Donald J. Trump on Tuesday appeared to raise the possibility that gun rights supporters could take matters into their own hands if Hillary Clinton is elected president and appoints judges who favor stricter gun control measures to the bench. At a rally here, Mr. Trump warned that it would be “a horrible day” if Mrs….

August 8, 2013 – Americans can buy guns and ammo at Walmart, but apparently they ban free speech. I stumbled across this fact today that back in 1996, Walmart objected to the Sheryl Crow song, "Love Is a Good Thing" that contained the lyrics: "Watch out sister, watch out brother, Watch our children as they kill each other, With a gun they bought at the Walmart discount stores". Reason #148 to not to shop at Walmart. Read more about this in a 2004 article on PBS.org here. Watch Sheryl Crow sing "Love is a Good Thing" live from CrowVideoTV2 below.
MAR 31, 2013 – After 8 years of George W. Bush illegally wiretapping, reading our emails and signing the Patriot Act and shredding the Constitution, Charlie Daniels and other conservative musicians hardly said a peep. Now, when President Obama simply wants to expand background checks for all gun purchases after the Newtown tragedy, Daniels is apparently all of a sudden concerned about the power of the federal government. He wrote an editorial on CNSNews.com implying black helicopters coming to take all of our guns away, and the federal government enslaving us or something. First, what took you so long Charlie to realize our federal government is growing in power and has been chipping away at our civil liberties? A black man finally getting elected? Why didn't you say anything when Bush and Cheney were radically altering the federal government and the reach of Executive Power?
Mr. Daniels wrote, 'Raw power is being handed over to the federal government in unprecedented and dangerous amounts and, once the power becomes strong enough, the true purposes will be exposed as America succumbs to the very dictatorial system it fought against for a century."
MAR 22, 2013 – Yoko Ono, in an effort to get behind sensible gun legislation, has tweeted pictures of John’s glasses he was wearing the night he was shot by a handgun, along with statistics of gun deaths and violence. The pictures are very moving, and show blood stains on the glasses. Check out the pictures at Yoko Ono’s Twitter page. JTMP recommends everyone contact their Congress Member and Senator and tell them you support sensible gun legislation, such as universal background checks, a ban on military-type assault rifles, and a ban on high-capacity magazines.
FEB 6, 2013 – Media Matters has a cool post up about how CNN gave way too much credit to gun nut Ted Nugent's crazy conspiracy theory about "Obama taking all our guns". As MM points out, CNN didn't tell Nugent that Obama's Executive Orders do not "take anybody's guns away". Check out the Media Matters article here.
