Much like FoxNews and their token liberals, the stridently anti-Second Amendment Huffington Post will occasionally publish pieces from time to time by a “gun guy.”  That is literally how Mike Weisser self identifies to the world via his blog and his description at the HuffPo.  He confidently claims that “I know as much about guns and hunting as anyone“ which is…

Why in the world would we want to wait till the government does it to protest? It's way to late by that point, so lets stop it while it's still at the "opinion makers" stage, and go after it aggressively before it gets to the yellow stars. In comments here.  Backstory: Joanna disagrees some of…

Herald Times stated that their database had nothing to do with gun control, right?  Then how come their gun permit database is being defended by a lobbyist for the number 1 gun control organization in America?  Aside from the fact that the HTO is afraid of taking the debate on the air and being exposed…

I have gotten a lot of questions from readers as to why I'm so opposed to the Herald Times printing a database of handgun permit holders.  While there are plenty of reasons, the primary reason that I'm against this sort of thing is that it objectively fails the Jews in the attic test.  While Joe's…

And misses by a wide margin, but that's okay.  In light of recent criticism of their handgun carry permit database, the HTO published an editorial which "rebuts" all the points made by pro-gunners by saying "nuh-uh" and then calling the NRA a "big meanie".  I haven't actually blockquoted and ripped an editor in a while,…

It seems like the Obama adminisitration is trying to reclassify a "switchblade" as essentially any knife that can be opened with one hand.  Which would make well, all of my knives switchblades.  I'm so happy to see that while the type of tool they're trying to ban isn't guns this time, that the method of…

I've been following Uncle's coverage of the "Guns in Bars" bill in Tennessee, and was quite pleased to see that the TN House and Senate overrode the Governor's veto, which means that law abiding citizens in the state of Tennessee will be allowed to carry their legally concealed firearms in establishments that serve alcohol.  The…

I have had a lot of fun reading the hysterics and histrionics from the gun control crowd post-Heller; Sebastian has a great link up to the New England Journal of Medicine where they are of the opinion that the Heller will somehow cause the streets to run with blood. NEJM unfortunately bases their article on…

Thanks to Joe (the Man) Huffman for the link, it seems that American "Civil Liberties" Union has an additional post up on their blog clarifying their position on Heller.  Here are the meat and potatoes: The ACLU interprets the Second Amendment as a collective right. Therefore, we disagree with the Supreme Court’s decision in D.C.…

I know that looks like a typo, but it's not.  Thanks to Fits for the link, here's the entire (very short) story from the local New Mexico station: ALBUQUERQUE—A University of New Mexico student has been arrested on charges of unlawfully carrying guns on campus.UNM Police Chief Kathy Guimond says Kevin Boyar, 19, was arrested…
