Second Amendment

Bill Whittle: a true definition of the 2nd Amendment (better than Progressives’ simplistic “guns kill!”)

by Skip October 25, 2014

That’s what we hear from Progressives – guns kill!  Thus, no one should have them.  Or “reasonable gun laws” (better translated “reasonable is what we say it is, which is no one should have them”).  No matter what you hear from the anti-Constitutional Progressives, Liberals, Socialists, Pacifists, and those that emote and not think, the […]

I can tell you, Drew Cline, why Republicans are unloaded and silent about guns and speech

by Skip October 23, 2014

From the Op-Ed that Drew Cline wrote over at the UL about the Republican reluctance to go after Dems lack of support on the Constutition: …It is a little surprising that Democrats have dropped the issue, given that they are using so many other distractions to avoid talking about President Obama, and that certain gun control […]

Robert Forsythe is running for the New Hampshire House, and this is a segment the Democrat trackers should love. Pro second amendment- he wants to start a gun safety, hunter safety class in public Junior High or High Schools, and he explains why.  And why every firearm owner should open carry.  We touch on right […]

Womens Defense League of NH: on Gabby Gifford’s Americans for Responsible Solutions not inclusive to all NH women

by Skip October 15, 2014

That would be that hack group that has been unethically (IMHO) attacking another woman, Republican Marilinda Garcia running for US Congress in NH’s CD-2 on all kinds of topics in absolutely execrable fashions (proving that Democrats only care about women that might vote for them but CERTAINLY not those running against them – hypocrites!).  Thus, […]

A WTF moment – can this Anti Gunner pen a worse Gun Control Op-Ed more devoid of actual facts?

Liberals? I have a deal for you!

Mayor Bloomburg (he of his spending for the astroturf groups of Mayors Against Illegal Guns (which was outed to show they were against ALL guns), Everytown (ditto), and Moms Demand Action (ditto squared) as well as Gabby Giffords (whose Responsible Solutions group is just plain nasty in their ads against Marilinda Garcia), here’s the deal: […]

Billionaire Paul Allen spends 100s of thousands to take your guns away – but he can buy a military tank???

by Skip September 18, 2014

Why is it that many of these anti-Freedom / anti-Constitutional moneybags think that what is good for we all is irrelevant for them?  That which they would prevent us from doing or having has nothing to do with their ability TO do or TO have?  That according to Peter Allen, co-founder of Microsoft and mega-billionaire, I […]

Read carefully and slowly One year ago, our dedicated military and civilian personnel at the Washington Navy Yard were targeted in an unspeakable act of violence that took the lives of 12 American patriots. As we remember men and women taken from us so senselessly, we keep close their family and friends, stand with the […]

Moms Demand Action – making women more helpless, nationwide (the Panera Bread edition)

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 […]

“Gary Lambert is no friend of law abiding gun owners…”

by Susan Olsen September 6, 2014

From the New Hamsphire Firearms Coalition early this morning: Dear NHFC Members and Friends, When the NHFC grades politicians, there will inevitably be those who, like Former State Senator Gary Lambert, will try to obscure their anti-gun record.  I want to set the record straight, and tell you directly why we believe Former Senator Lambert is no […]

Lethality is what it is, not in how it looks.

by Skip August 25, 2014

Target shooting, hunting, self-defense, military – it made no difference then and makes no difference now.  It is not the technology but the recognition of human nature is that some always wish to dominate others (“including their own government“); firearms are a way of voting no.  People are the “scary parts” – not lumps of […]

Open Carry – I did smile when I read this

by Skip August 24, 2014

From Bearing Arms comes this story (go there to watch the video): Open carry has been getting tons of bad press over the past year or so, largely thanks to long gun open carry activists in Texas who have no idea how to successfully wage a public relations campaign. [Actually, they are idiots in some cases  […]

Notable Quote – George Washington “… including their own government. “

by Skip August 24, 2014

No less than “the Father of our Country” states that the American people have the Right to the arms to defend themselves against tyranny – including their own government.  As a law abiding citizen, why should I (if I could afford it) own my own F-22?  Many of the Left scoff and dismiss this idea […]

by Skip August 21, 2014

During last Saturday’s Andrew Hemingway 2A Rally, a group of new (and one “returning”) shooters decided to attend – just a group of guys that wanted to do something that they had never done before (or a long, long time ago).  Grokster Susan had done some safety / coaching with them at the Londonderry Fish & […]

Hemingway 2A Rally – what’s a 2nd Amendment rally w/out some machine gun shooting!

by Skip August 21, 2014

Being really under the weather on Sat means I didn’t get as much video as I should have – and certainly not enough of the automatic firearms. Two of the popular ones were the “Ma Deuce” (.50 cal. heavy machine gun – the Youngest’s favorite weapon while deployed to Afghanistan) and the 1919 (.30 cal machi1ne […]

Scott Brown’s Specious NRA Rating

by Rick Olson August 14, 2014

“People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war or before an election.”   —Otto von Bismarck And not too long ago, after this video was made, Scott Brown went to Rindge New Hampshire and made that same bold statement. It would appear that wherever he goes, he will continue with that […]

This almost happened to me….

by Skip August 9, 2014

I live in a more rural area in Central NH – certainly not a city or “in town” that isn’t quite what I would call “suburban” and we get fairly few strangers out here – and one day, the dogs started barking up a storm.  A rather burly young guy was coming up our pathway; […]

Notable Quote – Gregg Gutfield, on Feminism

by Skip August 9, 2014

“The fact is, guns do more for female empowerment than modern feminism which prefers government as their protector. But legal ownership gives you real power, equalizing the battle between you and evil. Ask any girl: The confidence from learning to shoot a pistol is far superior to any gender studies course, and a stalker is […]

And herein is why I hate the dumb idea of so-called smart guns

by Skip August 5, 2014

I really don’t care for the arguments that those that wish to neuter the Second Amendment with a Trojan Horse: The only “smart gun” that exists in even a semi-viable form is the $1,800 iP1/iW1 Armatix combination. It is an electronically neutered 10-shot semi-automatic pistol in .22LR mated to a bulky watch. For the system […]

Anatomy Of The Gun Ban

by Rick Olson June 29, 2014
