VPC: The Pace Car of Gun Control Misinformation
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

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


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


The Gun and I: 20 Years
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

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!
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

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


The Best Gun Control Measure
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

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.”


For the Children™
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

One of my observations in nearly 20 years of the Great American Gun Debate is how the gun control side seems to value feelz over facts. Given the fact that humanity is hard-wired to protect and nurture children (even those that aren’t our own), that emotional button is an easy one for advertisers and politicians


Mugged by Reality
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

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?
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.”


The Purges Continue At The NRA

When you ran afoul of Josef Stalin, if you were lucky you got sent to the gulag. If you were not so lucky, you got the proverbial ounce of lead and burial in an unmarked grave. You were also airbrushed out of any picture in which you appeared with the General Secretary. The picture above illustrates what


Progressive Tribal Withdrawal
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

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
