Hillary Slams Heller Again

You know, leaked audio has bitten Hillary Clinton a couple of times already. Now, we have leaked audio of her talking gun control. More accurately, what she is saying should scare any gun owner from the #NeverTrump nonsense.

Hillary has long been critical of the landmark Heller decision, but she now has expanded to calling for a permanent ban on certain semi-auto firearms, and is going even further that that, in the remarks that were very sweeping – and which have no intention of fostering unity.

“I’m going to speak out, I’m going to do everything I can to rally people against this pernicious, corrupting influence of the NRA and we’re going to do whatever we can,” she said.

She also said this about open carry: “The idea that you can have an open carry permit with an AK-47 over your shoulder walking up and down the aisles of a supermarket is just despicable.”

Those comments in front of her well-heeled donors got applause. Keep in mind, this is how they think of our Second Amendment rights. It’s not about “reasonable” gun control. They want to take them away.

The Streak Hits 17

Well, once again, we have a month of record gun sales, according to the number of times the National Instant Check System has done a background check. This makes seventeen months in a row.

“Sales of handguns and AR’s have been very strong for the past two months,” Scott Blick told the Washington Examiner. Hopefully, these new gun owners get involved in defeating Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid, lest they find the landmark Heller v. District of Columbia decision overturned.

Suspended For A Pro-Gun Project

We know New Jersey’s had screwed-up gun laws. The place is a gun-grabber’s dream. People with valid carry permits in other states have faced felony charges because they had their guns with them. Well, now, a project shooting down gun control got a student suspended.

Frank Harvey did this project for his College and Career Readiness class and got an A. But when he left the flash drive in a school computer, administrators suspended him and demanded he get a psychological examination before he could return to school.

Furthermore, his teacher in the class is apparently lying, claiming she never assigned the project.

The administration is also trying to push back, claiming that the Harvey and his family are lying. Yeah, sure they are. Maybe they are embarrassed because their inner authoritarians have been revealed.

French Gun Laws Fail to Protect Kim Kardashian

By now, you’ve heard that reality star Kim Kardashian West was robbed. It had to have been a traumatic experience for Mrs. West, who was attending Paris Fashion Week, and we’re grateful she wasn’t hurt.

That said, we’ve covered the gun laws in France before. We noted they did not prevent either the attack on the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo or the major attack last November. In fact, when seconds counted, help for Mrs. West was minutes away. France’s gun laws meant that Mrs. West was unarmed and helpless – her bodyguard was off guarding other members of her family at the time of the robbery.

Think about that, folks.

Judge Tossed Out CNMI Laws

Want to know why judges matter? Let’s take a look at a case from the Commonweath of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) for one powerful exhibit. This place had a gun-grabber’s wish list. So-called “assault weapons” were banned, there was no real open or concealed carry for residents, they even banned calibers above .223 Remington, and charged a tax of $1,000 to buy a handgun.

Judge Ramona Manglona threw all of that out in a very thorough ruling. But the CNMI fall under the Ninth Circuit Court, which just recently used an en banc panel to overturn a ruling that struck down California’s “may issue” laws that had become “no issue” in practice.

Do you want Hillary Clinton naming the Supreme Court Justice who could decide the outcome of this case?
