Just what do they mean by a ‘school shooting’?

Monday, August 4th, 2014

I see where the Victim Disarmament gang have been up to their old tricks, caught red-handed ginning up bogus statistics to try and convince low-information voters that America’s government schools are now little more than shooting galleries. (“But if only we could ban the guns!” they cry, ignoring the curious shortage of attacks on police […]

‘I’m so mad I just want to spit’

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

My friend Ed was a United States Marine. Some would say he was an “ex-Marine,” but I’m not sure these guys are ever “ex-” Marines. Ed lived in Connecticut. It’s my birthplace, but a state I left long ago. If I needed to be reminded why, my recent conversation with Ed’s widow would have done […]

Applause lines and other nonsense

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Among scores of other promises, some more and some less likely than walking on water, Barack Obama devoted a paragraph in his recent State of the Union address to the age-old Democratic promise of more gun control — vowing he’ll proceed even without the cooperation of Congress. “I intend to keep trying, with or without […]

Gun grabbers continue to shoot themselves in foot

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

Over the objections of a majority of Colorado’s chief law enforcement officers, Democrats pushed three “gun control” bills through the state legislature last year, wringing their hands and ridiculing those who refused to “do something to protect the children” from mass shootings like those at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo. and an elementary school […]

Hey, it was just an innocent question

Monday, January 6th, 2014

The Brietbart Web site reported Dec. 5 that Barry Greenfield, an elected Selectman in Swampscott, Mass., “is pushing a measure to give police the authority to conduct home searches to check proper storage of firearms.” The site reports Greenfield said “State law requires Massachusetts gun owners to keep their firearms locked away or rendered inoperable.” […]

Reducing crime without more ‘gun control’

Friday, December 6th, 2013

By Vin Suprynowicz It’s the holiday season, when we’re reminded to give thanks. Indeed, we risk going into a tailspin if we concentrate only on our problems, without remembering to be thankful for health, for friends and loved ones, for living in a country where we can stand up for our liberties by speaking and […]

Those nasty guns still causing people to go crazy

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

I see where there have been a couple more “mass shootings,” leading not to questions about why so many black men seem to feel trapped, frustrated, and unneeded in the wonderful new multi-generational welfare state we like to call Obamaland, but rather to the usual recycled, croaking calls for more “gun control.” For the record, […]

Unintended Consequences

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

In the fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty’s father fails to follow the common-sense course — sending soldiers to arrest the evil fairy, warning her that if any harm comes to his daughter through that malevolent curse concerning sewing needles, said fairy would have her wings plucked and find herself locked up in a dark place for […]

Attack ‘Stand Your Ground’, turn out the black vote

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

So now a unanimous citizen jury has agreed with Sanford, Fla. police chief Bill Lee (fired for resisting political lynch mobs and refusing to file baseless charges — http://tinyurl.com/l5bch6w) and the state prosecutor who first investigated neighborhood watch coordinator George Zimmerman’s fatal 2012 shooting of black teen-ager Trayvon Martin. The jury listened to the eye-witness, […]

Who’s too crazy to own a gun?

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

I see where retired astronaut Mark Kelly and his wife, brain-damaged former Arizona Congresscritter Gabrielle Giffords, are criss-crossing the country, traveling with an extended staff “resembling that of a political campaign” in private planes and helicopters, trying to stir up state-by-state support for more laws designed to make it harder for law-abiding Americans to buy […]
