An Internet Gun Ban: Killing The First And Second Amendments


President Obama recently announced several Executive Actions on gun control. These were relatively minor steps (there is only so much a president can do on his own) but every single one was a poke in the eye to gun owners. Even his proposal to add more agents to the NICS background check system could be […]

Cecil The Lion And Ethical Hunting


What is ethical hunting? What is the difference between shooting a lion and shooting a deer? For that matter what is poaching?

Fewer Guns = Fewer Murders?

Taken at its face if we had no guns there would be no firearm murders. That is a fact same as saying that before we had cars there were no motor vehicle fatalities.

The Racist Taco

Hint for White people: It is the hat that makes this racist. Otherwise a great costume.

There is no such thing as a bad taco, except for no tacos or ones that make you run for the bathroom. There are however racist tacos. Here is my story. Back in the early 90s we had this thing called Political Correctness especially on college campuses. Everyone was a weenie and white people had […]

End Background Checks For Gun Purchases


The general public is constantly assailed with the notion that “universal background checks” for gun purchases are just a simple and acceptable “common sense” approach to keeping guns out of the hands of criminals or violent persons.

Full scale panic. That is the only way to describe how the media and liberal anti-gun politicians reacted to the then new GLOCK pistol back in the mid-1980s. “People will be armed! And we won’t know about it!” they cried. “This gun is undetectable,” they claimed. This gun would mean an end to government controls, […]

Guns and Ammo, Supply and Demand (and why price gouging is good)


No one likes to overpay for something or feel like they are being taken advantage of. Right now the prices of guns and ammunition have doubled and tripled, driven entirely by panic buying. In some places there may be good reason to panic. Several states including Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey, California, Illinois, New York, […]
