The Perils of the ‘like’ Button

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 — A 7th-grade student at Edgewood Middle School in Trenton, Ohio, has been suspended for ten days due to “potential school violence.” Now, in this day and age, you might think that it’s important for school officials to remain on top of things and do whatever they can to protect their...

THE KING’S FOREST: The Public is increasingly being excluded from public lands

May 15, 2017 — In the run up to Earth Day late last month (a big event in California), I watched a video on how much trash is left behind by ignorant people playing in the snow on Southern California’s national forests. I read a story on Outside OnLine about how Instagram photos and geotagging...

The Possibility of a Stacked Deck

May 1, 2017 — Out of political ammo for the foreseeable future, Congressional Democrats can oppose Trump’s future Supreme Court nominees all they want. Not until they retake the White House and both chambers of Congress will they have a chance to switch the ideological gun control path they’ve been walking for the past decade....

What about the NRA?

May 1, 2017 — Leading up to and following the annual meetings of the National Rifle Association of America that concluded at the end of this past month, there has been no dearth of buzz about that multi-million-member organization. It boggles the mind how detractors show their ignorance by saying some of the things they...

California DFW: Driving Down The Road To Squishy Science

April 17, 2017 — I was reminded this week of the terrifying expression that says, “As California goes, so goes the rest of the country.” I live in the Golden State and I fear for the rest of the country, and pray the expression is out-of-date. Hillary Clinton won here with over 60 percent of...

Kids and Guns: Learning To Drive – And Shoot – Safely

April 14, 2017 — A recent post making the rounds on Facebook asks, “Should parents be allowed to teach their children about guns?” If you’re reading this, I think it’s safe to say that you would probably answer the question with a hearty affirmative. But what troubles me about the question is the fact that...

Lead Poisoning

April 8, 2017 — On March 2nd, his first day in office as the new Interior Secretary in the Trump Administration, Ryan Zinke issued two secretarial orders. The first was to overturn Barack Obama’s lead ban on ammunition and fishing tackle. The second was to improve game management and habitat. While both orders had support...

NUKE ‘EM!

April 4, 2017 — Actions have consequences, and there’s no clearer action than the ones taken by at least four of the ten Democrat senators who were considered potential swing votes to join Republicans for the Friday April 7 confirmation for Judge Neil Gorsuch’s elevation to the Supreme Court. The four liberal senators that announced...

The Ten Pro-Gorsuch Pro-Gun Democrats

April 1, 2017 — It’s a good bet that we all know some fellow gun owners who cast a scant eye on things that conservative Republicans hold dear. Things like smaller government, less regulation, fiscal responsibility, religious liberty, anti-abortion…the list is too long…and consistently pro-gun. Those are Democrats who own guns, use guns, like guns,...

Respect Is More Than Just A Word

April 1, 2017 — What is a major difference between the gun culture and anti-gun forces? Respect. Respect is a keystone in the gun culture. Lack of respect characterizes enemies of freedom who would deny their fellow citizens the rights that are guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. It is more than simply a lack of...

Still Not Crazy…Just Mentally Insufficient

March 15, 2017 — Recently, President Trump undid a federal regulation that required the Social Security Administration to forward the names of those who needed assistance planning their finances to the National Instant Criminal Background System. This meant that someone who was incapable of effectively planning their finances without professional help was forbidden from purchasing...

Women and the Ethic of the Gun

March 1, 2017 — There is a phenomenon I call “ethic of the gun.” It is omnipresent, yet difficult to nail down when discussing firearms, their owners and their shooters generally. As much as it is challenging to try to explain it to non-gun folks, it seems as though ethnic gun folks understand it without...

“Guns, Not Politics” a Good Idea But the Two Are Not Mutually Exclusive

March 1, 2017 — During the past two years we often heard many complaints about the politics of guns: “Why are Trump and Hillary always talking about the Second Amendment?” was a constant refrain during the nearly two years of the campaign. An interesting question, no doubt. But it wasn’t the only question on the...

Trying to Make Everyone Gun Crazy

February 15, 2017 — President Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress have not been wasting any time trying to un-do some of the damage done during the Obama administration. Using the Congressional Review Act, which allows for a fast-track repeal of regulations by a simple majority, agency rules can be voided and the agency is barred...

Stretching the Range for Long Range Shooting

February 1, 2017 — Technology and the manufacturing advances it affords are changing the face of Gundom. It is now routine to be able to produce extremely accurate rifles that shoot extremely effective bullets. That’s great. As this evolutionary process goes forward, we are faced with reevaluating a few things. Specifically long-range hunting. There is...

We Can’t Say We Weren’t Warned

February 1, 2017 — San Bernardino may come back to haunt us. The result was not just 14 innocents killed and two jihadists eliminated. The aftermath became a tornado of new gun restrictions that wouldn’t have stopped the terrorists anyway, and would only make life more difficult for honest, responsible California gun owners. What the...

Magpul Gets the Last Laugh

January 12, 2017 — The United States Marine Corps has done an about-face on the use of Magpul polymer magazines. Once officially banned, the mags have not only been given the green light for training and deployment use, they are now going to be the standard magazines used by the Corps. A Magpul press release...

Some Thoughts on Terrorism

January 3, 2017 — Terrorism. It came to my backyard a little over a year ago as the Christmas season was in full swing and it has been weighing on me for the past year, but especially this Chrismas. I live in San Bernardino. Everyone in the country knows the name of my city now...
