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 […]

Andrew Hemingway 2A Rally – Interview with new shooters

by Skip August 24, 2014

Back to last Saturday – Andrew Hemingway’s Second Amendment rally at the Londonderry Fish & Game Club (yes, I am running behind).  Yes, Andrew did shoot – full auto AK-47.  Sure, he was the main dude at the event, but I do have to say that this video does capture the muzzle flash rather well! […]

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 […]

Andrew Hemingway 2A Rally – Interview with new shooters

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 […]

After Walt Havenstein gave his talk to the Belknap County Republicans, he was willing to participate in a Question and Answer session.  A few were hard questions, some not as hard.

This is what the CEO of Target would have preferred to have been able to say

by Skip July 3, 2014

Moms Demand Action, the Astro-turf group funded by former NYC Mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg (Wait!  I thought US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that the Democrats didn’t “have” any billionaires??) has been going around to commercial entities like Starbucks, Chili’s, Lowe’s, Home Depot – you get the idea.  Because they and their fellow “disarm […]

Anatomy Of The Gun Ban

by Rick Olson June 29, 2014

 “A woman who demands further gun control legislation is like a chicken who roots for Colonel Sanders.” —Larry Elder There is never a time when gun-banning liberals cease to work to completely and totally remove firearms from our society…That is, to completely remove from law-abiding citizens the right to have and own firearms.

Dana Loesch has a book coming out in October – “Hands off my Gun.” “Gun control is the ultimate war on women. Firearms are the equalizer between the sexes. Sam Colt made us equal, indeed. This book explores that, the racist roots of gun control, and debunks the biggest arguments made by anti-gun extremists. The […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

I’ve got Georgia on my mind… House Bill 60, also known as the Safe Carry Protection Act, will allow licensed gun owners to carry their firearms into public places, including bars, nightclubs, schools, churches and government buildings. “People who follow the rules can protect themselves and their families from people who don’t follow the rules,” […]

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.
