Congratulations Scotland

If there were any doubt before, you are certainly now officially bought and paid for. When presented with an opportunity to peacefully reject statist dependency, a clear majority of Scotland’s voters chose Thursday to remain a kept populace (largely at others’ expense, of course).

Shocking Coverage of Defensive Firearm Use

It is highly unusual for a so-called “mainstream media” outlet to cover a story involving successful defensive firearm(s) use, but today at least ABC covered this news as a potential victim became a probable lifesaver as events unfolded.
