“While your character may come under scrutiny during a trial the key element is this regardless of your level of saint or sinner-hood. If you are attacked you have the right to defend yourself by any means necessary to preserve your life.”

well, they wanted equality

I have absolutely no problems with women serving in “combat units” in the military…  

… so long as they meet exactly the same, already-established standards that everyone else serving there already met.  

Simply put, having separate requirements for women and men in a combat unit is absolutely idiotic; it is not like an M240B will care whether the person humping it 10 miles over a mountain has breasts or not, and neither will […]

‘under new management’ indeed

Really, Coal Creek Armory?


Any gun shop owner in America with two neurons to rub together comprehends that females are one of the – if not the – fastest growing market segments in the firearm-owning community, and you go and decided it would be a fantastic idea to sponsor one of the "premier" exercises in objectifying women?

"Tone deaf" seems like a woefully underwhelming phrase to describe this particular […]

the proper way to phrase the argument

Why do "gun control" extremists hate women, the weak, the infirm, and the old?

Small size, light weight, and good balance make them [Personal Defense Weapons (PDWs)] particularly handy for women, who usually have less upper body strength than men. Unfortunately, these useful personal protection devices have been heavily regulated since the 1930s, and completely banned for civilian production in 1986. These bans discriminate against the smaller and weaker Americans – […]

guns are bad news for women, the politician

If guns are "bad news" for women, then why does Hillary Clinton, the current Secretary of State and a woman to boot, currently have a security force with 13 female members?

To be a woman on the secretary of state’s security detail, you have to be fast, smart, and tough—and willing to take a bullet, even if you’re in heels.

The number of women on the Secretary of State […]

how not to be a victim

We spend a lot of time talking about firearms and self-defense and rights and tactics and considerations and legalities and all the rest of that good nonsense on a regular basis here at "walls of the city", but the simple truth of the matter is that the most valuable, most important, and most capable tool for ensuring your own safety and that of your family resides behind your two eyes. You could be naked and […]

just a helpful hint

There is one absolutely surefire way to lose any remaining credibility you might have had, and any respect from me you ever hoped to receive: 

Fail to take ownership of your actions. 

We are nothing if we are not men of our words, and deeds, and while there is absolutely no shame in apologizing for your actions (in fact, there may be a significant degree of honor to be retained when doing […]

dear eric heyl

I might care about your misogynistic bigotry if it was even loosely based in this thing we like to call “reality”. 

But it is not

So I do not. 

Instead, I will simply sit back and watch your ass get handed to you by a woman a fraction of your size who is already more capable, more self-reliant, more independent, and more an […]

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 […]

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 […]
