WILL AMNESTY CREATE GUN OWNERS http://dailycaller.com/2013/08/02/korwin-theres-lead-in-the-amnesty-ointment/ A small silver lining if amnesty happens and millions of new Latinos become American citizens -- they become eligible for gun ownership (illegal aliens are prohibited possessors, they would lose that status). With luck and enough promo, a lot might swell the ranks of proud, free gun owners and rights advocates.
LAWS IN SECRET http://dailycaller.com/2013/04/08/gun-law-drafted-in-secret/ Violating every rule of law, legislators are now resorting to drafting laws in secret -- they know if we saw what they’re up to, we might be in open revolt. The laws are illegal infringements, violate their oaths, and now are being disregarded, covered here in my article on The Daily Caller.
SUBARMING http://dailycaller.com/2015/07/30/the-effort-to-subarm-america This requires a new word, revealed here in The Daily Caller, this effort to “subarm” Americans, with inferior guns, small calibers, limited amounts of ammunition, and swing the balance of power to the “officials,” exactly what our Founders fought against.
BKGRD CHECK IS TRANSFER BAN http://dailycaller.com/2015/08/14/the-dangerous-background-check-lie/ Total gun registration is being passed off as universal background checks (when you read the bills) and a transfer ban -- simply handing a gun to a friend becomes a crime unless you register it. The public spin is a coveup, and The Daily Caller helped me call them on it. Freedom is being cast as a loophole to be fixed by the left.
30-ROUND MAGAZINES for legislators
Legislators asked me to prepare talking points refuting the arguments against 30-round magazines; The Daily Caller has published my full list: depriving us of gear as a way to stop murderers is misguided, puts you at risk, and is a thinly disguised effort to get to zero-round magazines -- in the false dangerous belief that disarming innocent people will finally disarm criminals. http://dailycaller.com/2015/12/18/korwin-talking-points-for-the-30-round-magazine-debate/
GUN MYTHS -- THE REAL GUN PROBLEM Gun deniers and the anti-rights advocates, largely out of blind fear, continually invent gun myths, a projection of their internal terrors. From "cooling-down periods" to dum-dum bullets, they interfere with focus on the real problems. Here is a list of dozens of phony stoppages to crucial programs like Arm-The-Pilots and national carry, where guns didn't "just go off" and life got better, despite their interference, which has to stop. http://dailycaller.com/2015/12/21/korwin-americas-real-gun-problem-the-gun-myths/
OBAMA PRAISES McCAIN’S GUN SHOW BAN
In his town-hall gun-control show, Obama praised John McCain’s gun-show “loophole” bill as a good place to start, and scolded Congress for not passing it -- 15 years ago. The bill was total deception and would have effectively closed gun shows altogether. It required registering anyone who entered with the FBI, whether they shopped or not, and getting prior federal permission to even run a show -- which feds didn't have to issue -- just a pack of lies built on lies. http://dailycaller.com/2016/01/14/korwin-obamas-gun-control-starts-with-myth
OBAMA PRAISES MANCHIN-TOOMEY
Obama singled out the Manchin-Toomey gun-control bill as a good bill that should have been enacted. In the most deceitful way, the bill would do exactly the opposite of what its promoters said it would do. Sort of, if you like your plan you can keep your plan, but for guns. I read it, and explain it here. http://dailycaller.com/2016/01/15/korwin-the-manchin-toomey-gun-myth
THE “BITS” MYTH
My ongoing series about gun myths invented by progressives, out of psychological terrors that drive them, focuses here on the BITS myth, “Blood In The Streets.” It is at the root of most of the rest. Many liberals' mental state is so fragile if they had guns they might be tempted to snap and start senselessly shooting people nearby. They project this fear onto those around them, and create other myths that interfere with arriving at real solutions to crime and the muslim jihad. 1/27/16 http://dailycaller.com/2016/01/27/korwin-gun-myth-debunked-armed-citizens-will-cause-blood-in-the-streets/
GUN MYTHS: COP KILLERS, ARMED PILOTS, DUM DUMS
My series on Gun Myths for The Daily Caller continues with this entry on phony cop-killer bullets (any round fired at an officer -- or you! -- is attempted murder); baseless fear of armed pilots from people who thought the Goldfinger movie was real (and delayed this important airline safety program for years); and phony dum-dum bullet nonsense that almost prevented police (and us!) from carrying safer hollowpoint ammunition. 2/3/16 http://dailycaller.com/2016/02/03/korwin-gun-myths-debunked-cop-killer-bullets-and-armed-pilots-myth/
THE NO-FLY LIE MUST DIE
Are people on the no-fly list so dangerous they can walk past airport checkpoints with guns, knives and bombs because the scanners don't work on them? That's why we need the list? Are the checkpoints just there to keep us in line? But wait -- those people can still take Amtrak to Cincinnati, or drive, bus or walk, they're free to roam anywhere because they're not charged with anything. Or convicted of anything. They just can't fly. You get on the list in secret, without rules. And now Obama wants to ban you from gun ownership based on this list. If you object, he says "that's insane" (his words). Daily Caller blows the lid off this confiscation plan we all knew was coming, that has democrats cheering with him on TV. 2/12/16 http://dailycaller.com/2016/02/12/korwin-no-fly-list-no-buy-list-gun-confiscation-list/
GUN MYTHS: INVISIBLE GUNS AND “UNCOMMON” SELF DEFENSE
Of all the preposterous nonsense anti-gun-rights people have concocted, “invisible” x-ray-proof guns may be the most bizarre. They did this when the superb Glock safe-action pistol was introduced, and became the choice of police departments worldwide. Easily spotted at airport checkpoints, their fears were baseless, but they once again interfered with reality. The claim that self defense is uncommon, because it never appears on nightly news is just a measure of bias in news rooms, that won't show the millions of annual defensive gun uses. 2/17/16 http://dailycaller.com/2016/02/17/korwin-the-undetectable-gun-myth-if-self-defense-was-common-news-would-report-it-to-you-myth/
GUN MYTHS: THE “EVIL” GUN LOBBY AND GUN “BUY BACKS”
To believe the media narrative you’d think the NRA is more powerful than the top 50 real power lobbies, like banks, drug makers, import-export, telecom, computers, railroads, automakers, retail, lawyers and the rest. It's not even just the NRA, it’s the 100 million gun owners who cling to their guns and rights. As far as phony gun buy-back schemes, criminals don't turn in their guns for $100 grocery cards, an the schemes are virtually illegal straw purchases, using out-of-state money and ought to be prosecuted. 2/19/16 http://dailycaller.com/2016/02/19/korwin-the-big-bad-gun-lobby-gun-buy-back-myths/
SCOTUS GAY MARRIAGE QUESTION SOLVED
This was my first column for Townhall.com. It got me on their roster with Thomas Sowell, Hugh Hewitt, Dennis Prager, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter and more. My concern, ahead of the Supreme Court’s 2015 decision on gay marriage, was that it could plunge us deeper into a mess that has already caused grave harm to the nation. I took an approach no one took, which I guessed the High Court would miss -- and they did -- the First Amendment forbids government involvement in holy matrimony. http://townhall.com/columnists/alankorwin/2015/06/23/holy-matrimony-batman-n2016342
ARM THE ARMY
The muslim jihadi assault on unarmed soldiers at a recruitment station in Tennessee alerted the nation to the vulnerable state of affairs in the military, and led Congress to introduce five bills to arm the Army, since the Commander in Chief, Mr. Hussein-Obama isn’t acting for reasons that were unclear at press time. It will still take forever to get the job done. Read the about each bill and the problems. http://townhall.com/columnists/alankorwin/2015/08/17/arm-the-army-part-i-n2039919
WHY THE NO-FLY LIE MUST DIE
Obama says on TV it is "insane" for a person on the no-fly list to walk into a store and buy a gun. Democrats in his audience cheer wildly, while "news" media remains ominously silent. People on the list aren't charged with anything, convicted of nothing, are put on the list secretly by police (a secret police list!) with no rules for how you get on, no notification until you can't fly, but you can still travel any other way -- it is completely arbitrary. The man whose oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution wants to take your gun rights by simply adding you to a list. Are those people so dangerous airport scanners don't work on them? The whole thing is beyond outrageous, but his side is cheering, and Townhall blows up the scheme, the details will blow your mind. http://townhall.com/columnists/alankorwin/2016/02/12/why-the-nofly-lie-must-die-n2118179
