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

Something happened this past weekend that was so juicy, Tropicana would be all over it. But, I think it would be against my sense of decency to broadcast it. For the past six years, on the heels of every overexposed shooting that’s happened, we’ve seen the fanboys and fangirls of one particular hoplophobia herd proclaim

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

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

So, the Violence Policy Center was…invited(?) to speak at that Congressional Hearing on “Protecting America from Assault Weapons.” Which, to me, really shows more desperation on behalf of the Party of Gun Control.

We’ve heard him try to impress us with his bilingualism (being multilingual myself, I am not terribly impressed, but that may be just me), interpolating Spanish into his public speeches. But did you know what his phrase for “I will not be President” is?

The above picture is of somebody in the Austin area, who, feeling guilt-ridden over owning a piece of hardware similar to what was used in a grossly criminal act, decided to turn his in, and make a scene of it. Never mind that the former AK owner was nothing like the shooter, and more than
The Gun and I: 20 Years

This month marks my 20th year as a gun owner. In recognition of this personal milestone, I’d like to share with you a link to something I wrote to Wake Forest University professor Dr. David Yamane last year, who turned it into a post for his blog, Gun Culture 2.0. Since Dr. Yamane is a
Ladies, Guns Help Us Understand You!

I understand gun ownership can sometimes be the source of tension in a relationship, but ladies, have you ever considered how these help your man understand you better? I’m being completely serious. You know how, at the end of the day, after multiple readjustments of your brassiere, you ladies just can’t wait to get home

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.”
