The Unbelievable Headache of California’s Gun Politics

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 – Having run out of new gun laws to write, California legislators this year took a giant step backwards by proposing to lighten prison overcrowding by reducing the penalty for committing a crime with a gun. In 1994, with California at the brink of an epidemic of gun crime, legislators passed...

The Commerce of Gun Theft

Monday, October 30, 2017 — It’s no secret that many gun shops are robbed. Almost daily, the police blotters across America detail stories of gun shops being broken into and many guns are stolen.  Similarly, private homes whose owners have guns are not immune from either invasion (while owners are robbed) or from common burglary. Media...

It Seems Impossible But Sometimes There Are Just Days Like This

Weekend, October 28-29, 2017 – Pheasant hunters have been spoiled. In the great grasslands of the Midwest, especially, where pheasants thrive because habitat was once abundant, hunters never ever failed to get their fill of harvesting some of what seemed like the overpopulation of those gaudy looking but beautiful-in-flush-and-flight ringnecks. Until now. Recent years have...

The Decline of Pride As An Excuse For Purpose

Friday, October 27, 2017 – In two weeks America will once again pause to honor the men and women who through wars and home-based conflicts keep us safe. Every president since George Washington accepted that duty as paramount to their mission of leadership. November 11th is Veteran’s Day. In college football stadiums across the land,...

Space Filler

Monday, October 23, 2017 – There are times when a newspaper’s blank, white area is in need of a transfusion. When that happens, rather than to assign a reporter to objectify the need, an editor simply reaches into the gumball-grabber machine and pulls out something that he/she already knows is a press-rolling deadline time-saver known...

AWB and The Politics of Gun Control

Monday, October 16, 2017 – California’s governor has just put school kids in extreme danger. He’s taken away the guns of teachers and school administrators in five state school districts who had been given permission by state educational authorities to carry concealed guns to protect their students. All those staff members had been authorized to...

Let’s Get Rid of The First Amendment

Friday, October 13, 2017 – The Constitution is a beautiful document. By comparison, it is the secular bible to which so many gun control miscreants adhere for their own selfish purposes. An op-editorial in today’s Los Angeles Times takes the other extreme by headlining its liturgical epistle, We Don’t Need The 2nd Amendment — We...

To Bump or Not to Bump

October 13, 2017 — In the aftermath of the horrific attack in Las Vegas, the outcry is, of course, for someone to DO SOMETHING. Something that will prevent this sort of thing from ever happening again. Something that will keep everyone safe. Something that will make everyone feel better. Most of the clamor, predictably, is...

The Information Brainstorm and Its Media Overload

Thursday, October 12, 2017 – Yes, the weather outside is frightful but doesn’t begin to compare with the massive and continuous stream of overburdened word-storms about guns offered up daily by America’s poll-loving media. Desperate for often difficult to find evidence that fits a gun control agenda, media continues spewing out so-called fact-finding reportage designed...

Guns Didn’t Kill 59 People In Vegas. Media Did.

Wednesday, October 11, 2017 – It’s almost impossible to rationalize what Stephan Paddock did in Vegas. But we’ll try. Across the nation and ever since the death of soup kitchens following the 1932 Depression, Americans yanked themselves up by their bootstraps.  They did that because several female-led anti-alcohol liquor groups backed by their media cohorts...

Good vs. Evil. Need vs. Want. The Quagmire of Gun Politics.

Tuesday, October 10, 2017 – If it were, say, ice cream for example, a parent might tell their child that they don’t “need” more ice cream in their lives because it wouldn’t be “good” for them. That doesn’t stop the kid from wanting more, whether or not he or she doesn’t “need” more. And so...

Two Guys Go Into A Bar…Stop! We’ve Already Heard That One

Monday, October 9, 2017 – Like a bad joke, the media has been over-exercised for a week since Las Vegas and nothing really new has been revealed. Intrinsically, all the arguments for and against have been played over and over in every newspaper and on every radio and television program. Essentially, bad sitcoms are boring...

How To Turn The Latest Gun Control Effort Into A Negotiation

Friday, October 06, 2017 – But the question now is, will the gun controllers be satisfied if an agreement is struck between them and, say, the NRA? Of course not. Their refusal to accept even little victories is built into their political DNA. Knowing that, LaPierre and Company went straight to the top of Trump...

A Bump In The Night Sets Off A Sales Panic

October 5, 2017 – The havoc that Stephen Paddock set off last Sunday night in Las Vegas has unleashed two significant events: 1) Democrats in Congress want to make illegal any device that converts a garden variety semi-auto AR-15 or AK47 into a full auto rifle, and 2) reportedly caused the website of at least...

Riffing On A Theme. Hollywood’s Hypocrisy On Guns

Wednesday, October 04, 2017 – Anyone who watches movies knows that actors in gun fights are role-playing. That’s what they do. A few like Keanu Reeves or maybe Tom Cruise are genuine, as in knowing what guns do and how they should be used.  And they all get paid a lot of money to pretend...

In Las Vegas You Play By The Numbers

23 GUNS ON SITE, 19 IN HOME Tuesday, October 03, 2017 – Vegas veterans know that everything in Sin City is all about numbers:  room rates, fancy meals, showroom entertainment, lounge drinks, slot machines, tips: you get the picture. Such as the 58 people killed and over 500 wounded or otherwise injured. First reports indicated...

Vegas Shooting Another Opportunity For Gun Control Nuts

BOB ROGERS | Monday, October 02, 2017 – You know the drill. A man with a gun makes headlines and gun control drum-beaters will shout from the rooftops that military-styled rifles should be banned. Ignored will be the note that the shooter was one man apparently in possession of several guns that Las Vegas SWAT...

The Moose In My Backyard

Weekend, September 30-October 1, 2017 — In Wyoming we are blessed with some of the best big game hunting in the country. Next to Alaska and some Canadian provinces we may be just a bit short but what they have some of, we don’t.  And vice versa. When it comes to pronghorn antelope, mule deer, whitetail...
