Ben Carson is now trying to walk back his statement about the Terri Schiavo case by, predictably, claiming it was "taken out of context and misinterpreted." Bob Vander Plaats has hope for Donald Trump: "Donald is on a faith journey like we all are. Our goal would be to help him along that journey." Brigitte Gabriel says even the "leftist media" now realizes that President Obama is "a girly man in an empty suit sitting in the White House endangering the country." Robert Oscar Lopez laments that "the modern American university has... MORE >

Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, joined Mark Walters on Armed America Radio this week, where the two concluded that President Obama got emotional during his speech responding to last week’s mass shooting in Oregon not because the president was upset that nine people had died but because he was sad he couldn’t take people’s guns. “When I saw Barack Obama’s speech after Oregon, there was no doubt in my mind that he was in fact shaken up, he was in fact angry and he believed what he said, but not for the reasons that Americans think,...

Larry Pratt, the executive director of Gun Owners of America, took issue with President Obama’s comment last week that the U.S. is “the only advanced country on Earth” that sees such a frequency of mass shootings, including the recent shooting that killed ten people in Oregon. Pratt told Florida talk radio host Joyce Kaufman yesterday that Europe, where some countries have stricter gun laws than the U.S., is actually “the most bloody place in the world” because of the wars that took place there in the 20th century. “What he’s not, and...

At last night’s debate, Sen. Ted Cruz attempted to show his Second Amendment bona fides by touting his recent endorsement from Gun Owners of America, a group that thinks the National Rifle Association is not extreme enough on gun rights. Cruz boasted of his role writing an amicus brief in District of Columbia v. Heller, the case in which the Supreme Court determined that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to bear arms, and his work in the Senate to defeat a bill expanding gun background checks shortly after the Sandy Hook school massacre. He then said that he was... MORE >

Alex Jones invited Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt on to his “Infowars” program yesterday, where the two discussed the persistent right-wing myth that President Obama is telling police departments that conservatives are terrorists or, in Jones’ words, that “gun owners are bad, Christians are bad, the Tea Party’s your enemy, prepare for domestic war, here are armored vehicles for local police.” Jones told Pratt that he’s seen a “huge wake-up in the military and police in the last few years” to the extent that law enforcement...

Gun Owners of America’s Larry Pratt called last week for the arrest of Judge David Bunning, the Bush-nominated federal judge who held Kentucky clerk Kim Davis in contempt after she repeatedly defied court orders to let her office issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Pratt told Sam Bushman of the far-right “Liberty Roundtable” radio program on Wednesday, “This district court judge merely withdrew his horns, they haven’t been cut off. And we’re not finished until we can cut that district judge Bunning’s horns off.” “In fact, he... MORE >

Rep. Louie Gohmert says that he may not run for re-election if the Iran nuclear deal is not defeated. Apparently, he thinks that is some sort of threat. Robert Reilly, author of "Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior Is Changing Everything," will be the keynote speaker at Peter LaBarbera's annual fundraising dinner next month. Larry Pratt and the radical Second Amendment activists over at Gun Owners of America have endorsed Ted Cruz for president. If this quote from Sarah Palin doesn't perfectly sum up today's GOP, I don't know what... MORE >

Larry Pratt, founder of Gun Owners of America, joined Dr. Dave Janda on his far-right radio program “Operation Freedom” last week in a conversation that compared the care provided by Planned Parenthood to medical experiments in Nazi Germany. Janda claimed that “from a medical standpoint, selling fetuses, selling human parts, I mean we might as well take that back to Nazi Germany for God’s sakes.” Planned Parenthood’s engagement in legal tissue donation for medical research prompted Pratt to suggest that “maybe Planned Parenthood could replace their...
