Define Common Sense Gun Control

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

The bodies children from the Parkland shooting are not even cold, and gun grabbers are out in force.

Gun grabbing Socialist Democrats are throwing the ever popular buzz words, “Common sense gun control” around as if the words were candy.

Someone explain “exactly” what common sense gun control is.

  • Background checks – in effect since the 1990s.
  • Family violence offenders – check.
  • Felons prohibited from owning a gun – check.
  • People with a history of mental illness – check.

Someone explain where we need more gun control. Much less “common sense” gun control.

Gun owners have given up our rights since the 1930s. Those rights were further eroded by the Federal Firearms Act of 1968. Then there was the Brady Bill.

Exactly and to the point, what laws would have prevented the Parkland, Florida school shooting? Continue Reading….

Will Democrats Push Gun Control In 2018

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

One question gun owners may be thinking, “Will democrats push gun control in the 2018 mid-term elections?”

There is a saying about articles that start with a question, “The answer is no.” This is called Betteridge’s law of headlines. The law is the absurd suggestion that says anything that starts with a question can be answered with a no.

I prefer a more balanced approach: Ask a question, present the evidence, then let the reader make up their own mind. That is what writers are supposed to do, right? Present both sides and let the reader make up their own mind.

If we follow Betteridge’s law of headlines, the answer is no, and I am glad Democrats will not be pushing gun control in 2018. However, what if I told you the answer was yes?

The real answer is a combination of yes and no. Continue Reading….

Only Idiots Vote For Gun Control

Kevin Felts political commentator

Let’s say someone came to you and asked you to restrict your rights, what would you say?

For the sake of discussion, let’s say they wanted to restrict your right to vote, or your right to a jury trial, or your right to bail, or your right to go to church. What would you say?

The person would use different arguments, but the end result would be the same. Which would be limiting your rights. Letting people out on bail is to dangerous, so let’s keep people in prison until their trial date.

Why would we need a trial by jury? Let’s appoint scientist to look at the evidence and decide a persons fate. With trained professionals there is no need to have attorneys. Just present the evidence and let them decide. Continue Reading….

Support for gun control fading

Good news ladies and gentlemen.  The Independent Journal Review posted an article detailing how Americans are Getting Tired of Gun Control Pushes. Support for more gun control is waning across all political parties, including liberals and democrats.  This should be common sense, gun control does not reduce violent crime. Criminals do not care about laws. Society should take the people who mental problems and ensure they receive help. Democrats (from 79% to 71%) Liberals (from 75% to 67%) Women (from 69% 55%) Republicans (from 39% to 29%) If democrats and liberals want to reduce violent crime: 1. Open community colleges in low income housing areas. Make attendance mandatory for anyone living in public housing. Provide people on welfare with a clear path out of poverty.  Continue Reading….

Good guy with a gun

Remember when The NRA said ‘Only Thing That Stops A Bad Guy With A Gun Is A Good Guy With A Gun’ and the left we bat crap crazy?

The shooting in Canada proves just that. A good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with minimal loss of life.

What is the left doing? They pretty much ignored how to stop mass shootings. Someone terrorist starts shooting, have a few armed good guys around to put a swift end to the rampage.

It is evident the leftist news sites are not interested in reporting the news. All they wish to do is push an agenda. Continue Reading….

Democrats ask Bloomberg to give up on gun control

There comes a time when you say enough is enough, and that time has come with ex-mayor Michael Bloomberg. First he was forced out of office by term limits, and now high ranking democrats in Washington D.C. are asking bloomberg to tone down his anti-gun rhetoric. Lets be honest, bloomberg turned New York into a laughing stock with his petty wars on life choices. Whether it is smoking, or large sugary drinks, people should have a right to pick their poison.  People should have the right to live the lifestyle they wish.  If a mayor wants to ban large soft drinks, what about stuff like beer, bacon and whiskey? Now it seems ex-mayor bloomberg is a little too far left even for the lefties, From Continue Reading….

Why major media dropped Arapaho school shooting

On December 13, 2013 Karl Pierson walked into Arapaho high school, shot one student and then killed himself.

Usually this would have been major news for weeks, with anti-gun advocates coming out of the woodwork like roaches. There should have been renewed calls for gun control with president Obama addressing the nation for the need for tighter restrictions and background checks.

So what makes this school shooting different?

The shooter used a shotgun.

The shooter legally bought the firearm.

Shooter was left leaning communist democrat

A good guy with a gun put a quick end to the violence. Continue Reading….

Feinstein Just Got Owned

Well, well, well, good ole Dianne Feinstein just got her socialist anti-gun bill slapped down, and by one of her own. Harry Reid will not include an assault rifle and magazine ban in the newly proposed gun legislation.

The ban Feinstein wanted will be presented in a separate bill, one that will surely fail to pass.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

Several member of the Democratic Party are up for reelection in 2014. A lot of those seats are in districts that vote for Republicans and Democrats. If some kind of ban does pass, it is almost assured the Democrats will lose votes, which will result in losing seats in the House and Senate.

If the Democrats lose seats in the 2014 election, Obama will be a lame duck president. With the Republican controlled congress, it is unlikely Obama will be able to get any new laws passed. Continue Reading….

Beretta Considers Leaving Maryland

Maryland is working on passing a new series of gun control laws. Some of which will endanger national security by restricting the types of magazines Beretta can import to its factories.

Consider this,

Beretta makes the M9 service pistol for the military and various law enforcement agencies.
Maryland is restricting the types of magazines Beretta can import into the state.
Maryland is restricting the types of magazines Beretta can keep in their warehouses. Continue Reading….

Random Thoughts February 27 2013

We have a lot to talk about. Rather then break these topics down into individual post, lets jut make another random thoughts post.

Colorado has gone off the deep end with gun control. This time they want to make make sellers of semiautomatic rifles responsible for the actions of the end users. It’s laughable what the gun hating liberals are trying to push through. Making gun sellers responsible, is like making Ford, Toyota or GM responsible for drunk drivers.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

Feinstein’s ‘assault weapon’ ban goes to committee. When is the government going to address the real cause of gun violence? Our nation is being overran with debt, banks are getting a steady handout of $85 billion a month from the federal reserve, Iran is working its way to becoming a nuclear power,,, and Dianne Feinstein is worried about gun control? Holy crap, really?

A buddy of mine passed away, his memorial service is going to be March 2.

AR-15 prices are slowing coming down. Instead of a colt 6920 costing $3,000, prices are down to around $2,000. Other brand name ARs are floating around double their price before Sandy Hook. Continue Reading….

Why Dont People Address The Real Cause Of Gun Violence

While browsing the net I landed on yet another gun control article. That article, like so many others does not address the root causes of gun violence.

Obama has thrown a fake bone to the gun hating liberal dogs. As they slobber all over it, the liberals are too dumb to realize its a fake bone.

[caption id="attachment_16075" align="alignright" width="125"]Kevin Felts My Google Profile[/caption]

Does the bone address repeat offenders?

Does the bone address gang and drug related crime?

Does the bone address protecting our borders from illegal drugs? Continue Reading….

Surprised By The Gun Haters

One thing that has surprised me after the Sandy Hook shooting is all of the hatred towards guns. This is not your typical “we need to ban guns” type of hatred that we see after a shooting, this is unbridled hatred.

This is the nazi and the jews type of hatred, pit bull attacks a baby type of hatred,,,,. If those people could, they would take every gun away, and that is absolutely crazy. Crazy that logical people have a knee jerk reaction to a tragic event.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

Instead of placing the blame on the root cause of the gun violence issue, gun haters blame the tool. That is like blaming Snap-on for someone drinking and driving.

If the people are not united, can we survive as a nation?

After Waco and the Branch Davidian stand off, did gun haters want religion control?

After the financial collapse of 2008, did the gun haters want banking control?

With so many pit bull attacks every year, are the gun haters calling for pit bull control?

President Obama is having US citizens killed with no due process of law, are the gun haters outraged about that? Probably not. Continue Reading….

Left Versus Right On Gun Control

How many people on the left are willing to take up arms to disarm the pro gun movement?

If you are willing to take up arms, doesn’t that make you pro gun?

If the left agree with the military being armed, aren’t they pro gun?

If the left agree with the police having guns, aren’t they pro gun?

Or is it just the normal everyday people that should be disarmed?

I will give up my gun when Dianne Feinstein knocks on my door, and she is better armed then me. Continue Reading….

Anti-Gun Propaganda

Example of anti-gun propaganda.

What about the gun control acts of 1934 and 1968? Do the people who make this type of video have any first hand experience with firearms?

Lets place the blame where it belongs, on the mentally ill people who kill others.

Ted Bundy did not use a gun.

Jeffrey Dahmer did not use a gun.

Jim Jones did not use a gun.

But for some reason more gun laws will fix crime?

If regulations fixed problems, why are drugs on our streets? Continue Reading….
