The lynch mob that has formed in my beloved River City has been a relentless miasma of suck. “Protesters” have been disrupting civic events, threatening to disrupt football games, block traffic and a fresh round of looting has broken out. At least two police officers have been shot, though it’s not clear if those incidents […]

Reader cuzwhat writes: Recently, TTAG asked its loyal readership for their opinions about their favorite gun shops. While several shops are dank holes in the wall in sketchy parts of town full of regulars, other shops are add-on afterthoughts to sporting goods stores. Other shops attempt to broaden their audience, be it with location, amenities, […]
salon.com‘s got their proverbial knickers in a twist (yes, I said it) about Iowa congressman Steve King’s “appalling” back-in-the-day sexist remark. “Back when King was in the Iowa state Senate, where he served from 1996 to 2002, he attempted to shut down a fellow female member of the Judiciary Committee during a debate over closing the gun […]

A former police officer who prefers to remain anonymous writes: For those readers of this site who believe a firearms registry already exists, this won’t be a surprise.

According to npr.org‘s A Doctor Turned Mayor Solves A Murder Mystery In Colombia, Dr. Rodrigo Guerrero came up with a successful prescription for “gun violence.” “With the army’s OK, he implemented a ban on carrying weapons on weekends and holidays.

When Fall Friday nights come around, I feel sympathy for the high school football teams that lose by enormous margins. As I wrote in “High School Football as-Bullying?” size, strength and ability matter.
