McCain: Best Thing for Me to Do about Trump Is not Pay Attention

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) appeared Friday on “The Dan Patrick Show” on NBC Sports and host Dan Patrick asked him if he would “want a piece” of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump in his prime. McCain, who was backed by Trump in 2008 when he ran for president, made it known that he was backing Lindsey Graham over Trump for the GOP primary shortly after Trump said McCain was not a “war hero.” The former presidential candidate said that the best thing for him to when it comes to Trump, is “not pay attention.” “I think the best thing for me to do seriously about Mr. Trump is not pay attention. I’ve got a lot of work to do in the Senate and Armed Services Committee. I don’t think its beneficial to me,” responded McCain. “So, I’m trying to do my work and not get involved anymore with Mr. Trump.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

CNN’s Houck: Gun-Free Zones ‘Lead Lambs to the Slaughter’

Monday on  “CNN Newsroom,” law enforcement analyst Harry Houck said that he has a “big problem” with “gun-free zones” like the Oregon college location of last week’s tragic shooting. Houck said, “One big problem I have here is that this is a gun-free zone, all right, and the fact that, that maybe if security officers were there that were armed, they could have been able to engage this guy with their weapons, and maybe we could have prevented some of this carnage. But what we’ve learned and a lot of people have known throughout the years, is that gun-free zones, all they do is lead lambs to the slaughter. And that’s what happened here.” He continued, “If I was a parent, and my kid went to that school, I’d be talking to that administration and say, ‘What is the problem here? Is this just your hatred for guns, is why there’s no guns here at this school? Or is it something else?’ And I want to know why, and I want the school’s responsibility.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Rush Limbaugh: Concealed Carry Is Peace Through Strength on Individual Level

On October 5 Rush Limbaugh described concealed carry as a “deterrent” and an example of peace through strength on the individual level. He segued into these comments by pointing to the ease with which Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump talks about having a concealed carry permit from New York. Limbaugh said: A concealed carry permit, if you think one’s necessary — and by the way, they’re not easy to get. I know a lot of people in New York who have them, and it’s quite an involved process. But once you have one, one of the values in it is having people know that you do because that, in itself, is its own deterrent. What does that say, by the way? The fact that you have a concealed carry permit and you don’t mind if people know? That’s the deterrent. Limbaugh then explained the deterring factor of having a permit to carry a gun on one’s person–and especially the deterrent of bad guys knowing you might be carrying one–by juxtaposing it with having superior military strength to ensure peace. He focused on debates surrounding the military’s purchase of a fleet of B-2 bombers–the last time such a purchase was made–and

Time’s Erica Williams Simon Overstates Slut Walk Attendance by a Mere 5,000%

This goes some way to explaining the gap between male and female representation in STEM subjects: a feminist TIME journalist has claimed that “15,000” people attended a Slut Walk for which, by most estimations, barely 300 showed up. In an op-ed for the magazine’s website that has since been altered to read “thousands,” which is still inaccurate, journalist Erica Williams Simon heavily implied she was present at the event, writing, “The solidarity was palpable and the energy electric.” Simon later admitted on Twitter that her piece “was not a recap of the march,” although she evaded directly confirming whether she had been there or not.  Tell me, @createdbyerica. How do you know the “solidarity was palpable” when you obviously weren’t there? — Milo Yiannopoulos (@Nero) October 5, 2015 So you admit you weren’t there, but you wrote about the “palpable” atmosphere anyway. Wow. — Milo Yiannopoulos (@Nero) October 5, 2015 Simon did not explain when asked why Amber Rose Slut Walk organisers told Breitbart that the Slut Walk had 6,000 registrants but told TIME that number was 15,000. Merely a few hundred showed up for the march, from which this correspondent was ejected. TIME journalist now claiming Amber Rose said 15K registrants. They
