Getting that feel-good feeling

The San Diego Union-Tribune has an article in today's paper on a local woman's efforts to ban billboard advertising of gun shows. She sees the violence guns have brought to her community, so the last thing Bevelynn Bravo wants is for them to be advertised around her neighborhood. In her five-year crusade, Bravo has tried […]

Crime round-up

Today's Union-Tribune crime briefs contain four violent attacks. Only one of them used a firearm; two were knives and the last was a broken bottle. If people want to hurt other people, gun control won't stop it from happening.

Big hypocrite

Guns are bad. Really bad. At least, that's what the Academy Award-winning film "Bowling for Columbine" purported to show. America is a dangerous place with all of these gun-wielding nuts running around. Then you see this: Filmmaker Michael Moore's bodyguard was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon in New York's JFK airport Wednesday night. Police […]

That "assault weapons" ban

It's gone. The thing was useless anyway -- based on not what particular guns could do, but instead what they looked like. MoveOn PAC's latest ad is, according to the sometimes nonpartisan "about as misleading as it can be." Through words, graphics and sound effects, it invites viewers to think that the expiration of […]

Kristof on guns

Today's New York Times op-ed piece by Nicholas Kristof takes President Bush to task for not actively urging an extension of the decade-old assault weapons ban. The assault weapons ban, for the record, is a joke. It is a law that is all about aesthetics -- what the weapon looks like -- not what it […]

Journalists and numbers

The stereotype about numbers being to journalists like kryptonite to Superman is often true. It starts early. Case in point is this article from the Daily Illini. Ignore the predictable left-wing, anti-gun bias and focus on this paragraph: A study done by the Violence Policy Center found that one in every five law enforcement officers […]

Like Disneyland for adults!

Today's Wall Street Journal has a great article on a machine gun shoot at Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Ky. After reading the piece, I want to go out and fire a .50-cal sniper rifle -- talk about fun!

Now this is a gun!

I just like the idea of a gun that fires a million rounds a minute -- and now it appears that it's real. I'm betting that Rachel Lucas would love this.

More on our friends the Saudis

I spotted this item last week over at National Review Online, but never got around to addressing it. A piece by Kathryn Jean Lopez takes Congress to task for considering a bill "allowing American servicewomen and other Prince Sultan airbase personnel to go off base without the attire the kingdom of Saudi Arabia requires all […]

SEN. LANKFORD: "Can you help me get a good definition of 'birthing people?'"

BECERRA: "We're trying to be precise in the language that's used."

SEN. LANKFORD: "Mom is a pretty good word. That's worked for a while."

Ummm...who elected her? Is there something wrong with the guy we did elect? What do we pay the FLOTUS? A "United States government official"?

Prepping for the G7.

One of the most frightening articles I've ever read.

So, @SLOTribune columnist and local Democratic party apparatchik Tom Fulks was on local radio last night and told listeners that the difference between the Democratic and Republican parties is that the Democratic Party wants to help people and the GOP wants to hurt people 1/
