The Washington Times has just published my editorial Racist pols go straight back to disarming blacks. The piece excoriates the Supreme Court for failing to fully restore African Americans’ Second Amendment right to bear arms. It rips Chicago Mayor Richard Daley a new one for his inherently racist gun control legislation: restrictive laws that place discriminatory barriers to handgun ownership for the City’s poorest and most vulnerable residents. And it links across here, to The Truth About Guns. For those of you checking us out for the first time, welcome. If you like guns, if you hate guns, you’ve come to the right place.
As it says at the bottom of this post, The Truth About Guns (TTAG) explores the ethics, morality, business, politics, culture, technology, practice, strategy, dangers and fun (yes fun) of guns. If you’re interested in any of the above, please check in with us regularly. We update the site no less than ten times a day, usually more.
TTAG does not ask or expect its writers or commentators to express any particular point of view re: guns or gun rights issues. We publish any and all perspectives without fear or favor. We do, however, have a strict flaming policy. Any comments that are personally insulting are removed. Their author is warned. Repeat offenders are permanently banned from posting. This ensures that TTAG is a safe place for open, honest debate.
TTAG is also completely open to new writing talent. If you’d like to write gun reviews, firearms-oriented rants or pithy news blogs for our small but growing community (roughly 2000 unique views per day), please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The pay sucks but the editing is ruthless. And the glory is infinite. If you’re an advertiser looking to hook-up with gun nuts and anti-gun nut nuts, for God’s sake man, press send (after you write an email).
In any event, TTAG is dedicated to telling the truth about guns. We invite your comments, corrections and criticism. And that’s the truth.
