Click here for video taken by a bystander in September. It shows New York’s [allegedly] finest circling and firing at a deranged man in the middle of Times Square…while many hundreds of other bystanders watch from the sidewalks. The NYPD is no stranger to piss-poor marksmanship, but the Bad Shots In Blue really outdid themselves this […]
As the father of a recently-minted teen and a (relatively) recently-divorced OFWG, my social life is a little on the thin side. Between budgeting for school uniforms, paying bills and working my Alice B. Tookus off, “Date Night” is a rare pleasure. When I get a night on the town with my girlfriend, it’s got […]
I’m fairly certain that when that noted folk-rock supergroup Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith wrote that song, teaching your children about guns was hardly what they had in mind.

In the interests of […]

On May 19, 2009, Antwun “Speedy” Parker (16) and his gun-wielding pal came into the pharmacy attempting to rob the place, Ersland shot Parker in the head from behind the counter. At the time, Parker was trying to put […]
I was walking down the aisles at the NRA Convention when the Timney Triggers booth caught my eye. A gigantic banner above their booth proclaimed that they produced “The World’s Finest Triggers.” I couldn’t resist. “You make the best triggers, eh?” I asked. “Yes, we do!” the representative behind the table responded. “Prove it!” I […]
I’m a recent convert to All Things Mac. From the PR emanating out of Cupertino, you might think that Macficiandoes are all sunshine, sweetness and light, who all join hands for the morning groupthink and Shambala sing-along.
