SALEM, OREGON: Two days after Senate Democrats claimed they would not seek a ban on modern firearms and feeding devices, Democrats in the Oregon House introduced just that.

Seven Senators joined with eight House Reps to introduce a sweeping ban on virtually all modern firearms. Among the Senators is, of course, Ginny Burdick, who claimed on Wednesday “that she is backing off an attempt to push through a bill on gun clips that she drafted following the December shootings at the Clackamas Mall.”   The other sponsors are:

Representatives BAILEY, BUCKLEY, DEMBROW, FREDERICK, READ, REARDON, TOMEI, Senators , DINGFELDER, HASS, MONNES- ANDERSON, MONROE, SHIELDS, STEINER- HAYWARD.

Remember them.

I have the sneaking suspicion that this is an Overton Window ploy on the part of the Democrats in the Oregon legislature. Put forth an outrageous, naked attempt to ban guns and when the people predictably get pissed off – step…

But I sought everywhere in vain for the secret of their success, until I entered the church. It was there, as I listened to the soul-equalizing and soul-elevating principles of the Gospel of Christ, as they fell from Sabbath to Sabbath upon the masses of the people, that I learned why America was great and free, and why France was a slave.

23 executive orders — the full list

None of it would have prevented Sandy Hook, or Fort Hood, or Aurora, or Gabby Giffords… but having the children there makes nice theater when you’re setting the stage to violate the Constitution and infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Never let a crisis go to waste.

The following is a list, provided by the White House, of executive actions President Obama plans to take to address gun violence.

1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.

2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.

3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.

4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.

5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.

6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how…

Timely when you consider the President and Vice President have purposed going so far as to issue an Executive Order to bypass the Constitution and our fundamental rights as citizens of the United States. The ability to defend yourself is essential to liberty.

The following quotes by the authors of the Second Amendment, their contemporaries, various state and federal courts, and others should be useful in the debate over whether that amendment protects a right of individuals or only the military. The Second Amendment states: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

all in favor of gun control“On every question of construction (of the Constitution) let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” (Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, June 12, 1823, The Complete Jefferson, p. 322)

With our freedoms under attack, it is more important than ever that we stand together and support the businesses and people who make America great! Support Hobby Lobby today.

Gov. Mike Huckabee, who got the ball rolling on last August’s wildly successful Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, has a new cause. Tomorrow, Jan. 5, is Hobby Lobby Appreciation Day, and more than 42,000 have signed up to attend via the event’s Facebook page.

As Twitchy reported, Hobby Lobby faces fines of up to $1.3 million per day for refusing to comply with the Obamacare mandate that it provide employees with contraceptive coverage, including morning-after pills. In an open letter, Hobby Lobby CEO David Green noted that more than a thousand companies have been granted Obamacare…

I have been thinking many of these things myself. I have especially been thinking how we want answers on how to avert such tragedies. The answer is right in front of us. God’s Word contains the answers we so desperately need. And yet, people will scoff if you tell them this. As if doing it the way we’ve been doing it has been so successful. As if more legislation will somehow remove the evil that resides in every man’s heart.

FoxNews-CTmassacreinterviewUPDATED: You can watch the video of the Fox News interview by clicking here.

I’m grateful to Fox News Channel anchor Shannon Bream for interviewing me on the air this afternoon to talk about the moral and spiritual dimensions of the Newtown massacre. These are not topics that have been discussed much in the media despite wall-to-wall coverage of the tragedy since Friday. We didn’t have time for a full, in-depth conversation, but we got it started. Here are some of the points I made in the interview, as well as some points I would have made had we had more time:
