Beyond Parody

Zero tolerance policies and the nomenclature used to enforce them belong in The Onion: Ten-year-old Nathan Entingh doesn’t understand why he got suspended from school for three days. According to his father, Paul Entingh, one moment the boy was “goofing off” with his friends in fifth-grade science class, and the next the teacher was taking […]

American Guns in Mexico

Part of the reason why Holder, our Attorney General, suggested that we consider a renewal of the assault weapons ban was because of the supposed number of assault weapons sold in border states that were making it south in to the hands of cartels to be used against border agents and other law enforcement officials. […]

Why Aren’t They Already Required?

I’m not exactly sure why cops, those fine representatives of the state most likely to violate one’s civil rights, aren’t already required to take a course on basic Constitutional law. From a federal judge’s decision in a ruling where a man was denied a concealed Carry permit on first amendment grounds: In denying Paul a […]

Your Average Liberal Anti-gunner

There is only one sort of busybody “anti-x” that I find more annoying and absolutely non-sensical than drug warriors, and that’s your average libertarded anti-gunner. According to Peter Hamm, blatant government failure should result in government suppression, or at least significant government interference, of law abiding individuals wishing to obtain a concealed carry permit in […]

Justice Stevens in Dissent in McDonald

Justice Thomas in Concurrence in McDonald

Justice Thomas, perhaps the only justice on the court who routinely gives deference to the Constitution rather than ideology, or, even worse, Congress, in concurrence in McDonald v City of Chicago: I agree with the Court that the Fourteenth Amendment makes the right to keep and bear arms set forth in the Second Amendment “fully […]

Justice Scalia in Concurrence in McDonald

Justice Scalia, despite being the author of Heller which essentially spells out exactly what the right to bear arms means, remains silent except only to dispute one point made by Justice Stevens in his dissent: that the 2a doesn’t fit the mold of substantive rights to be incorporated because “I know so.” I can find […]

McDonald Quotes by Justice Alito

More quotes from McDonald v City of Chicago: Self-defense is a basic right, recognized by many legal systems from ancient times to the present day, and in Heller, we held that individual self-defense is “the central component” of the Second Amendment right. (footnote removed) [. . .] In sum, it is clear that the Framers […]

Good Stuff

I’ve always been the envy of my gun loving friends when they discover that Buds Gun Shop, the retail location for budsgunshop.com, is a local gun shop here in town.  Now Buds is even better. I’m not in the habit of pimping other people’s stuff, but Buds is a high quality establishment with a fantabulous […]

Say What You Will

Say what you will about Dubbya’s politics, but anyone who lives in a house with its own AK-47 Appreciation Room is good by me.
