When you modify the text of the original report, and replace all the anti-gun references with the words ‘Birth Control‘ you  get a different sort of response from the liberal left.  (Not to worry.  They wont suddenly begin to empathise with gun owners.)   (Read the original here) A draconian (birth control) bill set to […]

When an anti-gun person says it is not about a total gun ban, remember this:

by Skip June 5, 2014

Moms Demand Action forced Jack In The Box to be a gun-free zone.

by Skip May 19, 2014

The wholly owned creature of former NYC Mayor Bloomberg, Moms Demand Action, is an organization whose intent is to rid guns from lawful Americans by any means possible.  One of their “victories” of creating yet another gun free zone, Jack In The Box restaurants, has kind of backfired on them.

So what is Mayor Bloomberg getting for his $50 million anti-gun campaigns?

by Skip April 21, 2014

You know, you just can’t make this up!  First he announces his new anti-gun umbrella organization, Everytown, and it immediately gets “repurposed” immediately on social media as Rick points out here.  One would think that for $50 Mil, somebody would have thought to secure that FB page (and at least the state level ones) and […]
