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

Token Antigun Veteran: The NRA and its allies use jargon to bully gun-control supporters

Have you ever noticed that whenever an "air" of authority is needed, a token antigun veteran or gun owner is trotted out to promote whatever antigun tactic is going to be used to try to silence the people protesting their rights being taken away? Adam Weinstein is just one example.   Before we get to the … Continue reading Token Antigun Veteran: The NRA and its allies use jargon to bully gun-control supporters

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

Another head scratcher from the Washington Post: “How to protect gun rights while reducing the toll of gun violence”

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.
