Extremist Liberals Will Use Your Kids' Schools to Eliminate the 2nd Amendment

By Rick Pearcey • May 2, 2018, 03:23 PM

Warner Todd Huston writes at Constitution.com:

If you love the U.S. Constitution, your politics are center right. But you WILL be the last generation to live under the law of the land because you are sitting idly by and allowing people who hate America to teach your children that the Constitution needs to be destroyed.

This is no hyperbole.

Three separate incidents have occurred this week that more or less proves that our schools have now thrown away any pretense to being "teachers" of our children and have become little else but liberal indoctrinators.

"On the tail of two months of teachers and school administrators all across the country and in every state sponsoring student walkouts to attack our Second Amendment," Huston continues, "we also see these same people working to put an end to the First Amendment. Kids are learning how to hate the U.S.A. and you are paying for this with your taxes, folks."

Gun Seller Calls Out Dick's Sporting Goods on AR-15s

By Rick Pearcey • March 2, 2018, 02:47 PM

Scott Morefield reports at the Daily Caller:

One gun seller isn't happy with Dick's Sporting Goods decision to agree to the demands of gun control advocates.

Palmetto State Armory, a Columbia, South Carolina-based firearms company, went on record in support of the Second Amendment on Thursday, issuing a statement calling out Dick's for referring to the AR platform as an "assault rifle" instead of the correct term — Armalite Rifle — and for caving to the demands of gun control proponents.

The Palmetto State Armory statement was a strong rejection of the propensity to blame the "tool" instead of the perpetrator, and included a call to "approach this negativity with humanity" with the hope that both sides can "have a civil and intellectual conversation that continues to make this amazing country better."

What follows is the Palmetto State Armory statement, as published at WCBD -- TV Channel 2 in Mount Pleasant, S.C.:

Palmetto State Armory [PSA] would like to go on record stating that we support the Second Amendment. While this may seem like an obvious statement, we as a company felt it necessary to make our opinion known to the general public. Palmetto State Armory also strongly supports the First Amendment which enables individuals to voice their opinions, even those in contrast with our own. We believe that a primary purpose of the Second Amendment is actually to protect the First Amendment.

In regards to the actions taken today by the CEO of Dick's Sporting Goods to no longer sell the AR-15 platform, while we do not agree with this decision, we recognize the fact that capitalism gives him the right to make this call. PSA however, does have an issue when misinformation is spread in the very next sentence by referring to the platform as an "assault rifle." AR stands for Armalite Rifle which pays homage to the company that originally created the platform.

To blame the rifle or a high capacity magazine for the actions of an evil man is illogical and is only applied when referring to firearms. Senseless acts of violence are a terrible plague on society that we all recognize we need to try and prevent as a community, but to blame a tool such as a firearm is at very best missing the point of the problem.

When a vehicle is used to commit an act of violence we as a society do not blame the car, we do not blame the speed, or the steering wheel, but rather the driver. It is our hopes that we can approach this negativity with humanity and both sides of the argument can come together and have a civil and intellectual conversation that continues to make this amazing county better.

"We are all in this together, and we all want the same thing," the Palmetto statement concludes. "Safety, happiness, and the 'American Dream'."

Rep. Scalise, Shot in June, Defends 2nd Amendment

By Rick Pearcey • October 5, 2017, 08:33 AM

Susan Jones reports at CNSNews.com:

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), seriously injured when a gunman opened fire at a baseball practice in June, is back on Capitol Hill this week, sending prayers to the victims of another gunman in Las Vegas and standing up for the Second Amendment.

Sitting with his fellow lawmakers who came to his rescue on June 14, Scalise told Fox News's Martha McCallum on Wednesday that he has not changed his mind on the Second Amendment:

"You know, what happened in my case, you had people on site to immediately encounter the shooter and take him down.

"And that happens everyday in America, where regular citizens that have their own guns because of the Second Amendment protection, are able to defend themselves against criminals."

"Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas) said the Second Amendment is not about target shooting or hunting," Jones reports and then quotes the congressman as saying: "The Second Amendment is about an armed people to stand up to tyranny from a government that they would be opposed to. So we need to couch the Second Amendment in its proper light."

"Provocative" NRA Video: Why Women Own Guns

By Rick Pearcey • March 3, 2017, 01:55 PM

Susannah Breslin writes at Forbes:

For women, is owning a gun a feminist act?

The NRA says: You bet.

A provocative new video from the National Rifle Association, the country's hard-charging advocate for gun rights, argues that women who buy firearms are engaged in an act of self-empowerment.

The video, "Why Women Own Guns," is the latest episode of NRATV's newly launched firearms-focused The DL program, hosted by Dana Loesch, a Democrat turned conservative commentator and author of Hands Off My Gun: Defeating the Plot to Disarm America.

"The Left loves to talk about empowering women, but the real litmus test for that is your support for the Second Amendment," Loesch says in opening Why Women Own Guns. "Because if you don't support a women's right to choose to defend herself against a rapist with a firearm, you don't support women. Period."

I recommend this video to my family and yours.

Watch Why Women Own Guns.

Army Special Forces Veteran-Owned Coffee Company Hits Back at Starbucks: Video

By Rick Pearcey • February 8, 2017, 12:46 PM

Fox News reports:

In response to Starbucks announcing it would hire 10,000 refugees to protest President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration, one veteran has a different plan.

Evan Hafer, an Army Special Forces veteran and CEO of Black Rifle Coffee Company, said he would hire 10,000 veterans.

"Our plan is to build 600 stores in the next six years. I'm gonna try to push this forward with the community behind me," Hafer said yesterday on Fox & Friends.

"According to January 2017 data from the Department of Labor, there is a 6.3 percent post 9/11 veteran unemployment rate in the country," FoxNews reports.

Hafer says "he would be mostly hiring from this group but would extend to Gulf War veterans as well if need be," according to Fox.

"Black Rifle Coffee Company was founded two years ago and has a more than 50 percent hiring rate of veterans as employees," Fox reports. 

How did combat combine with coffee to enter the marketplace battlefield? Hafer explains:

I started Black Rifle Coffee Company to provide a high-quality, roast-to-order coffee to the pro 2A [2nd Amendment] and veteran communities.

Between deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I was working to refine both my coffee roasting skills and my firearms skills.

I have spent over a decade researching coffee, refining my roast profiles and (of course) drinking what I roast.

Black Rifle Coffee is quite literally the combination of my two favorite passions. I take pride in the coffee we roast, the veterans we employ, and the causes we support.

Not surprisingly, therefore: "Hiring vets is not PR for me. It's who we are," Hafer says.

To learn more about Black Rifle Coffee Company, visit the website (which is outstanding which would be outstanding, for example, if Black Rifle Coffee Company drops profanity from the names of some of its coffee offerings -- update, March 5, 2017).

Ohio State University Leaders Silent After Pro-2nd Amendment Student Murdered

By Rick Pearcey • January 11, 2017, 11:33 AM

Mikenzie Tremblay reports at The College Fix:

It's been five days since a Buckeye was gunned down in what police say is a drug-related murder and the first homicide in Columbus in 2017.

Yet Ohio State campus leaders have appeared to largely ignore that one of their own has died: Tarak Underiner, a 20-year-old marketing and Spanish major and treasurer of Buckeyes for Concealed Carry on Campus.

"This stands in stark contrast to campus leadership's typical standard operating procedure when the university is hit by tragedy or other big news," Tremblay writes.

Where Clinton and Trump Stand -- on Every Major Issue

By Rick Pearcey • October 26, 2016, 10:31 AM

John Perazzo writes at Frontpagemag.com:

In poll after poll, a majority of American voters have reported that they hold an "unfavorable" opinion of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Nevertheless, there are enormous differences in the policy positions which these two candidates embrace.

Following is a comprehensive overview of exactly what their positions and agendas are, with regard to the major issues confronting the United States.

In some instances, background information is provided in italicized print, so as to place the candidates' positions in proper context.

Go here to see the candidates' positions on the following:

Syrian refugees; immigration, amnesty, and borders; sanctuary cities; 2nd Amendment; Obamacare; healthcare and illegal aliens; ISIS and terrorism; the Supreme Court; voter ID laws; early voting and voter registration; felon voting rights; taxes; death tax and corporate tax; minimum wage; Clinton and the 2008 financial crisis; Social Security; infrastructure spending; school-to-prison; school vouchers; preschool for all; "free" college; partial-birth abortion; taxypayer funding for abortion; reforming criminal justice; releasing "non-violent" offenders; voting rights; climate change; climate change and solar panels; fracking; and gender "pay gap."

Not included in the above is the difference between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump regarding that species of human freedom specified as "religious freedom." On this, please see, "Hillary Clinton Is No Champion of Religious Freedom: It's Laughable That She Pretends to Be Otherwise. And here, Trump supports Sen. Mike Lee's "Bill to Protect Religious Liberty."

3 Problems With Hillary Clinton -- We Cannot Fight "Violence and Terrorism" Without Gun Control

By Rick Pearcey • September 23, 2016, 03:00 PM

A.W.R. Hawkins writes at Breitbart:

In response to questions from AARP Bulletin, Hillary Clinton made clear her position that to be successful, policies for ending terrorism must include gun control for all Americans. [emphasis added]

According to Hawkins, Clinton responded by making the fight against terrorism a part of the fight again "violence":

Well, these are legitimate fears. I believe that people are rightly concerned about violence. Terrorism is part of that violence, and we have to do the best job we can to keep America safe. So I've laid out a very comprehensive plan about taking on the terrorists, going after them where they operate, doing everything we can to take away their territories so they can’t mastermind attacks from afar.

And she also said, according to Hawkins:

But I'm looking at violence broadly. . . . It's also why I've advocated gun-safety reform, like comprehensive background checks, closing the gun-show loophole, closing the online loophole -- because, you know, it's not only terrorists we need to be worried about. Terrorism is part of it, but gun violence kills 33,000 Americans a year. . . . We've got to get serious about stemming violence and terrorism in every way we can.

Hawkins notes several weaknesses in Clinton's position.

First, there is the problem of California, which "has comprehensive background checks," Hawkins writes. "Therefore, the state does not have a 'gun-show loophole' or an 'online loophole.' But they did have the December 12, 2015, firearm-based terror attack and the more recent high profile murder-suicide on the UCLA campus on June 1, 2016."

Second, there is the problem of Paris, France, which "has background checks that are even more comprehensive than those in California," Hawkins states. In addition, "Paris has no 'gun-show loophole' or 'online loophole,' but they did have 12 people killed in a January 7, 2015, firearm-based terror attack and another 130 killed in the November 13, 2015, firearm-based terror attack."

Third, there is the problem of Clinton's gun-violence statistics. "Clinton consistently makes the false claim that 33,000 Americans are killed by gun violence each year," Hawkins observes. "She initiated this claim in a political ad that first ran in April. Breitbart News responded by showing 66 percent of the 33,000 deaths cited by Clinton were actually suicides."

Here's how, according to Hawkins, Clinton arrives at her inflated, misleading figure of 33,000. "The overall number of firearm-related deaths in 2013 was approximately 32,888," Hawkins writes. "Of these, the number of accidental deaths was 505, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported the number of deaths due to actual 'gun violence' was 11,208."

"When Clinton repeats these numbers, she adds accidental deaths [505] and homicides [11,208] -- which equal 11,713 -- then adds the 21,175 firearm-related suicides," and "rounds the number off at 33,000." Clinton then "names 'gun violence' as the cause for all these things," Hawkins explains.

Hawkins concludes: "This swells the number of gun violence victims in an attempt by Clinton to justify more gun control."

NRA Hits Back at New York Daily News, "Godless Left"

By Rick Pearcey • December 15, 2015, 09:23 AM

Sandy Fitzgerald reports at Newsmax:

The National Rifle Association is firing back at the New York Daily News for its "God Isn't Fixing This" headline after the San Bernardino shootings, aiming a video at the newspaper and the "Godless Left" in a wide-ranging attack on its "global alliance of elitists and media activists and Hollywood celebrities and campus radicals and political power mongers."

The video, narrated by conservative pundit Dana Loesch, and sponsored by gun maker Kimber, . . . [lambastes] people on the left "who have openly attacked sacred American values and the people who cherish them with ruthlessness, contempt and downright hatred," reports the Washinton Post.

"These people, Loesch says, share 'the same fanatical fervor to tear apart the foundations of America as the terrorists who threaten our very survival'," Newsmax reports.

"And the New York newspaper, says Loesch in the video," according to Newsmax, 'became the loudest, vilest, most condescending voice for what many people call the Godless Left.'

"'These false prophets at this failing excuse for a newspaper claimed to enjoy special knowledge of God's plans somehow . . . even as they mocked the entire concept of religion," Newsmax quotes Loesch as saying. 

"But as most Americans turned to prayer for the wounded and the world," Newsmax states, "political and media elites joined forces to insult and mock and disparage them . . . and in so doing, laid bare the utter moral depravity of the Godless Left," Loesch is quoted as saying.

"Loesch doesn't only speak of the shootings and the newspaper," Newsmax reports, "but ties in Benghazi and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, calling her the 'queen of the movement'."

"Duck Dynasty" Cousin Zach Dasher Running for Congress

By Rick Pearcey • June 17, 2014, 11:23 AM

Myarklamiss.com reports that Zach Dasher, whose "mom is the sister of 'Duck Commander' Phil Robertson," has "announced that he will run for Congress in Louisiana's Fifth Congressional District."

"It is time for ordinary citizens to get off of the sidelines and get involved in the political system," Dasher is quoted as saying as he officially launched his "first time to run for public office," according to Myarklamiss.com.

"For too long," Dasher said, "we've set idly by while Washington politicians slowly gain control over every aspect of our lives. I am seeking to represent the people of the 5th District in Congress so that I can effectively fight the big government intellectual elitists in Washington." 

Dasher is a Republican with a "background in the pharmaceutical industry. He also has been involved in the real estate business and with fundraising for non-profit organizations," according to Myarklamiss.com.

"Zach and his wife of 13 years, Jil, have four children," are "members of White's Ferry Road Church of Christ," and are "active in campus ministry at ULM with University Church of Christ," Myarklamiss.com reports.

In a press statement released by his campaign, Dasher also said: 

* Man is made in the image of the Almighty God. If we are afraid to say that, then we don’t have a case for liberty. Our rights do not come from a bunch of elite politicians in Washington, D.C. They come from the Almighty God. [See also the U.S. Declaration of Independence]

* We did not send people to Washington to determine our rights. We sent them there to defend our rights, but that’s not what they’re doing. They’re taking them away, day by day. They’re forcing us to purchase their healthcare insurance because they think they know better than we do when it comes to managing our private lives.

* There are many third- and fourth-generation farmers in the Fifth District. The EPA believes it knows how to run our farms better than local farmers. The federal government is trying to control every patch of farmland in Louisiana that has a ditch or a puddle. This nonsense must stop, and I’m going to lead the fight against it in Washington. 

Myarklamiss.com also reports that "Dasher is pro-life and is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. He favors adoption of a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, an overhaul of the Department of Veterans Affairs, and a strong U.S. military."

For more information on Zach Dasher, see FacebookTwitter, and his campaign website.

Sonic Restaurant Robbed Same Day Gun Ban Announced

By Rick Pearcey • June 2, 2014, 11:56 AM

A.W.R. Hawkins reports at Breitbart:

Breitbart News reported that Sonic restaurants asked law-abiding "customers [to] refrain from bringing guns" to their restaurants on May 30.

On that same day, according to the Topeka Capital Journal, two individuals who may have realized law-abiding citizens were unarmed walked into a Topeka, Kansas, Sonic and robbed it. 

According to police, the suspects are two black males, both of whom were wearing hoodies and white pants. 

"This same thing happened to Jack in the Box once they asked law-abiding citizens to quit carrying guns in their restaurants," Breitbart reports.

Let us therefore ask: If criminals can read, is it entirely unexpected that gun-free zones might become crime-spree zones?

And not just in restaurants, but in theaters, schools, homes, and, well, just about any place people gather? This applies to nations, as well, which sometimes go "off the rail."

Ben Carson: 2nd Amendment Needed in Case Gov’t Goes "Off the Rail"

By Rick Pearcey • May 28, 2014, 10:29 AM

Michael Chapman reports at CNSNews.com:

Dr. Ben Carson, author and retired pediatric neurosurgeon, said the "real reason" the Founding Fathers created the Second Amendment was because they knew it was possible for our government to "go off the rail" and try to  "dominate the people" and the citizens would need the means to protect themselves.

National Tea Party Group to Endorse Nancy Mace Against Lindsey Graham

By Rick Pearcey • August 14, 2013, 12:13 PM

Matthew Boyle reports at Breitbart:

The Tea Party Leadership Fund has decided to endorse Nancy Mace, a conservative challenger to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), in the upcoming GOP Senate primary in the state, Breitbart News nas learned. . . .

Mace appeared on Breitbart News Sunday with Stephen K. Bannon this weekend to discuss why she is running, her history as a small business owner, and being the first woman to graduate from The Citadel. She said the military environment she was brought up in will help her stick to conservative principles if South Carolina voters send her to Washington in place of Graham.

"Do you bend your values and your principles to conform to the quote-unquote establishment to go along to get along, or do you stay firm and stay strong in what you believe in to be successful?" Mace said of her Citadel military history. "And I learned the latter."

According to her campaign website, the following indicates where Mace stands on the role of government, the 2nd Amendment, and the right to life:

Role of Government: "Our Founding Fathers created a constitution intended to be a guide for the decisions a government accountable to the people would make. The problem we face today, however, is that the government has overreached its boundaries into nearly every corner of our lives, and yet we are still not better off for it. . . .

"The politicians don’t understand, they don’t decide what rights we get to have and what rights we lose. Our Rights come from our Creator and are guaranteed by our Constitution."

2nd Amendment: "My father was a decorated combat veteran, and lifelong hunter who taught me how to handle a firearm at an early age. Hunting trips with my father provided priceless memories, but our second amendment rights have a deeper purpose than sport and the right to defend our homes and property. We have a duty as a free people to protect against tyranny."

Right to Life: "As it is rightly stated in the Declaration of Independence, we should all have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I do not believe it was an accident that our Founders listed life as the first of our God given rights. As a pro-life conservative I believe we should defend life and liberty from conception to natural death."

In Feinstein’s "Harvey Milk" Gun Control Speech, No Mention of Her .38 Special

By Rick Pearcey • March 15, 2013, 09:52 AM

Charles C. Johnson reports at The Daily Caller:

California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein made an impassioned call for gun control during a Capitol Hill hearing Thursday, recalling putting her fingers into bullet wounds on the body of slain gay activist Harvey Milk.

But the gun that did the killing -- a .38 special -- doesn’t appear on the list of firearms she wants the federal government to ban.

And Feinstein carried the same model revolver in her purse for nearly four years after the attack. [emphasis added]

"'When you come from where I’ve come from and what you’ve seen, when you found a dead body and put your finger in bullet holes, you really realize the impact of weapons,' the California Democrat told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Thursday, after a pointed exchange with Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz about the Second Amendment," The Daily Caller reports.

CNN's Piers Morgan: Death Threats Over Gun Control?

By Rick Pearcey • March 4, 2013, 11:46 PM

That's Piers Morgan's complaint. And he should not receive death threats.

But Mr. Morgan needs to awaken from dogmatic slumber: Gun control itself is a death threat -- and a rape threat. And a tyranny threat.

And it's a death threat not on the one, but on the many.

Wake up, Mr. Morgan. Wake up.

At a Friday event billed as a Black History Month press conference, Star Parker said African Americans in Congress who support gun control efforts by President Barack Obama and his administration should consider the history of blacks in this country and people around the globe who were oppressed, including being banned from owning firearms.

"Parker said her organization held the event to allow black leaders 'to express our deep concern of efforts currently under way to limit our God-given and constitutional right of self-defense'," reports CNSNews.com.

"The gun control laws that banned or put restrictions on African Americans from owning firearms in the United States are documented on a timeline from 1640 to 1995 by the National Rifle Association’s Institute of Legislative Action and can be found here," reports CNSNews.com.

Crowd Packs Heat, City Backs Down

By Rick Pearcey • February 8, 2013, 08:39 AM

Chris Sullivan reports at MyNorthwest.com:

It's been three weeks since an Oak Harbor city councilmember started a national controversy by trying to kick out a wounded Army veteran who was legally carrying a weapon during a council meeting.

Councilmember Rick Almberg then walked out.

The council was met by 160 people Tuesday night, many who were packing heat.

"There were handguns in holsters and rifles slung over shoulders and an unknown number of people concealing their weapons as the Oak Harbor City Council met," Sullivan reports.

"Many attended the meeting to show support for veteran Lucas Yonkman who Councilmember Almberg tried to have kicked out of City Hall last month, including Joe Hawkins who openly mocked him," according to Sullivan.

"Mr. Almberg I just want you to know that I have a concealed ham sandwich right here. I don't want you to get up and walk away," Mr. Hawkins is quoted as saying.

Video: Immigrant to Conn. Gun Panel -- "Few saw the 3rd Reich coming until it was too late"

By Rick Pearcey • January 31, 2013, 11:33 AM

Jason Howerton reports at The Blaze:

During a public hearing on gun violence in Hartford, Conn. on Monday, a legal immigrant by the name of Henson Ong issued a passionate defense of the Second Amendment and argued that gun control simply "does not work."

The video of Ong’s testimony has already surpassed 130,000 views on YouTube. . . .

"Your own history is replete with high school rifle teams, boy scout marksmanship merit badges," he explained. "You could buy rifles at hardware stores, you could order them . . . your country was awash in readily available firearms and ammunition, and yet in your past you did not have mass school shootings."

"What changed?" he asked. "It was not that the availability of guns suddenly exploded or increased, it actually was decreased. What changed was societal decay," he added, resulting in more applause.

In his conclusion, Ong quoted Judge Alex Kozinski in his 2002 dissent in the case of Silveira v. Lockye

"My excellent colleagues have forgotten these bitter lessons of history," Ong quoted Kozinski.

"The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime usually do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late," Ong continued.

"The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed only for those exceptionally rare circumstances when all other rights have failed," Ong read.

"A free people can only afford to make this mistake once."

Here is Youtube video of Henson Ong testifying on gun control at a public hearing in Hartford, Conn.

Communist Party Cheers Obama Gun Control

By Rick Pearcey • January 26, 2013, 12:36 PM

William F. Jasper writes at Infowars:

It should come as no surprise that the Communist Party USA is on board with President Obama’s plan to attack Americans’ right to keep and bear arms as a means to "end gun violence." A cardinal feature of communist regimes, like all dictatorships, is the prohibition of private ownership of arms, creating a monopoly of force in the hands of the State.

In a January 18 article, People’s World, an official publication of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), declared that "the ability to live free from the fear or threat of gun violence is a fundamental democratic right
-- one that far supercedes any so-called personal gun rights allegedly contained in the Second Amendment."

"The American Founding Fathers . . . recognized that the armed private citizen is the ultimate check and balance against the centralized monopoly of force which invariably turns tyrannical and deadly," Jasper writes.

Why the 2nd Amendment? "The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed"
