The New York Times Super Excited About Massive Gun Registration Schemes!

By William Teach

Despite anti-gunnite talking points, most law abiding gun owners are not against background checks. We have no problem with making sure that the person attempting to purchase a firearm is not a bad person. But, do background checks actually stop Bad Guys from getting guns? For the most part, no. Hence, the NRA is not suggesting that we do away with the backgrounds check system, they just think it’s absurd to expand it, because it will almost never stop a bad character from getting a gun. And they are against the gun registration schemes of the anti-gunnites, because it is simply a big government control scheme. Furthermore, the government fails to enter those who are “adjudicated mentally incompetent into the National Instant Check System.” But, nothing will ever stop the gun haters from pushing their schemes

Katie Couric Finally Apologizes For Her Fraudulent Anti-Gun Documentary

By Guy Bentley

Katie Couric apologized and accepted responsibility for misrepresenting gun rights activists in her upcoming documentary “Under the Gun,” Monday.

“I take responsibility for a decision that misrepresented an exchange I had with members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League,” Couric said in a statement.

The Global News anchor for Yahoo has been under fire ever since the Washington Free Beacon revealed Couric’s documentary was intentionally edited to make pro-gun Americans appear incapable of justifying their views.

At one point in the film, Couric asks the Virginia Citizens Defense League, “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”

QOTD: "Without the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, would be reduced to "just words on paper," Scalia warned. He also reminded audience members that the Founding Fathers did not deliberate over the Bill of Rights during the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Instead, they debated over structure of the federal government.

The most damaging change to this structure came in the form of the 17th Amendment, which provided for the direct, popular election of U.S. senators, Scalia said. Prior to when the amendment was ratified in 1913, state legislators would appoint U.S. senators. While this amendment was viewed as step forward for democracy, Scalia argued that it removed a key component of the constitutional structure the framers had put in place to protect federalism and state interests.

"You now have senators who have no connection to the state government, never been in state government and some of them have never been to the state," Scalia observed during his talk." --Kevin Mooney

This Is Not The America My Parents Immigrated To In 1957

By The Burning Platform

Not that I remember what America was like in 1957, as I was not yet five years old. Years later, when I was old enough to understand, they told me their story. Briefly, it goes like this.

Dad was born in Romania (Czernowitz in Northern Bulovina), but he identified (haha) as German because, well, his dad was German, his mom was German, they spoke German and kept German customs, and lived in a German community so, applying the “quacking duck” theory, that’s what he was. Mom was born in Yugoslavia (now, Slovenia), but she identified as German for the same reasons as dad did. The Nazi regime would refer to folks such as my parents as “Volksdeutsche” —- being German as a people or race, regardless of citizenship.

QOTD: "In 1945, both Germany and Korea were divided into two areas, one under western, capitalist control, and one under communist control. Four decades later, West Germany and South Korea were thriving, first-world countries, creating wealth and spreading it widely across the socioeconomic spectrum. East Germany (which disappeared in 1989) and North Korea (unfortunately still with us) were hellholes of poverty and tyranny.

Today we have another natural experiment testing whether socialism or capitalism works better. In 1973, Chile was rescued from communism under Salvador Allende with a military coup and economic (and eventually political) reforms began. At that point Chile’s economic freedom as among the lowest in the world. Venezuela’s in 1975 was among the highest. Today the economic freedom of the two countries is reversed. So are their economic situations. In the 41 years since 1975, the Venezuelan economy has shrunk by 17 percent. Chile’s has grown by 287 percent. By virtually every measure Chile’s situation has radically improved, while Venezuela’s has sharply deteriorated." --John Steele Gordon, "Capitalism v. Socialism"

HIROSHIMA: Obama "just put a knife in America and turned it"

Just passed over the transom by Yuri, Savage lays waste to the Obama apology tour, Chapter XXXVI, this time visiting Hiroshima to honor the war dead:

Now, the Imperial Japanese Military, which he’s including with our heroes, committed thousands of war crimes in World War II, resulting in the deaths of millions of civilians and prisoners of war.

And yet your president, this anti-American walking disaster, stabbed all of our World War II dead in their graves. He spit on their graves.

Hey, I fixed that "Man Enough for Hillary" ad for you #ManEnough4Hillary

There. Fixed it for them.

QOTD: "Do obscenities fall from [Donald Trump's] lips more readily than they did from Lyndon Johnson's or Richard Nixon's?

Are the circumstances of his three marriages more shameful than the circumstances of John F. Kennedy's pathologically unfaithful one—or that matter, Bill Clinton's humiliatingly unfaithful one? Have any of his egotistical excesses rivaled Andrew Jackson's killing a man in a duel over a racing bet and an insult to Jackson's wife?"" --Charles Kesler
