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…

Remember This Man’s Name:  Mark Robinson

Friday, April 06, 2018 – March For Our Lives?  Black Guns Matter?  We Are Freedom’s Safest Place?  Everytown?  Demanding Moms?  Giffords?  David Hogg?  They all pale in comparison to Mark Robinson of Greensboro, North  Carolina. We’ve all heard similar messages about guns, pro and con, good and bad, this way and that way. Eventually we become numb at hearing…

Active Shooter: The New Normal

Wednesday, April 04, 2018 – “My stomach sinks with yet another active shooter alert,” California Senator Diane Feinstein (D–California) tweeted Tuesday afternoon. And so did ours. And probably yours, as well. Each such event makes us grit our teeth because we know the wave of anti-gun media enterprise will reach out and touch us once again. That certainly fits the…

Should Parents of Student Victims Sue Schools?

Monday, April 02, 2018 – There’s always a caveat for most everything. Even school shootings. The country, having just gone through another attack on students, continues to search for prevention measures, mostly in the form of legislation, that would put a stop to these education massacres: Without thinking things through, as a practical matter, a misguided focus on the…

Wild Wyoming

Easter Weekend, March 31-April 1, 2018 — This weekend is more or less reserved for peace, quiet, and for the ourdoorsman, the tranquility of stars in the night sky, treks through the snowy high country without gun or bow, and walks along sea or lake shore retrospecting on the hunting memories of past seasons. It is…

Hogging Free Speech

Friday, March 30, 2018 – To a degree, Americans have the right to free speech, according to the constitution. Likewise, Americans have the right to self-protection. But a snot-nosed kid from Florida rejected by several colleges of higher learning in even liberal California, took it upon himself to demonstrate to all others that free speech really isn’t free and, somewhat…

What the NRA is Missing on Guns

Monday, March 26, 2018 – The appalling ignorance on guns among non-gun owning Americans has served the goals of media for years. The end result which media

applauds in their “ignorance is bliss” campaigning is their indoctrination of the general public on the evils of guns. That ignorance was on display around the world during  Saturday’s March For Our Lives…
