Time to cancel your subscriptions, Guns and Ammo Editor Dick Metcalf has penned an editorial for their December issue that will be leaving fans in shock; he’s supporting gun control. Metcalf claims there is a large difference between regulation, (well-regulated militia) and a direct infringement of civil rights, he has made this distinction the premise of his claims.
“I bring this up,” he wrote, “because way too many gun owners still believe that any regulation of the right to keep and bear arms is an infringement. The fact is that all Constitutional rights are regulated, always have been, and need to be.” Facepalm moment anyone? Now that Metcalf is no longer in a fit mental capacity to be left alone, someone should send Adult Protective services over for a welfare check.
“Many argue that any regulation at all is, by definition, an infringement. If that were true, then the authors of the Second Amendment themselves, should not have specified “well-regulated.”

Racism and guns go together.
That’s the finding of an international study released Thursday that says the two are linked. More specifically, odds are greater that a racist white American also keeps a gun at home and opposes gun control regulations.
It’s a classic dog bites man story: liberal establishmentarians find what they want to find, then arrogantly assume we are dumb enough to take them seriously as they use their “evidence” to promote their tyrannical policy initiatives.
The levels of moonbattery and idiocy are astonishing:
“There had already been research showing that … blacks are more likely to be shot, so we thought there must be something happening between the concept of being black and some whites wanting guns,” Monash researcher Kerry O’Brien said in an email to the Daily News.
Why not do a study of who shot all these blacks — whites or other blacks? Or a study of the percentage of whites shooting blacks that resulted from the black breaking into the white’s home? Or a study of which race is most likely to own firearms illegally? No chance. The findings would be racist.
O’Brien denounces gun ownership as “illogical” and calls upon the US government to coercively fund more studies like his own.
Gallup says that 21% of US gun owners are black. Technically yes more whites own guns — but only because blacks comprise a mere 13% of the population, not the 50% you would gather from watching TV commercials.
Authoritarian ideologues pass this crap off as science, and promoting it as journalism.
Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino – “It’s to the point where these (Obama) scandals in and of themselves would be huge, backbreaking scandals are just lost in the ‘scandal fog’ of this administration,” he said in disbelief. “It’s worse than people know; I’m not trying to scare you either.”
