A culture shift against gun owners?

Herschel Smith thinks so. There is such a proliferation of gun control and ammunition control articles, commentaries, editorials and laws that it would be impossible to mention them all, let along discuss them.  Boulder has just announced a new assault weapons ban.  The LA Times advocates ammunition regulation, Smith & Wesson will soon be under pressure from its parent company, Black Rock Investment is pimping gun free investments, a recent challenge to the Massachusetts assault weapons ban has fallen, bump stocks will soon be illegal, the Las Vegas Sun is publishing letters advocating the confiscation of ammunition, and the News

What happens when political correctness trumps criminal reality

Here’s a short, but very interesting interview concerning racial classification issues in schools.  I can attest from personal exposure to schools in such environments that the problem is all too real. One hopes the present Administration will do something to sort out this mess . . . but what?  Its hands are too often tied by state and local officials who won’t budge from their politically correct positions. All I can say is, if your child is trapped in a school like that, get him or her out as soon as possible!  If there are no better alternatives, think about

The gathering storm against Second Amendment rights

Sebastian, writing at Shall Not Be Questioned, offers a useful survey of the forces currently being marshaled against the Second Amendment and the rights of US gun-owners.  I won’t reproduce it here, but I urge you to click over there and read it for yourself.  I think it’s important. Sebastian concludes: The common theme here is demographic trends are catching up to us. Bloomberg’s money is by far the biggest factor. There isn’t enough passion for gun control out there for it to self-organize, but if money is no object, and you have a lot of smart Obama people who

What the actual expletive deleted???

Courtesy of Vox Day, we learn of this message: Click the image for a larger view.  Here’s the critical sentence: MPD received a permit application several months prior to the actual event, and there was several months of planning for this large event. WTF????  Permits for the March For Our Lives demonstration were applied for several months before the Parkland shooting – which was allegedly the event giving rise to the march – had even happened? Two possibilities come to mind: The permit application was for use with a different demonstration, but was rapidly “repurposed” after the Parkland school shooting,

Collective noun of the day

From The Gunslinger, who provides attribution: A group of three or more Prius vehicles is a “Smug” of Prii.  “I’m betting they show up in a Smug of Prii.” Perfect! (For the benefit of overseas readers who may not understand: to drive the electric-hybrid Prius is renowned notorious as an ostentatious nose-in-air “statement” by eco-Nazis that they’re doing their best to protect the environment, while the rest of us plebs in our gas-guzzlers are not.)

Doofus Of The Day #1,003

Today’s award goes to the worker at Planned Parenthood in Pennsylvania who sent out this tweet in the name of that organization: The tweet was taken down almost immediately, as soon as someone realized how utterly asinine it was . . . but the damage was done.  It had already been screenshotted and archived, and has since gone viral. Personally, I don’t think we “need” a Disney princess at all.  I’d far rather little girls were raised by responsible parents, and taught to behave like normal human beings!  There are few enough adults (of either sex) who know how to

“Who is it that I am not permitted to criticize?”

There’s a saying generally attributed to Voltaire, but which was apparently a much later aphorism (allegedly from Kevin Alfred Strom, a white supremacist): To determine the true rulers of any society, all you must do is ask yourself this question: Who is it that I am not permitted to criticize? I suppose it’s ironic that it’s from a white supremacist source, because the following graphic (courtesy of Wirecutter) is extraordinarily well suited to it. That’s so true it hurts.  If one even criticizes (much less condemns) any or all of the first four groups, the Social Justice Warriors, hard-left liberals

Guess who was behind “March For Our Lives”?

I’m sure it’ll come as no surprise to my readers to learn that the whole thing was Astroturfed.  Daniel Greenfield has more. March for Our Lives is on every cable channel, but who runs it? The photogenic teen fronts are out front. But it’s obvious to everyone that a bunch of teens don’t have the resources and skills to coordinate a nationwide movement. Instead it’s the experienced activists who are actually running things. The March for Our Lives Fund is incorporated as a 501(c)(4). Donations to 501(c)(4) groups are not tax-deductible. And they don’t have to disclose donors. That’s why

It’s great to have friends like this!

My friend, armorer, fellow author and blogger Michael Z. Williamson, known in various and sundry circles as “Mad Mike”, “Crazy Einar” (see the T-shirt!) and other appellations, has written two OUTSTANDING blog posts that I think deserve the widest possible circulation. The first is a succinct takedown of gun control dweebs. Gun control’s only philosophical argument is waving the bloody shirt. There are literally zero facts to support the claims, when any objective study is done. In fact, four of the most widely cited sources against gun control all started out in support, and changed their minds based on facts.
