TTAG Turns Two: Sutherland Edition

I am undoubtedly the least qualified guy to write about firearms for TTAG. However that never stopped Robert Farago from throwing out the fear and common sense clause and letting me join in the reindeer games on his website. So now you have a Canadian car guy who writes about gun issues and somehow it […]

A Powerful Look at a Moment in History

Youtube is an interesting part of life in the 21st century because it connects us to the world in an unusual manner. We can see the best of times and the worst of times through there as it makes future stars out of nobodies (see early Justin Bieber video) and dogs (see any goofy mutt […]

Canada’s Castle Doctrine. Or Lack Thereof.

[HTML1] Ian Thomson never meant to become a poster boy for the right to protect one’s home and property in Canada, but that is the role foisted upon him by a Canadian court case.

Within hours, eighteen-year-old Sarah McKinley became a poster girl for the right to bear arms debate in the US. And why not? Her reaction to a home invasion makes a pretty strong case […]

You may recall our story about Tees Alberta Canada farmer Brian Knight [not shown]. To recap via cbc.ca: “In the early morning of March 26, 2009, Knight found three men in his farmyard. He jumped out of bed and gave chase clad in boxer shorts and rubber boots to a man riding Knight’s all-terrain vehicle. Knight rammed the ATV with […]

I found the story in my local newspaper after the want ads, tucked comfortably into the very back pages of the paper. [Click here for telegraph.co.uk‘s account] The rigid news story mantra—“if it bleeds it leads”—does not apply when […]
