I am here in Concord to both record and to testify on HB 564 (“relative to possession of firearms in safe school zones.”).  It’s not a good bill – one that I would suggest is a nuisance bill that just makes it harder for law abiding gun owners to exercise their Second Amendment and Article …

DISQUS Doodlings: So, the City of Toledo has declared that Lake Erie has “rights”?

I first saw this over at, naturally, Treehugger where all kinds of “just shake your head at it” stuff comes up. I predict this is going to be an awful thing and the only thing that will have “Rights” in the end will be the Lawyer Class (reformatted, emphasis mine): A triumphant win for Toledo residents …

The dumbest argument in politics?

Now that a ‘red flag’ law (more precisely a ‘suspension of due process for gun owners’  law, although that would telegraph its intent too clearly) is being considered, it means we’re going to hear the following specious argument raised in its defense:  ‘Rights are not unlimited.

I’ll never cancel MY Professorial office hours for such a scaredycat reason

Appellate Court Slaps Down University for “cavalier attitude toward petitioner’s due process rights”

My interest in this decision is two-fold. First, no small amount of effort has been expended on these pages to highlight the abuse of rights on college campuses or the culture that facilitates it. Second, I attended the University of Buffalo, which was just dope-slapped by a New York State Appellate Court for its banana-republic-like judgment against …

New Hampshire Democrats Oppose ‘Common Sense’ Gun Legislation.

The New Hampshire House voted 184-146 to advance Senate Bill 500, housekeeping legislation meant to clean up the language in firearms statutes in the GraniteState. Unlike the State Senate where approval was unanimous SB500 did not garner overwhelming bipartisan support in the NH House. In fact, it received very little support from House Democrats with …

Whose rights are they

Natural rights. What are they? How do you know what they are? Where do they come from? Whose rights are they and what is governments role with regard to them?  

Treaties, Irony, and Gun Rights – Oh My!

When second or third world Muslim Freedom fighters want to overthrow a controlling oppressive government, the Obama administration is Johnny-on-the-spot with…well…guns; other peoples money for guns or training in the use of guns, or some such thing.  But when American citizens want to exercise their second amendment right to lawful gun ownership (at their own …
