“This is the most humiliating day in my life,” the driver said, rolling down his window and looking at me with puppy dog eyes. Normally, I wouldn’t gas-up at the Sunoco at the bottom of the hill. And certainly not at night. But I was driving on fumes and my gymnastics-crazed daughter likes to be […]
Aside from the 50’s style voice-over (same guy who did Duck and Cover) and creepy music, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Active Shooter video’s a good thing, not a bad thing. It’s chock full of helpful tips for people facing an active shooter (a.k.a., madman with a gun). What’s missing, of course: any mention […]

Firearm rights are under unprecedented attack. Say what you want about “universal background checks” and “high capacity magazines” and “assault rifles,” even a quick read of New York’s SAFE Act reveals the simple truth: gun control advocates are shooting for confiscation. Even if you set the Constitution to one side, if the “debate” over armed self-defense […]
You’d think Rahm Emanuel would have got the memo (STFU) after critics took the Chicago Mayor to task for demanding that Bank of America and TD bank divest their holdings in Smith & Wesson and Ruger.
