Find My iGun

Maybe a sign of the times is really about smart bullets A recent event in Wisconsin, a Firearm Safety Expo at Oak Creek’s Milwaukee Area Technical College, showcased a number of so-called “smart gun” technologies available today or under development. We’ve all been watching the topic for years now, mostly with a heap of skepticism...

Selling Shoes and Snake Oil

Finding a groove in the age of Millennia is no small feat. Yet, Blake Mykoskie, he of the Tom’s Shoes phenomena, has launched yet another campaign far apart from the discovery that the Argentinian canvas alpargatas shoes could make him a rich man. Mykoskie, who found his celebrity as a former contestant on the reality...

Gun Control? Say It Isn’t So

OK. It isn’t so. But for those still insisting that it is, such as in the U.S. edition of the UK’s Guardian newspaper, an explanation is needed. First, yesterday’s Guardian headline: In a major victory for gun control advocates, the story begins, the legislation aims to close longstanding loopholes in federal law, which requires criminal...

New Background Checks Kickoff

Monday, January 7, 2019 | While much of America watched the NFL playoffs over the weekend, Congressional Democrats are instead planning to launch their gun control ball towards the goal posts tomorrow. Essentially, Team Pelosi will announce universal background checks, possibly the only dink and dunk strategy that may actually make it between the uprights....

Guns and The Big Lie: Taking a Detour Down Victim Lane

January 2, 2019 | Anti-gun forces are all about the BIG LIE. Tell a big enough lie often enough and folks might believe it. I suppose that it is possible to think that a gun-related suicide is a form of “gun violence,” as the antis now argue. But the truth is that classifying it as...

Gun Owners Are the Political Minority

December 19, 2018 | Three Hundred million guns in America was enough to scare the Japanese in 1941 but it doesn’t raise a hair on Chuckie Schumer’s bald spot. The Democrat Senate Minority Leader is, like his House counterpart, Nancy Pelosi, steadfast in their pursuit of more gun control. While that is alarming to some...

The Russian Butina Bungle

December 17, 2018 —“If you plead guilty to a crime your chances are good that you won’t serve any more time in jail.” How good is that? If you’ve already spent six months behind bars for the first time in your life, any reason that might lead to your release is an invitation too hard...

The Kavanaugh Effect Goes Quietly Into the Night

December 15,  2018 — Last month’s elections didn’t go quite the way most gun owners probably hoped that they’d go. While the scenario in the Senate favored Republicans and the sentiment following the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh probably erased any hope that the Democrats could retake the upper chamber of Congress, the...

Schools are Living on Borrowed Time

Bob Rogers – Monday, Dec. 10, 2018 | Sprinkled among today’s amalgam of stories are some that once again reveal how schools are foolishly living on borrowed time. It’s only a matter of days, hours, minutes maybe, before another school shooting happens and school administrators are unable to develop ways and means to stop it....

The First And Second Amendment Crossovers 

December 3, 2018 | Under the guise of trying to sort out mental misfits during the concealed carry permitting process, a couple of elected jokers in New York are tugging at gun owners’ electronic leashes while trampling over both First and Second Amendment rights. What these clowns propose is Constitutionally laughable, especially since they are...

Takeover State Liberals Only Mimic Each Other For Gun Control

CA, AZ, NM, NV ,OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, CO, AK, UT Lacking an original idea in their bodies, once red states like Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Colorado and New Mexico, plus parts of western Montana and southern Utah have difficulty being creative enough to churn up something thoughtful in their pursuit of gun control. Only...

Cops Kill Concealed Carrier in Mall Shooting

Sooner or later we all knew it was going to happen; a man with a concealed carry permit was killed by a cop responding to a shooting in a Hoover, Alabama, shopping mall. An argument between two male shoppers resulted in one man shooting another and injuring a young girl in the melee that sent...

Putting the Gun Control Shoe On The Other Foot

We love a good fight. One of the most amazing things that continues to confound non-Americans around the world is the notion of our country with a Democratic Republic form of government.  That means political power is engendered within a federalist system but with controls influenced by individual state governments. Such a dictum allowed the...

6.8mm: The Next Generation

November 16, 2018 — In October, the US Army made an announcement that not only shook up things in 2018 but will continue to shake things up for years to come. “Right now, the feedback looks like we are going to a 6.8 caliber round,” Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said recently. The...

Save Us From Ourselves?

Thursday, November 1, 2018 — There is the old joke: “I’m from the government and I am here to help you.” There is a new socialist (small “c” communist actually) anti-handgun proposal afoot that is based on the assumption that the government is efficient and equitable. The entire plan is based on the Democrats taking...

It’s Not About the Guns; It’s About Parity

Thursday, November 1, 2018 – It’s easy to blame the gun, specifically, the AR. It’s not about the name ‘assault rifle,’ ‘Armalite rifle,’ automatic rifle, semi-auto rifle, or 30-round magazines. It’s about power – not the guns, the politics. Americans are amazingly tolerable about their party affiliations. Democrats and Republicans take turns leading, one or...
