Only In America

Weekend, August 29-30, 2015 — The world is awash in guns, guns of all kinds, all calibers and gauges, long guns, short guns and guns our fathers left us. Some are new but most have become collectors’ items not always because they’re old or rare but because they gained fame for something, like the Tommygun or Dirty Harry’s S&W “most powerful handgun in the world,” the .44 magnum.

Many guns begin their lives in the military and eventually make their way into the civilian mainstream. Some were discovered on the target ranges or in a backyard. But all of them captivate the imaginations of shooters who just want to pull a trigger, hear the report and watch the target take the hit.

America is unique in the world because of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and envied by nearly every other country because of the independence earned by those who used the gun to support freedom, provide food for families and protection against those who would do us harm.

Thus, this weekend we celebrate the labors of those gunsmiths with enough vision to see us not only through the past centuries but well into the future as typified by this week’s…

Off on a Patriotic Tangent

RICK SAPP, August 27, 2015 — Love of or devotion to one’s country. It’s called “patriotism.”

Like many readers, I served in the military. I vote. I work and raise my kids. I am a patriotic American, a citizen of the United States of America … and I have a question.

I’m concerned about the intersection of patriotism and commerce. My curiosity began by tracing ownership of a local “green initiative.” Our town built a boutique 100 MW power plant; it burns wood to create electricity. Our utility bills subsequently went up 10 percent. “The people” own the plant in the same way we own the White House or Mount Rushmore. Actually money-men in Boston and Tokyo own (and profit from) our power plant.
Is it patriotic to pay my inflated utility bill or should I, following Thoreau’s example, protest and go to jail? Which brings me to the question. Is it patriotic for an American to purchase Russian guns or Chinese optics?  [full story]

You're Entitled to My Own Opinion

BOB ROGERS, September 1, 2015 — God knows, I don’t like seeing innocent people murdered. People, it occurs to me, are like sand on a beach: the bigger the beach, the more people are attracted to it. And, like guns, everybody wants one. Or two. Or three. And when the number of guns begin to outnumber people, somebody’s going to get killed. But that’s just my opinion.

It’s unfortunate that some people who kill other people with a gun get their name in the news. TV makes them famous, and newspapers, magazines and pundits, mostly political pundits, get to broadcast their opinions on guns and gain fame for doing it. And when the news of a shooting hits cyberspace, political do-gooders rush to beat each other to the nearest camera or microphone — even if it's a lousy smartphone camera. So I’ve got a solution to this vexing problem: Cancel free speech.

Oh, sure, I know you think I’m daydreaming. I’m talking about the First Amendment here. Well, maybe. But maybe not so much.  [full story]
