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

by Skip June 5, 2014

I pretty much think this guy wants to implement a gun ban and take them all away: “Instead of focusing on making it harder for the mentally ill to get guns, maybe we should be making it harder to get guns, period. Something to consider before the next mass shooting.” – Joe Nocera (H/T: The […]

Well, it’s Friday and once again WMUR Political Scoop has questions and lots of softballs were served up.  So I have answers…and in a couple of cases, I question the question or perceived observation: If you watched Marilinda Garcia, the national Latino rising star, on CNN en Español to check out her Spanish speaking skills… well […]

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. In fact, we can blame […]

And I am old enough to have seen Evil and experienced it.  First, there are those that only know naked force that they would use against me, my family, my friends, and my property: And then there are those that relish using naked political force, through the stroke of a pen, that can wreak even more […]

If a Federal Judge in Ohio can declare all in one….

by Skip April 25, 2014

If an Ohio based federal judge can mandate that all homosexual marriages licensed in other States must be recognized in Ohio (which does not recognize such), why shouldn’t my Second Amendment right, as practiced here in NH, right be recognized everywhere, too, before the Law?  Gotta hate judicial activism.

Notable Quote – Dr. Ben Carson

by Skip April 23, 2014

(emphasis mine) …The massive show of federal force in the Bundy case is frightening because it gives us a brief glimpse of the totalitarian regime that awaits a sleeping populace that does not take seriously its voting responsibilities, and places in public office (and returns them to office) who do not represent traditional American values.

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 […]

So, I took a little stroll down to Nashua City Hall today because I heard some moonbats were planning a little anti-gun protest. I arrived with some homemade handouts displaying some 2012 CDC data, proving how low gun violence actually is in this country, when compared to dangers such as Cancer and Heart Disease (combined, responsible […]
