SPECIAL KIND OF STUPID: Implement testing before one can exercise Constitutional rights?

SPECIAL KIND OF STUPID:  Implement testing before one can exercise Constitutional rights?

Imagine someone writing a letter to the editor of their local newspaper advocating for literacy tests for people before they would be allowed to vote. Or submitting a letter advocating Americans be required to take a religious test before they would be allowed to choose their house of worship? Anyone advocating either of the...

NOBODY IS SAFE IN CHICAGO… CSU student raped, locked in trunk by 17-year-old serial rapist

NOBODY IS SAFE IN CHICAGO…  CSU student raped, locked in trunk by 17-year-old serial rapist

Chicago’s violent crime continues to run rampant, thanks in big part to that city’s long history of strict gun control which has emboldened criminals possessing guns unlawfully.   It’s far worse than most Americans would tolerate, but the residents of Chicago have become numb to it. It’s so bad that not even off-duty cops are...

MOONBATTERY:  Liam Neeson all in favor of gun controls in America

  Liam Neeson. Loved him in “Taken”. Won’t be watching any more movies of his, including his most recent flick A Walk Among the Tombstones where he uses (surprise!) GUNS in his role. Thanks, Liam, for self-identifying as an idiot. Maybe his wife’s untimely death affected him mentally.  Or maybe he’s just a moonbat...

PC POLICE:  Coaches better beaten to death than to use gun to save self

Wichita, Kansas is the scene of the latest case of political correctness ruling the day over common sense. A youth league football coach faced a parent angry over lack of playing time for their little crumb cruncher.

ARE WE TRAINING WRONG?  When citizens fight back (aka: Carry your damned gun!)

  American Handgunner magazine has a great article “When Citizens Fight Back” by trainer Tom Givens from Memphis, Tennessee, detailing his thoughts about how an armed citizen needs to be trained differently than a cop or a soldier.  Cops, soldiers and civilian carriers face different threats, obviously, and if citizens are taught what is...

REDIRECT:  New York Times reports on redirection of gun control efforts from black guns to handguns

      The New York Times reports on the re-direction of the gun control movement (and at the same time lends its diminished influence towards driving public policy in the same direction as well)… all the while being politically correct in ignoring the biggest problem leading to murderous violence and here’s a hint: ...

YOU *CAN* FIX STUPID: American social justice warrior will be staying in North Korea for a while

YOU *CAN* FIX STUPID:  American social justice warrior will be staying in North Korea for a while

  Sometimes we joke here at Guns Save Life about how you can’t fix stupid.   Especially when it comes to the true fringe-left believers of gun control. We know that this isn’t completely true, but it takes a great deal of work and re-education to overcome years of brainwashing. As young, idealistic Mathew Miller...

DON’T TREAD ON ME:  Not in Illinois…

  Just don’t see a “Don’t Tread On Me” special license plate being issued by our die-hard Democrat Secretary of State Jesse White… But then again, a whole lot of people said I’d never have an Illinois concealed carry license in my pocket either.   (Washington Free Beacon) – Virginia’s special “Don’t Tread on...

PANTS ARE ON FIRE:  Moms Demand Action making fudge with “facts”

Miguel at Gun Free Zone has a great post about how Moms Demand Action are busy making fudge. Fudge as in fudging the truth into some bastardized “facts” to promote their flawed message. What flavor of fudge are the Mommies making up in the kitchen?  They’re trying to claim that most every mass shooting...
