Umpqua Gave Us a Real Life Action Hero

HERO Unlike an action hero on the screen, Chris Mintz took real risks and real damage. The problem with a fictional action hero in a movie or in a TV show is that they are the protagonist. You know they can’t really get hurt. They are also always super effective. In fact, whether it is Jason Bourne or Denzel Washington as “the Equalizer” or any of the others, they constantly encourage the myth that a person can be so trained and so skilled that he can fight people with guns and know that he Read more [...] Continue reading →

When Zero Tolerance Is Gun Control on Steroids: What Happens When ALL Self-Defense is Illegal?

bullying race Zero tolerance means that one person rescuing another person from violence might be prosecuted as a crime some day. While there are times when one wishes for more police accountability, many other times they are the most sensible of public employees. In fact, they can often use common sense when others refuse to do so. A recent instance of this occurred when a teen began attacking a legally blind kid by punching him. Another teen intervened by punching the bully and knocking him to the ground. According Read more [...] Continue reading →

Why a Loving Mother Needs to Carry a Firearm

It took place in Norcross, Georgia: “Man tries to kidnap baby from car at McDonald's, but mother fights him off, police say.” Police say a man tried to kidnap a baby from a car in a McDonald's parking lot, but her mother and another relative fought him off. Police in the Atlanta Read more [...] Continue reading →

On Second Amendment, Progressives Just Make It Up As They Go

guns Progressivism has always depended on the destruction of American traditions and culture to advance its agenda. It has to, because it's American individualism that stands in the way of the collectivist worldview. As such, one of the highest priority targets for the Left is gun rights. The number of laws, regulations and roadblocks covering an individual's right to bear arms is well-known, as is the ineffectiveness of gun control at stopping crime. As preventing criminal violence is the primary Read more [...] Continue reading →

CNN Anchors Both Carry and It Saved Their Lives

Watch this one go down the CNN memory hole almost immediately. (They did feel compelled to acknowledge the story.) Former Headline News anchor—Lynne Russell—and her husband (a former CNN correspondent) BOTH carry concealed weapons, and had to use them to defend themselves against a violent thug. Here it is from “A former CNN correspondent was Read more [...] Continue reading →

Democrat Glad None of Dylann Roof's Victims were Armed

concealed carry He claims the “horror” would have been unimaginable if one or more of Dylann Roof's victims had been carrying. The Democrats continue to politicize the Charleston massacre by talking about guns. In fairness, I don’t have the full context. So maybe this Democrat strategist, Bob Shrum, was responding to something someone else said to make a case for gun ownership. But the Democrats were talking gun control talking points within hours of the bloodshed. So listen to what he said: As Read more [...] Continue reading →

From ABC 13 in Houston: “HCSO: Licensed Gun Holder Shoots Would-Be Robber in NE Harris County.” A licensed gun holder took matters into her own hands when a man tried to rob her Friday evening Read more [...] Continue reading →

Don’t Threaten the Wife of a Competitive Shooter

hoodie gunpoint If the thugs had merely robbed the competitive shooter of money, one might still be alive. I assume they didn’t know they were abducting a competitive shooter. Here is the story from a blog about Jackson, Mississippi, where the event took place: “Thugs try to rob a competitive shooter and gravely pay for it.” A doctor was leaving home to compete in a shooting competition held at Magnolia Pistol Range in Byram at approximately 7:45 AM today.

Armed Bystander Saves Group from Wild Gunman

chicago-gun An armed bystander fired back at a shooter, neutralizing him as a threat. The next best thing to having a firearm on your person when you need it is being near an armed bystander who is skillful and courageous enough to save your life. Famously, Chicago has been extremely resistant to allowing residents to exercise their right to bear arms, despite the Second Amendment. Only a year ago, it would have been illegal to be an armed bystander with the ability to intervene during a criminal attack. Read more [...] Continue reading →

Another Family Saved Because of the Second Amendment

Pistol A man being quick to use his gun meant another family saved. Gun control freaks act as if it were absolutely certain that, if they banned the private ownership of firearms, there would be no more armed criminals. It is a version of Obama’s lie. “If you like your safety, you will get to keep your safety.” A complicit news media never ever points out that virtually all victimizations at the hands of criminals, whether armed or not, could have been stopped or at least helped if the victim Read more [...] Continue reading →

European Jews Beg for Permission to Arm Themselves

concealed carry 5 Why should anyone need to beg for permission to protect their own lives? The Washington Free Beacon shows us what kind of tyranny Western Europe is under: “Europe’s Leading Rabbi: Jews Must Begin Carrying Guns.” One of Europe’s most prominent Jewish organizations is petitioning the European Union to pass new legislation that would permit Jewish community members to carry guns “for the essential protection of their communities,” according to a letter obtained by the Washington Read more [...] Continue reading →
