Someone Should Tell Joe Biden: More Crime Is Committed With Shot Guns Than "Assault Weapons"

Universal Background Checks Are A Good Way To Deny A Lot Of People Their 2nd Amendment Rights

One of President Obama’s gun control proposals announced after the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary (though a proposal which wouldn’t have done anything to stop that shooting) is universal background checks for all gun exchanges except those between relatives.

Groupon Agrees To Stop Gun-Related Deals

Gun control activists will claim that they’re not out to grab your guns, or prevent law-abiding citizens from exercising their second amendment rights.

Heitkamp Wants National Gun Violence Commission

Those wanting to give Senator Heidi Heitkamp credit for standing up for President Obama on the gun control issue might want to subject her statement in response to the President’s gun control agenda announced yesterday.
