New Yorker Funny Guy to Gun Rights Advocates: You’re Morons

New Yorker writer Andy Borowitz is tired. He’s too tired to fact-check studies that “prove” that gun ownership is a bad, bad thing for both individuals and society at large. Too tired to read TTAG’s analysis of the faulty methodology required to produce these foregone conclusion. And he’s tired of people who dare question this “settled science” on […]

Incendiary Image of the Day: F*&k Chris Kyle Edition

Plenty of people took offense at the movie American Sniper. They considered Chris Kyle a homicidal tool of American imperialism. Very few, however, broke cover to express this opinion, what with patriotic Kyle supporters being so passionate in his defense. D.C. denizen and artist Abby Martin has no compunctions about poking the [non-Russian] bear with her “F Chris Kyle” T-shirt. Scarily […]

The Fear of Guns

Dan Wos of the Defining Success in America blog writes: When I was a kid, my Dad took me out hunting and target shooting. He loved it. Me, not so much. It just wasn’t my thing. I tried, but I just wasn’t interested. I mean, I didn’t dislike guns and I wasn’t scared of them. I just […]

My buddy, “German Peter,” went on a little ATI shopping spree then dumped the parts and a […]

Inside the Twisted Mind of a Gun Control Advocate: Senator Chris Murphy Edition

“I remember ickhe hours and days after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting,” Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy opines at (excerpted from recent Senate testimony). “I remember feeling like I needed to be restrained about talking about the obvious policy issues that tumbled out of the facts surrounding that tragedy.” Huh? You’d kinda expect a rabid anti-gunner like […]

Everyone Has a Gun in Wyoming

I recently made a quick trip to Wyoming. My husband and I wanted to see if the Equality State could provide a suitable homestead for the Tipton clan. My California friends anticipated trouble. “Watch out,” they warned. “Everyone in Wyoming has a gun.” My real estate agent did. The single mom of two packs a GLOCK 9mm. I’m not sure why that […]

Quote of the Day: Home Carry Edition

“One morning in 2007, as she let the cat out before daybreak, the bride, Helen Hill, faced the scenario that gun nuts dream about. As she stepped outside early one morning, she came face-to-face with an intruder. She had time only to scream a warning to her husband and child. Then she was dead. Gun advocates […]
