Buyback Blowback

Being careful what you wish for is showing signs of wishing for something else. One of the big stories in mid-2019 as far as gun owners are concerned is the Christchruch mosque shootings and their aftermath in New Zealand. The attacks occurred in March at two separate mosques during Friday Prayer and killed 51. An...

Why a Conservative Supreme Court Strikes Fear in the Hearts of Gun Controllers

Hell Day for the anti-gun crowd may just be around the corner The United States Supreme Court has New York City running for the exits. It’s not because gun crime is on the upswing in the Big Apple. It is. It’s due to the fear that the SCOTUS might totally nullify the city’s inane prohibition...

Imagining Dictators

The following four days should be given over not just to celebrations but to our political future. You don’t have to know one to know one. The politics of the United States has changed, some for the better, some for the worse. In a time when Republicans and Democrats were just that, and conversed about...

Ammunition Background Checks are Now a Reality in California

It should come as no surprise to anyone the state that has the highest gasoline tax in the nation, downtowns of all major cities that look more like third-world countries – and welcomes illegal immigrants,  giving them sanctuary status and free healthcare – has required its legal gun owners to register ammunition and undergo a...

Background Checks in the Foreground

What you see is not always what you get I watched a TV news item with amusement recently as the visuals showed what looked like a miles-long string of cars and trucks literally stuck in the mud along an unpaved backroad that their smart phone GPS apps told them to take to avoid a traffic...

Background Checks: You Can Lie Until You Die and Nothing Will Happen To You

It’s nearly inconceivable that the process of buying a gun legally and lying on the 4473 form will get you tossed in prison or even the local pokey. Blame it on the governmental habit of making more paperwork out of everything including laws passed by Congress. After the Brady Bill was made into law in...

Subtleties Are No Longer the Currency of Anti-gun Democrats

Not unlike a talent awards ceremony, Democrats will decide who’s more for gun control than their counterparts Not to bemoan the subject of this week’s launch of the Democrat national primary election presidential debates, it’s a good time to mold into the political brain-trust that a record 23 campaign addicts will take the stage a...

Scariest Thing Ever

FDR Said It:  “The Only Thing We Have To Fear Is…Fear, Itself” There are plenty of things to demonize when it comes to the gun control discussion. The perennial favorite, of course, is the so-called “assault weapon.” These terrifying death machines, despite being used in only a small fraction of crimes involving guns, are the...

Reminiscing About The Good ‘ol Days

The devil’s in the details but you’re still resisting. Good for you. Today’s Gun Headlines, above, has a certain disqualifying threat to America’s gun culture. As might be interpreted by outsiders beyond the reach of these pages – in other words, non-gun owners and those who think the Second Amendment is nothing more than legislative...

Anti-Gun Group Has Found a Way to Politicize Non-Gun Owners

Controlling the guns is easy when you can control the voters Gun controllers have savored the gift of victory during last November’s elections, first, by getting their issues on ballots – Washington state’s I-1639  among the most recent – and following up with issues such as legislated universal background checks, extended magazine bans, bump stocks…you...

Fight Night: WaPo vs LaPierre

They Thought They Had A Scoop. Nope. Just another NRA Screed. Among other alarming news stories to be buried in the Sunday edition of the Washington Post was the “lavish spending” by top officials of the NRA who paid consultants, lawyers, a firing range instructor, an outdoor writer (Heavens! They paid somebody to write for...

What You Don’t Have You Don’t Miss…and You Don’t Care

When small minds think alike that’s when gun control wins Seventy-five years ago today soldiers from the UK, the US and Canada, among other countries, battled government tyranny orchestrated by Adolf Hitler. America leads the world in the readiness of self-defense as foreseen by the Founders of this country. That readiness is preserved in the...

Sardines and Suckers

Those who say freedom isn’t free are promoters of gun control The tighter people are packed together, the fewer real freedoms individuals have. That’s a fact of life. It shouldn’t be that way, but it is regardless what laws are in place. If one person’s freedom ends where another person’s freedom begins, then there can’t...

Blame the Gun or Blame the Shooter?

In the aftermath of Virginia Beach, media debates trying to decide The country is waiting for answers. We already know which of the two choices the gun controllers will select. The gun, of course.  Because, if it had not been available – even if legally purchased with a background check passed (it was) – its...

Maybe Chicago Can’t Count the Dead or Just Doesn’t Want To

As the ink dries, the Illinois soap opera continues anyway. When Chicago’s city fathers learned through news reports that some 30,000 state gun owners had let their FOID permits lapse, their first reaction was to pass yet another restriction, fingerprinting, in an effort to identify who can or cannot legally own a gun in Illinois....

California Is One Step away From a Backdoor Big Game Hunting Ban

Getting the lead out will have sinister consequences for wildlife Starting July 1, the 260,000-plus hunters in California will be required to use non-lead ammunition for all hunting in the Golden State — from big game to upland birds to varmints. Under legislation passed in 2013 by the California legislature (AB 711), lead ammunition for...

The Reality of Resistance in New Zealand

Giving up your guns may be the cheapest way out of freedom Following hours, not days, after the Christchurch mosque mass shooting, the American gun control media rushed to be the first to admonish America for not being more like Kiwiland in enacting immediate gun control. Led by the Washington Post and followed by the...

An Exercise in Self-Indulgence

Media’s Passion Isn’t Reporting. It’s Making Itself Look Bad We’ve all become accustomed to the non-stop news coverage that gun crime generates, particularly if it’s at a school. Endless emotional sensationalism interspersed with tidbits about all the blood on the hands of the National Rifle Association is the norm these days. This deluge by the...
