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


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

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


Dangers of Poorly Thought Out Social Media Posts by LE Agencies
Published on   |  By DeputyMatt

I don’t like to jam up law enforcement agencies, especially not ones that are local to me and ones that I have friends who work there, but dammit Stockton PD, really? Or maybe it is just the person who runs your social media, but this Facebook post is absolutely HORRIBLE! I get it, that gun


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
