New Budget Proposes Almost $1.5 Billion to Protect You from Gun Violence

President Obama wants to protect you from gun violence.

Just reading that, you know this cannot be good. In his latest budget request, Obama requested $1.1 billion for gun control and “to protect Americans from gun violence.” But the assault on our Second Amendment rights will not stop there. Adding fuel to the gun control fire, the Department of Justice (DOJ) asked for an additional 382.1 million for gun control.

Illinois Concealed Carry Law

It took until July of 2013, but my home state of Illinois became the last state in the Union to enact a concealed carry law. Illinois was last for a reason, and both sides offered plenty of rhetoric. The Antis claimed the law would paramount to the Wild West; the streets would lawless and gun fights rampant. A friendly punch to the snot locker would instead lead to murder conviction because everyone would be packing heat.

Gun Control in the Third Reich: Disarming the Jews and ‘Enemies of the State’

Dr. Stephen P. Halbrook’s new book, Gun Control in the Third Reich: Disarming the Jews and “Enemies of the State”, presents the hidden history of how the Nazi regime made use of gun control to disarm and repress its enemies and consolidate power. Countless books on the Third Reich and the Holocaust fail even to mention the laws restricting firearms ownership, which rendered political opponents and Jews defenseless. A skeptic could surmise that a better-armed populace might have made no difference, but the National Socialist regime certainly did not think so — it ruthlessly suppressed firearm ownership by disfavored groups.
