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

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.”


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

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


Betsy Who?

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,


More Observations from a Free State
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

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


Fide et Armis
Published on   |  By 99point7percent

One perspective on gun ownership and faith. How can a believer manage guns and God? As with any issue, I turn to Paul’s advice governing those negotiable issues of our faith–“Let each be fully assured in his own mind.” For that, you need to go to God for your best answer. Too often we try
