Colorado anti-gun state Senator Evie Hudak (D) abruptly resigns her seat. #recall
Because gun control activists cannot protect their own. State Sen. Evie Hudak has decided to resign rather than risk facing a recall election that, should she lose, would flip control of the senate to Republicans, FOX31 Denver is first to report Wednesday. Hudak is expected to make the official announcement with a press release sometime Wednesday morning. Hudak, D-Westminster, could have been the third Democratic | Read More »
Joe Biden gets a Detroit woman killed.
Good job there, Mr. Vice President: It was shortly before 1 a.m. Nov. 2 and Renisha McBride was involved in an accident with a parked vehicle in Detroit. More than two hours later and six blocks away, she was shot in the face by a man who told police he thought someone was breaking into his Dearborn Heights home. The 54-year-old homeowner, according to police, | Read More »
Two pictures that show the utter mendacity of anti-gun websites.
This is a time where two pictures are worth more than a thousand words each:
The single woman society
The Virginia governor’s race was yet another example of the massive voting gap in a huge demographic: single people, particularly single women. According to exit polls, Republican Ken Cuccinelli won handily on the “hard” issues facing Virginia voters, and won most other demographic slices, but Democrat Terry McAuliffe won big with single people, crushing Cuccinelli by nearly fifty points among single women. A similar dynamic could be | Read More »
Another gun company predictably fleeing New York.
This is going around: Nearly 10 months since New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D.) signed the SAFE Act, opposition to the law continues to increase, three gun companies have announced plans to leave the state, and a key provision in the law has been quietly delayed. American Tactical Imports is the third gun company to announce it would be leaving the state and will be | Read More »
President Bill Clinton Supports Ending Background Checks to Buy Guns
Today, using the 50th Anniversary of the Martin Luther King, Jr. “I Have a Dream” speech as his backdrop, former President Bill Clinton called for the elimination of background checks to purchase guns. Ever since the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1994, which Bill Clinton himself signed into law, purchases of firearms in every state must go through a firearms background check that includes | Read More »
Trayvon mythology and anti-civilization
The “Justice for Trayvon” crowd is perpetuating a number of myths that have nothing to do with the facts of the case, beginning with the fashionable new notion that “justice” was not served at George Zimmerman’s murder trial. On the contrary, the law was bent and warped out of shape to allow that trial to exist at all, leading celebrity lawyer Alan Dershowitz to say | Read More »
Supporter of Colorado State Senator Angela Giron Arrested While Canvassing
While canvassing a neighborhood in Pueblo, Colorado for Pueblo United For Angela, a volunteer was arrested over the weekend on a failure to appear warrant which may be related to a domestic violence charge. Elric Franco went door-to-door on the 1600 block of Bunker Hill located on Pueblo’s east side and asked residents who had signed the petition to recall Colorado State Senator Giron to rescind their signatures.

Tech at Night (Well, Sunday Morning): Do not let them ban 3D printing. Vitter takes on Obamaphone and a Democrat donor profiting from it.
By my records this is the 382nd edition of Tech at Night. This is however the one that was prepared on my 35th birthday (though sorry, I didn’t get it written until Sunday morning).
If they try to ban 3D printers in the name of gun control, remember that they’re killing children if they do it. 3D printing is an important technology and the fascists must not be allowed to use gun control to gut it. But they will try. Just watch.
Oh look, fugitive at large in New Zealand (and I mean large) Kim Dotcom has become a patent troll. Remember: he’s a convicted felon and fraudster, having stolen money and embezzled money. He ran a large copyright infringement ring, which he now has restarted in New Zealand, having paid off the government through promises of ‘investment’ to avoid being deported despite indictments in the US and convictions in Germany and Hong Kong.
Anyone who buys a ‘patent’ from him should himself be investigated for money laundering.

Swinging Colorado Back
“Colorado is no longer politically purple. Nope. These days it’s somewhere between Air Force and Midnight on the blue scale.” Curtis Hubbard, editor of the editorial page for the Denver Post, declared the above earlier this year in an article detailing the success of progressive Democrats in legislating restrictions on the 2nd Amendment, providing in-state tuition to illegal immigrants, and enshrining into law the long | Read More »
Status check on various gunmakers’ flights from various states.
Let’s look at the practical results of gun control, shall we? Three states have recently signed into law some hefty gun control laws; what were the results? Colorado: Magpul is now making some magazines and sights outside of the state. They’re also working on a new HQ. Connecticut: PTR Industries will be moving out of the state shortly. It’s rumored that other companies will follow. | Read More »
Gun Control: Treating The Symptoms
As the nation struggles to understand the attack at the Boston Marathon, the debate over background checks for gun buyers has received more attention from gun control advocates as a result. The left argues that stricter gun control laws might prevent tragedies such as the Boston bombings and the Newtown shooting. The right points out that criminals, including the Boston bombers, do not adhere to | Read More »
The Boston Marathon bombers had… illegal guns.
Which is impossible, right? A Massachusetts police official say the brothers suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon before having shootouts with authorities didn’t have gun permits. Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas tells The Associated Press in an interview Sunday that neither Tamerlan Tsarnaev (tsahr-NEYE’-ehv) nor his brother Dzhokhar had permission to carry firearms. …I mean, Massachusetts has strict gun control laws. You’re not allowed to | Read More »
The most important thing about yesterday’s vote: national reciprocal concealed-carry is doable.
Senator John Cornyn’s (R, Texas) common-sense proposal that states with concealed-carry permits recognize other states’ concealed-carry permits was up for a vote yesterday as an amendment to Reid’s otherwise-useless “gun control” bill; and it came close to passing. Pretty freaking close, in fact (57/43). Flip South Dakota, New Hampshire, and West Virginia next year, and that’s sixty for cloture and let’s-see-what-bill-Obama-won’t-dare-veto. Here’s Sen. Cornyn’s description | Read More »
