left Go Full Tilt for Gun Control

Then there’s New Zealand.

As if there weren’t enough gun battles to fight in this country, the media is now trying to use a horrible tragedy abroad as an excuse for more gun control here.

The Daily Caller is running an opinion editorial that I authored today, detailing the misinformation and misreporting that the media is circulating in the aftermath of what happened in New Zealand.

Here are the three main points, which can be seen in my Daily Caller article here:

1. New Zealand has far greater gun control than we have in the United States. More gun control has not made people any safer.

2. The killer broke off the attack, only after being confronted with a weapon. It’s not your typical “good guy with a gun” story, but lives were still saved — and few outlets have mentioned it.

3. There is documented evidence that media reporting on mass shootings has actually fueled great anger and mayhem and … death.

On this last point, how convenient that the media avoids any accountability by shifting the focus away from themselves and, instead, are calling for Second Amendment restrictions.

Several media outlets are falsely claiming that Australia’s gun confiscation lowered crime rates and stopped mass shootings from occurring.

And they make these claims, hoping to gin up support for a ban on commonly-owned firearms here.

But both of these assertions are false, as my article shows.

One thing is for sure, however. Given that New Zealand already registers semi-automatic firearms, officials will now have a target list which they can turn into a gun confiscation list.

And just as gun confiscation failed to stop mass killings and mass shootings in Australia, it will most certainly not make the people any safer in New Zealand.

Both of these countries are reminders that the anti-gun Left will keep pushing for gun control until they get their desired goal — gun confiscation.

That is why we cannot compromise. And here at Gun Owners of America, we will not compromise.

Some Republicans now want gun confiscation….

It’s been said quite often that Republicans are the “Stupid Party.”

Based on what Graham is doing, one would think he’s planning to forfeit control of the Senate to the Democrats and to lose the White House in 2020.  Because he is holding a hearing to promote the nastiest form of Bloomberg-sponsored gun control.

As it turns out, Graham and his new “best buddy,” anti-gun zealot Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), are scheduling a hearing on Gun Confiscation Orders — sugar-coated as “red-flag laws” — on March 26 of this month.

Gun Confiscation “red-flag” Orders were drafted and are being promoted nationally by Leftist anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg.

They would allow an angry relative or the police to make a telephone call to a judge. And, based on that telephone call, the judge can issue an order stripping you of your Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights — all without your knowledge.

The first thing you would learn about it is when the SWAT Team arrived at your door in the middle of the night — ready to ransack your home and, if you resisted, to arrest or shoot you.

Let’s make one thing perfectly clear:  Gun Confiscation Orders would not have stopped ANY mass shooting in American history — and they do NOTHING to reduce homicides, suicides, crime, or mass shootings.

Gun Confiscation “red-flag” laws have been proven to be ineffective:

  • They were in effect in Connecticut at the time of the Newtown shooting in 2012.
  • They had long been in effect in California during the Thousand Oaks massacre last year.
  • And they were in effect in Illinois during the Aurora shooting earlier this year.

In fact, criminologist John Lott has conducted the definitive study of Gun Confiscation Orders.

He found that red flag laws have been an utter failure when it comes to lowering crime rates:

  • They do not reduce homicides;
  • They do not reduce suicides;
  • They do not reduce mass shootings;
  • They do not reduce crime of any kind; and
  • They may even INCREASE the incidence of rape.

So if red flag laws don’t make people safer, what are they good for?  In short, they are just another effort by gun-hater Bloomberg to “put points on the board.”

To date, only two key Senate bills imposing Gun Confiscation Orders have been introduced (S. 7 and S. 506). But more such bills are expected.

So now is the time to contact your Senators and demand that they oppose this dangerous legislation.
