Notable Quote – James Madison

by Skip December 17, 2017

Here is Madison’s first draft of the Second Amendment: “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, a well-armed and well-regulated militia being the best security of a free country; but no person religiously scrupulous of bearing arms shall be compelled to render military service in person.” Hmm, perhaps the […]

Blogline of the Day – Either you accept ALL of the Constitution or none of it

by Skip December 17, 2017

And so on — ignoring the fact that the same progressives who’ve got their knickers in a twist about national concealed carry reciprocity fully support the Supreme Court decision forcing all 50 states to recognize gay marriage. Not to mention ignoring the Supreme Court’s McDonald decision “incorporating” the Second Amendment (ruling that the protection trumps local and state law). Anyway, here comes […]

A Good Guy with a Gun stops two stupid bad guys

by Skip December 10, 2017

Reformatted, emphasis mine: An 84-year-old Korean War veteran killed a home intruder Friday with a single shot right to the chest, and he’s crediting God with his success. Two robbers tried to break into Korean War veteran Don Lutz’s home early on Friday morning in Lawrence County, Penn., but were quickly dissuaded by some serious […]

A good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun

by Skip December 5, 2017

Reformatted, emphasis mine: A 41-year-old pizza delivery driver from Imo’s told St. Louis police he was making food delivery when two men tried to rob him Thursday night, KTVI-TV reported. One of the suspects hit the driver in the head with a gun, the station said. When the victim ran back to his vehicle, KTVI said the […]

Alicia Neely Gets Her Job Back

by Ellen Kolb November 21, 2017

Update to Kimberly Morin’s October 31 post on the Grok: Alicia Neely has been reinstated to her job at the Sununu Youth Center. The formal announcement from Governor Sununu does not indicate if she’ll get back pay. See Morin’s October 25 post at New Hampshire Political Buzz for a summary of the case – the […]

A good guy with a gun; variant on “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition”?

by Skip November 19, 2017

To that latter phrase: When Pearl Harbor was hit in a surprise attack at dawn, in 1941, the scattered American forces were pinned down by the charging Japanese Zero planes. The legend says that during the attack one army chaplain was among the defenders who were returning small-arms and machine gun fire on the oncoming fighters. […]

Who says “no Progressive wants to confiscate your guns?” This one has made it clear

by Skip November 13, 2017

No, not US Senator Diane Feinstein (who famously said), “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States, for an outright ban, picking up [every gun]… … Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in. I would have done that.” This time, however, it is Progressive Boston Globe columnist David Scharfenberg who […]

The NFL really isn’t listening to itself, are they?

SHOT: San Francisco 49ers Pledge $500,000 to Push Suppressor Ban, Other Gun Control Measures The San Francisco 49ers pledged $500,000 Thursday to secure a suppressor ban and other gun controls. The push comes in the weeks after the Las Vegas attack. Suppressors were not used in that attack, but the 49ers are dedicated to banning the devices […]

“Trigger Warning” the LGBTQ Gun Club

by Scott Morales October 24, 2017

“Queer people are taking steps necessary to protect themselves…” Good! Don’t feel safe? Want to be able to defend yourself against those who wish to do you harm? That’s what the Second Amendment is for. Good for you. Welcome to the club. This LGBTQ gun club says its taking up arms in the name of […]

They only wanted to ban the bump stock, they said…..

by Skip October 21, 2017

Hardly.  They never stop at just one thing.  Once again, the Democrats in Congress aren’t just willing to go after just one aspect of their civilian disarmament jihad against the Second Amendment.  Here’s a couple more “aren’t going any furthers”: H.R.3984 – Rep. Schiff, Adam B. [D-CA-28] (Introduced 10/05/2017) Summary: To repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms […]

Former Bush Lawyer on guns: DO SOMETHING! POLICE NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE!

by Skip October 15, 2017

JUST DO SOMETHING! No, that is, in a lot of cases, the WRONG thing to do. The only knock that I have on Tucker Carlson as an interviewer is that he allows his guests to talk over him especially when they are refusing to answer a pointed question that they know will ruin their narrative.  […]

Have the Democrats thought through their civilian disarmament enough?

by Skip October 14, 2017

It would mean that only Government had the guns.  If the British redcoats HAD disarmed the Patriots at Lexington and Concord (like the Democrats want to do), would we even have a United States of America? Note to Democrats: ask yourselves this question. Would history repeat itself?  You keep saying that the US Military would […]

So are NH Democrats pistol-whipped on Abortion?

by Skip October 13, 2017

After all, there is no “middle ground”, NH State Senator Jeff Woodburn, on the part of Democrats on abortion is there?  Either an innocent unborn baby is alive – or it is dead.  Yet there is NO allowance by the Democrats for compromise on this issue – it is either full on on-demand abortion at […]

Never let a crisis go to waste – the Dems are FULL of gun control wishes since Las Vegas

by Skip October 11, 2017

Some didn’t even let the bodies cool – it is Progressive partisanship at its worst.  No time for actual reflection, no time for grief, and no “safe space” for the victims’ families.  Instead, even as the bodies were still on the ground, they went full political.  AWR Hawkins has the list: The Democrats cannot stop themselves […]

Epidemic of Guns?

by Rick Olson October 10, 2017

GET RID OF THOSE GUNS! The Epidemic of Guns is once again on the front burner in the Wake of the recent Las Vegas Tragedy. Epidemic…”Their words, NOT MINE. Late night talk show hosts are weighing in with various and sundry policy statements and rants. Listening to the Kool-Aid drinking cuck liberals, one would get […]

Yeah, and Zandra Rice-Hawkins was a sterling example of why we don’t “join their conversation” on guns

by Skip October 9, 2017

I’m going to watch it again, but it was class Rice-Crispies operandi – dripping with condescension and her favorite tactic of hijacking the conversation while someone else is talking (in this case, Susan Olsen representing the Women’s Defense League).  I have to give Susan kudos for the attempt, but it was clear that Zandra Rice-Hawkins […]

So Zandra-Rice Hawkins LIES about the end game of gun control – confiscation

by Skip October 8, 2017

Boy, does this segue well from my previous post about Progressives lying in “the means justifies the end”. I DVR’d WMUR’s CLOSEUP as I usually do and I know for a fact that the anti-gunners DO want a complete confiscation of any and all civilian firearms: “If I could have banned them all – ‘Mr. […]

So the Left wants to begin a “conversation” about guns, eh?

by Skip October 8, 2017

And on Obamacare. And on contraceptives. And on LGBT issues.  They must think we are stupid because the “conversation” has never really stopped – they NEVER keep yammering.  What they they mean by “conversating” is for us to SHUT UP and adopt their way of thinking as if we were soft cantalopes.  Not happening, as […]

Americans need to Cherish Life, Not Surrender their Rights

by Don October 8, 2017

Some wounded still hover between life and death.  The dead are not yet buried.  Americans mourn the dead and injured of the Las Vegas shootings.  We wonder how such an event could happen. And leftists do what they always do; use a crisis to try to take away the rights of the more than 318 […]

BlogHeadline of the Day – like clockwork, those that would sacrifice Freedom for temporary security

Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) Is A Small, Wormlike Bigot Terrified Of An Honest Debate On Guns He is one that would love to take away our guns as he is almost always the first to wave the bloody shirts of the victims (without first checking if they are dead yet).  He is one of those […]

Good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun

by Skip September 26, 2017

Yet another instance of what the Left claims never happens – those of us with concealed permits (or here in NH, a pistol / revolver license even though we have Constitutional Carry now) are mindful of the responsibilities it holds and that we have taken on voluntarily to protect ourselves, our families, our friends, and […]

Data Point – Civilian vs LEO arms

by Skip September 1, 2017

LEO -> Law Enforcement Officers.  This was amusing as well: “She found that with an estimated 270 million firearms owned by everyday Americans, civilians own 70 times more weapons than all police and military services combined.” When you see things like that, remember this from one of our Founding Fathers: Who are the militia? Are […]

Cool – another reason to give Progressives to not shop there!

by Skip July 29, 2017

Let’s face it, urban Progressive Elites hate the idea of Walmart – they hate the products, they hate the price, and of course, they hate the people that shop there.  That’s why they give Walmart such a hassle (if not outright rage) when it announces it wants to build somewhere near them.  Well, I think […]

It Looks Like Justice Gorsuch is Good On Gun Rights. Very Good.

by Steve MacDonald June 26, 2017

Before his nomination, there wasn’t much to go on when it came to Judge Gorsuch and guns, but that has changed. Eugene Volokh hints at the point here, We now have more evidence, from his vote joining Justice Clarence Thomas’s dissent from denial of certiorari in Peruta v. California — he, like Thomas (and, before his death, […]

Good Guy with a gun stops a bad guy – this time, it’s personal

by Skip June 10, 2017

People like NH State Rep Katherine Rogers don’t believe that phrase “Good guys with guns stop bad guys” should ever exist, is really just “fake news”, part of a mythology that has to be put down, and never misses an opportunity to advance the cause of killing off the Second Amendment and Article 2A here […]

Good guy with a gun stops bad guy from murdering more people

by Skip May 5, 2017

The anti-gun folks keep saying that there is no such thing as good guy with a gun that stops bad people.  I think that the people in this Texas restaurant would disagree: Police in Arlington, TX are praising the swift action of a concealed carry permit holder who stepped up to eliminate a threat in […]
