The Left Can’t Blame Money in Politics for Its Policy Failures



Both of our political parties are dominated by people who believe that the American people are fundamentally on their side. When they face political setbacks, then, there must be some nefarious explanation for the thwarting of the people’s will. For contemporary Republicans, that explanation is likely to involve the media or the “deep state.” For Democrats, it will probably include money in politics. On the left, it’s the go-to theory for why progressive policies haven’t already been adopted. Why hasn’t the federal government taken strong action to fight climate change? It must be due to the influence of the fossil-fuel industry. Why doesn’t serious gun control ever get traction in Congress even when polls seem to back it? It’s because of the National Rifle Association’s contributions to campaigns.

Judge Luis Berrones issued a permanent injunction blocking the village from enforcing its ordinance. In the ruling, Berrones wrote that the plaintiff gun owners have “a clearly ascertainable right to not be subjected to a preempted and unenforceable ordinance” that prohibits possession of "assault weapons", imposes financial penalties for keeping them and allows their property to be confiscated.

Supreme Court to Review New York City Gun Control Law

Feinstein Pushes to Ban America’s Most Popular Firearm, Again


It’s been nearly 25 years since Dianne Feinstein uttered those words while discussing the 1994 ban on semiautomatic rifles, handguns and shotguns. With that proclamation, she made clear that her ultimate goal when it comes to firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens is nothing short of confiscation.

Dems and Gun-Control Advocates Celebrate New Zealand Gun-Confiscation Plan


American gun-control advocates and Democratic politicians took to social media to celebrate New Zealand's plan to ban and confiscate many semiautomatic rifles and magazines on Thursday in the wake of the deadly Christchurch mosque attack. New Zealand's plan involves banning the sale and possession of any semiautomatic rifle or shotgun capable of accepting a magazine that holds more than five rounds of ammunition. Those who own such firearms would have to turn them in to police during a yet-to-be-determined buyback period or face criminal prosecution, fines, and jail time. The policy further restricts gun ownership in the country, which has a small number of gun owners. State officials enjoy wide authority to deny or revoke gun ownership licenses, which are required to purchase or own firearms.

MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi said "nobody in America has suggested banning any guns" during coverage Thursday of new gun control measures in New Zealand, although in fact many people in America have suggested banning types of guns. "Nobody in America has suggested banning any guns, but we have so many guns in this country that it causes other problems, right?" he asked, going on to discuss a recent NBC News report on the prevalence of suicide by guns in the United States. Velshi's comment is curious, given the intense wave of support for gun control measures on the left, particularly in the past year since the Stoneman Douglas High School massacre in Florida.

Ocasio-Cortez, other Democrats squeeze big banks on guns, immigration, climate


More than a decade after Wall Street's crash wrecked the global economy, House Democrats are threatening to stigmatize the nation's biggest banks again. Progressive freshmen like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) are joining with veteran lawmakers to try to shame the lenders into taking a stand on some of the country’s most divisive issues: climate change, gun violence and immigration.

There It Is...Ocasio-Cortez Pushes For A Gun Ban


The New Zealand shooting, which left 50 people dead, is already being weaponized by the Left to pursue yet another wave of anti-gun activism. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s government virtually banned semi-automatic rifles, so of course, Democrats over here were oozing with all the feelings over that. Sen. Bernie Sanders was all over it almost immediately after news of the ban was reported. There is no wiggle room in Kiwi land, folks. It’s a gun confiscation program. No grandfather clause, or anything, if you own a so-called “military-style” assault rifle (liberal speak for a scary gun), you need to turn them over. It’s trash, but it’s also a good reminder for why we have a Second Amendment to our constitution. There are some in the media who say that no one has called for a gun ban. That’s patently false. The newest to voice their gun grabbing feelings is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

Breaking! Federal Court Finds California Magazine Ban Violates the Second Amendment


In one of the strongest judicial statements in favor of the Second Amendment to date, Judge Roger T. Benitez of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California determined on Friday that California’s ban on commonly possessed firearm magazines violates the Second Amendment. The case is Duncan v. Becerra. The NRA-supported case had already been up to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on the question of whether the law’s enforcement should be suspended during proceedings on its constitutionality. Last July, a three judge panel of the Ninth Circuit upheld Judge Benitez’s suspension of enforcement and sent the case back to him for further proceedings on the merits of the law itself.

Nearly half of all Ohio House Republicans are co-sponsoring new legislation to abolish the state’s conceal-carry license and training requirements.

In addition, the bill would repeal an Ohio law requiring motorists stopped by law enforcement to notify the officer if they are carrying a gun.
