Gun Laws Have Limits

Monday, February 19, 2018 – It’s not about what you can do. It’s about what you can’t. Passing new laws to control guns has limitations. Our liberal brethren seem to think that a magic political wand – or will – is all that’s needed to put a CANCEL stamp on a piece of paper. That’s only about 227 years too…

The Misleading Lies of Everytown

Friday, February 16, 2018 – The media has no shame. They only have an agenda. It is to disarm America, the cost in lives lost, including children, be damned. Following Wednesday’s school shooting in Florida, CNN’s Dana Bash and Anderson Cooper TV’ed what they wanted to sound like truthful reporting.  It was anything but. About bump stocks Bash said…

Blaming the Gun, Not the Shooter

Thursday, February 15, 2018 – Until America wakes up to the reality of self-protection in its many phases, the ideologically divided advocates of both gun rights and gun control will continue to argue over not who, but what to blame. And we all know what that is. Guns are never going away in America, any more than automobiles, drugs or…

Why The Left Continues to Commit Gun Control Suicide

Thursday, February 01, 2018 – In an absolutely ridiculous display of toilet journalism, the left once again dumps on itself in a tacit acknowledgement that it not only continues to lose its war on guns but has shown its extreme level of despair for all to see. In a major story in The Nation, a liberal mouthpiece magazine, appears…

Concealed Carry In Russia Not So Different From U.S.

Monday, January 29, 2018 – All this time you thought Communism was alive and well in Mother Russia? That went out over a quarter century ago. (Thank you, Ronald Reagan). Now the Russian Federation is based on constitutional government – their version differs considerably from America’s constitution – but, principally, both countries struggle under conservative and liberal political philosophies….

Why a Simple Solution to School Shootings is Ignored By Gun Controllers

Thursday, January 25, 2018 – We’ve heard it too many times when there’s been another school shooting: “We need more gun laws!” and “…if it would save even just one life….” Those who want to blame the NRA and the “gun lobby” spend wasted time calling for Congress and state legislatures to ban this and ban that. Instead, they wail,…

Your Constitutional Rights Are Getting Bumped Off

Monday, January 22, 2018 – You can blame Massachusetts for this. Or New Jersey. Or Illinois. Or any one of these other states considering a ban, and at least two cities, Columbia, SC and Denver: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Maine, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Washington, Oregon, Vermont. Vermont!!? Or you…

For Want of a Single Word, Innocent Gun Owners Can Be Jailed

Wednesday, January 17, 2018 – Adjudicated. It is within the power of an appointed judge to decide if a person – man or woman – should go to prison or other confinement.

Big Game Hunting In The Off-Season

Big Game Hunting In The Off-Season

Bob RogersWeekend, January 13-14, 2018 – A display seen throughout the vast western landscape of America – but not exclusively to the West – is the sight of moose, elk, and deer antlers and even antelope and sheep horns decorating a beam over the doorway of a house, a cabin, a garage, barn or other…

They Know What They Don’t Know About Guns

Tuesday, January 09, 2018 – The shame about gun control advocates is they already know the answer to why they can’t seem to get President Trump’s or the NRA’s attention on funding gun crime research. We use the words ‘gun crime’ because the phrase ‘gun violence’ blames the instrument rather than the perpetrator. The ‘other side,’ however, tactically uses…

Looking Back Reveals The Necessity For Looking Ahead

January 2, 2018 – Old habits die hard but lessons learned from yesterday’s history suggests benefits for tomorrow await.

The Fuzzy Thinking of California’s Gun Controllers: Buy Today What You Can’t Have Tomorrow

Thursday, December 21, 2017 – Yes, fear does work in sometimes unanticipated ways. California gun owners are less than two weeks away from Ammunition Control.

Reciprocity: Keeping Track of the Fine Print

Wednesday, December 20, 2017 — Legislation, like all legal functions, begins and ends with a hope and a prayer. The folks at the NRA, primarily LaPierre and Cox, are not novices when it comes to political strategy.  They didn’t just dream up the idea of concealed carry reciprocity because they thought it was a good idea. Understanding the legislative process…

A Gun Test, More Or Less

Thursday, December 14, 2017 – It has become commonplace for gun control groups and their media conscripts to creatively select words that would seemingly fit their anti-gun agenda. Example: Switch from saying ‘gun violence” to saying “gun safety.” Kind of a calming effect for the weak of heart and frightened at the sight of a gun displayed by anyone…

Keeping Up With the Joneses

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 — Fear that congressional Republicans have lost a seat from their already thin majority has shocked those that see Doug Jones’ victory over Roy Moore as a giveaway to Democrats but it might not be as reliable a bet as it appears. There’s no doubt Jones might be a short-timer; Alabama isn’t turning bright blue as…

HedSpace: My Apocalyptic Four Horses and Their Christmas Buck

Weekend, December 9-10, 2017 – This is a true story. When snow inevitably follows most of Wyoming’s hunting seasons and the temperatures hit zero and below I always knew it was time to load up the hay feeders and toss the water heater into the trough. Winter was setting in for sure and Christmas was just days away. Our…

Rejoicing Over the CCRA May Have To Be Put On Hold

Tuesday, December 05, 2017 – Nothing’s easy. Especially in politics. More-so in gun politics. The NRA is obviously no novice when it comes to developing political strategies with pro-gun congress members. The group, which national headlines are screaming that passage of the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act is the NRA’s highest priority, anticipated massive opposition from the gun control crowd. Just…
