by Steve MacDonald September 23, 2018

“One of the ordinary modes by which tyrants accomplish their purposes without resistance is by disarming the people and making it an offense to keep arms… The friends of a free government cannot be too watchful to overcome the dangerous tendency of the public mind to sacrifice for the sake of mere private convenience this powerful check […]

The Kavanaugh Compromise

by Ian Underwood September 5, 2018

Recent discussions regarding the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court seem to have centered largely around two issues:  guns and abortion.

“the unique mayhem that gun violence afflicts upon this nation.”

by Steve MacDonald April 29, 2018

In 2009 president Obama framed -gun violence in America as unique. That’s a liberal talking point to advance a gun-grabbing agenda meant to give the federal government a force-majority over its people. But taken out of that context it is true. Gun violence accounts for only a fraction of all violence in the United States. […]

Alyssa Milano and Pretend To Do Some Good

by Steve MacDonald April 26, 2018

The NRA does not represent all gun owners. In fact, it can’t lay claim to more than a fraction of them. But it makes an excellent Alinsky-esqe target the left can try to isolate. Having said that, the effort continues apace. Which means MoveOn is fundraising off it and some has-been actress named Alyssa Milano is […]

by Peter Lemiska March 4, 2018

The whole country is still mourning the loss of young lives at the hands of another mass murderer and feels only the most profound compassion for the survivors.

Democrats are So Stupid That They’d Demand the Guy They Compare to Hitler Ban Guns

by Steve MacDonald March 3, 2018

Unless you’ve been living under a huge rock, you are familiar with the Left’s opinion of Mr. Trump. He’s Hilter, a tyrant, a racist, unstable, he is going to start a nuclear war. This narrative has continued non-stop since the election, and probably the nomination. Trump is a Nazi. Just google Trump Hitler. Web links. Images. […]

by Peter Lemiska February 26, 2018

It was American author Frank Herbert who once wrote, “Reason is the first victim of strong emotion.” In the aftermath of the massacre in Parkland, Florida, the survivors and those traumatized by the killings, directly or indirectly, could not be expected to objectively and rationally debate the issue of guns in America. Yet it was […]

AG: NH School Gun Bans Unlawful

by Steve MacDonald February 3, 2018

This is a curious debate to me. The issue is whether local officials and more specifically local school officials can establish rules (in this case prohibiting firearms on school grounds) where the State Law does not grant them such authority. The obvious answer should be no.
