BAD NEWS FOR GUN CONTROL FREAKS!  Americans reject surrendering their God-given rights

  Pity the poor gun control lobby. Those crybabies aren’t going to want to hear the latest news from Gallup. Only one in four Americans support banning handguns in America and thereby surrendering their God-given right to self-defense.  After all, Sam Colt’s device is the only real tool that makes the very young and...

ELECTION:  That’s anti-gun desperation you’re smelling at the national level

ARRESTED:  Anti-violence group organizer and another member arrested for violent attack

  Why are anti-gun / anti-violence activists so violent? Could it be they don’t trust themselves with guns so they don’t want anyone else to have them? Could it be there are just naive? All we know is that they spew all sorts of nasty threats via social media at gun owners (here, here,...

RAT HOLE:   A single donor funds one Illinois anti-gun PAC

How bad is it for the anti-gun groups in Illinois? Bad. “Vewy, vewy bad!” as Elmer Fudd might say. The Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence, for instance, closed their Springfield office a few years ago and fired their lobbyist because they couldn’t afford either.  They also issued pink slips to many of their Chicago...
