by Steve MacDonald February 11, 2016

A few days before Gov. Christie was driven out of the race by New Hampshire voters we had a conversation with Alex Roubian from the New Jersey Second Amendment Society about how the N.J.

Christie’s Evasions On Guns And Medicaid

by Mike January 18, 2016

What good is gravitas without honesty? First Guns – if you’ve met Christie on the campaign trial, or if you’ve seen him in the debates, you’ll have heard questions about the draconian gun laws in NJ, and you’ll have heard some variation on the themes of the out-of-staters he’s pardoned and how he’s made it […]

Rush: Obama’s gun Executive Orders will not stop:

by Skip January 12, 2016

Emphasis mine: “Obama stressed the need for executive gun control as a way to lessen “mass violence” in America, and he coupled the emphasis on “mass violence” with a need to expand background checks–as if doing the latter will reduce the former. But Limbaugh was not fooled, and he pointed out five things Obama’s gun controls […]

Guest post by Radical Moderate: The ugly face of New Hampshire Progressivism

by Skip January 11, 2016

“The NH Progressive has the unique habit of cursing New Hampshire while they enjoy the quality of life directly attributable to its population and culture.” Recently I happened upon a delightful opinion piece in one of the local daily papers that epitomizes the mindset of that particular virulent form of Leftist called the ‘New Hampshire […]

If the VA Gov thinks his subjects should not have guns, why should those around him?

by Skip December 28, 2015

That would be former DNC Chair, Clintonista bundler and current Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) who ran on putting in place severe gun control and restrictions.  Well, he did get elected but the Republican Legislature denied him that action but did do some Executive Orders a la “Obama’s pen and phone”.  So, in a pique, […]

Admitted: none of Obama’s gun control policies would accomplish anything. Then why?

by Skip December 21, 2015

I really do wonder what kind of woodshed is brought for the Presidential “Responsible for being the stand-in for Baghdad Bob” flacker (that would be Josh Earnest, the most badly named Prez Press Sec evah!) actually tells the truth about Obama’s all encompassing need to disarm civilians – and admits NONE of them would do anything?

Good question – go ahead gun grabbers, what’s your answer?

by Skip December 20, 2015

If advocates of stricter gun-control regulations are correct that easier access to hand guns necessarily leads to more violence committed with guns, why do we never hear of mass shootings (of people) at firing ranges? Yes, there was the killing of Chris Kyle at a gun range.  That admitted, this question speaks to the normal operations […]

Disarmament

by Skip December 20, 2015

“Fear a Government that fears your guns“ It is clear that after the Democrat Presidential Primary Debate last night, the Democrats trying to be Numero Uno fear an armed populace.  Pretty much, I can’t think of a Socialist Government that ever has. When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, […]

WSJ | How does a man who entered the White House vowing to restore science to its proper place tell us that gun control is the answer to terrorism? After all, California already has strict gun control, as does France, which just had its second terrorist massacre this year. Not to mention that the one […]

If anything were to prove Obama’s deep ideological bias and hatred towards the American right to self-defense via the Second Amendment, it was last night when he tried conflating Islamic Jihad terrorist (and the risible lessening of such there of) by a citizen’s decreased right to own and bear arms by the use of a purely […]

Faux Filer – Ben Carson

by Tom November 20, 2015

Ben Carson lost me a long time ago, when he made this blunder of a statement in 2013 on the Glenn Beck program.  Today, he’s doubling down. Essentially, he used his lack of “political experience” to explain why he thought people in urban/populated areas should be prohibited from having semi-automatic weapons – but not people in […]
