A Moment of Clarity?
Published on   |  By Jeremy Hatfield

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,

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 Jeremy Hatfield

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

Obama Lies About Guns… Again!


Not As Advertised
Published on   |  By Jeremy Hatfield

A complete view of American gun culture is not in gun control’s best interests. It better serves their goals to keep people from seeing the forest for the trees. To this end, gun control arguments tend to center around three major characteristics: omission, emotion, and statistical sleight of hand. This explains why Everytown’s propaganda arm,

Gun Culture, Higher Academia, and Intellectual Honesty
Published on   |  By Jeremy Hatfield

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
