Biden, ATF gaslighting the public about ‘rogue’ gun dealers

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms recently called on Congress to block funding for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives until “Democrats and federal bureaucrats publicly recognize Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens, and stop their attacks on legal gun ownership.” If they lose all or part of

Uvalde cops now blame the AR for 21 murders, not their own cowardice

Law enforcement is dangerous. That’s why departments issue handguns, spare mags, Tasers, pepper spray, batons, shotguns, ARs and body armor, and spend millions of taxpayer dollars every year making sure their officers know how to use deadly force with some modicum of proficiency.
