Do Gun Laws Stop Gun Crime?

By: Matt Winkeljohn - According to anti-gun crowd, a mass scale “assault weapons” ban would dramatically reduce gun crime.  This statement, of course, is not backed up by any factual data. According to the F.B.I., in 2012, there was approximately 1,214,462 violent crimes, 8,975,438 property crimes and 12,765 homicides.  While these numbers do not necessarily reflect the number of times a firearm was used in the commission of a crime, they do show that there was a reported 10,202,665 times that “the laws” didn’t stop a crime from being committed. The 1994 assault weapons ban shows a similar result. According to a study by the Jerry Lee Center of Criminology at the University of Pennsylvania, “we cannot clearly credit the ban with any of the nation’s recent drop in … Continue reading

TSA : Inconsistencies, Ineffectiveness And A Drain On Taxpayers


By: Matt Winkeljohn - After the events of September 11, 2001, George Bush signed the Aviation and Transportation Security Act.  This gave life to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which is a division of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The organization was charged with developing policies to protect U.S. transportation, especially in airport security and the prevention of aircraft hijacking.  As many government agencies, this has not only been ineffective, but also proven to be a complete waste of taxpayers money. At the tune of $8 billion per year of taxpayer money, not only hasn’t the TSA ever caught or stopped any terrorist, when it was actually time to do their job, they failed miserably.  These failures have cost taxpayers over $96 billion in the last 12 years. Ineffectiveness As … Continue reading

The “Evil” Gun Lobby : The Real Statistics


By : Matt Winkeljohn -   The NRA and its lobbyists have overpowered the will of the majority of Americans for too long. That is the slogan of a small, fringe anti-gun page called “Stop The NRA.” As usual, there are many wild claims touted by the left and anti-gunners about anyone who opposes their views.  They even go as far as to make claims like, “A vast majority of Americans support expanded gun control measures.”  That statement, of course, being totally fabricated. According to a 2014 poll from Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, since the beginning of 2013, there has never been a single month that more Americans supported gun control than opposed it.   This is of course very frustrating to the anti-gun groups. These groups … Continue reading

The Impeachment Of Barack Obama


By: Matt Winkeljohn - “Therefore, be it resolved that the South Dakota Republican Party calls on our U.S. Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States.” That is the wording of the resolution passed by the South Dakota Republican party that is calling for the impeachment of Barack Obama. The resolution also states that Obama has “violated his oath of office in numerous ways.” It specifically cites the release of five Taliban combatants in a trade for captive U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl, Obama’s statement that people could keep insurance companies, and recent EPA regulations on power plants. Many states, political organizations and petitions have threatened to impeach Barack Obama, but it never seems to happen.  Ever wondered why? Forget about the far left … Continue reading
