A rare political post that I’m throwing up because it touches upon an area I just finished writing about. Larry Correia takes the world’s dumbest tweet by a Congressman, and drops a hydrogen bomb of truth on it, and makes the rubble bounce. Last week a congressman embarrassed himself on Twitter. He got into a… Read More We Don’t Actually Want Another Civil War
Stop undermining the narrative! It appears that France suffered more deaths from mass shootings in 2015 alone – 508 – than the United States has suffered during the entire Obama administration – 424. According to John R. Lott, that is. Lott is a noted gun-rights advocate and a contributor to the Crime Prevention Research Center. The… Read More Mass Shootings Worse in Europe?
Amusing post at the Gun-Free Zone. Sure, he wants to send gun owners to Syria to defend America, but I doubt would want CCW permit holders to defend him or themselves in his local shopping mall. Disdain does not require logic.
Every time this happens, the gun controllers seize the commanding heights of moral authority. “Can we finally now do something to stop the violence?” They say. Can we finally pass “sensible,” “reasonable,” gun laws? How many more have to die? So they rush out to fill the void of knowledge with wishcasting and devil-chasing, because they know that… Read More Poor Gun Controllers: They Just Can’t Help Themselves
With the exception of an antique single-shot percussion-cap pistol inherited from my grandfather, for which I keep neither powder nor shot, I do not own any guns. My reason is twofold: 1) guns are expensive, and I lack the time to devote to their maintenance and the necessary training, and 2) Wifey doesn’t like them.… Read More Why I’m Calling Shenanigans on Ms. Magazine’s “My Month With a Gun” Column
This Awesome (picture for link): Go on, tell me again how sensible and obvious these rules and regulations are. Tell me how Leviathan has a special plan for my life! Oh, and don’t forget to let me know how different today is from the frontier days of the 19th century. You will be dead right… Read More How Awesome is Gun Control?
You can’t make these things up. Between 2003 and 2011, 4,265 people were murdered in the city of Chicago. In 2012 alone, 512 people were murdered in the city. Operation Enduring Freedom, the name for the war in Afghanistan, which started Oct. 7, 2001, has seen a total of 2,166 killed. The war has been… Read More Chicago Twice as Dangerous as Afghanistan
Over at Protein Wisdom, a former Marine and gun store owner speaks a few truths. Writes Jeff: Unfortunately, we’ve become expert, as a popular and political culture, at pretending we haven’t encountered those very truths we continue to molest — all in an effort to will new truths into being out of something so gossamer… Read More The Irrelevance of Conservative Despair
This is several days old, but since I greatly enjoyed David Mamet’s The Secret Knowledge: The Dismantling of American Culture (Have you not read it? You must), it would be remiss of me not to link his brilliant, hilarious essay for the Daily Beast, “Gun Laws and the Fools of Chelm.” It contains many useful arguments… Read More Gun Laws and Other Acts of Folly
Right now there’s apparently a White House Petition to get CNN jawflapper Piers Morgan deported to the that happy realm whence he came. Something to do with his flubbering commentary on Newton and the 2nd Amendment. I haven’t read it, and I certainly haven’t signed it. Because punishing idiotic speech is not what we do… Read More Piers Morgan, Freedom Fries, and Other Jokes That Progs Don’t Get
