    During the March 3 GOP debate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)79%
    criticized gun control as “not effective” against criminals but did not mention his vote for a 1999 gun ban while a city commissioner in West Miami.

    Moreover, Rubio did not explain why he voted for such a ban if gun control is “not effective” against criminals to begin with.

    Fox News host Bret Baier initiated the talk on guns and gun control by asking Rubio, “What limits would you draw around the Second Amendment?”

    Rubio responded by saying he would allow as few limits as possible to be drawn, then said:

    The Second Amendment is not, as I’ve said before, a suggestion. It is the constitutional right of every American to protect themselves and their families. It is the Second Amendment for a reason; it is right after the defense of the freedom of speech for a reason. Clearly the founders of our nation understood and the framers of our constitution understood that you cannot have life and you cannot have liberty and you cannot pursue happiness if you are not safe.

    Quick point–Rubio’s vote for a gun ban in “county and municipal parks” took place during a March 3, 1999 “Regular Commission Meeting.” Breitbart News published the minutes from the meeting and the CCTV video of the meeting as well, both of which show the vote for the gun ban was unanimous between the commissioners. Yet Rubio did not explain how law-abiding citizens, disarmed by a ban on guns for self-defense in “county and municipal parks,” could be guaranteed the safety necessary to enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness while deprived of a gun in such a park.

    On March 1, a 65-year-old concealed carry permit holder shot two suspects after they allegedly beat him and began hitting his wife as well.

    The permit holder, known as “Sal,” was walking down the sidewalk in Queen Village, Philadelphia, with his wife around 8:30 pm when the incident took place.

    According to 6 ABC, two suspects — 20 and 21 years old — approached Sal and his wife and began to attack. Sal’s attorney, Kenneth Young, said, “He explained he has a firearm. They said they don’t care. They punched him in the face. The whole side of his face is blown up. His wife’s being hit. He asked them to leave. He begged them to stop. Then he discharged his firearm.”

    He shot the 20-year-old in the stomach and the 21-year-old in the shoulder.

    University of Texas School of Architecture dean Frederick Steiner is leaving the university because of the new Campus Carry law that allow students with concealed carry licenses to have a gun with them for self-defense.

    The Campus Carry law goes into effect in August. And in weighing how to implement it, UT announced it is exempting dorms from Campus Carry but will allow concealed permit holders to carry guns in classrooms for self-defense. Steiner does not agree with letting concealed carry holders have their guns in classrooms.

    According to KVUE, Steiner said, “If I’m reviewing a project and I need to be open and honest with that project, I know someone is carrying a firearm. I don’t know what my reaction would be.” He suggested allowing concealed carry holders to carry in classrooms and certain other areas of campus “forces him to be responsible for administrating a law he doesn’t believe in.”

    Although Democrat presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)16%
    are pushing for more gun control in the lead-up to this Saturday’s South Carolina primary, a newspaper report indicates gun control is simply not resonating with the state’s Democrat primary voters.

    The AP reported a similar story in New Hampshire, where gun control did not play well in the lead-up to that state’s primaries, either.

    According to Myrtle Beach Online, state Representative Gilda Cobb-Hunter (D-66) believes Clinton and Sanders are “taking their cue from the national conversation,” instead of focusing on what SC Democrat primary voters believe to be important. Hunter suggested issues important to SC Democrats are “kitchen table ones, including jobs and schools.”

    The government of Zimbabwe may soon be forced to shoot 200 lions due to the lull in big-game hunting in light of the anti-hunting backlash that followed the killing of Cecil the Lion in July 2015.

    Cecil was killed with a gun after being shot with a bow and arrow by American Dentist Walter Palmer. Such outrage ensued on the part of animal rights activists and anti-hunting protesters that Palmer had to go into hiding for a time and even hired personal security for himself. During the period of outrage, Sharon Osborne tweeted her hope that Palmer “loses his home, his practice, & his money.”

    Osborne went so far as to suggest Palmer lost his soul by shooting Cecil.

    Now, according to the Mirror, the result of the anti-hunting backlash is a population explosion in Zimbabwe’s Bubye Valley Conservatory. There are currently over 500 lions in the conservatory, exceeding the target population by 200 animals. And the New Zealand Herald reports that the numerous lions are “decimating populations of antelope, along with other animals such as giraffe, cheetah, leopards and wild dogs, after the driest summer on record kept grasses low and made the small game easy targets.”
