KOOKY FRINGE LEFTISTS:  Porn-seeking Democrat Mike Dickinson hates guns and God

Kooky fringe leftists would be cute if they weren’t so potentially dangerous if you give them power. Mike Dickinson wants to be a Democrat Congressman from the state of Virginia. Why is an Illinois-centric blog covering a fringe leftist Democrat candidate in a race in Virginia? Well, because Mike Dickinson wants you and me...

SMART DIPLOMACY:  2nd journalist beheaded by ISIS savages; should we send more?

Barack Obama, proud owner of disastrous “Smart Diplomacy”, will probably read in tomorrow’s paper that a second U.S. journalist has been beheaded by the knuckle-dragging ISIS savages. Here at Guns Save Life, we are flummoxed. Should America offer to send ISIS additional US journalists like Geraldo Rivera (aka Jerry Rivers), Alex Wagner, Piers Morgan,...

CHICAGO ISN’T SAFE:  Fewer shootings; more murders in August

Chicago’s August totals are in. It wasn’t pretty, but a long shot. Fewer people got shot and wounded by about 10% from July, but more got kilt overall. And that’s with Chicago PD re-categorizing some deaths as “non-criminal” when they were indeed homicides. The bottom line:  It’s a public relations disaster for Chicago’s Police...

LEARNING ABOUT WEAPONS:  You can’t fight biology, but you can embrace nature and direct it positively

Young boys seem to have an endless fascination with weapons.  It seems to almost be an innate part of growing up for them. In the past decade or two, there’s an increasing number of well-meaning parents who think they can overcome Mother Nature by banning “violent” play and “violent” toys in their boys and...

TEARS OF A CLOWN:  “Anti-racist” says gun owners not fit to have children, worthy of pre-emptive detention

Ah, the tolerance of diversity reigns supreme among leftist liberals. Oh wait, there’s only tolerance of those they agree with.  The rest of us? You’re not fit to have children and you should be pre-emptively interned in concentration camps. Can you spell BIGOT? That’s the word from Tim Wise, the self-described anti-racist author.  No,...

LIKE THAT WILL WORK:  Chicago Pastor says “Stop Shooting!”  Pretty please?

A good guy with a gun trumps all of the best intentions in the world when it comes to deterring violence or stopping bad people with evil in their hearts. Chicago’s “prominent South Side” paster Corey Brooks should know that, but some would give him credit for trying the old “wishful thinking” and “good...
