Background Check B.S.

As is the course, after every highly publicized mass killer incident, pretty much every anti-Second Amendment talking head comes out of the woodwork calling for us to “do something.” That “something” often wears the face of so-called “universal background checks.” In this post, I’m going to attempt to educate readers on the current state of background checks, and what “universal…

Actual Gun Safety

As the title of this blog suggests, I believe in gun safety. However, what I think of as gun safety is pretty much the opposite of what anti-Second Amendment organizations like Everytown for Gun Safety think of. In fact, even though it caused me to throw up in my mouth just a little bit, I went through everytown.org (no link because…

The Model 12

The last few posts have leaned political in nature, so I thought I would get back to a more pure gun story. One of the reasons I’m so passionate about guns is the memories and emotions I associate with them. Today, you’ll learn the story of another one in my collection, a Winchester Model 12 shotgun. History Originally known as…

If Guns Were The Problem…

I have to wonder about the motives of people that blame inanimate objects for a problem. We hear it all the time. Take Shannon Watts for example. Every time some sociopath uses a gun to shoot some people, she’s all over the news telling us that there are too may guns. “America is awash in guns—and it’s a huge problem!”…

“High-Capacity” Magazines

It used to really piss me off, but now I find it amusing. Whenever a TV “gun expert” blathers on about “high-capacity magazine clips” that were the cause of so much carnage in some random shooting. Like most pop-culture gun terms, “high-capacity magazine” is a completely made up term that has no meaning at all. It’s designed to sound scary…

No New Gun Laws

Why I Oppose New Gun Laws

It’s almost impossible to open a newspaper or turn on a TV and not read or hear another story where some politician or political activist is calling for more gun laws. They used to call it gun control, then that fell out of favor—primarily since most Americans are not in favor it it—so they renamed it “common sense gun laws.”…

I Am A Gun Guy

I like shooting guns. And I’m pretty unapologetic about that. I’m also pretty tired of being marginalized by leftists who insist I need to give up something I really enjoy because a handful of scumbags misuse guns. It’s become a trite and tired saying, but that doesn’t make it any less true; guns don’t kill people, people kill people. And…

I Don’t Need To Justify This

Last time, I wrote about my really fun field trip to the NRA Annual Meeting in Atlanta. It really was huge fun. As a gun guy, I really enjoy hanging out with other gun guys (and gals!), talking about our shared passion for firearms. Some people don’t get that. Some people want to vilify us. Some people claim we’re worse…
