Misappropriated Valor
Published on   |  By Jeremy Hatfield

We’ve heard the various stories of miscreants who have never done much with their lives, and never served, but in the interests of getting a little attention, find a uniform, some patches and other insignia, and parade around public places.  “Stolen valor” is offensive to those of us who value the sacrifice our military men


Who Really Wants You to Be Ready?

I subscribe to Everytown’s email list; not because I agree with them, but because in the war over ideas and perspectives, it’s useful to know how the opposition thinks, especially if your rights are at stake.  Weaknesses in their arguments are easier to find that way, too. For example, in this email, Everytown attempts to


No Gross Duty

A couple of weeks ago, a relative of mine posted a news item on Facebook from a news station in SC.  A very patriotic pair who run a car dealership was offering buyers of a new truck a flag, a Bible, and an AR-15. I thought to myself, “Good salesmen.” They know their market.  Coming


The Best Gun Control Measure
Published on   |  By Jeremy Hatfield

When I got my first handgun, 20 years ago this month, I was showing it off to a friend who also happened to be one of my pastors. I remember him saying, in his thick Colombian accent, “It is sad that such things are needed, but it is good that someone like you has it.”


For the Children™
Published on   |  By Jeremy Hatfield

One of my observations in nearly 20 years of the Great American Gun Debate is how the gun control side seems to value feelz over facts. Given the fact that humanity is hard-wired to protect and nurture children (even those that aren’t our own), that emotional button is an easy one for advertisers and politicians


Mugged by Reality
Published on   |  By Jeremy Hatfield

There’s nothing like reality giving you a little kick in the pants to show you just how unprepared you are for a crisis. I spent the last three days in Alaska’s Copper River basin, dipnetting for red salmon. In preparation for the trip, I packed what I thought I’d needed for about everything I was


A Moment of Clarity?
Published on   |  By Jeremy Hatfield

I read something amusing in one of the Trace’s daily email blasts I get. Their rhetorical cat-herder (aka editorial director) wrote, “We hope that The Trace’s journalism has helped you understand gun violence more fully.” … *snert* Because I am well acquainted with the fast-and-loose relationship the Trace–well, Everytown in general–has with “guns” and “understanding.”


Progressive Tribal Withdrawal
Published on   |  By Jeremy Hatfield

Once, I remember hearing a Baptist preacher speak from the pulpit, how lamentable it was that his fellow Baptists had let the Pentecostals scare them out of believing for healing. It’s in the Bible, after all, and no one loves the Bible better than Baptists. Some Pentecostals and their charismatic cousins can be rather noisy


Why I Ardently Support The Second Amendment
Published on   |  By DeputyMatt

Often at times like this, just after a cop has just been callously murdered by some dirtbag with a gun, people ask me how it is that I, as a brother in blue, can be such a strong advocate of the second amendment. I have recently been in the very shoes that many Sacramento PD
