Why We Exist

Last week a gun-owning relative emailed us to complain about being unable to buy a Sig 226 at a local gun store in Palm Springs, California.

When Toilet Paper Returns, it’s All Bottoms Up

Worried about the coronavirus? Of course you are. Concerned about defending your bug-out stash from zombie neighbors? That, too. When will this stinking pandemic be over? Answer: when the toilet paper shelves at your favorite store are fully restocked and selling at its usual only-in-need pace. Unless you’re banned from going outside for a brisk...

Singling Out Gun Stores is not the Solution to America’s Political Virus Just hearing someone say ‘we’re all in this together’ isn’t enough Defenders of California’s latest folly at gun control are targeting gun retailers by forcing them to close their doors amid the onrush of some of its citizens’ efforts to buy self-protection in...

No Sell or No Sale?

The urge to take advantage of a good thing might only shoot blanks, after all What might seem like a bogus effort to achieve some cheap widespread national publicity could do a disservice to other firearms retailers. Elsewhere on these pages is a story of a Las Vegas gun store that claims to have sold...

Commentary

Counting the Ticks on the Anti-gun Clock Suddenly, ‘Please don’t sneeze on me” has real meaning In what must seem terribly disheartening to America’s gun controllers, the only half-way convinced part of the country’s population that have been victimized by the eighty-seven percenters (“87% of Americans want more gun restrictions”) have been flocking to the...

The Latest End Times

The only thing you can’t buy at Walmart is a virus. It’s free. It seems a little bit like a bad movie, but here we are once again at the End of the World as We Know It. Unlike previous doomsdays, the Wuhan Flu pandemic is at least a legitimate crisis, though it will take...

God and guns: Blurring kingdoms in the firearms debate

An October breeze surrounded the crowd of tourists around Virginia Beach’s Dairy Queen. Suddenly a loud pop rang out, narrowing the unconcerned eyes. The bang eerily resembled a gunshot. Youths, employing a time-honored prank, filled a paper bag with air, then popped it. Though the source was harmless, the reverberation complicates efforts at defending the...

Jack-booted Thugs

Vilified in the past, troops ordered to remove guns from civilians have crossed the Delaware again but, this time, tempted to join a counter revolution Once upon a time there were those who opposed private ownership of firearms simply because they did not like guns. That was long before the gun-grabbing movement became part of...

Guns and the Impossibility of Impossible

Betting on Beto is Biden’s way of how to hold a shotgun to the heads of gun owners When failed presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke let his anti-gun passions run away with his campaign, gun owners rejoiced. His remark, “Hell, yes, We’re going to take your ARs and your AKs…” forever politically mark the former El...

Is the Sanctuary Virus Spreading?

Like a Chinese epidemic, America’s sanctuary virus is reaching coast to coast.  Planning a trip somewhere?  Don’t forget your facemasks. Just this morning there was this viral warning: South Carolina: Anderson County considering becoming 2nd Amendment Sanctuary; Oklahoma: Stephens County now officially a “2nd Amendment Sanctuary County” for gun owners; North Carolina: County resolution embraces Second...

Risky in the Extreme

Conclusion jumping may be the newest political sport of fouling out It’s the bad penny that keeps turning up.  “Red Flag” laws , in some states better known as ERPOs (Extreme Risk Protection Orders) , have been spreading. One of the latest took effect in Colorado, and things are going swimmingly so far. The mother...

Dream On

Meet the Kid That Has Become Bernie Sanders’ Gun Advisor Give your kid some attention, your approval and applause on the basketball court, football gridiron or baseball diamond and he or she will do just fine. At a young age and with little to no experience beyond their growing up walls, adulation in any form...

Is there a ghost in your house?

For you, it could mean Halloween or Christmas.  Jail is also an option. Cody Wilson launched Defense Distributed in 2012 when he successfully printed the first 3D gun, a “plastic” pistol that he successfully fired. As time wore on and Wilson became bogged down in legal issues unrelated to his firearms blueprints which he was...

The Wildlife Lefties and Killing the Golden Goose

Without recreational hunting efforts to save wildlife will only endanger wildlife The Grimmest of fairy tales, promoted by wildlife protectionist groups, may find comfort in the downturn of sport hunting in America.

Our Freedom is Under Attack

If guns go, every American becomes endangered What freedom lovers do now will determine the future for all. The spotlight throughout Gundom in recent times has been on Virginia where the gun grabbers have made it clear that they want to confiscate arms from the citizenry, among other things. But the Old Dominion is by...

A Dependence on Killing

The gun controllers have been very quiet since Richmond. We’d guess it’s because things didn’t turn out as they expected. The theory is simple, really. Gun control groups depend on mass shootings to refresh their appetite for getting rid of guns. While their tempo for politically motivated solutions is never fully satisfied, they are content...

Political Correctness Meets The Streets

Freedom happens when the gun becomes the target of everyone’s affections It is generally accepted that the country is “divided,” usually when talking politics. That’s because it is very easy to count votes and when both sides are pretty much the same number, division is obvious. That’s unfortunate because in allowing the discussion to be...

The Cheap Shots Just Keep Coming

The Cheap Shots Just Keep Coming Virginia rally exposes the gun control-owned media’s fear that the U.S. might run out of mass shootings.  Not a chance.
