Donald Trump has more than doubled his national lead in the Republican presidential race ahead of Thursday night’s GOP debate here, according to the results from a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Trump is the first choice of 33 percent of national Republican primary voters – his highest percentage in the poll. He’s followed by Ted Cruz at 20 percent, Marco Rubio at 13 percent and Ben Carson at 12 percent. Chris Christie and Jeb Bush are tied at five percent. No other Republican presidential candidate gets more than 3 percent.

Trump’s 13-point lead over Cruz is an increase from last month, when he held a five-point advantage over the Texas senator, 27 percent to 22 percent.

With only weeks until the starting gun sounds off in Iowa, it’s time to face some hard truths. In particular, the truth we’ve all denied for months as we chanted, “Trump can’t win” into the wind like a mantra. I’ve spent most of that time believing there is no possibility of a Trump nomination. And now, nearly eight months after he fumbled onto the scene with a 45-minute improv session in front of reporters, it’s time to come to terms with reality. Trump could be the Republican nominee for president. And his alternative could be much worse.

From Obamacare, to Dodd-Frank, to an out-of-control EPA, to myriad executive orders and tax increases, Americans are increasingly appalled by Obama’s massive expansion of government, the size of which has not been seen since the Depression, in the early days of FDR. At the same time, Americans continue to witness a nearly jobless recovery, soaring health care costs, civil unrest, rising domestic terrorism, a government that continuously lies, governmental intrusion into nearly every aspect of their lives, and a complete lack of accountability when all problems – foreign and domestic – are growing worse.

Recently more and more conservative pundits are begrudgingly joining the ranks of those who have concluded that the bombastic Republican front runner, Donald Trump, has brilliantly made himself the leader of those who still love their country but hate their government. He’s both a presidential candidate and a symptom of their hatred. And while he appears to be greatly enjoying the adulation, there is a serious danger resulting from his fomenting an even greater disgust and contempt for the agencies of the American government.

Americans Send Obama Message, Set Firearm Purchase Record

Tags: No Tags

Published on: January 12, 2016

Background checks may not stop criminals from getting guns, but new data on the number of checks make the case that Americans are not as enthusiastic about gun control as President Barack Obama wants people to believe.

On Monday, the day before Obama announced a series of executive actions on gun control, the FBI reported that there were record-shattering numbers of background checks for firearm purchases and permits in the month of December and for the entire year of 2015.

A whopping 3.3 million firearm-related checks were conducted in December, the highest one-month tally in the history of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). That’s 43.5 percent more than in December 2014, when there were only 2.3 million. The record-shattering number came about after the White House announced that Obama would issue a series of executive actions on gun control this month. The previous one-month high, 2.8 million in December 2012, came about after Obama declared that gun control would be a top priority during his final term of office.

The current surge, while spiking in December, began earlier in the year. The monthly tallies for May-November 2015 were the highest on record for those months too. All told, 2015 had the highest number for a single year, 23.1 million, a 10 percent increase (that’s two million plus) over the annual totals for 2013 and 2014. The trend suggests that Americans’ opposition to Obama’s anti-gun agenda has increased to an all-time high, and would be even higher for Hillary Clinton’s even more ambitious anti-gun presidential campaign platform.

Handguns, the type of gun that most gun control supporters most would like to see banned, accounted for 57 percent of checks conducted for the purchase of a single type of firearm in 2015. In December, however, 58 percent were for long guns, presumably driven by the purchase of the immensely popular AR-15 and other detachable-magazine semi-automatic rifles, which gun control supporters call “assault weapons.” The new NICS numbers, taken in conjunction with firearm manufacturing, firearm importation, and firearm ownership survey data, suggest that Americans now own well over eight million AR-15s, and the number is growing at roughly a million a year.

The surge in firearm purchases suggests that gun control supporters cannot possibly believe their bogus claim that “40 percent” of firearms are sold without background checks. If the claim were true, it would mean that there were about 34 million guns sold in 2015, at which point Michael Bloomberg would have realized that it’s “game over for gun control,” time to turn out the lights at Everytown HQ and resume his busybody battle against soda pop.

One thing is certain, however. If firearm ownership continues to expand at its current rate, there really could be a day in the not too distant future when Bloomberg, Obama, Clinton and those who share their goals will have to wonder whether there is any point in continuing to indulge their anti-gun obsessions.

Obumbler Issues Executive Actions on Guns

Published on: January 12, 2016

On Tuesday, the president announced a series of gun control actions in the form of “executive actions” during a lengthy press conference at the White House. Throughout, the president made it abundantly clear that restricting the rights of America’s law-abiding gun owners will remain his focus in the last year of his tenure.

We saw something very similar in January 2013, when Obama said he would not wait for Congress to act on gun control and unilaterally imposed 23 executive actions on guns, insisting they would help save lives. Then, as now, what was missing from Obama’s statements was any substantiation – or even any convincing explanation – of how his restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms would save lives, or impact public safety in a meaningful way.

Once again, we were asked to accept as an article of faith that diminishing the rights of the law-abiding will somehow influence the actions of violent criminals or others intent on harm.

Anti-gun elites and groups had been proclaiming for weeks that Obama was going to “close the private sale loophole” with one of his executive actions. What the president did, however, was something entirely different. He essentially warned gun owners that lawful behavior might not be, in fact, lawful.

Thanks to a carefully drafted statute enacted in 1986, the president had relatively little room to maneuver in this regard. Those reforms were part of the NRA-supported Firearm Owners’ Protection Act. They were enacted specifically in response to abusive practices by the ATF, which included treating occasional sales of personal firearms as unlicensed “dealing” or seizing private firearm collections, on the pretext that they were the “inventory” of illegal “dealers.”

At the end of the day, the administration’s big move on background checks was, instead, a 15-page brochure or “guidance” which explains the relevant federal statutes and regulations concerning firearms dealing and summarizing its view of the controlling case law. Even though the president cannot unilaterally expand the law, he can still instill fear in gun owners and intimidate them into believing that private transfers are now illegal. ATF can take his directive push the envelope with marginal cases that would be ignored in a less agenda-driven administration. They may well be looking to “make an example” of somebody, especially in the realm of sales advertised online.

Obviously, chilling otherwise lawful firearms transfers could be just as effective as restricting such activity with passage of a new law or regulation. There can be little doubt the president knows this and why he and administration officials have repeatedly said, “even 1 or 2 sales” can make one a dealer.

Based on evidence from past practices, the administration will likely try to have it both ways – revoke licenses for “dealers” who don’t sell a “sufficient” number of firearms, but prosecute those who sell a small number of firearms without a license. In the 1980’s for example, there was evidence of ATF revoking the FFL of a person because he only sold three guns during the year, while simultaneously prosecuting another person for selling three guns that year without a license. And during the Clinton administration, after ATF had forced low-volume private sellers to become FFLs, the agency then aggressively reduced the number of FFLs for lack of business activity.

On another front, one of Obama’s other announcements was that the Social Security Administration (SSA) continues to work on combing the rolls of its beneficiaries to find pretexts to report them to NICS as “mental defectives.” We had reported on this effort last summer, after the LA Times initially broke the story. The acting secretary of SSA assured Congress that the agency did not intend to follow the lead of the Veteran’s Administration and arbitrarily report every beneficiary that had another party appointed to assist the beneficiary with management of finances. Nevertheless, by the administration’s own admission, the pending move could affect 75,000 Social Security beneficiaries a year.

To date, SSA has not released details of its plan, but it appears that its rollout will at least be a formal and public rulemaking process. We will follow developments closely and keep you up to date on information you need to know and actions you need to take.

The administration also finally released its final rule in 41P, a rulemaking that originally would have expanded what amounts to a local law enforcement veto of applications under the National Firearms Act (NFA) to the realm of trusts and other legal entities. Your NRA filed lengthy comments in opposition to that rule, and was joined in that effort by thousands of other gun owners, lawyers, law enforcement officers, and industry members who also registered their disapproval.

As a result, not only does the final rule refrain from expanding the veto, it eliminates it from the NFA entirely, including in the realm of transfers to private individuals. The NFA’s so-called local “CLEO sign-off” procedure is no more, being replaced with simpler requirement to notify the local CLEO that an application has been filed.

Trusts and legal entities, however, will face more bureaucracy with NFA transactions, as they will now have to identify all “responsible persons” associated with the entity and provide photographs and fingerprints of them to ATF for the purpose of background checks. A responsible person means an individual in the organization who has the power and authority to direct the management and policies of the entity insofar as they pertain to firearms. NRA lawyers continue to comb through the lengthy final rule in 41P, and we will report more on it separately.

Obama also pledged to use the leverage of the U.S. government as the nation’s leading arms procurer to develop and promote the use of so-called “smart-gun” technology. During his press conference, he repeatedly referred to features of his iPhone and iPad and suggested that they could be incorporated into firearms. The White House press release seems to suggest that the plan is to phase in the technology through its adoption first by government agents, with the private sector presumably following suit after that.

Whatever the benefits of tracking features and fingerprint recognition might be in the public sector, however, individuals in the private market has shown little interest in trusting their safety and freedom to such technology. Time will tell what, if anything, will come of this. Although NRA is not opposed to the development of new firearms technology, we do not believe the government should be picking winners and losers in the marketplace. As with all advancements, the market itself should be the driver, with consumers the ultimate arbiter of which product developments will succeed.

Indeed, the onerous effects Obama’s executive actions in 2013 are not fully realized. Similarly, it will take time for the impact of his latest actions to be fully felt and understood. In the meantime, Obama continues his kingly rein, criminals and terrorists continue to blithely ignore the law, and the rest of us are left to parse through vague and confusing federal proclamations and “guidance” materials to hold onto what’s left of our rights.

Obama Misleads, Cites Bogus Data at CNN “Town Hall”

Published on: January 12, 2016

On Thursday, January 7, President Barack Obama appeared in the CNN-produced “Guns in America,” an invitation-only “town hall” held on the campus of George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. Immediately following the forum, CNN shifted to several pundits who offered their analysis of the event. On hand was former Obama administration “Special Advisor for Green Jobs” Van Jones, who, perhaps unintentionally, offered some of the most astute observations of the evening. Jones admitted Obama answered some of the questions “poorly,” later adding that “some of his answers made my skin crawl,” implying that the president does not truly know the issue or understand America’s culture of gun ownership.

This is an accurate assessment of the president’s performance, as Obama repeatedly mischaracterized the concerns many Americans have pertaining to their gun rights and cited faulty information to further his arguments.

Mischaracterization of gun owner concerns over confiscation: The president repeatedly labelled the widely-held belief that there is a concerted effort to ban and confiscate firearms as a conspiracy theory. When pressed by host Anderson Cooper about whether the term was appropriate for these concerns, Obama doubled-down on his assertion.

Gun owner fears of confiscation are well-founded. The president has repeatedly cited the confiscatory gun control regimes of the United Kingdom and Australia while advocating gun controls here at home. Democratic presidential frontrunner, and former Obama administration official, Hillary Clinton has expressed her support for an Australia-style mandatory gun turn-in.

The New York Times ran a front page editorial December 5, that noted, “Certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition, must be outlawed for civilian ownership. It is possible to define those guns in a clear and effective way and, yes, it would require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.” The President must hold some measure of respect for the paper, as he penned an anti-gun column that appeared in its January 8 edition.

In 1995, the author of the 1994 “assault weapons” ban, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) expressed her support for confiscation, telling 60 Minutes, “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them—‘Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in,’ I would have done it.”

Further, a founding goal of the gun control movement in the United States was the abolition of private handgun ownership. As former president of the National Coalition to Control Handguns (now known as the Brady Campaign) said in a 1976 interview, “The first problem is to slow down the number of handguns being produced and sold in this country. The second problem is to get handguns registered. The final problem is to make possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition—except for the military, police, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs and licensed gun collectors—totally illegal.”

A conspiracy typically requires secrecy. The refreshingly candid behavior of prominent gun control advocates has exposed their confiscatory designs to all.

Misrepresentation of defensive gun use and the dangerousness of firearms in the home: In response to a question from rape survivor Kimberly Corban regarding defensive gun use, the president stated, “there’s no doubt that there are times where somebody who has a weapon has been able to protect themselves and scare off an intruder or an assailant, but what is more often the case is that they may not have been able to protect themselves, but they end up being the victim of the weapon that they purchased themselves.” He also contended, “What is true is, is that you have to be pretty well trained in order to fire a weapon against somebody who is assaulting you and catches you by surprise.”

Here the president is likely alluding to the widely-debunked work of Arthur L. Kellermann that popularized the notion amongst gun control supporters that a firearm in the home makes the home less safe. The methodology of the studies purporting that guns make a home less safe has been soundly refuted by Florida State University Criminologist Gary Kleck and others, and such studies routinely discount the actual number of defensive gun uses. Kleck called the popularized statistic from Kellerman’s work, “the most nonsensical statistic in the gun control debate.” In truth, guns have been used for self-defense up to 2.5 million times per year.

Implying that NFA trusts are used by criminals: In regards to federal rulemaking involving trusts used for the ownership of firearms registered under the National Firearms Act, the president said, “we don’t know whether — are these sales going to, you know, drug traffickers? Are they — we don’t know who’s purchasing them right now. And so what we’re saying is, you know what? That is something that we got to do something about.”

Obama’s words imply that current rules governing NFA trusts facilitate dangerous individuals acquiring firearms, but the federal government has almost no evidence that they are used in this fashion. NRA research during the rulemaking process did not uncover a single instance where an NFA firearm registered to a private legal entity was used in the commission of a crime. Moreover, ATF has only cited three cases where a person prohibited from firearm ownership was in some way connected to a trust, and it is unclear as to whether these individuals ever took possession of a trust–owned firearm.

Implying more guns, more crime?: In trying to downplay the fact that violent crime has decreased significantly, while the number of guns owned by the American public has continued to rise, Obama stated, “Now, I challenge the notion that the reason for that is because there’s more gun ownership, because if you look at where are the areas with the highest gun ownership, those are the places in some cases where the crime rate hasn’t dropped down that much. And the places where there’s pretty stiff restrictions on gun ownership, in some of those places, the crime has dropped really quickly.”

There is no correlation between the severity of a state’s gun control laws and its crime rates. The FBI has identified over a dozen factors that determine the type and amount of crime that takes place in any jurisdiction, and gun control laws are not on the FBI’s list.

Obama is trying to deflect public attention from the fact that reality has proven that gun control supporters are fundamentally wrong. For decades, they have claimed that the expansion of gun ownership and legal recognition of firearm ownership rights must, by necessity, cause crime to increase. But what has happened in reality, is that as more people have acquired more guns, of the types that gun control supporters most loathe (handguns and semi-automatic rifles and shotguns), and more people have carried guns for protection in more states, violent crime has dropped to a 44-year low and murder, in particular, has also reached an all-time low. At the same time, public opinion has shifted against gun control and in favor of firearm ownership rights.

Disputing accurate information on background checks: At one point, Cooper questioned Obama, asking, “The vast majority of criminals get their guns from — either illegally or for family or friends. So background checks is not something that’s going to affect them, is it?” to which Obama responded, “Well, but that’s not exactly accurate.”

Actually, it is accurate. The Department of Justice has repeatedly found that most criminals who use guns, get their guns by theft, from the black market, or from acquaintances. Further, ATF has determined that nearly half of illegally trafficked firearms are because of straw purchasers, such as allegedly occurred in the San Bernardino terror attack. Even Obama’s Department of Justice has reported that less than 1% of guns used in crime are acquired at gun shows.

Conflating traffic accidents with firearms misuse: The president continually noted the progress that has been made in diminishing traffic fatalities, in arguing for further gun control measures.

It is apples-vs.-oranges to compare deaths involving motor vehicles, almost all of which are accidents, with those involving firearms, only a fraction of which are accidents. Accidental deaths involving motor vehicles vastly outnumber those involving firearms, 35,398 to 586 in 2014.

Claim that NRA opposes “smart gun” technology: In discussing his recent efforts to use taxpayer money to fund “smart gun” development, the president lamented what he views as efforts to stymie this technology. He added, “I would think there might be a market for that. You could sell that gun… in any other area, in any other product, any other commercial venture, there’d be some research and development on that, because that’s a promising technology.”

First, NRA is not opposed to the development of “smart gun” technology. NRA is however, opposed to mandating that firearms contain such technology. This mandate is a goal of gun control proponents, as evidenced by New Jersey statute. NRA does not support using taxpayer money to fund research into technology that gun owners have demonstrated they do not want, as evidenced by its lack of prevalence in the marketplace.

Second, there is in fact ongoing development of “smart gun” technology by some in the private sector, as evidenced by the Armatix iP1. Those interested in learning more about this firearm should see NRA’s review of the handgun.

Use of biased information on private transfers initiated through the internet: In relation to private transfers initiated by use of the internet, the president noted, “one study has shown that 1 out of 30 persons who are purchasing weapons over the Internet turn out to have a felony record, and that’s not something you want to see.”

In truth, the “study” in question was conducted by Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun activist group. It was not peer-reviewed. They skimmed thousands of “for sale” listings, were able to identify the poster in a small number of instances, and found that one in 30 of them had the same name as someone with a disqualifying criminal history. Obviously, nobody really knows how Bloomberg’s group put the data together, how accurate (or inaccurate) the data is, and whether or not other controlling factors (such as differences in reporting across jurisdictions) was controlled for. This methodology is so fatally flawed it doesn’t warrant mention by anyone, let alone the president.

Mischaracterization of CDC gun control funding ban: The president stated, “Right now, Congress prohibits us even studying, through the Center for Disease Control, ways in which we could reduce gun violence. That’s how crazy this thing has become.”

In the 1980s and 90s CDC advocated against firearm ownership. For instance, in a December 1993 Rolling Stone article that included an interview with CDC official Mark Rosenberg, cited Rosenberg’s focus as, “He envisions a long-term campaign, similar to those on tobacco use and auto safety, to convince Americans that guns are, first and foremost, a public-health menace.”

Holding that the American taxpayer should not be forced to pay for research advocating the diminution of their rights, NRA supported restricting this type of activity with an appropriations rider reading, “Provided further, that none of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may be used to advocate or promote gun control.” As is made clear by the text of the rider, the ban is on advocacy, not research.

Further, there are ample private resources available to researchers interested in anti-gun advocacy. The work of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for Gun Policy and Research, funded by billionaire Michael Bloomberg, is one example.

To the man I sat next to on my way in to Boston:

When I boarded the commuter rail, you were already in the midst of a spirited phone conversation and didn’t seem to care about how loud you were talking. You were talking with someone about the Paris train attack and the growing epidemic of gun violence in America.

You spoke about the “murderous NRA” and “bloodthirsty gun nuts” who were causing our schools to “run red with blood.” You spoke profanely of the Republicans who opposed President Obama’s call for “sensible gun control,” and you lamented the number of “inbred redneck politicians” who have “infiltrated Capitol Hill.”

I found myself amazed at the irony of the situation. While you were spewing your venom, I sat quietly next to you with my National Rifle Association membership card in my wallet and my 9mm pistol in its holster. You were only 12 inches away from my legally owned semiautomatic pistol. I suppose I didn’t look like the “bloodthirsty gun nut” you thought I should be. It apparently didn’t register to you that I could so cleverly disguise myself by wearing a fleece coat, Patriots hat, and khakis.

“If we are going to fight for, protect and hand on to the next generation, the freedom that [President] Reagan spoke of … then we have to take the lead to restore the rule of law in America,” Abbott said during a speech at the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Policy Orientation that drew raucous applause from the conservative audience. He said he will ask lawmakers to pass a bill authorizing Texas to join other states calling for a Convention of States.
