quote of the day – kendra st. clair

By now, you all are probably aware of the story of the 12-year-old girl perforating the home-intruder through the bathroom closet door, but have you heard her response to the incident?

"When I had the gun, I didn’t think I was actually going to have to shoot somebody," the 6th grader recalled. "I think it’s going to change me a whole lot, knowing that I can hold my head up high and nothing can […]

pay no attention to the man behind the curtain

Hopefully my past week of canned posts kept y’all entertained, and, if not, oh well – it would appear as though we need a vacation from our vacation*, so here is another post of me just filling up space by documenting how awesome Penn and Teller are:

Who’s going to rob or rape when there’s a 50% chance that Janie’s got a gun?

And that, right there, is one of our prime motivations […]

occupy [insert location here] recap

I still largely intend on keeping my mostly-radio-silence regarding the complete and utter disaster that is known as "Occupy Wall Street" or "Occupy [Insert Location]" (And, really, what have they accomplished in the past few months? Is it any wonder they cannot get or keep a job?), but that does not mean that other people are not penning outstanding articles on the same.

To begin with, you need to read this whole article written […]

quote of the day – rob crawford

I write a lot here.  You know that.  I know that.  Some of my longest posts range up to thousands and thousands of words, with numerous trains of thought running throughout, tied together by the overarching desire to make myself explicitly, perfectly clear. 

But, sometimes, that degree of verbosity is not strictly required, as this comment from Rob Crawford indicates: 

I quit reading TTAG when it became clear that the editorial stance is […]

open carry stops crime… again

Take a look at this story:

What happened next, to my mind, can only be attributed to the fact that I was OC.

As he drew parallel to me, he looked at me, looked at my firearm, looked at me again and stopped. He stared at me for about 5 seconds (I think) and I kinda stared back. He turned around and went back to the car, getting in the passenger seat. He got […]

quote of the day – miguel

Last weekend, a lot of anti-rights cultists “remembered” the Virginia Tech mass shooting by attempting to use the incident as leverage to enact more “gun-free zones” (also known as “victim disarmament zones”), encourage people to support “gun control”, and other such anti-rights activities. 

I have to wonder why people would use the failure of a program as a reason to support that program, but I stopped expecting rational thought out of hoplophobes a long […]

the declining value of myths

A lot of anti-rights cultists seem to extract no end of entertainment blathering on about the myth of how “guns are ‘bad news’ for women“, complete with proffering a seemingly endless stream of anecdotes and news stories to support their narrow-minded bigotry.

Of course, using the media as their sole source of information was only the first of their mistakes, but perhaps one of the most egregious errors committed by those cultists is mindlessly parroting […]
