The Unintended Consequences of Gun Control

Friday, November 17, 2017 – In our zeal to stay steps ahead of lawmakers such as those who dominate California’s gun control laws, the bird has finally left the nest. In other words, the dirty little secret of firearms “workarounds” forced on law-abiding gun owners who have been wilting in the workplace of overcoming stupidly conceived feel-good gun laws…

Inches or Miles, a Win is a Win, Gun Controllers Say

Thursday, November 16, 2017 — Connecticut U.S. Senator Chris Murphy is the first to say, excitedly, “We’ve got a win on gun control!”  We’re paraphrasing, of course, but Murphy tipped the half full glass Tuesday when he gleefully announced that a bipartisan agreement in the Senate was near.  Sure enough, Texas Senator John Cornyn said Wednesday that he and Murphy…

The Endless Frustration of Constitutional Change and the Path of Least Resistance

Monday, November 13, 2017 – There are no words left to console the grief of parents who lost their children to Adam Lanza’s crazed and murderous rampage. Every year since December 14, 2012 we choose to remember that date just as we choose to remember 9/11 or December 7th, 1941 or the date of any other fateful occasion on…

“Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition”

Friday, November 10, 2017 – That headline was a favorite tune whistled by soldiers and sailors after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941. Written by songster Frank Loesser, who wrote the music for the Broadway hits Guys and Dolls and How To Succeed in Business Without Even Trying, and the popular winter song Baby, It’s Cold Outside,…

Cops in Church

Thursday, November 09, 2017 – If you were intent on committing murder would you walk into a church you knew was filled with cops?  Not likely. But last February two guys in Dearborn, Michigan, cloaked in Kevlar vests and visibly armed, one wearing a mask, marched right in to the Dearborn PD and were met with police who immediately…

Thoughts and Prayers Are Not Enough. Adding Armed Guards Might Be

Wednesday, November 08, 2017 – Gun control columnists in the national daily newspapers and on TV are now admonishing people – particularly governmental figureheads – for repeatedly saying that victims of gun crime are in their “thoughts and prayers” as if to do so was participating in a new game of Let’s Make A Deal or Who Wants To…

Will the CMA’s Become NFL’d?

Tuesday, November 07, 2017 – Tomorrow night the Country Music Awards will take center stage in Nashville to honor those all-hat, no-cattle stars who’ve made the grade at accomplishing stardom, largely based on the popularity concept of who sold more recordings and bested all the others. This year, however, has the tint of controversy hanging over it not because…

The Gun Law That Failed In Texas

Monday, November 06, 2017 – After the fact, it’s easy to take sides. One group blames the lack of gun laws.  Another says people who commit crimes with guns don’t care about gun laws. Yesterday in Texas both were proven wrong. The killer already had escaped the law that resulted in a felony conviction while serving in the Air…

Good Guy ID Could Help Cops Determine Who Is, Who Isn’t Active Shooter

Friday, November 03, 2017 – The murder of three people in a Denver Area shooting puts emphasis on the use of some kind of visible ID issued along with a CCW permit that separates the good guys with guns from a bad guy with a gun. That obvious fact played out in the Denver area shooting Wednesday night during…

Stolen Guns Proves Gun Control To Be Grabbers’ Biggest Failure

Thursday, November 02, 2017 –  You have to ask: Why couldn’t the gun control crowd see they’ve been made to look foolish? Just consider today’s two Top Story headlines. One says more than 80,000 guns have gone “missing“ in Florida over the past 10 years. The other says that Chicago’s crime guns were not bought legally but, instead, were…

The Unbelievable Headache of California’s Gun Politics

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 – Having run out of new gun laws to write, California legislators this year took a giant step backwards by proposing to lighten prison overcrowding by reducing the penalty for committing a crime with a gun. In 1994, with California at the brink of an epidemic of gun crime, legislators passed the infamous 3-Strikes law…

The Commerce of Gun Theft

Monday, October 30, 2017 — It’s no secret that many gun shops are robbed. Almost daily, the police blotters across America detail stories of gun shops being broken into and many guns are stolen.  Similarly, private homes whose owners have guns are not immune from either invasion (while owners are robbed) or from common burglary. Media attention almost always skews…

It Seems Impossible But Sometimes There Are Just Days Like This

Weekend, October 28-29, 2017 – Pheasant hunters have been spoiled. In the great grasslands of the Midwest, especially, where pheasants thrive because habitat was once abundant, hunters never ever failed to get their fill of harvesting some of what seemed like the overpopulation of those gaudy looking but beautiful-in-flush-and-flight ringnecks. Until now. Recent years have brought about seasonal changes…

The Decline of Pride As An Excuse For Purpose

Friday, October 27, 2017 – In two weeks America will once again pause to honor the men and women who through wars and home-based conflicts keep us safe. Every president since George Washington accepted that duty as paramount to their mission of leadership. November 11th is Veteran’s Day. In college football stadiums across the land, people will gather for…

Space Filler

Monday, October 23, 2017 – There are times when a newspaper’s blank, white area is in need of a transfusion. When that happens, rather than to assign a reporter to objectify the need, an editor simply reaches into the gumball-grabber machine and pulls out something that he/she already knows is a press-rolling deadline time-saver known as the Space Filler….

SURPRISE! It’s Time To Go Duck and Goose Hunting!

Weekend, October 21-22, 2017 — Yes, there is repetition in the telling, but that’s what makes hunting anything special. Like the time my brother, brother-in-law, and I headed to the extreme north-eastern corner of California to a place God forgot, appropriately called Surprise Valley. There, we would meet Dale Houston, an affable fellow whose patient nature wouldn’t allow him…

AWB and The Politics of Gun Control

Monday, October 16, 2017 – California’s governor has just put school kids in extreme danger. He’s taken away the guns of teachers and school administrators in five state school districts who had been given permission by state educational authorities to carry concealed guns to protect their students. All those staff members had been authorized to carry after completing training…

Let’s Get Rid of The First Amendment

Friday, October 13, 2017 – The Constitution is a beautiful document. By comparison, it is the secular bible to which so many gun control miscreants adhere for their own selfish purposes. An op-editorial in today’s Los Angeles Times takes the other extreme by headlining its liturgical epistle, We Don’t Need The 2nd Amendment — We Need A Real Debate…
