A Moment of Clarity?
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

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

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


Betsy Who?

Remember when Betsy Riot was a thing? They were another loose collection of gun control groupies who really thought they’d be the end of the NRA and usher in a gun-free new age. Their tools involved a lot of vulgar language (f**kyerguns being their battle cry), and a lot of inordinate thought given to the,


More Observations from a Free State

Gun Control types still scoff at the idea that the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, all the while believing that, somehow, the disarmed model of confronting a bad guy with a gun will ensure a better outcome. *** I read some pearl-clutching in


Fide et Armis

One perspective on gun ownership and faith. How can a believer manage guns and God? As with any issue, I turn to Paul’s advice governing those negotiable issues of our faith–“Let each be fully assured in his own mind.” For that, you need to go to God for your best answer. Too often we try


Not As Advertised

A complete view of American gun culture is not in gun control’s best interests. It better serves their goals to keep people from seeing the forest for the trees. To this end, gun control arguments tend to center around three major characteristics: omission, emotion, and statistical sleight of hand. This explains why Everytown’s propaganda arm,


Gun Culture, Higher Academia, and Intellectual Honesty

In grad school, I read Rolf Hochhuth’s Der Stellvertreter, which was a dramatic play about what the churches did and did not do during the Holocaust.  English translations render the title as “The Deputy,” but the word itself is more closely related to “Vicar,” as in someone who represents another.  The title itself asked the


On Rights and Needs

Sooner or later, every gun owner or gun rights advocate will have these questions asked to him or her: “Why do you need a gun?” “Why do you need *that* gun?” “Why do you need so many guns?” “Why do you need to carry a gun to get groceries?” “Why do you need so much


Gross Negligence & Terror: How I Barely Survived a Day in The Streets of a Gun-Friendly State

This Isn’t Hyperbole; Really, it’s Not!   A few years ago, Moms Demand activist Hedi Yewman got a gun and carry license to get some sort of “inside perspective” on gun culture.  More recently, Giffords founder Mark Kelly bought an evil black rifle to try to demonstrate…something…involving the legal purchase of an evil black rifle.

As you may recall from the last article, a growing number of friends encouraged me to simply shoot my “new” gun, and see what happens.
