Zero Hedge: An oft-echoed line from the left is “No One Wants To Take Your Guns!” But as Kurt Schlichter notes, this is another classic lie.
In fact, that’s exactly what liberals want to do. How do we know? They tell us when they think we are not looking – and, with more frequency, when we are. It’s fun when they say they don’t want to take your guns, then say you have to give up your ARs. If your opponent is getting wistful about Australia’s gun confiscation, he wants to take your guns.
Let’s get serious. They all want to take your guns. Why? Two reasons. First, it takes power from the citizenry. Liberals love that. Second, gun rights are important to normal Americans because the fact we maintain arms means we are not mere subjects. more …
Opinion: The day of the Parkland shooting a text thread of around 14 family members began flying among several states.

In every mass shooting from 2009-17, Barack Obama stood on the world stage and did the exact same thing. After winning in 2012, Obama sent John Kerry scurrying to the UN to sign the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) in an end run around America’s domestic reluctance to adopt a gun control agenda.
Obama reasoned that if Congress and the state legislatures wouldn’t pass gun control, why not get the UN to make it a permanent part of its agenda, or even better, part of international law?
All of that is a reminder of what could have happened in the last election had Hillary Clinton won, and what could happen in the 2018 mid-terms if Republicans give up the House.
