Short Barrel Rifle (SBR) Restrictions Suck!

Is this legal? Yes. Well, sort of. It depends on how you hold it. But that's subject to change at any given time.

Have you ever noticed that laws are generally about what you can’t do, instead of what you can? This makes a lot of sense, as it would be silly to try to enumerate all the things you’re allowed to do, like dye your hair blue or put garden gnomes in your front yard. On the […]

Nine Shooting Industry Predictions for 2015

The NRA Annual Meeting 2014, Indianapolis, IN.

2014 marked a return to some semblance of normalcy in our industry. Whew, the past couple of years have been a pain. Too little product and too high prices. In 2015, we’ll get back to a sane business model with new products and broad availability. Danger looms on the political front with a lame duck […]

No Guns Allowed!

Gun free zones

I feel like I’m a fairly bright guy. Especially when I watch Wheel of Fortune and guess at least half of the puzzles without buying a single vowel. Brainpower or not, this issue has me totally flamboozled. It’s the “No Guns Allowed” campaign led by the Moms Demand Alimony From That Napoleonic Little Tyrant Michael […]

Four Gun Laws I Would Repeal First (If I Was a Benevolent Dictator)

7-rounds-robbery

Back when I was young, naive and not yet wise to the ways of the world, about two weeks ago, I was fantasizing about being elected Benevolent Dictator of the Universe. You know, just like President Nine Iron. Since I view the whole gun issue as a great barometer for individual liberty and personal accountability, […]

TSA Bully Tactics: Making Travelers Violate Federal Law

This is legal if you pay attention to the rules. Don't let TSA agents bully you in to breaking the law,

When you’re the fastest growing federal bureaucracy in history (that’s NOT a good thing by the way) you get to do pretty much whatever you want, regardless of what the law says. After all, they’ve got uniforms, buy lawyers by the pallet load, and if all else fails, have Eric Holder on their side of […]

You Might Be A Gun Control Activist If…

Gun-Control-911

You might be a gun control activist if… You think Shannon watts makes a lot of sense if people would just listen to her. You think that Shannon could deliver her message more effectively if she talked slow and loud, like you do when visiting foreign countries. You’ve had a pot luck supper at Michael […]

Pro-Gun Policy Will Fail Because There Were No Nuclear Wars

Cold War strategy sucked

  Some gun control mantras make my head explode – and they don’t even use the phrase “for the children!” I’ll venture a guess they will cause you equal frustration. So go find a roll of duct tape. Then wrap your head with it. Done? Good. Now wrap an extra couple of layers, because I’m […]

The Chicken Little Diaries: Close Encounters of the Neighborly Kind

Food Lion Shooting Range-1

  Last time, I relayed the first part of the Chicken Little Diaries: A Shooting Range Zoning Saga. It was about a neighborhood and town council reaction to the proposed opening of an indoor shooting range. This week, the saga continues… Every neighborhood has one of “those guys”, right? Ours is a very left-leaning political […]
