Shot Placement: Come at Me, Bro

“I hope your dogs eat your face.” “You deserve to be raped. I want to be the one to do it.” “I’m going to hunt your family like you hunted that deer.” These and other gems have become nauseatingly familiar to me. Apparently some people hunt and shoot without ever being on the receiving end […]

I Am The NRA (And You Should Be, Too)

Yesterday I slid my renewed NRA membership card into my wallet. As the red-white-and-blue rectangle of plastic snugged up against my NSSF press card and ragged old Hunter’s Education card, it hit me: 15+ years of membership, and only now am I forced to defend my decision to support the NRA.

Fear and Loathing From the Left

Last week, RF wrote while he “may regret saying I’m with Donald I will never regret saying I’m without her.” Given the way that Hillary supporters and their fellow travellers have comported themselves since election day, the concerns or doubts I’ve had about the wisdom of voting for President-Elect Trump have been steadily slipping away.

…And Sometimes You Win

Nick Leghorn has an excellent blow-by-blow on the numbers concerning the election. It notes that the margin of victory for President-Elect Donald Trump was extremely close in a lot of states.

Johannes: Vote for Trump…And More!

A friend of mine recently read my article on Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump. I wrote that if the Democrats nominated Hillary and the GOP nominated Trump, I’d support Donald Trump. “Are you still on board with this?” my friend, a former Bernie enthusiast turned Trump supporter asked. Yes. I stand by what I said: if you value the right to […]

Washington Post Launches Anti-Gun Jihad

In the wake of The Pulse nightclub massacre, The Washington Post has brought out its big guns to vilify civilian gun ownership, tying it to mass murder. The gun used in the Orlando shooting is becoming mass shooters’ weapon of choice lists crimes committed with AR-15-style rifles. One common denominator behind these and other high-casualty mass […]
