POPPED AT POPEYE’S:  Robber makes fatal error in victim selection

A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.  And when an armed robber threatens a card-carrying good guy's family, he might just be asking for a ballistic prescription administered on the spot.  That happened in San Antonio as a brazen bandito pulled a gun on a man at Popeye's. The robber probably could...

He mentioned how his daughter followed him out of the house that fateful day as he ran towards the church. He sent...

CMP 1911s ARE COMING:  How to claim yours…

  Elections have consequences.  The Trump administration continues to move forward, albeit at the speed of smell, to release a bunch of old surplus Colt 1911 pistols to the general public for purchase through the CMP organization.  The Obama administration slow walked this process and then some.  But at some point in 2018, you...

BRAND SUICIDE:  The NFL’s problems grow…

The National Football League has a big problem.   The tone deaf NFL leadership thought Americans would ignore social justice warrior players disrespecting the American flag, our nation and our servicemen by kneeling during the National Anthem.  At first, their protests sought to draw attention to alleged police brutality.  Then it became racial injustice.  Tomorrow? ...
