by Skip September 13, 2014

From a post I did back in 2010: “How a politician stands on the Second Amendment tells you how he or she views you as an individual… as a trustworthy and productive citizen, or as part of an unruly crowd that needs to be lorded over, controlled, supervised, and taken care of.” – Suzanna Gratia-Hupp […]

Your average, so-called, “anti-gun-violence” liberal Democrat wants your town, city, or state, to have the same sort of gun laws they have in Chicago.  But they don’t want you to truly grasp what that means.  Every weekend there are reports the dozens of new shootings and mounting death toll in the gun-free land of Chicago.  […]

When the only people with weapons are the bad guys, at that point, what difference does a high capacity magazine ban make?  None. AWR Hawkins On June 4, the Los Angeles Times reported that Elliot Rodger fired more than 50 rounds of ammunition while killing three people with a gun, even though he was only […]

Warner Todd Huston (Breitbart.com) joins us to explore the finer details of a post he wrote about concealed carry:  “.. if you are a concealed carry holder you should ignore these attempts to curtail your rights. If you are legally armed, feel absolutely free to enter and patronize those stores with your firearm no matter […]

The Brookline Democrats made local news at the end of April when they tweeted a meme and suggested that because of a shooting at a Fed Ex facility in Kennesaw, Georgia, another NRA/GOP talking point had been busted. Kennesaw requires all adults to own a firearm, but the shooting occurred at the FedEx facility, one […]

The moment I heard about the most recent Fort Hood shooting my first though after the thoughts and prayers for the families, friends, and the dead or wounded was — Another shooter takes advantage of a Democrat gun free zone. Kimberly Morin at Examiner.com describes the problem for me… Gun Free Zones’ are magnets for […]

David Hart inspired my letter to Senator Ayotte

by Don April 17, 2013

Dear Senator Ayotte, My letter is inspired by David B. Hart’s letter to you in Friday‘s (April 12, 2013) The Citizen of Laconia. Apparently thinking you were unaware, Hart told you that the Senate will soon consider “common sense limitations on gun violence“, which he apparently thinks would have avoided the Newtown massacre. The Newtown […]

Liberal Policies have caused enough Deaths

by Don April 9, 2013

How many more innocent lives are Progressives/Liberals/Democrats willing to sacrifice to further their political goals of controlling people and making them dependent on government? While Democrat gun control proposals in Washington and Concord wouldn’t have stopped the Newtown massacre, they would make it more difficult for law abiding citizens to defend themselves from assault, rape, […]

Senator Feinstein to the Rescue, She Found the Problem!!!

by Don March 13, 2013

After years of study Senator Feinstein has identified the real cause of mass killings.  Quoting Senator Feinstein,“It’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines.” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieHhIqxR7kY) Apparently all we need is a law saying it is no longer legal to hunt (kill) humans using a large capacity magazine.  You can probably get bi-partisan […]

Progressives: giving breaks to the lawless, declaring the guilt of the lawful

by Skip March 9, 2013

Hmmm.  When I first saw this, I went “yup”!  A warning to the lawless, the criminal class: “Now, now children, you need to behave.  Please follow the rules, please obey the law.  After all, it’s for the children.’  That seems to be the message – a slap on the wrist AND the expectation that it […]

Response to Nancy Parsons Questions about Objections to Obama’s Gun Control Policies

by Don January 23, 2013

Perhaps other people wonder about the questions in Nancy Parson’s letter of January 18, 2013 in the Laconia Daily Sun.  (See:  http://issuu.com/dailysun/docs/lds1-18-13 ) My beliefs are based on the following: True safety requires consideration of reality not wishes. If anyone is hurt during a crime, it should be the criminal not the intended victim.  Criminals will ignore […]

Politicians like Obama help Murderers at Schools like Newtown

by Don January 16, 2013

Why are killers at public schools like Newtown able to kill so many people?  They didn’t use military grade assault or automatic weapons.  Few or none used large capacity magazines.  They killed so many people because they had lots of time to shoot lots of bullets. They had so much time because politicians made schools […]

Do Something that Actually Dissuades and Stops Killers

by Don December 21, 2012

I am sympathetic with Ben Fordham’s call, in his 12/19 letter to the editor of The Citizen of Laconia (www.citizen.com), to “DO something“. We should do something that works. What we have been doing fails because it has been based on fantasy, not realism. We have established “gun free zones” to protect children and others, […]
