Sen. Warren Commits to Pushing More Gun Bans

From coast-to-coast, gun haters are doubling down in an effort to ban — and even confiscate — firearms.

In Oregon, the Democrat Governor signed a gun confiscation bill into law in July.

As explained to me by Kevin Starrett of the Oregon Firearms Federation, “SB 719 calls for the forced confiscation of property by the police without any due process or accusation — let alone any conviction of a crime. Plus, it allows people with no mental health credentials to make assessments of a gun owner’s state of mind, while allowing people with no mental health credentials (judges) to punish people they have never met or spoken to.

“Not only that, the law actually allows a judge to order a confiscation of firearms based on nothing more than the fact that the person lawfully purchased a firearm in the last 6 months.”

Warning Shots: Fire Them At Your Own Peril

By Harold F. Callahan

“Sarge”, the Constable began, “you wont believe this haas (civilian) I was talking to.” I remember looking up, hoping upon hope this might be slightly more interesting than checking the charge office registers at 3am. “What?” I offered a bit more excited than I felt. This response seemed to offer the young man more enthusiasm for his story than I intended.

Give Me Liberty

H/T Keep And Bear. 

I was surprised to see where my home state of Indiana stood fire power wise.

The folks at are always creating cool graphics, interactive maps, and other neat features over on their website.

They recently developed an interactive map that we think our readers here at Keep and Bear will absolutely love. The map compares the number of privately owned guns in each American state with a foreign nation that has a similar number of firearms.

Interestingly, 3 of the top 5 gun owning states, actually have draconian anti-gun laws. They just also have very large populations.

  • California’s total of 33.08 million guns is closest to China’s 40 million
  • Texas’ total of 22.33 million guns is closest to Germany’s 25 million
  • New York’s total of 17.2 million guns is closest to Pakistan’s 18 million
  • Florida’s total of 16.7 million guns is closest…
