So sick of guns. Just sick of them.

I am so glad the Dems are going toe to toe with the NRA this year. When Erica Smegielski, daughter of the slain Sandy Hook principal, looked around the hall and said she wanted to be home watching the DNC on TV with her mother, that she would give up every day she had left for one more day with her mother — well, I about lost it. Because every damn day, someone in my city gets shot and killed, and it’s time we stopped it.

While Obama Was Eulogizing Slain Cops, GOP Pushes This Horrible NRA Demand For Party Platform

Morning shooters. Today we are going after the H&K G36. It's been stiring up a lot of controversy over it's main fallacy. The rifle is a German made assault rifle & also used as the Squad automatic weapon when you throw in a 100rd drum and switch the sele

Republicans Want Bigger Gun Magazines In Their Platform After Vicious Attack On Dallas Police At the same time the country was mourning the tragedy in Dallas with President Obama delivering another moving speech after yet another mass shooting, Republicans in Cleveland were deciding parts of their party platform.

‘I Would Like to Address Gun Fanatics & Their Ridiculous Pro-Gun Propaganda’

I’ve reached my limit when it comes to people who can’t even attempt to be the slightest bit rational or reasonable about sensible gun regulations. style=”display:inline-block;width:336px;height:280px” data-ad-client=”ca-pub-8278450341216875″ data-ad-slot=”5978848991″> When I say “sensible,” that does not mean I support gun confiscations.

No bill, no break

Just some more gun enthusiasts!

Two men in their 50s and a woman in her 20s from Pennsylvania were stopped in New Jersey this morning after a traffic stop revealed they were carrying a huge weapons cache inside their car. Apparently these folks weren’t guilty of driving while Muslim, amirite? Guess what all they found? Multiple handguns, long-range weapons, bulletproof vests,… Continue Reading →

SCOTUS: NRA can’t challenge local gun laws

2010 SHOT Show - Media Day at the Range - The New Gen4 Glock 19

This was one of the big ALEC-sponsored laws. I am happy it got the treatment it deserved:

HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Monday declined to reinstate a law that gave the National Rifle Association the right to challenge local gun-control rules in court.

The Commonwealth Court overturned the law last year on the ground that the legislative process used to make it had violated the constitution. The gun provision had been added to a bill that addressed the theft of metals.

“The Supreme Court unanimously agreed with what the Commonwealth Court unanimously found: that the legislature violated the single-subject rule in an effort to pass an unpopular and irrational bill without being noticed,” said Sen. Daylin Leach (D., Montgomery), who led the lawsuit challenging the law.

House Speaker Mike Turzai and Senate President Pro Tem Joe Scarnati had appealed the Commonwealth Court ruling. Drew Crompton, the Senate GOP general counsel, said he assumed Republicans would try again to pass such a proposal, adding that some towns were going overboard in regulating gun sales.

One week after the tragic shooting at an Orlando gay bar, John Oliver directed his ire at the National Rifle Association and its allied legislators, who have argued that stricter gun measures will not decrease shooting deaths. Then Oliver turned to the NRA’s efforts to distort information on guns and gun violence. “Yes, it’s the old… Continue Reading →
