Carson and Trump break taboos on guns


Previously, a candidate for president was considered pro-second amendment if he opposed onerous restrictions on gun ownership. It also helped if he liked to go hunting with guns. That was really all that was required.

But Ben Carson and Donald Trump have now upped the stakes on defending the second amendment.

First it was Carson, suggesting that fewer Jews would have died in Nazi Germany if their guns hadn't been confiscated by Hitler.

The Anti-Defamation League, whose religion is liberalism and government control, not Judaism, was quick to condemn him.

The Anti-Defamation League condemned the comments, saying in a statement: “Ben Carson has a right to his views on gun control, but the notion that Hitler’s gun-control policy contributed to the Holocaust is historically inaccurate. The small number of personal firearms available to Germany’s Jews in 1938 could in no way have stopped the totalitarian power of the Nazi German state.”

This is pure lunacy. What the ADL is saying is that since ownership of firearms could not have totally stopped the Nazi regime from committing genocide, it wasn't worth being armed. The reality is common sense; if some Jews had been armed, some could have fought back, and some would have escaped and survived. Was the prospect of several hundred or several thousand additional Jews surviving really small potatoes to the Anti-Defamation League? They are so in love with government control (and certain members of Hizbullah) that they should call themselves the Anti-Diaspora League.

When confronted with criticism, Ben Carson fought back. When asked if he was comparing our government to Nazi Germany, he still didn't back down. He made the common sense point that the second amendent is there to protect us not against our current government per se but a future government which may be tyrannical. And given how lawless and unconstitutional our current government has acted, and how Obama is talking about acting unilaterally and unconstitutionally again to curtail gun rights, it's never a bad time to talk in the abstract about the benefits of gun ownership to protect us from a possible future tyrannical government.

I have never seen any other Republican go that far. Ben Carson broke new ground and he didn't hide and "adjust" what he said.

And then it was Donald Trump's turn, when he said he "felt much better" carrying a gun.

Donald Trump has a concealed weapon permit and says he "sometimes" carries a firearm.

"I will tell you, I feel much better being armed," the billionaire businessman said Sunday in an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation."

Have you ever heard any candidate say that he feels safer carrying a weapon for personal protection? I feel this is a first as well. By saying this, Trump is personally showing his support for people who want guns to protect themselves. It's a lot more than just saying in the abstract "I support the right to guns for self-defense"; he is saying he personally feels that way too.

Now, having said that, I have no idea whether Trump actually has a gun or ever carries it around. But by making it personal, he makes it seems that he stands firmly behind those who believe in gun ownership for self defense, in a way that makes other politicians who merely abstractly support the concept seem less committed.

It's refreshing. And perhaps it partially explains why Trump and Carson are leading in the polls.

CBS Poll: Top three GOP Candidates are pretty good!


A new CBS poll has some expected results and some surprises. Donald Trump is still in first with 27% support, roughly where he was before. Ben Carson is still in second with 21%, continuing to inch up in the polls. But the most surprising is third place. After the last debate, Carly Fiorina had been surging. Now she is sputtering, with only 6% support tied with low-polling energy Jeb Bush. The third place candidate is now Ted Cruz, at 9%.

Did McCarthy pull out because he was in bed with Obama, or Renee Ellmers?


Kevin McCarthy has pulled out of the race to be Speaker of the House. Ostensibly, it was because of conservative opposition. Conservatives, knowing they didn't have the votes to stop McCarthy in the Republican conference vote, did have the votes to stop him in the vote of the House, where Democrats will put up their own candidate too, and McCarthy knew that. (This was a strategy I strongly recommended.) Additionally, many Republicans were unhappy with McCarthy's dumb statement which implied that the committee investigating the deaths in Benghazi was in place to harm Hillary Clinton. It made people think that Mark Levin was right to say McCarthy is just like Eric Cantor, only "10 IQ points dumber".

Now that Kevin McCarthy has decided that the Speakership is not an affair he wishes to involve himself with, the question becomes, who is next? Paul Ryan's name is being floated around. You may remember him as Mitt Romney's VP candidate who got his clock cleaned by Joe Biden. Biden was a maniac, but was still seen as delivering a better performance than Ryan's dry, technocratic style answers.
