April 28, 2020

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker’s took a big setback yesterday.  He thought he had absolute authority to dictate all manner of restrictions upon the Land of Lincoln’s residents.  He thought wrong.  And a Clay County court told him so.

For instance, in the middle of a purported pandemic, he complained that some Illinois medical facilities didn’t have enough masks, gloves,...

April 21, 2020

We didn’t hear much about a Moms Demand Action-branded promo graphic that we ran in the April issue of GunNews.  Not until a 20-year-old college kid sent me a nasty text, accusing *us* of racism for running it. “How about you stop discriminating against black men?
