Demand a Plan? How About This?

Whiny Hollywood hypocrites are at it again, demanding “a plan” in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting. Their plan: more background checks, “assault weapon” bans, magazine bans. This got me thinking. The average American child will have watched 100,000 acts of television violence (including 8,000 murders), by age 13. In response, I am calling on our elected leaders to deal with the issue of violent entertainment. I am demanding a plan of my own.

An Open Letter to President Obama

The causes of violent crime are bigger than guns, or media, or games, or mental health. I was encouraged to read that the President recognizes that the causes are many and complex. I hope he meant it, and that it wasn’t just a cover for a panel discussion on gun control. Many Americans, myself included, are rightly skeptical. I present here an open letter to President Obama, with an idea to do something NOW, to stop future school shootings.

It’s Not About Guns, It’s About Control

So, given the fact that none of these gun control measures would have had an effect on the gun violence we have seen in the last few years, where does that leave us? Well, if the only solution you can think of is to pass more laws, the only one that will work is an outright ban and confiscation of all civilian firearms. Our enemies in the anti-gun media and anti-gun politicians, the effete liberals who fear guns because they think gun culture means violence and mayhem, are not stupid. They really don’t care about saving lives. It’s really about control, not guns. So the end game is a total ban.

Sandy Hook and Our National Soul

In a nation that so publicly rejects God and faith, which cheapens life for the convenience of the living, which has replaced true community with social media, which glamorizes violence, and dehumanizes the victims of violence in games, movies and television, is there any wonder we see tragedies like the…

S&W 5906 Review

Favored by law enforcement officers from main street to Hollywood, including Detective Murtaugh in Lethal Weapon, Hunter, agent Sarah Walker from Chuck, and even Mulder and Scully from the X-Files, the Smith & Wesson 5906 is a dream to shoot and a testament to a by-gone era of firearms manufacturing…

Costas, Whitlock, and Liberalism

Bob Costas created quite a stir when he went on an anti-gun rant in his halftime thoughts about the murder-suicide of Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher. Since it’s estimated that over half of Americans are legal gun owners, it’s fair to say that Costas alienated a ton of football fans in a very short commentary.

Tips for Vehicle Carry

An important part of concealed carry is how to carry a concealed weapon in a vehicle. How can you access it quickly and easily if you need it? How do you transition from a holster to off-body storage and then back? Here are some tips on carrying in your car.

Happy Thanksgiving 2012

I believe that God created me and all creatures great and small. God gave me body and soul, my mind and all my senses and preserves them, as well. God gives me a beautiful wife and wonderful children, family, friends, clothing and shoes, food and drink, house and land, and all that I own (including guns and ammo).

SAR B6P Review

The SRB6P pistol is a modernized clone of the world famous CZ-75 manufactured by Turkish arms manufacturer Sarsilmaz, whose experience in pistols, revolvers, and shotguns spans 131 years. So how does that experience translate in this latest incarnation of one of the world’s most recognizable, and beloved handgun designs?

Dustin Ellermann’s Youth Marksmanship Camp

When Top Shot Season 3 Champion Dustin Ellermann announced that he would be holding several youth marksmanship camps this fall, I jumped at the chance to sign up. Granted, Texas is a long way to go for a marksmanship camp. Even farther when you consider that we decided to drive instead of flying. Sixteen hours one way. A total of 32 hours of driving to attend a 26 hour camp. Was it worth it?

A Final Thought On The Election

Well, it’s finally over. No more political ads on the radio and TV. No more classless liberals vandalizing private property to destroy Republican yard signs and bumper stickers. No more losers going on about how they will kill Romney if he wins. No more phone calls begging me to go vote because I want to make sure my 2-year-old daughter has access to contraceptives and abortion-on-demand (that was a call from Democrat NC-10 hopeful Patsy Keever’s campaign, by the way). Unfortunately, what is not over is our national nightmare and our long march toward Western European style socialism.

A Round in the Pipe

When I first started to carry a concealed handgun, I was hesitant to carry with a round in the chamber, “cocked and locked”, so to speak. Maybe you’re just starting to carry and the thought that you might make a mistake and accidentally shoot yourself, or someone else, prevents you from taking the final step toward truly carrying a concealed weapon. The truth is, until you get past that fear you’re still unarmed.

The Case for Cheap Guns

During the second presidential debate, President Obama answered a question about gun control by first openly advocating a return of the ugly gun ban, but then transitioned into an indictment of “cheap guns,” blaming them for the violence raging in some of our inner cities (like his hometown of Chicago)….

We Can’t Sit This One Out

I’ve heard grumblings from libertarian types at gun shows and among friends on social media that they’re going to stay home in November. They have plenty of excuses. But if you care about your Second Amendment rights, President Obama made it clear in this week’s debate at Hofstra University why you simply cannot sit this one out.

Versacarry Review

I don’t remember where I first read about the Versacarry, but the concept intrigued me. Unlike most holsters which wrap around or create a pocket for the gun to sit in, the Versacarry is hardly bigger than the gun itself and holds he gun in place with an unusual design…

SRGC Combat Practical Pistol

I have been carrying for a while, competing a little bit, but have not taken any formal training. I decided to start with the Combat Practical Pistol course offered by my home range, Springs Road Gun Club. While much of the class time was refresher, the real pressure and learning…
