The 4th Amendment

A Critical Examination of Red Flag Laws

At this point in time – Monday morning, June 13th, 2022 – the only new gun control bill that’s progressed through at least one chamber of Congress is the “Federal Extreme Risk Protection Order Act”, House Resolution 2377.  It would allow U.S. federal judges to order the confiscation of firearms and ammunition from someone deemed an imminent danger to themselves or others.

Local Police Respond to Uvalde Shooting

Are We Close to a Strategy to Mitigate School Shootings?

This is a long post, so grab a cup of coffee.  But if you stick with me, you may learn a few important things. Since my last post… “You’ll Blow Your Lungs Out, Kid!”, posted May 31st, about the Biden administration’s moronic but predictable anti-gun response to the tragic school shooting in Uvalde, Texas …

President Biden on the South Lawn

“You’ll Blow Your Lungs Out, Kid!”

In response to questions about the recent school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, President Biden said on Monday that he remembers speaking with a trauma doctor in New York City 20 years ago who supposedly told him that “… a 9mm bullet blows the lung out of the body”.  He went on to say that 9mm

Revolutionary War Cannon

“You Can’t Own a Cannon!”

Why does President Biden continue to say that the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States never allowed American citizens to own a cannon?  He’s said that over and over again for years.  That’s simply not true.  And over all these years, someone must have made that clear to him. He earned a

Guns or Pot - Your Choice

Here It Comes!

I wrote an article back in September of this year titled “Some of you just lost your right to buy a firearm… no really – I mean it!” The gist of that article is this… “Effective September 1st of this year the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that medical marijuana users cannot buy guns.

Some of you just lost your right to buy a firearm… no really – I mean it!

On Wednesday, August 31st 2016 millions and millions of Americans living in our nine western states lost their 2nd Amendment rights… perhaps permanently… and without any fanfare and almost no media coverage.  In these states millions of Americans may now be added to a “list” which the federal government maintains without any oversight and very

Free-Fire Zones: Our Military Installations Are Defenseless

The Problem: As I watch the shooting situation at Fort Hood unfold today I am struck by the many misunderstandings closely held by the media and the pundits.  Americans hate situations where there is no clear, single solution, and for these sorts of shootings there is no easy solution, so they tend to jump to

Rifle Confiscation in NYC… Today!

If our government made firearms 100% illegal tomorrow and aggressively confiscated all known firearms there would still be literally millions of firearms secreted away by Americans – and American criminals – all over the country… enough to last for decades!  The only difference would be that law-abiding citizens would no longer be able to defend themselves

Why Do Americans Need Guns?

The second sentence of the US Declaration of Independence reads; “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” “Unalienable rights” are rights which cannot be altered, suspended, changed,

27 Words – the 2nd Amendment Explained (Updated 8 Dec, 2013)

The 2nd Amendment of the Constitution of the United States reads; “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” I have always struggled with the wording and logical sequence of the 2nd Amendment, even as I instinctively
