“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
by Thomas Jefferson

all i am going to say

Do not expect much of a post from me about the shooting at the school in Newtown, CT last Friday; I, for one, do not believe in using the blood of victims as a fuel to further my political goals, unlike your average "gun control" fetishist. My thoughts and prayers are unquestionably with the families of those killed in this horrific crime, though, and if you do want something to read, […]

show your contempt for attorney general eric holder

In honor of Attorney General Eric Holder rightfully being held in contempt of Congress by a House committee and further in honor of Eric Holder repeatedly lying to Congress, Sean Sorrentino has once again opened up ordering on his Gunwalker T-Shirts.

I have been pretty happy with mine, and need to dig it out to wear this weekend. In fact, the temptation to order […]

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 […]

bacon and boomsticks

Unfortunately, our travel plans for the weekend will preclude me from participating in this noble endeavor, but I wholeheartedly approve of and support it: 

A week or so ago, there was a discussion on Twitter about how we should mark the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

One person suggested that we all cook and eat pork, and shoot our guns. This is a most elegant demonstration of […]

these posts almost write themselves

By now, you have almost undoubtedly heard about the 80+ people murdered in a shooting in Norway, and I would like to extend my heart-felt sympathies and prayers to the families and friends of those killed or wounded in this heinous act. 

Unfortunately, rather than leave it at a comment like that, the various anti-rights cultists across the world started spooling up their spin engines before the first body had […]

really, people, how could you?

Look, folks, I am not sure how many times I have to say this, but it is an incontrovertible FACT that guns are “bad news” for women. Period. Full stop. End of story. No debate permitted.

And due to the unquestionable nature of that simple and obvious truth, I really, really wish you people […]

quotes of the day

Oleg Volk has been on something of a roll recently, and a few of his posts deserve attention. First:

Can guns be banned so effectively that they cannot be re-created by motivated people? Yes. It would require destroying all industrial capacity, exterminating anyone with knowledge of weapons or related industries (such as engine making, as firearms are merely heat engines with bullets instead of pistons) and continuing to kill off all new […]
