Parkland student-turned-darling of the gun control crowd, David Hogg, recently made an appeal for everybody to sit down and work this out:
Here’s what he tweeted a few days ago:
Can we please not debate this as Democrats and Republicans but discuss this as Americans? In the comments if you see someone you dissagree with do not attack each other talk to one another, this applies to me too. WE MUST WORK TOGETHER TO SAVE OUR FUTURE.
Yesterday’s student walkout was purportedly to offer a call to action to the government to “do something” about “gun violence” (they just go off all on their own, ya know!) was in fact a prog-organized event designed to nudge as many unwitting participants as possible over to the left side of the anti-NRA argument and create more future Democrats. The rallies featured some signs that were nothing short of stunningly stupid.
Anybody who wants to know just how much of a gun free zone the White House is need only pull out a knife and run towards it screaming to find out the hard way.
Yesterday I read plenty of comments saying that signs like that prove these kids would be better off in school, but if those are the kinds of critical thinking skills they’re being taught, maybe they’re better off as far away from a public education indoctrination as possible.
A Democrat congressional candidate from Virginia tried to make an anti-gun point recently by chopping up an AR-15, but it might have backfired in more ways than one:
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) — The Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is investigating congressional candidate Karen Mallard after she posted a video on Facebook that shows her cutting apart an AR-15 rifle.
The school teacher and Democrat is running for Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District, hoping to oust Republican Congressman Scott Taylor.
Several others said Mallard broke federal law by taking a legal firearm and altering it, making it into an illegal one. Many of them referred to details contained within the Sawed-Off Shotgun and Sawed-Off Rifle Act which, in part, prohibits people (except for those permitted by the act) from having a rifle that has been “modified to an overall length of less than 26 inches.”
Sure enough, the ATF is involved because of this stunt:
Mallard is now trying to duck (cue rimshot) responsibility by claiming it was done to make an obvious point.
Instead of having a reasoned and well thought out debate on how we can #SafeguardOurChildren from mass shootings, these @NRA enthusiasts wanted to claim that the video that I posted showed me breaking the law. #3 #Va02
First, Mallard supports Everytown and Moms Demand Action, groups that every day try to paint the NRA and law-abiding gun owners as complicit in mass murder, so spare me the “having reasoned and well thought out debate” bullshit. Second, does she want strict gun laws or doesn’t she? It strikes me as weapons-grade hilarious that somebody calling for more gun laws and stricter enforcement of them is bitching about a federal agency investigating whether or not she violated a gun law for her little chop-shop stunt.
Celebs will be wearing orange pins from “Everytown for Gun Safety” (“gun safety” = gun control) tonight at the Oscars. Everytown often ridicules the “good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun” argument, and Hollywood will be pushing that agenda tonight at the Academy Awards.
However, when it comes to protecting their own hypocritical asses, “good guy with a gun” is totally acceptable to the Hollywood left:
And there are more than just cops. Oscar-going libs will be lecturing America that guns don’t make them safer from behind a veritable Maginot Line of armament:
Traffic in Hollywood will grind to a halt on Sunday, as the LAPD works to wrap the Dolby Theatre in multiple cordons of security.
More than 500 officers will be on hand, many of them working overtime, to ensure the safety of the 90th Academy Awards, along with firefighters, police helicopters and agents from the FBI. Private security guards from Security Industry Specialists will work the inside of the theater.
“We have these concentric rings of security that start in the middle and radiate outward,” says LAPD Cmdr. Blake Chow, who is overseeing the operation. “We have a lot of officers in fixed posts and foot beats keeping an eye on the event.”
And that doesn’t include the armed private security some anti-gun celebs employ. You see, their lives are super important, but a “gun free zone” sign should be more enough to protect the rest of us rubes.
Who’s up for a lecture on morality, ethics and corruption from the head of the country that’s the world’s #1 state sponsor of terrorism that tortures citizens for things like holding signs critical of the regime and removing their hijabs in public?
Today, in U.S., violence, moral corruption, collapse of family, children and next generations' have reached a level where US intellectuals insist on changing the content of movies, advertising, Hollywood cinema, etc… to that of 100 years ago with more moral aspects. pic.twitter.com/HCElrx1vZc
In US, 100s are killed every week by homicide for no crime,—no reason—not at the hands of police, as US police brutality is a separate issue. The accessibility of guns leads to homicide; it's created problems for a country like US, everyone admits, fears, & is concerned about it.
If I’d have blanked out the Twitter handle and said those tweets were from congressional Democrats it would be completely believable because the two are indistinguishable on the issue.
Maybe the Ayatollah will join the #GunSense boycott of businesses that continue to be affiliated with the NRA and REALLY stick it to the enemies of freedom! Thankfully for the anti-NRA crowd the Obama administration didn’t use FedEx to send Iran the pallet of cash or they’d be feeling really bad about themselves right now.
If there’s a more glaring example of why the 2nd Amendment exists it’s criticism of gun rights from totalitarians & authoritarians — not that liberals will bother to connect those dots.
Delta Airlines ended its affiliation with the NRA, pissed off millions of people and was among companies that saw their public image decline as a result, and at the end of the day, here’s what they caved to lefties over:
It’s almost as if people don’t join the NRA just for the Delta discount!
Delta’s rapid cave to pressure from the Left caused such an explosive decompression that oxygen masks dropped from the ceiling at corporate HQ:
The Georgia legislature removed a jet-fuel tax break from a larger tax package Thursday. Lawmakers were upset that Delta, which is headquartered in Atlanta, dropped the National Rifle Association from a discount-fare program in an effort to appear neutral on gun policy.
After the firestorm, Delta will review all its marketing programs to avoid those that might become political, CEO Ed Bastian announced Friday.
But the airline said only 13 passengers ever bought tickets with an NRA discount. That translates into each discount costing the airline about $3 million in tax breaks.
Round of applause for Delta, everybody! And now it’s time to try and back it all up:
They must be handing out Frequent Liar Miles at Delta’s office today. And all that’s going to do is anger the lefties they caved to, and NRA supporters will still take their business elsewhere when possible. You’re doing customer relations wrong, Delta!
Many companies who offered discounts to NRA members caved into liberal pressure recently. How’s that working out for them?
A Morning Consult survey of 2,201 U.S. adults conducted Feb. 23-25 found increases in negative views of businesses that severed ties with the NRA after consumers learned of them. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.
MetLife Inc., the insurance giant that ended a discount for NRA members last week, had a 45 percent favorable rating, compared to a 12 percent unfavorable rating, before survey participants were informed of that move. After learning of it, respondents with an unfavorable view of the company doubled to 24 percent, while its favorability rating was unchanged.
Among Republicans, the firm’s favorability ratings flipped after participants learned of the decision regarding the NRA. Beforehand, 50 percent of Republicans said they had a favorable view of the company, compared to 10 percent with an unfavorable view. After being informed of MetLife’s decision, the ratings changed to 29 percent favorable and 44 percent unfavorable.
Unfavorability ratings for the three major rental car brands associated with Enterprise Holdings Inc. — Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo and National Car Rental — all more than doubled among surveyed adults after they learned about the companies ending discounts for NRA members.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s favorability rating slid from 61 percent to 50 percent, while its unfavorability rating jumped from 12 percent to 25 percent. For Alamo and National Car Rental, favorability was little changed, whereas unfavorability ratings increased from 10 percent to 24 percent and 11 percent to 25 percent, respectively.
But what companies had their favorability rating go up as a result of caving to the noisy anti-NRA left? Um, ZERO:

Dems just don’t understand human nature, do they? Or maybe they do and are all just secretly working for gun & ammo manufacturers and angling for a BIG sales commission:
House Democrats have introduced a bill banning semi-automatic firearms in the wake of the Feb. 14 shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla.
Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., announced Monday he is introducing the Assault Weapons Ban of 2018. More than 150 Democrats have signed on in support of the legislation, Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla., said.
“Today I joined @RepCicilline and 150+ of my colleagues to introduce the assault weapons ban. It’s time for Congress to listen to the will of a majority of Americans and pass sensible legislation to get these weapons of war off our streets. #NeverAgain #MSDStrong,” Deutch tweeted.
Thousands of gun enthusiasts — more so than ever — flocked to the Florida State Fairgrounds for the Florida Gun Show event.
Organizers say they had a record number of people attend the event on Saturday, Feb. 24, almost 7,000, and expected more Sunday.
The manager for the Florida Gun Show, George Fernandez, says they’ve never seen such a big crowd.
“Some of the people attending are afraid that future legislation will impact their gun ownership rights,” he says.
Also — and this is anecdotal evidence — but based on the reactions I’m seeing I’m guessing NRA membership is through the roof. Well done, Dems!
FLORIDA GUN SHOW I Organizers say they saw record numbers yesterday with close to 7k people showing up and they expect more today! They also tell me they do not support a ban on assault rifles but more laws for mental health. @10NewsWTSPpic.twitter.com/95YGMKGl3E
