Then they are encouraged that Secretary of […]

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. San Francisco Declares NRA a ‘Terrorist Organization’

 

Guess that makes me a “terrorist” by their definition. According to The San Francisco Gate:

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution on Tuesday declaring that the National Rifle Association is a domestic terrorist organization. The officials also urged other cities, states and the federal government to follow suit.

In light of the recent tragedies that both involved weapons that caused the deaths of dozens in a matter of minutes, it occurred to me that the gun argument falls flat for this reason: The law-abiding citizen who passed the background check, has a carry license and is shopping for shampoo and cat food will […]

Now I have a question for 2A supporters. I have been a member of the NRA for a long time. Have thought about a lifetime membership, but could not ever afford it: I think I still have a year left on my last NRA renewal. More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America recoil at the synagogue shooting in southern California but also honor the heroes who made sure the attack was not far deadlier.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America recoil at the mass murder of 49 Muslims in New Zealand, the radical manifesto that came with it, and the aggravating tendency of politicians and activists to claim instantly that an attack vindicates their existing political positions. They also slam Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for mocking […]

Next week the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives will take another swipe at gun owners in the guise of universal background checks. One of the main reasons that the NRA opposes this legislation is that it doesn’t stop criminals from acquiring guns. If we would enforce the legislation already on the books, the […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Gun Owners Are Being Othered, And We’re Letting It Happen

 

In the wake of the horrific shooting in Las Vegas, “bump stocks” became the cause célèbre of the gun control crowd. A bump stock, to be honest, is a rather silly device that attaches to the back of a rifle which allows you to rapidly increase the rate of fire of the gun, letting it mimic the effect of a fully-automatic rifle. Bump stocks specifically designed to get around the restrictions on civilian ownership of fully-automatic firearm that were imposed by the passage the National Firearms Act and the Hughes Amendment, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives decided (at President Trump’s urging) that they made a mistake back in 2010, and such things shouldn’t be in civilian hands.

The fact that you can replicate automatic fire with training and practice, (or even with something as prosaic as a belt loop) seems to be lost on the BATFE, but that’s a topic for another time.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are not thrilled to see that alleged Russian spy Maria Butina conned Obama administration officials, but they do welcome the evidence that Russia was infiltrating everywhere and not just getting cozy with the GOP. They also sigh as the Tax Foundation concludes that President […]

If we have to listen to the blame aimed at the NRA for the actions of a crazed individual, can’t we point an accusatory finger at the NEA as well? They are the thugs who run the state-enforced monopoly of public schools that are producing these bullied, scared, sick children. It is certainly their fault […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. President Addresses the National Rifle Association

 

What, you were expecting someone else? President Reagan addressed the members of National Rifle Association at their annual convention two years after he was shot. He had real skin in the game, literally. He spoke out of two decades of careful deliberation on American politics, challenged and refined by a near-death experience.

Well for me this was a first. This morning I took the wife for her initial visit to a neurosurgeon, his hair was just beginning to gray. He has a good reputation, is part of the Vanderbilt system, and his medical questions and the way he conducted the exam I appreciated. His plans for follow-up and […]

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Is Trump Turning on NRA? Yes, No, or Meh?

 

So in my daily perusal of news, I came across the following article:

“I don’t want mentally ill people to be having guns,” he says in the clip below. So far, so good: No one wants people who are unstable to be armed, even knowing that only a small percentage of the mentally ill are violent. But we have due process for a reason. If the state could strip you of your rights by declaring you “sick,” without a formal adjudication, the potential abuses are endless. Trump doesn’t seem to care, though. He says at one point here that the cops should have taken the Parkland killer’s weapons whether they had the right or not.

President Trump is hearing from all sides, hosting law enforcement, governors, as well as students and parents. I heard on the radio part of his discussion with Diane Feinstein and other […]
