Obama, Seriously Out Of Touch

December 9, 2015 by


By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Barack Obama wanted 15 minutes of air time on Sunday night, the most heavily watched night of the week, to speak to the nation about the San Bernardino shooting. It was appropriate for the president to request it, and for the networks to grant it, but everyone knew […]

Even Hard-Left Politifact Criticized The New ‘Definition’ Of ‘Mass Shooting’ Two Months Ago

December 7, 2015 by


By Tom Blumer ~ As shown early this morning, the press’s redefinition of the term “mass shooting” has turned into a nearly omnipresent meme virtually overnight in the wake of Wednesday’s Islamic terrorist massacre in San Bernardino, California.

The ‘God Isn’t Fixing This’ Liberal Media

December 6, 2015 by


By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ The first wave of analysis after the mass shooting in San Bernardino suggested that this could be a right-wing militia or anti-government conspiracy.

Media Blame Conservatives, NRA Before Knowing Anything About San Bernardino Shooter

December 3, 2015 by


By Kristine Marsh ~ On Wednesday, another mass shooting occurred in San Bernardino, CA, at a social care center for people with developmental disabilities.

Without a second thought, they blamed conservatives, the GOP […]

Gun Free “Kill Zones”

October 8, 2015 by


By Gregory D. Lee ~ The tragic events at Umpqua Community College (UCC) in Roseburg, Oregon, may be repeated if legislators and school managers fail to recognize that “Gun Free Zones” are in reality deathtraps that attract mentally unstable people to commit mass shootings. The college had one unarmed security guard on campus, and it […]

October 5, 2015 by


By Tom Johnson ~ Liberals and conservatives often differ over the concept of American exceptionalism, either on how to define it or whether there even is such a thing. Washington Monthly blogger Ed Kilgore recognizes a limited version of American exceptionalism, one which pretty much boils down to a mania for guns. “America is mainly […]

Screaming Murder

November 6, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Every day the headlines and the TV-radio news scream murder at us. My local daily out of Newark, NJ leads with a murder there and elsewhere in the state every day.

Stop ATF’s Anti-Gun Zealots

April 3, 2011 by


By Michelle Malkin For 30 years, Chicago banned handguns. The crime rate skyrocketed. Murders soared. Gangs blossomed. Desperate city officials even considered calling the National Guard to combat the out-of-control violence that all the “community organizing” in the world couldn’t curb. The Supreme Court struck down Chicago’s individual firearms ownership prohibition last year, but the […]
