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.”
Gun Control Puts Women at Risk

Taking the tools of self-defense away from women leaves them at a physical disadvantage. Why did the politicians and the news media ignore these issues when shouting for more gun-control?

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
Gun-Control is Wrong for This World

I calculated about 1,800 sexual assault victims were disarmed by gun-control each year. That is important since victims who defend themselves with a gun are almost never raped.

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,
Do We Want Fewer Firearms Accidents in the USA.. or More?
Published on June 26, 2019 | By
I want to make us safer and we might have more firearms accidents than we have today. I put that shocking statement in front of you rather than stand accused of it later. You might think that fewer guns would make us safer. The more I learn, the more I doubt that approach.
Why I Ardently Support The Second Amendment
Published on June 22, 2019 | By
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

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
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
