… Guns and alcohol simply will not mix.
But moving on to more serious matters, it would appear as though the usual, useful idiots are trotting out the usual, useless arguments about ZOMG guns in bars. Color me surprised. However, just like here in Tennessee all those years ago, most of the arguments against allowing law-abiding, trained, and permitted individuals to carry firearms into establishments that serve alcohol are based on misdirection (the bill [...]
It may take me a few moments to compose myself in order to adequately respond to this news, rather than just flail meaninglessly on the keyboard:
The Obama administration announced Thursday that it would suspend deportation proceedings against many illegal immigrants who pose no threat to national security or public safety.
White House and immigration officials said they would exercise “prosecutorial discretion” to focus enforcement efforts on cases involving criminals and people [...]
The interesting thing, to me, at least, on this graphic plotting suppressor sales in various states is not so much the rankings of those states:
Instead, look at how the numbers are increasing from year to year – 15,089 in 2008, 20,353 in 2009, and 22,265 in 2010. 2011’s fiscal year is rapidly coming to a close, and I have to wonder if it will show the same steady increase in suppressor purchases. [...]
Thanks to some generous linking to my pop quiz post from The High Road, The Liberal Gun Club, and OK Shooters, Tuesday is going to be ranked as my second-most busy day – apparently those sites wield a hell of a lot of traffic, and I appreciate every bit of the attention guys!
As a reminder, enacting “gun control” as an attempt to control crime simply does not make sense:
… just [...]
And now we return you to the original purpose of this category.
Below is a quote from a recent USA Today Opinion column, however, this quote has been modified slightly. I changed one solitary word and five words in a row, but I contend that the original thrust of the comment – the core of the author’s statement – remains identical no matter if you look at the original quote or my altered one.

About the only positive thing I could ever say about MikeB302000 is that he has prompted a significant number of folks to pen a significant number of truly outstanding posts… kind like how overbearing, authoritarian, abusive governments prompted the founding of our great nation. At any rate, Joe Huffman has yet another amazing post up wherein he takes MikeB’s points out to the woodshed and beats them like the proverbial red-headed step-child, and I definitely [...]
Unfortunately, I must confess to being the weaker man, and not sharing in Joe Huffman’s belief that Joan Peterson just gave us the win in the “gun control” fight – to be certain, hers was a positively massive admission to make, and it thoroughly confirms some of my long-standing suspicious about the deeper motivations of anti-rights cultists, but it is just one (particularly deranged) individual’s comments, and you can rest assured that the Big Talkers [...]
Historically speaking, firearm registration invariably leads to firearm confiscation – the only significant variable is time.
This was true in Canada:
Ten months after Rock’s remarks, Parliament passed the Canadian Firearms Act, and confiscating legally owned firearms is precisely the first thing the new law did. The first of three major provisions to go into effect banned private ownership of well more than half of Canada’s legally registered pistols. Any handgun of .32 [...]
