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…

Hogg’s Piggish Gun Control Protest Costs Dems All of Publix’ Bacon

Tuesday, May 29, 2018 – It was just a matter of time before David Hogg, the liberal Parkland anti-gun protester, let his ego get the best of him. In an effort to force-feed his bullhorn rhetoric during a “die-in” at an NRA-supporting grocery chain by convincing his juvenile cohorts to lay on the floor of the store and disrupt…

Writing Headlines

Thursday, May 24, 2018 —  Yesterday’s Los Angeles Times headline: Blaming everything but guns for the Santa Fe shooting makes Americans look ridiculous. We disagree:  Blaming everything but criminals for the Santa Fe shooting makes the L.A. Times look ridiculous.

The mainstream media earned its public criticism because it jumps to conclusions before it recognizes its own factual errors. Either that…

Duping Inexperienced Schoolkids

Wednesday, May 23, 2018 – After Parkland, thousands of concert-loving students (and plenty of post-grads, as well) filled Pennsylvania Avenue in DC on March 24 as part of the March For Our Lives gun protest. Heavily scripted speeches and hand-holding signage carried all the usual platitudes of the establishment gun control campaign groups. Kids are easily impressionable and love…

Birds Without Feathers

Weekend, May 19-20,2018 — What should be among the simplest of shots boils down to this: Moving targets give some hunters fits.  Over the scan of a few dozen years we’ve seen and experienced frustration from bird hunters; not because there weren’t any birds but because the shooting consisted of more misses than hits. Ease up a bit, pardner;…

Slipping through the Crack-pots

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 – Another one that slipped through the cracks. On Monday police arrested the Tennessee Waffle House shooter without incident.  Details of the arrest are still emerging.  What is most egregiously known, however, is that, like the Parkland, Florida school shooter, government and the litany of strict gun control regulations failed once again. Travis Reinking, 29,…

To Hell With School. Walk-outs Are More Fun

Friday, April 20, 2018 – After Parkland and CNN’s anti-gun rigged townhall telecast, a wave of enthusiasm fell over the gun control effort like a rock concert rhapsody. That extravaganza brought out a tsunami of media coverage too sweet to miss and, predictably, newspapers and TV cameras gave Everytown’s Moms the publicity explosion they badly needed. In little better than…

Marching For Our Gun Rights

Friday, April 13, 2018 – Gun rights advocates – unless they’re in the military or law enforcement – are by nature not protest marchers. We leave that to the gun control wackos. It became instantly obvious after the CNN Townhall opportunity that gun control organizers took it upon themselves to show the teenie-tots from Stoneman Douglas how to put…
