Republicans Caving on Kavanaugh? The Gun Issue

Friday, September 21, 2018 – As reluctant as we may be in addressing the politics of fear – according to Bob Woodward’s analysis of President Trump’s method of governing – writer Frank Miniter has landed on Fox News with a single mission headline:
America needs Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court – Here’s why.

Allowing that Miniter, being one of “us” in…

Hoggwash: Where was Never Again and We Call BS? Marching For Their Lives?

Wednesday, September 19, 2018 — Somehow the Parkland Survivors didn’t make a stop in Apopka, Florida.  Had they done so, they would have found students with guns shooting at each other – something more they can blame on the NRA. Scroll down for the story and the video of one of the students taking aim at another student over…

The Panic Mode Effect

Friday, August 31, 2018 – “There’s been another school shooting,” came the report Thursday. Gun owners cringed. Gun controllers rushed to social media to spread the word about needing more gun laws “or something.” Police responded quickly. Four schools went on lockdown. Students at the target school dived under their desks as teachers locked doors and turned off lights…

Exporting .50 Caliber Free Speech is Illegal

Thursday, August 30, 2018 – While we all may have become numbed by the flap over 3-D printing of guns, confusion within the public debate remains constant. Check just about any media mention by a public servant, especially one elected to state legislatures or Congress, and you’ll find screeching heads exclaiming that the whole American population armed with plastic…

Defense Distributed Now the ITunes of Downloadable Guns

Wednesday, August 29, 2018 – The panic from the Left over Cody Wilson’s irascible determination to buck the gun control system right along with his unwavering adherence to free speech is remarkable for its misconstruction of understanding the practical meaning of both the First and the Second Amendments to the Constitution. On the one hand, liberals vehemently defend their…

ROGERS: SAFE or Unsafe – New York and the NRA

Tuesday, August 28, 2018 – Following the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in December 2012, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo arm-twisted the state legislature just a month later to pass the SAFE (Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement) Act. The legislation, which among other screwy components, would limit AR-15 magazines to seven rounds, despite the fact that no 7-round…

The Fallacy of Economic Gun Control

Monday, August 20, 2018 – Last week Louisiana took the bull by the horns. Literally. Citibank and Bank of America are joining with credit card payments processor Spotify and other financial Wall Street megalodon money sharks that have decided to ban most anything firearms-related from their services. Somewhat reminiscent of Delta Airlines’ refusal to honor its fare discounts to…

School Daze and Those Scary Gunz Are Only Part of What’s Keeping Your Kids Safe

Tuesday, August 14, 2018 – In much of America, summer unofficially ends during the next two weeks and another school year begins. We’ll begin seeing news reports about Parkland, Florida and Santa Fe, Texas and other venues where shootings have killed students and teachers. And we’ll shudder once again thinking that somebody with a gun will get into a school…

Hold Yer Horses!

Hold Yer Horses!

Weekend, August 4-5, 2018 – There was this city kid. Grew up in what used to be a normal neighborhood. At age 8 he was building sidewalk scooters – old roller skates nailed to one-inch thick boards with a 1×1” post and handle. Worked well mostly despite falling off many times and crashing into the…

Feel-Good Gun Laws and Being Careful What You Wish For

Friday, August 03, 2018 – The amount of time, money and energy expended by the gun control movement in the U.S. is impressive. The colluding media has done a good job of falsely making violence by gun about as acceptable as passing the basket every Sunday in church. Like it or not, just like wildfires in California or floods…

Fear of the Unknown

Monday, July 30, 2018 – What we don’t know is bound to hurt us. At least, that’s how America sees itself these days. Anti-gun advocates who pushed banning guns were driven by fear following every so-called mass shooting in the U.S.  Fearing criminals, it seems to us, should be more productive than fearing guns. Yet, that fear drove gun sales…

The Trap Called Social Media

Friday, June 29, 2018 – Society has become enslaved to the whims of thumbs and keyboards. There was a time when typewriters were both novel and iconic; novel because they replaced the ink pen, and iconic because they became the tool of the deadline author. Next will be called foolish by some, contemplative by others: Social media has become…

No Easy Answers

Tuesday, June 26, 2018 – The immigration tragedy in Central America is having effects far beyond America’s politics. President Trump is correct in pushing his border control policies. Yet, there is the human component that, just as we send American troops to the Middle East to push back those Sharia law proponents in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and other places, we…

Raging Crossbows

Weekend, June 23-24, 2018 — I shot a recurve bow. It was my faith in it (and probably a lot of practice) that put me on the road to bowhunting. I never gave up my love for rifles; my deer gun, for instance was – and still is – a .257 Roberts. My elk rifle was a 7mm…

Moms Demanded Action…and They Got It!

Monday, June 18, 2018 – It was art for the sake of art, an all-nighter in Trenton, New Jersey, designed to let people bathe in the afterglow of peace and tranquility. Great idea. Until, that is, gunfire broke out around 3 am and had attendees scrambling for the exists, including members of the Everytown anti-gun group Mom’s Demand Action for…

The Confusion About Red Flags

Monday, June 04, 2018 – Following the Stoneman Douglas shooting in Parkland, Florida Americans far and wide, regardless of their political affiliation, were upset that law enforcement and the FBI let the shooter slip through the cracks. There was ample warning. The young shooter was known to have psychological problems and boasted on social media about wanting to kill…

Commercial Gun Ranges Are All the Rage

Weekend, June 2-3, 2018 – There was a day not so long ago when gun ranges were little more than a few benches and well-worn trails between the bench and the 100 yard target generally made up of hammering a couple of sticks in the ground and stapling paper pie plates to them. Finding  a commercial gun range was…

Don’t Mess With Texas

Friday, June 1, 2018 – Since the Santa Fe, Texas school shooting, news outlets have basically trashed Governor Gregg Abbott for releasing his emergency plan for protecting the state’s schools as being too soft on guns and only ordering more armed security and little else in the way of gun control. Nothing could be farther from the truth.  In…
