Even Though They are Completely Undeserving…
Published on   |  By Jeremy Hatfield

Something happened this past weekend that was so juicy, Tropicana would be all over it. But, I think it would be against my sense of decency to broadcast it. For the past six years, on the heels of every overexposed shooting that’s happened, we’ve seen the fanboys and fangirls of one particular hoplophobia herd proclaim


Who Really Wants You to Be Ready?

I subscribe to Everytown’s email list; not because I agree with them, but because in the war over ideas and perspectives, it’s useful to know how the opposition thinks, especially if your rights are at stake.  Weaknesses in their arguments are easier to find that way, too. For example, in this email, Everytown attempts to


No Gross Duty
Published on   |  By Jeremy Hatfield

A couple of weeks ago, a relative of mine posted a news item on Facebook from a news station in SC.  A very patriotic pair who run a car dealership was offering buyers of a new truck a flag, a Bible, and an AR-15. I thought to myself, “Good salesmen.” They know their market.  Coming


VPC: The Pace Car of Gun Control Misinformation
Published on   |  By Jeremy Hatfield

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 Jeremy Hatfield

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 Jeremy Hatfield

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 Jeremy Hatfield

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 Jeremy Hatfield

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 Jeremy Hatfield

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
