Another Doctor for “Gunsense” giving bad medical advice

I came across a couple tweets this morning that really astounded me: https://twitter.com/DocTran2018/status/990658104319606784 This is bad.  REALLY bad, because Tran is an actual medical doctor, and she's dispensing advice that is not only counterfactual, but will cause harm to people.

Philando Castile’s death has nothing to do with the NRA, and no it is not “proof” they are “racist.”

Antigun Dishonesty: Banning “Weapons of War” and what that really means

Every so often the antigun zealots let their mask slip and reveal their true intentions, and the recent tactic of calling ordinary semiautomatic rifles "Weapons of War" is what we will talk about today.

Let’s talk about silencers & how the “gun safety” movement is a lie.

Silencers are in the news, with all manner of breathless fear mongering coming from various outlets.  Why? The Sportsmen's Heritage  Recreational and Enhancement Act of 2017 (SHARE) passed through committee (on a straight party-line vote, naturally) and has been forwarded to the House of Representatives.  Attached to it is the Hearing Protection Act, which (if successful) will …

NY DA doesn’t want CCW reciprocity… because ISIS. For real?

CNN took a break from being complete garbage to allow  New York District Attorney Vance a chance at bat: Manhattan DA: This bill could turn your city into the Wild West Blood will RUN in the STREETS!!!!  Where have we heard that before? Oh yeah, every single anti-gun argument since CCW reform began in the …
