CRAY CRAY:  Bloomberg’s Everytown Facebook page brimming with silliness

Michael Bloomberg pledged $50 million to his new Everytown for Gun Control organization. What has that bought? Ineptitude, incompetence, and one do-nothing, bench warming Congressman by the name of Robin Kelly.

SHOOT LIKE A GIRL:  You can’t beat a girl who shoots subguns

In addition to be an adorable teenage girl, she also got an affinity for shooting.  Like most things, she does it well. That’s a Beretta Model 12 subgun. I had one as a...

WELCOME BACK?  James Andel is back, trying to “restore” his name.

  I got a “blocked” call today. I always know when I get a “blocked” call it’s going to be one of two things:  It’s going to be a police officer calling from a “business” phone, or it’s going to be a memorable conversation. Today’s was a memorable one.  It was James Andel. He...

CARD CARRYING GOOD GUYS:  You’re more likely to be killed in an alligator attack than by a CCW licensee

The title of the study would suggest that concealed carry licensees are a murderous bunch, liable to kill...
