totalitarians hated the printing press too

I was going to include this with my previous post regarding New York’s obscene new laws and Connecticut’s desired idiocy, but I figured it deserved a post of its own:

Given that set of operating hypotheses, why would it matter if disbelievers spoke up against you? You know you are right, and you know that is […]

crimson trace corporation and soldiers’ angels

Ok, I am getting really good at this. 

First, I am very happy and proud to announce some additions to the “general” prize pool for our Soldiers’ Angels Fundraiser and Giveaway.  Courtesy of Iain Harrison (who you probably know) at Crimson Trace Corporation, I will be able to offer up three Lightguard models as individual prizes – the Glock, XD, and […]
