We Know That You Know What’s Coming From Trump Central

If you’re forced to give, just remember that at some point you’ll get it back Politics which often sounds compromising rarely are. President Trump hates compromise. He prefers deals; those that go his way. Universal background checks are not what he prefers because he knows that his debt to the NRA comes with a price: no...

No One Means Everyone

One can’t afford the leftie label by splitting partisan hairs The good old days of “no one is trying to take your guns.” That’s what gun owners are always told right after someone talked about wanting to take away everyone’s guns and the gun owner called them out on it. “Oh, just calm down,” the...

The Ox That Roared Gored O’Rourke

We’re told it’s something about a pig and lipstick “Hell, yes!” That was the answer Robert “Beto” O’Rourke gave to ABC News’ David Muir last night when the TV toaster opened up the Democratic presidential debate questioning about guns by calling on O’Rourke to confirm the congressman’s pledge to openly allow the federal government to...

Being Part of a Laughing Stock is Not Funny

It took Walmart to set the pace for the great gun cover-up Throw open any barn door and the horses will all get out. That old adage appears to be the sudden mantra of America’s retailers who, following Walmart’s lead, have politely asked gun owners to conceal their guns rather than to show them off...

Now You See It, Until You Don’t

Does “the house just went up in a cloud of smoke” have any relevance for you? In the “monkey see, monkey do” narrative, onlookers instantly become quizzical. Twice, recently, I was standing in a Walmart check-out line. The young man ahead of me was openly carrying his pistol. “How’s it feel to be living in a...

Contractions

If what you see is what you get, you’re in danger of being blind-sided If there’s anything less perennially conflagrating than the Huffington Post (HuffPost) it’s The Daily Beast (TheDB). Both are addicted to seeing confiscation of guns in America. And both know that if, when, or how that ever happens they will have been supportive...

Try Trumping the New Trump Card

When players forget the dealer, the dealer always wins Even casual observers of the gun control debate must have their eyes spinning and ears ringing recently as they try to sort out what is what. That is because there are two separate stages in this theatre of the absurd. On one stage, gun grabbers and...

Gun-Free Mormons

Leaving one’s fate to God has been the mantra of religious theologies nearly the world over. But is that the safe way to profess one’s dedication to Jesus Christ in today’s uncertain world beset by political uprisings, violent protests, desperate populations – think Hong Kong, Venezuela of the moment – and the growing scourge of...

Guns Are for Hunting Not for War

Matching wits and guns with our military has guaranteed our freedom.  Never, ever forget that. Adm. Mike Mullen, the former chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called for a ban on assault weapons: These “weapons are for war; they are not for sport. Assault weapons are designed to kill as many people as possible in...

We Want to Thank the Senate Democrats

Sometimes blows to the cerebral cortex just aren’t enough to show our appreciation. The United States Supreme Court is not well. That’s the diagnosis of Democrat Senators Sheldon Whitehouse, Mazie Hirono, Richard Blumenthal, Richard Durbin and Kirsten Gillibrand who took to the airwaves and their media pals to tell the SCOTUS to take an aspirin...

Red Flag on the Play

When politicians say “due process,” the ring sounds hollow As what appears to be a media-driven series of mass shootings takes lives and dominates social media, the calls for increased gun control once again grow stronger, fueled by crime and tragedy. As always, longtime gun control activists and the politicians who listen to them cry...

About My Phone

If Gun Control was about Dialing for Dollars we’d all go broke I’m one of those high-tech resisters. My phone has no sense of direction. It’s dumb. No doubt some people think of me that way, as well. But my phone rings all day, and maybe 90% of those rings come from somebody wanting to sell...

Yes, This is an Endorsement

We suppose that in the order of things honest and rational we shouldn’t endorse anything: product, brand name, personalities, even journalists. But the last – journalists – spark our enthusiasm by way of our subscription to the Wall Street Journal. Each morning my mailbox jolts with anticipation over the way WSJ sees the world; my...

The Gored Ox and the Magic of 10

Let’s discuss banning some social media and watch Big Tech squirm The inevitability of talk about banning guns – any gun – sparks a flame most Americans cannot possibly understand unless it’s their ox that is getting gored. It may not be impossible to restrict certain guns such as the WASR 10 used in the...

Fishing for Red Flags

Gun owners for years have watched gun control advocates take a mile instead of the inch they were offered in compromise. Though they won’t talk about it, the anti-gun supporters continue to push for the “little things” they know have a better chance of fishing for passage into law while awaiting new opportunities for bigger...

Hard Targets

Too much talk and too little action provide the motive for mass shootings Sunday’s TV talkers were unanimous in their rhetoric about the weekend’s mass shootings. Hosts had to address the killings in El Paso and Dayton and guests found considerable difficulty in trying to articulate reasonable responses. To no one’s surprise they both failed...

Throwing the Book of Gun Control at Crime Has Failed Once Again

Despite Every Effort To Rid America of Them, Guns Remain the Inconvenient Truth People in the U.S. have had the means to conduct mass shootings for more than 100 years now. Yet there are comparatively few times during that century-plus when such criminal anti-social behavior has been carried out significantly. Why is that? Personal freedoms...

A Ban on ‘Assault Weapons’ Will Cost You

Everything comes with a price on its head. That includes so-called ‘assault weapons.” In yesterday’s commentary on this page, the tactic of anti-gun groups using the initiative process as the anchor for more gun control should have awakened apathetic non-gun owners to the dangers of gathering signatures on a petition with which to show “proof” to...
