Anyone Can Handle A Gun Safely: NOT!

As most of you know I have been very critical of concealed carry, open carry, etc…and can’t quite fathom why we continue to suffer mass shootings and lead the world in gun deaths.

An Important Point To Make, Don’t Try To Be Subtle Or Clever!

From Piers Morgan’s last appearance in CNN: As Sir Winston Churchill said: “If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time — a tremendous whack.” And I guess […]

The Hypocrisy Of Republicans on Benghazi and the Navy Yard

In between voting the 41st time and the 42nd time to repeal or defund Obamacare, the Republicans have reopened their investigation into Benghazi!

Five Year Old Boy Shoots and Kills His Two Year Old Sister

I am not even sure what to say about this…I am totally incredulous that someone would think that a 22 caliber rifle is a reasonable gift for a four year old…that a parent wouldn’t keep it locked up at all times…and that once again the I didn’t think it was loaded comment comes up.
