Liberals Celebrate Colt’s Ending Production of AR-15 — There’s Only One Problem

Liberals were celebrating thinking they achieved a victory when Colt Firearms Company announced it was ceasing its production of the AR-15. Only one problem.



Uninformed liberals were celebrating all day on Thursday, imagining they achieved a victory when Colt Firearms Company announced it was ceasing production of its AR-15 for the civilian market. Only, there is one little problem for the gun haters: Colt didn’t make its decision because of them.

On Thursday, the virulent anti-gun group, March 4 Our Lives, put out a tweet celebrating the end of Colt’s AR rifle.

“You all. The firearm manufacturer, Colt is ending production of AR-15s due to lack of demand. This is real life. We’re winning,” these liars tweeted.

But little of what this anti-Constitution group tweeted was actually true.

The anti-gunners did not win anything. There is no “lack of demand” for the AR-15, and Colt didn’t actually stop making the rifle.

In fact, even the site that the anti-gun nut group linked to proves their claims to be false.

Colt did say that there is a lack of demand for the AR-15. But only for its version of the rifle. The likely reason for that is because Colt sells its civilian model of the rifle for over $1,000. Meanwhile, everyone else sells their models from between $500 and $900. Colt’s model is just overpriced and in a market where literally dozens of other manufacturers make the same basic firearm, Colt just wasn’t making enough money to justify the expense of production.

As the site the anti-gunners linked to said:

Colt released a statement on Thursday to clarify the decision, which was made because the company simply isn’t selling enough of the rifles in the civilian marketplace to continue devoting the resources into it — a pattern that may be attributed to Colt rifles’ $1,000+ price tag and a market supplied with lower priced competitors.

So, all that really happened was that Colt just simply dropped a low-selling product.

However, Colt will continue making the AR-15 for the law enforcement market. So, it isn’t ending the production of the rifle entirely.

So, the left won no victory here at all. But let’s not let facts get in the way.

Black 2A Supporter Has A Few Choice Words For MSM Who Characterized Gun Rights Rally As ‘Racist’

“Mainstream media be damned.”



An attendee at the Richmond Virginia gun rights rally today dispelled the MSM smears against rally-goers.

He says the media is mischaracterizing them, & that they are just law-abiding citizens who want to advocate for their constitutional rights.

“Every news piece you’ve seen this weekend, they’ve always brought up the issue of race, as thought its nothing but white rednecks and hillbillies out here that care for the Second Amendment,” said the man.

“When actually, black Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Americans, in general, care about the 2nd Amendment,” the man continued. “I work at a gun store part-time and I can’t tell you the number of customers I see of all races, all colors, all creeds, who care about the 2nd Amendment and who just want to peaceably, live their lives, enjoy their rights, and their 2nd Amendment.”

This is outstanding to see fellow Americans stand up for our rights black, white, brown, or yellow it makes no difference we are all patriots at heart.

It was reported the attendance at the rally was about 22,000. Did anyone see the violence that Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and the MSM predicted? Neither did I… So who’s the greatest fear monger: President Trump or Governor Northam?

Texas Gunman Tries to Shoot Up Church, Is Taken Out by Armed Worshipers in Seconds

A dead monster in Texas tried to shoot up a church with a gun but after opening fire, armed churchgoers took him out with return fire.



A dead monster in Texas tried to shoot up a church with a gun but after opening fire, armed churchgoers took him out with return fire. The incident lasted only about six seconds.

The video of the incident is amazing for how quickly the shooter is identified, confronted, and shot down:

Unfortunately, the creep killed two worshipers at the West Freeway Church of Christ in the Fort Worth, Texas, suburb of White Settlement. But the killer was also taken out in seconds preventing him from doing even more damage.

The incident occurred at 10:57 on Sunday morning and was caught live on the church livestream of its weekly service.

Witnesses said that the killer entered the church wearing a fake beard, and sunglasses and began his attack after taking communion.

Three victims were taken to the hospital, one died on the way, and a second died while being treated.

The shooter was also pronounced dead at the scene.

“Our hearts go out to the victims and families of those killed in the evil act of violence that occurred at the West Freeway Church of Christ,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a public statement. “Places of worship are meant to be sacred, and I am grateful for the church members who acted quickly to take down the shooter and help prevent further loss of life. ”

The FBI noted that an investigation is underway:

Thanks to an armed churchman, the attack lasted only six seconds, White Settlement Police Chief J.P. Bevering said.

“The suspect is deceased, and the threat has stopped thanks to the heroic action of those two parishioners at the church,” Bevering told the media.

90% of Virginia Counties in Open Rebellion Against Democrat’s Strict Gun Laws

A whopping 90 percent of county governments in Virginia have now openly declared resistance to the Democrat assault on gun rights.



A whopping 90 percent of county governments in Virginia have now openly declared resistance to the Democrat-controlled state legislature’s upcoming assault on the Second Amendment.

With the start of the new year, the Virginia Democrat Party will be in full control of both houses of the legislature as well as the governor’s mansion and Democrats have made no mistake that their main goal for 2020 will be to enact a long list of extremely strict gun control laws — including bans and confiscation — that will make owning a gun very difficult.

But since the elections last year, county after county began announcing that they intend to refuse to enforce any strict new gun laws that the state legislature might try to enact after the Democrats take control.

And now, fully 90 percent of the Commonwealth’s county governments have said that they will not obey the state legislature.

On Tuesday, the 101st county joined the Second Amendment Sanctuary movement when Stafford County voted itself in.

Virginia has 95 full counties and 15 independent cities, so that means almost every part of the state is now a gun rights sanctuary.

“It’s an organic thing that just took off after Election Day. Elections have consequences, and this is the result. This has truly rocked the conservative, libertarian group’s core. It has really shook a lot of them awake. They are fully awake,” Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins told the Washington Examiner.

The editor of Bearing Arms, Cam Edwards remarked that the effort has served as a national model that has spread to nine states.

Advocate Scott Jenkins added that this movement is not one led by powerbrokers — not even the NRA — but is a movement of the people.

“They are the ones you don’t hear from. They’re not going to speak out at the board meetings or polling places and write editorials. They’re the everyday man who is focused on raising a family, going to work, and trying to live a good life and be a good citizen, and they see this as people who have no knowledge of what they’re family means when it comes to protection or the bearing of arms, nor can they relate to their culture of hunting or sport shooting or anything about them, and yet they want to come from their urban areas … and they drive to Richmond, where they want to implement these laws where the vast amount of Virginia is going to be affected by it even though they have not done anything wrong,” Jenkins said.

This movement is unprecedented, for sure.

Virginia Democrats Want Law to Use Credit Card Records for Stealth Registration of Guns

Virginia Democrats want to force banks and credit card companies to turn over data on gun purchases so that Democrats can track gun owners.



In yet another unconstitutional attack on the Second Amendment, Virginia Democrats want to force banks and credit card companies to turn over data on gun and ammunition purchases so that Democrats can illegally track gun owners.

Rep. Jennifer Wexton, D-10th, has filed a bill that she claims is only necessary to stop mass shooting, but would instead serve as a way to track all gun owners.

Wexton’s bill would require the state Treasury Department to use credit card data to track sales of things she claims will give clues to money laundering, fentanyl trafficking and human smuggling.

She also claims that the data could be used to predict future gun violence.

Critics, though, lambasted the plan saying that the state has no such expertise to use that kind of data to predict anything. There is no infrastructure, processes, or personnel to analyze the data.

Wexton disagreed.

According to the Richmond Dispatch:

“Banks, credit card companies and retailers have unique insight into the behavior and purchasing patterns that can help identify and prevent mass shootings,” said Wexton, whose plan has the backing of Everytown for Gun Safety, a national gun-control organization. “The red flags are there — someone just needs to be paying attention.”

The result of this folderol, of course, would only be to track legal gun owners who innocently use credit cards to buy their firearms and supplies.

After all, if such a law were to be enacted, criminals would simply stop using credit cards.

What the state would end up with would be an unconstitutional gun registry on the sly where gun owners would be identified, tracked, and harassed by the government or engaging in their Constitutional rights to bear arms.

Such a registry would also lead to gun confiscation. And this is the true goal of Wexton’s bill.
