Hoystory's New Venture: RestrictedArms.com

You might have noticed that things have quieted down around here. As Monty Python famously noted: "It's not dead. It's just resting." (Of course, in that case it was actually dead, but no matter.) Much of my time recently has been focused on my new venture: RestrictedArms.com. I encourage you all to check it out, offer […]

Cakes, Guns, and willful animus

If I asked a liberal Colorado baker to make a pro-Second Amendment cake in the shape of a gun, could they refuse my business based upon their conscience? I bring this up not because it's happened, but because what's happened this week in Colorado brings to mind a lot of what is happening in our […]

Free speech and anti-gun hysteria

This has been a banner week for attacks on free speech and general anti-gun hysteria from the usual corners. Open carry coming soon I spent an hour Monday talking with Dave Congalton about a recent decision from a 3-judge panel of the 9th Circuit that found a right for law-abiding citizens to openly carry a […]

A mental health problem, not a gun problem

Last Friday's tragic school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas should tell us, once again, that we have a serious mental health problem in this country, instead the political left will make it about guns. Not the usual suspects The 17-year-old Texas shooter (Hoystory does not name mass murderers.) killed 10 and wounded […]

Two media outlets on guns

The news media just doesn't get firearms. I worked for a total of four newspapers over the course of my 15-year career in journalism. Two of those papers, The Lompoc Record and The Daily World (Aberdeen, Wash.) are hollow shells of what they once were. The third paper, The North County Times, no longer exists. And the last, The […]

Keeping kids safe on campus

Despite what some may believe, I really do care about keeping kids safe on campus. In the wake of the horrific massacre last week at Parkland, Fla.'s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 dead, I got the predictable query from KVEC 920 AM radio host Dave Congalton to come on his show and […]

Getting your facts right

Last week, I went on the Dave Congalton show to talk about gun and the 2nd Amendment once again. You can listen to it here. This week, on the same day yet another nut, who somehow managed to get a number of firearms despite being a prohibited person, killed five and injured at least 10 up […]

The Las Vegas Atrocity

My wife awakened me this morning to tell me about the mass shooting in Las Vegas. The number of dead then numbered 50, making it the worst mass shooting in modern American history, it has since climbed to 59. More than 500 others were injured from not just gunfire, but shrapnel, trampling and other trauma […]
