Boulder, CO, Outlaws AR15s And More

Government interference and progressive policy have suffered a massive blow in the wake of the Parkland shooting. What’s the government’s go-to response? Fix background checks, and they’ve already got the bill. The Republican Fix NICS bill (supported by Schumer and Feinstein) will (among other unconscionable things) empower any federal agency in the executive branch to prohibit you […]

Data Point – Americans, more and more, hate the idea of “assault weapon” bans

by Skip October 27, 2016

First, let me say again that there is no such there as an “assault weapon” – it’s a made up term used for political purposes by the Left (aka, the Civilian Disarmament clique) simply to call semi-automatic rifles (frankly, I like the phrase “modern muskets” as being more in line of what they are).  No […]

Assault Weapons – Chuck Woolery’s thoughts

by Skip December 28, 2012

Chuck has another video out – this time his take on why he needs his assault weapon.  After all, “…to blame assault weapons for these tragedies would be like blaming airplanes for the 9/11 attacks.  The problem lies with the perpetrator and not the tools used to commit the crime” “Our Founding Fathers wanted every […]

I think it is appropriate to add this picture (right) to Susan Olsen’s post.  The one with the ‘Journalist’s Guide To Firearm’s Identification.’ This is my refrigerator door.  It was modified by the manufacturer to accommodate an extra magazine capable of holding all manner of ‘lethal’ ordinance.  Soda.  Beer.  Water, in those earth destroying plastic […]

We can always count on James Veverka (on 12/19/2012 in the Laconia Daily Sun, to respond irrationally (hopefully he doesn’t have a gun), and suppress some, and misstate other, facts. First.

Sober Talk From New Hampshire Democrats on Assault Weapons?

by Steve MacDonald December 20, 2012
