American Gun Ownership: The Positive Impacts of Law-Abiding Citizens Owning Firearms

from Ammo:

It’s no secret that mainstream press coverage of gun ownership in the United States tends to be in favor of gun control – especially when those reporting on the topic are not firearm owners themselves. Journalists focus on how many people are killed by guns, how many children get their hands on improperly stored firearms, and how many deranged individuals go on shooting sprees.

This anti-gun news bias is widespread among the “urban elite” who have very little personal experience with guns and yet write for influential newspapers like The New York TimesWashington Post, etc. Despite this bias, law-abiding private citizens owning guns does have positive impacts on American society that often go unreported – many of which are significant.

by John W. Whitehead, Rutherford Institute:

“Every day in communities across the United States, children and adolescents spend the majority of their waking hours in schools that have increasingly come to resemble places of detention more than places of learning.”—Investigative journalist Annette Fuentes

Just when you thought the government couldn’t get any more tone-deaf about civil liberties and the growing need to protect “we the people” against an overreaching, overbearing police state, the Trump Administration ushers in even more strident zero tolerance policies that treat children like suspects and criminals, greater numbers of school cops, and all the trappings of a prison complex (unsurmountable fences, entrapment areas, no windows or trees, etc.).

Government Officials Seize Veteran’s Guns in Mistaken Identification In Red Flag Law Execution

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

Since the crazed Constitutional rights prohibitionists can’t get the federal government to pass any of their absurd gun control laws, they have turned to a state-by-state effort to methodically do away with the 2nd Amendment.

One of the many laws they are pushing are so-called “red flag” laws where someone can petition the courts to have someone’s guns taken away without any due process by claiming the person is a danger to themselves or others. And the person being served with the court order doesn’t even know it until the cops are at the door. Then the person has to spend their own money and time to fight it, and has to prove their innocence before the court in order to get their rights back.

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

With round 2 of the Democrats long march into November now behind us and New Hampshire nowhere near the utter fiasco that the Iowa caucuses were, we’ve gotten another sign it could be a very long year for the very depressed Democrats whose top candidates now appear to be ‘Breadline’ Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg and pretty much unknown Amy Klobuchar with both Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden laying big fat eggs, and giving many more evidence that Hillary Clinton might be preparing to thrown her witches hat into the race.
