The ban was passed under Hugo Chavez and then bolstered with $47 million for enforcement under Nicolas Maduro. The penalty for “illicit carrying or selling a…

On December 11, 2018, Breitbart News reported on our correspondence with the New Jersey State Police (NJSP), learning that they would not rule out going house-to-house, or door-to-door, to enforce the new “high-capacity” magazine ban. New Jersey’s new ban, which took effect during the midnight hour of Tuesday, December 11, makes it a felony to possess a magazine holding more than ten rounds. We asked the NJSP if they would be enforcing this ban on a traffic stop-basis — checking magazines in firearms when they pulled over drivers for speeding, reckless driving, etc. —…

Study: Universal Background Checks in California Did Not Reduce Homicides

A UC Davis study examining the first ten years after California adopted universal background checks shows that those checks did not reduce homicides. In other words, the very checks that the Democrat Party pushes on the national level — the checks that Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) describes as the gun control “north star” — already exist in California, and they did nothing to reduce homicides during the time frame studied. Townhall reported that the study was conducted by UC Davis’s Violence Prevention Research Program (VPRP) and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg…
