Thoughts on the Tree of Life Synagogue mass murder

Once again, I'm forcibly reminded that there's people who want to kill me, simply because of my religion. On Saturday, Pittsburgh experienced the worst mass murder against Jewish people in the history of the United States: 11 people were killed and several more were wounded.  The murderer was a virulently antisemitic & racist psychopath, who … Continue reading Thoughts on the Tree of Life Synagogue mass murder

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

I've seen "The NRA is RACIST!!!" claimed over and over again, often using the death of Philando Castile as if it is "proof" of this claim.  The people making this argument do so without knowledge of gun control laws or the full facts behind this case. The Philando Castile shooting - Background: On July 6, … Continue reading Philando Castile’s death has nothing to do with the NRA, and no it is not “proof” they are “racist.”

Louisville’s Tim Faulkner Gallery shooting and a complete lack of outrage.

If a "mass shooting" occurs, and no talking heads are angry about it, will people make a sound?  The answer is: no. This weekend, there was a concert event at the Tim Faulkner Gallery, located in Louisville's West End - specifically in Portland.  For those who aren't familiar with the venue, Tim Faulkner's is a … Continue reading Louisville’s Tim Faulkner Gallery shooting and a complete lack of outrage.

President Obama lies to the nation while shedding crocodile tears, then compares gun control to civil rights. Shameful.

This afternoon, President Obama showed a stunning display of dishonesty, idiocy, and emotional blackmail during a press conference covering his executive orders on gun control.  Here's a transcript of his remarks: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2016/01/05/transcript-president-obamas-remarks-on-gun-violence/ President Obama started with a statement about the shooting of Gabby Giffords, and That’s why we’re here today.

The so called “terrorist loophole” or how the Left admitted they hate due process

In the wake of the Paris attacks, Harry Reid and his buddies have decided that they just can't let this opportunity slide by - they want to eliminate the so called "terrorist loophole" on firearms: “Republicans care more about kowtowing to the NRA than preventing terrorists from legally buying assault rifles and explosives like the … Continue reading The so called “terrorist loophole” or how the Left admitted they hate due process

In the wake of fully automatic weapons and bombs used in Paris, the EU response is more gun control. Democrats seize the opportunity as well. Seriously?

I can't make this up. Despite the fact that the attackers used fully automatic AK-47 rifles and had suicide vests loaded with TATP explosive, both of which are banned outright, the EU response to this has apparently been that more gun control is needed. A normal person would go "Hey, these are guns that nobody can … Continue reading In the wake of fully automatic weapons and bombs used in Paris, the EU response is more gun control.

What can be done to stop mass shootings & gun crime? I’m ever so glad you asked.

With another mass shooting making headlines, the antigun extremists are out in force, from the President stating he would like Australian style gun control (and the firearms bans & confiscations that go with it), columnists not even bothering to hide that they want confiscation, to the slacktivists sharing facebook memes. Here's the thing, though.  When they are … Continue reading What can be done to stop mass shootings & gun crime? I’m ever so glad you asked.

It’s been an “interesting” time lately. Are we seeing the beginning of a full court press?

If you've ever heard the phrase "May you live in interesting times" then you understand why it seems so apropos these days. In the past 6 weeks we've seen a number of highly publicized mass shootings in addition to the usual gang related violence that is reported, then ignored by everyone. June On June 17, … Continue reading It’s been an “interesting” time lately. Are we seeing the beginning of a full court press?

WSJ Calls out Administration on false mass shooting report: Obama’s Gun-Control Misfire Before the 2014 election, the FBI claimed that mass shootings were up. False.

Last year, the FBI released a report about active shooters that was seized upon by the antigun faithful and twisted into a screed about mass shootings.  Last week, it turned out that the information was not only wrong, but massaged.  Yeserday, the WSJ showed a rare moment of honesty and reported on it: Last September the Obama … Continue reading WSJ Calls out Administration on false mass shooting report: Obama’s Gun-Control Misfire Before the 2014 election, the FBI claimed that mass shootings were up. False.
