The 14-year-old boy was shot and killed within a block of a welcoming elementary school, Melody Stem School , 3937 W. Wilcox. It’s at least the third fatal shooting along or near a Safe Passage route since mid-August.

‘Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire’ – Movie gun grabbers don’t want you to see

June 11, 2013

Last week, we brought you an interview with Kris Koenig, director of “Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire,” an upcoming documentary that supports the Second Amendment and delves into America’s ongoing gun debate. With the film coming to theaters on June 20, TheBlaze has two exclusive clips that provide a lens into its controversial and captivating contents.

The first exclusive video, an interview with gun expert and renowned Hollywood firearms supplier Mike Tristano, offers up some intriguing content. In the clip, Tristano decries the media’s coverage of gun control issues and accuses the press of “exploitative yellow journalism.”

“When I’m watching television and I see some reporter on there’s that’s saying that an assault weapon or any weapon that fires one of these high-power rounds is meant to kill and that’s all it’s used for — that’s not true at all,” he says. “And they just don’t know what they’re even talking about, but because they think it’s going to be good for their news program — and its exploitative yellow journalism.”

NBC News caught for 6th time selectively editing video for the Liberal Left

May 5, 2013

I had hoped this nonsense would end with the reign of Steve Capus, but once again we have NBC News forced to apologize for yet-another dishonest edit meant to push the left’s agenda.
Thanks to NRO’s Andrew Johnson, we learned that on Friday MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts used selective clips from a speech by Vice President Joe Biden to make it look as though Biden was making a push for gun control. Biden’s speech had nothing to do with guns.

Obama never lets a Dead Child go to waste

April 29, 2013

As harsh as that variation on a theme might sound, it is more disturbing still that this has become one of the primary policy devices of the American left to advance their political agenda.
Most know the famous admission by Rahm Emanuel regarding a good crisis, but few of us can confess to the foresight to predict just how cravenly this overt policy of exploitation would come to be implemented. That it has been practiced at the expense of the populace and the security of our country is a fact, but the truth remains too distasteful for some to fully grasp.
The president does not mean well, and he is not trying to make things better. He is flooding us, overwhelming us, because constant emergencies require constant statist solutions.

Someone ask Michelle why Obama won’t make Chicago enforce existing gun laws

April 11, 2013

CHICAGO (TheBlaze/AP) — First lady Michelle Obama made a deeply personal entrance into the gun debate Wednesday, the eve of a showdown in Congress, by comparing herself to the honor student from her hometown shot to death a week after performing as a majorette in the presidential inaugural parade.

Mrs. Obama told a conference on youth violence that the new gun regulations her husband proposed in response to Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting deserve a vote in Congress. But she says reducing daily gun deaths in places like Chicago, with its 500 homicides last year, also will require an intensive effort by community leaders.

As part of a rare foray into a policy debate, Mrs. Obama highlighted the case of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, shot in the back Jan. 29 while hanging out with friends at a park, about a mile from the Obamas’ South Side home. Mrs. Obama attended Pendleton’s funeral and said she was struck by how familiar the Pendleton family seemed to her own.

“Hadiya Pendleton was me and I was her,” Mrs. Obama said. “But I got to grow up and go to Princeton and Harvard Law School and have a career and a family and the most blessed life I could ever imagine.”

NBC won’t cover Chicago’s refusal to enforce gun laws

March 26, 2013

During a March 24 appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press, the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre explained that Chicago is big on gun control, small on enforcement of existing gun laws–and he asked why NBC News won’t cover this.
In fact, LaPierre told David Gregory that Syracuse University’s track data on enforcement of federal gun laws in 2012 shows that “out of 90 jurisdictions in the country, [Chicago] ranked 90th.”
This substantiates claims the NRA has been making for years. Namely, that the problem isn’t a lack of gun laws but a lack of enforcement of existing gun laws.
LaPierre then asked Gregory:
Why doesn’t NBC News start with, “Shocking news on Chicago. Of all the jurisdictions in the country Chicago is dead last on enforcement of federal gun laws?” Why doesn’t the national press corps, with they’re sitting there with Jay Carney and the President and the Vice President, why don’t they say, “Why is Chicago dead last in enforcement of gun laws against gangs with guns, felons with guns, [and] drug dealers with guns?”
To this, Gregory’s meager response was: “And you support those as felonies, being charged as felonies?”
LaPierre responded that the NRA absolutely does. And not only that, he wants those who are charged with felonies to be taken off the street so they can’t keep committing crimes for which law-abiding citizens are being blamed.
Said LaPierre: “If you’re the President and the Vice President, and the Attorney General, and your job is to enforce these laws against…drug dealers, gangs, and felons that are walking around with guns in the street, and you don’t do it? [Then] you bear some responsibility. It is a tragedy.”
