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. Because anyone who has seriously looked at anything published by the VPC knows they are not to be taken seriously. From the

Donald Trump is arguably the most controversial President of our time. Some people hate him no matter what. Others love him no matter what. The Brothers debate the many arguments for and against President Donald Trump.

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?
How’s This for a Headline

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

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

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?

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.”

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,
