“You can’t fight the City Hall!” Perhaps, but…

“Gun” control is people control.

Banning safety features

The scary-looking carbine above is a semi-auto 9mm, one of the weakest centerfire rounds ever used in a long gun. But the “shoulder thingy that goes up” makes it scary. The ignorant Carolyn McCarthy wants it banned. Feinstein’s new gun … Continue reading

A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.

Mark Twain was right. The current gun control push is fueled by conducting a false flag operation (which Fast and Furious was and the school shootings may be), then quickly making many false claims about guns, medical privacy, freedom of … Continue reading

The “nobody needs” fallacy

Does anyone really need old family snapshots? Pictures of your child as a baby, or of your grandparents on their honeymoon have no monetary worth and nearly no practical value. What can you do with them, besides looking every few … Continue reading

One devious reason for the illogical nature of anti-gun laws

Most violations of the myriad of Byzantine laws and regulations are prosecuted as felonies. Having an 11-round magazine in a state that forbids anything over 10 opens a person for prosecution. If that prosecution succeeds — a lifetime disenfranchisement AND … Continue reading
