How Bloomberg Fudged the Numbers to Claim Gun Control Reduced CT Firearms Fatalities

Our man Leghorn did an excellent job fisking the gun control movement’s claim that “tight” gun control laws led to a reduction in firearms-related homicides. The National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Legislative and Policy Research Director Elizabeth Karasmeighan had a bash at Bloomberg’s anti-ballistic bile, too ant it’s worth a second look . . . A recent study  published in the American Journal of Public Health makes the spurious claim that Connecticut’s 10-year old handgun permit-to-purchase law kept the state’s firearms homicide rates (FHRs) lower than it otherwise would have been. To get to this unfounded conclusion, the authors, all from the anti-gun Bloomberg…

BREAKING: Leland Yee (D-CA) Pleads Guilty to Gun Running Charges

We reported on California state senator Leland Yee’s antics many times over the years. The former senator was one of the first to propose sweeping restrictions on 3D printers, lest one of the unwashed masses of California use one to print a firearm in that gun-free paradise. In the ultimate ironic twist, it turns out that Leland Yee was involved in an illegal plot to start running firearms into the state of California — illegally providing the very firearms he was publicly decrying. Specifically machine guns. Actual machine guns. And rocket launchers. One could make the connection that Yee’s political…

Waco Judge Bans Release of Biker Shooting Video, Gags Case Against Cops

We’ve been reporting on the Waco biker shooting since the Twin Peaks incident first hit the ‘net. The first clue that the authorities were covering up the police shootings: the cops arrested 100 people at the scene. Then the judge set bail at an absurd, unconstitutional $1 million each. Then the Justice of the Peace released the autopsy results on the nine people killed in the shoot-out/massacre – without specifying which victims were killed by police (easy enough as the cops were firing 5.56 ammo from rifles). And now that cases are heading to court, there’s more evidence that there’s…
