Have nothing to do with the [evil] things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light... [For] when all things are brought out into the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed...

Third Colorado State Senator Resigns to Avoid Being Recalled

In anticipation that the recall movement that had successfully ousted two other Colorado state senators over gun control issues this past summer was about to overwhelm a third, state senator Evie Hudak abruptly resigned on Wednesday, rather than face a recall. By resigning, under Colorado law her successor must be appointed by the Democrat party, thus preserving a one-vote margin in the senate. If she had been ousted, she likely would have been replaced with a Republican.

The recall movement claimed it had 18,900 valid signatures which it was going to submit to the Colorado state’s secretary on Monday, and it was becoming more and more obvious that Hudak

The Harder the “Control Freaks” Push for Sanctions, the Faster Freedom Spreads

Anti-gun liberals like Senators Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Ben Nelson (D-Fla.) along with Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) have their knickers in a knot over the imminent expiration of the Undetectable Firearms Act in a little over three weeks. They simply can’t abide the idea of allowing Americans to make their own firearms at home without serial numbers, without a license, without permission, without approval. Something must be done!

Happily, they can’t do much, except

Mixed Results from Tuesday’s Elections

On the surface, the reelection of Chris Christie as New Jersey’s governor was remarkable, winning with a resounding 60% of the vote in a dark blue (liberal Democrat) state.

A closer look reveals that Christie was running as a Republican in name only, against a weak opponent who was earlier slated to lose by a much higher margin. Christie won for his ability to

Another School District Arms Its Teachers

This article first appeared at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, July 31st, 2013:

 

The very day that David Lieb, writing in the liberal Huffington Post, concluded that legislation allowing school districts across the country to arm teachers was “stalled”, another school district announced that it has adopted just such a policy: Clarksville, Arkansas. Those “stalls”, however, according to Lieb, had little to do with lack of support from legislators but instead from strong resistance from

CFR Steps Up Attack on the Second Amendment Using Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics

When Julia Sweig, the Nelson and David Rockefeller Senior Fellow for Latin American Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), released her memorandum on how to reduce gun violence in the US and Latin America, it revealed not only the CFR’s blatant disregard for American’s Second Amendment rights but also her proclivity to

Trayvon Martin was no innocent

On Friday President Obama, in an informal briefing in the Rose Garden instead of the usual press room of the White House, reiterated his earlier statement that Trayvon Martin, the victim in the Sanford, Florida shooting in February 2012, “could have been my son.” Said Obama:

You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot I said that this could have been my son.  Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.

And then he expanded on his remarks

Let’s assume that you are at home, minding your own business, when all of a sudden you hear the shrieking of someone being attacked by dogs on the sidewalk in front of your home. What would you do?

IRS Apologizes … for what?

3D Guns are here!

You’ve no doubt been watching this technology unfold, perhaps more rapidly than anyone expected. But the day has arrived: anyone with a 3D printer and some software available on the internet for free can print his own gun. 3D printers are now for sale at just over $1,000.

Arkansas Senator Pryor’s Troubles Continue to Mount

In a veiled threat directed at Arkansas’ senior Senator Mark Pryor, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, in his role as co-founder of the anti-gun group Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG), said last Thursday that any lawmakers who are “going with the NRA” are “going against the lives of our children.” When asked directly if that meant that his group was going to target Arkansas’ Democratic Senator Mark Pryor specifically, Bloomberg demurred:

“Control: Exposing the Truth about Guns” by Glenn Beck

His latest book arrived on Tuesday on my Kindle and I read it into the wee hours last night. I’m not finished with it but I thought I’d pass on some initial reactions to it in case you’re thinking of getting a copy.

Beck cranks these out on a regular basis using the skills, abilities and experience of others. I think that’s a good strategy, but
