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elections, the war of words has been dialed to eleven and, now that the initiative is law, the harsh language has been replaced by action.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...

Can We Say ‘Gun Craze’ and Get Away With It?

It was hectic last week in Las Vegas when hundreds of exhibitors rolled out new guns and gear products for 2019. Just a few years ago, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) enhanced their annual extravaganza by establishing a Media Day at the Range the day before the SHOT Show opened. That gave gun writers...

Find My iGun

Maybe a sign of the times is really about smart bullets A recent event in Wisconsin, a Firearm Safety Expo at Oak Creek’s Milwaukee Area Technical College, showcased a number of so-called “smart gun” technologies available today or under development. We’ve all been watching the topic for years now, mostly with a heap of skepticism...

Selling Shoes and Snake Oil

Finding a groove in the age of Millennia is no small feat. Yet, Blake Mykoskie, he of the Tom’s Shoes phenomena, has launched yet another campaign far apart from the discovery that the Argentinian canvas alpargatas shoes could make him a rich man. Mykoskie, who found his celebrity as a former contestant on the reality...

Gun Control? Say It Isn’t So

OK. It isn’t so. But for those still insisting that it is, such as in the U.S. edition of the UK’s Guardian newspaper, an explanation is needed. First, yesterday’s Guardian headline: In a major victory for gun control advocates, the story begins, the legislation aims to close longstanding loopholes in federal law, which requires criminal...

New Background Checks Kickoff

Monday, January 7, 2019 | While much of America watched the NFL playoffs over the weekend, Congressional Democrats are instead planning to launch their gun control ball towards the goal posts tomorrow. Essentially, Team Pelosi will announce universal background checks, possibly the only dink and dunk strategy that may actually make it between the uprights....

Guns and The Big Lie: Taking a Detour Down Victim Lane

January 2, 2019 | Anti-gun forces are all about the BIG LIE. Tell a big enough lie often enough and folks might believe it. I suppose that it is possible to think that a gun-related suicide is a form of “gun violence,” as the antis now argue. But the truth is that classifying it as...

Gun Owners Are the Political Minority

December 19, 2018 | Three Hundred million guns in America was enough to scare the Japanese in 1941 but it doesn’t raise a hair on Chuckie Schumer’s bald spot. The Democrat Senate Minority Leader is, like his House counterpart, Nancy Pelosi, steadfast in their pursuit of more gun control. While that is alarming to some...

The Russian Butina Bungle

December 17, 2018 —“If you plead guilty to a crime your chances are good that you won’t serve any more time in jail.” How good is that? If you’ve already spent six months behind bars for the first time in your life, any reason that might lead to your release is an invitation too hard...
