Gun Rights

Predictable.... focus shifts to guns

As predicted focus shifts to guns, away from bombs

Media focus began shifting over the weekend to where the Tsarnaev brothers – suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings – got their guns and the fact that neither was licensed to have firearms in Cambridge, Mass.

Watch president, press focus on guns after manhunt ends

They allegedly set off bombs at the Boston Marathon and threw more explosives Friday morning at police, but after the manhunt ends with the apprehension or slaying of a suspect identified as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, watch how fast it takes gun prohibitionists and the press to focus on the gun or guns these guys apparently have.

ROLL CALL VOTES ON GUN BILL

See How Your Senators Voted!
By Harold Hutchison

On 17 April, a number of major votes were held regarding your Second Amendment Rights. Here, in one location, are links to each of the votes.

MANCHIN-TOOMEY AMENDMENT
“Compromise” legislation on background checks initially supported by CCRKBA until Harry Reid refused to allow a vote on an amendment to restore funds for a program called “relief from disability” that allowed the restoration of gun rights.

GRASSLEY-CRUZ AMENDMENT

Gun banners will be back

Gun control a dead issue…for the moment

GOA Alert: We Won a Stunning Victory Today!

“Schumer’s spokesman Brian Fallon took note of Gun Owners of America’s role in the debate, tweeting a link to the [New York] Times profile and saying the group ‘is making deal on even background checks extremely hard.’” - TPM Media, “Democrats Blame Gun Owners of America for Gun Control Setback,” April 8, 2013

You guys did it. We all did it - together!

For four months, the laughing hyenas on MSNBC and in the White House have been cackling hysterically about the "bitter clingers" who actually own guns and value the Second Amendment.

Well, who’s laughing now?
