Adolf Hitler’s True Legacy

Words mean things. That statement may not be too surprising coming from a writer and editor in recovery. Among the great unwashed—who’s collective IQ continues a steady decline, especially in reading comprehension—it seems that words mean one thing today and another tomorrow. More spe

Back in the Radio Saddle

They say what goes around, comes around. If that be the case, I had a Yogi Bera, “Déjà vu all over again” moment yesterday. I sort of got my start in this outdoor writing business with a radio show on a little 10,000-watt station in Fresno, California, in the mid-’90s. When the statio

San Berdoo and the 2A

I guess it is only natural after a horrific event like the Islamic terror attack in San Bernardino last week that people gather in their enclaves and prattle back and forth over every nuance they can imagine about the event. While I am no psychiatrist—or even pretend to be—I’m sure th

Lunacy Run Amok

The inmates have taken over the asylum, and the rest of us are in peril. Early this morning, Vesper Lee Flanagan turned on his Go Pro Hero POV camera and videoed himself gunning down a 24-year-old TV reporter, Alison Parker, her cameraman Adam Ward, and the lady the reporter was inter

Constitutional Carry Part 1

First, a quick update: Yep, I’m back, and the surgery was a success. Virtually no pain now, but I was considerably weaker than I thought so it is taking longer for me to get back my stamina. I would like to thank each and every one of you for your good wishes and prayers. Seems I had

BATFE Retreats From M855 Ammo Ban

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) has done a temporary about face in its attempt to infringe on our Second Amendment rights via banning the M855 ammunition. I’m sure that most of my readers already know of the proposed ban, but for those who may not, here

Obama’s Petulant Punishment

Our fearless president—you know, the guy who likes to “lead from behind”—is mad at the country for not blindly embracing his Regressive policies. (If you want to understand why I call it “Regressive,” read my Preamble.) While Obama dithers on the world stage—playing golf right after a

Don’t Shoot Yourself in the Foot

There’s a little fracas going on in Texas regarding open carry of firearms. Apparently there are a couple of bills in the Texas state legislature attempting to make the open carrying of firearms legal anywhere without the need of a concealed carry permit or license. Another bill allow
