Fox News' Bill O'Reilly becomes gun control advocate

Gun rights activists have noted that for the past three nights in a row Fox News' Bill O'Reilly has advocated gun control, calling for a national database of gun owners who buy what he calls "heavy weapons," including the registration of ammunition sales. Such a database is specifically prohibited by law.

The three night assault on the Second Amendment rights of citizens led one activist to refer to O'Reilly as a "faux conservative" and another to call for a boycott of The O'Reilly Factor and a coordinated effort to contact the sponsors of the show expressing their deep discontent.

With O'Reilly's new anti-gun initiative he joins the ranks of other well known gun control activists such as New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, CNN's Piers Morgan, U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y., all of whom are considered extremists by those who are involved in the movement to protect the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Democrats slip gun control into cybersecurity bill

Senate Democrats slipped in a gun control amendment to a cybersecurity bill Friday, claiming that it is time to impose "reasonable gun control measures," according to The Hill.

The cybersecurity bill has advanced to the stage in the process when amendments can be attached. Amendments to bills often have nothing to do with the issue being addressed in the bill itself.

Senators Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Bob Menendez, D-N.J., and Jack Reed, D-R.I., sponsored bill S.A. 2575 which would make it illegal to possess or transfer large capacity magazines, belts, feed stripes, or drums holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

DOJ inspector meets with congressmen on Fast and Furious

On Wednesday U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C. disclosed to the Washington Times that he and a colleague had met with the inspector general of the Department of Justice (DOJ) last week to discuss a pending report of an investigation into the Fast and Furious scandal.

Gowdy and U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, met with the newly appointed inspector general for the DOJ, Michael Horowitz, last week to discuss when he planned on releasing the report of his internal investigation into scandal that has encompassed at least three cabinet level agencies of the Obama administration.

The inspector general works for the DOJ and cannot be considered independent. However, the report is expected to include information on the failure of the Fast and Furious program and who authorized its implementation.

Investigators expose gun control in UN small arms treaty

A team of investigative reporters for Ammoland have exposed previously unpublished documents showing that the controversial U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), also known as the "small arms treaty," includes gun control for private "small arms and light weapons" as U.S. gun owners feared.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been negotiating the treaty at the United Nations on behalf of the Obama administration.

Clinton had assured the public that the treaty would include language prohibiting the treaty from mandating restrictions on U.S. gun sales. But the documents uncovered by Ammoland indicate otherwise.

Gun sales spike 41 percent after Colorado shooting

The Denver Post is reporting today that gun sales in Colorado have spiked 41 percent since the shooting at the Century 16 theater in Aurora last Friday. And the Colorado Bureau of Investigation reports that its approval of background checks for new firearms purchasers jumped 43 percent within the last four days.

In spite of claims by high profile news media personalities such as Piers Morgan and politicians such as U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., that the nation's "lax gun laws" cause such massacres, American citizens do not seem to be buying it.

Instead, Americans appear to believe that owning and carrying a gun is the best protection a citizen can be afforded in this era in which criminals find a way to get grenades, explosives, and other weaponry in spite of strict gun control laws like those in Aurora, Colo.

Democrats double down on demands for gun control

In a renewed onslaught only one day after they called for more gun control in the wake of the Colorado shooting, Democrats in Washington today doubled down on their demands that average American citizens relinquish some or all of their firearms rights in order to prevent criminals from getting guns.

U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y., and U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., claimed Saturday that lax gun laws led to the mass shooting that killed 12 movie goers in Aurora, Colorado early Friday morning just after midnight.

Today the two Democrats were joined by U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who stated that "weapons of war don't belong on the streets." Feinstein renewed her call to reinstate the so-called "assault weapons ban" that would prohibit citizens from purchasing semi-automatic weapons with high capacity magazines.
