October 1, 2022

It proved quite a learning experience for a quartet of unemployed rocket scientists last month east of Houston.  These young men apparently never knew that most folks in the Lone Star State own firearms.  Or maybe these wizards of smart thought the four of them, wearing masks and carrying pistols, would be able intimidate...

Like guns, gasoline represents freedom

September 29, 2022

North Carolina’s East Henderson Youth Football and Cheerleading League (EHYFC) poked a woke hornet’s next by offering an AR-15 as the grand prize in a fundraiser for kids sports.  Unsurprisingly, some easily-offended types turned their ire on the EHYFC for such an “insensitive” and “deplorable” choice of prizes. But not only did the youth...
