Giving Thanks

Every year at Thanksgiving we pause to consider what we are thankful for. I thought I would list some of the things on my list.

H&K P30SK Decocker Review

I have always wanted a Heckler & Koch, but I didn’t want to pay the steep pricetag the guns typically command. When I saw the P30SK available at a reasonable price point, I was excited. Did it live up to my expectations?

Paris is Coming

It’s taken me a couple of days to wrap my head around the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday. The horrors we saw unfold again in gun-free France lead me, and many others, to one maddening conclusion: it will happen here.

An Open Letter to the IDPA

The International Defensive Pistol Association made an announcement in late September that scoring for inaccurate shots would double in an ongoing effort to value “accuracy over speed.” After giving it a lot of thought, here’s my response.

Regulating Guns Like Toys

In a recent op-ed at, activist Sally Kohn thinks we regulate toys more heavily than we do guns, and something needs to be done about it. For the children.

Only Evil Can Profit

Why is compromise always a one-way street? Why are we always expected to compromise our rights to make gun control advocates feel safer?

Law Abiding Gun Owners…Until We Are Not

The standard solution proposed by gun control advocates to mass shootings, like the recent shooting in Oregon, is to call for expanded background checks. When we point out that this idea would only infringe on the rights of law abiding gun owners, the response from liberals is puzzling.

Drones and Gun Control

Last weekend California Governor Jerry Brown vetoed bills regulating “hobbyist drone flights.” His reasoning makes perfect sense but one must wonder why it isn’t applied to guns.

No, Goldie, this is Not on Us

As you would expect, the anti-gun ghouls are out in full force in the wake of a mass murder in yet another gun-free zone on a community college campus in Oregon.

The Wolf in Shepherds Clothing

The fact that the Pope has been widely embraced by the American Left — from President Obama to the environmental movement, from socialists like Bernie Sanders to gun banners like Gabby Giffords — should tell you all you need to know about who this Pope really is.

In a Single Moment, Mark Kelly Sinks to a New Low

Every year Gabby Giffords’ husband Mark Kelly celebrates the anniversary of his wife’s shooting by retelling the story and begging supporters of their anti-gun organization to advocate for the expansion of the kind of background checks that his wife’s attacker passed.
