Three “odd” statements regarding Free Society and guns; what part of “free” is so hard to understand?

by Skip May 3, 2016

OK, one by by reporting TV station and two by a politician who swears an oath to uphold the Constitution (reformatted, emphasis mine): A bill making its way through the Statehouse could put more guns on the streets of South Carolina. Rep. Wendell Gilliard said Friday he believes it’s a mistake to pass a bill […]

by Skip May 1, 2016

Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense? -Patrick (“Give me Liberty or give me Death”) Henry   Apparently, lots of Progressives/Communists (not much difference) here in NH believe so.  Isn’t that right, NH State Rep Katherine Rogers?

No Longer Hiding It, Hillary to Come After Guns

by Scott Morales April 22, 2016

They’re not hiding it anymore. Hillary Clinton will come after your guns if she elected. It’s not a hyperbolic scare tactic; it’s a promise. With Antonin Scalia no longer on the Supreme Court, they smell the stench of an anti-constitutional opportunity and they’re going to seize it, taking to it like a pig to a […]

Thumbnail image for The Dupont Group’s Client List

Long story short, a “Republican-owned” lobbying group is pushing Emperor Bloomberg’s gun control agenda in the NH Legislature. If that’s how they want to roll, so be it. It’s their business. But their business is now our business because they are actively lobbying our representatives to advance an anti-liberty pro-gressive agenda. In light of this […]

Notable Quote – Marko Kloo

by Skip April 5, 2016

…When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force. The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a […]

Good guy with a gun – concealed carrier stops attempted burglar – on TV!

by Skip April 4, 2016

Sorry, Bloomberg, but there ARE a lot of times where a good guy with a gun does make a positive impact even if a shot is never fired.  In fact, that is the majority of the time – no trigger is ever pulled.  And this one, where it looks like someone was about to break […]

by Skip April 2, 2016

Heh! (reformatted, emphasis mine)! An armed citizen cornered armed robbers and told them, “My gun is bigger than yours.” According to Cleveland.com, police say two armed suspects, a 19-year-old Parma man and an 18-year-old Cleveland man, entered Suleyman’s Supermarket on Cleveland’s West Side just before 10 p.m. and demanded money.  The store owner gave the suspects around […]

At present, some Buford T. Justice can refuse to give you a New Hampshire pistol revolver license if, for example, you opposed their budget increase at a town meeting, testified against civil asset forfeiture, or spoke out about this or that or whatever. They won’t say that is why, they’ll just decide you are not […]

Blogline of the Day – yep, we’re a monotonous bunch

by Skip March 2, 2016

From the beginning, this vandalism and arson incident has seemed… odd. Open carry supporters are sometimes acerbic, and sometimes get arrested in incidents of civil disobedience, but with one notable exception, they are typically monotonously law-abiding. Actually, living here in NH, open carry is no big deal – if you can own a firearm, you […]

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 […]

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, […]

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

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 […]

“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, […]
