Dr. Carson’s prescription for gun control
Dr. Ben Carson came in third on the CPAC straw poll for president, making him the not-Paul not-Cruz winner. Not to sound flippant, but that’s a significant position, since the top two spots were pretty much pre-ordained. Run through a mental list of all the folks Dr. Carson beat out for that bronze medal, and you can see why it matters, even if you don’t | Read More »
The Washington Times twists the knife on the Connecticut gun registration law.
They had to set it up, though. First, the Washington Times hammered the Connecticut legislature for passing a law that maybe three hundred thousand gun owners are deliberately flouting. Then they noted that Connecticut doesn’t have the resources for putting all those people in jail. After that, and gently hinting that the recent problem that we’re having with over-militarized cops is not exactly compatible with | Read More »
Connecticut to gun owners: hey, did you *try* to register? …SUCKERS!
Well, isn’t this just a fine how-do-you-do: After tens of thousands of defiant gun owners in Connecticut chose not to register their semi-automatic rifles to comply with a hastily-passed gun control law, the state is now taking some action. Officials are reportedly notifying gun owners who submitted late applications that they have one last chance to get rid of their “illegal” weapons. State officials did | Read More »
Piers Morgan is fired (finally)
Well Piers has been given the ax finally due to horrible ratings. I doubt anybody will be missing him. He’s a (words I can only use on twitter) and about time he’d get punished. He was always a horrible debater against really anybody who went up to. We don’t have cable or satellite so I don’t watch CNN. Though even we did I wouldn’t be | Read More »
My #NextPiersMorganJob And #PiersMorganReplacements Tweets
Consider this a palate cleanser. I normally don’t go on twitter just to tweet nonsense, but the news of Piers Morgan’s Primetime Departure and two great hashtags had my creative juices flowing. Enjoy: #NextPiersMorganJob: Joins some third-rate cable start-up, then quickly burns that show, and finally gets a show on @FOXSports1. #tcot #p2 — BigGator5 (@BigGator5) February 24, 2014 #NextPiersMorganJob: Starts a restaurant in #Chicago, | Read More »
Connecticut discovering that Scary Gun control is harder than it looks.
Both Reason and Instapundit have both roundly castigated the Hartford Courant’s faintly hysterical (in all senses of the term) editorial calling for Connecticut cops to harass Connecticut gun owners into providing something better than a 15% registration rate (at best) for their Scary Evil Devil-Guns “military-style assault weapons.” Goodness knows the editorial deserved it, given that it seems to have been written by one of | Read More »
Andy Cuomo’s Dirty Laundry
Andy & Infanticide – Infants no right to life On Sept. 13 of 1984 of that year, another Governor Cuomo, Andrew’s father, Mario, famously laid out his contention that being personally opposed to abortion – the taking of innocent human life – and being a public advocate for its legality and subsequent policy accommodations was a morally sound position for a Catholic in politics.

If you like your concealed-carry permit, you can keep it
There’s a good reason people are growing nervous about the huge amount of information our government is amassing on its citizens. The strange story of John Filippidis should put a chill in the hearts of everyone concerned about protecting their Constitutional rights, especially their gun rights. Filippidis is a Floridian with a concealed-carry permit, who drove to visit family in New Jersey over the Christmas | Read More »
Mike McIntyre cuts and ru… what’s that? CAROLYN MCCARTHY (D, NY-04) is out?
Carolyn “I’m blaming my lung cancer on my father being around asbestos and not my pack-a-day habit?” McCarthy? Carolyn “I used Heath Shuler’s money-laundering-for-lobbyists scheme” McCarthy? Carolyn “PMA Porker” McCarthy? Ayup. Announced it at the same time as McIntyre. My response? “O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!” He chortled in his joy.
The January Supreme Court Docket
The US Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral argument in 12 cases in January. Of the twelve, four are of particular importance unless you count a copyright law case involving MGM and the movie “Raging Bull.” Two cases involve bankruptcy law and one involves tax law and I will not bore the reader with details of these arcane cases. There is also a case | Read More »
Marco Rubio Betrays The Second Amendment
In January, Marco Rubio stated that: “As a strong defender of the 2nd Amendment, I will oppose the President’s attempts to undermine Americans’ constitutional right to bear arms.” Yet a recent news headline read: Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio Team Up on Undetectable Firearms Act There is no need to parse articles for Rubio’s position on that bill. Here is the text of his press release: | Read More »
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 »
