Who is Steve Dettelbach and Why Should You Care?

In the next week or two, the Senate will begin confirmation hearings on the Biden administration’s second nominee to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). That nominee is Steve Dettelbach. Biden’s first nominee, David Chipman, went down in flames during his confirmation hearing with the Senate. It wasn’t just that Chipman […]

A Ray of Hope for California – SB906 dies in committee. The bill was too much even for California legislators.

Miracle of miracles! The politicians in Sacramento finally produced a bill that was so grotesque that even they could not pass it. We’re referring to SB906, the proposed legislation that would have required parents to disclose information concerning their gun ownership to their children’s school. The bill died in committee last week. I wrote about […]

Parents, Guns, and Schools – SB906 would require parents that own guns to disclose that information to their children’s school administrators. Is it any of their business?

Here’s yet another great, constitutionally sound idea from our wise and good politicians in Sacramento that will certainly increase public safety and decrease crime. SB 906, the school safety: mass casualty threats: firearm disclosure billwould require parents who own guns to disclose what guns they own, how they are stored, and where they are stored […]

Firearms Safe Storage Laws – Are They Just Attempts at Virtue Signaling or Something Far Worse?

There are people in America who don’t believe in the Constitution. Some disagree with certain sections of the document while others believe the entire Constitution to be antiquated and not relevant to modern society. One part that draws considerable interest is the Second Amendment (2A). Today in America we have a major political party, that […]

Gun Confiscation, Could It Happen in America?

Gun confiscation has been the holy grail of the gun-control community for decades. It wasn’t until recently, the 2020 primaries, that it was openly admitted (remember Beto?) by Democrat politicians. But to what purpose? Would gun confiscation have any impact on public safety or violent crime? After decades of decreasing violent crime, we are now […]

Hell Yes, We’re Going to Take Your Guns – Meet H. R. 127

Meet H.R. 127, also known as the Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act. This grotesque piece of anti-Second Amendment (2A) legislation was introduced in the House in January by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX). This bill effectively destroys our 2A protected rights, but the real purpose of H.R. 127 is to lay the foundation […]

How Far Will It Go? – The Loss of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness

We are now almost ten months into our two week “flatten the curve” restrictions. The effect the restrictions had or didn’t have on the spread of the virus is still being debated. The devastating economic impact the restrictions have had on millions of Americans is not up for debate. Nor is the impact of the […]

Gunsite Alumni Shoot (GAS) – It’s a Family Affair

As a gun owner and writer I’ve always emphasized two things: guns are more fun if you actually shoot them and every gun owner should train regularly. This past October I combined those two ideas by taking a five day intermediate pistol class at Gunsite Academy in Paulden AZ. and staying for the GAS match […]
