The Knee-jerk Reaction To Every New Mass Shooting

If shooting works inherently, only basketball players need apply Some day, in retrospect, we will look back on Columbine, Sandy Hook, Aurora, Phoenix, MSD Parkland, Las Vegas, etc. etc. and conclude that our universal reaction made no difference. Norway proved that. Paris proved that, Australia proved that and, yes, New Zealand proved that. We seem...

Murphy’s Law is Unnatural Nowhere Else But in America

The Senator is convinced that anything that goes wrong always will “This happens nowhere else other than the United States of America,” said Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy after the shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. “It only happens here not because of coincidence, not because of bad luck, but as a...

Taking My Guns and Goin’ Fishing

Making American Great Again may be more than a slogan next time around    In a sea of red the first thing that comes to mind might be a hungry shark and maybe that’s the way the Demanding Moms see the ocean. But we’ve caught plenty of fish in ponds much smaller than this so...

The Business of Guns is Not Always Reality in the Board Room

CEOs may be hot crap within their own organizations, but they don’t mean squat in the real world. If nothing else, the gun control debate brings out the worst in both people and the media since the issue from the antis’ side is pure emotion and from the pro’s side is logic and common sense....

The Gun Control Party Should Explain Why It’s Against Disarming Criminals

And, while we’re at it, if Democrats want to lower the voting age to 16 shouldn’t they allow 16-year olds to buy guns? The New Mexico Legislature passed a universal background check bill Tuesday mimicking the US House of Representatives passage last month of HR 8. The rationale for both resides in the assumption that...

Gun Control Sanctuaries Now Twisting In The Wind

When the breeze began to blow too hard to handle, gun controllers didn’t know if it was a tornado or a tsunami. It might be both. You’ll remember her name: Kate Steinle. Walking with her father on pier 14 in the Embarcadero district of San Francisco July 1, 2015, she was shot and killed by...

The Choice is Simple: Choose Individual Freedom or Collective Captivity

Following the law used to be easy. Then Congress got involved. Gun control: What happens if government passes laws and they are not followed? Potentially, all kinds of things and none are good. This question has been hushed in the background for some time now, as society becomes more and more polarized politically. The two...

House Passes High Flying Gun Bill; Senate Expected To Shoot It Down

Hopes of Democrats likely to see their flights of fancy comimg within range of Republican wing-shooters House Democrats and their anti-gun allies are celebrating passage yesterday of what they call the most “historic” gun control bill in 25 years. As if it is expected to pass Senate muster, as well. Those counting on the historical record...

The Rebellious Sheriffs: Friends To 2A Gun Owners

Government’s heavy thinkers are now wondering if they’ve overstepped their own law It should be obvious by now that some law enforcement – county sheriffs elected by the people they serve rather than police chiefs appointed by politicians – are strong constitutionalists. As such, they risk defying state, city, county and municipal puppet masters. That...

The Feel-Good Shoot House

There’s a song, “A House is Not a Home,” which has been recorded over the years by many hip jazz singers. A line in the lyrics is, “…when there’s no one living there.” It bespeaks a separation between its differing occupants for whatever reason frequently found when love is lost. That’s the scenario we’ll see...

Washington Showdown

The situation in the state of Washington is tense and getting tenser by the day. Ever since Initiative 1639 was passed by state voters in November elections, the war of words has been dialed to eleven and, now that the initiative is law, the harsh language has been replaced by action. Or, in the case...

Seeing Guns Every Day Can Make Even Fright Night Disappear

If what you can’t see can’t hurt you, says the old front porch philosopher, maybe it’s also true that seeing isn’t believing, either. In a Florida school for the first time ever, at least two armed guards this year will patrol the halls and the school grounds carrying those “scary” AR-15 rifles. Or their many...

Trophy Game Has a Price On Its Head

Debate flares up over selling locations of big game animals; useful idiots help anti-hunters Hunters have met the enemy and he is us. A bill was introduced into the Montana legislature on Jan. 25 that would outlaw the selling of locations of big game animals on public land, and the relatively new, left-leaning group Backcountry...

The Mirror Image of Gun Control

Look in the mirror and what do you see? Yourself, of course. Thus, when Democrats hail the ‘new dawn’ of gun control they are only looking at themselves: Lonely Democrats surrounded by other equally lonely Democrats. When they took back majority seating in the House of Representatives last November Speaker Nancy Pelosi boldly announced that...

Why You May Someday Be Singing “New York, New York, It’s a Wonderful Town”

It would be incomprehensible for the U.S. Supreme Court to shrink their focus next year on just the issue of New York’s draconian self-protection gun carry permit law. As it now stands, a NYC licensed gun owner cannot transport his gun outside his home even to take it to a gun range unless it is...

Michael Bloomberg, President and New Top Gun Salesman

The race is on for the 2020 presidential primaries and Mike Bloomberg may just run away with the Democratic nomination. While he has little passion for the title, President of the United States, Bloomberg does have an affinity for supporting measures he feels is contrary to the public health. One of those undertakings was his...

The Reinvention of an Unyielding Firearms Industry, Continued

Keeping on. Because that’s what we do. The shooting sports industry and its consumers are unique in the world for a number of reasons ranging from the lethal products that protect individual lives and even entire nations to human rights to social responsibility. Complicating the equation is the fact that the shooting sports industry and...

Should Majority Rule Always Prevail on Guns?

As old and durable as is the plurality standard, “majority rules,” there come times when the rule to prevail is revealed as a matter of misjudgment or, at the very least, misunderstanding. That’s the unfortunate case which legal gun owners find themselves after being defeated by voters who literally ‘don’t have a clue’ about guns...
