“Fact Checkers” Embarrass Themselves Covering for Hillary

At a campaign rally in Lynden, Washington on May 7th, presidential nominee Donald Trump said, “Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to abolish it. Hillary Clinton wants to take your guns away.”

Anyone who has heard her speak before knows that to be the case.

However, in the days since his statement, the Annenberg Foundation’s FactCheck.org and PolitiFact have bent over backwards to defend Hillary Clinton from this description of her positions. These outlets’ attempts to contort Clinton’s record to suit their agenda is so shameless one hopes the efforts prompt Columbia University to create a Pulitzer Prize for cognitive dissonance.

Both FactCheck.org and PolitiFact take a handful of carefully selected statements Clinton and her campaign have made at face-value, while dismissing her more candid statements.

On September 24, 2015, at a fundraiser held at the New York City home of John Zaccaro, Clinton made her views on the Second Amendment abundantly clear. An audio recording of the private event captured the candidate stating, “the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. And I am going to make that case every chance I get.”

For most Americans, the Second Amendment is synonymous with protection of the individual right to keep and bears arms, thus an effort to eliminate the latter is rightly thought of as an attempt at abolishing the former. Illustrating this link in the minds of the vast majority of Americans, a USA Today/Gallup poll from February 2008 found that 73-percent of respondents understood the Second Amendment to protect “the rights of Americans to own guns,” rather than “members of state militias such as National Guard units.” In 2009, a similar CNN poll found that 77-percent of Americans endorsed the individual rights interpretation of the Second Amendment.

In her response, Clinton, exhibiting a knowledge of the contours of the Australian confiscation scheme, stated, “In the Australian example, as I recall, that was a buyback program. The Australian government, as part of trying to clamp down on the availability of automatic weapons, offered a good price for buying hundreds of thousands of guns.” Clinton concludes her answer by noting, “So I think that’s worth considering. I do not know enough detail to tell you how we would do it, or how would it work, but certainly the Australian example is worth looking at.”

In 2004, Clinton took to the Senate floor to oppose the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which protects firearm manufacturers and dealers from liability arising from the unlawful actions of a third party. On March 6, after having been repeatedly attacked by Clinton for not opposing the PLCAA, Clinton’s opponent for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), said of her position, “what you’re really talking about is people saying let’s end gun manufacturing in America. That’s the implications of that. And I don’t agree with that.”

Now we have self-described socialist, Bernie Sanders, even stating her desire to hinder American’s from owning guns.

sig-sauer-sp2022-semi-auto-pistolOn Wednesday, President Barack Obama met with former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to talk about what can be done to end the threat of gun violence.

“The two discussed ways to keep guns out of the hands of those who should not have access to them, and what more could be done at the state and local level to help address gun violence in America,” the White House said of their meeting.

 

The Truth About Gun Control

The fiercely debated issue of Gun Control strongly divides Democrats and Republicans in the United States of America. The Second Amendment becomes a hot topic of conversation whenever a shooting makes the national news and tempers flare across the political spectrum. This presentation presents the available evidence regarding gun prevalence, gun homicides, gun control laws and much more in an attempt to get to the bottom of this complicated issue. What is the Truth About Gun Control?

‘I Will Not Comply’ rally draws gun-rights supporters to Olympia, Washington

Protesters gathered at the state Capitol in Olympia, Washington to denounce an expanded initiative on gun-purchase background checks.

Demonstrators gathered Saturday afternoon at the Capitol in Olympia, Washington to protest the tyranny of what they consider to be an unlawful American government. These demonstrators were denouncing a new law which expands gun-purchase background checks to all sales or trades of private firearms. You read that correctly!

Initiative 594 expands background checks to people buying firearms in private sales or trading them.

How did this happen? Slowly, very slowly and the movement to disarm the citizenry continues.

It is self evident that you may disarm a nation by making the very act of owning a firearm more and more inconvenient or treacherous. One false move (accidental or not) with a gun now a days will land you in jail and strip you of your right to bear arms into the future. One by one, day by day.

Tragedies, which involve the use of firearms by criminals (usually against unarmed individuals), are solicited by anti-gunners as evidence for and calls to further disarm the citizenry and serve as ways to expedite their agenda.

What should a responsible individual do?

Think for yourself, learn from history and protect yourself and loved ones as best you can. Your freedom is your responsibility.

“To conquer a nation, one must first disarm its citizens.”Adolf Hitler

We leave you one last quote.

This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!”Adolf Hitler, Chancellor, Germany, 1933

Among African-Americans, Pew found that a majority, 54 percent, now say that gun ownership does more to protect people than to endanger personal safety.

Among whites, some 62 percent now see guns as a protection, up from 54 percent in December 2012, according to Pew.
