There are two certainties following nearly every mass shooting event: Cable news television will have its programming schedule set for the next 72 hours, and a significant number of gun control advocates will reveal they lack even a basic understanding of the items they wish to regulate.

The first certainty is to be expected. After all, if it bleeds it leads. The second certainty is more remarkable.

It’s remarkable that so many proponents of stricter regulations appear to be generally ignorant of not just the minutiae of firearms, but also the basics. It’s also remarkable that this ignorance continues unabated, even after several recent mass shootings.

Journalists Adam Weinstein and Zack Beauchamp defend the generally ill-informed, claiming some in the pro-Second Amendment camp prefer to bully rather than educate those who don’t fully grasp the topic.

Weinstein is correct when he writes, “The onus should be on those citizens who own the weapons technology, and purport to understand it, to share that understanding with the skeptical and less-informed.”

Beauchamp also notes that there’s a big difference between correcting a gun control advocate who’s “actually writing the legislation” versus “a random citizen deciding whether to support a new [assault weapons ban].”

  • The fall, revealed by Nasa satellites, has been caused by the end of El Nino


By David Rose

Global average temperatures over land have plummeted by more than 1C since the middle of this year – their biggest and steepest fall on record. According to satellite data, the late 2016 temperatures are returning to the levels they were at after the 1998 El Nino.

The news comes amid mounting evidence that the recent run of world record high temperatures is about to end. The fall, revealed by Nasa satellite measurements of the lower atmosphere, has been caused by the end of El Nino – the warming of…

OH LOOK! Even MORE Hate Crimes Hoaxes Reported By Anti-Trump Sore Losers!

Do these special snowflakes ever stop to think that, if there really were so many racist hate crimes going on since Trump was elected, they might not have to make up fake ones just for the sake of AWAAAAARNESS? That if real hate crimes were truly as prevalent as they want them to be, the rest of us would be perfectly aware of it?

So tired of their bullshit.

The editors of the Los Angeles Times want all guns banned. They just lack the integrity to say so in as many words.

“For those of us that actually know a few things about firearms, microstamping makes about as much sense as putting serial numbers on toilet paper squares or regulating unicorn farts.” – Bob Owens

Imagine: Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban one heartbeat away from the presidency. The billionaire who also happens to have a reality show says he would listen if either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, the presumptive nominees, approached him. “Absolutely,” Cuban replied when Chuck Todd asked him about running with Clinton on Sunday’s “Meet the Press.”…
