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 […]

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 […]

Gun Crime, Pabst Blue Ribbon and Mikey on the Hamster Wheel

New York Safe Act

Gun Crime makes me sick. But just the “crime” part, not the “gun” part. The whole “about to vomit” thing comes from the fact that I can’t get my laparoscopic adjustable gastric band around the fact that… To me, that’s like believing you can wave a magic scepter to vanquish all of the Pabst Blue […]

The Common Sense Language of Gun Control

Impact of words on the gun debate

Words have more power than just about anything. Words can get us married. Words can get us thrown out of bars. Words (in the form of outrageous lies) can get people elected to political office. In fact, words have the power to change a discussion to a completely different topic. As an example, look what […]

Phil’s Phobias, Urticating Caterpillars and the Gun Debate

Australian Phil's Fears

One of the joys of publishing written diatribe for public consumption is the comments and feedback from the… internet. Consider this recent example. Phil from Australia writes… I’m glad I live in Australia, with controlled gun ownership, where all guns must be locked away. EG. I read a story where a 3 year old boy […]

Boiling Frogs, Gun Allergies and How To Influence Enemies

Starbucks gun debate

Having spent decades in the marketing field trying to convince people to buy things they don’t want, I get it. I get that people become acclimated to ideas and new concepts as a result of continued exposure. So when open carry advocates claim that their aim is to desensitize the public to the presence of […]

Top 10 Reasons SHOT Show Is Awesome

The range portion of SHOT Show is equally epic. What you see here is about 10% of Media Day at the Range.

SHOT Show is an annual pilgrimage of fun, friends, work, pain, exhaustion, more work, more fun and certainly a lot more pain. It’s infinite, seemingly boundless and more crowded than a buy one get one free bordello, but you still manage to frequently run into people you know among the 68,000 attendees. I love it. […]
