White House press secretary Jay Carney doubled down on the White Houses’s stance on gun control, saying that a gun control bill WILL pass, it’s just a matter of time.
Carney once again brought up the flawed 90% of Americans support this statistic yet again, even as a new USA Today poll shows waning support for gun control.
Bill Maher thinks the Constitution is full of “sh**.”
The far left entertainer wants both the Second Amendment and equal representation in the Senate struck from the United States Constitution because parts of the Constitution are “bullish**” and it “needs a page one rewrite.”
“So much of it [Constitution] does need a page-one rewrite, including that bullsh** about the Senate and the Second Amendment,” he said during his HBO show “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday. ”Both of them should go and a lot of other sh** in there,” he said.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts police official say the brothers suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon before having shootouts with authorities didn’t have gun permits.
Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas tells The Associated Press in an interview Sunday that neither Tamerlan Tsarnaev (tsahr-NEYE’-ehv) nor his brother Dzhokhar had permission to carry firearms.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Blocked by Congress from expanding gun sale background checks, President Barack Obama is turning to actions within his own power to keep people from buying a gun who are prohibited for mental health reasons.
Federal law bans certain mentally ill people from purchasing firearms, but not all states are providing data to stop the prohibited sales to the FBI’s background check system. A federal review last year found 17 states contributed fewer than 10 mental health records to the database, meaning many deemed by a judge to be a danger still could have access to guns.
Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) is threatening to file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he moves to change gun regulations through executive order.
“I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment,” Stockman said.
In a statement, Stockman didn’t hold back, saying Obama is launching an “attack on the very founding principles of this republic.”
After 20+ years using the Beretta M9, known as the 92FS in the civilian community, the Marine Corps is going back the the battle-proven stopping power and accuracy of the 1911 .45acp.
The M9 has faced decades of criticism for its lack of stopping power, reliability issues and accuracy problems. Now, the Marines are fighting back against the changeover to the tiny 9mm round.
With more than twice the mass of the 9mm lugar cartridge, the .45acp hits like an 800+ FPS sledgehammer and the gun fires reliably regardless of the environment. The 1911 is also one of the most successful guns in history at the Camp Perry National Match. John Browning’s original design stands the test of time.
“This is a message to every member of law enforcement and the military,” a sizzling new YouTube video begins. “You know you have a choice to make.”
The video, produced by a man identified on Facebook as Aaron Hawkins, is a challenge to those who enforce America’s laws, warning them the day is coming when gun-control legislation will undermine the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment and police forces will be asked to restrict or even confiscate American citizens’ firearms.
Several gun sellers found their Facebookpages gone after Vocativ reported that someone had won an AR-15 rifle through a sweepstakes on the social media site. According to Facebook, the promotion violated their rules against selling weapons and ammunition, but Erik Lowry of Pittsburgh Tactical Firearms in Pittsburgh, Penn., told Examiner Saturday that nothing was being sold on the page.
RICHMOND (KPIX 5) — A nationwide shortage of ammunition has forced several police departments, including Richmond, to find a backup solution for training rounds. Officers said the solution is just as effective as live ammo, not to mention cheaper.
“Everybody is fighting for what is seems like a shrinking amount of ammunition out there,” said Lt. Louie Tirona, firearms and tactics instructor for the Richmond Police Department.
The Colorado Secretary of State today signed off on recall petitions for two more lawmakers over their gun votes, for Democratic Sens. Angela Giron of Pueblo and Evie Hudak of Westminster.
