Hey Democrats! We Need You to Get Your Act Together! (Repost)

Stumbled across this today and it is an interesting take on this most recent electoral cycle from a presumably left-libertarian.  As posted by Eric Raymond on Armed and Dangerous (all emphases and links in original): It’s now just a bit over a month since Election Day, and I’m starting to be seriously concerned about the […]

The DoD Finally Recognizes the Absurdity of “Gun-Free Zones”

In an interesting pre-Trump move, the Department of Defense (DoD) has notionally rescinded the so-called “gun-free zone” restrictions for military installations which have effectively, and ironically, made them soft targets in the recent past. Many pro-Second Amendment groups and individuals have called on the president-elect to take such a policy action upon assuming office in […]

Dear Hillary Clinton: “No Fly, No Buy” is Equally Illegal as “Stop-and-Frisk”

During the first 2016 presidential debate a couple of weeks ago, Hillary Clinton chastised Donald Trump on the unconstitutionality of so-called “stop-and-frisk” policies of urban policing (specifically in New York City).  And credit where it is due, she is right – warrantless, unprompted searches conducted upon pedestrians simply because they are in “public” clearly violates […]

I Am a “Verbiage Nazi”

This is similar to a grammar Nazi, except in this case applied to the context of firearms-related discussions about their design, functions, and their use.  This form of linguistic prescription focuses more on the technical verbiage and its accurate employment.  I wish I did not have to resort to this tedious, and I have been […]

Another American Citizen Killed By an Agent of the State

This time in Louisiana.  Question for all the anti-gun types out there that are tired of the annual killings  ongoing by police in this country (now up to 505 at the time of this writing for 2016 already, more than double the deaths resulting from mass shootings this year by at least one accounting):  are […]
