Gabby, Watts and Brady (GWB) Are All That’s Left of the Anti-Gun Groups

February 26, 2018 — Gone, finally, are the pioneers of gun control, the Sugarmann’s, the Mayors Against, Marching Moms, the various firearms Policy Centers; all those independent growlers who finally gave into the propaganda media that saw GWB as the most outspoken, most relevant, and most well-heeled, i.e., worthy, of headlines and ratings. Some were...

The Ban Plays On

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 — So many people are screaming about banning AR-15s because they are high-powered weapons of war that no one needs anyway. Does anyone even remember the 10-year Federal Assault Weapons Ban? It ran from 1994-2004 and made no measurable difference to crime at all. I’ve got an idea for another 10-year...

Gun Laws Have Limits

Monday, February 19, 2018 – It’s not about what you can do. It’s about what you can’t. Passing new laws to control guns has limitations. Our liberal brethren seem to think that a magic political wand – or will – is all that’s needed to put a CANCEL stamp on a piece of paper. That’s only...

Bullet Points Forever

February 15, 2018 — It seems obvious, but cartridged firearm ammunition is one of mankind’s greatest inventions. Maybe not the wheel. But not too far off. It’s been in use for hundreds of years and will remain common for several hundred more, I wager. This is going to “out” me as a major nerd, but...

Shifting Attitudes May Say More About #MeToo Than You Thought

February 1, 2018 — The shooting sports industry has changed more in the past decade than at any time in history. Its direction is becoming clearer as the panic buying of recent years recedes. It is common to consider the industry as though it were some sort of monolithic block within society. Think that way at...

Don’t Like Them Apples

January 15, 2018 — Gun owners and proponents of the right to keep and bear arms are familiar with the adage “when seconds count, the police are just minutes away.” But what are Americans to think when we see so many stories that show the authorities are not only not always there when we need...

Kosher Gun Laws: The Only Gun Control We’ll Ever Need

January 5, 2018 — Ask the average gun buff if we need new gun laws and the knee-jerk reaction is, “Not just no, but hell no!” That’s followed up with, “What part of ‘Shall not be infringed’ don’t you understand? All those gun laws on the books are illegal and should be repealed!” Let’s just...

Antis’ Whinefest Goes to Court

January 2, 2018 — Antis can’t stand the thought that their lackeys are not in power. So, what do they do? Whine in court. If the stakes weren’t so serious, the antis’ antics would be comical. The most recent head-scratcher involves the antis going to court, asking federal judges to rule in their favor over...

Reciprocity: Keeping Track of the Fine Print

Wednesday, December 20, 2017 — Legislation, like all legal functions, begins and ends with a hope and a prayer. The folks at the NRA, primarily LaPierre and Cox, are not novices when it comes to political strategy.  They didn’t just dream up the idea of concealed carry reciprocity because they thought it was a good idea....

Info On The Las Vegas Shooter Has Gone Dark

Monday, December 18, 2017 | Las Vegas has long been hailed as “the city that never sleeps,” but the coverage of the deadly attack on a country music festival on the night of October 1st has long since gone to bed. The virtual radio silence on this subject, not only from the mainstream media, but...

Keeping Up With the Joneses

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 — Fear that congressional Republicans have lost a seat from their already thin majority has shocked those that see Doug Jones’ victory over Roy Moore as a giveaway to Democrats but it might not be as reliable a bet as it appears. There’s no doubt Jones might be a short-timer; Alabama isn’t...

Overregulation Nightmares

December 1, 2017 — Benjamin Franklin, among others, has been quoted with the fable: “For the want of a nail the shoe was lost, For the want of a shoe the horse was lost, For the want of a horse the rider was lost, For the want of a rider the battle was lost, For the...

The Inescapable SCOTUS Guessing Game

Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017 – As this week began, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear two significant gun cases, an assault rifle ban and mag size limit in Maryland and an open carry law in Florida. Gun rights advocates appeared confused. The highest court in the land typically does not comment on such decisions....

Despite Record Checks For Gun Buyers The Left Keeps Going Through The Motions

Monday, November 27, 2017 — If nothing else than total shopping chaos, Black Friday was yet another revelation for gun controllers. Americans are still buying more guns. We used to tout Barack Obama as the greatest gun salesman. No more. That honor now belongs to the country’s establishment media without which gun sellers would be falling on hard...

The Unintended Consequences of Gun Control

Friday, November 17, 2017 – In our zeal to stay steps ahead of lawmakers such as those who dominate California’s gun control laws, the bird has finally left the nest. In other words, the dirty little secret of firearms “workarounds” forced on law-abiding gun owners who have been wilting in the workplace of overcoming stupidly...

Inches or Miles, a Win is a Win, Gun Controllers Say

Thursday, November 16, 2017 — Connecticut U.S. Senator Chris Murphy is the first to say, excitedly, “We’ve got a win on gun control!”  We’re paraphrasing, of course, but Murphy tipped the half full glass Tuesday when he gleefully announced that a bipartisan agreement in the Senate was near.  Sure enough, Texas Senator John Cornyn said Wednesday...

The Failure of Airport Gun Screening

November 15, 2017 — A recent report reveals that airport security failed to catch over 70 percent of the weapons that testers attempted to sneak through TSA checkpoints. While anyone who has been inconvenienced by the lines and hassle of airport screening should be outraged at this incompetence, we should also be asking what this...

The Endless Frustration of Constitutional Change and the Path of Least Resistance

Monday, November 13, 2017 – There are no words left to console the grief of parents who lost their children to Adam Lanza’s crazed and murderous rampage. Every year since December 14, 2012 we choose to remember that date just as we choose to remember 9/11 or December 7th, 1941 or the date of any...
