10 MINUTES YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS:  Dana Loesch rocks the house at CPAC

Some great lines: "You love the ratings.  Crying white mothers are ratings gold to you – many in the legacy media in the back." "Because there are...

Sundown at Coffin Rock

by Raymond K. Paden The old man walked slowly through the dry, fallen leaves of autumn, his practiced eye automatically choosing the bare and stony places in the trail for his feet.

Little Marco Sold Gun Owners Out at CNN Town Hall

Tallyn’s Tactical Owner:  Increasing age to purchase long guns to 21 “Might Help”

Guns are good.  Firearms are tools and they protect children.  Guns save life.  Gun owners know these truths.  At the same time, Scott Tallyn of Tallyn's Tactical Solutions in Peoria thinks that increasing the purchasing age for long guns to 21 "might help" reduce school massacres and violence.  That's like a steak house claiming that...

WILLIAMS:  Time to protect our schools using our nation’s veterans

by Lee Williams If you’ve turned off your TV in disgust over coverage of the Parkland massacre, let me catch you up: It’s the gun’s fault. It’s the President’s fault. It’s the NRA’s fault. It’s the FBI’s fault. It’s Gov. Scott’s fault. It’s DCF’s fault. It’s the (standard capacity) magazine’s fault. It’s the gun...
