NAT’L – OPINION – We Don’t Need Red Flag Laws, We Need More Good Americans To Get Guns

Name the civil liberty that has ever been returned to the citizens after government took it away. Let me save you some time: It does not exist. Governments take away liberties and never return them outside of a political revolution. The American people are not the ones in need of a “cooling off” period when they purchase weapons. It is the U.S. government that should be restricted…

DC – OPINION – Guns and the ‘New Class’

The pattern was established long ago. A killing spree happens. The Democratic Party and mainstream media erupt in calls for gun control. Republicans shy away from cable news for a few days. Various fixes to the background check and mental health systems are proposed, video games are criticized, and eventually our attention turns elsewhere, until another spectacular attack restarts the cycle. President Trump increases the volume and…

NAT’L – OPINION – Limit Some Guns for Cosmetic Reasons

It seems to be necessary to begin every discussion in America today with a reminder to show a little charity. If you oppose gun control, don’t assume that those proposing restrictions on gun purchases are merely using the latest atrocity as an excuse for confiscation. Likewise, gun opponents should rid themselves of the notion that, but for the evil machinations of the NRA, commonsense gun control would…

NV – OPINION – Experts dissect the gun debate: What gun control advocates are missing (VIDEO)

NV – OPINION – Experts dissect the gun debate: What gun control advocates are missing (VIDEO)

Mass shootings often spark heavy debate on social media but consistently to no avail. Experts say there won’t be any progress unless gun control advocates fully understand the other side and why guns are ingrained in America’s culture. Jonathan Obert, a political science professor at Amherst College and an…

TX – OPINION – With every fatal shot, we all bleed

Whatever his flaws and failures, President Trump is not responsible for 22 dead and 24 injured in El Paso. If he were, we could solve this problem simply by electing a new president. We can’t. From the other side, here’s another knee jerk response: “It’s not the gun; it’s the person.” No doubt, it takes person to pull a trigger. But what trigger he pulls matters. A…

DC – OPINION – I could be the target of a hate crime, and liberals want to disarm me

In June, a mob of men beat a gay man senseless in downtown Washington, D.C., calling him a “faggot” and assaulting him in front of his boyfriend. I wrote about the tragedy at the time. Several weeks have passed, but with this weekend’s tragic shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas, and the gun control frenzy that has predictably ensued, I’m reminded of the savage anti-gay beating near…

NAT’L – OPINION – The gun industry’s clear and present danger: liability to shooting victims

The day before a gunman killed 22 shoppers at an El Paso Wal-Mart in what appears to be a racially motivated hate crime, the maker of a military-style semi-automatic rifle used in the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School pleaded with the U.S. Supreme Court to shut down an attack on the firearms industry. I don’t know if the gun industry is worried that, somehow, this…

NYC – OPINION – The Killers in Our Midst

(Subscription)  The mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton over the weekend are horrifying assaults on peaceful communities by disturbed young men. American politics will try to simplify these events into a debate about guns or political rhetoric, but the common theme of these killings is the social alienation of young men that will be harder to address. One response to reject is the reflex to blame these shootings on political opponents. Before…

NAT’L – OPINION – Glock: The 1 Gun That Always Seems To Always Dominate (Why?)

For much of the mid-twentieth century, handgun development was in a period of stagnation. The development of the semiautomatic pistol had ushered in a new weapon that, although more complex than a revolver, had a higher ammunition capacity. Quickly adopted by armies around the world, the steel-framed semiautomatic reigned for decades. Then, in the 1980s, something came along that disrupted the firearms industry: the Glock handgun. Today it’s carried by…

NAT’L – OPINION – Secret FBI Informant In The Maria Butina Case Says He Was Part Of A “Soft Coup” Against President Trump

One of the saddest episodes to emerge from the anti-Russia hysteria the Democrats and NeverTrump weenies managed to generate after the 2016 election is the case of Maria Butina. (You can chant “Russia is not our friend” under your breath to create the correct ambiance.) Butina, a member of a nascent Russian gun rights movement, was sentenced to 18 months in prison for failing to register under…

PA – Opinion – Balance Public Safety, Responsible Gun Ownership

Growing up near Scranton, my upbringing told two very different stories surrounding gun ownership. The first started with having an extra day off from school after Thanksgiving for the start of hunting season. Some students, teachers and their families ventured out into the NEPA forest to continue long-held hunting traditions. I learned that some families owned both hunting rifles and small firearms to use for personal protection….

CA – OPINION – Guns and the gospel: A personal perspective

“And a little child shall lead them,” we read in Scripture.  Or in the words of Jesus himself, “out of the mouths of babes and infants” comes the truth. Across our land, students, teachers, families, police officers, social workers and pew-sitting Christians are in an uproar about America’s lack of effective control of abuse of guns. Adults have debated and argued the matter through the killings and…

KY – OPINION – Be prepared for more folks to be ‘packing heat’

Now that Kentucky has joined the list of states where you no longer need a permit or safety training to carry a concealed deadly weapon, those of us without a gun will have to be more careful. The likelihood that a disagreement with a neighbor or another motorist could lead to gunfire has increased substantially. The scariest thing about this latest legislative victory by the NRA is…

CA – OPINION – The Right Stuff: What will the Democrats run on?

I, like many, watched the Democratic Party’s two-day traveling road show billed as debate. There is a reason Broadway shows have trial runs before hitting Broadway. Well, after the painful experience of watching “#MeToo” and socialist/progressive economic nonsense plus character assassination, I am reminded of the Old West snake oil salesman – Dr. Feel Good’s cures that cured nothing and usually hurt you. What will…

INT’L – OPINION – What Happened When New Zealand Paid People While Confiscating Their Guns

New Zealand’s government wants you to know that their first pass at gun confiscation was a great success, but a look at the facts may tell you otherwise. Exactly how these measures succeed or fail in New Zealand will illustrate the problem with the gun control plans of politicians both there and in the United States. It also signals that the gentle words of gun controllers must…

NAT’L – OPINION – Anti-Gun Forces Misplace Blame for Evil Actions

According to a story in the Nashville Ledger, lawyers for a tragedy-stricken family are proving that the proverbial slippery slope regarding “common sense” gun laws is no myth. No one can fault someone for grieving the loss of a loved one. But one can fault someone for their misdirected remedy: infringing on others’ constitutional rights. Emotion is a poor trier of fact. Many gun owners believed, and still…

WA – OPINION – This is what happens when law enforcement opposes a gun initiative

Washington state voters approved the controversial gun measure Initiative 1639 last November despite the opposition of several state law enforcement organizations. That lack of support from police and sheriffs was a red flag, we thought, and was a key reason we recommended against I-1639. Approving sweeping new gun control laws without the support of those who have to enforce them is bound to cause problems. Early in…

NAT’L – OPINION – Let’s have that ‘conversation’ about guns and why we’re never giving them up

Our friends on the national socialist Left love to bring up the issue of guns in the context of a ‘serious crisis’. Tying to make it seem as Corey Booker falsely claims that there is a mass shooting every day. Well, it’s been several days since one of those occurrences, so that is clearly a lie. Even the Washington Post has made it clear that gun homicides have dropped substantially…
